"Create With Kathe" for Thursday 27th November 2014



#CreateWithKathe #JorjaRoseFiles

Well … November is all but a memory as we head into the countdown for Christmas!
This past week, we made a Screen Card featuring the Baby Wipe Technique and the stamp sets “Flower Patch”, “Flower Shop”, and “Remembering Your Birthday”, the second card is a Christmas Card featuring Blendabilities and the “Ornamental Pine” stamp set …

Project 1 “Screen Card”, Featuring Baby Wipe Technique


Basic Gray cardstock forms the base of the card, along with layers of Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack and Whisper White cardstock.

The measurements are:
Base Basic Gray 5 ½”x 10”, scored at 2 ½”, 5”, 7 ½”
Panels Designer Series Paper Stack 4 ¼”x2 1/8”
Panels Whisper White Cardstock 4 ¼”x2 1/8”

The Hearts Border Punch and Decorative Label Punch are used on the top and bottom of the card, then the Panels are adhered.
The Baby Wipe Technique is  in colours of Real Red, Crumb Cake and Coastal Cabana, and are use to create the flowers, which are from the “Flower Patch” stamp set, and stamped on to Whisper White cardstock.


The leaves are stamped in Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive, onto Pistachio Pudding cardstock.
The matching “Flower Fair” Framelits are used to cut the flowers and leaves.
The Pansy Punch is used to cut 4 flowers in Pool Party, and then crimped x10 times in the Paper Crimper. The fibres of the cardstock are then broken down, so you can split each Pansy into 2, petal by petal {take it slowly!} = 8 Pansys, which are then Braded with a Candy Dot Brad Base, and a Pearl Basic Jewels added.
Repeat the same process for the Petite Petals, there are 5 Petite Petals punched in Pool Party cardstock, then crimped x10 times in the Paper Crimper. The fibres of the cardstock are then broken down, so you can split each Petite Petals into 2, petal by petal {take it slowly!} = 10 Petite Petals,
Each of the “BWT” flowers have 3 layers of Petite Petals added to the centre of the flowers, which are then Braded with either a Mini Brad or a Candy Dot Brad Base, with a Pearl Basic Jewels added to the latter.


The sentiment “there’s something really worth celebrating today…” and “a birthday wish that’s just for you …” are both from the “Remembering Your Birthday” stamp set, and are stamped in Bermuda Bay on to Whisper White cardstock, and then punched with either the 2 ½” Circle Punch and the Modern Label Punch.
The flowers, leaves and sentiments are then adhered to the front Panels.
The final touch is the row of Pearl Basic Jewels added to the front Panel.


The Whisper White Panels are stamped with Bermuda Bay and Coastal Cabana, and the stamp set “Flower Shop”.
The Panels on the reverse allow for a special sentiment to be written, on the above, each of the people in our household wrote an individual message to our Mom, Mom-In-Law, Grandmom, for her recent birthday.
This card would also be perfect for a girls night out, where each member of the group could write a special birthday message to their friend.

Wah-lah … “Screen Card”, Featuring Baby Wipe Technique done!

Project 2 Christmas Card Featuring “Ornamental Pine”


The “Ornamental Pine” stamp set is the only stamp set used for this card, as I like to demonstrate how one stamp set can be used for an entire project.
The base of this card is Real Red, with layers of Basic Black and Whisper White …

The measurements are:
Base Real Red 5 ½”x 8”, scored at 4”
Layer Real Red 5, 3/8”x 3, 7/8”
Layer Basic Black 5, 3/8”x 3, 7/8”
Insert Whisper White 5, 3/8”x 3, 7/8”
Window Sheet 5, 3/8”x 3, 7/8”

The Basic Black cardstock is stamped with the pine needles and pine cones in Versamark, and White Embossing Powder added, then heat set with the Heat Tool.
They are then coloured with the Blendabilities in Old Olive and Skin Tone Assortment, then Stampin’ Glitter in Dazzling Diamonds is added.
The Real Red layer has a an oval window, which is cut with the Oval Framelits, then sponged with White StazOn to give a snowy effect.
The words “Christmas Wishes” is stamped with Versamark, and White Embossing Powder added, then heat set with the Heat Tool.
The cute embellishment “All Is Calm Snowflake Embellishments” is tied with a Christmasy Bow in Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine, and added to the Real Red layer with a Glue Dot.
The Window Sheet is layered between the Basic Black cardstock and the Real Red cardstock, to form the window.
The 3 layers are then added to the base card with Dimensionals.


For the card insert of Whisper White cardstock, a Star {from the “Itty Bitty Accents Punch pack”} is punched in the corner to give negative detail.
The sentiment “May the peace and beauty of the season remain with you throughout the coming year” is stamped in Real Red.
The finishing touch are the two pine cones, stamped in Baked Brown Sugar and Soft Suede.

Wah-lah … Christmas Card featuring “Ornamental Pine” done!
