Very Versallies for my November, 2019 classes
I offered this card at my November, 2019 classes.  Everyone who attended got to make eight cards, two of each design. (See earlier posts for the other three designs).  I saw this card on Mary Fish's blog, and you can see her card Here, post of July 15, 2019.   In addition, Mary has a step-by-step tutorial on how to make the Stitched Nested Label into a smaller size.  
It is my pleasure to share the recipe of my version with you and if you have any questions, please let me know.
Recipe:
  • The base is an 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 piece of Terracotta Tile, scored at 4 1/4.
  • The Blueberry Bushel layer is 5 1/4 x 4 and is dry embossed with the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder.
  • The next Terracotta Tile layer is 4 5/8 x 3 3/8 and is the base for the 4 1/2 x 3 1/4 Very Vanilla on which the images are stamped with Pear Pizzazz and Blueberry Bushel. 
  • The piece of Pear Pizzazz is 4 5/8 x 1, and is covered with a piece of the Blueberry Bushel 1/8" Grosgrain Ribbon.
  • The Blueberry Bushel image is stamped on a shortened Stitched Nested Die.
  • The words are stamped with Terracotta Tile ink and cut out with a Layering Oval Die.
  • Two Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots are added, just because.
  • All done, and remember to decorate your envelope.

Greatest Part of Christmas and Nature's Roots Dies for my November, 2019 classes

Cindy Lee was the inspiration for this card.  I sometimes don't think "outside the box", well, I hardly ever think "outside the box", so I was happily surprised when I saw where Cindy used the Nature's Roots Dies to make this poinsettia.  You can see Cindy's card Here, post of 11/2/2019.
Recipe:
  • The base is an 11 x 4 1/4 piece of Real Red, scored at 5 1/2.
  • The Crushed Curry layer is 5 3/8 x 4 1/8.
  • The Whisper White layer is 5 1/4 x 4, and Christmas Greetings is stamped with Real Red ink and a stamp from the host set, The Greatest Part of Christmas.  Then it is dry embossed with the Subtle 3D embossing folder.
  • The Poinisettia is made by embossing six large leaves (from the Nature's Roots Dies) with Shaded Spruce cardstock.  Next emboss six large and five small leaves with Real Red cardstock.  I cut all the leaves with my handy-dandy Stampin' Up! Paper Snips. It is much faster than trying to line up the dies with the embossed leaves. 
  • Glue the Shaded Spruce leaves to a 1" circle, then glue the large red leaves to a 1" circle, and the five smaller red leaves to a 3/4" circle.  
  • The Shaded Spruce circle of leaves is adhered to the card with Multipurpose glue.  The large Real Red layer of leaves is adhered with dimensionals, as well as the smaller circle of red leaves.
  • Three Gold Faceted Gems are in the center of the poinsettia.
  • The Whisper White inside is stamped with Shaded Spruce ink and a stamp from Christmas Gleaming.  A Real Red Blend is used to color the berries, and Watercolor Pencils and a Blender Pen are used to color the leaves.  The words are stamped with Real Red ink.
  • All done, and remember to decorate your envelope.

Beauty & Joy for my November, 2019 classes
I used the Beauty & Joy stamp set by Stampin' Up! for this card.  You can find this 13 piece set on page 51 of the 2019 Holiday Mini, and it's just $16.00.  It can be used for lots of occasions, and is a great set to have on hand.  This beauty was posted on Pinterest by Leena Girsa, and you can see her card Here, post of 9/30/2019.
Recipe:
  • The base is an 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 piece of Cajun Craze, scored at 4 1/4.
  • The Early Espresso layer is 5 3/8 x 4 1/8.
  • The Crumb Cake layer is 5 1/4 x 4, and is dry embossed with the Pinewood Planks 3D embossing folder.
  • The narrow piece of Cajun Craze is 4 7/8 x 1 5/8, and is dry embossed with the Basket Weave 3D embossing folder.  Then it is adhered with Multipurpose Liquid Glue to a 5 x 1 3/4 piece of Early Espresso.
  • The 3 3/4 x 2 1/2 piece of Early Espresso is the base for the 3 5/8 x 2 1/4 Very Vanilla that is cut out with the Stitched Rectangle Dies.
  • The flower pot and tree trunk are stamped with Early Espresso ink.
  • To get the multicolored tree, ink up a Sponge Dauber with Cajun Craze ink, and tap, tap, tap the stamp.  Next do the same with Crushed Curry ink, and a different sponge dauber.  Because the ink tends to become dry (when not stamped right away), you will need to moisten the stamp.  So give the stamp the "breath of life", which means to huff & puff on the stamp, (not like the Big Bad Wolf, though), then stamp on the Very Vanilla cardstock. 
  • The cherries are stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink.
  • The Crushed Curry leaf is embossed and cut out with a die from the Gathered Leaves dies.
  • The words on the 3 x 5/8 piece of Crumb Cake are stamped with Early Espresso ink, and popped up with Mini Dimensionals. 
  • The Cajun Craze bakers twine is from the Come to Gather Ribbon combo pack and is wrapped around three times, and tied with a bow.
  • All done, and remember to decorate your envelope.
