Thankful Gnome Fall Card

Gnomes are cute and fun even on a Thankful Fall Card.

Hello everyone!

Today I am sharing a cute Gnome card I have created using the Spellbinders Stamp and Die of the month for Sep 22.

Step By Step Instructions to create the fall gnome card

  • Stamp the images with Memento Tuxedo black ink which is alcohol friendly ink and die cut the images using the coordinating dies.
  • Color the images in your choice of color combination with Copic Markers. I picked Blue-green, Orange and grey.
  • Emboss a panel of white card-stock. I used The Embossing folder of the month for Sep 22.
  • Die cut three circles in relatively matching colors. I took two patten papers in orange and blue-green from my stash.
  • Adhere the embossed piece with liquid glue directly of a A2 card-base. I wanted my card in a landscape style with the fold on top.
  • Add the circles in the lower portion of the embossed panel aligning the bottoms.
  • Arrange the gnome, pumpkins and the wheelbarrow with foam tape.
  • Embellish with some gems for extra interest.
  • Stamp the sentiment and cut it into a strip with the ends trimmed off at an angle. Adhere that with foam tape underneath the gnome.

Here are some more photos in different angle.

Here’s one that shows the closeup of the card where you can see the dimension.

Fall Leaves Thankful Card

Fall leaves have so many varieties and colors. It is so fun to create a fall thankful cards with a bunch of fall leaves in them. This one is special as the fall leaves are not just die cut but also embroidered.

Hello Everyone

Today I am sharing a card with you that features the Small Die Of The Month for September ’22. This die set has a bunch of fall leaves and it’s shadow layer. Also some fall theme word dies that will create a fun fall sentiment when mixed and matched. What’s so special about this die is the fall leaves have holes in them where you can stitch through and create an embroidered leaves.

Now let’s get to the making of the card.

Card Base

I chose a mini slimline size for my card today. Mini slimline is 3 and a half inches wide and 6 and a half inches long. Mine is a horizontal top folding card base made out of Accent Opaque 110 lb card-stock from Amazon.

Decorating My Fall Background

I used another piece of the white card-stock to emboss using the Embossing Folder of the Month for September ’22 and adhered it on the card-front using liquid glue. The burlap piece you see here on the card is a burlap ribbon which was wide enough to place a die cut leafy border over it. The leafy border is from APG Die Of The Month for August ’22. My cards base with the background is done.

The Main Focus

The main focus of the card are these leaves created with the Small Die Of The Month Club for September ’22. I used Spellbinders Terra Cotta Color Essential Card-stock to cut the leaves. The stitching on the leaves is the most special part of this whole card-making process here. I used gold embroidery thread for the stitching. Then I added a gold die cut shadow layer behind them. I used mini glue dots to adhere the embroidered leaf on to the gold layer. I used two different leaves as you can see. The three leaves are then adhered on the border with liquid glue.

The Sentiment

For the sentiment a simple die cut Thankful cut out with one of the dies from the Large Die Of The Month for Sep ’22 was just perfect for this card. As there are a lot of layers and so much going on just a simple sentiment finishes the card.

I loved how my card turned out. Honestly I couldn’t stop staring at this card in awe after I was done creating it. What are your thoughts about it? I hope this inspires you to create a fun fall card with any leaf dies you have. Happy Crafting!!

Embroidered Cards / Spellbinders Stitched Alphabets Release

Spellbinders stitched alphabet die release

Embroidered cards are so unique and trendy nowadays. Spellbinders has released a lot of stitching dies in the past which you can do some simple stitching and create fun cards.

Hello everyone !

Today I’m sharing three cards I created using the Stitched Alphabet Dies collection from the latest release by Spellbinders. This release is very special as it has the whole set of alphabets. So you can create any word you like. I picked six dies that create the word THANKS from among all the letters of the alphabet set.

First Card

My first card is a regular slimline size landscape style card. This one measures 3 and a half by 8 and a half inches.

  1. I started by die cutting the alphabets with white card-stock.
  2. Then inked the die cuts with distressed oxide inks in rainbow order.
  3. I took silver Embroidery thread and started stitching.
  4. Layered a 3 by x 8 inches piece of pattern paper with a slightly bigger card stock inked with purple for the background of my card.
  5. Then I arranged the letters in front of the card. Altering between liquid glue and foam tape.
  6. The sentiment is from Stitched Alphabets Descriptors Sentiments stamp set stamped with Versamark ink on black card stock strip and embossed with white embossing powder.

Here are some more photos of this card.

Second Card

This second card is also a slimline size which measures 3 and a half by 8 and a half inches . But this one I created in a portrait style. I use Accent Opaque White card-stock for my card-bases.

  1. I die cut the letters with white card stock. But this time i didn’t add the stitching. As I wanted the colorful shadow layer behind the white letters.
  2. I die cut the shadow layer with pattern paper.
  3. Added the white letters on the pattern piece layer with foam tape.
  4. Arranged the letters of the word THANKS directly on the card front with liquid glue
  5. The sentiment again is from Stitched Alphabet Descriptors Sentiments stamp set. Stamped with Versamark ink and embossed with White Embossing Powder.

These sentiments are so fun. It is a must have in your sentiment stamp collection.
Here are some more photos of this card.

Third Card

When I picked these letters I also thought of what other words i can create. Both my kids’ name start with the letter S and our last name is A. So i could create a monogram card for them.

I love stitching these kinds of dies. But you can also create beautiful cards without the stitching.

  1. I used the letter die and the shadow layer die both together to cut just the outlines of these letters.
  2. Then i cut just the shadow layer with pattern paper.
  3. Adhered them together with liquid glue to get this cool pattern initials with white outlines.
  4. For the background I used a panel of card-stock embossed using Simon Says Stamp embossing folder. Matted it with slightly bigger red card stock.
  5. Added the letters with foam tape on the background
  6. The again I added another embossed sentiment strip from the Stitched Alphabets Descriptors Sentiments stamp set to complete my card.

Here are some more photos of this card.

I am sure I can come up with tons of design ideas to use this die set. As alphabet dies are very versatile. It is totally worth investing in these dies.

I hope this inspires you to create fun cards like this using this release.

Hugs,

Thank You Teacher Card And RV Release

Hello Everyone!

Today I am sharing this Thank You Teacher card featuring Rachel Vass Designs release called Piglets in School.

Schools are almost over for a long summer break here in United States. Due to the Covid19 kids here in New York are doing online classes. Amidst all these uncertainties and chaos we still need to be thankful to all the teachers that have dedicated their lives to these little kids.

This card is to express gratitude to those teachers.

Here’s my card for today

This is a handmade card made using Rachel Vass digital stamp called Piglets in school. This stamp is printed and colored in copic markers

This release consists of these cute piglets and some beautiful sentiments unlike the usual floral stamp releases. I have always loved coloring floral images and making cards with them but these piglets are so adorable. I enjoyed coloring them with Copic Markers.

The girl piglet I colored with a lighter skin color and a little blush on her cheeks.

The boy had a little darker skin. I colored their clothes in colors that match with this polka dot patter paper I picked for the background.

The piglets are adhered on the background with foam tapes for dimension.

The sentiment ‘Thank You Teacher’ is also from the same digital stamp which is printed and cut in a strip.

This kind of brings some of the memories of my elemnetary school days with me and my twin brother going to shcool .

Thank You Cards using Altenew Always There Stamp

Hello and welcome!

I have two Thank You Cards to share here today featuring Altenew Always There Stamp and Die set. Same color combinations, same technique but different layout.

If you love Altenew Stamps and Dies as much as I do then you are at the right place. I share lots of inspirations, Techniques and Beautiful creations all the time. Hope you will get inspired to keep creating beautiful projects.

Background:

First Card:

The background of the first card is a 4 and a quarter by 5 and a half inches panel of Slate Grey card stock from Simon Says Stamp. Cut using three rectangle dies, The outermost die is My Favorite Things and the inner two dies are the Stitches Rectangle dies from Simon Says Stamp. I only cut the panel but didn’t detach it. In fact I added some Scotch Tape at the back to keep in intact. Only purpose of using the dies was to add some stitched border around it for extra interest.

Second Card:

For the second card I had decided I wanted to follow the card sketch I saw at Case this Sketch. The panel again is Slate Grey card stock from Simon Says Stamp. I cut three 1 inch strips of cardstock in white grey and black and added along the middle slighly slanted to match the sketch provided. Then I usded the same outer rectangle die I used on the first card to cut this out.

Focal Image:

The focal image on this card is definitely the beautiful stamp. I only used the outline image of two flowers and two leaves and the coordinating dies. I used white card and splatter some guasche in dark grey and light grey color. Later I realized that I should have just used black because I was going to layer that with vellum anyway which mutes the color a little bit.

I cut some flowers and leave out of this splattered card-stock using the Always there die set.

I took a scrap piece of vellum from my stash and stamped some flowers and leaves with Versamark Watermark Ink. Sprinkled some silver Wow Embossing powder. Then heat set it with a heat gun. Used the dies to cut out those images. Then stamped the centers of the flowers with Mustard Seed Distressed Oxide Ink and embossed that using Ranger Clear Embossing Powder.

I then used Mini Glue dots to layer the vellum flowers and leaves on to the splattered flowers and leaves.

Then arranged the flowers on the background panel I created earlier.

Sentiments:

The sentiments on the cards are from I Adore You Stamp set from Altenew. I love how these sentiments are so versatile it can be used for any occasions.

I stamped the sentiments on black piece of card-stock with Versamark Watermark Ink and embossed using White Wow detail Embossing powder.

Then I cut the sentiments with Simon Says Stamp Sentiment Strip Wafer dies

Card Base:

The card base is 4 and aquarter by 5 and a half inch A2 size note card created by a sheet of 8 and a half by 11 inches 110lb white card stock cut in half along the middle lengthwise and scored in the middle widthwise to create two top folding card bases.

The Finishing Touch:

Finally after adhering the flowers and leaves and the sentiments to the card panel I added some dots of Nuvo Crystal drops in Yellow, White and Black. The centers of the flowers are dotted with black Nuvo Crystal drops to suggest some stamen.

I loved how these cards turned out. I hope you love them too. The combination of black.white grey and yellow is a very elegant combination.

I have linked to most of the supplies I have used on this card. Hope you will give it a try.

Hugs
