Hey Chuck Bundle for the Inspirations in Ink November 2023 Blog Hop

Welcome and thanks for visiting Theresa’s Treasures Paper Crafts! I am Theresa, a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator in Arizona, USA. Today is the monthly Inspirations in Ink Blog Hop! I am excited to be hopping with talented demonstrators from around the world. Be sure to check out everyone’s Hey Chuck Bundle projects. The Hey Chuck Bundle is in the Annual Catalog. When you are ready, you may order from my Online Store HERE.

I decided to make a Christmas card with the Hey Chuck chickens to spotlight the versatility of this set. I stamped the hat and scarf from the Beary Cute stamp set in the 2023 Mini Catalog. The lovely sentiment is also from the Beary Cute stamp set.

I used Wink of Stella to make the chicken very sparkly! Just right for the holidays!

Measurements

  • Poppy Parade cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5 1/2″
  • Basic White cardstock: 3 1/4″ x 4 3/4″ (for the diecut Deckled Rectangle inside), 3 1/4″ x 3 1/4″ (for the diecut Deckled Circle on front), 1/2″ x 3″ for the sentiment and enough to stamp the images.
  • Shaded Spruce cardstock: 2 1/4″ x 5 1/2″
  • Brights 6″x 6″ DSP in Poppy Parade, striped pattern: 2″ x 5 1/2″
  • Daffodil Delight cardstock: 2″ x 2 1/2″ (for the diecut sun)

  • Ink: Memento, Poppy Parade and Shaded Spruce
  • Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers: Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight and Shaded Spruce
  • Wink of Stella

Instructions

  1. Die cut the Deckled Circle (#6 from center), the Deckled Rectangle (#6 from center) and the sun.
  2. Use Memento Ink to stamp the two chickens and the tree (from Beary Cute). Diecut the chickens after you color them with the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers as desired.
  3. Use Shaded Spruce Ink to stamp the inside of the tree. Fussy cut the tree.
  4. Stamp two hats and one scarf in Shaded Spruce Ink. Fussy cut.
  5. Also use the Shaded Spruce Ink to stamp the “Merry Christmas” sentiment from Beary Cute onto the 1/2″ x 3″ Basic White cardstock strip. Cut the ends into a banner.
  6. Use Poppy Parade Ink to stamp “Rise and Shine” on the Deckled Rectangle (portrait orientation). I had to stamp a few stars around the inside sentiment because I was covering up a halo-oopsy!
  7. Adhere the Brights Designer Series Paper Poppy Parade, stripe pattern, onto the Shaded Spruce cardstock.
  8. Adhere this to the card front, slightly to the left.
  9. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the Deckled Circle to the card front.
  10. Adhere the sun with Multipurpose Liquid Glue or Stampin’ Seal.
  11. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the colored fat chicken to the card front. Add the scarf and hat.
  12. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals on each end of the sentiment, and glue in the center to adhere the sentiment banner.
  13. For the inside, adhere the Deckled Rectangle followed by the Christmas tree. Finish with the colored skinny chicken and the hat.

Around the World On Wednesday Blog Hop-November 2023- Fall Color Challenge with Aspen Trees

Hello and welcome! I am Theresa McEntee, creator of Theresa’s Treasures Paper Crafts. Today I have the pleasure of participating in the Blog Hop with Around the World on Wednesday (AWOW) organized by Angie McKenzie. On the second Wednesday of each month, the AWOW team put together a thematic hop to give you some inspiration for your own crafting. “Fall colors in Paris” is a Color Challenge for this month’s theme.

My Project for today

I was creating this card in my head over several days. I really love this particular design in the All About Autumn 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper pack. I wanted to used the Aspen Trees Dies too.

I do look at a lot of projects that other talented crafters make. Some of those projects inspire me and help me to create my own project. I hope my project will inspire you!

Project Details

This card was made using a variety of stamps and dies. The Autumn Leaves stamp and Dies come as a bundle (#162186). I have really liked the Aspen Dies that go with the Perched in a Tree stamp set. The Layering Leaves stamp set is great for sentiments.

Grassy Grove and Horse & Sleigh for the Ink and Inspiration Blog Hop-October 2023

Hello fellow stampers! You are visiting with Theresa McEntee-author of Theresa’s Treasures Paper Crafts. I am hopping with the Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop today. There are several of us- you will find the list to follow the hop at the end of my blog post.

The Ink & Inspiration Challenge is both an image and a color challenge. I was inspired by the trees and sun because I felt a feeling of serenity while I was looking at the image. The color combination is just gorgeous! Many of my faves!

How To

  1. Measurements are at the end of the blog.
  2. Start out with the One Horse Open Sleigh Designer Series Paper on the left. I thought it was a little barren. After looking through all my stamp sets, I found the perfect tree in the Grassy Grove stamp set.
  3. Tear a piece of copy paper to make an uneven edge and use as a mask so that the trees appear further away. Stamp some trees in Starry Sky Ink. The mask also provides an edge to make a snow drift for the trees to be behind. Use a Small Blending Brush with the Starry Sky Ink and a light layer to make a soft snowdrift in front of the trees.
  4. Diecut the sun with the smallest of the Deckled Circle Dies from a piece of full stick sticky paper. Tip: Diecut through 2 or more sticky sheets so that the top one will still have a full stick.
  5. Apply a light layer of Crushed Curry Ink with a Small Blending Brush where you want the sun to be. Stick the sun mask on. Blend on more Crushed Curry Ink, then blend on a little Pumpkin Pie just around the edge.
  6. To make the sun’s rays, use a scrap piece of Basic White cardstock and a Small Blending Brush. Apply a small amount of Crushed Curry Ink to the brush and very gently blend the color along the edge of the scrap of cardstock. Move the scrap a little and repeat until all the rays are done.
  7. Add more trees in Mossy Meadow Ink and Blackberry Bliss Ink.
  8. The sentiment is from the Horse & Sleigh stamp set. Stamp the sentiment for the front of the card in Starry Sky Ink onto a strip of Basic White cardstock measuring 5/8″ x 4 1/4″.
  9. The clouds come from the Trucking Along stamp set and are stamped in Gray Granite Ink.
  1. Use the torn piece of copy paper again to create the inside of the card. Stamp the trees that are in the background with Starry Sky Ink. Then as you move closer, stamp the trees in Mossy Meadow Ink then Blackberry Bliss Ink. Use a Small Blending Brush and a light layer of the Starry Sky Ink to make the snowdrifts.
  2. Stamp the sentiments for the inside of the card in Starry Sky Ink.
  3. Adhere all of the corresponding cardpieces. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the front panel.

Add Bling

Use the 2022-24 In Color Pearls for the Bling by applying 3 of the Starry Sky pearls.

Measurements

This is a 5″ x 7″ card.

  • Starry Sky cardstock card base: 7″ x 10″ scored at 5″.
  • Basic White cardstock: 4″ x 6″ and 5/8″ x 4 1/4″
  • One Horse Open Sleigh Designer Series Paper (DSP): 4″ x 6″
  • Blackberry Bliss cardstock: two at 4 1/4″ x 6 1/4″

Instructions

Blending the Flower Petals

  1. Diecut the Deckled Circle from the Basic White cardstock.
  2. Secure it to a piece of scrap paper with removable adhesive.
  3. Secure the scrap paper to the work space with tape.
  4. Lay the #1 Decorative Mask over your Deckled Circle cardpiece as desired. Take note of where the notch along the edge of the mask is. Use a pen to draw a line along that edge to help with placement of the next masks.
  5. Secure the Decorative Mask with some removable tape (sticky note tape).
  6. Use a Small Blending Brush and the Daffodil Delight Ink to apply ink along the tips of the flower petals. You can make this as light or as dark as you wish. See photo above on left.
  7. Now use another Small Blending Brush and the Cajun Craze Ink. Apply a layer of ink around the center circle.
  8. Lastly blend in Pumpkin Pie Ink with a third blending brush to complete the flower petals.
  9. Carefully remove the mask without disturbing the cardpiece.

Blending the Leaves

  1. Lay the #2 mask with the leaves by matching up the notch on the edge of the mask with the mark you made on the scrap paper.
  2. Secure the mask with removable tape.
  3. Use a clean Small Blending Brush to apply the Lemon Lime Twist Ink to the leaves first. Then apply the Parakeet Party Ink leaving a bit of the Lemon Lime Twist showing on the upper edge of each leaf.
  4. Finish the leaf by blending in some of Granny Apple Green Ink along the bottom edge of each leaf.
  5. Carefully remove the mask.

Blending the Center of the Flower

  1. The last 2 masks will complete the center of the flower.
  2. Lay mask # 3 over the card piece matching the notch. Secure it with the removable tape.
  3. Use a Small Blending Brush to apply the Pecan Pie Ink.
  4. Carefully remove mask #3.
  5. Lay mask #4 over the card piece, matching the notch and securing it to the scrap paper.
  6. Apply Early Espresso Ink.
  7. Remove the mask.
  8. Tip: Be sure to keep the masks away from your cardpieces as they will have residual ink on them. Rinse them in water. Use a mild soap if needed.

Blending the Flower for the Inside

  1. Repeat the above process to blend on a small flower in the lower right-hand corner of the Basic White cardstock for the inside of the card.
  2. Adhere this piece to the inside of the Cajun Craze cardstock card base.

Assemble the Card

  1. Use the Deckled Circles Die to diecut from the Pumpkin Pie cardstock.
  2. Adhere the Basic White cardstock card piece with the flowers on it to the Pumpkin Pie cardstock circle.
  3. Position the circles on the front of the Cajun Craze cardstock card base and trim any excess that is on the left border.
  4. Adhere this to the card base.
  5. Use Early Espresso Ink and the “Hello” sentiment from the Layering Leaves stamp set to stamp onto the 2″ x 3″ Basic White cardstock. Diecut with the label die from the Autumn Leaves Dies. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment to the card front.
  6. Tie a bow with the Burlap Ribbon and adhere to the card front with a few Mini Glue Dots.

Around the World On Wednesday Blog Hop-October 2023- Sketch Challenge with Autumn Leaves Dies

Hello and welcome to a Sketch Challenge with Autumn Leaves Dies! I am Theresa McEntee, creator of Theresa’s Treasures Paper Crafts. Today I have the pleasure of participating in the Blog Hop with Around the World on Wednesday (AWOW) organized by Angie McKenzie. 

On the second Wednesday of each month, the AWOW team put together a thematic hop to give you some inspiration for your own crafting. This Sketch Challenge and the question on whether to add a bow or not is this month’s theme.

I found this Sketch Challenge to be, well, challenging. I had fallen in love with the All About Autumn Designer Series Paper and Autumn Leaves Dies. So I decided to play around with the different designs and colors. I love the little leaves in the dies!

My Project for today

I chose this color combination to be in line with the colors in the All About Autumn Designer Series Paper-Moody Mauve and Pretty Peacock. I did make this card using Basic White cardstock, but in retrospect, I should have used Very Vanilla cardstock. If I make another card, I will use the Very Vanilla cardstock.

Project Details

Measurements:

  • Very Vanilla cardstock card base: 4 1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5 1/2″
  • Very Vanilla cardstock: 3″ x 5″, 3/8″ x 2″ (sentiment) and 4″ x 5 1/4 (inside)

  • Pretty Peacock cardstock: 1 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ and 1 1/2″ x 1 1/2″ (to diecut leaves)
  • Moody Mauve/Foil design of All About Autumn DSP: 1 1/8″ x 1 1/8″, 1 1/2″ x 1 1/2″ (to diecut leaves) and 3/8″ x 3 1/2″ (inside)
  • Pretty Peacock/Foil design: 1 1/8″ x 1 1/8″, 1″x 1 1/2″ (to diecut leaf) and 3/8″ x 5 1/4″ (inside)
  • Moody Mauve/Pretty Peacock/Very Vanilla/Foil design: 1 3/8″ x 1 3/8″ and 3/8″ x 4 1/2″ (inside)

Instructions

  1. Burnish the fold of the Very Vanilla cardstock card base with your Bone Folder.
  2. Use the Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the All About Autumn DSP strips to the 4″x 5 1/4″ Very Vanilla cardstock to make the inside panel. Adhere it to the inside of the Very Vanilla card base.
  3. Adhere the 4″ x 5 1/4″ Moody Mauve cardstock to the front of the Very Vanilla cardbase.
  4. Position the 3″ x 5″ Very Vanilla cardstock slightly to the right and adhere in place.
  5. Now adhere the Pretty Peacock cardstock to the card front on the left side.
  6. Set up all of the squares of the All About Autumn Designer Series on the card front, and then adhere them.
  7. Diecut the little leaves, place them where you like and adhere.
  8. Stamp the sentiment in Pretty Peacock Ink. Adhere to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  9. Add the Blooming Pearls as desired.

  • Copper Clay Ink
  • Gold & Vanilla 3/8″ Satin Edged Ribbon
  • Stampin’ Dimensionals & Mini Dimensionals
  • Mini Glue Dot
  • Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine

Instructions

  1. Fold the Copper Clay cardstock card base in half and set aside.
  2. Stamp the sentiment in Copper Clay Ink onto the 5/8″ x 2 3/4″ Very Vanilla cardstock. Cut the right-hand end into a banner.
  3. Die cut all of the leaves, scalloped rectangles and the veins for the leaves.
  4. Remove the protective backing on the Gold Glimmer Paper and adhere the veins to the corresponding leaves.
  5. Adhere the Copper Clay/Foil scalloped rectangle to the front of the Copper Clay cardstock card base.
  6. Stampin’ Dimensionals are used to adhere the Gold Foil scalloped rectangle to the card front.
  7. Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue or the Stampin’ Seal to adhere the Very Vanilla cardstock scalloped rectangle to the Gold Foil layer.
  8. Arrange the leaves on the Very Vanilla cardstock scalloped rectangle. I started with the Mossy Meadow/Foil leaves in the background. A Mini Stampin’ Dimensional was applied to the back of the tip of the right-hand Mossy Meadow/Foil leaf to raise it up a bit.
  9. Add the Copper Clay/Foil leaf using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Slide the White/Foil leaves behind the Copper Clay/Foil leaf. Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals are on the back of the tip of each leaf.
  10. Use a Stampin’ Dimensional on the back of the middle of the sentiment and glue on either end. Adhere to the card front. This gives the sentiment banner a wavy look.
  11. To adhere the small Gold Glimmer Paper maple leaf, apply a Stampin’ Dimensional to it without removing the protective backing. Adhere to the left of the sentiment.
  12. Make a small bow using the Gold & Vanilla 3/8″ Satin Edged Ribbon. Adhere to the card front using a Mini Glue Dot.
  1. Complete the inside by adhering the 1/2″ x 5 1/4″ strip of the Copper Clay/Foil DSP to the right-hand side of the 4″ x 5 1/4″ Very Vanilla cardstock. Adhere 2 oak leaves diecut from the Gold Glimmer Paper. Adhere the panel to the inside of the card base.

The Ink & Inspiration Challenge this month is both an sketch & a color challenge. I was inspired by the sketch primarily because I was already playing with the Translucent Florals Bundle and I could envision using the images in the sketch. This bundle can be found in the Stampin’ Up! 2023 Holiday Mini Catalog.

And this bundle has a coordinating Designer Series Paper (DSP) only available in the Online Exclusives. The Delightful Floral DSP has vibrant colors and gorgeous designs. I also couldn’t wait to try out the Online Exclusive Gold Adhesive-Backed Glimmer Paper!

These colors & designs just make me smile. I love flowers and plants. My house is filled with plants and my front yard is filled with flowers!

The Gold Adhesive-Backed Glimmer Paper was so easy to use. Stamping the flowers on vellum cardstock was a little tricky. Using the Heat Tool to help set the ink helped. Also using tweezers to move the flowers helped me avoid getting ink on my fingers, too much! Later I learned a Hot Tip from my Accountability Partner, Christy Gridley, that using Clear Emboss Powder over the ink makes it so you won’t get the ink all over the place.

For the inside, I stamped the images on Basic White cardstock. Much easier!

If you would like more information on how to make this card for yourself, let me know in the comments.

Around the World On Wednesday Blog Hop-September 2023- “Let’s Take a Walk” with Autumn Leaves

Hello and welcome! “Let’s Take A Walk” with Autumn Leaves! I am Theresa McEntee, creator of Theresa’s Treasures Paper Craft. Today I have the pleasure of participating in the Blog Hop with Around the World on Wednesday (AWOW) organized by Angie McKenzie. On the second Wednesday of each month, the AWOW team put together a thematic hop to give you some inspiration for your own crafting. “Lets Take a Walk” is this month’s theme.

My Project for today

When I was about 4 years old, I lived in the country in Pennsyvania USA. My Mom & I would go for a daily walk down the tree-lined dirt road. The image on the All About Autumn Designer Series Paper brings me back to this time period. We each had a pram. My little brother was in my Mom’s pram. I had a collection of Black Walnuts and Roly-Polies in mine! Lol!

Project Details

This card was made using Copper Clay, Daffodil Delight and Cajun Crazed colored cardstock. The sentiment is embossed in Copper Emboss Powder onto a Very Vanilla cardstock. The sentiment is diecut with a die from the He’s All That Dies. The card is embellihed around the sentiment with the Adhesive-Backed Sparkle Gems.

The inside panels are cut with the Deckled Rectangle Dies.

The AWOW Team

Each month this group of creative friends prepare a project for a theme. Below is an image of all of the crew and where they are from around the globe. Such a talented and wonderful group of people! You will want to visit everyone to be sure to see all the amazing projects!

I am so glad you have joined me today in this worldwide hug that stretches all the way from Australia to Alaska across twelve different time zones.  We all love sharing joy with you through projects from our individual parts of the world. I hope that you will be filled with lots of inspiration!
