Tweet Leaves

The SUO challenge this time is to make a unique fold card.  I have not had the chance yet to make a twisted easel card so decided that now would be a GREAT time to do that.

The base is made from the 2nd to biggest window framelit in Cajun Craze.  I then added a full Cajun Craze panel over the top.  I took a piece of Very Vanilla, stamped the Tweet Leaves image in Versamark and clear embossed.  I made an acrylic mask from the Autumn Accents die (check out my video on making acrylic masks here) laid it over the image and sponged More Mustard, Cajun Craze, and Island Indigo.  I added Island Indigo Large Scallop edgelits on each side and added to the card front using Dimensionals.  Next I added a Champagne Glimmer strip to the card front.  I stamped the greeting using Early Espresso on More Mustard, punched with large oval punch, layered onto a Cajun Craze Modern Label then an Island Indigo Scallop Oval.  This is added to the card front using dimensionals.  Inside I did a window panel in Very Vanilla, stamped the image in More Mustard (stamped off once) then did another greeting piece (same as the front) only with the sentiment in Petite Pairs.

The SUO Challenge this time is to make an Elegant Autumn card.  Oooooooo…I love autumn!  But…when I sat down to work on it, somehow traditional autumn colors didn’t seem to appear on my card anywhere…LOL!!!  I wonder how THAT happened!

I do love how this turned it out though and I do love the Island Indigo, Elegant Eggplant, Sahara Sand together.  The base of the card is Island Indigo.  I took a piece of Elegant Eggplant, inked the Argyle Embossing Folder with Elegant Eggplant ink and then ran my paper through that to give it more depth.  I layered this on Sahara Sand then added to the card base.  I added a piece of the newsprint then a piece of Silver Glimmer paper.  I embossed the image on Very Vanilla then sponged the three colors on it.  I curled the ends of the leaves then added to the card front.  I stamped the greeting using Elegant Eggplant on Sahara Sand, cut into a banner, added a ‘bow’ (click on the tutorial tab above to get to that tutorial) from Natural 7/8″ Ribbon and an incolor Printed Brad then added to the card front using glue dots and dimensionals.

Tweet Leaves

If are are a frequent visitor to my blog you probably noticed my love of this little ‘Tweet Leaves’ stamp done in emboss resist.  Yep..LOVE it!  Well, I still had one more leaf ready to go so thought I’d made a CAS card for the hope.  The base of the card is Very Vanilla 3 x 5 1/2 and I rounded the upper left corner and ran it through the Woodgrain Embossing Folder.  I took another piece of Very Vanilla, round the upper right corner.  I cut out the Maple Leaf from the Autumn Accents die, stamped the image using versamark (I used a stamp-a-ma-jig for placement) and clear embossed.  I then sponged More Mustard, Lucky Limeade and Cherry Cobble ink on it.  I cut out some leaves from the Champagne Glimmer paper and added them behind the leaf then added the leaf to the panel.  I made a ‘bow’ from the Natural Cotton 7/8″ Ribbon and a Lucky Limeade Printed Designer Brad and added to the panel.  Finally I stamped the greeting using Cherry Cobbler then added the panel to the card front using dimensionals.

Tweet LeavesOh…trust me…I’m not done with this fun little stamp yet!  LOL!!  I thought the colors for the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge was just PERFECT for another Tweet Leaves card so I just went for it.  You couldn’t possibly be sick of it…I still have another one for you!

We have such a FABULOUS color challenge this week… Tangerine Tango, Lucky Limeade and Rich Razzleberry and I just LOVE it on this card.  The base of the card is Very Vanilla and I used my Apothecary Framelites to create the card base.  Then I used one of the smaller framelits, cut another in Very Vanilla and ran that through the Woodgrain Embossing Folder.  This is added to the card base using dimensionals.  Once again cut out a Very Vanilla leaf from the Autumn Accents, stamped in versamark and clear embossed then sponged on the three colors of ink.  I stamped the greeting in Rich Razzlebery on Very Vanilla, cut into a banner and added a ribbon lace Tangerine Tango strip underneath it before adding to the card front.  I made a ‘bow’ (click here for my tutorial) using the natural 7/8” cotton ribbon (LOVE IT!) and a Lucky Limeade Incolor Printed brad.  I added the bow to the leaf then the leaf to the card front using dimensionals.

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.

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!

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.
