Eastern Medallions Christmas Card

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! More Merry Messages stamp set, Eastern Medallions Thinlits #143725, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects, go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

 

I was on Pinterest and saw a card created by Lou Kutzelman that gave me the inspiration for today's card. The Eastern Medallions Thinlits are probably the most versatile thinlits I have ever seen.  You can do so many different combinations with the dies with a different look each time.   I used four of the dies to create the ornaments for this card.   The stamp set I used is the More Merry Messages, but it is retired.  When I made this card, forgot to share it with you earlier, it was before the new Holiday catalog had come out.  I wanted a beautiful Merry Christmas to go with the elegance of this card, but didn't have any that were current.  I remembered this stamp set and brought it out and it was exactly what I wanted.  You could use the Merry Christmas in the Star of Light stamp set that is in the annual catalog.  

To make this card you will need the following products:

Real Red Cardstock #102482

  • cut at 4 1/4" x 11" score at 5 1/2"
  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

Gold Foil Sheet #132622

  • cut at 3 1/2" x 3 7/8"

Whisper White Cardstock # 100730

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4" this is for inside the card

The Merry Christmas is stamped with Versa Mark ink and then heat embossed with the Gold Embossing Powder.  I popped up the top layer of Real Red cardstock because of the ribbon and piece of Gold Foil paper behind it.  It added a little bit of depth to the card.  

For the finishing touch I used the 1/8" Gold Ribbon for the string and bows on each of the ornaments.  There is something so classic looking about red and gold for Christmas.

Over the weekend we went to Michigan to take Erica the rest of her things and help her finish getting things settled in her room at my neice's apartment.  When she went up to Traverse City 6 weeks ago, she just took what she could fit in her car, which wasn't much.  When we walked into her room, it was just that, a room.  She didn't have any curtains up or pictures, nothing to make it her own.  By the time we got finished with it, it looks like a cozy room that is perfect for her. Just adding curtains and pictures and some decorations made a world of difference.  

While we were there we ate at some wonderful restaurants.  One of the places we went was a place on the bay called Harringtons By The Bay.  Oh, my goodness!   It was delicious!  My mom and sister had taken the girls and I there when we were in there in June.  I knew Mark would love it, because of all the seafood.  Here is a picture of the smoked whitefish pâté and my smoked whitefish.  They were both amazing and what's even more surprising, is I am not a big fish eater.  I loved all of it!

While shopping at Wal-Mart for things Mark decided he need to be a little silly.  I just can't take him anywhere.  LOL

We also went to Sleder's, which is the oldest restaurant in the whole state of Michigan.  It was built in 1882 and is still the same decor as it was when it was built.  We have to go there every time we go back home.

Mark and Erica went hiking on Saturday while I got to spend some time with my mom.  I totally forgot to take a picture of us.  I even told her the day before that I wanted to get a new picture.  Grr.  Here is a picture that Mark and Erica took while on their hike.

Look how blue the sky was.  It was beautiful on Friday and Saturday, just a little chilly.  I didn't care because we were spending time with Erica.

SCS Creative Crew September 2017 Project #3

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up Vintage Leaves stamp set #138802, Merry Cafe stamp set #144965, Retiform Technique, designed and created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

 

I have been wanting to try the Retiform Technique for a while.  With fall being our theme, I thought this would be a great time to try it.  I love it!  It is so fun and you get to use so many stamps from the one set.  You know how sometimes you only use 1 or 2 stamps from a set, this makes you use most, if not all of them.  

To make this project you will need the following products:

Early Espresso Cardstock #11968

  • 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"

The ink colors I used were:

  • Cajun Craze #126965
  • Cherry Cobbler 126966
  • Crumb Cake #126975
  • Crushed Curry #131173
  • Early Espresso #126974
  • Old Olive #126953
  • Tangerine Tango #126946

The stamp sets I used were the Vintage Leaves and Merry Cafe. Vintage Leaves has been around for a long time and is still one of my favorites.  I used the sentiment from the Merry Cafe stamp set, which is in the holiday catalog, but only part of it.  The whole sentiment is "Hello Fall!  it's pumpkin spice latte season".  To get only a section of the stamp I used a post it note and covered up the part I didn't want inked.  Before I stamped it onto my paper,  I took off the post it note and was able to stamp only the hello fall section.  You have to remember to take off the post it note before you stamp your paper though.  Don't ask how I know this.  Too many times I have had to fix my mistake.  

This is really my fourth and final project from SCS Creative Crew.  My third was the Fall Friday Week #2 project.  If you missed it click HERE to see it.

SCS Creative Crew September 2017 Project #1

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest stamp set #144783, Burlap Background Stamp #143982, Jute Twine #144625, Wink of Stella #141897, designed by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects, go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

Do you remember me telling you I was asked to be on the SplitcoastStampers Creative Crew?  This was my first month to participate and our theme was fall.  I was so excited when I heard our theme.  Fall is one of my favorite times of the year.  

We had to create a card and then do a stepped up card by adding embellishments, layers or whatever you wanted to make it better.  The card on the left is my original card and to step it up I added our new Jute Twine and Wink of Stella on the flower on the card on the right.

To make this card you will need the following products:

Early Espresso Cardstock #119686

  • cut at 4 1/4" x 11" score at 5 1/2"

Very Vanilla Cardstock #101650

  • cut 2 at 4" x 5 1/4"

Did you notice the Burlap Background stamp?  I just got this and I am in love with it.  For this card I used the Crumb Cake ink.  I think you will be seeing this stamp a lot this fall.  I stamped the flower on Very Vanilla cardstock with Daffodil Delight ink first, then Crushed Curry. The center was stamped with Early Espresso  ink and then fussy cut the flower.  The leaves were stamped with Pear Pizzazz and Garden Green ink and punched out with the new Leaf Punch.   

To create this flower there is 3 different stamps and sometimes they are kinda hard to line up.  Below is a quick video on how to line up your stamps so your flower is perfect every time.  

 

I will be posting the other 4 projects in my next 4 post.   On Wednesday I will be showing you my inspiration piece, Friday my second Fall Friday project and on next Monday I will be showing you my technique card.  

Thank you for stopping by today and have a Happy Labor Day!

Now, don't you want this suite?  Isn't it beautiful?

Also, on Friday is my first project from my Fall Friday series.  I have been working on making a video for you for this project.  Early this morning I made the video, and afterwards I went to watch it to see how it turned out.  I am not sure what I did, but I cut half of my area off.  You can only see the top part of everything I was doing and a lot of my desk.  Needless to say, I will be reshooting that video tonight.  Oh my goodness.  That's ok, because I made a couple of mistakes, so hopefully I will get it right the second time.  

 

Two more days until ...

Coffee Cafe Card and Thank You Treat


stampin up, Stampin' Up! Coffee Cafe stamp set #143677, Coffee Cafe Framelits #143745, designed and created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

Do you have a friend who is a coffee, latte, cappuccino, hot chocolate, hot apple cider or any other hot drink?  This is the perfect stamp set for you!  We made this card at stamp camp this month and the little treat box was my thank you gift for the attendees.  

To make the card you will need the following products:

Whisper White Thick Cardstock #140272

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

Pear Pizzazz Cardstock #131201

  • cut at 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"
  • cut at 2 1/4" x 3 1/4" - this is for the coffee cup
  • cut at 1" x 2 1/4" - this is for the lid

Soft Sky Cardstock #131203

  • cut at 2 1/4" x 3 1/4" - this is for the coffee cup
  • cut at 1 1/4" x 1 1/4" - this is for the heart

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut at 1" x 2 1/4"

Coffee Break Designer Series Paper #144155

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

When I adhered the two pieces of designer series paper onto the Pear Pizzazz cardstock, I put the top piece (the one with the dots) on first and then the brown piece.  They will overlap a little and that's ok. You will then put your ribbon on so that the top of the ribbon is even with the top of the brown piece of designer series paper.  

The paper on the green cup is from the same designer series paper as the background and I used a framelit from the Coffee Cups framelit set.    I cut out the heart from Soft Sky cardstock using the heart from the Wood Crate Framelits.   I then tied a triple loop bow and attached it with a glue dot.  I added a rhinestone on the top of the bow to give it a little bit of bling,  

Don't you just love how the little thank you gift coordinates with the card we made?  To make the little gift I used the tutorial from a wonderful and very talented demonstrator, Angie Juda with Chick n Scratch.

I have a special favor to ask all of you.  I am sure all of you have heard about Hurricane Harvey hitting Texas this weekend.  Our daughter, Emily, lives in Houston and they are expecting around 20 inches of rain over the next 5 days.  Houston likes to flood, so there is going to be a lot of problems from this hurricane.  If you think about it, could you please say for prayer for her and her best friends, Aaron and Tia.  They are staying together in Emily's apartment, which is on second floor, thank goodness.  It is a scary time for the three of them and for the parents back in Ohio.  None of us have ever been through a hurricane, so we don't know what to expect.  

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!  Love to all of you!

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!

Better Together Wedding Card

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Better Together Stamp Set #141736, Garden Trellis Embossing Folder #143741, Layering Oval Framelits #141706, designed and created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects, go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

 

At my Christmas Card class the other day, we were talking about what types of cards they wanted to make for my stamp camp class. Diana had mentioned that she needed a wedding card, so could we do one.  I said, "Sure, we haven't done a wedding card in a long time". I actually don't remember the last time I made a wedding card for a class.  I wanted a card that was simple, but elegant at the same time.  

The Garden Trellis Embossing Folder adds texture and elegance to it. I used the sentiments from the Better Together stamp set, with the inside sentiment saying All The Best for a future filled with love!  The little touch of gold with the 1/8" gold ribbon really brings it up a notch too.  

There were some ladies that wanted an anniversary card instead, so we dug out my old retired sets and found some great stamps that would work for the size of oval we had.  The current stamp sets did not have a big enough happy anniversary stamp in them.  This is why I don't get rid of too many of my retired stamps.  We still use them from time to time.  Plus, I just love them and don't want to get rid of them.  I am usually not a keeper, but when it comes to my craft supplies, I sure am.  How about you?

To make this card you will need the following products:

Thick Whisper White Cardstock #140272

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

Fresh Fig Cardstock #144242

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

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

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

I used stampin dimensionals on the ovals to pop up the sentiment. This card would be very easy to change the color of the cardstock to coordinate with the wedding colors.

We had a busy and fun weekend at our house.  We are in the process of updating our home, now that we are empty nesters.  We have to do something with our time, so why not work on the house.  On Saturday, we (I should say Mr. Wonderful) started working on painting the hall upstairs and trim work for the stairways.  Once the painting is done upstairs and the plumbing fixtures changed in the main bathroom, all we have to do is the carpet and then the upstairs is done!  Yay!

Our new countertops are getting measured this week and should be in at the end of September.  We are still discussing what color to paint the kitchen, which has been interesting.  The new knobs are on the kitchen cabinets and I really like them.  Who would have thought that just changing the knobs it can change the whole look of your cabinets.  We are not going to be doing anything with the floors at this time because I am still doing daycare.  I don't want to put in new carpet and having one of the babies either, pee, poop or puke on it. LOL  With my luck, that is exactly what would happen. 

A lot of people have been asking me when I am going to retire from daycare.  I really don't know.  I have been setting dates that I want to retire, and then God has a different plan.  So, for now it is whenever God tells me it is time to retire.  I can't believe in November it will be 29 years of having a daycare in my home.  It still amazes me, especially since I was never getting married or have children.  Boy, was God laughing at that one.  

On Sunday, I went to Sip and Dipity Paint Bar with a customer, now a new friend, Diana.  We had such a good time.  One side is pumpkins and the other side is a snowman.  Isn't that so cute?!  I love it!  Although, I love anything with snowman on it.

To make this card you will need the following products:

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!
