New 2017/2018 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog will be here tomorrow!!!!

stampin up, Stampin' Up! 2017/2018 Annual Catalog, Stampin Scrapper, Stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

The new catalog will be here tomorrow!!!  

Oh My Goodness!!!  Wait until you see it!  It is absolutely beautiful. My list is already very long of all the new products I want.  You are going to love the new 2017/2019 In Colors.  I wonder what your favorite will be?  

I will be handing out my catalogs at Stamp Camp on Friday and at my Open House on Saturday.  If you are unable to make it to either one and would like a catalog please let me know.   PLEASE NOTE:  I can only ship the catalogs in the USA

You can get the catalog 2 ways:

  • If you have ordered at least $50 (in one order this can't be accumulative) from me in the past year from June 1, 2016 through May 31, 2017 I will send it to you free.  You should have already received it, but if not please let me know.  
  • Catalogs are free, however, you will have to pay the $6.95 for the priority shipping (I do accept PayPal).  You can order it through Stampin' Up!, but you would have to pay for the catalog plus shipping and tax.

 Catalog Details:

  • the catalog is effective from June 1, 2017 - May 31, 2018 starting at 2:00pm ET 
  • the Daisy punch will not be available for purchase on June 1st.  The reason is that it has been so popular with the demonstrators (that is one of the many benefits of being a demonstrator, you get to order the new stuff early) that they have almost already ran out.  They ordered 10,000 of the punches, which is usually more than enough for a whole year, and we, the demonstrators, ordered 7,200 of them in the first two weeks of preorder.  They are expecting a huge shipment in by June 26th and another shipment in in July.  Trust me, this punch is worth waiting for.  It is my favorite new punch from the preorder list.  
  • all the stamp cases, pictured below, were carried over, but they were left out of the new catalog.  I cut the picture out of my old catalog and added it to my new catalog.  They should be on the bottom of page 217 in the new catalog.

Yesterday I was working on one of  my projects for my open house and the kids wanted to play too.  I had a bunch of little pieces of paper that were perfect for a little book.    It is was so fun!  Beckett made me a little book and  I asked him if I could put it out at my open house. You should have seen his little eyes shine.  It was so precious! Here are some pictures of the book and my angels.

Aren't they just the cutest little things you ever did see?  They just melt my heart!  I am so blessed.

Here is Beckett's book

My favorite retiring products card

stampin up, Stampin' Up! Kinda Eclectic stamp set item #135350, Papillon Potpourri stamp set #123759, Flower Shop stamp set #130942, Petite Petals stamp set #133155, designed by Stampin Scrapper, please see more card and gift ideas at stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

This card is full of retiring stamp sets, but there is a new product on it.  Do you see it?  I used the retiring stamp sets Kinda Eclectic, Papillon Potpourri and Petite Petals.  The Flower Shop stamp set is in the new catalog along with the new beautiful 1/4" Double-Stitched Ribbon in Daffodil Delight. 

To make this card fast and easy I used 3 punches, the Elegant Butterfly and Petite Petals, which are retiring, and the Pansy punch.  I just love punches, how about you?

To make this card you will need the following products:

Pear Pizzazz Cardstock #131201

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

Dapper Denim Cardstock #141414

  • cut at 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"
  • scrap for the butterfly

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut 2 at 4" x 5 1/4"
  • pieces for the flowers and butterfly

The flowers and butterfly are great for using up your scraps of your Whisper White cardstock.  It makes me happy when I can use a bunch of my scraps of paper.  I hate to waste the paper, so I use it until there is just a little bit left.  

The little flowers are adhered to the big flower with snail adhesive and then they are popped with a dimensional.  The Dapper Denim butterfly is attached to the white paper with snail too.  I then used glue dots on the center of the stamped butterfly.  I wanted the wings to look like they were flying.     

CoffeeandChatStampinScrapperJoyceWhitman2Do you have fun plans this weekend?  We have a very busy weekend in our household.  Mr. Wonderful is headed to Texas today to help Emily pack up her apartment and her classroom.  She is moving to a new apartment in July and has to pack up her whole classroom and take everything home.  Needless to say, they will be getting a storage unit this weekend.  Erica is busy working all weekend, so if you are in the area stop into her work and say hi.  

I have different commitments all weekend, but most of my weekend will be in my stampin studio!  Nobody will be home, so I will be able to get a lot done for my two stamp camps on Thursday and Friday next week and my open house next Saturday.  I am so excited to be able to just stamp, stamp and stamp some more.  

We have a crazy busy June and July this year, so I am going to try and get a lot of things done ahead of time.  

If you are available on Saturday, please stop in for my open house for the new catalog!  It will be from 9:00am-12:00pm on June 3rd.  We will be making two make and takes, door prizes, samples of some of the new products and food.  I am hoping Mr. Wonderful will make the food for me again.  He is such a good cook.

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope everyone has a fun and safe weekend!

In The Meadow

stampin up, Stampin' Up! In The Meadow #140754, Wood Textures DSP #144177,  designed and 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 I made for my display for OnStage back in April.  I was given the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack and I added the In The Meadow stamp set.  This was such a fun card to make as I used the masking technique.  

This card is another one where I used old and new products together. The stamp set, In The Meadow, is going to retire at the end of them month, but the designer series paper will be in the new annual catalog.  

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"
  • cut at 2 3/4" x 5"

Very Vanilla Cardstock #101650

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

Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack #144177

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

I had mentioned earlier that I had used the masking technique on this card.  With the masking technique you cover up the section you don't want ink on.  On this card I used the 1 inch circle punch and punched out a piece of post it note.  You will want to make sure you punch out the section that has the sticky on it.  This will help keep the paper in place.  

I took the piece that I had punched out the circle out of and laid it down on my small piece of Very Vanilla cardstock where I wanted the sun to go.  I then sponged inside of the circle with So Saffron and very light with the Calypso Coral inks.  I just went on the edge of the circle with the Calypso Coral and did not apply very much pressure.  I wanted it to be very light.  

I took that off and put on the circle that I had punched out and stuck it on top of the sun.  I then sponged around the sun and other places on the paper with Crumb Cake and Early Espresso inks.  I removed the circle when I was finished and stamped my images with our Basic Black Archival ink.  To highlight areas of the mountains and trees I used our Chalk Marker.  

I am in love with the new Wood Textures DSP and I think you will be too.  There are so many different colors for white washed to real dark. There is also a couple of pieces like the one I used on the above card.  

Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!

Retiring Hello

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Falling Flower #139556, Hello You Thinlits #137363, Stitched Shapes Framelits #145372, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

I was online the other day and saw this card on Connie Stewart's blog (she is a very talented demonstrator) and emailed her immediately. This card was perfect for my stamp camp where we were focused on retiring products, but I added a new one on each card.  

On this card the retiring products are the Hello You Framelits, Blossom Bunch Punch and the Rhinestones.  Do worry, the rhinestones are returning they have been reformulated.  I haven't seen them yet, so I can't tell you how.  The new products I used is the Berry Burst cardstock I cut the hello out on and Powder Pink cardstock and ink.

To make this card you will need the following products:

Mint Macaron Cardstock #138337

  • cut at4 1/4" x 11" score at 5 1/2"

Powder Pink Cardstock - this will be available on June 1st

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

Berry Burst Cardstock  - this will be available on June 1st

  • cut at 1 3/4" x 3 1/4"

Vellum Cardstock #101856

  • cut 2 at 2 1/4" x 3 1/4"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut at 3 3/4" x 5" for the front of the card
  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4" for the inside of the card

So you can't see the adhesive on the vellum flower, I used a glue dot between each layer and put a rhinestone in the center of it.  Then for the oval behind the hello, I rolled a glue dot so it was narrow and put it on the back where the paper from the hello was.  That way from the front you can not see any glue dots.  

On the inside of the card and on the envelope I stamped the top part of the stamp from the Falling Flowers stamp set.  

CoffeeandChatStampinScrapperJoyceWhitman2On Saturday my friend Cathy came over to stamp with our new products.  We had so much fun!!!  I am in love with the new This Little Piggy stamp set.  They are so cute!  

Cathy was so sweet to bring her stamp sets that I hadn't purchased yet and now I want to order them too.  I think I might have to start going to SA (Stamping Anonymous).  Hi, my name is Joyce and I have an addiction to buying stamp sets.  Is anyone else going with me?  

We are both having our open house for the new annual catalog on June 3rd that we concentrated working on projects for that.  It was so nice to sit and stamp with a dear friend.  We are already making plans on doing it again soon.  

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and has a great week!

Tin of Cards/Gorgeous Grunge Card

Stampin Up Stampin' Up! Tin of Cards #138946, Gorgeous Grunge #130517,  Daisy Delight #143669, Daisy Punch #143713, 1/2" Circle Punch #119869, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3 D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

I have used both the Gorgeous Grunge and Tin of Cards stamp sets so much that I think I might be wearing them out.  I will definitely miss both of these stamp sets.   They were my go to stamp sets when I would design cards.  

Did you notice the Daisy? Really, how could you not!  LOL  This is a new punch and I absolutely love it!   I have used it so much already.  I like mixing the old with the new at this time of year.  

To make this card you will need the following products.  

Pool Party Cardstock #122924

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

Pear Pizzazz Cardstock #131201

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

Powder Pink Cardstock #144244 (this will not be available until June 1, 2017)

  • 2 3/4" x 5 1/2"

Basic Black Cardstock #121045

  • scrap for 1/2" circle

Whisper White Card Stock #100730

  • cut at 3 3/4" x 5" for the front of the card
  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4" for the inside of the card

I used 3 images from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set.  I started off stamping the one image in Pear Pizzazz, then the small dots with Pool Party and finishing up with the bigger stamp with lots of little dots in Powder Pink.  The sentiment is from the Tin of Cards stamp set and is stamped with the Basic Black Archival ink.  

To make the flower I punched out two of the flowers using the Daisy Punch.  I used snail adhesive to adhere them and then used a dimensional to attach it to my card.  I added a 1/2" circle using Basic Black cardstock.  

On the inside of the card and on the envelope I used a stamp that has 3 little daisies and stamped it with Powder Pink Ink on the bottom of each.

Traveler Masculine Card

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Traveler stamp set #134513, Gorgeous Grunge stamp set #130517, Birthday Blossoms stamp set #139471, Thick Very Vanilla Baker's Twine #138411, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to Stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

 

I needed a card for Mr. Wonderful's brother, so I went through the retiring stamp sets to see which one would be perfect for him.  I decided on the Traveler along with the Gorgeous Grunge and Birthday Blossoms stamp sets.  I am going to miss the first two stamp sets as they are retiring at the end of the month.  The Birthday Blossoms stamp set will still be in the new catalog.  Yay!

To make this card you will need the following products:

Early Espresso Cardstock #119686

  • cut 2 at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4" one for front of the card and one for inside the card
  • cut at 3" x 3 1/4"

Very Vanilla Cardstock #101650

  • cut 2 at 4" x 5 1/4" one for front of the card and one for inside the card
  • cut at 2 3/4" x 3"
  • cut at 2" x 2 1/4" for the suitcase

The first thing to do to make this card is to use the strip stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge set and Crumb Cake ink.  I first inked up my stamp and then stamped off before stamping on to my paper. Stamped off means you will first stamp on a scrap piece of paper and then onto your paper you are using for your card.  This gives it a lighter stamped image.  Stamp the strips all the way down and don't worry that they don't go to the edge.  Then, stamp the train onto the medium sized Very Vanilla paper and the suitcase on the smallest paper.  

I then took a Stampin' Sponge and inked it up with Crumb Cake ink and sponged all the sides of the paper with the lines and train on it.  If you want to you can use it on the suitcase too.  After you fussy cut the suitcase I recommend you go around the edges lightly.  This is so you don't see any of the areas that you might not have cut up to the stamped image.

I used dimensionals to put on my big Early Espresso paper because of the Thick Baker's Twine.  Otherwise, it will have a bump under the twine. I also used dimensionals on the suitcase.  

On the inside of the card I used the "Happy Birthday" stamp from the Birthday Blossoms stamp set.  I also, stamped the suitcase on the left hand corner and on my envelope.  

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope everyone has a Terrific Thursday!

Thoughts and Prayers #127805, Woodland Embossing Folder #139673, 1/4" Copper Trim, Stazon On Ink #101406, Gold Embossing Powder #109129, Copper Embossing Powder #141636, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

I saw this card by Melissa Kerman on Pinterest when I was looking for different techniques to do for my class.  I thought, oh my, I could never make that.  But, I did!!!  The technique is called tarnished foil and it is not difficult to make, just quite a few steps.  I found a wonderful step by step tutorial on splitcoaststampers.com by Melissa on how to make this card.  Click HERE for her directions.  

I don't usually send you to another website for directions, but she does such a wonderful job and has a video with it.  I haven't started doing videos yet, and with this card I think it is very helpful.  

Here is another picture of two of them that I made and neither one of them is the same.  They will all look just a little different, which is something I like.  

 

http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/impressionsoftarnishedfoil/

To make the card you will need the following products:

Basic Black Cardstock #121045

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

Soft Suede Cardstock #115318

  • cut at 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"

Crumb Cake Cardstock #120953

  • cut at 1 5/8" x 5 3/8"

Very Vanilla Cardstock #101650

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

Silver Foil Sheets #132178

  • cut at 3" x 3 3/4"

You probably have noticed a new product on this card.  It is the 1/4" Copper Trim that I wrapped around the card.  It is such a wonderful product.  

CoffeeandChatStampinScrapperJoyceWhitman2We had a busy weekend with the grand Randall's.  There parents were gone to a wedding so we got to spend the whole weekend with them.  We had so much fun!  We went to the park on Friday night and I am not sure who was the bigger kid, the kids or Mr. Wonderful.  We came home and had our movie and popcorn and off to bed!  

On Saturday we went to Sam's and they found this really neat sidewalk chalk kit.  There are pieces that look like ice cream.  Yum! They had a lot of fun playing with that and getting all dirty.  Isn't that what kids are suppose to do?  

For lunch we went to see Erica at work.  They thought that was the best thing ever,   Blysse, the youngest, had a hard time figuring out why Erica couldn't carry her around.  

On Sunday we took them to church with us and it was a special day for another one of my daycare angels.  Knox was dedicated!  What a perfect day, Mother's Day to do that.  He is just so precious!  

Here are some pictures of our fun weekend.
