One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop for February Sweet Sixteen Birthday

Welcome to the One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop for February.  We are all about birthdays this month!  Yes, the topic says sweet sixteen, but it's really birthdays in general.  You know, we all have one so birthday cards are a must have!

For my project, I'm using the Botanical Prints Product Medley.  You can find this on page 61 of the January-June Mini Catalog.  Here is my card.

OSAT Botanical Prints Card by Jo Anne Hewins

The Botanical Print Product Medley has the Botanical Print stamp set and dies.  It has a pack of 48 pieces of designer paper that is 6 x 6.  It has 8 each of 6 double sided designs.  There are 4 sheets of die-cut accents and 4 sheets of laser-cut overlays.  There are 12 copper colored metal bee embellishments.  There's also a roll of Old Olive Twill Ribbon.  Colors for this kit are Basic Black, Copper, Crushed Curry, Old Olive, Pretty Peacock, Terracotta Tile, and White.

My card has an Old Olive base that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  Stamp around the outside of the front of the card in Old Olive ink using a stamp from Botanical Prints.

Cut the designer series paper using the largest rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly dies.  I used the Terracotta Tile flowered paper.  Color in the center of the flowers with a Crushed Curry Stampin' Write Marker and the Light Old Olive Blend.  Add a length of the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding just below the center of this banner.  Add the banner with the Foam Adhesive Strips to the center of the card front.

The saying is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set.  Stamp in Old Olive on Whisper White.  Cut the shape with the Stitched So Sweetly dies.  Stamp the flower stamp from the Botanical Prints stamp set in Basic Gray on Whisper White.  Color in and cut out with the Botanical Prints dies.  Add to the banner.  Add the banner with dimensionals.  

Add a bow made from the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding to the front with a glue dot.

Of course you need a little gift to accompany your card.  

OSAT Botanical Prints Treat Holder by Jo Anne Hewins

First make the box.  I used Old Olive card stock.  The box itself is 4 x 8 1/2.  Score on the long side at 2, 4, 6, 8.  Turn and score, at 2.  Burnish the folds with a Bone Folder.  Trim the 1/2 inch piece from the bottom and trim up the bottom score lines up to the fold.  Stamp the flower stamp on the sides.  Glue the side flap to the inside of the box.  Glue the bottom.  I will add a video showing how to make the box.

The flaps are made from a 2 x 11 inch strip of Old Olive.  You might cut this just a little short of 2" so that it fits in the Scallop Tag Topper punch.  Score at 4 1/2 x 6 1/2 and burnish.  Punch each end with the Scallop Tag Topper punch.  Now cut 2 strips of the designer paper that is 1 7/8 x 6.  Punch one end of each strip.  Check to make sure that you have it in the direction you like.  Color one of the strips to match the front of the card.  The other will be the back of the box.  Glue a strip to the green flap.   Fold to glue where the score line is on the flap.  Glue the other paper strip to the flap in the same way.  They will overlap on the bottom.

Fill the box and tie the tops with Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding.

Here is a video showing how to make this box.

 

The saying for the front of the box is from the Honey Bee stamp set.  Stamp in Old Olive and cut out with the Stitched So Sweetly dies.  Add with dimensionals.  The leaves are cut with the Botanical Prints dies.  Glue to the saying.

Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #599 Poppy Moments Dies

Welcome!  I'm so glad you are here today.  For the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge, we are using the colors Real Red, Flirty Flamingo, and Basic Gray.

CCMC599

For my card, I used the Poppy Moments Dies.  They are very popular and there's a reason why.  They are gorgeous!  If you don't have them, you must!

CCMC#599 Poppy Moments Project by Jo Anne Hewins

I started with a card base of Basic Gray.  It measures 4 1/4 x 11 and is scored and folded at 5 1/2.

The next layer is Flirty Flamingo.  It is cut to 3 7/8 x 5 1/8.

The Whisper White layer measures 3 3/4 x 5.  Run it through a die cutting machine with the new Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder.  This folder is fast becoming a big favorite too.

Cut a 5 1/2 " length of the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding and color it with a Dark Flirty Flamingo Blend.  It colors so easily and looks so pretty and it dries so fast.  This ribbon is perfect to make any color you want!  Love!  Run this ribbon down the center of the front layers and tape to the back.  Color more ribbon to make a bow to add later.

Now you are ready for the Poppy Moments Dies.  You will need to cut 1 large and 3 small solid flowers from Real Red, 1 large and 3 small detailed flowers from Flirty Flamingo, three Basic Gray leaf stems, and 1 full and 3 partial flower centers from Basic Gray.  Note that I gave you the numbers to include a small flower on the inside of your card.

CCMC#599 Poppy Moments Layers by Jo Anne Hewins

Match up the detailed flowers with the solid.  I glued these only in the center and allowed the outside free of adhesive.  Glue down the centers of all flowers.  Add the flowers to the card.  All the gray leaf stems.  I did trim them to fit and go where I wished.  All was glued with the Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The word Love is from the Forever Blossoms stamp set.  Stamp in Real Red on a Whisper White scrap.  Fussy cut and add to the card.

Add the bow with a glue dot.  I did use a bow maker to make my bows.  I wish I could tie a pretty bow on my own, but I admit that I need help!

CCMC #599 Poppy Moments Inside of Card by Jo Anne Hewins

The inside of the card has a saying from the Forever Blossoms stamp set.  Add the other flower down in the right corner.

This card may look hard, but it's really just cutting a few parts and putting them together.  This die makes the cards.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you'll try this color combination!

Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #598 with Timeless Tropical

It's the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge with a sketch this week.  I do love a sketch.  It makes me think a little outside my usual box.

CCMC598

When I saw this sketch an idea came immediately.  I wanted to use the Timeless Tropical Bundle and the Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper.  These are both from the January-June Mini Catalog.

CCMC#598 Timeless Tropical Card by Jo Anne Hewins

I love how this card turned out.  Start with a card base of Thick Whisper White cut to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  Score at 4 1/4 on the long side and fold.  Use a Bone Folder to burnish.

Cut the Pool Party designer paper from Tropical Oasis to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  This will cover the entire front of the card.  I like to use the Multipurpose Liquid Glue so I have a little wiggle room for the paper at first.

The next layer is made using a 3 x 4 1/2 piece of Soft Sea Foam.  Run it through your die cutting machine with the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder.  Love it.

Next is a small rectangle of the patterned paper with all the trees.  It measures 1 x 3 1/4.

Use the Tropical Oasis paper with the cars on it to add the circle layer.  The Layering Circles Dies were used to cut out the image with one of the cars featured.  I wanted a car facing to the right of the card for my tree placement.  You could easily use a car facing left and put the trees on the other side.  My placement reinforces the left side of the card where all the action takes place.

CCMC #598 Timeless Tropical by Jo Anne Hewins

The saying is from the Timeless Tropical stamp set.  Stamp it on a 1/2 strip of Whisper White in Early Espresso ink.  This is one of those scraps we get when cutting insides for our cards.  Place the saying on dimensionals.

I used a scrap of Whisper White for the trees.  Place the stamp on the Stamparatus.  I used Stampin' Markers directly on the stamp.  I first inked the tree trunks in Crumb Cake and stamped.  You might need to color again and stamp again.  I find that true when using the markers directly on stamps.  That's why I use the Stamparatus for that.  Now add some Early Espresso ink here and there on the trunk.  Remember you are adding ink directly to the stamp and then stamping.  You may need to do this more than one time.  I then colored in the rest of the trunk on my paper with Crumb Cake.  For the tree, color with a Soft Sea Foam marker directly on the stamp.  It did take several times inking on the rubber and stamping to get the color that I wanted.  Now add Old Olive directly to the rubber.  I tried to hit the areas down the center of the branches.  Repeat until happy.  Cut this out using the In the Tropics dies.  Add to the card with dimensionals.

I just had to add a bow of Linen Thread to my card.  It's the perfect finishing touch.  Here's a video on making this card.

 

CCMC #598 Timeless Tropical Inside of Card by Jo Anne Hewins

Here's the inside of my card.  These trees were stamped the same as the front.  You might be wondering why the saying is on a label.  You experienced stampers already know, don't you.  My saying was not straight.  In that instance you just cover it up.  I stamped again on scrap and cut it out using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  Those dies are a MUST HAVE!

Color Fusers Blog Hop for February 2020

Welcome to the Color Fusers Blog Hop for February of 2020!  You might have just come with Sarah's blog.  She is one creative stamper!  If you are starting here, be sure to visit everyone on the hop.  You will be inspired!

Today we are using Blushing Bride, Very Vanilla, Sahara Sand and Early Espresso.  These are so pretty together!  I was looking in my stash to see what I wanted to use and decided on the flowers in the Cherry Blossoms Dies.  These dies cut and emboss at the same time.  Wonderful!

Color Fusers Cherry Blossom Dies by Jo Anne Hewins

Start with a card base of Blushing Bride that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  Fold at 4 1/4.  

The background paper for this card is from the Woven Threads Designer Series Paper from the Annual catalog.  It's cut at 4 1/8 x 5 3/8.  I wanted to make this layer just a little larger.  In hindsight I see that It doesn't make for the best picture, but it is a pretty card!  This paper is embossed with the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder.

The Cherry Blossoms die set has a larger curved branch.  Cut two from Early Espresso.  Place one in the upper left and the other in the lower right of the card.  There are 4 different die cuts of the flowers.  That's so great to be able to cut so many at one time and have some variation in shape.  I used 8 of the flowers (some are on the inside of the card) in Blushing Bride.  The inside of the flowers cut two at a time.  Cut eight and glue in the center of each flower.  There is a die cut that cuts the smaller flowers two at a time.  I used 6 of these.  Cut from Blushing Bride.  I cut 6 more of the smaller flowers in Early Espresso for the centers.  Add three large flowers to each branch and a small flower to each branch.  Some are glued and some are on dimensionals.

The twine used on this card is the Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Baker's Twine from the Annual catalog.  I pulled out the navy strand.  You need a length of it to go across this layer of paper.  I tape it to the back.  I did make a bow to add a little later.  Use a glue dot.

Color Fusers Cherry Blossom Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

The saying is from the So Sentimental stamp set.  Stamp it in Blushing Bride and then again in Early Espresso on Very Vanilla card stock.  Trim around the words and add to the card front.  For the friendship word try to add bits of dimensionals above and below the twine so that it lies flat.

Cut a couple more of the large branches and trim the end pieces to place here and there around the words.  Glue the small flowers.  Glue the centers and place inside.

Color Fusers Cherry Blossom Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

The inside of this card has a saying from the Peaceful Moments stamp set.  Stamp in Early Espresso.  This saying goes perfectly with the saying on the front.  A stray mark on my card led to so many flowers on the inside, but I do like it.  They do say that mistakes lead to a little more creativity!

Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #597

Welcome to my post for the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #597.  This is a color challenge using Cherry Cobbler, Petal Pink, and Pool Party.

CCMC597

There's no stamping on the front of my card.  I used a punch and several die sets.  Let's get started.

CCMC#597 Heart Combo by Jo Anne Hewins

My card base is Petal Pink that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  Now cut another layer of Petal Pink that is 4 1/8 x 5 3/8.  Run this through your die cut machine with the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder.  Glue to the card front.

Using the Heart Punch Pack punch a Cherry Cobbler scalloped heart and a Petal Pink heart.

Cut 2 swirls from Pool Party using the Parisian dies

Cut the words love and you from Cherry Cobbler using the Well Written dies from the annual catalog.

Add the swirls first.  I used my Silicone Craft Mat, a piece of sponge, and Multipurpose Liquid Glue to add glue to the swirls.  Glue so that they extend to the top right and bottom left corners of the front.  Glue down the scallop heart.  Add the pink heart with dimensionals.  Glue on the love and the you using the same method as the swirls.

CCMC #597 Heart Combo Punch close up by Jo Anne Hewins

Punch 3 flowers with the Small Bloom Punch.  It's one of the free choices from Sale-a-Bration.  with a Sponge Dauber, sponge extra Pool Party color around the petals of the flowers.  Curl the petals with a Bone Folder.  Add a Champagne Rhinestone to the center of each flower.  Add to the heart with glue dots. 

CCMC #597 Heart Combo Punch Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

There's stamping on the inside of the card using the Heartfelt stamp set.  Stamp the large lacy heart in Pool Party and the words in Cherry Cobbler.
