This is the first card that I made using the Ink Block technique.  It was the beginning of me going crazy with this technique and using it on anything and everything!  LOL  If you missed my other post, including the one on how to do the Ink Block Technique, click on the link below.

On this card I used Blueberry Bushel and Mint Macaron for my colors with the tree stamped in Early Espresso.  This is a great card to use for your male and female friends and family.  

I used the stamp sets Sheltering Tree and Picture Perfect Birthday.  The clear block for the technique was letter D.  

To make this card you will need the following paper.  For a complete list of all the products I used, please see the end of this post.

A Big Thank You (CT #165)

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! A Big Thank You stamp set #147377, Frosted Floral designer series paper #147800, Layering Oval Framelits #141706, CASEing Tuesday, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

The Frosted Floral designer series paper is definitely a paper you need to see in person to see for yourself how beautiful it is.  All of the pages have a shimmery frost on them.  This paper is absolutely gorgeous!  I was excited when I saw our inspiration card for this weeks CASEing Tuesday.  I knew right away which designer series paper I was going to use. 

Here is a picture of our inspiration card

40097805_10214130893920737_2739419730111627264_n

The card in the picture is a square card, but I made mine as a standard size (4 1/4" x 5 1/2") card.  I had a lot of fun stamping the sentiment on this card.  I used the A Big Thank You stamp set, Mint Macaron ink and a Tranquil Tide Stampin Marker.  

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! A Big Thank You stamp set #147377, Frosted Floral designer series paper #147800, Layering Oval Framelits #141706, CASEing Tuesday, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

To create this look, I first put Mint Macaron ink on my stamp. Then I took the Tranquil Tide marker and tapped it randomly on top of the Mint Macaron ink..  You are going to want to use the larger end of your marker, the one that looks like a paint brush.  You don't want to put too much of the Tranquil Tide on your stamp, because you want to be able to still see the Mint Macaron when you stamp it.  Before you stamp your image, you will want to huff on it first.  By doing this, you are making the ink moist again and ready for stamping.  

You can't see it in the picture, but I put Wink of Stella on top of the stamped image.  It just added the right amount of sparkle to go with the designer series paper.  

 To make this card you will need the following paper.  For a complete list of all the products I used, please see the end of this post.

I used Whisper White Thick as my card base and then added the designer series paper.   I wrapped the Silver Metallic Edged ribbon around the top section of the card and tied a knot.  The sentiment is popped using Stampin Dimensionals.

Wishing You Well

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Wishing You Well stamp set #147864, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

In one of my swaps that I participated in for the holiday catalog I received a beautiful card from Michelle Miller.  It was the same layout that I did, I just changed the colors and ribbon that I used.  I didn't have the stamp set Wishing You Well, because to be honest, I totally overlooked it.  When I saw Michelle's card and others online I fell in love with it and knew I needed to order it.   You know what caught my eye the most on the samples I saw?  The bow!  I have heard other demonstrators say they ordered this stamp set just for the bow and fell in love with the whole set.  I totally get that.  The bow is stunning!

This bow is one of the distINKtive stamps.  Look at the beautiful shading you get and it is all done with only stamping it once.  

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Wishing You Well stamp set #147864, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

I stamped the bow on the inside of my card and on the outside of my envelope using Gorgeous Grape ink.  

To make this card you will need the following paper.  For a complete list of all the products I used, please see the end of this post.

Cardstock:

Whisper White Thick

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

Gorgeous Grape

  • cut at 3" x 5"

Whisper White

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

It may appear that there is one sheet of white paper on the top layer, but it is actually two pieces.  I did my stamping first, then adhered the two pieces to the Gorgeous Grape cardstock.  I added the 1/8" Sheer Whisper White ribbon and then popped it up with Stampin Dimensionals.

One this card I used only 2 colors of paper, Gorgeous Grape and Whisper White, and one ink color, Gorgeous Grape.  It is a simple card, but so striking.

Sheltering Tree

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Sheltering Tree stamp set #137163, Sparkle Embossing Folder #141468, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gives, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects, go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

At my Stamp Camps this month I featured the Sheltering Tree stamp set.  I haven't used this stamp set in a very long time and I thought I needed to give it life again.  I wanted to do different cards with different techniques.  I went to Pinterest to see what I could find and this was one of the cards I found.  I can't find it back, so I don't know who originally created this card.  Thank you to the creator for sharing your beautiful card.

To begin making this card, you  are going to stamp your images on the small piece of Whisper White cardstock.  The tree is stamped with Crumb Cake ink and the tree leaves are stamped with Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive.  When you stamp the leaves, you are going to first stamp with the Pear Pizzazz and then with the Old Olive.  When you stamp with the Old Olive ink you will want to turn the stamp just a little so you are not stamping right on top of the Pear Pizzazz.  You want to be able to see both colors and this will make the tree look fuller too.

The grass and flowers are stamped using the Old Olive and the flower buds are stamped with Rich Razzleberry ink.  I am not sure if you saw the swing or not, but that is stamped in Soft Suede ink.

You are going to use the Layering Circle Framelits to cut out your circle in the Rich Razzleberry cardstock.  After you have finished cutting, then it is time to emboss the same paper with the Sparkle Embossing Folder.  

To make sure everything is lined up correctly, before you put any adhesive on any of your cardstock you are going to do a trial run.  Lay your stamped white piece of paper on your table and then line up where you want the the Rich Razzleberry piece to go.  This is where you can see if you need to trim your piece of white paper before you adhere it. 

Once you have everything lined up, put adhesive (I used Snail adhesive) around the circle on the back of the Rich Razzleberry piece.  With the white stamped paper on your table, lay the top layer over it and press it down.  Then take your ribbon and wrap it around the Rich Razzleberry cardstock, tie a knot and adhere all of this to a card base made from Crumb Cake cardstock.

To make this card you will need the following paper.  For a complete list of all the products I used, please see the end of this post.

Cardstock:

Crumb Cake

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

Rich Razzleberry

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

Whisper White Cardstock

  • cut at 3 1/2" x 3 1/2"
  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4" this will be for the inside of the card

On my inside piece of paper, I stamped flowers along the bottom and then I did the same thing on the bottom left hand side of my envelope.  On the envelope I just did a little bit in the corner, but you could easily go all along the bottom edge if you wanted too.

Today is the day that Mark is helping Erica move!  I had to take him to the airport this morning at 3:45am!  It's a good thing I am use to getting up early everyday.  He will get to Erica's around 10:30am and then they will get the moving truck and start loading.  They will be driving part of the way back to Ohio today and finish driving the rest of the way tomorrow.  

Then the fun begins!  We will be unloading the truck and unpacking all of her stuff.  I am sure glad that none of us have to work on Monday.  However, Monday will definitely be a day of labor in our house!

Swirly Frames

The other day I participated in a Use It or Lose It Creative Challenge with the training group I am involved with.  We were asked to use a stamp set that we bought from the annual catalog, but hadn't used yet.  I was looking through my stamps and came to the Swirly Frames stamp set.  I won this stamp set in April at the Stampin' Up! OnStage as a prize patrol and I remember being so excited when I got it.  I put it on my shelve when I got home and totally forgot about it.  

Since it was a new stamp set I thought it would be fun to use new colors with it.  I randomly stamped the circle images on Whisper White cardstock for the background.  I then punched out a 1 1/2" circle of each of the colors and added them in the bottom right hand corner.  

To make this project you will need the following products:

Cardstock:

Gorgeous Grape

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored at 4 1/4"
  • scrap for 1 1/2" circle

Gray Granite

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

Blueberry Bushel

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

Whisper White

  • cut 3 7/8" x 5 1/8" for the front of the card
  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4" for the inside of the card
  • scrap for the 1 1/2" circle

For the sentiment I used the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set and Blueberry Bushel ink.  The sentiment is popped up with a Stampin Dimensional.

You can totally change the look of this card by changing the colors you use.  You can make it masculine, feminine, a teen or a young child.

Only 16 more days until Erica moves home!  We are so excited!  Last August she moved to Michigan, my whole family is there, to try something new.  She has done great, but I knew she was thinking about the possibility of moving home.  Once she made the decision to come home, it has been amazing to see God's hand in this transition.  Everything has fallen into place and she already has a job!  She was able to transfer with her current company she works for.  What a blessing! 

Life has been very busy, but it is a good busy.  When she moved out, we kinda took over her bedroom.  LOL  We are now in the process of changing things around in the bedrooms, so she can have her room back.  This has been a great time to go through things to see if we really need them or if we can donate them.  Mr. Wonderful just loves when I get on a cleaning and throwing out rampage.  Especially since I have been on steroids for my asthma.  I have had a lot of energy!

I hope you have a terrific Thursday and thank you for taking time out of your day to stop in.

Stamp 'N Hop Blog Hop - Masculine

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Heartland stamp set #143892, Sunshine Sayings stamp set #141594, Watercolor Pencils #141709, Blender Pens #102845, Wood Textures designer series paper #144177, Layering Oval Framelits #141706, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

Welcome to our Stamp 'N Hop blog hop!  This month our theme is masculine projects.  You have just come from Vicky Wright's post, isn't her project beautiful!  

The other day I was in the mood to color, so I went through my stamp sets and picked out a couple to use.  I didn't have any particular style in mind, I just wanted to color.  I colored some other images, but I kept looking at this one from the Heartland stamp set.  This barn reminds me so much of the farm where I grew up.  Since our theme was masculine, I thought of my dad right away.  He would have loved this card.  

When I first started designing the card, I had just the black cardstock over the image, but it was missing something, I just didn't know what.  I didn't want to use an embossing folder, I wanted something different.  I was looking at my designer paper, seeing if I could get any ideas there, and that is when I saw the Wood Textures paper.  Once I found the paper, then I had to decide which one to use.  There were so many that would have worked, but I like how this one has some brown, black and gray colors in it.  I have all of those colors in the image, so it was the perfect one to use.  I love how it makes the barn image really stand out.

StampinUpHeartlandstampsetStampNHopBlogHopStampinScrapperJoyceWhitman2

I used our Watercolor Pencils with the Blending Pens to color the image.  Remember, when you use watercolors you need to Stazon ink when you stamp your images.  Otherwise, your stamped images will bleed into your coloring.  

For the Happy Birthday sentiment I used the Sunshine Sayings stamp set and stamped it with Real Red ink on Crumb Cake cardstock.  I cut it out using the Layering Oval Framelits.

One Sheet Wonder Class Cards

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Rooted In Nature stamp set #146482,  Caalligraphy Essentials stamp set #146783, Thankful Thoughts stamp set #141522, Nature's Poem Designer series Paper #146338, Happy Birthday Thinlits #143700, layering Oval Framelits #141706, Nature's Roots Framelits, Leaves Trinkets #146343,  created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects, go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

Last weekend I had my One Sheet Wonder Class where we used one sheet of 12" x 12" designer series paper to make 10 cards.  Oh my goodness, we had so much fun!  It was so nice to laugh and have fun together.  I am so blessed to have the customers, no friends, that I have.  I don't know what I would do without them.  

We used the Nature's Poem designer series paper along with the coordinating stamp set, Rooted in Nature.  I also used a couple of other stamp sets, Calligraphy Essentials and Thankful Thoughts and the Happy Birthday Thinlits.  I used the colors of Blackberry Bliss and Grapefruit Grove on all of the cards and the Leaves Trinkets for embellishments.

I used the diagram for how to cut the 12" x 12" paper, which was created by Sandra Jayne Wingate, that I found on Pinterest.  Thank you Sandra for sharing your diagram.

I love doing One Sheet Wonder classes, because you can use any other piece of designer series paper you have and get a total different look with the same layouts.  I don't know about you, but I have a lot of paper laying around, that I could use to make these cards.  I think I am going to need to take a weekend and make as many cards as I can from some of the designer series paper I have.  

Check back tomorrow for our Stamp 'N Hop blog hop.  Our theme this month is masculine.  

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you have a wonderful day!

I have to tell you a little story before I tell you about the above cards.  I made the first card, the one with the designer series paper on the bottom, first and showed it to Mr. Wonderful.  He told me he liked it, but thought it would look better with the patterned paper on the top.  I told him I didn't think so, but I would make one so he could see the difference.  I finished them, showed them to him and guess what?  He agreed it should be on the bottom.  LOL  I like both of the cards, but I do think the one with the designer series paper on the bottom looks better.  What do you think?

I told him that I was going to put this on my blog and I was going to make sure everyone knew I was right about the card.  He just laughed and said, but you call me Mr. Wonderful, so they already think I am wonderful.  Oh my goodness!  

Our inspiration card this week is:

34318336_10213553010434011_6052784169145073664_n

With the new holiday catalog coming soon, I wanted to use a stamp set that I hadn't used very often from the new catalog.  So, I went looking at my stamp sets and remembered I bought the Stitched All Around stamp set because I loved the framelits, Stitched Labels that went along with it.   This stamp set and framelits are available as a bundle, which means you save 10% when purchased together.  Why, I haven't used them very often, I have no idea!  I wanted to use one of the new designer series papers that I ordered from the promotion Stampin' Up! had last month.  I decided on the Tranquil Textures because I loved how the one side had all the circles and then there was a beautiful blue paper on the other side.

To make this card you will need the following products:

Cardstock:

Night of Navy

  • cut at 5 1/2" x8 1/2"

Mint Macaron

  • cut at 3/4" x 7 1/4"

Whisper White

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

  • cut at 3 1/4" x 3 3/4"

On the 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" designer series paper you are going to cut it from corner to opposite corner.  This is going to give you two pieces, so you can make two cards.  You will attach the Mint Macaron paper to the edge of the piece you just cut.  Adhere both of them to the Night of Navy cardstock.  Line up the designer series paper with the edges of the Night of Navy cardstock.  You will need to trim your edges.

I stamped the sentiments using Fresh Fig ink on to the blue side of the patterned paper.  I then used a framelit to cut out the sentiment and attached it with Stampin Dimensionals.  I thought the card needed a little bit more, so I added three pearls onto the sentiment piece.  The pearls really did make a difference in the final look of the card.

In only 25 more days, Erica will be moving home and boy, do we have a lot to do.  When she moved to Michigan, we kinda, changed her room.  Ok, we took her room and changed it into Mark's office.  Now, that she is moving back, we have to change a couple of the other bedrooms around to make an office for Mark.  So, in the end we will have Mark's office, Erica's room, master bedroom and guest bedroom (aka Emily's room when she visits).  While we are changing everything around, we are also going through everything and getting rid of things we haven't touched in years.  I can't believe how much stuff we have in our house.  

I can remember when we moved into this house 19 years ago, time sure has flown, looking around thinking, how are we going to put furniture in this whole house.  Now, I am thinking we have too much stuff in this house.  I will have to admit, I have taken over the basement as my crafting studio and I have a lot of things for my daycare.   So, if you take those two things out, there isn't quite so much.  I know, I am trying to justify it, but it really isn't working.  LOL

I can see a lot of Goodwill trips in the next couple of weeks.  It will be nice to get a lot of this stuff out of here though.  I did tell Mark that he is not allowed to touch my stampin studio though.  I will do that myself.  I would hate to see what he would throw out.  

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you are having a wonderful week!

I took advantage of the awesome designer series special that Stampin' Up! is having until 11:59pm tonight.  One of the designer series papers I bought was the Twinkle, Twinkle pack.  When I was looking at all the different designs of the paper, I came across the one I used on the card above.  My eyes were drawn immediately to it.  I love the strips and the colors.  

Our inspiration this week is pictured below.

I kept the overall layout the same this week.  On the card above they used the Colored doilies, but since I didn't have them I used the Pearlized Doilies.  I haven't used doilies much, not sure why, but I really liked them on this card.  I think I am going to have to start using them more.

I used all of the colors in the designer series paper to create all the different elements of this card.  I then stamped three little butterflies in Pool Party and the sentiment with Night of Navy ink.  To finish the project I added Share What You Love Artisan Pearls (Petal Pink ones) around the sentiment and added Wink of Stella to the center of the daisy. 

I have a tip for you: remember when you are designing your card to always do so in odd numbers.  Three butterflies, three pearls and one flower.

Coffee Cafe Card (CT#157)

  Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Coffee Cafe stamp set #143677, Coffee Cups Framelits #143745, Banner Triple Punch #138292, Detailed Trio Punch #146320, CASEing Tuesday, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

 I need to first start this blog post off with an apology.  I try very hard to have my post online by 8:00am at the latest on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturdays.  Today, however, it is not getting post until a lot later.  I have been trying to play catch up since we got back from Disney on the 14th of July.  We then had to go out of town over the weekend for a wedding that Emily was in, which meant I got nothing done over the weekend.  Yesterday was Emily's last day here before leaving for Texas very, very early this morning.  I wanted to spend as much time as possible with her, since we won't see her again until Thanksgiving.  

So, needless to say, I haven't been on top of my postings as I usually am.  I will be working very hard this week to get back on track and get ready for my three classes this week.  All I can say is I am so glad I have my best friend, Robin, to help me get everything done.  I don't think I would be able to do it with out her this week.  

Now, on to today's post.  We are going to be making the above card at my Stamp Camp classes this week.  Every month I pick a stamp set to feature and this month it is the Coffee Cafe stamp set with coordinating framelits, Coffee Cups.   I used the CASEing Tuesday card, pictured below, for my inspiration.

I have the same layout as the above card, but I used a different stamp set and the Share What You Love designer series paper.  

To make this project you will need the following products:

Cardstock:

Black

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
  • scraps for the lids of the cups

Grapefruit Grove 

  • cut at 3 1/2" x 3 3/4"

Whisper White Cardstock 

  • cut at 3 1/4" x 5 1/5" for the coffee cups
  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4" for the inside
  • scrap for the beans

Share What You Love Designer Series Paper

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

I used the new Detailed Trio punch for the corners on the Grapefruit Grove cardstock and the Banner Triple Punch on the designer series paper.  For the banner punch you will want to cut your paper just a hair under 2" to fit into the punch.  

I used snail on everything, except the Grapefruit Grove cardstock that is adhered using the Stampin Dimensionals.
