Cards - Christmas

Angels of Peace Fun Fold

I love the angels in the Angels of Peace stamp set found on page 42 of the August-December Mini Catalog for Stampin' Up!  I used this stamp set for my addition to the Tutorial Medley group for October.  Here is my card.

October Tutorial Medley Angels of Peace Card with Belly Band  Ornate Layers dies  Ornate Frames dies  Harvest Meadow DSP  Jo Anne Hewins

Although I love angels, I did have a little trouble making a card using this set.  I do love this one and I've seen others on Pinterest that have my juices going!

This card uses the Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper, the Ornate Layers dies, and the paper piecing technique.

Here are all the measurements and directions.

Angels of Peace

Supplies:

Stamp Sets: Angels of Peace (156365)

Cardstock: Misty Moonlight (153081), Basic White (159276), Soft Suede (115318)

Ink: Memento Black (132708), Misty Moonlight (153118), Petal Pink Combo Blends (154893)

Tools & Accessories: Ornate Frames dies (150664), Ornate Layers dies (152726), Snips (103579), Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack (153620), Adhesive Sheets (152334), Foam Adhesive Sheets (152815), Tear & Tape (154031), Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430), Mini Glue Dots (103683), Bone Folder (102300)

Designer Paper: Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper (156494)

Measurements:

Card Base: Misty Moonlight, score at 2 1/8 from each side, Misty Moonlight 1 x 10 for belly band

Cardstock #2: Basic White 3 ½ x 5 for frame, 2 ¼ x 3 5/8 for angel, scrap for sentiment

Designer Paper #1: 2 pieces of Misty Moonlight 2 x 5 3/8, scraps of blue and bumblebee for paper piecing

Instructions:

Score and fold card base 2 1/8 from each side. Use Bone Folder to burnish folds. Add the 2 pieces of Harvest Meadow DSP to each panel of the outside of the card.

Stamp the angel on the 2 ¼ x 3 5/8 piece of Basic White in Memento Black ink. Stamp the angel again on the Moonlight designer paper and on the Bumblebee designer paper (wings) and on a scrap of Soft Suede (hair). Place some of the Adhesive Sheets to the backs of these pieces of designer paper. That will turn your pieces into stickers.

Carefully cut with snips the areas of the paper for the dress, bird, hair, and wings. Remove the backing and add to the angel. Cut right on the line or just outside. It will look great because you also have the lines from the original angel. Color the skin areas with the Light Petal Pink Blend.

Cut the fancy frame from the other piece of white using the Ornate Layers dies.

Add the angel rectangle to the fancy frame using a piece of the Foam Adhesive Sheet. Add the twine from the Flowers for Every Season around to the back of the angel. Make a bow from the twine to add later.

Stamp the sentiment in Misty Moonlight on a scrap of white and cut out using the Ornate Frames dies. Add a thin strip of Foam Adhesive Sheet to the top and bottom of the sentiment and add to the bottom center of the angel.

Add the bow with a glue dot.

Bend the band around the card making sure that the band can be pulled off and on the card. Adhere the band ends together with Tear & Tape. Adhere the angel piece to the band. Again, use Tear & Tape to the band. Use the design of the frame to help determine the center of the angel piece. You want it to be centered on the card front.

Be Jolly for a Sketch

Welcome to the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challege #685.  We have a sketch for today.

 

I love the challenge of a sketch.  I knew as soon as I saw it that the Be Jolly stamp set would be perfect.

CCMC#685 Be Jolly  Heartwarming Hugs DSP  Seasonal Labels dies  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

Start with a card base of Real Red.  It's cut to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.

I'm using the Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper.  Add a piece of the diagonal print that measures 3 1/2 x 4 3/4.  I used the Mossy Meadow dots paper for the stripes on the card.  Cut 1/4 inches wide.  Just make sure each is long enough.  Glue the first one at a diagonal on the base, and then add the other 2 strips spacing them evenly.  Turn the card over and cut off any extra paper.

CCMC#685 Be Jolly  Heartwarming Hugs DSP  Blends  Seasonal Labels dies  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

The label is cut from Basic White using the Seasonal Labels dies.  Trim off the very top of the label, but leave enough to add the sentiment.  The saying is from Be Jolly.  Stamp in Real Red on a 1/2 inch scrap.  Glue to the top of the label.  Add to the card with dimensionals.

Stamp the Santa in Memento Black on Basic White.  Color with Blends.  I used the Ivory, Light Petal Pink, Real Red Combo, and Smoky Slate Combo.  I added some Light Smoky Slate to the lines on the beard and then used the Color Lifter to soften the color.  Fussy cut the Santa and add him with dimensionals.

Embellish with some of the Wonderful Gems.

CCMC #685 Be Jolly  Inside of Card  Seasonal Labels Dies  Heartwarming Hugs DSP  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

The inside is all from Be Jolly.  Stamp a different Santa inside and color with Blends.

Isn't this card cute!  I love how it turned out.  It's one of those that came out on paper just the way I saw it in my head.

Thanks for looking at my post today!

Textured Christmas Season

I think the Christmas Season bundle is my favorite in the Mini Catalog.  It's so traditional.  I'm that kind of girl.

Christmas Season  Tasteful Textile  Seasonal labels dies  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

I've paired the Christmas Season bundle with the Christmas to Remember stamp set.  It's full of wonderful Christmas sayings.  

The card base is Evening Evergreen measuring 4 1/4 x 11, score and fold at 5 1/2.  Now cut a layer of Crumb Cake that measures 4 x 5 1/4.  The Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper is beautiful.  I've picked a design with pine cones.  Cut it to 2 3/4 x 4.  Glue to the bottom of the Crumb Cake layer.  Add a piece of Early Espresso right across the center of the card with glue.  It's cut to 1/2 x 4.  Now, here is the key to the card.  Run this complete layer through the Cut & Emboss Machine with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder.  It works miracles!  Glue the layer to the base of the card.

Christmas Season  Seasonal Labels dies  Christmas Season bundle  Painted Christmas DSP  Tasteful Textiles EF  Close Up  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

The label in the center of the card is cut using the Seasonal Labels dies and Basic White.  Stamp the saying from Christmas to Remember in Real Red and add to the center of the card with dimensionals.

On Basic White stamp, using Christmas Season, stamp 2 smaller pine cones in Crumb Cake and Early Espresso, 2 leaf fronds in Evening Evergreen, and berries in Real Red.  One of the pine cones is glued at the top of the label on the base of the card.  The other is glued to the left top of the label.  Add the leaves, one at the top and the other at the bottom.  I have them facing in opposite directions.  I did put some smaller pieces of dimensionals under the leaves where they extend over the label.  I did that for the pine cone as well.  Add the berries with leaves.

Finish the card with some Red Rhinestones Basic Jewels.

Here is the inside of the card.  The saying is from Christmas to Remember.  Stamp a pine cone and berries.

I think you could crank several of these out without a lot of trouble.  I usually send well over a 100 cards so that's important to me.  I want something that looks really good, but simple is good too.

NC Blog Hop for September Teepee Christmas Card

Welcome to the NC Blog Hop for September.  Our theme is trash to treasure.  Sorry, I couldn't get into that so I have a card that does need something Stampin' Up! does not sell.  I did get it at the Dollar Tree so maybe that will qualify.  The Dollar Tree is a great place to find treasures! 

Join us blog

I've been making some teepee cards.  See this post for a video on making these cards.  

Since I've linked you to a video, I'm going to give you pictures and supplies.  Here is my teepee Christmas card featuring the Be Jolly stamp set.

Isn't this cute!!!  You'll need

3 pieces of Mossy Meadow measuring 4 x 4.  Use your Paper Trimmer to score each piece diagonally once.

2 pieces of Heartwarming Hugs measuring 3 7/8 x 3 7/8.  Cut both of these diagonally once.  You'll only use three of these pieces.

1 piece of Basic White measuring 3 7/8 x 3 7/8.  Cut once diagonally.

So, I think you have what you would need to make this card.  What else did I need?  This type of card needs something to close the card when you have it standing.  Use either small magnets or velcro rounds.  I had no idea where to look for these in my craft room and no time.  I checked out Amazon and of course they are there.  I didn't want to wait even for next day delivery.  Yes, the Dollar Tree had both!  For the Christmas card, I used velcro.  If you do use the magnets, the ones I got did not have adhesive on them.  I used Tear & Tape to cover the side.

I appreciate your time today.  Please take the entire hop.  NC has very talented stampers!  You'll love the ideas that you get.  Amanda is up next!

Beauty of the Earth DSP and Welcoming Woods

Welcome to the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #683.  This week we have a sketch.

CCMC683

I chose to use the Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper for my card and the Welcoming Woods stamp set.

CCMC #683 Welcoming Woods  Beauty of the Earth DSP  Glimmer Organdy Ribbon  Happy Holly-Days  Jo Anne Hewins

Begin with a card base of Thick Basic White 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored and folded at 4 1/4.

Cut the blue paper with the trees the same size as the card front, 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  Be careful of the directionality of the paper.  Cut a piece of the blue designer paper with the Seasonal Labels dies.  Stamp this piece with the Welcoming Woods dies.  I did set this up on the Stamparatus.  Stamp in Early Espresso.  Using a Blending Brush add some Night of Navy ink to the edges of this layer.  Use an Embossing Buddy over this layer.  Stamp the snowflakes in Versamark.  Emboss in white from the Basics Embossing Powders.  Add this layer near the bottom left with dimensionals.

Add a piece of Tear & Tape and add some of the Glitter Organdy Ribbon making little ridges with the ribbon.

The saying is from the Happy Holly-Days stamp set.  Stamp in navy on Basic White.  Notch the ends.  Glue to the panel.

CCMC #683 Welcoming Woods  Close Up  Beauty of the Earth DSP  Seasonal Labels dies  Wonderful Snowflakes by Jo Anne Hewins

Color some of the Wonderful Snowflakes (2) with Night of Navy ink.  I used a sponge dauber.  Sponge glue onto the back of the snowflake and glue to the card.  Trim even with the card base.
