Blackberry Beauty Designer Series Paper Fun Fold Wedding Card

Weddings are a great thing.  Today I have a card for a wedding using the Blackberry Beauty Designer Series Paper.  This is a fun fold card, but it is super easy.  Here's a picture.

Blackberry Beauty Wedding Pic of Card  Encircled in Beauty dies  Gold Foil  Forever Blossoms  Gold Embossing  Metallics Emboss Powders  Layering Circles dies  Stitched Greenery die  Simply Elegant Trim  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

This card has several folds that allows it to stand up.  Here is the view from above.

BL1919~1

The card base is Blackberry Bliss.  I love this color with gold!  It measures the same as a regular card base.  However, for this one score at 2, 3 1/8, 5 3/8, and 6 1/2.

The Blackberry Beauty DSP measures 1 7/8 x 5 3/8.  You will need two of these, one for each side.  

For the middle section, use Gold Foil.  It measures 2 1/8 x 5 3/8.  Run this through the Cut & Emboss Machine with the Stitched Greenery die.  This goes so well with designer paper on the sides!  Glue.

BLACKB~3

Cut a medallion with the Encircled in Beauty dies from Blackberry Bliss.  The saying for the front of the card is from the Forever Blossoms stamp set from the Annual Catalog.  Use an Embossing Buddy or used dryer sheet to rub over the white card stock.  Stamp on with Versamark.  Use gold emboss powder from the Metallics Stampin' Emboss Powders.  Cut this out with the Layering Circles dies.  One of them will fit just inside the medallion.  

Add a bow with a glue dot made using the Simply Elegant Trim in gold.

BL2503~1

Here is the flip side of the card.  The Basic White paper is the same measurement as the gold on front, 2 1/8 x 5 3/8.  Emboss the saying from Forever Blossoms.  

BL6B54~1

Since this is for a wedding, the envelope needs to be decorated as well.  Glue designer paper to the fold of the envelope and then cut away the extra.  

This card is so easy to make, but has a little extra pizzazz.  Think of all of the occasions that you could use it.  If you make one I would love to see it.

One Stamp at a Time Ghoul's Night Out!

Welcome to the One Stamp at a Time blog hop for October.  Our theme is Ghoul's Night Out!  This is such a fun hop.  I can't wait to see the card and 3D projects of our hoppers.

May be an image of flower and text that says 'OSAT ONE STAMP AT A TIME BLOG HOP'

For my card I made a book fold card using the Pattern Party Host Designer Series Paper.  It also features the Cutest Halloween bundle and the Cute Halloween Designer Series Paper.

OSAT for October Cutest Halloween  Cutest Halloween Bundle  Book Fold  Beautiful Trees dies  Halloween Punch  Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon  Pattern Party DSP  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

Start with a card base of Basic Black cut to 4 1/4 x 11.  Score at 5 1/2 and 6 3/4. 

Glue down the small section.  This serves as the spine and thus the name book fold.  Add a piece of the black and white check from Pattern Party.  It measures 1 1/8 x 5 3/8.  Tie the Black Glitter Organdy Ribbon around this section and into a bow in the center of the front.  I find that adding a glue dot under the first tie helps keep the ribbon in place so that I can tie the rest.

For the front of the card add the bumblebee paper.  It's actually on the back of the black and white check.  This piece is cut to 4 1/8 x 4 1/8.  

The tree is cut using the Beautiful Trees dies.  Before cutting add some of the Adhesive Sheets to the back of your black card stock.  OSAT for October Cutest Halloween  Cutest halloween Bundle  Book Fold  Beautiful Trees dies  Halloween Punch  Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon  Pattern Party DSP  Close up  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create
This turns the tree into a sticker and it adheres easily to the card front.

The ghost is punched from the Cute Halloween Designer Series Paper with the Halloween punch.  The Cutest Halloween stamp set and the Halloween punch can be purchased as a bundle.  Add the ghost with dimensionals.

The saying is from the Cutest Halloween stamp set.  Stamp with Memento ink on Basic White.  Cut the saying apart and add with dimensionals.

Finish with the Matte Black Dots.

OSAT for October Cutest Halloween  Cutest Halloween bundle  Gift Bag from 6 x 6  Halloween Punch  Cute Halloween DSP  Pattern Party DSP  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

 

For my 3D item, I made a bag using two pieces of  6 x 6 from the same Pattern Party Host DSP.  Score one side, this one will be the top of the bag, at 3/4.  Score the other three sides at 1 1/4.  You

The 3/4 score line becomes the top of the bag.  Use a Bone Folder to burnish the folds and this section is folded so that it is the band around the top.  Use some glue to hold it in place.  Do this for both pieces.

Burnish the rest of the folds.  The larger areas are the front and back of the bag.  Fold the other sides back.  The bottom fold is for the bottom of the bag.  On one of the pieces only cut away the bottom 2 outside sections.  This is the side that you want to decorate.

I cut a moon from the designer paper using the Inspiring Canopy dies.  Cut another tree just as above.  Don't forget the Adhesive Sheet on the back.

OSAT for October Cutest Halloween  Cutest Halloween Bundle  Beautiful Trees  Halloween Punch  Black and White Gingham Ribbon  Pattern Party DSP  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

Punch the jack-o'-lantern from the Cute Halloween paper with the Halloween punch.  Add with dimensionals.  The Boo! is from the Banner Year stamp set in the annual catalog.  Stamp in Memento on a scrap of Basic White.  Trim around it with snips and add with dimensionals.

Line up the two bags from the bottom.  Add a piece of stronger card board ( I used the designer series paper backing piece) cut at 1 1/8 x 3 1/8 between the two pretty layers for strength.

Now is should kind of fold up on its own.  Glue together.  I do have a video showing how to put a big bag together.  It's about the same.  Find it here.  It will look best if you fold the sides from the front on top of the other.  You'll have a pretty fold instead of edges showing although it's pretty hard to tell.

Use an 8 inch piece of the Black and White Gingham Ribbon for each side.  Punch small holes and tie knots in the ribbon on the inside.  Use some tape inside the bag if needed to keep the ribbon from pulling through.

Here are my card and bag together.  I have a feeling my granddaughter Sagan may get these.  Now to fill that bag with goodies for her.

Christmas Season for Fall

Welcome to the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #686.  This week we are using Evening Evergreen, Pumpkin Pie, and Bumblebee.

CCMC686

Of course these colors are great for fall.  What better set to use than a Christmas one!  I used Christmas Season and the Seasonal Labels dies.  You can get them both together as a bundle with a 10% savings.

CCMC #686 Christmas Season for Fall  Christmas Season Bundle  Christmas Season  Seasonal Labels  Tidings of Christmas DSP  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

The base of the card is Evening Evergreen 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.

The next layer is Basic White, 3 3/4 x 5.  I cut a 1 1/4 inch piece of Evening Evergreen from the Christmas Tidings 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper.  Glue this to the white layer at a diagonal.  Trim away any excess.  Now run this layer through the Cut & Emboss Machine with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder.

The saying on the front of the card is from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set.  Stamp in Evergreen on Basic White.  Use the Tasteful Labels dies to cut this out.  It goes in the center of the card with dimensionals.  Run a length of the Linen Thread around the label.  Add a bow with a glue dot.

CC95E9~1

Stamp and cut out several of the images from Christmas Season.  I cut about 4 of 3 different fronds.  For the one with the berries, I stamped off for the stem.  Use Bumblebee for that one.  I also made stems in Evening Evergreen and Pumpkin Pie.  Arrange around the sentiment label.  Add with a glue dot down near the bottom.  Add a dimensional near the top.

Embellish the card with Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots.

Angels of Peace Fun Fold

I love the angels in the Angels of Peace stamp set found on page 42 of the August-December Mini Catalog for Stampin' Up!  I used this stamp set for my addition to the Tutorial Medley group for October.  Here is my card.

October Tutorial Medley Angels of Peace Card with Belly Band  Ornate Layers dies  Ornate Frames dies  Harvest Meadow DSP  Jo Anne Hewins

Although I love angels, I did have a little trouble making a card using this set.  I do love this one and I've seen others on Pinterest that have my juices going!

This card uses the Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper, the Ornate Layers dies, and the paper piecing technique.

Here are all the measurements and directions.

Angels of Peace

Supplies:

Stamp Sets: Angels of Peace (156365)

Cardstock: Misty Moonlight (153081), Basic White (159276), Soft Suede (115318)

Ink: Memento Black (132708), Misty Moonlight (153118), Petal Pink Combo Blends (154893)

Tools & Accessories: Ornate Frames dies (150664), Ornate Layers dies (152726), Snips (103579), Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack (153620), Adhesive Sheets (152334), Foam Adhesive Sheets (152815), Tear & Tape (154031), Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430), Mini Glue Dots (103683), Bone Folder (102300)

Designer Paper: Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper (156494)

Measurements:

Card Base: Misty Moonlight, score at 2 1/8 from each side, Misty Moonlight 1 x 10 for belly band

Cardstock #2: Basic White 3 ½ x 5 for frame, 2 ¼ x 3 5/8 for angel, scrap for sentiment

Designer Paper #1: 2 pieces of Misty Moonlight 2 x 5 3/8, scraps of blue and bumblebee for paper piecing

Instructions:

Score and fold card base 2 1/8 from each side. Use Bone Folder to burnish folds. Add the 2 pieces of Harvest Meadow DSP to each panel of the outside of the card.

Stamp the angel on the 2 ¼ x 3 5/8 piece of Basic White in Memento Black ink. Stamp the angel again on the Moonlight designer paper and on the Bumblebee designer paper (wings) and on a scrap of Soft Suede (hair). Place some of the Adhesive Sheets to the backs of these pieces of designer paper. That will turn your pieces into stickers.

Carefully cut with snips the areas of the paper for the dress, bird, hair, and wings. Remove the backing and add to the angel. Cut right on the line or just outside. It will look great because you also have the lines from the original angel. Color the skin areas with the Light Petal Pink Blend.

Cut the fancy frame from the other piece of white using the Ornate Layers dies.

Add the angel rectangle to the fancy frame using a piece of the Foam Adhesive Sheet. Add the twine from the Flowers for Every Season around to the back of the angel. Make a bow from the twine to add later.

Stamp the sentiment in Misty Moonlight on a scrap of white and cut out using the Ornate Frames dies. Add a thin strip of Foam Adhesive Sheet to the top and bottom of the sentiment and add to the bottom center of the angel.

Add the bow with a glue dot.

Bend the band around the card making sure that the band can be pulled off and on the card. Adhere the band ends together with Tear & Tape. Adhere the angel piece to the band. Again, use Tear & Tape to the band. Use the design of the frame to help determine the center of the angel piece. You want it to be centered on the card front.
