Fall Class – Count My Blessings #3

Happy Monday,

I had a busy Saturday!!  The Houston Choral Society a group I have sung with since 1988 had our big Oktoberfest concert.  It was mainly done in German so I’ve been spending a lot of time working on it!! Unfortunately because of it falling on World Card Making Day I was unable to have a group of ladies to come over for a day of stamping!!

4 cards wm

I’m going to be describing the bottom left card.  I love making these “peek – a- boo” cards.  The base is Early Espresso cs cut 5 1/2′ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″  I used Crushed Curry, Whisper White cs, and Colored Me Autumn DSP paper.  I stamped the Acorn design with Memento Tuxcedo Ink  on Whisper White cs and then used blending pens with Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake, and Chocolate Chip inks.  The DSP paper is cut 5 1/4′ x 4″ and then find the middle and cut down 1 1/2″ down.  Then fold over each corner and using tape runner to hold it down.  Then adhere it onto the front of the card using tape runner. Next using the Stitched Circles cut the largest out of Crushed Curry and then the next size smaller that you stamped the design on.  Adhere the Whisper White to the Crushed Curry piece and using Stampin Dimensionals to the Crushed Curry to put it on the center of the DSP.  I used Thinking of You from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set using Chocolate Chip ink and punched out using the new Classic Label punch.  Adhere it using the new mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Today’s card uses the Painted Autumn DSP along with Cajun Craze cs for the base.  You will need an 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ piece of Cajun Craze scored at 4 1/4″.  You will also need a piece 2 3/4″ x  4″ 1/8″Cajun Craze cs.  The DSP paper will be 3 3/4″ x 5″.  The Very Vanilla piece is 3 7/8″ x 2″ 7/16″.  Using Memento Tuxcedo Black ink you will stamp the flower image.  Then with blender pens use Soft Sky for the flower, Pear Pizazz for the leaves, and Cajun Craze Stampin Write marker for the stamens of the flower.  Before adhering the DSP to the front of the card wrap a piece of Soft Sky Classic Weave ribbon around it.  Then use either Snail or Tombow to adhere it to the card front. Before adhering the Very Vanilla stamped piece use Cajun Craze ink to stamp Happy Thanksgiving that comes from Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set. Adhere the stamped piece to the Cajun Craze piece and then use Stampin Dimensionals to put that piece on the card over the ribbon.  Stamp the inside on the $” x 5 1/4″ Very Vanilla cs using the sentiment from the stamp set using Cajun Craze ink .

Fall Card Class

Hi all,

Today I’m going to start showing the cards that we made at my Fall card class last week.  This class is going to be repeated Oct. 14th at 2:00pm.  I chose to use the stamp set Count My Blessings!  I’m in love with this stamp set, as it is so versatile for Fall, Thanksgiving, and works great with the Autumn Harvest DSP paper.

This first card uses the Fresh Fig ink and the flower from Count My Blessings.  It is your standard A2 card using Fresh Fig cs.  I stamped on Whisper white cs measuring 4″ x 51/4″ with the flower stamp using Fresh Fig ink all over having some flowers going at an angle, upside down, and stamped off the side of the card.  I then had a piece of Fresh Fig ribbon and wrapped it around the piece I had just stamped before adhering it to the front of the Fresh Fig card.  I then used the Lots of Labels Framelits to cut out the Fresh Fig piece and the Whisper White piece.  I next stamped the flower using Memento Tuxcedo Black ink and with the blender pens used Fresh Fig ink, and Pear Pizazz ink.  Using Stampin Dimensionals I adhered the stamped piece to the Fresh Fig piece and Stampin Dimensionals to adhere to the card on top of the ribbon.
