Cards - All Occasions

Using Scraps, Samples and a Video!

If you are a paper crafter, you have scraps.  It's hard to know what to keep and what to throw away.  I've been accused of keeping those too small papers and it's true.  Today we are going to talk about using our scraps to make beautiful cards.  If this topic interests you, I also had a post about scraps on Friday.  It has a Facebook Live with it.  Find it here.  I also have a video for you today.  Here are the cards we are going to make.

Using You Scraps  Scrappy Strips  Foam Adhesive Sheet  Embossing  Banners  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

I'm going to go ahead and post the video now and then I'll take each card and tell measurements and details.

 

Here is the first card.

Using Your Scraps  Ornate Thanks  Tasteful Texture EF  Foam Adhesive Sheet  Evening Evergreen Ribbon  2021-2023 In Color Jewels  Luv 2 Create  Jo Anne Hewins

This card has a base of Evening Evergreen 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded on 4 1/4.  The Basic White layer measures 3 3/4 x 5.  Run it through the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder to add some interests.

Cut a piece of the Foam Adhesive Sheets that measures 2 1/4 x 3 5/8 and add to the white layer.  Add 1/2 x 3 1/2 of Evening Evergreen, Soft Sea Foam, and Soft Succulent.  Trim if any extends over the white layer.

The sentiment is on a piece of Basic White that measures 1 1/2 x 3 3/4.  Stamp the sayings from Ornate Thanks in Evening Evergreen.  Glue to the card.  

Add Evening Evergreen Ribbon around this layer and tie in a knot in the front.

Add 2021-2023 In Color Jewels.

Add the layer to the base.

Using Scraps  Cutest Halloween Bundle  Cutest Halloween  Halloween Punch  Black and White Gingham Ribbon  Cute Halloween DSP  Luv 2 Create  Jo Anne Hewins

The next card has a base of Thick Basic White.  Draw a line with pencil about 3/4 inches down from the top.  Use this to place the banners.

Use the Cute Halloween 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper.  Each strip is 1 inch wide.  Cut the lengths at 2 1/2, 2 3/4, and 3.  Use the Banners Pick a Punch make the strips into banners.   Glue the banners across the card varying the lengths.  Trim any excess  paper away.  

Tie the Black and White Gingham Ribbon around the card and tie into a bow.

The saying is from the Cutest Halloween stamp set.  Stamp in Memento Black.  Cut apart the saying and glue.  Use the Halloween Punch to punch out the jack-0-'lantern from the Cute Halloween DSP.  The Cutest Halloween bundle includes the stamp set and punch for a 10% discount.

Using Your Scraps  Inspiring Thoughts  Tailor Made Tags  Linen Thread  Nature's Meadow DSP  Luv 2 Create  Jo Anne Hewins

This card is a fun fold.  The backing is Thick Basic White that measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  The card part is also Thick Basic White.  It measures 2 1/2 x 11, score and fold at 5 1/2.

Use the Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper for this card.

The scraps for the side are 5 3/8 long and wide enough to hide under the card that you'll attach.

For the front of the small card, cover first with Adhesive Sheets.  My strips for the front were 1 1/4 x 3.  Cut them at the diagonal.  Pay attention to directionality if needed.  Add the strips and trim around if needed.

The tags are cut using the Tailor Made Tags dies.  The saying, stamped in Misty Moonlight, is from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set.  

Tie a bow of Linen Thread and add to the hole in the tags with a glue dot.

Glue the card to the base.

Facebook Live 10.6.2021 Using Your Scraps to Make Beautiful Cards

Well, hello!  I'm so glad you are here today.  This video will show you how to make beautiful cards with all those scraps you have hanging around.  I used a lot of different stamp sets, dies, and embellishments for these cards, but they are basically simple.  You'll be able to use supplies you already have.  Maybe you'll see something that you would like to add to your stamping collection.

I'm going to go ahead and add the video here.  Then I'll go over each card.

 

For the first card, I used a base of Thick Basic White measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  Score and fold at 4 1/4.  The next layer is Basic White 4 x 5 1/4.  The Pale Papaya piece is 1 1/2 x 4.  I used the Macrame Embossing Folder.

The other pieces of card stock are 1 x 4.  I trimmed away the excess.  Use Calypso Coral and Poppy Parade.  Embossing Folders used are Parisian Flourish, Timeworn Type, Ornate Floral, and Meadow Moments.  Of course any folders can be used.  Tie with White Crinkled Seam Binding.  The tag is from the Tailor Made Tags dies.  The little flowers are from the Pierced Blooms dies.  The Adhesive Sheets make this project easy.  Add to the 4 x 5 1/4 layer of Basic White.  The saying is from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set.

The label is cut from the Encircled in Beauty dies.  The saying is from Welcoming Woods.  I used the Fresh Freesia In Color Ribbon.  

Finish off the card with 2021-2023 In Color Jewels.

This card has a base of Highland Heather the same size as the other two cards.  The Basic White layer is 3 3/4 x 5.  Don't forget to used the Adhesive Sheets to fit this layer. 

For this card I used strips of the Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper.  They are close to 1/2 inch wide.  I showed a different pattern of adding the strips.

I used the Tasteful Labels dies for the saying.  The ribbon is from the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack.  I also used the 2021-2023 In Color Jewels.  The saying is from Inspired Thoughts.

I hope this video gave you some ideas for using those strips of scraps.  I'll have another video and more ideas for using scraps on Monday, October 11th.  I hope you'll join me then.

Color Fusers Blog Hop for October 2021

Welcome to the Color Fusers Blog Hop for October of 2021.  We are using the colors Just Jade, Evening Evergreen, and Cajun Craze.

These colors are so lovely together.  Here is a picture of my card for this challenge.

Color Fusers October Mini Daisy Punch  Scalloped Contours dies  Forever Flourishing dies  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

My base is Evening Evergreen measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folding at 4 1/4.

The next layer is Just Jade.  Cut this out with the largest rectangle die in the Scalloped Contours dies.  Now run it through the Cut & Emboss Machine with the Stitched Greenery die.  I love that die so much!  Glue to the center of the card front.

The next layer is Basic White.  It's also cut using the Scalloped Contours dies.  Use the third largest rectangle.  This will be added after decoration with dimensionals.

For each daisy, you will need three of the Medium Daisy punch outs in Cajun Craze.  Curl the petals up on two of them with your bone folder and curl the petals on the other down.  Add with glue dots with petals askew:  one curled up, one curled down, and the last curled up.  The center is from the Pierced Blooms dies.  It cuts two of these at a time.  Use a Blending Brush and Cajun Craze ink to color these a little darker.  The leaves are cut from the Forever Flourishing dies.  Cut it apart in the middle and attach again so that more of the greenery show.  The leaves are in Evening Evergreen.  Glue into opposite corners of the white layer.  Let me tell you now that there is another flower inside the card.  Just make them all at once!

The sentiment is from the Peaceful Cabin stamp set.  Stamp in Just Jade.  Cut it out using the Harvest dies.  Add a piece of the Just Jade gingham ribbon from the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack.  Now add the saying with dimensionals.

As I look at my card now the white layer is not straight.  It should be!

Here is the inside of the card.  The saying, stamped in Evening Evergreen, is from also from the Peaceful Cabin stamp set.  Add the flower.

Facebook Live 9.29.2021 Two Fall Latch Fun Fold Cards

We made 2 great Latch Fun Fold cards on my Facebook Live on Wednesday.  Both are great for fall.  I think you'll like them.  I've got the video to post and all the measurements.  Here are the cards.

Facebook Live 9.29.2021 Beauty of the Earth DSP  Beauty of Friendship bundle  Beautiful Trees dies  Latch Card Fun Fold  Love of Leaves  Wink of Stella  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

So I'm going to put the video here.  

 

We made the card on the right first. For the cards I'll put the measurements and supplies used.

Facebook Live 9.29.2021 Love of Leaves  Layering Circles dies  Wink of Stella  Latch Fun Fold Card  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

Cajun Craze is the base of this one.  You'll need one that measures 5 1/2 x 6 1/2 and score at 4 1/4.  The other Cajun Craze piece measures 3 1/4 x 3 1/2.  Score this at 1/2 on the shorter side.

Measurements for the Basic White card stock are 2 1/8 x 5 3/8, 2 5/8 x 3 3/8, and 4 1/8 x 5 3/8.

I used the Love of Leaves and the Quiet Meadow stamp sets.  Colors used are Cajun Craze, Merry Merlot, Old Olive, Crushed Curry, and Soft Suede.

The circles were made using the Layering Circles dies.  Embellishments are made with Wink of Stella and the Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon.

The latch part comes when the layer on the right fits under the circle label and over the left fold.

Here's the inside of the card.

The second card we made had a base of Early Espresso.  The first piece is 5 1/2 x 6 1/2, score at 4 1/4.  The second piece is 3 1/2 x 4 1/2, score on the 3 1/2 inch side at 1/2.

I used the Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper for this card.  Measurements are 2 1/8 x 5 3/8 for one and 2 7/8 x 4 3/8 for the other using the multicolor fall paper.  I also used the sky paper for the inside of the card.  It measures 4 1/8 x 5 3/8.  I like a thin border around my card.  If you want to get more use of your DSP, then you might want to lower all the measurements by 1/8.

I used the tree from the Beautiful Trees dies.  You'll need two of them.  Cut from Early Espresso.  Put some of the Adhesive Sheets on the back of the card stock.  This will turn your trees into stickers.

Use the Layering Circles dies for the circles.  The sentiment is from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set.

For the inside of the card, use the Happiest of Birthdays stamp set.  Place the stamp on the Stamparatus to make sure you get a dark image.

Use the video for the directions.

I think this should give you what you need to know.  You can adjust the latch part of the card to the design you want to use.  On the second card I adjusted the size to fit my tree.

I appreciate you stopping by today.  Could you subscribe to my YouTube channel if you haven't already.  My goal is to get to 1000!  I'm getting closer!

Harvest and Meadow Dies Unite for a Color Challenge

Welcome to the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #684.  This week we have a color challenge using Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, and any color we wish.  I have chosen to use Misty Moonlight.

CCMC684

And here is my card.

CCMC #684 Timeworn Type EF  Blending Brushes  Meadow dies  Harvest dies  Vellum  Hydrangea dies  Jo Anne Hewins

This is a collage card using bits and pieces that come together to form something fantastic.  I do love how this came together.

My card base is Misty Moonlight 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  

Next is a layer of Crumb Cake cut to 4 1/8 x 5 3/8.  Run this through the Cut & Emboss Machine with the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder.  With a Blending Brush add Early Espresso ink over this layer to bring out some of the embossing.  This folder is so pretty.

For the elements of the card, the Early Espresso branches (2) and the flower in the Harvest Meadow Designer Series are Paper are from the Harvest Dies.  For the flower, cut from the Misty Moonlight designer paper.  With the Blending Brush add Early Espresso ink around the edges of the flower.  Cut again the center of the flower from Crumb Cake.  Cut around the bottom of the center and add some espresso ink all around it.  Glue to the designer flower.

The Misty Moonlight flower is from the Meadow dies.  I did add just a little of the Early Espresso ink that was already on the Blending Brush.  The frond cut from Vellum Card Stock is also from the Meadow dies.  Turn it on the back and color with a Blending Brush and Misty Moonlight ink.

CCMC #684 Timeworn Type EF  Blending Brushes  Meadow Dies  Harvest dies  Vellum  Hydrangea dies  Close Up  by Jo Anne Hewins

Take your pieces and play with them until you are happy with their placement.  Add to the card.  It might help to take a picture of the card first so you remember how you had it.  It would also be helpful to add Adhesive Sheets to the back of your papers before cutting.  This would turn your cutouts into stickers.  Super easy!

Tie a bow from Linen Thread.  I used a bow maker for mine.  It's the first time I used it with so many layers of thread.  I thought it worked well.  Add the bow with a glue dot.

The word hello is from the Love of Leaves stamp set.  Stamp on a scrap of Basic White in Early Espresso.  Use the Hydrangea dies to cut out the tag.  I added some of the Early Espresso Faux Suede Trim to the back of the tag to hang out at the end.  I tied a knot with the same trim and added it over the hole with a glue dot.

CCMC #684 Timeworn Type EF  Blending Brushes  Meadow dies  Harvest dies  Vellum  Hydrangea dies  Inside of Card  Jo Anne Hewins

For the inside of the card, add some Early Espresso ink with the Blending Brush lightly around the edges of the Basic White.  The saying is from Love of Leaves in espresso.  Cut the flower for the inside just the same as the flower on the front.

CCMC #684 Timeworn Type EF  Blending Brushes  Meadow dies  Harvest dies  Vellum  Hydrangea dies   Linen Thread  Card Project   Jo Anne Hewins  shown with EF and Blending Brush and Early Espresso Pad

These cards have a way of looking difficult.  Just take it one step at a time.  You can do it too.

Thanks for visiting my blog today.  I hope you found having all the directions are helpful.
