CTC #1 Pocket Card

Good morning, Stamping Friends,

Here is a walk down memory lane for a swiper St. Patrick’s Day card.  When you pull the card side to side the pot of gold pops up:

.  You could use me!

Now there’s a thought!  And we could add a pepper shaker to be your friend!

Ann Hausmann cased Kirsteen Gill and made the cutest St. Patrick’s Day favor:

Thank you, Ann!

Lynn Dunn of Stamptastic Designs is our creator!  Thank you, Lynn.

I made a Valentines Day card since I had all those supplies sitting at my work table, and then I used the same design for February thank you cards.  Another sincere thank you to all those who ordered in February!  Oops…. That’s why I have you!

I used the ‘Always In My Heart’ stamp set for Be My Valentine on a banner die cut from the Floral Heart Dies.  The paper is the ‘Sweet Talk’  Designer Series Paper in the mini catalog.  I fussy cut candies for the inside.  The Happy Valentine’s Day fits so perfectly in the opening and is from the retired ‘Heartfelt’ stamp set.  The ribbon is the Faux Linen Real Red ribbon from the mini catalog.

   

For the Thank You card and a card for Mom I made these:

.    .  

The paper is from the ‘Flowering Fields’ designer series paper, also in the mini catalog and I used the ‘Jar of Flowers’ stamp set to make a bouquet the perfect size for the pocket opening.  I had a stack of products by the time I finished:

  • Delivering Cheer stamp set – shadow under the jar
  • Positve Thoughts stamp set – Hugs, Prayers, Love
  • Forever Blossoms stamp set – All of me loves all of you
  • Prized Peony stamp set – Love & thanks to a dear friend
  • Jar of Flowers stamp set – Tulips & stems, jar stamped on a window sheet with stazon ink
  • Detailed Bands Dies – cut once in Basic White and once in Fresh Freesia
  • Stampin’ Blends – Lt Fresh Freesia, Dk & Lt Soft Succulent, Dk Rich Razzleberry, Lt Highland Heather, Pineapple Punch

To the above CTC instructions I added a Gorgeous Grape belly band permanently attached  – 1″ X 8 1/4″, score at 1/4″ and then gently fold to determine where it will wrap on the side, then score that fold.

For the bow on the jar I used a 1/8″ X 4″ strip of Gorgeous Grape and folded in a 45 degree fold to which I added a second 1/8″ X 1 1/2″ strip tucked in at the fold.

I also added a 3 X 4 Basic White piece to go on back of the insert for writing a message, a doily and three little brass butterflies.

.  I love the little fussy cut flower laying on the ground in the insert!  Nice touch. 

Thank you, Sal!  Let’s look at the cards from those who participated and sent me pictures.

Joy used the cut off for the pocket to make a second card and the Layering Ovals punch for two different greetings. She’s using products from the Art Gallery suite.

Sharon did three different cards – the pocket card and then used the pieces for two others. She used the ‘Expressions In Ink’ designer series paper and a paper bow from the ‘Pierced Blooms Dies’.

Ann used the hostess ‘Pattern Party’ designer series paper and the ‘Pierced Blooms Dies’.  I love the stripes that peek out from the back:

Heather used the Poppy set in Pool Party for a lovely card:

Thank you, dear stampers, for participating and helping others see the variety of creations from one fun fold pocket card! We have a large flower in the opening, a whole bouquet in the opening, a lovely paper bow or even a heart in the opening!

SAL,     Spring At Last

Thank You Cards

Are you wishing you had a quick and simple card layout for thank you notes?   I have one from a Mystery Card Challenge in our Blended Stampers Group on Facebook.   I used it for my club Zoom Mystery Card challenge #8.

I used ‘Feels Like Frost’ Designer Series Paper with coordinating bases, the Stitched Nested Labels and Metallic Mesh Ribbon.

‘Love & Thanks to a Dear Friend’ is from the Prized Peony stamp set with an inside greeting of ‘Your sweet friendship refreshes the soul’ also from Prized Peony.  The ‘Thank You’ is from ‘Beautiful World’ using a Stampin’ Marker to color just the thank you of the stamp.  Note:  Always use a marker not a blend when coloring the back of a stamp since the blends are alcohol and would stain the stamp.

Here is a close up:

.

.

Now you can see the trick!  You score at halfway-5 1/2 , and again at 6 3/4.  Then you glue the 1 1/4″ section between the 5 1/2 and the 6 3/4 scores to the back half of the card.  Punch out little notches on this glued section and you have a unique placement for your ribbon.  I used the ‘Tailored Tag’ Punch.

Here are cards made by club members:

This was the Christmas card I made for the Blended Stampers group.  We could use all our left over Christmas paper and make this  year’s cards!!

Dreamer!!

For sure!

Did you overlook the beautiful ‘Touched My Heart’ hostess set in the back of the Annual Catalog?  I used it to make Sympathy and Thank You cards in December casing Dawn Michels’ post on Pinterest.

.

.  

The base is Just Jade and the brick background comes from Tasteful Touches.

Base:  Just Jade, 8 1/2 X 5 1/2  Scored at 4 1/4

First Layer (X2):  Whisper White, 5 1/4 X 4

Top Border:  Just Jade, 3 1/4 X 3 1/4

Top:  Whisper White, 3 X 3

Bow:  8″ of  3/8″ Old Olive/Pretty Peacock reversible ribbon

Stamp the heart, the bricks and the greetings in Soft Suede and color the leaves with Just Jade.

The inside greeting is from the set ‘Kindness and Compassion’ which is retired.

What……Breaking your own rule of not using retired products?  

Once in a while, what you want to say overrides the self imposed rule!

This was a swap card using ‘His Love’ stamp set.   I made it months ago and it has been sitting on my desktop waiting to be posted.  It seems a good place to post with these cards since it would be good for encouraging someone.

Base:  Mint Macaron,  4 1/4 X 11, Scored at 5 1/2

Layer 1:  Ornate Garden DSP in Mint Macaron with Gold Foil,  4 X 5 1/4

Layer 2: Mint Macaron,  3 X 4 1/2

Layer 3:  Whisper White, 2 3/4 X 4 1/4, Embossed with Dainty Diamonds Embossing Folder

Ribbon:  Pool Party Sheer 3/8″ Ribbon,  4″ to wrap the layer and 8″ to make a bow.

Medallion:  Die Cut with Tasteful Labels a Large Circle in Gold Foil, 2 1/4 X 2 1/4 needed, a small circle with the Tasteful Labels Die, 1 1/2 X 1 1/2, in Whisper White, and punch a 1 3/8 circle from the matching DSP for the middle of the medallion.

Daisy:  Punch a large daisy in the DSP and another with the Gold card stock.  Use the small daisy punch with DSP for the top of the daisy and embellish with a Gold Gilded Gem.

For the inside:  Stamp off the Bible and then stamp it on the card stock.  (This is sometimes called ‘second generation’ stamping- you stamp off your freshly inked stamp on scrap paper before stamping on your card stock to create a lighter image.)  Stamp ‘Always’ in full strength ink on top of the Bible.

I hope these cards have given you a ‘pinch of creativity to spice up your crafting world’.

That tag line is how I came to be!

Indeed!  Thank you for your time in visiting today.  If you don’t have a demonstrator, I would be honored to help you out with your crafting needs.

SAL,  (So At Last – the new year begins)
