Flourishing Phrases (CT140)

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Flourishing Phrases, 141534, Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper #145564, 3/8" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon #144229, Layering Oval Framelits #141706, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

There are a couple of my favorite products on this card.  The Sweet Soriee Designer Series Paper and Stitched Shapes Framelits.  At my Stamp Camp on Friday night we were just talking about how nice the Stitched Shapes Framelits really add to the card.  

My inspiration for this CASEing Tuesday card came from the card below.  It is a square card, but I changed mine into a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card.  

27752405_10212715240410284_3506182842733166435_n

I wanted to use this card as a thank you card for orders from a workshop.

To make this card you will need the following products:

Cardstock:

Marina Mist

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

Sweet Sugarplum 

  • cut at 2 3/4" x 4 1/4"

  • cut at 2 1/2" x 4 1/4"

Whisper White

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

I wrapped the Sweet Sugarplum Stripped Ribbon around the card first and then adhered the layers.  I tied a knot around the ribbon after everything else was on the card.  Then I knew how much I needed to trim my ribbon.  I popped up the sentiment with Stampin Dimensionals.

IMG_1803

On April 7th we have our Stampin' Up! OnStage, it is like a conference, and I can't wait.  On Friday night they have Center Stage for any demonstrator that has the title of Silver Elite or above.  I am so excited to be going.  This is the first one I am going to since I was promoted to Silver Elite.  I heard that it is a lot of fun.  This year the theme is 80's since Stampin' Up! started in 1988.  I am however, not dressing up.  I didn't like to do it as a kid and I still don't.  I am thankful I am not the only one not dressing up.  

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

A Good Day with Tutti Frutti

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! A Good Day stamp set #145873, Tutti Frutti Cards and Envelopes #147242, 1 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch #146139, Classic Label Punch #141491 created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

Do you need a fast and simple card?  I have a perfect one for you today.  If you have been reading my blog, you know I love the Tutti Frutti cards and envelopes.  Well, today I used them in a little bit of a different way than the normal card base.  

Today, I cut up the Calypso Coral and Pool Party card bases and added them to a base from Calypso Coral cardstock.  This way, I will get more cards out of this awesome set. 

The sentiment and little bird came from the A Good Day stamp set in the Occasions catalog.  Did you see the scalloped circle behind the bird?  That is made from the new 1 3/8" Scalloped Circle punch that is on the same page as the stamp set.  There is also a 1 1/8" scalloped circle punch available.

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! A Good Day stamp set #145873, Tutti Frutti Cards and Envelopes #147242, 1 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch #146139, Classic Label Punch #141491 created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

To make this project you will need the following products:

Cardstock:

Calypso Coral

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

Pool Party

  • piece of scrap for the 1 3/8" scallop circle

Whisper White

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"
  • scrap for the sentiment and 1 1/4" circle punch

Tutti Frutti Cards and Envelopes

  • cut the Calypso Coral at 4" x 5 1/4
  • cut the Pool Party at 1" x 5 1/4"

I used the Blends markers to color the little bird.  These have been so popular that Stampin' Up! hasn't been able to get them in fast enough to keep up with the demand.  To help with backorders and to make sure everyone who wants them gets them, they are not going to be available to purchase until the new Annual Catalog in June.  If you have used them, you understand why they are so popular.  If you haven't, you will have to try them when they are available again.  I absolutely love them!  I am really hoping that when they are in the new catalog, there will be more colors.  

StampinUpAGoodDaystampsetTuttiFrutticardsandenvelopes2018SaleABrationStampinScrapperJoyceWhitman4

The first thing I did to make this card was adhere the Pool Party strip to the Calypso Coral printed paper.  I went up about 3/4 of an inch from the bottom.  I then wrapped the 3/8" Classic Weave Ribbon around the above pieces and had it lay half way on the Pool Party strip and half on the Calypso Coral and tied it in a knot.  Adhere all of that to the Calypso Coral Base. 

I stamped the little bird and the sentiment from the A Good Day stamp set, using the Memento ink, and punched them out with the Classic Label Punch and the 1 1/4" Circle Punch.  The bird and sentiment are popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I added one medium Rhinestone at the end of the sentiment for some bling.   

The little bird is also stamped on the inside of the card and on the envelope.  You never send out a naked envelope (per Shelli, the co founder of Stampin' Up!).

I do want to give credit to Ronda Wade for her design of this card.  We made this card along with a couple of other ones when I was at Ronda's Leadership Conference in February.  

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

Embossing Paste meets Embossing Powder

  • Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Daisy Delight stamp set #143669, Lovely Wishes stamp set #145924, Embossing Paste #141979, Emboss Powder #141636, Daisy Punch #143713, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

Oh My Goodness!!!  I can't even begin to tell you how much fun this technique was to make and how beautiful it is.  I would have never thought of this idea.  Thank God, someone did and was kind enough to share with everyone.  I don't remember who I first saw this technique done with, so who ever you are, thank you, thank you, thank you.  

I don't know if you can see on the picture or not, but I put Copper Embossing Powder over the Embossing Paste and heat set it.  It is so fun to make and it is so impressive when it is done.  We made these in my technique class and the ladies were crazy about them.  

StampinUpDaisyDelightLovelyWishesEmbossingPasteTechniqueStampinScrapperJoyceWhitman4

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

Cardstock:

Night of Navy

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

Whisper White

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

Wild Wasabi

  • cut at 2" x 3 1/2"

Copper Foil Sheet

  • scrap for 1/2" circle

To make this card you have to work kinda fast.  You don't want to let the paste dry before you put the embossing powder on it.  The first thing I did was put on the Embossing Paste using the brick masks from the Patter Party Decorative Masks.  As soon as I had that finished added the copper embossing powder to all of the embossing paste. 

I had to put sprinkle the embossing powder over it a couple of times to make sure it adhered the way I wanted it to.  You then use your heat gun to warm up the embossing powder so it melts.  You will have to hold the heat gun a little bit longer than you do when you use the embossing powder with the VersaMark ink.  It is so fun to watch the embossing powder melt into the paste.   Such a neat effect!

You will notice on the picture that I did not put the Embossing Paste all over my card, just part of it.  You can do whatever you would like to do with yours.  

I stamped my sentiment from Lovely Wishes and the flower is from the Delightful Daisy stamp set using the Night of Navy ink.  I punched out the daisy with the coordinating punch.  I used the Leaf punch that was carried over from the holiday catalog.  I sure hope they keep both of those in the new annual catalog which is coming out in June.

For a final touch I added a 1/2" circle from the Copper Foil Sheets and put it in the middle of the daisy.  I also stamped the daisy on the inside of my card and on the envelope.

I hope you will give this fun technique a try.  If you have any questions, please let me know. 

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

CASEing Tuesday with Party Panda (CT#139)

 

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Party Pandas stamp set #147221, Tutti-Frutti Cards & Envelopes #147242, Layering Circle Framelits #141705, Stitched Shapes Framelits #145372, Classic Label Punch #141491, Balloon Bouquet Punch #140609, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

I had made a different card for today's CASEing when I realized I had again used the Lovely Wishes stamp set.  So, I put that one on the side and created a whole new card using the Party Pandas.  This was a  fast card that I made in less than 10 minutes.  Lately, I have been into the simple and easy cards.  

Here is the card that we used as our inspiration this week.

27971556_10212715239410259_165847463723558291_n

I took a little bit of everything for this card.  I used the card base from the Tutti Frutti cards and envelopes in the Sale-A-Bration first brochure, they have it as the second layer of their card.  I used the strip and the circle as they did.  I, however, use a different stamp set and color scheme.  Make sure you check out all of the other creations on FaceBook on the CASEing Tuesday page.  Click HERE to see it.

To make this project you will need the following products:

Tutti-Frutti Cards and Envelopes #147242

  • I used the Lemon Lime Twist card base

Cardstock:

Black

  • cut at 1" x 5 1/2"
  • scrap for balloon

Lime Lemon Twist

  • cut at 3 1/4" x 3 1/4

Whisper White

  • cut at 3 1/4" x 3 1/4"
  • scrap for sentiment

I stamped the panda with the balloon on Whisper White cardstock and then cut it out with the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  I layered it on top of a piece of Lemon Lime Twist that was cut out with the Layering Circle Framelits.  This is adhered with Stampin Dimensionals.  

The sentiment was stamped with Black ink and punched out with the Classic Label Punch.  I added the black balloon, the smaller balloon on the Balloon Bouquet punch, with a Stampin Dimensional.  I used the White Stampin Chalk Marker to make the highlight on the balloon.

Stained Glass Rose Wonder with Blends Markers

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Rose Wonder stamp set #140697, Daffodil Delight Blends #144585, Rich Razzleberry Blends #144583, Old Olive Blends #144573, Rose Garden Thinlits #140619, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

The Stained Glass technique is such a pretty technique.  You don't really see how beautiful it is in a picture, you need to see it in person.  This technique looks like it is complicated, but the truth is, it is so easy!  

The biggest trick to doing this the paper you use to make it.  Can you guess what it is?  It is Vellum!  The first thing I did was stamp the image from Rose Wonder stamp set, with VersaMark ink and then add silver embossing powder.  I then heat set it with the heating tool.  I also did this technique with the sentiment and then cut it out using the Rose Garden Thinlits.

Once I had that finished the embossing, I flipped over the piece of Vellum, so the back was facing up.  I used the Daffodil Delight, Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive Blends markers in the dark shades to color the rose.  Wasn't that easy?!

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Rose Wonder stamp set #140697, Daffodil Delight Blends #144585, Rich Razzleberry Blends #144583, Old Olive Blends #144573, Rose Garden Thinlits #140619, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

Here's another trick for you!  You know how adhesive shows through Vellum and none of us like that.  Usually,  you have to strategically place it so it is behind a stamped image, or sentiment, any place you can hide the adhesive.  Well, I have a way that you don't have to do that anymore.  You take our Multipurpose Liquid Glue and put some on a clear block, yes it comes right off, or a paper plate.  You then take one of our sponges (I cut mine into either 6 or 8 pieces), dab it in the glue and then tap, do not wipe or smear it on, it on the back of the Vellum.  Lay it on top of they white piece of cardstock and it adheres perfectly without any of it showing.  Isn't that awesome?

StampinUpRoseWonderstampsetBlendsmarkersStampinScrapperJoyceWhitman6

I then added my sentiment which I popped up with the Stampin Dimensionals.  To finish off the card I added Wink of Stella to the the rose and leaves.  It is so pretty in person. 

Try and make one yourself and you will be amazed at how beautiful this card really is.  My mom's birthday is next month and she loves roses.  I am going to make her one of these cards for her in her favorite rose color, red.  I think I am going to try and use both the light and dark on it and see how that comes out.  

To make this project you will need the following products:

Cardstock:

Rich Razzleberry

  • cut at 4 1/4" x 11" score at 5 1/2"
  • cut at 1 1/2" x 2 3/4"

Whisper White

  • cut 2 at 4" x 5 1/4"

Vellum 

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

We have throughly enjoyed having Emily home this past week.  Time went too fast as always.  We really didn't do anything special, just hung out and talked.  When she comes home she always makes sure she goes and sees Alex.  Who is Alex, only the best hair stylist around!!!  We all love him.  Both, Emily and Erica, go and see him when they come home.  What is funny is they schedule some of their visits around when they want there hair cut.  

Emily goes home this afternoon and won't be back until June.  She has a crazy summer with lots of weddings, one she is a bridesmaid, and all of us with the grandRandall's going to Disney!  I get to see Erica next month when I go to Michigan for my mom's 85th birthday and the 30 year anniversary of my dad's death.  I still can't believe it was 30 years.  Some days it does seem that long and other days, it is like it was yesterday.  I sure do miss him though.  He was a fabulous man!

Did you notice the embossing on the card base?  I did that with the Layered Leaves embossing folder in the annual catalog.  You can also emboss the flap on the envelope to match the card base.  

Here is the card that I used for my inspiration this week.

I popped up the layers with the ribbon with Stampin Dimensionals.

Heartfelt Blooms

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Heartfelt Blooms #147202, Garden Trellis Embossing Folder #143741, Night of Navy Corduroy Ribbon #145597, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

Did I tell you Stampin' Up! has created a new type of stamp?  The new Distinkive (patent pending) stamps lay down ink at different opacities giving the finished image more depth.  Yes, I took the description for the Sale-A-Bration flyer.  You all know I don't talk like that.  LOL  It was the easiest way to explain how they work.  Another unique feature of this type of stamp is that it is totally flat.  At first look, you will think something is wrong with it.  

There is a little tip to using this stamp, you don't want too much ink on it.  If you do, the image will not come out crisp and clear.  If there isn't enough ink, the image will come out really light. 

The name of the stamp set I used is Heartfelt Blooms in the Sale-A-Bration flyer.  You can get this stamp set for FREE when you spend $50 in products, before shipping and tax.  Sale-A-Bration will be ending on March 31st.  If there is a product that you really want, I highly suggest you get it soon.  You won't want to miss out on this awesome stamp set!

I want to thank Annie Dohrman for this wonderful design.  I received this swap card from Annie at the Leadership Conference in February.  I fell in love with it and knew I wanted to make it too.  

To make this project you will need the following products:

Cardstock:

Night of Navy 

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

Whisper White 

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

One of the 4" x 5 1/4" pieces of white cardstock emboss with the Garden Trellis Embossing Folder.  I wrapped the Night of Navy Corduroy Ribbon the two top layers and tied a knot.  I also popped up the layers with the ribbon on it.  When I wrap ribbon around any cardstock I always use dimensionals to pop up that layer.  Your paper will lay flat and not have a bump in it from the ribbon.

I apologize for this blog post coming out late this morning.  Once again life took more of my time than I thought it would.  Last night Emily came home from Texas for a week and we didn't get home until after 1:00am.  I am not moving very fast this morning, hence the delay in this post.  Do you ever have days where your plans are not at all the plans God had for you that day?  His plans are always better than mine.  Just, sometimes I wish He would let me know them before hand.  

Thank you for stopping in today!  I hope you have a great weekend.

Watercoloring with Brusho Crystal Colours

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Rose Wonder stamp set #140697, Brusho Crystal Colour #144101, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman
I was really excited to see everyone who enjoyed my last project using the Brusho Crystal Colours.  I think it was one of the highest views on my blog and FaceBook.  If you missed the post click HERE to see it.  This is another project that I did using the Brusho Crystal Colours.  This time I used them a little different and it came out with a whole new look.  For some reason when I photographed the pictures, the leaves came out more brown.  In person, they are a green with a little bit of yellow added.  

The first thing I did on this project was to stamp the biggest rose from the Rose Wonder stamp set with Versa Mark ink and emboss it with White Embossing Powder.  I used the watercolor paper for this project.  Once I had the embossing done, I was ready to start the fun part of the card.  Watercoloring!

I sprinkled a little, and I mean a little, bit of crystals onto one of my clear blocks.  I used the letter "E" block so I had room to move it around a bit.  I then added water, using my Aqua Painter brushes, and mixed it up good.  I started with the blue for the flower first and then did the leaves.  I moved my color around on my block so that I had some areas that we lighter than others.  I could pick up the ink from what ever area I wanted.  Dark for the edges, light for the center.  I still did shading with brushes after I got all of it covered.  It is easier to do shading when you have it already a little darker in certain areas.

You don't have to worry about going over the lines in the inside for the flower or leaves as they are already embossed so the paint is not going to stick to it.  I was, however, careful around the outside edges.  You don't want it to bleed outside of your lines.  

For the leaves I started with the green crystals and then added a little bit of the yellow crystals.  I mixed them up good and spread them out on another block.  Same as with the flower, be careful on your outside edges.  

With using the White Embossing Powder it makes it look like the flower is almost floating on the paper.  

I didn't add anything else on the front of the card this time.  I thought it was so pretty just by itself.  You can put a sentiment on the inside, if you want or add one to the front.

To make this card you will need the following products:

Cardstock:

Marina Mist

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

Watercolor Paper

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

Whisper White

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

I haven't had time to play more with the Brusho Crystals but I will.  I really enjoyed creating these two projects for my Technique class.  They were a big hit with the ladies that took the class.

Last weekend I went to a retreat given by Tina Rappe and Peggy Murwin, the Stampin Sisters.  Oh My Goodness!!!  They did a fantastic job!  All the little details they thought of, all the products we were given and the projects!  It was so much fun that I hope I will be able to go next year!  

One of the reasons, there were many, I wanted to go to it was because I want to try and do a retreat soon.  I wanted to see how they ran it, set it up, how they did the projects, door prizes, actually how they did all of it.  You sure can tell this was their 12th year doing it.  They put their heart and soul into the whole weekend.  

The theme this year was picnic.  Here are some pictures of our fun weekend!

On the left is the basket that all of us had at our spot where we were sitting.  The top and bottom right I got because I paid in full when I registered.

The picture on the left was a gift for all the new people that attended this year.  After every break we had, when we went back into the room we had a new gift waiting for us.   The top right is the cookies we got on Sunday morning.  They were so kind and made special ones for the ladies that needed gluten free food.  The bottom right is one of the projects we made.  I have to say it is my favorite.  I really like how it came out.

The picture on the right is my friend from Iowa, Beth, that I went to the retreat with.  It was so nice to see her and spend time with her.  I wish we lived a lot closer.  The picture on the left is our table mates, Margie and Maxine.  I love, love, love these ladies.  We all clicked so well together and worked so good together.  We had a great time.  I am really hoping we all can make it next year and be table mates again.  I am excited that I will get to see all of them in April in Milwaukee!

Would any of you be interested in a retreat if I put one on in Ohio?  

Thank you for stopping in today, I really appreciate it.  I hope you have a wonderful Thursday!
