Thank You Cards

SCS Creative Crew October 2017 Project #2

StampinUpJarofLoveMerryCafeStampinScrapperJoyceWhitman

For this card we had a picture we had to look at to get inspiration for our project.  I will be honest, this one took me a while to figure out what I wanted to do.  I would look at the picture, go look at my paper, go back to the picture and again go back to my paper.  Then one night after one of my classes my best friend, Robin, and I were talking and I had the Painted Autumn DSP laying on the table.  We both looked at each other and thought I wonder if this paper would work.  I looked on the back of the package and it didn't say it coordinated with any of the grays that Stampin' Up! has.  The dark color is Early Espresso in the paper.  

So, I got out a piece of the Basic Gray (which I used) and the Smoky Slate and laid them on top of the designer series paper.  Oh my goodness, the Basic Gray was perfect!  It was like a light bulb went off and I started getting ideas.  The theme this month was comfy and cozy and to me that describes fall.  You will notice that all of my projects this month have a fall theme to them.  

Here is the picture that we used for inspiration.

Did you notice the green plant on the top right corner?  That is where I pulled in the green along with the Cajun Craze, Basic Gray and Very Vanilla.  When I was looking at the picture on my phone, the browns looked like gray, but looking at it bigger here, there is definitely brown in the flooring and the table.  The walls though and some of the pillows look a little gray to me.  How about you?

To make this project you will need the following:

Very Vanilla Thick Cardstock #144237

  • cut at 5 /12" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
  • cut at 1 1/2" x 2 1/2"  for the sentiment
  • cut at 1 1/2" x 2 3/4" for the lids of the cups
  • cut at 2" x 2" for the leaf

Cajun Craze Cardstock #119684

  • cut at 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"
  • cut at 3" x 4 3/4" for the two cups
  • cut at 2" x 2" for the leaf

Garden Green Cardstock #102584

  • cut at 2" x 2" for the leaf
  • scraps for the hearts

Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper #144613

  • cut at 2" x 3 3/4"

Did you notice the stamping on the Basic Gray piece of paper?  I did that with a stamp from the Jar of Love using the Smoky Slate ink, but I stamped it off first.  I wanted a real light image since it was for a background.

The only thing that is popped on this card is the sentiment.  I used the 1/2" Gingham Ribbon in Smoky Slate to wrap around the card to give a finished look.

Coffee Cafe

stampin up, Stampin' Up! Coffee Cafe stamp set #143677, Coffee Break Designer Series Paper #144155, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects, go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

I always tell my customers if there is a card you would like to make, please let me know.  I enjoy seeing what their style is and making it part of one of our classes.  Sometimes it is a card that I wouldn't typically make, but I love it anyway.  What a great way to learn new styles, techniques and ideas.  One of my customers and my best friend, Robin, sent the above card to me.  She had seen it on Pinterest and fell in love with it.  The person who originally created this card did not put their name on it, so I don't know who to give credit to.  Thank you whoever you are and for sharing such an adorable card with us.  It had a coffee cup on the front, so of course, I fell in love with it!  The best part is, it is a cute card and easy to make.

To make this card you will need the following products:

Soft Sky Cardstock #131203

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

Early Espresso Cardstock #119686

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

Crumb Cake Cardstock #120953

  • cut at 2 1/4" x 3" 

Soft Suede Cardstock #115318

  • cut at 1 1/2" x 2"

Garden Green Cardstock #102584

  • a piece of scrap for the little stopper on the top of the cup

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"
  • scraps for the lid and beans

Coffee Break Designers Series Paper #144155

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

I used the coordinating Coffee Cup framelits that matched this stamp set to cut out everything.  It even has a die to make the band that goes around the cup with the lines in it.  It makes life so much easier when things coordinate.  I stamped the coffee beans on the inside of the card and on the envelope.  

The ribbon is the 3/8" Classic Weave Ribbon in Soft Sky and I used 10 inches.  

Stampin' Up! has some exciting news coming up in October that you are not going to want to miss!  I will have all the details for you on Monday, October 2nd along with my first project from the SplitcoastStampers Creative Crew projects for October.  I have been having a lot of fun working on my projects, even though they have been a little bit of a struggle for me.  I have been going out of my comfort zone on some of these projects, which is good.  

Have a great Wednesday and thank you for stopping by today!

SCS Creative Crew September 2017 Project #1

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest stamp set #144783, Burlap Background Stamp #143982, Jute Twine #144625, Wink of Stella #141897, designed by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects, go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

Do you remember me telling you I was asked to be on the SplitcoastStampers Creative Crew?  This was my first month to participate and our theme was fall.  I was so excited when I heard our theme.  Fall is one of my favorite times of the year.  

We had to create a card and then do a stepped up card by adding embellishments, layers or whatever you wanted to make it better.  The card on the left is my original card and to step it up I added our new Jute Twine and Wink of Stella on the flower on the card on the right.

To make this card you will need the following products:

Early Espresso Cardstock #119686

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

Very Vanilla Cardstock #101650

  • cut 2 at 4" x 5 1/4"

Did you notice the Burlap Background stamp?  I just got this and I am in love with it.  For this card I used the Crumb Cake ink.  I think you will be seeing this stamp a lot this fall.  I stamped the flower on Very Vanilla cardstock with Daffodil Delight ink first, then Crushed Curry. The center was stamped with Early Espresso  ink and then fussy cut the flower.  The leaves were stamped with Pear Pizzazz and Garden Green ink and punched out with the new Leaf Punch.   

To create this flower there is 3 different stamps and sometimes they are kinda hard to line up.  Below is a quick video on how to line up your stamps so your flower is perfect every time.  

 

I will be posting the other 4 projects in my next 4 post.   On Wednesday I will be showing you my inspiration piece, Friday my second Fall Friday project and on next Monday I will be showing you my technique card.  

Thank you for stopping by today and have a Happy Labor Day!

Open House Make and Takes

 

Stampin up, Stampin' Up Daisy Delight #143669, Happy Birthday Gorgeous #143662, Daisy Punch #143713, Pretty Label Punch #143715, Stitched Shaped Framelits #145372, Delightful Daisy DSP #144137, Fresh Florals DSP #144131, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to Stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

Happy Hump Day!  Where has this week gone?  Somewhere in this week I have lost a day already and it is only Wednesday.  My mom always told me the older you get the faster time goes.  Boy, was she right!  I hate to see how fast time goes in 20 years.  

For my make and takes at my open house, I wanted super simple cards but they needed to highlight some of our new products.  These are the two cards that I created.  

The card on the left in the picture above is featuring the Delightful Daisy stamp set and punch.  This is the punch that has been so popular that we haven't been able to order it, because they ran out.  I knew this set would be a hit, but I didn't think it would be this big of one and neither did Stampin' Up!  They had 10,000 of them in stock when preorder started for the demonstrators.  Well, we loved it so much that we ordered 7,200 of them in just the first two weeks!!! That is amazing.  Although, this is a good problem to have - people want your product so much you sell out.  This doesn't surprise me at all with this catalog.  I think it is the best one yet. Hopefully, it will be in stock next week!

The card on the right is highlighting the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set and I paired it with the Pretty Label Punch (this also has a coordinating stamp set), the Stitched Shaped Framelits and the 1/2" Finely Woven Ribbon in the Berry Burst color.

On both of the cards I wanted to also use some of our beautiful, and I mean beautiful designer series paper.  Wow, is all I can say about the papers in this catalog.  I didn't know which one to create with first! On the daisy card I used the paper, Delightful Daisy DSP, that coordinates with the Daisy Delight stamp set and Daisy Punch.  Don't you love how everything goes together!  

The Happy Birthday card has the new Fresh Florals DSP Stack.  Does this paper look familiar?  This same design of paper was in our last annual catalog and was such a big hit that Stampin' Up! brought it back in our 2017-2019 In Colors.  

Here are the cards individually so you can see them better.  I have the directions under each of the cards.

1/2" Finely Woven Ribbon in Berry Burst #144133

Each of these cards have a layout that you can do so much with.  Just by changing the colors and designer series paper you use, you could have total different looking cards.  These would be a great way to use up scraps of designer series paper.  

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

Tranquil Tulips

stampin up, Stampin' Up! Tranquil Tulips #143767, 1/2" Finely Woven Ribbon-Powder Pink #144134, desgined by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

Have you seen the new hostess stamp set called Tranquil Tulips?  This was one of my top ten picks for the new catalog.  If you missed this post click HERE to see it.   There are so many color combinations you could do with this stamp set and so many different combinations with the flowers. 

One of the first things I do when I am trying to decide if I want to purchase a stamp set is to see how many cards can I make off the top of my head.  If I can't make 3 then I usually don't by it.  Now, there have definitely been excepting, like I am in total love with the set or I have the perfect card in mind for a particular occasion.  When I saw this set, I knew the possibilities were endless.

To make this card you will need the following products:

Berry Burst Cardstock #144243

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

Powder Pink Cardstock #144244

  • cut at 3 3/4" x 5"

Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock #144245

  • cut at 3 3/4" x 5"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut at 2 1/2" x 4 1/2"
  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4" this is for the inside of the card

There is a stamp in this set that has 3 stems connected and that is what I used for this card.  The flowers are created with 2 steps and then you add the little lines.  I stamped the first layer of the flowers with Powder Pink Ink and then with Berry Burst.  To make the little lines (I don't know the proper term for them) I used Early Espresso ink. 

The leaves are created with 2 of the stamps in the set in Lemon Lime Twist ink.  I stamped a flower on the inside of the card along with my envelope.  To finish off the card I used our beautiful 1/2" Finely Woven Ribbon in Powder Pink and wrapped it around the top two layers.  Then I added just a little bit of Wink of Stella on the Berry Burst section of the flowers.  You can see it better in the picture below.

We are having a wonderful time in Traverse City seeing all of my family.  We got into town on Wednesday afternoon and spent time with my mom and sister.  It was so good to see them.  You don't realize how much you miss someone until you see them again.  My mom looks fabulous.  Last year, when I came to see her, she had just had hip replacement surgery.  She was in a rehabilitation center, which was very hard to see.  I know it wasn't anything serious, but to see your mom in a hospital bed is a little unnerving.  I hope I don't ever see that again. 

Yesterday, we went to one of my favorite places here, Wilson's Antique's.  They have polish pottery, which I collect, so of course I had to get 3 more pieces.  My daughters were so gracious and bought me two of them.  They're the best!  They are all wrapped up for travel home, but when I get home I will take pictures and share with you. 

Last night everyone, except one of my brothers and my niece, were able to join us for dinner.  I forgot to take pictures.  I am so bad at that lately.  I did get a picture of my brother who is 6'6" tall next to me.  LOL  I still feel so short when I am around him.  My other brother is 6'3".  We always say they took all the height and left none for us girls.  LOL 

I am off to enjoy more time with my family.  I hope everyone has a fantastic day!

Thank you card using retired products

stampin up, Stampin' Up Tin of Cards #138946, Jar of Love #141587, In Color Designer Series Paper stacks #141408, Lace Doilies #142793, Stitched Shapes Framelits #145372, Everyday Jars Framelits #141490, Banner Framelits #132173, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

Have you ever participated in a swap?  Some of you may be wondering what is a swap?  A swap is where you make cards, or cardnfronts, for everyone that is participating.  So if there is 12 people  involved, you will make 12 cards of the same design.  In return you will get 12 cards, 11 different and one of your own.  This is a great way to get ideas for cards and to use either for classes, or to give to someone.  The above card was originally created by Connie Ingram, another demonstrator, from Colorado.  

I changed a color on the card, but overall the design is hers.  Isn't lovely.  I really like how it turned out and it showcases the Tin of Cards stamp set, Banner framelits, Lace Doilies and the 2016-2018 Designer Paper Stack, all which are retiring.  The silver bow is a retired product from a couple of years ago.  

To make this card you will need the following products:

Dapper Denim Cardstock #141414

  • cut at 4 1/4" x 11" score at 5 1/2"
  • cut at 2 3/4" x 5 1/4"

Daffodil Delight Cardstock #119683

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut at 3 1/4" x 5 1/4"
  • cut at 2 1/4" x 2 1/4"
  • scraps for flower and leaves

2016-2018 In Color Designer Series Paper Stacks #141408

  • cut at 3 1/2" x 5 1/4"

I have found to make the white banner frame easiest,  put the two banner framelits on at the same time.  Center the smaller one inside of the larger framelit.  Run it through your big shot at the same time. See picture below.

The flower and circle with sentiment on it are the only two things I used dimensionals on.  The rest of the layers were attached with snail adhesive.

When we went to Disney one time, we have gone multiple times - we love Disney, we decided to take pictures of all of our food.  I scrapbook vacations and we didn't want this one to be anything like all the others.  So, now we take pictures of our food all the time.  I know it's crazy.  

So, of course, when I was in Minneapolis, I took pictures.  I have to say, I had some of the best food ever there.  On Friday, we were starved by the time all of us got to the hotel.  So we had found on the internet a Mexican restaurant called Salsa a La Salsa not far from our hotel.  Oh My Goodness!!!!!  It was the best Mexican food I have ever had.  Here is a picture of my fajitas.

IMG_8360

I am dreaming of this food as I am typing up this blog post.  Yummy!

IMG_8390

On Friday night we were busy working on Carla's swaps, so we just ordered pizza.  We found a place that delivered, and had gluten free pizzas.  The one in the above picture is mashed potatoes, broccoli, bacon and tomatoes.  I am weird and I don't care for pizza with the red sauce.  I will eat it, but I am not crazy about it.

On Saturday night after the conference a bunch of us went to the Newsroom Restaurant for dinner.  Again, we had the best food.  I asked the server what their desserts were, so I knew what to order for dinner.  She said, "why not have dessert first?".  Sounded good to Carla and I, so that is exactly what we did.  I had the white chocolate creme burlee and again, Oh My Goodness!  I am going to have to do that more often, dessert first.  

IMG_8500

Doesn't that just look delicious!  I want to go back to Minneapolis and take Mark to all the wonderful places we went to eat.  I think he would love it.  Maybe it will be time for a road trip soon!

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope everyone has a fabulous Friday and a wonderful weekend.

I used one of the stamps from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set with the Peekaboo Peach ink.  I adhered the banners  with snail adhesive. The popsicles and Happiest Birthday were attached with Stampin Dimensionals.  I added the 3/8" Peekaboo Peach Ruched Ribbon around the top of the whisper white paper.

I added Wink of Stella on the stamped images on the popsicles.  

Reminder:  tomorrow the retirement list comes out for the 2016-2017 Annual Catalog and the 2017 Occasions Catalog.  If you want any of the 2015-2017 In Colors (Cucumber Crush, Delightful Dijon, Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe and Watermelon Wonder) I would order them today.  When the list comes out, anything associated with the in colors will sell out sometimes within an hour.

Blooms & Bliss Collar Fold Card

stampin up, Stampin' Up Tin of Cards stamp set #138946, Blooms and Bliss Designer Series Paper #141654, Botanical Builder Framelits #140625, designed by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

Isn't this a fun creative fold card?  This fold is called Collar Fold or Peekaboo Pull Back Fold (I have found it called both names on Pinterest).  We made this card in my Creative Fold card class last month.   This card is actually quite easy to make.

You will need the following products:

Island Indigo Cardstock #122923

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

Mint Macaron Cardstock #138337

  • cut at 2 1/4" x 2 1/4"

Sahara Sand Cardstock #121043

  • cut at 1 1/2" x 2 1/2"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4" for the inside of the card
  • cut at 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" for the front of the card

Blooms and Bliss Designer Series Paper #141654

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4" 

To make the folds in the designer series paper you will line up the 5 1/4" side at the 2 5/8" mark on your trimmer.  Cut down to the 1 1/2" mark, then take the corner of where you just cut and fold it back.  

Make sure you have a point at the corners of your paper, this will make a crisp fold when you crease it.  Use your bone folder to make a crisp fold.  I taped down the flaps so they would lie down flat, but that is up to you.  I added Wink of Stella to the center of the Island Indigo flower.

Have a  wonderful Tuesday!

So Very Much Card

stampin up, Stampin' Up! So Very Much, 2017 Sale-A-Bration, Gold embossing powder #109129, designed by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

So Very Much is another great stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration 2017 brochure.  There is two things that I like about this stamp set. First, I really like the font and second, the size of the stamp.  You can make so many fast and easy cards with it.  This card took less than 10 minutes to make.  You could make it even faster if you only stamped the images and didn't emboss it.  I tried to take another picture for you so you could see the gold embossing powder I used on the stamped images.

To make this card you will need the following products:

Watermelon Wonder Cardstock # 138334

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

Very Vanilla Cardstock #101650

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

Falling In Love DSP #142788

  • cut at 4" x 3 1/2"

I used the Lace Doilies in the Occasions 2017 catalog to add to this card.  One thing great about these doilies is they are two sided, one side with Whisper White and the other with Very Vanilla.  I cut the doily in half, that way you can use it on another card.  

To get the placing on the doily in the center (my OCD was coming out here LOL), I took the card base and put it in the corner of my grid paper.  I then used one of the points and lined it up on the 2 1/8 line (that is the center of the card front).  

I stamped the image and the butterfly from the Grateful Bunch stamp set with VersaMark ink and used Gold Embossing Powder.  If you didn't want to emboss, you could use Early Espresso ink for your stamped images.  

Thank you Mary Ann Rossiter for your inspiration for this card.  

I hope you have a fabulous week!
