How'd they Make That - Love of Leaves Window Card Episode 3

 Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you how they made the super cute sample on page 49 of the August-December Stampin' Up! Mini Catalog,  the Love of Leaves Window Card.  This was a super cute sample that caught my eye as soon as I saw it in the catalog.  I love the designer series paper, the bundle, the whole shabang!  Here's a look at the card.  

Tips & Tricks:

This is a super easy way to create a window card and as I am sitting here typing this post you could easily make this into a shaker card as well with ease with the addition of some window sheet and sequins.   I am just going to throw that out there so don't be surprised if you see this card turned into one in the near future.  But to make the card as is in the catalog this is how I did it.  I took a piece of Thick Whisper White Cardstock and cut it at 4 1/4" x 11" and scored it at 5 1/2".  I then attached a piece of the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper cut at 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" and attached it to the complete front of the card.  

I then cut a piece of Cinnamon Cider Cardstock to 4" x 5 1/4" and took the Hello stamp from the Love of Leaves Stamp Set and stamped it repeatedly on the cardstock in Cinnamon Cider Ink.  I then cut out the leaf shaped opening with one of the leaf dies from the Stitched Leaves Dies.  Which by the way are a very unique set of dies, there is stitching around the cut edge of the outline.  To get the stitching on the inside of the leaves you have another die that layers on the inside to do the stitching there.  I placed this layer over the card base attaching it with Stampin' Dimensionals to give it left off the card base.  I know super easy right.  


I then added a little piece of the 3/8" Embroidered Ribbon to the front of the card with Stampin' Seal and took a piece of Pretty Peacock Cardstock (just a scrap piece) and stamped my sentiment in Versamark Ink and added White Stampin' Emboss Powder to it and heat set it with my Heat Tool.  This was added to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals over the ribbon.  To finish off the card I added a few of the White enamel dots from the All the Trimming Embellishments.

Happy Birthday - Gift Wrapped Bundle

 Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a super simple little card using the Gift Wrapped Bundle from the August - December Mini Catalog.  This is typically a Christmas Stamp Set but you can stretch it by using a greeting stamp set for so many other occasions.  This was one of the items on my Top 10 List that I shared last week.  If you missed that post you can check it out here.  Here is a look at the birthday card I made using this set.  

Tips & Tricks: 

As I mentioned above the Gift Wrapped bundle is not necessarily just for Christmas!  You can change the colors of the bows and add an additional greeting set to it and make projects for any and all occasions which is why I think it's a must have in your crafting stash.  There are so many different uses for bows and not just for Christmas presents.  You need bows all year round.  So I took this bundle and made a birthday card with it.  To start off I picked some very untraditional colors that you wouldn't think of for a Christmas set.  I used Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, and Whisper White on my card today.  You could also use this same set and color combination to make a card for a baby shower for a little girl.  

After picking the color combination I started the building process.  I stamped one of the bow images from the stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock.  I used my Flirty Flamingo Stampin' Blends to color it.  I then used the matching Gift Bow Builder Punch to punch it out.  


Next, I took a piece of Daffodil Delight Cardstock and cut it to 4 1/4 x 11" and folded it in half to make my card base.  To that I added a 1" x 5 1/2" strip of Flirty Flamingo Designer Series Paper from the Brights 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper and attached it to the card base.  I cut another piece of the same paper to 3" x 4" and layered that to a 3 1/4" x 4 1/4" piece of Whisper White which I popped up on the card base with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I wanted this to be representative of a birthday present.  


After that was all in place on the card base I took a 1/2" strip of Whisper White cardstock and one of the sentiments from the Itty Bitty Birthday Stamp Set and stamped it in Daffodil Delight Ink.  I used both the Lovely Label Pick a Punch and the Banner Pick a Punch to add a little bit of interest to the both ends and to make it look like a tag hanging from the bow.  Before attaching the long skinny tag I placed the bow onto the card front with a Stampin' Dimensional.  Then I attached the little tag tucking one end under the bow with Mini Glue Dots to finish off my card.
