Cards - All Occasions

Casing the August-December Catalog to Get New Ideas Facebook Live

Happy day to you.  My Facebook Live was delayed a few days, but I was able to get it in.  We made three cards using the August-December catalog for inspiration.  If you are ever stumped when you want to make a card, our catalogs are filled with wonderful ideas!  Here are the cards we made.

Facebook Live November 27th 2020 by Jo Anne Hewins

The first card I made was cased from a card on page 49 of the catalog.  It showed a beautiful card made using the Love of Leaves bundle.

Snowflake Splendor by Jo Anne Hewins

I used the same layout but different products.  The paper is Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper, the stamp set Snowflake Wishes and the die cut is from the Celebrations Labels dies.  I also used the Snowflake Splendor ribbon and the Banners Pick a Punch.  

Base:  Thick Whisper White 4 1/2 x 11, scored at 5 1/2.  

Designer Paper:  4 1/2 x 5 1/2

Highland Heather: 3 1/2 x 4 3/4

Banner:  Whisper White 1 x 4 1/4

Dove of Hope with Poinsettia Place by Jo Anne Hewins

This card used a card on page 14 for inspiration.  I loved the Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper used with the Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper.  I took those elements and went with it using the Dove of Hope bundle.  There are some tips about cutting the plush paper on the video.  

Base: Thick Whisper White 4 1/4 x 11, score at 5 1/2

Plush Poinsettia Specialty:  3 3/8 x 4 3/4, approximately

In the Pines with Poinsettia Place by Jo Anne Hewins

This card was cased from a card on page 43.  I stuck to the card in some ways, but substituted some supplies that I did not have.

Base:  Soft Suede 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, folded at 4 1/4

Poinsettia Place DSP:  3 3/4 x 5

Here is the Facebook Live for tips and tricks.  I'm giving away the cards made during the Live.  Just comment and I will pick a random winner.

 

Thanks so much for joining me.  I'm trying to do these Lives on Wednesdays at 4:00 ET.  Thanks for joining me!

Prized Peony Sympathy Card

FB_IMG_1606276450382

It's a hard fact to face, but sometimes we need sympathy cards.  That's what I have for you today.  I'm using the Prized Peony stamp set.  It's an easy card today.  Let's face it making a sympathy card is not that fun.  You have to think of the comfort it might lend to those receiving it.  Of course this card can lend itself for any occasion just by changing the sentiment.

Prized Peony Sympathy Card by Jo Anne Hewins

The card base is Early Espresso that is 4 1/4 x 11, scored and folded at 5 1/2.

The next layer is Whisper White.  It is cut to 3 7/8 x 5 1/8.

The next layer just makes the card.  You might be surprised to find out that this pattern is from the Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper!  Cut the layer to 3 3/4 x 5.  Stamp the large peony on this layer in Early Espresso.  To be sure that your image is perfect, I suggest that you line up the stamp on the Stamparatus.  That way you can stamp again if needed.

Use Pool Party ink and a sponge dauber to add just a little extra color to the flower and flower bud.  Use Mint Macaron ink and a dauber to add a little color to the leaves.  This won't be perfect, but it isn't meant to be.

Prized Peony Sympathy Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

Tie a length of the Pool Party Sheer Ribbon around the card and tie a bow.  I like to place a glue dot under the first tie.  It holds the ribbon in place so you can finish tying the bow.

The saying is from the Prized Peony stamp set.  Stamp in Early Espresso.  Cut out using the Ornate Frames dies.  Add to the card with dimensionals.

Add some of the Elegant Faceted Gems to complete the card.

Prized Peony Sympathy Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

The saying for the inside is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set.  Stamp the flower again and adding just a little color as you did to the front.

Prized Peony Sympathy Project by Jo Anne Hewins

And there you go.  It's a lovely card.

I thank you for your time today.  Have a beautiful day and I hope that you have some time to stamp.  It will make you happy.  It's my happy place!

Welcome to the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge # 639.  Today we have a sketch.

CCMC639

I have another simple card today using the Flowering Blooms bundle and the Peony Garden Designer Series Paper.

The card base is Thick Whisper White cut to 4 1/4 x 11, score and fold at 5 1/2.  Cut the Gray Granite piece of the Peony Garden Designer Series Paper the same size as the card front, 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  Glue to the front of the card.

The Petal Pink patterned paper is cut to 2 x 4 3/4.  Center from top to bottom, but add just a little to the right of the front.  

Stamp the flower from Flowering Blooms in Gray Granite ink on Whisper White.  Color in with the Petal Pink Combo and the Soft Sea Foam Combo of blends.  Cut out using the largest circle from the Layering Circles dies.  Now run it through the Die Cut & Emboss Machine using the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder.  Glue to the card in the center of the pink piece.

CCMC #639 Flowering Blooms Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

Stamp the saying from Flowering Blooms in Gray Granite ink on white.  Trim around it.  Cut a piece of Soft Sea Foam card stock 1/4 x 2 1/8.  Add to the card.  Add the saying with dimensionals.  Finish the card with some of the Elegant Faceted Gems.  So pretty!

Celebrate Sunflowers and Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper

Today I have a card using the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set and the Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper.  I've chosen to use some colors that lend themselves to this fall season.

Celebrate Sunflowers Pic by Jo Anne Hewins

I think it's quite pretty and it's easy.  The base is Cinnamon Cider measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  Stamp over the card front with the large sunflower stamp from Celebrating Sunflowers.

Cut paper from the Flowers for Every Season 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper.  The center piece is cut to 1 x 4 1/4.  The other 2 designer papers are cut to 1 1/4 x 3 1/4.

Glue down the center piece.  I use my Grid Paper to help me get the paper straight on the card.  Add the next 2 papers on dimensionals centered over the piece already added.

Celebrate Sunflowers Close UP by Jo Anne Hewins

Stamp the saying from Celebrate Sunflowers on yet another pattern from Flowers for Every Season.  Punch out with the 2 inch circle punch.  Glue to the layers.  You could add a dimensional in the center of the circle.

Glue dot a bow made from the Bumblebee Ribbon and add some of the 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots.

Celebrate Sunflowers Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

Just stamp the saying and a sunflower in Cinnamon Cider on the inside.
