Facebook Live 11.03.2021 Blending Brushes Ideas

I hope you saw my Facebook Live on Wednesday, but if you missed it, I've got you covered.  We made cards using different ideas with Blending Brushes.  These are pretty quick to make and I think very pretty.

I'm going to put the video here. 

 

Then I'll add a few details about each card.

 

Facebook Live 11.3.2021 Blending Brushes  Snowflake Wishes  Seasonal Labels dies  Soft Shimmer Sequins  Luv 2 Create  Jo Anne Hewins

For the first card the base is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  The Misty Moonlight layer is 4 x 5 1/5. the Basic White layer is 3 7/8 x 5 1/8.  These measurements are the same for all three cards.

Cut a piece of copy paper into 4 parts.  Use one of them to cut the shape you see in the card.  It's from the Seasonal Labels dies.  Place the mask you've made over the Basic White piece and center just as you wish.  Adhere in a way that will not mess up the cardstock.  Since my piece of copy paper is larger than the cardstock, I taped it underneath.  Any tearing will be on the back of the layer.

Use the colors Night of Navy, Misty Moonlight, and Pool Party.  Begin at the bottom with the darkest color and build on that.  When done remove the mask.

Stamp snowflakes from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set in Night of Navy.  Add the Blue Adhesive Backed Gems in the center of each snowflake.  Add the Soft Shimmer Sequins where you wish.

Facebook Live 11.3.2021 Blending Brushes  Beauty of Tomorrow  Memento Black  2021-2023 In Color Jewels  Luv 2 Create  Jo Anne Hewins

For this card I used a base of Blackberry Bliss and the next layer is Rich Razzleberry.

Draw lines lightly on the white layer using grid lines to help.  Line this off with sticky pad notes.

The colors used for this card are Blackberry Bliss, Rich Razzleberry, and Positively Pink.

The stamped images are from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set.  Stamp in Memento Black.

Embellish with the 2021-2023 In Color Jewels.

Facebook Live 11.3.2021 Blending Brushes  Love of Leaves  Matte Decorative Dots  Layering Circles dies  Luv 2 Create  Jo Anne Hewins

The base is Mossy Meadow and the second layer is Old Olive.

Use the Layering Circles to make a mask as for the first card and attach.

Blend beginning with Evening Evergreen, then Mossy Meadow, and then Old Olive.

Stamp the leaves and saying with the Love of Leaves stamp set. 

Add some of the Matte Decorative Dots.

I think that's all the information you'll need to try these projects.

Blackberry Beauty Designer Series Paper and the Ephemera Pack

Welcome to the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge # 687.  This week we have a sketch.

CCMC687

I have not used the Blackberry Beauty Designer Series Paper very much.  I think I did have something earlier in the week.  I am using this beautiful paper and the Blackberry Beauty Ephemera Pack.  With its punch outs, this pack helps to make making a card easy, quick, and gorgeous.  Here's my card.

CCMC #687 Blackberry Beauty DSP  Blackberry Beauty Ephemera Pack  Wink of Stella  Gold Foil  Banners Pick a Punch  Welcoming Woods  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

The base of this card is Rich Razzleberry 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded in half at 4 1/4.

The Blackberry Beauty DSP is cut to 3 x 5 1/2.  Use Gold Foil to add some interest at the top and bottom of this patterned paper.  I cut two pieces 3/4 x 4 1/2.  Add one to the top and one to the bottom.  I used glue and my grid paper to make sure it was all centered.  Glue all of that to the base of the card.  I had some Gold Foil left so I used a 1/4 inch to put under my focal piece.  I used the Banners Pick a Punch to punch the end of this foil.

The leaves and acorns are part of the Ephemera Pack.  Just punch it out.  I added this with dimensionals.  I also colored the entire image with Wink of Stella.  It's so pretty.  It really doesn't show in the picture.

The saying is from the Welcoming Woods stamp set.  Stamp on a scrap of Basic White and trim around with snips.  Add the sentiment with glue.

For the inside of the card the words are from Welcoming Woods.  The stem is punched from the Ephemera Pack.  Do you notice the single leaves?  I have a couple smudges on my paper somehow.  I inked up one of the leaves from the stamp that had a group of leaves.  I stamped them where I needed them.  No mistakes, just a chance to embellish, right?

So there you go.  This card was easy and fast.  It's also beautiful if I do say so myself.  Thanks for checking out the blog today.  I hope you'll try this sketch.  It would work with lots of different designer papers.

Christmas Season for Fall

Welcome to the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #686.  This week we are using Evening Evergreen, Pumpkin Pie, and Bumblebee.

CCMC686

Of course these colors are great for fall.  What better set to use than a Christmas one!  I used Christmas Season and the Seasonal Labels dies.  You can get them both together as a bundle with a 10% savings.

CCMC #686 Christmas Season for Fall  Christmas Season Bundle  Christmas Season  Seasonal Labels  Tidings of Christmas DSP  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

The base of the card is Evening Evergreen 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.

The next layer is Basic White, 3 3/4 x 5.  I cut a 1 1/4 inch piece of Evening Evergreen from the Christmas Tidings 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper.  Glue this to the white layer at a diagonal.  Trim away any excess.  Now run this layer through the Cut & Emboss Machine with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder.

The saying on the front of the card is from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set.  Stamp in Evergreen on Basic White.  Use the Tasteful Labels dies to cut this out.  It goes in the center of the card with dimensionals.  Run a length of the Linen Thread around the label.  Add a bow with a glue dot.

CC95E9~1

Stamp and cut out several of the images from Christmas Season.  I cut about 4 of 3 different fronds.  For the one with the berries, I stamped off for the stem.  Use Bumblebee for that one.  I also made stems in Evening Evergreen and Pumpkin Pie.  Arrange around the sentiment label.  Add with a glue dot down near the bottom.  Add a dimensional near the top.

Embellish the card with Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots.

I'm so glad you stopped by today.  Did you like have Christmas Season make a fall card?  It's not an original idea, but it's a good one.

Feels Like Home and Pattern Party DSP

The end of September will be here before we know it and with it goes Stampin' Up!'s second Sale-a-Bration of the year!  There are so many great offerings that you can earn for free during this time.   To see the Sale-a-Bration Brochure click here.  My card for today is the set Feels Like Home.  This is my first time inking up this set.  I love it!

Feels Like Home and Pattern Party Card by Jo Anne Hewins

I used the Pattern Party Designer Series Paper Host choice from the back of the annual catalog.  I do have a thing for black and white.

My base is Thick Basic White measuring 4 1/4 x 11 and scored at 5 1/2.  Cut the gingham patterned paper to fit the card base at 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.

Stamp the large scene stamp on a piece of the black with white dots paper from Pattern Party in Versamark.  Be sure to use an Embossing Buddy or old dryer sheet on the paper first.  Use the white embossing powder from the Basics Embossing Powders to emboss.  Cut this out using the second largest frame from the Scalloped Contours dies.  Add this panel to the center of the card on dimensionals.

Feels Like Home Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

For the sentiment, stamp on a piece of Basic White in Versamark and emboss with black embossing powder, also in the Basics pack.  Cut this out with the smallest die in Scalloped Contours.  I actually cut the die again to make the tag fit my saying a little better.

Feels Like Home Tag Collage by Jo Anne Hewins

This is really easy to do!  Add a bow to the tag using the Gold Shimmer Ribbon.  For this card I pulled the ribbon through the holes at the end and then tied the bow.  Since this doesn't really show, I recommend that you make the bow and just add it with glue dots.  That's much easier and looks the same!

Finish off the card with some of the Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots.  It's the perfect touch!

Feels Like Home Inside of Card by Jo Anne Hewins

I did emboss the saying and the pot of flowers on the inside of the card.  All are from the Feels Like Home stamp set.

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.
