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.

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!

SCS Creative Crew September 2017 Project #3

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up Vintage Leaves stamp set #138802, Merry Cafe stamp set #144965, Retiform Technique, designed and created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

 

I have been wanting to try the Retiform Technique for a while.  With fall being our theme, I thought this would be a great time to try it.  I love it!  It is so fun and you get to use so many stamps from the one set.  You know how sometimes you only use 1 or 2 stamps from a set, this makes you use most, if not all of them.  

To make this project you will need the following products:

Early Espresso Cardstock #11968

  • 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"

The ink colors I used were:

  • Cajun Craze #126965
  • Cherry Cobbler 126966
  • Crumb Cake #126975
  • Crushed Curry #131173
  • Early Espresso #126974
  • Old Olive #126953
  • Tangerine Tango #126946

The stamp sets I used were the Vintage Leaves and Merry Cafe. Vintage Leaves has been around for a long time and is still one of my favorites.  I used the sentiment from the Merry Cafe stamp set, which is in the holiday catalog, but only part of it.  The whole sentiment is "Hello Fall!  it's pumpkin spice latte season".  To get only a section of the stamp I used a post it note and covered up the part I didn't want inked.  Before I stamped it onto my paper,  I took off the post it note and was able to stamp only the hello fall section.  You have to remember to take off the post it note before you stamp your paper though.  Don't ask how I know this.  Too many times I have had to fix my mistake.  

This is really my fourth and final project from SCS Creative Crew.  My third was the Fall Friday Week #2 project.  If you missed it click HERE to see it.

SCS Creative Crew September 2017 Project #2

stampin up, Stampin' Up! Butterfly Basics Stamp Set #137154, Painted Autumn DSP #144613, Stitched Shapes Framelits #145372, designed by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects, go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

We were given 5 different fall pictures to get inspiration from and this was my card I made.  You could use this card as a birthday card for feminine or masculine, which is nice.  I think at times we all have a hard with masculine cards.  This card is also a fast and easy card that you could change the designer series paper and cardstock and have a totally different card.  

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"

Garden Green Cardstock #102584

  • cut at 4 1/8" x5 3/8"
  • cut at 3 1/4" x 3 1/4"

Cajun Craze Cardstock #119684

  • cut at 3 1/4" x 3 1/4"

Daffodil Delight Cardstock #119683

  • cut at 3 1/4" x 3 1/4"

Whisper White Cardstock #110730

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

Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper #144613

  • cut at 4" x 5 /14"

 

I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut out all of the circles.  On the inside of the card and on the envelope I used the sentiment Happy Birthday from the Basic Butterfly stamp set.

I would like to first thank everyone for your prayers for our daughter, Emily.  Life is starting to get back to normal for a lot of people and yet, there are still a lot of people that are trying to deal with losing everything they own.  It is so sad, devastating and heartbreaking what Texas is going through right now.  Please continue to pray for everyone while they go through everything and learn how to deal with all of it.  

Emily will be going back to school today to see what her room looks like.  We are praying that she was saved from the water.  To get into her school you have to go up 4-5 steps to get to the front door.  All the teachers moved everything in their rooms up 3 feet from the floor.  So, that is about 7 feet up and we don't think the water got that high in that area.  Tomorrow the children will begin coming back. They are trying to get everything back to normal the best they can.  

Over the weekend we were busy painting our kitchen.  You know how you start one little project and it just snowballs.  Well, that is what is happening in our home.  It all started with us wanting to change the kitchen faucet.  Then if we are going to do that, why don't we go ahead and get the new counter tops that we have been wanting.  Well, if you have new countertops, we should repaint the kitchen before they are installed.  If I am changing the colors in my kitchen  that means I have to change the colors in my family room as they are all open to each other.  All of this because I wanted a new faucet.  I think the next time I ask for that Mr. Wonderful is going to be telling me no way!  LOL  

We ended up having to paint the walls 3 times.  Once with primer and two with the paint.  I have to say I really like the new color.  I finished the cornice's in the family room.  It amazes me how much brighter a room can look just by changing the paint color and some fabric.  I can't wait until we have it all done.  Then the next big project will be replacing all the carpet on our top level of our home.  I am definitely not looking forward to that.  

We have lived in our home with a daycare for 18 years, so it is definitely time to update it.  It will be very nice, once it is all done.  

Here is a picture of the primer on the walls.  

IMG_0014

I will show all of you a picture once we have everything finished.  It will be later in the month when the counter tops get installed.  I can't wait!

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope everyone has a wonderful Wednesday!

Country Livin' Card for Erica

stampin up, Stampin' Up! Country Livin' stamp set #141925, Hardwood stamp set #133035, Layering Oval Framelits #141706, Stitched Shapes Framelits #145372, Designed by Stampin Scrapper, for more card, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects, go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

Every time our girls leave to go back to Texas, college or now Michigan, I always make a card and hide it in their stuff.  I didn't think they really cared about them, but I was told they look forward to them.  I guess I will keep on making them.  It sure does make a momma feel good that they look for my cards while unpacking.  This is the card that I made for Erica when she moved to Michigan yesterday.  Boy was that hard!  

Erica loves her cowboy boots, jeans and t-shirts, so this set was perfect for her.  I decided to go with the blue color, because she really doesn't like the color pink.  This card could definitely be used as a masculine card too. 

To make this card you will need the following products:

Soft Sky Cardstock #131203

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

Smoky Slate Cardstock #131202

  • cut at 3" x 5"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

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

Watercolor Paper #122959

  • cut at 3" x 5"

I used the Smoky Slate ink to stamp the woodgrain background onto the the 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Soft Sky paper.  I adhered that piece to the card base using the Snail Adhesive and used Stampin' Dimensionals to pop up the Smoky Slate oval.  

I used the colors of Soft Suede, Soft Sky and Dapper Denim to watercolor the boots.  I started with the Soft Sky ink all over the boots making the edges a little bit darker than the center.  I then added the Dapper Denim in so I could darken the creases and natural shading.  The straps and soles were done with the Soft Suede ink.   Then I lightly used the Smoky Slate ink to add a shadow underneath the boot and Soft Suede for the dirt lines at the back of the boot. Here is a close up picture of the boots, so you can see the shading better.

This was a fun card and sad card to make all at the same time.  On one hand it was a fun card because I love to watercolor, but on the other hand it was a sad card.  Erica began the next chapter in her life yesterday by moving far away.  I know she will do great and she is around all of my family, but I still miss her.  I know this is what we are suppose to do, but, Man, it is hard!

My preorder came yesterday and OH MY GOODNESS!  You are going to love the new holiday catalog.  I can't wait to get into my goodies, but first I get to have fun at my Christmas Card Class tonight.  I love these classes!

Don't forget if you earned your Bonus Days Coupons in July to use them this month, you have until August 31st.  I used mine this morning on my preorder, it was so nice to have the them.

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.

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!

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.

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!
