Rustic Harvest Card

Hello!

Today’s card features the Rustic Harvest Suite in the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog. It is a quick and easy card and a nice way to use several different Designer Series Papers. This is one of four cards we made in my Fall Card class last week. I will be posting the rest of the cards in my next few blog posts.

Here is how I made the card.

When I was deciding on a layout for this card, I decided to go back to a box of past sample cards that I keep for inspiration and ended up casing this card. I made it in the fall of 2019 and I used the Come to Gather Designer Series Paper that was in the September 2019-January 2020 Mini Catalog.

Here is how I made the card:

  • Card base – cut a piece of Basic Black cardstock at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, score a 4 1/4″, fold and crease with a bone folder.
  • Cut a piece of the Mossy Meadow paper from the Rustic Harvest Designer Series Paper pack at 4″ x 5 1/4″ and adhere to card front.
  • Cut one piece of Basic Black cardstock at 1 7/8″ x 5″ and another at 1 7/8″ x 4 1/2″. Cut two different pieces of DSP, one at 1 3/4″ x 4 7/8″ and one at 1 3/4″ X 4 3/8″ and adhere to the Basic Black strips. Adhere to card front as pictured.
  • Stamp greeting from the Hello Harvest stamp set with Mossy Meadow ink on a scrap piece of Basic White cardstock. Run through die cutting machine with coordinating die from the Rustic Pumpkin Dies.
  • Cut a piece of Cajun Craze cardstock at 2 3/4″ X 3 1/2″ to make the pumpkin. Run through die cutting machine with the two pumpkin die pieces. To make the stem, run a scrap piece of Soft Suede cardstock through the die cutting machine with the stem die.
  • Adhere stem to the smaller DSP strip. Adhere larger pumpkin piece, slightly overlapping the bottom of the stem. Adhere narrow pumpkin piece over the larger pumpkin piece. Adhere greeting over pumpkin with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Cut a piece of Basic White cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4″ and adhere to inside of card.

Texture Chic Fun Fold-Kylie’s International Blog Highlights

Hello! For those of you in the US, I hope you have been enjoying the Labor Day weekend. I can’t believe it’s been almost a year since I last participated in Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlights! Readers get to vote on their top five favorites in the gallery and the top 10 winners will get to participate in an International Blog Hop later this month. The theme is “thank you”.

My card features the Texture Chic Suite from the annual catalog. It is my most favorite suite and is the first one I purchased when the new catalog was introduced. The card is a fun fold that really shows off the beautiful Designer Series Papers to their fullest. I found this fold when I was browsing through Connie Stewart’s blog and decided to give it a try for a class project I was working on last month.

Here is how I made the card.

  • Card base – Cut a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock at 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.
  • Cut a piece of Petal Pink cardstock at 4″ x 10 1/2″ and score at 5 1/4″. Fold and crease sharply with a bone folder
  • Cut two pieces of Petal Pink cardstock at 2 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ and score both pieces lengthwise at 1/2″. Fold and crease sharply with a bone folder. Adhere pieces to both sides to the back of the bottom half of the larger piece of Petal Pink cardstock. Adhere entire piece to the Sahara Sand card base.
  • Cut a piece of Texture Chic Specialty Designer Series paper at 3 3/4″ x 5″. Cut a piece of Gold 1/4″ Shimmer Ribbon and tie into a bow around the DSP. Adhere to card front.
  • Prepare pieces for the card front collage. Cut a piece of Distressed Gold paper to fit the grid die from the Chic Dies. Cut a piece of an Adhesive Sheet to fit and adhere to paper. Run though the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. Adhere to card front over the ribbon. This piece will be the base for the collage.
  • Die cut two different leaf shapes from scrap pieces of Soft Succulent cardstock. Back the cardstock with Adhesive Sheet before running through die cutting machine.
  • Die cut three flower bases with scrap pieces of Texture Chic Specialty Designer Series Paper. Die cut three open flower accent pieces from scrap pieces of Petal Pink cardstock. Before die cutting, adhere pieces of Adhesive Sheet to each piece. Adhere the accent pieces to the flower bases.
  • Adhere leaf pieces to top part of the Distressed Gold grid piece. Arrange the three flowers and adhere with liquid glue . Add a Champagne Rhinestone to the center of each flower.
  • Cut four pieces of DSP at 1 3/4″ x 5″ for the fun fold side flaps. Select two different pieces of DSP. Adhere one set to the front of the flaps and the other set to the inside of the flaps.
  • Cut another piece of the DSP used for the inside flaps at 1 1/4″ x 4″ and adhere to inside upper part of the Petal Pink card flap.
  • Cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock at 3 3/4″ x 5″. Stamp the swoosh image from the Season of Chic stamp set with Petal Pink ink, stamping off once before stamping onto the cardstock. Stamp the greeting with Sahara Sand over the swoosh image. Adhere a large Brushed Brass Butterfly to the upper left corner. Adhere piece to inside.

I’d be so appreciative if you would vote for my card! Click on the vote image below. Once you are in the gallery, click on the heart at the top right hand side of the picture as the hearts appear.

Ringed With Nature Fun Fold Card

Hello!

This is the last day for Sale-A-Bration! Today’s card is another one that features the Ringed With Love Designer Series Paper that is still available as a free gift with a $50 purchase. This card is a Z fun fold that I came across on Lisa Curcio’s blog and YouTube channel where she shows how to make it. I love this fold because it is a great way to show off any Designer Series Paper and while it looks difficult to make, it is actually very easy! This card also uses the Ringed With Nature Bundle that coordinates with the DSP.

Click on the blog link above to go to Lisa Curcio’s post for all of the cutting dimensions and instructions on how to put the card together. Here is how I made my card.

  • Card base – Thick Basic White cardstock 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″, fold and crease sharply with a bone folder.
  • Cut piece of Parakeet Party cardstock at 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″. Cut piece of Ringed With Love DSP at 4″ x 5 1/4″ and adhere to cardstock. Adhere piece to card front.
  • Die cut and emboss one of the larger tree rings from the Tree Rings Hybrid Embossing Folder with a piece of Soft Suede cardstock. Die cut several different leaves with scrap pieces of Crushed Curry, Evening Evergreen and Parakeet Party cardstock. Adhere to tree ring with Mini Glue Dots.
  • Adhere two pieces of a contrasting piece of DSP cut at 4″ x 5 1/4″ to both sides of the inside of the card base.
  • Cut a piece of Thick Basic White cardstock for the inside Z fold as per Lisa Curcio’s instructions.
  • Cut strip of the tree trunk DSP and follow the instructions for cutting the strips before adding them to the fold.
  • Stamp the acorns from the Ringed With Nature stamp set. First stamp the bottom of the acorns with Poppy Parade ink and then stamp the acorn tops with Soft Suede ink. Stamp the greeting on the smallest panel with Soft Suede ink. Adhere to inside of card as instructed.
  • To finish off the card, adhere the tree ring to the card front with two Stampin’ Dimensionals at the top and two at the bottom, leaving space in the middle of the tree ring. Cut a length of ribbon at 18″ and slide one end through the middle of the tree ring. I used some retired 1/2″ white ribbon from my stash. You can use one or two Mini Glue Dots to adhere the ribbon at the back of the card in order to keep it in place. Tie ribbon into either a bow or a double knot, which is how I tied it.

Wonderful World Postage Stamp Card

Hello!

Tomorrow is the last day of Sale-A-Bration! I have one more card for you featuring the Wonderful World Stamp Set and Designer Series Paper that is still available as a free gift with a $100 purchase.

Here is how I made the card.

  • Card base – Cut a piece of Orchid Oasis cardstock at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″ and crease with a bone folder.
  • Cut a piece of the Wonderful World DSP at 4″ x 5 1/4″ and adhere to card front.
  • Cut a piece of Basic White cardstock at 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″ and run through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine with the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder.
  • Use the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch to cut four assorted flowers from the DSP sheet with rows of different flowers. Adhere the pieces to the embossed piece with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals in the four corners of each of the pieces, spacing them evenly and leaving some extra space in the middle in order to tie the ribbon.
  • Cut a length of Orchid Oasis 1/8″ Metallic Woven Ribbon and another with the Orchid Oasis Bakers Twine from the 2022-2024 Bakers Twine Pack. Tie into a bow around the middle of the floral piece and trim ends. Adhere piece to card front.
  • Cut a piece of Basic White cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4″. Stamp the rose image from the Wonderful World stamp set in the bottom left corner by using the direct to rubber technique. Color the flower part of the stamp with a Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Write Marker and the leaves with a Pear Pizzazz Marker. Huff on the stamp to activate the ink and stamp in the corner. I used the birthday greeting from the Go To Greetings stamp set and stamped with Orchid Oasis ink. Adhere to inside of card.

This was a quick and easy card to put together.

Wonderful World Card

Hello!

Today’s card features the Wonderful World Stamp set and coordinating Designer Series Paper, another Sale-A-Bration free gift you can earn with a $100 purchase. This is a lovely set of products and the colors of the DSP are right up my alley – pinks, purples and greens!

Here is how I made the card.

  • Card base – cut a piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock at 4 1/4″ x 11″, score at 5 1/2″, fold and crease with a bone folder.
  • Cut one piece each of Melon Mambo and Pear Pizzazz cardstock at 3 1/4″ x 4″ each. Cut two pieces of Wonderful World Designer Series Paper at 3 1/8″ x 3 7/8″ and adhere to cardstock pieces. Adhere to card front.
  • Cut a piece of Basic White cardstock at 2 3/4″ x 3 1/2″. Use the direct to rubber technique and Stampin’ Write Markers to color the large floral image stamp from the Wonderful World stamp set. Color the top flower with Flirty Flamingo, larger flower with Melon Mambo and stems with Mossy Meadow. Huff on the stamp to reactivate the ink and stamp onto the piece of white cardstock. This is a Distinktive stamp which is made to create realistic shading on the image, so there will be areas of light and dark.
  • Stamp greeting with Mossy Meadow ink at bottom of card. I used the birthday greeting from the Pansy Patch stamp set. Adhere to card front. Embellish with a few Melon Mambo dots from the Glossy Dots Assortment.
  • Cut a piece of Basic White cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4″. Use the large floral image stamp and color the top flower with Flirty Flamingo and the top part of the stem with Mosy Meadow. Stamp in bottom left corner and adhere to inside of card.
