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.

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.

Happy Mother's Day Pop And Twist Card

stampin up, Stampin' Up! Daisy Punch #143713, 1/2" Circle Punch #119869, Large Letters Framelits #141712, Organza Ribbon #114319, Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper #144137, Wink of Stella #141897, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

This is year for Mother's Day I made my mom and my mother in law a special card.  I made a creative fold card called pop and twist.  Most of these type of cards have 4 panels on the inside of the card, but this one has 6.  I would like to thank Lisa J for sharing her directions on how to make this card on Pinterest.  They were wonderful!

I used some current, retiring and new products to make this card.  On the front of the card you see the beautiful Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper and the Daisy Punch from the new catalog.  

The Organza Ribbon is on the retiring list, and all other products are in the current annual catalog, including Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Pool Party, Wisteria Wonder and Whisper White, both thick and regular, cardstock.  The letters were made using the Large Letter Framelits.

It's that just the neatest thing, how it pops up when you open the card.  I really wish you could see better how the colors compliment the designer series paper.

You will have to make your own envelope (I used our envelope punch board) as the finished size is 5 1/2" x 5 1/2".  I have a trick when making the envelope since this card is quite thick.  

I put the card in the middle of the envelope and brought the two side flaps in and then adhered the bottom flap.  This way you know you are making it the correct thickness you need for the card.  This card will take extra postage if you are mailing it.

Over the weekend we were going over our schedule for the summer. It is going to be a busy, but fun summer.  I am going to see my mom in Michigan and go on a wine tour with the ladies in my family.  This is our third year doing it, and it is always so much fun.  This year we are getting t-shirts made for the occasion.  

My mom is known as the "party grandma" of the family.  LOL  Well, we wanted to include her in the t-shirts, even though she won't be able to go with us.  So, my niece came up with the name "Party Grandma's Posse".  I love it!  Per my mother's request, they have to be blue like the water in the bay in Traverse City, MI.  Once we get the t-shirts, I will have to post a picture.

Thank you for stopping by today!  Have a happy hump day!

Black Magic Technique using Grateful Bunch

Stampin up, Stampin' Up! Grateful Bunch #140691, Birthday Blossoms #139471, Black Magic Technique, designed by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to Stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

 

Black Magic!!!  Hmmm, what makes it magic?  You get to color on black paper with watercolor pencils and it shows!  This is such a stunning technique and an easy one too!  That is the best kind.  

I have used one of our retiring stamp sets for the flower, Grateful Bunch.  It is the perfect flower for this technique.  

To make this card you will need the following products:

Rich Razzleberry Cardstock #115316:

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

Basic Black Cardstock #121045

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

Melon Mambo Cardstock #115320

  • cut at 3 3/4" x 5"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

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

To make the black magic happen you first start by stamping your image with White Craft Stampin Ink #101731.  This product is on the retired list, but will be coming back in the new catalog reformulated. It will come to you with no ink in the pad, you will ink it with the refill.  

You then you your heat tool to dry and set the image.   This step is very important, because if your image is not dry it is going to smear when you go to color it.  I used our Watercolor Pencils when I colored mine.  You can see in the picture below a close up of the flower.  You can see my coloring a lot better.  

I used the Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie and Rich Razzleberry pencils.  I first started coloring the whole image lightly with the Daffodil Delight.  I needed a base color to cover the image.   Then I used the Rich Razzleberry around the center of the flower to give my flower some depth.  

After that I colored with the Melon Mambo pencil starting by overlapping a little bit with the Rich Razzleberry.  I then took the Melon Mambo and went up one side of my petal.  The center of the flower was colored with the Pumpkin Pie pencil.  To give it a little bit of sparkle, I put Wink of Stella on the center of the flower.  Because I was going over watercolor pencils, you will need to clean off the tip of your Wink of Stella on a piece of scrap paper or paper towel.

This is a fun technique where you can add a lot of color to dark paper. 

Thank you for stopping by today and have a great week!

Birthday Blog Candy!!!

Stampin up, Stampin' Up! Delicate Details, Sale-A-Bration 2017, Birthday blog candy, Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects, go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

In our home we love to celebrate birthdays.  We have a tradition that started out as a weekend, now is a week and is quickly growing to a month.  What is it you ask?  We have a birthday weekends.  So, over the weekend my family had to do whatever I wanted to do.  You get to pick the places we eat at if we are going out, what you want to do and get waited on.  

To help celebrate my birthday, I am having blog candy!!!!  I am giving away the Delicate Details stamp set along with a Pink Pirouette ink pad.  For you chance to win, all you have to do is leave me a comment and I will randomly draw a name.  I will pick the winner on Wednesday, May 3rd.  

Over the weekend, Mark took me out to lunch on Saturday and made me my favorite stir fry for dinner.  I wanted to get the house cleaned on Saturday so Mr. Wonderful (aka Mark) helped me the whole time! Then to finish the night out we had Ritter's Frozen Custard.  Oh my goodness, it is so good.  

Yesterday, my friend Bobbi and I reorganized and cleaned out the kitchen at our church.  Bobbi went to throw away some garbage in the big dumpster and dropped her phone in it.  Over the last couple of days we have had a lot of rain, so there was about 2 inches of water in there.  The only way we could get it out was for one of us to climb in there.  Well, her phone, she gets to climb in.  Ok, the real reason was I was laughing so hard I couldn't have done it if I tried.   

It was quite comical the whole time.  I haven't laughed that hard in a very long time.  I do believe at one time, I had to cross my legs or there was going to be an accident happening.  LOL  Here are some pictures of our fun adventure. 


Stampinscrapper JoyceWhitman

I have been so blessed to have Bobbi as one of my best friends and sister in Christ.  My life is so much better having her in it!

Thank you for stopping in today!  I hope you have a marvelous Monday!

Flourishing Phrases Sympathy Card

Stampin up, Stampin' Up! Flourishing Phrases #141534, Floral Boutique DSP #141663, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

I was just noticing in this picture that the colors almost look black.   I used Night of Navy ink and paper and Whisper White paper.  I am going to have to figure out why that did that.  Hmmm  

Nobody likes to make sympathy cards, but when you do you want them to be pretty.  This card gives you that and it is easy, which is an added bonus.  

The designer series paper I used on this is the Floral Boutique, which I absolutely love.  This is my favorite DSP (designer series paper) in the 2016-2017 annual catalog.   I must not be the only one, because Stampin' Up! has put it in the new 2017-2018 Annual Catalog!  It will be available in a pack with all the new in colors.  This paper pack is going to be a big hit, just like it was in the current catalog.  

To make this card you will need the following products:

Whisper White Thick Cardstock #140272

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

Night of Navy Cardstock #100867

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

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

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

Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper #141663

  • cut at 3" x 5 1/2"

For the sentiment on the inside, I stamped it right onto my card base.  

Wasn't that easy?  You could change the sentiment and with the new colors available on June 1st, there will be so many possibilities.  

Last night I had my Paper Pumpkin Class.  We had a lot of fun creating and watercoloring.  It is exciting to see how many different ways people can take the same products and put a whole new card, just by adding dragonfly.  They all turned out beautiful.  

Thank you for stopping by and have a terrific Thursday!

Thank you card using retired products

stampin up, Stampin' Up Tin of Cards #138946, Jar of Love #141587, In Color Designer Series Paper stacks #141408, Lace Doilies #142793, Stitched Shapes Framelits #145372, Everyday Jars Framelits #141490, Banner Framelits #132173, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

Have you ever participated in a swap?  Some of you may be wondering what is a swap?  A swap is where you make cards, or cardnfronts, for everyone that is participating.  So if there is 12 people  involved, you will make 12 cards of the same design.  In return you will get 12 cards, 11 different and one of your own.  This is a great way to get ideas for cards and to use either for classes, or to give to someone.  The above card was originally created by Connie Ingram, another demonstrator, from Colorado.  

I changed a color on the card, but overall the design is hers.  Isn't lovely.  I really like how it turned out and it showcases the Tin of Cards stamp set, Banner framelits, Lace Doilies and the 2016-2018 Designer Paper Stack, all which are retiring.  The silver bow is a retired product from a couple of years ago.  

To make this card you will need the following products:

Dapper Denim Cardstock #141414

  • cut at 4 1/4" x 11" score at 5 1/2"
  • cut at 2 3/4" x 5 1/4"

Daffodil Delight Cardstock #119683

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut at 3 1/4" x 5 1/4"
  • cut at 2 1/4" x 2 1/4"
  • scraps for flower and leaves

2016-2018 In Color Designer Series Paper Stacks #141408

  • cut at 3 1/2" x 5 1/4"

I have found to make the white banner frame easiest,  put the two banner framelits on at the same time.  Center the smaller one inside of the larger framelit.  Run it through your big shot at the same time. See picture below.

The flower and circle with sentiment on it are the only two things I used dimensionals on.  The rest of the layers were attached with snail adhesive.

When we went to Disney one time, we have gone multiple times - we love Disney, we decided to take pictures of all of our food.  I scrapbook vacations and we didn't want this one to be anything like all the others.  So, now we take pictures of our food all the time.  I know it's crazy.  

So, of course, when I was in Minneapolis, I took pictures.  I have to say, I had some of the best food ever there.  On Friday, we were starved by the time all of us got to the hotel.  So we had found on the internet a Mexican restaurant called Salsa a La Salsa not far from our hotel.  Oh My Goodness!!!!!  It was the best Mexican food I have ever had.  Here is a picture of my fajitas.

IMG_8360

I am dreaming of this food as I am typing up this blog post.  Yummy!

IMG_8390

On Friday night we were busy working on Carla's swaps, so we just ordered pizza.  We found a place that delivered, and had gluten free pizzas.  The one in the above picture is mashed potatoes, broccoli, bacon and tomatoes.  I am weird and I don't care for pizza with the red sauce.  I will eat it, but I am not crazy about it.

On Saturday night after the conference a bunch of us went to the Newsroom Restaurant for dinner.  Again, we had the best food.  I asked the server what their desserts were, so I knew what to order for dinner.  She said, "why not have dessert first?".  Sounded good to Carla and I, so that is exactly what we did.  I had the white chocolate creme burlee and again, Oh My Goodness!  I am going to have to do that more often, dessert first.  

IMG_8500

Doesn't that just look delicious!  I want to go back to Minneapolis and take Mark to all the wonderful places we went to eat.  I think he would love it.  Maybe it will be time for a road trip soon!

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope everyone has a fabulous Friday and a wonderful weekend.

My Easter Card and pictures from OnStage

stampin up, StaminUp !EasterMessage stamp set #142987, Falling In Love DSP #142788, 3/8 Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

I made this card for my open house that I had in January and have been waiting to share it with you.  I fell in love with the card in occasions catalog for this stamp set.  I changed it a little to go with the products I had on hand and it show the ribbon that was in our Sale-A-Bration brochure.  If you don't have this ribbon you could use any ribbon you have on hand.  

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

Blushing Bride Cardstock #131198

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

Very Vanilla Cardstock #101650

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

Fallin In Love Designer Series Paper #142788

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

I stamped the image from the Easter message stamp set and then used our Watercolor Pencils and Blender Pens.  I used the Early Espresso for the cross and the Basic Gray for the cloth.  This added just a hint of color to make a subtle impact.  

I used dimensionals under the small Blushing Bride cardstock to give the card dimension.  I also added a piece of very vanilla cardstock to the inside of the card.  

Below are some close up pictures of my projects that I had created for my display at OnStage.  I have to say my favorite is the scrapbook page of our farm.  I brought back a lot of memories.  I hope you enjoy your sneak peek of some of the new products.

stampin up, Stampin' Up! 2017 OnStage, April, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

In the above picture I was given the punch for the lemon/limes.  Did you notice the paper on both the top and bottom pictures on the right hand side.  You are going to love that paper stack.  So many possibilities.  How cute is the tab punch on the gift card holder?  In the bottom collage you will see how I used it to make a background.

I just realized I put a picture in here twice.  I must really like that project.  LOL  You will notice the paper again, can you see I loved it. The crate I made myself, but there is a die in the new catalog that you will be able to make it much easier.  

stampin up, Stampin' Up! 2017 OnStage, April, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

The top right one is the background made with the tab punch.  I have to give my daughter Emily credit for that idea.  You might now notice in the pictures, but glossy white paper is back!!!!!  You know what else is in the new catalog that is returning?  The self adhesive sheets! They are going to be wonderful for all our small delicate dies.  On the bottom right corner picture you can see one of the new ribbons, washi tape and embellishments.  The bottom left picture is made using the new glossy white paper.  

I am really excited about the glossy white paper.  It retired shortly after I started selling Stampin' Up!, so I didn't really get a chance to play with it.  I am sure there are a lot of really neat techniques out there for me to learn and share with you.  

My first box arrived yesterday of the Eastern Suite and my other boxes arrive today from my preorder.  Oh, my goodness!  I think I have died and gone to heaven.  What should I create with first?

Last night we had the grandrandall's for a sleepover.  They were so good, I couldn't have asked for them to behave any better. They had a lot of fun helping me clean up my craftroom for class tonight. Beckett said to me that he thought I should get rid of some of my stuff because I could never use all of it.  Uh, NO!

You are probably wondering who are the grandrandall's.  Five years ago I met Todd and Kumiko when they came to talk to me about taking care of their first baby.  There was an instant connection between all of us.  You know how you meet someone and right away you know they are going to be a part of your lives for a long time, if not, forever.  Over the years, Todd has come to our church, accepted Christ and got baptized.  I was so honored and humbled when he did his video and talked about what an influence our family has had on him with his walk with Christ.  We have all adopted each other as a part of our family.  My girls call Todd their brother and Kumiko their sister and they do the same.  It warms my heart so much.  

Some people at church thought Todd was our son.  I physically could have had Todd, but I would have been 14 years old.  We sometimes, say yes he is.  It is easier that way at times.  In our hearts they are our children and their children are our grandchildren.  We love all of them so much and we are so blessed to have them in our lives.  

Have a terrific Thursday and thank you for stopping in today.

When I made this card for my Creative Fold Class I knew I wanted to also use it for my birthday swap at OnStage.  This is a unique fold that I hadn't seen before.  I can't remember where I saw it, but I love it.  

The requirements for this swap was we had to use current product, had to have 2 layers and 2 embellishments.  You can definitely see my washi tape, but maybe not my other embellishment.  If you look real close you will see Wink of Stella on the ice cream cone.  

You will need the following products to make this card:

Fold on all your score lines, burnish them with your bone folder and adhere the pieces of Watermelon Wonder cardstock to the Peekaboo Peach.  Add your stamped pieces and designer series paper to the Watermelon Wonder sections.  

To the front piece I added Washi Tape and an ice cream cone cut out using the Frozen Treats Framelits Dies.  I added Wink of Stella to the bottom edges of all the ice cream scoops and to all of the chocolate.  I however, did not add it to the ice cream cone inside of the card.  

Today is the day of Stampin' Up! OnStage event!!!!  I can't wait to see the new catalog! I wonder what the new colors are?  Did they add more punches?  What new stamp sets are there?  Oh My Goodness!  I can't wait to share it with all of you!

Thank you for stopping by today and have a wonderful Saturday and weekend.
