Happy Fall Y'all Banner Year

Banner Year isn't one of those stamp sets that might catch your eye the first time through the July-August Mini Catalog.  It's found on page 65.  When you take a second look, you'll see that it's a great stamp set.  It can truly take you year round.  Today I have a card for the fall.  Fall isn't here yet in NC, but it's coming.  I'm ready for cooler temps and floating leaves.  Anyway, here is my card.

Banner Year Fall Card by Jo Anne Hewins

This is a pretty simple card.  Don't you love those?  The card base is Early Espresso.  The layer of patterned paper is from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper.  It measures 4 x 5 1/4.

The next layer of Whisper White it 2 3/4 x 4.  Stamp to make your own designer paper.  Start with the pumpkin and stamp in Pumpkin Pie.  For the stem and leaf, color directly on the stamp with a Early Espresso marker and a Granny Apple Green marker.  The acorn is stamped in Soft Suede ink.  Then color over the top with the Early Espresso marker.  The leaf is stamped in Crushed Curry.

Banner Year Fall Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

Stamp the saying in Soft Suede on a 1/2 inch piece of Whisper White.  Glue near the bottom of the panel and trim to fit.

Add a bow made from the Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon.  Use a glue dot.

Banner Year Fall Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

For the inside of the card, stamp the squirrel at the bottom of the cardstock.  Add the acorn as on the front.

The saying is stamped in Pumpkin Pie and is from the Banner Year stamp set.

That's all there is to it!   I think you could whip out a stack of these pretty easily.  Thanks for your time today.  I know it is precious!

Tutorial Friday Banner Year

It's Friday, so I have a tutorial for you.  This card uses the Banner Year stamp set found on page 65 of the August-December Mini Catalog.  Just as the name says, this stamp set can take you through the entire year!  Here is the card.

Tutorial Medley September Banner Year by Jo Anne Hewins

Of course you want all the details on how to make this card.  Here goes.

Banner Year, Tutorial Medley

Supplies:

Stamp Sets: Banner Year (153464)

Cardstock: Basic Black (121045), Thick Whisper White (140272)

Ink: Soft Suede #147115, Tuxedo Memento Black (132708), Pumpkin Pie (147086), Old Olive (147090), Pumpkin Pie Blends Combo (154897)

Tools & Accessories: Cobwebs 3D EF (153578), Tailored Tag Punch (145667), Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding (151326), Snips (103579)

Misc: Stampin’ Dimensionals #104430, Mini Glue Dots #103683, Multipurpose Liquid Glue #110755, Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (149653)

 

Measurements:

Card Base: Basic Black 4 ¼ x 11, score and fold at 5 ½

Cardstock #2: Basic Black 4 ¼ x 5 ½

Cardstock #3: Thick Whisper White 1 ½ inches wide

 

Instructions:

Run the 4 ¼ x 5 ½ Basic Black paper through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine with the Cobwebs 3D Embossing Folder. Glue this panel to the card front.

Color an 8 ¾ length of Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding with a Dark Pumpkin Pie Blend. Wrap around the center of the card front securing it behind where one of the hexagons will go. Color more seam binding and make a bow to add later.

Cut Thick Whisper White to 1 ½ inch lengths. Punch with the Tailored Tag Punch. Be careful to line the paper in the punch so that it is straight and there is equal distance of empty space at each end. Hint: I had trouble with the orientation of these hexagons. It helped me to lay them out on my work space correctly as I punched them. You will need 8 of them.

Stamp hexagons. Use Soft Suede, Tuxedo Memento Black, Pumpkin Pie, and Old Olive inks. Use the Halloween stamps from Banner Year. This card has acorns, pumpkins, a sentiment, bats, cobwebs, faces with Boo, a jack-o-’lantern, and leaves.

Place these on the card front as you wish. Some of them may go off the edge. When happy add each one with dimensionals. Snip the ones that go off the edge by turning the card to the back.

Add the bow with a glue dot.

Arrange a Wreath for Year Round Stamping

I've been stamping the last few days with the Arrange a Wreath bundle.  I've posted some of my samples the last few days.  I'll give you links to these a little later.  Today I have three cards that I want to share.  I'll talk just a little about each of them.  All feature the Arrange a Wreath stamp set and the Wreath Builders dies.

Arrange a Wreath Easter by Jo Anne Hewins

The base of this card is Flirty Flamingo.  I stamped around the edges with the dots stamp from the Comfort and Hope stamp set.  Stamp in Flirty Flamingo. 

The Soft Sea Foam layer is 3 5/8 x 4 7/8.  The Whisper White layer is 3 1/2 x 4 3/4. 

The wreath is stamped in Soft Sea Foam.  I used the Stamparatus for this to make sure I got a good image.  I also cut a wreath in Soft Sea Foam using the more detailed die from the Wreath Builders dies.

The colors for the eggs are Daffodil Delight, Highland Heather, and Flirty Flamingo.  There are two eggs on the stamp and the dies cut out both eggs at the same time.

Color Whisper Crinkled White Seam Binding with a Dark Flirty Flamingo Blend and tie into a bow.  Add with a glue dot.  

The saying is from the Arrange a Wreath stamp set.

I added more dots in Soft Sea Foam just because.

Arrange a Wreath Valentines by Jo Anne Hewins

This card is on a base of Thick Whisper White 4 1/4 x 11, score, and fold.  Cover the front in Real Red Designer Series Paper from the Regal pack.  That piece would be 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.

You'll need one wreath cut using the leaves wreath in Shaded Spruce and another using the more detailed wreath in Just Jade.  Adhere with light glue around the ring only.  The Shaded Spruce is added first.

Cut the large valentine using the dies.  Add a little white scrap behind the LOVE cut out.  Attach with a dimensional.  Add a bow made using the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding.

Stamp the smaller valentines using Real Red ink.  These also stamp and cut out 2 at a time.

Arrange a Wreath Fall Cards by Jo Anne Hewins

This card is on a base of Cinnamon Cider.  

The Shaped Spruce layer is 4 x 5 1/4.  The designer paper is from the Flowers for Every Season 6 x 6 pack.  It measure 3 7/8 x 5 1/8.

The 2 wreaths are the same as the valentine card.

Colors used for the leaves are Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Shaded Spruce, Daffodil Delight, and Cinnamon Cider.  They are also stamped and cut out in pairs.

Add a Cinnamon Cider Ribbon bow.

The sign is stamped off 2 times Cinnamon Cider.  You will need to fussy cut this.  Add some of the ribbon so that it looks like it is hanging from the wreath.

Here is a picture of all four of my cards.  You can find directions for the Christmas card here.

Arrange a Wreath Seasons Cards by Jo Anne Hewins

So you see, this bundle is definitely a year round stamping bundle.  But really, you can put anything on a wreath.  I bet your imagination is going now!  It's a great way to use other stamp sets along with this one.

If also have a post showing the flowers in this set.  I have a beginner, a casual, and a stepped up avid version.  You can find that here.

Thanks for spending a little time with me.  If you need any supplies, I would love to be your demonstrator.

#Simplestamping with Rooted in Nature

I have a super simple card for you today.  There's just some stamping and tying a bow.  That's it!

Rooted in Nature Simple Card by Jo Anne Hewins

The leaves in the Rooted in Nature stamp set, located on page 148 of the Annual catalog, are so pretty!  

For this card, start with a card base of Mossy Meadow that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.

You will need a piece of Whisper White that is 4 x 5 1/4.  The saying is from the Rooted in Nature stamp set.  Stamp in Cherry Cobbler.

Stamp leaves!  I used Cherry Cobbler, Mossy Meadow, Old Olive, and Crushed Curry,  It's easier to start with the largest leaves and work your way down to the smallest. 

Run a length of Linen Thread across the card.  I used scotch tape to hold it on the back of the card.  Add a bow of the Linen Thread with a rolled up glue dot.

Rooted in Nature Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

For the inside of the card, the saying is from the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set.  Stamp leaves in the same colors as on the front of the card.

Rooted in Nature Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

It's just this simple!  This easy card can be stamped in about 10 minutes.
