Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #601 Under My Umbrella

Welcome to you!  There is a color challenge this week on the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.  We are using Purple Posy, Pretty Peacock, and Old Olive.

CCMC601

I'm using the Under My Umbrella bundle.  It has the Under My Umbrella stamp set and the Umbrella Builder Punch.  I'm so glad that Stampin' Up! has introduced so many new punches with the January-June Mini Catalog.  I love punches!  Here is my card for today.

CCMC#601 Under My Umbrella by Jo Anne Hewins

This card makes me think of spring.  I love the soft colors and crispness of the Whisper White.  Here's how to make it.

The card base is Purple Posy cut to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  The next layer is Pretty Peacock measuring 3 5/8 x 4 7/8.  Finally the Whisper White layer is 3 1/2 x 4 3/4.  Run the white layer through a die cutting machine with the Eyelet Lace Embossing Folder.

The saying for this card is from the Under My Umbrella stamp set.  Stamp in Pretty Peacock on Whisper White.  Cut out with the Stitched Rectangle dies.  Add with dimensionals.

I used the Purple Posy and Pretty Peacock paper from the Woven Threads Designer Series Paper.  Stamp the umbrella and boots on this paper in Pretty Peacock ink.  Punch out the umbrella with the Umbrella Builder Punch.  Cut out the boots with snips.

Punch out a handle from Pretty Peacock card stock.  Glue the handle to the white.  Color about 12" of Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding with a Light Purple Posy Blend.  Tie in a bow and add to the handle with a glue dot.

CCMC #601 Under My Umbrella Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

Stamp the two different larger flowers twice on a piece of Whisper White.  Stamp in Pretty Peacock.  Color these in with Light Purple Posy, Light and Dark Pretty Peacock, and Light Old Olive Blends.  Fussy cut.  Add the flower clusters to the umbrella and boots.  You might need to trim down one of the flowers to fit.  The flowers, umbrella, and boots are all added with dimensionals.

Finish off with some sequins from the Iridescent Sequin Assortment.  Some of them have a purple tint to them.

CCMC #601 Under My Umbrella Inside of Card by Jo Anne Hewins

Here's the inside of my card.  It's all part of the Under My Umbrella stamp set.  For the bottom alternate stamping the two flower clusters.  Stamp in Pretty Peacock.  Color as on the front of the card.

This was definitely a fun card to make.  I hope you will try it!

NC Demo Blog Hop for February Bug Out!

Welcome to the North Carolina Demo Blog Hop for February!  Are you ready for some bugs?  That's our theme for this month.  I kind of like it.  Real bugs are not my favorite, but I can handle cute little stamped bugs for sure! 

Join us blog

You might have just come from Ariel's blog.  I know you like her project.  If you are just starting, please visit the others on this hop.  NC has some very talented stampers (and good people, too!).  Here is my project!

Wiggle Worm Card by Jo Anne Hewins

I used the Wiggle Worm Bundle.  It has the Wiggle Worm stamp set and the Wiggly Bugs dies.  This was a set that did not appeal to me at all.  Yes, I said it.  We often change our minds about things like that.  I decided that my granddaughter Sagan and great nephew Clark just might like some bugs.  After all they are both Cute as a Bug!  So I bit the bullet and bought the bundle for this hop.  I'll be using it for many other projects.  I had this project in my mind.  It's one of those that actually turned out the way I imagined it!  Here are some details.

The base is Thick Whisper White card stock cut at 4 1/4 x 11, scored, and folded at 5 1/2.

Cut the Balmy Blue checked paper to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  This paper is from the Subtles 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper.  I used the Multipurpose Liquid Glue to add large pieces of paper.  It has just enough give so that you can situate everything perfectly.

Cut a piece of Garden Green card stock to 3 1/4 x 4 3/4.  Now cut A LOT of the grass from the Wiggly Bugs dies.  I'm not sure how many I used, but it was a bunch.  Start at the top of the paper.  Add glue only along the bottom of each grass strip and adhere.  Keep adding these until the paper is filled.  I did try to shift them from side to side just a little.  Cut this out with a die from the Nature's Thoughts dies.  These dies are part of the Coordination Product Release available through the end of March.  So, it is SUPER hard to get all of this through the die cut machine.  There a lots of layers.  I did end up just completing the cuts along the side with snips.  You could just trim the paper to size.  I just loved the edging on this rectangle!  It will come out super flat.  I used the point on my Take Your Pick Tool to gently lift up the layers of the grass to look more natural.  I wanted to be able to stick in the bugs so they looked like they were in the grass.

Wiggle Worm Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

All of the bugs are stamped on Whisper White.  Each bug also has some decorative designs that can be added.  They are photopolymer so it's pretty easy to match them up.  I did use the illustrations on page 104 of the Annual Catalog to help me see how the parts went together.  Don't you love that Stampin' Up! has so many ideas in their catalogs!  I used these colors of pads:  Memento Black, Garden Green, Gorgeous Grape, Early Espresso, Pumpkin Pie, and Real Red.  Just use your imagination!

The bugs were added to the panel with dimensionals.

The bugs were colored with Blends.  I used Light Real Red, Light Pumpkin Pie, Light Granny Apple Green, Dark So Saffron, Light Crumb Cake, Light and Dark Balmy Blue.

Use the Real Red Cotton Ribbon from page 174 in the Annual Catalog along the bottom of the green panel.  Tie a knot to one side.  The saying is stamped in Real Red on a Whisper White scrap.  Add with a glue dot to the left and a dimensionals on the right since it goes over the side.

Add additional bugs to the sides around the card.  Some of them were trimmed to stick out.

Wiggle Worm Inside  of Card by Jo Anne Hewins

The saying on the inside is from Wiggle Worm stamped in Real Red.  Cut the large leaf with the Wiggly Bugs dies.  Glue on.  I added the inside back in for a solid look.  Add that cute little worm.

You might be wondering why I added a white insert in my card since it would already be white.  Usually this would be to cover up some type of mistake.  This time I just did it without thinking.  I mention this because that is a way to hide mistakes!

Wiggle Worm Project by Jo Anne Hewins

Thanks for your time!  Please check out all of our blogs this month.  Who knew bugs could be so cute and beautiful?  Amy is next!

Easter Promise Don't You Love a Crocus!

Good Morning!  Today, I'm sharing a card using the stamp set Easter Promise.  It's on page 45 of the January-June Mini Catalog.  I'm part of a group of demonstrators that are working together to make projects available for all of us to use.  This is my contribution for February.

Easter Promise by Jo Anne Hewins

I must admit that this set seemed a challenge for me.  I also must say that I'm really proud of my card.  I think it's beautiful.  I wrote a tutorial for the group so here it goes.

Supplies:

Stamp Sets: Easter Promise #151544

Cardstock: Highland Heather #146986, Whisper White #100730

Ink: Highland Heather #147103 pad, Tuxedo Black Memento pad #132708, Light Highland Heather #146881, Dark Highland Heather #146883, Combo #147276, Light Granny Apple Green #146876, Dark Daffodil Delight #144585, Light Mango Melody #147943, Color Lifter #144608

Tools & Accessories: Subtle EF #151775, Paper Snips #103579, Stitched So Sweetly dies #151690, Multipurpose Liquid Glue #110755, Stampin’ Dimensionals #104430, Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding #151326, Glue Dots #103683, Grid Paper #130148

Designer Paper: Subtles DSP #149615

Misc: Bow Maker

Measurements:

Card Base: 5 ½ x 8 ½, score and fold at 4 ¼ in Highland Heather

Cardstock #2: 4 x 5 ¼ Whisper White

Cardstock #3:

Designer Paper: 1 ½ x 5 ¼ Highland Heather check

Instructions:

Stamp the row of crocuses across the bottom of the Whisper White layer in Tuxedo Black Memento ink starting at the left. You will need to stamp right beside the first stamping to finish across the row to the other side of the paper. The area where these two stampings meet will be covered with designer paper.

Color in the flowers as you please using Light and Dark Highland Heather, Light Granny Apple Green, Dark Daffodil Delight, and Dark Mango Melody Blends.

Run this layer through a die cutting machine with the Subtle EF. Run this through once with the paper up and down in the folder. Run again with the paper turned sideways in the folder. This gives a linen look to the layer.

Add the Highland Heather check paper to the card. I use Grid Paper to help make sure to get the layer straight. Make sure to cover where the two stampings meet.

Cut the banner piece from a scrap of Whisper White.

Stamp the larger group of crocuses on scrap Whisper White in Tuxedo Black Memento ink. Color in with the same colors as above. Use the Color Lifter on the crocus that is only Light Highland Heather in spots to lighten. Fussy cut the flowers out.

Add the flowers to the banner. Put glue on the stems and dimensionals behind the flowers.

Color Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding with the Dark Highland Heather Blend. Color a 2” piece and a 12” piece. The short piece goes around the bottom of the banner. Tape from the back. Make a bow with the long piece and add with a glue dot. I used a bow maker to make my bow.

Add the banner with dimensionals.

Stamp the saying from Easter Promise on scrap Whisper White. Cut apart the words needed and glue to the card.

Add the large white layer to the front of the card with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

For the inside of the card, stamp the large Happy Easter in Highland Heather.

Stamp the large flowers again and color in the one on the right. Fussy cut and add in the right bottom corner.

Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #600 Pleased As Punch

Hello to you today.  As part of the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge I have a card based on our sketch.

CCMC600

I haven't used the Pleased As Punch Designer Series Paper yet.  It's part of the Coordination Product Release.  This paper is so bright and colorful.  It also coordinates with the Tulip Builder Punch, the Umbrella Builder Punch, and the Small Bloom Punch.  You get 3 each of 4 double sided sheets.  It's only available until the end of March.  Here is my card.

CCMC#600 Pleased as Punch Sketch by Jo Anne Hewins

There's not much stamping to this one.  I think these colors would bring cheer to anyone!

The card base is Thick Whisper White that is 4 1/4 x 11, scored and folded at 5 1/2.

The stripe paper is cut to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  I like to add this layer with the Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  It gives just a little time to adjust the paper perfectly.

The raindrop paper measures 3 x 4.  Glue down right in the center of the card.

There is a small long rectangle of green down near the bottom of the raindrop paper.  It's from the back of the tulip paper in the same pack.  It is 1/2 x 4.  I was able to get this from scraps even though I punch out a lot of the tulips.

The next layer is from the Brights 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper from the Annual Catalog.  Cut it to 3/4 x 3 1/4.  Place this with dimensionals over the small rectangle.

CCMC #600 Pleased as Punch DSP Sketch by Jo Anne Hewins

The saying is from the Timeless Tulips stamp set.  Stamp in Balmy Blue on a scrap of Whisper White.   I put glue along the top and dimensionals along the bottom.

The tulip is punched with the Tulip Builder Punch.  Instead of punching the leaves from the tulip side, I punched them from the green side.  There's no matching things up!  The leaves have a glue dot at the bottom and a dimensional out at the end.

CCMC #600 Pleased as Punch DSP Inside of Card by Jo Anne Hewins

The inside of the card has another tulip.  The stem is just a 1/4 inch strip from scrap.  The saying is from the Sending You Thoughts stamp set (Sale-a-Bration).  Stamp in Balmy Blue.

This was actually my second card using this sketch and the tulips.  Here is my first.

CCMC#600 Pleased as Punch Tulip Bouquet by Jo Anne Hewins

This just has more tulips.  Which one do you like best?  I thought this one might hide too much of the raindrop piece in the background.
