Merry Christmas Monday! I have an easy project for you featuring chocolates that I purchased at a wonderful coffee shop in our town called Winan's Chocolates and Coffees.

StampinUpMiniPaperPumpkinBoxMerryChristmasMonday2021Week5StampinScrapperJoyceWhitman2

When Emily and Jeff were here for Thanksgiving, we went there to get coffee, of course, and I saw these adorable chocolates. Immediately, I thought I have to make a box to put them in! I went home and created a box using the mini pizza boxes. Then I realized that they were retired. GRRR. So, I quickly created this box last night using the Gingerbread and Peppermint designer series paper.

For more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce WhitmanOne thing I learned making the box, is that using the Gingerbread dies to cut out the ornaments from a piece of the designer series paper, makes this project so fast and easy. 

To make this project you will need the following paper.  For a complete list of all the products I used, please see the end of this post.

Cardstock:

Old Olive

  • cut 2 at 3 5/8" x 5 3/8"

Gingerbread & Peppermint Designer Series Paper

  • cut 2 at 3 3/8" x 5 1/8"

I added the silver trim from the Simply Elegant Trim from the Stampin' Up! annual catalog to complete the look of ornaments. I didn't add a sentiment to this project this time. I really like the simplicity of just the ornaments.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving! As I am sitting here typing up this blog post, I am reminded of how blessed I am to have all of you as a part of my life.
 
One thing that I have learned this year, is that you have to cherish the people in your life and let them know that you love and care about them.
 
I pray all of you are able to be with your friends and family and get to eat a lot of pie!
 
Have a blessed day!
 
Happy Stampin!

When you score the designer series paper, don't forget to put a shim (I used a small piece of Basic White Thick cardstock). This will give you the little bit of room you will need for the top to fit on the bottom of the box perfectly. One tip I have for you is that when you go to put the top of the box together, only make one end of the box. Then slide the top on the bottom of the box and make the other end. This will make sure that your top will fit perfectly every time.

I stamped the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in either Mossy Meadow, Pear Pizzazz or Real Red ink. I tied each box with the Real Red Mini Ruffled Ribbon and then added either Basic Jewel Rhinestones or Red Rhinestones.

I have a beautiful sampler to share with you today. I can't take credit for this wonderful project.  My friend, Susi Brunk, created  this sampler and I fell in love with it. Susi was so kind to let me copy her project and make one for myself.  I asked her if it was alright for me to share it with all of you and she said "yes!"

I put it in a white picture frame that I had. I have it sitting in my craft room on a shelf. Every time I look at it I think of Susi. The picture of it in the frame is not the best as I had to take pictures multiple times to get a decent picture of it. Between the glass on frame and the shiny foil paper, it was hard to get a good picture. I was trying it to look as good in the pictures as it does in person.

Susi used the fabulous Whimsy & Wonder suite in the Stampin' Up! holiday catalog. I love the designer series paper in this suite. For some of the squares she used the Christmas Tree dies, others she used the designer series paper to shine. Then on two of them she used the Wintry embossing folders. For embellishments Susie used the Polished Pink Open Weave ribbon and Blue Adhesive Backed Gems. 

Thank you so much Susi for sharing your gorgeous project with all of us! I love it!

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you have a wonderful Monday and a great week!

It's Merry Christmas Monday! Today I have a Christmas card that I made using the Merry Snowflakes stamp set along with the Wintry embossing folder from the Stampin' Up! holiday catalog. On Saturday, we had our team meeting and I demonstrated different ways to use the Stampin' Blending Brushes. I love our blending brushes, they are so much fun to use. They are so soft and easy to handle.

To create the look on my card, I used the blending brush to add ink to the Wintry embossing folder. We want to put the ink on the side that has the Stampin' Up! logo. I then ran it through the Stampin' Up! Cut & Emboss machine. You get this beautiful embossed and inked piece of paper that is so beautiful. Since there snowflakes on this, I wanted to make them sparkle so, I added Wink of Stella to the whole image.

This is a close up picture so you can see the embossed image better and kinda see the sparkle. It was hard trying to get the camera to capture the sparkle this time. I stamped the image with the Night of Navy ink and then cut it out using the Tasteful Labels dies.

For the bow on the card, I used the Glittered Organdy ribbon and a Night of Navy ribbon that I thought was still in the annual catalog, but realized when I went to look up the name of the ribbon, that it was discontinued. I am going to have to go through and double check all of my ribbon and make sure that I have only current ones in my holder.

Welcome to my Merry Christmas Monday series! I am so excited about my first project that I have to share with all of you. It is called an accordion fold card. We made a smaller version of this card in my creative fold class last week. It was a big hit!

When I started this project I wanted to use a stamp set I hadn't used before. I looked at my stamps and kept going back to Tidings & Trimmings, so that is what I used. This was one of my first stamp sets I bought for the holiday season, but kept putting it off to the side. I have a feeling you are going to be seeing this stamp set more.

The above picture is of the front of the card that I made using the Stitched So Sweetly dies, Christmas Tidings dies, the beautiful Tidings of Christmas designer series paper and Champagne rhinestones.

For the panel on the left hand side I used the beautiful Merriest Frames Hybrid embossing folder. What is unique about this embossing folder is that it comes with dies! Guess what else is so awesome?! You can cut and emboss at the same time!!! That is how I made the Evening Evergreen layer. The flowers were cut out using the dies that are also included with this embossing folder.

For this panel I used the Christmas Trimmings dies and Copper Foil Sheets. I do have a tip for you if you use these dies. For the intricate dies (copper stars), I highly recommend that you use the Adhesive Sheets. It makes it so easy to adhere them to the solid stars.

On the back of the card I put this so you would have a place to write. I embellished it with Holly cut from the Christmas Trimmings dies and used Red Rhinestones for the berries.

This is what the card looks like when it is folded up and bow is tied. I used the gorgeous Evening Evergreen Chevron ribbon from the annual catalog.

This is definitely a card that you could use as a decoration in your home. I wanted to make a box to put this in, as I don't think it would fit in any envelope, but with Halloween yesterday and other commitments, I didn't get a chance to make it.

Fall Friday 2021 Week 7 - Celebrate Sunflowers

This week for my Fall Friday project, I have a card that I made using two different techniques. The first technique I used was the spotlight technique. For this technique you only color the stamped image that is on the top piece of the white cardstock.

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up!, Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set. spotlight technique, masking technique, Stampin Blends, Sunflowers dies, Fall Friday 2021 Week #7, created by Stampin Scrapper. For more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce WhitmanTo do this technique, you first put the small piece of white cardstock on top of the larger piece using repositionable tape (or you can use Stampin' Seal and rub it on your pants a couple of times so it picks up the lint from them so it is less sticky). I then used Memento ink to stamp the images and colored them in using Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Soft Suede Stampin' Blends. You can see around the edges that the images didn't stamp perfectly and that is alright. I will be adding a piece of black cardstock as a mat to the small piece of white cardstock that will cover it up.

The second technique I used was the masking technique. I needed to use this technique so I could add the leaves to my sunflowers. The first thing you need to do is cut out the shape of the image you need to cover up. I was so happy when I realized that in the Sunflowers dies, there was a die that cut perfectly around the sunflower. You need to use copy paper to cut out the image as cardstock is too thick and that will cause you not to get a nice image around the edges.

You will want to use the repositionable tape again, so you can remove the cutout when you are done stamping. I colored the leaves using the Old Olive Stampin' Blends. 

To make this project you will need the following paper.  For a complete list of all the products I used, please see the end of this post.

Cardstock:
