Happiest of Birthdays with Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper

It's time for the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #659.  We have a sketch!

CCMC659

I trying to make myself use my designer series paper instead of hoarding it.  So my card for today uses the Sand & Sea DSP.

CCMC #659 Sand & Sea DSP by Jo Anne Hewins

Start with a base of Thick Basic White that measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  Score this at 4 1/4 and folder using a Bone Folder to burnish the fold.

Cut the water rippling paper to fit the card front at 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  Glue this to the front.  Glue is really the better way to go.  It gives you just a little give to fit the paper perfectly.

Choose two different patterns and cut them to 3 1/4 x 4 1/4.

Glue one of these in the upper right corner leaving about 3/4 inch on the top and side.

Use the Happiest of Birthdays stamp set to stamp the largest saying on the second paper.  Use the Stamparatus to get a perfect dark print.  I stamped in Melon Mambo.  Add this layer over the first leaving about 3/4 on the top and side of this panel.

Add a strip of the sand colored paper that is 1/2 x 4 1/4 down the left side.  Use the sketch to help with placement.

CCMC #659 Sand & Sea Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

There is a sheet of designer paper with seashells.  Pick some to cut apart and add to embellish the card front.  Glue most of them, but add a couple with dimensionals.

CCMC#659 Sand & Sea Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

For the inside of the card, the saying is from the Friendly Flamingo stamp set.  Stamp in Melon Mambo.   Add a few more shells in the corner.

This is a pretty easy card.  I hope you will try it!

Parcels & Petals One Last Good-bye

It's always so exciting when we have a new catalog coming!  It's so much fun to see new products and dream of what to make with them.  It's also a little sad because we have to say good-bye to some sets and dies.  Today I'm using the Parcels & Petals stamp set along with the Perfect Parcels dies.  I will admit that the parcel is a bit difficult to put together, but the stamp set makes beautiful cards.

Parcels & Petals Card by Jo Anne Hewins

The base of this card is So Saffron.  It measures 4 1/4 x 11, score and fold at 5 1/2.  I'm not much of a yellow person, but today this seemed perfect.  I should use yellows more often.  It's a pretty card.  Stamp the 3 flower stamp in the upper right and the lower left corners.  Add a few leaves with stamped off Pear Pizzazz.

The next layer is cut to 3 3/4 x 5 also from So Saffron.  Stamp the flowers all over this layer changing the orientation of the stamp to fit the flowers together.  Add leaves with stamped off Pear Pizzazz.  Drag the edges of the card across the surface of the So Saffron pad all around it.  This will give some definition to the layer.

Run some of the white twine from the Snail Mail Twine Combo Pack around the lower part of the card twice and tape to the center of the front.

Cut the detailed piece from the Perfect Parcels dies using the detailed die and the outline die together.  Add over the twine with dimensionals.

Stamp the saying on Basic White in So Saffron.  Cut this out with the dies.  Glue down.

Parcels & Petals Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

Stamp the flowers stamp two times on Basic White.   Cut out all three layers of each flower with Paper Snips.  Add the layers together a little askew with glue dots and add to the card with dimensionals.  Stamp 4 leaves in Pear Pizzazz and cut out.  Add these.  Some can be glued and some are added with dimensionals.  Add some of the Elegant Faceted Gems to the center of the flowers.

Parcels & Petals Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

For the inside, stamp the flowers along the bottom of the insert and add leaves.  Stamp the saying in Pear Pizzazz.  If you are a stamper you know why I have the saying framed.  I did not stamp the saying straight.  This was a way to cover my mistake and save starting over.

I really had not used this set in a while, but I will miss it.  If you need it, it's on the Last Chance List.
