Punch Art Witch’s Hat Halloween Card

Teeny Tiny Wishes happy halloween witch hat card

Remember the punch art hat tutorial?  Here’s a new take with a witch’s hat for HalloweenClick here to view video tutorial.

First I created the iridescent textured black card stock by stamping the Circle Circus stamp with VersaMark ink repeatedly on black card stock and then heat embossing it with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder.

I used the embossed card stock to create this witch’s hat.  I punched the top of the hat with the Petite Pennants Builder Punch and the brim with the Extra-Large Oval Punch.  After  I punched the oval for the brim, I fed it back into the punch and trimmed off about 1/4″ from the bottom of the oval.  Don’t discard this trimming!  I used the trimmed edge to round the bottom of the pennant punch and finish the top of the hat.

After the hat was assembled, I finished the edges with a line of Dazzling Details glitter glue and added a thick band of glitter glue to the hat band.  The trim of glitter glue really added a lot to the finished hat.  The hat was adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals for more pop!

I stamped the Happy Halloween greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes and created the banner with the Bitty Banner Framelit.  Remember you can use post it notes to keep your framelit in place while you run it through the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine. By curling the tag with the bone folder first I was able to adhere the ends to create dimension.  (Don’t curl the tag if you are mailing.)

The rick rack was cut from the International Bazaar Designer Series Paper with the Tasteful Trim Bigz XL Die.  You can’t tell from the pictures, but I ran the Rich Razzleberry trim across the top of the VersaMark pad and embossed it with Iridescent Ice ep.

A Grateful Blooming with Kindness

blooming with kindness cc392 thank you card angle This Stampin’ Up! Blooming with Kindness Thank You card is the second installment of my tenure on the color challenge design team at Splitcoaststampers.  This beautiful bloom begs for attention and here it is embossed with Cajun Craze on Pumpkin Pie.  The third color of the color challenge this week is Midnight Muse and the added challenge was Thanks or Thanksgiving.  I chose Thanks.

blooming with kindness cc392 thank you card bloom

After embossing the flower, I painted it with bleach.  I used the Apothecary Accents Framelit to cut out the bloom, then trimmed out another from the Comfort Cafe Designer Series Paper with the same framelit.  To layer these pieces that are the same size the dsp was cut in half to layer behind the top and bottom of the main image.  I snipped out a little piece of dsp to fill in the gap.  With the patterned paper and the crochet trim, the piecing is disguised. Finally, the layered edges were rubbed against the Cajun Craze ink pad.

Similarly, the ‘thank you’ panel was embossed with Midnight Muse, first inked with VersaMark and again trimmed out with the corner of the Apothecary Accents Framelit and layered with the Cajun Craze pattern paper from the Comfort Cafe Designer Series Paper.

The Midnight Muse cardstock base was layered with a piece of matching paper from Comfort Cafe rubbed with Cajun Craze ink for direct-to-paper inking.  The cardstock base was also paper pierced along the edge of the dsp before the main images were adhered.

The two main pieces were tied together with a delicate Victoria Crochet Trim, and a small tag featuring a flower with a pearl center hanging from a Linen Thread tie.

Stampin’ Up! Layered Labels Congratulations CAS

Layered Labels red congratulations card angle What is CAS?  It’s Clean And Simple.  Todays card is a CAS Congratulations card – not too fussy, not too much color or distraction, just cool and calm Baja Breeze and Marina Mist with a pop of vibrant Real Red to get your attention.

The background pattern paper was the starting point for this card so I used the coordinating neutral,  Very Vanilla card stock, cut 11″ x 5-1/2″ as the base (folded to 5-1/2″ x 5-1/2″) to match the Comfort Cafe dsp (designer series paper).  The papers in this dsp pack all have a subtle fabric print, so in keeping with that vibe I used the Square Lattice Embossing Folder after I cropped the Scallop Circle with the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.

Layered Labels red congratulations card details

I stamped Congratulations in Marina Mist then die cut it out with the Apothecary Accents Framelits.  (View yesterdays video that demonstrates the Apothecary Accents Framelit.)  I used another Apothecary Accents Framelit to trim out the Real Red Accent.  I cut the die cut in half and layered it behind the top and bottom of the Congratulations label, then attached the label with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Finally, a Baja Breeze Seam Binding Ribbon bow was added topped using Glue Dots with a Real Red button and clear heart Bitty Button threaded with Linen Thread.

  Layered Labels red congratulations card matching envelope

I also made a matching envelope and with the Diagonal Scoring Plate this takes less than a minute to do.  (To view more information and a video on the diagonal scoring plate click here.) To make this square envelope, cut your paper to 9″ square, score each side diagonally at 4-1/4″, trim out the small triangles where your score lines meet  and fold up.

Layered Labels red congratulations card envelope open You’ll notice I added button closure to the back with Linen Thread.  This is a fun feature if you are hand delivering your card, but not so practical for mailing.  🙂 To create this closure, attach the end of the Linen Thread to a Dimensional then to a button.  Adhere the button, thread side down on the envelope.  Then just place the other button on the other side with a Dimensionals.  Now wrap the thread around the buttons to close.

 Enjoy!  Julie
