One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop for November - Winter Festival

Welcome to the One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop for November.  Out theme this month is Winter Festival.  

Image may contain: text

Christmas is my winter holiday of choice.  I will say that changing the sentiment could make this card for any occasion.  I'll be using the Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack to make beautiful flowers!  I'll start with the card.

OSAT for November Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack Card by Jo Anne Hewins

Start with a card base of Thick Whisper White measuring 4 1/4 x 11.  Score and fold at 5 1/2.

Using the Wrapped in Plaid 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper stack, cut a piece of the Shaded Spruce dots to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  Glue to the card front.  

Use your Embossing Buddy on the lower right corner of the card.  Using Versamark, stamp the saying from Perfectly Plaid.  Emboss with Gold Emboss Powder and the Heat Tool.

Cut a piece of Gold Foil Sheets to 1 1/4 x 4 1/4.  Add to the center a strip of the Wrapped in Plaid paper that is 1 1/8 x 4 1/4.  Add this on the lower half of the card above the sentiment.

To make the flower for the card you will need a 1 1/2" circle of Cherry Cobbler.  Use the smaller punch from the Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack.  Punch 8 of the Cherry Cobbler and 3 of the Shaded Spruce ornaments.  Attach four of the cherry ornaments around the outer part of the circle and 4 more around the inner part of the circle.  Arrange the second layer so that the petals are between the first petals.  I used a glue gun.  Now spritz the flower with water and a Stampin' Spritzer.  Crush the flower in several directions and then arrange it how you like.  Allow to dry.  Spritz and crush the spruce ornaments.  These can be glued on after all is dry.  Add a large Gold Faceted Gem in the center.  Sponge the flower with a dauber and the Delicata Golden Glitz ink.  Add to the card with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  

Add a few more gems on the card.

I couldn't resist adding a little more of the Golden Glitz ink on the card front.  Who doesn't like a little more shine!

OSAT for November Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack Gold Pizza Box by Jo Anne Hewins

Here is my Gold Mini Pizza Box decorated to go with my card.  They make a great pair.

For this the top of the box is covered with the Shaded Spruce dots paper from Wrapped in Plaid.  This measures 3 1/4 x 3 1/4.  The Gold Foil is 1 1/8 x 3 1/4.  The plaid paper is 1 x 3 1/4.  Add this across the center of the lid.

This flower is a little larger, but made the same way.  I used 10 of the cherry ornaments, 6 around the outer part of the circle and 4 to the inside.  I still used three of the spruce ornaments for the leaves.

For the tag, stamp the saying from Itty Bitty Christmas in Cherry Cobbler on a Whisper White scrap.  Cut out using the Mini Curvy Keepsake Box Dies.  Add with a glue dot to the lid of the box.  Add a ribbon of Linen Thread with a glue dot.

I will fill my box with some Hershey nuggets.  Wrap a strip of 1 x 3 Wrapped in Plaid papers around them to decorate.  That will have to wait until I get to the store, though.

Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #585 Sweet Silhouettes

HAPPY HALLOWEEN and welcome to the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #585.  Today our color challenge uses Terracotta Tile, Pumpkin Pie, and Basic Black.

CCMC585

I decided these colors made me think of a sunset.  I used the Sweet Silhouettes dies as my focal point on the card.

CCMC#585 Serene Silhouettes by Jo Anne Hewins

The card base is Basic Black measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  The next layer is Terracotta Tile.  It is cut to 3 3/4 x 5.  The next layer is Whisper White.  It measures 3 1/2 x 4 3/4.

The Basic Black layer, cut at 3 3/8 x 4 5/8. 

The final layer is of Watercolor Paper.  It is just a little smaller than the black layer with 3 1/4 x 4 5/8 as its measurements.  Wet this paper well with your Aqua Painter.  Alternately add Terracotta Tile color and Pumpkin Pie color.  I got ink in the lid of the ink pads for this.  Just squeeze the top and bottom together.  Let this dry.  Scrap around the edges of this layer with the blade of your scissor.

Cut three dandelions from Basic Black cardstock using the Sweet Silhouettes dies.  Add to the front of the card carefully adding glue.  Stamp the word hello from To a Wild Rose in black.  After stamping, I wished I had used the Stamparatus so I could get a good dark word.  I did go back with my Basic Black Stampin Write Marker over my word.

Tie some of the Glittered Organdy Ribbon around the card and tie in a knot.  Add to the black layer.

Add the black layer to the card with dimensionals.

Add another dandelion to the inside of the card.  The saying again is from the To a Wild Rose stamp set.

October SATW 3

Today is the last day for the October Stamping Around the World Tutorial.  I'll send you this tutorial for free with any purchase today!  (I'm on vacation, so it will be later next week!)

Capture the Good

I just got the Capture the Good stamp set.  It's in the annual catalog on page 142, and has everything you need for a camera focus.  With all of the holidays coming up, I can "picture" the images in this set being used a lot in scrapbooks.  I have a card for you today.

Capture the Good by Jo Anne Hewins

Start with a card base of Basic Black measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  The Whisper White layer is cut to 4 1/8 x 5 3/8.  There is just a tiny layer of the black showing.  

Stamp the camera over the white layer.  I used the brand new Delicata Silvery Shimmer ink.  It's been out of stock, but it's back.  This ink is simply beautiful.  It's dries quickly, but not immediately.  It's shows up great on the white.

Stamp the camera again in Versamark on Basic Black paper.  Emboss the camera with Silver Emboss Powder and your Heat Tool.  Fussy cut the camera.

Run the Glittered Organdy Ribbon around the white layer and tie in a bow to the left of the card.

Capture the Good close up by Jo Anne Hewins

Add the camera with dimensionals.  Stamp the the heart image in Memento Black.  Color in the heart with a Dark Real Red Blend.  Fussy cut around the circle and glue to the lens of the camera.

Add the word Smile in Real Red ink.

Capture the Good Inside of Card by Jo Anne Hewins

Here is the inside of my card.  Stamp the camera down in the right corner in Memento Black.  Stamp this again on a sticky note , making sure that part of the image is on the sticky part.  Cut this one out to make a mask.  Stick down the mask.  Note stamp the words in Real Red ink around the camera.  This makes it appear that the camera is in front of the words.

Add the other saying in Memento Black.

Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #584 Parcels & Petals

Hello to you today.  Welcome to the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.  Today we have a sketch.

CCMC584

I decided to use the Parcels & Petals bundle.  It has the Parcels & Petals stamp set and the Perfect Parcel dies.

CCMC #584 Parcels & Petals Card by Jo Anne Hewins

Start with a card base of Seaside Spray that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  Stamp the card front with the largest stamp  Stamp off first.  Now, mine is not really straight on the card, but I don't think that matters that much.

Using the Stitched Nested Labels dies cut out the hexagon from Pear Pizzazz cardstock.  Now cut the design from the inside using the Perfect Parcels dies.  There are two dies.  One cuts the inside of the design and the other cuts the outside.  You can place them one inside the other to cut both at once.  Glue down the hexagon to the base.   After getting out all of the pieces, I glued the design back inside.  I like the way this looks.

CCMC #584 Parcels & Petals Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

Along the bottom portion of the card, run a length of the Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon.  I glue dotted the end under where my flowers would be and ran it around and glue dotted the other end.

For the trio of flowers stamp on So Saffron in So Saffron ink.  There will be a total of 5 flowers needed.  These will need to be fussy cut.  Take your Bone Folder and curl the petals a little.  The center for the flowers is a stamp from the Beauty & Joy stamp set.  The stamp has a cluster of three stamps.  I just inked one of the clusters.  Layer the flowers in groups of two with a mini dimensional between.  Add the flowers to the card with glue dots.

Cut another of the designs from the Perfect Parcels dies.  Trim the little leaves and add them among the flowers.

The saying, in Early Espresso, is from the Beauty & Joy stamp set.

CCMC #584 Parcels & Petals Inside of Card by Jo Anne Hewins

For the inside of the card, stamp a row of the detailed stamp across the bottom in stamped off Seaside Spray.  Stamp the trio of flowers punch once again in So Saffron on the same color paper.  Add the centers in Early Espresso from Beauty & Joy.  Cut these out and add to the card with glue dots.  I added another leaf because I had one left over.   The saying is from Beauty & Joy in espresso.

Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge # 583 To a Wild Rose

It's Thursday!  Time for another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.  This week we have a color challenge.

CCMC583

I am using the To a Wild Rose stamps set for this challenge.

CCMC#583 To a wild Rose by Jo Anne Hewins

Start with Thick Whisper White cut to 4 1/4 x 11.  Score at 5 1/2 and fold.  Burnish with your Bone Folder.

Add a piece of the Pretty Peacock gingham check from the 2019-2021 In Color Designer Series Paper.  This is cut to 1 1/2 x 4 1/4.  Glue to the lower half of the card front.

The large flower in the To a Wild Rose stamp set can be a 3 part stamp process.  I have a video showing how I stamped the flowers for this card.  Stamp on Whisper White.  I'll tell you the process, but the video might add some clarity.  Stamp 3 flowers.

1)  Stamp the outline of the rose in Pretty Peacock ink.

2)  Stamp the most solid stamp in stamped off Bermuda Bay ink.

3)  Stamp the detailed stamp in stamped off Pretty Peacock.

You can match the parts of this flower.  I do explain in the video.  Find a part of the flower that you see in each stamp.  Adhere the stamps so that part is in the same place for each stamp.  This will help you match.  Here is the video.

 

Fussy cut out two of the flowers for the front of the card.  Cut out the third for the inside of the card.  Add about three glue dots to the center of the cards for the front.  Add dimensionals around the outside of the flowers.  Attach to the cards.  Hint:  There are dies called Wild Rose dies.  I even have them.  Somehow I forgot about them.

CCMC #583 To a Wild Rose Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

The leaves for these flowers are made using the Gathered Leaves dies.  Spritz the Old Olive cardstock and send the three leaf dies through your die cutting machine.  Do these 2 times for a total of 6 leaves.  Let dry.  Add some of the leaves with dimensionals and some with glue.  One of the leaves goes inside.

The saying, in Pretty Peacock, is from the To a Wild Rose stamp set.

CCMC #583 To a Wild Rose Inside of Card by Jo Anne Hewins

Here is the inside of my card.  The saying is from To a Wild Rose.
