CCMC670

For this card, I'm using the Meadow dies and the Pattern Party Host Designer Series Paper.

CCMC #670 Pattern Party Sketch Card by Jo Anne Hewins

Start with a base of Thick Basic White that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, score and fold at 4 1/4.

The designer paper used for the larger pieces is from the Pattern Party Host Designer Series Paper.  The Night of Navy layer is cut to 3 x 5 1/4.  The Crushed Curry layer measures 3 x 4 1/4.  Did you know that the Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder will fit perfectly on this paper?  Match carefully and run through your Cut & Emboss Machine.  Since this is a thinner folder you will need the base plate and the 2 clear plates.

The smaller pieces of designer paper come from the Sweet Symmetry Designer Series Paper.  The Night of Navy is 1/2 x 3 7/8.  The Crushed Curry print if 1/2 x 3 3/8.  Stamp on this strip with a saying from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set.  Stamp in Night of Navy.

Tie a knot of Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon and attach with a glue dot.

From Night of Navy card stock cut 2 stems using the Meadow dies.  First, I suggest that you use some of the Adhesive Sheets on one side of the card stock.  You can turn your cut outs into stickers.  It's easy to add to the card.

CCMC#670 Pattern Party Sketch Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

For the inside of the card, I had a little of the embossed designer paper left over.  Add to the bottom of the card.  Mine measured 1 x 4 1/4.  Add a piece of a stem and a little butterfly.

Facebook Live 5.26.2021 Plentiful Plants

Thanks for joining me today.  For my Facebook Live, I used the Plentiful Plants bundle with the Perfect Plants dies.  I don't know about you, but I am a lover of plants.  Watering them might be a different story.  These plants need no water to look perfect.  Here are the cards we made.

Facebook Live 5.26.2021 Plentiful Plants by Jo Anne Hewins

I'll give you a few details for each card and then the video.

Facebook Live 5.26.2021 Plentiful Plants with Macrame EF by Jo Anne Hewins

The card base is Thick Basic White 4 1/4 x 11, score and fold at 5 1/2.

Run through the Cut & Emboss machine with the Macrame 3D Embossing Folder.

Use the Bloom Where You're Planted Designer Series Paper for the pots and plants.  There are pages in the pack that cut right out with the Perfect Plants dies.  I did fussy cut the smallest plant.  Assemble using dimensionals and glue in the lower right corner.

The saying is on a half inch piece of Basic White stamped in Evening Evergreen.  Notch the end.

Facebook Live 5.26.2021 Plentiful Plants Brick Wall by Jo Anne Hewins

For the second card the base is Garden Green 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, score and fold at 4 1/4.

The Basic White layer is 3 3/4 x 5.  Cut the label from the center of this layer using the Tasteful Labels dies.

The dotted paper is from the Pattern Party Designer Series Paper.  It measures 3 5/8 x 4 7/8.  This paper is in the back of the catalog where you find the Host Rewards.

Add the white label to the center of the card.

Stamp all of the pieces for the plants of Basic White.  The pot is Cinnamon Cider, the dotty plants are Pool Party, the larger leaves are Garden Green, and the smaller leaves are Evening Evergreen.  Cut using the Perfect Plants dies.  Assemble and then add to the label with dimensionals.

Stamp the saying in Garden Green and trim.  Add to the card.

Add some of the Pool Party Artistry Bloom Adhesive-Backed Sequins.

Facebook Live 5.26.2021 Plentiful Plants Hanging Basket by Jo Anne Hewins

Card three was inspired by the card on page 80 with the brick paper from the Bloom Where You're Planted DSP.

Card base is Cinnamon Cider 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, score and fold at 4 1/4.

Cut brick paper to 4 1/4 x 4 7/8.  Cut at an angle so that the right side is 4 inches.  Add a liner of Soft Succulent at the top and bottom.  Add to the card.

Use the Perfect Plants dies to cut the white pot, Cinnamon Cider plant hanger,  Soft Succulent (2) and Evening Evergreen plants.  Assemble.  There are helpful hints on the video.  Add the plant with dimensionals.  Use a Matte Black Dot for a hanger.

Stamp the words in Evening Evergreen on white, fussy cut, and add to the card with dimensionals.

Very Versailles and a Color Challenge

Welcome to the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #662.  It's a color challenge using the colors Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, and Soft Succulent.

CCMC662

I haven't used the Very Versailles stamp set in a long time and decided to pull it out.  This set is really a classic.  Here is my card.

CCMC #662 Very Versailles by Jo Anne Hewins

The base of this card is Soft Succulent.  I love this color.  Of course I do.  Green is my signature color, I guess, since my house is painted mostly green.  This color is certainly succulent!  Cut it to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and fold at 4 1/4.

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

The next layer is Basic White measuring 3 3/4 x 5.  Here is where all the action takes place.

I started out stamping the words in the background using stamped off Cajun Craze ink.  I decided it needed softening so I pulled out my Blending Brush and began to add Cajun Craze ink.  Get a little of the extra ink off of the brush on scrap paper.  Start off the edge.  I hit mainly the corners.  Remember that you can always add more ink.  It's practically impossible to take it away.

Add the branches in Soft Succulent ink.

CCMC#662 Very Versailles Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

Run some of the Soft Succulent Ribbon around the white layer and attach with tape on the back.  Make a bow and set aside.

Use the Stitched So Sweetly dies to cut out the sentiment layer.  I actually stamped the image first in Crushed Curry and added the saying in Soft Succulent before I cut it out.  That way you can really center the image on the layer.  I felt the white was too stark and added a faint bit of Cajun Craze with leftover ink on my Blending Brush.

Add the later with dimensionals and the bow with glue dots.

Add a few of the green Genial Gems.  You'll have to have these gems!

CCMC #662 Very Versailles Project by Jo Anne Hewins

For the inside stamp pretty much the same as the outside.  Placement is a little different.  The sentiment is part of the Very Versailles stamp set.

Facebook Live for 4.21.2021 Bag and Card Featuring True Love Designer Series Paper

Hello!  For my Facebook Live this past Wednesday, I used the True Love Designer Series Paper.  I love designer paper, but I don't always use it.  I love black and white so I bought 2 packs of the True Love paper.  Since I haven't had in person classes until recently, I just haven't used my paper.  I bet some of you also have a lot of designer paper.  We'll make a tri-fold card and a bag today.

Facebook Live 4.21.2021 Bag and Card by Jo Anne Hewins

I have to give credit to Laurie Meier for showing this card fold to the NC Demo Facebook group.  It's a great card.
