Hope You Know Autumn Card with Tutorial to Download

Today I want to share with you my card for the Tutorial Medley group for October.  Our theme is fall.  We are a group of demonstrators from the US and Canada.  We each make a card with a tutorial to download and add to the group.  Each month we have a compiled group of around 15 tutorials.  We each share as we wish.  I send the tutorial to my customers and to my Luv 2 Create team.  It's my way of trying to give back.  I do appreciate their support.

Bag of Bones Halloween Card

Hello October!  Today I have a Halloween card for you using the Bag of Bones bundle from the September-December Mini.  You'll find it on pages 48-49.

Bags of Bones Bundle Card  White Emboss  Basics Embossing Powders  Black and White Gingham Ribbon  Blends  Adhesive-Backed Solid Gems  Classic Matte Dots  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

Sometimes when I can't seem to get an idea, I pick up one of Stampin' Up!'s catalogs.  They are full of beautiful samples.  I look at favorite samples and imagine them in different colors or a different stamp set or with a little of the layout changed.  That's how I can up with my card today.

Bag of Bones  CASE of the Mini catalog page 62  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

Compare my card to the one on page 62 of the mini.  I changed the color of the background paper slightly, I definitely changed the stamp set.  My focal piece is a circle instead of a square, but lots of the features of the card are the same.  What do you think?

My base is Basic Black measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2. Score and fold at 4 1/4.

On a piece of paper, I actually used typing paper, cut to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2, adhere alternating strips of Calypso Coral and Cajun Craze.  I didn't measure any of the strips.  I did start with a piece of each color with a 4 1/4 inch width. It really doesn't matter how long your paper is.  Cut the strips with each being a little wider at one end.  You'll only need 4 or 5 of them depending on how you cut.  I used Seal to adhere my paper.  Glue seeping out would have spelled disaster when adding embossing powder.

Stamp the skletons in Versamark ink after using an embossing buddy all over the layer.  Add white embossing powder from the Basics Embossing Powder pack.  Heat with a Heat Tool.  I'll let you in on a little secret.  I had a mess up.  It's hidden underneath my saying layer!

Cut out the large panel with the Deckled Rectangles dies.  Adhere with dimensionals.

Bags of Bones Bundle  White Emboss  Basics Embossing Powders  Black and White Gingham Ribbon  Blends  Adhesive-Backed Solid Gems  Classic Matte Dots  Close Up  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

I'm using the Black and White Gingham Ribbon on this card.  It's found in the annual catalog.  I used the Dark Cajun Craze Blend to color in the white of the ribbon.  Layer the ribbon in a zigzag fashion.  I added just a little dash of Seal and used that  to adhere.

Stamp the saying in Cajun Craze and cut using the Deckled Circles dies.  Cut a larger circle from Cajun Craze cardstock.  Add some dimensionals to the saying and add over the ribbon.

I used two kinds of embellishments on this card.  Why not?  I used the Classic Matte Dots and the Adhesive-Backed Solid Gems.

Abundant Beauty Masks for a Fall Card

If you look on page 47 of the September-December Mini, you'll find the Abundant Beauty Masks.  Don't overlook these tools.  With the masks and Blending Brushes you can make beautiful sunflowers or any color flower, snowflakes, autumn leaves, or a fantastic background.  The possibilities are endless.  Today I'm sharing an autumn card that I think you'll love.

Abundant Beauty Masks Card  So Sincere  Blending Brushes  Linen Thread  2023-2025 In Color Jute  2023-2025 In Color Dots  Tailor Made Tags  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

The base of this card is one of the new In Colors Wild Wheat.  It measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 with the score line at 4 1/4.

Cut a piece of Very Vanilla to 4 x 5 1/4.

With Blending Brushes color this layer with Wild Wheat and Old Olive.  Go lightly tapping off the excess ink on you Grid Paper.  Blend the two colors together as you go from one color to the other.

Now place the leaf mask over this layer.  The mask is larger than the layer.  Tape the mask in place.  I just tape right to the Grid Paper.  Use Wild Wheat, Old Olive, and Cherry Cobbler ink and blending brush to ink in all the places on the mask.  These colors will be darker.  Move to different colors in different areas.  It's great for a leaf to have more than one color.  When you are done, sprinkle some dropets of water over the surface and just allow it to dry.  This adds additional interest to the background.

Use the Wild Wheat jute from the 2023-2025 In Color Jute Trim.  Separate the strands.  Run this around the card and tie into a knot.  Make a bow of Linen Thread.  I used a bow maker that I got online to make a triple bow.  Add this bow by tying the strands around the center of the bow.  Do all 3 pairs of the strands.  

Stamp the saying from So Sincere in Cherry Cobbler ink on Wild Wheat cardstock.  Cut this out with the smallest tag from the Tailor Made Tags.  Add the tag under the bows with a glue dot and then use dimensionals for the rest.

Add 2023-2025 In Color Dots to embellish.

For the inside of the card, add another saying from So Sincere.  Add some color to the corner and use the masks to add more leaves.

Paper Florist Dies Fall Card with the All About Fall Designer Series Paper

 

I wish I could get everything from the September-December Mini, but I just can't.  I'll bet you experience the same thing.  I love the Autumn Leaves bundle, but it just wasn't in my budget.  I wanted to make a fall card, so I started looking at the products that I do have.  I found the perfect leaf in the Paper Florist dies.  That is a set of dies that stands alone in the back of the annual catalog.  It does not have a stamp set with it.  I'll be using one of the leaf dies from this set.

All About Autumn Card  Hope You Know  Linen Thread  Neutrals Adhesive-Backed Sequins  Deckled Circles  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

The base of this card is Thick Basic White.  It's cut 4 1/4 x 11, score and fold at 5 1/2.  This woodgrain paper is from the All About Autumn 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper from the new mini.  All of the products from the mini are available for everyone as of September 6th!  Add a sheet of the paper cut to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 to the front of the card.  I like to use the Multipurpose Glue because it gives you a few seconds to get it just perfect.

Cut leaves from Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Copper Clay, Crushed Curry, and Cherry Cobbler.  I used a total of 12 on the front of the card and one inside.  I needed 2 of each color and 3 of some of them.  I didn't do this on my sample, but I have a great idea to make everything so much easier.  Use the Adhesive Sheets on one side of the cardstock.  Then, the leaves will be stickers and so easy to apply.  Just trim around the card where parts of the leaves extend out beyond the edges.  It's perfectly fine to let some of them extend.  Somehow it makes it all look more real.

Now run some of the Linen Thread around the card 2 times.  I usually just let the ends meet in front and secure them with scotch tape.  Make sure the tape is behind your sentiment layer.

The stamp set is called Hope You Know.  It's in the annual catalog.  Stamp in Copper Clay on  Basic White cardstock.  Cut it out with the 2nd smallest circle from the Deckled Circles dies.  Cut a circle of Copper Clay using the 3rd smallest circle from the dies.  Adhere together and then add to the card front with dimensionals.  Make sure that the circle covers the scotch tape.  

Add a bow of Linen Thread with a rolled up glue dot.

Embellish with the Neutrals Adhesive-Backed Sequins.

I had a strip of the woodgrain left over so I used it on the inside.  Add a leaf as well.  The saying is from the Hope You Know stamp set.

Fall Frame Using the Paper Florist Dies and Earthen Elegance Designer Series Paper

I have another frame for you today all ready to greet the fall season.  This frame uses the Paper Florist dies, Cheerful Daisies dies, and the Dainty Delight dies.  I had seen several frames online for spring by Gail Ellis.  She is an inspired creator.  Check her out if you don't know her.  I decided I wanted to make a frame for fall.

 

Paper Florist dies  fall frame  Dainty Delight dies  Cheerful Daisies dies  Close Up of Flowers  No Frame  Earthen Elegance DSP choice 2  2023-2025 In Color Jute  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

This was so much fun!  It is time consuming, but if you like that, you will have a ball!  It would be difficult to go through and tell you how to make all the flowers.  I just can't make a video right now.  I have my granddaughter Sagan and she takes priority.  I had a lot of shadow in my picture with the frame, so I made a picture without the frame.  You can see it much better this way.

Colors used are Lost Lagoon, Pretty Peacock, Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze with pad, Cherry Cobbler with pad, Early Espresso, Old Olive, Petal Pink with Flirty Flamingo pad, Pecan Pie, Copper Clay with pad.

Those mentioned with a pad had some blending to enhance the flowers.

The vase is cut from the Earthen Elegance Designer Series Paper.  I cut out the pattern myself.  There is a bow around the vase using the 2023-2025 In Color Jute trim.

Add the flowers with glue dots, Multipurpose Glue, dimensionals- whatever seems to work best at the time.

I have another one using a different pattern of the designer paper.

Which do you like best?  The flowers are the same in this one.  I just changed the designer paper.  The frame is 8 x 10.  It's a cheap one that I've had a long time.  Please excuse the shadows!
