Time to get back to basics!  I only used one sheet of Whisper White Thick cardstock and ink on this card.  How cool is that!  I used the Rooted In Nature stamp set from the 2019 Stampin' Up! annual catalog.

I am so excited about tomorrow!  Erica and I are flying down to see Emily in Texas so we can go wedding dress shopping.  I think I am going to be feeling a lot of different emotions.  I am so happy for her, but also, can't believe my baby is old enough to be getting married.  How can that be?  I am only 29 years old!  LOL

If you think about it, we would love prayers for safe travel for this weekend for us and everyone else who is traveling.  I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend and a wonderful Labor Day! 

Happy Stampin and

Nobody likes to make sympathy cards.  When you need to make one, you need it right away and  it needs to be special.  I needed to make one for a very special family who has been very influential in my christian walk.  In the beginning, they were right there with me and I can never repay them for that.  

The first thing I thought of using on this card was one of the Bird Ballad Laser Cut cards.  These cards are absolutely beautiful!!!

I stamped the flowers from Good Morning Magnolia stamp set with Memento ink and colored them with the Mossy Meadow and Petal Pink Blends markers.  I stamped the sentiment with Mossy Meadow ink and cut it out with the Stitched Shapes dies and matted it with a piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock stock with the Layering Oval dies.

I thought I had posted pictures of our new deck, but realized that I never did.  I absolutely love how it turned out.

The upper deck was there, we had that part redone and then added the lower deck.  I love how we have room now for the grill now and a little picnic table for the kids.

The kids love to have their lunch and snacks outside.  This table is perfect size for them.  

Thank you to Daly Construction for the wonderful job they did on building this deck for us!  We love it!

It is the weekend!!!!  I hope you have a fantastic one!

Good Bye Lovely As A Tree, Hello Rooted In Nature

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Lovely As A Tree, Rooted In Nature, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects and more go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

Today I am celebrating Lovely As A Tree!  Can you believe this stamp set first came out in the Stampin' Up! 2001 annual catalog.  It is hard to believe that a stamp set has been around for so long.  When I first started being a demonstrator for Stampin' Up! I ordered this stamp on my first order.  I loved it then and still do.  I am going to miss this stamp set.  

Here are a few of the cards I have made with the Lovely As A Tree stamp set.

Finally, a card that isn't a Christmas card.  LOL  

Lovely As A Tree With Woodgrain Embossing Folder

I promise I have made a lot of cards with this stamp set that weren't Christmas.   I used it a lot before I started my blog on different projects, but I don't have pictures of the projects.  

Since we are saying goodbye to Lovely As A Tree, which I love, we need to say hello to Rooted In Nature.  I know if I needed a tree for any of projects I would go to Lovely As A Tree, but now I go to Rooted in Nature.  One thing that I really like in this stamp set is that there is a variety of stamps in this set.  You have sentiments, leaves, trees, a wood stamp and you can also purchase coordinating dies.  Until June 3rd you can get it as a bundle and save 10%!    

Here are a few projects that I have made with the Rooted in Nature stamp set.

It has been a while since I had made an eclipse card or used the Stampin' Up! Dragonfly Dreams stamp set.   I taught my advanced card making class this technique and they loved it.  It isn't a hard technique, it just takes a little more time to make.  It is so worth the time!

I stamped the dragonflies with Memento ink and then colored them with the Dark Pool Party and Dark Night of Navy Blends markers.  The more I use the blends markers the more I like, no, love them!

When the ink was dry on all of the dragonflies I added Wink of Stella to them.  They needed that little bit of bling to really bring them to life.  It is a lot easier to do it now, then later once the letters are cut out.  You need to let them totally dry before you use the Large Letter framelits to cut out your letters.

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

I was so excited to find out at OnStage that the Wishing You Well stamp set will be carried over.  I am so excited because we will be able to still get this stamp set after the sale period ends of the holiday catalog.  This stamp set is a DistINKtive stamp set, which means you get two different shades of color all while only stamping once.  The bow on the card is a perfect example of this unique stamp.  I used only two colors on this card, Night of Navy and Pear Pizzazz.

Rooted In Nature and Flourishing Phrases CT#155

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Rooted In Nature stamp set #146482, Flourishing Phrases stamp set #141534, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinsraper.com, Joyce Whitman

I had to make another sympathy card for one of my aunts as my uncle passed away unexpectedly.  I don't like having to make these type of cards,  I don't think anyone does, but when I do I try to make them as a reflection of the person who passed.  My aunt and uncle were suppose to go spend the weekend at the campground with all of their family, but God had different plans for them.   They spent the weekend together, just not in the place they thought they would.  

For this card I used the Rooted in Nature stamp set and used the sentiment in the Flourishing Phrases stamp set.  As I was making this card, I kept thinking of my uncles smile and laugh.  I will always remember that about him.  Great memories!

Here is my inspiration card for this weeks CASEing Tuesday

34199907_10213552857790195_6254417666623143936_n

The card I made this week is an easy design that you could make for any occasion. 

To make this card you will need the following products:

Cardstock:

Crumb Cake

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"

Very Vanilla

  • cut at 3 1/4" x 4 1/4" for the trees
  • cut at 3 1/2" x 4 1/4"
  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

To make the trees I used 3 of our  Stampin Write Markers.  I first inked the trees with the Shaded Spruce marker and then dabbed the tip of the Mossy Meadow marker randomly on top of the Shaded Spruce ink.  The trunks of the trees were colored with the Early Espresso marker.  A tip I have for you is when you use markers to color your stamps, make sure you huff on your stamp before you stamp your image on your paper.  You need to make sure your ink hasn't dried on your stamp as it takes longer to color them with markers than an ink pad. 

On the Crumb Cake card base I used Crumb Cake ink to stamp the leaf images.  I was trying to figure out what to use to make the grass on the bottom and then remembered there was a grass stamp in the Enjoy Life stamp set.  I used the Shaded Spruce ink to stamp the grass.  To decorate my envelope I stamped one of the trees on the bottom left hand corner.

Sympathy cards are always hard to make, especially when they are for your family.  This past week I had to make a card for my aunt and her family when my uncle passed away.  When I went into my stampin studio, I saw the Rooted In Nature stamp set sitting on my craft table and thought it would be perfect for a masculine card.  This is a great stamp set to use,  because whenever I think of  him, I think of trees and being out with nature. 

To make this card you will need the following products:

Cardstock:

Old Olive

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

Whisper White

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

Wood Textures Designer Series Paper

  • cut at 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" 

I stamped my images right on a piece of the Wood Textures designer series paper.  For the trees I used my Old Olive and Early Espresso Stampin markers to color my stamp.  I then huffed on the stamp to moisten the ink before stamping.  When you use markers to color your stamp, you want to make sure that you always huff on them so the ink is still moist and not dried out.  If you don't do this step you won't always get a good image.  I stamped one of the trees and then stammped it again, without putting more ink on it (this is the middle tree).  I reinked my stamp with the Stampin markers and stamped the third tree.

For the sentiment I used Soft Suede ink.  One trick I have taught my customers is when you are doing a solid image, such as this sentiment, you want to ink your stamp up a little different.  I tell them to tap, tap, tap your stamp on the ink pad, then twist, twist, twist, followed by tap, tap, tap.  This really does make a difference. 

I taught this to one of my customers who was having trouble with the Waterfront stamp set not getting a good image when stamped.  She text me and said that it made a world of difference in how her image was turning out.  Yay!  This is one of the many aspects of being a demonstrator for Stampin' Up! that I just love.  Helping people and bringing smiles to their faces.  It just warms my heart.

I then wrapped 5/8" Burlap Ribbon around the bottom and added one of the Leaves Trinkets, in the copper finish.  Because the Burlap Ribbon is quite thick I adhered this layer to the card base with Stampin Dimensionals.  Whenever I put ribbon on my project I always put the layer with the ribbon on with Stampin Dimensionals.  Your paper will lay a lot nicer over ribbon this way.

I decorated the inside and the envelope with the trees the same way I did them on the front of the card.

You could change the sentiment to Happy Birthday or Congratulations for more masculine cards.  

Thank you for stopping by today.  I really appreciate it!  Have a great day!
