Fall Sheltering Tree

stampin up, Stampin' Up! Sheltering Tree #137163, Birthday Blossoms #139471, Fall, Tree, Happy Birthday Card, Leaves, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more card and gift ideas go to Stampinscrapper.com

This card turned out better than I thought it would when I was thinking about it.  It looks like the tree and leaf were made to fit together.  Can you believe the tree is from Sheltering Tree stamp set and the leaf is from the Leaflets Framelits.

To do the leaf I made a stencil from the Leaflets Framelits.  I took the biggest leaf and cut it out of whisper white card stock.  I then used the Cherry Cobbler, Chocolate Chip, Pear Pizzazz, Pumpkin Pie and So Saffron inks to sponge in the colors.  I first used the So Saffron all over the leaf opening to give me a base to start off with.  Then I just started adding the other colors in without any particular order. 

HINT:  start rubbing the dauber on the stencil before you put it on your paper you are using for your card.  Sometimes if you start right on the card piece it can be too dark.  If you get some of the ink off first before you put it on the card you will get a softer look.  You can always add more, you can't take away.  

It was fun to see how everyone's was different in class.  They all turned out so beautiful!  

You will need the following items to make this card:

Chocolate Chip Card Stock #102128

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

Cherry Cobbler Card Stock #119685

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

Pumpkin Pie Card Stock #105117

  • cut at 3 3/4" x 5"

Very Vanilla Card Stock #101650

  • cut at 3 1/2" x 4 3/4" - for the front of the card
  • cut at 4" x 5 /4" - for the inside of the card

I stamped the tree on the inside of the card and on the envelope.  

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Happy Stampin!

Fall Thankful Thoughts

Stampin up, Stampin! Up! Thankful Thoughts #141522, Stampin' Up! Perpetual Birthday Calendar #137167, Woodland Embossing folder #139673, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards and gift ideas go to stampinscrapper.com

I think this is my favorite fall card I have made so far.  It warms my heart and puts a smile on my face each time I look at it.  This was a fun card to make, especially with the Copper Foil leaves on it.  The Copper Foil Paper is absolutely gorgeous!!!!  If you don't have it yet, you are going to want to buy it!  This is one product I hope Stampin' Up!  puts in the new annual catalog in June.  I have to admit I do have a stash of it already.  :)

The first think I did when I made this card was stamp all the leaves in Cajun Craze and Delightful Dijon all over the Whisper White card stock and along the bottom edge of the paper that goes on the inside of the card.  I also put it along the side or you could do the bottom edge of my envelope.  So pretty!

Next you will run that piece through the Big Shot using the Woodland Embossing Folder.  I wanted the trees to have some depth to them so I took a Dauber with Crumb Cake ink and added it to the raised part of the paper.  It made a world of difference when I did that.  

The best part is when I added the Copper Foil Paper leaves.  Aren't they just gorgeous!  I took a close up picture, below, so you could see better how pretty they truly are.  I have been using the Copper sheets on almost everything,  LOL  I made a triple loop bow with our Linen Thread to finish the card off.  


The picture doesn't truly show you how beautiful and classy the Copper Foil Sheets are.  Trust me, you are going to love them!

You will need the following measurements for this card:

Cajun Craze Card Stock #119684

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

Delightful Dijon Card Stock #138338

  • cut 2 at 4" x 5 1/4" - I put one on the front and inside of the card
  • cut at 1/2" x 3 1/2"

Whisper White Card Stock #100730

  • cut 2 at 3 3/4" x 5" - one for the front of the card and one for the inside 
  • scrap for the "A Note of Thanks"

I hope everyone has a blessed and relaxing Sunday!

Happy Stampin!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!  I can't wait to see all my little ones in their costumes!  They are going to be sooooo cute!!!!  

I am not a big Halloween person, I would say I am more of a fall person.  I love the cute things about Halloween, but not the scary part.  I am a real whimp when it comes to scary stuff.  

When I saw this plaque at Michael's I knew right away what I wanted to do with it.  I was so excited when I got home that I started working on it right away.  I have had it done for quite a while, but wanted to save it for today.  

I have used several different products on this project.  They are:

Stamp Sets:

Acorny Thank You, Cookie Cutter Halloween, Sheltering Tree and Vintage Leaves


Flourish Thinlits, Large Letters Framelits, Layering Oval Framelits, Leaflets Framelits


Acorn Builder and Cookie Cutter Builder 


Crumb Cake, Crushed Curry, Early Espresso, Rich Razzleberry, Tangerine Tango, Wild Wasabi and Whisper White


Crushed Curry, Early Espresso,  Rich Razzleberry


Early Espresso, Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron, Wild Wasabi

Here are some closeups of different sections.


I added Wink of Stella on the leaves.  Look how they sparkle!




I love it when Mark really likes something I make and this is one of the projects he loves.  I can't wait to hang this up in my home!

Tomorrow I will have a NEW PRODUCT  to share with you!!!  I am so excited about it!  I am placing an order very early tomorrow morning to get it.  I know you are going to love it too!

Have a fabulous Halloween!

Happy Stampin!

Can you believe this is the last Friday for my Fall Friday Series?!  I will be posting my final project on Halloween, Monday, October 31st.  I have throughly enjoyed doing this series.  I hope you have too.   

This weeks project is a bigger box than I usually make.  Every year I make up a little goodie box for my girls for Halloween.  This year, I kinda went a little crazy and needed a bigger box.  So, off to my craft room to create one.  It looks like a medium size milk carton, which it pretty darn cute if I say so myself. 

To make this project you will need the following products:

Halloween Night 12" x 12" Card Stock Pack #142023

  • cut the Basic Gray at 9 7/8" x 12"

Pumpkin Pie Card Stock #105117

  • scraps for the tags

Whisper White Card Stock #100730

  • scraps for the vampire and tags

Halloween Night Specialty Designer Series Paper #142022

  • cut 4 at 2 5/8" x 3 7/8"

On the Basic Gray piece of paper you will need to do the following:

  • on the 9 7/8" score at 2 7/8" from each side
  • on the 12" score at 2 7/8", 5 3/4", 8 5/8", 11 1/2"
  • cut the bottom 1/2" x 2 7/8" section off
  • cut on the score lines from the bottom of the paper up to the first score line 
  • use a strong adhesive (such as Fast Fuse or Tear and Tape) on the 1/2" section
  • adhere the sides together
  • overlap the bottom pieces to for the bottom of the box
  • pinch the top together and clip with the Gold Binder Clips

You will then adhere the Designer Series Paper and decorate the box.  Below is a picture of how to cut and score the paper


The bottom is where you will cut up to the first score line.  This is the bottom of the box.  

This is a pretty easy box to make and you can make it for any occasion.  




Have a wonderful weekend.  I am getting excited to see all my angels in their costumes this weekend.  They have had a lot of energy the last few days.  They are getting so excited about Trick-or-Treating.  

Happy Stampin!

Fall Friday Week #8 - Mini Treat Bag

Fall Friday Week #8!!!  I am having so much fun making these projects to share with all of you!  I have a special one planned for you on Halloween.  

I used the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits to make the bag with the Halloween Night Specialty Designer Series Paper, also known as DSP.  There are a lot of different designs in this pack of paper that absolutely perfect for Halloween, Fall and everyday cards/projects too!  

To make this card you will need the following products:

Halloween Night Speciality DSP #142022

  • cut at 6" x 12"
  • cut at 2" x 5" - this is for one of the banners

Pumpkin Pie Card Stock #105117

  • 2" x 5"

Whisper White Card Stock #100730

  • 2 1/4" x 6"

Below are pictures of how to put together the Mini Treat Bag. Sometimes it is easier to see something done, then to read it.  I am definitely a visual learner.  

This is what the two piece will look like once you fold the score marks.


You will put adhesive on the thin strip of paper on the right in the picture above.  You will adhere it to the bigger piece as seen below.


You will then adhere the two back strips together followed by the bottom section.  


You are now ready to decorate your treat bag!  I used the Cookie Cutter Halloween and Spooky Fun stamp sets and the Halloween Night Baker's Twine.

Here is the candy that I put inside the treat bag.



This weekend is going to be filled with fun times!  I have my Stamp Camp tonight, going to the pumpkin farm on Saturday morning and Disney on Ice in the afternoon.  Then on Sunday we have our small group, which I am excited to go to as we have missed the last two weeks.  It is such a fun time to get together with friends and learn more about our faith.  

I hope you have a great and blessed weekend!

Happy Stampin!

Vintage Leaves Birthday Card

stampin up, Stampin' Up!, Vintage Leaves stamp set, Endless Birthday Wishes stamp set Gorgeous Grunge stamp set, designed by Stampin Scrapper.  Please see more card and gift ideas at stampinscrapper.com  #stampin_scrapper #butterflies, babies and stamping

This is a card that I made a while ago, before I had my blog, and I wanted to share it with you.  I use the Vintage Leaves stamp set a lot for masculine and fall themed cards.   They are so beautiful and are perfect for a lot of different techniques too.  You could do the shaving cream, dryer sheet, baby wipe and dry embossing just to name a few techniques.  

This is an easy card that you could make a lot of at one time.  I am part of a swap group that does different themed cards each month and this month was fall.  We also send each other birthday cards monthly and this was my card for the October birthdays.   

To make this card you will need the following products:

Whisper White Thick Card Stock #140272

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

Early Espresso Card Stock #119686

  • cut at 1/2" x 3 3/4"

Whisper White Card Stock #100730

  • cut at 3 3/4" x 5"

To make the leaves you will first start with the Crushed Curry leaf in the middle of your paper followed by the Cajun Craze and the Garden Green leaves.  I then used the stamp from Gorgeous Grunge with Early Espresso ink for the dots splatter.  The Linen Thread was wrapped around the card three times and then tied in a bow.  I popped this layer up using the Stampin' Dimensionals.  

I will be on my way home from the retreat today.  Please pray for safe travels for all of us.  

Happy Stampin!

Fall Friday Week #7 - Shadow Box


Does this look familiar?  I made a shadow box in August for the first time.  I love them because you can make them any size you want and decorate them any way you would like.  This time I went with the Halloween theme. 

To see the one from August and see the directions on how to make it click Here.

For this shadow box above I used the Spooky Fun, Jar of Haunts and Cookie Cutter Halloween stamp sets and the Halloween Scenes Edgelits Dies.  What is really nice is you can get the Spooky Fun Stamp Set and the Halloween Scenes Edgelits Dies as a bundle and save 10%!!!  I love the bundles!

I used the Halloween Night Specialty Designer Series Paper to make the shadow box and black card stock for the back ground.  If you notice my spider web and ghost are bright white so you can see them better.   To get them that way I first stamped them with the Craft Stampin' Ink in Whisper White.  Then I took a white gel pen (retired from SU) and went over the images.  That made them really stand out.  If you would like a more muted look, just skip that step.

Speaking of the White Craft Ink, I can not find where I read it, but Stampin' Up! was rated as having the best Craft White Ink!!! Yay!!! 

Have a fabulous weekend!

Happy Stampin!

October's Happy Planner

IMG_7032It was time to decorate my Happy Planner for October and I couldn't wait.  The above picture was the first page of October that I decorated, as I ran out of time the week before to work on it.  This page was easy to decorate as Saturday is my 28th Wedding Anniversary to my Mr. Wonderful, Mark.  I used the same colors we had in our wedding, Smoky Slate and Sweet Sugarplum.  Believe it or not I used a stamp set that you would think of only using for birthdays, Birthday Blossoms.  For the banner and Happy Anniversary it came from the stamp set, Banners For You.  


This page I used the Acorny Thank You stamp set with Crumb Cake, Calypso Coral, Night of Navy and Old Olive ink.  


I just love the stamp set Cookie Cutter Halloween.  I think I have used it almost everyday on something.  Do you have a stamp set that you are drawn to?  I am going to be sad after Halloween when we won't be able to use all of the little guys in this set.  I will, however, be able to still use the scarecrow.  I have to say he is my favorite out of all of them.  


This page has the first few days of November since Halloween is on Monday.  How cute is the jar with the candy corn falling out of it? One thing I like about the Happy Planner is you can use the markers from Stampin' Up! and it does not go through the paper.  

Do you decorate your planner?  I hope you get some inspiration from my pages to give you ideas on how you can decorate one too.

Have a wonderful day and enjoy this beautiful fall day!

Happy Stampin'

Fall Friday Week #6 - Popcorn Box


Can you believe this is week #6 of my Fall Friday?!  Time is going so fast!  I am having so much fun creating different projects for you every week.  I have another series planned for when this when ends on Halloween.  I think you are going to like it!  

This is my first time using the Popcorn Box Framelits and I love it!!!! Why did I wait so long to use it?  You will be surprised how  easy this was to put together.  

You are going to need to cut out two of the framelits to make this box.  I used the Tear and Tape to put it together as you are going to want to use a strong adhesive whenever you make a box.  I wanted to decorate it but wasn't sure how I was going to do it as the top is wider than on the bottom.  Then the light bulb went off!  

First, stamp a piece of crumb cake card stock using Soft Suede ink and the Hardwood stamp set.  Then flip over that piece of paper so the ink is face down.  Put the framelit that you used to cut out the box and trace the left side of the framelit.  Below is a picture to show you what I mean about the left hand side of the framelit.  You will need to cut out four of theses.  

IMG_6988 IMG_6990

I then used my trimmer to cut them out.  I lined up the lines with the cutting track so I could have a straight line.  I think my OCD kicked in on this.  You can also use scissors to cut out the pieces if you wish.  Here is a picture that I took to show you how I lined up the  paper to cut it.


I then used the stamp sets Vintage Leaves,Cookie Cutter Halloween and Teeny Tiny Wishes to decorate the front of the box.  Of course if you have a box you must have chocolate!!! Yummy!

Have a wonderful Friday and a great weekend!  

Happy Stampin!
