Sweet Silhouettes and Woven Heirlooms

I experimented a little with the Sweet Silhouettes Dies recently.  Don't you just love that tree!  The card I have today is a little out of my box.  You'll have to tell me what you think about it.  I am not an orange person, but something does draw me to this card.

Besides the tree, my card features the Woven Threads Designer Series Paper.  I used it for the whole card.  Let's see how it was made.

The card base is Terracotta Tile cut to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  I added a layer of the Woven Threads paper in the Terracotta Tile.  This paper adds just a hint of texture to the card.  I cut this layer 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 to cover almost the entire front of the card.

The tree was cut from the Peacock patterned paper from Woven Threads.  I added it to also cover much of the front.  For this I used my Silicone Craft Sheet, a small glob of Multipurpose Glue, and a sponge.  Try to hold the tree in one place so you don't get glue on the front.

Using the Layering Squares, I made a frame for the lower left of the card using yet another pattern from Woven Threads.  This is glued directly to the card front.

Now stamp the saying from Woven Heirlooms in Pretty Peacock on the Sahara Sand paper from Woven Threads.  Cut the saying apart and glue down the center of the card.

Finish up with a bow of Linen Thread added with a glue dot.

I will say that this is a close up card.  It just doesn't show as well from a distance if that makes sense.  The words would show up better on Whisper White, but that wasn't the look I wanted.

Here's the inside of the card.  Now, I love this!  I should probably make it the outside!  I might work on some version of that.  The Sahara Sand paper is 4 1/8 x 5 3/8.  Add parts of the tree cut from the Peacock paper.  These are still all from Woven Threads.  The saying is part of Woven Heirlooms.  Hint:  To get the tree coming from the right side of the paper, turn the paper over and then cut.

I would really be interested in what you think of this card.  Be gentle.

Ride with Me Birthday Card

I love the Ride with Me truck on page 55 of the Stampin' Up! catalog.  The bundle, Ride with Me stamp set and the Truck Ride Dies, has a great 3D truck.  Today I'm using the flat stamp for a  card.

Ride with Me Card by Jo Anne Hewins

The base is Balmy Blue 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  The next layer is Basic Black measuring 3 7/8 x 5 1/8.  The next layer is the map sheet from the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper.  It's cut at 3 3/4 x 5.  Add a strip of the blue stripe paper from Come Sail Away that measures 3/4 x 3 3/4.

I set the truck stamp up on the Stamparatus.  I wanted to make sure I got a good strong image.  Stamp in Memento Black ink.  The dies do not cut out the flat truck so you'll have to fussy cut.  Once done use a Sponge Dauber and the Balmy Blue ink to add a little dimension at the bottom of the truck.

The tires are from Basic Black.  The dies have two wheels so you can cut them both at the same time.

I used Gray Granite cardstock for the center of the tires.  I used a retired circle punch for that that measures 3/8".  Stamp the window again on Gray Granite and cut out.  Add to the truck.

Stamp two groups of balloons in Memento Black.  Color using the Light and Dark Balmy Blue, Light and Dark Old Olive, Light and Dark Daffodil Delight, and  Light and Dark Real Red Blends.  Use the Truck Ride Dies to cut out the balloons.

The truck is added directly to the card.  The balloons are taped inside the truck and then dimensionals are used behind the balloons.

Add some of the Silver Metallic Pearls here and there.

The saying is stamped on a 1/2" strip of scrap in Balmy Blue.  It's from the Ride with Me stamp set.

Ride with Me Birthday Card Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

Add another group of balloons to the inside of the card.  The saying is from the Perennial Birthday stamp set.

Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge # 574 Butterfly Wishes

Welcome to the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #574.  This week we have a sketch.

CCMC574

I am using the Butterfly Wishes stamp set for my card.

CCMC#574 Butterfly Wishes Card by Jo Anne Hewins

I've used the sentiments on this set, but I'm just getting into the images.  This set is part of the DistInktive collection.  That means that the detail is fantastic!

My card base is Thick Whisper White that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored and folded at 4 1/4.  The next layer is Pool Party.  It is cut at 4 1/8 x 5 3/8.  I wanted a very thin line of the white showing.  I stamped one of the butterflies over the front of the card randomly.  I did stamp off for this.  I just wanted a hint of the butterflies.

I just can't seem to get enough of all of the 6 x 6 designer series papers that Stampin' Up! has this year.  I have a 1 x 4 1/2 piece of the checked Pool Party from the Subtles DSP.  I also added a 1/2 x 4 3/4 strip of Rococo Rose from the 2019-2021 In Color DSP stack.

Set the branch from Butterfly Wishes up on the Stamparatus.  I colored directly on the stamp using Rococo Rose, Pear Pizzazz, and Soft Suede Stampin' Write Markers on Whisper White.  It's hard to tell exactly where to color, but I found that it is going to look great anyway.  I used the Stampartus because I find I like to stamp more than one time when using this technique.  Cut this out using the Stitched Nested Labels.  Put the stamped image a little closer to the top so you have room for the sentiment.

For the butterfly, I inked up the body using my Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker.  I then stamped that right on the label.  Now stamp the butterfly in Pool Party on a white scrap.  I did wipe off the body of the butterfly and used my black marker again.  Fussy cut the butterfly and attach to the label so that it matches the antennae.  

Add the label with dimensionals.  Put them on the butterfly too where it overlaps.

CCMC #574 Butterfly Wishes Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

Stamp the saying in Rococo Rose on a 1/2 inch strip of white.  Trim and add to the bottom of the label.

Add a few of the Glitter Enamel Dots.  They are really Coastal Cabana, but I think they look great!

CCMC#574 Butterfly Wishes by Jo Anne Hewins

For the inside of the card, I repeated the images from the front.  I did not add a sentiment.

#simplestamping with Abstract Impressions

Today I have a super simple card that you can complete in just minutes!

Abstract Impressions Whisk & Barrel July Card by Jo Anne Hewins

I'm using the Abstract Impressions stamp set.  This set makes a simple card so easy.  There is triple stamping, but honestly I didn't even try to match stuff up.

The card base is Thick Whipser White.  It's cut at 4 1/4 x 11.  Score at 5 1/2 and fold.  Use the Bone Folder to burnish the fold. 

Start with the largest, most solid flower stamp.  Stamp this flower in Seaside Spray ink.  I stamped 6 of these.  Now stamp with the medium flower stamp.  in stamped off Night of Navy.  Just stamp in the center of the first stamp.  Not use the thinnest lines flower stamp.  Stamp in Night of Navy full force.  Again, I didn't even try to line these up in any way.

Use Old Olive ink for the leaves.  Just stamp them where you think they will look good.

Stamp the saying in Night of Navy down in the lower right corner.

Abstract Impressions whisk & Barrel Closr Up by Jo Anne Hewins

The only thing left is the ribbon.  I used the new Denim Ribbon.  Just wrap the ribbon around the card just above the saying.  Tie the ribbon in a knot and trim the ends.

For the inside of the card, stamp another flower in the lower right.  The saying is from Abstract Impressions.

This is a 10 minute card.  It's so pretty and so easy!

Stamping Around the World August Blog Hop - Woven Heirlooms Frames

Welcome to the Stamping Around the World August Blog Hop.  Each month our group has a new tutorial for you.  We also have a blog hop that features the same products we used for our part of the tutorial.  That gives you lots more ideas!  More on the tutorials in a few moments.

Image may contain: text

For my part of the tutorial, I used the Heirlooms Embossing Folders and Dies.  I am loving these so much.  Here is my card for today.

Heirloom  Dies and Embossing Folder Card by Jo Anne Hewins

I used a lot of product on this card, but it really is not hard to make.  I have a video at the end just in case you need it.

The card base is Mossy Meadow 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  The next layer is Whisper White.  It measures 4 x 5 1/4.  I used the Very Versailles stamp set to cover this layer.  I stamped and then stamped again without reinking.  Continue until the front is filled.  Fill in as needed.  Remember that the oval will cover a good deal of the front.  It's OK to have the end of the stem show in there.

Cut the oval from the Heirlooms dies from Mossy Meadow.  Then run this through again with the embossing folder.  I have a great little hint in the video to help keep the oval right in the middle of the embossing folder.  Add to the card.

For the center of the oval, stamp the words from Very Versailles.  Stamp off the Mossy Meadow first.  I set the words from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set up on the Stamparatus.  I wanted to be able to stamp again and get the words dark so they would show up.  I used Merry Merlot.  Cut this out with the same oval used for the frame.  Add this center with dimensionals.

Heirloom Dies and Embossing Folder Close Up of Oval by Jo Anne Hewins

For the flower, stamp the flower that coordinates with the punch three times on Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Punch with the Perennial Flower Punch.  Curl the petals with your bone folder.  Add these 3 layers together with glue dots with each layer a little askew.  The center is punch from Merry Merlot with the 1/2" circle punch.

For a recent class, I used the Pressed Petals music paper.  Unfortunately, I cut my paper the wrong size and had to redo it.  So, I decided to use the other paper for my leaves on this card.  I can't waste it, can I?  Punch out two leaves with the Leaf Punch.

Now cut 3 of the sprigs from the Frosted Bouquet Dies from Merry Merlot.

Add the sprigs and leaves first with glue dots.  Now put the flower down right in the middle.  I used glue dots for that also.

Heirloom Dies and Embossing Folder Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

Here is the inside of the card.  This was so easy.  The saying is from Butterfly Wishes.  I used the Stamparatus again for the saying.  Just stamp the leaves and stamp again without reinking!
