Falling Flowers/Happy Birthday Gorgeous Birthday Card

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Falling Flowers stamp set #139556, Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set #143662, Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack #144131, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects, go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

One of my favorite things about Stampin' Up!, and there are many, is how everything coordinates.  This card is a great example of that. You have the designer series paper, cardstock, ribbon and ink all the same color.  There is no guessing, no worrying about if they all match and are the same hue of the color.  Everything matches perfectly.  I love that!!!

To make this card you will need the following products:

Fresh Fig Cardstock #144242

  • 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"

Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack #144131

  • cut at 1 3/4" x 5 1/4"

I used a stamp from the Falling Flowers stamp set for the floral design on the front of the card, inside the card and on the envelope.  I stamped all images using the Fresh Fig ink and colored in the floral designs using the Powder Pink Stampin Marker.

To tie everything together I used the 1/2' Finely Woven Ribbon in Fresh Fig which I cut at 6" and 7".

This is another simple card that you could get so many different looks with just changing the colors on this card.  You could use the Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink and Tranquil Tide colors.

Can you believe tomorrow is Halloween and then it will be November 1st?  I really need God to slow time down just a little bit for me.  One good thing is we will get an extra hour of sleep on Saturday night because of Daylight Savings.  I will take that little blessing!

I hope you have an awesome week and thank you for stopping by!

Fall Friday Week #9 Final Project

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! shadow box, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

I finally made my fall shadow box!  I have been wanting to make one of these for the last couple of years, but time just kept getting away from me.  I took a day or two and worked on just this and it was so much fun!  I haven't just played in my craft room for a long time and it was so nice.  I am usually crafting with a purpose, which I truly enjoy, and with this I just started making little squares to see what could I come up with.  

I used a lot of current product, but also some retired stamp sets.  The acorns in the upper left hand corner are colored with the new Stampin' Blends markers that will be available on November 1st.  All the printed paper paper is from the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper in the holiday catalog.  

Every time I look at this I pick a different square that is my favorite.  Which one is yours?  

Last December I shared with you the other two shadow boxes I had made for the Christmas season.   Here they are again, so you can see them all together.

It is so funny to go back and look at how I edited the photos and my old watermark.  Nothing like going right up to the edge of the projects.  LOL

Thank you for stopping by every Friday to check out my Fall Friday series.  I have had so much creating projects to share with all of you.  It means so much to me that you would take time out of your day to stop by.

On Monday, November 6th I will begin my Merry Christmas Monday series.  

Have a great weekend!

A Simple Christmas Card

stampin up, Stampin' Up! Sheet Music background stamp #143970, Lovely As A Tree stamp set #127793, Peace This Christmas stamp set #141570, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com

Do you want a simple Christmas card to make for your family and friends?  I think this card would be perfect for you.  

I first started with the Sheet Music background stamp using Crumb Cake ink.  To soften up the edges I used a sponge and the Crumb Cake ink.  The tree is from the Lovely As A Tree stamp set which I stamped on the left hand side and on the envelope using the Always Artichoke ink.  Using the same ink I stamped the sentiments from the Peace This Christmas stamp set on the front and inside of the card.  

To finish off the card I used Linen Thread at 11" and 16" to wrap around the card and make a double bow.  

To make this project you will need the following products:

Crumb Cake Cardstock #120953

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

Always Artichoke Cardstock #105119

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

Very Vanilla Cardstock #101650

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

On Friday I will have my final project to share with you to finish up my Fall Friday series.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to stop by.  I hope you have a terrific day!

Fall Friday 2017 Week #8

 

 

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Spooky Fun stamp set #144749, Painted Harvest stamp set #144783, Mini Pizza Boxes #144645, Everyday Label Punch #144668, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects, go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman
 

I can't believe it is week #8 already of my Fall Friday Series.  I have had so much fun creating projects to share with all of you.  Make sure you check back next week for the final project.  I have been wanting to make one of these for the last couple of years and finally made it. I can't wait to share it with you.

This week I decorated the pizza boxes that are in the holiday catalog. I haven't really played with them until this week and I am not sure what took me so long.  They are so stinkin' cute! For this project I decorated one as a halloween box with chocolate in it and the other one is more fall with eight 3 x 3 note cards and envelopes.  Stampin' Up! brought back the 3 x 3 envelopes, which I am so happy about.  

Did you notice on the box with the sunflowers on it, that I stamped right on the box!  It was so easy as the boxes come flat and then you fold them as you want to use them.  With them coming flat it is great for storing them.  You know what else is great?  They are food safe! So, you can put any homemade little treat inside the box and your food will be save.

To make the Halloween box you will need the following products:

Basic Black Cardstock #121045

  • cut 2 at 3 1/4" x 3 1/4"

Pumpkin Pie Cardstock #105117

  • cut at 3 1/8"x 3 1/8"
  • cut 4 at 7/8" x 3 3/8"
  • cut at 3" x 4" to punch out two labels

Spooky Night Designer Series Paper #144610

  • cut 2 at 3 x 3" one for the top and one for the inside
  • cut 4 at 3/4" x 3 1/4"

Whisper  White Cardstock #100730

  • cut at 2 x 3"

The pumpkins on the front are from a piece of the Spooky Night designer series paper and I fussy cut them out.  

The tag is from the Spooky Cat stamp set and punched out with the Everyday Label Punch from the Holiday catalog.  Below is a picture of how I did the orange pieces behind the tag.  I finished the tag off with the new Black Rhinestone Jewels that are also in the Holiday catalog.  I sure hope they carry these over to the annual catalog next year.  The tag and pumpkins are adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals and everything else is adhered with the Snail Adhesive.

StampinUpEverydayLabelPunch2017HolidayCatalogStampinScrapperJoyceWhitman

 

To make the Painted Harvest box you will need the following products:

Whisper White Thick Cardstock #140272

  • cut 8 at 3" x 6" score at 3"

Cajun Craze Cardstock #119684

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

Soft Suede Cardstock #115318

  • cut at 1" x 11"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut 8 at 2 3/4" x 2 3/4"
  • cut at 3 1/8" x 3 1/8"
  • cut at 2 1/2" x 8 1/2" this is for the flower and leaves on the front band

To give the flower on the band a little bit of sparkle I used Wink of Stella on it and the leaves.  I used Fast Fuse to adhere the band together and the flower and leaves on the band.  I wanted to make sure they stayed together as the band will be taken off and on.  

Here are some more pictures of the projects

It has been a wonderful week for me this week!  To start with on Tuesday I was promoted to Silver Elite with Stampin' Up!  I have been working really hard to get the promotion and I still can't believe I did it.  I was so happy I was crying and Mr. Wonderful asked why do women do that, cry when they are happy.  I told him that it was because that is the way God made us.  Now, I will be the first to admit, I cry at everything and I mean everything!  

Then on Wednesday night I had my first team meeting.  I would not have been promoted without these wonderful ladies.  I can't thank them enough and am so blessed to have each and everyone of them on my team, but more importantly as my friend.  They mean the world to me!  

I will admit I was so nervous about the meeting, I wanted everything to be perfect for them.  It went perfect and was so much fun!  We already have our next two meetings planned and  I can't wait!

Last Saturday was our 29th wedding anniversary, but it didn't work out for us to celebrate last weekend.   We are going to spend the day together and finish it off with going to a hockey game in Columbus. We both love to watch hockey, so I am really looking forward to it.  

Thank you for stopping by and I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Vintage Leaves Scrapbook Page

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

You are not going to believe where I got the inspiration for this scrapbook page.  I was in Kroger getting groceries and thought I would go check out the Halloween/Fall section.  You never know I might find something I just couldn't live without.  Oh My Goodness, I found exactly that.  Sitting there were two coffee cups with leaves on them.  What is so special about that you ask?  Let me tell you!   They were the same leaves as in our Vintage Leaves stamp set and in Stampin' Up colors!!  I almost shouted out loud with excitement when I found them. I think my husband at this time thought I had lost my mind.  LOL  

The colors were Fresh Fig, Crushed Curry, Tranquil Tide, Chocolate Chip and Cajun Craze.  I just couldn't believe it.  My first thought was, that would be such a pretty scrapbook page with all of those colors. Then my mind went crazy with ideas on how to use those colors together on other projects.  Below is a picture of the coffee cup.  Of course, I had to buy one.  You can never have too many coffee cups.  

  Fullsizeoutput_12e9

I wanted a fall saying on this page so I went to Google and read a bunch, I mean a bunch and this one caught my eye.  All the things I love about fall, right there.  It was perfect.  Here is a close up of the poem so you can read it better.

Fall Friday 2017 Week #7

stampin up, Stampin" Up! Sweet Home Stamp Set #140936, Labels To Love Stamp Set #144967, Spooky Cat Stamp Set #144749, Home Sweet Home Thinlits #140279, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

Look how cute this Halloween layout turned out!  Every quarter I have my Scrap Along class where we make 3 two page scrapbook layouts with different themes.  Our themes at my class last Saturday were Halloween, Fall and Thanksgiving.  I always have so much fun creating pages for these classes.  

To make this layout I used three different stamp sets, Sweet Home from the annual catalog and Labels to Love and Spooky Cat from the 2017 Holiday catalog.  All the products I used on these two pages are in the current catalogs (annual and holiday), except the paper I used to make the house.  The paper was in the 2016 Holiday catalog called Halloween Night Speciality Designer Series Paper.  You could use Smoky Slate paper and if you wanted our Brick Wall Embossing Folder.  Do you see the Pick a Pattern Washi Tape on the bottom of each page? How many ghost do you see peeking around the corners?

To make this page you will need the following products:

Pumpkin Pie 12 x 12 Cardstock #145483

  • you will need 2 sheets

Basic Black Cardstock #121045

  • cut 6 of 4 1/4" x 6 1/4"
  • scraps for the bats (7), door, window, cats, oval and 2 punches from Pretty Label Punch

Daffodil Delight Cardstock #1119683

  • scraps for the windows

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • scraps for the ghost (3), Happy Halloween, Trick or Treat and the label on the bottom right hand corner

Did you notice the roof on the house?  It is not a piece of paper, it is a stamp!  For this part I laid my house where I wanted it to go and then I stamped my roof.  It is much easier to stamp the roof first then adhere the house.  The house, window, ghost, and bats are cut out using the Home Sweet Home Thinlits. 

The cats were punched out using the Cat Punch that coordinates with the Spooky Cat stamp set and the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper.  If you buy the stamp set and punch as a bundle, you can get it at a savings of 10% off!

For the sentiment on the house and the top right hand corner I used the Spooky Cat stamp set.  The sentiment by the cats came from the Label to Love stamp set and I used the coordinating punch, Everyday Label.  To get the black layer behind the label, you are going to punch out 2 black pieces.  One piece you are going to cut it in half horizontally and the other one have vertically.  On the piece you cut horizontally you will also trim off the edges.  Adhere these pieces to the stamped image and you have made a background label for the white label.  See picture below.

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Everyday Label Punch #144668, 2017 Holiday Catalog, Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

I adhered everything with snail adhesive, except the ghost by the house and both sentiments on the right hand page.  For those I used Stampin Dimensionals to give them some dimension on the page.  

Here are some additional pictures.

Now that we have the kitchen finished we are working on finishing the upstairs.  We are going through everything as if we are moving, which we are not, and Mr. Wonderful is painting the closets as we empty them.  He only has two more to go, but one of them is the master walk in closet.  Yep, that one is going to take us awhile to go through.  We have new carpet coming in a few weeks and we have to get rid of a lot of things so we don't have so much to move. Thankfully they are going to break it down into 3 days so that will be a big help.  

I am very thankful that all of this will be done before Thanksgiving and before when Emily comes home.  We are sad though because Erica will not be able to come home for Thanksgiving this year and we are not sure about Christmas.  This will be the first time in 22 years that all four of us will not be together.  I know our kids are suppose to grow up and go out on their own, but do they have to move so far away?

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Vintage Leaves and Stylized Birthday Card

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Vintage Leaves138802, Stylized Birthday stamp set #141828, Cable Knit Embossing Folder #143537, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects, go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

I was on Pinterest the other day and saw this awesome card created by Amy Koenders.  Thank you Amy for sharing your card with everyone.  I love how you can use it for anyone, male or female.

To make this card you will need the following products:

Soft Suede Cardstock #115318

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

Early Espresso Cardtock #119686

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

Crumb Cake Cardstock #120953

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

Very Vanilla Cardstock #101650

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

The easiest way for me to explain how I made this card is to go layer by layer.  We are going to start with the bottom layer made with the crumb cake cardstock.  I used the biggest leaf in the Vintage Leaves stamp set for all the background stamping.  

  • Crumb Cake layer:  use Sahara Sand ink and stamp off first before stamping on the cardstock
  • Soft Suede layer: use the Cable Knit embossing folder
  • Crumb Cake (top) layer:  Soft Suede ink and stamp off first before stamping on the cardstock.  Stamp the Happy Birthday with the Soft Suede ink full strength.
  • Very Vanilla inside: Sahara Sand ink stamp full strength and then stamp again turning slightly without inking your stamp again.  This will give you a shadow look.  I did this on the bottom right hand corner.

Stamping off means you ink up your stamp and stamp on a scrap piece of paper first.  Then stamp on your project without reinking your stamp.  This will give you a lighter image on your project. 

I used a sponge and Soft Suede ink to sponge around the edges of the the Crumb Cake pieces.  This softens it up and gives it an antique look.  

I adhered everything with Snail Adhesive except for the two top layers and there I used Stampin Dimensionals. 

I personally think this would make a great masculine card for fall birthdays or actually you could do it for any time of the year.

Today is hump day!!!  We are half way through our week!  Have a wonderful day today!

I have to say, this was another one that stumped me for a while.  I liked the color combination, I just couldn't figure out how to use it in a comfy, cozy (that was our theme of the month) project.  When I work on some projects, I try many different punches or things cut out with framelits/thinlits.  When I don't use them, I just throw them in a basket to use at a different time.  I accidentally knocked over the basket and the two yellow pieces fell out onto the floor.  That started my creating process and I ended up with the above card.  

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 2 1/4" x 2 1/4

Tangerine Tango Cardstock #111349

  • cut at 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"

Daffodil Delight Cardstock #119683

  • cut at 3 1/4" x 6 1/2"

Tranquil Tide Cardstock #144246

  • cut at 2 1/4" x 5" you can cut all three pieces out of this piece

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut 2 at 4" x 5 1/4"

I used the Eastern Medallion Framelits to make the sunflower.  When you cut them, you will need 2 of them, you are going to notice that they aren't cut all the way through.  In the picture below you will see how you have to cut them.

Once you get them cut you will take your Tangerine Tango and sponge the edges of the flowers.  I then took my bone folder and curled the edges of the flowers.  Adhere the two pieces together alternating the flowers.  Next, I ran the Chocolate Chip circle through the Big Shot using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder.  You will want to put your circle near the bottom of the embossing folder so you can get a lot of dots on the circle.  I also used the Brick Wall Embossing Folder on one of the white pieces for the background.  

I then punched out two leaves from the Tranquil Tide cardstock using the Leaf Punch in the holiday catalog.  The sentiment is from the Wood Words stamp set.  On the inside of the card I used a sentiment from the Heartland stamp set which says "Just a note to let you know I'm thinking of you".

I used snail adhesive on most of the card, except the flower that is popped using the Stampin Dimensionals.   To finish off the card, I put Wink of Stella on the circle part of the flower.  You can see it a little in the picture below.
