Welcome To The Pals “Favorite Season” Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Pals’ Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects for “My Favorite Season”  – showcasing our favorite stamps and supplies for our holiday project.  You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

It’s easy to see, I chose Christmas for “my favorite season,” but this card has special dimension. Follow along to see how I made it.

Framed Christmas tree

 

I began by building a frame with Toile Tidings Designer Paper. First, I used the largest Rectangle Stitched Die to cut the green, leafy print. Second, I cut an identical piece of Thick Very Vanilla Cardstock. Third, I glued the two together, and used a Beautiful Boughs Die to cut a hole, making a frame. Fourth, I attached Adhesive Foam Strips to the frame’s back, so it could be lifted on the Thick Very Vanilla card base. 

 

Next, I found a beautiful tree in my stash of unused pieces for my focal point. The tree is from the Winter Woods Stamp Set, and cut with a die from In the Woods. I remember using several shades of green; probably Shaded Spruce, Garden Green and Mint Macaron. I used regular Dimensionals to lift the tree from the card front.

TIP: The tree is lower than the frame, because Foam Adhesive Strips are double the thickness of regular Dimensionals.

 

“Merry” is from the Merry Christmas Die Set, which I cut from Real Red Cardstock, and layered for thickness. “Christmas” is from the Merry Christmas To All Stamp Set, stamped in Real Red Ink on Thick Very Vanilla Cardstock, and cut with a Merry Christmas Die.

The Beautiful Boughs Die Set provided the pinecones. I cut two solid shapes from Crumb Cake Cardstock, and two open shapes from Soft Suede Cardstock, and glued the two together. A bow of Linen Thread was glued to the top of the pinecones, and my card was complete.

Welcome To The Pals Blog Hop

 

 

Welcome to the Pals’ Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects for “It’s the Sentiment That Counts”  – showcasing new or favorite sentiments as the focal point of their project.  You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Today’s Pal’s Blog Hop is occurring on a significant day in our history, 9/11. Thinking of the brave men and women who selflessly gave their lives for others, I feel grateful. 

By Su Mohr for Pals Sept Blog Hop; Click READ or VISIT to go to my blog for details! Featuring: Hand-Lettered Prose Dies, Beautiful Bough Dies, Pinewood Planks embossing, Foil Sheets Layering Circles, Pressed Petals DSP; #grateful, #9/11 #thanksgivingcards #thankyoucards #sentiments #focalpoints #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardmaking

Grateful

 

The first thing I did was use the Hand-Lettered Prose dies to cut the word “grateful” from wood textured, Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper. Then, I layered each letter for thickness, and placed them on a 5 1/4″ X 4″ piece of Whisper White Cardstock to make sure it fit. Whew! Not a spec to spare. I embossed this layer with the Pinewood Planks embossing folder to stick with the rustic feel.

 

Next, I took a cue from this month’s banner, and made a wreath. I began by using two Layering Circles Dies to make a round frame for the wreath. By using Thick Whisper White Cardstock, it blended with the background. I used Champagne, Gold, and Silver Foil for the foliage, and Copper Foil for the pinecones. I cut two boughs of each color, and two pinecones, with dies from the Beautiful Boughs die set.

 

After alternating, and carefully gluing the boughs to the frame, I lifted the wreath on Dimensionals, along with the letters, g-r-a-t-e-f-u-l.

The final touch was a Sparkle Glimmer spring, cut with a Frosted Bouquet die.

Sip Sip Hooray Pals August Blog Hop

 

Welcome to the Pals’ August Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects for “Special Occasions”  –  cards or projects that adds beauty to the special occasions we all love to make cards for! You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

 

Special occasions often involve celebrating with a “toast.” I’m excited to share with you the new Sip Sip Hooray stamp set with coordinating dies; appropriate for weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, the New Year, you name it.

By Su Mohr for Pals August Blog Hop; Click READ or VISIT to go to my blog for details! Featuring: Sip Sip Hooray stamp set, Sip & Celebrate die set, Well Written Dies, Mercury Glass Designer Acetate, Noble Peacock Foil, Iridescent Sequins; #toast #i'lldrinktothat #sipsiphooray #celebrationcards #specialoccasioncards #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #champagne

Sip Sip Hooray

 

I began with the champagne flutes, and excitedly used a Sip & Celebrate Die to cut into the Mercury Glass Acetate. I just received this new product in my 2019 Holiday pre-order, and couldn’t wait to play with it!  It really looks like glass, and it’s wonderful the way it allows color to show through it.

After experimenting with several backings, I decided on a piece of Noble Peacock Foil. I used the same die to cut more flutes, glued the acetate and foil together, and placed my completed champagne flutes on Dimensionals.

TIP: Dot glue on the solid areas of the acetate, so it doesn’t show.

 

The background is Coastal Cabana Cardstock, layered on Bermuda Bay Cardstock, layered on a Thick Whisper White card base.

The top layer was given some fun bubbles with a die in the Sip & Celebrate Die Set. More bubbles were made with Iridescent Sequins.

 

 “Sip Sip” is from the Sip Sip Hooray Stamp Set, stamped in Bermuda Bay Ink. The stamp set has “hooray” but I used the word from the Well Written Die Set, cutting it from Thick Whisper White Cardstock.
