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

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.  

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Stitched All Around stamp set #146632, Stitched Labels Framelits #146828, Stitched All Around Bundle #148374, Tranquil Textures designer series paper #146331, Basic Pearls #144219, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

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"

Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper

  • cut at 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" 
  • 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.

34308089_10213552975713143_6585709895985659904_n

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.

To make this card you will need the following products:

Cardstock:

  • cut at 2 3/4" x 5 1/2"

  • a piece big enough for a 2" circle

StampinUpEnjoyLifeCASEingTuesday158StampinScrapperJoyceWhitman5

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.  

34481522_10213552925431886_7539142449004806144_n

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"

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 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.

On the 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" piece of cardstock score all sides at 1 3/8" on all sides and fold on your score lines.  Cut on the score line from the edge of the paper to the score line.  You will do this on two sides of the paper (across from each other).  I also cut a little bit to the side of the score line off to make it easier to attach it to cardstock and make sure it was straight.  I used Tear and Tape on the tabs, but you can use the Multipurpose Liquid Glue too.  Fold up the sides and tabs and create the box for the bottom of the holder.

On the 4 1/8" x 4 1/8" cardtock score at 3/4" on all sides.  Before you do any cutting you will want to take a framelit from the Layering Circle Framelits and cut it out.  This is going to create the hole for the candle to sit in.  After cutting it out you will do the same steps as above to create the box.  This will fit inside of the box you made above.  However, do not put it in the box yet, as you need to do a couple more steps first.

For the back of the box you are going to take the 2 5/8" x 8 1/2" piece and score it at 4 1/4".  Once scored fold the paper and half and glue it together.  I used snail adhesive on this step, but you can use whatever adhesive you have available.  I then put Tear and Tape on the bottom of the piece and adhered to the INSIDE of the box.  This is going to be the back of your box.  You want to make sure you put it in the inside of the box, not the outside.  

Now it is time to add your designer series paper on to the section you just did (the back piece) and on the sides and front of the bottom box.  Add the section that holds the candle and you are almost finished.

Now you can decorate it any way you would like.  I used the Happy Birthday greeting from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set along with the Pop of Petals stamp set.  The Pop of Petals has a coordinating Four Petal Flower Punch which is also available as a bundle.  I love that you are able to get the Pop of Petals stamp set and the four petal Flower punch as a bundle and save 10%!  To punch out the sentiment I used the Classic Label punch.  I added Rhinestones to the center of the flower and on the sentiment.

Healing Hugs and Itty Bitty Greetings

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Healing Hugs stamp set #146530, Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set #146667, Tufted Embossing Folder #146335, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects, go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

When I made my card for Patti, my downline, I loved how the Gorgeous Grape and Highland Heather colors looked with the color white.  So, when I began designing cards for Stamp Camp I knew I wanted to make a card with those colors.  I had a customer request anniversary cards for one of our cards this month and I thought this card was perfect for that.  

I used the Healing Hugs and Itty Bitty Greetings stamp sets and the Tufted embossing folder.  The Healing Hugs stamp set is one of the DistINKtive stamps.  These stamps are a little different than our normal stamps in that they are totally flat.  You stamp them the same way as all of our other stamps, but they give you all the different lays of color.  This stamped image is absolutely beautiful.

I did learn a trick with these stamps to get a great image. This is one time I was glad I was interrupted.  I had been struggling with getting the perfect image and was ready to give up.   I had inked up my stamp one more time when Mark came down to my stampin studio to ask me a question.  It wasn't maybe 15-20 seconds later that I stamped the image and guess what?  It came out perfect!  So, when you ink up your stamp flip it over and you will see the little bubbles pop, wait maybe 15 seconds,  and then stamp your image.  It is so much prettier when you do this than when you stamp immediately after inking up your stamp.  

To make this project you will need the following products:

Cardstock:

Whisper White Thick

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"

Whisper White

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

I cut out the flower and leaves with the awesome Paper Snips and colored the flower with Wink of Stella.

Today is a sad day as we are heading back home from our week long vacation at Disney.  I can't wait to share with you some of the highlights.  I know we are going to be totally exhausted, but it is a good exhausted.  If you get a chance I would love it if you could say a prayer for all of us traveling.  Erica will be traveling again by herself.  It will be hard to say good bye, especially since her flight is earlier than ours.  She will have to go to the airport by herself, which is going to be so hard.  Thank you for your prayers!

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

For my post today I wanted to make a card that used one of the designer series paper that is included with Stampin" Up! Buy 3 get 1 FREE promotion.  See all the details at the end of this post.  I used the Garden Impressions designer series paper along with the Calligraphy Essentials stamp set.  There is a project kit, Calligraphy Essentials, that coordinates with the stamp set I used on this card.  

To make this card you will need the following products:

Cardstock:

Melon Mambo

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

Blueberry Bushel

  • cut at 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"

I used the Daisy punch to punch out two flowers from Daffodil Delight cardstock and added a 1/2" circle in Melon Mambo cardstock.  I added Wink of Stella on the center of the flower. I popped up the daisy with Stampin Dimensionals.

For the sentiment I used the Melon Mambo Stampin Write marker to color in the "hello" from the Calligraphy Essentials stamp set which  stamped in Stazon ink.  I cut it out with the Layering Oval Framelits and popped it up with Stampin Dimensionals.
