Happy Thanksgiving from my family to yours!!!  I hope and pray you have a blessed day.  I will be thinking of all of you and how blessed I am that you are in my life and a part of my fun and creative journey.  I couldn't do this without all of you and for that I am eternally thankful.     

Have a great day and don't eat too much turkey!

My Thanksgiving Card

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Count My Blessings stamp set #144790, Painted Harvest stamp set #144783, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman
 

I just love the Count My Blessing stamp set!  I am excited to say that it is one of the products that is being carried over to the new Occasions catalog.  It is now being offered as a bundle in the Holiday catalog, but will not be a bundle in the new catalog.  So, if you want to save 10% now is the time to do so. 

This year I did the triple stamping technique on my Thanksgiving cards for my family.  This is a fun and easy technique that is so striking once you put it all together.  

To make this project you are going to need the following products:

Cajun Craze Cardstock #119684

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

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut at 3 1/4" x 4 1/2"
  • cut at 3 5/8" x 4 7/8"
  • cut 2 at 4" x 5 1/4"

To do this technique you will want to put your three white pieces together (you will need one of each size above) but only with a little bit of adhesive.  What I do is put maybe a 1/4" piece of snail adhesive on the back of each piece and then tap the adhesive with your finger to get most of the stickiness off.  You want them to just be held together while you stamp and then you will take them apart.  

Once you have your three pieces together you can begin your stamping.  I stamped my sentiment, from the Count My Blessings stamp set, first that way I could see better where I wanted to put my flower.  A little tip for you for the green ferns is that I rocked the stamp from side to side while keeping it firmly in place.  This will help get the image on all three layers of paper.  I know, I just told you to rock your stamp!  LOL  The reason you don't want to rock your stamp, that you can get shadows around your stamped image. 

2 more days until Black Friday!!!  Are you a person who goes out and shops on Black Friday.  We sure are!  To help you with your shopping Stampin' Up! has their Online Extravangza going on now through November 26th.  See all the details below.

As you may have already figured out, this post is coming out a little bit later than normal.  I have to admit that I have been spending time with our daughter, Emily, who is home from Texas.  We haven't seen her since July, so I am enjoying as much time with her as possible.  

Are you baking today for Thanksgiving?  We will be making our pies today!  I love to bake and we are going to try a new recipe this year.  A pecan pie cheesecake.  Doesn't that just sound delicious?  I can't wait! 

We go Black Friday shopping every year and have a lot of fun.  This year will be very different as Erica won't be able to come home for Thanksgiving because she has to work.  We are missing her so much.  Tomorrow morning Mr. Wonderful will go get a newspaper so we can look at everything that is on sale and make a game plan from there.  I know you can get everything online, but it just isn't the same.  We always have all the ads spread out on the family room floor while we watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade and make our list.  

One thing we do ahead of time is go out the weekend before and look for things, try on clothes, so we can go and just get what we want and not have to worry about that.  

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you have a fantastic day!

Merry Christmas Monday Week #3

stampin up, Stampin' Up! Labels to Love stamp set #144967, Seasonal Chums stamp set #144948, Be Merry DSP #144111, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

I have been wanting to do these little cups for a long time.  I was so excited when I saw them on Amazon and ordered them, three months ago.   I put them on them somewhere I wouldn't forget, and guess what, I forgot!  LOL  

When I finally found them I was so excited!  I would like to thank Shari Lackey for sharing her beautiful holder for these cups with the directions.  

These cups are perfect for a gift card holder too!  You can slip a gift card behind the band and fill the cup up with chocolate.   Perfect gift, chocolate and a gift card!

For both of the cups and holders I used the Be Merry designer series paper in our annual catalog.  For the green holder I used the Labels to Love stamp set and the red one I used the sentiment from the Seasonal Chums stamp set.  

You will need the following products to make the holders:

Cherry Cobbler Holder:

Cherry Cobbler Cardstock #119685

  • cut at 2 1/2" x 11"  score at 3/4", 3 1/4", 4" and 6 1/2"
  • cut at 3/4" x 6 1/2" 
  • scrap for the 1 1/4" circle

Whisper White Cardstock # 100730

  • cut at 2 3/8" x 3 5/8"
  • cut at 5/8" x 2 3/8"
  • scraps for the 1" and 1 3/8" circles

Be Merry Designer Series Paper #144111

  • cut at 3" x 7 3/4" for the cup
  • cut at 2 1/4" x 3 1/2"
  • cut at 1/2" x 2 1/4"

Garden Green Holder:

Garden Green Cardstock #102584

  • cut at 2 1/2" x 11"  score at 3/4", 3 1/4", 4" and 6 1/2"
  • cut at 3/4" x 6 1/2"

Cherry Cobbler Cardstock #119685

  • cut at 2 3/8" x 3 5/8"
  • cut at 5/8" x 2 3/8"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut at 1 3/4" x 2 3/4"

Be Merry Designer Series Paper #144111

  • cut at 3" x 7 3/4" for the cup
  • cut at 2 1/4" x 3 1/2"
  • cut at 1/2" x 2 1/4"

To make the cover for the cup I took apart a cup and made a template on a piece of copy paper.  I then traced around the template on to the back of the paper I wanted to use.  That way the pencil marks were not on the front of the cups. 

In the picture below it will show where to score the paper for the holder, use the 2" punch and put the Tear and Tape.  Sometimes, actually a lot of times, it is hard to line up a punch in the center of an area.  So, I have a  little tip for you.  Punch out a circle out of a different color than what you are going to use for your base.  Take that circle and put just a tiny bit of Snail Adhesive on the back of it, and put it where you are wanting to punch out the circle.  Line up the the white circle with the hole in the punch and punch.  You now have your circle perfectly centered.  Yay!!!

Be Merry Designer Series Paper #144111  cut at 3" x 7 3/4" for the cup cut at 2 1/4" x 3 1/2" cut at 1/2" x 2 1/4"

Here is another picture of the holder and cup so you can get a better look at it.

I am so excited today!!!  Emily is coming home tonight!  We have not seen her since July, which is too long!  I can't wait to give her a great big hug!  When she was going through Hurricane Harvey, she lives in Houston, all I wanted to do was hug her.  As a mother I don't think you ever get over your love to hug your kids.  

Tomorrow is Erica's birthday.  This will be her first birthday away from us, so I know it is going to be hard for her.  Thankfully she will be busy with work and my family is around her.  I have a little surprise for her, I hope she likes it.  Again, I just want to give her a birthday hug.  If you haven't figured it out yet, I love to give hugs. 

Maybe that is why I love doing daycare so much.  I am giving out hugs all day long and they are wonderful! 

Thank you for stopping by on the beautiful Friday.  I hope you have an awesome day and a wonderful weekend!

Thoughts and Prayers and Jar of Love Fall Card

stampin up, Stampin' Up! Thoughts and Prayers stamp set #127805, Jar of Love stamp set #141587, Layered Leaves Embossing Folder #143704, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3 D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

One of my customers and dear friend, Stacy, had a workshop with me and wanted to use the Jar of Love stamp set for her cards we made.  As soon as she picked the date I had an idea on how to use this stamp set with a fall theme.  When I started making this card it didn't have any texture and I really didn't care for it.  I kept thinking, how was I going to make this better?  Then I thought about embossing it with one of our folders, but I already had the strips on the left taped down onto the card base.  Why not do it with the strips already there.  Either it was going to turn out good or really bad.  Thank goodness, it was good!   Yay!  I love how it turned out and so did Stacy.  I have used this technique quite a bit since.  

To make this card you will need the following products:

Cajun Craze Cardstock #119684

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

Crushed Curry Cardstock #131199

  • cut at 1/2" x 5 1/2"

Pumpkin Pie Cardstock #105117

  • cut at 1/2" x 5 1/2"

Wild Wasabi Cardstock #108641

  • cut at 2 1/2" x 4 1/2"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

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

I am not sure if you noticed that I used a piece of the Cajun Craze cardstock the same size as the front of the card.  If you would like, you can emboss the front panel of the card instead of adding an extra piece of paper.  

When you are stamping the stems, the one on the left is stamped using the whole stamp.  However, on the right I didn't ink up about 1/2" of the stem on the bottom of the stamp.  This will give you two different heights of the flowers and still keep them within the jar.  The water in the jar was made using Soft Sky ink and  stamping it off first on a scrap piece of paper before stamping on your card front.  You want to make sure that it is light, but that you can still see it.  

I stamped one stem of the flowers in the inside of the card on the bottom left hand corner and on the envelope.  I used Stampin Dimensionals to pop up the stamped image and the Wild Wasabi cardstock. To complete the card I added a triple loop bow using the Linen Thread.

Merry Christmas Monday Week #2

I was on Pinterest last week looking for some inspiration for some gift card holders and I came across a card with a tag and holder on the front of it.  I thought it was interesting, because I hadn't seen anything like it before.  I can't remember who designed the card I saw, but thank you for sharing it with everyone.   The first thing I had to do was come up with a template on how to make this and the measurements.  Once I figured that out, I had to come up with a design. 

The first one I made, which I forgot to take a picture of, I made for Erica for her birthday.  I had so much fun making it, I thought it would be great to make another one for my Merry Christmas Monday series.  The above picture is the first one I came up with.  Isn't the little reindeer so cute?!  Oh, my goodness, I love him!  He is from the stamp set Seasonal Chums stamp set and has matching framelits, Seasonal Tags. There is also a snowman and a pumpkin in the set too.  

I colored him with the new Stampin' Blends markers, can you see the shading on him?  I used the dark and light Crumb Cake and Cherry Cobbler along with the dark Basic Gray, dark Daffodil Delight and the Bronze markers.  A reminder that when you use the Stampin' Blends markers you have to stamp your images with the Memento Ink.  

To make this project you will need the following products:

Crumb Cake Cardstock #120953

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

Cherry Cobbler Cardstock #119685

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

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

Below are pictures on how to make the tag and holder.

You are going to score on the 8 1/4" side at 3 1/2" and then turn your paper to the 3 3/4" side and you will score at 1/2" on each side.  If you look at the second picture you will see how I cut and scored the paper at the same time.  You are going to cut down until you get the to score line (the 3 1/2" line)  and then you are going to score to the end of the paper.  You can see in the picture below what I am talking about.

After you have done your scoring and cutting, don't forget to angle the 1/2" pieces so they fold nicely.  Refer back to the first picture where you need to cut the flaps at an angle.

The next step is to mark the section that you just cut the flaps off of at 1 3/8" (this is the center of this end of your paper).  If you look at the picture you can see where I placed the mark.

The paper is going to be wider than the slot on the punch, but you can still use it.  You will need to slide the paper in the punch as it is shown in the picture above. Once you have it in the punch make sure your mark at 1 3/8" is in the center of the punch.  See the photo above to see the mark I made.

Next, trim off the little tabs that are still on there.

Add a strong adhesive, as shown above, I used the Tear and Tape, and burnish (use a bone folder to make a sharp crease on the score lines) and put it together.  Figure out where you want to put it on your card before adhering it.  With this strong of adhesive it is hard to take it off and move it.  

For the background on my card, I used the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder on the Cherry Cobbler piece of paper.  Now, is the fun part, decorate the tag holder as you wish. 

Making the tag is super easy.  Take a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock and cut it at 2 1/2" x 4 1/2".   I used the Scalloped Tag Topper again, so it will match and you will have to slide it in the same way as the Crumb Cake piece.

With this set, the stamps have a front and back and they are attached.  It is designed that way so you can fold it in half and have a cute little tag all at once.  How awesome is that!  I cut mine apart, so I used the back piece to decorate the inside of the card.  For your envelope you could just stamp the front of the reindeer and color it if you wanted to or you could just leave it uncolored.  Either way, it will be beautiful.

Isn't the back side of this deer just as cute as the front.  He is so stinkin' cute!

Our carpet is finished!!! I love, love, love it!  One of my daycare kids told me it is so squishy.  Compared to our old carpet, that is 18 years old, it is definitely squishy.  LOL  I don't think I have worked that hard physically in a very long time.  It took them four days to finish all of it, but it was so worth it.  I really don't want to move any more furniture for a while.  You don't realize how much stuff you have until you have to move all of it.  Needless to say, there were a lot of trips to drop of things to Goodwill.  

Mr. Wonderful went to Michigan over the weekend to spend some time with Erica.  I know that made her very happy to see her daddy.  I love how she still calls us mommy and daddy.  I really wish I could have gone with him.  I haven't seen her since the beginning of September.  This is the longest we have gone without seeing each other.  We are hoping and praying she will be able to come for a few days at Christmas.  

Emily comes home late on Friday night (well, really Saturday very early in the morning).  We haven't seen her since July and I can't wait.  It is really hard being this far away from our girls.  We are blessed that she will be able to be home for a week and two weeks at Christmas. 

Oh my goodness!  Do not try to type up your blog post when you are very tired.  I have a very busy week this week, so I have been working a lot in my stamping studio this weekend getting prepared for it.  I was working on this blog post late last night and was literally falling asleep while I was typing.  So, I went to bed and finished it this morning.  It is a good thing I went back and reread it.  One section I wrote the same thing three times, three different ways.  Another section I typed what I heard on TV.  It would have been a very interesting and funny blog post if I had posted it.  Note to self, don't work on blog post when you are tired.  LOL  

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you have a blessed week.

More Merry Messages/Snowflake Sentiments

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! More Merry Messages stamp set, Snowflake Sentiments #144820, Winter wWonder Embossing Folder #144686, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects, go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

I have met a wonderful demonstrator from Michigan, Ronda Wade, and she has graciously shared this card with us.  I love the simplicity and elegance of it.  I used the sentiment from a retired stamp set, More Merry Messages, but you could use the Merry Christmas from the Star of Light stamp set.  

To make this card you will need the following products:

Very Vanilla Cardstock #101650

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

Gold Glimmer Paper #133719

  • cut at 2 1/4" x 2 1/4"

To make this card you will start with embossing your 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Very Vanilla with the sentiment with the Gold Embossing Powder.  This will make it easier to figure out the placement of the Winter Wonderland Embossing Folder.   You will then emboss the following with the Gold Embossing Powder:

  • snowflake for the front (use the 2" x 2" square)
  • snowflake on the bottom left hand corner on the inside of the card
  • on the bottom left hand corner of your envelope

Punch out the Gold Glimmer Paper with the 2" circle punch and the snowflake with the 1 3/4" circle punch.  I used Tear and Tape to adhere my snowflake to the Gold Glimmer Paper and then used Stampin Dimensionals to adhere it to the card.  To finish it off I added an little pearl in the middle of the snowflake.

If you want to make it even faster to make, stamp the snowflakes and sentiment with ink instead of embossing with the Gold Embossing Folder.  You could do a lot of different color combinations for this card and come up with a lot of different looks. 

Don't forget to stop by on Monday for my Merry Christmas Monday series!

Thank you for stopping by today!  Have a great weekend.

Do you ever make a card and wonder if anyone else will like it.  This is the card that I wasn't sure how my ladies in my class would take it.  Either they would like it or they would hate it.  Thank goodness they all loved it and thought it was funny.  Yay!!!    Wait until you see the inside of the card.  

To make this card you will need the following products:

Cherry Cobbler Cardstock #126966

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

Old Olive Cardstock #126953

  • cut at 2 5/8" x 4 1/8"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

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

I used the Brick Wall Embossing Folder on one of the Whisper White cardstock pieces for texture on this card.   I put dimensionals under the Cherry Cobbler to pop up the stamped images.  

To color the wine bottle and glass I used the Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and So Saffron markers.  For my envelope I stamped the wine bottle and colored it too.  You wouldn't have to color the one on your envelope if you didn't want to.

Here is the picture of the inside of the card

I apologize for the lateness of this blog post.  We are getting our new carpet put in this week, so every night we are having to move furniture around and put beds together and all that good stuff.  On top of that last night I had my last Christmas Card class on Tuesday for the year. 

I had two new ladies join us and they are wonderful.  We had so much fun!  I really miss these classes when they end for the season.  I have to say this is one of my favorite classes that I teach.  

Thank you for stopping by today!

Merry Christmas Monday Week #1

 

Merry Christmas Monday, Stampin' Up! Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects, go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

 

Welcome to my Merry Christmas Monday series!  For the next 7 weeks I will be sharing with you a different project made especially for the Christmas season.  I have been having fun already creating for my favorite holiday, Christmas!  I love the crisp air, lights, music, baking, making gifts and spending time with the ones that are dear to me.  

My first project that I am going to share with you is also one of my Splitcoaststampers Creative Crew projects.  Our daughters, Emily and Erica were my inspiration for this project.  We had to create a tag  and a box to put them in or attached to a gift.  I actually did both, the box and gift.   I knew I was going to give wine/sparkling cider  this year as gifts to family and friends and to our girls, Emily and Erica.  So, I went on Pinterest and found a really cute wine bottle wrap and went from there.  The tutorial I followed for this is by Frenchie, who is also a Stampin' Up! demonstrator.  

Here is the final project:

stampin up, Stampin' Up! Merry Little Labels #1444795, Foil Snowflakes #144642, Year of Cheer Speciality Designer Series Paper #144640, 3/8" Metallic-Edge Ribbon #144146, 1/8" Ribbon-Gold #134583, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

This is an easy way to dress up the wine or sparkling cider you are taking to dinner at a friend's house or giving as a gift.  Doesn't it look so much nicer than a plain bottle?  

I started out writing up the directions on how to make this and thought this would be so much easier with a video.  So, I made a video, edited it and was ready to download it to YouTube.  While I was doing this we had very bad thunderstorms, which my computer did not like.  LOL  However, after a very long time, I got it down loaded and ready for you to see.  I have the video at the end of this post. 

To make this project you will need the following products:
