Tweet Leaves

Oh…I do love this little stamp and this technique together!  And since it is Saturday it is time for the Create with Connie and Mary Holiday Edition 2012 Saturday Challenge for our subscribers!  Oh…and just a quick little note…I’m now official!  I’m a ‘Dirty Girl’ on SCS!

The base of the card is More Mustard 3 /12 x 5 1/2 finished.  I took another piece of the More Mustard, ran through the Woodgrain Embossing Folder, added two Early Espresso Brads and added to the card front.  I took a piece of the Cherry Cobbler dotted dsp from the Orchard Harvest pack, added a Lucky Limeade scallop strip (large scallop strip edgelit), wrapped a piece of Early Espresso 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon around it then added the panel to the card base.  I cut out a Very Vanilla leaf from the Autumn Accent die, embossed the stamp with clear embossing powder then sponged Cherry Cobbler, More Mustard and Lucky Limeade ink on the stamp.  I added the leaf using dimensionals.  I stamped the greeting using Early Espresso, cut with the Bitty Banner Framelit and added using dimensionals.

Tweet Leaves

This is my very favorite way to use this stamp – emboss resist!  This card is really easy to make…the base of the card is Very Vanilla and I ran it through the Woodgrain Embossing Folder.  Next I took another piece of Very Vanilla and did the piercing with a combination of the Festive Template the straight line.  I stamped cut out a Very Vanilla leaf using the Autumn Accents Die, stamped using Versamark and embossed in clear.  I sponged Cherry Cobbler, More Mustard and Lucky Limeade on it, layered it onto a Champagne Glitter leaf and added to the panel.  I took a piece of the Champagne Glitter paper and added to the panel.  I stamped the for you using Early Espresso on Lucky Limeade, cut with the Bitty Banner Framelit, added a ‘bow’ (click here for my tutorial) from Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding and a gold Brad, then added the panel to the card base using dimensionals.  I just love how these pretty colors just ‘pop’ on the Very Vanilla!

Perfectly Preserved

I am part of the ‘Creative Crew” for Stampin’ Up! demos over on Splitcoaststampers.  Every month we have a series of challenges and this month it was fall and sewing.  This is one of the projects I made for it and it is perfect to talk about Fall on Create with Connie and Mary Holiday Edition too!

The base of the card is Lucky Limeade.  I took a piece of Natural Cream and added a piece of the Cajun Craze dsp on the bottom.  Next I made the label by altering one of the window label cut out pieces, piecing around the inside and adding the panel.  I took a strip of fabric and used it as my ‘ribbon’ by tying it around the panel then adding this to the card base using dimensionals.  I stamped the jar using Early Espresso on Very Vanilla and used the Cannery Framelits to cut it out.  I made the lid by add some fabric to cardstock then using the framelit on that.  I added a piece of Early Espresso 1/8″ Taffeta ribbon than added the lid using dimensionals.  I did the pair in Lucky Limeade, More Mustard and Early Espresso, cut out with the framelits then added inside the jar.  The greeting was stamped using Pacific Point.

Wonderfall

This really is a quick and easy card!  The base of the card is Lucky Limeade.  I took a piece of Very Vanilla, ran it through the Woodgrain Embossing Folder, layered it onto Rich Razzleberry then to the card front using dimensionals.  I used the Autumn Accents Die to cut leaves out of Very Vanilla then stamped the images from Wonderfall – large leaf/Lucky Limeade, medium leaf/Rich Razzleberry, small leaf/Night of Navy then layered these onto the card front. (HINT:  I used the stamp-a-ma-jig to make sure everything lined up good!)  I stamped the greeting using Versamark on Night of Navy and and embossed in white (my secret Create word is “it”), cut out using the Bitty Banners framelit and added to the card front.  I made the bow from Lucky Limeade Ruffled Ribbon, Rich Razzleberry Button and Whisper White Bakers Twine.  The button is added using Glue Dots.

I’m going to ‘mix things up’ a bit and start by showing you my card!  Well…technically this is the SECOND card I made for today but after I finished the first one, I just was NOT happy with it.  Have you ever had that happen to you?  Well, after looking at that first one for awhile and deciding I didn’t like it, I made this one!

The base of the card is 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 More Mustard and I ran it through the Woodgrain Embossing Folder.  I used my Scallop Square Duo die and did the largest one in Raspberry Ripple, layered a piece of the apple print from the Orchard Harvest dsp pack in the center then added this to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the jar using Early Espresso, the lid using Cajun Craze, the flower using More Mustard, the applie in Raspberry Ripple and More Mustard and the leaves using Early Espresso and Lucky Limeade.  These were all cut out using the Cannery Set Framelits  The greeting is stamped in Early Espresso on Lucky Limeade then cut out using the Bitty Banner Framelit.  The jar is added to the card front using dimensionals.  I wrapped a small piece of Early Espresso 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon around the lid then added to the jar.  The flower was added using dimensionals and a Rhinestone added to the center.  The apples were added inside the jar then the greeting added using dimensionals to finish it off.

Tweet Leaves

Okay…and now onto my card for today (which I just LOVE!!!)  I think the Tweet Leaves stamp is just THE CUTEST!!!  My favorite look for it is to do emboss resist (stamp with versamark, clear emboss then rub ink over the image)…and you are going to see several cool examples over the coming weeks with this!  Mary Jo gave us such a fabulous sketch that was perfect…just perfect for this!. The base of the card is More Mustard and I added a piece of Very Vanilla.  I used the Large Scallop Edgelit on a piece of Pacific Point and layered it behind the Pacific Point gingham dsp from the Orchard Harvest pack.  I stamped the greeting using Early Espresso on Lucky Limeade, cut into a banner, made a ‘bow’ (<a href=”https://stampercamper.com/cardpost/making_bows”>click here for my tutorial</a>) using the cotton 7/8″ ribbon and a Lucky Limeade brad, add the ‘bow’ to the banner then added this to the gingham strip.  I added two brads, then added all this to the card front.  I cut the leaf from Very Vanilla, stamped using Versamark, clear embossed and then used More Mustard, Lucky Limeade and Pacific Point ink. I added the leaf to the card front using dimensionals.

Fall Broom Centerpiece

Have you ever had an idea pop into your head and when you sit down to make it, it turns out exactly the way you had imagined it?  Yep…that seldom happens to me either but in this case…it turned out EXACTLY the way I had imagined it!  And how cool is that?  VERY COOL!

Now I will have to say…I haven’t not used by petal cone die much but I was thinking how that would make such a great broom.  And it did!  Between the Petal Cone Die, Coordinations Paper and Woodgrain Embossing Folder, the Autumn Accents Die and the Wonderful set and the Typeset Alphabet Dies….this really is soooo easy.
