Yesterday I had a workshop with 8 wonderful ladies that I met for the first time.  Thank you Roselin for sharing your friends with me and picking me to have your workshop.  It was so much fun!  

I hope everyone has a marvelous Monday and week!

Happy Celebrations

stampin up, Stampin' Up! Happy Celebrations #143012, 2017 Occasions catalog, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking, 3D projects and more go to stampinscrapper.com

Do you need an easy peasy birthday card?  I have the perfect one for you.  This card could be masculine or famine depending on the colors you use.  You could even dress it up more with a ribbon or rhinestones.  

To make this card you will need the following products:

Marina Mist Cardstock #119682

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

Pool Party Cardstock #122924

  • cut at 5 3/8" x 4 1/8"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

I used the Marina Mist and Pool Party to stamp the front of the card. The Happy Celebrations stamp set is a two step stamp set.  You stamp the Marina Mist part first and then Pool Party.  You are finished! Wasn't that fast and easy?

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter.  We had a great time spending the afternoon with the grand Randall's.  Yesterday, I got to see one of my good friends, Lisa, get baptized.  It was such a wonderful event.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you have a marvelous Monday.

I can finally share my display board with you!!!  I had so much creating with the  products from the new 2017-2018 catalog.  It has been hard keeping it quiet, but now I don't have to!!!!  You are going to love the new catalog.  I want everything in it!

I will be showing you all each product individually throughout the next month or so.  

I had such a great time at OnStage.  I am not sure why I haven't gone before, but I know I will be going again.  Here are some pictures from my fun filled weekend.

On Friday while sitting up my display I got to meet Connie Stewart, one of my favorite demonstrators.  She is such a sweetheart!  I got to talk with her for about 20 minutes, which was the best part of my day. On Saturday I was able to get a picture with her.  I am not crazy about the look on my face, but I only got one picture with her, so I will take it.

The 3 MUSKETEERS!!!! Carla, Kim and I hung out together all weekend.  I haven't laughed that hard in a long time.  We had been talking with each other on Facebook and text for a while, so it was nice to finally meet in person.  I can say, I have found 2 very good friends over the week.  They are the best!

Sponged Wetlands Card

stampin up, Stampin' Up! Wetlands #126697, High Tide #143006, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com

I belong to a Facebook group for demonstrators and saw this card on it.  Teresa Howe, a fellow demonstrator, created this card and was so kind to share with all of us.  This is a fun and easy card to make for any of the gentleman in your life.  

I used sponges to put the color on the white piece of paper.  First, I used Old Olive to make the grass area.  You can put this up as high as you would like.  Then I added the Crumb Cake and finished it off with Soft Sky.  I started out lightly with the colors and then added more to darken it more.  You can always add more, but you can't take it off.  

One tip I have is to put your paper on top of a scrap piece of paper. Start your sponging on the scrap paper and then go onto the white piece you are going to use for your card.  Your colors will blend better and you won't have one spot darker compared to the other areas.

I used the birds from the High Tide stamp set and the other items from the Wetlands stamp set in Early Espresso ink.  

To make this card you will need the following products:

Whisper White Thick Cardstock #140272

  • cut at 5 /12" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"

Early Espresso Cardstock #119686

  • cut at 2 3/8" x 5 /12"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut at 2 1/4" x 5 1/2"

I finally finished my craft room!!!!  I can't believe how much natural light I am getting on my stamping table. I love it!  

Here are some pictures.

This is where I do all my stamping and my desk is in the lower right hand corner.

This is the wall I look at when I am sitting at my desk.  I have my monthly calendar, a shadow box to showcase 3D projects and card board to display my cards from one of my classes.    The cards up there now are from my What To Do With Scraps class.  

I hope you have a fabulous Monday and the rest of your week!

High Tide Card

stampin up, Stampin" Up! High Tide #143006, Night of Navy Baker's Twine, 2017 Occasions catalog, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to Stampinscrapper.com

This is a perfect masculine card that you could use for any occasion. On this card I put a sentiment from the stamp set High Tide, but I also made one with the sentiment Happy Birthday.  I have seen so many wonderful cards with this stamp set, I would definitely recommend this set.  

To make this card you will need the following products:

Night of Navy Cardstock #100867

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

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut 2 at 4" x 5 1/4"

The first thing I stamped on this card was the lighthouse.  This is a two step stamp, which means you do one stamp and then line up the second stamp right on top and stamp it.  I love that this stamp set is a photopolymer (you can see through the stamp), so it is real easy to line it up.  

The sand was stamped using the Sahara Sand ink and the water was stamped using the Marina Mist and Pool Party inks.   To get the water right up to the light house I have a little tip for you.  Take a post it note and cover up the lighthouse so that the edge of the post it note is on the edge of the lighthouse.  When you stamp and you go over a little on the lighthouse it is ok, because you are stamping on the post it note, not the lighthouse.  When you are finished just remove the note and you have a perfectly stamped card.  

I stamped a lighthouse on the left bottom corner on the inside of the card and on my envelope.  I wrapped the Night Of Navy Baker's Twine around the top part of the card.  It adds the finishing touch this card needed.  

We have been busy moving things this weekend, getting ready for the plumber to come.  I forgot how much stuff I kept from the girls.  It was fun to bring back all those memories.  

I hope you have a blessed Sunday!

Watercolor In The Meadow

stampin up, Stampin" Up! In the Meadow #140754, Aqua Painters #103954, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com

This is the final card that we made at my Watercolor class.  I wanted to do a masculine card, so I went to Pinterest for inspiration.  I saw a card similar to this one and though it was perfect.   You could use this for birthday, Father's Day, Anniversary or a just because card.  

To make this card you will need the following products:

Old Olive Card Stock #100702

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

Chocolate Chip Card Stock #102128

  • cut at 3 1/2" x 4 3/4"

Watercolor Paper #122959

  • cut at 3 1/4" x 4 1/2"

I started by stamping the two images using Stazon ink.  Then I used Old Olive ink for the hills and Garden Green ink for the grass and trees.  The deer and trunks of the trees were watercolored with Chocolate Chip ink.  I used Sky Blue ink for the sky.  

For your envelope and inside your card you could stamp the trees or the deer, but don't use the aqua painters.  I just stamped them without coloring them.  

At my watercolor class we also played with the new Watercolor Pencils.  These were such a popular item with Stampin' Up! that they ran out of them.  Don't worry though, they will be back.  I will let you know as soon as they are.  

I hope you have enjoyed seeing the cards we made at my class.  You will be seeing more watercoloring in the future from me.  I am in love with it.  I need to keep playing and learning more about it so I can share with all of you.

Have a blessed Sunday!

Masculine Birthday Card using Wetlands

stampin up, Stampin' Up! Wetlands #126697, created by stampin scrapper, for more ideas, cards, gifts, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com

 

Two pieces of paper, one ink and one framelit is all that is needed for this easy masculine card.  I don't know about you, but sometimes I struggle with cards for the men in our lives.   Wetlands is one of my go to stamps when I need a card for a gentleman.  

You will need the following products to make this card:

Basic Black Card Stock #121045

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

Whisper White Card Stock #100730

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

I used the Layering Framelits to cut out the circles.  When I stamped the "Birthday Wishes" (you need to get it close to the goose) I made sure the right hand side of my stamp was in the middle of the neck of the goose.  Then it will fit perfectly.  

I used snail adhesive to attach everything and stamped the wheat stamp on the inside of the card and my envelope.  

I am having my open house today (if the weather cooperates).  I can't wait to share the new catalogs with everyone.  

Thank you for stopping by today!

Happy Stampin!

Lovely As A Tree

stampin up, Stampin' Up Lovely As A Tree #127793, Woodgrain Embossing Folder #127821, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more card and gift ideas go to stampinscrapper.com

We made this card at my Stamp Camp in October and it is an easy peasy card; which is the best!  You can make this card in under 10 minutes.  I know there are times when I have to make a card in a hurry and this would be perfect.  You could even make this more feminine by changing the colors and the stamp set you used.  I think I am going to have to try it. 

I used the Lovely As A Tree stamp set and the Woodgrain Embossing Folder to make this card.  You will also need the following products:

Very Vanilla Card Stock #101650

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

Crumb Cake Card Stock #120953

  • cut at 2" x 5 1/2"

Cherry Cobbler Card Stock #119685

  • cut at 2" x 3 1/2"

Soft Suede Card Stock #115318

  • cut at 2 5/8" x 2 5/8"

I used Snail Adhesive to adhere everything, except the two layers with the tree on it.  I used our Stampin Dimensionals to give it a little dimension.

Have a wonderful Thursday!

Happy Stampin!

Vintage Leaves Baby Wipe Technique

stampin up, Stampin' Up! Vintage Leaves #138802, Stampin' Up! Wetlands #126697, Baby Wipe Technique, designed by Stampin Scrapper, please see more card and gift ideas at stampinscrapper.com

The baby wipe technique is such a fun and pretty technique.  You can get a different look every time you ink your stamp.  I bet you are wondering just what is this technique.  Let me tell you!!!  

You take 4 baby wipes (make sure they are the unscented ones) and put them on top of each other on a paper plate or I use a Standard stamp Cases #119105.  These are the ones that the clear and photopolymer stamp sets come in.  They work perfect.  You are then going to take  ink refills in as many colors as you would like,but I usually don't use more than 4 of them.  On this project I used Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie and Wild Wasabi.  You will put drops of each ink refill on the baby wipes and make sure there are no white areas left.  You want to make sure that you have ink to cover your stamps.  

You will then use the baby wipes as your ink pad.  Look how different the two cards are above.  I used the same baby wipes, the only different is the one on the right was stamped right away and the one on the left I stamped about 30-45 minutes later.  So, the longer you leave the inks on the baby wipes they lighter the image will be once it is stamped. 

To make this card you will need the following products:

Wild Wasabi Card Stock #108641

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

Crushed Curry Card Stock #131199

  • cut at 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" 

Early Espresso Card Stock #119686

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

Whisper White Card Stock #100730

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"
  • cut at 4 1/4" x 8 1/2"  use this to stamp your leaves and cut them out
  • cut at 1 1/2" x 2 1/4"

You will use the Leaflets Framelits to cut out your leaves.  I also stamped one of the leaves in the inside of my card and envelope. I also used the Tangerine Tango ink and sponges to go around the leaves to give them dimension.  

Here are two close ups of the two cards so you can see the difference between the colors.

Which one do you like best?  The lighter or darker one?

Over the weekend Erica and I went with our friends to Disney on Ice. It was a lot of fun and the girls absolutely loved it.  I would recommend anyone who has children if you get a chance to go see it!

Have a fabulous week!

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!
