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.

Nature's Harvest and a CASE of the Mini Catalog page 54

Whenever I get one of those wonderful UPS boxes full of new stamp sets, dies, and embellishments, I go into full on shock.  I don't know how to describe the feeling, but I can't make anything.  I think it's too much stimulus.  One of the best ways for me to get out of that is to used my catalogs.  They are so full of beautiful samples.  With an idea already there, I find I can get the mojo going even if I do change a few things.  Today's card was inspired by page 54 of the August-December Mini Catalog.  Here is my card.

Nature's Harvest Card by Jo Anne Hewins

The base of this card is Bumblebee cut to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.

Use the Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper to cut strips for the card front.  You'll need 5 patterns cut to 1 x 5.  Glue these to the card front.  Mine are leaning here and there for a little interest.

You'll need a piece of Basic White that measures 2 3/4 x 3 1/4.  Stamp the flowers from Nature's Harvest in Crumb Cake ink.  The saying, from the same set, is stamped in Misty Moonlight.  Add this panel a little askew with dimensionals.  Add about 4 inches of the Diamond Weave Ribbon along the lower edge of this panel.

Nature's Harvest by Jo Anne Hewins

I don't usually use retired items on my blog post, but the embellishments here are retired.  They were laying on my table and the blue looked so pretty.  Please forgive me.  I would say that the embellishments on page 55, the Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots would look great on this card!

Nature's Harvest Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

For the inside I stamped the largest flower image in Crumb Cake.

DELICATE DAHLIAS PHOTOPOLYMER STAMP SET (ENGLISH)

Isn't it a beautiful set?  Just wait until you see it in action.

I'm going to go ahead and post the video first and I'll details and more pictures following.

 

I hope you enjoyed the video.  Please consider subscribing to my YouTube channel.  I would love that and you'll know when I release a new one.

Delicate Dahlias for Facebook Live 8.18.2021 by Jo Anne Hewins

For my first card, the base is Evening Evergreen 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  The patterned paper is from the Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper.  It's cut to 4 x 5 1/4.  

I used Calypso Coral, Real Red, and Cherry Cobbler for my flower.  I show you how I did it on the video.  For the leaves use Pear Pizzazz and Evening Evergreen.  The leaves and flower are cut out with our snips and added to the card with dimensionals.  The saying is on a 1/2 inch piece of Basic White scrap.  I used the Gold Shimmer Ribbon from the Mini catalog to tie a knot.  Add with glue dots.  Finish with some of the Gilded Gems.

I did show how to use the masking technique for the inside of the card.

Delicate Dahlias in Blackberry for Facebook Live 8.18. 2021 by Jo Anne Hewins

I just love the colors for this card.  I used Blackberry Bliss and Granny Apple Green.

Begin with a base of Thick Basic White of 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, score and fold at 4 1/4.  Again I used the masking technique for this card.  

When creating your own background it's best to begin with your largest image and work down to the smallest.

Use the Scalloped Contours dies for the panel.

Finish the card with some of the Basic Rhinestones.

Delicate Dahlias by Jo Anne Hewins for Facebook Live 8.18.2021 Card

This is the last card.  The colors used are Fresh Freesia, Highland Heather, Gorgeous Grape, and Granny Apple Green.

Hand-Penned Petals Card for You

I wanted to share this card with you today showing the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set and the Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper.  It's so easy to make pretty cards using them.  And, the Hand-Penned DSP is one of the papers that is 15% off during the Designer Series Paper Sale going on during until August 2nd.  More on that at the end of the post.

Hand Penned Card by Jo Anne Hewins

Start with a base of Mint Macaron that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  You'll need another layer of Mint Macaron that is 4 1/8 x 5 3/8.  Run it through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine with the Tasteful Textiles 3D Embossing Folder.  Adhere.

The designer paper is from the Hand-Penned pack.  That pack of paper is just so beautiful.  It reminds me of my grandmother.  She loved small print flowers.  For this card cut it at 2 x 5 1/2.  Add to the center of the card.  I use my Grid Paper to help me  get the paper centered and straight.

Cut the mint striped paper using the Stitched So Sweetly dies.  Add to the center of the card with dimensionals.

Hand Penned Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

Stamp the largest flower stamp on Basic White.  We'll only used part of this.  I just fussy cut it, but you can use the Penned Flowers dies if you wish.  You'll need to cut the rest with your Paper Snips.  I used the Pale Papaya and the Mint Macaron Combo Blends to color.  Stamp just the top large leaves three more times, color, and cut.  All around the striped paper.

For the tag cut the use the smallest tag in Basic White and stamp the saying in Mint Macaron.  Color some of the White Crinkled Seam Binding with the Dark Mint Macaron Blend.  Tie a bow and add with a glue dot.

Hand Penned Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

For the inside just stamp the largest flower stamp in Memento Black.

One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop for September You've Got This

Welcome to the One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop for September.  Our theme this month is "You've Got This!"  I'm go glad you have joined us today.  We hop on the second Thursday of each month.  This group is filled with very talented stampers and I know that you'll love every project.  Be sure that you visit all of the blogs.

I must admit that this was a hard challenge for me.  I decided to go with school.  I am a retired first grade teacher.  My daughter  is a high school art teacher.  She is teaching art virtually here in the beginning due to a certain virus that we will not name.  She is having a tough time learning new programs.  I know that it won't take long until it is all easy for her.  She'll wonder why she was so worried.  She does have this!  Jessie is a wonderful caring teacher.  Here is my card.

OSAT September You've Got That! by Jo Anne Hewins

I wanted my card to have a blackboard look to it.  Start with a card base of Thick Whisper White that measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and scored and folded at 4 1/4. 

Cut a piece of Soft Suede paper to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  This paper is from the Neutrals 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper.  It does have a wood look to it.  Glue it down.  Trim any that is sticking out.  Turn the card over and trim from the back.  If there should be a thin line of Whisper White that isn't covered, trim the card down to fit.

Cut a piece of Basic Black cardstock with the 3rd rectangle in of the Stitched Rectangle dies.  Stamp the saying "Time for a new adventure." over the surface of the black piece.  Use the Uninked Stampin' Pad and Whisper White Refill.  This saying is from the Well Said stamp set.

Cut a frame from Poppy Parade paper from the Brights 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper.   I used the 2nd and 4th rectangles in from the outside of the Stitched Rectangle dies.  Add this frame around the black panel.  I used the Foam Adhesive Strips for this.  You might also choose the brand new Foam Adhesive Sheets.

OSAT September You've Got That! Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

The letters are made using the Playful Alphabet dies.  Use the Bumblebee paper from the 2020-2022 In Color 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper.  Back the paper with the Foam Adhesive Sheets.  You can cut all of the letters at once.  This set has duplicates of some of the letters.  To add the letters, line the card up with the lines on the Grid Paper.  I laid a ruler across the frame and added the letters.  For the second row, you can see that I didn't have quite enough room for both words.  It's probably best to cut the G and S without the foam and add pieces of Foam Adhesive Strip.  For the word THIS start with the S and work backwards.

The stars are cut from Pacific Point (Brights) and the Stitched Stars dies.  Use the swirly piece and a few of the smaller stars.  You might need to cut these pieces twice.  Add to the card using glue or Foam Adhesive strips

OSAT September You've Got That! Card by Jo Anne Hewins

For my 3D item, I used the Mini Curvy Keepsake Box die in Basic Black cardstock. 

OSAT September You've Got That! Curvy Box 3D by Jo Anne Hewins

Stamp the saying "It's your time to shine" from the Daisy Lane stamp set on each side.  Make sure that you turn the box so that the writing will face the correct way.  Put the handle at the top when stamping.  Use the Whisper White ink again.

Cut the stars from the Poppy Parade, Pacific Point, and Bumblebee papers.  Use the Adhesive Sheets to line the back of the paper.  Cut two of the swirls from each paper.  Add a star of each color to each side of the box.

Stamp the word SHINE on a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Use the same stamp and tape off all but the last word.  Cut this out with the star tag die from Stitched Stars.  Tie on the tag with the Bumblebee Gingham Trim.
