A Big Thank You (CT #165)

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! A Big Thank You stamp set #147377, Frosted Floral designer series paper #147800, Layering Oval Framelits #141706, CASEing Tuesday, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

The Frosted Floral designer series paper is definitely a paper you need to see in person to see for yourself how beautiful it is.  All of the pages have a shimmery frost on them.  This paper is absolutely gorgeous!  I was excited when I saw our inspiration card for this weeks CASEing Tuesday.  I knew right away which designer series paper I was going to use. 

Here is a picture of our inspiration card

40097805_10214130893920737_2739419730111627264_n

The card in the picture is a square card, but I made mine as a standard size (4 1/4" x 5 1/2") card.  I had a lot of fun stamping the sentiment on this card.  I used the A Big Thank You stamp set, Mint Macaron ink and a Tranquil Tide Stampin Marker.

To create this look, I first put Mint Macaron ink on my stamp. Then I took the Tranquil Tide marker and tapped it randomly on top of the Mint Macaron ink..  You are going to want to use the larger end of your marker, the one that looks like a paint brush.  You don't want to put too much of the Tranquil Tide on your stamp, because you want to be able to still see the Mint Macaron when you stamp it.  Before you stamp your image, you will want to huff on it first.  By doing this, you are making the ink moist again and ready for stamping.  

You can't see it in the picture, but I put Wink of Stella on top of the stamped image.  It just added the right amount of sparkle to go with the designer series paper.  

 To make this card you will need the following paper.  For a complete list of all the products I used, please see the end of this post.

Whisper White Thick

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

I used Whisper White Thick as my card base and then added the designer series paper.   I wrapped the Silver Metallic Edged ribbon around the top section of the card and tied a knot.  The sentiment is popped using Stampin Dimensionals.

Wishing You Well

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Wishing You Well stamp set #147864, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

In one of my swaps that I participated in for the holiday catalog I received a beautiful card from Michelle Miller.  It was the same layout that I did, I just changed the colors and ribbon that I used.  I didn't have the stamp set Wishing You Well, because to be honest, I totally overlooked it.  When I saw Michelle's card and others online I fell in love with it and knew I needed to order it.   You know what caught my eye the most on the samples I saw?  The bow!  I have heard other demonstrators say they ordered this stamp set just for the bow and fell in love with the whole set.  I totally get that.  The bow is stunning!

This bow is one of the distINKtive stamps.  Look at the beautiful shading you get and it is all done with only stamping it once.

I stamped the bow on the inside of my card and on the outside of my envelope using Gorgeous Grape ink.  

To make this card you will need the following paper.  For a complete list of all the products I used, please see the end of this post.

Cardstock:

Whisper White Thick

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

Gorgeous Grape

  • cut at 3" x 5"

Whisper White

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

It may appear that there is one sheet of white paper on the top layer, but it is actually two pieces.  I did my stamping first, then adhered the two pieces to the Gorgeous Grape cardstock.  I added the 1/8" Sheer Whisper White ribbon and then popped it up with Stampin Dimensionals.

One this card I used only 2 colors of paper, Gorgeous Grape and Whisper White, and one ink color, Gorgeous Grape.  It is a simple card, but so striking.

Fall Friday 2018 Week #2

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Detailed Leaves Thinlits #147921, Baker's Boxes #147899, Festive Farmhouse designers series paper #147820, Leaves Trinklets #146343, Fall Friday 2018, Week #2, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

This week I went to Target to see if I could find some fun candy to put in the new Baker's Boxes from the holiday catalog.  Do you remember last year when I did two cute packages with fun apple shaped candy?  If you missed it, click on Fall Friday 2017 Week #5     I didn't find that candy but I did find the delicious Werther's Pumpkin Spice soft caramels.  They are so good!  I am glad I needed them for this project or I might have eaten the whole bag!

I used one of the Baker's Boxes on page 49 in the holiday catalog.  These boxes are the perfect size to put candy or a baked goodie in them (they are food safe).  I wanted a designer series paper that had a fall color and found this one in the Festive Farmhouse designer series paper.  Yes, I found it in a Christmas pack!  It is amazing to me at times how versatile Stampin' Up! products are.  I am so happy they are!

To make this card you will need the following paper.  For a complete list of all the products I used, please see the end of this post.

Cardstock:

Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler and Mossy Meadow

  • cut at 3 1/2" x 3 1/2"

Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper

  • cut at 4 at 2" x 4 1/8"

When you put the strips that go around the box you are going to need to do a little bit of trimming.  You can see in the pictures below where you need to trim your paper.

I used the 3/4" circle punch to cut the designer series paper on the front of the box that is overlapping the cut out already on the box.  

I used the beautiful Detailed Leaves thinlits to cut out the leaves.  Did you notice on the green leaf there is embossing on it?  I used our Embossing Mats to make it.  You can take any framelit and make it an embossing framelit.  I used Linen Thread and made triple bows on each set of leaves.  On the leaves on the front I added one of the copper Leave Trinkets that are in the annual catalog.

Snowflake Sentiment Christmas Card

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Snowflake Sentiments stamp set #144820, Joyous Noel designer series paper #147816, Merry Merlot & Copper Ribbon #147818, Layering Oval Framelits #141706, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

Every time there is a new catalog I participate in numerous swaps.  When I talk about swaps, what I mean is, a group of us get together (let's say there is 20 of us), and we each make 20 of the same card.  Once we are finished we exchange (swap) with each other.  So, we make 20 of the same card, but go home with 20 different cards.  It is so fun and I love to see all the different cards people have created.  

I CASE'd (create and share everything) this card from one of the swaps I participated in.  The creator of this card is Sandy Carlson.  I changed the paper I used, we both used the same designer series paper, just different pieces from the pack, and the colors of the card base and the layer on top of that.  I just fell in love with Sandy's card the minute I saw it.  I knew I wanted to make it for one of my make and takes at my catalog launch party.  

To make this card you will need the following paper.  For a complete list of all the products I used, please see the end of this post.

Cardstock:

Crumb Cake

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

Cherry Cobbler

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

Shaded Spruce

  • cut at 3 1/2" x 4 1/2"

Copper Foil Sheets

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

Whisper White

  • cut at 2" x 3"
  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"  this is for the inside of the card

Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper

  • cut four at 1" x 3 1/4"

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up!

The sentiment is from the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set which is the annual catalog and the designer series paper, Joyous Noel,  is from the Holiday catalog.  I used Shaded Spruce ink which coordinates perfectly along with the Copper Foil paper and the Merry Merlot & Copper Reversible Ribbon.  I think that is the of the main reasons I love Stampin' Up!  Everything coordinates!  The designer series paper goes with the stamp set, all the colors are the same.  Whether it is cardstock, ribbon, embellishments, markers, watercolor pencils and Blends.  I never have to worry about if I have the right colors for any of my project.  I know I do!

Winter Woods (CT#164)

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Winter Woods stamp set #147661, Watercolor Pencils #141709,  Frost White Shimmer Paint #147046, CASEing Tuesday, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman




Do you ever have those days where everything you try, nothing works.  Well, last night and this morning, it is just that.  I have had to take 50 pictures of the card above and none of them are turning out.  I am doing my lighting the same as always, using my iphone like I always do and it keeps coming out grainy or blue or a pink tint.  I have tried every light I can think of, no lights, it doesn't matter.  So the above picture is not the greatest picture and for that I apologize.  I am going to try again later today and see if it helps and if it does, I will put the new picture in.  Now, on with the post I had ready for you.


When I first saw the Winter Woods stamp set in the holiday catalog it went immediately on my wish list.  I couldn't wait to get it and start using it.  When I saw the inspiration card for CASEing Tuesday this week I knew I wanted to use this stamp set.  In the inspiration card they used Watercolor pencils, which I haven't used in a while, so I was excited to use them.  I used the Pacific Point and Basic Gray pencils on this card. 

Here is our inspiration card for this week:

40096962_10214130891120667_619954640569499648_n

On my card I first lightly put the basic gray on the bottom of the Whisper White cardstock and then went even lighter on the top.  I wanted to just do a very light base for the blue watercoloring.  When I colored with the Pacific Point pencil I barely pushed down on it.  I didn't want it dark, or medium for that matter, I wanted it to be light like the sky.

I stamped the trees with Stazon ink and then added the Shimmer paint. Using a sponge, on put the paint on the the area below the trees and then on the edges by the trees and the top edge.  To put the paint on the trees, I used a dauber and tapped it randomly.  I didn't want to cover all of the trees, I wanted it to look like snow was on them.  

After the paint dried, I stamped the sentiment using Stazon ink.  I popped up the Balmy Blue layer and the white layer.  

To make this card you will need the following paper.  For a complete list of all the products I used, please see the end of this post.

Cardstock:

Black

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

Balmy Blue

  • cut at 3" x 5 1/4"

Whisper White

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

 

I had my holiday catalog kick off class on Saturday.  I took pictures before, but didn't take any during the class.  I really need to get better at taking pictures.  I didn't even take pictures of my pumpkin cookies I made.  I have to admit, they turned out great.  Below are some pictures before everyone came.

Fall Friday 2018 Week #1

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Takeout Treats stamp set #147858, Toil & Trouble DSP #147531, Layering Oval Framelits #141706. 5/8" Burlap Ribbon #141487, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman
Welcome to my Fall Friday's!  Every Friday from today until October 26th, I will have a new fall project to share with you.  I will be making 3D projects, cards and a scrapbook page.  I am so excited to share these projects with you.  

Last weekend I was out looking for some new fall decorations for my house and came across these Belgian chocolate drenched Oreo cookies.  They are wrapped in cute foil papers.  I wanted to make a box for them with the new designer series paper from the holiday catalog.  

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Takeout Treats stamp set #147858, Toil & Trouble DSP #147531, Layering Oval Framelits #141706. 5/8" Burlap Ribbon #141487, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

Aren't they so cute? It is really easy to make this box and it only takes one sheet of cardstock.  Here are the directions:

  • cut paper at 8 1/2" x 9"
  • on 8 1/2" side score at 2 1/8" and 6 3/8"
  • on 9" side score at 2 1/8", 4 1/4", 6 3/8" and 8 1/2"
  • see diagram below on how to cut your paper

Here is another picture of what it will look like once you have cut the score lines and cut off the dark squares and how to put the box together.  

StampinUpOreoBoxStampinScrapperJoyceWhitman

I used the Toil and Trouble designer series paper to decorate the outside of the box. 

  • cut 2 pieces at 2" x 2"
  • cut 2 pieces at 2" x 4"

To make the tag I used the Takeout Treats stamp set and stamped it with Cajun Craze ink.  I cut out both layers (Early Espresso and Whisper White) with the Layering Oval Framelits.  I used one of the pieces I cut off from when I made the box for the Early Espresso piece and tied it on with a piece of Linen Thread.   I love to save paper when ever I can.  The bow was made using the 5/8" burlap ribbon.

Spirited Snowmen (CT #163)

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Spirited Snowmen stamp set #148072, Buffalo Check background stamp #147794, Blizzard Thinlits Die #147902, Frost White Shimmer Paint #147044, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

Did you see my post yesterday for the What's New at SU? blog hop?  If not check it out at Spirited Snowmen.   There were so many beautiful projects!  I can't wait to make some of them! I did the same technique on this card as I did on the card I posted for the blog hop yesterday.  This technique is called Ink Block technique and is very easy to do.  There is a little trick to getting the colors to blend, but I will explain that further down on my post.  

I made this card for my CASEing Tuesday challenge this week.  Here is the card that is our inspiration:

40049823_10215871617600308_6467511640085495808_n (1)

This post is going to be a little long as I got a lot of emails and comments about how I made it.  I am happy to share the directions with you, so here they are: 

  • stamp the 4" x 5 1/4" Whisper White with the Buffalo Check background stamp using Balmy Blue ink

On a different piece of 4" x 5 1/4" Whisper White paper you are going to stamp your background for the snowman.  To do this you will:

  • take the Balmy Blue ink pad and ink up one half of an "E" clear block.  The easiest way to do this is to hold the block in your left hand and then have the ink pad in your right hand and tap it on the block.  You want to make sure you are putting a lot of ink on it.
  • do the same thing on the other end of the block with Smoky Slate ink
  • using the Spritzer (with water in it) you will spray the block (with the ink on it) about 4-5 times 

This is the little tip I have for you.  Make sure you are putting on enough water, but not too much to make it drip.  It took me numerous attempts to finally figure out what I wasn't getting the look I wanted.  If you stamp it and have white spots, that means you don't have enough water on it.  I also learned that if you put too much water on it, it will drip and leave drip marks on your image.  

  • once you spritzed it with the water, you will flip over your block and push it hard on your paper. 

You will see it blend together through your block.  It is so neat to watch it do that!  You now need to let it dry completely.  You can use a heating tool if you want or wait about 10-15 minutes.  This is when I am working on other aspects of the card, such as cutting out the snowflake and getting my stamp and ink ready to stamp.

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Spirited Snowmen stamp set #148072, Buffalo Check background stamp #147794, Blizzard Thinlits Die #147902, Frost White Shimmer Paint #147044, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

The next step is adding the White Frost shimmer paint.

  • I used an old block I had, one I didn't care if it got messed up, and poured about 2-3 drops of shimmer paint on it.  I then used a sponge and tapped the paint all over the stamped image.  I then blended it all together to give it a real shiny look and then let it dry again. I did use shimmer paint on my snowflake too. 
  • after it is dry then you can stamp your image and sentiment.  I used Stazon ink as I wanted a real crisp look and I knew it would stay on.
  • add your other layers to the card base (I used Stampin Dimensionals under the black layer),  stamped image and then your embellishments last.

This isn't a hard technique, actually it is very easy.  The hardest thing is learning how much water to put on it.  I would suggest to practice a few times on copy paper first, before you use your good Whisper White cardstock.

I tried to get a picture so you could see how shiny it is, but I just couldn't get it to come out.  You can see it a little on the bottom by the snowflake.  It is really pretty in the person.  

I hope these directions will help you when you try to do this technique.  I love it so much, I want to keep doing it.  LOL

I am so excited that you are joining us for our blog hop today!  We are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrator from around the world who are Hoppin’ With Exciting Ideas to share with you!  Today we will feature products from the Holiday Stampin’ Up! Catalog. I know you will find a lot of wonderful ideas shared by all the demonstrators.  

I love, love, love snowmen!  If you ever saw my house at Christmas time you would know right away.  I even keep them up until the beginning of February.  After all, it is still technically winter.  LOL  The stamp set I chose to use is the Spirited Snowmen and the sentiment is from the Timeless Tidings stamp set.  

I did a couple of fun and easy techniques on this card.  The first one I did is called the Ink Block technique and then I covered it with the Frost White shimmer paint, which is also in the new Holiday catalog.  Since this is a blog hop and I don't want to make this post too long, I will write out the directions soon and post them on here for how I made this card.

It is hard to see the shimmer on the card in the above photo, but here is a better picture.

Sheltering Tree

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Sheltering Tree stamp set #137163, Sparkle Embossing Folder #141468, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gives, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects, go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

At my Stamp Camps this month I featured the Sheltering Tree stamp set.  I haven't used this stamp set in a very long time and I thought I needed to give it life again.  I wanted to do different cards with different techniques.  I went to Pinterest to see what I could find and this was one of the cards I found.  I can't find it back, so I don't know who originally created this card.  Thank you to the creator for sharing your beautiful card.

To begin making this card, you  are going to stamp your images on the small piece of Whisper White cardstock.  The tree is stamped with Crumb Cake ink and the tree leaves are stamped with Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive.  When you stamp the leaves, you are going to first stamp with the Pear Pizzazz and then with the Old Olive.  When you stamp with the Old Olive ink you will want to turn the stamp just a little so you are not stamping right on top of the Pear Pizzazz.  You want to be able to see both colors and this will make the tree look fuller too.

The grass and flowers are stamped using the Old Olive and the flower buds are stamped with Rich Razzleberry ink.  I am not sure if you saw the swing or not, but that is stamped in Soft Suede ink.

You are going to use the Layering Circle Framelits to cut out your circle in the Rich Razzleberry cardstock.  After you have finished cutting, then it is time to emboss the same paper with the Sparkle Embossing Folder.  

To make sure everything is lined up correctly, before you put any adhesive on any of your cardstock you are going to do a trial run.  Lay your stamped white piece of paper on your table and then line up where you want the the Rich Razzleberry piece to go.  This is where you can see if you need to trim your piece of white paper before you adhere it. 

Once you have everything lined up, put adhesive (I used Snail adhesive) around the circle on the back of the Rich Razzleberry piece.  With the white stamped paper on your table, lay the top layer over it and press it down.  Then take your ribbon and wrap it around the Rich Razzleberry cardstock, tie a knot and adhere all of this to a card base made from Crumb Cake cardstock.

Cardstock:

Crumb Cake

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

Rich Razzleberry

Whisper White Cardstock

  • cut at 3 1/2" x 3 1/2"

On my inside piece of paper, I stamped flowers along the bottom and then I did the same thing on the bottom left hand side of my envelope.  On the envelope I just did a little bit in the corner, but you could easily go all along the bottom edge if you wanted too.

Today is the day that Mark is helping Erica move!  I had to take him to the airport this morning at 3:45am!  It's a good thing I am use to getting up early everyday.  He will get to Erica's around 10:30am and then they will get the moving truck and start loading.  They will be driving part of the way back to Ohio today and finish driving the rest of the way tomorrow.  

Then the fun begins!  We will be unloading the truck and unpacking all of her stuff.  I am sure glad that none of us have to work on Monday.  However, Monday will definitely be a day of labor in our house!
