Annual Catalogue 2016

Tin of Cards Thank you Card!!

Hello,

We have only 4 weeks left of the current annual catalogue and there are LOTS OF great product that will be leaving us on May 31. I'm sad to see these products go but I do know that they are exciting new product coming your way in June!! 

My project today showcases the Tin of Cards stamp set! I actually CASE this card right from the Annual Catalogue. Sometime, when I'm searching for inspiration, I always turn to the catalogue to see what the AMAZING Concept Artist did for samples. Sometimes I use the layouts, the colour scheme or I might take a few elements from it but overall these projects are over the top!!!

Celebrate Today!!

Hello,

Have you had a chance to check out the products that will be leaving us on May 31. Some items are already sold out but there is a tons of product still available. You can view the list of products by heading to my ONLINE store. 

As I was prepping for my class this week, I decided that I wanted to showcase a few products that would be leaving us. I wanted to show my customers how fabulous these items are and I don't want them to miss out on ordering them before they are gone for good!!

I'm sad to see the Cucumber Crush and Watermelon Wonder colours go! These were great colours that went with so many different colour combinations!! I hope that SU will bring these back in the future! 

Want to recreate my card, let me show you how with these tips and tricks:

  • My colour combination is Smoky Slate, Watermelon Wonder and Cucumber Crush 
  • Smoky Slate Card stock cut at 5 1/2" by 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
  • Smoky Slate card stock ( 4" by 5 1/4"), embossed with Softly Falling Impression Folder and the Big Shot machine
  • A Little Foxy Friends Designer Series Paper cut to 3" by 4"
  • Whisper White card stock cut to 2 3/4" by 3 3/4"
  • Stamp Ballon image from Celebrate Today with Watermelon Wonder ink. Stamp off on a piece of scrap paper before you stamp onto your White piece. This will give a softer colour for the solid background. 
  • Then using Watermelon Wonder ink again, stamp the dots/stars image at full strength. 
  • Stamp the greeting Celebrate in Cucumber Crush ink near the bottom corner. 
  • Using a stapler, staple the whisper white piece to the pattern paper.  I off set my layers to give a little bit of dimension to it. 
  • Adhere the Smoky slate piece to your card base. Pop up the whisper white/pattern paper with dimensionals. 
  • Create a bow with Whisper White baker twine to your balloon with a glue dot!!

I love that you can use this card for any celebration, maybe a birthday, maybe a card to say congrats you did it, or maybe you are celebrating a success story! Either way, your family and friends would love to receive this card!!!

Floral Phrases Thank you

Happy Monday!!

I hope you had a great weekend! Ours was a busy one but we did manage to have some down time which was nice for a change!

My project today is a CASE from the Annual Catalogue. I love all the samples that the Concept Artist created and I find myself turning to these sample more and more everyday!! Sometime when I start to play with a new stamp set, I will always look in the catalogue to see if there is a sample to CASE!

Happy Happy Birthday Card

Hello,

I love when you can create simply and easy birthday cards to give to family and friends. These are the ones that you can mass produce during one of your papercrafting sessions!!

My project today is one that we created last week in our Simply Occasions Class. My card focuses on the new By The Shore Designer Series Paper and Seaside Textured Impression folder.

Wondering where my greeting is from? One of my must have stamp set is the Perfectly Wrapped stamp set. This little gem of a stamp set coordinates with the Perfectly Wrapped Project Kit, but I LOVE it for all the sayings that are in this stamp set as you can use it for any occasions!!

Touches of Texture Make and Take from the Mediterranean Cruise

Hello,

I finally finished my make and takes from the Mediterranean Cruise a few weeks ago. When we were on the cruise, they had a morning dedicated for a Make and Take session. I didn't make it down to the session as Emily and I decided to go into port to check out Cannes Frances. Since I wasn't able to do them at that time, I was able to bring home the make and take package.

The make and takes focus around the Touches of Texture stamp stamp and the Moroccan Designer Series Paper and Washi tape.

The cool thing about this stamp set is that it's meant to add some texture to your background meaning it's another great grunge stamp set to add to your collection!! There is a variety of 15 different images in this stamp set, and the another neat thing is that you can layer over top of the images for a technique called Collage stamping!!

My one tip for this card is that it's okay to have your images off-centered. I know it's hard for us stampers to do but it's okay to not have perfectly lined up images as it's as add a little bit of character to your project and this stamp set is designed perfectly for us to do that!!

Curious to know what I used on this card, you can view all the supplies listed below in the clickable links.

Sneak Peak: Cookie Cutter Christmas Card

Hello,

It's beginning to look alot like Christmas!! HAHA, do I have you singing that song now? I know I was as I was typing up this post! LOL I'm excited to share with you a sneak peak at some new product that will be available starting on Sept 1 when the new Holiday Catalogue goes live!

As a demonstrator, I was able to pre-order new product from the Holiday Catalogue starting on Aug 2. It's very hard to pick what you want to start with as it's so overwhelming! I decided to go with a few Christmas and Halloween product to start with and then will add to my collection as the time goes on!!

My project today showcases the new Cookie Cutter Christmas Bundle that consist of the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set and the Cookie Cutter Builder punch.

 

DSC_0017 copy

One of my favourite things to do is find a card sketch online and then start creating my project from there. It's like a puzzle just waiting to be solved! On my project today, I used the new Candy Cane Lane Designer Series and the Candy Cane Lane Baker Twine. I would recommend this new product suite called Candy Cane Lane as it's yummy colours of Real Red and Crumb Cake.

 

DSC_0018 copy

I added a bit of clear wink of stella to the white parts on Santa's suit as it just gave the little bit of glimmer that he did to look magical!! Look at the Twine..it's sparkles and is so beautiful!!

You can see all the supplies that I used on my project by clicking the clickable links below. Just a reminder that the Cookie Cutter Bundle ( stamp set and punch), the Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper and the Candy Cane Lane Baker Twine will not be available till Sept 1.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!


Bella and Friends Card

Hello,

It's another hot and humid day here again! It has been like this all summer and to be honestly I'm so ready for cool weather. It's so hot that you can't enjoy the outside unless you are in a pool and even then it feels like a hot tub!!

So I have been taking advantage of these hot days and spending time in my studio creating where it's nice and cool!!

My project today is one that we created last night in our Simply Occasions Class. We used the new Bella and Friends stamp set! I just had to get this stamp set as it reminds me so much of Daisy!!

 

DSC_0050 copy

I just love this saying " You've got a friend in me." You can use this card for any occasions! That is the neat thing about this stamp set, you can use it for so many different occasions!!

DSC_0051 copy

I used my blender pen to colour in the turtle, the dog and grass! I find that when I colour with my blender pens, I have more control of the pen and do a better job of shading from light to dark.

Fresh Fruit Happy Birthday Masking Card

Happy Monday!!

It's been a fun few days around here in our household as we celebrated Alison's sweet 16 birthday yesterday. All she wanted for her birthday was to go to the beach with her friends and to Shaw's for yummy ice cream!! Then today was the day that Corrie took her to get her G1 license. I'm not really sure how this has happened, as it just felt like yesterday that we were holding her for the first time!! We are so proud her and look forward to watching her grow in her next chapters of her life!!

 

IMG_5303

On to my project for the day. Last week we had fun at our technique class learning how to do the Masking technique. This cool technique lets you mask an image and then stamp over it so that your first image looks like its in the front of your other images. We used the new Fresh Fruits stamp set and the gorgeous Fruit Stand Designer Series Paper.

DSC_0006 copy

I'm loving this new Peekaboo Peach Incolour as it pairs so nicely with Pear Pizzaz and Whisper White. Often I get asked how I pick my colours for my cards? Most time I use the list of coordinating colours that Stampin' Up! provides on the back of their designer series packages.

My colour combination:

After each class, I always ask my customers what project was their favourite of the night and why? This was the top on everyone's list last week as they said "they love the colours, and how simple and easy it was!"
