Baby Pull Toys with Paper Piecing

I've been playing with the Baby Pull Toys stamp set.  You can find it on page 64 of the Jan-June Mini Catalog.  Here's my card for today.

Baby Pull Toys elephant piecing Card by Jo Anne Hewins

I've probably mentioned it many times before, but we're expecting  a new granddaughter any day now.  I had little Hazel in mind when making my card.  I'm so excited!

I used a card base of Blushing Bride that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.

I covered the front of the card with the dots Blushing Bride paper in the Subtles 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper.  Cut it to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.

The Smoky Slate piece is from the Neutrals 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper.  It is cut to 2 1/2 x 3 1/2.

Stamp the elephant in Basic Gray.  Stamp her again on the dots paper and cut her out.  Cut right on the lines.  Glue on top of the stamped elephant.  Color the rest in the Smoky Slate combo of blends.   Cut this out with the 2nd largest circle in the Stitched Shapes dies.  Cut a coordinating scallop circle in Smoky Slate using the Layering Circles dies. 

Wrap the Blushing Bride twine from the Snail Mail Twine Combo around the card twice.  Tape behind where the elephant will go.  Make a bow to add with a glue dot after adding the elephant with dimensionals.

Stamp the saying in Basic Gray and trim.  Add with dimensionals.

The hearts are punched with the Dog builder Punch from Blushing Bride paper from the Subtles pack.

Baby Pull Toys  Elephant Inside by Jo Anne Hewins
Here's the inside of the card.  Stamp the saying in Basic Gray and add another elephant made just like the one on the front.

Baby Pull Toys Full View by Jo Anne Hewins

This is a good basic design that you could use with almost any stamp set.  When filling an entire card using a 12 x 12 sheet of designer paper you can only get 4 cards.  I like to fill a card when using a 6 x 6 paper.  I feel like I'm wasting less paper.  I do love the look when covering the entire card.

Here is a teaser for my March class to go.  There are 3 cards.  You can get this set of cards free with a $50 order using the Host Code F3AEYHQU.  You can also purchase the kits to make the three cards for $15 plus shipping.  Included is the card kits and a PDF emailed to you with links to videos for each card.  My Luv 2 Create team members will pay $10.  You will need the Springtime Joy stamp set or some set that you can substitute.  I cannot send stamped images.

Baby Pull Toys W Fun Fold

My last post was a card using Hey Chick and Hey Birthday Chick on a W Fun Fold.  I wanted to make another card using the same fold and decided to use the Baby Pull Toys set.  Many are aware that I'm expecting my second granddaughter in the next few days.  I guess my mind has turned to babies.  Here's the card.

Baby Pull Toys Card by Jo Anne Hewins

The card base is 4 1/4 x 11 scored and folded at 5 1/2.  The paper is Thick Basic White.

On the front is a 2 x 4 1/4 inch strip of Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper.

Color a Square Vellum Doily with Terracotta ink and a Blending Brush.  Add to the card front with a few dots of glue in the center.

Stamp the giraffe from the Baby Pull Toys stamp set in Memento Black on a piece of Basic White.  Cut out with the second largest circle in the Stitched Shapes dies.  Cut a scalloped frame from the Layering Circles dies in Terracotta Tile card stock.  Color with the Smoky Slate combo, the Dark Petal Pink, ad the Dark Calypso Coral blends.  

Add a bow with a glue dot.  The twine is in the Snail Mail Twine Combo Pack.  

The saying is from the Baby Pull Toys stamp set.  Stamp in Memento and trim around it.  Add with dimensionals except over the circle.

For the inside, cut two pieces of the same patterned paper in the Fine Art Floral DSP.  Add to both panels in the inside.

Baby Pull Toys Created by Jo Anne Hewins

The Thick Basic White strip is 1 3/4 x 11, scored at 2 3/4, 5 1/2, 8 1/4.  Fold to make a W.  I'm going to refer you to the video I posted last time.  Go here to see it.

The panels are 2 1/4 x 2 3/4 in Terracotta Tile and 2 1/8 x 2 5/8 in Basic White.  Stamp the elephant, giraffe, and lion on the white panels and color with the blends mentioned above.  Glue to the Terracotta and then add to the strip with Tear and Tape.  The saying is from the same stamp set.  The hearts are stamped off Terracotta Tile.

Facebook Live 1.20.21 Kangaroo & Company Cards

I love the Kangaroo & Company bundle from the Jan-June Mini Catalog.  I focused on this bundle for my Facebook Live this past Wednesday.  Here are the cards we made.

Kangaroo & Company Card Group by Jo Anne Hewins

I love that there are choices of hearts, flowers, a baby joey, or presents that can go in the kangaroo pouch.  You can even put them on a tab to pull out and replace with another.  It reminds me of paper dolls.

Kangaroo & Company Valentine Note Card by Jo Anne Hewins

The first easy card was made using one of the Basic White Note Cards & Envelopes.  I simply stamped the envelope stamp randomly over the card front in Memento Black.  Color in the hearts with Stampin' Write Markers.  I used the Real Red from the Regals and the Blushing Bride from the Subtles.   I used the markers because they do not bleed through to the other side like Blends do.  I did not want to see it from the inside.

Wind some of the Blushing Bride twine from the Snail Mail Twine Combo around the card and tape where it will be covered by the heart.  Make a bow to add later with a rolled glue dot.

Stamp the saying from the Punch Party stamp set in Real Red on Blushing Bride card stock.  Punch with the heart from the Heart Punch Pack.  Punch the scallop heart from Real Red card stock.  Adhere the two and add to the card center with dimensionals.  

Add the bow.

Kangaroo & Company Valentine by Jo Anne Hewins

This card uses the patterned paper from the Snail Mail Designer Series Paper.  

The base is Real Red 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and fold at 4 1/4.  The Blushing Bride layer is 3 7/8 x 5 1/8.  I trimmed just a tiny bit from the side.  The 3 patterned of  Snail Mail paper are 1 5/8 x 3 3/4.  I started gluing with the hearts paper and then added each one butting them up against each other.  Add this layer to the card front.

The heart is from Blushing Bride card stock and is cut from the Stitched Be Mine dies.  Use the scalloped large die and the heart both to cut this out.  The heart alone only makes the stitching.  The scallop piece can be added if you wish.  Use the Painted Texture 3D embossing folder to add some texture to the heart.  Glue to the center of the card.

Stamp the large kangaroo and the joey in Memento.  Color with the Crumb Cake combo, the Ivory blend, and the Dark Petal Pink blend.  Cut out with the Kangaroo dies.  Add with dimensionals.   Stamp the hearts with Memento and color with the Real Red Combo blends.  cut out with the dies and add with dimensionals.

The saying is from the meant to Be stamp set.  Cut out with the rectangle in the Kangaroo dies.  Add with dimensionals.

Cut small hearts using the Stitched Be Mine dies and add them to the card front.

Kangaroo & Company Family by Jo Anne Hewins

This card starts with a basic size base of Rococo Rose.  The Blushing Bride layer is 4 1/8 x 5 3/8.  The designer paper from the Paper Blooms Sale-a-Bration Designer Series Paper is 3 3/4 x 5.

Before adhering the layers, cut the largest oval from the Layering Ovals dies from the Blushing Bride layer.  Use the Old World Paper 3D embossing folder with the oval.  Add the oval to the center of the card.  

Run a length of the Blushing Bride twine around the card and tie in a bow.

Stamp the big kangaroo, the child kangaroo, and the baby.  Color with the Smoky Slate combo blends and the Dark Petal Pink blend.  Cut with the dies.  For this card the baby is added to the top of the tab.  Watch how you add the big kangaroo to the card so that you can add the baby and also take it out.  Add the child.

The saying is from the Kangaroo & Company bundle.  Add with dimensionals.  Use the Rococo Rose pad.

For this card we also stamped the hearts, the presents, and the flowers so that they can be interactive on the card.

I think my granddaughter Sagan will be playing with this card.

One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop for August - New Beginnings

Hello to you!  This is the time of year for new beginnings however strange they may be here in 2020.  I'm so happy you have joined the One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop.  You might have come from Candy's blog.  She is so very talented! 

Thanks so joining me for a while.  There are all kinds of new beginnings.  I've chosen to think about a new baby.  I haven't made a baby card in a long time.

OSAT August New Beginnings by Jo Anne Hewins

My card base is Thick Whisper White that is cut to 4 1/4 x 11, scored and folded at 5 1/2.

Cut a piece of the speckled Crumb Cake paper from the Guilded Autumn Specialty Paper.  It's not just for fall.  It measures the size of the card front, 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  Use the Well Said stamp set to stamp the saying in Early Espresso.  Some are the espresso ink, some stamped off first, and some stamped the third time or even 4th.  I wanted all of those tones.  To do this set up the saying on the Stamparatus in the middle of the clear plate.  Make sure it's straight.  Begin stamping.  I moved the paper all over the surface of the Stamparatus making sure that the paper was straight each time.  I did need to use the hinges to move the paper lower, too.  I love how this turned out.

Use the Wreath Builder dies to make the wreath.  A leaf wreath was cut out in Shaded Spruce and the more detailed wreath was cut out using Vellum card stock and in Just Jade.  Add glue sparingly around the circle part of the die.  I glued the vellum first, followed by the Shaded Spruce leaf, and then the Just Jade detailed.  By  just gluing around the circle part, you can fluff up parts of the wreaths.  Add to the center of the card.

To make the bow, pull apart the strands of Linen Thread.  I tied my bow using a bow maker.  Leaves the ties a little long.  Add the bow with a glue dot.  

The new Foam Adhesive Sheets are the star of the next part of the card.  Adhere some of the Petal Pink, a little speckled, paper from the Peony Garden Designer SeriesPaper to the Foam Adhesive Sheet.  Cut out the WELCOME using the Well Written dies and the BABY using the Playful Alphabet dies.  Add the WELCOME over the ties of the bow.  Add BABY at the bottom of the wreath.

The stars are made using the Stitched Stars dies.  This was a little time intensive.  We once had a punch with the little stars.  I guess it has retired.  Add the stars all over the wreath and the front of the card.

OSAT August New Beginnings Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

The inside of the card is simple.  The saying reflects the words on the front.  Add a few more stars.

For the 3D portion of the One Stamp of a Time hop, I made a gift card holder.

OSAT August New Beginnings Gift Card Holder by Jo Anne Hewins

The gift card holder is made using the Ornate Layers dies.  Cut the rectangle die from the Peony Garden Designer Series Paper and fold in half.  Add the gift card to the holder with a glue dot.

Decorate the holder in much the same way as the card.  Use 1/2 of each wreath cut using the same colors as the card.  Cut out the BABY again using the paper from the Guilded Autumn Specialty paper and the Foam Adhesive Sheets.  Cut more stars using this paper also.

The saying is stamped in Early Espresso on white scraps and cut apart.  Add to the holder with glue dots.

Tie the holder shut with Linen Thread.  I did pull apart the strands again and used the holes already there from the die cut.  It was a little tricky to get the thread pulled through there.  Tie in a bow.

Here are the pair together.

OSAT August new Beginnings Card and Gift Card Holder by Jo Anne Hewins

A baby certainly means a new beginning in so many ways.  It's a miracle, you know.

Your going to want to continue on this hop all the way through.  I know you'll find lots of inspiration!
