Sending Thought "Latte" Card

Happy Monday!!

Sorry for the late post, I tried to type up my post last night on Typepad, but Typepad's server was down! I hope you had a great weekend, ours was good with a trip to Waterloo to see Emily, some crafting time, some down time and a fun afternoon with my team yesterday at our monthly meeting! 

My card today is a quick and simple one. Sometimes we just have to create this type of card to help us get the stamping MOJO back!!!

I love this time of year..pumpkin everything!! I can't get enough of pumpkin muffins, pumpkin scones and of course there is yummy pumpkin desserts. I have to admit, I'm not a big "Latte" person but I sure LOVE to create with the Coffee Cafe bundle!! This is one bundle that you can use for any occasions!

Of course when you are at the beach, you are going to find tons of seashells and knew that my pages need a few. I used the So Many Shells to help add a few shells around my page. 

I can't wait to create my September calendar pages in the next few weeks and I will be sure to share with you.

Hang your Stocking Christmas Card

Hello,

I know it's hard to think about Christmas when the sun is shining, and I have to be honest with you, I'm not really looking forward to the holiday season this year. The holiday season is ALWAYS my favourite time but this one will be a tough one without Corrie. He always made the holidays extra special for us!! I have been working on samples for my studio and upcoming classes and feel that I can create them right now as we are not in the holiday season mode yet and my emotional are not tugging at my heart yet!! Plus the sun shining does help with the creating!!

My project today is one that we made last month in our first Christmas Stamp a Stack class!. This is a great way to stock up on your cards as you make 10 cards each session (2 each of 5 designs).

I keep these cards simple as I know many of my customers like to mail their cards to family and friends. When adding ribbon, I always tell them it's up to them if they would like to add it to their cards incase they want to mail them!

My colours are 

When I'm selecting colours for my card, I always go with the colour coordination on the pack of the Designer Series Paper Pack. Did you know that SU lists the colours on the pack? This is a handy little too!!

My pattern paper is the "Be Merry" Designer Series Paper pack and it's a great collection of pattern paper as it uses the traditional colours for the holiday season!!

Coffee Cafe Card

Happy Monday!!

Wow, what a fabulous time we had on Saturday at my 1st Demonstrator Training Event. I had 14 ladies join me for a fun filled day of business training, lots of stamping, goody bags, food and of course prize patrol. What is a Stampin' Up! event without prize patrol..that is always our favourite part!!

One of the class that we did at our training event was designed around the Coffee Cafe Bundle. This is my number one go to bundle! And the funny thing...I don't even drink coffee. But I do love a good cold Vanilla Bean Frappuccini from Starbucks!!

DSC_0056

One of the tips that I shared with the ladies at the event was how to create the pool party background along with the black splatter on it. They were all amazed that you could do this with our markers!!

I think my favourite part on this cup is the vellum lid as I feel it just finishes off the cold drink!!

Tranquil Tulips - Hostess Stamp Set

Hello,

I spent some time stamping this weekend as I find it helps with the healing and gets me through those stormy days. I have a pile of stamps that I need to stamp with before they can go on my shelf. One of those stamp set was the new Hostess Stamp set called "Tranquil Tulips." 

IMG_7107

Love, love, love it!! I had to admit that in past catalogues, I usually don't invest in flowers stamps as I feel that I already had to many. But since I put new gardens in this past spring, I have to say my love for flowers have carried over into my crafting!! Just looking at them, puts a smile on my face!!

IMG_7108

My colour combination is Bermuda Bay, Black, Lemon Lime Twist and Peekaboo Peach. This colour combo is fresh and fun! 

Want to recreate my card, you will need the following:

  • Bermuda Bay card stock - 4 1/4 by 11, score at 5  1/4
  • Basic Black card stock - 3 by 4
  • Big Shot Machine and the Garden Trellis Impression Folder
  • Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper pack 3/4 by 4
  • Layering Ovals Framelits - Scallop is in Peekaboo Peach, and then one in Whisper White
  • Lace Doilies
  • Tranquil Tulips Hostess stamp set
  • Lemon Lime Twist and Peekaboo Peach Ink Pads
  • Memento Ink 
  • Daisy Delight stamp set

One tip for the Tulips, is the I stamp the solid image in the Peekaboo Peach ink but before I stamped onto my Whisper White card stock, I stamped off on my grid paper to give it a softer tone on my project. Then I stamped the outline tulip in Peekaboo Peach ink, these helps create the two tone look!!

High Tide Swoosh Technique

Hello,

Last week, while checking out my friend Patty's blog, I came across this cool technique that she showed cased. I thought it really cool and wanted to give it a try. When I saw the technique, I vision a card made with the High Tide stamp set and the swoosh technique behind it. 

IMG_7057

The swoosh technique was done to create my water in the background behind my lighthouse!! This is such a cool technique and I can't wait to share the other card with you!! 

The colours that I used were: Soft Sky, Pool Party and Marina Mist! I love how it looks like the tide is rolling in towards the shoreline.

I stamped the Highlight in Real Red with the solid image and Smoky Slate with the outline image. This creates the shadow effect on the lighthouse! My sand was stamped in Soft Suede and then I add some Old Olive grass randomly over the sand.

Want to recreate my card, you will need the following products: 

  • Pool Party Card stock - 5 1/2 by 8 1/2, score at 4 1/4
  • Pool Party Card Stock - 4 by 5 1/4
  • Dapper Denim Card Stock - 1 by 4
  • Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper Pack - 3 by 4
