Eastern Palace Thank You

stampin up, Stampin' Up! Eastern Beauty stamp set #143675, Eastern Palace Specialty DSP #144147, Eastern Medallions Thinlits #143725. created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

There are so many different looks you can get with the Eastern Medallions, this is just one of them.  I paired this with the Eastern Palace Designer Series Paper and the Thick Whisper White Cardstock.  

To make this card you will need the following products:

Thick Whisper White Cardstock #140272

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

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • 3 1/4" x 3 1/4"
  • scrap for 1 3/8" circle

Dapper Denim Cardstock #141414

  • cut at 3 1/4" x 4 1/4"
  • scrap for 1 1/2" circle

Eastern Palace Speciality Designer Series Paper #144147

  • cut at 1" x 5 1/4"
  • cut at 3" x 4" 
  • cut at 3" x 3"
  • cut at 3 1/4" x 3 1/4" for the circle

When you go to cut the white piece of paper with the medallions you can cut everything at one time, using all three framelits.  I used two from the Eastern Medallions and the largest circle from the Layering Circle Framelits.  See picture below.  

Fullsizeoutput_1248

To adhere the piece you cut I put adhesive on the center only.  All the circles are adhered together with snail adhesive and then I used a dimensional  to adhere it to the card front.  

The sentiment is stamped using Lemon Lime Twist ink and cutting it out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  I love these framelits.  They really add a lot to your projects. I used the 1 1/2" circle punch to punch out the Dapper Denim circle.  I also used the Triple Banner Punch for the banner made from the Eastern Palace DSP.

I have a lot of exciting news to share with everyone!  I am not sure where to start.  This has been an exciting week, but also an emotional one.  Lets start with the good news.  

Last week I received an email from Split Coast Stampers (this is an awesome website for inspiration, tutorials and more) asking if I would like to be part of their Creative Crew.  When they are looking for people to be on this crew they look at the post you have put on their website and your blog.  I am very honored that they thought my creations were good enough to be on their crew.  I found yesterday that one of my good friends from Iowa is also going to be on the Creative Crew.  We are going to have so much fun!

I will be participating from September through the end of December. I will be posting my creations here, Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest.  

I would like to welcome Brittany and Carol to my team, the Joyful Butterflies!  I am so excited they have chosen me to be their upline. They are going to love being a part of the Stanpin' Up! family!

My emotions have been going a little crazy this past week and especially this weekend.  Erica is getting everything packed as she is moving to Michigan on Thursday.  I got believe we are going to be empty nesters.  I know we are suppose to raise them to be independent, intelligent, hardworking, kind, loving adults, but I really wish we wouldn't have done our job so well. I told both of the girls, could you have not picked any further away from each other.   Emily lives Texas and Erica will be in Michigan.  I told Mr. Wonderful that we need to move to Tennessee that way we would be in the middle.  LOL  

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope everyone has a spectacular Sunday!

Carols of Christmas Sneak Peek

stampin up, Stampin' Up! Carols of Christmas stamp set #144804, Card Front Builder Framelits, Stitched Shapes Frameltis #145372, Ruffled Embossing Folder #143699, Silver and Dazzling Diamond Glitter Paper, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

One of the benefits to being a demonstrator is getting to see and preorder products before they become available to the public.  The Carols of Christmas stamp set and matching framelits called, Card Front Builder, is one such stamp set.  The Holiday Catalog will become available to the public on September 1st, but as a demo I will get to see it on August 1st.  This stamp set, however, Stampin' Up! is releasing to all of you on August 1st!!!  Yay!!!  This is another one of those stamps that I when I saw it I knew I had to order it.  I had to wait a little bit before I could order it.  I didn't want a package to be sitting on our step while we were in Texas.  So, I was patient and waiting until we got home.  Can I tell you, that was hard to do.  I was seeing all these wonderful samples online I wanted to make and couldn't.  

Deborah Newman, a fellow demonstrator, made this card and was so gracious to let me CASE (create and share everything) it.  Didn't she do an awesome job.  It is more stunning in person than I could get on this picture.  My customers coming to my Christmas Card Class in August will get the fun of making this as one of our cards.  

To make this card, you will need the following products:

Smoky Slate Cardstock #131202

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

Night of Navy Cardstock #100867

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

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

Daffodil Delight Cardstock #119683

  • scrap piece

Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper #135315

  • cut at 1" x 3 7/8"

Silver Glimmer Paper #135314

  • cut at 2 1/4" x 3 1/2"

You are going to use the framelit with the moon and stars on the top of  your Night of Navy cardstock.  I then adhered the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper to the back of it to make the stars shine and sparkle.  I then used a small piece of Daffodil Delight scrap paper and cut out the moon and adhered it with the Multi Purpose Glue.  

When you use the Whisper White paper with the Ruffled Embossing Folder, you do not have to spritz it with water.  With the paper being thinner that normal cardstock, you do not have to spritz it with water to get the 3D effect.  If you use the Thick Whisper White cardstock, you would have to spritz it with water first.  When I put the paper into the embossing folder, I made sure that the bottom of the paper was right below one of the wave lines.  I went up to the second line above the bottom wave line on my paper and trimmed the paper right above line.  This gave it the look of a snow bank.  I then added Wink of Stella on the curvy lines so it looks like the snow is sparkling in the moonlight.  

The trees are popped with dimensionals.  This is a perfect place to use the new mini dimensionals for the top of the trees.   They fit perfect.  

On the inside of the card and on the envelope I used the Merry Christmas sentiment from the Hang Your Stocking stamp set.  

Isn't this card beautiful?  Wait until you see the whole stamp set and framelits.  I am sure you are going to want them too.

This is a picture of the snow so you can see how I added the Wink of Stella to the waves to make them look like snow banks.

Erica got the job!!!!!  We are so excited for her!  I can't believe my baby is leaving and moving to Michigan.  I know she will do great and will be around my family, but this sure isn't easy! I am going to miss her a lot.  Mark and I will become empty nesters next week.  Yes, I said next week.  She is moving next Thursday.  Needless to say, our life is going to be a little busy the next few days.  

We are not able to take all of her stuff up next week due to both my husbands and my schedule, so we are taking the majority of her things to her in September.  This works out great because she will be staying with my mom and sister for a while.  We didn't think she would be moving up this fast, but everything happens for a reason.  

I have been having fun playing with the new Carols of Christmas stamp set.  I worked on my Christmas cards for my classes on August 1st and 4th over the weekend.  I can't believe it is time to be working on Christmas projects already.  

Do any of you suffer from Migraines?  I usually don't, but the last few days have been awful.  It started on Wednesday with a slight headache, but on Thursday it became a full migraine. You know the ones that even make your eyes hurt.  I usually don't go to bed before midnight, but on that day I was sleeping by 7:45pm.  My headache has come and gone all weekend and I still have it today.  I think it might be related to the weather.  We have had thunder storms come through almost daily and they seem worse after the storm.  I just want them to go away!

Have a fabulous Monday!

Bright Wishes

stampin up, Stampin' Up! Bright wishes #143827, Watercolor Pencils #141709, Blender Pens #102845, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects, go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

I have to start by saying I must really like the card I posted yesterday. I realized last night that I also posted it in June.  Oh my goodness, I am not sure what happened there.  I have a pile of cards on my desk to put on my blog and some how that card was put in the wrong pile. Lately, that is how my life is going.  LOL  

I love to color so when I saw the Bright Wishes stamp set I knew I wanted it.  The sentiments in this stamp set are perfect for wishing people the best, wishes coming true, brighter days, how much you care and you're never too old to wish.  

I used the Watercolor Pencils and Blender Pens to color this card.  I ended up coloring quite a few of these using different colors for the flowers.  It is amazing how changing colors can totally change the look of a card. 

To make this card you will need the following products:

Berry Burst Cardstock #144243

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

Old Olive Cardstock #100702

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut at 3 3/4" x 5"

What colors would you use for your flowers?

CoffeeandChatStampinScrapperJoyceWhitman2

Since we got back from Texas, life has been even busier.  I thought life was going to slow down, boy was I wrong.  While we were away, Erica made the decision to move to Michigan to be around my family. I will admit, I am a little jealous.  She will be living with my niece, which is great, so she can help her out with expenses. 

We have been going through Erica's things trying to figure out what to take, what to leave home and what to get rid of.  You don't realize how much stuff you have until you start going through things.  I hate to see when I have to go through my craft room.  LOL

Erica is going to Michigan today for a job interview tomorrow.  If you get a chance, can you please say a little prayer for her.  I know she will do great.  

I told my girls could they possibly get any further apart?  Emily is in Texas and now Erica will be in Michigan.   Mark and I will have to get use to being empty nesters.  Our house is going to be so quiet.  

Mark and I are also going to start going through each room in the house as if we are downsizing and have to get rid of things.   Emily was telling me that she was reading an article about decluttering and you need to ask yourself two questions.  Does the item bring you joy and if it was in a store today, would you buy it?  Great questions!  I think I am going to be getting rid of a lot of stuff.  

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you have a terrific Thursday!

Jar of Love Sympathy Workshop Card

stampin up, Stampin' Up! Jar of Love #141587, Rose Wonder #140697, designed by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

I had a workshop for one of customers and she wanted me to use the Jar of Love stamp set.  She also told me she needed a sympathy card so if I could combine the two she would love it.  So I created a card using the Jar of Love stamp set along with Rose Wonder.  She loved it!

To make this card you will need the following products:

Night of Navy Cardstock #100867

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

Pool Party Cardstock #122924

  • cut at 3 3/4" x 5"

Wild Wasabi Cardstock #108641

  • cut at 3 3/4" x 5"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut at 2 1/4" x 4 1/4"

The flowers were stamped with Marina Mist and Night of Navy ink. When you stamp the water in the jar, I first stamped it off on a scrap piece of paper and then stamped my card.  The sentiment was stamped with the Night of Navy ink also. 

Below is a picture of the inside of the card.  I also stamped the flowers on the envelope to match.

A Little Wild Baby Card

stampin up, Stampin Up! A Little Wild stamp set #144344, Little Loves Framelits #143743, Ruffled 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #143699, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

I needed to make two baby cards, one for my niece and one for one of my customers, who is also a good friend of mine.  Patty, my niece had a little boy and Brittany had a little girl.  I was a little late getting these out, the babies were already a month old, because I was waiting for this stamp set to come.  The minute I saw this stamp set, I knew I wanted to get it.  

I was on Pinterest and saw this lay out created by Nadine's Stampin Club and fell in love.  I loved it so much, I made 3 different cards using the same layout.  You can see all three at the bottom of this post.  

One thing I like about this stamp set is you can use it for other things besides a baby card.  You could use it for an older child, someone who loved elephants (like my daughter, Emily), lions or bears.  You can also use them for other occasions.   

At OnStage in April there was a presentation done using this stamp set and they wrote the following quotes on the inside of the card. Elephant - I am a little behind.  Happy Belated Birthday   Bear - please come back and stamp with me again  Lion - thanks for having my back.  Don't you just love them!

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"
  • cut at 1" x 3 1/8"

So Saffron Cardstock #105118

  • cut at 3 1/8" x 4 3/8"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

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

I used the Ruffles 3D Embossing Folder on the So Saffron cardstock. One thing you need to do with the paper when you use the 3D embossing folders is spritz it with water.  You want to dampen the fibers of your paper, it will give it a better impression.  

I stamped my image with Chocolate Chip ink and then used the Watercolor Pencils to color in my image. To get the blended in look I used the Blender Pens.  Below is a picture of the bear so you can see it better on how I did the coloring.

This is the inside of the card.  Did you notice the back of the bear on the left hand side.  In this stamp set your bears are connected, the front and back images, so you have to cut them apart.  There is matching framelits, Little Love, and you can get it as a bundle and save 10%.

I used the back on the inside of the card.  I stamped the bee hive and bees on the card and on the envelope.

We had a wonderful time in Texas.  We got her all moved into her new apartment.  Oh my goodness, it is so beautiful.  I love all the natural light she gets from all of the windows.  Her pool area looks like it is at a resort.  

While we were there, we also got to do some fun things.  One day we went to the Houston Zoo, which was so nice.  Emily, Erica and myself got to feed the giraffes.  I loved it!  They are so graceful and gentle when they take the lettuce out of your hand.  Below is a picture of the tiger I took.  Look how beautiful his eyes are.

Heartland Card Using Glossy Paper

stampin up, Stampin' Up Heartland stamp set #143892, Glossy Paper #144240, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D  projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

When I heard that Stampin' Up! was bringing back the Glossy White Paper I was so happy.  I found out the great news when I opened my box for being an OnStage Display Stamper.  I also got the Heartland stamp set, which used on this card.  I used the brayer to put the ink on it to give it a blended look.  

 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"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

Glossy White Cardstock #144240

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

The first thing I did was punch out a 1 1/4" circle out of a piece of scrap paper and put a little bit of snail on the back of it.  Keep the piece of paper you punch your circle out of.  We are going to use it a little bit later.  I then tapped the adhesive on the back of the circle with my finger to get some of the stickiness off the adhesive.  Then I put it where I wanted the sun to be on the glossy paper.  

I used our Sponge Brayers to put the color on the paper.  I started with the Soft Sky ink on the top to about the middle of the paper. You can just roll over the 1 1/4" circle you adhered previously.  I then added the Pear Pizzazz ink and I went down to about an inch from the bottom.  I finished it out with the Chocolate Chip ink on the bottom.  Remember you can always add ink to your projects, but you can't take it away.  Start out light and then gradually add more ink to you get the color you want.  

Remove the circle and place the scrap piece of paper you have from cutting out the circle.   Take a Sponge Dauber and use the Daffodil Delight ink and fill in the sun.  I stamped the barn and the sentiment with our Basic Black Archival Ink.

This week we are in Texas helping Emily move into her new apartment and enjoying the Houston area..   I am so excited to see her again.  It will be very hard to say goodbye after seeing her for 3 weeks.  Emily was home for two weeks in June and then went back to Texas last Monday and now we are visiting her in Texas.  I sure miss having her around.  Our house is going to be so quiet when we get back.

Thank you for visiting my blog today and I hope you have a great day!

Ho, ho, ho! Our Christmas in July promotion makes it easier than ever to sign up to be a demonstrator! You  will receive a FREE Essentials Gift Pack including Paper Snips, SNAIL Adhesive, Grid Paper, two D Blocks (one for you and one for a stamping friend!), and a Bone Folder. That’s an added value of $52! And to give you a taste of the perks of being a demonstrator, Stampin' Up! will also include the Carols of Christmas Stamp Set from the holiday catalog for FREE ($20 value)! With so many basic items provided for you, you will be able to get your brand, new business off to a fast start—and spend your Starter Kit dollars on things like your favorite stamp sets and accessories!

I have to say that 4 years ago I made the decision to become a Stampin' Up! demonstrator and it has been one of the best decisions I have ever made.  The best part, all the friends I have made. I have friends from all over the world.  How cool is that?! I have been a demonstrator for other companies and I have to say this is the first company where so many other demonstrators are willing to help each other.  I feel very blessed to be a part of this amazing Stampin' Up! family.  

I would love to have you as a member of my Joyful Butterflies Team! If you would like to join my team, have questions or just want to talk about the promotions, please email me at stampinscraper13@gmail.com.    

I hope everyone has a fabulous July and weekend.  We are off to Texas to spend the week with Emily and help her move into her new apartment.  I can't wait to see it and spend a relaxing week with my family.
