Shaded Summer and the Sale-a-Bration Offering Summer Shadows Dies

Shaded Summer is a fantastic stand alone stamp set in the Annual catalog on page 75.  The sayings are wonderful.  Well, bam! beginning August 3rd you can earn the Summer Shadow Dies that coordinate with Sale-a-Bration.  All you need is a $100 order.  On my Facebook Live this week I featured these products with some really cute samples.  Let me say that I was inspired by some of the samples in the Sale-a-Bration brochure.

Shaded Summer Facebook Live 7.21

Here is the video!  I hope you'll watch it and share if you want, too.

 

Shaded Summer Facebook Live 7.21.2021 White emboss Resist by Jo Anne Hewins

For this card the base is Smoky Slate.  Stamp around the outside with the largest flower stamp in Versamark.  The patterned paper is from the Peaceful Place Designer Series Paper available in the August-December Mini catalog.   It's cut to 3 x 4.  That's a great size to make 12 cards from one sheet of 12 x 12.

Use Petal Pink, Coastal Cabana, and Highland Heather for the flowers stems.  Stamp in Versamark and emboss with white embossing powder from the Basics Embossing Powders collection.  Use a Blending Brush to add more color toward the center of each stem.  Wipe away any extra color on the embossed part.  Cut out with the dies and glue to the card front.

Add twine from the Baker's Twine Essentials Pack.  The saying is embossed in white and added with dimensionals.  

Finish with Metallic Pearls.

Shaded Summer Facebook Live 7.21.2021 Gold Foil by Jo Anne Hewins

The card base is Merry Merlot.  Stamp around the outside of the base with the smaller group of stems in Merry Merlot.  The patterned paper is from the Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper cut to 3 x 4.

Stamp the large stamp in Merry Merlot and cut out with the dies.  Add with dimensionals.

Cut some of the flowers and leaves in Gold Foil.  Place around the merlot stem.

Stamp the saying in Merry Merlot.  Add with dimensionals.

Finish with Metallic Pearls.

Shaded Summer Facebook Live 7.21.2021 SAB dies by Jo Anne Hewins

The base is Mint Macaron cut to 4 1/4 x 11 and scored at 5 1/2.  Use the Pretty Flowers EF on the front of the card.  The patterned paper is from the Hand-Penned DSP.  It's cut to 3 x 4.

Cut flowers using Pale Papaya and Calypso Coral.  Cut the leaves from Mint Macaron and add as you please.

The saying is stamped in Calypso Coral and cut out with the Potted Succulents dies.  Add with dimensionals.

Finish with the Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins.

Nature's Harvest and a CASE of the Catalog page 114

Hi!  It's Thursday and you know what that means.  It's the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #674.  This week we are casing the catalog from page 114.

CCMC674

I'm glad we are doing these challenges based on samples from the catalog.  Sometimes we forget just how inspirational our catalog can be.  I love this card and I also love the one that I made, too.

CCMC #674 Nature's Harvest Card by Jo Anne Hewins

I've already sent this one to a friend of mine that suffered a loss last week.

The base of the card is Thick Basic White 4 1/4 x 11, scored and folded at 5 1/2.

We have 3 layers that are butted up against each other on the front of the card.  The first one is Calypso Coral Card Stock.  It measures 1 1/2 x 5 3/8.  The next is designer paper from the Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper.  Cut this one to 1 1/2 x 5 3/8 as well.  The last section is Basic White Card Stock cut to 1 1/8 x 5 3/8.  Run this piece through the Cut & Emboss Machine with the Stitched Greenery die.  I love that die!

Next comes a piece of Vellum Card Stock cut to 3 x 4 1/4.  Rub the surface with an Embossing Buddy and then stamp the largest stamp from Nature's Harvest in Versamark in the center of the vellum.  Cover with white embossing powder from the Basics Embossing Powders group.  Melt with the Heat Tool.  Put glue dots on the back behind the embossing so that it will not show.

CCMC #674 Nature's Harvest Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

Tie a bow with the gold cord from the Simply Elegant Trim pack.  Add to the card with a glue dot.

The saying is from the Plentiful Plants stamp set.  Stamp in Versamark and emboss in gold using the Metallics Embossing Powders.  Add with dimensionals on each end.

CCMC #674 Nature's Harvest Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

For the inside, the saying is from Nature's Harvest.  Gold emboss the saying as well as the flower stems.

CCMC #674 Nature's Harvest Project by Jo Anne Hewins

I have to say it again.  This is a pretty card.  I need to remember this lay out!

Plentiful Plants and a Sketch

Plants make me happy.  I mean green is my favorite color.  My whole house inside is green.  My craft room is painted Pear Pizzazz.  It's really bright, but it makes me happy!  Today's post for the Create with Connie and Mary is a sketch challenge.

Ccmc668

Here is my card using the Plentiful Plants bundle.

CCMC #668 Plentiful Plants by Jo Anne Hewins

This is a busy card, but I still like it a lot.  Start with a card base of Garden Green 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  

Run the front of the card through the Cut & Emboss Machine with the brand new Macrame Embossing Folder.  To do this you'll need to run the embossing folder through with the seam of the folder on the side.  BE CAREFUL!  You don't want to ruin your folder.

Use the Stitched Rectangle dies and the Bloom Where You Are Planted Designer Series Paper to make the 2 thin rectangles.  Use the 2nd largest of the group of 4 dies.

You'll need a piece of Basic White that measures 2 1/2 x 3 1/4.  Add a piece of the Paper Lattice.  I used my Craft Sheet and a sponge to add glue to the back.  Trim around the white layer.

The plants are cut from the Bloom Where You Are Planted DSP.

Add the white panel and designer paper panels with dimensionals.  Add the plants with dimensionals as well.

CCMC #668 Plentiful Plants Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

The saying is stamped on a piece of 1/2 basic white in Evening Evergreen.  Glue to the card.

CCMC #668 Plentiful Plants Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

Here is the inside of the card.  The saying is again from Plentiful Plants.  The plant is cut from the designer paper.

NC Demo Blog Hop for May Something Old, Something New

Welcome to the NC Demo Blog Hop for May.  Of course we want to share items from our new annual catalog, but we want to share some of the new with some of the old.  I'm so glad you are here.  You might have come from Amy's blog or you might be starting here.  It doesn't matter.  Just be sure to visit all of us!

Join us blog

I feel like my pairing on old and new is a no brainer.  I'll be using the new Daisy Garden background stamp with the Daisy Lane stamp set.  We'll go over these two cards.

NC Demo Blog Hop for May Daisy Garden Cards by Jo Anne Hewins

I've pulled in a few more supplies, too.

NC Demo Blog Hop for May Daisy Garden and Daisy Lane by Jo Anne Hewins

The first card begins with a base of Soft Succulent that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored and folded at 4 1/4.

The So Saffron card stock is cut to 4 x 5 1/4.

The designer paper is from the Bloom Where You're Planted Designer Series Paper.  It measures 3 7/8 x 5 1/8.

Line the stamp set up in the Stamparatus.  With a big set like this, I like to stamp the stamp on my Stamparatus grid paper.  This shows me where the stamp is and I can line up my paper to be just where I want it.  Secure with a tiny dab of Seal.  Touch it several times with your fingers to take away a little of the sticky.  You want to be able to pull up the paper without mishap.  Stamp in Memento Black.

Adhere all layers.

NC Demo Blog Hop for May Daisy Garden and Daisy Lane Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

For the tag choose another of the designer papers from the same pack.  This one looks a little like white brick.  Cut the largest tag using the Tailor Made Tags dies.  Stamp the stem of the daisy from Daisy Lane in Memento Black.  Color in with the Dark Soft Succulent Blend.  I really think that the Light Soft Succulent Blend would look better.

Stamp two of the small daisy on Basic White.  Use Memento Black.  Punch out with the Medium Daisy Punch.  Curl the petals of the daisies with your Bone Folder.  Curl one up and one down.  Glue the center of the curled down on top of the one curled up.  Add the daisy to the tag with a dimensional.  Fluff up a little.

Add the tag to the card front with dimensionals.

Color some of the White Crinkled Seam Binding with the Dark So Saffron Blend.  Tie into a bow and add with a glue dot.

Stamp the word FRIEND in So Saffron on a white scrap and trim around it.  Add with dimensionals.

NC Demo Blog Hop for May Daisy Garden and Tasteful Touches Project by Jo Anne Hewins

For my second card, begin with a base of Thick Basic White 4 1/4 x 11.  Score and fold at 5 1/2.

The black dotted paper is from the Pattern Party Designer Series Paper.  It is offered at the back of the catalog in the Host Rewards section.  Cut this to 4 x 5 1/4.  

Add the paper to the Stamparatus and stamp, this time with Versamark.  First rub over the paper with an Embossing Buddy (no longer sold by SU) or a used dryer sheet.  Cover with white emboss powder and melt with the Heat Tool.  Stampin' Up! has changed how embossing powders can be purchased.  The Basics Pack comes with White, Black, and Clear.

Add the layer to the base of the card.

NC Demo Blog Hop for May Daisy Garden and Tasteful Touches Card by Jo Anne Hewins

Stamp the saying from Tasteful Touches on white with Versamark.  Add black embossing powder and heat.  Cut this out with the Meadow dies.  Tie around using white twine from the Baker's Twine Essentials Pack.

NC Demo Blog Hop for May Inside of Card by Jo Anne Hewins

Here is an inside for the cards.  For the second card I did use a saying from the Tasteful Touches stamp set.

NC Demo Blog Hop for may Daisy Garden Duo by Jo Anne Hewins

I think the old and the new work quite well with these cards.  It's like they were made for each other!  LOL!

The background stamps make easy cards that look way harder.  Using the Stamparatus makes sure you have great images since you can stamp it again if needed.

Thanks so much for going on the hop.  You are ready to hop right on over to Toni's blog.  I know you'll find lots of inspiration!  It's always fun to spice up your collection with a few new items!  They'll work great together!

Facebook Live 5.26.2021 Plentiful Plants

Thanks for joining me today.  For my Facebook Live, I used the Plentiful Plants bundle with the Perfect Plants dies.  I don't know about you, but I am a lover of plants.  Watering them might be a different story.  These plants need no water to look perfect.  Here are the cards we made.

Facebook Live 5.26.2021 Plentiful Plants by Jo Anne Hewins

I'll give you a few details for each card and then the video.

Facebook Live 5.26.2021 Plentiful Plants with Macrame EF by Jo Anne Hewins

The card base is Thick Basic White 4 1/4 x 11, score and fold at 5 1/2.

Run through the Cut & Emboss machine with the Macrame 3D Embossing Folder.

Use the Bloom Where You're Planted Designer Series Paper for the pots and plants.  There are pages in the pack that cut right out with the Perfect Plants dies.  I did fussy cut the smallest plant.  Assemble using dimensionals and glue in the lower right corner.

The saying is on a half inch piece of Basic White stamped in Evening Evergreen.  Notch the end.

Facebook Live 5.26.2021 Plentiful Plants Brick Wall by Jo Anne Hewins

For the second card the base is Garden Green 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, score and fold at 4 1/4.

The Basic White layer is 3 3/4 x 5.  Cut the label from the center of this layer using the Tasteful Labels dies.

The dotted paper is from the Pattern Party Designer Series Paper.  It measures 3 5/8 x 4 7/8.  This paper is in the back of the catalog where you find the Host Rewards.

Add the white label to the center of the card.

Stamp all of the pieces for the plants of Basic White.  The pot is Cinnamon Cider, the dotty plants are Pool Party, the larger leaves are Garden Green, and the smaller leaves are Evening Evergreen.  Cut using the Perfect Plants dies.  Assemble and then add to the label with dimensionals.

Stamp the saying in Garden Green and trim.  Add to the card.

Add some of the Pool Party Artistry Bloom Adhesive-Backed Sequins.

Facebook Live 5.26.2021 Plentiful Plants Hanging Basket by Jo Anne Hewins

Card three was inspired by the card on page 80 with the brick paper from the Bloom Where You're Planted DSP.

Card base is Cinnamon Cider 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, score and fold at 4 1/4.

Cut brick paper to 4 1/4 x 4 7/8.  Cut at an angle so that the right side is 4 inches.  Add a liner of Soft Succulent at the top and bottom.  Add to the card.

Use the Perfect Plants dies to cut the white pot, Cinnamon Cider plant hanger,  Soft Succulent (2) and Evening Evergreen plants.  Assemble.  There are helpful hints on the video.  Add the plant with dimensionals.  Use a Matte Black Dot for a hanger.

Stamp the words in Evening Evergreen on white, fussy cut, and add to the card with dimensionals.

 

So here is the video.  Enjoy.  Please share if you know someone who might want to see it.  Thanks so much.
