The Sprig Punch is so fun! I made a Wreath for my Mantel~

Sprig Punch Wreath

I love this Sprig Punch in the holiday catalog. It comes in a fun bundle, but I just wanted the punch. It is perfect for punching a couple sprigs for added elements on your card or a lot of punches, in tons of colors, for a wreath!!

I saw someone in Germany make these adorable wreaths using all sorts of color combinations and I thought, “oh, I can do that!”, but then when it came down to constructing it, it was tricky. I do like my end result although not as round as I had originally wanted.

My wreath is adhered to a piece of thick cardboard, covered with whisper white cardstock, measuring 7″ x 7″.

I started by simply punching out sprig pieces in Garden Green, Old Olive and Pear Pizzazz. I then purchased a buffalo check ribbon from an online distributor, to finish it up!

Sprig Punch Mantel Wreath

To build my wreath I started with all three of my sprig colors, a piece of thin ribbon and some tear-n-tape.

I cut my thin ribbon about 9″ long and placed tear-n-tape across one side of it and remove the backing. Then I literally just took one sprig at a time and lined them up one following the other.

The ribbon helps to give the wreath shape. It took me about ten minutes to finish it to my liking. I then tear n taped it to my backing.

I didn’t love it at first. It was trick to get “perfect” and I fussed with it. But when I was all said and done and I had it on the mantel, I liked it. A lot!

Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate the support and if you’d like to get your own Sprig punch follow the simple directions at the bottom of my post. I love to spoil my customers and would be honored if you shopped with me!

YOU MATTER: Buffalo Check~Falling For Leaves

YOU MATTER: Buffalo Check~Falling For Leaves

Falling for Leaves

 

I am a sucker for any stamp set/framelit bundle that coordinates leaves. The only thing that makes this card better would be a warm fire, hot cocoa and good company! Oh, and a pair of your best fuzzy house socks.

Add the YOU MATTER sentiment in the corner and boom! an amazing card is done!

The Details:

  • This card is a basic 5-1/2 x 4-1/4″ card base in Gray Granite.
  • I made a piece of Tranquil Tide and Tuxedo Black Buffalo Check background and cut it our with the Falling For Leaves Framelits. I also cut out a leaf in Blackberry Bliss.

  • I paired it with a Galvanized Metal Sprig punch.

  • I used some Basic Black satin ribbon and blemished with an adorable bow. It serves to hold my leaf bouquet together.
  • I used the Garden Trellis Textured Impressions Embossing folder to make an accent piece with Sierra Sand cardstock measuring 5-1/2″ x 2″

All In The Sentiment:

This card is really quite stunning but it packs the punch in the corner of the card, and you’ll miss it if you’re not looking for it. I used the Around The Corners Stamp Set to say, YOU MATTER! I stamped it right in the bottom left.

147464G

You. Matter.
Everybody deserves to know you are thinking of them and everybody needs to be reminded that YOU MATTER. 

There is just something so stunning and breathe taking about this card and secretly I think it’s the sentiment. It says it all, don’t you think?

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope it’s been a good one and I’ll be seeing you soon.

Country Home Fun Fold

Country Home Fun Fold

Country Home Fun Fold.meme

Fall is in full swing here in Indiana. The season change was somewhat bipolar this year. We were in the nineties a week ago and now in the mornings we are in the thirties. The swing has my sinuses screaming and my need to hibernate in full swing. Crafting takes up my free time and I love it, especially when it is so cold outside.

018

The Country Home stamp set is growing on me and this is the first of many cards I am making with it. My fun fold card was so fun to make and very easy, let me tell you how:

I started out with a regular folded Crumb Cake card base (5-1/2 x 4-1/4). I trimmed a 1/4″ off the right side. I gathered all my additional elements together and then I built my card.

  • 1 Soft Suede mat for the inside, measuring 5-1/4 x 4″.
  • 1 Whisper White piece to write my message on, measuring 5″ x 3-3/4″. I decorated that piece using stamps from the Falling for Leaves stamp set, in Blackberry Bliss and Gray Granite Classic Ink.
  • 1 Soft Suede mat for the front of the card measuring 5″ x 3-3/4″ and embossed using our Tin Tile Dynamic Embossing Folder (Gasp! It’s amazing!)
  • 1 Soft Suede ban to create the fun fold flap, measuring 1″ x 3-1/2″ and scored at 1″ to create the fun fold.
  • 1 Blackberry Bliss piece measuring 2-3/4″ x 4-1/8″ for the front flap.
  • 2 pieces of Whisper White measuring 4″ x 2-5/8″ for the front and the middle flaps.

016

That might seem like a lot of prep but I promise you it isn’t. Once you have all your pieces together you can start creating. I, of course, stamped my bucket and floral arrangement in Tuxedo Black and colored using my watercolor pencils. I stamped my other stamps just as I wanted them and I went to work assembling.

FIRST I adhered my 1″ ban to the base of my card, aligning it with the score marks and the soft suede mat. I use the Tear-n-Tape that Stampin’ Up! sells. I love it for anything that needs a strong bond. This is the only tricky part because you want to make sure it works properly. The rest of the card comes together piece by piece and very quickly. Snail adhesive will work fine on the rest of the card.

015

YOU ARE THE HAPPY TO MY DAY!

Is that not just the best sentiment? One of the reasons I said this stamp set it growing on me. I know several people I could use this for.

Overall, I made a very happy card, which also made my day happy. I hope you’ve enjoyed this card as much as I have and will try to recreate this fun fold yourself!

014

Have a happy day and I’ll see you soon!

XOXO,

Do Something Creative Everyday!

Do Something Creative Everyday!

Do Something Creative Everyday!

This card comes at a wonderful time for me. I have made some amazing changes in my personal life that strongly benefit my creative life. Sometimes you have to reevaluate your goals and change a little to make it all work out. I am not perfect but I believe that I am headed in the right path. This stamp set, Crafting Forever is wonderful and I had lots of fun playing with it.

How did I make it?

I started with a scrap piece of shimmer whisper white. I stamped my pot in archival black ink and let it dry really well. I used my aqua painter next and colored in my pot and brushes. I set it aside to dry before fussy cutting it all out.

I took another piece of shimmer whisper white, the piece for my mat, and made streaks of color running up and off the page. I used poppy parade, mango melody, gorgeous grape and granny apple.

I also made a Gray Granite spot for my pot to live. That way my pot wouldn’t look like it was floating.

I stamp my sentiment and added it all together. Adhering my pot with dimensionals so it popped off the page.

Side View of My Card

It’s an adorable card and can be used for really anything. I might just keep it and put it on display to remind myself of what’s important.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you are having a terrific Labor Day.
