Hi to you today.  I'm using the Dashing Deer stamp set and the Detailed Deer dies for my project today.  Both are in the Annual catalog.  I've added in a couple more sets, too.

Dashing Deer by Jo Anne Hewins

This is a Christmas card, but could easily be change with the sentiment.  It would make a great masculine birthday card, wouldn't it!

Start with a card base of Soft Suede that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.

There are lots of layers to this card.  The Mossy Meadow layer is 4 x 5 1/4.  Next is a layer of Crumb Cake.  This one measures 3 7/8 x 5 1/8.  Run this through your cutting machine with the Pinewood Plank Embossing Folder.

The next layer is Mossy Meadow again.  This is cut with the Rectangle Stitched Dies.  I used the 4th one from the outside.  

Now cut a layer of Whisper White with the 5th rectangle.  The Whisper White layer is stamped with the evergreen trees from the Waterfront stamp set.  Stamp in Mossy Meadow ink.  Some are stamped off.

Add the white layer to the mossy meadow one.  Run some of the Linen Thread around these layers twice.  I tape the ends of the thread to the back of the card with regular tape.  Add these layers with dimensionals to the card.

Using my Stamparatus, stamp the two deer in Soft Suede on Whisper White.  I used the Stamparatus so that I would be able to stamp more than one time.   I want the deer to be dark and solid.  Cut these out with the Detailed Deer dies.  Glue these to the card.  Be careful.  Part of the deer hang off of the white layer.

Tie a bow of Linen Thread and add it to the card with a rolled up glue dot.

Stamp the work Blessed in Cherry Cobbler on Whisper White.  This word comes from the To a Wild Rose stamp set.  Fussy cut around the word and glue this on the card front.

Dashing Deer Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

Here is the inside of the card.  The saying, in Cherry Cobbler, is from the Winter Woods stamp set.  Stamp a deer in the corner.  Again, I think I would use the Stamparatus for that.

A Snowman Season Easel Card

Don't you love the Snowman Season stamp set and the Snowman Builder Punch?  I have seen so many cute cards with this bundle.  I have a super cute one for you today with a video showing how to make it.  Here's the card.

Snowman Season Easel Card Front by Jo Anne Hewins

This is an easel card.  Here is a side view.

Snowman Season Easel Side View by Jo Anne Hewins

Start with a card base of 4 1/4 x 11 and score at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2.  Fold the card up from the bottom and make a mountain fold.  I used Pool Party card stock.

Stamp in Pool Party ink around the outside of the large surface.  Use the snowflakes from the Snowman Season stamp set.  

The next layer is also from Pool Party.  It measures 3 1/4 x 8 1/2.  Score and fold at 4 1/4.  Add this piece to the middle of the large surface centering it.  This becomes another card and will have a saying inside.

Add a piece of the striped paper from the Let It Snow Specialty paper to the front flap of the card.  This will be cut to 2 1/4 x 4.  The tag on this piece will be used to hold the front flap of the smaller card.  I stamped the Let It Snow sentiment in Real Red ink on a piece of Whisper White.  Add a few of the snowflakes in Pool Party.  Cut this out using the Stitched Nested Labels dies.  Add to the card with dimensionals.  Place the dimensionals at about half way down on the tag.  Center this tag and adhere.  The front flap of the smaller card will slide down behind the tag until it hits the dimensionals.

Snowman Season Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

Add a piece of Whisper White that measures 3 x 4 to the inside of the card.  Stamp Merry Christmas in Real Red.  Stamp the snowman in Memento Black.  Color in the snowman using Dark Pool Party, Dark Pumpkin Pie, and Dark Real Red blends.

For the front of the card add the snow patterned paper from the Let It Snow Specialty paper.  This also measures 3 x 4.  Stamp the two snowmen in Memento Black ink on Whisper White.

Take a strip of Whisper White that is 1 x 3.  Tear off a little of the top of the strip.  Add the strip to the bottom of the patterned paper.  Add some of the new Snowfall Accents Puff Paint.  Heat this with the Heat Tool.  The paint will puff and look like snow!  It's a lot of fun.

Snowman Season by Jo Anne Hewins

Use the Dark Pool Party, Dark Pumpkin Pie, Dark Real Red blends again to color the figures.  Punch out the snowman with the Snowman Builder Punch and fussy cut the other.  Just cut off the arms.  We will add more.  Use the punch to punch out 2 sets of arms from Soft Suede card stock.

Add the snowmen with dimensionals.  Add the arms for  each with a little glue.  

Stamp the hat with Memento Black.  Color in with Light Black, Real Red, and green.  For the video I used Dark Smokey Slate, Dark Real Red, and Dark Granny Apple Green.  I like that better.  Add the hat with a glue dot.

Christmas with the First Frost

The First Frost stamp set and the Frosted Bouquet dies first came on the scene in last year's Holiday catalog.  It is loved by many and made it into the Annual catalog.  It's not a Christmas stamp set, but it sure makes a beautiful Christmas card.

First Frost Christmas Card by Jo Anne Hewins

Start with a base of Blueberry Bushel that measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  The next layer is also Blueberry Bushel cut to 4 1/8 x 5 3/8.  Run this through your die cutting machine with the Scripty Embossing Folder.  Glue to the base.  This makes such a beautiful layer for everything else!

Cut the label from Whisper White.  Use the Stitched Labels dies.  The saying is from the Dashing Deer stamp set.  This set was carried over from last year and is in the Annual catalog.  Cover the word Thanks with scotch tape, ink the stamp in Blueberry Bushel and then take off the tape before you actually stamp.  Cut the word Wishes out from Blueberry Bushel with the Well Written dies.  Adhere the word and then glue the label to the card base.

First Frost Christmas Card Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

Stamp three small flowers on Whisper White in Merry Merlot.  Cut these out using the Frosted Bouquet dies.  Did you notice that there is more than one die for this flower!!!

Cut two of the Merry Merlot sprigs using the same dies.

Cut two Old Olive leaf sprigs using the In the Woods dies.

One flower is glued down.  Add the Old Olive leaves and then the sprigs.  Add the last two flowers with dimensionals.

First Frost Christmas Card Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

All of the inside of the card is stamped using the First Frost stamp set.  The saying is in Blueberry Bushel and the sprig is in Merry Merlot.

First Frost Christmas Card Blueberry Burst by Jo Anne Hewins

There is a lot of cutting out for this card using dies, but it is really a pretty easy card.

Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge # 583 To a Wild Rose

It's Thursday!  Time for another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.  This week we have a color challenge.

CCMC583

I am using the To a Wild Rose stamps set for this challenge.

CCMC#583 To a wild Rose by Jo Anne Hewins

Start with Thick Whisper White cut to 4 1/4 x 11.  Score at 5 1/2 and fold.  Burnish with your Bone Folder.

Add a piece of the Pretty Peacock gingham check from the 2019-2021 In Color Designer Series Paper.  This is cut to 1 1/2 x 4 1/4.  Glue to the lower half of the card front.

The large flower in the To a Wild Rose stamp set can be a 3 part stamp process.  I have a video showing how I stamped the flowers for this card.  Stamp on Whisper White.  I'll tell you the process, but the video might add some clarity.  Stamp 3 flowers.

1)  Stamp the outline of the rose in Pretty Peacock ink.

2)  Stamp the most solid stamp in stamped off Bermuda Bay ink.

3)  Stamp the detailed stamp in stamped off Pretty Peacock.

You can match the parts of this flower.  I do explain in the video.  Find a part of the flower that you see in each stamp.  Adhere the stamps so that part is in the same place for each stamp.  This will help you match.  Here is the video.

 

Fussy cut out two of the flowers for the front of the card.  Cut out the third for the inside of the card.  Add about three glue dots to the center of the cards for the front.  Add dimensionals around the outside of the flowers.  Attach to the cards.  Hint:  There are dies called Wild Rose dies.  I even have them.  Somehow I forgot about them.

CCMC #583 To a Wild Rose Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

The leaves for these flowers are made using the Gathered Leaves dies.  Spritz the Old Olive cardstock and send the three leaf dies through your die cutting machine.  Do these 2 times for a total of 6 leaves.  Let dry.  Add some of the leaves with dimensionals and some with glue.  One of the leaves goes inside.

The saying, in Pretty Peacock, is from the To a Wild Rose stamp set.

Here is the inside of my card.  The saying is from To a Wild Rose.
