Smitten Mittens Card

stampin up, Stampin' Up! Smitten Mittens stamp set #144931, Winter Wonder Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #144686, Many mittens Framelits #144672,  created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects, go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

This is one of the cards that we made at my Christmas Card Classes this month.  The first time I saw this stamp set in the catalog it went on my wish list.  You can use this stamp set for Christmas, but you can also use it for winter projects too. I love the combination of the mittens with the Winter Wonder Embossing Folder. This stamp set has matching framelits, Many Mittens, and you can get both of them as a bundle for 10% off.  This stamp set just keeps getting better and better!

To make this card you will need the following products:

Cherry Cobbler Cardstock #119685

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

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut 2 at 4" x 5 1/4"
  • cut 2 at 1" x 3" for the snowflakes and tops of mittens

When I embossed the piece of Whisper White cardstock with the Winter Wonder folder I put the image to the left side of the paper.  I wanted you to be able to see more of the embossed image.  If you put the embossed image in the center of your paper and then put the mittens on top, you wouldn't have seen much of the stamped image.   

I stamped the snowflakes on the mittens and the top part of the mittens with Cherry Cobbler ink.  The snowflakes are adhered with Stampin Dimensionals.  When it was all assembled, I added Wink of Stella to the sections of the embossed snowflake that were visible. DO NOT put the Wink of Stella on the stamped snowflakes.  The ink will bleed and it will make a mess. Below is a picture so you can see better what I did.

To finish the card, I added a double loop bow made with the White Bakers Twine.  For the sentiment inside the card, I used a stamp from the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set.   It said "warm heartfelt greeting for a very Merry Christmas".  I also stamped the Cherry Cobbler snowflake on the inside of the card and the envelope.    

I really appreciate you stopping by today and checking out my blog. I hope you all have a terrific day!

Painted Harvest and Snowflake Sentiments Christmas Card

stampin up, Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest #144783, Snowflake Sentiments ##144820, Garden Trellis Embossing Folder #143741, designed and created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

I love how versatile some of our stamp sets are, especially the Painted Harvest one.  You all know how much I love this stamp set, as I have used it a lot.  I saw a card on Pinterest that used this stamp set as a Christmas wreath and thought it was brilliant.  

To make this card you will need the following products:

Garden Green Cardstock #102584

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

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

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

You will use one of  the Whisper White cardstock pieces to emboss using the Garden Trellis Embossing Folder.  This piece gets adhered to the front of the card base with the other one in the inside of the card.  On the small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the Merry Christmas first and then my wreath.  

For the wreath you are going to stamp the largest stamp with Pear Pizzazz and the second layer is stamped with Garden Green ink.  I then took the little stamp that has the dots on it and used Real Red ink to stamp them on top of the wreath.  To finish off the wreath I tied a small bow with the Real Red 1/8" Solid Ribbon.  The top two layers are popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals. 

This card was the favorite of my ladies at my Christmas card classes last week.  

If you have a hard time lining up your stamps in the Painted Harvest stamp set, I did a video to show you a little trick I have to line them up.

We have been having a lot of fun working on our house this last week and weekend.  We had most of the painting done until I came up with another idea.  I don't think Mr. Wonderful is liking all my wonderful ideas lately.  LOL  We had the stairwells painted last week and I love the color we picked.  In our entry way the paint from the upstairs stairs comes down a little into it.  I like the color of our entryway and the hall, but it just doesn't look as good with the new paint.  Since we have a gallon of paint left, I thought we could paint the hall the same color.  Believe it or not, Mr. Wonderful agreed!  Yay! It isn't a real big area so it shouldn't take us too long to paint it.  

This week we get our new countertops!  I am so excited.  The fixtures in the girls bathroom will get done tomorrow and then I get to start packing up my kitchen cupboards.  I don't want anything to get on my things when they put in the countertops, so I am emptying them. I really want to put up my fall decorations, but am waiting until all of this is done.  I usually have them up on September 1st, but not this year.  I will be putting them up this week however.  

Thank you for stopping by today!  It means a lot to me that you would take time out of your day to stop in.  Have a magnificient Monday!

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!

stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

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

IMG_0055

 

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.  

IMG_0050

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. 

IMG_0056

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.

Only 2 more days until the 2017 Holiday catalog is live!!!

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 ...

Stocking Christmas Card

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Santa's Sleigh stamp set #142057, Christmas Stockings Thinlits #141841, Layering Ovals Framelits #141706, Stitched Shapes Framelits #145372, Cable Knit Embossing Folder #143537, Decorative Ribbon Border Punch #143721, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to StampinScrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

It is hard to believe that we are already working on Christmas projects and it is still August.  Every year I start my Christmas Card Classes in August, so they have 4 months to  work on their cards and have them all done in November.  

When I created this card, I didn't have any of the products from the new catalog yet, so everything is in the annual catalog.  I love the challenge of taking certain stamp sets or accessories and having to create from that.  You have seen all of these products last year except for the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch that is new this year.  

To make this card you will need the following products:

Cherry Cobbler Cardstock #119685

  • cut at 4 1/4" x 11" score at 5 1/5"
  • cut at 2 3/4" x 3 3/4"  for oval
  • cut at 2" x 3 1/2" for the stocking
  • cut at 1/2" x 4"

Very Vanilla Cardstock #101650

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

 Gold Foil Sheets #132622

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

Do you see the top of the stocking where it has the little piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock?   This is how I cut it out so I wasn't wasting any paper.   I don't know about you, but I am all for saving paper whenever I can.  

IMG_9972

For the background I used the Cable Knit 3D Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder.  With any of the 3D Dynamic Textured Embossing Folders you need to spritz your paper with water first to get the whole effect of the folder.   With the Decorative Ribbon Border you can use either side and on this card I used the scalloped side.  

I popped up the ovals with Stampin Dimensionals to give the card some dimension.

Update on Emily:  She had a pretty good weekend, until Sunday afternoon.  Where she is in Houston the flooding really didn't start until then.  Thankfully she is on the second floor with her best friends, so that helps.  Where her school is located, that area is totally under water.  She has no idea what her classroom will look like once they get back in there.  The school is closed for right now until next Tuesday.  I am pretty sure it will be longer than that.  The pictures I have been seeing on TV are unbelievable and incredibly sad.  I can't even imagine what all of those people are feeling and trying to comprehend.  My heart is breaking for all of them.

Thank you for stopping by and have a magnificent Monday!

Carols of Christmas Available Today!!!!

Stampin up, Stampin' Up! Carols of Christmas #146037, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

Carols of Christmas stamp set and matching framelits are available for purchase today!  Stampin' Up! has released one of the new stamp sets from the Holiday 2017 catalog (which will be live on September 1st) today.  As a demonstrator we were able to preorder it and play with it.  I love this set, I think I say that about all the stamp sets I buy. Heck, I think I say that about all the  products from Stampin' Up! They are so awesome, how could you not love them! 

When I look at stamp sets I always think of at least 3 ways I can make cards, scrapbooking or 3D project with it.  When I say this bundle, there were tons of different ideas floating around in my head.  What I like about this set is you can use it for so much more than just Christmas.  In the framelits, do you see the trees, they are perfect for a masculine card.  We all know how hard they are to come up with sometimes.  The stars and moon you can use one any card you are making.  The framelit on the right hand side is perfect for adding a design on any card for any occasion.  It really adds something special to a card.  Same thing with the two framelits in the middle that are for the corner of your card.  So pretty!  Look how many different cards you can get out of just using the framelits, then you add the stamp set and you have even more!  Now, that is a win, win!

Here is a video from Stampin' Up! showcasing the Carols of Christmas suite.

 

                                                                                                  

 You can see the card I made with this stamp set by clickingHERE.

Don't forget if you earned your Bonus Days Coupons in July to use them this month, you have until August 31st.  I used mine this morning on my preorder, it was so nice to have the them.

Carols of Christmas Sneak Peek

stampin up, Stampin' Up! Carols of Christmas stamp set #144804, Card Front Builder Framelits, Stitched Shapes Frameltis #145372, Ruffled Embossing Folder #143699, Silver and Dazzling Diamond Glitter Paper, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

One of the benefits to being a demonstrator is getting to see and preorder products before they become available to the public.  The Carols of Christmas stamp set and matching framelits called, Card Front Builder, is one such stamp set.  The Holiday Catalog will become available to the public on September 1st, but as a demo I will get to see it on August 1st.  This stamp set, however, Stampin' Up! is releasing to all of you on August 1st!!!  Yay!!!  This is another one of those stamps that I when I saw it I knew I had to order it.  I had to wait a little bit before I could order it.  I didn't want a package to be sitting on our step while we were in Texas.  So, I was patient and waiting until we got home.  Can I tell you, that was hard to do.  I was seeing all these wonderful samples online I wanted to make and couldn't.  

Deborah Newman, a fellow demonstrator, made this card and was so gracious to let me CASE (create and share everything) it.  Didn't she do an awesome job.  It is more stunning in person than I could get on this picture.  My customers coming to my Christmas Card Class in August will get the fun of making this as one of our cards.  

To make this card, you will need the following products:

Smoky Slate Cardstock #131202

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

Night of Navy Cardstock #100867

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut at 2 1/2" x 4" this is for the snow
  • cut at 3" x 3"
  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4" this for the inside of the card

Daffodil Delight Cardstock #119683

  • scrap piece

Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper #135315

  • cut at 1" x 3 7/8"

Silver Glimmer Paper #135314

  • cut at 2 1/4" x 3 1/2"

You are going to use the framelit with the moon and stars on the top of  your Night of Navy cardstock.  I then adhered the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper to the back of it to make the stars shine and sparkle.  I then used a small piece of Daffodil Delight scrap paper and cut out the moon and adhered it with the Multi Purpose Glue.  

When you use the Whisper White paper with the Ruffled Embossing Folder, you do not have to spritz it with water.  With the paper being thinner that normal cardstock, you do not have to spritz it with water to get the 3D effect.  If you use the Thick Whisper White cardstock, you would have to spritz it with water first.  When I put the paper into the embossing folder, I made sure that the bottom of the paper was right below one of the wave lines.  I went up to the second line above the bottom wave line on my paper and trimmed the paper right above line.  This gave it the look of a snow bank.  I then added Wink of Stella on the curvy lines so it looks like the snow is sparkling in the moonlight.  

The trees are popped with dimensionals.  This is a perfect place to use the new mini dimensionals for the top of the trees.   They fit perfect.  

On the inside of the card and on the envelope I used the Merry Christmas sentiment from the Hang Your Stocking stamp set.  

Isn't this card beautiful?  Wait until you see the whole stamp set and framelits.  I am sure you are going to want them too.

This is a picture of the snow so you can see how I added the Wink of Stella to the waves to make them look like snow banks.

On this card all of it is embossed, which is beautiful, but you will need to do it in steps.  I stamped and embossed the JOY and the sentiment first.   Then I stamped and embossed the star and the nativity scene.  This makes it easier to line up the nativity inside the "O" of JOY.  I used the Embossing Buddy first before any embossing to make sure I didn't have any static on my Whisper White Paper.  If you do have static, little pieces of embossing powder will cling where you don't want them to.

I hope everyone has a blessed Christmas weekend!  We are going to enjoy spending time together, going to Christmas Eve service, make more cookies, play games, watch movies, eat and sleep.  It can't get any better than this! 

Happy Stampin!

Joyce
