Nature's Harvest Quick Card

I have a very simple card for you today using the Nature's Harvest stamp set and the Watercolor Shapes stamp set.

Nature's Harvest  Watercolor Shapes  Scalloped Contours dies  Windowpane Check Ribbon  Brushed Brass Butterflies  Simply Elegant Trim  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

The base is Evening Evergreen measuring 4 1/4 x 11, score and fold at 5 1/2.  Stamp around the edges of the card with the large flower from Nature's Harvest.  Use Evening Evergreen ink.  Stamp off so that the images will be a little muted.

The Basic White panel is cut using the 2nd largest rectangle from the Scalloped Contours dies.  In the center of the panel, stamp the largest rectangle from the Watercolor Shapes stamp set.  Stamp off the stamp.  Use Soft Succulent ink.  Now stamp the large flower stamp in Evening Evergreen.  The stamp is a little bigger than the rectangle, but that is just fine.  Glue this layer to the center of the card front.

Tie a length of the Windowpane Check Ribbon around the card.  Use a glue dot under the first tie.  That will hold the ribbon and allow you to tie the ribbon tight.  Tie into a knot. Tie around several inches of the gold trim from the Simply Elegant Twine.  Trim about a half inch from the know.  Use the Take Your Pick Tool to pull apart each of the small strands.

Stamp the saying on Basic White and trim around it with Paper Snips.  Glue under the images.

Embellish with some of the Brushed Brass Butterflies.

Gift Card Holder with Pretty Prints Designer Series Paper

Today I have a very simple gift card holder using the Pretty Prints Designer Series Paper.  I must say that I cased this card from Sandy Herman.  Sandy is one of my Luv 2 Create team members.  She shared a different card using this layout in one of our team meetings.  I really liked it.  This is my version of the fun fold gift card.

Gift Card Holder  Fern EF  Pretty Prints DSP  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

Start with a base of  Coastal Cabana measuring 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.

Next you'll need a piece of Basic White that measures 4 x 5 1/4.  Run this through the Cut & Emboss Machine with the Fern 3D Embossing Folder.  Adhere to the base.

Cut another piece of Coastal Cabana to 3 1/4 x 1/4.  Glue to the center of the white layer.

Cut a piece of the Bermuda Bay/Coastal Cabana designer paper to 3 x 12.  Score at 4 and 8.  The middle section of this paper will go in the middle of the Coastal Cabana layer.  Bend the end sections toward the middle.  For the section to the far left.  Use the Label Me Lovely punch to punch an opening from the top and centered.   This will allow the gift card to be added and taken out more easily.

It's hard to see from this picture, but the punch has been made here.  Use Tear & Tape to adhere this layer to the center layer.  Put the tape along the bottom and to the right side only in the center section.  DO NOT PUT TEAR & TAPE ON THE LEFT SIDE.  If you do the gift card will not fit.

To decorate the right side I cut a stem from the Forever Flourishing dies in Basic White card stock.  You might want to add some Adhesive Sheets to the back of the white CS.  Then you'll be able to peel and stick.  Close the right section.

You'll need a piece of Basic White cut to 2 3/4 x 4.  Stamp the fern in Coastal Cabana.  Some are stamped off first.  This stamp is from the Nature's Prints stamp set.  The saying in the middle is from the same set.  Stamp it using Bermuda Bay ink.   Cut this piece with the Scallop Contours dies.  Add in the center with dimensionals.

That's all there is to this card.  Easy peasy!

Thanks so much for joining me today.  I appreciate it so much! 

I do send a group of tutorials out each month to customers who purchase $50 from me.  Usually there are around 25 made up from different demonstrators.

Sweetest Cherries and a Thank You

Hello to you today!  I have a sweet little card for you!  After all even the name is Sweetest Cherries.  There is even a punch called the Cherry Builder Punch.  That goes together to make the Sweetest Cherries Bundle.  You can find it in our annual catalog on page 19, #158717.

I'm loving the little bit of red, white, and blue on this card.  It reminds me of an American summer.

Sweetest Cherries  Cherry Builder Punch  Scalloped Contours dies  In Color Baker's Twine  Tea Boutique DSP. In Color DSP  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

Begin with a card base of Crumb Cake 4 1/4 x 11.  Score and fold at 5 1/2.  I stamped off my Soft Suede ink to stamp the pattern in the background.  It's really ok to stamp down each side.  The middle will be covered.  If you look closely, but you don't have too, you'll see that my stamping isn't perfectly matched.  It's fine.

From the 2022-2024 In Color 6 x 6 stack, I've chosen a dotted piece of the Orchid Oasis cut to 1 1/2 x 5 1/2.  Take 2 pieces of Basic White cut to 3/4 x 6.  Cut close to one side on both with the large scalloped die from the Scalloped Contours dies.  Glue the pieces to each side of the orchid paper.  Notice that each side is about the same size and match the scallops so they are the same from each side.  Glue the panel down the center of the card front.  Trim the ends flush with the base.

Stamp the saying from Sweetest Cherries in Orchid Oasis on Basic White.  Trim around each word.  I added these down the center of the panel with glue dots.

Punch the cherries from paper in the Tea Boutique 6 x 6 stack.  The color is Sweet Sorbet.  I cut the paper at 1 1/4 inch strips so that I wouldn't waste a lot of paper.  It's precious!  Punch 3.  One is on the inside.  Punch the stem and leaves from the Parakeet Party paper in the In Color stack.  Once again I cut the paper in strips to punch.  I still felt that I wasted some paper.  I worked around and could punch additional stems or leaves in that space.  I didn't save a lot but it made me feel better!  Remember that there is an extra cherry on the inside of the card.  Add the cherries with dimensionals.  Glue the tip of the stem on the cherry.  I added the leaves on dimensionals.  I placed them so that the stem rested just slightly on the leaf to give the stem it's lift.

Use the Sorbet twine from the 2022-2024 In Color Baker's Twine Pack.  Run this around the card twice and then tie it into a bow just to the left.  

Stamp the SWEET on Basic White in Sweet Sorbet.  Trim around the word.  If you don't like to fussy cut you can just make it into a rectangle and add.  Either way add the dimensionals to the top and bottom to avoid the twine.

Finish off with some Sorbet dots from the 2022-2024 In Color Matte Decorative Dots.

For the inside, stamp a row of the crisscross pattern across the bottom.  Remember to stamp off the Soft Suede.  Add your cherry.  I usually add a white layer inside my cards.  I just didn't think this one needed that.

So there you go.  We are ready for summer!

Thanks for the visit today.  I'm trying to post 3 days a week now.  I do appreciate your loyalty in checking in with me.  Just an update.  It has been 6 months now since my stroke.  I'm doing great.  Sometimes my words come out jumbled a little.  Hopefully that will continue to improve.  I'm still trying to work on the stress and that's why I'm not posting as much as before.

Angels of Peace Fun Fold

I love the angels in the Angels of Peace stamp set found on page 42 of the August-December Mini Catalog for Stampin' Up!  I used this stamp set for my addition to the Tutorial Medley group for October.  Here is my card.

October Tutorial Medley Angels of Peace Card with Belly Band  Ornate Layers dies  Ornate Frames dies  Harvest Meadow DSP  Jo Anne Hewins

Although I love angels, I did have a little trouble making a card using this set.  I do love this one and I've seen others on Pinterest that have my juices going!

This card uses the Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper, the Ornate Layers dies, and the paper piecing technique.

Here are all the measurements and directions.

Angels of Peace

Supplies:

Stamp Sets: Angels of Peace (156365)

Cardstock: Misty Moonlight (153081), Basic White (159276), Soft Suede (115318)

Ink: Memento Black (132708), Misty Moonlight (153118), Petal Pink Combo Blends (154893)

Tools & Accessories: Ornate Frames dies (150664), Ornate Layers dies (152726), Snips (103579), Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack (153620), Adhesive Sheets (152334), Foam Adhesive Sheets (152815), Tear & Tape (154031), Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430), Mini Glue Dots (103683), Bone Folder (102300)

Designer Paper: Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper (156494)

Measurements:

Card Base: Misty Moonlight, score at 2 1/8 from each side, Misty Moonlight 1 x 10 for belly band

Cardstock #2: Basic White 3 ½ x 5 for frame, 2 ¼ x 3 5/8 for angel, scrap for sentiment

Designer Paper #1: 2 pieces of Misty Moonlight 2 x 5 3/8, scraps of blue and bumblebee for paper piecing

Instructions:

Score and fold card base 2 1/8 from each side. Use Bone Folder to burnish folds. Add the 2 pieces of Harvest Meadow DSP to each panel of the outside of the card.

Stamp the angel on the 2 ¼ x 3 5/8 piece of Basic White in Memento Black ink. Stamp the angel again on the Moonlight designer paper and on the Bumblebee designer paper (wings) and on a scrap of Soft Suede (hair). Place some of the Adhesive Sheets to the backs of these pieces of designer paper. That will turn your pieces into stickers.

Carefully cut with snips the areas of the paper for the dress, bird, hair, and wings. Remove the backing and add to the angel. Cut right on the line or just outside. It will look great because you also have the lines from the original angel. Color the skin areas with the Light Petal Pink Blend.

Cut the fancy frame from the other piece of white using the Ornate Layers dies.

Add the angel rectangle to the fancy frame using a piece of the Foam Adhesive Sheet. Add the twine from the Flowers for Every Season around to the back of the angel. Make a bow from the twine to add later.

Stamp the sentiment in Misty Moonlight on a scrap of white and cut out using the Ornate Frames dies. Add a thin strip of Foam Adhesive Sheet to the top and bottom of the sentiment and add to the bottom center of the angel.

Add the bow with a glue dot.

Bend the band around the card making sure that the band can be pulled off and on the card. Adhere the band ends together with Tear & Tape. Adhere the angel piece to the band. Again, use Tear & Tape to the band. Use the design of the frame to help determine the center of the angel piece. You want it to be centered on the card front.
