Night and Day for TGIFC142 and JUGS422!

 
 
 
Hello Everyone!

Today's Card is for a Sketch Challenge!
for
TGIFC #142
 
 
Here is the Challenge!
 

 
 
 
 
Also the Challenge
for
JUGS #422
 
 
 
 

Here is my Card!
 

 

 
It doesn't show well in the photograph
 I took 5 pictures!
This was the best of all photos!
I used the Layered Leaves Dynamic TIEF
(Textured Impressions Embossing Folder)
for this Card!
Dynamic means it gives a 3D effect!
 
 
 
 
Here is the inside of my Card!

 
 


 
I mimicked the leaves on the Petal Passion DSP
with the leaves stamp from the Petal Palette Stamp Set!
 



 
 
I stamped an envelope to match this Card!


 
 

 
I LOVE the leaves!
 I tend to gravitate
towards 'leaves' of all kinds!
 
 
Here are the Stock and Measures:
Unless noted, all items are from Stampin'Up!
 
Cardstock:
Whisper White THICK-card base, 5 1/2" X 8 1/2"
scored @ 4 1/4", folded in half
Basic Black-embossed panel, 4" X 5 1/4"
Whisper White-strip with vertical greeting 3/4" X 3 1/2"

2 colored with a Black Sharpie on the DSP side
 
 
Here is my Card again!
 
 
 
I DO like leaves!
 
 
 
 
 
On An Even Brighter Note!
 
 
Background:
 
At First...



I wasn't sure which way to go on this Card.
I had a class last Wednesday, one of the ladies
attending is a 'new-comer' to Stamping!
She wanted to know about Embossing!
I explained to her that there are
2 different kinds of Embossing:
Heat Embossing and Impression Embossing!
 
The whole Picture:
 
Our next Class in February, we will be Heat Embossing!
with GOLD Stampin' Emboss Powder!
(A Valentine Card!)
I am going to take in samples of Impression Embossing.
This Card will go to that Class!
I will have other
 Cardstock and Card examples too!
 
This Class was my First Class this year!
We had 4 ladies attending,
a few had other plans that night, but are
interested in other classes!
If all show up at once...I will have 10 Ladies!
I will be holding Classes the First Wednesday's
of each Month!
(exception is July, second Wednesday!)
 
I will have a project for each class for the Ladies to Create!
This is my First Venture in booking a year's worth of classes!
I am excited about sharing this 'Passion' I have, with others!
Here's to 2018! For a good year of Stamping!
 
I will share the Card Projects
each month, that the Group works on!
 
Until the next Post...Blessings and Love to you ALL!

I used the DSP  with the 'Fruit' printed sides
I cut them in half...
they come in 6" X 6" squares!
Now, I have 3" X 6" rectangles!
I cut the 6 inches down to 5 1/4".
Now, they are to 3" X 5 1/4"!
I cut matching mats from
Cardstock at 3 1/4" X 5 3/8".
I adhered the DSP to the mat and
set aside...I picked a contrasting color from
the DSP to make the card bases
5 1/2" X 8 1/2" scored @ 4 1/4"
 folded in half on the score line!
I adhered the matted DSP to the Card front.
Made the greeting banners and mats to match!
Whisper White banner 1" X 3"
Mats for banners 1 1/4" X 3 1/4"
I made them ALL the Cards, Birthday Cards!
(My stash is now growing again!)
I used the greeting from the Fruit Basket stamp set.
The little Fruits are also from the Fruit Basket stamp set!
(The bowl too!)
The stamp set is a 2-step Stamp Set!
The inside sentiments are from a retired Stamp Set
called Party With Cake.
I am showing the inside for the little cute fruits!
Even though they are all the same!

Here are my results!
