Beautifully Penned Accordion Card

Today I have a beautiful card using the Beautifully Penned Designer Series Paper.  This paper is one of the free items you can earn during Sale-a-Bration.  Did you know that SAB ends on September 30th.  This paper pairs so nicely with the Hand-Penned Bundle in the annual catalog.  Here's my card.

Beautifully Penned with Hand-Penned Petals Holding Card  Accordian Fold by Jo Anne Hewins

My card is a fun fold called the accordion fold.  It uses a piece of designer paper that measures 5 1/2 x 12.  If you have a lot of paper you need to use, this card is perfect.  Score the card at 1 3/4, 4 3/4, and 7 3/4.

I cut the largest of the Layering Circles from Old Olive and the next largest from Basic White.  Stamp the image from the Hand-Penned stamp set in Memento Black.  I colored this in using the Cajun Craze Blends Combo, the Daffodil Delight Blends Combo, the Pale Papaya Blends Combo, and the Old Olive Blends Combo.  Glue the image circle to the Old Olive one.

I glued the smallest section down to the next section.  Add a 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch piece of Old Olive paper from the Regals 6 x 6 Designer Paper Series Paper Stack.  Glue butted up next to the DSP.  Wrap around some of the Metallic Mesh Ribbon and tape where the circle will cover it.  Add the circles with glue, but be very careful not to attach the far right of the circles.  You want the card to be able to open all the way.

The saying on the front is from Welcoming Woods.  Stamp in Cajun Craze and fussy cut.  Add to the card front with dimensionals.

Add a piece of Basic White for the inside of the card.  It measures 2 7/8 x 5 3/8.  Stamp another image from Hand-Penned in Memento Black and color these with the same colors as above.  The saying is from Welcoming Woods.

So use up some of that paper you have.  This is a cute and easy card.

NC Blog Hop for September Teepee Christmas Card

Welcome to the NC Blog Hop for September.  Our theme is trash to treasure.  Sorry, I couldn't get into that so I have a card that does need something Stampin' Up! does not sell.  I did get it at the Dollar Tree so maybe that will qualify.  The Dollar Tree is a great place to find treasures! 

Join us blog

I've been making some teepee cards.  See this post for a video on making these cards.  

Since I've linked you to a video, I'm going to give you pictures and supplies.  Here is my teepee Christmas card featuring the Be Jolly stamp set.

Teepee Card Side 3 Be Jolly  Heartwarming Hugs DSP  Jo Anne Hewins

Isn't this cute!!!  You'll need

3 pieces of Mossy Meadow measuring 4 x 4.  Use your Paper Trimmer to score each piece diagonally once.

2 pieces of Heartwarming Hugs measuring 3 7/8 x 3 7/8.  Cut both of these diagonally once.  You'll only use three of these pieces.

1 piece of Basic White measuring 3 7/8 x 3 7/8.  Cut once diagonally.

Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper

Be Jolly and Banner Year stamp sets (easy to substitute paper you have!)

Peaceful Deer for Merry Christmas sentiment.  This is a photopolymer stamp set.  I curved the stamp on my block.  It stays long enough to get your image!

Memento Black and Real Red pads

Blends Combo Packs:  Daffodil Delight, Real Red, Smoky Slate, Soft Suede, Ivory, Balmy Blue, Old Olive

Sequins for Everything

Here are pictures of the outside and the inside of the card.

So, I think you have what you would need to make this card.  What else did I need?  This type of card needs something to close the card when you have it standing.  Use either small magnets or velcro rounds.  I had no idea where to look for these in my craft room and no time.  I checked out Amazon and of course they are there.  I didn't want to wait even for next day delivery.  Yes, the Dollar Tree had both!  For the Christmas card, I used velcro.  If you do use the magnets, the ones I got did not have adhesive on them.  I used Tear & Tape to cover the side.

I appreciate your time today.  Please take the entire hop.  NC has very talented stampers!  You'll love the ideas that you get.  Amanda is up next!

Facebook Live 9.22.2021 Teepee Cards for Fall and Halloween

Today we are making teepee cards.  This is the first time that I've ever made them.  They look difficult to me but they aren't.  We'll start with the fall card.  These cards can be folded flat for mailing and will fit in a regular A2 envelope.

Teepee Card Side 2  Pattern Party DSP  Stitched Leaves dies  Love of Leaves  by Jo Anne Hewins

Of course the teepee card has 3 sides.  This is only one.  Let me tell you what you'll need.  More pictures to come.

3 pieces of Basic Black that each measure 4 x 4.  Use your Paper Trimmer to score diagonally on all three.

1 piece of Basic White that measures 3 7/8 x 3 7/8.  Use your trimmer to cut this into 2 pieces diagonally down the center.

2 pieces of designer paper that measure 3 7/8 x 3 7/8.  These will also be cut into 2 pieces diagonally.  Note:  You will only use 3 of these designer paper triangles.

For the fall card I used the Pattern Party Host Designer Series Paper.  For the Halloween card I used the Cute Halloween Designer Series Paper.    These supplies are needed for both of the cards.  You'll also need something to close the cards.  Velcro dots or a small magnets work fine.  I got mine at the dollar store.

I'm going to go ahead and put the video here.  Instead of writing out the directions, I'll let it show you what to do.

 

I hope that was helpful.  I'll share more pictures of the fall card.  Supplies used are the Love of Leaves stamp set, Stitched Leaves dies, Adhesive Sheets, Hydrangea dies, Matte Decorative Dots, and Linen Thread.

3D Free Project Thursday No Tombstone Tombstone Treat Box

Welcome to the 3D Free Project Thursday!

3D Thursday Free Project Thursday

There are 8 of us in our group and we each take turns providing you with a 3D project and downloadable PDF every Thursday.  This week it's my turn!  We have a treat box made from the Tombstone Treat Boxes found in the August-December Mini Catalog.  They aren't just for Halloween!

3D Thursday Tombstone Box Treat Holder by Jo Anne Hewins

To change the tombstone box into a box is to simply trim off the tombstone part and leave the lip around the box.  This is a great box.  It's very sturdy.  There is not a lot of difference between the top and bottom of the box.  The bottom is just a little smaller.  The adhesive is already there!

3D Thursday Tombstone Thank you Treat Box by Jo Anne Hewins

For this box I used the Stitched So Sweetly dies to cut out the rectangle from the Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper.  Add with dimensionals.

The large flower is cut from Merry Merlot card stock with the Sunflowers dies.  You'll need 2.  Crumple in your hands and then adhere the two around the solid part.  Add to the box with dimensionals.  Cut a center from Bumblebee.

The leaves are from the Summer Shadows dies, part of Sale-a-Bration, cut the solid leaves from the Peaceful Place Designer Series Paper and the solid from Basic Gray.  Add some of the Adhesive Sheets to the back of the card stock.  Add the leaves with dimensionals.

The saying is from the Nature's Harvest stamp set.  Stamp is Merlot and fussy cut.

Add a bow of Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon.

3D Thursday Tombstone Box with Apple Pies by Jo Anne Hewins

Inside is an mini apple pie.  Add the ribbon around the pie and secure in front.  The smaller flower inside is created using the Summer Shadows dies.

3D Thursday Tombstone Box Lid and Treat Inside of the Box by Jo Anne Hewins

It's made using a combination of the Harvest Meadow DSP and Merry Merlot card stock.  The center is from the Sunflowers dies.

There you have it.  To download the PDF for this box Download No Tombstone Tombstone Treat Box.

Beauty of the Earth DSP and Welcoming Woods

Welcome to the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #683.  This week we have a sketch.

CCMC683

I chose to use the Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper for my card and the Welcoming Woods stamp set.

CCMC #683 Welcoming Woods  Beauty of the Earth DSP  Glimmer Organdy Ribbon  Happy Holly-Days  Jo Anne Hewins

Begin with a card base of Thick Basic White 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored and folded at 4 1/4.

Cut the blue paper with the trees the same size as the card front, 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  Be careful of the directionality of the paper.  Cut a piece of the blue designer paper with the Seasonal Labels dies.  Stamp this piece with the Welcoming Woods dies.  I did set this up on the Stamparatus.  Stamp in Early Espresso.  Using a Blending Brush add some Night of Navy ink to the edges of this layer.  Use an Embossing Buddy over this layer.  Stamp the snowflakes in Versamark.  Emboss in white from the Basics Embossing Powders.  Add this layer near the bottom left with dimensionals.

Add a piece of Tear & Tape and add some of the Glitter Organdy Ribbon making little ridges with the ribbon.

The saying is from the Happy Holly-Days stamp set.  Stamp in navy on Basic White.  Notch the ends.  Glue to the panel.

CCMC #683 Welcoming Woods  Close Up  Beauty of the Earth DSP  Seasonal Labels dies  Wonderful Snowflakes by Jo Anne Hewins

Color some of the Wonderful Snowflakes (2) with Night of Navy ink.  I used a sponge dauber.  Sponge glue onto the back of the snowflake and glue to the card.  Trim even with the card base.

CCMC #683 Welcoming Woods  Happy Holly-Days  Jo Anne Hewins  Inside of Card

Here is the inside of the card.  The saying is from Happy Holly-Days.
