So Very Thankful
by Dana Kirby

Hi Friends! It is Dana here today sharing a fun Fall card with you all that uses the Gorgeous Leafy Background die. I am in love with this die, and the possibilities are endless. Let's get started, shall we?

I started my card by die cutting the Leafy Background from white cardstock two times. On my first pass through my die cutting machine I applied as little pressure as possible to try and keep as many pieces (leaves) as I could to stay inside the die. I then added strips of scotch tape to the back of this first die cut to help hold all of the little pieces inside the die. I used my Copic markers to color all of the leaves in fall colors. I didn't worry about staying in the lines because I knew my edges would be covered, you also want to make sure you go over the edges a little so that there is not any white showing. Next, I ran the Leafy Background die through my die cutting machine a second time to get a clean cut.

Next, I used a liquid glue to attach the white Leafy Background die cut over my colored leaves. I love how the leaves look like they are inlaid without having to do all of the work. By adding the tape behind my colored leaves I knew they were not going to fall out when I attached the two die cuts together. Once I had my square finished I cut it in half so I could use it on the top and bottom of my card design.

For my sentiment, I used the Autumn Leaves sentiment set. I stamped my sentiment and the little leaves with VersaMark ink and heat set gold embossing powder onto my cardstock. I then attached my Leafy Background to the top and bottom of my card panel. To finish my card I attached my card panel to a top folding A2 card base and tied some twine under my sentiment.

Thanks for joining me today. I hope I inspired you to try this fun and easy technique. 

Enjoy your day!

Challenge Reminder: Fall Frolic
by Candice Crawford

 

Poppystamps November 2019 Challenge

Hi Crafty Friends, 

Candice here reminding you there is still time to participate in this month's blog challenge. Poppystamps blog challenges are fun and so easy to participate. When you link up a project to our challenge you are automatically entered to win a $20 gift certificate to the store.  You dont have to have a blog to link your design - you can link to Instagram, Flickr or any other on line gallery. This month's challenge link ends November 28. 

For a bit of inspiration with the challenge, I created this cute tag treat holder that can be used at your holiday place setting or gifted to your hostess at Thanksgiving. This treat holder is so easy to make and can be stuffed with candy or a homemade treat.  

November Challenge 1

To make this project, start by die cutting a tag from the largest tag from the double stitched tag frames set in some kraft cardstock. Remember to keep your tag and tag frame together as one piece. Next die cut a strip of leaves from the maple leaf side strips and stencil set from white cardstock. Separate the leaves from the strip by cutting them with your scissors. Next color the leaves with your distress oxide inks in festive berries, carved pumpkin, spiced marmalade, old olive and peeled paint to create the image of fall leaves. 

Set your tag and leaves aside, so you have space to create the treat holder. Cut a piece of coordinating kraft cardstock to 5 1/2 inches long by 2 3/4 inches wide. For the sake of my tutorial I am using white cardstock to display the instructions. 

Cutting and scoring paper 1

Next score your paper on the 5 1/2inch side at 1/4, 1, 4 1/2 and 5. Then on the 2 3/4 inch side, score the paper at 2 1/4.

 

Scoring the paper

Next with a pair scissors cut off the two end squares along the score lines. With the two remaining squares, snip only the top portion of the two remaining squares on the score line so that it can be folded inward and attached to the bottom flap. 

Cutting the ends

Next, while your paper is still flat, stamp your sentiment or greeting. I used the sentiment So very Thankful from the Autumn leaves stamp set. On the opposite side of the paper from your stamped image, fold all of your score lines to form an open box shape. Use either a strip of 1/4 inch score tape or 2 strips of 1/8 inch score tap on each of your folded flaps. Assemble the bottom portion of the box together first with the score tape.

Adding Score Tape

Now attach the open box to your tag using the score tape placed along the side flaps. Adhere your colored leaves to your box. Next fill your tag treat holder with candy, homemade baked goods, a gift card or whatever you little heart desires. The recipient will just love this adorable little holder as well as the gift. I filled my treat holder with a few Twix mini candy bars. My absolute favorite! 

November Challenge 1

I hope today's project gave you a bit a of inspiration to participate in this month's challenge. Thanks for joining me today and Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Fall Y'all!
by Jeanne Jachna

Happy-Fall-Two

Hi friends!  It's Jeanne here today and I'm sharing a fall card!  I just love fall!  It's my favorite time of year!  I love the cooler temperatures and watching the change of season in my area.  I'm like a little kid stomping on crunchy leaves and picking up all my favorites I find while I'm walking the dog. 

Happy-Fall-Two
My card starts with the Leafy Background die.  I cut if from white card stock, poked out all the little leaves and then inked it with distress ink.  Next I splattered it with water and set it aside to dry.  I cut the panel a second time and left all the die cut leaves in place before inking it in shades of yellow and orange.  The two panels are adhered over each other and adhered to a 4.5" square card base. 

Happy-Fall-Two

I added a small Double Stitch Circle Frame to the center of the design for a focal point and a Pointed Square Frame to the outer edge to give a finished look to the card.  I stamped a sentiment from the Autumn Leaves stamp set and adhered it over the circle with adhesive foam tape.  This makes it easy to tuck colorful Stitched Oak Trio leaves underneath. 

Happy-Fall-Two
A few Whittle Squirrels add a whimsical look to the design.   It's fun to watch them running around with their own treasures to buy and save for a later day. 

Happy-Fall-Two

I hope you have a great day filled with simple pleasures!

Challenge Reminder

Hi friends!  It's Jeanne here today and I want to remind you to play along with our November challenge - Fall Frolic!   We're looking for all things Fall - and the first thing that comes to mind for me is colorful leaves.  Whenever I'm  on a walk with Moriko (my fur baby) I pick up little treasures I find.    Sometimes I find a feather or a shiny rock... once I actually found a turtle that seemed lost.. but this time of year you'll find acorns and pretty leaves in my pocket.
Coffee-Lover-Four
I'm inspired by what I see - and while I haven't found any purple, pink or blue leaves on my adventures, I think I would like to! I like to use unexpected colors to add a playful look to my designs.

I started my card by cutting the Leafy Ornament Frame from red card stock.  I replaced the side and center panels with yellow/orange card stock pieces.  They're all adhered flat onto a 4.5" square card base.     

Coffee-Lover-One

Next I added the Classic Coffee Cup to the center of the frame with adhesive foam tape.  The raised mug makes it easy to tuck colorful leaves and berries underneath.  To get lots of contrast I chose leaf colors different than the background (die cut frame) colors.   A Simple Hello die cut sentiment fits perfectly in the bottom corner of the frame.

What's better than a nice warm cuppa your favorite to warm you when you get home from a long walk on a crisp fall day?   It's the simple things that make life great!
