One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop Christmas in July

Welcome to the One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop for July.  Our theme is Christmas in July.  I'm so glad you are here!

Stampin' Up! has a fabulous July-December Mini Catalog coming to you on August 3rd.  I have an order coming with some great new products.  I don't have them for this hop.  My card and 3D item use products from our Annual Catalog.

OSAT for July Christmas in July Card by Jo Anne Hewins

I'm using the Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper for this card.  You can find this 6 x 6 paper in the Annual Stampin' Up! catalog.

Start with a base of Thick Basic White that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, score and fold at 4 1/4.  Cover the entire front with designer paper measuring 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  I used the Evening Evergreen herringbone look.

Add a strip of Soft Succulent DSP cut to 1 1/2 x 4 1/4.

Pull out the Tailor Made Tags dies and cut 2 of them from different patterns of the same paper pack.  I used the largest size die for this.

OSAT for July Christmas in July Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

Cut another tag from Basic White using the 2nd largest tag.  Use the Banner Year stamp set that was carried over into the Annual Catalog.  I embossed the saying in gold using my Versamark pad, Metallics Embossing Powders, and my Heat Tool.  Stamp holly leaves and berries using Soft Succulent and Cherry Cobbler pads.  Cut a circle re-enforcer from the gold paper from the Gold & Rose Gold 6 x 6 Metallic Specialty Paper and add.  Add the tags and tie with the gold trim from the Simply Elegant Trim.

Cut about 4 of the stems from the Poinsettia dies using the same gold paper.  Cut these stems apart and add to the card where you think they are needed.  Reserve one of the stems for the 3D item.

Of course you want to add designer paper to the flap of your envelope.  Just glue a piece of paper just a little larger than the flap and trim around to fit.

OSAT for July Christmas in July  3D Holder by Jo Anne Hewins

Here is my coordinating 3D item.  It's a small gift bag perfect for candy, sanitizer, lotion, or whatever you can find.  Make this holder from a piece of 6 x 6 patterned paper from the Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper.  Score the paper at 1 3/8 intervals across.  Turn the paper one quarter turn and score at 1 3/8.  Use the Bone Folder to burnish the folds.  On the end where you made only one score trim up on the folds to the score line.  Cut off the tiny little section that's left.  You might want to angle the cuts a tiny bit.  Add Tear and Tape to the smallest area on the side with several score lines.  It's above the same area that you trimmed off the tiny rectangle.  Adhere the sides of the box.  Now pull up the pieces for the bottom of the box.  

Push in the sides of the box at the top and tie around using the gold trim from the Simply Elegant Trim.  I tied into a knot to start.  Be sure to fill your box before you tie it closed!  Add in the gold stem.  Cut the second smallest tag in the patterned paper and one from Basic White in the smallest size.  The gold embossed saying is again from Banner Year.  Stamp the holly leaves and berries on white scrap, fussy cut, and add to the tag.  Add another gold re-enforcer.  Finish tying your bow.

Case the Catalog Page 28 Pansies

Welcome to the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #671.  This week we are casing the annual catalog on page 28.

CCMC671

My CASE (Copy and Share Everything) is pretty close to the one in the catalog.  I did change a few things.  I do love this sample just as it is.

CCMC #671 Case the Catalog page 28 by Jo Anne Hewins

I used the Fresh Freesia Ombre Gift Bag just as in the sample.  They used the Checks embossing folder.  I chose to use the Dots Embossing Folder.  They are actually from the same group, the Checks/Dots Embossing Folders.  These are smaller folders and can be used in the smaller Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine.  The way I used the folder you will need the larger Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine.  You'll have to emboss the bag in two pass throughs.  Put the SU name to the front.  Put the folder sideways starting at the bottom.  When you run the folder through, the fold of the folder will be on the side.  Be very careful.  You do not want to get this side caught on the side of the machine.  It will ruin the folder.  There is enough room so that this does not need to be a problem.  Move the folder up to emboss the rest of the bag.  Pay attention to the dots to line it all up properly. Run through the second time.

The patterned paper is from the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper.  Cut it to 3 x 4 3/4.

The next layer is Vellum Card Stock.  Cut to 2 1/2 x 4 3/4.  Use the largest rectangle in the Stitched So Sweetly dies.  Pull the Vellum through the die with the Vellum on top of the die.  Pull through so that the other end of the vellum is under the die.  You only want to cut this end to add the stitching and scallops.  Place on the machine so that this end goes in first.  You only need to cut over the end and then back out of the machine.

The Pansy Petals paper has two designs that are flowers (large and small) and leaves (2 shapes and several colors).  These flowers and leaves can be cut out using the Pansy dies.  I cut all of these out and just keep them in an envelope to use whenever I need them.  It's pretty handy.  I created a design of flowers for the Vellum piece in the center.  Add all of the flowers and leaves with dimensionals.

Stamp the saying at the bottom of the Vellum piece.  The saying is from the Pansy Patch stamp set.  I stamped in Evening Evergreen.  To make sure that I got a good image, I lined everything up on my Stamparatus.  I was able to stamp more than once and make a dark image.  Put dimensionals on the back of the Vellum behind the flowers.  This will give the Vellum a little lift at the bottom.  

CCMC #671 Case the Catalog pg 28 Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

Tie some of the Evening Evergreen Open Weave In Color Ribbon around the layer and tie a bow.  It helps me to put a glue dot under the first tie and then continue tying the bow.  Be careful that you will be able to adhere the layer to the bag without bowing from the ribbon.

Adhere.

That's all there is.  What will you put inside this beautiful bag?

CCMC#671 Case the Catalog page 28 by Jo Anne Hewins

The Ombre Gift Bags are on page 137 of the Annual Catalog.  You get 20 for $6 and they come in Evening Evergreen, Soft Succulent, Polished Pink, Pale Papaya, and Fresh Freesia.  That's all 5 of the new In Colors.  I did several projects with the bags on my last post.  I'll add a link to it at the end of this post.  I was influenced by Linda Heller for this project.  Here is a picture.

Ombre Gift Bag by Jo Anne Hewins

I shared this gift card holder with the stampers in the NC Demo Facebook Group on Saturday.  I'll share that video on this post as well.  For this holder, you'll fold the bag in half just to the zigzag.  Trim making sure you also cut the bottom of the bag.  Trim as little as you can to keep the bag as large as it can be.  This will make 2 openings for our project.

I'm going to list items used.  The video should make everything clear.

1 piece of Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper 1 x 5.  Score at 1/2.  This is for spine of holder.

2 pieces of Basic White using the 2nd largest rectangle from the Scalloped Contours dies.

2 pieces of Basic White using the 3rd largest rectangle from the Scalloped Contours dies.

Here are the projects we made this week.

Ombre Gift Bag Duo by Jo Anne Hewins

I'm using the Pale Papaya bags for these cards, but let me tell you about the Ombre Gift Bags.  You get 20 bags for $6.  The come in all of the new In Colors Pale Papaya, Fresh Freesia, Evening Evergreen, Polished Pink, and Soft Succulent.  They are great for packaging or adding a little extra to special cards.

Ombre Bags and Plenty of Patterns Masks by Jo Anne Hewins

For this bag I used the Plenty of Patterns Decorative Masks and a Blending Brush to add more Pale Papaya ink to the bag.  The ribbon used is from the Flowers for Every Season Combo Pack.  To finish the bag use the Hand-Penned Memories and More Card Pack.  The sticker is also from the pack.

Ombre Bags and Hand-Penned Cards and Envelopes by Jo Anne Hewins

Inside the bag I used the Hand-Penned Memories and More Cards and Envelopes.  These are a real bargain.  You get 20 of these for $10.  Wow!  I turned the card inside out and used the white for the front.  I used the decorative masks again over the front.  The Pale Papaya layer is 4 1/4 x 6 1/4.  Now add another of the Memories and More cards and a sticker.  I love how the Cards and Envelopes fit right inside the bags.  It just makes everything a little more special.

Ombre Bags with Card Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

Here is the inside of the card.  Add a piece of Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper cut to 4 x 6.  Add more sticker from the card pack.

Ombre Gift Bag with Tailor Made Tags by Jo Anne Hewins

Here is the second bag we decorated.  Again I used the Plenty of Patterns masks.  The tags are cut from the Hand-Penned designer paper using the Tailor Made Tags dies.  These are a stand alone set of dies.  They are really going to be a staple for my card making.  I used the Pale Papaya In Color Ribbon as well.  For the saying, it's stamped in Misty Moonlight.  The stamp is from the Shaded Summer stamp set and is cut out using the Tasteful Labels dies.  Tags and the saying are added with dimensionals.

Ombre Bags Inside Card by Jo Anne Hewins

This is the card inside the card.  The base is Soft Succulent measuring 4 1/2 x 11 and scored at 5 1/2.  Use the decorative masks with Soft Succulent ink and a Blending Brush.  The label is cut from Basic White using the Scalloped Contours dies.  The saying is from the Welcoming Window stamp set.  The flower, from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set, is stamped and colored using the Pale Papaya, Soft Succulent, and Daffodil Delight Blends Combo packs.  Cut with the Penned Flowers dies.

I think this gives you any information you might need.  Here's the video!

 

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit with me today.  I have an additional project on my blog post on Monday.  I hope you'll take a look.  There will be a video with that post as well.

If you need any supplies, I would love to be your demonstrator if you don't already have one.

One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop for June Boys in the Hood

Welcome to the One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop for June.  Our theme is Boys in the Hood.  That means it's all for the guys!  I'm afraid guys don't get the time they might deserve in this card making thing.  I admit that I have a hard time with it.  Just give me flowers!

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

I'm glad you are here and I did come up with a card and box that I think are just the thing.  I'm using the Biggest Wish stamp set and the Bloom Where You're Planted Designer Series Paper.  I've also added in a few other products.  Let's go!

OSAT for June Masculine Card by Jo Anne Hewins

I think the Biggest Wish stamp set and the Stamparatus are a great couple.

My base is Basic Black measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored and folded at 4 1/4.

Cut a piece of the wood grain paper from Bloom Where You're Planted that is 4 x 5 1/4.

Set up the Stamparatus to stamp right on this designer paper.  The HAPPY will need to be places between two of the hinges near the top of the paper.  Start at the top and stamp with Cinnamon Cider ink.  I did need to ink more than once.  Pull up the plastic plate and attach again at the  groove below as you go along.  Make sure that your placement of the word HAPPY allows you room to have the word birthday.

To stamp the word birthday, make sure to rub over the already stamped HAPPY with an Embossing Buddy or a used dryer sheet to remove static.  Stampin' Up! no longer sells the embossing buddy, but you might still have one.  Place the birthday stamp on the other side of the plastic plate already used.  Stamp with Versamark.  In the beginning I did one word at a time stamping, adding black embossing powder, heating, and repeating.  I did the last two words at the same time.  I think you can do what is comfortable for you.  Do emboss each word with black embossing powder from the Basics Stampin' Emboss Powders.  This package contains white, black, and clear powders.

Add a piece of the brick paper from the Bloom Where You're Planted DSP that is 3/4 x 5 1/4 on the left side of the card.  Add a piece of Basic Black that is 1/4 x 5 1/4.

OSAT for June masculine card close up by Jo Anne Hewins

I love that these stamps can be stamped opposite from each other.  On the tags I stamped BIRTHDAY in the large letters in Cinnamon Cider and then embossed the happy in black.  Stamp these on the brick patterned paper.

Cut the tag with the second largest of the Tailored Made Tags dies.  I used the more plain tags.  These dies also have dies to add around the hole in the tag.  I love that look!

Cut an additional tag from the black and white check from the Pattern Party Designer Series Paper.  

Add these together with the black twine from the Baker's Twine Essentials Pack.  Add tags to the card with dimensionals.

Finish off the card with the Matte Black Dots.

OSAT for June Masculine Mini Paper Pumpkin Box by Jo Anne Hewins

For my 3D project, I used the Mini Paper Pumpkin Box.  I filled it with Tootsie Rolls.  They are one of my husband's favorites.

The top of the box has a layer of the black and white check measuring 3 5/8 x 5 1/2.  Add a piece of the brick paper that measures 2 x 3 5/8 and another 1/4 inch strip of Basic Black.

Make the tag in the same way with the wood print designer paper.  Add to the card with dimensionals.

Add the Matte Black Dots.

I did decorate the sides of the box with the brick paper.  You need 2 that are 7/8 x 3 5/8 and two that are 7/8 x 5 5/8.
