Until I saw it on Pinterest on a card created by 2 Big Gals Crafting. I had to check it out and make one myself.

I used the beautiful Tidings of Christmas suite in the Stampin' Up! annual catalog. The sentiments are from this stamp set and stamped with Sahara Sand ink on the front and Cherry Cobbler on the inside. I used the Tidings of Christmas designer series paper to create the Twisted Ribbon Border. I love how Stampin' Up! puts a coordinating color on the back of the designer series paper. It makes it so much easier when doing a card like this.

It is the beautiful Gingham embossing folder. I thought it was really pretty in the catalog, but wait until you see it in person. It is absolutely gorgeous. You know what else I noticed with this embossing folder? Once you emboss it, both sides are beautiful. This was the first time that I love both sides of the paper once it is embossed.

One my list of products that I used to make this project, I can't add the Gingham embossing folder as it won't be available until January 4th.

I know some of you are probably wondering when you will get your new Stampin' Up! mini catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochure. If you ordered from me in the last year, you will receive one in the mail from Stampin' Up! I had them send them out as it is less expensive for me than to mail them out myself. You should be receiving it soon.

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you have a terrific day and week. 

Sending lots of love and hugs to everyone!

Happy Stampin!

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 #8 - Non Stampin' Up! Projects

Fall Friday

This week I am doing something totally different for my Fall Friday series. I have had so much fun creating projects for all of you using Stampin' Up! products. This week though, I am going to share with you projects I have made for fall that I have made with other products. 

Myself, along with my friends, Diana and Kim, have been busy creating projects for the fall season. The first project we made were Mr. and Mrs. Scarecrow.

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.

I stamped the sunflower on the inside of the card and on the envelope.

Have you tried either the spotlight or masking technique? I hope my project today gives you inspiration to go and try them for the first time, or use them on your next project if you already know how to create with them. 

Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you have a fantastic Friday and weekend. 

Sending lots of love and hugs to everyone!

I used the In Good Taste designer series paper, from the annual catalog, which is perfect for masculine cards. 

For the Happy Birthday sentiment, I wanted one that was on the bigger size. I found the perfect one in the Happiest of Birthdays stamp set. The Happiest of Birthday is one of the stamp sets that is on sale today, Wednesday, October 20th, during the 24 Hour Stamp Sale.

It's Friday! So, you know what that means. Time for my Fall Friday project! This week's project is a card that I made with the Love of Leaves stamp set from the annual catalog. I was looking for another stamp set, when I saw this stamp set on my shelf and realized that I had totally forgotten about it. Have you done that too?

One of the ways I like to get inspiration for my projects is to look out my craft room window. This time I noticed that the leaves are just starting to change colors. That made me think of the colors in the trees, when all the leaves are full color. They are so pretty. I love how God gives us such beautiful colors in the fall. It is one of the reasons that fall is my favorite season.

I had so many different colors on my desk, but finally, I ended up narrowing it down to the colors above. Do they remind you of fall?

I used a technique I hadn't used in a very long time, the thumping technique. You can do this technique two ways. On both of them you start with putting ink on your stamp, I used either Crushed Curry or Pumpkin Pie, and then you add color to it. You can use a Stampin' Write marker or a dauber to do this technique. You  tap (thump) the marker or dauber, with ink on it, on to the stamp with different colors. This is going to give you a variety of colors when you stamp your image. One tip I have for you is before you stamp your image, make sure you huff on it. You need to make sure that all of the ink is moist to get a nice image. This time I used a dauber as I wanted to have the textured look of real leaves.

One thing that I love about the dies, Stitched Leaves, is that on the leaves you can cut them out, only emboss them or do both. On the leaves that are stamped directly on the Basic White cardstock I just embossed them. On the two leaves that I stamped and the copper leaf, I cut and embossed them at the same time. I love the look of just the embossing on the stamped leaves. 

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.

I stamped the sentiment in Mossy Meadow ink and added a triple bow that I made with Linen Thread. 

Are the leaves changing in your area yet? I can't wait until they are at their peak of color here in Ohio.

You have until 11:59pm MT to get your own designer series paper or another product from  the Sale-A-Bration brochure. This paper is my favorite product from the brochure. 

Here are some other cards that I have made with this paper.

This is a quick and easy layout that you could use with any designer series paper. I added some of the paper on the envelope, because we can not send out a naked envelope. LOL

I love how you can use this paper for other occasions too. It doesn't have to be only for the holidays. One of my little angels loves, I mean loves, penguins, so I am going to give her this card for her birthday. She is going to love it.

This card I made for my thank you notes to my customers last month. Here is the blog post for this card, Thank You Penguin Card.

I wanted to let you know that the Glitter paper and sheep dies have already sold out.  Don't forget to use the September host code when you order. You get a free gift from when you spend $50 or more and you get a Sale-A-Bration product. That is definitely a win-win for you!

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

Sending lots of love and hugs to everyone!

Happy Stampin!

Fall Friday 2021 Week #3 - Delicate Dahlias

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up!, Fall Friday 2021 Week #3, Delicate Dahlias stamp set, sympathy, fall, simple stamping, created by Stampin Scrapper. For more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

Time for another project from my Fall Friday series! Today I have a simple stamping sympathy card to share with all of you. If you don't know, simple stamping is using ink, paper and stamps to create your card. Nobody likes to make sympathy cards, and when you do, you want to get them out in the mail right away. So, you need a card that is quick, easy and special. I have the perfect card for you.

I used the beautiful Delicate Dahlias stamp set from the Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration brochure. I used fall colors, Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Early Espresso, Merry Merlot and Mossy Meadow. I haven't used Merry Merlot in so long. I am not sure why though, it is beautiful.

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.

When I started thinking about what project I wanted to make this month, I remembered I had this strip of paper left from the Beauty of the Earth designer series pack. I looked through the holiday catalog to see what stamp set/dies could I use to make a card with it. I turn the page to the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set and knew that I wanted to use that set.
