Cards - Halloween & Fall

Christmas Season for Fall

Welcome to the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #686.  This week we are using Evening Evergreen, Pumpkin Pie, and Bumblebee.

CCMC686

Of course these colors are great for fall.  What better set to use than a Christmas one!  I used Christmas Season and the Seasonal Labels dies.  You can get them both together as a bundle with a 10% savings.

The base of the card is Evening Evergreen 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.

The next layer is Basic White, 3 3/4 x 5.  I cut a 1 1/4 inch piece of Evening Evergreen from the Christmas Tidings 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper.  Glue this to the white layer at a diagonal.  Trim away any excess.  Now run this layer through the Cut & Emboss Machine with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder.

The saying on the front of the card is from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set.  Stamp in Evergreen on Basic White.  Use the Tasteful Labels dies to cut this out.  It goes in the center of the card with dimensionals.  Run a length of the Linen Thread around the label.  Add a bow with a glue dot.

Stamp and cut out several of the images from Christmas Season.  I cut about 4 of 3 different fronds.  For the one with the berries, I stamped off for the stem.  Use Bumblebee for that one.  I also made stems in Evening Evergreen and Pumpkin Pie.  Arrange around the sentiment label.  Add with a glue dot down near the bottom.  Add a dimensional near the top.

Embellish the card with Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots.

Facebook Live 9.29.2021 Two Fall Latch Fun Fold Cards

We made 2 great Latch Fun Fold cards on my Facebook Live on Wednesday.  Both are great for fall.  I think you'll like them.  I've got the video to post and all the measurements.  Here are the cards.

So I'm going to put the video here.  

 

We made the card on the right first. For the cards I'll put the measurements and supplies used.

Cajun Craze is the base of this one.  You'll need one that measures 5 1/2 x 6 1/2 and score at 4 1/4.  The other Cajun Craze piece measures 3 1/4 x 3 1/2.  Score this at 1/2 on the shorter side.

Measurements for the Basic White card stock are 2 1/8 x 5 3/8, 2 5/8 x 3 3/8, and 4 1/8 x 5 3/8.

I used the Love of Leaves and the Quiet Meadow stamp sets.  Colors used are Cajun Craze, Merry Merlot, Old Olive, Crushed Curry, and Soft Suede.

The circles were made using the Layering Circles dies.  Embellishments are made with Wink of Stella and the Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon.

The latch part comes when the layer on the right fits under the circle label and over the left fold.

Here's the inside of the card.

The second card we made had a base of Early Espresso.  The first piece is 5 1/2 x 6 1/2, score at 4 1/4.  The second piece is 3 1/2 x 4 1/2, score on the 3 1/2 inch side at 1/2.

I used the Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper for this card.  Measurements are 2 1/8 x 5 3/8 for one and 2 7/8 x 4 3/8 for the other using the multicolor fall paper.  I also used the sky paper for the inside of the card.  It measures 4 1/8 x 5 3/8.  I like a thin border around my card.  If you want to get more use of your DSP, then you might want to lower all the measurements by 1/8.

I used the tree from the Beautiful Trees dies.  You'll need two of them.  Cut from Early Espresso.  Put some of the Adhesive Sheets on the back of the card stock.  This will turn your trees into stickers.

Use the Layering Circles dies for the circles.  The sentiment is from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set.

For the inside of the card, use the Happiest of Birthdays stamp set.  Place the stamp on the Stamparatus to make sure you get a dark image.

Use the video for the directions.

I think this should give you what you need to know.  You can adjust the latch part of the card to the design you want to use.  On the second card I adjusted the size to fit my tree.

I appreciate you stopping by today.  Could you subscribe to my YouTube channel if you haven't already.  My goal is to get to 1000!  I'm getting closer!

Facebook Live 9.22.2021 Teepee Cards for Fall and Halloween

Today we are making teepee cards.  This is the first time that I've ever made them.  They look difficult to me but they aren't.  We'll start with the fall card.  These cards can be folded flat for mailing and will fit in a regular A2 envelope.

Teepee Card Side 2  Pattern Party DSP  Stitched Leaves dies  Love of Leaves  by Jo Anne Hewins

Of course the teepee card has 3 sides.  This is only one.  Let me tell you what you'll need.  More pictures to come.

3 pieces of Basic Black that each measure 4 x 4.  Use your Paper Trimmer to score diagonally on all three.

1 piece of Basic White that measures 3 7/8 x 3 7/8.  Use your trimmer to cut this into 2 pieces diagonally down the center.

2 pieces of designer paper that measure 3 7/8 x 3 7/8.  These will also be cut into 2 pieces diagonally.  Note:  You will only use 3 of these designer paper triangles.

For the fall card I used the Pattern Party Host Designer Series Paper.  For the Halloween card I used the Cute Halloween Designer Series Paper.    These supplies are needed for both of the cards.  You'll also need something to close the cards.  Velcro dots or a small magnets work fine.  I got mine at the dollar store.

I'm going to go ahead and put the video here.  Instead of writing out the directions, I'll let it show you what to do.

 

I hope that was helpful.  I'll share more pictures of the fall card.  Supplies used are the Love of Leaves stamp set, Stitched Leaves dies, Adhesive Sheets, Hydrangea dies, Matte Decorative Dots, and Linen Thread.
