Cards - Birthday

Timeless Tropical Love That Flower!

When I first saw the Timeless Tropical stamp set and the In the Tropics dies (they do come in a bundle) I focused on the pineapple.  I loved it.  I wanted it!  This bundle has turned into a real treasure for me.  It is really versatile.   I did share a pineapple card here.   I've made a card featuring the palm trees here.  Today I share a card using that large flower.  It has captured my heart.  This was a card we made in my last class.

Timeless Tropical Project by Jo Anne Hewins

For this card start with a base of Flirty Flamingo that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  Fold at 4 1/4.  Stamp over this base with the large flower stamp.  I used Lovely Lipstick ink.  Using these two colors together was a stretch for me, but it is so pretty!

I used the Stitched So Sweetly dies to cut out the rectangle from a piece of Whisper White.  The saying is from the Special Celebrations stamp set from page 22 of the Annual Catalog.  Stamp it in Lovely Lipstick.  Add this layer with dimensionals.

Stamp the large flower in Lovely Lipstick.  Color with a Light Flirty Flamingo Blend and cut out with the In the Tropics dies.  Stamp 3 leaves in Old Olive ink.  Color these in with a Light Granny Apple Green Blend and cut them out.  Arrange the flower and leaves.  I used glue and dimensionals, glue where they cover the banner and dimensionals where they hang over the banner.

Add some Lovely Lipstick dots from the Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots.  That's it!

Timeless Tropical Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

For the inside of the card, the saying is from the Perennial Birthday stamp set.  Stamp the flower first.  To add the leaves, you need to make a mask.  Stamp the flower on a sticky note making sure that part is on the sticky space.  Cut this out with snips.  Use this to cover the flower you stamped.  Now stamp the leaves.  The part you don't want goes on the sticky note.  Just pull it off.  Color in with Blends.

Run the Blueberry Bushel cardstock with the golf balls through the Absolutely Argyle Embossing folder.

Die cut Garden Green rectangle frame using the 2 largest rectangle frames. Hint: use a small piece of washi tape or painters’ tape to keep the 2 dies in place when run through die cutting machine. Die cut 2 frames and glue together to make a firmer frame.

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!  

Image may contain: text

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.

OSAT Botanical Prints Treat Box Side View 2 by Jo Anne Hewins

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.

NC Demo Blog Hop for January Sale-a-Brate

Welcome to the NC Demo Blog Hop for January.  This month we celebrate Sale-a-Bration. 

Join us blog

You may have just come from Toni's blog.  What a great project!  You'll find lots of inspiration so please take the whole hop.  NC has very talented stampers!  The Sale-a-Bration Brochure is chocked full of great items that are free with purchase through March 31st.  Contact me for more information or if you need a catalog.

Sale-a-Bration 2020

One of the first stamp sets I got was The Gang's All Meer.  It is so cute!  The Gang's All Meer is available for free with a $50 purchase.  We made this card in my classes recently.

Meercat project by Jo Anne Hewins

I started with a card base of Call Me Clover that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  Stamp the cactus plant randomly over the card front.  Stamp in Call Me Clover.

The detailed accent is cut from another Sale-a-Bration item.  It's the Lily Pad Dies.  Cut this out in Lovely Lipstick.  This cut out will not reach all the way across the card.  Simply cut it in half.  Glue on to each side of the front.  Use Grid Paper to help you keep them straight.  I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue down the center.  Squeeze lightly.  The Lily Pad Dies are available with a $100 purchase.

Stamp the meerkats in Early Espresso on Whisper White.  Color them using the Light and Dark Crumb Cake blends.  Cut these out using the Stitched So Sweetly dies.  They are new in the January-June Mini Catalog.  Add this panel with dimensionals.

The Gangs All Meer Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

Stamp the birthday hat in Lovely Lipstick on a Whisper White scrap.  Fussy cut and add to the center meerkat.  Put a little bit of dimensional under the top of the hat and a little glue along the bottom.

The Happy Birthday is from The Gang's All Meer stamp set.  Stamp in Lovely Lipstick.  This is actually part of a larger saying.  Use the Classic Label Punch to punch out just what you need.  On this card I trimmed the ends, but you wouldn't have to do that.

I thought the meerkats needed a little fancy so I added a few flowers.  I used another Sale-a-Bration item.  It's the Small Bloom Punch!  This punch is available free with a $100 order.  These flowers had a little tender card.  First punch the flower from Lovely Lipstick card stock.  Using a Sponge Dauber, sponge around the outside of the flower and add a little extra color to the center.  With a Bone Folder gently curl the petals back.  Now take a Stampin' Pierce Mat.  Lay down the flower.  I used the wrong end of the retired Piercing Tool to push down on the center of the flower.  This pushes the outside up making a beautiful flower with some dimension.  Add a sequin center from the Peaceful Poppies Sequins with a glue dot.  Add to the card with a glue dot.

Here's a short video showing how to add dimension to the flowers.

 

I used the Call Me Clover Grosgrain Ribbon for the leaves of my flowers.  Cut about 2 inches, fold in half, and use glue dots to add tucked in right under the flower.

Meercat Inside by Jo Anne Hewins


The saying on the inside is from The Gang's All Meer.  It's stamped in Lovely Lipstick.  Stamp the lone meerkat in Early Espresso.  Color in with the Light and Dark Crumb Cake blends.  Stamp the hat and cut out.
