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.

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
