Evergreen Elegance Christmas Card

Happy Monday! 

Hope you are having a great start to your week! It’s another hot and humid day here which means it’s a great day to stay in the craft room and create! 

Today, I’m sharing a project that I made a few weeks ago with my team during our weekly Tuesday Stamp and Chat session. Each week in our team group, I will go live with weekly updates and share a stamping project with them! It’s a great way for us to connect and stamp together! 

Sometimes when I sit down to create, I always look through the Stampin’ Up! Catalogue to see if there is a card layout that inspires me. The Concept Artist Team samples are amazing and most times I find one that will inspire me for my next card project. My inspiration for my project came from a card that I saw on page 80 as it was a sample in the Bloom Where You’re Plant Suite. I decided to use the layout for my Evergreen Elegance Card. 

My stripes of pattern paper is from the Tidings of Christmas 6 by 6 paper pack. I’m loving the colour of Soft Succulent with Evening Evergreen and Cherry Cobbler. I think this might be my favourite colour combination for the holidays! The best part is that this paper is on sale right now for 15% off! Yes, you can stock up and save on this paper till Aug 2, 2021.

Penguin Place Friend Cards – Global Design Project #300 – Case the Designer

Happy Friday! 

Hope you are having a great start to your weekend! It’s been a rainy day here which meant it was the perfect day to spend sometime in my studio! Since it was raining, I decided to do a pop up Facebook Live on my Stamp with Anne Business Page featuring a sneak peak from the new July to December Catalogue that will start on Aug 3rd.

Introducing the new Penguin Place Bundle. OMG…these penguins are adorable and I can’t stop stamping and creating with them. The best part is they have a coordination punch that goes with it. 

I decided to play along with this week’s CASE the Designer Challenge over at Global Design Projects. This was Project #300. When you CASE the designer you can choose to CASE  the layout, colour scheme, the theme or image and then make it your own. I really like the background wash and thought it was the perfect place to start with my CASE. 

How adorable are these wintery friends?? So you are probably wondering where the adorable animals come from? They come from the new Penguin Playmate Designer Series Paper that will be part of the second Sale-A-Bration that will run from Aug 3rd to Sept 30. You can choose this paper with every $60 order during SAB (Sale-A-Bration)

Freezin Fun Bubble Technique – More Cards to Share

Hello, 

Thanks for all the comments on my Monday Night Crafting Session. I’m really having fun creating and stamping with you each week. With all the lockdowns and restricts in place, I’m missing my in-person classes and I thought if you can’t come to me then I will bring stamping to you! 

This past Monday night in our weekly Monday Night Crafting Session, I share how to create a background using re-inkers, water and dish soap. The neat thing about this technique is that no two background will be the same. Want to learn how to do this, head this post to read about it where you can watch a video on how I made it. 

I wanted to share a few more cards that I made with this technique and the Freezin Fun Bundle. 

This is one bundle that will be staying in my retired stash! These little critters are so cute and you can use them for so many different projects! Sadly the Freezin Fun Bundle is retiring on Jan 4, but good news it’s still available, so order yours before they leave us on Jan 4th!

Bubble Technique Background with Freezin Fun Bundle – Monday Night Crafting Session #3

Hello, 

Last night in our Stamp with Anne Facebook Group, we had our weekly Monday night crafting session. This is the third week in a row that we gather together via a Facebook Live to create a project. I love doing it in my community as it’s a great way to connect with my fellow stampers! Want to join my community, click here. 

Last night I share with them how to create a unique background with bubbles. This is a throwback technique and one that is so easy to do. All you need is re-inker, dish soap, a cup, water and straw. When creating my project I knew that it would be perfect background for the Freezin Fun bundle. 

The cool thing about this technique is that no two projects will be the same as each one creates an unique background depending how you do it! Plus you can make them lighter or darker depending on how much re-inker you use in your bubble/water solution.

Which cute little critter do you like? I love the Penguin, the Seal and the Bunny as those are my favourite from the set. Plus the tree is the perfect tree for winter projects! 

Want to create this project, here are the measurements for you: 

  • Balmy Blue Card Stock – 5 1/2″ by 8 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″
  • Misty Moonlight Card Stock – 4″ by 5 1/4″
  • White Card Stock – 3 3/4″ by 5″  

You will also need white card stock scraps, thick white card stock scraps, Stampin’ Blends for colouring, Freezin Fun Bundle, and Stampin Cut and Emboss machine. I have listed all the supplies that I used for this project below.

Tomorrow I will be sharing a few more cards done with this technique!

Merry Christmas!!

Merry Christmas!! 

Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas! I hope that your day is filled with peace, love and that you are staying safe. I know that Christmas 2020 looks very different for many of us and that many of us can’t do our annual traditions of getting together with family and friends. 

I hope you find today filled with new traditions and memories as you spend time with your family. As I write this post the snow is falling out the window, and it’s the first white Christmas we have had in a long time!! Honestly, it’s so beautiful! 

From our family to yours we wish you a very Merry Christmas and wishing you all the best for 2021!!! 

Merry Christmas,

Tag Buffet Project Kit

Happy Christmas Eve! 

It’s hard to believe that Christmas is almost here and that we are actually in the month of December with this crazy 2020 year we have had. Some months felt extra long and others flew by quickly! Yesterday, I spent some time in my studio listening to Christmas music and creating the afternoon away. 

One of the projects that I was working on, was this Project Kit from Stampin’ Up! This kit is called the Tag Buffet and it creates 30 gorgeous tags, you get 5 each of 6 different designs. My wrapping is all done for this year but I will be using these for my presents in 2021. 

The first thing that I did was take all the pieces out of the cardboard and lay them out on my desk. 

Once, I had all the pieces sorted out the next step was to create piles of each tag. All the pieces were put together that I would need for that tag so once I began to assembling them it would be quick.  Before, I assembled each tag, I stamped all the greetings for each individual tag. For this project kit, you would need the Tag Buffet stamp set, Shaded Spruce, Garden Green and Real Red ink pad. 

This project kit was simply and quick and in less then an hour, I had 30 gorgeous tags that I can use for my gift giving next year.  

FLASH ALERT!!!!This project kit is on SALE right now for 50% off, yes that is correct, you can purchase this kit for only $20.50 if you are here in Canada. I actually placed an order yesterday afternoon and ordered extra of these kits as I few projects in mind with them.
