Hello Harvest and Happiness Abounds Birthday Card

 

I wanted to make a Fall birthday card for a friend/customer of mine and I found a card similar to this one on TAMS by Michele Reynolds.  I used the 3D Leaf Fall Embossing Folder and Hello Harvest set instead for my leaves.  

Stamp Set:  Hello Harvest, Happiness Abounds

Cardstock:  Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Gingham Cottage DSP

Ink:  Pumpkin Pie

Other:  Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine, Paper Trimmer, 3D Leaf Fall Embossing Folder, Leaf Label and Amber Gem Combo Pack, 3/8” Gold & Vanilla Satin Edge Ribbon, Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Glue Dots, Stampin’ Dimensionals

 

1.      The base of the card is Crushed Curry cardstock cut at 5-1/2” x 8-1/2” and scored at 4-1/4” in the middle.

2.    The second layer is Pumpkin Pie cardstock cut at 4” x 5-1/4” and adhered to the front of the card with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

3.    The third layer is Gingham Cottage DSP cut at 3-7/8” x 5-1/8”. 

4.    Take the 3D Leaf Fall Embossing Folder and rub the Pumpkin Pie ink pad on the logo side.  Insert a leaf from the Leaf Labels and run it through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine.  Set aside for now.

5.    Ink up the sentiment “Happy Birthday” from Beauty Abounds and stamp in the lower right hand with the Pumpkin Pie ink.  Use a Stampin’ Pierce Mat for the Photopolymer stamps.

6.    Ink up the leaves with Pumpkin Pie ink from the Hello Harvest set and stamp three of them on the front of the card but place the embossed leaf in the corner so you know where to stamp your leaves.

7.    Cut 3-1/2” of the ribbon and tie in a bow.  Add a Glue Dot and add the ribbon bow to the stem.  Put Dimensionals on the back of the leaf and adhere it to the left upper corner. 

8.  Add 3 of the Amber Gems.  One of them needs to be placed over the hole in the leaf.

Kindest Gnomes - Scary Cute - Boo!

This card was inspired by a couple cards that Julie Gilson made but I changed the colors completely to make it a cute Halloween Gnome card.  I did learn how to make the candy corn hat from Julie, however.  

Stamp Sets:  Kindest Gnomes, Scary Cute

Cardstock:  Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Basic White, 6” x 6” Brights (Pumpkin Pie) DSP

Ink:  Pumpkin Pie

Other:  Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine, Paper Trimmer, Gnome Dies, Stripes and Splatters 3D Embossing Folders, Stylish Shapes, Iridescence Rhinestones Basic Jewels, Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Glue Dots, Multipurpose Liquid Glue

 

1.     The base of the card is Pumpkin Pie cardstock cut at 5-1/2” x 8-1/2” and scored at 4-1/4” in the middle.

2.    The second layer is Daffodil Delight cardstock cut at 3-3/4” x 5” and emboss with the Splatters 3D Folder.  Layer onto Daffodil Delight cardstock cut at 3-7/8” x 5-1/8”.  Adhere to the front with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

3.    Die-cut two hats from Bright’s (Pumpkin Pie) DSP in different patterns.  Die-cut three Basic White Beards.  Die-cut three feet dies, two from Daffodil Delight and one from Pumpkin Pie.  Die-cut three noses from the nose Die, with one from Pumpkin Pie and two from Daffodil Delight. Adhere the hats to the beards with Glue Dots.   Adhere the feet with Glue Dots.

4.    For the center gnome, make his hat look like candy corn by cutting a Basic White piece of cardstock at 2” x 2-1/2”.  Cut a Daffodil Delight strip of cardstock at ¾” and Pumpkin Pie strip of cardstock at ¾” and each about 2” long.  Adhere the strips to the Basic White cardstock with Multipurpose Glue first with a Daffodil strip and then the Pumpkin Pie strip.  Die-cut the gnome hat to create the candy corn hat for the center gnome. Adhere the gnome in the center with Dimensionals. 

5.    Adhere the other two gnomes with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

6.    Ink up the sentiment “Best Wishes” with Gray Granite ink.  Die-cut using the Stylish Shapes banner die but I die-cut more off the ends.  Attach a bow with Glue Dots.

7.    Add three Fine Sparkle Adhesive Backed Gems to each gnome hat.

Mountain Air and Peaceful Moments

This was a very quick, easy card to make using the Mountain Air stamp set.  There are only 7 stamps in this set, but when you look in the annual catalog on page 95, it looks like 14.  That is because it is a reversible set.  You use one side for the background silhouette and the other side for the detailed texture image.  If you purchase this set, you will definitely need the Clear Block I to mount the trees and mountains, but you will need a, b, and c for the other stamps in the set. It is also a Photopolymer set which is a clear set that makes the placement of the stamp image a lot easier.  There is also a coordinating die that goes with it called Majestic Mountain Dies on Page 172.  Although I didn't use it with this card, it comes with two extra beautiful tree dies and I made a card with those earlier on my blog.  You can see both the stamps and dies on my website: MY WEBSITE

Stamp Set:  Mountain Air (Reversible Stamps), Peaceful Moments

Cardstock:  Balmy Blue, Garden Green, Basic White

Ink:  Balmy Blue, Garden Green, Smoky Slate

Other:  Paper Trimmer, Simply Shammy, Clear Block I, Multipurpose Liquid Glue

 

1.     The base of the card is Balmy Blue cardstock cut at 5-1/2” x 8-1/2” and scored at 4-1/4” in the middle.

2.    The Garden Green cardstock is cut at 3-7/8” x 5-1/8” and adhered to the card front with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

3.    The Basic White cardstock is cut at 3-3/4” x 5”.

4.    On the Basic White cardstock ink up the background mountain stamp mounted on Block I with Balmy Blue ink second generation and stamp about 2 inches down from the top.  Clean the stamp with the Shammy. Now, reverse it and use the textured image of the mountain stamp and ink it up with Balmy Blue again but do the first generation and stamp slightly over and down from the first mountain image.

5.    Next take the tree's background stamp and mount it on Clear Block I.  Ink it up with Smoky Late and second generation.  Clean it off with the Shammy.  Put on the textured trees and ink up the trees with Garden Green ink and stamp a little offset from the Smoky Slate trees.

6.    Ink up the birds with Smoky Slate ink and stamp above the mountains.

7.    Ink up the sentiment “Happy Birthday” from the Peaceful Moments stamp set with Garden Green ink and stamp below the trees on the right.
