Snowman Season Melting Snow Friends

I love the Snowman Season stamp set.  I love snowmen and snowflakes!  My mom and I developed a little thing between us after I moved out.  We would call each other every time there was a snow.  I was just a few miles away, but we liked to be the first one to call.  I am from North Carolina and our snows are not that frequent.  We get a couple a year.  Now mom is no longer with us, but my daughter Jessie and I have carried on the tradition.  She's about an hour and a half away.  We call when we see the first snowflake!  I just love that!

My snowmen today are melting!

Snowman Season Melting Card by Jo Anne Hewins

Start with a base of Thick Whisper White that is 4 1/4 x 11.  Score this at 5 1/2 and fold.

The next layer is Whisper White measuring 4 x 5 1/4.  On the top 2/3's of the paper, stamp snowflakes from the Snowman Season stamp set.  I used Pool Party ink.  Some are stamped off and some are not.  Run this through your die cutting machine with the Brick & Mortar Embossing Folder.

Punch out 2 one inch circles with the 1" Circle Punch.  Add the face of the snowmen using the Let It Snow Embellishment Kit.  I trimmed the bottom of the face of one of them to look a little melted.  Add these near the bottom of the card.  I put a glue dot down near the bottom and a dimensional near the top of the circles.  Add the arms and buttons around the snowmen in a random pattern.  Lay down the scarf and mittens where you want them.  Add the Snowfall Accents Puff Paint liquid all around the arms, buttons, and felt items.  Remove the felt and then heat the liquid with the Heat Tool.  It will puff with heat.  I did find out the the Heat Tool will also melt felt.  I had to replace mine!  So add the felt after you have puffed the paint!  Add the hats with a glue dot at the top of the head and a dimensional.

Tie some of the Shaded Spruce/Gold Striped Ribbon around the card and tie in a knot.

The saying from the stamp set Happy Tails.  Stamp it twice, once in Real Red and again in Shaded Spruce.  Cut around the words and add them with dimensionals.

The saying on the inside is from Playful Penguins.  It's stamped in Real Red.  Add some Pool Party snowflakes.

Birds of a Feather Christmas Card

Hello to you today!  I have a cute Christmas card using the Birds of a Feather.  Don't you love this stamp set.  It has something for four great holidays:  Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Valentine's Day!

Birds of a Feather Christmas by Jo Anne Hewins

This card is part of my Christmas Card Class.  Start with a card base of Pool Party that is cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  Stamp over the front of the card with the stars stamp from Birds of a Feather.  Stamp in Pool Party.

The Cherry Cobbler dotted paper is from the Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper.  It measures 1 1/2 x 5 1/2.  The Whisper White strip behind it measures 2 x 5 1/2.  Use the Stitched Be Mine Dies to cut the scalloped edges on the white.  Layer the two pieces and adhere to the left of center on the card front.

Birds of a Feather Christmas Close UP by Jo Anne Hewins

Stamp the bird on Whisper White using Memento ink.  Blends were used to color the bird.  I used Light and Dark Pool Party, Light Cherry Cobbler, and Light Pumpkin Pie.  A few people in class wanted to give the bird a cobbler beak.  I see nothing wrong with that!  Punch this out with the 2" Circle Punch.  Cut a coordinating scallop circle from Pool Party using the Layering Circles Dies.  Layer the two and add to the card with dimensionals.   Add a star from the Star Designer Elements.

The saying is from the Birds of a Feather stamp set.  I only wanted the top two lines of the saying.  I used scotch tape to tape off the bottom line.  Ink the stamp, and then, take off the tape.  That last step is super important!!!  The white strip is 3/4 inches wide.  Notch the ends.  Add with dimensionals.  Use glue where the label overlaps the circles.

Birds of a Feather Christmas Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

Here is the inside of the card.  The saying is in Cherry Cobbler.  Stamp the bird again and color.  Use the Dark Daffodil Delight Blend for the star.

This is a fun card to make and it comes together pretty easily.  I do love to color!

Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #587 Come to Gather

Welcome to this Thursday's Create with Connie and Mary Challenge #587.  This week we are using Cajun Craze, Pretty Peacock, and Crumb Cake.

CCMC587

I chose to use the Come To Gather Designer Series Paper for my card and the Gathered Leaves Dies.  

CCMC#587 Gather Together by Jo Anne Hewins

Begin with a card base of Thick Very Vanilla that is 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 5 1/2 and folded.

Cut the Come to Gather feather paper to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  Glue to the card front.  

The Crumb Cake paper across the card is from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper.  Cut to 1 1/2 x 4 1/4.  Glue to the card front.

The wooden pieces come from the Tags & Feathers Elements.  I pressed them on the surface of the Cajun Craze pad.  It took a couple times to get it as dark as I wanted.  This does not adhere as well where the feathers are white.  I wanted to leave the ink on there anyway.  This process can be messy as that ink does not dry immediately.  You just might want to leave them alone for a while or use your Heat Tool.  This is experience talking here!  Place the feathers on the card with glue dots.  And yes, I had to wash my hands!

For the leaves, use the Gathered Leaves dies.  I used all three sizes of the leaves so that I could cut all at once.  Use all three of the colors, too, Crumb Cake, Pretty Peacock, and Cajun Craze.  With the embossing left by the dies, it's easy to curl up the leaves a little.  I added these with a couple of glue dots down the center.

CCMC #587 Gather Together Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

The saying is from The Painted Harvest stamp set found in the Annual Catalog.  Stamp in Pretty Peacock on Crumb Cake.  The Crumb Cake paper is 1/2" x 3 3/4.  Notch the ends.  Add with dimensionals.  This label hides all of the ends of the feathers and leaves!

Finish off with a box made using the Cajun Craze twine from the Come to Gather Ribbon Combo Pack.

CCMC #587 Gather Together Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

This is the inside of the card.  The saying is from Painted Harvest.  I had a smudge under the saying.  That's why I added the leaf.  The stem hides my smudge!  What do they say?  It's a reason to embellish!

Wrapped in Plaid Meets the Pine Tree Punch

The Wrapped in Plaid 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper is so pretty.  It's perfect for any time, but for Christmas it just shines.  Literally.  It has a gold metallic line running through it!  Here's my card for today.

Wrapped in Plaid Pine Tree Card by Jo Anne Hewins

Start with a piece of Shaded Spruce card stock that measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  Stamp the tree from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set in Shaded Spruce.  I did stamp off first.  This adds a little interest to the card.  It might not be noticed at first, but it does add so much!

The plaid paper is cut to 2 x 5 1/2.  I use my grid paper to help center this paper to my card front.  Using the Multipurpose Liquid Glue gives you a small moment to move the paper to just the right place.  Cut 2 pieces of Gold Foil at 1/4 x 5 1/2.  Glue this down on each side of the plaid.  Be sure to butt this up right next to the plaid.  It makes it look like you have used a larger piece of gold, but you have saved!

Wrapped in Plaid Pine Tree Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

Cut a circle using the Stitched Shapes dies largest circle.  I used Thick Whisper White for this.  Center the Pine Tree Punch and punch out the tree.  By the way the Perfectly Plaid stamp set and the Pine Tree Punch can be purchased as a bundle to save 10%!  Add the circle to the card with dimensionals.

The tiny stars are punched with the Twinkle Builder Punch from gold foil.  this is a great way to use scraps and not waste anything!  The star at the top of the tree is just a little larger.  Use glue to add the stars.

Stamp the saying in Shaded Spruce on Whisper White.  This saying is from the Christmas Gleaming stamp set.  Fussy cut around it and add under the circle with dimensionals.

Wrapped in Plaid Pine Tree Inside of Card by Jo Anne Hewins

Here is the inside of the card.  The saying is stamped in Night of Navy and is from the Perfectly Plaid set.  Stamp the tree in Shaded Spruce and the trunk in Early Espresso.  Don't forget to add a star at the top of the tree!

I hope you will try this card.  It's so much fun to make.  It's also pretty quick.  Well, those stars do take some time!

Thanks for joining me today for a little while.  If I can help you with your stamping, please let me know.  I would love to have your business.

Stamping Around the World Blog Hop for November, 2019

Welcome to the Stamping Around the World Blog Hop for November.  Our group publishes a new tutorial for each month.  We also have a blog hop.  The hop features cards using the same products used in the tutorials.  I used the Stitched Stars Dies for November.  These tutorials are yours for free with any purchase!  They have 12 different projects.

No photo description available.

I used the So Many Stars Bundle that features the stamp set and the Stitched Stars Dies.

So Many Stars and Stitched Stars Dies by Jo Anne Hewins

Start with a card base of Night of Navy that measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and fold at 4 1/4.

The layer of Seaside Spray is 4 1/8 x 5 3/8.  Run this through the die cutting machine with the Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder.  Adhere to the base of the card.

Cut out a frame in Night of Navy using the Heirloom Frames dies from the Annual Catalog.  Add this to the card using dimensionals.

Stamp the saying from So Many Stars in Versamark on Whisper White card stock.  For this saying we are using silver, gold, and copper embossing powders.  Cover part of the saying in silver, then add gold on part, and then finish up with gold on the remainder of the saying.  Use the Heat Tool to melt the powder.  Cut out this saying using the center of the oval from the Heirloom Frames dies.  Glue to the center of the frame.

So Many Stars Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

Using the smaller stars from the Stitched Stars dies, cut out lots of stars from silver, gold, and copper foil sheets.  Use the stars from the scroll die also.

To add the stars, begin with the largest stars and place them around the frame.  Continue to work placing stars around the frame with the next largest and work on down to the smallest stars.  Just fill in where needed.  I used glue and glue dots.

Add a bow using the Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon using a glue dot.

So Many Stars by Jo Anne Hewins

The saying on the inside of the card is also from So Many Stars.  It is embossed in copper and gold.  Cut the swirl in silver foil using the Stitched Stars dies.  Cut this again in copper.  Use the copper stars to fill in.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today.  These stars are definitely not just for Christmas.  I know you'll use them all year long.
