I love being a part of the Tutorial Medley group.  It allows me to provide the free tutorials on Tuesdays and Fridays.  Today I have a card using the Friends Are Like Seashells bundle.  Oh, the possibilities are endless with this bundle!  The card today was created by me.

Tutorial Medley March Friends Are Like Seashells

Designer Paper: Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper (154288)

 

Measurements:

Card Base: Seaside Spray 4 ¼ x 11, score at 5 ½, 6 ¾

Cardstock #2: Crumb Cake 1 x 4, Crumb Cake 4 x 4

Cardstock #3: Basic White 3 7/8 x 3 7/8, scrap for sentiment, seashell

Designer Paper #1: Sand & Sea 7/8 x 3 7/8

 

Instructions:

Fold and burnish the card base. Glue the space between the card spine and the next fold down.

In the small space, glue the thin Crumb Cake piece and the Sand & Sea DSP thin strip.

Glue down the large Crumb Cake piece.

On the Basic White large piece, rub over the surface with an Embossing Buddy or a dryer sheet to remove the static.

Randomly stamp the sand dollar and the starfish over this piece using Versamark. Don’t be afraid to go off the edges.

Add the Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and then heat with the Heat Tool.

Trace around the sand dollars and starfish with the light Crumb Cake blend.

Make a mask for the sand dollar and starfish by stamping them on a sticky note making sure that you stamp on the sticky part. Cut out on the lines. I made about three of each.

Cover the images with the sticky notes and add Crumb Cake ink with a Blender Brush. You might need to add color to a section and then move the masks to another area. Also add the Crumb Cake dots while images are covered. Keep working until the whole layer is covered.

Glue this layer down on the Crumb Cake layer.

On scrap Basic White, stamp the seashell in Versamark, add embossing powder, and heat.

Use the dies to cut out the seashell. Parts will still be attached and will need to be cut with snips. You could also choose to just cut out the whole seashell with snips.

Use a Blender Brush to add Seaside Spray ink to the seashell. Rub away extra ink with a paper towel.

Place the cut out in the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder and run through the SU Cut & Emboss Machine. Add the seashell with dimensionals.

Stamp the sentiment on Basic White with Versamark, add embossing powder, and heat. Trim the sentiment. Add dimensionals to the back. Add some of the gold twine from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack. You might need to add additional dimensionals to get the sentiment to stick well.

Add Gold Glitter Enamel Dots to embellish.

Tie the gold trim around the designer paper section and tie into a knot. Make a bow and add with a rolled up glue dot. This twine does unravel easily.

For the inside, emboss a sentiment in gold. Add a sand dollar down in the bottom corner as on the front. Trace with a light Crumb Cake Blend, add a mask and the dots and use a Blender Brush to add Crumb Cake color.

Enjoy your beautiful card!

Color Fusers Blog Hop for March 2021

Welcome to the Color Fusers Blog Hop for March. We are using the colors Seaside Spray, Gray Granite, and Early Espresso.  You might have just come from Gail.  If so, wow!  If you are just beginning please visit everyone!

These colors are beautiful together, but I must confess that I had a hard time with them.  I think I came up with a beautiful card.

Color Fusers Poppy Moments by Jo Anne Hewins

Start with a card base of Thick Basic White 4 1/4 x 11, score and fold at 5 1/2.

The Gray Granite background is cut from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper.  Cut it to fit the front of the card at 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.

The next layer of Early Espresso is 3 3/8 x 4 5/8.  The Seaside Spray layer is from the Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper.  Cut it to 3 1/2 x 4 3/4.

Stamp the saying from Friendly Flamingo in Early Espresso.  Set it up on the Stamparatus to get a good dark image since you can stamp it more than once.

Color Fusers Poppy Moments Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

Make the flowers using the Poppy Moments dies.  Cut 2 of the solid flowers and 4 of the detailed flowers from Basic White card stock.  Use a sponge dauber to add a little bit of Seaside Spray ink to the solid flowers.  Add just a tease of color.  Crumple up the detailed flowers and straighten a little add to the flower by gluing the center only.  Add 2 of these per flower a little askew.  Do this for both flowers.  The centers are cut using the same dies from the In Good Taste DSP.

Cut three leaf stems from Early Espresso.  

Assemble and glue.

Add the layer with dimensionals.

Color Fusers Poppy Moments Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

Here's the inside of the card.  The saying is from the Friendly Flamingo stamp set.  Add an additional leaf stem.

NC Blog Hop for February Shake Rattle and Roll

Welcome to the NC Blog Hop for February!  This month we are going to shake it all up!  This is so exciting!  I can't wait to see what everyone has in store.  You might just be beginning or maybe you came from Tracie's blog.  Either way, you are in for a treat!

Join us blog

I'll be using the Hey Chick bundle and the Hey Birthday Chick bundle.  The dies with these bundles are fantastic.  The offer for these bundles goes until June 30th.  You'll love them.  Click on the highlighted links to see them.  Here's my card.

NC Blog Hop Hey Chick by Jo Anne Hewins

Those chickens are so much fun!  You can't tell from the picture, but the chicken will wobble back and forth on the card.  To give you the full effect I had to make a video for you.  You'll see it at the end.

Start with a base of Early Espresso that measures 4 1/4 x 11, score and fold at 5 1/2.

The patterned paper is from the Brights 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper.  Cut the Daffodil Delight layer to 4 1/8 x 5 3/8.  If you are using 12 x 12 this would be a big waste of paper since you would not be able to cut but 4 backgrounds from a sheet instead of the regular 6.  I don't mind the little bit of extra paper when using the 6 x 6 paper.  Use the All Wired Up background stamp on this layer.  I set it up on my Stamparatus.  It's so much easier to stamp a background stamp with the Stamparatus!  Add to the card front.

Cut 2 fences in early espresso using the Birthday Chick dies.

Cut 1 cornstalk and 3 leaves for corn in Garden Green using the Chick dies.

Cut 3 ears of corn from Mango Melody using the Brights 6 x 6.

Assemble the cornstalk and corn with its leaves.  I know that there is a more technical way to say this but it escapes me.  Please forgive!

Add the fence from each side.  They won't quite meet in the middle but that will be covered up.

NC Blog Hop Hey Birthday Chick Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

For the added layer, cut early espresso to 2 1/2 x 4 1/4.  Cut Mango Melody paper to 2 3/8 x 4 1/8.  Cut a strip of Garden Green to 1/4 inch to place along the bottom of this layer.  The grass is cut using the Dandy Wishes dies.  Cut two and glue to the ends of the layer.  Turn the one on the right backwards so the grass points to the right.

Stamp saying from the Hey Chick stamp set in Early Espresso.  In the video I forget to stamp this.  Ideally I would put the saying on a Stamparatus so you could stamp more than once and get a good dark image.

Stamp the chick with the balloom (Hey Birthday Chick) on Thick Basic White.  Color with Light Daffodil Delight, Light Real Red and Dark Mango Melody blends.  Cut with the Birthday Chick dies.  Stamp the balloon part of the stamp on a dotted piece of 6 x 6 Daffodil Delight.  Fussy cut and add this over the balloon.  This is called paper piecing.

Wobbles

I added a wobble to the back of the chick.  Find them here.  There is a spring with peel off taped ends.  It's so easy!  Place the chick so that it does not cover the saying.

Add this layer with dimensionals.

NC Blog Hop Hey Birthday Chick Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

Here's the inside.  The HAPPY BIRTHDAY is from the Birthday Chick dies.  I used Mango Melody and Daffodil Delight ink pads with a Blender Brush to color.

Here's the video.  Enjoy.

 

 

Next up is Sue.  I know she has a great project.  I appreciate your time today.  Thanks for joining me.

Facebook Live 2.24.2021 Pop-up Card with Butterfly Brilliance

Today I want to share with you the card we made on Facebook Live this past Wednesday.  I used the soon to be available Butterfly Brilliance stamp set along with the Brilliant Wings dies.  They do come together as the Butterfly Brilliance bundle.  Look below for a link to a flyer about these items!  Here is the card front, but the surprise is on the inside!

Butterfly Brillance Pop Up Card by Jo Anne Hewins

The card base is Basic Black measuring 4 1/4 x 11, scored and folded at 5 1/2.

Finish the inside of the card first.  I decorated the 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Basic White at the bottom.  I used the True Love black and white designer series paper.  I needed just a 3/4 x 4 piece of the dots and a 1/2 x 4 piece of the diagonal stripe.  Adhere so that a little of the diagonal shows along the top.  Add the whole piece to the bottom of the inside.

The saying is from the Happy Thoughts stamp set on page 28 of the Jan-June Mini.  Make sure you leave room for the inside mechanism when stamping.

Butterfly Brillance Pop Up Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

The mechanism is also in Basic Black.  I think it looks better to match the card base color.  It measures 3 1/2 x 4 1/4.  Score at 3/4, 1 1/2, 2 1/4, 3 on the short side.  Fold and burnish your folds all in the same direction.  We are making a box.  Add glue or Tear & Tape to the smallest area.  Adhere to make the box.  Watch the video for a good tip.

You want the seam of the box to be hidden in the seam of the card fold so that it won't show.  Add adhesive to the bottom of the box and add to the card.  Get it as close to the fold as possible but you do want it to be able to fold.  Now add adhesive to the box side that goes to the back of the card front.  Simply fold the card closed to adhere this.  You might want to watch the video is make it more clear.

For the front of the card, I used the Oh So Ombre Designer Series Paper.  Remember that Sale-a-Bration ends on Sunday, February 28th.  If you want this paper don't wait!  Cut the paper to 4 1/8 x 5 3/8.  Stamp the butterflies from the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set in Bermuda Bay on this paper.  Use the Stamparatus.  I have some tips on the video.

Butterfly Brillance Pop Up Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

The dotted paper is from the True Love Designer Series Paper.  Cut a strip that is 1 1/4 x 5 3/8.  Cut the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes dies using the diagonal stripe paper.  Use the Brilliant Wings dies to cut the detailed butterfly from Bermuda Bay card stock.  Add with dimensionals on the body of the butterfly.

The saying is from the Punch Party stamp set (from Sale-a-Bration if you spend $300).  I got the shape from the Messages dies from page 35 of the Jan-June Mini.  Stamp in Memento Black ink.  Put a 1/2 inch strip of the Oh So Ombre paper behind the saying.

To decorate the pop-up of the card, stamp the butterflies from Butterfly Brilliance on the circle paper from Oh So Ombre and on a Basic White piece.  Cut using the dies from Brilliant Wings.  They cut all the butterflies at one time.  That's pretty neat.

Butterfly Brillance Pop Up Side View by Jo Anne Hewins

When adding the pieces remember that you don't want anything to stick out from the sides.  You want to be careful of any glue that could make the card unable to open.  You can make the pieces more sturdy by putting glue dots where needed.

So here is the video.  I hope it makes my directions more clear.

 

The Butterfly Brilliance bundle will be in the new upcoming 2021-2022 annual catalog.  There are some beautiful designer papers that are available as well.  Find the flyer here.  These items are available for demonstrators now and for everyone March 2 through May 3rd.  The bundle will be available later, but the designer paper is while supplies last.
