Welcome to our Stamp 'N Hop blog hop!  This month our theme is masculine projects.  You have just come from Vicky Wright's post, isn't her project beautiful!  

The other day I was in the mood to color, so I went through my stamp sets and picked out a couple to use.  I didn't have any particular style in mind, I just wanted to color.  I colored some other images, but I kept looking at this one from the Heartland stamp set.  This barn reminds me so much of the farm where I grew up.  Since our theme was masculine, I thought of my dad right away.  He would have loved this card.  

When I first started designing the card, I had just the black cardstock over the image, but it was missing something, I just didn't know what.  I didn't want to use an embossing folder, I wanted something different.  I was looking at my designer paper, seeing if I could get any ideas there, and that is when I saw the Wood Textures paper.  Once I found the paper, then I had to decide which one to use.  There were so many that would have worked, but I like how this one has some brown, black and gray colors in it.  I have all of those colors in the image, so it was the perfect one to use.  I love how it makes the barn image really stand out.

I used our Watercolor Pencils with the Blending Pens to color the image.  Remember, when you use watercolors you need to Stazon ink when you stamp your images.  Otherwise, your stamped images will bleed into your coloring.  

For the Happy Birthday sentiment I used the Sunshine Sayings stamp set and stamped it with Real Red ink on Crumb Cake cardstock.  I cut it out using the Layering Oval Framelits.

Rooted In Nature and Flourishing Phrases CT#155

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Rooted In Nature stamp set #146482, Flourishing Phrases stamp set #141534, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinsraper.com, Joyce Whitman

I had to make another sympathy card for one of my aunts as my uncle passed away unexpectedly.  I don't like having to make these type of cards,  I don't think anyone does, but when I do I try to make them as a reflection of the person who passed.  My aunt and uncle were suppose to go spend the weekend at the campground with all of their family, but God had different plans for them.   They spent the weekend together, just not in the place they thought they would.  

For this card I used the Rooted in Nature stamp set and used the sentiment in the Flourishing Phrases stamp set.  As I was making this card, I kept thinking of my uncles smile and laugh.  I will always remember that about him.  Great memories!

Here is my inspiration card for this weeks CASEing Tuesday

34199907_10213552857790195_6254417666623143936_n

The card I made this week is an easy design that you could make for any occasion. 

To make this card you will need the following products:

Cardstock:

Crumb Cake

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"

Very Vanilla

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

To make the trees I used 3 of our  Stampin Write Markers.  I first inked the trees with the Shaded Spruce marker and then dabbed the tip of the Mossy Meadow marker randomly on top of the Shaded Spruce ink.  The trunks of the trees were colored with the Early Espresso marker.  A tip I have for you is when you use markers to color your stamps, make sure you huff on your stamp before you stamp your image on your paper.  You need to make sure your ink hasn't dried on your stamp as it takes longer to color them with markers than an ink pad. 

On the Crumb Cake card base I used Crumb Cake ink to stamp the leaf images.  I was trying to figure out what to use to make the grass on the bottom and then remembered there was a grass stamp in the Enjoy Life stamp set.  I used the Shaded Spruce ink to stamp the grass.  To decorate my envelope I stamped one of the trees on the bottom left hand corner.

Have a great day and thank you for stopping by!

Itty Bitty Greetings with Rooted In Nature

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set #146667, Rooted In Nature stamp set #146482, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects, go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

Tonight and tomorrow night I have my June Stamp Camps and this is one of the cards we will be making.  Each month I pick a stamp set and teach on how you can use them 3 different ways.  This month I am featuring the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set.  I did it a little different than usual because I wanted to show how you can use the sentiments in this stamp set with any stamp set you own.  It doesn't have to be a new one, it can be one you have had for many years.  

On this card I used the Rooted In Nature stamp set. as I thought it was perfect for the masculine birthday card I wanted,  with the colors of Crumb Cake and Mossy Meadow.  This is a very easy card that you could use so many different stamp sets with the 32 different sentiments.  Yes, you read that correct.  There are 32 different sentiments in the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set!  Wow! That is so awesome!

To make this card you will need the following products:

Cardstock:

Mossy Meadow

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

Crumb Cake

  • cut at 2 7/8" x 3 1/4"
  • cut at 2 3/8" x 4 1/8"
  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

I only used two ink colors on this card Mossy Meadow and Crumb Cake. I stamped the base of my card, the top layer and the sentiments with Mossy Meadow ink on the leaf stamp.  For the wood image I lightly inked the stamp and then stamped it.   If you put too much ink on the stamp it will come out a little too dark, but if you stamp off, it is too light.

All layers are adhered with Snail Adhesive, except the top layer which is adhered with Stampin Dimensionals.  I wanted  to give this layer a little bit of a lift off of the card.  On the inside of the card and the envelope I stamped a leaf image in Mossy Meadow ink.

I think all of you know that we are going to be going to Disney with the grandrandall's in July, if not, we are going to Disney with the grandrandall's in July!  YAY!  We can't wait, we are getting so excited!  The last time we went we had a Minnie Mouse who would show up everyday doing silly things to help us get excited about Disney.  It is like the Elf on the Shelf, but with a Minnie Mouse.   Minnie has decided to come and visit us again this time.  

Yesterday, she made arrived while we were downstairs for nap time.  Here is a picture of what Minnie was doing.

The kids were so funny.  They couldn't figure out how Minnie got in our house when they were sleeping.  They tried to say I did it, but I was with them the whole time.  Then they said Emily did it, but Emily took a nap too.  The only thing is Emily only slept for a little bit because she was busy making the notes.  LOL  We didn't lie, Emily took a nap.  

I wonder where Minnie is going to be tomorrow?  You can follow the Minnie countdown on my Instagram - Stampin_Scrapper and Facebook page, Stampin Scrapper, if you are a customer my Stampin Scrapper VIP page and my personal page Joyce Whitman.  

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

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. 

34396153_10213552404018851_1789882222803681280_n

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.

StampinUpOneSheetWonderClassNaturesPoemDesignerSeriesPaperClassStampinScrapperJoyceWhitman

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.  

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Rooted In Nature stamp set #146482, Layering Square Framelits # 141708, Leaves Trinkets #146343, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects, go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

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.  

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I added Celebrate to my envelope in the bottom left hand corner.  Shelli (co-founder of Stampin Up!) always says, don't send out a naked envelope.  

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you have a great day!
