Fall Friday 2017 Week #4

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Spooky Cat stamp set #144749, Cat Punch #144666, Spooky Night DSP #144610, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

 

This weeks project is perfect if you need a quick little treat for someone.  I used the Carmel Apple Pops for inside of them.  All of my attendees at my Stamp Camp classes this week received these. A couple of my ladies loved the black cat so much they ordered it right away.  Guess what? You can get the stamp set and punch as a bundle and save 10%!

To make this project you will need the following products:

Basic Black Cardstock #121045

  • cut at 2" x 2 1/4"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut at 1 1/2" x 2 1/2"

Spooky Night Designers Series Paper #144610

  • cut at 2 1/2" x 6 1/4" score at 3" and 3 1/4"

Fold and burnish (go over your score lines with a bone folder) your score lines, but be gentle as this is designer series paper, so it is a little thinner than our normal cardstock.  For the hold for the stick of the candy, I used our 1/8" Handheld Circle Punch.  I centered it between the two score lines.   

The sentiment is stamped with Tangerine Tango in and punched out with the Classic Label Punch.  I used snail adhesive to put on the cat and the sentiment.  I then put 3 glue dots on the top edge of the paper, put the candy inside and adhered the two ends together.

I made 15 of them in about 15-20 minutes.  These are very easy and fast to make if you need a lot of them.

On Wednesday night Mr. Wonderful and I took out the old countertops and sink.  We weren't sure how long this would take or how hard it will be as we have never done anything like this before. Oh my goodness!! I don't know how my countertops stayed on!  My island was only attached with two screws, the section with the sink, two screws, but the little piece between my stove and refrigerator, it had 3 screws.  It was a lot easier than we thought it would be.  

What a crazy busy day we had yesterday though.  Early in the morning, I was hoping to sleep in, we had the plumber here to do some work for us in our upstairs bathroom.  Then about an hour later we had the carpet guy here to measure our upstairs as we are replacing all of the carpet on that level.  When that is finished we are done with the upstairs! Yay!!!

As soon as he leaves, we run out to get some lunch and just as we get our food, we get a phone call that the installers for our countertops are on their way. So much for lunch. It didn't take them too long to install them.  I love them!!!!

We had about an hour break and then plumber came to hook everything up.  It seemed like he took forever, even though I know he didn't.  I wanted to get in there and clean up my kitchen and get everything put back where it belonged.  Here are some pictures of our adventure.  

PicMonkey Collage


The picture on the left is from yesterday morning, before they got here and the one on the right is with the new countertops in.  They are so pretty.  I had to wait 4 hours before I could put anything on them and make sure I washed them down a couple of times to get all the dust off of them.  

Here are the final pictures of my new kitchen.

I am so happy the way it all turned out.  I just want to stay in my kitchen!  

I hope everyone has a fantastic Friday and a wonderful weekend!

Smitten Mittens Card

stampin up, Stampin' Up! Smitten Mittens stamp set #144931, Winter Wonder Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #144686, Many mittens Framelits #144672,  created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects, go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

This is one of the cards that we made at my Christmas Card Classes this month.  The first time I saw this stamp set in the catalog it went on my wish list.  You can use this stamp set for Christmas, but you can also use it for winter projects too. I love the combination of the mittens with the Winter Wonder Embossing Folder. This stamp set has matching framelits, Many Mittens, and you can get both of them as a bundle for 10% off.  This stamp set just keeps getting better and better!

To make this card you will need the following products:

Cherry Cobbler Cardstock #119685

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
  • cut at 3" x 5"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut 2 at 4" x 5 1/4"
  • cut 2 at 1" x 3" for the snowflakes and tops of mittens

When I embossed the piece of Whisper White cardstock with the Winter Wonder folder I put the image to the left side of the paper.  I wanted you to be able to see more of the embossed image.  If you put the embossed image in the center of your paper and then put the mittens on top, you wouldn't have seen much of the stamped image.   

I stamped the snowflakes on the mittens and the top part of the mittens with Cherry Cobbler ink.  The snowflakes are adhered with Stampin Dimensionals.  When it was all assembled, I added Wink of Stella to the sections of the embossed snowflake that were visible. DO NOT put the Wink of Stella on the stamped snowflakes.  The ink will bleed and it will make a mess. Below is a picture so you can see better what I did.

 

tampin up, Stampin' Up! Smitten Mittens stamp set #144931, Winter Wonder Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #144686, Many mittens Framelits #144672,  created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects, go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

To finish the card, I added a double loop bow made with the White Bakers Twine.  For the sentiment inside the card, I used a stamp from the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set.   It said "warm heartfelt greeting for a very Merry Christmas".  I also stamped the Cherry Cobbler snowflake on the inside of the card and the envelope.    

I really appreciate you stopping by today and checking out my blog. I hope you all have a terrific day!

Painted Harvest and Snowflake Sentiments Christmas Card

stampin up, Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest #144783, Snowflake Sentiments ##144820, Garden Trellis Embossing Folder #143741, designed and created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

I love how versatile some of our stamp sets are, especially the Painted Harvest one.  You all know how much I love this stamp set, as I have used it a lot.  I saw a card on Pinterest that used this stamp set as a Christmas wreath and thought it was brilliant.  

To make this card you will need the following products:

Garden Green Cardstock #102584

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
  • cut at 3 1/8" x 4 3/8"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut 2 at 4" x 5 1/4"
  • cut at 3" x 4 1/4"

You will use one of  the Whisper White cardstock pieces to emboss using the Garden Trellis Embossing Folder.  This piece gets adhered to the front of the card base with the other one in the inside of the card.  On the small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the Merry Christmas first and then my wreath.  

For the wreath you are going to stamp the largest stamp with Pear Pizzazz and the second layer is stamped with Garden Green ink.  I then took the little stamp that has the dots on it and used Real Red ink to stamp them on top of the wreath.  To finish off the wreath I tied a small bow with the Real Red 1/8" Solid Ribbon.  The top two layers are popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals. 

This card was the favorite of my ladies at my Christmas card classes last week.  

If you have a hard time lining up your stamps in the Painted Harvest stamp set, I did a video to show you a little trick I have to line them up.

We have been having a lot of fun working on our house this last week and weekend.  We had most of the painting done until I came up with another idea.  I don't think Mr. Wonderful is liking all my wonderful ideas lately.  LOL  We had the stairwells painted last week and I love the color we picked.  In our entry way the paint from the upstairs stairs comes down a little into it.  I like the color of our entryway and the hall, but it just doesn't look as good with the new paint.  Since we have a gallon of paint left, I thought we could paint the hall the same color.  Believe it or not, Mr. Wonderful agreed!  Yay! It isn't a real big area so it shouldn't take us too long to paint it.  

This week we get our new countertops!  I am so excited.  The fixtures in the girls bathroom will get done tomorrow and then I get to start packing up my kitchen cupboards.  I don't want anything to get on my things when they put in the countertops, so I am emptying them. I really want to put up my fall decorations, but am waiting until all of this is done.  I usually have them up on September 1st, but not this year.  I will be putting them up this week however.  

Thank you for stopping by today!  It means a lot to me that you would take time out of your day to stop in.  Have a magnificient Monday!

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Sheltering Tree #137163, Tabs for Everything #143907, Large Letters Framelits #141712, Classic Label Punch #141491, created and designed by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

I have been seeing cards with the Eclipse technique everywhere, so I thought I would try and make one myself.  I wasn't sure at first if this was going to be difficult or easy to make.  I am happy to say that they are very easy to make.  You can do so much with this technique and for so many different occasions.  

To make this card you will need the following products:

Chocolate Chip Cardstock #102128

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut 2 at 4" x 5 1/4"

The first thing I did to make this card was stamp three trees from the Sheltering Tree stamp set using the Chocolate Chip ink.  I then stamped the leaves of the tree with Crushed Curry ink.  The second time I stamped the leaves, they had the colors of Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler and Pumpkin Pie.  I used sponge daubers and dabbed the three colors in various places on the leaves.  I then stamped them on top of the Crushed Curry leaves.  I did, however, move the stamp either a little to the left, up or down.  You don't want to stamp it right on top of where you stamped them in Crushed Curry.

When you have everything stamped you will want to draw a faint line with a pencil (you can see my line in the above picture as I forgot to erase it, Oops).  I put mine at 3/4" from the top of the paper. I lined up the letters from the Large Letter Framelits with the top of them on the line I drew.  You want to make sure when you run your paper with the framelits through the big shot that they don't move.  You can use post it notes, post it note tape or washi tape to hold the framelits in place if needed.  

I have a little tip for you when you are lining up your letters.  When I was trying to figure out where to put the letters I realized I only had one "L".  Well, that wasn't going to work, so what do I do.  I took my "L" and measured it against the other letters and found out that the "E" was the same size.  So, I put the F,A, L and E on my card and then right before I ran it through the big shot I took off the "E".  I then ran it through a second time with just the "L".  Don't throw away the center piece of the letter "A" you will need it.

To make the letters higher than the stamped paper you will want to use the Foam Adhesive Strips.  They fit the letters perfectly.  The center piece of the "A" is not popped up, it is adhered to the stamped paper.  

Here is another picture so you can see it at an angle.

So, what do you think of this technique?  I would love to see your creations with this technique!

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  Have a fabulous Friday and a wonderful weekend!

Eastern Medallions Christmas Card

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! More Merry Messages stamp set, Eastern Medallions Thinlits #143725, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects, go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

 

I was on Pinterest and saw a card created by Lou Kutzelman that gave me the inspiration for today's card. The Eastern Medallions Thinlits are probably the most versatile thinlits I have ever seen.  You can do so many different combinations with the dies with a different look each time.   I used four of the dies to create the ornaments for this card.   The stamp set I used is the More Merry Messages, but it is retired.  When I made this card, forgot to share it with you earlier, it was before the new Holiday catalog had come out.  I wanted a beautiful Merry Christmas to go with the elegance of this card, but didn't have any that were current.  I remembered this stamp set and brought it out and it was exactly what I wanted.  You could use the Merry Christmas in the Star of Light stamp set that is in the annual catalog.  

To make this card you will need the following products:

Real Red Cardstock #102482

  • cut at 4 1/4" x 11" score at 5 1/2"
  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

Gold Foil Sheet #132622

  • cut at 3 1/2" x 3 7/8"

Whisper White Cardstock # 100730

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4" this is for inside the card

The Merry Christmas is stamped with Versa Mark ink and then heat embossed with the Gold Embossing Powder.  I popped up the top layer of Real Red cardstock because of the ribbon and piece of Gold Foil paper behind it.  It added a little bit of depth to the card.  

For the finishing touch I used the 1/8" Gold Ribbon for the string and bows on each of the ornaments.  There is something so classic looking about red and gold for Christmas.

Over the weekend we went to Michigan to take Erica the rest of her things and help her finish getting things settled in her room at my neice's apartment.  When she went up to Traverse City 6 weeks ago, she just took what she could fit in her car, which wasn't much.  When we walked into her room, it was just that, a room.  She didn't have any curtains up or pictures, nothing to make it her own.  By the time we got finished with it, it looks like a cozy room that is perfect for her. Just adding curtains and pictures and some decorations made a world of difference.  

While we were there we ate at some wonderful restaurants.  One of the places we went was a place on the bay called Harringtons By The Bay.  Oh, my goodness!   It was delicious!  My mom and sister had taken the girls and I there when we were in there in June.  I knew Mark would love it, because of all the seafood.  Here is a picture of the smoked whitefish pâté and my smoked whitefish.  They were both amazing and what's even more surprising, is I am not a big fish eater.  I loved all of it!

While shopping at Wal-Mart for things Mark decided he need to be a little silly.  I just can't take him anywhere.  LOL

IMG_0055

 

We also went to Sleder's, which is the oldest restaurant in the whole state of Michigan.  It was built in 1882 and is still the same decor as it was when it was built.  We have to go there every time we go back home.

Mark and Erica went hiking on Saturday while I got to spend some time with my mom.  I totally forgot to take a picture of us.  I even told her the day before that I wanted to get a new picture.  Grr.  Here is a picture that Mark and Erica took while on their hike. 

IMG_0056

Look how blue the sky was.  It was beautiful on Friday and Saturday, just a little chilly.  I didn't care because we were spending time with Erica.

SCS Creative Crew September 2017 Project #3

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up Vintage Leaves stamp set #138802, Merry Cafe stamp set #144965, Retiform Technique, designed and created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

 

I have been wanting to try the Retiform Technique for a while.  With fall being our theme, I thought this would be a great time to try it.  I love it!  It is so fun and you get to use so many stamps from the one set.  You know how sometimes you only use 1 or 2 stamps from a set, this makes you use most, if not all of them.  

To make this project you will need the following products:

Early Espresso Cardstock #11968

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut 2 at 4" x 5 1/4"

The ink colors I used were:

  • Cajun Craze #126965
  • Cherry Cobbler 126966
  • Crumb Cake #126975
  • Crushed Curry #131173
  • Early Espresso #126974
  • Old Olive #126953
  • Tangerine Tango #126946

The stamp sets I used were the Vintage Leaves and Merry Cafe. Vintage Leaves has been around for a long time and is still one of my favorites.  I used the sentiment from the Merry Cafe stamp set, which is in the holiday catalog, but only part of it.  The whole sentiment is "Hello Fall!  it's pumpkin spice latte season".  To get only a section of the stamp I used a post it note and covered up the part I didn't want inked.  Before I stamped it onto my paper,  I took off the post it note and was able to stamp only the hello fall section.  You have to remember to take off the post it note before you stamp your paper though.  Don't ask how I know this.  Too many times I have had to fix my mistake.  

This is really my fourth and final project from SCS Creative Crew.  My third was the Fall Friday Week #2 project.  If you missed it click HERE to see it.

Fall Friday 2017 Week #2

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Colorful Seasons stamp set #143726, Seasonal Layers Thinliets #143751, Painted Autumn DSP #144613, designed by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects please go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

When I am making projects, I try to make them so I can use them for a dual purpose.  If I am making a birthday card for a friend or family member or cards we made in my classes, I share it with you on my blog.  This project is doing the same thing.  I created it for the SCS Creative Crew and thought this would also be perfect for my Fall Friday series.   I am in love with the Painted Autumn paper so much that I don't want to use any other dsp.  They are all beautiful, but there is something about this paper I just love.  

You will need the following supplies to make the project:

Early Espresso Cardstock #119686

  • cut at 6 1/2" x 6 1/2"

Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper #144613

  • cut at 3 1/2" x 3 1/2"

Very Vanilla Cardstock #101650

  • cut at 3/4" x 2 1/2"

Gold Foil Paper #132622

  • cut at 2 1/2" x 2 1/2"

You will also need the following cardstock colors:

     Cajun Craze #119684   

    Crushed Curry #131199

    Old Olive #100702

    Tangerine Tango #111349

    

The squares are 1 1/2" and then I used scraps for the leaves.  The sentiment is stamped in Early Espresso and punched out with the Classic Label Punch.  I used the 3/8" Mini Chevron ribbon in Old Olive.  

I really like making the shadow boxes and have made a couple of them before.  For complete directions on how to make the shadow box, please click HERE.

This weekend we are in Michigan, taking the rest of Erica's stuff up to her.  We are going to do all the fun things like insurance, license plates and a new driver's license.  Not looking forward to that.  If you get a chance, could you please say a little prayer that everything goes smoothly and we have everything we need.  I know when we get finished with all of it, it will hit me that she is truly not coming home and living 8 hours from us.  

I know we are suppose to raise them to leave our home and go out on their job, but this isn't easy.  I have been saying, can the girls get any further apart?  One in Michigan and one in Texas.  

I will get to see my mom this weekend, so I am super excited about that.  I can't wait!  My family is really hoping I will come home more now that Erica lives up there with them.  Secretly I am hoping I get to too.  

Update on Emily:  Here class room is perfect!  There were a couple wet ceiling tiles, if they leaked it didn't get on any of her stuff.  Praise God!!!  I can't thank you all enough for all of your prayers.  Emily asked me to tell you how much she appreciated them and how much they meant to her and her friends.  She was truly blessed through this whole thing.  The only thing she had to deal with was no internet for a week.

SCS Creative Crew September 2017 Project #2

stampin up, Stampin' Up! Butterfly Basics Stamp Set #137154, Painted Autumn DSP #144613, Stitched Shapes Framelits #145372, designed by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects, go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

We were given 5 different fall pictures to get inspiration from and this was my card I made.  You could use this card as a birthday card for feminine or masculine, which is nice.  I think at times we all have a hard with masculine cards.  This card is also a fast and easy card that you could change the designer series paper and cardstock and have a totally different card.  

To make this card you will need the following products:

Early Espresso Cardstock #119686

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"

Garden Green Cardstock #102584

  • cut at 4 1/8" x5 3/8"
  • cut at 3 1/4" x 3 1/4"

Cajun Craze Cardstock #119684

  • cut at 3 1/4" x 3 1/4"

Daffodil Delight Cardstock #119683

  • cut at 3 1/4" x 3 1/4"

Whisper White Cardstock #110730

  • cut at 3 1/4" x 3 1/4"
  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper #144613

  • cut at 4" x 5 /14"

 

I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut out all of the circles.  On the inside of the card and on the envelope I used the sentiment Happy Birthday from the Basic Butterfly stamp set.

I would like to first thank everyone for your prayers for our daughter, Emily.  Life is starting to get back to normal for a lot of people and yet, there are still a lot of people that are trying to deal with losing everything they own.  It is so sad, devastating and heartbreaking what Texas is going through right now.  Please continue to pray for everyone while they go through everything and learn how to deal with all of it.  

Emily will be going back to school today to see what her room looks like.  We are praying that she was saved from the water.  To get into her school you have to go up 4-5 steps to get to the front door.  All the teachers moved everything in their rooms up 3 feet from the floor.  So, that is about 7 feet up and we don't think the water got that high in that area.  Tomorrow the children will begin coming back. They are trying to get everything back to normal the best they can.  

Over the weekend we were busy painting our kitchen.  You know how you start one little project and it just snowballs.  Well, that is what is happening in our home.  It all started with us wanting to change the kitchen faucet.  Then if we are going to do that, why don't we go ahead and get the new counter tops that we have been wanting.  Well, if you have new countertops, we should repaint the kitchen before they are installed.  If I am changing the colors in my kitchen  that means I have to change the colors in my family room as they are all open to each other.  All of this because I wanted a new faucet.  I think the next time I ask for that Mr. Wonderful is going to be telling me no way!  LOL  

We ended up having to paint the walls 3 times.  Once with primer and two with the paint.  I have to say I really like the new color.  I finished the cornice's in the family room.  It amazes me how much brighter a room can look just by changing the paint color and some fabric.  I can't wait until we have it all done.  Then the next big project will be replacing all the carpet on our top level of our home.  I am definitely not looking forward to that.  

We have lived in our home with a daycare for 18 years, so it is definitely time to update it.  It will be very nice, once it is all done.  

Here is a picture of the primer on the walls.  

IMG_0014

I will show all of you a picture once we have everything finished.  It will be later in the month when the counter tops get installed.  I can't wait!

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope everyone has a wonderful Wednesday!

SCS Creative Crew September 2017 Project #1

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest stamp set #144783, Burlap Background Stamp #143982, Jute Twine #144625, Wink of Stella #141897, designed by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects, go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

Do you remember me telling you I was asked to be on the SplitcoastStampers Creative Crew?  This was my first month to participate and our theme was fall.  I was so excited when I heard our theme.  Fall is one of my favorite times of the year.  

We had to create a card and then do a stepped up card by adding embellishments, layers or whatever you wanted to make it better.  The card on the left is my original card and to step it up I added our new Jute Twine and Wink of Stella on the flower on the card on the right.

To make this card you will need the following products:

Early Espresso Cardstock #119686

  • cut at 4 1/4" x 11" score at 5 1/2"

Very Vanilla Cardstock #101650

  • cut 2 at 4" x 5 1/4"

Did you notice the Burlap Background stamp?  I just got this and I am in love with it.  For this card I used the Crumb Cake ink.  I think you will be seeing this stamp a lot this fall.  I stamped the flower on Very Vanilla cardstock with Daffodil Delight ink first, then Crushed Curry. The center was stamped with Early Espresso  ink and then fussy cut the flower.  The leaves were stamped with Pear Pizzazz and Garden Green ink and punched out with the new Leaf Punch.   

To create this flower there is 3 different stamps and sometimes they are kinda hard to line up.  Below is a quick video on how to line up your stamps so your flower is perfect every time.  

 

I will be posting the other 4 projects in my next 4 post.   On Wednesday I will be showing you my inspiration piece, Friday my second Fall Friday project and on next Monday I will be showing you my technique card.  

Thank you for stopping by today and have a Happy Labor Day!
