Stampin’ Up!® Sweets & Treats Cloche Dome Card

Happy Thanksgiving!

Today I plan to spend some time reflecting on all I have to be grateful for. An “attitude of gratitude” really keeps me from feeling down during the holidays. I am very blessed to be able to spend Thanksgiving with family this year. We missed last year, so I feel especially grateful to be visiting this year.

I have a very fun 3D card for you today:

Doesn’t that apple pie look delicious? I actually prefer pumpkin pie, but the apple pie is a close second. Which pie do you like best? Please leave me a comment below.

Measurements

  • Cinnamon Cider Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches
  • Cinnamon Cider CS: 3 3/8 x 4 5/8 inches
  • Basic White CS: 3 3/4 x 3 1/2 inches and a scalloped rectangle from the Scalloped Contour Dies
  • Hand Penned 12 x 12 inch Designer Series Paper (DSP): 3 3/4 x 3 3/4

The Fun Fold Card Base

The card base is made by cutting 3/4 inch off of the top and bottom of the front panel. Emboss the back panel with the Timber 3D Embossing Folder. Set aside.

Trivia: Anyone know what a cloche (Klōsh) is? I didn’t. One definition of cloche from French, literally “bell”, is a transparent cover shaped like a bell.

Stamping & Coloring The Pie Pan

Use the Cloche Dies to cut the shape of the dome from the Scalloped Contour Die rectangle. Take care to position the die so that it is about 1/4 inch down from the top and that it is centered. Tip: I use sticky note tape to hold my dies in position while putting them through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. Save the cut out piece. Stamp the pie stand in Memento Black Ink. Use Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers in Smoky Slate to color the stand. Tip: I color in the “shadows” first with the Dark Smoky Slate Blend.

Then use the Light Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blend marker to blend the border of the dark into the light. Keep moving from the edges to the center until it is all colored in.

Stamping & Coloring the Pie

Now stamp the pie onto the cut out piece of the dome. Color the pie pan with Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Blends. Start with the Dark Cinnamon Cider Blend on the edges. Use the Ivory Stampin’ Blend to color the pie crust. Since there is only one shade of the Ivory, you can make a shadow on the edges by coloring the first layer as shown.

For the pie pan, blend with the Light Cinnamon Cider marker from both edges until you reach the middle of the pie pan. Note: I used a wee bit of the Light Cinnamon Cider Blend on the pie crust. To finish the crust I used the Ivory Blend to smooth out the darker edges until I covered the entire crust. I used the Light Real Red Stampin’ Blend for the holes in the pie crust since I am making an apple pie.

Stamping the Inside

Orient the 3 3/4 x 3 1/2 inch Basic White CS card piece with the 3 1/2 inch edge on either side. Using the Memento ink, stamp the “love ya” sentiment in the center. Add the heart in Blushing Bride ink.

Assembling the Card

Adhere the inside Basic White CS panel to the inside of the Cinnamon Cider CS card base so that it is hidden when you close the front panel. Adhere the Hand Penned DSP to the front panel. Set aside.

Do Not Adhere, but just place the complete Scalloped Contour rectangle with the pie dome on the 3 3/8 x 4 5/8 inch Cinnamon Cider CS. Adhere the pie dome without getting adhesive on the Scalloped Contour piece. Remove the Scalloped Contour rectangle. Draw some steam over the pie with the Black Stampin’ Write Marker. Yummy!

Assembling the Shaker Cloche Dome

Place about 1/2 tsp of the gold and orange Sequins for Everything on the center of the dome cut out. Remove the strip covering the adhesive on the bottom of the Cloche Shaker Dome.

Carefully line up the inside edge of the shaker dome with the dome on the Cinnamon Cider CS. Push firmly around the edge of the dome. Once adhered, remove the strip covering the adhesive on the top of the Cloche Shaker Dome.

Apply adhesive to the back of the Scalloped Contour rectangle. Place it carefully over the dome and push down to make it stick. Now the sequins can move around inside the dome! Fun!

Finishing the Card

Adhere the shaker dome card piece to the front panel of the card base. Take care not to apply adhesive to the very top and bottom. Include a sentiment if desired. I really like the sentiment “any way you slice it, I’m thankful for you”.

Voila! Such a yummy looking Sweets & Treats Cloche Shaker card! Also a great Thanksgiving card to share your gratitude with a loved one.

Stampin’ Up!® #SimpleStamping Fall Friendship Card

Howdy! Fall is slowly giving way to the Holiday Season. Next week I will begin to show you some Holiday cards. For today I have a lovely fall friendship card made using only stamps, ink and paper. Otherwise known as #SimpleStamping.

I am actually using the Christmas Season stamp set. But I chose fall colors so I could create a nice fall friendship card. The sentiment is part of the Christmas to Remember stamp set. Stay tuned because I will soon be using the same two stamp sets to create a Christmas card.

Measurements

  • Cajun Craze Card Stock (CS) card base: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches.
  • Very Vanilla CS: two 5 1/4 x 4 inches
  • Note: Ink colors: Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive.

Stamping

Start out by stamping the sentiment “Friends Like You Make This Season Special” in Cajun Craze ink onto one of the 5 1/4 x 4 inch Very Vanilla CS. Stamp some leaves in Old Olive ink. Then stamp another style of leaf in Pumpkin Pie ink. I started out with 3 of each color in a triangular orientation.

Add a third style of leaf in Cajun Craze ink. Fill in the spaces as desired using any of the 3 styles of leaves and their coordinating color. On the second 5 1/4 x 4 inch Very Vanilla CS stamp in the same manner just along the right-hand side. This will be the inside of the card so you need to leave space for writing.

Assembly

Adhere the first stamped Very Vanilla CS panel to the front of the Cajun Craze CS card base. Adhere the second panel to the inside of the card base.

Voila! You have a gorgeous #SimpleStamping fall friendship card!

Bling! Alert! I added a few of the Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels for some extra sparkle around the sentiment! This is a step up from #SimpleStamping.

Stampin’ Up!® Gorgeous Leaves Paper Lattice Thanksgiving Card

Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves Paper Lattice Thanksgiving Card. I have a very colorful Thanksgiving Card made using the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set and Intricate Leaves Dies.

I also found a fun trick with the Paper Lattice! This card was inspired by one made by Mary Knabe. Click on the photo below to get to her blog.

Here is Mary Knabe’s card that inspired me

I also got some inspiration from the current Theme Challenge from The Paper Players.

Measurements

Soft Suede Card Stock (CS) card base: 11 x 4 1/4 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches.

Very Vanilla CS: 5 1/4 x 4 inches and 5 1/4 x 3 1/2 inches.

Pumpkin Pie, Pear Pizzazz and Crushed Curry CS: 5 1/2 x 3 /8 inches
(one of each except the Pumpkin Pie CS cut two).

Paper Lattice: one.

Label Parts

Very Vanilla CS label from the Tasteful Labels Dies.

Pumpkin Pie, Pear Pizzazz and Crushed Curry CS leaves from the Intricate Leaves Dies.

Very Vanilla CS Stitched Rectangle from the Stitched Rectangle Dies (the sentiment is from the Banner Year stamp set and is in Early Espresso ink).

Early Espresso Faux Suede Trim: approx. 7 inches to make one bow.

Stamping

Start by stamping the 5 1/4 x 4 inch Very Vanilla CS which is the inside of the card. Stampin’ Up! inks for this card are: Pumpkin Pie, Pear Pizzazz and Crushed Curry. Decorate the inside by stamping a variety of leaf shapes from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in a variety of color.

Weaving

Now for the fun trick! Gently weave the color CS strips into the Paper Lattice. Flip the Paper Lattice over. I recommend using the Foam Adhesive Sheets cut into 1/4 inch strips to add dimension and hold the paper strips in place on the back of the Paper Lattice.

Assembling the card

Adhere the Paper Lattice to the 5 1/4 x 3 1/2 inch Very Vanilla CS. Follow by adhering the card piece to the front of the Soft Suede CS card Base.

Complete the inside of the card by adhering the stamped 5 1/4 x 4 inch Very Vanilla CS to the inside of the Soft Suede CS card base.

Assembling the Label

Arrange the Intricate Leaves as desired and adhere them to the Very Vanilla Tasteful Label. Use Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the “Happy Thanksgiving” sentiment over the leaves.

Adhere the label to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Adhere the Early Espresso Faux Suede bow just under the sentiment with a Mini Glue Dot.

Add some Champagne Rhinestone Jewels and Voila! you have a fun and colorful Thanksgiving card!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving today! This year is a little different for sure! I hope you are able to visit virtually with your friends and family. My family is getting together on Zoom. We are quite the crowd as I am the oldest of eight!

I made this card for the Cardz4guyz Challenge # 258- Thank You/Thanksgiving. I just love the Cajun Craze card stock from Stampin’ Up!® for my fall projects. The Forever Gold Laser-cut Specialty Paper just looks so handsome next to the Cajun Craze card stock.

The wreath is made using the Gold Hoop Embellishment with some of the Forever Gold Laser-cut leaves for the background. The Very Vanilla foiled leaves are cut from the Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper. The Gold Twine from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack compliments the copper Acorn Trinkets. The sentiment is from a retired Stampin’ Up! stamp set called Pleasant Pheasants and is stamped in Cajun Craze ink.

Please have a nice day of Thanks. Remember to be thankful for all the joy you bring to the world. You are a very special and unique person.

Have a most wonderful day and a crafty week! Stop by Cardz4guyz.blogspot.com and see everyone’s cards for Challenge #258-Thank You/Thanksgiving.

Stampin’ Up!®- Triple Stamping Fun with Floral Essence & Forever Fern

This fun fall card is made with the Triple Stamping Technique which I first learned from my stamping friend Karen Bouchikas about 8 years ago. This card is CASE’d from one of the first cards I ever made. It is super easy and looks super complicated! And- this card is so versatile!

Measurements: Cajun Craze Card Stock (CS): 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches; Very Vanilla CS: two 4 x 5 1/4 inches, 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 inches and 2 x 3 1/4 inches; Pumpkin Pie CS: 3 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches; and Mango Melody CS: 2 1/4 x 3 1/2 inches. You will also need 5 inches of the Vanilla Open Weave Ribbon from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack in the 2020-21 Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog.

Stampin’ UP!® ink colors: Daffodil Delight, Cajun Craze and Mango Melody

Take the 3 different sizes of Very Vanilla CS and layer them. You can hold them in place with a wee bit of repositional adhesive tape. We are using the Photopolymer stamps so you will need the Stampin’ Pierce mat or a catalog.

Stamp the large solid flower in the Floral Essence Stamp Set in Cajun Craze ink onto the righthand side in the middle. Next stamp the small solid flower in the upper left and lower left corners. Do not worry about the blank spots on the flowers near the edges of the layers. This will not be visible later.

Using the Mango Melody ink and the large bunch of leaves in the Forever Greenery Stamp Set, Stamp Off first, then stamp onto the card pieces. There will be a ribbon at the level of the large solid flower, so you may stamp the leaves so the ends of the stems will be covered by the ribbon. Stamp Off the smaller bunch of leaves using the Daffodil Delight ink before stamping on your card pieces. Fill in the open spaces with the smaller leaves.

Separate the three card pieces. Leave the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Very Vanilla CS piece. Stamp another large solid flower in the Cajun Craze ink in the middle.

Carefully cut the large solid flower out of the center. Just cut in the center so you can use this piece for the final card. Fussy cut the flower.

Stamp the centers of the flowers in Daffodil Delight ink.

Stamp Off the large bunch of leaves using the Mango Melody ink and stamp the righthand border of the second 4 x 5 1/4 inch Very Vanilla CS. Next Stamp Off the smaller bunch of leaves with the Daffodil Delight ink and stamp the borders of the large bunch of leaves. This is the inside of the card.

Adhere the inside card piece to the inside of the Cajun Craze CS card base. Use your Bone Folder to make a crisp fold at the 4 1/4 inch score line on the Cajun Craze CS card base.

Adhere the smaller card pieces to the corresponding colored card stock.

Adhere the Very Vanilla Open Weave Ribbon to the back of the right side of the smaller layer, the Mango Melody card piece, with a Mini Glue Dot.

Adhere the Mango Melody CS card piece with the ribbon on it, to the Pumpkin Pie CS layer, and finally to the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Very Vanilla CS card piece. Bring the ribbon over the the left hand side.

Wrap the ribbon around to the back of the left hand side and adhere it with a Mini Glue Dot.

Now adhere all the layers to the front of the Cajun Craze CS card base.

We are going to add a little dimension by using the Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the flower we cut out. Adhere this flower over the stamped flower.

Viola! Now you have made a super beautiful fall card! You can add any sentiment you want- Happy Thanksgiving, Thanks, Happy Birthday, I Love You, or any other sentiment you would like to send!

I am so grateful you have stopped by today. Please let me know what you think about this card. I appreciate your comments.

Stampin’ Up!® Floral Essence for Thanksgiving Spotlight Note Card

Hello fellow stampers and crafters! Today I have a darling little note card made with the versatile Floral Essence Stampin’ Up! stamp set using the Spotlight Technique. These note cards are 4 x 4 inches when complete and could be used at place settings for the Thanksgiving meal (assuming that is possible this year!). Note: This card is CASE’d from Shannon West’s presentation during our recent Onstage Convention.

I am using two exceptional stamp sets: Floral Essence and A Wish For Everything. Why are they exceptional? There are endless possibilities for the beginner stamper to use the flowers in the Floral Essence stamp set, depending on the color of ink and paper chosen. Purple, pink, and yellow for Spring; bolder brighter colors for Summer; and red/green or blue/white for Winter. The colors chosen for today’s card are Fall colors. The words in the “A Wish For Everything” cover, well, just about everything a beginner would need.

Measurements: Cinnamon Cider Card Stock (CS): 4 x 8 inches with a score line at 4 inches; Very Vanilla CS: 3 3/4 x 3 3/4 inches, 2 3/4 x 3 7/8 inches and 1 x 4 inches; In Good Taste Designer Series Paper (DSP): 3 7/8 x 3 7/8 inches.

You will also need: Cinnamon Cider, Bumblebee and Just Jade ink, Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels, the Classic Label Punch, the 2-inch Circle Punch and the Metallic Ribbon from the Basket Weave & Metallic Ribbon Combo pack. All products are found in the 2020-21 Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog except the Metallic Ribbon which is on page 45 of the 2020 Stampin’ UP!® Aug-Dec Mini Catalog.

Let’s get stamping!

Use the Cinnamon Cider ink to stamp the largest solid flower slightly right of center. Be mindful of the upper border of the flower as you want it to be 1/4 inch from the top. Use the Bumblebee ink to stamp the smaller solid flower on either side as shown. Tip: The Floral Essence stamps are Photopolymer, or see-through stamps. You get the best image if you stamp on something with a little “give” to it. I am using the Stampin’ Pierce mat, covered in white scrap paper. You may also try using your catalog.

Use the Bumblebee ink to stamp the center of the large solid flower. There is a different center stamp for the smaller solid flower. Stamping off Technique: stamp once onto scrap paper before stamping the center of the smaller solid flower onto your card. This will result in the center of the smaller solid flower being a little lighter than the flower itself.

Stamp the stems in Just Jade ink. I did turn the stamp upside down to stamp the stem for the Bumblebee flower to the left. I stamped twice to get the stem for the Bumblebee flower on the right. Add the leaves.

You may fill in the open space by stamping a few leaves using the single leaf stamp.

Use the Cinnamon Cider ink to stamp a large solid flower off to the right side of the 3 3/4 x 3 3/4 inch Very Vanilla CS. This will be the inside of your card, so leave a little space for writing. While you have the Cinnamon Cider handy, stamp the sentiment “Happy Thanksgiving” onto the 1 x 4 inch Very Vanilla CS strip. Note: The sentiment is a Red Rubber stamp. You do not need the extra padding. The image for the red rubber comes out with more clarity when stamped on a hard surface. I just forgot to take the Stampin’ Pierce Mat away.

With Bumblebee ink stamp two more small solid flowers on the inside of the card. Stamp the center of the Cinnamon Cider flower. When stamping the center for the Bumblebee flowers remember to stamp off first. Add the stems and leaves in Just Jade ink.

Spotlight Technique: Use the 2 inch circle punch to punch out the Cinnamon Cider flower. I turned my card 180 degrees and put the punch upside down on the craft table so that I could see what I was punching. I wanted the edge of the circle to be 1/4 inch down from the top of the card piece.

Here is the end result.

Use a Mini Glue Dot to adhere the Metallic Ribbon to the back of the card piece you just punched.

Use a Bone Folder to fold the 4 x 8 inch Cinnamon Cider CS card base at the 4 inch score line. The Bone Folder makes a nice crisp fold. Adhere the inside panel of your card.

Adhere the 3 7/8 x 3 7/8 inch In Good Taste DSP to the card front. Now adhere the punched out card piece.

Apply Stampin’ Dimensionals or strips of the Foam Adhesive Sheets and adhere the punched out circle to the card front to complete the Spotlight Technique. Tip: I have been using the Foam Adhesive Sheets in place of the Stampin’ Dimensionals. I have had a joint fusion in my right index finger. The thumb and index finger no longer come together so it makes peeling off the small hexagonal backing of the Stampin’ Dimensionals a challenge. I found that if I cut the Foam Adhesive Sheets into 1/4 inch strips, I can use those which make peeling the backing off a bit easier.

Use a Mini Glue Dot to adhere the bow, and a Stampin’ Dimensional to adhere the sentiment. This little note card looks great, but I think we need some Bling!

The Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels match perfectly! That is one remarkable point regarding Stampin’ Up! products-everything matches! Each color of card stock has coordinating ink. Some colors also have matching ribbon or embellishments! In this case the Cinnamon Cider coordinates with the Metallic Ribbon, the DSP, the Cinnamon Cider ink and the Champagne Rhinestones! Anyhow, I digress. The Take Your Pick tool helps to easily transfer the tiny rhinestones to your card.

Viola! You have a darling little note card to wish someone a Happy Thanksgiving!
