In Good Taste, Use Those Scraps

I love the natural look of the papers in the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper.  It was so popular that it was carried over from last year's annual catalog to this year's catalog.  Over time, I've purchased several packs of this paper and I must admit that I have lots of scraps.  Here are two easy peasy cards that use my scraps.  These are great masculine cards that could be used for any occasion by changing the sentiment.

In Good Taste DSP  Tailored Tag Punch  Early Espresso Faux Suede Trim  Linen Thread  Layering Circles dies  Luv 2 Create  Jo Anne Hewins

One card uses the scraps vertically and the other horizontally.  

The card base is Early Espresso that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  The next layer is Basic White 4 x 5 1/4.

Cut a piece of basic white that is 3 3/4 x 5.  Cover the entire sheet with an Adhesive Sheet.  Burnish with your Bone Folder to make sure it sticks well all over the surface.  Peel off the adhesive and add the In Good Taste strips.  Don't worry about the strips sticking out over the edges.  Just turn over the layer and trim the ends to fit.

The Early Espress label is stamped with the Tailored Tag Punch.

The sentiment is from the Welcoming Woods stamp set.  Cut out with the Layering Circles dies.  One card has a Linen Thread bow attached with a rolled up glue dot.  The second card has some of the Faux Suede Early Espresso Ribbon behind.  

Embellish with some of the Brushed Metallic Dots.

These cards are quite simple and easy to make.  You are also using up your scraps.  This technique could be used for any type of designer paper.  I'm so glad that you joined me today!

Facebook Live for 6.9.2021 Biggest Wish and the Stamparatus

Happy Friday!  Today I have a post for my Facebook Live from Wednesday.  We used the Biggest Wish stamp set with the Stamparatus to make a couple cute cards.

Biggest Wishes by Jo Anne Hewins

I'm happy to share these cards with you.  In fact the masculine card was already shared with you on Thursday's post with the One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop.  I have the card with a coordinating Mini Paper Pumpkin Box.  You can find the details for the card by clicking here.  

OSAT for June Masculine Card and Box by Jo Anne Hewins

Here is a picture of the pair.  The papers used are from the Bloom Where You're Planted Designer Series Paper and the Pattern Party Host Designer Series Paper.

Biggest Wish in Gorgeous Grape by Jo Anne Hewins

This card uses the Stamparatus a little differently than you might use it.  

The base of the card is Gorgeous Grape 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored and folded at 4 1/4.

The Basic White layer is 4 x 5 1/4.  Stamp the word HELLO in Gorgeous Grape over the card in random places.  I did use the Stamparatus so that I could stamp again if needed.  Remember to go off the edges in places.  

When done set up the stencil from the Plenty of Patterns Decorative Masks.  Place so that the entire white layer is covered.  Use Highland Heather ink and a Blending Brush to add color.

Biggest Wishes Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

Use the second largest decorative end tag from the Tailor Made Tag dies.  Cut one in Basic White and another in Gorgeous Grape.  On the white tag, stamp the HELLO in Highland Heather and the friend in Gorgeous Grape.  Add a few of the Elegant Faceted Gems colored with the Dark Highland Heather blend.

Layer the two tags together and add with dimensionals.  Make a circle to add to the tag using the dies.  I used Gorgeous Grape and put some of the Adhesive Sheets behind.  This way it turns into a sticker and is very easy to add to the tag.

The bow is made from the white ribbon in the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Pack.

Here is the Facebook Live video.  If you enjoy this video please share and subscribe to my YouTube channel.  I would appreciate it so much.

 

If you need any supplies, I would love to earn your business.  Orders of $50 or more using the Host Code 43CEPHZZ will get a PDF emailed to them with at least 15 card ideas that I haven't used before.  All supplies used will be current!  Tutorials will be emailed after the 15th of the month.

One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop for June Boys in the Hood

Welcome to the One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop for June.  Our theme is Boys in the Hood.  That means it's all for the guys!  I'm afraid guys don't get the time they might deserve in this card making thing.  I admit that I have a hard time with it.  Just give me flowers!

May be an image of flower and text that says 'OSAT ONE STAMP AT A TIME BLOG HOP'

I'm glad you are here and I did come up with a card and box that I think are just the thing.  I'm using the Biggest Wish stamp set and the Bloom Where You're Planted Designer Series Paper.  I've also added in a few other products.  Let's go!

OSAT for June Masculine Card by Jo Anne Hewins

I think the Biggest Wish stamp set and the Stamparatus are a great couple.

My base is Basic Black measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored and folded at 4 1/4.

Cut a piece of the wood grain paper from Bloom Where You're Planted that is 4 x 5 1/4.

Set up the Stamparatus to stamp right on this designer paper.  The HAPPY will need to be places between two of the hinges near the top of the paper.  Start at the top and stamp with Cinnamon Cider ink.  I did need to ink more than once.  Pull up the plastic plate and attach again at the  groove below as you go along.  Make sure that your placement of the word HAPPY allows you room to have the word birthday.

To stamp the word birthday, make sure to rub over the already stamped HAPPY with an Embossing Buddy or a used dryer sheet to remove static.  Stampin' Up! no longer sells the embossing buddy, but you might still have one.  Place the birthday stamp on the other side of the plastic plate already used.  Stamp with Versamark.  In the beginning I did one word at a time stamping, adding black embossing powder, heating, and repeating.  I did the last two words at the same time.  I think you can do what is comfortable for you.  Do emboss each word with black embossing powder from the Basics Stampin' Emboss Powders.  This package contains white, black, and clear powders.

Add a piece of the brick paper from the Bloom Where You're Planted DSP that is 3/4 x 5 1/4 on the left side of the card.  Add a piece of Basic Black that is 1/4 x 5 1/4.

OSAT for June masculine card close up by Jo Anne Hewins

I love that these stamps can be stamped opposite from each other.  On the tags I stamped BIRTHDAY in the large letters in Cinnamon Cider and then embossed the happy in black.  Stamp these on the brick patterned paper.

Cut the tag with the second largest of the Tailored Made Tags dies.  I used the more plain tags.  These dies also have dies to add around the hole in the tag.  I love that look!

Cut an additional tag from the black and white check from the Pattern Party Designer Series Paper.  

Add these together with the black twine from the Baker's Twine Essentials Pack.  Add tags to the card with dimensionals.

Finish off the card with the Matte Black Dots.

OSAT for June Masculine Mini Paper Pumpkin Box by Jo Anne Hewins

For my 3D project, I used the Mini Paper Pumpkin Box.  I filled it with Tootsie Rolls.  They are one of my husband's favorites.

The top of the box has a layer of the black and white check measuring 3 5/8 x 5 1/2.  Add a piece of the brick paper that measures 2 x 3 5/8 and another 1/4 inch strip of Basic Black.

Make the tag in the same way with the wood print designer paper.  Add to the card with dimensionals.

Add the Matte Black Dots.

I did decorate the sides of the box with the brick paper.  You need 2 that are 7/8 x 3 5/8 and two that are 7/8 x 5 5/8.
