Cards- Get Well

Punches and Dies in Red, White, Blue, and Green

Good morning.  My first thought was that I wanted to make a card to celebrate July the 4th, but I would just use red, white, and blue.  Of course my mind went to flowers.  You must have green with flowers, right.  So I love my card, but it doesn't cry out July the 4th.  It's the thought that counts, I hope. Here is my card.

Vintage Bottle Punch  Bough Punch  Hippo dies  Stylish Shapes dies  In Color 6 x 6 DSP  Cottage Rose  Heart Pearls  White Seam Binding  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

Start with a base of Starry Sky that is 4 1/4 x 11.  Score and fold at 5 1/2.  Run another piece of Starry Sky through the Cut & Emboss Machine with the Hive 3D Embossing Buddy.  This paper measures 4 x 5 1/4.  Glue down to the base.

Most of my images are punched or cut from the 2022-2024 In Color 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper Stack.

The bottle is punched from Orchid Oasis  using the Vintage Bottle Punch.  Add with dimensionals.

The leaves are punched from Parakeet Party using the Bough Punch.  Parts of them are added with mini dimensionals and parts are glued down.

The flower blossoms are cut using the Cut & Emboss Machine using the Hippo dies.  These dies are part of the free Sale-a-Bration items that can be earned with purchase.  The flowers were added with glue.  You could use glue dots.

Embellish with the Heart Pearls.

The sentiment is stamped using the Cottage Rose stamp set.  Stamp on a white scrap in Starry Sky ink.  Cut using the Stylish Shapes dies.  Run some of the White Seam Binding around the card and adhere to the bottle so that the tag will cover the ends.  Add the tag with a mini dimensional on those end corners.  Tie a bow with the seam binding and put in place with a rolled up glue dot.

For the inside, the words are again from Cottage Rose.  I used some left overs to add just a little stem and flower.  I think that looks cute.

I hope you have a wonderful 4th of July week.  Maybe you'll have some time to stamp!  Our granddaughters are coming to spend 4 days with us this week!  Can't wait!

Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper and a 6 x 6 One Sheet Wonder

For my Facebook Live this week I used the Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper cut to 6 x 6.  I showed how to cut this down to make 4 different cards.  I love these cards!  It's a perfect time because selected packs of Designer Series Paper are 15% off through August 2nd.  The Hand-Penned paper is one of them.  I'll have more on this at the end of the post.  Here are the cards we made.

Facebook Live 7.14. 2021 6 x 6 one sheet wonder 4 cards by Jo Anne Hewins

So I did start with a piece of 6 x 6.  Here are all of the pieces.

Facebook Live 7.14.2021 6 x 6 one sheet wonder by Jo Anne Hewins

I'm going to put the video here and below are all of the measurements and more pictures.

 

Cut the 6 x 6 into 4 pieces that are 3 x 3.

One of the 3 x 3 is used as is.

Cut the second 3 x 3 in half to make 2 pieces of 1 1/2 x 3.  Pay attention to direction if that matters.

Cut the third 3 x 3 into three pieces that are 1 x 3.  Pat attention to direction if that matters.

Cut the fourth 3 x 3 piece into 4 pieces that are 1 1/2 x 1 1/2.

Since my pieces did have a direction, I tried to place them so that the pattern of the paper continued.

 

To frame these in black I cut these measurements.

First square is a piece of 3 1/8 x 3 1/8.

The second has 2 pieces of 1 5/8 x 3 1/8.

The third has 3 pieces of 1 1/8 x 3 1/8.

The fourth piece has 4 pieces of 1 5/8 x 1 5/8.

Additional supplies used are the Tailor Made Tags dies, Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder, Highland Heather card stock at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded for the base and another piece at 4 1/8 x 5 3/8, embossed, Basic Black card stock, Basic White card stock, Baker's Twine Essentials Pack, Hand-Penned Petals stamp set, Highland Heather and Mint Macaron ink pads, dimensionals, glue.

Back on Your Feet - Day 4

It's been a great week with samples using the Back on Your Feet stamp set.

I'll go over all the samples again at the end of this post.  Here is my card for today using the sloth.  He is really cute!

Back on Your Feet Sloth by Jo Anne Hewins

The card base for this one is Soft Suede measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  Temporarily attach a piece of Old Olive cardstock that is 4 x 5 1/4.  Using the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes centered on the top half of the card, cut a hole through both pieces of paper.  Be sure you have centered the Old Olive piece first.  Now take off the Old Olive piece and run it through your die cutting machine with the Layered Leaves embossing folder.

Stamp the sloth on a piece of Whisper White in Memento Black ink.  Color with the Light and Dark Soft Suede, Light and Dark Old Olive, Light and Dark Highland Heather, and the Ivory Blends.  Cut using the same oval from Stitched Shapes.

Stamp the saying from Back on Your Feet in Highland Heather on a 1" wide scrap of white.  Notch the end.  Add the sentiment to the card with snail on the left and dimensionals toward the right.

Back on Your Feet Sloth Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

Run Linen Thread around the hole in the Old Olive layer and the bottom of the card and tie in the center of the saying.  Add a Linen Thread bow with a glue dot.

Attach a Whisper White layer 4 x 5 1/4 to the inside of the card.  With the card closed, add the sloth to the inside of the card right through the hole.
