Beautiful Friendship

One of my favorite stamp sets from the Annual catalog is Beautiful Friendship.  I don't think you can mess up using this set.

Beautiful Friendship September Class by Jo Anne Hewins

The colors used in this card are Night of Navy, Rococo Rose, Merry Merlot, and Mossy Meadow.  These colors are fantastic together.

The base of this card is Night of Navy 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.

The next layer is Whisper White.  I wanted just a little of the navy to show so this layer is 4 1/8 x 5 3/8.  I hadn't done that before but I like it.

I started in the lower right of the card to stamp.  Then I would stamp the same in the opposite (left) corner at the top.  Night of Navy was stamped first, then Rococo Rose, then Merry Merlot, and last Mossy Meadow.  I did the same on the inside of the card.  I'm going to go ahead and show that now.  The saying from the inside is from the Very Versailles stamp set.

Now here is a close up of the center of the front of the card.

Beautiful Friendship September Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

There is a layer of Whisper White and a layer of Vellum cardstock that are cut the same.  Use the Layering Squares Dies.  A frame of Night of Navy is cut using the same dies.  Stamp the hydrangea in navy.  On the vellum, first use the Embossing Buddy.  Stamp the saying in Versamark and then heat emboss with Gold Emboss Powder.  The saying is from the Meant to Be stamp set.  Be sure to stamp this toward the top so that you have room to die the ribbon.  Hint:  Add glue dots behind the o's.  The ribbon is the Denim Ribbon.

I love this card!

Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #579 Snowman Season

Welcome to the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #579.  Today we are using Rococo Rose, Grapefruit Grove, and So Saffron.

CCMC579

These colors proved to be a challenge for me.  My card is a little out of my box.  I admit it.  I added Basic Gray.  I hope I can get by with it this time.

CCMC #579 Snowman Season by Jo Anne Hewins

I decided to use the Basic Pattern Decorative Masks from the Holiday catalog page 35.  

The base of the card is Basic Gray measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.

There is a layer is Rococo Rose cut to 3 7/8 x 5 1/8.

The next layer is Whisper White that is 3 3/4 x 5.  Set this layer up with the dot mask.  Use sponges to color this in.  I took one of the Stampin' Sponges and cut it into 6 pieces.  Use a sponge piece for each color.  Use the Rococo Rose, transition into the So Saffron, and then transition into the Grapefruit Grove.  It may look a little difficult, but it's really quite easy.

Stamp the snowman from Snowman Season on Whisper White.  Stamp in Basic Gray.  Color the hat and scarf with Rococo Rose and So Saffron Stampin' Write markers.  Color the nose with the Grapefruit Grove Stampin' Write marker.

Use the Layering Circles to cut out the snowman.  Add some of the new Snowfall Accents Puff Paint to the ground and the tiny tree.  Heat with the Heat Tool to make it puff.

Frame with a scallop circle of Basic Gray cut using the Layering Circles Dies.  Add this focal point with dimensionals.

The saying is from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set.  Stamp in Basic Gray.  Punch with the Classic Label Punch.  Use a dimensional on the left side and snail on the right.

I got a little carried away with the inside of the card.  I just couldn't stop adding dots!  The saying is from the Snowman Season stamp set.

This card is a little different for me, but I must say there is something about it that I like.  Wouldn't you like it if colors were falling from the sky?

Beauty & Joy A Christmas Card

The Beauty & Joy stamp set is one you might overlook.  It's toward the back on page 51 of the Holiday catalog.  It covers every season and that makes it a great stamp set.  I featured it last week here with a fall card.  Today I have a Christmas card.

Beauty & Joy Christmas by Jo Anne Hewins

The base of this card is Real Red measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.

There is a Whisper White layer that is 3 3/4 x 5.  

The next layer is 3 5/8 x 4 7/8.   It's from the Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper.

Down the center of the card is a layer of Real Red paper from the Regals Designer Series Paper.  It measures 1 1/2 x 4 7/8.

The stamping is done on Whisper White.  I started stamping from the bottom.  The pot is stamped in Crumb Cake.  The stem is in Early Espresso.  The leaves are in Mossy Meadow.  It's easy to place the parts of the tree since these are photopolymer stamps.

Cut the tree out using the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  Add the oval with dimensionals to the center of the card.

Add Red Rhinestones to the tree.  I added 9.  A star from the Star Design Elements tops the tree.  The finish the design add a knot made using the Copper Trim.  Roll up a glue dot to add this.

The saying is from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set.  Stamp in Real Red and punch out with the Classic Label Punch.  Add with dimensionals.

Here is the inside of the card.  The saying is from Beauty & Joy.  Stamp the tree again.  The berries are stamped in Real Red.

Variations on a Box Inspired by Tina Zinck

As we comb over Pinterest and other sources of stamping inspiration, we can find so many things we want to make.  A while back I came across a picture by Tina Zinck.  She was new to me, but that box!  It was beautiful!  Here is her picture.

I haven't asked Tina for permission to post her stuff.  I hope it's OK.  I just want to make sure that you know this is her creation!  Her post is from June 14, 2019 and can be found at http://www.serenestamper.com/2019/06/magnolia-lane-atc-book-box-video.html.  That's not all.  She has a great video on making the box, found at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fwbBbWczd-I&t=90s.  The link is also on her post.

I decided that we would make the box as part of our Luv 2 Create team meeting.  While the box is not as hard to make as it first appears, I was asking a lot.  I sent the links above to them ahead of  time and asked that they have the box cut and scored and the designer series paper of their choice cut.  I also asked that they cut the pieces for the flowers if they had the dies.  I did have a time a day before the meeting that they could come for help with this if needed.  I also told them I could cut for them if they asked ahead of time.  I sent them pictures of my box.  I must say, the team arose to the challenge.  Some came with boxes already made.  Some did not finish their box completely, but just had to decorate.  Everyone helped each other!  After all, that's what stampers do.  I think we all had fun!

Book Box 1

This is my box.  I used the Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper.  The flowers are made using the video by Stampin' Up!  Go to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XEvRR4TwLpo&t=108s.  I sponged some of the Delicata Golden Glitz ink around the petals.

Book Box Topper

The JOY on the front flap is from the So Many Stars stamp set in the Holiday catalog.

Book Box 3

Here are a few pictures of the boxes made by some of my team.

These were made by Kaye Owenby.

This one was made by Patti Tacy.

I'm so happy that the team rose to the occasion.  We even got Teresa to spritz and scrunch, and I think she'll even do it again!!!  I'll get more pictures as they finish.  This is what I had for today.

I also want to share that Teresa said she was going to use her boxes as Prayer Boxes.  She is going to give them as gifts for people to write down their prayers and put them in the box.  This will encourage them to pray and give them suggestions in times when prayer is hard.  I think the same could be done with a Gratitude Box!

Thank you Tina Zinck for your inspiration!

I am grateful that you visited my blog today.  I hope that you are inspired, too.  If you need supplies to make your box, I would be happy to help you.

Beauty & Joy For Fall

Hello to you today!  Are there signs of fall where you live?  Here in North Carolina, it's still feels like summer, but fall will come.  This makes me think of my son Jeff.  Way back when he was in kindergarten, as we were driving home he told me he had to look for signs that say fall on them.  He had that just a little mixed up!

My card for today uses the stamp set Beauty & Joy found on page 51 of the Holiday catalog.  It's one that you just could miss.  It's kind of stuck in a corner.

Beauty & Joy Fall Card by Jo Anne Hewins

I took the sample on page 51 as inspiration for my card.  The base is Grapefruit Grove measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  Stamp the leaves from Beauty & Joy in Versamark around the edges of the base.

My next layer is Crumb Cake cut to 3 3/4 x 5.  Stamp over this whole layer with the leaves in Versamark.

On a piece of Whisper White, stamp the tree.  I started from the bottom.  The pot is stamped in Crumb Cake.  The stem is in Early Espresso.  For the leaves, stamp first in Grapefruit Grove.  With a sponge dauber, add some Early Espresso ink directly to the stamp itself and stamp.  Cut out the plant with the Stitched Shapes Dies.  Add with dimensionals.

Beauty & Joy Fall Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

I used the twine from the Nature's Twine in the annual catalog.  I separated the twine into 3 parts.  I just feel like the twine lies flatter this way.  Run a length of the twine down the center of the Crumb Cake layer.  I just tape it with regular tape on the back.  Tie a double bow and attached it with a glue dot at the top of the oval.

Stamp the saying from Beauty & Joy in Early Espresso.  Punch with the Classic Label Punch.

Glue the Crumb Cake layer to the base of the card.

Beauty & Joy Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

Here is the inside of the card.  The saying is from the To a Wild Rose stamp set and is stamped in Early Espresso.  I inked up the leaves in the same way as on the front.  I did stamp them off first so the words would show.  Hint:  Clean the stamp each time before you stamp again.  You do not want to contaminate your Grapefruit Grove pad.
