Thoughtful Wishes with the Radiating Stitches Dies

I'm back with another beautiful card using the Thoughtful Wishes bundle.  It's found on pages 46 and 47 in the new catalog!

Thoughtful Wishes Bundle Card  Thoughtful Journey 6 x 6 DSP  Radiating Stitches dies  Basic Rhinestone Jewels  2024-2026 In Color Stampin' Write Markers  Close Up  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

For this card, I'm using the Radiating Stitches dies.  They are found in the Online Exclusives of the online store.  My card base is Blackberry Bliss 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, folded at 4 1/4.

Add a piece of the Thoughtful Journey 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper that is cut to 3 1/4 x 4 1/2 to the center of the card.  Make sure you pick a piece with Blackberry Bliss in it.

Now take a piece of Blackberry Bliss card stock that is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  Use the largest die and place the second largest die inside.  You need both dies to cut the frame.  Add the frame to the card front with Foam Adhesive Sheets.  Cut strips about 1/2 inch wide.  The frame will hide the edges of the designer paper.

Thoughtful Wishes Bundle  Thoughtful Journey 6 x 6 DSP  Radiating Stitches dies  Basic Rhinestone Jewels  2024-2026 In Color Stampin' Write Markers  Close Up  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

We'll be using the stamp from Thoughtful Wishes with a single stem and multiple leaves and flowers.  Use  a Blackberry Bliss and an Old Olive Stampin' Write Marker to color directly on the red rubber of the stamp.  Color with the side of the large end of the marker and color well.  Huff on the stamp to add moisture in case the stamp has dried a little.  Stamp on Basic White.  Repeat again and then again only with the top part of the stamp.  Cut these out with the Thoughtful Wishes dies.  Add these stems just inside the frame with dimensionals.  There will be a little overflow on the sides.  Use a glue dot to secure.

Stamp the word thanks in Blackberry Bliss on a white scrap.  Fussy cut around the word.  Add with glue dots.

Complete with Basic Rhinestone Jewels.  Tie a knot witht the white ribbon from the Petal Pink & Basic White Diagonal Stripe Trim Combo Pack.

For the inside stamp the stem as for the front.  The saying is from Thoughtful Wishes.

Thoughtful Wishes Bundle with the Thoughtful Journey Designer Series Paper

Hello to you today!  Thanks for checking in with me today.  I have a beautiful card using the brand new Thoughtful Wishes bundle.  Find it on pages 46 and 47 of the new catalog.  It's coming to everyone on May 1.  The bundle is also part of the Thoughtful Journey Suite Collection.  Here's my card.

Thoughtful Wishes Bundle  Watercolor Paper  2024-2026 n Color Resin Dots  Water Painters  Petal Pink and White Diagonal Trim Combo Pack  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

 

I love how this card turned out.  The base of this card is Lost Lagoon 4  1/4 x 11, scored and folded at 5 1/2.  The front of the card is covered with a piece of the Thoughtful Journey 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper.  Cut the paper 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 to fit the front of the card.  I chose this piece of designer paper because it matched my base of Lost Lagoon.  It's a perfect piece to build a card.   I used the package seen on page 46 as the inspiration for this card.

Cut the largest die from the Thoughtful Wishes dies in Lost Lagoon.  Glue to the card front in the  center and just a little to the left.

Stamp the saying from Thoughtful Wishes inPetunia Pop on a Basic White scrap.  Cut it out with the saying near the bottom using a die from the Autumn Leaves dies.  Glue the label to the right and below the mid point of the front.

Thoughtful Wishes  Watercolor Paper  2024-2026 n Color Resin Dots  Water Painters  Close Up of Card  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

Cut the following from a piece of Watercolor Paper:  three of the flowers with a long stem and 5 of the leaves that are more solid and the veins cut out.  Color the flowers and leaves with Water Painters.  Use Petunia Pop and Old Olive ink pads.  I put ink on a clear block and use that to color.  No need to try to make all of the color uniform.

Build the flowers and leaves on the label.  Glue.  

Use the white ribbon from the Petal Pink & White Trim combo Pack.  Tie it around the front of the card and hide the base of the flowers and leaves.  Tie in a knot at the left of the label.

Finish with the 2024-2026 In Color Resin Dots to embellish.

Thoughtful Wishes  Watercolor Paper  2024-2026 n Color Resin Dots  Water Painters  Inside of Card  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

The saying on the inside of the card is from Thoughtful Wishes in Petunia Pop.  Use Stampin' Write markers directly on the red rubber of the stamp and stamp in the center of the bottom.  Cut three more leaves from Watercolor Paper and paint as before.  Glue to the card stock.

I've been challenged to make 6 cards with the Thoughtful Wishes bundle.  So far I have posted 3 of them.  You can find the other two here and here.

NC Blog Hop for March Retiring and Returning

Hello and welcome to the NC Demo Blog Hop.  We hop the last Sunday of each month.  I'm so glad you are here.  For this month our hop features at least one item that is retiring and one item that is returning.  You may have come from Laurie Meier's post or you might be starting here with me.  Either way, please take the entire hop.  I know you'll get some great ideas!

 

Next NC Demo Blog Hop

 

This is a time of year with lots of change if you follow Stampin' Up!  Both the January-April Mini and the 2023-2024 Annual catalogs are ending soon.  The Last Chance Lists have been published.  We are anxious to see what is retiring and what will be carrying on.  Sadly, some items will be leaving us.  Some items that are carrying over will appear in the new 2024-2025 Annual catalog and some just might show up in the Online Exclusives section of the Online Store.  The Online Store is proving to be the best place to find out what's available.  Let me move on.

NC Demo Blog Hop  Natural Print dies  Perennial Lavender DSP  Flowering Zinnias DSP  Tailor Made Tags dies  Distressed Tile EF  Linen Thread  Perennial Postage stamp set  Lovely and Sweet dies  Front View  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

One of the things that I will miss is the Natural Prints dies (retiring).  I just love that wreath!  So my card is focusing on the wreath.  The perfect fold for a circular focus is the book fold.  It leaves one section of the card in a square that is perfect for that circle.

My base of Crumb Cake card stock 4 1/4 x 11.  Score at 4 1/4 and at 5 1/2.  Fold the base in half and then fold back at the next score line.  Make sure all is straight.  Use your Bone Folder to burnish the folds.

Glue down the small section left at the left of the card making the book fold.

For the spine of the book, cut a piece of the Flowering Zinnias Designer Series Paper.  This product is already in the Online Exclusives.  Cut the paper 1 1/8 x 4 1/8.  Run it through the Cut & Emboss Machine with the Distressed Tile Embossing Folder (returning).  This leaves some white showing on the paper, but I like that!  Glue.

NC Demo Blog Hop  Book Fold  Natural Print dies  Perennial Lavender DSP  Flowering Zinnias DSP  Tailor Made Tags dies  Distressed Tile EF  Linen Thread  Perennial Postage stamp set  Lovely and Sweet dies  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

For the main part of the card, cut a piece of Basic White to 4 1/8 x 4 1/8.  Now cut the gingham paper from the Perennial Lavender Designer Series Paper (returning) to 4 x 4.  Glue all together and add to the card front.

Cut the wreath using the Natural Prints dies (sadly retiring) from designer paper from the Perennial Lavender paper.  Add to the front of the card with Mini Dimensionals.  You might even need to cut some of the mini ones in half.

The little flowers are cut from the Flowering Zinnias DSP using the Lovely & Sweet dies (returning).  There are 4 little double sets of flowers in the dies.  Use all 4 and cut them out 3 times.  Save a flower for the inside of the card.  Of course, If you want less flowers, use less.

For the flowers, place them on a Stampin' Pierce Mat.  Press down in the center to make some dimension.  I use the blunt end of one of our old pokey tools.  Add tiny dots of glue to the wreath and add the flowers.

Tie a bow of Linen Thread (returning thankfully!) with a glue dot.

For the inside of the wreath, cut the smallest tag from the Tailor Made Tags dies (retiring sadly!)  Cut this from the same designer paper used for the spine and emboss it as well.

Use the Perennial Postage stamp set (retiring) for the saying.  I used part of one of the sayings.  Stamp with VersaMark with the part of the saying covered with tape that you do not want.  Remove the tape.  Don't forget that part!  Stamp on Melon Mambo card stock.  Cover with white embossing powder and heat with the Heat Tool.  Cut this out with the tag die placing it so that the saying is at the top and bottom of the tag.

Let me take a moment here to discuss embossing powders.  The Basic Embossing Powders have been unavailable to purchase for a while now.  SU is having to change providers.  They are not available with the new catalog, but they will eventually be back.  I think it will be in the same format.

Add the tags to each other and then add to the card with dimensionals.

NC Demo Blog Hop  Book Fold  Natural Print dies  Perennial Lavender DSP  Flowering Zinnias DSP  Tailor Made Tags dies  Distressed Tile EF  Linen Thread  Perennial Postage stamp set  Lovely and Sweet dies  Card inside  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

For the inside of the card, I used some of the gingham paper that I have left over.  I decided to add a little strip of Melon Mambo to the top.

The saying is from the Perennial Postage stamp set stamped in Pretty Peacock ink.  Add one flower.

Simply Zinnias Dies Going for the WOW!

The Flowering Zinnias Designer Series Paper first got my attention.  I've been playing with that paper for a week now and I'm having trouble putting it down.  I'm not usually a brights kind of person, but I love this paper.  Maybe it the fact that spring is coming.  Daffodils are blooming.  The maples are red with growth.  My camelia bush is gorgeous!!!  I'm ready for the bright.  Scroll down to see some of my samples from past posts.  They are really pretty.

Today I decided to usel the Simply Zinnias dies.  I haven't touched them.  OMG!  These dies are fantastic!

Simply Zinnias Dies Card  Zinnias EF  Purple Fine Shimmer Gems  Flowering Zinnias DSP  Plain Background  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

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

Take a piece of Basic White 4 x 5 1/4.  Run it through the Cut & Emboss Machine with the Zinnia 3D Embossing Folder.  This is a beauty.  One thing that is different is that the folder goes in a horizontal orientation.  For a vertical look of the flowers you'll need to turn your paper.  There's plenty of room for your paper to go either way.  You can also use the embossed paper embossed or debossed.  For this card I used the debossed side.  Either is perfectly correct.  Glue to the front of the card.

I did pull in a piece of the Flowering Zinnias designer paper that is 1 x 4.  Glue near the bottom of the front.  I use my Grid Paper to help me make sure all is straight.

Simply Zinnias Dies Card  Zinnias EF  Purple Fine Shimmer Gems  Flowering Zinnias DSP  Close Up  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

Now it's time to cut out the flower parts.  There are two different large flower parts.  Cut one of each from Highland Heather card stock.  Cut one of the flower buds from Highland Heather as well.  Use a Gorgeous Grape pad to add color from the center of the flowers out a little and along the top of the bud.  I used a Sponge Dauber to add the color.

Cut out two of the large leaves, a stem, and the small stem/leaves from Granny Apple Green card stock.  Add color to parts of these with a Granny Apple Green pad and Blending Brush.

Cut the middle of the flower and the circular star looking piece from Daffodil Delight card stock.

Assemble the flower.  I did use a Bone Folder to curl the top layer of the flower just a little.  Glue all pieces but add the flower itself with dimensionals.  I did anchor the large stem with a glue dot at the bottom.  Assemble the little baby plant.  Did you notice that the base of the bud is a little face?  So so cute!  Add the little plant with dimensionals as well.

Stamp the saying in Gorgeous Grape on Basic White.  Trim around the gratitude with a trimmer and the small letter phrase.  Cut the words into single words.  Add them to the card front with glue dots.  Add the word gratitude with dimensionals.

Complete the card with the Purple Fine Shimmer Gems.

For the inside add the saying in Gorgeous Grape from the Simply Zinnias stamp set.  Add more of the designer paper in 3/8 x 4.  Cut around a flower from the designer paper and glue near the bottom.
