Sharing a Smile with Daisy Lane

Did it work? Did today’s card make you smile?  I sure hope so!  I had such a good time and smiled all through making this cheerful card.

Here’s the Details…

Materials & Measurements

  • Real Red card base: 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″
  • Crushed Curry card stock: 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8 and 5 1/4″ x 4 for the inside
  • Whisper White card stock: 5 1/4″ X 4 and 5″ x 3 3/4″ for the inside
  • Real Red, Crushed Curry, Old Olive 6 x 6 DSP: cut various sized strips.  I cut 1/2″ and 1/4″ strips
  • Real Red, Crushed Curry, Old Olive card stock for daisy and leaves

Assembly

  • Mat the card base with Crushed Curry and Whisper White panel.
  •  Arrange the vertical Gingham DSP strips and glue to the Whisper White panel.
  • Stamp the sentiment, from the Daisy Lane stamp set.
  • Line up the horizontal DSP strips under the stamped sentiment and glue.

  • Stamp 2 large daisies on Real Red card stock in Real Red ink and 2 on Crushed Curry card stock in Crushed Curry ink.  Punch with the Daisy Punch and the medium Daisy Punch.
  • Stamp 3 sets of leaves, from the Floral Essence stamp set onto Old Olive card stock in Old Olive ink and punch with the Leaf Punch.
  • Layer the daisies and adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Tuck the leaves underneath the flower and add mini Dimensionals to secure.
  • The flower center is a retired enamel dot that I colored with a brown Sharpie.

  • Add few 1/4″ gingham strips to the left side of the Whisper White panel.
  • Stamp a sentiment.  I used one from the Varied Vases stamp set.

  • The envelope is embellished with additional 1/4″ strips of gingham.

I think the colors and the daisies really give off a sweet country vibe on this card.  After I finished this card, I immediately want to make more in different color combinations.  I haven’t yet but I know I will.  If you CASE this card in another color combo, I would love to see it.

Gather Together with Gathered Leaves Dies

Monday already!  I hope you had a relaxing weekend and are ready for another week ahead.  I have to admit that it’s been a bit of a rough start to the school year and I’m hoping things will settle down soon at the elementary school where I work.  However, I got a lot of stamping done this weekend, so I’m recharged for the week! Does stamping relax or recharge you, too?

If you’ve been following me recently, you’ve seen me use the Gather Together Bundle quite a bit.  I just can’t seem to get enough of the embossed leaves in the Gathered Leaves dies.  They’re just so perfect for Fall creating and I know I’ll be using them more this season.  Today’s card is similar to the one I did last week. I guess you can say that I CASED myself.  You can see that card HERE.

Here’s the Details…

Materials & Measurements

  • Whisper White Thick card base:  cut at 4 1/4″ x 11, scored at 5 1/2″ for a top fold
  • Come to Gather DSP: cut at 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ for front panel, 3 3/4″ x 3/4″ for inside panel,
  • Basic Black card stock for Stitched frame, 5  1/4″ x 4″ for inside mat, 3 3/4″ x 1/4″ for inside
  • Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, Rich Razzleberry, Pear Pizzazz and Cherry Cobbler card stock for leaves
  • Whisper White card stock: cut at 5″ x 3 3/4″ for inside sentiment

Assembly

  • Glue DSP to card base.
  • Using two dies from the Stitched Rectangles dies, cut a frame with Basic Black card stock and glue to the center of the DSP panel. Depending on the size and width of your frame will determine which size dies you use.
  • Stamp the sentiment in upper right hand corner of the framed area.  I stamped in Versa Fine Black Onyx ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

  •  Cut a variety of leaves from the Gathered Leaves dies and create a spray by arranging them in the lower left hand corner of the frame.
  • Adhere leaves with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • The little branches were cut from Crumb Cake card stock using a die from the Flourish dies and glued underneath the leaves.
  • Color Rhinestone Basic Jewels with a Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blend and adhere to the end of the branches.*

*I created this card a while ago and it just sat on my desk as I knew it needed a little more pizzazz and couldn’t quite figure out what.  I tried a few different things but nothing really excited me until I added this little bit of bling!

  • Lastly, using several strands of Linen Thread, tie a bow and adhere with a mini glue dot to the center of the spray.

  • I kept the inside simple with a sentiment from the Gather Together stamp set and a bit of DSP and a thin strip of Basic Black card stock.

  • An embellished envelope using a bit more card stock and DSP ties it all together.

I’m having such fun with the Come to Gather Suite of products.  So much so that I’ll be thinking outside the box to come up with some projects for occasions other than Fall and Thanksgiving.  Stay tuned…


If you’d like even more ideas using these products…I will be sending out 3 free tutorials all this month featuring the Come to Gather suite from the Holiday Catalog for any order of $40 or more (after tax and shipping).  Each tutorial will include full color photos and clear step by step instructions for creating 3 very different cards using these products.  These tutorials will not appear on the blog and will only be available to those who place an order.  Along with the tutorials, I will be sending another completed card created with the Come to Gather Suite of products for you to keep or send.

Falling Leaves in Gingham

Along with the terrific new stamps and dies in the Holiday Catalog, there are still some pretty great products in the Annual Catalog for Fall crafting.  My card today features the small leaf die from the Seasonal Layers dies.  The Colorful Seasons stamp set coordinates with these.  You’ll find the stamps on page 56 and the dies on page 195 of the Annual Catalog.

Here’s the Details… 

Materials & Measurements

  • Whisper White Thick card base: 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2, score at 4 1/4″
  • Come to Gather DSP: cut at 5 1/2″ x 2 1/4″
  • Early Espresso card stock:  cut 1/8″ x 5 1/2″ strip, 7/8″ x 2 5/8″ strip for sentiment mat, 5 1/4″ x 4″ for inside mat
  • Whisper White card stock: 3/4″ x 2 5/8″ strip for sentiment, 3 3/4″ x 5″ for inside sentiment
  • Regals 6 x 6 DSP Gingham Pattern in Pumpkin Pie, Cherry Cobbler, Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry:  1 1/2″ x 1 1/2″ squares

Assembly 

  • Emboss card front using the Subtles Embossing folder. This folder has become such a staple for me.  It adds just enough detail to an otherwise plain card without overwhelming it.
  • Die cut four leaves from the woodgrain Come to Gather DSP panel.
  • Adhere Gingham DSP to the back of the woodgrain panel over each of the die cuts.
  • Glue panel to the left side of the embossed card front.
  • Add thin strip of Early Espresso card stock to create a border to the woodgrain.
  • Stamp sentiment, from the Painted Harvest stamp set, onto the Whisper White panel in Early Espresso ink. Painted Harvest is another tried and true set from the Annual Catalog that is just perfect for this time of year.
  • Using the straight stitched die from the Stitched Labels dies, edge this panel on top and bottom to create stitching.  This is step is totally optional.  I thought it added a little more interest to the sentiment panel.
  • Mat sentiment with Early Espresso card stock and adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

  • The inside sentiment is also from the Painted Harvest stamp set.
  • Die cut another small leaf in the lower left corner and back it with Gingham DSP
  • I think the envelope is my favorite part of this card.  Simply die cut a few leaves on the flap and add Gingham DSP.
  • Here’s how I finished off the inside…

 

  • After adding the DSP, I covered the inside of the flap with a piece of Whisper White card stock. It added hardly any more bulk.

I’m slowing getting all my Thanksgiving cards done and having such a good time doing them. Have you started creating for Fall yet or is Summer still hanging on in your area.  It’s pretty hot here in PA but I’m keeping cool making all things Fall.


Speaking of Fall…In celebration of the Holiday Catalog and the promise of Fall…I will be sending out 3 free tutorials all this month featuring the Come to Gather suite from the Holiday Catalog for any order of $40 or more (after tax and shipping).  Each tutorial will include full color photos and clear step by step instructions for creating 3 very different cards using these products.  These tutorials will not appear on the blog and will only be available to those who place an order.  Along with the tutorials, I will be sending another completed card created with the Come to Gather Suite of products for you to keep or send.

Simply Thankful for the Pals Blog Hop

 

Welcome to the Pals’ Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects for “It’s the Sentiment That Counts”  – showcasing new or favorite sentiments as the focal point of their project.  You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

For my card share today, I’m again playing with all the embossed leaves cut from the Gathered Leaves dies.  While I’m enjoying the whole Come to Gather suite of products, these dies are my favorite.

Here’s the Details…

Materials & Measurements

  • Merry Merlot card base: 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
  • Whisper White card stock: 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″
  • Whisper White card stock: 5 1/4″ x 4″ for inside
  • Come to Gather DSP: 4 1/8″ x 1/2″, cut 3
  • Come to Gather DSP: 5 3/4 x 1/2″ for envelope
  • Merry Merlot card stock: 4 1/8″ x 1/8″, cut 3
  • Merry Merlot card stock: 5 3/4 x 1/8″ for envelope

Assembly

  • Adhere larger piece of Whisper White card stock to the card base.
  • Glue DSP strip to the top and bottom of the Whisper White panel.
  • Glue thin Merry Merlot strips along edge of DSP to form a border.
  • Using the sentiment from the Country Home stamp set, stamp in black ink centered on the right hand side of the Whisper White panel.

  • Cut a variety of leaves from the Gathered Leaves dies.  I used Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry and Cherry Cobbler card stock.  Hint: Cut more than one set as I know you will find so many more uses for them!
  • Arrange die cut leaves to form a spray.  I used mini glue dots to adhere them.
  • Cut a few of the little leaf branches from the Bouquet Bunch die in Crumb Cake card stock.  You could use a number of different dies that have small leaves or this step could be entirely optional.
  • Attach a bow tied with Linen Thread.  Again I used mini glue dots to adhere.

  • Stamp the inside sentiment, also from the Country Home stamp set in black ink on Whisper White card stock.
  • Add another strip of DSP and Merry Merlot card stock to the bottom of the Whisper White panel.
  • Glue two die cut leaves.

  • Add the remaining DSP and Merry Merlot strips to the envelope front.
