Techniques — Faux Mason Jar & Embossed Landscape

Create dimension on your Adirondacks Greetings to Go cards with these fun techniques!

Techniques G2G #clubscrap

As the Adirondacks Greetings to Go Guest Artist, I enjoyed playing with embossing folders and up-cycled packaging material to add interest to my cards.

Faux Mason Jar and Embossed Landscape Techniques:

Faux Mason Jar

Stamp the large mason jar from the Art Nouveau set with Permanent Black Ink onto clear plastic packaging material. Allow the image to dry completely and fussy cut with scissors.

Next, stamp the jar image onto Adirondacks Ivory and Sunken Treasures Blue Translucent papers. Trim to mimic liquid in the jar.

Cut a 1″ slit through the translucent paper with a craft knife, about 1/4″ from the top edge, to make a spot for the flower stems.

Insert flower stems through the slit. Apply glue to the back of the stems and along the stamped lines of the jar with Bookbinding Glue dispensed from a Needle-tipped Applicator. Adhere to the Ivory layer.

Finally, adhere the plastic layer to the front to complete the jar.

Embossed Landscape

Open the Sizzix embossing folder and add color to the raised tops of the trees with Spruce Ink directly from the pad. *It may be necessary to wipe away any ink that was transferred from the pad onto the background (lower) areas of the folder with a damp paper towel or cloth.

Add color to the tree trunks with the brush tip of a brown Aquarelle marker.

Quickly lay a piece of Ivory paper onto the colored embossing folder while the inks are still wet. Run it through an embossing machine to transfer the color from the folder to the paper in the debossed areas.

Add Ash ink to the mountain range image from the Jumbo UM set. Stamp directly over the de-bossed tree tops, being careful not to apply too much pressure. (Too much pressure may crush the embossed areas of the paper, getting ink into the de-bossed trees.)

Apply more color to the landscapes with Cracked Pistachio (grass) and Broken China (sky) Distress Oxide and Vintage Photo (ground) Distress inks.

Pinwheel Card Steps
  1. Stamp and color the mason jar from the Adirondacks Art Nouveau UM sheet.

9. Trim a 4.5×6.5″ card panel from the 8.5×11 Kraft Print. Adhere the jar near the bottom of the panel. Trim 1/8″ strips of Blue for the pinwheel straws and slide beneath the rim of the jar. Punch flowers and adhere to the center of each pinwheel.

Embellish the pinwheels with Metallic Dot Stickers.

Triple Easel Video Tutorial and Adirondacks Club Stamp Cards

Make three triple easel cards and seven more fun cards with the Adirondacks Club Stamp kit. It’s going to be an adventure!

Club Stamp Adirondacks Card Kit with Triple Easel Card Tutorial #clubscrap #handmade #cardmaking

First, make sure you’re a Club Stamp member and wait patiently for your kit to arrive. Then, download the instructions by clicking on the link below. Trim and score the twelve papers carefully.

Adirondacks Club Stamp Instructions

SET A

Club Stamp Adirondacks Card Kit with Triple Easel Card Tutorial #clubscrap #handmade #cardmaking

Round the outside upper corners of the pocket card with a Corner Rounder on the 1/2″ setting. Stamp the top edge of the inside folio with the mountain range image.

Club Stamp Adirondacks Card Kit with Triple Easel Card Tutorial #clubscrap #handmade #cardmaking

Stamp the upper right corner of a 4×5.25″ Ivory panel with a sentiment (“Happy birthday to you.” is from the Adirondacks UM Greeting sheet.) Punch a hole in the top, add an eyelet from your stash and add ribbon to the handmade tag. The second pocket could be used for cash or a gift card.

Club Stamp Adirondacks Card Kit with Triple Easel Card Tutorial #clubscrap #handmade #cardmaking

The original Jumbo stamp sheet includes three arrows in a set. Trim one of the arrows from the set and stamp onto the strip. Adhere the bronze arrow charm with CS® Bookbinding Glue.

TIP: When separating UM stamp images, cut them apart at a unique angle or shape, sort of like a puzzle piece. Easily fit the two pieces back together when you want to stamp them in their original grouping.

SET B – TRIPLE EASEL CARDS

Club Stamp Adirondacks Card Kit #clubscrap #handmade #cardmaking

Tear away the bottom edge of two narrow scraps and adhere to the left edge of a Mint card base stamped with the trail map. Thread a jute fiber onto the bronze arrow and tie ends in a knot. Glue the arrow and jute knot onto the Blue strip.

Club Stamp Adirondacks Card Kit #clubscrap #handmade #cardmaking

If you want to make another batch of triple easel cards and “quadrant” cards, you’ll need two sheets each of three colors from your stash.  Follow the trimming instructions for step five and six included in this month’s download, and decorate as you wish!

Thanks for joining me on another cardmaking adventure!

Cards piling up? How to disburse your stash.

Got a stash of cards on your hands? If you’re a Club Stamp or Greetings to Go member, you may find great joy in creating handmade cards but not enough people to send them to.

Organizing your card stash #clubscrap

In an age where a message on Facebook is the only birthday greeting some will receive, a card in the mail is even more meaningful.

Steps to Greeting Card Management

Keep a Calendar

Manage special occasions on a computer as annual recurring events, or keep a paper “perpetual” calendar. Consult the list of events prior to the beginning of each month. If Facebook alerts you about a birthday or anniversary of someone dear to you, add their name to the calendar. (This has been the most effective way to grow my card list!)

Sort Cards

First, organize your card stash into categories for various occasions. I used the following categories to cover the bases: birthday (him), birthday (her), birthday (juvenile), anniversary, thank you, get well, thinking of you, miss you, sympathy, holiday, congratulations, baby, blank, and love. I store them in a sturdy acrylic box.

Acrylic Box for organizing greeting card stash #clubscrap

Here is one of my filled boxes.

Organizing your stash of cards #clubscrap

Prep Cards to Send

Next, review the list of a month’s occasions and select a card for each individual. Have your address book handy (mine is in “contacts” on my computer), a roll of stamps, return address labels, PostIt Notes, a favorite pen, and a journaling stencil if you tend to write “downhill”.

Journaling and Address Writing Stencil #clubscrap

Add a handwritten greeting to the inside of the card, address the envelope, and add postage. Next, consult a calendar to calculate the appropriate mailing date. Be sure to consider weekends, holidays and distance when choosing the date. Note the mail date on a PostIt and add to the envelope.

Finally, sort the cards in order by mail date, and keep them in a visible place so you don’t forget to mail them. (I’d like to thank our very own Deb K. for being my “mail angel” throughout the month!)

If you still have too many cards in your stash, consider donating them to organizations who have a need. (Cards from the store are expensive!) Card Care Connection is a nonprofit accepting cards to provide encouragement to those facing cancer. Cards for Hospitalized Kids aims to provide hope, joy, and magic to children facing serious health issues. Lastly, check with your local church, military, or other organizations who may have a need for all-occasion cards, and don’t forget to join our monthly birthday swap in the forum!

Of course, there is no right or wrong way to do this . . . the most important part is finding the card de-stashing method that works best for you!

Embossed Vellum and Paper Cherry Blossoms

Create a lovely, soft textured background for any card with embossed vellum and your favorite set of brush tipped markers.

Vellum, Embossing, Club Scrap, Cherry Blossoms

I was lucky enough to receive some papers from the vintage 2001 Sunken Treasure kit and have been hoarding saving them for just the right time. Among the papers were several sheets of vellum in green, teal, and a white print. Thanks to Loree Karan’s new Past and Present Challenge on the Club Scrap Forum I now have the perfect excuse to work with them.

#clubscrap #paperflowers #vellum #embossing

Steps to Create the Card

Dry emboss the Sunken Treasure green vellum with the Sizzix Texture Fades Floral folder.

Add color to the back (de-bossed side) of the panel with Aquarelle Brush set markers in Lt. Pink, Fuschia and Lt. Green.

Vellum, Embossing, Club Scrap, Embossing Folder, Sizzix

Flip the panel and adhere to a folded 5.5×8.5″ Sunken Treasure White card base.

Embossing, Vellum, Club Scrap, Sizzix, Embossing Folder, Aquarelle Markers

Embellish with punched flowers, sequins, and the beautiful satin ribbon included in the Cherry Blossoms fiber pack.

Cherry Blossoms, EK Success Punch, sequins, Paper Flowers, Club Scrap

To create the details on the flowers, add Aquarelle Fuschia fine tip lines radiating from the middle of each flower. Add black dots to the ends of the lines with a fine-tipped journaling pen. Attach the sequins to the centers with Bookbinding Glue dispensed from a Needle-tipped Applicator.

Stamp the Jumbo UM sentiment onto a Cherry Blossoms Pink panel with Permanent Jet Black Ink.  Add the single blossom image with a second generation stamping technique to create a muted look.
