Yesterday I had a workshop with 8 wonderful ladies that I met for the first time.  Thank you Roselin for sharing your friends with me and picking me to have your workshop.  It was so much fun!  

I hope everyone has a marvelous Monday and week!

Happy Celebrations

stampin up, Stampin' Up! Happy Celebrations #143012, 2017 Occasions catalog, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking, 3D projects and more go to stampinscrapper.com

Do you need an easy peasy birthday card?  I have the perfect one for you.  This card could be masculine or famine depending on the colors you use.  You could even dress it up more with a ribbon or rhinestones.  

To make this card you will need the following products:

Marina Mist Cardstock #119682

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

Pool Party Cardstock #122924

  • cut at 5 3/8" x 4 1/8"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

I used the Marina Mist and Pool Party to stamp the front of the card. The Happy Celebrations stamp set is a two step stamp set.  You stamp the Marina Mist part first and then Pool Party.  You are finished! Wasn't that fast and easy?

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter.  We had a great time spending the afternoon with the grand Randall's.  Yesterday, I got to see one of my good friends, Lisa, get baptized.  It was such a wonderful event.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you have a marvelous Monday.

I can finally share my display board with you!!!  I had so much creating with the  products from the new 2017-2018 catalog.  It has been hard keeping it quiet, but now I don't have to!!!!  You are going to love the new catalog.  I want everything in it!

I will be showing you all each product individually throughout the next month or so.  

I had such a great time at OnStage.  I am not sure why I haven't gone before, but I know I will be going again.  Here are some pictures from my fun filled weekend.

On Friday while sitting up my display I got to meet Connie Stewart, one of my favorite demonstrators.  She is such a sweetheart!  I got to talk with her for about 20 minutes, which was the best part of my day. On Saturday I was able to get a picture with her.  I am not crazy about the look on my face, but I only got one picture with her, so I will take it.

The 3 MUSKETEERS!!!! Carla, Kim and I hung out together all weekend.  I haven't laughed that hard in a long time.  We had been talking with each other on Facebook and text for a while, so it was nice to finally meet in person.  I can say, I have found 2 very good friends over the week.  They are the best!

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.

  • cut at 7 1/8" x 8"
  • scraps for the ice cream cone

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!

To make this card you will need the following products:

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut at 4 1/4" x 11" score at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2" on long side
  • cut at 3 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 2 1/8" and 4 1/4" on long side
  • cut at 3" x 3 1/4"

Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper #142778

Flowers:

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

Checkered Paper:

  • cut at 3 1/4" x 4"
  • cut 2 at 1 7/8" x 3 1/4"

The first thing is to adhere your designer series paper on to the two white pieces of paper.  Put adhesive on the back of the right hand section of the smaller white piece and adhere it to the biggest section of the flower paper towards the right side.  See picture above for placement.

Fold both sections so you can see where you will need to put the adhesive on the left hand side.  Remember only put adhesive on the section that is going to be attached to the big white piece.  You know how I know that, because I have put adhesive on the whole section, even after I tell myself not to do it.  

Stamp the 3" x 3 3/4" piece of white paper with Mint Macaron ink towards the top.  You want to make sure you have room for your flowers.  I have also added flowers on the two the panels.  You can see them in the picture above.  I then added a medium sized rhinestone in the center of all the flowers. 

I have had a few crazy days with designing my scrapbook pages for my Scrap Along class and working on my swaps for OnStage. I can say they are finished!!!  I am now busy working on my social media, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram and this blog.  I am trying to get everything before I leave on Friday for OnStage.  

Can I tell you I am so excited!   I can't wait to see Cathy, Carla, Kim, Beth and Lynn.  We are going to have so much fun.  I will be posting pictures on my Facebook page, Stampin Scrapper  and my Instagram during the weekend.  Click on the links in the previous sentence to see all of the pictures.

Thank you for stopping by and have a Marvelous Monday and week!

Double Front Fold Card with Avant Garden

Stamin Up, Stampin' Up! Avant Garden stamp set #143272, 2017 Sale-A-Bration, Double Front Card, Designed by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects, go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

By now I am sure you have realized just how much I love the Avant Garden stamp set from Sale-A-Bration.  I promise this is the last one. This card is called a double front card and is so easy to make.  

To make this card you will need the following products:

Melon Mambo Cardstock #115320

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 6 1/4 score at 2"

Daffodil Delight Cardstock #119683

  • cut 2 at 2 3/4" x 3 3/4"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut at 4 3/4" x 7 1/2" score at 3 3/4"
  • cut 2 at 2 1/2" x 3 1/2"

The first thing I did was my stamping.  I did the flower for the front and then on the inside I used the birthday sentiment from the stamp set.  One the inside of the card in the lower left hand corner I stamped one flower image in the melon mambo.

I attached the white cardstock to the melon mambo, making sure I was close to the fold line, but not too close.  If you put the whisper white right on the line, the flap of them melon mambo will not lay nice.  I would try it first before you put your adhesive on it so you know exactly where you want to put it.  

You will then attach one of the daffodil delight pieces on top of the large white piece of paper, making sure it is centered.  Attach the white piece with the birthday sentiment.

For this step you will want to make sure you attach the white piece with the flower on the daffodil delight and add the ribbon.  Here is a little tip for you.  When you put on your ribbon, you will want to make sure that the edges of your ribbon are on the left hand side of the yellow paper.  You want your ribbon to look nice on the back, because you can see a little of the back of the yellow paper. You can see what I mean in the picture below.  I then added my bow with a glue dot.  It gives it a nice finished look.

You want to make sure that your yellow pieces match up perfectly and then adhere.  PUT TAPE ONLY ON THE LEFT HAND SIDE.  You know how I know that, because I put tape on the whole thing out of habit many times.  You can see what I am trying to explain in the picture below.

Isn't this card so fun?  I love it!  The best part is that it is so easy to make.  

Since last week was the beginning of Spring, I thought I would do a craft project with my girls.  Here is a picture of the flower garden they made.  They loved the punched flowers, using some retired products and the spring colors.

Hello on this wonderful Monday!  I have been working on my projects for my Scrap Along class on Saturday all weekend, that I totally forgot to do a blog post for today.  This card though is worth the wait!  

On Friday night I had my Creative Fold Card Class,  it was such a fun class.  One of my customers from South Carolina was here for her daughter's baby shower and was able to join us.  It was so nice to have her here and catch up.  

We made this card, called the Four Fold Card with the Avant Garden, Butterfly Basics and Gorgeous Grunge stamp sets.  I am in love with this card.  I think I am going to be making one for my mom for her birthday next month.  She loves butterflies and flowers, so it will be perfect.

Here is a picture of what it looks like all opened up.

I have included each step with the products needed for this card.  I thought this might be an easier way to explain how to make the card. You will need the following products:

Elegant Eggplant Cardstock #105126

  • cut at 11 1/2" x 5 1/2" score at 1/4", 3 1/4" and 7 1/4" on the 11 1/2" side PLEASE NOTE THIS USES A PIECE OF 12 x 12 PAPER
  • turn your paper so the the 1/4" line you just scored is at the top of your Simply Scored Scoring Tool and score at 5/8" but ONLY to the last score line.  You don't want to score on the biggest section as this is where you will be adding additional layers and stamping.
  • trim off the little section that was created by this score line
  • accordion fold your paper so the biggest section is on the right hand side as in the picture above. 
  • put a strong adhesive on the 1/4" piece (this piece should be your last fold and it should be laying on top on the left hand side)
  • cut a piece at 2 3/4" x 4 1/4"
  • attach the above piece to the adhesive you put on the 1/4" section (this is going to create your first fold)
  • you will need to cut off the little 1/4" section that sticks up above the 2 3/4" x 4 1/4" piece of cardstock
  • you will need scraps for the two butterflies

Wisteria Wonder Cardstock #122922

  • cut 2 at 2 1/2" x 4" - this is for the front panel
  • cut 2 at 3 1/4 x 4 3/4" - this is for panel 2 and 3
  • cut 1 at 4" x 5 1/4" - this is for the biggest panel

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

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

You can stamp and decorate each panel as you wish.  

I am almost positive you will see this type of card from me again.  It is so easy to make, but looks very impressive.  My kind of card!

I hope everyone has a fabulous week!

Make A Medallion

stampin up, Stampin' Up! Make A Medallion stamp set #143274, Banners For You stamp set #141710, Lovely Lace Embossing Folder #133737, 2016-2017 Annual Catalog, 2017 Sale-A-Bration, designed by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D items go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

I haven't really used the colors, Tip Top Taupe and Rich Razzleberry, together and I am not sure why.  They are so pretty together.  The Sale-A-Bration stamp set Make A Medallion is perfect for these two colors.  There are so many color combinations you could use with this stamp set.  

An easy way to add texture to any card is with an embossing folder. The Lovely Lace embossing folder was perfect with this stamp set. They really compliment each other.  

To make this card you will need the following products:

Tip Top Taupe Cardstock #138336

  • cut at 5 /12" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
  • cut at 1/2" x 4"
  • scrap for the "For You" banner

Rich Razzleberry Cardstock #115316

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

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

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

I first stamped the image in the Rich Razzleberry ink and then the second step in Tip Top Taupe.  I used the Layering Circle Framelits for the white and Rich Razzleberry circles.  

The sentiment was stamped using the Banners For You stamp set and punched out using the Classic Label punch. 

I added two Rhinestones to add a little bling to the card.

I have been busy working on my projects for my Creative Fold Card Class on Friday.  This class is a lot of fun and one of my customers from South Carolina will be able to come.  I can't wait to see her!

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Flash Back Friday with Avant Garden

Stampin up, Stampin ' Up! Avant Garden #143272, Stitched Shapes Framelits #145372, Layering Oval Framelits #141706, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.comJoyceWhitman

I was trying to figure out what card to make for my Stamp Camp last week when the card on the left fell off my wall and landed right at my feet.  I don't know if you noticed in my pictures of my craft room that I had cards hanging up on the wall.  The cards up there are the first ones that I made when I started Stampin' Up!  

I picked up the card and instantly knew I could make this card, change the colors, stamp set and how I did the sentiment and I could have a new card!  The card on the right is the one we made at Stamp Camp using the Avant Garden stamp set from Sale-A-Bration.

I have used the small flower and leaves a lot from this stamp set a lot, but I haven't used this flower.  I love how it turned out. Do you know how I made the background?  I used my clear blocks (the ones we use with our clear and photopolymer stamps) and my ink pads. You take you clear block and ink it up with what ever ink pad you would like.  You then stamp it on to your paper and make sure you press hard all over the block to get the best coverage.  You won't get a solid image, but that is ok.  You want a little bit of shading in ink, it gives it character.  I used the following colors, blocks and the order I stamped them.

  • Block H with Blushing Bride ink with the long side going up and down
  • Block E with Pool Party ink with the long side going up and down
  • Block B with Mint Macaron ink with the long side going up and down
  • Block A with Mint Macaron ink with the long side going up and down at the top of the paper and                                                                                                         with the short side going up and down at the bottom of the paper

To stamp the flowers, I stamped it twice, I used black Memento ink.  I also stamped the inside of the card and the envelope with one of the flowers.  

I stamped the sentiment on Whisper White paper and used the Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut it out.  The Layering Oval Framelits with Blushing Bride paper made the back layer of the oval.  I used Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the ovals to the paper.  To give it a little bit of bling I added 3 of the largest size Rhinestones on the top left hand corner.   

Here is a picture of just the card that we made at Stamp Camp.
