Snowflake Wishes and a Touch of Gold

Welcome to the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.  This week we have a sketch challenge #633.

CCMC633

Here is my card.  I'm using the Snowflake Wishes bundle.

CCMC #633 Snowflake Wishes by Jo Anne Hewins

The Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper has made a reappearance this fall.  It was in the Holiday Mini last fall.  I'm so glad that it's back because it is beautiful and I have a great excuse to use the rest of my pack!

Start this card with a base of Thick Very Vanilla that measures 4 1/4 x 11.  Score at 5 1/2 and fold.  

The largest piece of designer paper is 3 x 4 1/2.  Place in the center of the card front.  The star paper down the left side measures 3/4 x 4.  The stripe piece all the way across is 1/2 x 4 1/4.  For a piece like this, I use my grid paper to help me glue it on straight.  It's 2 inches from the bottom of the card.

Cut the label using the Stitched Nested Labels dies.  Use Very Vanilla.  Trim off the point on the left.

Stamp the saying from Wrapped in Christmas in Versamark.  Cover with Gold Emboss Powder and then heat with the Heat Tool.  Stamp the snowflake in Pretty Peacock.  Stamp off.  The saying is from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set.  Add to the card with dimensionals.

CCMC#633 Snowflake Wishes Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

Use the So Many Snowflakes dies, to cut snowflakes.   Add the Adhesive Sheets on the back of the Gold Foil card stock and on the back of the Pretty Peacock card stock before cutting the snowflakes.  Add the snowflakes.  The gold snowflakes peeking out from the bottom was cut in half.  The gold snowflake that is partially on the tag has some dimensional pieces under the part that hangs over.  It's an easy card to make.

CCMC#633 Snowflake Wishes Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

Here is the inside of the card.  All of it comes from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set.  Stamp the saying in Pretty Peacock.  Add snowflakes.  Some are stamped and some are stamped off.

Friday Tutorial Wrapped in Christmas

Are you ready for another FREE Friday Tutorial from the Tutorial Medley group?  Today I have my offering to the group for October using the Wrapped in Christmas stamp set.  This set is found on page 11 of the August-December Mini catalog.  It's an all sayings set.  Here is the card.

Tutorial Medley October Wrapped in Christmas

Besides the Wrapped in Christmas stamp set, the Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper and the Stitched Triangles dies were also used.

I bet you would like all the details so here you go.

Supplies:

Stamp Sets: Wrapped in Christmas (153481)

Cardstock: Night of Navy (100867), Old Olive (100702), Whisper White (100730), Early Espresso (119686)

Ink: Night of Navy (147110), Real Red (147084)

Tools & Accessories: Stitched Rectangles dies (151820), Stitched Triangles dies (152710), Layering Circles dies (151770), Stamparatus (146276), All the Trimmings Embellishments (153540), Real Red Braided Linen Trim (153546), Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430), Multipurpose Liquid Glue (110755)

Designer Paper: Trimming the Town DSP (153491)

 

Measurements:

Card Base: Night of Navy 5 ½ x 8 ½, score at 4 ¼

Cardstock #2: Old Olive 4 x 5 ¼

Designer Paper #1: Trimming the Town stripe 3 7/8 x 5 1/8, scrap of Old Olive diagonal stripe

 

Instructions:

Line up the Trimming the Town DSP layer in the Stamparatus so that the saying from Wrapped in Christmas can be hinge stamped down the left side of the paper. Stamp in Night of Navy. You might need to stamp more than once to get a good dark image.

Run a length of the Real Red Braided Trim around this layer near the bottom and tie in a knot. An alternative would be to add a length of the trim across the bottom of the layer and secure to the back. Tie a 2 inch piece of the trim around the one that goes across to look like a knot.

Use the Stitched Triangles dies to cut out a tree from the Old Olive diagonal stripe designer paper. Use the third triangle from the tall group.

Using the Stitched Rectangles dies cut the thinnest rectangle in Early Espresso cardstock using the smallest rectangle in the skinny group of four. Cut part of this away and add to the bottom of the triangle to make a trunk.

Add the tree to the card with dimensionals.

Using the All the Trimmings Embellishments, add a star at the top of the tree and the red dots.

Stamp the saying from Wrapped in Christmas in Real Red on a Whisper White scrap. Cut it out using the Layering Circles dies. Add to the card with dimensionals. Make sure that the dimensionals are not over the braided trim so the circle will lie flat.

Add some of the white circles from the embellishment pack.

Friday Tutorial Gnome for the Holidays

I used to be a collector of gnomes.  Have you ever heard of Tom Clark?  He's a local to North Carolina sculptor.  At one time he was super popular in the world of gnomes.  I still have many of his works, but I'm not so much a collector anymore.  In fact, I wouldn't mine turning a few of these loose.  The tutorial from the Tutorial Medley group that I have for you today uses the stamp set Gnome for the Holidays.  This is not a set that I purchased, so I'm happy to share this sample with you today.

Snowflake Wishes and the Trimming the Town DSP

Welcome to the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #631.  Today we have a sketch.

CCMC631

Here is the card that I made using the Snowflake Wishes bundle.

CCMC #631 Snowflake Wishes Bundle Card by Jo Anne Hewins

This is a simple sketch, but isn't the card cute!

The base is Thick Whisper White 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored and folded at 4 1/4.

This card uses the Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper.  The blue stripe is cut to fit the front of the base.  Cut at 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  Glue this down.  The Multipurpose Liquid Glue will allow you a little give to position the paper just right.

The next layer is the Real Red swirly paper.  It is cut to 3 x 4 1/4.

The blue stripe is cut again in a different direction to 1/2 x 4 1/4.

The green paper measures 3/4 x 3 1/8.

Finally the snowflake paper is 2 x 2 1/2.

Cut the snowflakes using the So Many Snowflakes dies.  Add part of an Adhesive Sheet to the back of Whisper White cardstock.  Cut 1 larger and 2 smaller snowflakes.  Add the large one to the center of the snowflake paper.  Add the other 2 to each side.  These will go off the side.  The Adhesive Sheet turns the snowflakes into stickers.

The saying is from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set.  Stamp in Misty Moonlight ink and fussy cut around the words.  Glue.

CCMC#631 Snowflake Wishes Bundle Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

This is the inside of the card.  The saying is from Snowflake Wishes stamped in Misty Moonlight.  Stamp the snowflakes in Misty Moonlight and some in stamped off ink.
