3 Cards Using Happy Harvest Kit from Queen & Company

Hello friends. Well November is upon us and Thanksgiving fast approaches. I don’t know about you, but I like to send out cards to friends and family for all the fall and winter holidays during September through December. These cute shaker cards were made using the Queen & Company Happy Harvest Kit and are primarily Thanksgiving cards. Their shaker dies and kits make it super easy to create adorable shaker cards in a shorter amount of time than if you have to create them from scratch.

For this first card, I cut down a piece of Lawn Fawn 100lb Paper Bag Cardstock 8.5 x 11″ to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″ to make a card base. Then cut a piece of the pattern paper to 4 x 5-1/4″ Happy Harvest Paper Pad (may be unavailable) from the Happy Harvest Fall Kit (may be unavailable) for the top panel.

Using two of the pattern papers and dies included in the kit, I diecut the acorns and created the shaker element with the acetate, self-adhesive foam shapes and pearl toppings in 3 colors. I diecut a stitched circle from Queen & Company Foundation Dies #1 with some more of the pattern papers, a scallop circle from Stampin’ Up! Early Espresso 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock, and 3 banners with the Queen & Company Foundation Dies #2.

I adhered the circles on the bottom 2/3rds of the card over to the left side of the front panel and trimmed any excess. Then adhered the banners and stamped a sentiment from the stampset (not sold seperately) included in the kit using Catherine Pooler Orange Twist Ink.

I added some Ashland™ Natural Jute Twine from my stash to the bottom of the card panel and adhered the shaker element and extra acorn image. I adhered the card panel to the card base and embellished it with some Nuvo Crystal Drops in Dark Walnut.

On the inside I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5″X11″ to 4 x 5-1/4″ and added a piece of Happy Harvest Paper Pad from the Happy Harvest Fall Kit, measuring 1-3/8 x 4” to the bottom. I stamped a “HAPPY THANKSGIVING” sentiment from the kit with Stampin’ Up! Early Espresso Ink.

For the second card, I cut down a piece of Stampin’ Up! Early Espresso 8-1/2″ X 11″ to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″ to make a card base. Then cut a piece of the pattern paper to 4 x 5-1/4″ Happy Harvest Paper Pad (may be unavailable) from the Happy Harvest Fall Kit (may be unavailable) for the top panel.

I diecut the large banner from the Queen & Company Foundation Dies #2 set in a pattern paper from the kit and backed it with a piece of Stampin’ Up! Early Espresso 8-1/2″ X 11″ and trimmed around the banner leaving an 1/8″ border. I also diecut a smaller banner from the same die set, a stitched circle from the Queen & Company Foundation Dies #1 from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5″X11″ and a scallop circle from the same set with the green glitter paper included in the kit. I adhered the banners and the circles to the card panel and stamped a sentiment from the Happy Harvest stampset included in the kit onto the white circle with Stampin’ Up! Early Espresso Ink.

I created the turkey shaker using the dies and shaker elements included in the kit. I added some toppings in aqua light and dark browns. I finished off the card by adding some Love From Lizi Pin-stripe Peel-offs in Gold Mirror Moondust and Nuvo Crystal Drops in Ripened Pumpkin and Caribbean Ocean.

On the inside I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5″X11″ to 4 x 5-1/4″ and added a piece of Happy Harvest Paper Pad from the Happy Harvest Fall Kit, measuring 1-1/4 x 4” to the bottom. I stamped a “HAPPY THANKSGIVING” sentiment from the kit with Stampin’ Up! Early Espresso Ink.

For the third card, I cut down a piece of Stampin’ Up! Crumb Cake 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″ to make a card base. Then cut a piece of the pattern paper to 4 x 5-1/4″ Happy Harvest Paper Pad (may be unavailable) from the Happy Harvest Fall Kit (may be unavailable) for the top panel and adhered it to the card base.

Next, I created a double shaker element using the sunflower dies and shaker pieces using some of the Happy harvest pattern paper in the kit. I added some of the toppings in brown to the center and yellow ones to the sunflower portion.

I diecut leaves from the Catherine Pooler Fallen Leaves Dies from some of the green glitter paper included. I adhered the sunflower shaker to the card panel and then I diecut several of the sunflower frame the same striped pattern paper as the background and placed them on the paper, matching the stripes so that it appears as it is embossed. I adhered the stem and leaves.

I stamped the “Harvest Blessings” onto a piece of a brown polka dot using Versamark Ink and Wow White Opaque Embossing Powder, making sure to prep the surface with anti-static powder beforehand. I popped it up onto the card with some 3M Foam Tape and finished off the card with some Nuvo Glitter Drops in Orange Soda.

On the inside I stamped a “HAPPY THANKSGIVING” sentiment from the kit with Stampin’ Up! Crumb Cake Ink. And that completes this card.

Cards, Celebrations, Fall, Just Because

Donut Cards

Happy Monday everyone! Coming to you today with some fun and delicious cards. I love coffee and donuts but since I am trying to be good (yeah, right!) and not eat too much sugar, I will make them into cards instead.

This die from Honey Bee Stamps really makes them super quick and easy to make. There are also so many ways to embellish this cute donut card. It can be for birthdays, holidays, seasons, or just because.

All the cards bases were created using Lawn Fawn Paper Bag 8. 1/2 x 11” Cardstock along with the Honey Bee Stamps Donut Card Die. On this first card I used Lawn Fawn Guava 8 1/2 x 11” Cardstock and the Honey Bee Stamps Donut Card Die to create the frosting and added a layer of orange Queen & Co Rainbow Glitter Fun Foam to highlight the sprinkles. In retrospect I should’ve made the sprinkles 3D, but oh well.

I diecut the sentiment from Neenah Solar White 8 1/2 x 11” 110lb Cardstock using the Honey Bee Stamps Donut Worry Dies for the inside and the outside of the card. I used Stampin’ Up! Vellum for the sentiment shadow. I glued all of it with Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue.

The second card uses SU! Highland Heather 8 1/2 x 11 Cardstock for the frosting and a layer of light pink Queen & Co Rainbow Glitter Fun Foam to highlight the sprinkles.

I diecut the word ‘Sweet’ from Neenah Solar White 8 1/2 x 11” 110lb Cardstock using the Catherine Pooler Celebrate Friends Stamp of Approval Collection Sweet Die. I then ink blended Catherine Pooler It’s A Girl ink to create an ombré effect on the word. I glued that down onto a scrap of Stampin’ Up! 8 1/2 x 11 Early Espresso 8 1/2 x 11” cardstock and fussycut around it to create a shadow. I stamped the word ‘You’re’ from Stampin’ Up!’s Cool Treats (retired) with Versamark clear embossing ink onto a piece of Stampin’ Up! 8 1/2 x 11 Early Espresso 8 1/2 x 11” cardstock and heat embossed it with Wow white embossing powder. I adhered those two pieces to the front of the card with Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue.

On the inside I diecut out a donut shape using the Honey Bee Stamps Donut Card Die circle die from Neenah Solar White 8 1/2 x 11” 110lb Cardstock and stamped a sentiment from Stampin’ Up!’s Cool Treats (retired) in Catherine Pooler Designs Over Coffee Ink and glued the piece inside the card.

For the last card I had to make it a Fall card, not only because I love Fall but also because I love pumpkin spiced everything and donuts are no exception. Can’t wait for Fall people!

Anyways I used SU! Pumpkin Pie 8 1/2 x 11 Cardstock for the yummy orange frosting and layered purple Queen & Co Rainbow Glitter Fun Foam (ok it’s a little bit more Halloween than Fall but that’s ok ‘cuz I live Halloween too).

For the sentiment, I stamped part of it using the Honey Bee Stamps Happy Fall Y’all stampset, Versamark clear embossing ink and heat embossed it with Wow white embossing powder onto a piece of Stampin’ Up! 8 1/2 x 11 Early Espresso 8 1/2 x 11” cardstock. Then diecut the ‘Fall’ word from Stampin’ Up! 8 1/2 x 11 Early Espresso 8 1/2 x 11” cardstock with the Fall die from the same stampset.

To make the word appear to float over the donut hole, I used a strip of Stampin’ Up! Vellum and adheredit over the hole. I used the circle die in the Donut Card dieset to trim the sides. I then adhered the rest of the sentiment pieces above and below. I used Nuvo Crystal Drops in Violet Galaxy to add some embellishment.

Lastly I stamped a sentiment from the Queen & Co Happy Harvest Kit with Catherine Pooler Designs Over Coffee Ink and this card is complete.

Before I go I just want to say that if you want to make these cards and you don’t have all the supplies I used and don’t want to purchase them, just look through your stash of stamps, dies, and papers and make them your own. It’s fun to play with different looks. The possibilities are really endless. Have FUN with it!!!
