Snowflake Sentiment Christmas Card

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Snowflake Sentiments stamp set #144820, Joyous Noel designer series paper #147816, Merry Merlot & Copper Ribbon #147818, Layering Oval Framelits #141706, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

Every time there is a new catalog I participate in numerous swaps.  When I talk about swaps, what I mean is, a group of us get together (let's say there is 20 of us), and we each make 20 of the same card.  Once we are finished we exchange (swap) with each other.  So, we make 20 of the same card, but go home with 20 different cards.  It is so fun and I love to see all the different cards people have created.  

I CASE'd (create and share everything) this card from one of the swaps I participated in.  The creator of this card is Sandy Carlson.  I changed the paper I used, we both used the same designer series paper, just different pieces from the pack, and the colors of the card base and the layer on top of that.  I just fell in love with Sandy's card the minute I saw it.  I knew I wanted to make it for one of my make and takes at my catalog launch party.  

To make this card you will need the following paper.  For a complete list of all the products I used, please see the end of this post.

The sentiment is from the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set which is the annual catalog and the designer series paper, Joyous Noel,  is from the Holiday catalog.  I used Shaded Spruce ink which coordinates perfectly along with the Copper Foil paper and the Merry Merlot & Copper Reversible Ribbon.  I think that is the of the main reasons I love Stampin' Up!  Everything coordinates!  The designer series paper goes with the stamp set, all the colors are the same.  Whether it is cardstock, ribbon, embellishments, markers, watercolor pencils and Blends.  I never have to worry about if I have the right colors for any of my project.  I know I do!

Winter Woods (CT#164)

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Winter Woods stamp set #147661, Watercolor Pencils #141709,  Frost White Shimmer Paint #147046, CASEing Tuesday, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman




Do you ever have those days where everything you try, nothing works.  Well, last night and this morning, it is just that.  I have had to take 50 pictures of the card above and none of them are turning out.  I am doing my lighting the same as always, using my iphone like I always do and it keeps coming out grainy or blue or a pink tint.  I have tried every light I can think of, no lights, it doesn't matter.  So the above picture is not the greatest picture and for that I apologize.  I am going to try again later today and see if it helps and if it does, I will put the new picture in.  Now, on with the post I had ready for you.


When I first saw the Winter Woods stamp set in the holiday catalog it went immediately on my wish list.  I couldn't wait to get it and start using it.  When I saw the inspiration card for CASEing Tuesday this week I knew I wanted to use this stamp set.  In the inspiration card they used Watercolor pencils, which I haven't used in a while, so I was excited to use them.  I used the Pacific Point and Basic Gray pencils on this card. 

Here is our inspiration card for this week:

40096962_10214130891120667_619954640569499648_n

On my card I first lightly put the basic gray on the bottom of the Whisper White cardstock and then went even lighter on the top.  I wanted to just do a very light base for the blue watercoloring.  When I colored with the Pacific Point pencil I barely pushed down on it.  I didn't want it dark, or medium for that matter, I wanted it to be light like the sky.

I stamped the trees with Stazon ink and then added the Shimmer paint. Using a sponge, on put the paint on the the area below the trees and then on the edges by the trees and the top edge.  To put the paint on the trees, I used a dauber and tapped it randomly.  I didn't want to cover all of the trees, I wanted it to look like snow was on them.  

After the paint dried, I stamped the sentiment using Stazon ink.  I popped up the Balmy Blue layer and the white layer.  

To make this card you will need the following paper.  For a complete list of all the products I used, please see the end of this post.

Cardstock:

Black

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

Balmy Blue

  • cut at 3" x 5 1/4"

Whisper White

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

 

I had my holiday catalog kick off class on Saturday.  I took pictures before, but didn't take any during the class.  I really need to get better at taking pictures.  I didn't even take pictures of my pumpkin cookies I made.  I have to admit, they turned out great.  Below are some pictures before everyone came.

I have been having so much fun playing with products from the new holiday catalog!  This is one of the cards that I created for my Christmas Card classes this month.  They are getting a sneak peek right now because classes aren't until tonight and tomorrow night.

Spirited Snowmen (CT #163)

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Spirited Snowmen stamp set #148072, Buffalo Check background stamp #147794, Blizzard Thinlits Die #147902, Frost White Shimmer Paint #147044, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

Did you see my post yesterday for the What's New at SU? blog hop?  If not check it out at Spirited Snowmen.   There were so many beautiful projects!  I can't wait to make some of them! I did the same technique on this card as I did on the card I posted for the blog hop yesterday.  This technique is called Ink Block technique and is very easy to do.  There is a little trick to getting the colors to blend, but I will explain that further down on my post.  

I made this card for my CASEing Tuesday challenge this week.  Here is the card that is our inspiration:

40049823_10215871617600308_6467511640085495808_n (1)

This post is going to be a little long as I got a lot of emails and comments about how I made it.  I am happy to share the directions with you, so here they are: 

  • stamp the 4" x 5 1/4" Whisper White with the Buffalo Check background stamp using Balmy Blue ink

On a different piece of 4" x 5 1/4" Whisper White paper you are going to stamp your background for the snowman.  To do this you will:

  • take the Balmy Blue ink pad and ink up one half of an "E" clear block.  The easiest way to do this is to hold the block in your left hand and then have the ink pad in your right hand and tap it on the block.  You want to make sure you are putting a lot of ink on it.
  • do the same thing on the other end of the block with Smoky Slate ink
  • using the Spritzer (with water in it) you will spray the block (with the ink on it) about 4-5 times 

This is the little tip I have for you.  Make sure you are putting on enough water, but not too much to make it drip.  It took me numerous attempts to finally figure out what I wasn't getting the look I wanted.  If you stamp it and have white spots, that means you don't have enough water on it.  I also learned that if you put too much water on it, it will drip and leave drip marks on your image.  

  • once you spritzed it with the water, you will flip over your block and push it hard on your paper. 

You will see it blend together through your block.  It is so neat to watch it do that!  You now need to let it dry completely.  You can use a heating tool if you want or wait about 10-15 minutes.  This is when I am working on other aspects of the card, such as cutting out the snowflake and getting my stamp and ink ready to stamp.

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Spirited Snowmen stamp set #148072, Buffalo Check background stamp #147794, Blizzard Thinlits Die #147902, Frost White Shimmer Paint #147044, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

The next step is adding the White Frost shimmer paint.

  • I used an old block I had, one I didn't care if it got messed up, and poured about 2-3 drops of shimmer paint on it.  I then used a sponge and tapped the paint all over the stamped image.  I then blended it all together to give it a real shiny look and then let it dry again. I did use shimmer paint on my snowflake too. 
  • after it is dry then you can stamp your image and sentiment.  I used Stazon ink as I wanted a real crisp look and I knew it would stay on.
  • add your other layers to the card base (I used Stampin Dimensionals under the black layer),  stamped image and then your embellishments last.

This isn't a hard technique, actually it is very easy.  The hardest thing is learning how much water to put on it.  I would suggest to practice a few times on copy paper first, before you use your good Whisper White cardstock.

I tried to get a picture so you could see how shiny it is, but I just couldn't get it to come out.  You can see it a little on the bottom by the snowflake.  It is really pretty in the person.  

I hope these directions will help you when you try to do this technique.  I love it so much, I want to keep doing it.  LOL

I did a couple of fun and easy techniques on this card.  The first one I did is called the Ink Block technique and then I covered it with the Frost White shimmer paint, which is also in the new Holiday catalog.  Since this is a blog hop and I don't want to make this post too long, I will write out the directions soon and post them on here for how I made this card.

It is hard to see the shimmer on the card in the above photo, but here is a better picture.

This weeks product of the week is all the wonderful punches that Stampin' Up! has.  Of all the products that are available through Stampin' Up! I have to say my favorite product is all of the punches.  If there is a punch in a catalog, I get it.  I don't sell or give away my old ones, because you never know when you will need one.  I use them a lot when I do punch art projects, like the animal gift bags I made for Erica.  If you missed that post, you can see it at Punch Art Fair Bags.

The gingerbread boy and girl are so stinkin cute on the cookie sheet!  I used three of our punches, the Cookie Cutter Builder, Detailed Trio and the Banner Triple.  To make the cookie sheet I used the Silver Foil paper and scored each side.  I used the new Detailed Trio punch to round the corners, to make it look like a real cookie sheet. The Triple Banner punch was used on the sentiment that I stamped in Real Red ink and is from the Half Full stamp set.  

To make this card you will need the following products:

 Cardstock:

On my Facebook Stampin Scrapper business page and my Stampin Scrapper VIP page I have started something new this week.  On Monday's I will have a product of the week and then through out the week I will post different things about the product.  This week my product of the week is embossing folders. 

On this card I used the new Tufted embossing folder from the annual catalog.  This embossing folder was on the top of my wish list for this catalog.  I fell in love with it right away.  Then when I got it and started using it, oh my goodness, I was even more in love with it.  I used the Stampin' Up! Snowflake Sentiments stamp set, which is also one of my favorites.  Yes, I do have a lot of favorites.  How could I not have so many?  Stampin' Up! has the best products!

  • cut at 2 1/2" x 3 1/2"

I wrapped the 1/4" Double-stitched Ribbon in Cherry Cobbler around the Very Vanilla piece of cardstock.   I added the sentiment that was stamped using Cherry Cobbler ink and cut out with the Layering Oval Framelits.  I adhered the sentiment with Stampin Dimensionals.  For a little bit of texture I added pearls to the embossed piece of cardstock.   On one card I only put a few pearls and on the other card I went a little crazy with them.  LOL

Snowflake Sentiment Christmas Card

Every year in August I start my monthly Christmas card classes and end in the month of November.  At this month's class, I used products that are in our annual catalog (our holiday catalog will go live on September 5th).  On this card we used the Snowflake Sentiment stamp set along with the Garden Trellis embossing folder.   

To add color to this card, I used Under The Mistletoe designer series paper, Night of Navy cardstock  along with Real Red ink and ribbon.  This is the first time I have used the 3/8" Cotton Ribbon and I am in love with it! 

For the sentiment, I punched it out using the Everyday Label Punch.  To make mat behind the sentiment, I punched out two of the Everyday Labels from Night of Navy cardstock.  See picture below for directions.

When you are finishing cutting the pieces, adhere #1 and #2 pieces to your sentiment.  Make sure that you have the same amount of border showing all around your sentiment.  I then used Stampin Dimensionals to pop up the sentiment.  To finish the card I added Rhinestones on each end of the sentiment.

Christmas in May? You bet! (CT#147)

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Hang Your Stocking stamp set #142114, Holly Embossing Folder #141634, Seasonal Layers Thinlits #143751, Be Merry Designer Series Paper, CASEing Tuesday, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and more go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

You are probably asking yourself why in the world did I make a Christmas card in May.  Well, I was working on making my card for CASEing Tuesday and started looking through my retired stamp sets.  I saw the Christmas sets and Christmas designer series paper and thought, why not?!

Here is our inspirational card for this week:

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! CASEing Tuesday, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

I used a few retiring products on this card.  The retiring products are: Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler oval paper and is from Be Merry designer series paper, banner and snowflakes are made with the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.  I used the Holly Embossing Folder on the Garden Green paper to give it some texture.

In the first picture, for some reason, the glimmer paper is showing up as white paper.  It didn't matter how I moved my lights around or what angle I took the picture.  I couldn't get the glimmer paper to show up.  You can, however, see it in the above picture.  I used the Seasonal Layers Thinlits to cut out the snowflakes.  I had to use the precision plate along with going back and forth at least 4 times to go through the glimmer paper.  Stampin' Up! has new glimmer paper in the new annual catalog that will cut with our framelits/thinlits.  Yay!

To make this project you will need the following products:

Cardstock:

Cherry Cobbler

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

Whisper White 

  • cut at 4 x 5 1/4"

Be Merry Designer Series Paper

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

Vellum

  • cut at 2 1/4" x 3 1/4"

Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper

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

I stamped the sentiment on the Vellum paper with Garden Green ink.  You are going to have to let it dry for a little bit or use your heating tool to dry it.  I then took the Multi Purpose Liquid Glue and put a small amount on a clear block and used a sponge to tap it on the back of the Vellum.  This way you will not see the glue through the Vellum.  I popped up the sentiment and banner with Stampin Dimensionals.

Mark and I were busy over the weekend working on our deck.  I really like how it turned out.  My favorite thing to do is to sit on my deck, with my coffee and read my bible.  It is so calming and relaxing.  Here are some pictures of our deck.

I hope everyone had a great Mother's Day.  I was able to talk to both of my girls and my mom, so it was wonderful day for me.

I love this picture of my mom and me.  It was taken when I was in Michigan last month for her 85th birthday and to see Erica.  Mark is going to see Erica this weekend, so I get to craft all weekend long!  I can't wait!  I will miss Mark dearly, but I am also excited to be able to play in my studio as long as I want.

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

Merry Christmas Monday Week #7

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! The Little Things stamp set #144954, Merry Christmas Monday, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects, please go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

I hope you have enjoyed my Merry Christmas Monday series.  Today, I have a real cute box that looks like Santa's pants.  You can put little treats inside of it or a small gift.  I made these for our small group from church yesterday, for our Christmas party and they were a big hit!  I saw a box like this created by Twila and tweaked it a little for what I wanted.  

To make this project you will need the following products:  

Real Red Cardstock #102482

  • cut at 4" x 4 1/2" score all sides at 3/4"  this is the box base
  • cut at 2 1/4" x 11 3/4"
  • cut at 2 3/4" x 2 3/4"

Crushed Curry Cardstock #131199

  • cut at 1 1/4" x 1 1/2"

Basic Black Cardstock #121045

  • cut at 3/4" x 11 3/4"
  • cut at 3/4" x 1"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

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

 To make the base of the box you will score at 3/4" on all sides.  On the two shorter sides you will cut up to the score lines.  See the picture below.

Put adhesive on the back of these flaps and fold in.  This is going to create the little box for the base.  

On the long piece of red cardstock put Tear and Tape on the bottom edge and up one side.  Peel off the paper on the tape and adhere to the box, making sure you start with the side that doesn't have adhesive going up the side and the adhesive is on the bottom. Line up the edge of the paper with the bottom of the box and the adhesive towards the bottom.  This will create the side to your box.  When you have it all adhered, take your bone folder and rub it on the inside of the box where the adhesive is from the paper you just attached.   This will make it adhere and stick better.

Add the little white strip to the center of the front of your box.  The put Tear and Tape on the bottom edge of the long strip of black paper.  Adhere it just like you did the red strip making sure the adhesive is at the bottom.  You are going to want to make sure the top of the black strip is even with the top of the box.  This is now Santa's belt.  

To make the belt buckle, adhere the small piece of black paper to the center of the Crushed Curry piece of paper, then adhere it to black strip.  On Twila's project she added two black strips (1/2" x 5 1/2") to make suspenders.  I didn't add it to my project because of the size of my goodies in the bag.  

For the tag I used the stamp set The Little Things in the Holiday catalog and punched it out with the 2 1/4" circle punch.  The red piece is cut out with a retired 2 1/2" circle punch.  You could use a framelit from the Layering Circle Framelits for your red circle.  

I have been trying to use up some of my retired ribbon and got this ribbon out of my stash.

Here is a close up of the tag I created.  I needed something fast to make as I decided at 12:30am I needed to make 20 of these.  LOL
