To help celebrate our 150th card, we are having a giveaway!!! 

Check out all the details on our CASE-ing Tuesday Facebook Group.

It is so fun to use new stamps to create projects with!  Today on CASEing Tuesday we are using a beautiful card on page 142 in the new annual catalog as our inspiration.

I used the Rooted In Nature stamp set along with the gorgeous Garden Impressions designer series paper on my card today.   Since I wanted two different colors on my tree, I used the Stampin Write markers to ink up my stamp.  I wanted two colors on the leaves of the tree so I first colored it all over with Old Olive and then dabbed Shaded Spruce, with the wide end of the marker, randomly over the tree.  For the tree trunk I used the Early Espresso marker.  When you use a marker to ink up your stamp  you need to huff on it before you stamp your project.  This will help the ink stay wet so you will get a clean stamped image. 

To make this project you need the following products:

Cardstock:

Early Espresso

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

Whisper White

  • cut 4" x 5 1/4"

Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper

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

I used the Burlap Ribbon to make my banner on the top and added one of the leaves from the Leaves Trinkets embellishments.  I have to say, these are my favorite embellishments in the catalog.

Rooted In Nature (CT #149)

Have you ever embossed on designer series paper?  I have not, so this is something new for me.  I love learning new things!    On the card that is our inspiration for CASEing Tuesday, the creator did just that.  I really like how it looks and will be trying it on other pieces of designer series paper.  

Here is a picture of our inspiration card

28379808_10213132095791408_325754790312592331_n

I will have to admit that this week it took me a little bit longer to come up with a design.  I really struggled with this card.  I do, however, like how my final card turned out.

To make this card you will need the following products:

Cardstock:

Soft Suede

  • cut at 5 1/2" X 8 1/2" 

Grapefruit Grove

  • cut at 2" x 2"

Mint Macaron

  • cut at 2 1/4" x 2 1/4"

Tranquil Tide

  • cut at 2 1/5" x 2 1/5"

Nature's Poem Designer Series Paper

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

I used the White Embossing Powder for the sentiment, Layering Squares Framelits to make the squares and the Triple Banner Punch to make the ends on the banner.  To finish off the card I added the copper leaves from the Leaves Trinkets embellishments.  The picture in the catalog really doesn't show how pretty these really are in person.

For the inside of the card and on the envelope I used the stamp that matches the embellishment.  If first stamped it in Tranquil Tide, then in Mint Macaron and then again in Mint Macaron without reinking the stamp.  This way you get 3 different hues of color.

Rooted In Nature Sympathy Card

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Rooted In Nature Stamp Set #146482, Leaves Trinkets #146343, Wood Textures Designer Series Paper #144177, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

Sympathy cards are always hard to make, especially when they are for your family.  This past week I had to make a card for my aunt and her family when my uncle passed away.  When I went into my stampin studio, I saw the Rooted In Nature stamp set sitting on my craft table and thought it would be perfect for a masculine card.  This is a great stamp set to use,  because whenever I think of  him, I think of trees and being out with nature. 

To make this card you will need the following products:

Cardstock:

Old Olive

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

Whisper White

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4" for the inside of the card

Wood Textures Designer Series Paper

  • cut at 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" 

I stamped my images right on a piece of the Wood Textures designer series paper.  For the trees I used my Old Olive and Early Espresso Stampin markers to color my stamp.  I then huffed on the stamp to moisten the ink before stamping.  When you use markers to color your stamp, you want to make sure that you always huff on them so the ink is still moist and not dried out.  If you don't do this step you won't always get a good image.  I stamped one of the trees and then stammped it again, without putting more ink on it (this is the middle tree).  I reinked my stamp with the Stampin markers and stamped the third tree.

For the sentiment I used Soft Suede ink.  One trick I have taught my customers is when you are doing a solid image, such as this sentiment, you want to ink your stamp up a little different.  I tell them to tap, tap, tap your stamp on the ink pad, then twist, twist, twist, followed by tap, tap, tap.  This really does make a difference. 

I taught this to one of my customers who was having trouble with the Waterfront stamp set not getting a good image when stamped.  She text me and said that it made a world of difference in how her image was turning out.  Yay!  This is one of the many aspects of being a demonstrator for Stampin' Up! that I just love.  Helping people and bringing smiles to their faces.  It just warms my heart.

I then wrapped 5/8" Burlap Ribbon around the bottom and added one of the Leaves Trinkets, in the copper finish.  Because the Burlap Ribbon is quite thick I adhered this layer to the card base with Stampin Dimensionals.  Whenever I put ribbon on my project I always put the layer with the ribbon on with Stampin Dimensionals.  Your paper will lay a lot nicer over ribbon this way.

I decorated the inside and the envelope with the trees the same way I did them on the front of the card.

You could change the sentiment to Happy Birthday or Congratulations for more masculine cards.  

Thank you for stopping by today.  I really appreciate it!  Have a great day!

Masculine Birthday Blossoms

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Birthday Blossoms #139471, Wood Textures Designer Series Paper #144177, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

The font in the Birthday Blossoms stamp set is one of my favorites.   I am really going to miss this stamp set when it retires on May 31st.  I love how it has sentiments for narrow areas, like in the card above, or for when you have a little more room.  There is also a flower in the stamp set that coordinates with the Pansy Punch and that is also retiring at the end of the month.  

The technique on this card is called the Starburst Technique.  This is a great way to use up scraps or showcase different patterns from a designer series paper pack.  So many possibilities with this technique.  You could do a masculine, new baby, birthday, wedding, anniversary, get well, hello, thinking of you, sympathy, just because or a note card.  These are just some ideas for cards, I am sure there are a lot more reasons to send a card. 

To make this project you will need the following products:

Cardstock:

Night of Navy

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

  • cut at 1/2" x 5"

Marina Mist (Retiring)

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

Whisper White

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

Wood Textures Designer Series Paper

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

I have made this technique before using a different designer series paper.  It is amazing how different a card can look, just by changing the designer series paper.  The possibilities are endless!  

Click on the picture below and it will take you to to the card I posted on February 6, 2017.  The post has step by step directions on how to create this beautiful, or should I say handsome, birthday card for the man in your life.

Directions for the Sunburst Technique 

I am excited that the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Pack is going to be in the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog.  I have so much of it, I was wondering what I was going to do with all of it.  Now I have another year to play and create using it!  Yay!

Embossing Paste meets Embossing Powder

  • Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Daisy Delight stamp set #143669, Lovely Wishes stamp set #145924, Embossing Paste #141979, Emboss Powder #141636, Daisy Punch #143713, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

Oh My Goodness!!!  I can't even begin to tell you how much fun this technique was to make and how beautiful it is.  I would have never thought of this idea.  Thank God, someone did and was kind enough to share with everyone.  I don't remember who I first saw this technique done with, so who ever you are, thank you, thank you, thank you.  

I don't know if you can see on the picture or not, but I put Copper Embossing Powder over the Embossing Paste and heat set it.  It is so fun to make and it is so impressive when it is done.  We made these in my technique class and the ladies were crazy about them.  

StampinUpDaisyDelightLovelyWishesEmbossingPasteTechniqueStampinScrapperJoyceWhitman4

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

Cardstock:

Night of Navy

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

Whisper White

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

Wild Wasabi

  • cut at 2" x 3 1/2"

Copper Foil Sheet

  • scrap for 1/2" circle

To make this card you have to work kinda fast.  You don't want to let the paste dry before you put the embossing powder on it.  The first thing I did was put on the Embossing Paste using the brick masks from the Patter Party Decorative Masks.  As soon as I had that finished added the copper embossing powder to all of the embossing paste. 

I had to put sprinkle the embossing powder over it a couple of times to make sure it adhered the way I wanted it to.  You then use your heat gun to warm up the embossing powder so it melts.  You will have to hold the heat gun a little bit longer than you do when you use the embossing powder with the VersaMark ink.  It is so fun to watch the embossing powder melt into the paste.   Such a neat effect!  

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Daisy Delight stamp set #143669, Lovely Wishes stamp set #145924, Embossing Paste #141979, Emboss Powder #141636, Daisy Punch #143713, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

You will notice on the picture that I did not put the Embossing Paste all over my card, just part of it.  You can do whatever you would like to do with yours.  

I stamped my sentiment from Lovely Wishes and the flower is from the Delightful Daisy stamp set using the Night of Navy ink.  I punched out the daisy with the coordinating punch.  I used the Leaf punch that was carried over from the holiday catalog.  I sure hope they keep both of those in the new annual catalog which is coming out in June.

For a final touch I added a 1/2" circle from the Copper Foil Sheets and put it in the middle of the daisy.  I also stamped the daisy on the inside of my card and on the envelope.

I hope you will give this fun technique a try.  If you have any questions, please let me know.

Happy Birthday Gorgeous Recessed Panel Card

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set #143662, Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack #144177, Stitched Shapes Framelits #145372, Layering Oval Framelits #141706, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

I apologize for the delay in this post this morning.  I was having issues with my internet.  Everything is good now.  Yay!!!  

I have been wanting to make a recessed panel card for quite a while now and thought this would be a great time to do it.   I was a little intimidated by it, if I am honest.  Looking at samples on my computer, I just couldn't figure out how did they get the section with designer paper lower than the rest of the card.  So, I went to the first place I go when I am trying to figure something out, Google!  Thank goodness for them! 

When I watched a video on YouTube on how to do it, I was shocked at how easy it was to make.  What had I been waiting for?  I am going to share with you just how easy it is to make.  

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

Very Vanilla Thick Cardstock #144237

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

Very Vanilla Cardstock #101650

  • cut 2 at 3/4" x 5 1/2"
  • cut at 2 1/4 x 3 1/4" for the sentiment

Early Espresso Cardstock #119686

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

Cajun Craze Cardstock #119684

  • cut at 2 1/4" x 3 1/4"

Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack #144177

  • cut at 1 3/4" x 5 1/2"

The first thing you will do is adhere the Wood Texture designer series paper onto the Very Vanilla Thick cardstock base.  You are going to come in 3/4" from the left hand side of the card base (where the fold is).  You will then take the two skinny strips of Very Vanilla paper and adhere it to the two pieces of Early Espresso cardstock.   

Adhere the Early Espresso pieces using Stampin Dimensionals and line them up with the outside edges of your card.  You now have the recessed part of your card finished.

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set #143662, Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack #144177, Stitched Shapes Framelits #145372, Layering Oval Framelits #141706, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

Next, stamp your sentiment using the Early Espresso ink and cut it out with the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  The layer behind the sentiment was cut out using Cajun Craze cardstock and the Layering Oval Framelits. 

To keep the sentiment level on both sections of the card (part is on the Early Espresso and part of it is on the Wood Texture paper) I used two different types of adhesive.  I put snail adhesive on the section that is on the Early Espresso paper and a dimensional on the section that is over the designer series paper.  You can see in the picture above what area I am talking about.  

I love making easy cards that have a WOW factor to them, and this one definitely has that.

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.

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"

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.

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!

It is CASEing Tuesday!!! I had fun creating this card for this weeks post.  I have used the Waterfront stamp set from the occasions catalog and the Sweet Cupcake stamp set from the annual catalog.  Here is the picture of the card that we used for our inspiration for this weeks projects. 

27072319_10212608460060842_3867039514148694102_n

To make this card you will need the following products:

Crumb Cake Cardstock #120953

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

Very Vanilla Cardstock#101650

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

True Gentleman Designer Series Paper #145593

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

To make the card I first started with stamping the mountains with Chocolate Chip ink.  I stamped the mountains on the sides full strength ink and the middle mountain stamping off first.  I then stamped the water with Dapper Denim ink.  I stamped the first image right under the mountains full strength and then kept stamping without reinking my stamp.  The trees are stamped with the Dapper Denim ink and again I did some full strength and some stamped off. 

To color the sky, I first punched out a 1" circle and light adhered it to the Very Vanilla paper where I wanted the moon to be.  I used the Soft Sky ink all over the area above the mountains.  I then used Dapper Denim, being careful to leave a small area right above the mountains untouched.  The I lightly sponged on Tranquil Tide and finished it off with Night of Navy ink, again very light.  I took off the circle and used the piece of paper that I punched the circle out of to cover up the area around the sun.  I used the Daffodil Delight ink and covered the circle.  

I love when a card comes out the way you have it pictured in your mind.
