Christmas in July…Christmas Challenge Card – SCCC #32

Yep…it may be July…but it’s also time for Christmas!   As all crafters know,  July is the time to get a jump on the upcoming holidays.   Of course maybe we are all just trying to beat the heat by convincing ourselves that paper snow and thinking cool thoughts will cool us off just as well as the real thing.

Then again…my friend Darrah Hopper in Northern California assures me that where she lives in the mountains they have on occasion seen snow in July, just after the Fourth, so she doesn’t always have to rely on papercrafting head games to cool off.   She’s also the one who introduced me to the concept of a snow rake (and yes I thought she was kidding until she sent me a picture of her raking snow off her house’s roof).   One of these days I’ll have to create a punch art card with snow being raked in her honor.

In the mean time my friend Marsha’s induction into the Design Team for this Challenge group (congratulations Miss Marsha!) has inspired me to jump in and start participating and getting ahead of the holiday rush.

Mosaic Madness Ornament Tree - CASE by Jean Fitch for the SCCC #32 Christmas Challenge

Supplies:

Stamps: Mosaic Madness

Ink: Mossy Meadow, Blackberry Bliss

Paper: Naturals Ivory, Mossy Meadow, Very Vanilla, Baked Brown Sugar Cardstock. Champagne Glimmer Paper

Punches: Hexagon, Mosaic, Itty Bitty Accent pack (star)

Other: Big Shot, Mosaic Embossing Folder, Gold Baker’s Twine, Dimensionals, Glue Dots

 

Technically the challenge was for a tag but I’m afraid I forgot that in the excitement of getting started on my Christmas projects.   Luckily there is always the alternate of any kind of Christmas card just to get ourselves started!   And of course this use of the punch to create a tree can be downsized a bit to create the perfect tag for that special gift bag!

Given our very hot July weather (104º so far is the max) and the general madness it’s creating in a stamper no longer used to heat, the use of Mosaic Madness seemed a natural to start this Challenge.   Since this set was introduced a year ago I’ve been seeing a variety of Christmas uses including a punched tree so decided to give it a go with a CASE in our newest In Colors.    Another great benefit to this stamp set?   There is a coordinating punch and embossing folder that continues the very Moorish looking Mosaic design.   Gotta love that famous Stampin’ Up coordination!

Details and Tips:

I found the card quick and easy once the design and its components were decided on. The trickiest part was deciding which stamp images to use (there are so many cool ones in the set) and how many to use to create the pattern.   Loving the ornament looking patterns, I went with the small and large versions.  Then of course how many colors to mix…what pattern to lay them out in…and what pieces to pop up on dimensionals.   After a few false starts I ended up with what you see. Along the way I discovered a few cool tips.

Tip 1: Mossy Meadow stamped off once looks an awful lot like Old Olive…so if you want to save yourself some trouble and want all your stamp offs to have the same amount of ink…why not save yourself some trouble and grab the Old Olive if you want a tree all in shades of green.

Tip 2: Always Artichoke makes a nice third to the triad. Mossy Meadow, Old Olive and Always Artichoke give you some nice shade differences to work with all together.   Of course you’ll have to take my word for this since I didn’t end up combining all three in this particular card.

Tip 3: The Hexagon punch trimmed in half makes a great pot or tree base.   I’ll have to remember this when I try my hand at a topiary design closer to Christmas.

Now that I’ve got the pattern down an assembly of dozens of cards will be easy.
Stamp 6 images in Mossy Meadow, 5 in Blackberry Bliss then start punching.   Simplest way was to use 1-1/2” (narrower if you are good at placement) strips of Very Vanilla…stamp a strip…then punch.   Run a 4” x 5-1/5” sheet of Mossy Meadow through the Mosaic Embossing Folder and adhere to the Naturals Ivory card base ( 4-1/4” x 11”).   Arrange your punch pieces as you can see in the picture placing the Blackberry Bliss pieces up on dimensionals.   Work row by row building as you go.   Punch a few stars, add some Baker’s Twine and you’re done.   Of course you’ll want a Christmas greeting for the inside and Mosaic Madness has a few lovely border type stamps that will also add to the interior design not to mention your envelope.

One other note about this very cool stamp set.  You can create your own background papers for use in One Sheet Wonder designs by stamping combinations of images and colors.   Go random or get your stamp a ma jig out and do fussy aligned rows.  What ever strikes your fancy.

Hopefully this will inspire you to join in the Christmas Challenge.  You can see the weekly challenge here or follow along on the link I gave to Marsha’s blog.   A new challenge goes up every Sunday.   A card a week all year long and you’ll have 52 ready to go for Christmas.   A card a day and you’ll have 365!

Merry Christmas everyone!

A CASE of flags

CASE = Copy and Share Everything  (as Pinterest can attest…we stampers excel in this art form).

Still on a flag kick here.

Independence day was a blast.   A day (and night) spent with people friends… furry friends (love playing with 6 week old kittens and their mom…hm…do the family dogs count as siblings too?)… food (yummy homemade ice cream among other goodies)… fireworks from several cities watched from the deck… and after all that it was time to stamp!   An all night stamping gig with a sister demo and SU partner that was a fun time playing with new toys from the new catalog.   With all that excitement I had to end the weekend with a quiet CASE of a flag.    One that has special meaning.

 

Work of Art Flag - A siblings sacrifice - See blog post for details of the CASE and link to video tutorial

A very dear friend of mine has been sharing over the years her stories about her brother Larry.  A brother who served and was killed in Vietnam.    They had a special bond that could not be broken.    When I saw the original of this card (with a few variations) here  Marsha and her brother Larry came immediately to mind.    I remembered the gold star flags displayed by family members of a fallen service person and decided to add my own variation or rather nod to that tradition.   Using Kim’s basic design with a few alterations in color I add the Champagne (Gold) star to represent Larry and the traditional white star for Marsha.   The sentiment to me applies to them both.   One who showed courage and strength in his life and service and one who has shown courage and strength living with this great loss.     Some days we need a reminder that yes indeed we do have that courage and strength.   So that’s the point of the card.

Here are the basic details.   If you get a chance…enjoy the video and create your own CASE of a flag.

Supplies:

Stamps: Work of Art, Something to Say (both in the new annual catalog)

Ink: Night of Navy, Real Red classic inks

Paper: Basic Gray, Night of Navy, Real Red, Whisper White Cardstocks.  Champagne Glimmer Paper.

Other: Big Shot, Circle Card Thinlit die (star), Rhinestone Basic Jewels, 1/8″ Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon,

 

Hoping your Independence weekend was filled with fun,  memories, hope and blessings of strength and courage in the measure required.

Celebrating Independence Day!

Happy Independence Day!

 

Just a quick post to share a couple of fun cards that celebrate the day and add a bit of thanks to all who have gone before.   Those who created, sustained and have protected our freedoms and way of life.

Thank You!

 

What’s a celebration without a few candles right?  Or perhaps they are fireworks just before the big bang.  I’ll leave that to your imagination. :D

 

June 2014 Paper Pumpkin Candle Card - Jean Fitch and a Fourth of July Celebration!

Using the contents of the June 2014 Paper Pumpkin Kit (thanks Linda for sharing!) and a few other bits and pieces from the stash this fun and festive card came together quickly.

Supplies:

Stamps: Paper Pumpkin June 2014 stamps (stars and celebrate)

Ink: Silver Encore, Night of Navy

Paper: Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Night of Navy Cardstock and the papers from the June 2014 Paper Pumpkin Kit.

Other: Whisper White Baker’s Twine, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Bird Builder Punch (wing creates the candle flame), glue dots, sticky strip and other adhesive.

The candles were easy to create.  Cut the tube (used with the pinwheels in the kit) into thirds.  Place a small bit of the Baker’s Twine in the tube with a glue dot and mash the tube flat.  A bit of sticky strip holds them nicely in place.   One other note…if you want your silver Encore ink to dry in a hurry without smearing then use a heat tool to heat set it.

 

And of course…Independence Day also means flags to celebrate the symbol of our nation.

Work of Art Chevron Flag - Jean Fitch - Celebrating Independence Day.

Another one of the many flags being created with the new Work of Art Stamp set.  So many variations have been crossing my screen on Pinterest that I just had to try one or two.  Here’s today’s example.    A perfect thank you for a veteran or soldier or perhaps even your local Congressman.

Supplies:

Stamps: Work of Art

Ink: Real Red, Night of Navy

Paper: Real Red, Whisper White & Naturals White Cardstock

Other:  Big Shot, Card Thinlit Die (star die cuts), Rhinestone Basic Jewels, adhesives.

Heading out shortly for a  picnic, fireworks and a night of stamping with a friend.  Hope your Fourth is filled with fun, family, friends and thoughts of where we’ve been and where we’re going as a nation.

Hugs and Blessings to you all -

Old Glory and the WCC03 – Sketch

This weeks Watercooler Challenge with its sketch came just in time to help me celebrate the upcoming Fourth of July.

Watercooler Challenge :  WCC03

Here’s the sketch we are working with.  To see the teams excellent samples and other online contributions you can click here or on the sketch.

And here’s my interpretation:

A Folk Art impressionistic version of Old Glory I guess you could say.   With Fourth of July this Friday  it seemed appropriate.

 

WCC03 Challenge - Old Glory - June 2014 Paper Pumpkin Kit & Work of Art stamp set.  Designed by Jean Fitch

In the sketch the bow element was over a skosh but with such a large bow that was a tiny tad tricky so I went for the element rather than the exact placement.  Are you wondering where that Gold (Old Glory has to have gold right?) Twine came from…is it still Stampin’ Up product?   You betcha.   It’s the remaining thread from the Gold Sequin Trim once I slid a large number of sequins off to use individually.   This folk design, impressionistic flag just called out for a bit of gold to replicate the fringe you see on very fancy silk flags.

Then of course I couldn’t help retweaking  just a bit so I added a greeting.  Not sure if that’s allowed with the challenge or if that greeting constitutes another element.  Still new to the challenge scene.  And still learning the rules.

Here’s the tweaked version:

WCC03 Challenge - Old Glory Revised - June 2014 Paper Pumpkin Kit & Work of Art stamp set.  Designed by Jean Fitch

I’m curious what you all think…did the second violate the sketch or not?  Which do you prefer.

Here’s the supply list:

Stamps:  Work of Art

Paper: Real Red,  Whisper White Cardstock, Paper Pumpkin June 2014 kit papers.

Ink: Night of Navy

Other: Big Shot, Circle Card Thinlit die (star element), Basic Jewel Rhinestones, glue dots, dimensionals.  Stampin’ Trimmer, Paper Snips.  Postage Punch for the tweaked version.  Gold Twine from the Sequin Trim.

My thanks to the Watercooler Challenge team for yet another fun and interesting challenge.   And a reminder that there is another Wacky Watercooler blog hop coming soon.  Save the date: July 17-19

I don’t know about you but summer temps (104º and 80% humidity) are doing a number on my creativity so a blog hop with fun and inspiring projects may be just the thing.   Here’s hoping the fireworks on the 4th break the heat wave!

Hugs and Blessings going out to you all…until next time.

WCC02 – CASE THE NEW CATALOG – Watercooler Challenge

 

CASE: Copy and Share Everything.

I’m totally loving the new Watercooler Challenge Blog.   It’s a new kid on the block as card challenges go but promises to be fun and since many of my Watercooler friends are on the design team it seemed a friendly and fun place to get my feet wet in the Challenge arena.

Have you ever been stuck for a place to start a new card.  Wondering what design features, what stamps, colors and so on would work together….check out the world of Card Challenges and especially the Stampin’ Up catalog!    While Stampin’ Up no longer officially calls it’s catalog an Idea Book it still works that way for me.  Many talented concept artists create the samples shown in the Annual Catalog and I find that a truly inspirational place to start.

For my first jump into the  world of card challenges…here’s my CASE of the Circle Card Thinlit die sample on page 138.  What I call a Circle Flip Card.    To see the samples the Watercooler Team came up with as well as other entries to the challenge visit this post.

CASE the Catalog - CASE of Stampin' Up's 2014 Annual Catalog page 138 - Jean Fitch - Circle Card Thinlit die, Trust God, Petite Petal and the Arrow embossing folder and Moonlight DSP.   More pictures and details in post.

WCC02 CASE the Catalog Watercooler Challenge

Supplies:

Stamps:  Trust God, Petite Petals

Ink: Basic Gray, Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker

Paper: Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon, Whisper White, Vellum Cardstock.  Moonlight DSP stack

Punches:  1-3/4″ Circle, 2-1/2″ Circle,  Bitty Butterfly, Petite Petals

Other: Big Shot, Circle Card Thinlit Die,  Arrow embossing folder, Whisper White Baker’s Twine, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, dimensionals and glue dots

All products Stampin’ Up unless otherwise noted.

**************************

The very cool thing about this die are the options you have.   The basic card die creates a simple flip.  I decided to add an extended fold to it (hidden until you open the card) to allow a bit more scope for my written message once I add that and send it off to the friend who encouraged me to jump into the challenge (hi Miss Marsha!).   Then there are the many additional dies that come in the set ( 10 in all including the basic card die) that make layering fun.  For a quick tutorial on how to add that extended flap I have the video pinned here.

The first change to the CASE I made after the added flap was the color choice.  I decided to showcase this years new In Colors instead of last years.   So Hello Honey and Lost Lagoon teamed up for the first time in my stamp studio.    I had a wee bit of trouble getting the Arrow embossing folder just right (next time I’ll now to change the sandwich to a tighter fit) so I altered and added the strips of designer series paper (the new Moonlight DSP paper stack reflected the arrow theme perfectly!) as needed.    I also decided that the die cut chevrons would look better reflecting the arrow pattern of the paper so I fit them  into the tracks created by the embossing folder.    I don’t know about you but I’m loving this folder that carried over from the earlier Occasions catalog.   It fits the Prairie School or Arts & Crafts design styles from earlier decades to a T – Prairie School is one of my favorite styles that architects like Frank Lloyd Wright made popular.

Here are a few views of the card from different angles that also show a few of the extra die pieces from the card set that I used:

CASE the Catalog - CASE of Stampin' Up's 2014 Annual Catalog page 138 - Jean Fitch - Circle Card Thinlit die, Trust God, Petite Petal and the Arrow embossing folder and Moonlight DSP.   More pictures and details in post.

Three tips:

Tip 1: As you can see from this back view of the front flip circle I die cut another scallop circle using the die that comes with the card set.   You may not know this…but the scallop die in this card set is identical in shape and size to our 2-3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch.   Since I don’t yet have this punch I’ve been able to use the die in it’s place for many, many projects!  Score!  That’s $16.95 I was able to put towards a new stamp set!

Tip 2:   When you don’t have a circular stamp to use to step up a punched image…grab your Stampin’ Up Project Life journaling pen or a coordinating Stampin’ Write Marker.    I used the heart die in the set to create a window and then realized the threads peeking through weren’t exactly the look I was going for so I die cut another heart in Mossy Meadow and inserted into the Lost Lagoon scallop piece.    Looked a little plain and I wanted to echo the circle motif I had going on so I grabbed my Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker and added my sentiment.   It’s those personal details that really share the love don’t you think?

Tip 3: When you create with these flip cards keep in mind how you will deliver it to your intended recipient.   If you add rhinestones or other hard accessories to the back of the circle it will leave marks on the layer underneath when you fold the card and mail it.  If you are hand delivering it’s probably not as much of an issue but a trip through the post office has the potential to leave all kinds of indents from things like jewels and buttons and so on.  Something to think about as you design.  Flatter is better on the under layers.

Here’s the back view of my full card.  I left that extra back flap unembossed for easy writing before I pop it in the mail.   And speaking of mailing…this is one of those cards that will likely take a bit of extra postage what with the flap, layers  and rhinestones that I’ve added.  If however you keep the card simple and less dimensional the flip cards will mail just like any other standard one layer card.

Happy Birthday Marsha: Friends Forever Baby Cakes!

 

Dearest Marsha,

May you do all this on your special day……

 

Dance, Laugh, Create, Dream

My buddy Marsha is having a birthday today so I thought I’d send her cyber wishes in case her card is late getting through all that snow between us.   The picture above carries all the ways I hope she is celebrating today.

Happy Birthday Marsha: Friends Forever Baby Cakes!

Friends forever Baby Cakes - Marshas Birthday card

Marsha and I met through Stampin’ Up! as fellow demos, then we became blogging buddies through shared blog hops and the friendship grew from there.  Now a few years down the road a day rarely passes when we two, slightly older,  broads don’t chat.    Phone buddies really are wonderful aren’t they?  Someone to share the day with, the joys and the frustrations.   When something big happens I know I can call and when something is driving me wild I can call too.   Of course I may hear her famous…”suck it up buttercup” line but hey…that’s what friends are for right?  To celebrate with us and laugh with us and bring us up short when we need it.   If you want a bit of inspiration that covers many genres take a look at Marsha’s blog here.

Well today is Marsha’s special day and I want to celebrate it with a card I created with her in mind.    Of course, I promptly decided after creating it, that it was so cute I had to share it with stamping buddies at a Stamp a Stack last week too!  LOL

 

Here’s a view of the card with the tag pulled up:

Friends Forever Baby Cakes with tag

And of course the inside (before I added the mushy birthday greetings )

Friends Forever Baby Cakes - inside

Supplies:

Stamps: Perfect Pennants (Occasions Catalog), Banner Greetings (hostess set),  Banner Blast (Sale-a-Bration)

Ink: Real Red, Bermuda Bay, Baked Brown Sugar

Paper: Naturals Ivory, Real Red, Bermuda Bay, Baked Brown Sugar,  Crushed Curry, Very Vanilla

Punches: Scalloped Tag Topper, Elegant Butterfly, Small Butterfly, Small Heart, Itty Bitty Punch Pack, Scallop Border

Other: Big Shot, Polka Dots embossing folder, Honeycomb embossing folder, Stapler, Long Bladed Scissors, Daffodil Delight ¼” Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon

*****

When I post the rest of the Stamp a Stack projects I’ll share the template and directions I created for both the card and the pocket.

I was so jazzed when my brain looked at a pocket created with the old Scalloped Envelope die cut and immediately saw how to create something similar with the new Scalloped Tag Topper punch.   Gotta love creativity when it hits in a timely fashion right?   Makes one do a happy dance!   So of course all that creative happy dancing put me in mind of Marsha’s upcoming birthday and you saw the result!

Don’t forget…tonight at midnight (well really 11:50 pm)  the coach becomes a pumpkin, the horses return to mice and the last call for Sale-a-Bration orders will be heard.

Don’t miss out on the Banner Blast stamp set, the Banner punch, and so much more….email me your order quick so I can get it in under the deadline or place the order here and select me as your demonstrator.  Many thanks for a wonderful SAB celebration.

And one last wish for you Miss Marsha:

Here’s how we celebrated at our March  Stamp Camp.

Lucky Day Card - March 2014 Stamp Camp - watermarked

Once again the Envelope Punch Board was front and center creating the grass and my many punches did the rest.  I’ve been hooked on all the sun’s everyone is creating with the new Banner punch from Sale-a-Bration (luckily you still have a couple of weeks to take advantage of getting it for free!) so had to try my hand at one.

I counted them up and in addition to the Envelope Punch Board which probably qualifies as a punch in and of itself I used 12 other punches to create this card!  I think that’s a record for me.  It sure added to the weight of the boxes being transported to the church hall for this event.  Filled the center of the table too.

Here’s the supply list.

Supplies:

Stamps:Occasions Alphabet, Petite Petals, Teeny Tiny Wishes & Trust God (inside).  Assortment of retired St. Patrick’s Day stamps.

Ink: Gumball Green, Real Red (optional Black Journaling pen/marker for making a sun face.)

Paper: Gumball Green (1”x 4-1/4”), Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Naturals White, Basic Black Cardstock & Champagne Glimmer Paper.  Little hearts: Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz, Gumball Green, Island Indigo, Pumpkin Pie

Punches: 1-3/8” Circle, Petite Petals, 1-1/4” Scallop Circle, Decorative Label, Owl Builder, Word Window, Banner (from SAB), Bird Builder, Scallop Oval, Small Oval, Large Oval, Itty Bitty Punch Pack.

Other: Envelope Punch Board, Big Shot, Square Lattice embossing folder, Daffodil Delight ¼” stitched grosgrain ribbon, two way glue pen, tweezers, adhesives.

And here are the directions I shared with my stamp camp attendees:

Lucky Day Card Directions with picture

And a few tips on creating the various elements (no worries…these pictures are also in the directions):

Line up the 8 banner punched pieces on the back of the sun circle in two sets of overlapping squares.   Then run through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice folder and add another circle on top.

sun piecessun pieces

For the Pot O’ Gold I punched a Decorative Label piece then put the half piece on a post it note for better control and using the small oval punch I snipped just a hint out of the middle to get rid of the point and preserve the “legs” for the pot.  Added a word window punch and a half a scalloped circle of glimmer paper and there’s the pot.

Pot o' Gold

For the grass I created a base piece and a rick rack piece.  Embossed with the Square Lattice and overlaid the two pieces at the base of the card.

Create your two grass strips with the two 1”x 4-1/4” Gumball Green strips + the Envelope Punch Board. Strip 1: Place the strip first with the edge of the paper lined up with the tip of the score guide. Punch.

First punch lined up with the score guide

Slide strip over to the 1-1/2” mark, punch. Slide strip to the 2-1/2” mark, punch. Continue sliding down 1 more inch and punching till you reach the end of the strip.

Strip 2: Create the same as Strip 1 then flip over and center each “mountain” then punch, continue sliding and aligning and punching till you have a full rick rack looking strip.

Punching between the hills

Base & rick rack pieces to form grass

Place both completed strips in the Square Lattice embossing folder the longways and run through the Big Shot. Over lap both strips so you have a series of peaks and valleys between the two strips, adhere strips together and then adhere “grass” piece to card base. Trim edges if necessary.

overlapping base and rick rack

Cool trick isn’t it.  Creating rick rack with the Envelope Punch Board.   It does take a bit of flipping around to get the right orientation so the peaks show between the valleys but it’s a fun puzzle.    Of course if you have the Tasteful Trim die it might be a bit quicker but I love that with the Envelope Punch Board I’m not limited to the length of the rick rack pieces I create.   Oh…and the “mountain” base piece also works for a sponging mask to create hills.  Especially if you vary the measurements you use to punch the base.

Hope you’ve enjoyed this fun project.  I can’t tell you how many movies I watched while punching enough “owl” hearts for 12 people to create this card.  Fun!
