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.

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.

Fall Friday 2021 Week #5 - Love Of Leaves Card

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.

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

During my annual catalog kickoff, I shared this Mini Jam Jar and Scalloped Craft Treat Box that I decorated using the You're A Peach suite.  I love how they turned out!

For more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

For the box I used the You're A Peach designer series paper and stamped the flowers, leaves and sentiment from the Sweet As A Peach stamp set.  I cut the tag with the die from the Stitched So Sweetly set.  To finish it off I used the beautiful Gold Shimmer Ribbon and the 2021-2022 In Color Jewels.

For more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

On the Mini Jam Jar I used the same designer series paper, just a different pattern and the same ribbon as on the box.  

For the designer series paper around the jar you will use a piece cut at 1 3/4" x 8".  For the top you will need a 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" piece and cut it using the largest scalloped circle in the Layering Circle Dies.  

HOW DID THEY DO THAT?

Did you notice the lid on the jar?  I saw it decorated like that in the annual catalog and was trying to figure out how they did it.  I finally did and wanted to share it with all of you.  It is actually easier than you think.  I did a quick Facebook live showing you how to decorate the lid with the paper and also how to shade the peach using two different colors.  Here is the video. 

 

Wasn't that easy?!  When I first was looking at it, I thought it was going to be so hard to figure it out, but it wasn't!  I can't wait to try it with other designer series papers.  What would you do with these jars?

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you have a great Thursday and have a nice and relaxing weekend.  

I am sending all of you lots of love and hugs.

Happy Stampin!

Welcome to our NEW AT SU! Blog hop! I love being a part of this wonderful blog hop with other Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the world.  Each month we share different crafting ideas with all of you!  Today we are showcasing retiring products from the 2020-2021 Stampin' Up! annual catalog, along with a technique!  I decided I was going to try a new technique that I just heard about.  Why I haven't seen or heard of it before, I do not know! Can you guess what technique I am talking about? Stampin Up, Stampin' Up!, What's New at SU blog hop, Gorgeous Posies stamp set, Joseph's Coat technique, Timeless Label Punch, handmade cards, birthday cards, created by Stampin Scrapper.

If you guessed the Joseph's Coat Technique, you are correct! One of my friends/downline asked if I had ever heard of the Joseph's Coat Technique.  I had not, but I sure wanted to find out about it.  So, off to YouTube I went.  Wow!!!  It is so cool and so fun to do.  There are endless possibilities with this technique.

Since we are showcasing retired products, I decided challenged myself.  I could only use retiring products on this card and I did!  I used the beautiful Gorgeous Posies stamp set, four of the  2019-2021 In Colors, Pretty Peacock, Rococo Rose, Seaside Spray and Terracotta Tile.  I also used the Timeless Label punch and the beautiful Seaside Spray Metallic ribbon, which I am going to miss.  I am sure glad I bought a bunch of the ribbon a long time ago.  The Seaside Spray is actually one of my daughter's colors for her wedding.

Aren't these flowers absolutely beautiful!  I will definitely do this technique more.  I think this is going to be an awesome technique for fall projects!  My creative juices are already flowing.

I was looking through some of my cards that I had previously made before I started doing my blog to get ideas on what to share with you on my Facebook live on Monday.  I came across a card that I actually had made recently, but for some reason never did a blog post about it.  The technique I used is called Floating Frame.

On Monday night on my Facebook live how showed how to make cards using the Floating Frame technique.  I made them as a fall card this time and love how they turned out.  

The internet cut me off during my live, so it is in two videos.  The second one is not very long.

Have you ever looked at a card and fell in love with it immediately?  I saw this card online and fell in love immediately.  The original designer of this card was Emma Goddard, a member of the Stampin' Up! Artisan team.  Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful card.  I love to color so this was right up my alley.  The Good Morning Magnolia stamp set and Magnolia Memory dies are perfect for coloring.  You know what else is awesome? You can get the stamp set and dies as a bundle and safe 10%!  I love when Stampin' Up! offers bundles.

For the pink card, I used the Lovely Lipstick, Petal Pink and Mossy Meadow - both dark and light - Stampin Blends.  I love these markers, they are perfect for coloring different layers of color on your projects.

For the blue card, I used the Night of Navy, Balmy Blue and Mossy Meadow - both dark and light - Stampin Blends.

What is really nice is I used one sheet of paper.   This one of the simple stamping cards, which is ink, paper and stamps.  You will need 

Whisper White Thick

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

I stamped the flowers and the sentiment with Memento Ink and then used the Stampin Blends for all the coloring.

I like to start with the darkest color first and go to the lightest color when I color in an images.  If you look closely you can see where I left a couple of spots white.  I wanted it to look as realistic as possible.  When you look at a flower the next time, see if you see some white spots?  Especially if the sun is shinning on it.  

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up!, Good Morning Magnolia, stamp set, Stampin Blends, Hello, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking or 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce WhitmanTo get part of the flower to stick up like in the picture above, it is actually quite easy. 

  • stamp your image with Memento ink
  • using the die in Magnolia Memory dies line up the flower
  • put the Big Shot plate edge where you want it to stop cutting (I did it at the score line)
  • put through the Big Shot - make sure you are cutting the side you want up to stand up
  • once you reach the score line, stop and crank the Big Shot handle the other direction
  • you don't want to cut it all the way through

You may have to trim it a little with your Paper Snips if you don't get it all the way to the score line.  When you fold your card on the score line, that part will stay up.  

Now is when you want to color it.  You don't want to color the whole thing, then go to cut it, make a mistake and ruin the whole card.  Ask me how I know not to do this.  LOL

To finish off the cards, I added Wink of Stella to the flowers and stems.  I love to color, so this card was especially fun for me to make.  We also made this card in my advanced card class, not because of difficulty, due to the amount of time it took to color everything.  The ladies loved it!

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.

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.

I was in Michigan for a few days visiting my mom and family.  It was nice the day I got there and then it got cold and rained.  It never fails whenever I go up there the weather turns cold.  Grrrr

Here are some pictures that I took while up there.

Lovely As A Tree Facebook Live

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.

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.

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!
