Hope You Know Autumn Card with Tutorial to Download

Today I want to share with you my card for the Tutorial Medley group for October.  Our theme is fall.  We are a group of demonstrators from the US and Canada.  We each make a card with a tutorial to download and add to the group.  Each month we have a compiled group of around 15 tutorials.  We each share as we wish.  I send the tutorial to my customers and to my Luv 2 Create team.  It's my way of trying to give back.  I do appreciate their support.

Crafting with You for a Birthday Card

Hello!  I must start with an apology.  I try so hard to be consistent in my posts.  Right now my aim is to publish every Monday and Thursday.  I missed all of last week.  I'm not sure anyone noticed, but I didn't post.  I had worked ahead before my cruise and scheduled my posts.  I didn't think I would return with Covid.  It just took the energy from me.  I think I'm back now and doing well.  Thank goodness it wasn't a bad case.

I was also late sending a birthday card to my daughter Jessie.  But she has her card now and I think it turned it pretty well.

Crafting with You Card  Heartfelt Hexagon  Sagan and Hazel  Jessie birthday  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

I used the Crafting with You bundle from page 91 of the Stampin' Up! annual catalog.  Before I go on, I must give credit for this idea to my upline Patty Bennett.  She had featured cards using this idea with her father's watercolor painting.  You can find her post here.

I used pictures for the paintings.  Jessie is a high school art teacher, so you can see why she might like these.

My base is Orchid Oasis 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.   I chose this color because it matches Hazel's stuffed elephant Peanuts.  He's her constant companion.  I also like that Sagan is wearing her art shirt, very fitting.

Use the Deckled Rectangle dies for the next two layers.  Both are in Basic White.  I used the second and third largest dies.  

Stamp on the smaller rectangle with the easel inked in Early Espresso.  For my purposes I only inked the bottom part of the stamp with the easel.  Stamp the part that goes over the bottom of the picture on a scrap and cut it out.

The picture is larger than the picture on the stamp.  It can really be any size.  I used the picture itself to determine where I would cut.  Add the picture with Seal.

Stamp the clips from the top of the easel stamp in Basic Gray again on scrap Basic White.  Stamp again.  Cut these out and add to the top of the picture.

Crafting with You  Heartfelt Hexagon  Sagan and Hazel  Jessie birthday  Close Up of Card   Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

The basket is cut from the Crafting with You dies.  Use Pecan Pie card stock.  To make it curve out a little I put a dimensional in the center and glue dots at each end.  

The shadows are made using Watercolor Pencils and a Blender Pen.  Use Pecan Pie.  

Stamp the paint brushes in Early Espresso and color with Watercolor Pencils and the Blender Pen.  Cut out with the dies and Paper Snips.  Add to and behind the basket.

I used the same idea for the inside of the card.  I was thinking that Jessie could cut the card apart and display both parts.

Crafting with You  Heartfelt Hexagon  Sagan and Hazel  Jessie birthday  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

For the inside, I left off the basket and added more paintbrushes.  Use the third largest Deckled Rectangle.

The saying for the card is from the Heartfelt Hexagon, a new release in time for the World Card Making Event recently.  The Happy Birthday is from the Inked & Tiled stamp set and page 95.

That's it.  It's a simple card, but I like it and so did Jessie!  In fact she said I love, love, love it!  Thanks so much for joining me today.  I do hope to be more consistent.  Hoping the Mojo returns!  See you Thursday!

Garden Walk Designer Series Paper Fun Fold Card

Welcome back!  I'm so glad you are here!  First time?  I'm happy to have you.  I definitely hope you'll come back again and again! 

The Garden Walk 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper is on page 53 of the September-December Mini Catalog.  It's not so much holiday oriented although there are a few papers that could be considered Christmas.  It's a paper for all year round so you should get a lot of use out of it.  I have a great little fun fold for you.  We all love fun folds!

Garden Walk Card Folded Out  Fun Fold  Paper Florist Dies  Stylish Shapes dies  2023-2025 In Color Dots  Jo Anne Hewins Luv 2 Create

This is my favorite paper from the Garden Walk pack.  It's probably the darkest paper.  My friends accuse me of going more toward the neutrals.  I guess they are right.  For the paper we are using, the patterns are back to back.  Take a look.  It's pretty paper.  I have a video a little later to show you!

The base of this card is Wild Wheat.  It's one of the 2023-2025 In Colors.  Cut it to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  That's the regular size of a card here in the US.  Mossy Meadow is cut to 4 x 5 1/4.  The Garden Walk DSP measures 3 7/8 x 5 1/8.  I used the floral side for the base of the card.

Now we'll work on the fun fold part.  The base of the fold is again Wild Wheat.  This will be cut to 4 x 11.  Score at 1 1/2, 3 5 1/2, and 8.  It will be an accordion fold.

I started from the inside and worked out.  It doesn't matter at all.  Cut a piece of Mossy Meadow that is 2 3/4 x 3 3/4.  A piece of Basic White is cut 2 5/8 x 3 5/8.  I did add a piece of the stripe designer paper down the right side, 1/4 x 3 5/8 is enough but you can have it a little wider if you wish.  The saying is from the Darling Details stamp set.  Stamp in Mossy Meadow ink.

Garden Walk Card Inside  Fun Fold  Paper Florist Dies  Stylish Shapes dies  2023-2025 In Color Dots  Jo Anne Hewins Luv 2 Create

Decorate the inside with a Mossy Meadow leaf, a Poppy Parade flower, and a center of Wild Wheat.  I used the Paper Florist dies for all of the pieces.

The middle piece to decorate has a Mossy Meadow piece that measures 2 1/4 x 3 3/4.  The designer paper is cut to 2 1/8 x 3 5/8.

Garden Walk Card Close Up  Fun Fold  Paper Florist Dies  Stylish Shapes dies  2023-2025 In Color Dots  Jo Anne Hewins Luv 2 Create

 

For the front of the card, the Mossy Meadow layer is cut to 1 1/4 x 3 3/4,  The striped paper is 1 1/8 x 3 5/8.

Stamp the word friend from Darling Details in Mossy Meadow on scrap Basic White.  Cut this out with the Stylish Shapes dies.  Put the word friend towards the right of the banner.  Glue to the card front with the banner extending out.  Put glue only on the left side of the banner so that you don't glue the card shut.

Add the leaf, flower, and flower center just as on the inside.

Embellish with the 2023-2025 In Color Dots.  Glue the back of the fold to the center of the base.

Here's my video.

 

I hope that you found some useful information and tips.

Abundant Beauty Masks for a Fall Card

If you look on page 47 of the September-December Mini, you'll find the Abundant Beauty Masks.  Don't overlook these tools.  With the masks and Blending Brushes you can make beautiful sunflowers or any color flower, snowflakes, autumn leaves, or a fantastic background.  The possibilities are endless.  Today I'm sharing an autumn card that I think you'll love.

Abundant Beauty Masks Card  So Sincere  Blending Brushes  Linen Thread  2023-2025 In Color Jute  2023-2025 In Color Dots  Tailor Made Tags  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

The base of this card is one of the new In Colors Wild Wheat.  It measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 with the score line at 4 1/4.

Cut a piece of Very Vanilla to 4 x 5 1/4.

With Blending Brushes color this layer with Wild Wheat and Old Olive.  Go lightly tapping off the excess ink on you Grid Paper.  Blend the two colors together as you go from one color to the other.

Now place the leaf mask over this layer.  The mask is larger than the layer.  Tape the mask in place.  I just tape right to the Grid Paper.  Use Wild Wheat, Old Olive, and Cherry Cobbler ink and blending brush to ink in all the places on the mask.  These colors will be darker.  Move to different colors in different areas.  It's great for a leaf to have more than one color.  When you are done, sprinkle some dropets of water over the surface and just allow it to dry.  This adds additional interest to the background.

Abundant Beauty Masks  So Sincere  Close Up  Blending Brushes  Linen Thread  2023-2025 In Color Jute  2023-2025 In Color Dots  Tailor Made Tags  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

Use the Wild Wheat jute from the 2023-2025 In Color Jute Trim.  Separate the strands.  Run this around the card and tie into a knot.  Make a bow of Linen Thread.  I used a bow maker that I got online to make a triple bow.  Add this bow by tying the strands around the center of the bow.  Do all 3 pairs of the strands.  

Stamp the saying from So Sincere in Cherry Cobbler ink on Wild Wheat cardstock.  Cut this out with the smallest tag from the Tailor Made Tags.  Add the tag under the bows with a glue dot and then use dimensionals for the rest.

Add 2023-2025 In Color Dots to embellish.

Abundant Beauty Masks Autumn Card  So Sincere  Blending Brushes  Linen Thread  2023-2025 In Color Jute  2023-2025 In Color Dots  Tailor Made Tags  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

For the inside of the card, add another saying from So Sincere.  Add some color to the corner and use the masks to add more leaves.
