Good Morning!  I am so wide awake and have tons of energy this morning.  I am not quite sure why, but I will take it!  Today I have another cheery card for all of you.  We made this card at one of my Stamp Camps and it was a big hit.  

To make this card you will need the following:

Tranquil Tide Cardstock #144246

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
  • cut 2 at 2 3/4" x 2 3/4"
  • scraps for 2 1/2" circles

Pool Party Cardstock #122924

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

Daffodil Delight Cardstock #119683

  • cut 2 at 2 3/4" x 2 3/4"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut 2 at 4" x 5 1/4"

Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper #144137

  • cut at 1 1/2" x 5 1/4"'

To make the frame I used two different framelits, but cut them out at the same time.  I used one of the scalloped edge framelits from the Layering Square Framelits and one from the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  I put both of them on my paper making sure they were even all the way around and cut them at the same time on my Big Shot.  

Once you have those cut you are going to lay them on your piece of white paper to figure out where you are going to want to stamp your image.  Once you know, leave them on there and then you can stamp your image exactly where you want it.  

Add your piece of designer series paper and flowers and you are finished.  Wasn't that easy?  I did add a dimensional to each of the flowers so they are lifted off the paper a little.  Did you notice that they center of the flowers sparkle?  I used Wink of Stella!  I love Wink of Stella!

On the inside of the card I used two stamps from the Garden In Bloom stamp set.

Last Saturday my heart was filled with so much love!  I had my daycare Christmas party and we had such a good time.  I just love my little angels so much!  Here are some pictures from the day.

Look how adorable these little angels are!!!  I love them so much!

Of course we have to do a silly face picture

I was in the kitchen and turn around and look what I saw.  My precious angels looking at the nativity scene.   I bet God was smiling so big when he saw this.  I know I did!

Look who I got to kiss under the mistletoe!

 

I am so blessed to have these little angels in my life!  Thank you God!

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

Cool Treats (CT #125)

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Cool Treats stamp set #142982, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

It's time for CASE-ing Tuesday!  This week we were asked to CASE the picture below, which can be found in the 2017 Holiday catalog on page 48.  I went for a total different look and used a stamp set that I haven't used in a very long time, Cool Treats.   Why, I am not sure because I love it.  Lately, I have been trying to go back and use products from the annual catalog.  We have a lot of great stamps in there and I don't want to forget them.

Aren't the colors so bright and cheery?  I thought it was perfect since it is cold and overcast outside.  The colors remind me of summer, when it is a lot warmer.   Here is what the inside of the card looks like.

To make this card you are going to need the following products:

Berry Burst Cardstock #144243

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

Peekaboo Peach Cardstock #141417

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

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

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

I stamped an ice cream cone on the envelope, in opposite colors of the one on the inside of the card.  I popped up the sentiment with Stampin Dimensionals to give it height. 

I apologize for this post going out late today.  I was having trouble starting last night with logging in and the same this morning.   I finally was able to log in and finish this up.  I am going to keep this short so I can get this posted for all of you to see.  Thank  you for being understanding.

I hope everyone has a great day!

Falling Flowers/Happy Birthday Gorgeous Birthday Card

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Falling Flowers stamp set #139556, Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set #143662, Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack #144131, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects, go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

One of my favorite things about Stampin' Up!, and there are many, is how everything coordinates.  This card is a great example of that. You have the designer series paper, cardstock, ribbon and ink all the same color.  There is no guessing, no worrying about if they all match and are the same hue of the color.  Everything matches perfectly.  I love that!!!

To make this card you will need the following products:

Fresh Fig Cardstock #144242

  • 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"

Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack #144131

  • cut at 1 3/4" x 5 1/4"

I used a stamp from the Falling Flowers stamp set for the floral design on the front of the card, inside the card and on the envelope.  I stamped all images using the Fresh Fig ink and colored in the floral designs using the Powder Pink Stampin Marker.

To tie everything together I used the 1/2' Finely Woven Ribbon in Fresh Fig which I cut at 6" and 7".

This is another simple card that you could get so many different looks with just changing the colors on this card.  You could use the Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink and Tranquil Tide colors.

Can you believe tomorrow is Halloween and then it will be November 1st?  I really need God to slow time down just a little bit for me.  One good thing is we will get an extra hour of sleep on Saturday night because of Daylight Savings.  I will take that little blessing!

I hope you have an awesome week and thank you for stopping by!

Vintage Leaves and Stylized Birthday Card

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Vintage Leaves138802, Stylized Birthday stamp set #141828, Cable Knit Embossing Folder #143537, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects, go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

I was on Pinterest the other day and saw this awesome card created by Amy Koenders.  Thank you Amy for sharing your card with everyone.  I love how you can use it for anyone, male or female.

To make this card you will need the following products:

Soft Suede Cardstock #115318

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

Early Espresso Cardtock #119686

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

Crumb Cake Cardstock #120953

  • cut at 3 7/8" x 5 1/8"
  • cut at 2 7/8" x 2 7/8"

Very Vanilla Cardstock #101650

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

The easiest way for me to explain how I made this card is to go layer by layer.  We are going to start with the bottom layer made with the crumb cake cardstock.  I used the biggest leaf in the Vintage Leaves stamp set for all the background stamping.  

  • Crumb Cake layer:  use Sahara Sand ink and stamp off first before stamping on the cardstock
  • Soft Suede layer: use the Cable Knit embossing folder
  • Crumb Cake (top) layer:  Soft Suede ink and stamp off first before stamping on the cardstock.  Stamp the Happy Birthday with the Soft Suede ink full strength.
  • Very Vanilla inside: Sahara Sand ink stamp full strength and then stamp again turning slightly without inking your stamp again.  This will give you a shadow look.  I did this on the bottom right hand corner.

Stamping off means you ink up your stamp and stamp on a scrap piece of paper first.  Then stamp on your project without reinking your stamp.  This will give you a lighter image on your project. 

I used a sponge and Soft Suede ink to sponge around the edges of the the Crumb Cake pieces.  This softens it up and gives it an antique look.  

I adhered everything with Snail Adhesive except for the two top layers and there I used Stampin Dimensionals. 

I personally think this would make a great masculine card for fall birthdays or actually you could do it for any time of the year.

Today is hump day!!!  We are half way through our week!  Have a wonderful day today!

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' Sponging Video

I had a lot of fun making my second video and I think it turned out pretty good. The camera does shake when I ink my stamps, hopefully, in my next video I won't have that problem.  I am learning a lot about editing, cutting sections, adding sections and the fading.  I took a class at our Apple store about how to use iMovie and was a bit overwhelmed.  There is so much you can do, so I have a lot to learn.  

The products I used to make this card are:

Cajun Craze Cardstock #119684

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

Early Espresso Cardstock #119686

  • cut at 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"

Very Vanilla Cardstock #101650

  • cut 2 at 4" x 7 1/4"

The ink colors I used were:

  • Cajun Craze
  • Daffodil Delight
  • Early Espresso
  • Old Olive
  • Pear Pizzazz
  • Pumpkin Pie
  • So Saffron

The best thing with sponging on your projects is that there will never be two the same.  Each one is very unique from all the others.  

Here is my video!

While I was creating this card I was thinking of cool days, fresh crisp air, bonfires, pumpkins, leaves turning colors, football (Mr. Wonderful loves watching college football) and everything pumpkin spice.  Fall is my favorite time of the year.  Then I was wanting to put up my fall decorations, but since it is August, I don't think the time is right yet.   LOL

Daisy Delight with Happy Birthday Thinlit

stampin up, Stampin' Up! Daisy Delight stamp set #143669, Daisy Punch #143713, Delightful Daisy DSP #144137, 1/4" Double-Stitched Ribbon- Daffodil Delight #144416, Faceted Gems #144141, designed and created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

 

I was looking outside my window yesterday and was a little sad that our daisy's are finished blooming for the year.  We have a stray one here and there, but that's it.  This card was made with no stamp set or ink.  I used the Happy Birthday Thinlits and the Daisy Punch along with cardstock and the beautiful Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper.  Did you see the ribbon?  It is called double stitched ribbon which means there are "x" on one side and the other side looks like stitching.  

This is the ribbon I like so much that I have order 6 spools of it.  LOL Whenever I was placing an order at the beginning of the catalog launch I would add it on to my order.  I did that 3 times!  What is really sad is that I only have 2 left.  I guess I really do like it.  

To make this card you need the following materials:

Night of Navy Cardstock #100867

  • cut at 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" for the Happy Birthday
  • cut at 5 1/2" x8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"

Daffodil Delight Cardstock #119683

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut at 2 3/4 x 5" to punch out the flowers
  • cut at 3 1/2" x 4 3/4
  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4" for this inside of the card

Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper #144137

  • cut at 3 7/8" x 5 1/8"

To make the Happy Birthday easier to stick down I used our new Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets.  I was so excited when I saw them return in the annual catalog.  If you haven't tried them, you will love them once you do.  I had some left from when we use to sell them, but I have to admit I was hoarding them.  LOL  Now I can buy more!

I punched out 2 of the daisy flowers and staggered them to give it a fuller look, which I like.  For the center of the flower I used the Faceted Gems in gold (I used the largest sized one).  I attached my ribbon first and then added my daisy, but I laid my daisy down where I wanted it for a guide of where to put my ribbon.  The daisy is adhered using a dimensional to give it height and to go over the ribbon.

This is a fun and easy card to make for a birthday, especially a summer birthday.

It was a busy weekend at our house.  On Friday, for two of my angels, it was their last day with me taking care of them.  I have to say, this is the hardest part of my job.  I love these children so much and when they leave it breaks my heart.  Heck, I am crying while I am typing this and its been three days.  I know they will do great, but it is still hard.  I think the hardest part is, they won't remember me because they are 3 and 4 years old.  Can you remember anything when you were that age?

On Saturday I went to Stamp Away (it is a convention of different companies selling all things to do with paper crafting) with my best friend Robin.  We both wanted to go to the Stamp n Storage booth.  If you are in need of storage for your crafting supplies, I highly highly recommend them.  Click HERE for their website.  The two of us definitely bought out share of things from them.  I can always find places to add more pieces to what I already have.  

When we got home Mr. Wonderful and I went looking at countertops for the kitchen and carpet for our upstairs.  We are slowly trying to update our house (which is 18 years old) and are almost finished with the upstairs.  We decided on our countertops!  Yay! They have been ordered and hopefully they will be here in about 4 weeks.  Now, time to really starting to look at carpet.  

I hope you had a terrific weekend and have a marvelous Monday! Today is the beginning of a new week, make it special!

Colorful Seasons Card


Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Colorful Seasons stamp set #143726, Seasonal Layers Thinlits #143751, designed and created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

Don't you want to be sitting on this chair, relaxing and enjoying a beverage of your choice.  I know I sure would!   This card reminds me of summer, relaxing and the beach.  Does it get any better than that?  

I wanted to do a card that was bright and cheery so I used the bright colors of Daffodil Delight and Tempting Turquoise.  I also used the Colorful Seasons and High Tide stamp sets.  From the High Tide stamp set I used the sand stamp with Crumb Cake ink.  The rest is from the Colorful Seasons stamp set.  Did you notice the glass is two different colors?  To do this, I used our Stampin Markers.  Color each section with your marker (I used the big end of the marker) and then huff on the stamp.  The reason to huff on it is the ink your colored first was drying while you were coloring the other section on it.  To make sure you get a good image when you stamp you need to huff on the stamp to moisten the ink.  

To make this card you will need the following:

Daffodil Delight Cardstock #119683

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

Tempting Turquoise Cardstock #102067

  • cut at 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut 2 at 4" x 5 1/4"

Did you notice how the flowers on the branches and the chair and seat fit perfectly.  Isn't it wonderful!  Thank you Stampin' Up! for that.   There are so many color combinations you could use with these stamps.  The flowers, you could change with the seasons and Stampin' Up! has them all in a collection for you.  Subtles in the Spring, Brights in the Summer and Regals in the Fall.  What colors are you going to put together.  

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you have a great Sunday!

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.
