Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #602 Peaceful Poppies

Today we have a sketch for the Create with Connie and Mary Challenge #602.

CCMC602

I used the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper and the Peaceful Poppies Elements to make my card.

CCMC #602 Poppy by Jo Anne Hewins

This was an easy card to make.  The base is Thick Whisper White cut to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  Score and fold at 4 1/4.

The Peaceful Poppies paper was cut to fit the card front at 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  Use Multipurpose Liquid  Glue to adhere.  This glue gives you a little give so you can place it just right.

The 2 thin rectangles are cut from Old Olive.  This paper is part of the Regals 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper.  They are 1/2 x 3 1/2 and 1/2 x 3 3/4.

Use the Stitched So Sweetly dies to cut the second largest rectangle in Whisper White.

The saying is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set.  Stamp in Poppy Parade.

Run a length of Old Olive ribbon from the Botanical Prints Product Medley across the lower part of the banner.  Make a bow to add later.  Add the banner to the center of the card with dimensionals.

Add the printed die cuts to the rectangle corners.  These are from the Peaceful Poppies Elements.  This kit also has vellum elements.  Use a sponge dauber to add Poppy Parade to the back of a flower and Old Olive to the back of 4 leaves.  Punch these out and add to the banner.  Stick those leaves behind the printed cut outs.

Add the bow with a glue dot.

Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #600 Pleased As Punch

Hello to you today.  As part of the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge I have a card based on our sketch.

CCMC600

I haven't used the Pleased As Punch Designer Series Paper yet.  It's part of the Coordination Product Release.  This paper is so bright and colorful.  It also coordinates with the Tulip Builder Punch, the Umbrella Builder Punch, and the Small Bloom Punch.  You get 3 each of 4 double sided sheets.  It's only available until the end of March.  Here is my card.

CCMC#600 Pleased as Punch Sketch by Jo Anne Hewins

There's not much stamping to this one.  I think these colors would bring cheer to anyone!

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

The stripe paper is cut to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  I like to add this layer with the Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  It gives just a little time to adjust the paper perfectly.

The raindrop paper measures 3 x 4.  Glue down right in the center of the card.

There is a small long rectangle of green down near the bottom of the raindrop paper.  It's from the back of the tulip paper in the same pack.  It is 1/2 x 4.  I was able to get this from scraps even though I punch out a lot of the tulips.

The next layer is from the Brights 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper from the Annual Catalog.  Cut it to 3/4 x 3 1/4.  Place this with dimensionals over the small rectangle.

CCMC #600 Pleased as Punch DSP Sketch by Jo Anne Hewins

The saying is from the Timeless Tulips stamp set.  Stamp in Balmy Blue on a scrap of Whisper White.   I put glue along the top and dimensionals along the bottom.

The tulip is punched with the Tulip Builder Punch.  Instead of punching the leaves from the tulip side, I punched them from the green side.  There's no matching things up!  The leaves have a glue dot at the bottom and a dimensional out at the end.

CCMC #600 Pleased as Punch DSP Inside of Card by Jo Anne Hewins

The inside of the card has another tulip.  The stem is just a 1/4 inch strip from scrap.  The saying is from the Sending You Thoughts stamp set (Sale-a-Bration).  Stamp in Balmy Blue.

This was actually my second card using this sketch and the tulips.  Here is my first.

CCMC#600 Pleased as Punch Tulip Bouquet by Jo Anne Hewins

This just has more tulips.  Which one do you like best?  I thought this one might hide too much of the raindrop piece in the background.

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.

Timeless Tropical Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

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.

Instructions:

Die cut 10 golf balls from Whisper White Cardstock. Glue the golf balls down randomly onto the Blueberry Bushel cardstock. Be sure some of the golf balls are off the edges. Trim the edges of the golf balls.

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.

Die cut 6 pieces of Garden Green grass and glue into position along bottom edge Blueberry Bushel cardstock. Overlap the edges slightly and leave the grass top edges unglued so can curl slightly.

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.
