Gold Leaf – Stampin’ Up! Card

Hello There,

Wonderful You – Stampin’ Up! Card

Hello There,
I pretty much took yesterday off to get much needed errands done.  You know, grocery shopping, banking, a stop at the feed store for chicken food, etc., etc.
Then I took a little me time and browsed one of my neighbor’s apple orchard and pumpkin field.  I really lust after a property like theirs but don’t envy them for the work they have to put into it to keep their place going.  They literally have fruits and veggies almost year round.    I’m quite happy to be putting my garden to rest for the season.
My little venture however sure put me in the mood to do this card.   I brought together the Stampin’ Up! sets Gently Falling and Gorgeous Grunge to give it a magical Autumn feeling.  What do you think about this card for a very special person?
You can find the supply list and how to the get the tutorial for this project free or by purchase below.

Not Just For Fall II – Stampin’ Up! Card Tutorial #606

Hey There,

I’m continuing on using the Stampin’ Up! set Gently Falling for today’s card tutorial.  I hope you are seeing just how valuable this set is all year long.  It’s so much fun using a stamp set in an unexpected way.

Leaves are on the trees, pretty much 9 out of 12 months of the year here in Ohio, but it seems that we really only appreciate their beauty in the Autumn months.  Why is that, especially since they give us such relief from the heat in the Summer by provided us much needed shade.  Okay, I confess, I’m a tree hugger, lol.

Check out the tutorial below.

!***************************************************************

I’ve added the featured card of the day to my sales page where you will also find some great deals on retired stamp sets and my brayer video.  CLICK HERE TO CHECK IT OUT

***************************************************************

Now on with today’s tutorial. . . . .  . .

Project Supplies:

Stamps: Stampin’ Up! Gently Falling (item # 123804) and DayDream Wheel (item #126939)

Card Stock: Stampin’ Up! Whisper White, Old Olive, Pistachio Pudding,  and Island Indigo

Ink: Stampin’ Up! Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Marina Mist, Island Indigo, Always Artichoke and Old Olive

Accessories: Stampin’ Up!  Sponges, Soft Suede Seam Binding, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Wood Embossing Folder, Regals Candy Dots, Versamark pad, Heat Gun, Clear Embossing Powder and Big Shot Machine

 

Load the Daydream wheel with Versamark and rolled across a 3″ x 6.25″ piece of Whisper White card stock using a ruler to keep things straight.

Heat emboss the image using clear embossing powder and a heat gun.

Sponged Marina Mist ink at on the left side of the card stock.

Sponged Crumb Cake ink on the right side of the card stock.

Added Soft Suede ink to the right center of the card stock and around the edges on the right side.

Sponged Island Indigo ink on the left center of the card stock and around the edges of the left side.

Stamped 3 leaves on Pistachio Pudding card stock using Always Artichoke ink.

Stamped the leaf filler stamp using Old Olive.

Cut the leaves out and sponged Soft Suede ink on the stem end of the leaves and Island Indigo on the top tips of the leaves.

Adhered the leaves to the main image panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals on the top of the leaves and glue on the bottom (stem end) of the leaves.  This adheres the leaves to the card stock and pops the top of them up but secures the stem.

Cut a 8.5″ x 3.75″ piece of Island Indigo card stock and embossed it using the Wood embossing folder and the Big Shot machine.  You need to run it through twice to get both ends of the card stock.  You can see the crease where the design meets but it looks like part of the design once the card is put together.

Added a 8″ x 9″ Old Olive card base and Soft Suede Seam binding.

Added a 3.25″ x 6.5″ Old Olive panel under the main image panel and the adhered them to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Also added Island Indigo Candy Dots.

Here is the completed card that measures 4″ x 9″.  This size card fits into a #10 size business envelope.  Anyone remember how all the funny cards years back use to be this size?  Maybe I’m showing my age here, lol.

Not Just for Fall Leaf – Stampin’ Up! Card Tutorial #605

Hey There,

I’ve been busy, busy with my vegetable garden of late.  When you are growing food you are a slave to the calendar starting the season out.  Got to prepare the soil and get those seeds and plants in the ground so they have time to grow before seasons end.  Oh yeah, and keep everything weed free.  That’s a full time job around here.   Sounds like a lot of work and it is, but boy I love my fresh veggies and the exercise is great for me to.

Anyhow, I’ve come in out of the garden to give you today’s tutorial.  Check it out, I’ve used the beautiful Stampin’ Up! set Gently Falling for this project.  Remember to give those Seasonal stamps a look now and then.  Don’t just put those Autumn sets in a box and not bring them out until October.  They can be used year about.  Take for instance my card today, I could use this card for a thank you, thinking of you or sympathy.   Keep your leaves green or white and stay away from the yellow and orange colors for your leaves and you have an everyday scene.  My complete tutorial for this card is below.  Enjoy!***************************************************************

I’ve added the featured card of the day to my sales page where you will also find some great deals on retired stamp sets and my brayer video.  CLICK HERE TO CHECK IT OUT

***************************************************************

Now on with today’s tutorial. . . . .  . .

Project Supplies:

Stamps: Stampin’ Up! Gently Falling (item # 123804)

Card Stock: Stampin’ Up! Whisper White, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla and DSP from the Patterns Stack Neutrals

Ink: Stampin’ Up! Always Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler and Soft Suede

Accessories: Stampin’ Up!  Sponge, White Gel Pen, Crumb Cake Seam Binding, Basic Black Marker, Stampin’ Dimensionals and Basic Pearl Jewels

Started with a 3″ square piece of Whisper White card stock.  Masked the bottom 1.25″ with a post it note and then lightly sponged Always Artichoke ink, using a back and forth motion, on the unmasked area.

Sponged just a little Cherry Cobbler ink at the post it note edge.

Sponged Soft Suede ink at the post it note edge and the top of the card stock.

Removed the mask and put it back on to cover the top 2.25″.  Sponged Always Artichoke ink lightly on the unmasked area.

Sponged Soft Suede at the post it note edge.

Removed the mask and lightly sponged Soft Suede ink in the uninked section of the card stock.

Stamped the leaf using Always Artichoke ink.

Colored the leaf in using a White Gel Pen.

Here are my layers:

Very Vanilla Card base 10″ x 6.5″ folded in half

Soft Suede 5″ x 6.5″

Very Vanilla 4.75″ x 6.25″

DSP 4.5″ x 6″

Very Vanilla 3 3/8″ square

Soft Suede 3.25 square

Assembled the DSP on the largest Very Vanilla panel.  Added Crumb Cake Seam binding, adhering the ends to the back of the Very Vanilla panel.  Adhered those panels to the large Soft Suede Panel and then to the card stock base.  Assembled the main image panel, Soft Suede panel and Very Vanilla panel.  Adhered them to the larger panels using Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop it up.

Cut another piece of Seam binding and slipped it under the already attached Seam Binding and then tied it.

Added large Basic Pearls to the main image panel.

The leaf was looking a bit flat so I added a bit of Basic Black marker to the bottom of the leaf to give it some dimension.

Here is the finished card.

Before I close I have an announcement to make, the Mystery Hostess for the drawing ending May 21, 2013 is . . . . . . . Diana Simpson!!  Diana receives the hostess benefits from the pool orders using the last hostess code.

That went so well, let’s keep doing it.  Here are the details:
