INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Call Me Clover card base at 501/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″. 2. Cut your Granny Apple Green card front at 4″ x 5-1/4″. Run through the Big Shot with the Corrugated embossing folder. Attach to card base with Tombow Glue. I laid two E Stamp Blocks on top to help the glue attach the Corrugated card front to the card base. It just was not staying down by itself. I was not patient enough to hold it down with my hands. 3. Stamp your sentiment on Lemon Lime Twist cardstock with Call Me Clover ink. Cut it out with an Oval Stitched Shape Framelit. 4. Cut out the largest Stitched Labels Framelit from Call Me Clover cardstock. 5. Layer the sentiment and the Label with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Attach to card front with Tombow Glue. Again, lay the blocks over the top for a few minutes.
Your Card is finished.
TIPS: 1. Fill your Stampin’ Spritzer with Water. 2. Only give 4-5 spritzes with your Stampin’ Spritzer. 3. Use a Stampin’ Spritzer rather than a normal spray bottle. The Spray Bottle will get the cardstock too wet making it curl as it drys. This will also make it harder lay flat when you attach it to your card.
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Crumb Cake card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″.
~Put one half of your card base in the Basketweave embossing folder lining up the score-line so it will be embossed all the way to the score-line.
~Big Shot Sandwich: Big Shot Platform with Thin-Die Adapter removed (OR Multipurpose Platform with at least 1 Tab open), (Skip the bottom cutting plate), Embossing Folder with cardstock sticking out, Top Cutting Plate. Just make sure the sides of your embossing folder are lined up with the sides of your Platform. 2. Stamp your Pumpkins in Memento Black ink on Crumb Cake cardstock. Color with the Blends Markers:
~Pumpkin Pie: Back and Front Pumpkins
~Cajun Craze: middle pumpkin behind the crate
~Soft Suede: Crate
~Shaded Spruce: Squash in the crate, Leaf.
~Daffodil Delight: Apple
Cut out with two Layering Circle Framelits layered together to cut out the colored image in a circle AND make a larger frame. 3. Pumpkin Pie Square is cut at 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″. Stamp the corner images in Shaded Spruce ink in each corner. 4. DSP Rectangles.
~Striped Nature’s Poem rectangle is cut at 1-1/2″ x 4-1/4″
~Dotted Under the Mistletoe rectangle is cut at 1″ x 3-3/4″. 5. Put it all together.
~Lay out all your pieces where you want them. This is the order Kiev used:
Pumpkin Pie Square
~Use Tombow to attach the Square, Rectangles, and Circle Frame.
~Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach the stamped Circle
~Tie a Bow and attach it with Glue Dots.
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut:
~Night of Navy card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″.
~Night of Navy card front at 4″ x 5-1/4″.
~Punch one cat from Basic Black cardstock with the Cat Punch.
~Punch one Daffodil Delight Circle for the Moon. Stamp your sentiment in Night of Navy ink on your Moon. 2. Run your Night of Navy card front through the Big Shot in the Woodland embossing folder.
~Shake your Shimmer Paint bottle well.
~Use just a teeny amount of White Shimmer Paint from inside the lid to paint the Tree Trunks and Branches.
~Paint the edge of your Cat, again using just a teeny amount of paint on your brush. Be careful not to smudge the paint. 3.Add two Rhinestones to the cat for eyes. 4. Lay out your Cat and Moon where you want them. Attach the Moon with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Attach the Cat with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. Use half Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals for the Cat’s tail.
Your card is finished.
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Crushed Curry card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″. 2. Cut your Mossy Meadow card front at 4″ x 5-1/4″. Run through your Big Shot with the Swirls & Curls embossing folder.
~Paint your Swirls & Curls card front with the Shimmer Paint using a Q-Tip for each color. You can paint as much or as little as you want. The ladies at stamp class painted more than I did and it looked great! Set aside. 3. Cut your Cardstock and a matching piece of Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet for each color.
~Cajun Craze Large Leaf: 3-1/4″ x 3-1/2″
~Pumpkin Pie 3 Leaves: 3″ x 3″
~Mango Melody Long Leaf: 1-1/2″ x 4″
~Crushed Curry strip: 1″ x 4-1/4″ 4. Run over each Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet piece with your Bone Folder. This helps it to separate from the backing better. Attach your Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets to their matching sized cardstock by peeling off the word paper and sticking it to the cardstock. It doesn’t have to be perfect. 5. Cut out your Leaves and Strip using your Big Shot and the Precision Base Plate. You may still need to roll your dies through several times on each side. Check to see that the cardstock has cut completely through. The Adhesive Sheet backing may not cut all the way through even though the cardstock has cut all the way through. This is okay. 6. Lay out all your pieces on your Mossy Meadow card front. Remove the adhesive backing from each leaf and the strip and attach them to the card. Attach a piece of Copper Trim to your card on one corner if desired. Use SNAIL on the back to attach it.
Your Card is finished. 7. Optional: Emboss your Envelope Flap with the Swirls & Curls embossing folder. Watch this Video to see how easy it is.

DAISY TIPS: 1. Hold each Daisy Petal about 1/4″ from the flower center. Curl with your Bone Folder to the tip of the Petal. Do this for all Petals. If you do it right, the flower will stand up like a spider. (Luckily this isn’t creepy or crawly!) 2. The easiest way to put the flowers together is to put Glue Dots behind the center of the top flower. Light lay each of the Petals in the top flower so they are between the Petals on the bottom flower. Whe they are positioned how you like them, press the flower centers together to attach them with the Glue Dots.
