Toile “Cardinal” Season Greeting Card

Hello,

One of my favourite things to do while stamping and crafting is watching the birds outside my front window. I have a bird feeder in my tree on the front yard and I LOVE watching them at it. I have special bird seed that will attract the Blue Jays and Cardinals. Cardinals are very special to me as I know when they are visiting it a visitor from heaven and they represent some very important people in our lives that are no longer with us. So when we see them, we know it’s a sign from them!! 

My cardinal was stamped in Memento Ink onto a piece of Whisper White card stock. Then I used my Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie and Early Espresso Watercolour Pencils to colour him lightly and then using my blender pen, I blend the colours together. I love how he turned out!! 

This is one of those special card that you think..Should I keep it or give it out. What would you do?

Sadly the Purple Posy ink pad and refill are no longer available they were having too many quality issues with it and Stampin’ Up! decided to remove it from their product offering.

Sail Away Swap Card

Hello,

Hope you had a great weekend! It was a busy one around here but I did mange to sneak in some crafting time which is always good for the soul! 

A while back I participated in a swap with some other leaders here in Canada. I had to create 20 cards and then in return I receive 20 different cards back. This is a great way to show off new product in displays for my studio for my customers without having to invest in tons of supplies at the beginning of a new catalogue. 

I LOVE anything Nautical!! Soon as I saw this suite at Onstage it was top on my list to order! There is something peaceful about being near the ocean, and watching the waves come in and out along the shore! 

Helpful Tips for this Card Design!

  • Colour combination is Night of Navy, Balmy Blue, Soft Suede and Whisper White
  • Sail boat and greeting is stamped in Night of Navy ink
  • The birds are stamped in Memento ink
  • Designer Series paper is Come Sail Away 
  • Circles are cut out from the Layering Circle and Stitched Framelit dies and a die cutting machine
  • Twine is the Night of Navy and Sahara Sand combination
  • Trinkets are Sail Away

Just looking at this picture feels peaceful! Do you feel the same way? Will you be adding this suite to your collection?

Need to order supplies: You can either email me your order OR you can head to my ONLINE STORE.  Don’t forget to use the HOSTESS CODE: DTG6QEMG AND if you bump up your order to $50 you will qualify for hostess code special for the month of JUNE. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!!

Best Catch Card

Hello,

We are in the last stretch of the 2018 Occasions and Annual Catalogue sales period. We only have a week left to purchase our favourites before they leave us OR purchase them as part of a bundle. I wanted to let you know that many Bundles from the Occasions Catalogue will be carrying over BUT sadly they won’t be bundles anymore. Meaning you won’t save !0% when you purchase them as a bundle as you will have to purchase the stamp set and dies separately. 

One of the bundles carrying over into the new 2019 Annual catalogue is the Best Catch. This bundle is a perfect one to add to your collection especially if you have guys who love to fish! 

It’s hard to tell from the picture but I did a background wash with Pool Party ink and an Aqua Painter onto a piece of Shimmery White card stock. I stamped the Crackle Paint background onto a piece of Pool Party card stock with Pool Party ink pad. I love the crackled looked! 

My fish was stamped in memento ink onto a piece of Whisper White card stock. Then I coloured it with Mossy Meadows, Old Olive and Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends. I have to admit I struggle a bit colouring my fish but finally after a few attempts I came up with this colour combination! Once I was done colouring, I cut it out the die and a die cutting machine. 

Just a reminder that this Bundle is carrying over BUT you can only get the bundle price till June 3, 2019, so I would suggest if you have not purchased this bundle and it’s on your wish list is to purchase it soon! Don’t forget all Retiring Stamp Sets are while supplies last and sadly some have already sold out.

Need to order supplies: You can either email me your order OR you can head to my ONLINE STORE.  Don’t forget to use the HOSTESS CODE: GZF4UQE3 AND if you bump up your order to $50 you will qualify for hostess code special for the month of May. Just so you know that I have included a picture of the Basic Rhinestones but you will receive a new pack of Noble Peacock Rhinestones. Once I can share a picture of them with you, I will!

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!!

 

 

Piece of Cake Wedding Card

Hello,

Did you know that the Piece of Cake Bundle is carrying over into the new Annual Catalogue? This bundle is featured in the Occasions catalogue and I can tell you that it was so popular at the beginning of the year that we weren’t able to order it. But the good news is, it’s available now and when you purchase it now you will save 10% till June 3, This bundle will be in the new catalogue that starts in June but you won’t be able to purchase it as a bundle. 

The best thing about this bundle is that it has a punch that coordinates with the cakes and cake stands! I love when you can just stamp an image and punch it out with a punch. 

Let me introduce you to the gorgeous colour combination of Smoky Slate, Balmy Blue and the new Incolour of Rococo Rose! When I was designing my project, I knew that I wanted to create a Wedding card and use this new rosie colour. My colour combination came from my Colour Coach! 

Fine Print Details of my Card:

  • Colours are Rococo Rose, Whisper White, Balmy Blue and Smoky Slate card stock
  • Rectangle stitched Dies for my white piece 
  • Images and greeting stamped in Memento Ink 
  • Cake Stand coloured with Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends
  • Cake coloured with Balmy Blue, and Old Olive Stampin; Blends. I used my blender pen and the Rococo Rose ink pad to colour in my flowers on the card

Remember that you can purchase this bundle at 10% discount till June 3, 2019. After that you will have to purchase the stamp set and punch separately.

Need to order supplies: You can either email me your order OR you can head to my ONLINE STORE.  Don’t forget to use the HOSTESS CODE: GZF4UQE3 AND if you bump up your order to $50 you will qualify for hostess code special for the month of May. Just so you know that I have included a picture of the Basic Rhinestones but you will receive a new pack of Noble Peacock Rhinestones. Once I can share a picture of them with you, I will!

The new Incolour Rococo Rose supplies will be available starting on June 4. But if you can’t wait till then, you can add it to your starter kit if you were to join as a demonstrator right now! Head to Join my Team to read about the benefits of being a demonstrator. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!

 

Lovely as a Tree Card

Happy Monday! 

It you have been a Stampin’ Up! fan for many years, you will know that the MOST loved stamp set in the catalogue is the Lovely as Tree stamp set. I have to admit this was one of the first stamp set that I purchase when I became a demonstrator 13 years ago this month. And I have to say it’s still one of my favourites! Its one of those stamp set that you can use for any occasion, or theme! 

Sadly this stamp set is retiring on June 3 2019, so I would suggest if you have not purchased this stamp set and it’s on your wish list is to purchase it soon! Stampin’ Up! will guarantee stamp set till May 24 after this it will be while supplies last. 

On the weekend when I sat down to create my projects for the week, i knew that I wanted to create a project with this set. So I turned to Freshly Made Sketches to find a sketch that would work for my card. 

After searching the website past sketches, I came across this one and knew it would work perfect with the project I had in mind.

I paired the Nature Poem’s Designer Series Paper with the Lovely as a Tree stamp set. I decided that my background colour was going to be the wood grain and then I found 3 different patterns to go with it. I love when my card turns out how I thought it would be! 

Need to order supplies: You can either email me your order OR you can head to my ONLINE STORE.  Don’t forget to use the HOSTESS CODE: GZF4UQE3 AND if you bump up your order to $50 you will qualify for hostess code special for the month of May.
