Tags Tags Tags – Oops, No Gift!

Yes, I purchased the Tags, Tags, Tags stamp set (and dies) in order to make tags for some Halloween, Christmas and/or Valentine treats. But, as it turned out, my first project with this bundle was a Halloween card!

We made this card in class this month. Everyone seemed to like it.

 

 

Design Notes for Tags Card:

I know there must be a name for this fold, although it’s really just a piece of 4 1/4″ x 11″ card stock with 3 1/4″ cut off. Take the piece that’s cut off and add it to the front of the card.

This card has some nice sparkle and texture to it. I used the Birch stamp and some heat embossing with the new Shimmer Black Embossing Powder. I also added to the glitz with a bit of Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon. Here’s a close up to show you the shine factor!

Of course, I didn’t neglect the inside. The stamp for Halloween gives you three tags. So we used a second one inside. I added a Pearl to hide the hole (part of the tag).

Here’s a look at all the stamps in this set.

Finally, I added some of the Designer Paper to the envelope flap to give a little preview of the card. Some folks in my class added the third tag to the envelope.

Harvest Hello for The New Teacher

As soon as I saw the apple stamp in the new Harvest Hello stamp set, I knew I wanted to make some little gifts for teachers. I didn’t have any trouble convincing goddaughter Anne Marie to let me do this! As a former teacher, I knew her kid’s teachers would appreciate a little favor. Chocolate never hurts!

You are getting a little sneak peek here. This stamp set is in the new 2019 Holiday Catalog.

 

Design Notes for Harvest Hello Box:

I think this project looks a little more complicated than it really is. I’m planning a video for next week to show how I made the carton.

Once I made the box, I just added some Lovely Lipstick Card Stock and some Follow Your Art Designer Series Paper. I know that you probably can’t see that paper.  I made 4 boxes and put them in the mail early the other morning. Later, I realized I forgot to take pictures of the sides with the Designer Paper. However, here’s a picture of the candy from the inside – same paper!

Isn’t that paper just perfect for a little teacher gift?

The “To an A+ Teacher” piece is mounted on some Gold Foil Paper and attached to the milk carton with a bit of Lovely Lipstick Ribbon. I found some of the (now retired) Library Clips to close the cartons.

Do You Hear Wedding Bells?

The son of one of our neighbors is getting married soon. I wanted to make a special wedding card and knew that Woven Heirlooms stamp set would be the way to go. What do you think?

Design Notes for Woven Heirlooms Card:

As you can see, I used a bit of copper heat embossing on this card. The wedding invitation had copper so I thought it would work well. The sentiment is heat embossed as are both of the borders on either side of the sentiment layer. Do you recognize that paper? It’s from the Woven Threads Designer Series Paper. I did something I hardly ever think to do, that is to emboss on designer paper. I think it worked out well on this. Here’s a look at that Woven Threads Designer Series Paper.

The flower is from the lovely Good Morning Magnolia stamp set. I heat embossed it also and then colored in with Watercolor Pencils. After coloring, I used a Blender Pen to smooth out the coloring. The Magnolia Memory Dies made it easy to cut out the flower. The final touch was to add a little knot of the Very Vanilla Scalloped Lace Trim.

Pretty Pressed Petals Paper

Have you seen the new Pressed Petals Designer Paper? It’s beautiful! I used some of the paper to create a very quick birthday card.

Pressed Petals Designer Paper, Itty Bitty birthdays stamp set, heat embossing, Tieless Label PUnch, Stampin' Up!, diannescards.com

Don’t you love it?

 

Design Notes for Pressed Petals Card:

This card is possibly one of the easiest cards I have ever made. Really! I started out by using some of the Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper. Next, I heat embossed the sentiment and punched it out with the Timeless Label Punch. Finally, I popped  it up on some Dimensionals and done!

But really, you can’t miss with this beautiful paper. Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper is a lightweight paper with photographic images of real pressed petals on one side and vintage designs on the other. One design has distinct designs to cut out and use on card fronts. And, bonus, the package has 24 sheets!

Woven Heirlooms for Sympathy

The theme for Kylie Bertucci’s Blog Highlights is encouragement. When does someone need encouragement more that at the time of the passing of a loved one? I think the new Woven Heirlooms stamp set is absolutely perfect for this type of card.

I’ve entered this card in Kylie Bertucci’s Blog Highlights this month. Would you go over to her blog and vote for my card, #5? Just click on the heart in the upper right hand corner to vote. Thanks!

 

 

Design Notes for Woven Heirlooms Card:

You know how much I love heat embossing. I thought the white embossing was in keeping with the colors in the Woven Threads Designer Series Paper. And don’t you love that piece cut with the Stitched Labels Framelits?

I cut out two of them so that I could use one on the inside of the card.

I like using butterflies on any card but especially a sympathy card. They seem so hopeful. For this, I stamped the butterflies (from Butterfly Gala stamp set) on vellum. Next, I punched out both butterflies from card stock and then mounted the vellum ones on the cardstock.
