I have a fancy fold card for you.  I'm not sure what it is called.  I'll just say a Reverse Z Fold Insert card.  I have a video at the end of the post that might show you better how to make it.  My card features the Birds and Branches bundle that contains the stamp set and the Birds & More dies.

OSAT Birds and Branches Tucked Z Fold by Jo Anne Hewins

The card base is a 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 piece of Soft Suede card stock.  Fold at 4 1/4.  The first layer is Whisper White that measures 4 x 5 1/4.  The patterned paper is from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper.  It's cut to 3 7/8 x 5 1/8.  Glue these layers to the card front just along the top.  This is because we want to save the individual layers of circles that we'll be cutting out.  For this card, we'll need the white circle.

Using the second largest circle from the Stitched Shapes dies, cut a circle from the center, or just a little above, of the front of the card.  Be sure to send the card through your machine open.  I had to past through a couple time since we are cutting through 3 layers of paper.

After cutting the circles out, go ahead and glue down the layers on the front the rest of the way.

The inside of the card is Whisper White that is 5 1/4 x 8.  Score at 4 and 6.  Fold this so that the large portion is glued to the inside and the other sections fold back and forward to make a Z.  Use a bone folder to burnish the folds and make sure it all folds straight.

OSAT Birds and Branches Tucked Z Fold Close Up of Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

With the card folded shut, you'll see the folded part through the circle on the front.  Put glue on this folded part just on the what you see through the circle.  Add the white circle right through the front.  Half of the circle will adhere and the rest will not.

To decorate the circle, cut three of the stems from Just Jade card stock.  These are from the Birds & More dies.  You use one inside on the circle and the others will go on the front.  Glue one stem across the circle angling up toward the right.  Stamp the nest in Soft Suede on Whisper White 2 times and cut.  One goes inside on the circle and one on the front.  Stamp the bird in Early Espresso.  Color in using the Light Smoky Slate Blend and the Light Real Red Blend.  Cut.  Stamp the eggs in Balmy Blue.  The dies will cut out as three separate eggs.  

When gluing the nest only put glue at the top.  Don't glue below the circle or your card will not open.  Leave just enough room at the top of the nest to slip in the bird and eggs.  Check through the front of the card to help with placement.

OSAT Birds and Branches Tucked Z Fold Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

Stamp the saying from Celebrate Sunflowers in Soft Suede.

OSAT Birds and Branches Tucked Z Fold Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

For the front of the card, add the Just Jade stem from near the circle toward the bottom right.  You may need to trim a little from the end, but be careful.  The stems can separate.  Add the nest matching it to the nest inside.  This time glue only the bottom part of the nest.  Do not glue over the circle or your card will not open.

Add the stem to the top.  I tried to make it match the stem from the inside.  This time you will need to cut the stem apart and add.  Trim to be even with the circle.

OSAT Bird Seed Salt Shaker by Jo Anne Hewins

For my 3D item, I used a salt shaker.  Fill with bird seed.  Using the largest scallop circle from the Layering Circles dies, cut from matching designer paper.  Getting this on was the hardest part.  I put a glue dot on top of the shaker and folded down the sides.  I put glue dots inside some of the folds to hold everything.  After getting the Linen Thread tied around in a knot (my husband held it for me), I tied another thread looping it around about three more times and knotted it.

OSAT Bird Seed Salt Shaker from the Top by Jo Anne Hewins

The tag is made from a 2 inch wide piece of Thick Whisper White.  Punch the end with the Delightful Tag Topper Punch.  You will need the nest, eggs, stem of jade, and two birds this time.  Stamp and color the same.  Make sure your birds will face each other.  Add the stem first and then add the nest with dimensionals.  Glue in the birds and eggs.  The saying is from the Lovely You set.  I cut the friend from part of a saying and glued to the nest. 

OSAT Bird Seed Salt Shaker from the Side by Jo Anne Hewins

Trim the tag across the bottom to fit.  

Tie the tag to the shaker.  Frazzle out the ends.  Add a glue dot to hold the tag in place.

Here is a video for you.  Hope it clears everything up!

 

Here are my projects together.  Now, who can I give this to?

NC Demo Blog Hop for May Saying Good Bye to Painted Harvest

Welcome to the NC Demo Blog Hop for May.  We are all about celebrating our retiring products today.  You might have just come from Tracy's blog or you may just be beginning the hop.  Be sure you visit everyone!  You'll get some great ideas!

Join us blog

I'm going to tell you the truth.  It was hard to pull myself away from the new stuff in order to make a post for today.  I will however miss the Painted Harvest stamp set and the Leaf Punch.  I decided to use these to make a pretty quick little home decor piece using these products.  Here's my project.

NC Blog Hop Painted Harvest Frame in Frame by Jo Anne Hewins

I can't seem to make a good picture with the project in the frame without a lot of glare.  Here it is without the frame.

NC Blog Hop Painted Harvest 6 x 6 Frame by Jo Anne Hewins

The frame is a 6 x 6 shadowbox from Michaels.  I've had it for awhile.  It had material and a spongy layer where the picture would go.  I removed that and added a layer is card board backing from a pack of designer paper.  The background for the wreath is from the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper retiring.  Cut a 6 x 6 piece and glue to the backing.

To get my round shape, I got the largest circle from the Layering Circles dies and laid it in the center.  I needed a bigger circle so I put a ring of snail about a half inch out from the circle all around.

The flower is made from three of the flowers from Painted Harvest.  I stamped the more solid stamp in Crushed Curry and the more detailed in Mango Melody.  There's really no need to stamp the center.  All is stamped on Whisper White.  Fussy cut all three flowers.  Adhere all three flowers with a double stack of dimensionals in the center.  Stamp a center in Soft Suede, cut, and add to the top flower.

Spritz everything.  The detail on the flowers will disappear somewhat.  Fold each layer up toward the center separately and let it dry in the up position.  When dry press each layer down a little and arrange it to your liking.

NC Blog Hop Painted Harvest Frame by Jo Anne Hewins

For the leaves I used the Sprig punch, not retiring, in Mossy Meadow and the Leaf punch, retiring, in Old Olive.  Punch a bunch.  I also used Pear Pizzazz and stamped the leaf from the Painted Harvest stamp set in Old Olive in it.  Punch a bunch.

NC Blog Hop Frame Crinkled leaves by Jo Anne Hewins

Crinkle up all of the leaves.

I began adding the Mossy Meadow sprigs all around the snail area all around.  Notice that all of the leaves face in the same direction.  Next I went in and added the Old Olive leaves all around.  I used glue dots to add.  Fold the glue dot so that it doesn't show.  Then fill in with the stamped leaves using glue dots again to add.  For my final step I did add more of the Mossy Meadow sprigs where I felt I needed them.

NC Blog Hop Painted Harvest Close Up of Leaves by Jo Anne Hewins

Add the flower with dimensionals.  

NC Blog Hop Painted Harvest Close Up of Flower by Jo Anne Hewins

NC Blog Hop Painted Harvest Side View of Flower by Jo Anne Hewins

The tag is stamped on white scrap in Soft Suede.  Use the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set.  Cut out with the Bouquet Bunch dies.  These are retiring!  The tag automatically has a hole in it.  Add some Linen Thread and pull it up under the flower and add with a glue dot.  Put another glue dot under the tag.

Tie a box wrapping Linen Thread around three fingers about 4 times and then around two fingers about 4 times.  Pull off fingers and adjust so that the loops are centered.  Tie with more Linen Thread.  Add the bow with a glue dot.

NC Blog Hop Painted Harvest Close Up of Flower by Jo Anne Hewins

That's it.  I think it makes a pretty frame that anyone would love as a gift.

NC Blog Hop Painted Harvest Frame No Frame by Jo Anne Hewins

This might look hard, but it really wasn't.  I ask what will we do without the Leaf punch.  That is so sad.  Luckily, we will have the new Celebrate Sunflowers bundle to help us get over the loss of the Painted Harvest stamp set.  The Beautiful Bouquet and the Bouquet Bunch dies will also be missed greatly.

There's only a few days left to get these retiring products if they are still left!  Order today!  See below.

Next up is Jenn.  I know you don't want to miss anyone on the NC Demo Blog Hop today!

One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop Manly May

Welcome to the One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop for May 2020.  This month we are celebrating men.  I'm so glad you are here.  Be sure to visit all of the blogs on this hop.  You know, Father's Day will be here soon.  You'll get lots of ideas today!

I'm using the Country Club Designer Series Paper from the January-June Mini catalog.  This paper is on the Last Chance List.  It's going away soon!  Here is my card.

OSAT Country Club Birthday Card by Jo Anne Hewins

The card base is Garden Green card stock cut to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.

The next layer is Whisper White measures 4 x 5 1/4.  

The green plaid paper from the Country Club Designer Series Paper is 3 7/8 x 5 1/8.  I did some hinge stamping for the left side of the card using my Stamparatus.  The stamp set is Perennial Birthday.  This stamp set is also retiring.  I just love the bold happy birthday used here.  I will miss it since it is so perfect for masculine cards.  The Stamparatus allows you to go back and stamp again and again if needed to make the words dark.

OSAT Country Club Birthday Card Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

Use the Stitched Nested Labels dies to cut the banner in Garden Green.  Cut another smaller banner from the designer paper and glue onto the larger one.

The saying is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set.  It's actually parts of two of the sayings in the stamp set.  Stamp in Memento Black on Whisper White scraps and then cut the words apart.  Glue to the banner.  I added the banner to the card front first with dimensionals so I would get the words on there straight.

The twine accent is made from the Country Club Twine Combo Pack, also on the Last Chance Product list.  I used the green and the black.  Pull the threads apart and then lay them back together.  Since this twine is a little thicker, I think this helps the thread lay a little flatter.   Tie the twine into knots about every 1 1/2 inches.  Add with glue dots behind the knots.

For my 3D project I'm using the Mini Pizza Box.

OSAT Country Club Mini Pizza Box Top View by Jo Anne Hewins

The top of the box is covered by a 3 1/4 x 3 1/4 piece of the green plaid.  Make the green banner with the smaller plaid banner just as you did for the card.  Stamp the Happy Birthday from the Perennial Birthday stamp set on Whisper White.  Cut this out with the next smallest banner from the Stitched Nested Labels.  The green banners go from corner to corner.  The white label goes across.

Make the knots for each end of the green banner.  Pull apart strands from the twine again and tie in a knot.  Trim to size.  Add with a glue dot.

OSAT Country Club Mini Pizza Box Project by Jo Anne Hewins

The sides of the box are covered with designer paper strips that measure 7/8 x 3 1/4.  Add some of the knotted twine around the box.

OSAT Country Club Card and Mini Pizza Box by Jo Anne Hewins

Here are the two together.  Later I'll fill this box with some Butterfinger nuggets for my husband.  That's his favorite!

I hope you will continue on the hop.  I can't wait to see what everyone has this month!

I do have another post today for the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.  My card there coordinates with these projects.  Go here to check it out.

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!

I enjoy my Bingo events so much.  Most of the people that attend are also demonstrators, but we have a wonderful time together.  Of course customers can and do attend.  I'll have another with the next Annual Catalog.

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.
