On Friday night I had my monthly card class and I featured the Come Sail Away Suite.  At this class we make 3 different cards using the same stamp set, framelits and designer series paper.  This is a great way to show how versatile our products are.  The above card is one of the cards we made in class.  

Do you know where I got the layout for this card?  I had used it in another card with the same theme in May 2016.  I use the Open Sea stamp set.  Here is a picture of the card I originally made.

Then, I looked over on my craft table and saw the Basket Weave embossing folder and I immediately knew I wanted to do a flower basket.  In my pile of stamp sets I saw the Bloom and Grow stamp set and knew it would be perfect!  I love to color so this card was a lot of fun for me to design and make.

Good Morning Magnolia

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Good Morning Magnolia, Stampin Blends, Thank You, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

I know the new Good Morning Magnolia stamp set is going to be very popular when the new Stampin' Up! annual catalog goes live on June 4th.  It is such a beautiful stamp set with coordinating dies, designer series paper, ribbon, embossing folder and so much more!  

I saw this card online, but it wasn't watermarked, so I don't know who created it.  Isn't it beautiful?  I love to color, so this card caught my eye right away.  I used the Petal Pink - light and dark and light Mossy Meadow blends.  

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Good Morning Magnolia, Stampin Blends, Thank You, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

I tried to color the magnolias to match the designer series paper.  I have to say, they turned out better than I thought they would.  I just love the blends markers.  

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.

Cardstock:

Whisper White Thick

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"

Petal Pink

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

Whisper White

  • cut at 2 1/4" x 3 1/4"
  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4" for inside the card
  • scraps for flowers

Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper

  • cut at 2" x 5 1/2"

After I stamped the Thanks sentiment, I used the Stitched Shapes framelits to cut it out.  To give the Petal Pink cardstock texture, I embossed it with the Layered Leaves embossing folder.  I also used the new 5/8" Organdy Striped Ribbon to wrap around the cardstock.

To adhere the sentiment I used Stampin Dimensionals to give it a little bit of lift off of the layer below it.  

Most of the products that I used on this card will not be available for purchase until June 4th when the 2019-2020 Stampin' Up! annual catalog goes live.

Lovely As A Tree Facebook Live

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Lovely As A Tree, 2018-2019 Annual Catalog, Calligraphy Essentials, Sponging, Facebook Live, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

Every Monday night at 7:00pm I have a Facebook Live on my Stampin Scrapper Facebook page.  Since Stampin' Up! was having a day of celebrating Lovely As A Tree, I thought I should celebrate it too!  But, how was I going to celebrate it? 

One way was to share with you on my blog post on Monday my favorite Lovely As A Tree and Rooted In Nature stamp sets.  Another way was creating a fun project to demonstrate on my Facebook Live.  

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Lovely As A Tree, 2018-2019 Annual Catalog, Calligraphy Essentials, Sponging, Facebook Live, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

As my husband, Mr. Wonderful, and I were driving home on Sunday, I noticed how pretty the trees looked against the sky.  That got my creative juices flowing on how to take that look and make it into a card.  My next step was to search Pinterest for ideas on how to do a sky background and what time of day I wanted to do.  After looking at a lot of different cards, I knew I wanted to do a sunset.

I really like how it turned out.  I also knew I wanted to use one of the stamp sets that I hadn't used in a very long time.  As I was looking through my stamp sets, I found the Calligraphy Essentials stamp set.  It had some cobwebs on it, (not really) so it was time to brush it off and use it.  I think the sentiment is perfect for this card.  What a better way to watch the sunset and thank God for your day.  

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.

Cardstock:

Crushed Curry

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"

Basic Black

  • cut at 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"

Whisper White

  • cut 2 at 4" x 5 1/4"

Here is the video showing you how to do the sponging on this card.

 

Now, you can create beautiful sunsets yourself!  What stamp set are you going to use on your project?

 

Thank you for stopping in today!  I hope you have a terrific day!  Tomorrow I am heading to Michigan to spend some time with my mom and the rest of my family.  I can't wait to see them.  It has been way too long!

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.

Coffee Cafe Tunnel Card

I have used the Coffee Cups at least once a month, sometimes more, since they came out.  This is one stamp set, Coffee Cafe, and framelits, Coffee Cups, that I will be keeping for a very long time.  The stamp set and framelits are perfect for making cards and gift card holders when you give away coffee gifts cards.  For texture on this card I used the Garden Trellis embossing folder and the Garden Impressions designer series paper, which are both retiring.

This was a fun card at my card class!  The Dragonfly Dreams stamp set with the coordinating Detailed Dragonfly thinlits are both retiring.  Also, retiring is the Large Letter Framelits.  I am sad about the Large Letter Framelits because I love them!  They are another product that I won't be getting rid of.  

Here are the colors that are also retiring this month.  The Lemon Lime Twist and Fresh Fig cardstock, however, are SOLD OUT.

Who is going to miss the Gingham Gala designers series paper?  I sure am!  I am happy to let you know that the Butterfly Gala stamp set and Duet Butterfly punch are going to be in the new Stampin' Up! 2019-2020 annual catalog.  I don't know about you, but I absolutely love punches.  When I see there is a stamp set that has a coordinating punch, I get so excited!

I designed this card for one of my card classes and it was a big hit.  You could use any color in the Gingham Gala designer series paper for a total different look.  For the butterflies on this card, I stamped them in Balmy Blue, Daffodil Delight and Highland Heather.

There is one thing that I absolutely love about this stamp set.  The butterflies (small and large) are one stamp that fit perfectly with the punch.  You don't have to try and line up the two butterflies to fit perfectly with the punch.  Below is a picture of the stamp set and punch so you can see what I am talking about.

I cut out 2 of the circle swirls and off set them to make it look fuller.  I didn't pop anything this time because I added a pearl in the center of the flower.  I was afraid if I added a stampin' dimensional under the flower it would be too high to mail.

OnStage!  I am getting so excited!  I get to meet one of my best friends!  Yes, you read that right.  I get to meet her.  You are probably wondering how is it that I never met her before.  Well, we live thousands of miles from each other, so it has been a little difficult to see each other in person.  We started talking on a Facebook group with other Stampin' Up! demonstrators and realized we have a lot in common and we think a lot alike.  It is actually kind of scary how much we are alike. 

I will be posting pictures and giving you a few sneak peeks on my Stampin' Scrapper and Stampin Scrapper VIP Facebook pages and Stampin_Scrapper on Instagram Make sure you check them out!

Dragonfly Dreams Eclipse Card

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Dragonfly Dreams stamp set #124924, Large Letter Framelits #141712, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman, Eclipse, technique, handmade, paper crafting, stamping, rubber stamping

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.
