A Thankful Scene

Hello! Happy October!  Last time I posted on my blog I shared a very bright, summery card even though it was Fall. Today I have a more appropriate card to share that is fitting for the current season.

Jen Carter Thankful Night Scene 2

For this card I started with the new Framed Four Square Window die from Frantic Stamper.  I used that die to cut the blue striped patterned paper to create the windows.  I knew that I wanted to create a scene with some of the dies from the village set.  I took a piece of navy cardstock and first die cut it with the Starfall Reverse Cut die (probably one of the dies from Frantic Stamper on the top of my LOVE list, as there are just so many ways to use it!).  Then, I again used the Framed Four Square Window die to cut the navy windows.  I backed them with yellow cardstock to make the stars pop.

I positioned the navy pieces where I wanted them and then cut the moon with the Village Sky die set.  I cut two sizes of trees with the Village Trees & Shrubs die set.  These dies are perfectly sized to create scenes using this square die!  The house is from the Suburb House die collection.  You've seen me use it before, I really like it! :) I added a little puffy blue heart as an accent on the house. For the sentiment I die cut the beautiful Thankful with the Thankful word die.  I used some of the stars that were cut when I die cut the navy cardstock as accent pieces to frame the Thankful sentiment.

Here is a side angle.  You can see the dimension (and a loose corner on the bottom piece...oops!).  

Thank you for stopping by! I am thankful for YOU my blog readers too! :)

YOU Are My Sunshine

Yes, I know summer is over...sadly.  :(  But, I am looking forward to Fall and slightly cooler temps (just slightly cooler, not freezing yet, please!!!).  This card today is celebrating summer more than Fall but I am a color girl.  I like lots of it! :)  So, I couldn't resist!

Jen Carter You Are My Sunshine 1

I told you there was color involved! :)  I really love this die and I had so much fun putting together this card.  I pulled out a pack of patterned paper that had all of these bright fun, summer colors that seemed perfect to use with the new Sun Rays Quilted Card Panel die from Frantic Stamper.  

Jen Carter You Are My Sunshine 2

All of the multi-colored striped patterned pieces are popped up with dimensionals and all of the other rays are flat.  I love the depth that it gave the rays!  I used a plain colored cardstock for the circle in the middle to help break everything up.  The sentiment was cut from a piece of patterned cardstock.  I knew it had to be black with white lettering to make it pop and this sentiment fit perfectly!

And if you like this die, you have a chance to win it now through September 30th!  Here are the details:

ABC Teacher

I have an simple Fall teacher's card to share today.

Jen Carter Teacher Apple ABC 12

I started by die cutting the cute Cover Up Die: Alphabet from Lil' Inker Designs.  I LOVE this die!  It is perfect for teacher cards! 

Jen Carter Teacher Apple ABC Closeup 11

I used cork patterned paper to die cut the Teacher Word Die.   The apple is from the Apple Pieces die set that has lots of fun options in it!

This was such a simple card to make but I really like how it turned out!  

Thanks for visiting today!

Woven Card Panel Die Video

Hello!  Today I have another video to share with you.  It has been requested by quite a few customers of Frantic Stamper for a video on how to use the new Woven Card Panel die and I thought that that was a request I could help out with.

Thanks for watching!  Below is the finished product of the card I made in the video.  I'll share the details of the second card in a later post.

Jen Carter Thankful Woven 1

As I said in the video, I chose three coordinating papers from my paper pad.  This is an easy way to choose coordinating papers, since the papers in the paper pads are made to coordinate with each other.  I chose the darker green as my dominate paper and used the longest strips from this paper on my card.  The other two papers were used as my accent colors.  To easily adhere the detailed grid outline cut (not the inside pieces) I recommend using Stick It! that you can also purchase from Frantic Stamper.  You won't be sorry!  Now I just need to buy more! :)

Jen Carter Thankful Woven Closeup 1

I didn't want to cover up the front of the card and distract from the pattern that the die creates, so I went very simple and added the Thankful word die as my sentiment.  I also used Stick It! to adhere this word also.  I added a little bit of hemp cord and a little resin flower as a small accent.

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you enjoyed the video!
