Zany Zebras In Magenta Madness

I think I said this before, but I love the Zany Zebras stamp set.  I can picture my granddaughter and I stamping away together.  I'm going to have to take it with me the next time I see her.  I have a zebra card for you using our new In Color Magenta Madness.  Let me tell you it is bright pink!  Sagan loves pink!

Zany Zebras Hinge Stamping Card by Jo Anne Hewins

This is an easy card to make.  The base is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored, and folded at 4 1/4.  Use a Bone Folder to burnish.

Set up the Happy Birthday stamp, or any stamp, on the Stamparatus.  Make sure that the stamp is between the hinges on the plastic plate.  Simply ink and stamp.  Lift off plate and place it down a hinge.  Ink and stamp.  Continue until you've gone down the right side of the card base.  I used Memento Black ink.

The Magenta Madness dotted paper is from the 2020-2022 In Color 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper.  Cut it to 1 1/2 x 5 1/2 and adhere down the left side of the card base.  Run a length of the Magenta Madness Ribbon around the card.  Start behind where the oval will go, run all the way around and end at the same place.  I just used regular scotch tape it hold it.  Tie a bow with the ribbon and set aside to add later.

Zany Zebras Hinge Stamping by Jo Anne Hewins

Stamp the zebra in Memento Black on a piece of Whisper White.  Use the Stitched Shapes dies to cut out the oval.  Use the largest one.  Now cut out the coordinating scallop die with the magenta card stock.  Glue the two together.  Add to the card with dimensionals.

Stamp the birthday sentiment on white scrap paper.  Punch out with the Classic Label Punch.  Glue to the bottom of the oval. 

Now let me point out that any sayings would work for this card.  It does not have to be for a birthday.  I'll have to make it again with a different saying for Sagan since she has an April birthday.  I won't know where to find it by then.  Of course maybe we could celebrate her half birthday since we couldn't celebrate the real one very well! 

Add the bow with a glue dot.

Add a few of the 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots.

Zany Zebras Hinge Stamping Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

Inside, stamp another zebra.  Be sure to add a shadow.  The shadow on the front was actually hidden by the label.  The saying is from the Zany Zebras stamp set.

There you have it, easy as pie.

I'm going to practice my Facebook Live today at 11:00 am ET by making this card.  It will be on my Business Page.  I hope you can join me.  Please like my page while you are there.  Thanks in advance.  I'll share it here when I get it all figured out.

Lovely You is a Sweet Set with a Great Punch

Welcome to the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #617.  Today we have are using the colors Melon Mambo, Mango Melody, and Granny Apple Green.

CCMC617

I hate to say this, but I'm just not a brights person.  When I see colors like this I'm a little frightened.  It's out of my box.  But that's the thing about a challenge.  It makes you try new things.  Most of the time I end up loving the colors together.  That's what happened this week.  The colors grew on me!

CCMC #617 Lovely You by Jo Anne Hewins

I used the Lovely You stamp set and the new Lovely Labels Pick a Punch.  You can buy them as a bundle and save 10%.  Here are all the details.

The base is Mango Melody that measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and is folded at 4 1/4.  Use your Bone Folder to burnish the fold.  The next layer is Melon Mambo.  It is cut to 3 7/8 x 5 1/8.  

The Whisper White layer is 3 3/4 x 5.  To stamp the larger flower with two colors, use the Brights Stampin' Write Markers and the Stamparatus.  I find that I don't always get a good solid image when I color directly on the stamp with markers.  The Stamparatus steps in to save the day.  Mount the image in the center of the Stamparatus plate.  Now you can move the layer around, steady with the magnets, stamp several times, and then move the layer to another spot.  I'll have a video later in this post to show what I mean.

Once the large flower has been stamped randomly over the layer, add in the smaller flower in Mango Melody and the design in Melon Mambo where they will fit.

Run the white layer through a die cut machine with the Tasteful Textile embossing folder.  It adds such a pretty look to the card.  Glue it to the Melon Mambo layer.

Color a piece of the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding that is 5 1/2 inches long with the Dark Granny Apple Green Blend.  Run across the layers just below the center and tape to the back.  Glue this layer to the card base.

CCMC #617 Lovely You Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

For the tag, cut a Granny Apple Green strip to 3/4 inch.  Stamp the saying from Lovely You in Versamark, sprinkle with the White Emboss Powder, and heat.  Punch the ends of the saying with the Lovely You Pick a Punch.  There's a hint on punching in the video!  Add with dimensionals.

Color more of the ribbon for a bow and add with a glue dot.

Stamp three of the Mango Melody flowers on a scrap of Whisper White and fussy cut.  Add to the labels with a little glue where needed and a dimensional where needed.

CCMC #617 Lovely You Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

The inside of the card has a saying from Lovely You.  Use the Stamparatus for the flower.  Here is the video for stamping the card.

A Beautiful World Birthday

My husband is a geography guy.  He taught Middle School Social Studies where they focused on Europe, Asia, and Africa.  When I showed him the World Of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper, he got really excited.  His birthday is coming up in August, and I think this will be his card.  I just noticed the actual paper with the world isn't on this card, but the world is.  And now I notice that I should have put the other side of the world cut out.  Well, maybe this is like the card that he will get with a few modifications.  That will be easy with the supplies that go with the World of Good Suite.

Beautiful World June Class by Jo Anne Hewins

The base of this card is the Cinnamon Cider cut to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  Take another piece that measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 and run it through a die cut machine with the new Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder.  This folder does just what it says-gives the paper an old look.  Glue this layer directly to the front of the card base.

The Early Espresso layer is 3 x 4.  Run it through a die cut machine with the new Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.  From the center of this layer cut out the stand for the globe using the Old World Map dies.  Add leaning to the left.

The patterned paper, from World of Good Specialty, is 3 x 4.  Place it go that it is straight on the card.

Beautiful World June Class Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

Cut the circle from the dies from Misty Moonlight card stock.  Cut the world from Garden Green card stock.  Adhere the two.  Add the globe and its stand with dimensionals.

The saying for this card is from the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set.  Stamp in Early Espresso on a 3/4 inch strip.  Trim the ends.  Add with dimensionals.  

Take a piece of Linen Thread that is about 4 inches and fold it over.  Tie a knot.  Trim the ends as needed and fray the ends.  Add to the sentiment with a glue dot.

Finish the card with three of the Cinnamon Cider dots from the 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots.

Beautiful World June Class Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

For the inside of the card, the saying is from the Seaside Notions stamp set.  I love the font of this set.  Stamp the ink well and feather.  All stamping is done in Early Espresso.

We made this card in my classes last week.  I do love how it turned out.

Zany Zebras in Misty Moonlight

Hello!  I'm practicing doing a Facebook Live today.  I did it with my team on their Luv 2 Create page.  I think it turned out all right so I'm going to put it on YouTube and share.  Here is the card I shared.

Zany Zebras White Emboss Project by Jo Anne Hewins

This is made with Thick Whisper White card stock that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  Score and fold at 4 1/4.

With the Stampin' Trimmer, trim 1 inch from the right side of the card.

Using the Misty Moonlight dotted paper from the 2020-2022 In Color Designer Series Paper, cut a piece that is 1 1/8 x 5 1/2.  Add to the right side of the inside of the card.

Now just stamp the saying and stars randomly on the card front.   Fold the card as normal when stamping near the left edge.   Make sure and open the card when stamping on the right.  That will protect surfaces.  Stamp in Misty Moonlight ink.

Stamp the zebra in Versamark on Misty Moonlight card stock and emboss with White Emboss Powder and the Heat Tool.  Cut out the image with the 2nd largest square from the Stitched Shapes dies.

Zany Zebras White Emboss Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

Add some of the sparkly twine from the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack.

Now add the zebra with dimensionals.  Make sure not to put dimensionals on the part that hangs over the front.

Stamp a saying and another zebra on the inside.
