“Create With Kathe” For Thursday 23rd October 2014



Wellll … actually that should be {not well and …} “Create With Kathe” for Tuesday AND Thursday, as I had 3 Classes last week!
I was so thankful for the Tuesday Class, as it meant I had designed and made up Kits ready for Tuesday AND Thursday, as my son broke his arm on the Wednesday, on the way to school, which meant I spent the whole day at the Hospital with him, getting his arm manipulated and realigned, before being put in plaster past his elbow – poor kid!

We made two projects last week, the first a textured card in tones of Soft Suede, Crumb Cake and Naturals White, with the cute message “A Little Birdie Told Me” from the Hostess Stamp Set “Hello Love”.
The second project was a pop-up Christmas card, featuring a Snow Glow and the stamp sets “Holiday Home”, “White Christmas” and “Wondrous Wreath”.   This card is a case of a sketch by Paula Dobson from her Facebook page "Stampinantics"…

Project 1 Textured Card W/ “Hello Love” Stamp Set


This card could be used a congratulations card for a new job, new house, new baby, new relationship etc, as the sentiment “A Little Birdie Told Me” can lead towards any occasion.
The cardbase for this card is Soft Suede {with the corners rounded with the Project Life Corner Punch}, with layers of Crumb Cake and Naturals White.
A mesh layer of construction tape is placed on the card horizontally, then the Crumb Cake layer which is cut using the “Top Note” die.
A second Top Note is cut in Naturals White and the stitched edge is trimmed, including the horizontal points, so that the Burlap and Naturals Chevon Ribbon will lay flat.


Half a “Tea Lace Paper Doily” is adhered to the Naturals White Top Note, then the Burlap, which has been cut with the “Large Scallop” Die, then the Naturals Chevron Ribbon are adhered with orange Sticky Strip, which is xtra strong and perfect for adhering ribbon.
The Naturals White layer is then adhered with Dimensionals to the Crumb Cake layer.


The bird and sentient “A Little Birdie Told Me” are from the “Hello Love” Stamp Set and are stamped in Early Espresso on Naturals White, the outline for the sentiment is stamped in Soft Suede.
The bird and sentiment are then fussy cut, sponged with Crumb Cake and adhered with the Dimensionals.
The finishing touch is a Candy Dot “anchor” made form Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper, that has been punched with the Crop-A-Dile, and adhered with a Glue Dot.


For the card insert, Naturals White cardstock has been corner rounder, and negative detail created by using the “Hearts Border” Punch.
Soft Suede cardstock I then stamped with a feather form the “Four Feathers” stamp set in Versamark, and heat set with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder.
The “Bird Builder” Punch is then used to punch a bird with the feather lying along the bottom of the bird.
The finishing touch is the anchor, which is created by making a negative detail by punching a small hole with the Crop-A-Dile, so that the Soft Suede cardstock shows through the hole. 
Wah-lah ... Textured Card W/ "Hello Love" Stamp Set done! 


Project 2 Pop-Up Christmas Card With Snow Globe


The idea for the card came from a photo of cards that I spotted by Paula Dobson from “Stampinantics”, on her Facebook page, I changed it up more than a little, adding the pop-up on the card insert, and changing the Snow Globe scene.


The cardbase for this card is Whisper White, with an overlay of Whisper White. The overlay has been scored along the outer edges with the Simply Scored Scoring Tool.
The sentiment “Happy Wonderful Christmas” is from the “Wondrous Wreath” stamp set, and coloured using Stampin’ Write Makers in Early Espresso and Real Red.
The Snow Globe is stamped on a separate piece of Whisper White cardstock with Black StazOn, and coloured using a Sponge Dauber in Soft Sky, and Stampin’ Write Markers in Crumb Cake, Pumpkin Pie and Real Red.


I made up several samples so the ladies could see by just changing the position of the 2 ½” Circle Punch, it can change the whole scene of the Snow Globe.
Position the 2 ½” Circle Punch, and punch the scene that you prefer.
Dazzling Diamonds Stampin’ Glitter is added for effect, along the tree trunks, the snow, and on the snow man/person.
A small snowflake from the “Frosted Sequins” is added before the Window Sheet is adhered with Crystal Effects.
Adding the Window Sheet is the very last thing to be done, once the card has been fully completed, as the card needs to dry flat, as the Window Sheet can move.
The base of the Snow Globe is created by punching 2x “Word Window” in Crumb Cake.
A Basic Metal Button or Vintage Faceted Designer Button has been added to the bottom corner of the card to anchor it, and is tied with either White Bakers Twine or Early Espresso Bakers Twine.


The card insert is a full lining of Whisper White, with the pop-out being created by punching 2x “Word Window” punches along the crease line.
A small house from the “Holiday Home” stamp set has been stamped in StazOn Black, and coloured using Aqua Painters with Soft Sky and Crumb Cake, and the Real Red Stampin’ Marker, and cut using the “Homemade Holiday” Framelits.
The little trees are also from the “Holiday Home” stamp set, and stamped in Pear Pizzazz and fussy cut.
The sentiment “from our home to yours at christmastime” is from the “Holiday Home” stamp set and stamped in Real Red.
The second sentiment “May happy moments & cherished memories surround you with joy this season” is from the “Wondrous Wreath” stamp set and is stamped in Early Espresso.


A little snow man/person is stamped at the lower right hand corner, and is coloured with Stampin’ Makers in Pumpkin Pie and Real Red, which anchors the card nicely.
Wah-lah … Pop-Up Christmas Card With Snow Globe done!

And here here are my other two samples that I made up ...
