Wildly Happy About the Stars

Hello to you today!  I have a card that I made for my daughter Jessie's birthday recently.  Now you might think that there is a lot of stuff going on, but it all has a meaning for Jessie.

Wild About You Birthday Card by Jo Anne Hewins

First of all Jessie is the mother of my one and only grandchild Sagan.  Sagan is loving pandas so they are a big part of their home.  There is a panda chair and stuffed pandas.  The list goes on.  So what is more perfect than a mother panda and her baby.  That's my Jessie and Sagan.  

Second, Sagan was kind of named after Carl Sagan from back in the 70's.  Do any of you remember him?  He's the Cosmos guy.  Therefore, we have the stars and the moon.

That's the card.  I saw the pandas in front of the plants on someone else's card somewhere.  I can't seem to find where right now.  It's not original.

The card base is Night of Navy that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  The next layer is Seaside Spray.  It is cut to 4 1/8 x 5 3/8.  Stamp the star swirls using the Stargazing stamp set in Night of Navy.  Now add the small starts from the So Many Stars stamp set.  That's also in navy.

The leaves are cut in Pear Pizzazz cardstock.  Use the Well Written dies.  Glue to the card.

The pandas are stamped on Whisper White in Tuxedo Memento Black ink.  Go over some of the lines in the stamp with a  Light Smoky Slate blend.  Fussy cut and add to the card with dimensionals.

Stamp the moon from Stargazing on Whisper White in Daffodil Delight.  Fussy cut and add to the card.

The Happy Birthday is from the Piece of Cake stamp set.  Stamp in navy and cut apart.  Glue to the card. Wild About You Birthday Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

Here is the inside of the card.  The saying is from the Little Twinkle stamp set.  Stamp the tiny stars from So Many Stars in navy and Seaside Spray.

Wild About You Birthday Card for Jessie by Jo Anne Hewins

I say a little late Happy Birthday to my sweet girl.  I told her that I also realize that since Sagan's birth, I don't think we have any pictures of Jessie alone!

One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop for October - Spooktacular

Welcome to the One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop for October.  This is a Spooktacular event.  So get ready to be frightened and delighted by lots of Halloween ideas!

Image may contain: text

I am using the Birds of a Feather stamp set for my projects.  Don't you love those birds.  I go for the cute, not scary!

OSAT October Birds of a Feather Card by Jo Anne Hewins

This card has an arm that crosses over the card.  It's really neat.

Start with a card base of Basic Black that measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  Cut a piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock to 3 x 11.  Score at 5 1/2.  Glue this to the center of the base.  Use Grid Paper to help get this little card straight.  Use the Pumpkin Pie gingham paper from the Regals Designer Series Paper.  Cut this to 2 7/8 x 5 1/2.  Add to the front.

Cut Silver Foil to 1/4 inch.  Butt on either side of the 3 inch card.

Cut a piece of Pumpkin Pie to 1 1/2 x 5 1/2.  Score at 1 inch.  Use the Triple Banner Punch at the other end.  Stamp the banner with the Trick or Treat stamp from Birds of a Feather in the same color randomly.  Decide where you would like to have this arm.  Glue the short end to the back of the card.

OSAT October Birds of a Feather Close Up of Card by Jo Anne Hewins

Cut a Basic Black scallop circle using the Layering Circles dies.  Stamp the pirate bird in Tuxedo Memento Black ink.  Color with Blends.  I used Light and Dark Daffodil Delight, Light and Dark Pumpkin Pie, Light and Dark Highland Heather, and Light Smoky Slate.  Fussy cut.  Put dimensionals on the back of the duck.  Take Silver Metallic Thread and run it around several fingers, slip it off, and lay it down on the dimensionals.  Play with the thread until you get it the way you like it.  Add to the scallop circle.  Glue the circle to the arm.  Make sure that you do not put glue on the parts that stick over the arm.

OSAT October Birds of a Feather Card Open by Jo Anne Hewins

I made a box to go with this card using the Stitched Nested Labels dies.  I found this box originally by Jeanette Cobb.  Of course I had to change a few things to make it my own.

OSAT October Birds of a Feather Box by Jo Anne Hewins

You can get two of these boxes from one sheet of cardstock.  Begin with a piece of Basic Black measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  Cut 2 inches off  so that you have a piece of 2 x 8 1/2.  Score this piece at 1 3/8, 2 3/4, 5 3/4, and 7 1/8 the long way.  Score at 1/2 and 1 1/2 on the short side.

I have a video showing how to make the box.  With the measurements above I think you will be fine.

 

Jeanette made the box to hold a 3 x 3 sticky note pad.  She punched a hole on the side to hold a pencil.  I decided that this box needed candy!  I used a 3 x 6 Gusseted Cello Bag and filled it with a candy corn assortment.  I folded over the bag and stapled it shut.  The little skull stamp is from the September Paper Pumpkin stamp set.  Stamp in black on a white scrap.  Punch with the 1 inch circle punch.  Add a frame of Pumpkin Pie scallops with the Layering Circles dies.  Add with a dimensional. 

OSAT October Birds of a Feather Box from the Top by Jo Anne Hewins

I also added a little handle for the box.  Use the new black Scalloped Edge Ribbon.  Use about 12 inches of ribbon.  Punch a small hole, add the ribbon from the outside, tie a knot.  Do that for each side.

So here are the box and card together.

Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge # 582 Gather Together

Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #582.  We have a sketch this week.

My card is actually this sketch turned upside down.  I am using the Gather Together bundle.  This consists of the Gather Together stamp set and the Gathered Leaves dies.  

CCMC #582 Gather Together Bundle Card by Jo Anne Hewins

I love the Come to Gather Designer Series Paper that also goes with the Gather Together bundle.  I am loving Pretty Peacock for the fall!  It's not traditional, but somehow it is perfect!

Start with a card base of Pretty Peacock that measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.

The next layer of pumpkins and leaves designer paper is cut to 4 x 5 1/4.  The linen look of these papers is just so pretty.

Now another layer of Pretty Peacock measuring 3 x 4 1/4 is needed.  The dotted linen look paper is next and is 2 7/8 x 4 1/8.  All the layers add a lot to a card.

Use the Stitched Shapes dies to cut an oval from Very Vanilla.  Attach to the card with dimensionals.

CCMC  #582 Gather Together Bundle by Jo Anne Hewins

 

Stamp the large leaf from Gather Together on Very Vanilla card stock.  Stamp in Pretty Peacock.   Color in the leaf with Pretty Peacock ink.  To do this simply press the pad together in the center to get ink in the lid.  Use an Aqua Painter to color.  Let dry.  Stamp the little dots cluster stamp on the leaf in Early Espresso.  Cut out the leaf with the Gathered Leaves dies.  Glue to the card.

I used another design from the Come To Gather designer paper for a little strip of interest behind the saying.  It measures 1/2 x 2 7/8.  Stamp the saying on a piece of Very Vanilla that is 3/4 x 2 1/4.  Stamp in Pretty Peacock.  For both the designer paper and the saying attach with glue where it overlaps the oval.  Use dimensionals where it does not.

CCMC #582 Gather Together Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

Here is the inside of the card.  The saying is from the Gather Together stamp set.  Stamp another leaf just as on the front of the card.

Winter Woods Ice Card

Hello to you today!  I have a card for you using the Winter Woods stamp set.  This set is in the Annual Catalog on page 71.  I know you are probably excited about the Holiday catalog, but don't forget that we have some great Christmas stamps and dies in the Annual catalog.  Here's my card for today.

Winter Woods Christmas Ice by Jo Anne Hewins

Melissa Kerman has a technique that she calls Black Ice.  This technique might just be Ice.

Begin with a card base of Real Red measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  Cut another layer of Real Red that is 4 1/8 x 5 3/8.  That's just a tiny bit smaller that the size of the card.  Run this layer through your die cutting machine with the Tin Tile Embossing Folder.  Be sure to center the paper with the design.  It just looks so much better if you do this.  Adhere the layer with glue.

Cut a layer of Whisper White with the 4th die in of the Stitched Rectangle dies.

Start with a piece of Silver Foil that measures 2 3/4 x 4 1/4.  Stamp the tree in Stazon Black.  I used the Stamparatus to stamp my tree.  Sometimes the Stazon will need to be stamped more than once.  I did use some painters tape on the top and bottom of the foil just barely covering the edge.  I also put the magnets near the sides.  The ink really wants to pull up the paper.

Let the ink dry completely or use your Heat Tool to dry it.

Take a Versamark ink pad.  Starting at the top of the foil pull the open pad straight down.  Repeat until the piece is covered.  Now cover the foil in Clear Emboss Powder and heat.  The surface will not be smooth.  That's the way we want it.  Now cut this piece with the 5th Stitched Rectangle.  Add to the card.

Winter Woods Christmas Ice Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

Adhere all of the pieces.  Add some Red Rhinestones to the tree.

The stamp for the saying is from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set.  Stamp in Real Red and punch with the Classic Label Punch.  Glue to the card.

Winter Woods Christmas Ice Inside of Card by Jo Anne Hewins

The saying on the inside of the card is from the Making Christmas Bright stamp set.  It's also in the Annual Catalog.

The pine boughs are in Pear Pizzazz and the pine cone is in Soft Suede.  These stamps are in the Winter Woods set.
