Any young boy would be happy to get this card for their birthday.  I made this card for my great nephew, who's birthday is next week.  All week you have seen me use the Geared Up Garage stamp set in different ways.  For this card, I used the stamp set again, however, I added another stamp set, Perennial Birthday, for the sentiment.

Did you notice the paper under the card?  It is a sheet from the Classic Garage 6" x 6" designer series paper!  Did you also notice the gears on the card are the same ones on the paper?  How cool is that!  Yesterday on my Stampin Scrapper Facebook page, I shared a tip on how to cut out the images on the paper.  If you didn't see it on my page, here it is.

For the sentiment I first stamped the background image with a stamp from the Geared Up Garage stamp set.  I used the Gray Granite ink and stamped my image off on a scrap piece of paper first, before I stamped it on the Whisper White cardstock.  I then stamped the sentiment with Black Memento ink.  On the inside of the card and on my envelope I stamped the image you see in the picture above.  I, then popped the Real Red circle using Stampin Dimensionals and used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the gears.  

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.

Crushed Curry

  • cut at 4 1/4" x 11" score at 5 1/2"

Real Red

  • a piece of scrap paper for a 2" circle

Whisper White

  • a piece of scrap paper for the 1 3/4" circle
  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

While I was editing my photos yesterday, I decided to play a little bit.  I have never done a picture in a shape other than a square or rectangle.  This time I decided to try a circle.    I have to say, I like it.

Life Is Grand

When I was looking through the new occasions catalog I was drawn to the Life is Grand stamp set.  There are times that I want a big sentiment so I can make that the focus of my card, and this stamp set is exactly that.  Big sentiments.  My favorite designer series paper in the whole occasions catalog is the Floral Romance pack.  There are two double sided designs and two single sided designs that are on vellum.  I have to say the vellum design I used on this card is my favorite.  It is so beautiful!

When I went to attach the vellum to the Fresh Fig piece of cardstock, I really didn't like how the design on the vellum looked muted.   How could I make the design come through, so you can see how pretty this paper is?  I saw the vellum laying on my white craft table and realized that I needed to put a piece of white paper behind it.  I cut it the same size as the vellum so you can't see it.  I then attached it to the Fresh Fig piece of cardstock.  

The sentiment is popped with Stampin Dimensionals and then to finish off the card I put one of the flowers from the Frosted Flower Embellishments.

Embossing on Copper Tea Tins

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Spirited Snowmen stamp set #148072, Copper Tea Tins #147034, 5/8" Striped Burlap Trim #147889, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

Do you need a fast gift box for a small gift?  Do you want to really impress the recipient of your gift?  I have the perfect solution for you!  You can emboss on the Copper Tea Tins in the annual catalog!

They are the perfect size for a small gift, a piece of jewelry, a gift card or to put little treats in.  I created more of these, with different designs, for some treats I was giving to friends and they were a big hit.  I forgot to take a picture of them before I gave them out.  One nice thing about these tins is, you can use these for any occasion, it doesn't have to be just for Christmas.

The first thing I did was use my Embossing Buddy and rubbed it all over the front of the tin.  I needed to make sure I got all the static off of it.  I then stamped it with Versa Mark and added white embossing powder.  I heated it with the Heat Tool, but be careful as the tin can get hot.  Once I had the embossing done, I used my Stampin Write Markers to color is some of the image.

Have a great weekend and thank you for taking time to stop by!

Stampin Up, Stampin Up Winter Woods #147661, Shadow Box Card, Christmas Card, Created by Stampin Scrappr, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

I saved my best project for last the Merry Christmas Monday project of 2018!   I made my first shadow box card!  I saw a regular folded card made with the Winter Woods stamp set from the holiday catalog and they embossed the trees in white.  That got my creative juices flowing and I knew what I wanted to do, but I needed to figure out how.

I got on to YouTube and saw a tutorial from Dawn Griffith on how to do a shadow box card.  I watched her make one and went from there on how to design my card.  Thank you for Dawn for sharing your directions!

Isn't the side view so awesome!!!  I was so excited when I finished this card, that I had to run upstairs and show it to Mr. Wonderful and Erica.  I have to say, I think I impressed them with this card! Yay!!!  This card will lay flat so you can put it in a normal size envelope.

Here is a close up of the front of the card.  On this piece I stamped the trees with Versa Mark and then used Clear Embossing Powder to give them that shine.  On the inside of the card, I used Night of Navy ink to create the background and then used White Embossing Powder on the trees.

For my snow I did use the retired white velvet paper that was in the holiday catalog.  You could use the Sparkle Glimmer paper that is in the annual catalog.  I made this card about 2 months ago and the paper was available at that time.  It has been hard waiting share this card with all of you.  The trees in the Winter Woods are so beautiful.  It doesn't matter if you stamp them with ink, or emboss them with different embossing powders, they are still beautiful each and every time.   I am so excited that this stamp set is carrying over into 2019!  

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:

Night of Navy

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 10 1/2" score at 1/2", 4". 4 1/2" and 8"
  • cut at 4" x 5 1/2"

Whisper White

  • cut 2 at 3 1/4" x 5 1/4"

To cut the opening I used the Layering Square Framelits to create a rectangle.  In the new Occasions catalog there is Rectangle Stitched Framelits that I can't wait to try.  I used the Metallic Edge Ribbon in Whisper White to wrap around the front of the card.  I then took another piece of the ribbon and used it to tie a knot.

I really, really, enjoyed making this card and have already come up with ideas to make another one with this shadow box type of fold.  

I hope you like the card I created and would love to hear your feedback on it.  Please let a comment below.  I ended up making this card for both our moms for their Christmas cards this year.   I know they are going to love it, because moms are suppose to love whatever we make.  Right?  

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you are all finished with your Christmas shopping.  If not, I might see you out shopping later this week!

Dandelion Wishes Get Well Card

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Dandelion Wishes stamp set #146747, Created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects, go to Stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

It is so striking when you use white embossing powder for your stamped images against a darker color.  On this card I used the Dandelion Wishes stamp set and stamped it with Versa Mark ink.  I then added the white embossing powder and heat set.  It is so striking, which I tried to get in the picture, but it is hard to get the full effect.  Trust me, it is beautiful in person.

To add a little texture to the card, I added a piece of the Basic Gray cardstock (the same size as the front of the card) and embossed it with the Subtle Embossing Folder.  The first time I tried just embossing the front section of the card base, but I didn't like how it made the front of the card almost seem thin.  So, I decided to emboss a separate piece of paper and attach it to the front of the card.

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
  • cut at 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
  • cut at 3 1/4" x 4 1/2"
  • cut at 2 1/2" x 2 1/2"

Mint Macaron

  • cut at 2 1/2" x 2 1/2"
  • cut at 3 3/8" x 4 5/8"

Whisper White

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

I also used Versa Mark ink and White Embossing Powder on the sentiment.  I cut it out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  The sentiment and under the Mint Macaron layer is popped up using Stampin Dimensionals. 

Do you have any special plans for this weekend?  I am going to try and finish up my Christmas shopping and do my baking this weekend.  Every year I make goodie bags for each daycare family.  I usually put between 10-12 different goodies in their bags.  They look forward to it each year.  Tonight I am finishing up my mother-in-laws famous nut roll.  It takes me two days to make it, but it is so worth it!  Do you have a favorite recipe you make each year?

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you have a terrific weekend!

The Snowflake Showcase promotion is ending on Friday, November 30th, so I wanted to make another card to show you how beautiful the products are in the special offer!  When I started playing with the Snow is Glistening stamp set the only thing I knew was I wanted to use the Christmas tree.  Other than that I didn't have a clue what I wanted to do.

I first started with the snowfall on the top by stamping it with VersaMark ink and adding White Embossing powder.

I stamped the Christmas trees three times.  First, I stamped the outside trees, using a mask for where the middle tree will go, and then the center tree.  I added the sentiment to a 3/4" piece of Night of Navy cardstock using the Silver embossing powder.

The final touch I put on this card is the snowflake on top of the treat from the Snowflake Trinkets.  I will say I am really going to miss this stamp set and coordinating thinlits called Snowfall.

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!

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

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:

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.

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.
