My Thanksgiving Card

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Count My Blessings stamp set #144790, Painted Harvest stamp set #144783, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman
 

I just love the Count My Blessing stamp set!  I am excited to say that it is one of the products that is being carried over to the new Occasions catalog.  It is now being offered as a bundle in the Holiday catalog, but will not be a bundle in the new catalog.  So, if you want to save 10% now is the time to do so. 

This year I did the triple stamping technique on my Thanksgiving cards for my family.  This is a fun and easy technique that is so striking once you put it all together.  

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

Cajun Craze Cardstock #119684

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

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut at 3 1/4" x 4 1/2"
  • cut at 3 5/8" x 4 7/8"
  • cut 2 at 4" x 5 1/4"

To do this technique you will want to put your three white pieces together (you will need one of each size above) but only with a little bit of adhesive.  What I do is put maybe a 1/4" piece of snail adhesive on the back of each piece and then tap the adhesive with your finger to get most of the stickiness off.  You want them to just be held together while you stamp and then you will take them apart.  

Once you have your three pieces together you can begin your stamping.  I stamped my sentiment, from the Count My Blessings stamp set, first that way I could see better where I wanted to put my flower.  A little tip for you for the green ferns is that I rocked the stamp from side to side while keeping it firmly in place.  This will help get the image on all three layers of paper.  I know, I just told you to rock your stamp!  LOL  The reason you don't want to rock your stamp, that you can get shadows around your stamped image.

As you may have already figured out, this post is coming out a little bit later than normal.  I have to admit that I have been spending time with our daughter, Emily, who is home from Texas.  We haven't seen her since July, so I am enjoying as much time with her as possible.  

Are you baking today for Thanksgiving?  We will be making our pies today!  I love to bake and we are going to try a new recipe this year.  A pecan pie cheesecake.  Doesn't that just sound delicious?  I can't wait! 

We go Black Friday shopping every year and have a lot of fun.  This year will be very different as Erica won't be able to come home for Thanksgiving because she has to work.  We are missing her so much.  Tomorrow morning Mr. Wonderful will go get a newspaper so we can look at everything that is on sale and make a game plan from there.  I know you can get everything online, but it just isn't the same.  We always have all the ads spread out on the family room floor while we watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade and make our list.  

One thing we do ahead of time is go out the weekend before and look for things, try on clothes, so we can go and just get what we want and not have to worry about that.  

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

Thoughts and Prayers and Jar of Love Fall Card

stampin up, Stampin' Up! Thoughts and Prayers stamp set #127805, Jar of Love stamp set #141587, Layered Leaves Embossing Folder #143704, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3 D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

One of my customers and dear friend, Stacy, had a workshop with me and wanted to use the Jar of Love stamp set for her cards we made.  As soon as she picked the date I had an idea on how to use this stamp set with a fall theme.  When I started making this card it didn't have any texture and I really didn't care for it.  I kept thinking, how was I going to make this better?  Then I thought about embossing it with one of our folders, but I already had the strips on the left taped down onto the card base.  Why not do it with the strips already there.  Either it was going to turn out good or really bad.  Thank goodness, it was good!   Yay!  I love how it turned out and so did Stacy.  I have used this technique quite a bit since.  

To make this card you will need the following products:

Cajun Craze Cardstock #119684

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

Crushed Curry Cardstock #131199

  • cut at 1/2" x 5 1/2"

Pumpkin Pie Cardstock #105117

  • cut at 1/2" x 5 1/2"

Wild Wasabi Cardstock #108641

  • cut at 2 1/2" x 4 1/2"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

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

I am not sure if you noticed that I used a piece of the Cajun Craze cardstock the same size as the front of the card.  If you would like, you can emboss the front panel of the card instead of adding an extra piece of paper.  

When you are stamping the stems, the one on the left is stamped using the whole stamp.  However, on the right I didn't ink up about 1/2" of the stem on the bottom of the stamp.  This will give you two different heights of the flowers and still keep them within the jar.  The water in the jar was made using Soft Sky ink and  stamping it off first on a scrap piece of paper before stamping on your card front.  You want to make sure that it is light, but that you can still see it.  

I stamped one stem of the flowers in the inside of the card on the bottom left hand corner and on the envelope.  I used Stampin Dimensionals to pop up the stamped image and the Wild Wasabi cardstock. To complete the card I added a triple loop bow using the Linen Thread.

Merry Christmas Monday Week #2

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Seasonal Chums stamp set #144948, Seasonal Tags Framelits #144685, Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder #143708, Scalloped Tag Topper #133324, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

I was on Pinterest last week looking for some inspiration for some gift card holders and I came across a card with a tag and holder on the front of it.  I thought it was interesting, because I hadn't seen anything like it before.  I can't remember who designed the card I saw, but thank you for sharing it with everyone.   The first thing I had to do was come up with a template on how to make this and the measurements.  Once I figured that out, I had to come up with a design. 

The first one I made, which I forgot to take a picture of, I made for Erica for her birthday.  I had so much fun making it, I thought it would be great to make another one for my Merry Christmas Monday series.  The above picture is the first one I came up with.  Isn't the little reindeer so cute?!  Oh, my goodness, I love him!  He is from the stamp set Seasonal Chums stamp set and has matching framelits, Seasonal Tags. There is also a snowman and a pumpkin in the set too.  

I colored him with the new Stampin' Blends markers, can you see the shading on him?  I used the dark and light Crumb Cake and Cherry Cobbler along with the dark Basic Gray, dark Daffodil Delight and the Bronze markers.  A reminder that when you use the Stampin' Blends markers you have to stamp your images with the Memento Ink.  

To make this project you will need the following products:

Crumb Cake Cardstock #120953

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

Cherry Cobbler Cardstock #119685

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

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

Below are pictures on how to make the tag and holder.

StampinScrapperJoyceWhitman2

You are going to score on the 8 1/4" side at 3 1/2" and then turn your paper to the 3 3/4" side and you will score at 1/2" on each side.  If you look at the second picture you will see how I cut and scored the paper at the same time.  You are going to cut down until you get the to score line (the 3 1/2" line)  and then you are going to score to the end of the paper.  You can see in the picture below what I am talking about.  

 
StampinScrapperJoyceWhitman

 

After you have done your scoring and cutting, don't forget to angle the 1/2" pieces so they fold nicely.  Refer back to the first picture where you need to cut the flaps at an angle.  

 

StampinScrapperJoyceWhitman6

The next step is to mark the section that you just cut the flaps off of at 1 3/8" (this is the center of this end of your paper).  If you look at the picture you can see where I placed the mark.  

 

StampinScrapperJoyceWhitman3

The paper is going to be wider than the slot on the punch, but you can still use it.  You will need to slide the paper in the punch as it is shown in the picture above. Once you have it in the punch make sure your mark at 1 3/8" is in the center of the punch.  See the photo above to see the mark I made.

StampinScrapperJoyceWhitman4

Next, trim off the little tabs that are still on there.

StampinScrapperJoyceWhitman5

Add a strong adhesive, as shown above, I used the Tear and Tape, and burnish (use a bone folder to make a sharp crease on the score lines) and put it together.  Figure out where you want to put it on your card before adhering it.  With this strong of adhesive it is hard to take it off and move it.  

For the background on my card, I used the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder on the Cherry Cobbler piece of paper.  Now, is the fun part, decorate the tag holder as you wish. 

Making the tag is super easy.  Take a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock and cut it at 2 1/2" x 4 1/2".   I used the Scalloped Tag Topper again, so it will match and you will have to slide it in the same way as the Crumb Cake piece.

With this set, the stamps have a front and back and they are attached.  It is designed that way so you can fold it in half and have a cute little tag all at once.  How awesome is that!  I cut mine apart, so I used the back piece to decorate the inside of the card.  For your envelope you could just stamp the front of the reindeer and color it if you wanted to or you could just leave it uncolored.  Either way, it will be beautiful.

Isn't the back side of this deer just as cute as the front.  He is so stinkin' cute!

Our carpet is finished!!! I love, love, love it!  One of my daycare kids told me it is so squishy.  Compared to our old carpet, that is 18 years old, it is definitely squishy.  LOL  I don't think I have worked that hard physically in a very long time.  It took them four days to finish all of it, but it was so worth it.  I really don't want to move any more furniture for a while.  You don't realize how much stuff you have until you have to move all of it.  Needless to say, there were a lot of trips to drop of things to Goodwill.  

Mr. Wonderful went to Michigan over the weekend to spend some time with Erica.  I know that made her very happy to see her daddy.  I love how she still calls us mommy and daddy.  I really wish I could have gone with him.  I haven't seen her since the beginning of September.  This is the longest we have gone without seeing each other.  We are hoping and praying she will be able to come for a few days at Christmas.  

Emily comes home late on Friday night (well, really Saturday very early in the morning).  We haven't seen her since July and I can't wait.  It is really hard being this far away from our girls.  We are blessed that she will be able to be home for a week and two weeks at Christmas. 

Oh my goodness!  Do not try to type up your blog post when you are very tired.  I have a very busy week this week, so I have been working a lot in my stamping studio this weekend getting prepared for it.  I was working on this blog post late last night and was literally falling asleep while I was typing.  So, I went to bed and finished it this morning.  It is a good thing I went back and reread it.  One section I wrote the same thing three times, three different ways.  Another section I typed what I heard on TV.  It would have been a very interesting and funny blog post if I had posted it.  Note to self, don't work on blog post when you are tired.  LOL  

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you have a blessed week.

More Merry Messages/Snowflake Sentiments

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! More Merry Messages stamp set, Snowflake Sentiments #144820, Winter wWonder Embossing Folder #144686, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects, go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

I have met a wonderful demonstrator from Michigan, Ronda Wade, and she has graciously shared this card with us.  I love the simplicity and elegance of it.  I used the sentiment from a retired stamp set, More Merry Messages, but you could use the Merry Christmas from the Star of Light stamp set.  

To make this card you will need the following products:

Very Vanilla Cardstock #101650

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

Gold Glimmer Paper #133719

  • cut at 2 1/4" x 2 1/4"

To make this card you will start with embossing your 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Very Vanilla with the sentiment with the Gold Embossing Powder.  This will make it easier to figure out the placement of the Winter Wonderland Embossing Folder.   You will then emboss the following with the Gold Embossing Powder:

  • snowflake for the front (use the 2" x 2" square)
  • snowflake on the bottom left hand corner on the inside of the card
  • on the bottom left hand corner of your envelope

Punch out the Gold Glimmer Paper with the 2" circle punch and the snowflake with the 1 3/4" circle punch.  I used Tear and Tape to adhere my snowflake to the Gold Glimmer Paper and then used Stampin Dimensionals to adhere it to the card.  To finish it off I added an little pearl in the middle of the snowflake.

If you want to make it even faster to make, stamp the snowflakes and sentiment with ink instead of embossing with the Gold Embossing Folder.  You could do a lot of different color combinations for this card and come up with a lot of different looks. 

Don't forget to stop by on Monday for my Merry Christmas Monday series!

Thank you for stopping by today!  Have a great weekend.

Do you ever make a card and wonder if anyone else will like it.  This is the card that I wasn't sure how my ladies in my class would take it.  Either they would like it or they would hate it.  Thank goodness they all loved it and thought it was funny.  Yay!!!    Wait until you see the inside of the card.  

To make this card you will need the following products:

Cherry Cobbler Cardstock #126966

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

Old Olive Cardstock #126953

  • cut at 2 5/8" x 4 1/8"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

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

I used the Brick Wall Embossing Folder on one of the Whisper White cardstock pieces for texture on this card.   I put dimensionals under the Cherry Cobbler to pop up the stamped images.  

To color the wine bottle and glass I used the Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and So Saffron markers.  For my envelope I stamped the wine bottle and colored it too.  You wouldn't have to color the one on your envelope if you didn't want to.

Here is the picture of the inside of the card

I apologize for the lateness of this blog post.  We are getting our new carpet put in this week, so every night we are having to move furniture around and put beds together and all that good stuff.  On top of that last night I had my last Christmas Card class on Tuesday for the year. 

I had two new ladies join us and they are wonderful.  We had so much fun!  I really miss these classes when they end for the season.  I have to say this is one of my favorite classes that I teach.

For the Splitcoaststampers Creative Crew each month we create 5 projects each with a different challenge.  For this challenge we had three pictures we could get inspiration from for our project.  Below is the picture I chose.  

55418317e8c41cbd785a264da5d4f9fe

I was drawn to the warmth and cozy feeling of these pictures.  My eye immediately went to the bottom left hand picture with the door and Christmas tree.  Then I was looking at the other pictures and I saw baked goods, which I love to bake, especially at the holidays and the coffee cup on the bottom right hand corner.  If anyone knows me they know I love, love, love coffee.  Three of my favorite things for the holidays, of course, I had to use this picture.  

My first thought was the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack would be perfect to represent the wood in the picture.  It had a door, so I had to make a door too.  Also, I could picture Santa sitting in the chair having a cup of coffee going over the naughty and nice list.  I really hope I am on the nice list this year!  Last year, not so much.  LOL  Just kidding.

All of the accessories, the garland, little trees, lamps and the present are all from the At Home With You stamp set and matching At Home framelits.  These two are available as a bundle with a savings of 10%!  Another great thing I love about Stampin' Up! 

I used the Stampin' Write Markers to color the images and Santa.  It is hard to see in the picture, but I put Wink of Stella on several places on this card.  The fur of Santa's coat, the area around his feet, the garland, the wreath, the flame in the lamps and the little trees.  I didn't put it on the lamps or present because the Wink of Stella will smear the red ink.  

 

StampinUpAtHomeWithYouFatherChristmas2017HolidayCatalogStampinScrapperJoyceWhitman3

 

I have to say this is my favorite Christmas card so far this year that I have created.  I really like how it turned out. 

To create this project you will need the following products:

Real Red Cardstock #102482

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

Very Vanilla Cardstock #100650

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4" for the inside of the card
  • cut at 3" x 4 3/4" for Santa
  • scraps for the decorations

For the inside of the card and the envelope I stamped one of the little trees and colored them.  I popped up the two lamps and everything else is adhered with Snail Adhesive

 

CoffeeandChatStampinScrapperJoyceWhitman2

Last night I got an early Christmas present from Mr. Wonderful.   I was so excited!  Can you guess what it is?   A  Silhouette Cameo Cutting Machine!  

IMG_0414
I can't wait to start playing with it and making a  lot of projects for the holidays!  I know I have a lot to learn how to use this, but I am so excited!  Emily will be home at Thanksgiving and is going to help me figure it all out.  I can see long nights ahead of us working on projects.  I have an old Cricut that has all the cartridges, which I have quite a few, so I am a little familiar with how they work.  Just a little!

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you have a fantastic day and weekend!

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!

A Simple Christmas Card

stampin up, Stampin' Up! Sheet Music background stamp #143970, Lovely As A Tree stamp set #127793, Peace This Christmas stamp set #141570, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com

Do you want a simple Christmas card to make for your family and friends?  I think this card would be perfect for you.  

I first started with the Sheet Music background stamp using Crumb Cake ink.  To soften up the edges I used a sponge and the Crumb Cake ink.  The tree is from the Lovely As A Tree stamp set which I stamped on the left hand side and on the envelope using the Always Artichoke ink.  Using the same ink I stamped the sentiments from the Peace This Christmas stamp set on the front and inside of the card.  

To finish off the card I used Linen Thread at 11" and 16" to wrap around the card and make a double bow.  

To make this project you will need the following products:

Crumb Cake Cardstock #120953

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

Always Artichoke Cardstock #105119

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

Very Vanilla Cardstock #101650

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

On Friday I will have my final project to share with you to finish up my Fall Friday series.

  • 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!

This is my final project for the October SCS Creative Crew.  For this project we had to use the following colors in our projects.

 

 

I have to say, this was another one that stumped me for a while.  I liked the color combination, I just couldn't figure out how to use it in a comfy, cozy (that was our theme of the month) project.  When I work on some projects, I try many different punches or things cut out with framelits/thinlits.  When I don't use them, I just throw them in a basket to use at a different time.  I accidentally knocked over the basket and the two yellow pieces fell out onto the floor.  That started my creating process and I ended up with the above card.  

To make this card you will need the following products:

Chocolate Chip Cardstock #102128

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

Tangerine Tango Cardstock #111349

  • cut at 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"

Daffodil Delight Cardstock #119683

  • cut at 3 1/4" x 6 1/2"

Tranquil Tide Cardstock #144246

  • cut at 2 1/4" x 5" you can cut all three pieces out of this piece

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut 2 at 4" x 5 1/4"

I used the Eastern Medallion Framelits to make the sunflower.  When you cut them, you will need 2 of them, you are going to notice that they aren't cut all the way through.  In the picture below you will see how you have to cut them.

Once you get them cut you will take your Tangerine Tango and sponge the edges of the flowers.  I then took my bone folder and curled the edges of the flowers.  Adhere the two pieces together alternating the flowers.  Next, I ran the Chocolate Chip circle through the Big Shot using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder.  You will want to put your circle near the bottom of the embossing folder so you can get a lot of dots on the circle.  I also used the Brick Wall Embossing Folder on one of the white pieces for the background.  

I then punched out two leaves from the Tranquil Tide cardstock using the Leaf Punch in the holiday catalog.  The sentiment is from the Wood Words stamp set.  On the inside of the card I used a sentiment from the Heartland stamp set which says "Just a note to let you know I'm thinking of you".

I used snail adhesive on most of the card, except the flower that is popped using the Stampin Dimensionals.   To finish off the card, I put Wink of Stella on the circle part of the flower.  You can see it a little in the picture below.
