CCMC670

For this card, I'm using the Meadow dies and the Pattern Party Host Designer Series Paper.

CCMC #670 Pattern Party Sketch Card by Jo Anne Hewins

Start with a base of Thick Basic White that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, score and fold at 4 1/4.

The designer paper used for the larger pieces is from the Pattern Party Host Designer Series Paper.  The Night of Navy layer is cut to 3 x 5 1/4.  The Crushed Curry layer measures 3 x 4 1/4.  Did you know that the Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder will fit perfectly on this paper?  Match carefully and run through your Cut & Emboss Machine.  Since this is a thinner folder you will need the base plate and the 2 clear plates.

The smaller pieces of designer paper come from the Sweet Symmetry Designer Series Paper.  The Night of Navy is 1/2 x 3 7/8.  The Crushed Curry print if 1/2 x 3 3/8.  Stamp on this strip with a saying from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set.  Stamp in Night of Navy.

Tie a knot of Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon and attach with a glue dot.

CCMC #670 Pattern Party Sketch Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

From Night of Navy card stock cut 2 stems using the Meadow dies.  First, I suggest that you use some of the Adhesive Sheets on one side of the card stock.  You can turn your cut outs into stickers.  It's easy to add to the card.

CCMC#670 Pattern Party Sketch Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

For the inside of the card, I had a little of the embossed designer paper left over.  Add to the bottom of the card.  Mine measured 1 x 4 1/4.  Add a piece of a stem and a little butterfly.

Use the Tailored Tag Punch for Your Background and Beauty of Friendship

Stampin' Up! will have FREE SHIPPING on June 24th.  Details at the end of this post!

The challenge was to use a punch on a card.  I wanted to do something a little unexpected.  So out came the Tailored Tag Punch and the Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper.    A background was punched.  Here's my card.

Beauty of Friendship Tailored Tag Punch Card by Jo Anne Hewins

The base of the card is Thick Basic White cut to 4 1/4 x 11, score and fold at 5 1/2.

From the beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper, use the mostly Misty Moonlight and the mostly Mossy Meadow sheets.  Punch with the Tailored Tag Punch.  Use a piece of paper that is a little wider then the card stock, maybe 4 1/2 inches.  Start in the top middle of the designer paper.  Then punch the side pieces.  Work your way down the designer paper fitting the punch in the available spaces.  There is really very little waste.  Do the same for each color.  Glue these pieces to the card front.  When finished, turn the paper over and trim any extra.

The tree is also cut out using the Beauty of the Earth designer paper that looks like wood.  I used a blob of glue and a sponge piece to add glue to the back of the tree.

The tree leaves are cutting using DSP and the Beautiful Trees dies.  Use Mini Dimensionals to add this to the card front.

Beauty of Friendship Tailored Tag Punch by Jo Anne Hewins

The Beauty of Friendship bundle consists of the stamp set and the Beautiful Trees dies.

The saying that I used on the front is from the Pansy Patch stamp set.  Stamp in Mossy Meadow on a 1/2 inch piece of Basic White.  Trim the sides of the label and add with dimensionals.  

Cut two birds from Cherry Cobbler card stock and add on dimensionals so that they appear to be sitting on the label.

Tie a bow with Linen Thread and add with a rolled up glue dot.

Beauty of Friendship Tailored Tag Punch Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

For the inside add more of the Mossy Meadow patterned paper punched.  This is where I made a mistake and decided to let it be so I could show it to you.  Learn from my mistakes!  I should have stamped my tree before adding the punched piece.  It would look better.  The tree is stamped in Early Espresso.  The foliage is stamped in Mossy Meadow.  The saying is from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set.

Ombre Gift Bag by Jo Anne Hewins

I shared this gift card holder with the stampers in the NC Demo Facebook Group on Saturday.  I'll share that video on this post as well.  For this holder, you'll fold the bag in half just to the zigzag.  Trim making sure you also cut the bottom of the bag.  Trim as little as you can to keep the bag as large as it can be.  This will make 2 openings for our project.

I'm going to list items used.  The video should make everything clear.

1 piece of Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper 1 x 5.  Score at 1/2.  This is for spine of holder.

Here are the projects we made this week.

Ombre Gift Bag Duo by Jo Anne Hewins

I'm using the Pale Papaya bags for these cards, but let me tell you about the Ombre Gift Bags.  You get 20 bags for $6.  The come in all of the new In Colors Pale Papaya, Fresh Freesia, Evening Evergreen, Polished Pink, and Soft Succulent.  They are great for packaging or adding a little extra to special cards.

Ombre Bags and Plenty of Patterns Masks by Jo Anne Hewins

For this bag I used the Plenty of Patterns Decorative Masks and a Blending Brush to add more Pale Papaya ink to the bag.  The ribbon used is from the Flowers for Every Season Combo Pack.  To finish the bag use the Hand-Penned Memories and More Card Pack.  The sticker is also from the pack.

Ombre Bags and Hand-Penned Cards and Envelopes by Jo Anne Hewins

Inside the bag I used the Hand-Penned Memories and More Cards and Envelopes.  These are a real bargain.  You get 20 of these for $10.  Wow!  I turned the card inside out and used the white for the front.  I used the decorative masks again over the front.  The Pale Papaya layer is 4 1/4 x 6 1/4.  Now add another of the Memories and More cards and a sticker.  I love how the Cards and Envelopes fit right inside the bags.  It just makes everything a little more special.

Ombre Bags with Card Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

Here is the inside of the card.  Add a piece of Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper cut to 4 x 6.  Add more sticker from the card pack.

Ombre Gift Bag with Tailor Made Tags by Jo Anne Hewins

Here is the second bag we decorated.  Again I used the Plenty of Patterns masks.  The tags are cut from the Hand-Penned designer paper using the Tailor Made Tags dies.  These are a stand alone set of dies.  They are really going to be a staple for my card making.  I used the Pale Papaya In Color Ribbon as well.  For the saying, it's stamped in Misty Moonlight.  The stamp is from the Shaded Summer stamp set and is cut out using the Tasteful Labels dies.  Tags and the saying are added with dimensionals.

Ombre Bags Inside Card by Jo Anne Hewins

This is the card inside the card.  The base is Soft Succulent measuring 4 1/2 x 11 and scored at 5 1/2.  Use the decorative masks with Soft Succulent ink and a Blending Brush.  The label is cut from Basic White using the Scalloped Contours dies.  The saying is from the Welcoming Window stamp set.  The flower, from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set, is stamped and colored using the Pale Papaya, Soft Succulent, and Daffodil Delight Blends Combo packs.  Cut with the Penned Flowers dies.

I think this gives you any information you might need.  Here's the video!

Garden Birdhouses So Cute!

Hello to you!  I have a card for you today using the Garden Birdhouses stamp set.  This is such a cute set.  You can find it on page 107.  This card is part of the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #669 using Cinnamon Cider, Pale Papaya, and Mint Macaron.

CCMC669

These are pretty colors, but I wouldn't have put them together.  Turns out that it definitely works.  Here is my card.

CCMC#669 Garden Wishes by Jo Anne Hewins

My card base is Mint Macaron measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.

The Cinnamon Cider layer is 3 7/8 x 5 1/8.

The designer paper is from the Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper.  It's cut to 3 3/4 x 5.

Stamp the branches directly on the designer paper in Cinnamon Cider ink.  One branch comes in from the left of the card, one in from the upper left corner, and the other in from the top.  Color in the leaves in Dark Mint Macaron.  Since these inks aren't really made for each other, I tried not to color over the Cinnamon Cider with the green.

To stamp the cord for the birdhouse, stamp once from the branch, but mask off the round part on the bottom.  Now stamp again with the whole stamp.  This allows the birdhouse to hang a little lower.

At first I stamped the saying directly onto the designer paper.  Then I thought the card probably needed a little bit more.  I cut out the sentiment with the circle from the Tasteful Labels dies.  Cut a circle from Cinnamon Cider with the Layering Circles dies.  Add the circle over the hole and add the sentiment with dimensionals.  Stamp a bird in Memento Black and color with the Pale Papaya Combo Blends.  Fussy cut and add the bird just over the words.

Stamp the birdhouse on a scrap of Basic White in Memento Black.  Color in the house with Pale Papaya blends and Cinnamon Cider Combo Blends.  Fussy cut and add to the card with dimensionals.  Add another bird stamped, colored, and cut out so that it faces the first bird.

CCMC#669 Garden Wishes Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

For the inside, stamp the post in Cinnamon Cider and color in with blends.  I stamped the house and bird on scrap paper, colored, and cut out.  Add to the post.  The flowers are stamped in Memento Black and colored with Mini Macaron Combo Blends and the Pale Papaya blends.  The saying is from Garden Birdhouses.  It's stamped in Cinnamon Cider.
