Beautiful Autumn Harvest Blessings Stampin’ Up!®

Even though it is still in the lower 90’s (degrees F) I am anxiously anticipating the cooler weather–soon I hope! I am in the mood for Autumn so I have been making cards with that theme.

The Autumn Punch Pack consists of two leaf punches which I used for the wreath on this lovely autumn card. There is also an acorn punch in the Punch Pack. The sentiment is from an awesome stamp set called Country Home. I have made many cards with this sentiment.

Measurements: Very Vanilla Card Stock (CS): 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inch card base with a score line at 4 1/4 inches and 3/4 x 3 inches; Bumble Bee CS: 4 x 5 1/4 inches; Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper: one panel; scraps that measure at least 1 1/2 x 3 inches in Mango Melody CS, Cajun Craze CS, Pumpkin Pie CS and the Brushed Metal 12 x 12 inch CS in the copper and the gold. You will also need one of the Gold Hoops Embellishments and two of the Acorn Trinkets (not shown).

Stamp the sentiment “Happy harvest Blessings” in Cajun Craze ink onto the 3/4 x 3 inch Very Vanilla CS.

Punch the leaves out with the Autumn Punch Pack leaf punches. I punched out 3 of each of the colors of scrap CS with a mixture of the two leaf types.

The easiest way to adhere the leaves to the card is with the Mini Glue Dots. I stick the end of the leaf onto the Mini Glue Dot right on the roll. When I am ready to use the leaf, I just carefully peel it off of the sheet.

Use the Bone Folder to make a crisp fold at the 4 1/4 inch score line on the Very Vanilla CS card base. Adhere the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Bumble Bee CS and then the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper panel. To adhere the gold panel, I applied the Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue around the perimeter very sparingly. Adhere the Gold Hoop Embellishment by applying the Liquid Glue to the back sparingly. Put in place on the card front and apply pressure by placing something like a large punch on top to weight it down for 5 minutes.

Start by applying two Gold Brushed Metallic CS oak leaves slightly to the left of center on the Gold Hoop.

Add one leaf at a time behind the oak leaves. Use a mixture of the colors and different leaf types. Go as far as is pleasing to you.

Cut a banner end on the sentiment card piece. Apply the sentiment to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Add a leaf if desired on the end of the sentiment.

This is a little difficult to see. I used the gold twine in the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack to make two bows. The twine was tied onto the two Acorn Trinkets before tying the bow.

To adhere the Acorn Trinkets and bows, use the Mini Glue Dots. Transfer two Mini Glue Dots with the Take Your Pick Tool and place them at the base of the gold oak leaves. Adhere the bow with the Acorn Trinkets, then apply another Mini Glue Dot and adhere the second gold twine bow. NOTE: This card will not be able to be mailed in a standard envelope because the trinkets are too large. You will need to mail it in a bubble envelope.

Now for the Bling! I added the Mango Melody sequins from the Artistry Blooms Sequins. They are very subtle but do add a little more sparkle to the card. Tip: Use the Take Your Pick tool to transfer the sequins-much easier. If you do not yet have the Take Your Pick tool, you can use a toothpick.

Viola! There you have a shiny golden leaf wreath for Autumn!

Thank you for viewing my blog today. Please “like” my blog and leave a comment to let me know what you think. And remember to mail this one in a bubble envelope because of the Acorn Trinkets.

Kylie Bertucci’s Top 10 International Blog Winners Hop September 2020- Country Home Thank You

I am so honored and excited to be participating in today’s Top 10 Winners Hop! I won a spot in the Top Ten from Kylie’s International Blog Highlight. I thank everyone who voted for my card in that hop. I was feeling very creative for this card and I hope you like it. I can’t wait to see everyone’s projects!

I used a number of stamp sets for this card. I really like to mix and match! Country Home is where you will find the milk can and flowers. The “Thank You” sentiment and the script pattern are from Very Versailles. The remainder of the stamps are from: Gathered Together, Comfort & Hope and Forever Fern. Stampin’ Up!® ink colors include: Misty Moonlight, Bumblebee, Cinnamon Cider, and Early Espresso.

I have been really enjoying the versatility you get with the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers. From the outside in on the milk can, I blended Dark Smoky Slate, Light Smokey Slate and Light Gray Granite. The flower arrangement has Cinnamon Cider, Just Jade and Calypso Coral.

I continued some of the design from the front to the inside of the card. The tiles from Country Home are stamped in Misty Moonlight. The grid pattern from Comfort & Hope is in Cinnamon Cider. The Forever Fern leaves are in Just Jade. The little splatter pattern stamped in Early Espresso (most are Stamped Off) is also from Forever Fern.

Techniques used to make this card include: Masking, Sponging, and Stamping Off.

Thank you so much for visiting today! You are at Theresa McEntee/Theresa’s Treasures. Have a very creative day!

Masculine Thank You with Beautiful World

I just wanted to pop on today and share this awesome masculine thank you card made with the Beautiful World stamp set.

I created this masculine thank you card with Cajun Craze Card Stock (CS) for the background on a Very Vanilla CS card base. The second layer is the Forever Gold Laser Cut paper.

I covered the Gold Hoop with leaves punched from the Brushed Metallic 12 x 12 inch CS with the Sprig Punch. The more granular gold leaf is made by applying Versamark to Crumb Cake CS and embossing with the Gold Emboss Powder. The globe and “Thank You” sentiment are also embossed with the Gold Emboss Powder. The gold twine comes from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack and the sequins from the Artistry Blooms Sequins.

Viola! You have an awesome masculine thank you Card!

Thanks for stopping by. Please “like” my post and my Theresa’s Treasures Blog. Leave me a comment, I would love to hear what you think!

Fun Fold Friday Flight of the Butterflies

I love butterflies so I try to use the Stampin’ Up! stamp sets with butterflies as frequently as I can. This fun fold card was inspired by one I made with my stamping friend Karen many years ago. This is special but also very quick to make. The flight of the butterflies is stamped with butterflies in the stamp set Beauty Abounds, which is in the 2020-21 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog.

Measurements: Bumble Bee Card Stock (CS): 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 inches with a score line at 3 inches on the long side, 3 x 8 inches with a score line at 4 inches on the long side, and a 1 1/4 x 4 inch strip; Flowers For Every Season 6 x 6 inch Designer Series Paper (DSP): front: 2 3/4 x 4 inches and background: 4 x 5 1/4 inches; Whisper White CS: two 2 3/4 x 3 3/4 inches and a scrap to stamp an extra butterfly on.

Use the Memento black ink to stamp the side view of the butterfly in each corner, then a little off center. Fill in the space with the forward facing butterfly.

Stamp a side facing butterfly onto a scrap of Whisper White CS and fussy cut. Lay it on one of the 2 3/4 x 3 3/4 inch Whisper White CS. Use the Memento ink to stamp the sentiment “thanks” in the center.

Color the butterflies. I used the Stampin’ Blend Alcohol Markers in Pumpkin Pie and Mango Melody.

Stamp the small flower from Arrange A Wreath onto the Bumble Bee CS and punch it out with the Small Bloom punch. Tip: Before you stamp, check the punch for the orientation of the image. Note that the flower has a star like orientation. Stamp so that the image easily fits the punch.

Use the Bone Folder on the 3 x 8 inch Bumble Bee CS to make a crisp fold at the 4 inch score line. Adhere the butterflies to the “wrong” side. This part of the card will be backward.

Adhere the Whisper White CS card piece with the sentiment to the left side of the inside.

Now working on the 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 inch Bumble Bee CS, use the Bone Folder to fold at the 3 inch score line. Adhere the 4 x 5 1/4 inch piece of Flowers For Every Season DSP to the inside of the card, and the 2 3/4 x 4 inch piece to the front of the card.

Adhere the butterfly card piece to the inside of the Bumble Bee CS card base, centering it.

Close the card and position the small bloom so that it will hold the card closed. Use a Stampin’ Dimensional to adhere the small bloom.

Viola! See how super quick that was! I love the challenge of the more difficult fun folds, but having one that is fun, easy and quick is great!

Friday Fun-fold: Playful Pampered Pets sending loving thoughts

This funtastic Pampered Pets stamp set is perfect for the dog or cat lover! This card is for my daughter who has both a dog and three cats.

This is a very common and easy fun-fold with a slight variation to make it more interesting. I turned the Real Red Card Stock (CS) that goes behind the stamped puppy card piece to make it diamond-shaped.

Measurements: Real Red CS card base is 4 1/4 x 11 inches with score lines at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2 inches; Real Red CS: 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 inches; Whisper White CS: 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 inches and 4 x 5 1/4 inches; Playful Pets Designer Series Paper (DSP): 2 1/2 x 4 inches.

With Memento Black ink stamp the puppy onto the 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 inch Whisper White CS. Tip: We will be coloring with the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers and the Memento ink will not bleed.

Stamp the sentiment “I hope your day is a real treat” in Memento ink onto the lower right hand corner of the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Whisper White CS. Add the little pet food bowl and then the hearts.

The Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Marker colors are: Light Basic Black and Light and Dark: Smoky Slate, Flirty Flamingo and Real Red. I also used the Real Red Stampin’ Write marker that is part of the Regals Assortment for the collar and dog’s mouth.

First color with the Stampin’ Blends Light Basic Black to accentuate the edges and shadows. Add the Dark Smoky Slate and blend it into the Light Basic Black.

Blend in the Light Smoky Slate. Tip: When blending the light color into the darker colors, use a small circular motion. I added a little Light Flirty Flamingo to the belly, ear and nose.

Color the mouth and collar with the Stampin’ Write Real Red Marker. The tip is finer so it is easier to put the ink just where you want it. Add a little Basic Black ink to the nose.

Color in the hearts with the Light Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blend and add a slight shadow on the right hand side of each heart with the Dark Flirty Flamingo. The pet food bowl is colored with the Light Real Red Stampin’ Blend on one half, and the Dark Real Red on the other half.

Take the Real Red CS card base and use your Bone Folder to make a Z-fold as shown.

Adhere the 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 inch Playful Pets DSP to the front panel of the Z-fold. Adhere the sentiment card piece to the inside.

Apply adhesive to half of the 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 inch Real Red “diamond-shape” and apply to the front panel over the Playful Pets DSP. Be mindful of the placement so that the sentiment shows completely when the card is closed.

Apply adhesive to the colored puppy card piece and adhere it to the Real Red diamond-shaped card piece. Be mindful of the lower right corner so that it does not cover the sentiment.

Viola! This card is a playful fun-fold that was pretty quick to make! I hope my daughter gets hers in the mail before this blog posts!

Stamping on Designer Series Paper with Forever Fern Wishing You Happiness

These beautiful colorful cards are so easy to make! The leaves come from the Forever Fern stamp set and the sentiments are from So Sentimental. Both of these sets are so versatile. The So Sentimental has several great sentiments in addition to those in the photo, including “hello baby”, “healing hugs”, “for you”, and “this calls for confetti”.

Here is the card I will demonstrate today. The colors are Magenta Madness, Rich Razzleberry, Blackberry Bliss and Balmy Blue.

Measurements: Rich Razzleberry Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches: Whisper White CS: 4 x 5 1/4 inches and 2 1/2 x 3 inches; Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper (DSP): 4 x 5 1/4 inches; and Balmy Blue CS: 2 5/8 x 3 1/8 inches.

Stamp the sentiment “Wishing you much happiness today and always” from the So Sentimental stamp set in Blackberry Bliss ink onto the 2 1/2 x 3 inch Whisper White CS. Then use the Blackberry Bliss ink and the largest bunch of leaves from the Forever Fern stamp set and stamp the leaves to frame the sentiment. Be sure to use a scrap paper underneath so you don’t stamp on your table! Our nickname for Blackberry Bliss is Blackberry Mess!

Next use the Balmy Blue ink to stamp a smaller bunch of flowers on the upper left corner, and the Magenta Madness ink to stamp the berry design on the lower right corner of the sentiment. This creates a little frame around the sentiment.

Use the Blackberry Bliss ink and the larger bunch of leaves to stamp onto the Artistry Blooms DSP. I tried to visualize where the sentiment will be and use that as a focal point for the end of the stems.

Next use the Magenta Madness ink to stamp the berry design, and the Balmy Blue ink to stamp the smaller bunch of leaves. I continued to use the focal point for the ends of the stems. On some I turned the stamp around and stamped with the stem off the edge of the paper to fill in the blank spots.

I wanted to make the inside a little more fancy. I started on the top of the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Whisper White CS with the Blackberry Bliss ink and the large bunch of leaves, and worked down the right side. I used the Balmy Blue ink with the small bunch of leaves and then the Magenta Madness with the berry design on the bottom.

Adhere the stamped Whisper White CS panel to the inside of the 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inch Rich Razzleberry CS card base. Use you Bone Folder to fold the card base at the 4 1/4 inch score line so you get a nice crisp fold.

Adhere the stamped sentiment card piece to the 2 5/8 x 3 1/8 inch Balmy Blue CS. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals or the new Foam Adhesive Sheets on the back. Tip: If you have arthritis in you fingers, I have found that cutting the Adhesive Sheets into 1/4 inch strips is much easier to use than the little hexagonal Stampin’ Dimensionals. I just have a hard time peeling of the backs of those hexagons!

Adhere the stamped DSP to the front of the Rich Razzleberry card base, then add the sentiment card piece to the middle of the front.

And now for some Bling! I am so in love with the Artistry Blooms Self Adhesive Sequins Pack because there are 4 colors with 2 different sizes! They go with just about everything! To easily transfer the sequin I use the Take Your Pick tool. I slide the pointed end under the adhesive on the back of the sequin and than just set it down where I want it, apply a little pressure, and it sticks in place.

Viola! You have stamped on Designer Series Paper to make a wonderful, colorful card to wish some happiness to someone!

I really appreciate that you stopped by today. I hope you enjoyed the card and will give it a try. Experiment with different papers and stamps to see what you like. There are so many possiblities!

Kylie’s Demonstrator Training Blog Hop-September 2020

Hi! Welcome to Theresa’s Treasures! I am Theresa McEntee and I am an Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator in Bisbee, Arizona USA. I am so excited to be taking part in the last Blog Hop for this Demonstrator Training year. I have really enjoyed sharing my projects on the Blog Hop, and seeing all the fabulous projects on blogs from around the world. I am calling this card “World of Thanks”. Thanks to all of you who have been such a wonderful source of support and inspiration this year! Thanks to Kylie and Bruno for all of your positivity, support, training–everything!

Here’s my card for today:

Measurements: Very Vanilla Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches scored at 4 1/4 inches, 1 x 3 inches for the sentiment and two 3 x 4 inches; Gold Brushed Metallic CS: 3 x 4 inches; Forever Gold Laser-cut Specialty Paper: Chevron background; Cajun Craze CS: 4 x 5 1/4 inches.

On one of the 3 x 4 inch Very Vanilla CS pieces, I dragged the Versamark ink pad across it and embossed with the Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I then punched it with the Sprig Punch. I also punched the 3 x 4 inch Gold Brushed Metallic CS with the Sprig Punch. I cut the sprigs apart and used them as the base of my world. The world and the sentiment are from the Beautiful World stamp set. The world is stamped on the second 3 x 4 inch Very Vanilla CS. The world and sentiment are stamped in Versamark and embossed with the Gold Emboss Powder. The world was punched out with the 2-inch Circle Punch. I used the Gold Hoops Embellishments and Acorn Trinkets. The gold twine is from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack. The sequins are from the Artistry Blooms Sequin pack.

Viola! A nice “World of Thanks” card for all of you! Again, thank you for everything this year! Thank you Kylie and Bruno!

Fun Fold Friday Box Pop Up Card with Country Home and Jar of Flowers and Coloring Tips

First I just want to take a moment to remember and reflect on all of those affected by the horrific events on September 11, 2001.

For today I have a special fun fold for you. This is a little challenging, but I will give step by step instructions. Warning, there are a lot of photos to help show how I created this card.

The Country Home and Jar of Flowers stamp sets pair together nicely. I love the sunflowers because they remind me of the approaching Autumn with their golden yellow and brown colors. The pop-up box of flowers on the inside of the card is a nice surprise!

Measurements: Cajun Craze Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches; Crumb Cake CS: 5 1/4 x 8 inches with a score line at 4 inches, 3 3/4 x 5 inches and 1 x 3 inches; Very Vanilla CS: 3 1/2 x 4 3/4 inches, 3 x 5 inches, 3/4 x 3 3/4 inches and two 1 x 1 1/2 inches.

I drew dark solid lines to indicate cutting and dashed lines for scoring. You do not need to draw the lines. First you are going to cut the 5 1/4 x 8 inch Crumb Cake CS that has the score line at 4 inches. Using your Paper Trimmer place the 5 1/2 inch side on top with the left edge at 1 inch. Cut from 2 1/2 to 5 1/2 inches. Move the left edge to 2 1/2 and make the same cut.

Turn the Crumb Cake CS until the 8 inch side is on top. With the left edge at 2 1/2 inches make a score line between the cuts from 1 inch to 2 1/2 inches. Move the left edge to 5 1/2 inches and make another score line like the first. Now you can fold the card piece so that a little box pops out.

Flip the Crumb Cake card piece and place it inside the Cajun Craze CS card base to get an idea of what it will look like.

Cut the 1 x 3 inch Crumb Cake CS in half at 1 1/2 inches. Make a scoreline at 1 inch lengthwise. Trim the corners as shown. These will be the flaps for the box top. Adhere the box flaps.

Close the card piece after you adhere the box tops to ensure it will lie flat. If not, trim the corners of the flaps a little more.

Now for the stamping! Use the Memento black ink to stamp the images that will be colored with the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers. Tip: The Memento does not bleed as much as the regular ink when colored with the alcohol marker. Stamp the milk can from the Country Home stamp set onto the bottom of the 3 1/2 x 4 3/4 inch Very Vanilla CS. Stamp the bunch of sunflowers from the Jar of Flowers stamp set above the milk can, and onto the 3 x 5 inch Very Vanilla CS. Tip: To get the best stamped image with the Photopolymer stamp, you can use the Stampin’ Pierce mat or a catalog underneath. I simply forgot to use one this time.

Use Early Espresso ink to stamp the sentiment “Happy Harvest Blessings” onto the 3/4 x 4 inch strip of Very Vanilla CS. Next stamp the sentiment “You are the happy to my day” onto the Crumb Cake insert to the right hand side of the box.

I included a lot of photos to show you how I go about coloring with the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers. This is just one way to go. Feel free to color how you would like. For the sunflowers I used the light and dark version of the following colors: Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody, Just Jade, Shaded Spruce, Calypso Coral and Cinnamon Cider.

For the small flower, I first colored in with the Light Calypso Coral. Then I colored the Dark Calypso Coral around the edges followed by coloring with the Light Calypso Coral to blend the dark into the light.

For the sunflowers I found it easier to color in the Dark Daffodil Delight first, then add the Light Daffodil Delight.

I added some Light Mango Melody to accentuate the shadows on the petals behind the other petals. I realized I had forgotten the little buds on the right, so I colored them in with the Light and Dark Calypso Coral.

I colored the center of the sunflower with the Light Cinnamon Cider leaving a ring that was not colored in. Next I colored in the very center and added some shading with the Dark Cinnamon Cider. Lastly, I colored the ring with the Light Daffodil Delight.
