Watercooler Challenge – WCC31 – Hello Winter

WCC31 – Heidi’s Sketch Challenge

Hello Winter

(yep…I’m hot and wanting the weather to cool off)

WCC31 Heidi's Sketch Challenge

Yikes!   I saw that sketch and my mind went blank.  I panic when something looks complicated or I can’t easily see the layers.    Then I realized I just needed to break down the parts into it’s layers and suddenly it all made sense.   It actually helped to take some of the scraps I had sitting on my desk and replicated the layering and positions.   Being a visual person in many ways I’ve learned coping mechanisms that help in my crafting.  How about you?   Did you panic…does it look complicated to you?  Really it’s easy peasy as you’ll see when you check out the Challenge Artists various takes on the sketch.

Join the rest of the design team over at the Challenge blog website here to see the rest of the teams designs and to add your own with the linky doodad.  When you add your own design and there are more than three entries, one of you will be a challenge winner and have the option to place the winner’s badge on your own site.  Of course…you’ll also win bragging rights!

Here’s my Hello Winter interpretation of Heidi’s sketch.

Hello Winter - WCC31 - Heidi's Sketch Challenge - Jean Fitch using several new Holiday Catalog items.

With it as hot as it’s been the last few days…105º, 102º and so on I’m longing for cooler winter temperatures.  So yes…I’m ready to say…Hello Winter.   Of course once it actually comes I may be singing another tune.   I’m really a Fall and Spring girl though this year we had very little Spring and Fall is promising to be as hot as Summer.   Predictions are for a heavy winter though so I better enjoy the sunshine while I can and dream of winter in an idealized way now that new Holiday Catalog product is in my hot little hands.   September 1st is just around the corner when you’ll be able to order as well.   Trust me when I say…you are going to love it…and you are going to want it all!

Did you see the new Holiday Catalog sneak peeks?  Here’s a hint…think shapes and papers and glue.  I had so much fun with papers and embellishments that I almost forgot to add stamping to the card.  Then I realized that it might be good to identify who I was saying hello to so my friends I’m sending this too won’t be too confused when they see snowflakes in August.  I searched my stamps and found a text from the new Happy Scenes stamp set that said Happy Winter so I selectively stamped the Winter part of the text and gold embossed it.   Gold seemed to fit the theme I have going with the new and gorgeous Winter Wonderland Designer Vellum Stack.   If you’ve always wanted to play with vellum…this stack is the perfect way to get going.  You get 36 sheets with 3 each of 6 gold foil & 6black designs.  I also made liberal use of the new wood Snowflake Elements.   As for the glue hint…we have a new fine tipped glue pen/dispenser.  It’s very useful for those skinny mini spaces, sequins and other embellishments.  Just don’t use it on ribbon since it’s quite liquid.  It’s quite strong though it does take a bit to set up and finish it’s bonding.   A tad different from some of our other adhesives but once you learn its ways you are going to love having this in your arsenal of crafting tools.

 Supplies:

Stamps:  Happy Scenes – Winter text image  (2015 Holiday Catalog)

Ink:  Versamark

Paper: Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Basic Black Cardstock.  Gold Foil.  Pretty Petals Designer Series Paper Stack, Winter Wonderland Designer Vellum Stack (2015 Holiday Catalog)

Punches: 1″ circle, Banner Triple (new – creates the flag/banner ends)

Other:  Big Shot, Greetings Thinlet dies, Metallics Sequin Assortment, Paper Snips,  Fine-Tip Glue Pen, Dimensional, SNAIL

*****************

 That’s it for this challenge.  I hope you’ll join the Watercooler challenge and show us your own sketch inspired project and link up to us.  We didn’t have sufficient linky posts to declare a winner for the last challenge but I hope you’ll check this post out so you can see the wonderful additions by Susie & Kathe. Check the challenge site for rules on competing for future challenges.

Hugs and Blessings to all my challenge friends and readers.

August Wacky Watercooler Blog Hop: Showcasing Sprinkles of Life and a CASE

August 2015 Banner

Welcome to the Wacky Watercooler

August Blog Hop.

Hopefully you’ve arrived from  the wonderful and always inventive Miss Gail.    As usual you can follow this hop in a circle going either direction.  Of course you can also return to the home hop site if you ever get lost along the way.

Do You love sprinkles, life and stamping?

I do!

Then what better kind of hop than one that features a stamp set that covers all three things!

Sprinkles of Life catalog image

Whether it’s sprinkles of raindrops, sprinkles on a cupcake or a sprinkle of flowers…I love sprinkles.  And life for me includes the joy of stamping.   So of course when Stampin’ Up introduced a new Ronald McDonald set called Sprinkles of Life…and added a matching punch…I fell fast and hard in love with both the stamps and the punch!

I love too that Ronald McDonald House Charities also scores with a $3 donation for each set sold (hint, hint…buy it now!).  If you haven’t heard of RMHC it’s a wonderful endeavor that offers housing and help to families who have children in hospitals in various cities throughout North America.  Some houses even have Stampin’ Up demonstrators who take on various projects in the house including providing cards and stamping events to help lessen the stress.

*******

My first Sprinkles of Life original creation….

 Trees in a Box

Trees in a Box - August 2015 Watercolor Hop - Jean Fitch - Sprinkles of Life stamp set, Tree Builder Punch

This fancy fold is referred to as a Card in a Box.  There are any number of tutorials available though our own Watercooler alum Heidi Weaver has one here.   I’ve adjusted it just a wee bit (making it 5″ tall so I can have some extensions above the back of the box and scoring at 2-3/4″ instead of 3″).

If you are wondering how you mail this…here is the secret of this very cool type of fold.   It folds flat to mail and then pops back out to its 3D loveliness.   Warning…because of the extra thickness you will need to add extra postage.   Oh…and there is an area on the back of the tall back piece where you can leave your message and any watermarking you want to add.

Sprinkles Card in a Box - fold flat - August 2015 WWC hop - Jean Fitch

Here are a few other angles to give you the whole picture:

Sprinkles Card in a Box side - Wacky Watercooler August 2015 Sprinkles of Life hop - Jean Fitch

Sprinkles in a box - detail - Wacky Watercooler August 2015 Sprinkles of Life hop

Note to self…do not work with Red and Green together in future…or else get a proper light box before Christmas!   Turns out those two colors in combination are among the hardest to get an accurate picture of and the background colors for the camera work play a major role as well.   For instance…in the above picture the text is stamped in Real Red…but it looks pink (as in Melon Mambo)!  And the greens are also much darker than they look in the picture.  More Garden Green…less the look of Pear Pizzazz.   The birds actually are pink cardstock but with Real Red ink to provide the outline.

Supplies:

Stamps: Sprinkles of Life

Ink: Real Red, Garden Green, Early Espresso

Paper:  Wild Wasabi, Real Red, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso

Punches: Tree Builder, Scallop Oval

Other: Big Shot, Simply Score, Paper Snips, SNAIL, Tombow multipurpose adhesive glue, Dimensionals, glue dots.

My second Sprinkles of Life original creation….

Flipping for Sprinkles Card

Flipping for Sprinkles - August 2015 Wacky Watercooler Hop - Sprinkles of Life - Jean Fitch

Flipping for Sprinkles - inside - August 2015 Wacky Watercooler Hop - Sprinkles of Life - Jean Fitch

This is my version of Clean and Simple…sort of.  Not much in the way of layers…and pretty much just ink and paper.

A tad hard to tell (though if you click the picture you’ll get a better view) but the hello from the Greetings Thinlits is doubled with two colors.  The outline at the back is Soft Suede and the top layer is Early Espresso.  Can you tell my hankering for chocolate came out in this card.  All that’s missing is a caramel filling. :D   And once again… it’s hard to tell that the flowers & text are Real Red.   And the greens are also darker.

Supplies:

Stamps: Sprinkles of Life, Trust God

Ink: Real Red, Soft Suede, Crushed Curry, Garden Green, Wild Wasabi

Paper:  Real Red, Whisper White, Soft Suede, Early Espresso

Punches: 2″ Circle, 2-1/2″ Circle

Other: Big Shot, Large Polka Dot Embossing Folder,  Greetings Thinlits, SNAIL or Tombow multipurpose adhesive glue, Glue dots.

*******

And lastly… we are also CASEing (Copy & Share Everything) the new Annual Catalog yet again… a popular feature of our hops.

The Stampin’ Up 2015 catalog image for my CASE is this one:

2015 Annual Catalog page 18 - Watercolor Thank You

2015 Annual Catalog page 18   –   Watercolor Thank You

And here’s my altered version:

(click to view a close up)

Watercolor Thank You CASE the catalog - 2015 August Wacky Watercooler Hop - Jean Fitch

The concept and layout is still basically the same but the colors, textures and an extra layer are all mine. :D I moved from the originals Crumb Cake to Tip Top Taupe.  And from flowers to hexagons for my background.   I love working with the new In Colors and of course black and silver are the perfect accompaniments to the subtle colors in the collection.

Supplies:

Stamps: Watercolor Thank You

Ink Memento Tuxedo Black

Paper: Tip Top Taupe, Mint Macaron Cardstock.  Pretty Petals Designer Series Paper Stack

Punch: Banner Triple

Other: Big Shot, Circle Collection Framelits, Honeycomb Embossing Folder,  Silver Metallic Baker’s Twine, SNAIL, Dimensionals.

**Thanks Stampin’ Up for creating such wonderful catalog samples and super tools to CASE with!**

*******

And thank you for coming along for the hop ride.  That’s it for my stop on the hop.  Time to move on over to Miss Jaylin’s, she’s a young demo wanna be with a creative outlook and sweet projects she puts together from her demo grandmother’s stash of materials.

Thanks for Hopping with the Watercooler Gang!

WCC30 – A Cup of Cheer in 3D

  WCC30 Susan’s 3D Challenge

Welcome to a new Challenge.

This time around we are doing 3D!

 

WCC - Susan's 3D Project

 **************

Whatever trips your trigger as a friend of mine likes to say…if it has several sides or depth to it…you’re in.   And we hope you will join us in submitting your very own 3D creation here.

Here’s my simple 3D treat holder:

WCC30 - Susan's 3D Challenge - Jean Fitch

And a side view so you can see how it all fits together.

WCC30 - A Cup of Cheer - Side View - Jean Fitch

Do you remember this little treat or card holder?  People have been making them for over a decade (possibly more).   Perfect for little gift cards just under 3″ wide and about 3″ – 4″ tall.    Or in this case a little package of teas and sweets…perfect for someone recovering from a cold or flu or other malady.

I’ll let you in on a secret that I discovered years ago…the tea in the picture is Moroccan Mint tea from STASH.  That tea is a wonder drug all on it’s own.  Whether for morning sickness or the upset stomach and dizziness you get from chemotherapy this stuff is magic!   And I can guarantee you that it tastes just like the mint tea that I had in Morocco back in 1975.   The only brand I’ve found that does.  I’m not sure if it’s the lemongrass or the blend of various mint teas or the combination but this stuff is powerful…and very good tasting.   Fun to suck on a peppermint too and hold it in your teeth while you drink the tea through it.   Just don’t let the mint go down the wrong way.  Yeah…been there…done that.

And yeah…I should probably add the disclaimer that I’m not a doctor and take my suggestion with a grain of sense and salt.  It may not work for everyone as I’ve described but I’ve given it to many, many people for whom it did work and used it myself.   And no…I don’t work for STASH or get a commission.  LOL

Are you wondering yet where the stamps and several of the papers came from?   My latest (July) Paper Pumpkin is the source.  Three wonderful sentiments, the cup, tea bags, steam and the plants that you’ll be able to use when the kit contents are gone.    Have you tried that monthly pumpkin delight yet?  Trust me…you will want to.   Especially…because…drum roll please…you can get two months right now for 50% off!

Contact your demonstrator (I’m available if you don’t have one already Click the highlighted text to sign up :D) and ask them about the 50% off offer.   It’s available until September 10th.   Want the August Kit…sign up by August 10th…get going…what are you waiting for…today is the 9th!!!

Here are a few other views of the inside with it open and treats removed.

 Click on the images to see a larger view

 

WCC30 - A Cup of Cheer interior

WCC30 - Cup of Cheer - inside box

Supplies:

Stamps: My Paper Pumpkin July 2015 Kit – Thanks a Latte

Ink:  Early Espresso, Cucumber Crush

Paper: Pool Party, Paper Pumpkin Kit papers and stickers

Punches: Large Oval

Other:  Clip from kit, 1/8″ Gold Ribbon, Whisper White Organza Ribbon, Small Cellophane bag,  tea bags, Stampin’ Trimmer, Dimensionals, SNAIL

It’s a fairly simple construction that you can adapt to any size.   In this case a 3″ x 11″ strip of cardstock that is scored at 4-1/2″ and 6-1/2″.  Use the large oval punch to create the handles near the top.   The small box is 4″ x 5″ and scored at 1″ all the way around on all sides.  Cut along the score line up to the other score line on two sides at both ends.  Fold and crease along score lines and adhere tabs as needed to form the box.   Adhere bottom of box to the inside score area of the long cover piece.  Decorate…tie some ribbon to hold the handles in and fill with your desired contents.

WCC29 – Flap Fold Flowers

WCC29 Bev’s Special Folds Challenge

Welcome to a new Challenge.

This time around we are folding!

Pretty much any kind of card fold little or big.  Simple or intricate.  You decide.   If you have a different idea than the picture…go for it!

Here’s the picture that was provided to encourage the thinking and the MOJO.

Fun-Folds-All-Cards

 **************

Do you believe in kismet, coincidence or just blind dumb luck?   When I encounter that phenomenon I refer to it as inspiration.  LOL

Of course all of that also helped me to create this:

 

WCC29 - Wild About Flowers Flap Fold Card - Jean Fitch - Wild about Flowers & Trust God stamp sets

So how did I get there?

A week or so ago I had this wonderful tutorial by Julie Davison hit my inbox courtesy of SplitcoastStampers Weekly Inkling Newsletter.   Wonderful inspiration every Wednesday.  If you would like to get yours you can sign up for it on the home page of SCS here.  Of course I had to look at the gallery and came across this card (also by Julie Davison):

Tulip Flap Fold Card - Julie Davison

click the picture to see Julie’s post

All of that, the need for a card for the challenge plus a real hankering to play with my brand new stamp set Wild About Flowers put me on the road to creativity.

Needless to say…I had a very fun time learning a new fold and bending my own ideas into the fold parameters as well.   I always like a challenge.  Well duh…that’s why I work on our Wacky Watercooler Challenges. {grin}

I altered Julie’s basic design just a bit.  I added an Old Olive mat layer that creates a thin color border between the Pretty Petals designer series paper and that rather intense Pacific Point paper.  Hard to see in the photo but noticeable in the real card.   Of course I changed the stamps and the punch border but the rest is pretty much Julie’s design.  Now that I’ve done the basic design I have a few ideas for a stepped up version so check back.

Here are a few other views with the card unfolded.   If you don’t recognize the edging tool I used for the front flap…check out your punches.   I created the border with the Decorative Label punch.

Supplies:

Stamps: Wild about Flowers, Trust God, Lovely Amazing You (for the inside and still available for a short time)

Ink:  Old Olive, Pacific Point

Paper: Pacific Point, Old Olive, Very Vanilla Cardstocks.  Pretty Petals Designer Series Paper Stack.

Punches: 2-3/8″ Scallop Circle, 2-1/2″ Circle, 1-3/4″ Circle, 1″ Circle, Scalloped Oval, Decorative Label

Other:  Stampin’ Trimmer, Dimensionals, SNAIL

I love the way the design from the Pretty Petals paper stack mimics the cornflower images I selected.  I’ve had a scrap of this paper sitting on my desk for a while now so not surprising I opted to use it.  I used the flip side to create the vest take out box you saw here.  Stampin’ Up does such a wonderful job of giving us papers and stamps that work so well together don’t you think.  Not to mention the general coordination of colors across many product types.  Love that!   Loving the new catalog too!

Using up the leftovers

I don’t know about you…but I love leftovers.  Especially the kind you can eat.  Makes cooking a meal so much easier.   Many are even good cold.  Nice for these hot days of summer.

Same deal when it comes to papercrafting.  When you have scraps and other leftovers sitting around and taking up space….it’s time to use them up!

If you remember this card from the recent Wacky Watercooler July Hop:

Watercolor Wings Catalog Case - Marker Wash Technique - Jean Fitch

You might be wondering what I did with the leftovers.   After all…since the Fluttering embossing folder is 6″ x 6″ there have to be leftovers right?

Here you go:

Marker Watercolor Wash Bookmark - Jean Fitch

A quick and simple bookmark/tag with the 2″ leftover piece.   I trimmed it down just a slight bit and cut out a backing piece of Blackberry Bliss that was just 1/4″ wider.  Ran them both one at a time through the Ornate punch for a decorative top, fixed up the offset holes with my trusty Crop a Dile and then tied a bit of Sahara Sand Lace for a nice topper.   For a bit of embellishment I added an Itty Bitty punched butterfly with a bit of bling.  Easy Peasy right?  Another option for the punched hole I fed the lace through would be to use one of the hole makers from the Chalk Talk Framelits.  Pity I didn’t have another leftover Fluttering piece to show you that.  Ah well…another day.

And from one book lover to another…while we’re on the subject of bookmarks let me add the following tip.  As pretty as bling is down below…it’s really hard on the books and their pages.  So if you love books…keep your bookmarks as flat as you can and make sure any color you use won’t rub off on the pages.  Save your embellishments for the top portion that can sit above the spine or the pages.

There you have it one more project that used up my leftovers from the Marker Watercolor Wash technique.   To find out how the technique works and see the colors in the supply list, check out the link above to the hop post.  It’s very easy and adds color while you emboss your image.

Now if only I had been able to go to the Stampin’ Up 2015 Convention.  This bookmark would have been a fun swap project don’t you think?  Sigh…maybe in November when I’m hoping to go to the more local Onstage Local Event.  See you next time.

Hugs and blessings –

July Wacky Watercooler Blog Hop: Follow up with Blog Candy and project reveals

Welcome to the July Blog Hop follow up and reveals…not to mention a bit of blog candy!

If you missed the Blog Hop that started last Thursday you can find the full line up here.     And…you can see my original post here.  Trust me when I say you don’t want to have missed this hop.  Some truly wonderful creations were shared that you will want to CASE for Christmas ideas and creations of your own.

*******

Here was my original Every Blessing card:

Every Blessing

Christmas in July!  Every Blessing.  The new silhouette set.

And here is the Men in Black version.   I know…they aren’t wearing sunglasses but I couldn’t resist the title.

Every Blessing - Men in Black - Jean Fitch

I really like the all black header piece.  The gold thread wrapped around the piece really pops don’t you think.  Part of why this version is my favorite.

This also shows the trickiness of photographing black doesn’t it?  I find I have to suppress the flash and play with the lighting.  It also reminded me that one should skip using the embossing buddy when working with black as the residue left behind is much more noticible.   And one other reminder I saw here in this other card….

Every Blessing  Men in Black - Jean Fitch See the star?   If you have long hair…make sure it’s up and out of the way when heat embossing or you’ll get drag marks and even halo looking effects if it moves around in the Versamark and in the gold powder.   A non stamper might not notice but it makes me crazy!   Of course it used to make my Dad crazy too so he was forever cutting my long bangs and long hair – yep…he was the barber of the family when I was a kid.

Every Blessing inside - Jean Fitch

And of course the interior…almost forgot to show you this.   I die cut a star from Very Vanilla and stamped the other sentiment from the set.   Of course you can fancy it up a bit more.  And if, like me, you like to add a bit more than just your signature you can add a quarter sheet of vanilla to the usual area and add the star with sentiment to the upper half of the interior.

Supplies:

Stamps: Every Blessing

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Versamark

Paper:  Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Corrugated Paper (Kraft used though package also includes white)

Punches: Itty Bitty Accents Pack (star)

Other: Big Shot, Chalk Talk Framelits, Star Collection Framelits (for the inside sentiment), Gold Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Gold Metallic Thread, Basic Jewel Rhinestones, SNAIL or Tombow multipurpose adhesive glue, glue dots.

Check back Sunday to see more detail shots and for my Men in Black version and then you can vote for which one you prefer.  Who knows…there may even be a bit of candy involved.  :D

***************************

My next celebration of Christmas in July was a Luminaria.  Or it would have been if I had remembered to bring the little electric candle back from my event so I could take a picture.  Here’s the lit version below the original.  Much better don’t you think?   In real life the sentiment pops…it’s just hard to photograph.

Gentle Peace Star Filled Luminaria

Gentle Peace Star Filled Window Luminaria - Jean Fitch

Gentle Peace Luminaria Card lit - Jean Fitch

And a side view:

Gentle Peace Luminaria side view - Jean Fitch

Here’s the imagination gone awry one:

Gentle Peace Luminaria Curved Sentiment - Jean Fitch

I had the idea that the sentiment should follow the bend of the star.   Not a bad idea per se….the gold embossing just doesn’t show up as well in the gold embossing.  Perhaps if I had stamped it in black it would show.   I love the bendability of the photopolymer stamps and can’t resist featuring that ability…it just didn’t work quite as well as I had hoped in this particular instance.

One other thought about this star design.  If you aren’t happy with the “embossed” impression that the die makes you can cut from the back of the card front and you won’t have that impressed star effect.

Here’s the fun tag/ornament that I created with the star piece that is left over from the design of the card front.   Another opportunity to use lots and lots of the beautiful Metallic Thread that Stampin’ Up brought out in the new annual catalog.

From this:

Blank Ornament Star

To this:

Gentle Peace Star Ornament - Jean Fitch

Simple but fun right?

Supplies:

Stamps: Gentle Peace

Ink: Versamark

Paper:  Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Vellum Cardstock, Corrugated Paper (Kraft used though package also includes white)

Punches: Itty Bitty Accents Pack (star)

Other: Big Shot, WoodGrain Embossing Folder,  Star Collection Framelits, Gold Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Gold Metallic Thread, Basic Jewel Rhinestones, Very Vanilla Seam Binding (retired), SNAIL or Tombow multipurpose adhesive glue, Glue dots.

Can you see the subtle detail I got by running the hardwood stamped section through the Woodgrain embossing folder.  It’s almost something you notice by touch more than by sight.  Still…I like it.

This card was a CASE of one by Carol Payne.  Click on her name and you’ll see her version and a wonderful video showing how she puts it together.

So…I mentioned blog candy right?

Here’s the candy:

Gentle Peace Blog Candy - candle not included

A set of :  Card, ornament, blank star and a few feet of the metallic thread (not shown) to create your own.  Electric candle not included as it’s a pain to ship. :D

To win the candy just drop me a note or a comment here in the post telling me which of the Every Blessing cards you prefer…the one with a vanilla stamped sentiment or the all black version.   Tell me too which of the new or not so new Christmas sets in the new annual catalog you want to work with (pages 68-72).   I’ll use the random number generator to select a winner and get the package out to you once I’ve named the winner and you’ve provided the address.

*******

Thanks for checking back.  Hopefully you’ve enjoyed the background views and new ideas.   As a reward for getting this far along in the post here’s the direction sheets you can download for free for the Christmas projects from my hop post.    They may read a little oddly since they were created for my Christmas in July Stamp Camp where samples were available to see and I was right there to answer questions. :D
