Stampin' Bingo for the January-June Mini Catalog

With each new catalog, I hold a Bingo event at a nearby cafe/bakery.  We have a great time!  Today I want to share with you all about our event.  

Bingo February 1  2020 January-June Mini Catalog by Jo Anne Hewins

Everyone went home with these goodies and some with more.  We have a Seat Gift and Goody, Door Prizes, two Make & Takes, and of course, Bingo games (8 this time) with Stampin' Up! items from the January-June Mini Catalog.  This time Bingo prizes ranged from $18 (Label Me Lovely Punch) all the way up to $70 (Botanical Prints Product Medley) by the end of the day.  I give out great prizes!!!

Bingo February 1  2020 Seat Gift by Jo Anne Hewins

Our Seat Gift was 1/4 pack of the beautiful Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Each package was decorated with a banner.  I used the largest rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly dies for my Petal Pink shape.  Stamp all over with the front with the script stamp from the Parisian Beauty stamp set, also in Petal Pink.  Stamp the flowers from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in Basic Gray.  I stamped from each top corner and up from the middle of the bottom.  Add the Eiffel tower in Basic Gray.  Cut that from the Parisian dies.  The Parisian Beauty stamp set and the Parisian dies can be purchased as a bundle.  Stamp a single flower and color with the Light and Dark Petal Pink Blends.  Cut with the Cherry Blossom dies.  The word friend is from the Forever Blossoms stamp set.  The Forever Blossoms stamp set and the Cherry Blossom dies can also be purchased as a bundle.  Punch with the Classic Label Punch.  Use about 3 inches of the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding behind the flower.  I will share a card that I made using this banner in a later post.  I mean, we can't possibly just throw it away!  This project certainly shows how Stampin' Up! products work so well together!

Bingo February 1  2020 Hershey Bar Decor by Jo Anne Hewins

Now of course you are going to need a little chocolate when playing games.  This is a small Hershey bar.  I cut the From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper to wrap around the candy bar.  Measurements would vary according to size.  I colored a 4 inch length of the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding with a Dark Flirty Flamingo Blend.  It's so easy to do.  Next comes a heart of Flirty Flamingo cut using the Stitched Be Mine dies from the Annual Catalog.  The flower bud is from the Forever Blossoms stamp set.  Color with the Light and Dark Flirty Flamingo and the Light Old Olive Blends.  Cut out with the Cherry Blossom dies.  So cute!

All Dressed Up Dies and Golden Honey Specialty DSP

This was our first Make & Take of the day.  I used the All Dressed Up dies to make this purse using the Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Believe it or not, this paper is a free Sale-a-Bration choice.  The Lovely Lily Pad stamp set and the Lily Pad dies are also free choices.  Please ask me about it.  I want to help you get free stuff.  This project was featured on the 3D Thursday Designer page here.  There is a downloadable tutorial for it on the site.  You can click here.  I think I have it set right.  If there is a problem, please send me a message!  My treat here is a Little Debbie cake.  I split the two pack and used the 3 x 9 Printed Gusseted Cellophane Bags.  I did cut 2 inches off the top.  It's tied with a 8 inch length of the Lovely Lipstick Grosgrain Ribbon.

Bingo February 1  2020 Clear Treat Box with From My Heart Specialty Paper by Jo Anne Hewins

Our second Make & Take used the Clear Tiny Treat Boxes from the Annual Catalog.  Pull off the clear plastic that covers part of the box and put it together.  Use a strip of 1 1/2 x 8 1/2 paper from the From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Begin on the top and finger fold this paper around the box.  Adhere the paper to itself.  That way it becomes a belly band and can easily be taken off.  Wrap a piece of the Real Red Double Stitched Ribbon  around the paper and adhere at the top of the box.  Use the Heart Punch Pack to punch a scalloped heart of Flirty Flamingo and a designed heart from the From My Heart paper.  Add all of these pieces with dimensionals.  Next goes a 4 inch piece of the red ribbon folded over.  The saying is from the Under My Umbrella stamp set.  I used only the bottom line of the saying.  Punch out with the Classic Label Punch and add with dimensionals.  Don't forget to fill your box with something great first!  I used Hershey kisses and a little bit of red shred.

I always forget to take pictures of my events.  I did take a few at the beginning.  Then no more.  Here are some of my lovely ladies and one guy!

One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop for January, Purses, Poppies, and Paris

Welcome to the One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop for January.  We are celebrating the new January-June Mini Catalog with our theme Purses, Poppies, and Paris.  You are going to see some great projects, right!

Image may contain: text

My projects today do have purses and poppies.  No Paris!  I have to say I'm very excited to share my projects.  It's so easy to make great projects with the products in the January-June Mini Catalog!

Peaceful Poppies class card by Jo Anne Hewins

This is a fun fold card.  Start with a card base of Rich Razzleberry that is 4 1/4 x 11.  Score at 2 3/4 from each end.  Fold in from each end.  The folds become the card front.  You'll need two pieces of Old Olive card stock that is 2 1/2 x 4 and two pieces of the green stripe paper from the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper that measure 2 3/8 x 3 7/8.

Painted Poppies Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

It might be easier to go ahead and stamp the inside of the card.  The saying is from the So Sentimental stamp set and is stamped in Blackberry Bliss.  Stamp the flower from Painted Poppies in Memento Black.  Color in with the Light and Dark Rick Razzleberry Blends and the Light and Dark Old Olive Blends.

Peaceful Poppies Partially Open by Jo Anne Hewins

The front of the card has three strips.  Cut a base of Rich Razzleberry that is 1 x 4.  The designer paper is from the Peaceful Poppies DSP.  It measures 7/8 x 3 7/8.  Remember that you will need three of each of these.

After adhering the layers, place them on your card to see where they need to go.  You do want space between each strip.  Now glue the top and the bottom.   These will be on the left of the card.  YOU WILL ONLY GLUE HALF OF THESE!  Do not put glue where the strips extend beyond the card.  Now glue the middle piece to the right of the card with equal space between the other two strips.  Again, you will only glue the half of the strip that is on the card.

Painted Poppies Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

The flower is cut using the Poppy Moments dies.  Use Rich Razzleberry, Blackberry Bliss, Old Olive, Mossy Meadow, and Purple Posy card stock for this flower.  I made three of the leaves.

Close the card and figure out the placement of the flower.  Make sure the leaves don't hang off the card.  I did go ahead and attach the leaves to the back of the flower.  Actually, attach only the two leaves on the right.  You will glue the flower only on the strips that reach over the right of the card.  The third leaf goes on the middle strip so that it looks like the leaf is behind the flower when the card is closed.

The sentiment is from the So Sentimental stamp set and cut using the Stitched So Sweetly dies.  These to come as a bundle!  The saying is stamped in Blackberry Bliss on Whisper White card stock.

I'm not sure this makes a lot of sense so I'll add a video to help you out.

Best Dressed Dies for OSAT by Jo Anne Hewins

Here is my purse made using the All Dressed Up dies.  You will need to cut out two of these images.  Make sure they are facing in the same direction.  I used the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper green paper.  Use a bone folder to crease the fold lines.  Some of the lines are between two stitched lines.  Be sure you fold on the correct line.  Adhere using Tear & Tape.  The bottom flap does not go all the way to the edge.  Put the Tear & Tape on the flap itself.

Decorate with strips from the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper.  These were strips that I had left over.  They are about 3/8" wide.  Trim even with the fold of the purse.  I also added handles for my purse from the same paper.  Attach with glue dots on the inside of the purse.

Add another flower.  I used the smaller flower from the Poppy Moments dies and two of the leaves.  Use the same color card stock as in the card.  Adhere with dimensionals.  The saying is from Forever Blossoms stamp set and cut out with the Stitched So Sweetly dies.  

And what goes inside?  I emptied a pouch of York Minis into a 3 x 6 Gusseted Cellophane Bag and tied it with the Mossy Meadow twine from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack and some Linen Thread.

A Sampler or a Scrapbook Page?

On the Scrap & Paper Caribbean Cruise with Jennifer Gulch, we made a great sampler.  It could also be a scrapbook page.  I guess it's up to you.  For me, it will be a sampler.

Night Before Christmas Sampler Pic

It's not in a frame.  It's too hard to make a picture with the glare of the glass.  This sampler features the Night Before Christmas Memories & More Card Pack.  While this sampler may look very involved, it really isn't using the card pack.  There is some fussy cutting and some trimmer cutting, but it's mainly just placement.  We added in some Sparkle Glimmer Paper, Linen Thread, Jingle Bells, and the Cherry Cobbler Diagonal Stripe Ribbon.  There is also a Pearlized Doily.  The Cherry Cobbler background is a 12 x 12 piece.

Here are some pictures of each corner.

I have a sampler for you today!  The frame came from Ikea several years ago and measures 9 x 9.  It is a shadow box.

Christmas Sampler 2019 in Frame by Jo Anne Hewins

It's just hard to take a picture of something in glass, so here it is without the frame.

Christmas Sampler 2019 by Jo Anne Hewins

I'm really proud of how this turned out!  The background is built on a piece of card board.  I used the thick backing from some of our specialty papers cut to size.  The background paper is from the Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Cut it to 9 x 9 and glue to the card board.

Let's go one by one on how to make each square.  The squares are all cut using the second largest square from the Stitched Shapes dies.  The scallop squares are cut from the Layering Squares dies.  All are adhered to the background with dimensionals and to each other with dimensionals.

Christmas Sampler Snow Globe Scenes dies church by Jo Anne Hewins

The square is Night of Navy card stock and the scallop square is Pool Party.  Using the Snow Globe Scenes dies, cut the trees (2 of them) from Sparkle Glimmer Paper.  Cut the church from Whisper White card stock and line on the back with Copper Foil.  Add everything with dimensionals.  Add a star from the Star Design Elements.

Christmas Sampler Christmas Gleaming by Jo Anne Hewins

The square is from the Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper.  The scallop square is Garden Green.  Stamp two of the holly leaves in Memento Black ink on Whisper White.  These come from the Christmas Gleaming stamp set.  Paint the leaves with ink in the lid of your Real Red ink pad or Garden Green ink pad.  Use your Wink of Stella Brush.  Fussy cut and add with dimensionals to the square.  Tie a bow with Linen Thread and add in two Jingle Bells.

Christmas Sampler Playful Penguins by Jo Anne Hewins

The square is Whisper White run through the Brick & Mortar Embossing Folder.  Stamp with the snowflake stamp in Pool Party.  This stamp is in Snowman Season.  Snow was added to the bottom of the square with the Snowfall Accents Puff Paint.  The penguin is from the Playful Penguins stamp set.  Stamp in Memento Black ink on white and fussy cut.  Stamp the hat and scarf in Real Red, fussy cut, and add with dimensionals.

Christmas Sampler Snowman Season

The square is from the Let It Snow Specialty paper and the scallop square is Garden Green.  Add snow to the bottom of the square with Snowfall Accents Puff Paint.  Punch the snowman with the Snowman Builder Punch from Whisper White.  Add the face and buttons using the Let It Snow Embellishment Kit.  Use the puff paint around the features on the snowman.  Mount the snowman on dimensionals and add the scarf and hat from the embellishment kit.  Add the arms, too.

The Merry Christmas is from the Christmas Gleaming stamp set.  Stamp in Real Red on Whisper White.  Cut with the Rectangle Stitched dies.  Add with 2 layers of dimensionals.  Add a star from the Star Design Elements.

Christmas Sampler Snow Globe Scenes dies bear by Jo Anne Hewins

The square is in Pool Party and the scallop square is Garden Green.  Cut two sets of trees from the Snow Globe Scenes dies in Garden Green.  Sponge around with Garden Green.  The bears are cut from Soft Suede and sponged.  Add everything with dimensionals except the first set of trees.  Add snowflakes from the Snowflake Sequins and a star from Star Design Elements.

Christmas Sampler Merry Moose by Jo Anne Hewins

The square is from the Let It Snow Specialty paper.  Stamp the moose in Memento Black ink on Whisper White.  Color with the Light and Dark Crumb Cake Blends.  Use the Moose Punch to punch it out.  Add with dimensionals.  Stamp the hat in memento and the scarf in Real Red.  Fussy cut and add to the moose.  The stamp set used is Merry Moose.  Add snowflakes from the Snowflake Sequins.

Christmas Sampler In the Woods dies by Jo Anne Hewins

The background paper for this rectangle is from the Let It Snow Specialty paper.  Cut it out with the Rectangle Stitched Shapes.  Cut the next larger rectangle in Night of Navy.  The tree is cut from the In the Woods dies.  Cut the tree base and the tree again with the cut outs.  Both are in Garden Green.  Pull out the cut outs and apply Shimmery White Embossing Paste.  Add this using your Palette Knives and clean up everything quickly so the paste does not dry and mess up your utensils.  Allow the paste to dry on the tree.  Add Red Rhinestones and a star from the Star Design Elements.

Christmas Sampler Snow Front by Jo Anne Hewins

The square is from the Let It Snow Specialty paper.  The scallop square is Pool Party.  Stamp two of the trees from Snow Front in Early Espresso.  Cut a Whisper White square and cut off the bottom for the snow.  Stamp the deer from Snow Front in Early Espresso.  Stamp the cottage in Soft Suede and fussy cut.  Add with dimensionals.
