Mix the Media - Shaped Wood Planks - USA

When I received a box with the BRAND NEW Mix the Media shaped wood pieces - Star, Heart, Chicken Wire Frame and USA, I grabbed the USA, nails, my hammer and some embroidery floss and started to play!

FullSizeRender_2
Start by nailing around the border. My nails were about .75"-1" apart. Make sure you keep the nail from the very edge of the wood plank. You could nail off part of Texas or Florida if you aren't careful.

FullSizeRender
Nail a heart design where ever you like in the middle. Mine is over Indiana.

FullSizeRender_3
Start stringing from the heart to the nails on the outside border. I used 3 skeins of white embroidery floss.

FullSizeRender_1
That little red heart tack comes with the USA wood plank. It's so cute! Just pop that red heart where ever your heart calls home!

The best news... all the shaped wood pieces are SHIPPING NOW! Start looking for them at your favorite stores.

Feel Better Soon card by designer Patty Folchert

A great go to card for get well wishes. So fun to create your own background using one Hampton Art clear stamp set and four different ink colors.


Fell Better Soon card by Patty Folchert

Using three different stamps from the same set I was able to create the background, a great way to stretch your sets. You need to start with the lightest ink color and then build your floral background. So I began with the yellow ink on the flower stamp, then next the green ink. I switched to the other flower stamp with orange ink and last I added the leaves in a different shade of green. This technique can be used for any color combination you need, great for personalizing an event.


Stamp the sentiment in brown ink onto one of the kraft tags then add the flower stamped in orange ink. Last I matted the tag and set it flush to the edge of the card. I love the fall color combo.

So when I have a friend that is under the weather I have a cheery card to brighten their day. Give it a try and I would love to see your results.
Get Well Bouquets,
Patty Folchert

Encouragement cards by designer Gretchen McElveen

Hi there! I’ve got a couple cards to share with you today. I’ve got some friends going through rough patches right now and I wanted to give them something positive and encouraging. I used the “Saffron Yellow Pepper Soup” line from Jillibean Soup to make a couple of cards to {hopefully} make them smile. Who doesn’t love a handmade card!?

When It Rains card by Gretchen McElveen
Supplies:
Jillibean Soup Saffron Yellow Pepper Soup Coordinating Paper
Jillibean Soup Saffron Yellow Pepper Soup Coordinating Label Stickers
Jillibean Soup Saffron Yellow Pepper Soup Pea Pod Parts
Jillibean Soup Everyday Notebook Tags

I started with kraft cardstock as the base of each card. Then I used the patterned paper, stickers, and die cuts from “Saffron Yellow Pepper Soup” as the background paper and embellishments. For the sentiment on each card, I used the “Everyday” notebook tags. Have you seen these?! There are 35 tags in a pack and there are so many cute sayings to choose from! Perfect for cards! I added a brad to the hole in each tag. Then I used foam adhesive to adhere the tags and some of the die cuts to give the cards some dimension.  Easy enough, right??!  And hopefully they will make my friends smile!
Thanks for looking! Have a great day!

Best Buddies card by designer Patty Folchert

What could be cuter than a calico cat card? Not much, check out this card made with the brand new Jillibean Soup Fur Fusion paper and Pea Pods overlapping a clear stamp set word bubble background.

Best Buddies card by Patty Folchert

A real quick and easy card using black ink and the word bubble stamp I stamped the background. It helps to use a measurement mat behind your card and a acrylic block with lines on it to align the images. Next I cut border strips for the sides and sewed them on. Last I added the sweet Pea Pod cut-outs from the new Fur Fusion collection as shown.


Best Buddies deserve cute cards, you don’t even have to tell them how easy it was to make. It will be our little secret! ;)

Best Buddies,
Patty Folchert

Love You Bunches card by designer Patty Folchert

A sweet puppy and a loving sentiment make this card seriously irresistible. Yes, that is correct you spot brand new Jillibean Soup- Fur Fusion & Alphabet Soup II papers paired up with a new Hampton Art wood block stamp.

Love You Bunches card by Patty Folchert

I started by adding the super cute bicycle paper from the new Alphabet Soup II to the card base. Then I layered on another sheet from that collection in teal. On top of that I added the primer paper from that collection with the sentiment stamped in brown ink. Next I layered on a mini placemat with a green heart paper strip behind the text to make it stand out. Then I stitched it together with white thread on my sewing machine.


Last I added the crazy cute Pea Pod accents with 3D foam dots from the new Fur Fusion collection, a puppy, half circle and green heart. Add a sweet baker’s twine bow for the puppy dog if you like. Then for some extra zing I added the new adhesive sequins in teal plum.
This adorable card is sure to make someone smile, I just can’t get enough of these cute critters.
Puppy Love,

Patty Folchert

Happy Fall Y'All frame by designer Patty Folchert

Fall is my favorite season and I love to add to my fall home décor collection, how about you? Here is a fall themed frame dressed up with KI Memories paper tape, Jillibean Soup papers and clear stamp sets.


Happy Fall Y'All frame by Patty Folchert

So I started by measuring the inside of the frame to determine how big to make the banner pieces. Then I cut all the banner pieces out, next I stamped out the message using the alphabet stamp & stencil set. Then I layered them together with 3D foam dots and adhered them to the burlap panel as shown. You could use glue dots of 3D foam dots. Then I grabbed the paper tape and adhered the flower border cutting the corners diagonally to match the frame, it was actually so easy to do.


Then I stamped a couple of the cute owls in brown ink onto the weathered wood paper and fussy cut out. Then to give them some dimension I added the buttons with yellow embroidery floss. Then I attached them with 3 stacked 3D foam dots so they would match up with the frame. I was finished but it needed something else, the letters needed colored in with the rust color marker. Then I had to add the apostrophe too the Y’all. That did it; I was satisfied with it after that.


And just like that you have a sweet fall home décor piece or gift.
Happy Fall Y’all,
Patty Folchert
