Merry Christmas Monday Week #3

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up!, Spirited Snowmen stamp set #148072, Frost White Shimmer paint #147046, Dazzling Diamonds #133751, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com
I had so much fun making this card!  I used one of my favorite Stampin' Up! stamp sets, Spirited Snowmen.  I know you are all in shock that one of my favorite stamp sets has snowmen in it.  LOL  I made this card for Mr. Wonderful for our 30th anniversary in October.   Can I tell all of you how hard it has been for me to not share this before now!  I knew I wanted to use it in my Merry Christmas Monday series, so I have been patiently waiting until now.   

I get so excited when I have a card that I really love and want to share it with everyone.   It has been killing me to keep quiet and if you know me, that is very hard for me to do.  But, I did it!  Yay!

On this card I used a few different techniques.  The first one is masking, which means that you are covering up certain areas of your projects so you can only work on a particular area.  Such as the moon and the snowmen.  For the moon I punched out a 1" circle (keep the paper you punched the circle out of ) and adhered it to the Whisper White paper with repositional tape where I wanted the moon to be.

I stamped the snowmen on the Whisper White paper and also stamped one on a scrap piece of paper.  I cut out the one on the scrap piece of paper and adhered it over the image I stamped on my project piece of  Whisper White paper.  Again, I used the repositional tape to adhere it.  Using this tape made it so much easier to take it off my project.

I then added the blue sky on the Whisper White paper using a combination of Balmy Blue and Night of Navy ink with sponges.   When I was finished I took off the 1" circle and snowmen.  Using the piece that I punched out the 1" circle from I adhered it so that the circles are lined up.  The circle on the paper and the one piece of paper I punched it out of.  I used Daffodil Delight and Crushed Curry to create the moon.  

Another technique I used was with the White Frost Shimmer Paint.  It is on the snow, snowmen and sporadically on the sky and moon.  On the snow and snowmen I added Dazzling Diamonds glitter after I put on the shimmer paint.  This gave the card a little bit of texture.

I used Stampin Write markers to color the snowmen and Whisper White Craft ink for the snow in the sky.

Seasonal Chums (CT #167)

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Seasonal Chums stamp set #144948, Blizzard Thinlits #147902, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

This week I have Christmas on my mind as I am prepping for my Christmas Card classes this week.  When I realized that there was vellum on the inspiration card, that got my creative juices flowing!  At my Stamp Camps last week we used the new Embossing Mats from the annual catalog, which got me thinking.  I wonder if I can use the Blizzard Thinlits on the Vellum paper with the Embossing Mats.  Why not try it and see what happens.  As you can see it worked out perfectly!

Here is a close up picture so you can see the embossing better.

Did you notice the shine on the Vellum?  I used the beautiful White Frost Shimmer Paint that is in the holiday catalog.  To get the coverage all over the Vellum, I used a sponge to apply it.  I dabbed the sponge in the paint first and then on to the vellum. 

To adhere the vellum to the card base I used the sponge again.  Put some glue on a clear block, take a sponge and dab it in glue. Then dab it on the back of the Vellum. The glue will dry clear so you won't see it through the Vellum.  

Here is our inspirational card this week:

For the snowman I used the Seasonal Chums stamp set and colored the snowman with Stampin Write markers.  I used the Balmy Blue, Basic Gray, Crumb Cake, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red and Shaded Spruce.   The sentiment is from the Timeless Tidings stamp set and was stamped with the Balmy Blue ink.

Sheltering Tree Spotlight Technique

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Sheltering Tree stamp set #137163, Spotlight Technique, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects, go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

At my stamp camps I use one stamp set and show how to create 3 different cards using that stamp set.  This is one of the cards from my class that we made using the Sheltering Tree stamp set from the annual catalog.  I also showed my class how to use the spotlight technique.  Have you tried that technique yet?  This technique it pretty simple and has such an impact on your card.

To do the spotlight technique you are going to take the small piece of Very Vanilla paper and attach it to the big piece of Very Vanilla.  When you attach it you want to use removal tape.  If you don't have that you can use snail adhesive, with a little trick.  You put a small amount, about the size of a pea, of tape  on the back of the little piece of paper.  Then you take your finger and tap, tap, tap on top of the tape.  What this does is take off some of the stickiness from the tape.  You don't want your piece to stay there permanently, just while you are stamping.

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Sheltering Tree stamp set #137163, Spotlight Technique, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects, go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

When you put your little piece of paper on the big piece you want to make sure that is where you are wanting it on the finished project.  Once you have that stamp your tree with Early Espresso ink.  You may have a little gap between the two pieces of paper on the stamped image, but that's ok.  You are going to put a mat under the top piece that will hide it.

Take off the top piece and place it on a piece of scrap paper.  This is when you are going to stamp the leaves in So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze.  You want to start with the So Saffron and stamp a little to the right on the tree.  Then you will stamp with the Pumpkin Pie ink and move the stamp a little to the left and turn it slightly.  You don't want to stamp directly over the first leaves you stamped.  You want to be able to see the different colors and a variation of where the leaves are.  You will do the same thing with the Cajun Craze ink.  

To get the leaves looking like they are blowing off of the tree I took the little stamp with leaves on it in the set and stamped them off to the side.  Once you have the leaves stamped you adhere that piece to your small piece of Cajun Craze.  Then you are going to line up your tree and adhere it to the big piece of Very Vanilla with Snail adhesive.  You don't want to pop this as you want it to look like it is all one piece.  That is how you do the spotlight technique!  What do you think?

I added my sentiment using the Early Espresso ink.  For the inside of my card and on my envelope I used the little stamp with leaves and stamped the bottom of both with the three colors.  The picture below shows you how I did it.

Fall Friday 2018 Week #3

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Falling For Leaves stamp set #147680, Detailed Leaves Thinlits #147921, Tin Tile Embossing Folder #147906, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

I saw this card online and my eyes went directly to the leaf.  I loved the different colors on it, but I thought how in the world did they do that?  I started playing around with it and finally figured out a fast and fun way to get the same look of the original card. The stamp set, Falling For Leaves, has a coordinating thinlit, Detailed Leaves and is available as bundle.  When you purchase a bundle you save 10%!  

The first thing I did was ink up the whole leaf stamp with Melon Melody ink.  Using daubers I added Blackberry Bliss ink randomly and then Poppy Parade ink.  Once you have all the ink on your stamp, make sure you huff on your stamp before stamping it on your paper.

What an expensive week we have had at our home!  We had to replace the refrigerator that we had in the basement.  It was 19 years old and starting to show it's age. We didn't want to wait until it died and we lost all of our food in it, so we replaced it now.  Erica needed new tires on her car, got a new computer and are having our air conditioner and furnace replaced today.  Ouch, Ouch, Ouch!!! When it rains, it pours.  I really hope that is all for a long time. 

I am really excited about this weekend though.  I am going to spend the weekend with my friend and fellow demonstrator, Mary.  We are going to have so much fun stamping and spending time together.  I can't wait!  Do you have any fun plans this weekend?

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

Winter Woods (CT#164)

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Winter Woods stamp set #147661, Watercolor Pencils #141709,  Frost White Shimmer Paint #147046, CASEing Tuesday, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman




Do you ever have those days where everything you try, nothing works.  Well, last night and this morning, it is just that.  I have had to take 50 pictures of the card above and none of them are turning out.  I am doing my lighting the same as always, using my iphone like I always do and it keeps coming out grainy or blue or a pink tint.  I have tried every light I can think of, no lights, it doesn't matter.  So the above picture is not the greatest picture and for that I apologize.  I am going to try again later today and see if it helps and if it does, I will put the new picture in.  Now, on with the post I had ready for you.


When I first saw the Winter Woods stamp set in the holiday catalog it went immediately on my wish list.  I couldn't wait to get it and start using it.  When I saw the inspiration card for CASEing Tuesday this week I knew I wanted to use this stamp set.  In the inspiration card they used Watercolor pencils, which I haven't used in a while, so I was excited to use them.  I used the Pacific Point and Basic Gray pencils on this card. 

Here is our inspiration card for this week:

40096962_10214130891120667_619954640569499648_n

On my card I first lightly put the basic gray on the bottom of the Whisper White cardstock and then went even lighter on the top.  I wanted to just do a very light base for the blue watercoloring.  When I colored with the Pacific Point pencil I barely pushed down on it.  I didn't want it dark, or medium for that matter, I wanted it to be light like the sky.

I stamped the trees with Stazon ink and then added the Shimmer paint. Using a sponge, on put the paint on the the area below the trees and then on the edges by the trees and the top edge.  To put the paint on the trees, I used a dauber and tapped it randomly.  I didn't want to cover all of the trees, I wanted it to look like snow was on them.  

After the paint dried, I stamped the sentiment using Stazon ink.  I popped up the Balmy Blue layer and the white layer.  

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:

Black

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

I had my holiday catalog kick off class on Saturday.  I took pictures before, but didn't take any during the class.  I really need to get better at taking pictures.  I didn't even take pictures of my pumpkin cookies I made.  I have to admit, they turned out great.  Below are some pictures before everyone came.

I used one of the beautiful sheets of paper from the Nature's Poem designer series paper, which I layered on top of Blackberry Bliss and Grapefruit Grove cardstock.  I made the leaves with a fun coordinating framelits set, Nature's Roots.  In this set of framelits you have the cutting framelits, , but you also have the embossing framelits.  See the picture below to see how you use these framelits.  They turn out beautiful!

I don't know if you can see on the picture or not, but I put Copper Embossing Powder over the Embossing Paste and heat set it.  It is so fun to make and it is so impressive when it is done.  We made these in my technique class and the ladies were crazy about them.

To make this card you have to work kinda fast.  You don't want to let the paste dry before you put the embossing powder on it.  The first thing I did was put on the Embossing Paste using the brick masks from the Patter Party Decorative Masks.  As soon as I had that finished added the copper embossing powder to all of the embossing paste. 

I had to put sprinkle the embossing powder over it a couple of times to make sure it adhered the way I wanted it to.  You then use your heat gun to warm up the embossing powder so it melts.  You will have to hold the heat gun a little bit longer than you do when you use the embossing powder with the VersaMark ink.  It is so fun to watch the embossing powder melt into the paste.   Such a neat effect!

You will notice on the picture that I did not put the Embossing Paste all over my card, just part of it.  You can do whatever you would like to do with yours.  

I stamped my sentiment from Lovely Wishes and the flower is from the Delightful Daisy stamp set using the Night of Navy ink.  I punched out the daisy with the coordinating punch.  I used the Leaf punch that was carried over from the holiday catalog.  I sure hope they keep both of those in the new annual catalog which is coming out in June.

For a final touch I added a 1/2" circle from the Copper Foil Sheets and put it in the middle of the daisy.  I also stamped the daisy on the inside of my card and on the envelope.

Stained Glass Rose Wonder with Blends Markers

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Rose Wonder stamp set #140697, Daffodil Delight Blends #144585, Rich Razzleberry Blends #144583, Old Olive Blends #144573, Rose Garden Thinlits #140619, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

The Stained Glass technique is such a pretty technique.  You don't really see how beautiful it is in a picture, you need to see it in person.  This technique looks like it is complicated, but the truth is, it is so easy!  

The biggest trick to doing this the paper you use to make it.  Can you guess what it is?  It is Vellum!  The first thing I did was stamp the image from Rose Wonder stamp set, with VersaMark ink and then add silver embossing powder.  I then heat set it with the heating tool.  I also did this technique with the sentiment and then cut it out using the Rose Garden Thinlits.

Once I had that finished the embossing, I flipped over the piece of Vellum, so the back was facing up.  I used the Daffodil Delight, Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive Blends markers in the dark shades to color the rose.  Wasn't that easy?!

Here's another trick for you!  You know how adhesive shows through Vellum and none of us like that.  Usually,  you have to strategically place it so it is behind a stamped image, or sentiment, any place you can hide the adhesive.  Well, I have a way that you don't have to do that anymore.  You take our Multipurpose Liquid Glue and put some on a clear block, yes it comes right off, or a paper plate.  You then take one of our sponges (I cut mine into either 6 or 8 pieces), dab it in the glue and then tap, do not wipe or smear it on, it on the back of the Vellum.  Lay it on top of they white piece of cardstock and it adheres perfectly without any of it showing.  Isn't that awesome?

I then added my sentiment which I popped up with the Stampin Dimensionals.  To finish off the card I added Wink of Stella to the the rose and leaves.  It is so pretty in person. 

Try and make one yourself and you will be amazed at how beautiful this card really is.  My mom's birthday is next month and she loves roses.  I am going to make her one of these cards for her in her favorite rose color, red.  I think I am going to try and use both the light and dark on it and see how that comes out.

We have throughly enjoyed having Emily home this past week.  Time went too fast as always.  We really didn't do anything special, just hung out and talked.  When she comes home she always makes sure she goes and sees Alex.  Who is Alex, only the best hair stylist around!!!  We all love him.  Both, Emily and Erica, go and see him when they come home.  What is funny is they schedule some of their visits around when they want there hair cut.  

Emily goes home this afternoon and won't be back until June.  She has a crazy summer with lots of weddings, one she is a bridesmaid, and all of us with the grandRandall's going to Disney!  I get to see Erica next month when I go to Michigan for my mom's 85th birthday and the 30 year anniversary of my dad's death.  I still can't believe it was 30 years.  Some days it does seem that long and other days, it is like it was yesterday.  I sure do miss him though.  He was a fabulous man!

Watercoloring with Brusho Crystal Colours

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Rose Wonder stamp set #140697, Brusho Crystal Colour #144101, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman
I was really excited to see everyone who enjoyed my last project using the Brusho Crystal Colours.  I think it was one of the highest views on my blog and FaceBook.  If you missed the post click HERE to see it.  This is another project that I did using the Brusho Crystal Colours.  This time I used them a little different and it came out with a whole new look.  For some reason when I photographed the pictures, the leaves came out more brown.  In person, they are a green with a little bit of yellow added.  

The first thing I did on this project was to stamp the biggest rose from the Rose Wonder stamp set with Versa Mark ink and emboss it with White Embossing Powder.  I used the watercolor paper for this project.  Once I had the embossing done, I was ready to start the fun part of the card.  Watercoloring!

I sprinkled a little, and I mean a little, bit of crystals onto one of my clear blocks.  I used the letter "E" block so I had room to move it around a bit.  I then added water, using my Aqua Painter brushes, and mixed it up good.  I started with the blue for the flower first and then did the leaves.  I moved my color around on my block so that I had some areas that we lighter than others.  I could pick up the ink from what ever area I wanted.  Dark for the edges, light for the center.  I still did shading with brushes after I got all of it covered.  It is easier to do shading when you have it already a little darker in certain areas.

You don't have to worry about going over the lines in the inside for the flower or leaves as they are already embossed so the paint is not going to stick to it.  I was, however, careful around the outside edges.  You don't want it to bleed outside of your lines.  

For the leaves I started with the green crystals and then added a little bit of the yellow crystals.  I mixed them up good and spread them out on another block.  Same as with the flower, be careful on your outside edges.  

With using the White Embossing Powder it makes it look like the flower is almost floating on the paper.  

I didn't add anything else on the front of the card this time.  I thought it was so pretty just by itself.  You can put a sentiment on the inside, if you want or add one to the front.

To make this card you will need the following products:

Cardstock:

Marina Mist

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

Watercolor Paper

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

Whisper White

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

I haven't had time to play more with the Brusho Crystals but I will.  I really enjoyed creating these two projects for my Technique class.  They were a big hit with the ladies that took the class.

Last weekend I went to a retreat given by Tina Rappe and Peggy Murwin, the Stampin Sisters.  Oh My Goodness!!!  They did a fantastic job!  All the little details they thought of, all the products we were given and the projects!  It was so much fun that I hope I will be able to go next year!  

One of the reasons, there were many, I wanted to go to it was because I want to try and do a retreat soon.  I wanted to see how they ran it, set it up, how they did the projects, door prizes, actually how they did all of it.  You sure can tell this was their 12th year doing it.  They put their heart and soul into the whole weekend.  

The theme this year was picnic.  Here are some pictures of our fun weekend!

The picture on the left was a gift for all the new people that attended this year.  After every break we had, when we went back into the room we had a new gift waiting for us.   The top right is the cookies we got on Sunday morning.  They were so kind and made special ones for the ladies that needed gluten free food.  The bottom right is one of the projects we made.  I have to say it is my favorite.  I really like how it came out.

The picture on the right is my friend from Iowa, Beth, that I went to the retreat with.  It was so nice to see her and spend time with her.  I wish we lived a lot closer.  The picture on the left is our table mates, Margie and Maxine.  I love, love, love these ladies.  We all clicked so well together and worked so good together.  We had a great time.  I am really hoping we all can make it next year and be table mates again.  I am excited that I will get to see all of them in April in Milwaukee!

Would any of you be interested in a retreat if I put one on in Ohio?  

Thank you for stopping in today, I really appreciate it.  I hope you have a wonderful Thursday!
