One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop for March Chick Ewe Out

Welcome to the One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop for March.  Our theme of Chick Ewe Out means we are all about animals.

Image may contain: text

You may not think about bugs as being animals, but they certainly are not plants.  I bought the Wiggle Worm bundle to use for another hop.  I thought I would use it for this one as well.  It's just so cute!

OSAT March Chick Ewe Out Card by Jo Anne Hewins

I have to say that the praying mantis is my favorite bug in the set.

Start with a card base of Thick Whisper White that measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  Score and fold at 4 1/4.

I'm using the Pleased As Punch Designer Series Paper for this card.  It's only available until the end of March and it is so springy.  We need that now!  Cut the green sheet to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  This will cover the entire front of the card.  Stamp the V shapes randomly over the front of the sheet.  Stamp in Granny Apple Green.  

Add two strips of the stripes paper from the same pack.  They are 1/2 by 4 1/4.  Place them about 1/3 and 2/3 down the paper.

Glue the paper to the card front.  The Multipurpose Liquid Glue allows a little movement briefly so that you can place this paper just right.

Cut a scallop rectangle from the raindrop paper using the Stitched So Sweetly dies.  Use the second largest one.  This layer will be added with dimensionals when ready.  Cut grass from the green designer paper using the Wiggly Bugs dies and add this to the bottom of the layer.  Glue along the bottom so you can slip that bug in there.

Stamp the praying mantis in Mossy Green ink.  Stamp the outline.  Then there is a stamp to add its details.  You do need to line this up carefully.  Being photopolymer helps!  Color in the bug with a Dark Granny Apple Green blend.  Cut out with the Wiggly Bugs dies.  Add with dimensionals.

Stamp the tiny bug and its details, cut out, and glue to the upper right corner of the panel.

Use the Umbrella Builder Punch to punch out the umbrella and handle from the Pleased As Punch DSP.  Glue down the handle and add the umbrella top with dimensionals.  Tie a bow with the Whisper White Solid Baker's Twine and add with a rolled up glue dot.

OSAT March Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

The saying is from the Under My Umbrella stamp set.  Stamp in Balmy Blue and cut apart.  Add to the card.  I used glue dots for this.  

I decided that my 3D object this time would be a book mark.  I still read real books.  I'm sure many of you do too.  I hope I'm not the only dinosaur around.

OSAT March Bookmark by Jo Anne Hewins

Start with a piece of Thick Whisper White that is 2 x 6.  Glue the same size of green Pleased As Punch paper to it.  Stamp randomly with the V stamp in Granny Apple Green.  Add a 1/2 x 6 strip of striped paper down the side.  Punch the top with the Delightful Tag Topper punch.

The thread topper was made using the Whisper White Solid Baker's Twine.  I wound the thread around a stamp pad about 15 times.  Slide off carefully.  Pull all of the thread through the hole in the tag top and fold in half.  Now wrap the twine around near the fold about 10 times and tie off.  Trim the other end evenly.

Stamp a praying mantis just as for the card and glue to the card.  Cut some grass as for the card and glue to the bottom of the book mark and trim to fit.

The saying is from the Sending You Thoughts stamp set.  It's a Sale-a-Bration item!  Stamp in Granny Apple Green and cut the saying apart.  Glue to the book mark.

And here is this set together.

Color Fusers Blog Hop for March, 2020

Welcome to the Color Fusers Blog Hop for March.  This month we are using the colors Mint Macaron, Pear Pizzazz, Very Vanilla, and Soft Suede.

No photo description available.

For my card, I am using the Magnolia Blooms stamp set.  This set is located in the beginner brochure titled Experience Creativity Beginner Brochure.  They are available from Stampin' Up!  If you need one, contact me.  On with the card.

Color Fusers for March Magnolia Project by Jo Anne Hewins

The card base is Mint Macaron cut to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  I cut another layer that is 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 to stamp.  I did this because I messed up the front of the card base.  I do think having the extra layer works.  Sometimes mistakes work out well.  Stamp this layer with the words stamp from the Very Versailles stamp set.  Stamp in Pear Pizzazz.  I stamped it 4 times.  The words did run off the page.  Now stamp the leaves from Very Versailles.  This is also in Pear Pizzazz and is stamped multiple times to cover the layer.  Use a sponge dauber to sponge around the edges of this layer and to add a little brown to the front.  Use Soft Suede.  Sponge all around the card front, too.

The oval comes from the Heirloom Frames Dies & 3D Embossing Folders.  First cut the oval from Soft Suede card stock.  Then, run the oval through the corresponding embossing folder.  Add a little more Soft Suede with a sponge dauber.  Add to the center of the card with dimensionals.

Color Fusers for March Magnolia Close Up of Bottom of Card by Jo Anne Hewins

Stamp three of the flowers using Soft Suede ink on Very Vanilla card stock.  Color the centers of each with a Light Soft Suede Blend.  Use a sponge dauber to add some Soft Suede from the center of the flower.  Color the leaves with Light and Dark Mint Macaron Blends.  They will need to be fussy cut.  Add to the card with glue.  Put dimensionals under the flowers where they extend over the oval.

The saying is from Very Versailles.  Stamp in Soft Suede on Very Vanilla.  I add some stamped off words over this in Mint Macaron.  I used the large words stamp.  Sponge dauber just a little suede on it.  Fussy cut around the saying.  Use a Bone Folder to curl the saying up and down.  Add using glue dots where it is down and dimensionals where it is up.

Finish off the card with a bow.  Use the Nature's Twine Macaron twine.  Pull the strands apart from an 8" piece.  Put the pieces back together and tie into a bow.  Add with a glue dot.

For the inside of the card, use Very Vanilla.  Stamp off the sayings stamp in Pear Pizzazz and add to the top center.  The saying is from Very Versailles stamped in Soft Suede.   Add a flower to the bottom and color the same as the front.

Sponge all around in Soft Suede and add a little to the front.

Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #601 Under My Umbrella

Welcome to you!  There is a color challenge this week on the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.  We are using Purple Posy, Pretty Peacock, and Old Olive.

CCMC601

I'm using the Under My Umbrella bundle.  It has the Under My Umbrella stamp set and the Umbrella Builder Punch.  I'm so glad that Stampin' Up! has introduced so many new punches with the January-June Mini Catalog.  I love punches!  Here is my card for today.

CCMC#601 Under My Umbrella by Jo Anne Hewins

This card makes me think of spring.  I love the soft colors and crispness of the Whisper White.  Here's how to make it.

The card base is Purple Posy cut to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  The next layer is Pretty Peacock measuring 3 5/8 x 4 7/8.  Finally the Whisper White layer is 3 1/2 x 4 3/4.  Run the white layer through a die cutting machine with the Eyelet Lace Embossing Folder.

The saying for this card is from the Under My Umbrella stamp set.  Stamp in Pretty Peacock on Whisper White.  Cut out with the Stitched Rectangle dies.  Add with dimensionals.

I used the Purple Posy and Pretty Peacock paper from the Woven Threads Designer Series Paper.  Stamp the umbrella and boots on this paper in Pretty Peacock ink.  Punch out the umbrella with the Umbrella Builder Punch.  Cut out the boots with snips.

Punch out a handle from Pretty Peacock card stock.  Glue the handle to the white.  Color about 12" of Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding with a Light Purple Posy Blend.  Tie in a bow and add to the handle with a glue dot.

CCMC #601 Under My Umbrella Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

Stamp the two different larger flowers twice on a piece of Whisper White.  Stamp in Pretty Peacock.  Color these in with Light Purple Posy, Light and Dark Pretty Peacock, and Light Old Olive Blends.  Fussy cut.  Add the flower clusters to the umbrella and boots.  You might need to trim down one of the flowers to fit.  The flowers, umbrella, and boots are all added with dimensionals.

Finish off with some sequins from the Iridescent Sequin Assortment.  Some of them have a purple tint to them.

CCMC #601 Under My Umbrella Inside of Card by Jo Anne Hewins

Here's the inside of my card.  It's all part of the Under My Umbrella stamp set.  For the bottom alternate stamping the two flower clusters.  Stamp in Pretty Peacock.  Color as on the front of the card.
