Facebook Live 3.10.2021 Using a Sketch to Design a Card

Welcome!  Today we are using a sketch to design a card.  This is the sketch.

CCMC653

Every Thursday I take part in the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.  One week we have a color challenge and the next week we have a sketch.

We made two cards using the sketch.  For the first we used the Hydrangea Haven stamp set and the Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper.  Here is the card.

Facebook Live 3.10 2021 Using a Sketch Hydrangea Haven by Jo Anne Hewins

My card base was Thick Basic White measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored and folded at 4 1/4.  Cut the background paper to 4 1/2 x 5 1/2 and glue onto the base.  This paper is from the Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper.

Use the 2nd largest rectangle from the 4 skinny rectangles from the Stitched Rectangles dies for the 4 panels.  Choose two different designer papers from Hydrangea Hill.  Add these with dimensionals.  You will need to overlap them and just use glue in some places.

The next panel is cut from Basic White using the 3 largest rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly dies.  Glue this down.

Cut a hydrangea from one of the designer papers and add to the card with dimensionals.

Stamp and add the saying from Hydrangea Haven in Gorgeous Grape.

Add some Basic Pearls.

The second card uses the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set and the Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper.

Facebook Live 3.10.2021 Friends Are Like Seashells by Jo Anne Hewins

The base for this card is Crumb Cake card stock.  The background paper is cut to 4 x 5 1/4.  Cut the strips using the same rectangle die from Stitched Rectangles.  Glue these strips to the base.

From another sheet of designer paper, cut out seashells and arrange on the front of the card.  Add with dimensionals.

Add the saying in Crumb Cake ink.

Add some of the Elegant Faceted Gems.

The video has a few extra added tips for making the cards.  Here you go!

 

Here's a picture of both of the cards.

One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop Three Cheers

Welcome to the One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop for March.  The theme this month is Three Cheers as we celebrate birthdays.  Everybody has one and it's a great time to celebrate!  

May be an image of flower and text that says 'OSAT ONE STAMP AT A TIME BLOG HOP'

It seems so strange, but I got so bogged down designing a card for today.  Birthdays.  It's like the range was just too broad.  I was overwhelmed.  There's a lot going on right now.  I'm going to be a new grandmother within the next week.  It's hard to concentrate.  Enter the man from UPS with a box for me from Stampin' Up!  I have a new stamp set.  Let's use it!  My new set is called Hot Dog.  It's on page 72 of the Jan-June Mini.  I think it's the last new stamp set offered before they to into a review.  Don't miss it.  Dogs and birthdays and so we give them cheers!

OSAT Hot Dog by Jo Anne Hewins

The card base is Real Red cut to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.

I'm using the Playful Pets Designer Series Paper for my card front.  Cut it at 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  Make sure to pay attention to the orientation of the paper.  Glue to the front.

The next panel is Real Red and measures 4 3/4 x 3 5/8.  The Basic White layer is 4 5/8 x 3 1/2.

I was able to stamp the 3 dogs together using masking.  Stamp the sitting dog in the center first in Memento Black.  Stamp the dog on a sticky note making sure you are using the sticky area.  Cut this out on the line.  Place the cut out over the dog just stamped.  Now stamp the other two dogs. 

To stamp the balloons, make a mask of the heads of the other two dogs.  Add these and stamp.  Stamp again on the stripe designer paper from Playful Pets.  Cut around these and glue to the balloons.

There was just enough room to stamp the saying between two balloons.

To color the dogs, I googled dachshund.  I found the colors I used so I hope the dogs are OK.  I used Cajun Craze combo, Smoky Slate combo, Crumb Cake combo, and Real Red for the collar.

The dog prints are in Memento Black.

Mount the layer on dimensionals.  Add a little of the Real Red ribbon from the Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack.

OSAT Hot Dog Inside of Card by Jo Anne Hewins

Here's the inside of the card.  Stamp a dog and cut it in half.  Add to each end of the saying.  The hearts were punched with the Dog Builder Punch.

OSAT Hot Dog Treat Bag by Jo Anne Hewins

For my 3D item, I used the 3 x 9 Printed Gusseted Cellophane Bags.  I didn't realize they were in the catalog.  I need to use these!  I cut a strip of the designer paper 2 7/8 x 12.  Take the bag and flatten the bottom.  If you tape the seam at the bottom flat, it helps with that.  Fold the DSP at 2 inches.  That part goes on the bottom of the bag.  Trim the designer paper even with the top of the bag.  Fill with dog bones.  Straighten the top and staple shut.  Fold down twice about 1/2 inch.  secure with glue dots.  Tie both ribbons from the Playful Pets Trim Combo into a bow.

The tag is a piece of Basic White card stock a little less that 2 inches x 4 1/4.  Cut a piece of the red stripe designer paper the same size and glue together.  Punch one end with the Scallop Tag Topper punch.  Stamp a dog on white scrap and color.  Add to the tag with dimensionals.  Stamp dog prints.  Stamp the sayings and trim around them.  Add with dimensionals.  Tie to the bag.

I think I'm going to love the Hot Dog stamp set!  I'm so glad it was delivered right when I needed some inspiration!

Make sure to hop along and visit everyone to get some great birthday ideas!

I love being a part of the Tutorial Medley group.  It allows me to provide the free tutorials on Tuesdays and Fridays.  Today I have a card using the Friends Are Like Seashells bundle.  Oh, the possibilities are endless with this bundle!  The card today was created by me.

Tutorial Medley March Friends Are Like Seashells

I love how this card turned out!  Let me share all the details and measurements with you.

Friends Are Like Seashells

Supplies:

Stamp Sets: Friends Are Like Seashells (154368), bundle (156205)

Cardstock: Seaside Spray (150883), Crumb Cake (120953), Basic White (159276)

Ink: Versamark (102283), Seaside Spray (150085), Crumb Cake (147117), Crumb Cake Combo Blends (154882)

Tools & Accessories: Blender Brushes (153611), Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack (152475), Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder (109129), Heat Tool (129053), Gold Glitter Enamel Dots (152155), Seashell 3D Embossing Folder (154309), Paper Snips (103579), Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (149653), Multipurpose Liquid Glue (110755), Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430)

Designer Paper: Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper (154288)

 

Measurements:

Card Base: Seaside Spray 4 ¼ x 11, score at 5 ½, 6 ¾

Cardstock #2: Crumb Cake 1 x 4, Crumb Cake 4 x 4

Cardstock #3: Basic White 3 7/8 x 3 7/8, scrap for sentiment, seashell

Designer Paper #1: Sand & Sea 7/8 x 3 7/8

 

Instructions:

Fold and burnish the card base. Glue the space between the card spine and the next fold down.

In the small space, glue the thin Crumb Cake piece and the Sand & Sea DSP thin strip.

Glue down the large Crumb Cake piece.

On the Basic White large piece, rub over the surface with an Embossing Buddy or a dryer sheet to remove the static.

Randomly stamp the sand dollar and the starfish over this piece using Versamark. Don’t be afraid to go off the edges.

Add the Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and then heat with the Heat Tool.

Trace around the sand dollars and starfish with the light Crumb Cake blend.

Make a mask for the sand dollar and starfish by stamping them on a sticky note making sure that you stamp on the sticky part. Cut out on the lines. I made about three of each.

Cover the images with the sticky notes and add Crumb Cake ink with a Blender Brush. You might need to add color to a section and then move the masks to another area. Also add the Crumb Cake dots while images are covered. Keep working until the whole layer is covered.

Glue this layer down on the Crumb Cake layer.

On scrap Basic White, stamp the seashell in Versamark, add embossing powder, and heat.

Use the dies to cut out the seashell. Parts will still be attached and will need to be cut with snips. You could also choose to just cut out the whole seashell with snips.

Use a Blender Brush to add Seaside Spray ink to the seashell. Rub away extra ink with a paper towel.

Place the cut out in the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder and run through the SU Cut & Emboss Machine. Add the seashell with dimensionals.

Stamp the sentiment on Basic White with Versamark, add embossing powder, and heat. Trim the sentiment. Add dimensionals to the back. Add some of the gold twine from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack. You might need to add additional dimensionals to get the sentiment to stick well.

Add Gold Glitter Enamel Dots to embellish.

Tie the gold trim around the designer paper section and tie into a knot. Make a bow and add with a rolled up glue dot. This twine does unravel easily.

For the inside, emboss a sentiment in gold. Add a sand dollar down in the bottom corner as on the front. Trace with a light Crumb Cake Blend, add a mask and the dots and use a Blender Brush to add Crumb Cake color.

Enjoy your beautiful card!
