September 3D Tutorial Bundle & Blog Hop

It’s a new month and to kick it off, we have the September 3D Tutorial Bundle!  We have the talented Patti Dolan joining us as a guest designer for this month’s tutorial bundle. In addition to the tutorial bundle, the team is featuring a blog hop!  We’re each sharing a second project created using the same products to coordinate with our tutorial project.  You’ll find the blog hop links at the bottom of this post. This month, the team is highlighting projects for Halloween.   

Remember, the projects designed for the 3D tutorial bundle aren’t available elsewhere online.  Therefore, you’ll receive EXCLUSIVE projects in the tutorial bundle.  In addition, we’re including both Imperial and Metric measurements for each project.

Now for a Sneak Peek of the September 3D projects…

Sneak Peek

Here’s my bonus project to coordinate with my September 3D tutorial project.  It’s a “spidery” Halloween card featuring the Magic in this Night Suite. 

Halloween Card

Card Details:
  • Create a card base using Blackberry Bliss cardstock (5-1/2″ x 11″, scored and folded at 4-1/4″).
  • Next, cut a piece of Basic Black cardstock to 4″ x 5-1/4″.  Texture emboss using the Cobwebs 3D Embossing Folder.  After embossing, use a light touch to apply Clear Wink of Stella across the web.
  • Cut two pieces of the 1-1/2″ Metallic Mesh Ribbon approximately 6-1/2″.  Pull and stretch the ribbon to slightly widen.  Then, wrap one of the pieces across the center of the Basic Black layer and adhere.  With the other piece of ribbon, tie around the ribbon attached and wrap to the back of the card.  Use Stampin’ Seal to adhere.  See photo below –
  • Add the “web” layer to the card base using Stampin’ Seal adhesive. 
  • Using the labels dies in the Halloween Magic Dies, cut a piece of the Magic In This Night Designer Series Paper (4-1/2″ x 3″).  NOTE: Place the smaller die inside of the larger die to cut a frame to use on the card interior. 
  • Stamp Happy Halloween from the Hallows Magic Night Stamp Set onto a 3/4″ x 3-1/4″ strip of Whisper White cardstock using Blackberry Bliss Classic Stampin’ Pad.  Add to the center of the small label using Stampin’ Seal and attach to card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.   
  • On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamp one large spider and two small spiders from the Hallows Night Magic Stamp Set using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Cut the large spider with the coordinating die from the Halloween Magic Dies and fussy cut the two small spiders.  Add Iridescent Pearls to each of the spider bodies.  
  • To complete the card, add the spiders to the card front.  Note: use Glue Dots for the 2 small spiders and a Stampin’ Dimensional for the large spider.
  • Card Interior:

The Magic In This Night Suite offers lots of creative options for Halloween projects.  If you’re a fan of Halloween, you’ll want to add the suite to your craft supplies.

Falling Leaves & Acorns

Yesterday, the monthly card class met via ZOOM.  Even though it’s virtual, it is fun to be able to continue creating together with others.  One of the cards from the class features products from the Gilded Autumn Suite Collection.  I’ve titled the card “Falling Leaves & Acorns” since the title describes the design of the page of paper for the background layer.  Perfect for creating fall themed cards is the Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper.  It’s a beautiful paper collection.  The Beautiful Autumn Bundle from the suite includes the Beautiful Autumn Stamp Set and the coordinating Autumn Punch Pack.  Woohoo –  the punch pack coordinates with the leaves and acorns in the specialty designer series paper.  Y’all know I love it when a punch or die coordinates with the designer series paper!

Gilded Autumn Suite

Card Materials and Details:

• Cajun Craze cardstock: 5-1/2” x 8-1/2” and folded at 4-1/4″ to create the card base.
• Mint Macaron cardstock: 5-1/4” x 4” for Layer 1; strip for embossing 3-3/4” x 1-1/4”
• Layer 2: Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper and pieces for punching leaves & acorn
• Very Vanilla cardstock: 1” x 3 1/4” for label; 5” x 4-1/4” for interior
• Punches: Autumn Punch Pack & Lovely Labels Pick a Punch

For the sentiment use the Beautiful Autumn Stamp Set and Cajun Craze Classic Stampin’ Pad. Use the Greenery Embossing Folder to texture emboss the 3-3/4″ x 1-1/4″ Mint Macaron strip.   Cut 3 equal pieces of Linen Thread and tie into a small bow to embellish the sentiment label.

NOTE: The next ZOOM card class is September 21, 1:00 – 2:30 p.m. EST.  Drop me an email if you’d like to attend and I’ll send you the details.  

A list of the Project Materials is at the bottom of this post.  You can place your order by clicking on the products you wish to purchase.  If desired, you may order the entire Gilded Autumn Suite Collection or the separate components used for the Falling Leaves & Acorns card.

Gilded Autumn Suite

In my last post, photos of the Gilded Autumn Suite from the August – December Mini Catalog were shared.  So for today’s post, I am sharing one of the cards I have made using products from the suite.  There’s much to like in this suite but the Gilded Autumn Designer Series Paper is absolutely gorgeous!  The elegant designs in earthy colors and papers with copper and gold foil make it difficult to decide which side of the paper you want to use.  Even better, is that some of the images can be cut using the Autumn Punch Pack.  Combine the designer series paper with the Beautiful Autumn Bundle, add the Acorn Trinkets and the Basket Weave & Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack and you’ve got lots to use for designing Fall card and projects.

For my project, I am using three designs from the Gilded Autumn Designer Series Paper.  Notice how well the different patterns blend together? The Mint Macaron, Cajun Craze and Early Espresso combine to provide a beautiful color scheme.

Gilded Autumn

Recreating the card:
  • Card base is Cajun Craze cut 5-1/2″ x 11″, scored at 4-1/4″ and folded.
  • The Gilded Autumn Designer Series layers are: 5-1/4″ x 4″, 5-1/4″ x 1-1/4″ and 2″ x 3-1/2″.  Add the layers to the card base using Stampin’ Seal.
  • Stamp the sentiment from the Beautiful Autumn Stamp Set onto a 3/4″ x 3″ strip of Very Vanilla cardstock using Cajun Craze Classic Stampin’ Pad.  Cut decorate ends on the sentiment label using the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch.
  • On a scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock, stamp two oak leaves using Mint Macaron Classic Stampin’ Pad and one maple leaf using Cajun Craze Classic Stampin’ Pad.  TIP: when stamping the interior of each leaf, stamp off one time onto a scrap of paper before stamping inside the outline image.
  • After stamping the leaves, use the coordinating punches from the Autumn Punch Pack to cut.
  • Add the label to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals (refer to photo for placement).  
  • Complete by embellishing with the cut leaves and adding a small bow tied using the Copper Metallic Ribbon from the Basket Weave & Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack.
  • Of course, don’t forget to embellish the envelope and the card interior!

For the next step, add the beautiful Gilded Autumn Suite of products to your “must have” order list for creating Fall projects.  You can select the entire product suite or individual products under the Project Materials section below.

Linda’s Card Class Projects

Today I am sharing two cards from Linda’s card class projects.  Linda is a member of my Playtime with Paper team.  In addition to being on my team, Linda leads her team, the Crafty Herons.  Due to COVID-19 precautions, we are temporarily offering online card classes vs the in person classes.  Participants in the classes purchase the project kits and join in via Zoom for the scheduled class.  So, last week Linda led a group of craft friends through construction of four projects.  Since I could not attend the class, Linda provided project photos.  And, I’m sharing two of the projects with you.  You’ll find the descriptions below each photo.

Ornate Garden CongratulationsCongratulations card

For the project above, the Ornate Garden Designer Series Paper provides a beautiful background.  Using the Ornate Border Dies, the designer series paper is cut before adding it to the Thick Whisper White cardstock base.  Next, cut a strip of Whisper White cardstock using the dies.  It overlays the designer series paper’s cut edge. Use the three flower dies in the set to also cut the flowers from Rococo Rose cardstock.  Then, add some shimmer to the flowers with the Clear Wink of Stella.  When dry, use Mini Glue Dots to add the flowers along the border.  The  sentiment is from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set.  Stamp “Congratulations” onto the lower portion of the card using Rococo Rose Classic Stampin’ Pad.  Gilded Gems embellish the centers of each flower.  For that little extra touch, emboss the envelope flap using the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.

Forever Fern Happy Birthday
Forever Fern Birthday Card

To the Thick Whisper White cardstock base, add a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Pretty Peacock cardstock.  Next, add one of the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper rectangles to the Pretty Peacock layer.  Add a 1-1/4″ x 4″ strip of the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper to the card front (referring to photo for approximate placement).  On a scrap of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set using Pretty Peacock Classic Stampin’ Pad.  Cut the circle using either a 2″ Circle Punch or one of the Layering Circle Dies (keep the sentiment toward the top of the circle).  Select a variety of leaf dies from the Forever Flourishing dies and cut a piece of Just Jade cardstock, Old Olive cardstock and Soft Seafoam cardstock.  Layer the leaves and attach to one another using Mini Glue Dots.  Next, add a Gold Hoop Embellishment to the card and add the sentiment label in the center of the hoop using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Then, attach the layer of leaves to the lower portion of the sentiment label with adhesive.  Embellish the stem on the leaves with the gold metallic trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack.  

Thank you to Linda for the photos!  I am having fun completing her four class projects.

July 3D Tutorial Bundle & Bonus Days!

 

WOW! Can you believe it’s already July? There is lots happening this month.  To start the month, we have the July 3D Tutorial Bundle!  In addition to the tutorial bundle, the team is featuring a blog hop!  (links at bottom of blog post)  Even better, we’re each sharing a second project created using the same products to coordinate with our tutorial project.  This month, the team is featuring products from the Playful Pets Suite.  This product suite will have you and pet lover friends howling or purring with delight!  

Remember, the projects designed for the 3D tutorial bundle aren’t available elsewhere online.  Therefore, you’ll receive EXCLUSIVE projects in the tutorial bundle.  In addition, both Imperial and Metric measurements are included for each project.

Now for a Sneak Peek of the July 3D projects…

You’ll love the cute 3D project designs!

For my coordinating project, I have a cute gift card holder design for you.  

Playful Pets Gift Card

And here’s the card interior:

Playful Pets Gift Card Interior

Gift Card Details:
  • Refer to the photo below for cutting and scoring to create the gift card holder.  Real Red cardstock is used for the base.

Cutting & Scoring for the Playful Pets Gift Card Holder

 

  • In addition, cut the following: 
    • Real Red cardstock: 2-3/4″ x 4-1/4″ (calling it horizontal panel)
    • Playful Pets Designer Series Paper (DSP): 2 coordinating pieces each 2-1/2″ x 4″; strip for interior 3/4″ x 4″; select the 2 dogs from the DSP and fussy cut
    • Whisper White cardstock: 4″ x 5-1/4″
  • Referring to the photos, cut, score and fold the gift card base.  Add a strong adhesive such as Tear & Tape along the sides of the panel with 1/2 circle.  To create the gift card pocket, fold the panel along the score line toward the 5-1/2″ score line.  
  • Next, attach the coordinating Playful Pets Designer Series Paper pieces to the front of the card, to the 2-3/4″ x 4-1/4″ horizontal Real Red cardstock panel and to the interior pocket of the card.  The Stampin’ Seal adhesive is great for this!
For the gift card interior:
  • On the Whisper White cardstock, stamp the dog bowl on the lower right corner of the cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  Color the bowl with the Real Red Dark Stampin’ Blends.  Then, add the fussy cut dog to the left corner of the Whisper White cardstock and use the Stampin’ Seal to add the Whisper White panel to the gift card interior. I love the expression on the dog’s face!
For the card front:
  • Cut a 16″ piece of the black & white baker’s twine from the Playful Pets Trim Combo pack.  Wrap the twine around the card so it can be used to tie the card closed on the right side.  Now, position the horizontal Real Red cardstock panel so that it is centered and aligns evenly with the right side of the gift card base.  Carefully attach to the card ensuring you adhere the baker’s twine and that the adhesive is only on the front portion.  If it extends past the folded gift card portion, it will become attached to the card interior. Optional: add a small amount of liquid glue to the baker’s twine and attach to the back of the horizontal Real Red panel – keep open until it dries.
  • Select the sentiment from the Pampered Pets Stamp Set.  Stamp onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  Next, cut the shape using the Tasteful Labels Dies.
  • Finish the front of the horizontal Real Red panel by adding the sentiment label using Stampin’ Seal.  Then, add the fussy cut dog using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • For the final touch, add a Playful Pets Trinket to the dog’s paw. Tie the twine into a bow to close the gift card.
  • Optional: Add a piece of the Playful Pets Designer Series Paper to the flap on the envelope.

Have fun creating with the Playful Pets Suite Collection!  The variety of dogs and cats offer multiple creative options for pet lovers.
