Halloween Gate Fold Latch Card & CPC Project

Happy Tuesday, everyone!  I have a lot to show you today!  I've been sick for the past week, and I missed sharing a Craft Project Central Project on Sunday.  I also have a special card to share with you that I made.  First off, the card I've made.
 
This Halloween card is a special card.  It's called a Gate Fold Latch card.  I CASEd this from a card I saw on Stampin' Connection (our Stampin' Up! Demo community), and the demonstrator who I CASEd it from is Barbara Graham.  As far as I can see, she doesn't have a blog, so I don't have a link to share.  I did change it some, but the layout is the same.
 
This card is going to be one of the cards made at my Fantastic Fall Stamp Camp on  Tuesday, October 9.  To find out more about this camp, please go to my EVENTS CALENDAR.  I've included three pictures of the card (closed, partly open and the inside).  I even used the scrap triangle that I cut out to make the flag on the front of the card.  I put it onto the inside of the card.  I love it when I find a use for a scrap!  I hope you enjoy it!
 
Closed

Partly Open 

Inside

Now for the Craft Project Central Project.  It's a great gift to make for the tea lovers in your life!  This wonderful project was designed by Laurie Zoellmer.
 
This lovely ensemble makes the perfect gift or project for an upcoming class or workshop! The tea bag box holds several tea bags, and the coordinating card is sure to "wow" them when they open it and see the pop-up tea cup!

Two September Craft Project Central Projects

I've been sick the last few days, and missed showing you a Craft Project Central project.  Another one came out today, so I'm going to show both of them at once.
 
The first one is a beautiful Thanksgiving Table Setting.  The designer of this pretty project is Tara Bourgoin.
 
With autumn fast approaching, it’s time to turn our thoughts to sweaters, crispy leaves, and Thanksgiving dinners (October 8th for our Canadian friends!). This project will help you get set for your family get together by providing instructions on a warm and inviting holiday table setting, including a centerpiece, place cards, favors for your guests, a ‘grateful’ box for your guests to write what they are grateful for, and so much more! Just add the food, the family and friends, and you’re ready to go!
 

The second project that came out today is a this very cute card set with matching box.  The designer of this great card set is Regina Andari.

Small gift/treat boxes are nice to have on hand, and they’re even better when they can be folded and stored flat until ready to use. This project ensemble includes a flat-fold box, a decorative floral adornment, and four note cards, complete with coordinating envelopes! And using the cute Hoop La La stamp set, it makes a great gift for those that love cross stitch! This project is a quick, easy, and fun class project and also makes a great craft fair project to make and sell!

French Foliage Any Occasion Cards & Portfolio

Here is the third September project over at Craft Project Central.  Isn't it a gorgeous set of Fall cards?  I also love the greeting banners that you take off and put it on your card when you're ready to use it.  This project was designed by the talented Leena Girsa.
 
 The month of September marks the end of summer and the beginning of fall; crisp days and cool nights, trees alive with fiery color and the promise of bountiful harvest. To celebrate fall, we have for you this beautiful card portfolio. Inside the richly decorated folio there are four cards with coordinating envelopes as well as a selection of self-adhesive sentiments. When an occasion arises, a sentiment is chosen and adhered to the card. The card design is suitable for just about anyone, making this a very versatile ensemble. Great for gift giving and as a fall class project!

Perfectly Preserved - Sketch CPC15

Happy Wednesday, everyone!  Boy, Labor Day weeks go fast! Craft Project Central has another monthly sketch, and it's a great one.  It's CPC 15.  The CPC sketch designer is Kris Kilkenny.   Now for the card I made using the sketch.
 
I just had to use one of my favorite Holiday Catalog stamp sets (probably my #1 favorite!), Perfectly Preserved (p. 29).  Of course, I had to use the coordinating Cannery Set Framelits (p. 29) with it!  The designer paper is the Holiday Catalog paper, Orchard Harvest DSP (p. 28).  I REALLY like the colors in this paper!  The dry embossing was done with the Woodgrain Impressions Folder (p. 33), also in the Holiday Catalog.
 
The card is pretty self-explanatory, but there are a few things I want to tell you.  I wanted to make the brads look like old nails hammered into wood, so I hammered them! :)  It's hard to tell in the picture, but hammering them put dents into the brads and flattened them.  I really like the look.  After putting the lid onto the jar, I wrapped a piece of Island Indigo Baker's Twine (p. 172) around the lid twice, and then tied the ends into a bow.  I then put a small strip of Stampin' Dimensionals (p. 177) on the top and bottom of the flower, and I attached it over the bow.  Using two small pieces of dimensionals this way made it so they didn't touch the twine.  It helps the flower stay on better, and lay flat.  I also put a dimensional on the top flower of the flower cluster at the bottom of the jar, and the "thank you" oval greeting.  The strip below the greeting was die-cut from Orchard Harvest DSP using the smallest banner in the Bitty Banners Framelits set (p. 191).
 
After putting the card together, I wanted to do more to the Island Indigo mat.  It just didn't look right with the "wood-grain" piece and the hammered brads.  I took my fingernail, and roughed up the edges to get the worn-look.  That little change made all the difference!
 
Stamps:  Perfectly Preserved set

Ink:  Cajun Craze, Island Indigo, Lucky Limeade, More Mustard, and Early Espresso Classic ink pads; Raspberry Ripple and More Mustard Stampin' Write Markers

Paper:  Cajun Craze, Island Indigo, Early Espresso, and Naturals Ivory card stock; Orchard Harvest DSP

Accessories:  Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine, Cannery Set Framelits, Woodgrain Impressions Folder, Metallic Brads, Island Indigo Baker's Twine, Small Oval Punch, and Stampin' Dimensionals
