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!!

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!! 

I have listed all the supplies that I have used for you at the bottom of this post, and the best part is that you can either click on the clickable images, or the supply list PDF.

Last Day of Sale a Bration!!

Hello,

I can't believe that today is the last day of Sale a Bration!! You still have time to order your favourite Sale a Bration they are gone for good tonight!!

My project today is one that my bestie friend Michelle made a few weeks ago! She was here one night and want to get me back to stamping. So we made this card!!!

So the crazy part of this whole card was that it took her over an hour to cut out each individual hexagon as she wanted to make it look like Chicken Wire!! This card has been a highlight in my studio...the ladies love it!!! 

The funny part after she was done making this card which took her over an hour to make, I told her that I would like 20 more and of course Michelle just laughed at me!!!

Tips on this card: 

  • Michelle inked up the Hexagon Impression folder with Black Memento ink and they ran a piece of paper through the Big Shot. 
  • Then she took a pair of Paper snip and cut out each hexagon to make it look like Chicken Wire
  • Then she cut out the middle of the hexagon as she wanted it to look like her chick was in the middle of the card!

Remember you only have till 11:50 pm tonight to place your last order for Sale a Bration. I have an order going tonight at 8 pm if you would like to add it!! Remember you can also earn Sweet Rewards on your orders placed with me!!

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.

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.

No Bones About It- Birthday Card

Hello,

Today, I'm sharing with you one of the projects that we made last month in our Simply Occasions Class. I'm loving the new Incolours and can't get enough of the Emerald Envy. It's reminds me of my Irish background and the beautiful colours in the that county!! Oh, how I hope that Stampin' Up! will have an Incentive Trip there in the near future!! Now trust me, that is one trip the whole family will be going on!!!

My card uses a layout that I saw on my friend Erica's blog. I really liked the layout that she used on her going places card and thought it would be fun to give it a try.

 

DSC_0009 copy

I used the No Bones about it stamp for my project today. My goal when creating cards is to mix old stamp set in with new product. Plus, I thought it would be great to have some masculine cards on hand for my stash!!

To create my dinosaurs, I only used the Emerald Envy ink pad. For the solid image, I inked my stamp in Emerald Envy and stamped off a few times so I would have a softer tone. Then using the xray image, I stamped in Emerald Envy in full strength so it looks stronger on the image. I love how it turned out!!

I used one of my favourite framelits on this project the Swirly Scribbles. These framelits are a MUST in your collection as you can use them on any theme or occasions!!

You can see all the supplies that I used in this project in the clickable links below.

Snow Place Shaker Card

Hello,

I have another shaker card to share with you. This was the other project that we made in our technique class last week. Our focus for the night was how to create Shaker Cards!! As I was sharing with you yesterday, they are so quick and easy to create especially with the new Foam Adhesives Strips. 

It's been so hot and humid here lately and we are in for another blast the next few days. So I was trying to think of "cool" thoughts and thought it would be fun to create a Christmas Shaker card with one of my favourite stamp sets and matching framelits from last year Holiday Catalogue. I was SO happy when I saw it in new catalogue this year as that means I get to use my favourite "Snowman" again for another year!!

DSC_0029 copy

When I was dreaming of this card in my mind, I knew that I wanted to stick with the cooler colours so went with Dapper Denim, Silver and Whisper White.

This card came together very quickly with the help of the new Layering Circle Framelits and my best friend the Big Shot!!! It you have not seen these new framelits collection, I would encourage you to check them out as there are multiple sizes and layers that you can mix and match for you projects!

Curious to know what I used on my card? You can see all the supplies that I used in this project in the clickable links below.

Jar of Love "For you" card

Happy Monday!!

DSC_0008 copy

Last week was our Simply Occasion class and this is one of the cards that I prepared for everyone. My goal for classes is to showcase some new product mixed with some old product. That way we don't forget about our favourites that carried over into the new catalogue!! This card has a little bit of both on it! The new product is the Burlap Ribbon and the Jar of Love bundle. The old is the Large Polka Dot Textured Impression Folder.

One bundle that I knew that I wanted to showcase was the Jar of Love bundle that features the Jar of Love stamp set and coordinating Everyday Jar framelits dies.

Jar of Love Photopolymer Bundle

Jar of Love Bundle #142342 $69.25

I wanted to keep this card simple and quick so I only added one jar filled with flowers. I used the new burlap ribbon along with my favourite colour combination of Flirty Flamingo, Whisper White, Pear Pizzaz and Sahara Sand.

 

There is so much that you can do with this bundle? Have you checked out pinterest for idea's? I have seen jar's with fruit, fishes, flowers, sand, bugs and so much more!! I think this is one bundle that you can use for any occasion which makes it a great set to have in your collection!!

Foxy Friends Birthday Card

Happy Monday!!

I hope you are having a great day!! Thank you so much for all the sweet comments on my Pop of Paradise Level Card and if you are visiting for the first time to my blog, welcome!! I had so much fun and can't wait for next month's blog hop..it's going to be a really cool fancy fold!! The neat thing about participating in a blog hop, it's makes you think outside the box and pushes you out of your creative zone!!

My project today is a quick and simply card that you can mass produce for birthday or thank you cards. You could easily switch out the greeting for any occasions. I saw this simple design on Mary Fish's blog and knew that I had to recreate it. Now I did switch up the greeting as I wanted to make a birthday card!!

DSC_0040 copy

My greeting is from the new Designer Tin of Cards stamp set. I love the fonts in this set and can see it being used for so many different projects!!

Interesting in knowing what I used on this card, you can see all the supplies that I used in this project in the clickable links below.
