Field & Flower Simple Card

I have one super easy card for you today using the Flower & Field Designer Series Paper, a free choice when you purchase $50 of Stampin' Up! product.  This paper is beautiful!  

Flower & Field Simple Card by Jo Anne Hewins

Start with a card base of Cherry Cobbler that is 4 1/4 x 11, score and fold at 5 1/2.

The Basic Black layer is 3 7/8 x 5 1/8.  The patterned paper is 3 3/4 x 5.

Cut a label from Cherry Cobbler using the Stitched So Sweetly dies and glue to the center of the card.

For the next labels, I used the new Double Oval Punch.  The scalloped oval is punch in Basic Black.  You could actually punch that from the center of the Basic Black layer already cut.  It would be covered by the Field & Flower paper.

Flower & Field Simple Card Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

Add a loop of the Bumblebee 2020 In Color Ribbon with glue dots in the center of the cherry label.

Stamp the saying from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Cherry Cobbler on white.  Punch this with the Double Oval Punch.  Add each layer with dimensionals.

Finish with some of the white Elegant Faceted Gems.

Flower & Field Simple Card Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

Here is the inside of the card.  The saying is from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set.  Can you guess why I put it on a scalloped oval?  Of course, I messed up stamping it the first time!

Add some of the designer paper cut to 1 x 3 3/4 to the bottom.

Flower & Field Simple Card Made by Jo Anne Hewins

Thanks so much for joining me.  This card is a great way to use your designer paper.  Are you afraid to cut your paper?  It's not too pretty to cut.  It's too pretty to leave in a pack!  Use it.  I'm preaching to myself!!!

Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle - It's Addicting!

I can't seem to stop using the Celebrate Sunflowers bundle.  You might wonder how many sunflower cards you can make, but it's not just sunflowers.  I'll link to some of my other sunflower posts a little later.  First here is my card for today.

Celebrate Sunflowers NC Swap Card by Jo Anne Hewins

This card has a base of Thick Whisper White measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, score, and fold at 4 1/4.  Run the front of the card through your die cutting machine with the new Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder.

Using the Stitched Nested labels, cut a label from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper and glue toward the left of the card.

Stamp the large sunflower on Whisper White in Gray Granite ink.  Color the center of the flower with a Dark Mango Melody Blend.  Highlight parts of the flower with a Light Gray Granite Blend.  Cut out using the Sunflowers dies.  This die might be a little hard to place easily.  I've found that if I look for the petals that lean to the right, I can match that.  It's right at the area that has the petals leaning near the center of the flower.  I actually added a little dot with my Sharpie there on the die.  Add to the card on dimensionals.

Celebrate Sunflowers NC Swap Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

Stamp 3 leaves in Gray Granite and color with a Light Old Olive Blend.  Cut with the dies.  Cut 2 of the detailed leaves from Old Olive card stock.  Add the leaves just under the sunflower with glue dots.

The saying is from the Lovely You stamp set.  Stamp in Old Olive on white and fussy cut.  The ribbon is from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack.  Fussy cut with snips.  To attach, run a line of Stampin' Seal about 1 1/2 inches long.  Zigzag the ribbon over the seal.  Add the saying with dimensionals.

Complete the front on the card by adding some of the 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots.  Let me say here that there has been an issue with these dots coming apart.  I made this card as a swap and although the dots were intact when sent, they had come apart in shipping.  I did fine that you can add a tiny dot of glue and glue the dome back on.  Stampin' Up! is aware and are working on this.  If you have defective dots, call Stampin' Up! or contact your demonstrator.

Celebrate Sunflowers NC Swap Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

For the inside add a sentiment from the Lovely You stamp set in Old Olive ink.  Stamp the small sunflower on white scrap and color with the Dark Mango Melody blend and the Light Old Olive Blend.  Cut out with the Sunflower dies and add to the inside of the card.  I did this as a cut out because the blends would bleed to the back of the card.

Here is a video showing how to make this project.  I hope it helps!

Forever Flourishing Dies Make a Great Background

As part of the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge I'll be featuring the Forever Flourishing dies.  We have a color challenge using Purple Posy, Night of Navy, and Coastal Cabana.

CCMC615

The Forever Flourishing dies are so pretty and intricate.  There are beautiful leaf fronds.  Just look at this background made using the cut outs from these dies.

CCMC #615 Forever Fern Dies by Jo Anne Hewins

The base for this card is Night of Navy that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.

The next layer is Coastal Cabana cut to 3 7/8 x 5 1/8.

The Whisper White layer is 3 3/4 x 5.  Cut 2 of each color frond.  I used a different frond for each color of Purple Posy, Night of Navy, and Coastal Cabana.  Place the cut outs on the white layer until you have them just where you want them.  Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere each one.  Just squirt some of the glue on a Silicone Craft Sheet.  Use a sponge to add glue to the back of each cut out.  Be careful not to move the cut out while gluing so you don't get glue on the front.

Adhere the white layer to the Coastal Cabana one.

Color a 5 1/2 inch length of Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding with a Dark Night of Navy Blend.  Add across the card just a little below center and tape to the back.

CCMC #615 Forever Flourishing Dies Close Up By Jo Anne Hewins

The saying is from the Forever Fern stamp set.  Stamp in Night of Navy on Whisper White.  Cut out with the Stitched Shapes dies.  Add to the card with dimensionals.  Color Basic Rhinestones with the Dark Night of Navy Blend, let dry, and add to the label.

Color more of the seam binding and tie a bow.  Add to the card with a glue dot.

For the inside of the card, the saying is from the Forever Fern set stamped in Night of Navy.  Add a few more fronds.

CCMC #615 Forever Flourishing Dies Inside of Card by Jo Anne Hewins

The Forever Fern stamp set and the Forever Flourishing dies can be purchased as a bundle for a savings of 10%.  I believe that this bundle will be one of the most popular from the catalog.  The stamps, not featured here, are a distinktive set meaning that it has a lot of detail without much effort.  It really is a must have bundle.  The order number is 154094 and can be found on page 174.  I highly recommend it.
