Birds of a Feather Christmas Card

Hello to you today!  I have a cute Christmas card using the Birds of a Feather.  Don't you love this stamp set.  It has something for four great holidays:  Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Valentine's Day!

Birds of a Feather Christmas by Jo Anne Hewins

This card is part of my Christmas Card Class.  Start with a card base of Pool Party that is cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  Stamp over the front of the card with the stars stamp from Birds of a Feather.  Stamp in Pool Party.

The Cherry Cobbler dotted paper is from the Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper.  It measures 1 1/2 x 5 1/2.  The Whisper White strip behind it measures 2 x 5 1/2.  Use the Stitched Be Mine Dies to cut the scalloped edges on the white.  Layer the two pieces and adhere to the left of center on the card front.

Stamp the bird on Whisper White using Memento ink.  Blends were used to color the bird.  I used Light and Dark Pool Party, Light Cherry Cobbler, and Light Pumpkin Pie.  A few people in class wanted to give the bird a cobbler beak.  I see nothing wrong with that!  Punch this out with the 2" Circle Punch.  Cut a coordinating scallop circle from Pool Party using the Layering Circles Dies.  Layer the two and add to the card with dimensionals.   Add a star from the Star Designer Elements.

The saying is from the Birds of a Feather stamp set.  I only wanted the top two lines of the saying.  I used scotch tape to tape off the bottom line.  Ink the stamp, and then, take off the tape.  That last step is super important!!!  The white strip is 3/4 inches wide.  Notch the ends.  Add with dimensionals.  Use glue where the label overlaps the circles.

Here is the inside of the card.  The saying is in Cherry Cobbler.  Stamp the bird again and color.  Use the Dark Daffodil Delight Blend for the star.

Wrapped in Plaid Meets the Pine Tree Punch

The Wrapped in Plaid 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper is so pretty.  It's perfect for any time, but for Christmas it just shines.  Literally.  It has a gold metallic line running through it!  Here's my card for today.

Wrapped in Plaid Pine Tree Card by Jo Anne Hewins

Start with a piece of Shaded Spruce card stock that measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  Stamp the tree from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set in Shaded Spruce.  I did stamp off first.  This adds a little interest to the card.  It might not be noticed at first, but it does add so much!

The plaid paper is cut to 2 x 5 1/2.  I use my grid paper to help center this paper to my card front.  Using the Multipurpose Liquid Glue gives you a small moment to move the paper to just the right place.  Cut 2 pieces of Gold Foil at 1/4 x 5 1/2.  Glue this down on each side of the plaid.  Be sure to butt this up right next to the plaid.  It makes it look like you have used a larger piece of gold, but you have saved!

Cut a circle using the Stitched Shapes dies largest circle.  I used Thick Whisper White for this.  Center the Pine Tree Punch and punch out the tree.  By the way the Perfectly Plaid stamp set and the Pine Tree Punch can be purchased as a bundle to save 10%!  Add the circle to the card with dimensionals.

The tiny stars are punched with the Twinkle Builder Punch from gold foil.  this is a great way to use scraps and not waste anything!  The star at the top of the tree is just a little larger.  Use glue to add the stars.

Stamp the saying in Shaded Spruce on Whisper White.  This saying is from the Christmas Gleaming stamp set.  Fussy cut around it and add under the circle with dimensionals.

Wrapped in Plaid Pine Tree Inside of Card by Jo Anne Hewins

Here is the inside of the card.  The saying is stamped in Night of Navy and is from the Perfectly Plaid set.  Stamp the tree in Shaded Spruce and the trunk in Early Espresso.  Don't forget to add a star at the top of the tree!

I hope you will try this card.  It's so much fun to make.  It's also pretty quick.  Well, those stars do take some time!

Stamping Around the World Blog Hop for November, 2019

Welcome to the Stamping Around the World Blog Hop for November.  Our group publishes a new tutorial for each month.  We also have a blog hop.  The hop features cards using the same products used in the tutorials.  I used the Stitched Stars Dies for November.  These tutorials are yours for free with any purchase!  They have 12 different projects.

No photo description available.

I used the So Many Stars Bundle that features the stamp set and the Stitched Stars Dies.

So Many Stars and Stitched Stars Dies by Jo Anne Hewins

Start with a card base of Night of Navy that measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and fold at 4 1/4.

The layer of Seaside Spray is 4 1/8 x 5 3/8.  Run this through the die cutting machine with the Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder.  Adhere to the base of the card.

Cut out a frame in Night of Navy using the Heirloom Frames dies from the Annual Catalog.  Add this to the card using dimensionals.

Stamp the saying from So Many Stars in Versamark on Whisper White card stock.  For this saying we are using silver, gold, and copper embossing powders.  Cover part of the saying in silver, then add gold on part, and then finish up with gold on the remainder of the saying.  Use the Heat Tool to melt the powder.  Cut out this saying using the center of the oval from the Heirloom Frames dies.  Glue to the center of the frame.

So Many Stars Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

Using the smaller stars from the Stitched Stars dies, cut out lots of stars from silver, gold, and copper foil sheets.  Use the stars from the scroll die also.

To add the stars, begin with the largest stars and place them around the frame.  Continue to work placing stars around the frame with the next largest and work on down to the smallest stars.  Just fill in where needed.  I used glue and glue dots.

Add a bow using the Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon using a glue dot.

So Many Stars by Jo Anne Hewins

The saying on the inside of the card is also from So Many Stars.  It is embossed in copper and gold.  Cut the swirl in silver foil using the Stitched Stars dies.  Cut this again in copper.  Use the copper stars to fill in.

Birds of a Feather Christmas Card.

I have such a cute card for you today.  When I saw the Birds of a Feather stamp set in the Holiday catalog, I knew it would be mine.  I don't even know why I like it so much, but I do!

Birds of a Feather for Christmas by Jo Anne Hewins

Isn't it cute!  Start with a card base of Coastal Cabana 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  Using the snowflakes from the Snowman Season stamp set, stamp snowflakes in the upper right and the lower left corners of the base in Coastal Cabana.

The Real Red layer is 3 5/8 x 4 7/8. 

The Whisper White layer is 3 1/2 x 4 3/4.  Stamp the snowflakes on this layer, too.  Start at the top right and work your way down again to the lower left.  Some are stamped full strength and some are stamped off.  Use Coastal Cabana ink.

Add a strip of the Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper that is 3/4 x 4 3/4.  This is just below the center of the paper.

Stamp the saying in the lower right in Real Red.

Birds of a Feather for Christmas Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

Stamp the Christmas bird on a piece of Whisper White in Memento Black ink.  Color with dimensionals.  I used the Light and Dark Pool Party, Dark So Saffron, Light Pumpkin Pie, and Light and Dark Real Red blends.  Add the Light Pool Party ink around the bird too.  This helps everything stand out a little better, especially the white on the hat.  Cut this with the Stitched Shapes dies.  Cut a coordinating scallop square from Real Red using the Layering Squares dies.  Layer these together and add to the card with dimensionals.

Birds of a Feather For Christmas Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

For the inside of the card, the saying is from the Snowman Season stamp set.  It's stamped in Real Red.  Add another bird colored with the same blend colors.

If you haven't tried out blends, you just might want to give them a try.  They are so much fun!

Come Sail Away Christmas Card

Hello to you today!   I have a Christmas card for you that might seem a little strange.  First of all, it uses the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper.  That is not Christmas paper.  Second, it's a black and white card.  That's not traditional Christmas colors.

Come Sail Away Christmas by Jo Anne Hewins

I do have a video for you on this one even though it's pretty easy.

Start with a card base of Basic Black.  It measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and is folded at 4 1/4.

The next layer is the Sparkle Glimmer paper.  It's cut at 3 3/4 x 5.  This paper is a little more expensive.  I like to cut out shapes from the inside of the layer.  The patterned paper will cover any holes and you have used your glimmer paper to the max!

The Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper is cut to 3 5/8 x 4 7/8.  With a very thin stream of the Multipurpose Liquid Glue quickly trace the stems and leaves on the patterned paper.  I was not very careful.  Cover with the Ice Stampin' Glitter found in the Holiday catalog.

Use the Frosted Bouquet dies to cut a leaf bunch.  Cover this with the glitter also.  Let these pieces dry. 

Adhere the designer paper to the Sparkle paper.  Run a piece of the Glittered Organdy Ribbon down the center of this layer.  I tape from the back using plain scotch tape.  Adhere these layers to the card base.

Stamp the word JOY from the So Many Stars stamp set in Versamark on a Whisper White scrap.  Emboss with Black Emboss Powder and your Heat Tool.  Cut this out with the Stitched Shapes dies.  Add to the card.

Add a bow of the Glittered Organdy Ribbon with a glue dot.  I do use a bow maker to make my bows.  Stampin' Up! does not sell these.

Add the black glittered leaf near the bottom of the circle.

Come Sail Away Christmas Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

The saying on the inside is from the So Many Stars stamp set.  I added a 1 inch strip of the designer paper with more glitter to the inside.

Here is the video for the card.  Several things did not go quite as expected.  Time played a factor in my not trying again.  I still think it might be helpful!
