Rooted In Nature (CT #149)

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Rooted In Nature stamp set #146482, Layering Square Framelits # 141708, Leaves Trinkets #146343, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects, go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

Have you ever embossed on designer series paper?  I have not, so this is something new for me.  I love learning new things!    On the card that is our inspiration for CASEing Tuesday, the creator did just that.  I really like how it looks and will be trying it on other pieces of designer series paper.  

Here is a picture of our inspiration card

I will have to admit that this week it took me a little bit longer to come up with a design.  I really struggled with this card.  I do, however, like how my final card turned out.  

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Rooted In Nature stamp set #146482, Layering Square Framelits # 141708, Leaves Trinkets #146343, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects, go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

To make this card you will need the following products:

Cardstock:

Soft Suede

  • cut at 5 1/2" X 8 1/2" 

Grapefruit Grove

  • cut at 2" x 2"

Mint Macaron

  • cut at 2 1/4" x 2 1/4"

Tranquil Tide

  • cut at 2 1/5" x 2 1/5"

Nature's Poem Designer Series Paper

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

I used the White Embossing Powder for the sentiment, Layering Squares Framelits to make the squares and the Triple Banner Punch to make the ends on the banner.  To finish off the card I added the copper leaves from the Leaves Trinkets embellishments.  The picture in the catalog really doesn't show how pretty these really are in person. 

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Rooted In Nature stamp set #146482, Layering Square Framelits # 141708, Leaves Trinkets #146343, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects, go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

For the inside of the card and on the envelope I used the stamp that matches the embellishment.  If first stamped it in Tranquil Tide, then in Mint Macaron and then again in Mint Macaron without reinking the stamp.  This way you get 3 different hues of color.

Love What You Do Thank You Card

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Love What You Do stamp set #148042, Share What You Love Specialty DSP #146926, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

At my monthly meetings for my Joyful Butterflies team we always make cards that my team can then go and use for a class.  This month we used the stamp set Love What You Do.  We made 3 different cards that used different products from the Share What You Love Suite.  The first card we made was the thank you card above.  This is such a pretty card and so easy to make!

To make this card you will need the following products:

Cardstock:

Berry Burst

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

Basic Black

  • cut at 3 1/4" x 4 1/4"

Whisper White

  • cut at 1" x 4"
  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4" - this is for inside the card

Share What You Love Designer Series Paper

  • cut at 3" x 4"

On the small white piece of cardstock, I punched each end with the Banner Triple Punch first and then stamped my image with Black Memento ink.  I popped the black piece of cardstock and the banner with Stampin Dimensionals.  I then finished off the card with a double bow made from White Bakers Twine attached with a glue dot.

Rooted In Nature Sympathy Card

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Rooted In Nature Stamp Set #146482, Leaves Trinkets #146343, Wood Textures Designer Series Paper #144177, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

Sympathy cards are always hard to make, especially when they are for your family.  This past week I had to make a card for my aunt and her family when my uncle passed away.  When I went into my stampin studio, I saw the Rooted In Nature stamp set sitting on my craft table and thought it would be perfect for a masculine card.  This is a great stamp set to use,  because whenever I think of  him, I think of trees and being out with nature. 

To make this card you will need the following products:

Cardstock:

Old Olive

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

Whisper White

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

Wood Textures Designer Series Paper

  • cut at 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" 

I stamped my images right on a piece of the Wood Textures designer series paper.  For the trees I used my Old Olive and Early Espresso Stampin markers to color my stamp.  I then huffed on the stamp to moisten the ink before stamping.  When you use markers to color your stamp, you want to make sure that you always huff on them so the ink is still moist and not dried out.  If you don't do this step you won't always get a good image.  I stamped one of the trees and then stammped it again, without putting more ink on it (this is the middle tree).  I reinked my stamp with the Stampin markers and stamped the third tree.  

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Rooted In Nature Stamp Set #146482, Leaves Trinkets #146343, Wood Textures Designer Series Paper #144177, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

For the sentiment I used Soft Suede ink.  One trick I have taught my customers is when you are doing a solid image, such as this sentiment, you want to ink your stamp up a little different.  I tell them to tap, tap, tap your stamp on the ink pad, then twist, twist, twist, followed by tap, tap, tap.  This really does make a difference. 

I taught this to one of my customers who was having trouble with the Waterfront stamp set not getting a good image when stamped.  She text me and said that it made a world of difference in how her image was turning out.  Yay!  This is one of the many aspects of being a demonstrator for Stampin' Up! that I just love.  Helping people and bringing smiles to their faces.  It just warms my heart.

I then wrapped 5/8" Burlap Ribbon around the bottom and added one of the Leaves Trinkets, in the copper finish.  Because the Burlap Ribbon is quite thick I adhered this layer to the card base with Stampin Dimensionals.  Whenever I put ribbon on my project I always put the layer with the ribbon on with Stampin Dimensionals.  Your paper will lay a lot nicer over ribbon this way.

I decorated the inside and the envelope with the trees the same way I did them on the front of the card.

You could change the sentiment to Happy Birthday or Congratulations for more masculine cards.  

Thank you for stopping by today.  I really appreciate it!  Have a great day!

A Little Bit Of Old And A Little Bit Of New (CT #148)

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! A Little Wild #144344, Happy Celebrations #143012. Swirly Frames #146519, Stampin Blends, Color Theory DSP, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

Today's card is one I made for my niece's sons first birthday.  I used a little bit of old, A Little Wild and Happy Celebrations stamp sets and Color Theory designer series paper with a little bit of new, Swirly Frames stamp set.  When I saw the Swirly Frames stamp set at Stampin' Up! OnStage I really liked it. I kept thinking about all the possibilities with this set.  Then during prize patrol I won this set!  I was so excited!

The Happy Celebrations stamp set is one that is retiring and it is now while supplies last.  This stamp set, along with all the retiring products, are while supplies last and will no longer be available after May 31st.  

I got my inspiration for this card from my CASEing Tuesday group.  Here is the picture that is our inspiration this week.

29595125_10213132084831134_3353432007716270686_n

For the animals I stamped them first with Memento Black ink, then I colored them with our Stampin Blends markers.  I used the Crumb Cake, Bronze and Smoky Slate.  These will be available for purchase on June 1st.  Since I only wanted the front of the animals I only inked up that part of my stamp and then cut them out with the Little Loves Framelits.  You will have to do a little trimming to cut off the part that connects to the other side.  These stamps are made to make gift tags, so there is the front and back of the animals.

To do the frame I stamped the frame image onto Crumb Cake cardstock using Soft Suede ink and then fussy cut it out.  I stamped the Happy sentiments with Soft Suede ink and the Birthday To You with Crushed Curry ink on Whisper White cardstock.  To adhere the frame to the Whisper White cardstock I used our Foam Adhesive Strips.  They were the perfect size for this project.  I then used the adhesive strips to attach the animals so they were all at the same height.

I stamped a lion in the inside of my card and an elephant on the outside of the envelope.

I hope these CASEing Tuesday projects and my other projects give you inspiration to create a card, scrapbook page, 3D project or any other type of project.  I would love it if shared it with me in the comments.  I love hearing from all of you.

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

Tranquil Tulips with Brick Wall Embossing Folder

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Tranquil Tulips #143767, Brick Wall Embossing Folder #138288, Sunshine Wishes Thinlits #141489, Powder Pink Finely Woven Ribbon #144134, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

I think I have already told you how much I am going to miss this stamp set when it retires at the end of the month, but I am also going to miss the Brick Wall Embossing Folder.  This is one folder that I won't be getting rid of, it will go in my keep pile.  

I love cards that have dimension to them and this card is one of them.  The Tranquil Tulip stamp set is a two step stamp set, which means you create the images in two steps.  The first step is to stamp the solid image, the bottom layer, in a lighter color or stamp off your ink first.  When I say stamp off your ink I mean to first stamp your image on a scrap piece of paper and then stamp it onto your project.  This will give you a lighter hue of the color you are using.  Then you stamp your second step right on top of the first image in the same color or a darker color.  On this card I used the same color, Lovely Lipstick.  Lovely Lipstick is one of the 2018-2020 In Colors which will be available June 1st.

Since I wanted to pop the top layer I did not stamp mine on top of each other, I stamped them next to each other on a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I then fussy cut, cut them out with scissors, and attached the two layers together with a Stampin' Dimensional. 

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Tranquil Tulips #143767, Brick Wall Embossing Folder #138288, Sunshine Wishes Thinlits #141489, Powder Pink Finely Woven Ribbon #144134, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

For the Love sentiment I cut 2 of them using the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits.  I cut one out of  Powder Pink and one out of  Lovely Lipstick cardstock.  I then adhered them together using the Multipurpose Liquid Glue and offset them just a little.  The finished circle is also popped up using Stampin Dimensionals.  

To make this project you will need the following products:

Cardstock:

Whisper White Thick

Masculine Birthday Blossoms

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Birthday Blossoms #139471, Wood Textures Designer Series Paper #144177, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

The font in the Birthday Blossoms stamp set is one of my favorites.   I am really going to miss this stamp set when it retires on May 31st.  I love how it has sentiments for narrow areas, like in the card above, or for when you have a little more room.  There is also a flower in the stamp set that coordinates with the Pansy Punch and that is also retiring at the end of the month.  

The technique on this card is called the Starburst Technique.  This is a great way to use up scraps or showcase different patterns from a designer series paper pack.  So many possibilities with this technique.  You could do a masculine, new baby, birthday, wedding, anniversary, get well, hello, thinking of you, sympathy, just because or a note card.  These are just some ideas for cards, I am sure there are a lot more reasons to send a card. 

To make this project you will need the following products:

Cardstock:

Night of Navy

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

  • cut at 1/2" x 5"

Marina Mist (Retiring)

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

Whisper White

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

Wood Textures Designer Series Paper

  • cut 4 different designs at 1 1/2" x 4"

I have made this technique before using a different designer series paper.  It is amazing how different a card can look, just by changing the designer series paper.  The possibilities are endless!  

Click on the picture below and it will take you to to the card I posted on February 6, 2017.  The post has step by step directions on how to create this beautiful, or should I say handsome, birthday card for the man in your life.

I am excited that the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Pack is going to be in the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog.  I have so much of it, I was wondering what I was going to do with all of it.  Now I have another year to play and create using it!  Yay!

Christmas in May? You bet! (CT#147)

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Hang Your Stocking stamp set #142114, Holly Embossing Folder #141634, Seasonal Layers Thinlits #143751, Be Merry Designer Series Paper, CASEing Tuesday, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and more go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

You are probably asking yourself why in the world did I make a Christmas card in May.  Well, I was working on making my card for CASEing Tuesday and started looking through my retired stamp sets.  I saw the Christmas sets and Christmas designer series paper and thought, why not?!

Here is our inspirational card for this week:

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! CASEing Tuesday, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

I used a few retiring products on this card.  The retiring products are: Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler oval paper and is from Be Merry designer series paper, banner and snowflakes are made with the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.  I used the Holly Embossing Folder on the Garden Green paper to give it some texture.  

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Hang Your Stocking stamp set #142114, Holly Embossing Folder #141634, Seasonal Layers Thinlits #143751, Be Merry Designer Series Paper, CASEing Tuesday, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and more go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

In the first picture, for some reason, the glimmer paper is showing up as white paper.  It didn't matter how I moved my lights around or what angle I took the picture.  I couldn't get the glimmer paper to show up.  You can, however, see it in the above picture.  I used the Seasonal Layers Thinlits to cut out the snowflakes.  I had to use the precision plate along with going back and forth at least 4 times to go through the glimmer paper.  Stampin' Up! has new glimmer paper in the new annual catalog that will cut with our framelits/thinlits.  Yay!

To make this project you will need the following products:

Cardstock:

Cherry Cobbler

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

Whisper White 

  • cut at 4 x 5 1/4"

Be Merry Designer Series Paper

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

Vellum

  • cut at 2 1/4" x 3 1/4"

Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper

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

I stamped the sentiment on the Vellum paper with Garden Green ink.  You are going to have to let it dry for a little bit or use your heating tool to dry it.  I then took the Multi Purpose Liquid Glue and put a small amount on a clear block and used a sponge to tap it on the back of the Vellum.  This way you will not see the glue through the Vellum.  I popped up the sentiment and banner with Stampin Dimensionals.

Mark and I were busy over the weekend working on our deck.  I really like how it turned out.  My favorite thing to do is to sit on my deck, with my coffee and read my bible.  It is so calming and relaxing.  Here are some pictures of our deck.

I hope everyone had a great Mother's Day.  I was able to talk to both of my girls and my mom, so it was wonderful day for me.  

IMG_2426

I love this picture of my mom and me.  It was taken when I was in Michigan last month for her 85th birthday and to see Erica.  Mark is going to see Erica this weekend, so I get to craft all weekend long!  I can't wait!  I will miss Mark dearly, but I am also excited to be able to play in my studio as long as I want.

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

Stamp 'N Hop Blog Hop - Share What You Love

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Love What You Do stamp set #148042, Share What You Love Specialty DSP #146926, Share What You Love Artisan Pearls #45927, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

Welcome to the the Stamp 'N Hop Blog Hop today!  You might have just come from Cheryl Taylor's blog.  Wasn't here project beautiful!  This month we are creating projects with products from the new 2018-2019 annual catalog.  When I saw the Share What You Love Suite I feel in love immediately.  The designer series paper has a pearlized finish on some of the pages along with the doilies.  There is beautiful ribbon, an embellishment kit, pearls and embossing folder to complete the suite. They are all gorgeous!  You know what the best part is?  You can purchase these products now too! 

For my project this month I have created a notebook cover.  One of my friends gave me one as a roommate gift when I went to the Stampin' Up! OnStage event last month and fell in love with it.  I have created so many of these since, that I just can't stop! On the front I used some of the items that in the Share What You Love Suite.  I used the big watercolor stamp with Mint Macaron ink, first I stamped it off on a piece of scrap paper, on a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I then stamped the sentiment with Mossy Meadow ink and the flowers with Blackberry Bliss ink.  To cut out the stamped images and the Blackberry Bliss layer behind it, I used the Layering Square Framelits.  

I added a Pearlized Doily, which I cut in half, behind the Blackberry Bliss square.  The flowers on the bottom of the square were cut out from the same designer series paper that I used to decorate the front.  The two other flowers on the top are from another piece of paper in the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper. 

To finish off the project, I used the Artisan Pearls that are in this suite.  I used the light and dark pink pearls in the center of the flowers.  

StampinUpShareWhatYouLoveSuiteStampNHopBlogHopStampinScrapperJoyceWhitman3

On the inside of this notebook there is a pocket for you to put in receipts or papers that you need to keep.  I used the 1 3/4" Circle Punch to create the half circle cutout in the Mossy Meadow piece.

My friends and customers are loving getting these notebooks from me.  For my Hostess Appreciation Event last month I made each of them one with their initial on it.  I used some of the other papers that are in the Share What You Love Specialty designer series pack.

When I made the notebook covers in the pictures above, I tried to coordinate the paper with the style and favorite colors of all the attendees.  They loved them!  

To make this project you will need the following products:

Cardstock:

Retiring Flower Shop and Window Shopping

When I had my Hostess Appreciation event we made a couple of make and takes and this was one of the cards.  I wanted to have a bright and cheerful card along with showcasing one of the new colors, Pineapple Punch.  This color is so beautiful and bright,  just like the sunshine.  I tried different colors to coordinate with it and loved the way Tempting Turquoise really popped next to the Pineapple Punch.  I will definitely miss this color as it is retiring at the end of the month.  If you want it, get it now!  Don't forget to order the ink refill if you get the ink pad.   I chose retiring stamp sets, Flower Shop and Window Shopping, for the flowers and sentiment.  

To make this project you will need the following products:

Cardstock:

Tempting Turquoise

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"

Pineapple Punch

  • cut at 4 x 5 1/4

Whisper White

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

I used the Stamparatus for the sentiment, which was perfect for centering it on the Whisper White cardstock.

One thing I did to center the white pieces was put the top and bottom pieces, with the flowers stamped on them, and then added the middle piece.  It is a lot easier to center the middle piece then trying to start at the top and work your way down.
