Fall for Petals & Paisleys

Amy's Inkin' Krew Blog Hop

 

Thanks for stopping by for our Fall/Halloween Blog Hop!  I decided to create a Fall card using the Paisleys and Posies stamp set and the Paisley Framelits Dies Bundle for my share today. We are finally getting some beautiful fall weather and I know the leaves will be changing soon.  This Petals & Paisleys Designer Series Paper reminds me of those Fall leaves!  

 

Fall

 

This card came together very quickly, too!  I started with  a Delightful Dijon card base, and layered a panel of Mint Macaron card stock on top with liquid glue.  Next, I cut a panel of the beautiful Petals & Paisleys Designer Series Paper and layered it onto a little larger panel of Very Vanilla.  Then it was time for some stamping and die cutting!

 

Fall

 

I inked up the sentiment from Paisleys & Posies in Versa Mark onto a panel of Very Vanilla, and sprinkled it with Gold Embossing Powder, then heat embossed it. It is die cut with a Layering Oval Die, then framed with a little larger Mint Macaron scalloped Oval Die.  I pulled out some Gold Foil card stock and the “leaf” shaped die from the Paisley Framelits Dies and die cut 2.  Burlap Ribbon was adhered to the DSP layers with Tear & Tape adhesive, then I popped that layer onto the card base.  Some Delightful Dijon and Mint Macaron 3/8″ Ribbon and Gold Sequin Trim are tied to the leaves with Gold Baker’s Twine and attached to the sentiment and then popped onto the front with dimensionals.

 

Fall

The inside sentiment is also from Paisleys & Posies and again, stamped in Versa Mark ink and Gold Embossing Powder.  A strip of Gold Foil lines the strip of Petals & Paisleys Specialty DSP  at the bottom of the Very Vanilla inside panel.  

Supplies will be listed at the bottom of my post.

Vintage Leaves Cardiology by Jari

 

 

I  borrowed the acorn from the September 2015 Paper Pumpkin stamp set to add to the Vintage Leaves for my share today.  

Vintage Leaves Cardiology by Jari

 

Even the inside got a sprinkling of those cute acorns!  Finally, the completed card with the envelope:

Vintage Leaves, Card-iology by Jari

 

 

Steps to create my card:

  • Stamp leaf images from Vintage Leaves onto Whisper White panel in Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry and Soft Suede
  • Stamp 2 acorns onto panel with leaves in Soft Suede; stamp another onto a scrap of Whisper White and fussy cut with Paper Snips
  • Stamp sentiment from September Paper Pumpkin with Rich Razzleberry onto Whisper White, use Banner Framelit to die cut, die cut 1 more banner from Old Olive and adhere banners together with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Add the cut out acorn with glue.
  • Divide stamped image in thirds, adhere to a piece of Rich Razzelberry that has been embossed with the Woodgrain TIEF with Multipurpose Liquid Glue
  •  Secure this new layer to a piece of Whisper White cardstock with glue or snail,  and pop it onto the Old Olive base with Dimensionals
  • Adhere the sentiment banner to the top of the stamped image with Dimensionals
  • Add a Whisper White panel to the inside of the card and stamp 3 acorns in Soft Suede on the right bottom corner
  • Choose a leaf you like for the outside of the Whisper White envelope and stamp with the color of your choice. I chose Old Olive for my leaf and Soft Suede for the acorn

Card cuts and supplies used will be at the end of the post.

Stampin’ Up! Vintage Leaves for the First Day of Autumn

Well, it is official, fall is finally here!  And so, to usher in the season, I have created a card from the Stampin’ Up! Vintage Leaves set. 

Vintage Leaves Card-iology by Jari

 

I started by stamping several of the leaves from the Vintage Leaves set in Delightful Dijon onto a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  Notice that some of the leaves in the background were stamped off first.  I wanted some of the leaves to be darker than others.  Next, I stamped the same leaf patterns onto Blackberry Bliss and Delightful Dijon in the same colors of ink and used the Leaflets Framelits Dies to cut them out.

Vintage Leaves Card-iology by Jari

 

 

For the sentiment, I chose a stamp from the For All Things set, but decided to use only a part of it.  I used some tape to cover the part I did not want, then inked it up, took off the piece of tape, then stamped onto a small piece of Very Vanilla.  I used the Banner Punch to cut it out-then punched a piece of Blackberry Bliss to fit behind it.  I positioned the punched leaves where I wanted them and attached them with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Vintage Leaves Card-iology by Jari

 

The stamped leaf image was attached to a piece of Delightful Dijon card stock with glue, then that layer attached to a little larger piece of Blackberry Bliss with more glue.  I cut a length of Hello Honey 5/8″ striped cotton ribbon and wrapped it around these 3 layers and tied a knot.  This layer was then popped up onto the Delightful Dijon card base with Dimensionals.  I popped up the small sentiment that had been layered onto the piece of Blackberry Bliss with Dimensionals and glued the Celebrate Expressions Natural Element with the new Fine Tip Glue Pen.

The inside was stamped with more of the leaf patterns from the front of the card in Delightful Dijon onto another piece of Very Vanilla card stock.

Stampin’ Up! Into the Woods DSP Thank You Notes

Today’s cards were inspired by the new Into the Woods Designer Series Paper from Stampin’ Up!  I thought it  would be fun to make a set of thank you cards that would be quick and easy,  like 15 minutes or less to complete!

Into the Woods Thank You Card-iology by Jari

Into the Woods Thank You Card-iology by Jari

 

I love all of this Designer Series Paper for making fall cards.  It was difficult to pick the side of the paper I would rather feature as they are all wonderful!  The card base for each is a Whisper White Notecard.  As you can see, I used several different stamp sets for the sentiments.

Vintage LeavesThankYou Card-iology by Jari

 

For this card, I used the Vintage Leaves set and stamped in Rich Razzleberry ink onto the same paper and cut it with the matching leaf from the Leaflets Framelets. The DSP is layered onto a piece of Rich Razzelberry cardstock, then attached to the card base with snail. The Thanks sentiment, from Another Thank You, is embossed with Gold Embossing Powder and layered onto a strip of Gold Foil paper, then finished off with a Gold Metal button and Gold Baker’s Twine. 

Into the WoodsThankYou Card-iology by Jari

I used the Thankful Forest Friends stamp set for this sentiment, but colored only the parts I wanted stamped with Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive Stampin’ Write Markers.  The Into the Woods DSP is layered onto a piece of Rich Razzelberry with snail.  I wrapped a strand of Old Olive Baker’s Twine around this layer 3 times and tied a bow, then attached the sentiment layer with Dimensionals.  The Into the Woods Elements leaf was sponged with some Old Olive ink before attaching with a glue dot.

Into the Woods ThankYou Card-iology by Jari

For this card, I used the Hello You Thinlets for the Thanks sentiment.  I ran a piece of Tangelo Twist through the Big Shot 3 different times to get 3 layers of the word.  The layers are glued together with Stampin’ Up’s new Fine-Tip Glue Pen.  Very easy process!  The 3 layers stand out a little better than just one layer on this flat card.  The Into the Woods DSP is attached to a piece of Tangelo Twist, then attached to a slightly larger piece of Old Olive before being snailed to the card base.

Into the Woods Thank You Card-iiology by Jari

And the final card is rather monochromatic, but I love the acorn paper.  The sentiment, from For All Things, is embossed in Gold embossing powder onto Whisper White, then cut out with an Ovals Collection Framelit. I framed that layer with another oval in Soft Suede.  The acorn paper was layered onto a piece of Early Expresso card stock, then a length of Gold Cording Trim was wrapped around 3 times and finished with a bow.  This layer was then attached to the card base with Multipurpose glue.  The sentiment layer was popped up with Dimensionals and finished with an acorn from the Into the Woods elements.

The products used for my projects will be listed at the end of this post.

Stampin’ Up! Thankful Forest Friends

My fall themed card today is from Stampin’ Up! Thankful Forest Friends, Crazy About You and For All Things stamp sets.

Thankful Forest Friends Card-iiology by Jari

 

I saw a similar card on Pinterest and loved the different cut out of the card front.  I cut the Tangelo Twist card base 4 1/4″ X 11″ and folded at 5 1/2″.  Then, I cut down 2″ on the fold and then all the way across to create the short panel. 

 

Thankful Forest Friends Card-iology by Jari

 

I cut a piece of Into the Woods DSP and adhered it to a piece of Soft Suede with Multipurpose Liquid Glue, then attached that new piece to the inside with glue.  Next, I cut a another piece of Into the Woods DSP, adhered it to a strip of Soft Suede and glued that onto the small front section of the card.  The bear, fox and rabbit were stamped onto whisper white in Early Espresso, Tangelo Twist, and Soft Suede and fussy cut.  I inked up the sentiment with Tangelo Twist and Mossy Meadow markers onto Whisper White cardstock and cut it out with one of the Chalk Talk Framelets.  It is attached to a strip of Soft Suede and Tangelo Twist also cut out with the Framelet.  The animals and sentiment are popped up with Dimensionals.

Thankful Forest Friends Card-iology by Jari

 

 

There is not a lot of room for writing on the inside of a card like this, so I colored a small sentiment from the Crazy About You stamp set with a Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Write Marker and colored some acorns from the For All Things stamp set with an Early Expresso Stampin’ Write Marker.

Get Ready for Fall Card Class with Stampin’ Up! Vintage Leaves

Ready or not,, fall is quickly approaching.  It is hard for me to say good-bye to summer, but fall in Georgia is usually a really nice time of year.  I will miss the long evenings with plenty of daylight, though!  So, it is time to prepare with some fall inspired cards.  It seems like Christmas and Halloween dominate our thoughts after Labor Day, but making someone a nice fall-ish card would be fitting.

Stampin’ Up! Vintage Leaves for Fall Thank You Card

Today’s card is another fall inspired card using the Vintage Leaves stamp set and Leaflets Framelets Dies from Stampin’ Up!

Vintage Leaves Card-iology by Jari

 

 

When I first spotted the Bohemian DSP paper from Stampin’ Up!, I wasn’t sure I would ever use it because I tend to lean toward more traditional patterns and colors.  But, when I saw some cards made by fellow Demonstrators, Mary Deatherage at Stamps-n-Lingers and Amy Koenders at Stamp With Amy K., I decided to give it a try.  Make sure you click the links above to see their beautiful creations!

First, I adhered a piece of the Bohemian DSP (the dotted piece) to a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock with Multi-purpose Liquid Glue, then cut another piece of the Bohemian DSP and ran it through the Big Shot with the largest Banners Framelets Die.   The banner is also attached with glue.  The leaves came next.

Vintage Leaves Card-iology by Jari

 

I took a close up so that the embossing would show up a little better.  Each leaf was stamped with Versa Mark ink and sprinkled with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and then heated with the Heat Tool until dry and embossed. I have never seen a blue leaf, but it actually looks pretty good on this card!  All of the leaves’ edges were softened up a little with my Bone Folder.  It gives the leaf a little shape-not just flat on the paper.

Vintage Leaves Card-iology by Jari

 

 

To keep the leaves from slipping all around, I added a dot or two of glue to the undersides, then made a bow with some Gold Metallic Baker’s Twine, tied it with a strand of Gold Metallic Thread and attached it to a Gold Basic Metal Button with a Glue Dot.  The button was then attached (glue dot) to another piece of Bohemian DSP (the Delightful Dijon patterned piece) that I first cut out with a square from the Squares Collection Framelets,.  The square was popped up with Dimensionals and then attached to the front of the card.  All of that layer was then attached to the Blackberry Bliss card base with Dimensionals.  The final touch was the sentiment, Thanks, from Expressions Natural Elements and also attached with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

This set, Vintage Leaves, is a Photopolymer set, and is so easy to work with, especially when you pair it with the Leaflets Framelets Dies.  Bundle them and save 15%.  That is a great deal!


  • Card base is 4 1/4″ X 5 1/2″
  • Bermuda Bay is 4 1/8″ X 5 3/8″
  • Bohemian DSP is 4′ X 5 1/4″
  • Square measures 3″

Stampin’ Up! Thankful Forest Friends, Vintage Leaves and PPA266

Hope you all are enjoying a beautiful Labor Day holiday today!  My card for today is a fall themed one for a change.  I used Thankful Forest Friends, from the new Handmade for the Holidays catalog and Vintage Leaves, which is from the 2015-2016 Annual Catalog. 

Thankful Forest Friends Card-iology by Jari

 

The color inspiration for my card is from Pals Paper Arts 266:

 

I started by adhering a piece of Into the Woods DSP to a piece of Cajun Craze cardstock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Then, I popped that layer up with Dimensionals onto the Old Olive card base.  I stamped the leaves from the Vintage Leaves set in Cajun Craze, Old Olive and Delightful Dijon on their respective papers and cut them out with the Leaflets Framelets Dies. I then used a bone folder to curl the edges a little and give them some depth.  I wrapped the top of the leaves with a piece of Delightful Dijon 1″ Dotted Lace Trim and used a glue dot to adhere them to the left side of the card(as you look at it!)

 

Thankful Forest Friends Card-iology by Jari

 

 

I inked the sentiment with Cajun Craze, Old Olive, and Delightful Dijon Stampin Write markers and stamped onto a piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock, then punched it out with a 21/2″ Circle punch.  The Delightful Dijon circle was cut out with one of the Circles Collection Framelets. Those two circles are glued together and attached to the front of the card with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the bear from Thankful Forest Friends in Soft Suede ink and fussy cut him with the amazing Paper Snips.  He has Dimensionals attached to the back to make him stand out from the rest.

I finished the inside of the card with a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock that was stamped with the same Vintage Leaves patterns as found on the front of the card. The products I used in making my card are listed at the bottom of this post.
