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.

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.

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.

Directions for the Sunburst Technique 

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.

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!

Retiring Flower Shop and Window Shopping

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Flower Shop stamp set #130942, Window Shopping 143265, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman
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.  

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Flower Shop stamp set #130942, Window Shopping 143265, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

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.

On Saturday I will be participating in a blog hop featuring new products.  I can't wait for you to see the project I made.  The blog post will not go up until 12:00pm instead of me early morning post.  

Thank you for stopping by today.  The weekend is almost here!  Enjoy your day today.

Tranquil Tulips With 2018-2019 In Colors

At our team meeting, Joyful Butterflies,  we made cards using the retiring hostess stamp set Tranquil Tulips from the annual catalog.  I wanted to spotlight one stamp set, but also wanted to introduce the new 2018-20019 In Colors.  So, I went through all of my stamp sets that were retiring and saw this one and thought it would be perfect.  I hadn't touched this stamp set in a long time, there for a while I was using it all the time, and it had the five different stamps for the colors I wanted to showcase.

The new colors are Blueberry Bushel, Call Me Clover, Grapefruit Gove, Lovely Lipstick and Pineapple Punch.  They are so bright and cheerful and made this card feel the same way.  

To make the flowers I first stamped off the solid images before stamping them on my card.  For the second step of the flowers I did not stamp off, I stamped with full strength ink.  This gave the flowers great dimension and look more realistic.

When I am looking for inspiration for my cards, scrapbook pages and other projects I go to a variety of places.  I google images of a certain stamp set I want to use, Pinterest, Facebook groups, blogs, Split Coast Stampers, magazines, books, just to name a few.  For this layout I saw a card with designer series paper punched out with the Tailored Tag Punch all over the front of it.  Now, that would have been a lot to do the whole page, but I thought it would look great as a border.  

I really like how it grounds this page.  There are so many colors in the Picture Perfect Party designer series paper, which made it fun to work with.

The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the coordinating stamp set, Picture Perfect Birthday.  I stamped it in Memento Black ink and cut it out with the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  The bottom layer of the sentiment is Lemon Lime Twist cardstock cut with Layering Oval Framelits.

For the balloons I used other designs from the same paper pack and White Bakers Twine for the string on them.

I have a little trick to line up the border.  See the picture below.

I put them down in this order to make sure they were even.  Yep, my OCD was kicking in.  LOL 

  1.   Put it in the center of the paper with the point on the 6" mark.
  2.   Put the edge of the piece even with the edge of the black 12 x 12 paper.
  3.   Center these pieces between #1 and #2. 
  4.   For your second row you will put the center point in the center of the space between the pieces in the first row.

Mother's Day Card With Teeny Tiny Wishes - (CT #143)

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set #127802, sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper #145564, Classic Label Punch #141491, CASEing Tuesday, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking or 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

When I started looking at the inspiration card I knew I wanted to use retiring products.  I wanted to give you another idea on how to use the beautiful paper Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper and Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set. For the base of my card I used Marina Mist cardstock that is also retiring.  I am going to miss all three of these products. 

Here is my inspiration card:

29571255_10213131901226544_5382364625372029380_n

To make this card you will need the following products:

Cardstock:

Marina Mist (this color is retiring)

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

Berry Burst 

  • cut at 3/8" x 2 1/2"

Whisper White 

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

Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"
  • cut at 1 1/2" x 5 1/4"
  • scrap for a 1 3/4" circle

To get the banner cuts on the end of the two banners I used the Classic Label Punch, but you can also use your scissors. 

This is a great layout to use for any occasion and the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set has 24 different sentiments which is perfect.

Life has been really crazy since I got back from OnStage.  On Monday I had a doctor's appointment with an ENT as I have been having problems with ringing in my ears.  I have to go through more testing, but I did learn that I have some permanent hearing loss in my left ear and my right ear is not far behind.  I have to admit, I have taken this news hard.  I am having more test next Tuesday and hopefully this will show more of what is going on.  

Then on Thursday night I got a phone call from my sister that my mom was taken to the hospital via the squad.  Her blood pressure was 215 over 110.  Talk about scary.  It was caused from the cough syrup she was taking .  My mom is doing great now, thank God!  I am heading up to Michigan on Thursday to spend time with Erica and my mom and help her celebrate her birthday.  I can't believe that my mom is going to be 85!  It will be great to see my family!

Lets talk about OnStage!  It was so much fun!  I got to walk across the stage for being a demonstrator for 5 years and for promoting to Silver Elite.  I had so much fun!  I can't wait to go again in November.  There was also great sadness that weekend.  One of my best friends, Cathy, got to Milwaukee on Thursday and Mary and I were driving up on Friday.  We couldn't wait to spend the weekend together!  We got a call on Friday morning from Cathy that her husband had passed away during the night and she had to get home.  Talk about total shock and my heart was and still is breaking for her.  I can not imagine what she is going through.  If you get a chance please say a prayer for her and her family.  They have a lot to go through over the next few weeks and months.

So, the last week has had a lot of emotional days, but I know God is in control of all of the situations, so I trust Him that He has the best plan for all of us.

Stampin' Up! Color Revamp and Last Chance Products!

Unnamed

While I was at OnStage Stampin' Up! announced that there will be a Color Revamp for the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog.  I love the new colors, the returning in colors and I have to say I even agree with most of the colors that are retiring.  I know some people don't like change, but I think you are going to actually love this change.  The new colors are so beautiful.  Would you like to see the new colors?  Here they are:

Here are all the details of the Color Revamp:

  • You will notice that Black, Very Vanilla and Whisper White are not in the picture above.  That is because now they are in there own category called basics.  The colors of Merry Merlot, Mossy Meadow and Night of Navyhave been added to the Neutrals.
  • Did you see the returning retired in colors?  They are Blackberry Bliss, Coastal Cabana, Flirty Flamingo, Mint Macaron, Mossy Meadow and Poppy Parade.  Yay!  Some of these are my favorites. 
  • The Brights are really bright now which is perfect for Spring and Summer.  The new ones are  Mango Melody, Granny Apple Green. Gorgeous Grape and Poppy Parade.   
  • Subtles have the most new colors.  They are Petal Pink, Soft Sea Foam, Mint Macaron, Balmy Blue and Highland Heather.
  • Regals have two new colors, Shaded Spruce and Blackberry Bliss. Did you notice that some of the brights are now in the regals? What fun!

With the color revamp this was the perfect time to also change up our ink pads for the better.  The new ink pads have the same type of pad, foam, but with a defoamer added.  This will stop the bubbles that happen sometimes with the refills.  They have three huge features that I am really excited about.  The first, is that they are easier to open and second, they are stackable!  Yes, stackable!  They will take up a lot less room now.  The third is that they now will have a sticker that you can put on the inside of the ink pad so that when the pad is open you will be able to tell what color it is.  This is perfect for when you have multiple ink pads open.  This way you won't accidentally put a stamp that has Blackberry Bliss on it in the Daffodil Delight ink.  

Another great feature of the new ink pads is that they will still fit in the Color Caddy.  Yay!  

The ink colors that are retiring are:
Always Artichoke
Chocolate Chip
Elegant Eggplant
Island Indigo
Marina Mist
Perfect Plum
Pink Pirouette
Rose Red
Soft Sky
Tangerine Tango
Tempting Turquoise
Wild Wasabi
Wisteria Wonder 

Archival Ink: 
Basic Black 
Basic Gray

2016-2018 In Colors:
Dapper Denim
Emerald Envy
Peekaboo Peach
Sweet Sugarplum

Did any of your favorite colors retire?  I have to admit I am a little sad about Marina Mist retiring.  I use that color all the time.  I know I will fall in love with the new colors and forget all about the old colors.  Especially since the new colors are so pretty.  Would you like to see the new In Colors?  Here they are:

They are so bright and cheery!  I keep thinking of all the different color combinations I am going to be able to make with all the new colors mixed with the current colors.  

Don't forget to get your refills for your ink pads and cardstock in the retiring colors.  For a complete list of products that are being retired click the links below.

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper #145564, Mini Album, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com

I have been waiting to share this project with you since I finished them.  I had to wait until I gave them to my roommates at the Stampin' Up! OnStage before I could put them on here.  I had so much fun making these and creating the different aspects of it.  I got this idea from Cayleigh May when I saw it on Facebook.  

I had to change the measurements a little as she made hers with metric measurements.  I know I will be making more of this in the future.  

Here are some pictures of the inside and how I decorated it.  This project is too long to write out the measurements and directions on here.  I am going to try and do a video of this along with the embossing paste project in the near future.  I will say, it will probably be in May before I get a chance to make them.

This is the inside of the album.  On the left hand side you have two pockets where you can put ticket stubs or attach things to the pieces of decorated cardstock.  I put two of them in each pocket and held them together with little clothespins.  On the front of the green pocket I put the event we are at this weekend.

On the right hand side is the mini album part.  There are nine different flaps that I decorated and you can add different pictures or quotes to.  Here is a collage of the flaps.

I can't wait to see what they think of them!  Wouldn't these be fun to make for different occasions and give them away as gifts?  I am going to have to remember that!

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you are having a great weekend.
