INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Cut your Delightful Dijon card stock at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score and fold at 4-1/4″.
2.  Cut your Whisper White card stock at 3-3/4″ x 5-1/2″.
3.  Cut your Leaf Border on Whisper White card stock using the smallest Leaf Framelit.  Make a mark on the BACK side of the card stock so you can easily put your card stock leaves on correctly.  Cut the center Leaf first with the FRONT side up, then the two outside edges having the stem go the same direction.  Cut the last two leaves with the stam going the opposite direction.
4.  Stamp your small leaves using Chocolate Chip ink on Crushed Curry, Delightful Dijon, Tangerine Tango, Cajun Craze, and Cherry Cobbler card stock.  Cut out with scissors leaving about 1/8″ border around the leaf and just cutting to a point at the end of the stem.
5.  Turn your Whisper White over so the mark on the BACK side shows.  Put Tombow Glue around the first leaf cut out.  Hold up the Whisper White card stock and line up the tip of the stamped leaf with the cut out, then finish lining up the rest of the leaf and stem.  Press the edges well so the glue sticks all around the leaf edges.  Repeat with the other leaves.
6.  Stamp your sentiment in Cajun Craze ink on your Whisper White card stock.
7.  Tie some Linen Thread in a bow around the Whisper White card front.  Put some Fast Fuse or SNAIL on the back edges of the card including under the Linen Thread.      Straighten the Linen Thread.  Attach your Whisper White card front to your Delightful Dijon card base.

I hope you enjoy making your OWN Die Cut Borders using smaller Framelits.

Pyramid Pumpkin and Turkey Decorations

I was watching a video about someone making diamond shaped decorations and decided to try and make a Pumpkin and a Turkey using a Pyramid shape.  These were pretty quick and easy.
Turkey & pumpkin decorationsSUPPLIES:
Ink:  Peekaboo Peach Marker – Pumpkin
Tangerine Tango ink pad – Turkey
Basic Black Marker – Turkey
Pumpkin Card Stock:  Pumpkin Pie
Garden Green
Turkey Card Stock:  Soft Suede
Tangerine Tango
Real Red
Cherry Cobbler
Cajun Craze
Pumpkin Pie
Delightful Dijon
Daffodil Delight
Big Shot:  Pyramid Pals Framelits #140618
Flower Fair Framelits #133731 Pumpkin
Layering Circles Framelits #141705
Adhesive:  Tombow Glue

PUMPKIN INSTRUCTIONS:
NOTE:
 If you want to open the Pyramids so you can put something inside: Put a piece of tape on the inside of the tips, then after decorating, punch a 1/16″ hole about 1/8″ from the  tip of each Triangle.  Decorate the Pyramids.  Close the Pyramids by threading Baker’s Twine through the holes.  Tabs:  You can glue the Front to the Tabs, but not the Back Triangle.
1.
   Cut a piece of Pumpkin Pie card stock at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Cut two of the Pyramid shape Framelits.  Fold all score lines so both pieces are the same.
2.  Draw oval like shapes on each triangle with the Peekaboo Peach Marker.
3.  Put glue on the top side of one of the bottom squares.  Attach the other square on top making sure that the sides with the tabs are opposite each other.
4.  Cut a 1/8″ x 5-1/2″ strip of Garden Green card stock for the curly vines.  Run a bone folder over it to start it curling.  Find something round and narrow to wrap it around and curl it.  I used one of my grandson’s metal cooking spoons with the round metal part about 1/8″ in diameter.  Curl the strip around the round piece holding the end to keep it in place.  Gently unwrap the strip so you keep the curl in.  Cut it in half  Glue both pieces to the tip so one part sticks up and the other angles across.
5.  Cut a little stem from Garden Green card stock.  You can cut a Garden Green leaf from the Flower Fair Framelits or just cut it with scissors.  Glue the stem on top of the pyramid tip and over the curly vines.  Glue the leaf to the stem.

TURKEY INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Cut a piece of Soft Suede
card stock at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Cut two of the Pyramid shape Framelits.  Fold all score lines so both pieces are the same.
2.  Choose one of the Triangle sides without tabs to be the Turkey front.  Cut 3 Scallop Circles from Soft Suede card stock.  Cut the circles in half.  Sponge the scallops with Tangerine Tango ink.  Layer and Glue the circles together.  Glue to the Front Triangle.  Trim off the excess.
3.  Cut a Beak from Tangerine Tango card stock.  Cut two “Bunny Ears” of each color:  Daffodil Delight, Delightful Dijoh, Pumpkin Pie, Tangerine Tango, Cajun Craze, and Cherry Cobbler.  Hand cut the two Real Red piece to make the Wattle and the Comb.
4.  Glue the Wattle onto the back of the lower Beak.  Glue the bottom of the Beak to the top of the Scallop Circles.  Draw the Eyes with Basic Black Marker.  Gle the Comb above the eyes.
5.  Put Glue on the two tabs that attach to the Front Triangle.  Repeat with the tabs for the Back Triangle.
6.  Decide what color order to put your feathers in.  Start with the center two and glue them to the back so they stick up high enough to make you happy.  Work your way outward on both sides glueing all the bottom tips on top of the first two pieces.
7.  You are done.  Admire your cute Turkey.

Happy Thanksgiving Crafting!

INSTRUCTIONS:
Watch This Video for Basic Baker’s Box instructions.
1.  Cut your Baker’s Box Thinlit twice from Crumb Cake card stock cut at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Fold all score lines so each piece looks the same.
~You can stamp the Hardwood image in Chocolate Chip ink either before you cut out your Baker’s Box pieces or after you have cut it out.  I did it after, but it would probably be easier if you stamped before you cut them out.
~Before. Ink up your Hardwood stamp and lay Rubber side up.  Lay your card stock on top of the inked stamp.  Use a Clear Stamp Block and rub it over all the card stock to transfer the ink.  Remove card stock.  Repeat with the second piece.
~After:  Fold the side score lines and do one side at a time.  Lay one folded side of your cut Baker’s Box piece on top of the inked stamp, as above and rub with a Clear Stamp Block.  Repeat for the other side and the other cut piece.
2. Add your Tear & Tape to the side tabs and the bottom flaps.
~~Side Flaps (smaller):  With the outside facing up, put Tear & Tape on the outside edge and the bottom on both pieces.
~~Front and Back Flaps (larger with V in the center. I leave this part flat):
~~~Front: Put Tear & Tape on the INSIDE of both sides of the V.
~~~Back:  Put Tear & Tape on the OUTSIDE of both sides of the V.
3. Cut:
~Cut two Pine Cones from Chocolate Chip card stock.  Angle the two Pine Cones together the way you want and attach them together with Glue Dots.  Tie a bow with the Gold Baker’s Twine.
~Cut 2 small Pine Branches and 1 Medium Pine Branch from Garden Green card stock.
4.  Assemble your Box:  Attach the side Tabs.  Now for the bottom flaps:  sides first, then the Back Flap, and the Front Flap is last.
5.  Decorate:
~Choose the front of your Box.  Attach the Medium Pine Branch about 1″ above the center score line on the box front with a Glue Dot.  Attach the other two Pine Branches on top of the first one with Glue Dots.  Attach the Pine Cones with 2-3 Glue Dots on top of where the Pine Branches meet.
~Tie closed with Gold Ribbon.

Thoughtful Branches Four Seasons Card

I have been wanting to make a Four Seasons card with the Thoughtful Branches Bundle.  I got this Thoughtful Branches Bundle idea from Daniela Astor.  As usual I tweaked it and made it my own.  It took me about 1 hour to make this card, but it can be displayed all year long.  Yes, it fits in a medium Stampin’ Up! envelope so you can mail it!

~Cut 7 apples from Real Red card stock.
2.  Stamp your Season names on the Soft Sky card stock about 1/4″ from the bottom (or top).  It is easy to center your stamping with the Photopolymer stamps.

3.  Attach your Soft Sky pieces to your card base in the coordinating sections.
4.  Spring.  Attach a Soft Suede Tree to the Spring section not adding glue to about 1/2″ on each side of the branches so you do not glue the card open.  😉  Attach the Garden Green stamped and cut Tree Leaves.  Cut 5 “flowers” from the Daffodil Delight Stamped and cut Tree leaves.  Glue The Tree Leaves on not adding glue to the 1/2″ on each side.
5.  Summer.  Attach a Soft Suede Tree to the Summer section centering the trunk and not gluing about 1/4″ on each side of the branches.  Attach the Emerald Envy Tree Leaves making sure the right side is just to the left of the fold line.  Bend the card between Spring and Summer and trim off the right side of the Summer branches and Emerald Envy Tree Leaves so the fold line shows.  Now lay the card flat with the Spring Tree Leaves overlapping the Summer Tree Leaves.  Trim more if necessary to have your card lay flat.
6.  Autumn.  Glue your Always Artichoke, Delightful Dijon, and Cajun Craze Tree Leaves together as shown.  Glue to Early Espresso Tree.  Now Glue so the Left side of the Tree Leaves almost touch the fold on the left by Summer.  Add extra single leaves beside Autumn if desired.
