Gather Together Stamp Set

Hello Friends,

Yes, I’m so glad to have you in my life, whether you’re a real life friend, a blog friend, a Facebook friend, etc.  I value you all and thank you for being in my life!

Gather Together Stamp SetThis card is perfect for letting your friends and/or family you’re glad that they’re a part of your life.  The sentiment and the large leaf are both stamps from the Gather Together Stamp Set, which is my favorite Autumn set.  The leaf is watercolored with Shaded Spruce Ink and the new Water Painters and is cut out with the matching die from the Gathered Leaves Dies Set.  Don’t you just love it when the stamp sets have matching dies? I know I sure do!

I also used a piece of the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper and a slightly larger piece of Shaded Spruce Cardstock on the front of a Whisper White Thick Cardstock base. It is wrapped with a piece of the new 3/8″ Embroidered Ribbon, a natural open-weave ribbon with rustic embroidered design.

Three Shaded Spruce Rhinestones come from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels pack. This pack of self-adhesive rhinestones has 140 pieces in Cherry Cobbler, Coastal Cabana, Night of Navy, Pumpkin Pie, and Shaded Spruce.  This package of rhinestones are FREE this month as an online ordering gift. (See below.)

This is a really quick and easy card to make for letting everyone know how happy you are to know them!

I’ve used the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper Stack on many of my cards because I love it so much!  It has 48 sheets of plaids suitable for fall, winter, spring and summer. It is also one of the designer papers on sale this month.  You can see all of the papers on sale below.

Four Fold Card Tutorial

No Comments
Four-fold Card with Mountain Air

 

Hello friends and happy Friday!

I’ve been asked to post a tutorial for this Four Fold Card I made a couple of weeks ago, so here it is! As usual, it looks a lot harder to make than it seems.  

 

Four-fold Card with Mountain AirHere is the front of the card as it looks when it comes out of the envelope.  It opens sort of like a booklet until you stretch it all out. (See photo below.) It does require a piece of 12″ x  12″ piece of card stock, but the good new is it fits in a regular envelope!    I used Whisper White Cardstock (CS), Marina Mist CS and Night of Navy CS for the card base and the Mountain Air Stamp Set for the design on the card.

Fancy, Four Fold Card made with the Mountain Air Stamp Set

Directions:

1.  Cut one piece of Marina Mist Cardstock to 11-1/2″ x  5-1/2″ and another piece to 2-3/4″ x  4-1/4″ for the base of the card.

2.  Score on the long side of the large piece of Marina Mist at 1/4″, 3-3/4″, and  7-1/4″. Turn the cardstock so that the 1/4″ score line is at the top of the scoring board.  Score at 5/8″ from the top of the CS to the LAST score line and no further.  This little strip will be cut off and it makes 3 of the 4 panels for the card. Make an accordian fold on the score lines with the largest panel on the bottom.

3.  Put adhesive on the 1/4″ flap of this folded card and adhere the second piece of Marina Mist CS to the flap so that the bottom of it is even with the rest of the card base.  Cut off the little piece of the flap that extends above it. This will be the front of the card when it is closed.  You should end up with 4 panels for the card base as shown in the photo above.

4.  Cut the CS for the next layer in Night of Navy Cardstock as follows and adhere it to the card base.  You will have 5 panels to adhere.

2 pieces at 2-1/2″ x  4″.    2 pieces at 3-1/4″ x  4-3/4″.    1 piece at 4″ x  5-1/4″.  Use the photo              above as a guide.

5.  Cut the Whisper White Cardstock as follows:

2 pieces at 2-1/4″ x  3-3/4″.     2 pieces at 3″ x  4-1/4″.    1 piece at 3-3/4″ x  5″.  These are the 5             pieces you will be stamping on before adhering them to the Night of Navy panels.

6.  I lined up the 5 panels of the Whisper White CS so the bottom of each piece was even.  Then I stamped the mountain image in Marina Mist Ink across the 5 panels so they were even, as well.

7.  Stamp the small trees in Just Jade Ink at the bottom of the mountains on all 5 panels.  Lightly sponge Just Jade Ink below the tree line down to the bottom of the panels.

8.  Stamp the clouds from the Mountain Air Stamp Set in Soft Sky Ink after stamping off some of the ink on a scrap piece of paper first.  Stamp the birds in Momento black Ink.

9.  Stamp 2 of the single trees in Just Jade Ink on scraps of Whisper White Cardstock and cut them out with the matching die from the Majestic Mountain Dies Set.  Stamp 2 of the image with two trees in Just Jade Ink and cut those out with the matching die.  Adhere all the trees on the inside panels with Multipurpose Glue or Stampin’ Seal.  Adhere one of the larger trees to the front panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

10.  Stamp the greeting on another scrap of Whisper White CS in Momento Black Ink and cut or punch it out as you like.  Adhere it to the card front with Dimensionals.

11.  Stamp the sentiment on a piece of Vellum Cardstock in Black StazOn Ink.  (Make sure to let it dry all the way before cutting it out and adhering it to the back panel as shown below.)  Adhere all 5 Whisper White decorated panels to the card base and you’re finished.  It may sound difficult and I’m sorry I didn’t take photos of all the steps before I made the card.  I will be sharing another Four Fold Card and I forgot to take photos of it, as well.

Gather Together Stamp Set and Plaid Tidings

Gather Together Stamp Set

Hello Friends,

I hope everyone’s had a good first half of the week.  Here it is the middle of September already and it’s still hot as blazes in Florida.  If you are in one of the areas where all the fires are located, I hope you are safe and that your home and property have not been destroyed.  I sure hope it rains soon so it will help all the firemen and first responders fighting to keep the fires from spreading!  I’m praying for everyone.

Gather Together Stamp Set,This is one of the cards I made today.  (The photo is a little dark.) I’m using the Gather Together Stamp Set and the Gathered Leaves Dies again. I just love this set! I’ve added images from the Rooted in Nature Stamp Set, and some Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper.  I have to tell you, I’m having a very difficult time using this paper.  I love the colors and plaids on both sides of the paper and don’t want to cut up any of it!  It is perfect for Fall and Christmas.  I will definitely being purchasing another paper pack before the Holiday Catalog ends.        The card base is made out of a 5-1/2″ by 8-1/2″ piece of Thick Whisper White Cardstock, folded and scored in the middle. I placed a 4″ by 5-1/4″ piece of the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper to the left side of the card base so that the sides are even. Next, I embossed a piece of Whisper White Cardstock with a retired brick-looking embossing folder.  (Stampin’ Up! now has a new 3-D folder called the Brick and Mortar Embossing Folder.)  I sponged around the edges of it with Rich Razzleberry Ink and adhered it to the left side of the card base, as well.

I inked up the middle of the tree stump image from the Rooted in Nature Stamp Set with Cinnamon Cider, stamped it on Whisper White Cardstock, and cut it out with my Paper Snips.  It was then glued onto the right side of the embossed panel.  The largest leaf in the Gather Together Stamp Set was stamped on a scrap of Whisper White in Black StazOn Ink.  I used Sponge Daubers to apply Rich Razzleberry, Bumblebee, Pumpkin Pie, and Shaded Spruce Inks onto it and then cut it out with the matching die.  Two of the smaller leaf images were also cut out of Shaded Spruce Cardstock with the matching dies from the Gathered Leaves Die Set and the tips were sponged with Mossy Meadow Ink.  Unfortunately, the wheat image from the stamp set does not have a die to match, so I stamped two of them in Bumblebee Ink and cut them out with my Paper Snips. It was a lot easlier than it looked so I was happy with that! Lastly, I stamped the greeting in Rich Razzleberry Ink and punched it out with the new Banners Pick a Punch. 

After layering everything on the card front, I took my Water Painter, squeezed a little water and ink in the lid of my Rich Razzleberry Ink Pad. You don’t need too much water-just enough to water it down a little bit. Dip the Water Painter in the ink and water and sprinkle it on the card by flicking the end of the painter.  Tie a bow with Linen Thread, add some bling and you’re ready to work on the inside of your card.

Get your Fall stamp sets and have some fun!  I use my cards for Fall birthdays, thinking about you, hello, Thanksgiving cards, etc.  Make sure to use the Hostess Code when placing your order! The Hostess Code for the month of September is BQEUWTME. Use this Hostess Code when completing your on-line order of $45.00 of more (before tax and shipping) to receive this month’s Hostess gift.  Do not use the Hostess Code if your on-line order is $150.00 or more (before tax and shipping).  Just email me that you’ve placed your order on-line and I will send you this month’s gift, PLUS you’ll receive Hostess Dollars to purchase product out of any of the current Stampin’ Up! catalogs.  This month’s Hostess gift is the Pearl Basic Jewels or clear Rhinestones.  I love them because they can be colored with the Stampin’ Blends or permanent markers to make lots of colors!

My First Christmas Craft for 2020

No Comments

Do you love altering things to make new projects? I’ve been doing quite a bit of it lately. The Dollar Tree has so many things that you can make fabulous projects out of for only $1! This project cost me $1 for the cutting board and I’d say about another $1 for the paper and ribbon. I only used a small part of each.)

I started by cutting a piece of paper from the Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper and adhering it to the cutting board with Stampin’ Seal. Next, I cut some of the house images from another sheet of the same paper pack using the Home Together Dies. (There are 2 sheets of paper in the pack full of different size houses and trees. You can use these dies to cut them out. I love it when Stampin’ Up! does that!)

After cutting out some of the houses and trees, I adhered them to the front of the paper using Stampin’ Dimensionals so they stood off the paper. Did I say that I love that paper?!!

I used a die from the Pretty Pines Dies Set, which just retired. You could use the Beautiful Boughs Dies Set that’s in this year’s Stampin’ Up! Catalog. Actually, I was originally going to use artificial greenery on this project, but I didn’t have any at home and I just HAD to get the cutting board finished right then! I will use it on the next one.

I’ve had the ribbon for several years and never used it. I don’t remember where I got it, but thought it would be cute to use. The ribbon was tied in a bow and placed on the cutting board with Glue Dots, as where the pine die-cuts.

The whole project only took a couple of hours to finish. It would of been faster, but about 15 minutes looking through all my artificial greenery and about 30 minutes on the phone with one of my daughters. (It never fails…She always calls me when I’m right in the middle of a project!) I hope you like it! Please leave a comment and let me know.

That’s all for tonight. Thanks for stopping 

Terry
