Love Fall?

Hi! Today I am hopping with the Stamp It! Group for a Halloween/Fall themed hop!

I came across this fun and easy fold and thought I’d share it with you today for my fall card.

Lovely as a Tree, StampItHop, Fall, Painted Autumn, Stampin' Up!, SU!

I used Lovely as a Tree for my center panel giving it fall colors.  I colored directly with markers on the stamp, then used a blender pen and ink to fill in the trunk and grass.  The birds are hand drawn with a marker.   I sponged a bit of Soft Sky around the tree.   The sentiment is from One Big Meaning.  I colored the Thank You with the Cajun Craze marker so that I could omit the other words on the stamp.  The acorns are from Painted Harvest and stamped in Crumb Cake for the nut and Early Espresso for the top.

The Designer Paper on the outside is from the Painted Autumn Designer Series pack.  The inside panels are from the Wood Textures Designer Series stack.

So, how do you make the card.  Here are the directions:

  1. Base: 4 1/4″ x 8″ – score at 1 1/4″, 2 1/2″, 5 1/2″ and 6 3/4″
  2. Fold down on the 1 1/4″ and 6 3/4″ score lines and up on the other two.
  3. Designer Series Paper Panels measure 1″ x 4″.
  4. The center image panel is 2 1/2 x 3 3/4.  The Cajun Craze mat is 2 3/4 x 4″.
  5. The sentiment panel is 1″ x 5 1/4″. The Early Espresso mat is 1 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.
  6. To attach the bridge, lay the card so it is folded on the left hand side but flat on the right hand side.  See picture below.
  7. Apply Tear & Tape to just the two ends of the bridge so that the card can move and stand upright.
  8. The size of the card allows for mailing in our standard card envelopes.

I hope you like my card!

A Little Sparkle – Team Stamp It! Blog Hop

Hi! Welcome to the Team Stamp It! Christmas in July Blog Hop!!  So excited to be hopping with you today!  I just love how this turned out and it is so easy to do!

Lovely As A Tree, LaaT, Star of Light, SU!, Stampin' Up!, Embossing Paste, Glitter, Christmas

Let me show you a close up of the tree – and then explain what I did:

Lovely As A Tree, LaaT, SU!, Stampin' Up!, Christmas, Embossing Paste, Glitter

Do you see all that sparkle?  I added Dazzling Diamond Glitter to the Embossing Paste and then swiped it over my stamped image!  IRL it looks like it is snowing!  With just a thin layer of Embossing Paste, the glitter sticks and looks so pretty!

As you probably guessed, I used Lovely As A Tree for my image.  I colored the tree with Garden Green and the trunk with Chocolate Chip.  Once it dried, I covered the entire layer with the mixture of Dazzling Diamonds and Embossing Paste.  The paste dried in no time!

I layered the image on Basic Black.  I tied silver thread around the top and then layered the panel on a piece of Designer Series Paper from the Be Merry DSP pack.  That was then layered on Silver Foil and finally onto a Garden Green base.

The sentiment is stamped in Basic Black Archival ink on a scrap of Whisper White then die cut with the Bunch of Banners Framelits.  This was popped into a banner of Garden Green using the same die.  Lastly, a scrap of SIlver Foil was used again with the same die, cut in half and adhered to the back.

I’d love to know what you think of this card.  I’ll be making some of these for my cards this year as I am just so happy with how it looks!

Summer Time Stamp It Blog Hop

Hi! Today I am playing along in the Team Stamp It Summer Blog Hop!

School ended on Thursday for my children and we celebrated by heading to the local ice cream shop.  That inspired my card for today – as this represents the start of summer for us.

I used the new Marbled background stamp, inked in Powder Pink for the background.  The ice cream swirl is also Powder Pink and the cone is Crumb Cake.  The sentiment is stamped in Early Espresso.  The sentiment and ice cream cone are from the Cool Treats stamp set.

I added a bit of Gold Thread behind my main panel and dimensionals on the ice cream cone.

Do you have a tradition that kicks off summer for you?

Team Stamp It Valentine’s Blog Hop

Hi!  Welcome to the Team Stamp It! Valentine’s Day Blog Hop!  I hope you are enjoying the projects we have prepared for you for Valentine’s Day!

I went a little non-traditional on my color scheme – hope you don’t mind.

SU! Love You Lots, Envelope Punch Board

My all time favorite hostess set is the Love You Lots set – the animals are just adorable and make great cards for any occasion.  Today I am using this little frog.  I used the new Watercolor Pencils to color him in along with a blender pen.  The hearts on the top of the card and on the tag for the box are punched using the Confetti Heart punch.  The heart on the sentiment is one of our Brights Enameled Embellishments.  I used solid black baker’s twine wrapped around 4 times as my ribbon.

Here is a close up of the card:

SU! Love You Lots

Here is the box – thanks to Michelle Long from the Artisan Design Team for the idea:

SU! Love You Lots, Envelope Punch Board

The box is made using the Envelope Punch Board as follows:

  •  Cut a 6×6 piece of Designer Series Paper
  • Score and punch each side at 2 1/8″ and 3 7/8″
  • Cut in to form tabs on two opposite sides
  • Fold on all score lines
  • Adhere tabs using Tear & Tape

Here is a picture of the box scored and the tabs cut:

The belly band around the box is a 7 1/2 x 2″ strip of Vellum card stock.  Score at 6 1/4″, 5″, 2 1/2″, and 1 1/4″.  After scoring, use the Scalloped Tag Topper punch to punch both ends.  Tie together and add a tag.

These boxes hold around 5 Hershey Chocolate hearts.
