Happy Thanksgiving, Canada!

Paisley and Posies Watercolor

 

Happy Thanksgiving!

 

I want to take time today to thank you – my customers, team members and friends  – for your support of my Stampin’ Up! business for the past 15 years.

It has been a privilege to get to know so many of you over the past 15 years. The sentiment on the card expresses it best. I am thankful, grateful and blessed.

I look forward to stamping with you for many years yet to come. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if there is every any way I can help you.

 

Enjoy the holiday today spent with family and friends.

 The Petal Garden Cardstock Pack includes the Thick Whisper White for your card bases. For this card, I created the first layer with the Petal Garden Designer Series Paper and the top layer with cardstock placed under the stamped image.

 

 

Graceful Garden Watercolor

 I coloured the images with a heavy application of ink leaving white space and then spritzed gently with water so the colours ran just a bit.

Holiday 2017 Sneak Peek: Spooky Cat

Stampin' Up! Spooky Cat

 

Here is my first Halloween card for the year. When buying for Halloween, I look for versatility – can I create cards, projects,tags and treats? I want a stamp set that can do it all. 

Spooky Cat is a set of 18 stamps that includes a tag, greetings, witches’ hat, owl and of course, the cat. And best of all, a matching Cat Punch that can be used year round.

I kept with a circle theme for the card and used the Polka Dot Basics Embossing Folder (143709) and Stitched Shapes Framelits (145372) to create the background.

Spooky Cat Punch and Stamps

 

I used some other new products from the Holiday 2017 catalogue on this card in addition to Spooky Cat stamp set and Cat Punch – can you spot the Black Rhinestone Jewels and Spooky Night Designer Series Paper (hint: the banner, the cat and the hat!)

 

 

  My list of retired Stampin’ Up! products has been updated.

Did You Do Something Creative Today?

 Crafting Forever by Stampin' Up!

 

Why do you create? To get away and have some quiet time? The satisfaction of a finished project? To forget the stress of the day? Time out with fellow stampers? This sentiment from the Crafting Forever stamp set covers it all – Do Something Creative Every Day.

 

I stamped the pens and greeting from Crafting Forever (wood 143955, clear 143958) with Basic Black ink and then added the three stripes of color with images from Happy Celebrations (143012). If you haven’t check out this stamp set yet there are some great background stamps included in this set. And don’t forget the matching Celebrations Duo Embossing Folders (142760).

The ink colours used were Lemon Lime Twist, Bermuda Bay and Calypso Coral. To finish the card, I added the greeting on a piece of cardstock made with the Pretty Label Punch (143715) and complementary coloured sequins from the Iridescent Sequin Assortment (144212).

This Little Piggy Makes Me Happy

This Little Piggy by Stampin' Up!

 

Don’t judge me but I love pigs. In fact one of the very first gifts my husband gave me was a stuffed pig. His name is Norman and he sits on my desk.

So … can you guess which stamp set was near the top of my new catalogue wish list? Yep. This Little Piggy. I love these little guys. This is a set of 9 that includes four oh so adorable pigs as well as some cheerful fonted (is that even a word?) greetings for both the inside and outside of your cards.

Looking for a stamp set that isn’t just like the ones you already own … This Little Piggy is it.

This Little Piggy Watercolor Card

 

I stamped the pig with ink from the Basic Gray Archival Pad and then coloured the body with Powder Pink ink and a Blender Pen. The rest of the card was coloured with Basic Gray, Wild Wasabi and So Saffron markers from the Many Marvelous Markers set.

The card is Early Espresso with a middle layer of Whisper White and a top layer of Powder Pink from the Fresh Florals Designer Series Stack.  The stack includes 40 sheets in all five of the new In Colors and I’ve used it a lot.

Next, I added a 1" wide strip of the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack and a 2-1/2" x 2-3/4" square of Shimmery White cardstock that was stamped with the piggy – both also layered onto Early Espresso cardstock.

If Life Gives You Lemons …

Lemon Zest by Stampin' Up!

 

You won’t mind life’s lemons if they’re the Stampin’ Up! variety.

This card was made with the Lemon Zest Bundle which pairs the stamp set with Lemon Builder Punch. The colours are Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz and Basic Black.

The top layer of the card was embossed with the new Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. This folder is really versatile and creates a background that can be used often.

I punched the lemons twice in each of Daffodil Delight and Pear Pizzazz adding the greeting to one of the lemons.  After putting all of the pieces together I added two Rhinestone Basic Jewels and two loops of Basic Black 3/8" Shimmer Ribbon. This ribbon has just a touch of shimmer that adds elegance to any card.

Lemon Zest Stamp Set and Lemon Builder Punch

 

Closed the card measures 5-1/2" tall by 3-3/4" wide. The circle with the attached lemons is adhered to the card so that is measures 4-1/4" wide and fits a medium envelope.
