Easy Halloween Wreath Card Featuring Pretty Pink Posh

Hi friends. I’m back after some unplanned time off!It’s great to be creating again. I’m cutting it close but let’s start with a cute Halloween card. This stampset from Pretty Pink Posh, Halloween Wreath is so cute! I love all the fun images. They are easy to color with markers, pencils etc or leave them uncolored. You can also make a wreath from the singular images instead of using the wreath image.

I started by cutting a piece of Simon Says Stamp 100lb Black 8-1/2 x 11″ Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to make the card base and a second piece cut to 4 x 5-1/4″ which I embossed with an embossing folders from the Queen & Co’s Embossing Folder Bundle. I added a strip of pattern paper from the Honey Bee Stamps Halloween Harvest 6×6 Paper Pad measuring 3/4 x 5-1/4″ and another measuring 1-1/4 x 5-1/4″.

I stamped the wreath and all the images as well as a sentiment in the center from the Pretty Pink Posh Halloween Wreath Stampset with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with WOW Embossing Powder in Super Fine Opaque Bright White. I colored them with Prismacolor Pencils and diecut the images with the coordinating dies. Tip: Make sure to use a good amount of anti-static powder when using embossing powder on dark cardstock or it will stick where you don’t want. I used 3M Foam Tape to pop up the wreath.

I finished it off by adding some sequins from the Honey Bee Stamps Halloween Harvest Sequin Mix.

On the inside of the card, I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 4 x 5-1/4″ and the same purple paper I used on the front of the card from Honey Bee Stamps Halloween Harvest 6×6 Paper Pad to 1 x 5-1/4″ and stamped a sentiment from the Pretty Pink Posh Halloween Wreath Stampset with Catherine Pooler Designs Mandarin Spice Ink. I also added some extra images I had stamped.

Mother’s Day Jar of Flowers Slimline Card

Hi friends. Mother’s Day (in the U.S.) is coming up so I decided to make a nice floral bouquet for mom. I had to pull out my well loved mason jar stamp set from Lawn Fawn to give the flowers a cute holder. I love the How You Bean? stampset! So many cute cards you can make with it.

I decided to make modified slimline card. I started by cutting a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 7 x 7-1/2″ and scored to 3-1/2 and a top panel to 3-1/4 x 7-1/4″. I used the My Favorite Things Mini Cloud Edges Stencil and Tim Holtz TUMBLED GLASS Distress Oxide Ink Pad by Ranger to create a cloud background.

Next I stamped the mason jar from Lawn Fawn How You Bean? onto the top panel with Catherine Pooler Midnight Ink and the stems and leaves from Queen & Company’s Love Jar Kit stampset with Catherine Pooler Eucalyptus Ink. I added a little shading to the mason jar with BG000 and 0 Copic Markers and diecut it using the coordinating dies. I also diecut two additional jars from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock which I adhered behind the image to add dimension.

I stamped several flowers from the Queen & Company’s Love Jar Kit stampset onto a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with Catherine Pooler Be Mine, It’s a Boy, Queen For a Day, Tutti Frutti, and Limoncello Inks. I diecut them all with the coordinating Love Jar Flowers & Stem Dies.

I adhered the card panel and mason jar to the card base and the flowers, using Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop up some of the flowers. I stamped the from the Lawn Fawn HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY Stampset onto a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock with Catherine Pooler Tutti Frutti Ink and Catherine Pooler Eucalyptus Ink. I diecut the “happy” with the coordinating sentiment dies and trimmed the “Mother’s Day” to 1/2 x 2-1/4″. I finished off the card by adding some Nuvo Drops in Ivory Shell to the flowers and highlights to the mason jar with White Gel Pen.

On the inside of the card, I stamped a sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Well Said Stampset with Catherine Pooler Midnight Ink and added some extra diecut flowers.

Card Kits, Cards, Christmas, Fall

Queen and Company’s North Pole Kit

I love most of their shaker kits, but this one by far, the North Pole Kit, is my favorite Queen and Company Card Kit. It pairs great with their Glitter Foam (I used some for the hat card). The kit Includes: 25 steel dies, 6×6 paper pad, 4×6 stamp set, 11 custom toppings and 21 foam and acetate shakers. Tons of goodies to make tons of cards and they sell refills for the paper pad, shaker foam, acetate and toppings!

I started these cards by cutting some Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″. I cut three of those to create my card bases. For this first card, I diecut another piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with the Catherine Pooler Designs Holly and Berries Coverplate and adhered it to the card. (Tip: Save the outer border that is cut with this die to use later under the pattern paper. It will even out the papers so there’s no drooping.) I cut a piece of pattern paper from the North Pole Paper Pad (included in the kit) to 2-3/16 x 4-1/4″ and a red strip from the North Pole Solids Paper Pad to 2/16 x 4-1/4″ and adhered them to the card.

I assembled the tree shaker and added the toppings inside. I used the paper from the North Pole Solids Paper Pad for the tree and the trunk (saved the inside (solid) piece of the tree frame). I added some left over foam from the shakers to the tree trunk. I save all the extra foam from the shakers because they can be used on other cards.

I used the Queen and Company Sentiment Stacker Dies #1 and the North Pole Solids Paper Pad to diecut “Merry & Bright” and some Vellum for the shadow, adhered them together and to the card. I added the tree and trunk to the card and finished it off by adding some Nuvo – Crystal Drops in Autumn Red to the tree.

On the inside of the card, I added a red piece of North Pole Solids Paper Pad, measuring 1-1/8 x 4-1/4″and a piece of North Pole Paper Pad, measuring 1″x 4-1/4″ and stamped a sentiment from the stampset included in the kit and Catherine Pooler Daydream Ink. I added the solid inside piece of the tree frame to the bottom of the card.

Dimensions


For the second card, I cut a piece of pattern paper from the North Pole Paper Pad (included in the kit) to 2-7/8 x 4-1/4″ and a red strip from the North Pole Solids Paper Pad to 2/16 x 4-1/4″ and adhered them to the card base. I also used the die for the santa hat’s pom pom and diecut 7 from some Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to create a cute border. I thought they looked like puffy clouds and just adds some more whimsy to the card.

I assembled the hat shaker and added the toppings inside. I used red and green glitter foam from Queen and Company’s Glitter Fun Foam – Rainbow Pack to turn this santa hat into an elf hat. I saw Kristie Marcotte do this last year and thought it was adorable so I created my own. I added some left over foam from the shakers to the pom pom and edges of the hat trim once I adhered them together. this ensures that all of the hat is the same height.

I used the Catherine Pooler Happy Holidays Die and the North Pole Solids Paper Pad to diecut a sentiment and adhered to the card. I added the cute hat to the card, and finished it by adding some shimmer to the sentiment with Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Sparkle Pens. Look how sparkly that hat is!

On the inside of the card, I added a piece of North Pole Paper Pad, measuring 9/16″ x 4-1/4″ and stamped a sentiment from the stampset included in the kit and Catherine Pooler Lime Rickey Ink.

Dimensions


For the third card, I cut a piece of pattern paper from the North Pole Paper Pad (included in the kit) to 2-11/16 x 4-1/4″ and a red strip from the North Pole Solids Paper Pad using the scallop border die from the Honeybee Stamps Gingerbread House Add-on and adhered them to the card. This die is meant for the roof of the house but I though it made a great border!

I assembled the wreath shaker and added the toppings inside (saved the inside (solid) piece of the tree frame). I used green and red pattern paper from the North Pole Paper Pad for the wreath and bow.

I used the Queen and Company Sentiment Stacker Dies #1 and red glitter paper from Simon Says Stamp Cardstock Assortment Glitter 6×6 Pack to diecut a sentiment and Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ for the shadow, adhered them together and to the card. I added the wreath to the card, and finished it off by adding Christmas Red Ranger Stickles Glitter Glue for berries. I find this also balances the glitter in the sentiment.

On the inside of the card, I added a green piece of North Pole Solids Paper Pad, measuring 1 x 4-1/4″and a piece of North Pole Paper Pad, measuring 7/8″x 4-1/4″ and stamped a sentiment from the stampset included in the kit and Catherine Pooler Rockin Red Ink. I added the solid inside piece of the wreath frame to the top of the card.

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.
