I must first apologize for the delay in blogging this last week.  I typed up my post for Thursday, everything was set to go and I went to save it and my post disappeared.  I totally lost it!  I couldn't believe it.  I didn't have time to redo the whole thing again as Robin and I were trying to get things done for my Catalog Launch party on Saturday.  

I had ever intention on Saturday evening sitting down and writing a post about my party, but I was so tired that I couldn't even think straight.  Life has taken over my last two days and so, here I am a week later getting to a post.  I think when you look at my card for CASEing Tuesday this week, you will agree it was worth the wait. 

Have you ever made a card and have fallen in love with it? I am that way with this card.  I love, love, love the Leaf Ribbon that goes with the Animal Expedition Suite.  It is so pretty and different from any ribbon we have had since I became a demonstrator.  

Here is our inspiration card this week:

How cute is this rhinoceros?

I had so much fun coloring him with the Smoky Slate Stampin Blends markers.  I used the Old Olive for the grass and a combination of Daffodil Delight and Calypso Coral for the bird.  

Here are the measurements of the paper I used on this card:

Cardstock:

Smoky Slate

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

Basic Gray

  • cut at 3 1/4" x 4"

Whisper White

  • 3 1/8" x 3 7/8"
  • 4" x 5 1/4"
  • scrap for 1 1//4" circle

  • scrap for 1 3/8" scalloped circle

Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper

  • cut at 3" x 4 1/4"

When I first laid my ribbon on this card I was trying to figure out what was the best way to adhere this to the card. I tried different types of glue, but came to the realization that Glue Dots worked perfect!  I adhered them to the leaves and then laid it right where I wanted it on the card.  This ribbon is so awesome!  I hope Stampin' Up! makes more ribbon like this in the future!

StampinUpAnimalOutingCASEingTuesdayStampinScrapperJoyceWhitman6

This time I stamped the image on the back of my envelope.  I think I am going to have to do that more often.  I also stamped the same image on the inside of my card.  I wasn't sure about not coloring the images on the envelope and inside the card.  What do you think?  Would you color or leave it as is?

I sure hopes my friend likes her thank you note, I sure do!

A Little Bit Of Old And A Little Bit Of New (CT #148)

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! A Little Wild #144344, Happy Celebrations #143012. Swirly Frames #146519, Stampin Blends, Color Theory DSP, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

Today's card is one I made for my niece's sons first birthday.  I used a little bit of old, A Little Wild and Happy Celebrations stamp sets and Color Theory designer series paper with a little bit of new, Swirly Frames stamp set.  When I saw the Swirly Frames stamp set at Stampin' Up! OnStage I really liked it. I kept thinking about all the possibilities with this set.  Then during prize patrol I won this set!  I was so excited!

The Happy Celebrations stamp set is one that is retiring and it is now while supplies last.  This stamp set, along with all the retiring products, are while supplies last and will no longer be available after May 31st.  

I got my inspiration for this card from my CASEing Tuesday group.  Here is the picture that is our inspiration this week.

29595125_10213132084831134_3353432007716270686_n

For the animals I stamped them first with Memento Black ink, then I colored them with our Stampin Blends markers.  I used the Crumb Cake, Bronze and Smoky Slate.  These will be available for purchase on June 1st.  Since I only wanted the front of the animals I only inked up that part of my stamp and then cut them out with the Little Loves Framelits.  You will have to do a little trimming to cut off the part that connects to the other side.  These stamps are made to make gift tags, so there is the front and back of the animals.

To do the frame I stamped the frame image onto Crumb Cake cardstock using Soft Suede ink and then fussy cut it out.  I stamped the Happy sentiments with Soft Suede ink and the Birthday To You with Crushed Curry ink on Whisper White cardstock.  To adhere the frame to the Whisper White cardstock I used our Foam Adhesive Strips.  They were the perfect size for this project.  I then used the adhesive strips to attach the animals so they were all at the same height.

I stamped a lion in the inside of my card and an elephant on the outside of the envelope.

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you have a terrific week!

Yesterday one of my precious daycare angels turned 3 years old.  Yay!  He loves dragons, so what better stamp set to use than the Magical Day one.  I have to admit, I purposely bought this set because it has the stamp Hope Your Day is Magical.  We all know what that means?!  Disney!!!  We are going to Disney, for the 8th time, and I thought it would be perfect for my scrapbooks.  

Once I got the stamp set and started playing with it, I realized it makes great birthday cards.  Since I have mostly boys in my daycare, I have been using it a lot lately.  This stamp set, Magical Day, and the coordinating framelits, Magical Mates, are available as a bundle, you save 10%, but will be retiring at the end of the month.

Did you notice the designer series paper on the card?  It is in the new Share What You Love Suite that is in the new annual catalog.  Stampin' Up! is so wonderful, that they are releasing this suite for you to purchase in the month of May, before the annual catalog goes live!  How awesome is that!!!  All the details are further down in this post.

Amazing You Card

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Amazing You #147212, Oh My Stars Embossing Folder #143710, Layering Circle Framelits #141705, 2 1/4" Circle Punch, Sale-a-Bration 2018, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

 

Did you get in the first round for the new Stamparatus?  I got my email yesterday that I needed to finish my order.  I was so excited! I know you are going to love your new tool.  I use it all the time.  

If you are wondering how I already have one, it is because I am on the Leader 2 Leader team.  We are a team of demonstrators from all over the world working together with Stampin' Up! to help develop new products.  This was the big project we were working on for the last 2 years.  Can I tell you it was so hard not to say anything to all of you.  We had to sign a confidentiality agreement to be on this team.  Now I can talk about it all I want!  I can't tell you enough how much I love this product!!

This was my first card that I did in my classes, so my customers could play with the Stamparatus too.  One of the panels I used for the blue sentiments and one panel for the Calypso Coral sentiment.  I have to say, one of my top reasons why I love this products is you can stamp over and over the same image and your paper doesn't move.  

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Amazing You #147212, Oh My Stars Embossing Folder #143710, Layering Circle Framelits #141705, 2 1/4" Circle Punch, Sale-a-Bration 2018, 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:

Night of Navy Cardstock # 100867

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

Calypso Coral Cardstock #122925

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

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4" for the inside
  • cut at 3 3/4" x 5" for the front
  • cut at 3" x 3"

This is a real fast and easy card, especially with the Stamparatus, that you could make a lot of them at one time.  The first thing I did was stamp my sentiment from the Amazing You stamp set in the Sale-A-Bration catalog with Night of Navy and Calypso Coral inks.  I then punched it out with the 2 1/4" Circle Punch.  The other circle layers were cut out with the Layering Circle Framelits.  I used the Oh My Stars embossing folder on the white cardstock and added Rhinestones to give it a little bit of bling.  I popped up the circles using the Stampin Dimensionals.  The other layers were adhered with Snail Adhesive.

Magical Day Kids Card

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Magical Day stamp set #145857, Magical Mates Framelits Dies #145660, Tutti Frutti Cards and Envelopes #147242, Layering Oval Framelits #141706, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

Have you seen the adorable stamp set, Magical Day, and coordinating framelits, Magical Mates, in the occasions catalog.  I have to say, when I read magical day, I immediately thought of Disney World.  Since we are going back in July, I knew I had to get this set for my scrapbooking pages of our trip. Another great thing about this stamp set and framelits is they come in a bundle!  You can save 10% when you purchase both of them together.   

I made this card for my niece's son and one of my daycare angels.  The card base is from the Sale-A-Bration catalog and they are called the Tutti Frutti Cards and Envelopes.  You can earn the card bases and envelopes FREE when you purchase $50 or more in product.  The one thing that impressed me with these cards are how sturdy they are.  They already have a design on them, so all you have to do is put a sentiment on it and you are ready to go.  Perfect for when you in a card in a hurry.

I used the Blends to color in the dragon and then cut it out with the matching framelit.  I used the dark and light Old Olive color and red is colored with the Stampin Write Marker in Real Red. 

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Magical Day stamp set #145857, Magical Mates Framelits Dies #145660, Tutti Frutti Cards and Envelopes #147242, Layering Oval Framelits #141706, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

For the sentiment I stamped it twice.  Once in black and once in Real Red inks.  I cut out only the word, magical, out of the red one, there is a framelit for it.  I then adhered it over the top of the black one with Snail Adhesive.  This and the dragon were attached to the piece of black paper.  I made the banner with my scissors.  I popped the dragon up with Stampin Dimensionals.  

For the inside of the card and the envelope I stamped the little knight on the bottom left hand corner.  I did not color him, but you could.

To make this project you will need the following products:

Tutti Frutti Cards & Envelopes #147242

  • I used the Lemon Lime Twist striped one

Basic Black Cardstock # 121045

  • cut at 2 1/2" x 5"  

Whisper White Cardstock # 100730

  • cut at 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" for the dragon
  • cut at 2" x 6" for the sentiment

This was such a fun card to make for the boys.  I will definitely make more of them.  

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Magical Day stamp set #145857, Magical Mates Framelits Dies #145660, Tutti Frutti Cards and Envelopes #147242, Layering Oval Framelits #141706, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

CASEing Tuesday!!!  I have an easy peasy lemon squeezy card for you today!

I saw the Picture Perfect Party designer series paper and wasn't sure if I would like it or not.  Then I saw what others were making with it and I was crazy over it.  I immediately ordered and used it on this weeks CASEing Tuesday card.  It is so easy to make a card with this paper!  This card took me no more that 10 minutes to make, if that.  It is so easy, that I made 50 more of them!  Yes, you read that correct.  I am going to a retreat in February and this is going to be my swap card.  

Here is the inspiration for this weeks card:

26993874_10214064183455584_713436980909283235_n

On this card I used the Peekaboo Peach cardstock, which I love, because it will be retiring in April.  I start now telling all of my customers that if you really want something in the annual catalog now is the time to get it.  Get the cardstock, designer series paper, ribbon, embellishments, ink and definitely refills for your ink pads.  Trust me, I learned the hard way about not getting the reinker at the same time when I bought the ink pad.  I won't do that again.  The colors that for sure will be retiring are the Dapper Denim, Emerald Envy, Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach and Sweet Sugarplum.  I am going to miss these colors.

To make this project you will need the following products:

Peekaboo Peach Cardstock:

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"

Bermuda Bay Cardstock #131197

  • cut at 2 1/4" x 3 1/4"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

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

This card is very easy to assemble.  The first thing I did was to wrap the ribbon, Berry Burst Metallic Edge Ribbon, around the center of your designer series paper.  Adhere it to your card base with Snail adhesive.  Next, stamp your image onto your white paper and cut it out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  At the same time you can cut out the Bermuda Bay piece with the Layering Oval Framelits. 

Adhere the white piece to the Bermuda Bay cardstock and use Stampin Dimensionals to adhere it to your card base.  I added 3 rhinestones to give it a little bit of bling.   That is it, you are done!  Wasn't that easy!

I went to a Leadership Conference in Michigan the first weekend in February and learned so much.  I have had my mind going crazy with ideas and trying to comprehend everything we learned.  It was so much fun!  I got to meet the number one demonstrator in the company, Robyn Cardon and the second demonstrator, Angie Juda.  They were so nice and graciously taught us how to be a great leader.  Ronda Wade, another fabulous demonstrator, put on the conference and did a fabulous job. 

Here are some pictures from the weekend.

If you look at the bottom left picture, my very good friend, Cathy, is right next to me.  We keep saying we need to get a picture of the two of us together and never do it.  In April, that is the first thing we are going to do!

One thing that totally amazed me about this conference was how gracious everyone was.  We all helped out each other, got along, had fun, laughed, stamped, learned and just have a good time with each other.  I met some of the nicest people and know that I will be friends with them for a very long time.  I can't wait to see them again.

Thank you for stopping in today!  I hope you have a terrific day!

I used the Memento Black ink to stamp the shoes randomly on the 3 3/4" x 5" piece of Whisper White paper.  I also stamped it on the bottom left corner of the 4" x 5 1/4" Whisper White paper, for the inside of the card, and the envelope.   Happy Birthday is stamped with Dapper Denim ink.

After I punched the Dapper Denim and Whisper White pieces with the Banner Triple Punch, I laid them out on the white piece of paper that is stamped with the shoes.  I wanted so see where I wanted them to go, before I adhered them permanently.   I had extra cardstock on the left hand side after I adhered them, so I just trimmed it with my paper snips.

Perennial Birthday Card

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Perennial Birthday stamp set #145760, Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper #145564, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

Sometimes I want a fast and easy card that I can make up in about 5-10 minutes and I think this one is a great one just for that.  We made this card at my event last weekend and it is so easy.  Again, I used my favorite paper the Sweet Soiree Specialty designer series paper in the Occasions catalog.  

You could easily make this a masculine card by leaving off the flowers and rhinestones and add balloons instead. 

To make this project you will need the following products:

Marina Mist Cardstock #119682

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

Old Olive Cardstock #100702

  • cut at 1 3/8" x 5 1/4"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

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

Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper #145564

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

I used the Perennial Birthday stamp set in the Occasions catalog for the sentiment on this card.  I used Marina Mist for the Happy Birthday and Daffodil Delight for the flowers.  To add a little bit of bling, I put a rhinestone, the biggest ones on the sheet, in the center of each flower.  I than stamped one flower on the inside of the card and three on the envelope, both in the bottom left hand corner using the Daffodil Delight ink.

What a great day today is!!!  The 2018 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs are live!   You are going to absolutely love these catalogs, I know I do.  I have to say, the Party Pandas stamp set is my favorite set in the Sale-A-Bration catalog this year.  They are so stinkin cute!  The above card is so easy to make and great for a kids birthday, a friend, family member, maybe even a teenager!  For a boy you could change the colors to a green, blue and red.

To make this card you will need the following products:

Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock #144245

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

Tempting Turquoise Cardstock #102067

  • cut at 2 1/4" x 5 1/2"

Daffodil Delight Cardstock #119683

  • cut at 2 1/8" x 5 1/2"

Whisper White Cardstock #100370

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

The first time I tried to stamp the pandas I used the black Memento ink and I really didn't like how they looked.  I wanted a dark, rich black and wasn't getting it.  So, I tried the Black Archival ink and it turned out exactly as I wanted.  I do have a tip for you that I learned while making this card.  

You know how sometimes when you are stamping and your solid image isn't perfect. You want to fix it, but how do you do that?  On my stamped image I tried to use the Stampin' Write marker, Basic Black, but it was slightly darker in color.  Then I tried to use my blender pen and the ink from my stamp pad.  That didn't really work either.  What was I going to do?  I didn't want to throw away the card and waste paper.  I saw my marker laying on my desk along with the blender pen and thought, why not?!  I took the blender pen and lightly swiped the tip of the marker and colored in the bare spot I had on my stamped image.  It worked perfectly! Yay!!!

After I stamped my pandas I used the confetti stamp in the set and stamped them randomly using the Daffodil Delight, Lemon Lime Twist and Tempting Turquoise inks.  I also colored in the circles on their hats with the same colors.  On the base of my card I stamped the Happy Birthday with the Lemon Lime Twist in alternating the direction of my stamp.  For the inside of my card and the envelope, I used the panda on the bottom left hand corner on each.
