Cards - Halloween & Fall

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.

One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop for October - Spooktacular

Welcome to the One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop for October.  This is a Spooktacular event.  So get ready to be frightened and delighted by lots of Halloween ideas!

I am using the Birds of a Feather stamp set for my projects.  Don't you love those birds.  I go for the cute, not scary!

OSAT October Birds of a Feather Card by Jo Anne Hewins

This card has an arm that crosses over the card.  It's really neat.

Start with a card base of Basic Black that measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  Cut a piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock to 3 x 11.  Score at 5 1/2.  Glue this to the center of the base.  Use Grid Paper to help get this little card straight.  Use the Pumpkin Pie gingham paper from the Regals Designer Series Paper.  Cut this to 2 7/8 x 5 1/2.  Add to the front.

Cut Silver Foil to 1/4 inch.  Butt on either side of the 3 inch card.

Cut a piece of Pumpkin Pie to 1 1/2 x 5 1/2.  Score at 1 inch.  Use the Triple Banner Punch at the other end.  Stamp the banner with the Trick or Treat stamp from Birds of a Feather in the same color randomly.  Decide where you would like to have this arm.  Glue the short end to the back of the card.

OSAT October Birds of a Feather Close Up of Card by Jo Anne Hewins

Cut a Basic Black scallop circle using the Layering Circles dies.  Stamp the pirate bird in Tuxedo Memento Black ink.  Color with Blends.  I used Light and Dark Daffodil Delight, Light and Dark Pumpkin Pie, Light and Dark Highland Heather, and Light Smoky Slate.  Fussy cut.  Put dimensionals on the back of the duck.  Take Silver Metallic Thread and run it around several fingers, slip it off, and lay it down on the dimensionals.  Play with the thread until you get it the way you like it.  Add to the scallop circle.  Glue the circle to the arm.  Make sure that you do not put glue on the parts that stick over the arm.

OSAT October Birds of a Feather Card Open by Jo Anne Hewins

I made a box to go with this card using the Stitched Nested Labels dies.  I found this box originally by Jeanette Cobb.  Of course I had to change a few things to make it my own.

OSAT October Birds of a Feather Box by Jo Anne Hewins

You can get two of these boxes from one sheet of cardstock.  Begin with a piece of Basic Black measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  Cut 2 inches off  so that you have a piece of 2 x 8 1/2.  Score this piece at 1 3/8, 2 3/4, 5 3/4, and 7 1/8 the long way.  Score at 1/2 and 1 1/2 on the short side.

I have a video showing how to make the box.  With the measurements above I think you will be fine.

 

Jeanette made the box to hold a 3 x 3 sticky note pad.  She punched a hole on the side to hold a pencil.  I decided that this box needed candy!  I used a 3 x 6 Gusseted Cello Bag and filled it with a candy corn assortment.  I folded over the bag and stapled it shut.  The little skull stamp is from the September Paper Pumpkin stamp set.  Stamp in black on a white scrap.  Punch with the 1 inch circle punch.  Add a frame of Pumpkin Pie scallops with the Layering Circles dies.  Add with a dimensional. 

OSAT October Birds of a Feather Box from the Top by Jo Anne Hewins

I also added a little handle for the box.  Use the new black Scalloped Edge Ribbon.  Use about 12 inches of ribbon.  Punch a small hole, add the ribbon from the outside, tie a knot.  Do that for each side.

So here are the box and card together.

NC Demo Blog Hop for September Celebrating Fall

Welcome to the NC Demo Blog Hop for September.  We are celebrating fall.  I am personally hoping that this tribute to fall will bring some cooler temperatures.  Are you listening fall?  You might have just come from Toni's post.  She is so talented!

Join us blog

I decided to use the stamp set Gather Together from the Holiday catalog.  It has coordinating dies called Gathered Leaves.  

Gather Together by Jo Anne Hewins

I'm just going to say that I love this card.  I love Pretty Peacock!  I love that Stampin' Up! has included this color as part of the Come to Gather Designer Series Paper.  It's just not my notion of the typical fall color.  Isn't that wonderful!

The card base is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  Stamp the large leaf from Gather Together in Pretty Peacock over the front of the card.

Add a strip of the Pretty Peacock check down the left side.  It measures 1 1/2 x 5 1/2.

Stamp the saying in peacock on a scrap of Very Vanilla.  Add some of the wheat in stamped off Crumb Cake over the saying.  Punch with the 1 1/2" circle punch.  Using the Layering Circles dies cut a scallop circle from Crumb Cake to frame the saying.  Add to the card with dimensionals.

Gather Together Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

Stamp the larges leaf on Very Vanilla in Pretty Peacock.  Use an Aqua Painter to spread the peacock color.  This will be very light.  In fact, it really does not show up in the picture.  Let it dry and then cut the leaf out with the Gathered Leaves dies.  Add the leaf with dimensionals so that it overlaps the sentiment circle a little.  Finish off with a Linen Thread bow attached with a rolled up glue dot.

This is a pretty simple card, but that's just a plus!

Gather Together Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

Here is the inside of the card.  You can see the leaves much better here.  Stamp the leaves and then use an Aqua Painter to spread a little of the color.  The saying is from the Gather Together stamp set.  It's stamped in Crumb Cake.

Detailed Leaves Fall Card

Hello, hello!  Today I have a great fall card for you.  It uses the Detailed Leaves Thinlits.

Detailed Leaves by Jo Anne Hewins

I said before that fall is my favorite season!  I love fall colors!  I wanted to brighten up this card, so I used Granny Apple Green as my card base.  It measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.

The Cajun Craze layer is 3 7/8 x 5 1/8.

The next layer is a wood look paper from the Country Lane Designer Series Paper.  It is cut at 3 3/4 x 5.

Down near the bottom of this card I have more designer paper.  It's also from the Country Lane DSP.  One is 1/2 x 3 3/4 and the other is 1 x 3 3/4.  I chose the papers that are Crushed Curry designs.  I always line my layer on my grid paper and make sure that the paper is straight.

Cut the long thin leaf from Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, and Granny Apple Green card stock.  You might want to use the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets to make these leaves like stickers.

Detailed Leaves close up by Jo Anne Hewins

The saying for this card is from Itty Bitty Greetings.  It's stamped in Cajun Craze.  Cut this out with the smallest oval from Stitched Shapes.  Cut it out so that the saying is to the right of the oval.  Put dimensionals on the back.  Wrap the Gold Metallic Thread around four fingers 5 or 6 times, slide it off your fingers, and use the dimensionals to help anchor the thread.  Attach to the card.

For the bow, use the Nature's Twine.  Pull the smaller pieces of twine apart.  I think I ended up dividing it into 3 or 4 parts.  Put them all together again and tie into a bow.  I feel like this allows the twine to lie down a little flatter.  I used the Crumb Cake.

Detailed Leaves inside by Jo Anne Hewins

For the inside, add a Granny Apple Green leaf.  The saying is from the Detailed with Love stamp set.  Stamp in Cajun Craze.
