Welcome to the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge # 639.  Today we have a sketch.

CCMC639

I have another simple card today using the Flowering Blooms bundle and the Peony Garden Designer Series Paper.

CCMC #639 Flowering Blooms Project by Jo Anne Hewins

The card base is Thick Whisper White cut to 4 1/4 x 11, score and fold at 5 1/2.  Cut the Gray Granite piece of the Peony Garden Designer Series Paper the same size as the card front, 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  Glue to the front of the card.

The Petal Pink patterned paper is cut to 2 x 4 3/4.  Center from top to bottom, but add just a little to the right of the front.  

Stamp the flower from Flowering Blooms in Gray Granite ink on Whisper White.  Color in with the Petal Pink Combo and the Soft Sea Foam Combo of blends.  Cut out using the largest circle from the Layering Circles dies.  Now run it through the Die Cut & Emboss Machine using the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder.  Glue to the card in the center of the pink piece.

Stamp the saying from Flowering Blooms in Gray Granite ink on white.  Trim around it.  Cut a piece of Soft Sea Foam card stock 1/4 x 2 1/8.  Add to the card.  Add the saying with dimensionals.  Finish the card with some of the Elegant Faceted Gems.  So pretty!

The inside is all Flowering Blooms.  Stamp the saying and flower in Gray Granite.

I think this card is elegant.  Of course you can change the saying and make it for any occasion!

Gather Together Simplicity

Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #636.  This is a color challenge using Pumpkin Pie, Bumblebee, and Basic Gray.

CCMC636

Keeping in mind that it's fall, I had to make an autumn card for this challenge using the Gather Together bundle.

CCMC #636 Gather Together by Jo Anne Hewins

The card base is Thick Whisper White 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored and folded at 4 1/4.  Cut a piece of the Basic Gray patterned paper to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  I love making designer paper fill the entire card front!  This paper is from the Neutrals 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper.  Unfortunately, this isn't one of the papers on sale at 15% off, but you definitely want to check out the papers that are at the end of this post!  Use the Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere this piece.  It gives it a little give long enough for you to get it just right.  Don't dawdle though.

There's another pattern of the Basic Gray across the card that  measures 1/2 x 4 1/4.  This pattern is actually on the back of the wood look lined gray.  When gluing this, make sure that your words are oriented correctly.

CCMC #636 Gather Together Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

Stamp the pumpkin images in Basic Gray ink on Whisper White card stock.  You'll need one of the large pumpkins and 1 of the group of two pumpkins.  Color the pumpkins using the Pumpkin Pie Blends Combo pack.  Color the stem with a Basic Gray marker from the Neutrals Stampin' Write Markers.  Cut out the pumpkins with the Gathered Leaves dies.  Adhere to the card with dimensionals.

Stamp the wheat in Bumblebee ink on white 3 times.  These will need to be cut out with snips.  Add dimensionals.  The ends of the wheat may need to be trimmed.  Tuck them in behind the pumpkins.

The word THANKS is cut from Pumpkin Pie card stock using the Well Written dies.  Back the card stock with some of the Adhesive Sheets.  That makes adding the word to the card front so easy!

Finish off the card with some of the Bumblebee dots from the 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots.

CCMC#636 Gather Together Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

For the inside of the card, use a saying from the Gather Together stamp set in Basic Gray.  Add some of the wheat in Bumblebee in the lower right corner.

This card is pretty in it's simplicity.  I bet you know someone who deserves this card.  A list of supplies are below and link to my online store.  I would appreciate your order so much.  Need a catalog?  Just let me know!

Friday Tutorial Ornate Garden by Me

Today we have a beautiful card that I added to our Tutorial Medley group.  It uses the Ornate Garden Suite.

Ornate Garden Suite by Jo Anne Hewins

I was proud of this one.  Here are the instuctions below.

Ornate Garden

Supplies:

Stamp Sets: Ornate Style #152572, Ornate Thanks #149471, Ornate Style Bundle #154119

Cardstock: Highland Heather #146986, Whisper White #100730

Ink: Versamark #102283, Mango Melody Blends Combo #154888, Balmy Blue Blends Combo #154830, Highland Heather Blends Combo #154887, Purple Posy Blends Combo #154896, Mossy Meadow Blends Combo #154890, Early Espresso Pad #147114

Tools & Accessories: Ornate Layer dies #152726, Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder #109129, Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding #151326

Designer Paper: Ornate Garden Specialty DSP #152488

Misc: Paper Snips #103579, Take Your Pick Tool #144107, Grid Paper #130148, Stampin’ Sponges #141337, Heat Tool #129053, Paper Trimmer #152392, Glue Dots #103683, Multipurpose Liquid Glue #110755, Foam Adhesive Strips #141825

Measurements:

Card Base: Highland Heather 5 ½ x 8 ½, score at 4 1/4

Cardstock #2: Whisper White 3 ¾ x 5 (Use 1 or 2, see directions)

Cardstock #3:

Designer Paper: 3 5/8 x 4 7/8 gold outlined flowers

Instructions:

Stamp around the card base with the large flower stamp from Ornate Style in Versamark to leave a pattern around the edges.

Sponge the Ornate Garden Specialty paper with Highland Heather ink. Rub over the surface with a tissue to wipe away extra ink and allow the gold to shine.

Stamp the large flower stamp again in the center of the Whisper White layer in Early Espresso ink.

Color in the image. Use the following blends: Crushed Curry combo, Balmy Blue combo, Mossy Meadow combo, Dark Purple Posy, and Dark Highland Heather.

Use the Ornate Layers dies to cut. You need the long thin stitched rectangle. Cut from the middle of the flowers. Now cut another rectangle directly next to the left and another to the right. If you wish you can use the outer part of this layer to make the Whisper White layer between the base and the patterned paper. This would save paper. If not, use the second Whisper White layer for this.

Use Grid Paper to help with placement of the strips. Find the middle of the patterned paper at the top and the bottom and use that to place the middle strip. Keep strips in the correct order. Add with Foam Adhesive Strips. Now add to the left and right looking at the spacing between the middle strip and edges of the layer.

Add all layers together with Multipurpose Liquid Glue

Color a 5 inch piece of Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding with a Dark Balmy Blue Blend. Add across the lower part of the strips. Use a glue dot on the under side of the strips to add the ribbon. Add another glue dot under the ribbon across the top to stabilize.

Stamp the work THANKS from the Ornate Thanks stamp set in Versamark on a scrap of Highland Heather card stock. Add Gold Emboss Powder and melt with the Heat Tool. Trim using Paper Snips or the Paper Trimmer. Add across the ribbon with glue dots.

I used a 13 inch piece of colored seam binding to tie a double bow. Add with a glue dot.

Here are an additional picture for you.

Ornate Garden Suite Thank You

Hello to you!  Today for the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge we are using Terracotta Tile, Old Olive, and Crushed Curry.

CCMC611

These colors are featured in the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper!  Isn't that fun!  Here is my card.

CCMC#611 Ornate Thanks Card by Jo Anne Hewins

My project begins with a 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 piece of Old Olive card stock.  Fold at 4 1/4.

I have a piece of the green designer paper that is 1 1/2 x 4 that is placed vertically on the left side of center of the card.

My next piece of the designer paper is the small flowers paper.  It's cut to 2 1/2 x 5 1/4.  Run a length of the Crushed Curry Seam Binding across the center of this piece and tape to the back.  Add the layer to the card front.

The next layer is cut from the Stitched Nested Labels in Old Olive.  Stamp this layer with the word seriously from Ornate Thanks.  Use Old Olive ink.  I started near the top center of the layer and just built out from there.  Add to the card front with dimensionals.

CCMC #611 Ornate Thanks Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

Stamp the large THANK YOU in Terracotta Tile on Whisper White.  Trim closely around the words.  Add to the card.  I tried to make the seriously show between the words.

Stamp three of the single flowers from Ornate Style in Memento Black.  Color in using the Light Old Olive Blend for the leaf, the Terracotta Tile marker from the 2019-2021 In Color Stampin' Write Markers, and the Crushed Curry marker from the Regals Stampin' Write Markers.  Fussy cut each and add to the label.  

Add a bow using the Crushed Curry Seam Binding with a glue dot.

CCMC #611 Ornate Thanks Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

Stamp the sentiment inside the card again from Ornate Thanks.  Add 3 more flowers and color as on the front.
