I was on Pinterest last week looking for some inspiration for some gift card holders and I came across a card with a tag and holder on the front of it.  I thought it was interesting, because I hadn't seen anything like it before.  I can't remember who designed the card I saw, but thank you for sharing it with everyone.   The first thing I had to do was come up with a template on how to make this and the measurements.  Once I figured that out, I had to come up with a design. 

The first one I made, which I forgot to take a picture of, I made for Erica for her birthday.  I had so much fun making it, I thought it would be great to make another one for my Merry Christmas Monday series.  The above picture is the first one I came up with.  Isn't the little reindeer so cute?!  Oh, my goodness, I love him!  He is from the stamp set Seasonal Chums stamp set and has matching framelits, Seasonal Tags. There is also a snowman and a pumpkin in the set too.  

I colored him with the new Stampin' Blends markers, can you see the shading on him?  I used the dark and light Crumb Cake and Cherry Cobbler along with the dark Basic Gray, dark Daffodil Delight and the Bronze markers.  A reminder that when you use the Stampin' Blends markers you have to stamp your images with the Memento Ink.  

To make this project you will need the following products:

Crumb Cake Cardstock #120953

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

Cherry Cobbler Cardstock #119685

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

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

Below are pictures on how to make the tag and holder.

StampinScrapperJoyceWhitman2

You are going to score on the 8 1/4" side at 3 1/2" and then turn your paper to the 3 3/4" side and you will score at 1/2" on each side.  If you look at the second picture you will see how I cut and scored the paper at the same time.  You are going to cut down until you get the to score line (the 3 1/2" line)  and then you are going to score to the end of the paper.  You can see in the picture below what I am talking about.

After you have done your scoring and cutting, don't forget to angle the 1/2" pieces so they fold nicely.  Refer back to the first picture where you need to cut the flaps at an angle.  

 

StampinScrapperJoyceWhitman6

The next step is to mark the section that you just cut the flaps off of at 1 3/8" (this is the center of this end of your paper).  If you look at the picture you can see where I placed the mark.  

 

StampinScrapperJoyceWhitman3

The paper is going to be wider than the slot on the punch, but you can still use it.  You will need to slide the paper in the punch as it is shown in the picture above. Once you have it in the punch make sure your mark at 1 3/8" is in the center of the punch.  See the photo above to see the mark I made.

StampinScrapperJoyceWhitman4

Next, trim off the little tabs that are still on there.

StampinScrapperJoyceWhitman5

Add a strong adhesive, as shown above, I used the Tear and Tape, and burnish (use a bone folder to make a sharp crease on the score lines) and put it together.  Figure out where you want to put it on your card before adhering it.  With this strong of adhesive it is hard to take it off and move it.  

For the background on my card, I used the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder on the Cherry Cobbler piece of paper.  Now, is the fun part, decorate the tag holder as you wish. 

Making the tag is super easy.  Take a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock and cut it at 2 1/2" x 4 1/2".   I used the Scalloped Tag Topper again, so it will match and you will have to slide it in the same way as the Crumb Cake piece.

With this set, the stamps have a front and back and they are attached.  It is designed that way so you can fold it in half and have a cute little tag all at once.  How awesome is that!  I cut mine apart, so I used the back piece to decorate the inside of the card.  For your envelope you could just stamp the front of the reindeer and color it if you wanted to or you could just leave it uncolored.  Either way, it will be beautiful.

Isn't the back side of this deer just as cute as the front.  He is so stinkin' cute!

CoffeeandChatStampinScrapperJoyceWhitman2

Our carpet is finished!!! I love, love, love it!  One of my daycare kids told me it is so squishy.  Compared to our old carpet, that is 18 years old, it is definitely squishy.  LOL  I don't think I have worked that hard physically in a very long time.  It took them four days to finish all of it, but it was so worth it.  I really don't want to move any more furniture for a while.  You don't realize how much stuff you have until you have to move all of it.  Needless to say, there were a lot of trips to drop of things to Goodwill.  

Mr. Wonderful went to Michigan over the weekend to spend some time with Erica.  I know that made her very happy to see her daddy.  I love how she still calls us mommy and daddy.  I really wish I could have gone with him.  I haven't seen her since the beginning of September.  This is the longest we have gone without seeing each other.  We are hoping and praying she will be able to come for a few days at Christmas.  

Emily comes home late on Friday night (well, really Saturday very early in the morning).  We haven't seen her since July and I can't wait.  It is really hard being this far away from our girls.  We are blessed that she will be able to be home for a week and two weeks at Christmas. 

Oh my goodness!  Do not try to type up your blog post when you are very tired.  I have a very busy week this week, so I have been working a lot in my stamping studio this weekend getting prepared for it.  I was working on this blog post late last night and was literally falling asleep while I was typing.  So, I went to bed and finished it this morning.  It is a good thing I went back and reread it.  One section I wrote the same thing three times, three different ways.  Another section I typed what I heard on TV.  It would have been a very interesting and funny blog post if I had posted it.  Note to self, don't work on blog post when you are tired.  LOL  

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you have a blessed week.

Merry Christmas Monday Week #1

 

Merry Christmas Monday, Stampin' Up! Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects, go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

 

Welcome to my Merry Christmas Monday series!  For the next 7 weeks I will be sharing with you a different project made especially for the Christmas season.  I have been having fun already creating for my favorite holiday, Christmas!  I love the crisp air, lights, music, baking, making gifts and spending time with the ones that are dear to me.  

My first project that I am going to share with you is also one of my Splitcoaststampers Creative Crew projects.  Our daughters, Emily and Erica were my inspiration for this project.  We had to create a tag  and a box to put them in or attached to a gift.  I actually did both, the box and gift.   I knew I was going to give wine/sparkling cider  this year as gifts to family and friends and to our girls, Emily and Erica.  So, I went on Pinterest and found a really cute wine bottle wrap and went from there.  The tutorial I followed for this is by Frenchie, who is also a Stampin' Up! demonstrator.  

Here is the final project:

stampin up, Stampin' Up! Merry Little Labels #1444795, Foil Snowflakes #144642, Year of Cheer Speciality Designer Series Paper #144640, 3/8" Metallic-Edge Ribbon #144146, 1/8" Ribbon-Gold #134583, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

This is an easy way to dress up the wine or sparkling cider you are taking to dinner at a friend's house or giving as a gift.  Doesn't it look so much nicer than a plain bottle?  

I started out writing up the directions on how to make this and thought this would be so much easier with a video.  So, I made a video, edited it and was ready to download it to YouTube.  While I was doing this we had very bad thunderstorms, which my computer did not like.  LOL  However, after a very long time, I got it down loaded and ready for you to see.  I have the video at the end of this post. 

To make this project you will need the following products:

For Wine Bottle Cover:

  • cut at 11" x 12" for wine bottle
  • on the 11" side score at 1 3/4", 3 1/2", 5 1/4", 7" , 8 3/4" and 10 1/2"
  • make a little mark at the 7/8", 2 5/8", 4 3/8", 6 1/8", 7 7/8" and 9 5/8"

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.

Father Christmas Tag Card

stampin up, Stampin' Up! Father Christmas stamp set item #142122, Stampin' Up! Hang Your Stocking item #142114, Stampin up Holly embossing folder item #141634, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards and projects go to stampinscrapper.com

When the 2016 Holiday catalog came out this was the first set on my list.  I love this set and plus the fact that it has an old fashion feel.  I know I will be using this set a lot during this holiday season.

The Holly Embossing Folder really adds texture to this card along with the ribbon.  At first I just had the one tag on it, but I knew it needed something more.  The This Christmas Designer Series Paper (DSP) works perfect with the colors of the card. 

To make this card you will need the following products:

Crumb Cake Card Stock #120953

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

Cherry Cobbler Card Stock #119685

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

This Christmas Designer Series Paper #141628

  • cut at 2" x 4 1/4" ***

*** you are going to want to cut these two pieces just a hair under 2" to fit into the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. 

I went around the Crumb Cake tag with a sponge and Crumb Cake ink.  Tie /8" burlap ribbon in a knot and adhere with a glue dot. 

One tip I have for you is when you punch the tag with the This Christmas DSP, either punch 3 pieces together of the paper or add a piece of cardstock with DSP paper.  The DSP is a thinner paper and sometimes when you punch it alone it doesn't punch nice. 

Don't forget to sign up for my Stampin Scrappper Weekly Tips and Techniques Newsletter.  You can sign up HERE.

You don't want to miss out on my next issue!  Just a reminder, you have to sign up in order to receive me newsletter, you will not automatically receive it if you are on my email list. 

Happy Stampin!

Black and White Thank You

                     IMG_1480

 

I wanted to give Emily's mentor teacher, Julie, a thank you card and for everything she has done for Emily.  Julie is a wonderful teacher, mentor and above all a terrific friend to Emily.    Julie's favorite drink is coffee, a women after my own heart, of course that had to be the theme of her gift.  She also loves the colors black, white and lime green.  I didn't have any lime green so I used cucumber crush card stock instead.  

There is nothing like seeing someone's expression when they see your creations for the first time.  I love making people happy with the items I make!

I used a retired stamp set, Perfect Blend, to make this card and tag, but you could use A Nice Cuppa stamp set if you would like.  I have to say I love the Perfect Blend stamp set and it will be in my collection for a long time.  

To make the card I used the following materials:

Basic Black Card Stock #121045

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
  • scrap pieces to stamp the coffee cups with white craft ink and the scallop circle

Whisper White Card Stock #100730

  • cut 2 at 4" x 5 1/4"
  • scrap piece to stamp the top part of the stamp (the lid) and the circle 

Scrap pieces of any Designer Series Paper to add to the coffee cup.  

To make the different pieces of the coffee cup you are going to stamp the whole image with white craft ink on basic black card stock.  Then with black ink you will stamp the lid part on white paper and fussy cut it out.  For the designer series paper section you will use black ink and stamp on your the dsp paper and fussy cut.  I then used the pieces you just cut and adhered them to the black base.  

To make the splatter marks on the card I used the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set.  Who doesn't love this stamp set?!  You can do so many neat things with it.  The saying in the corner is also from the Perfect Blend Stamp Set.  

I know I used some retired products to make this card and tag, but I wanted to give you some inspiration and ideas for you to make your own designs.  If you have a stamp set that you absolutely love, keep it, use it and enjoy it!!  For me this is one of those sets.

The scalloped circle punch that I used is on the retirement list, so if you would like it, get it soon as it will no longer be available after May 31, 2016 or while supplies last.  

Here are close ups of the card and the tag I put on the bag.  

                          IMG_1481

 

                                                    IMG_1482

I will show you tomorrow the gift card holder I made to match the card and tag.  

Thank you for stopping by today!

Happy Stampin!

Garden in Bloom Tag Card

IMG_1426

 

This picture does not show how bright and cheery this card really is.  I used Daffodil Delight and Melon Mambo as the main colors to make it bright and spring like!  After all the nasty weather we have been having I figured it was time to get some sunshine into our day!!!!

For April's Stamp Camp I used only stamp sets that are in the Annual Catalog. I haven't really been using them as I was concentrating on Sale-A-Bration and the Occasions catalog.  I thought they were a little lonely just sitting on the shelf,  I needed to show them a little love.  LOL  

When I was trying to decide what stamp set to use, this one just kind of jumped out at me.  I the flower stamp sets and have been into the watercolor design lately.  I also like watercolor, because if you make a mistake it is less noticeable.  The stamp sets I used were Garden in Bloom and Wetlands.  

Here are the measurements for you to make the card if  you wish:

Daffodil Delight Card Stock #119683

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

Melon Mambo Card Stock #115320

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"
  • scrap for punching out scallop oval

Whisper White Card Stock #100730

  • Cut at 4" x 5 1/4" - for the inside of the card
  • 4 1/2" x just under 2" - for the tag
  • scrap for the saying 

This card is a pretty easy card to make.  I gave the melon mambo a little bit of texture by embossing it with the modern mosaic embossing folder.  It needed a little something to finish off the card.   You could use any embossing folder you have.  

I popped up the tag with stampin' dimensionals.  I made sure I put one under the hole on the top to help hold the ribbon in place.  I also used a glue dot to help secure the ribbon.  I used the flower to stamp on the inside of my card and on my envelope.  Here is a picture of it.

I hope this card brings a little bit of sunshine into your day today.  Thank you for stopping by!

Happy Stampin!

Baby Shower Card and Gift Card Holder

IMG_1328

Yesterday I had the honor of attending a baby/adoption shower for my friend Amanda.  Nathan, Amanda and their 3 children are adopting a beautiful girl, Joanna, from China.  We are all so excited for them and wanted to show them how much they are loved.  

I had so much fun making the card, gift card holder and tag for the bag.  I got my idea for the card from another demonstrator Debbie Henderson and the matchbox gift card holder from Mary Fish.  I love how Stampin' Up! demonstrator share their ideas.  You can learn so much from others.  

To make all three items I used the stamp set Something For Baby #134030, Teeny Tiny Wishes #127802 and Hardwood #133035.  The colors I used were Tip Top Taupe, Mint Macaron, Pink Pirouette and So Saffron.  I also used the Baby's First Framelits #133735.  

 

IMG_1332

I got finished the card and gift card holder and realized I forgot to buy a bag to put them in, of course it was right before the shower.  I went looking in my stash of gift bags and found this cute little bag that was the same color as the card.  How lucky was that!!!!  The scallops on the bottom of the tag were made with a retired border punch.  

IMG_1331

This is the front of the gift card holder.  I will definitely be making more of these, as you can decorate it for any occasion.  

IMG_1333

 The card fits perfectly inside.  I couldn't have found a better design on the gift card as their  little one is a year old.
