Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue Tea Party

Hello Friends!

Yesterday was my annual Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue Tea Party for 2016.  Every time we get a new catalogue I have a Tea Party, they are so much fun.

Here are some pictures from the set up ....



Part of the display board with lots of new products and ideas!



Another view of the displays.


I made these cute Santa paper clips for everyone who came.  They are attached to the new catalogue and hold the Wish List, Bundle List, and a Treasure Hunt sheet to the catalogue.

So much fun!  Next time, why don't you join us?

EMAIL ME if you would like a copy of the Canadian Stampin' Up! 2016 Holiday Catalogue, or you would like to place an order, or if you have not yet received your Stampin' Up! 2016-17 Annual Catalogue.  I will be happy to help you.

Irresistibly Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends!

Every time Stampin' Up! comes out with a pack of Designer Paper that is created for the "emboss resist" technique, I jump right in and order it, and this package is no exception.


I sponged some of the new 2016-18 In Colours on this piece for the card front.  I used Sweet Sugarplum, Peekaboo Peach and Flirty Flamingo.  When doing this technique, you sponge the colours on in a circular motion using quite a bit of pressure.  Start with the lightest colour, and work to the darkest.  Make sure you leave lots of white space when you put on the first colour, then fill in a bit of it with the second, and finally fill in the remaining white space with the last colour.  Some colours are ok if you overlap them, but some with go "muddy" and you don't want that, so test them on a scrap of card stock first.  When doing this you may have to reink your sponge and go over that section a few times to get the depth of colour you are looking for.

Once you have sponged the whole piece, get a soft tissue and wipe over the entire thing again. This will remove any excess ink that is clinging onto the embossed (white) pattern.  There you have it, a wonderful background for any card.  And you can do any colour combination you want.

I finished this card off with the Botanical Garden dies and used the same colours as the ink, with an addition of Pear Pizzazz for the leaves.  Some White Perfect Accents finished it off.  The circular die cut strip behind the flowers is from the Flourish dies, another great set from the Annual Catalogue. You will find all the supplies listed below.  Thanks for visiting!

Stampin' Up! Butterfly Collage card share

Hello Friends!

Every once in a while I like to make a collagy type of card.  These are so fun to make and I just let myself go with the flow of what is developing on the card.

To start these cards I choose a focal image first - this time it was the black butterfly.
Then I choose the stamp sets to use on the background
Next comes the colour scheme

First I sponge the colour on to a piece of Shimmery White cardstock, then I stamp the images on top of the sponging.
I stamped the sentiment right on the stamped / coloured piece
Then I ran it through the Big Shot using the Fluttering embossing folder to add even more texture


This was then layered onto some Marina Mist cardstock
A bit of Sweet Sugarplum ribbon wraps around the two layers and then everything was attached to a Thick Whisper White card base.
At the end I added the butterfly and put a string of Basic Rhinestone Jewels for his body and for the bling. Because, you know, no card is complete without bling, right ?????

I used:
  Stamps:  Gorgeous Grunge, Timeless Textures, Love and Affection
  Ink:  Memento, Pear PIzzazz, Marina Mist, Sweet Sugarplum
  Cardstock:  Thick Whisper White, Marina Mist, Shimmery White
  Other:  Fluttering Embossing Folder, Butterfly Dies, Sweet Sugarplum Ruched Ribbon

Give this technique a try and let your inner self out!  CLICK HERE to place an order. Or EMAIL ME and I would be happy to place your Canadian order for you.
This month's Host Code is MQXMT2V3 I would appreciate you using it when you place your order. If your order is $200 (Canadian) or more, please don't use the code as your order qualifies for Stamping Rewards.

Stampin' Up! Starfish On A Beach card share

Hello Friends!

Sometimes I find a card (or two, or more LOL) I feel the need to case.  CASE stands for Copy And Share with Everyone.

Here is a card by Amy Koenders from Stamp With Amy.  When I saw it I had to make it right then and there.  Sigh, so much for cooking dinner, my Hubby had to do it again.  But then what else is new, right?


We live on the west coast of Vancouver Island, BC, Canada and starfish used to be a common sight.  A couple of years ago a lot of the starfish and sunfish got a virus that killed them and turned them into jelly.  It was very sad to see bare rock where hundreds of these beautiful creatures used to cling on.  But, luckily, they have started coming back again and talk about a wonderful sight.

The supplies I used are:
  Cardstock:  Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Whisper White, So Saffron
  Ink:  Marina Mist, Crumb Cake, Whisper White Craft, So Saffron, Calypso Coral, Soft Suede
  STamps:  PIcture Perfect, Gorgeous Grunge, Timeless Textures
  Other:Stampin' Sponges, scrap of copy paper to make the mask for the beach / water, Wink of Stella
      Glitter Brush - Clear

Here is what the Picture Perfect stamp set looks like ...

It is another Two Step Stamping set and has some wonderful sentiments in it.  Don't you love the sentiments that have 2 different fonts on one stamp?

CLICK HERE to go to my online store to order this set for yourself.  Please use Host Code MQXMT2V3.  Or you can EMAIL ME and I would be happy to place your Canadian order for you.

Stampin' Up! Gift of Love Host Set card share

Hello Friends!

I don't always get the Host (ess) sets from the Stampin' Up! catalogue, but this Annual Catalogue has some amazing Host sets in it.

I made this card and used a bit of masking to make the flower image double stemmed instead of single stemmed.


I stamped the image onto a large post it note and cut out just around the left side.  I stamped the bottom image on the cardstock first, then applied the "mask" over top of it.  This allowed me to stamp the second image (the top one) over top of the first image and make it look like the flower is multi stemmed.  A bit of colouring with Many Marvelous Markers and it was done.  This would make a great sympathy or birthday card too.  I layered the whisper white stamped piece onto a piece of Wild Wasabi card stock then onto a thick whisper white card base.  It is flat and easily mailed.  I used Peekaboo Peach to stamp the colour into the flower image.



This stamp set is called Two Step Stamping because you stamp it in multiple steps.  First the outline image, then the colour for the flowers and leaves / stems.

Give Masking and Two Step Stamping a try.  CLICK HERE to place an order.  If your order is over $200 Canadian, you can order this stamp set as part of your Stamping Rewards.  Or EMAIL ME and I would be happy to place your Canadian order for you.  If you order through me, I will send you the recipe to create this card at home.

This month's Host Code is MQXMT2V3 I would appreciate you using it when you place your order. If your order is $200 (Canadian) or more, please don't use the code as your order qualifies for Stamping Rewards and then you can order the Gift Of Love stamp set.

Stampin' Up! Botanical Blooms Pop Up Box Card

Hello Friends

I am off tomorrow to visit family then on to my Team Member, Laverna.  She lives a lllooonnnggg way from me and we only get to get together every 4 or 5 years. 

When I told her I was going to visit, she asked if I would do a class with her and her Stampin' Ladies. Of Course!  She asked for a Pop Up Box card.  It's been a while since I created on of these, and I had almost forgotten how fun they are to make.


This is what I came up with. I used the Botanical Blooms stamp set and co-ordinating Botanical dies.  The wonderful designer paper is from the Affectionately Yours package and I added some Daffodil Delight cardstock to the outside of the fold up flaps.  You can just see it peeking out under the left flap.

The base is made out of a 12 x 6" piece of whisper white cardstock.  Here's the template to make the card base ...



Here is the rest of the recipe:
Cucumber Crush 5-3/4 x 2-1/2 (2 pieces)
Affectionately Yours DSP:
   Yellow/Green print  2-1/2 x 2-1/4 (3 pieces)
   Floral print  2-1/2 x 3-1/4 (3 pieces)
Daffodil Delight 2-1/2 x 2-1/4 (3 pieces), 2-1/2 x 2-1/2
Whisper White 5-1/2 x 3-1/4 , 1-1/2 x 3-1/4 (2 pieces), 1 x 3-3/4 (2 pieces) scored at 1 and 3-3/4
Watermelon Wonder 1-1/2 x 3 (2 pieces), 2 x 4-1/4

Tools I used:  Layering Ovals dies, Botanical Blooms stamp set, Botanical dies, Floral Affection embossing folders, Sunburst Sayings stamp set
Inks:  Cucumber Crush and Watermelon Wonder

Here are a couple of other views of the card ....


This is the inside where the 1 x 4-3/4" white pieces are folded and added to create the foundation to add the flowers and leaves.


This is when it is folded. It is very important to ensure nothing sticks out beyond the "borders" when folded or you won't get it into your envelope.  I use a 6 x 6 envelope for these cards.


This is the back where you would put your writing.  I used Fabulous Flora (Host set) in Watermelon Wonder ink to jazz it up a bit.  I also put this image on the envelope.

I hope this inspires you to create a Pop Up Box card of your own.  CLICK HERE to go to my website and order these products in Canada. Please use Host Code MQXMT2V3 and I will send you a copy of my tutorial for a Pop Up Box card.  If you prefer, EMAIL ME and I would be happy to place your Canadian order for you.

Racing Car Card Share - Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends!

My sister asked me to make her a grad card for friend's son. She said "BMW, racing car, drift cars". Hmmm I said.  Then I remembered this great retired stamp set called Need For Speed and this is what I came up with.  I did case it from Pinterest ....


I think this card suited the requirements, don't you?  Itt was a lot of fun as I also got to use the retired stamp set Off The Grid for the background.

So much fun to dig the special retired stamp sets I will always hang on to and create a special card for my sister.

Colours are Real Red and Pumpkin Pie.  I fussy cut the car out so it popped up off the card front.

Shaker Card - Jar of Love Bundle

Hello Friends!

Today I have a Shaker Card to share with you.  I shared the video by Stampin' Up! on how to make these fun inter-active cards HERE.


The supplies I used are listed below with clickable links to my online store.

I used a soft sky card base, then layered the calypso coral and a piece of By The Shore designer paper on top.  The jar is die cut out of some very vanilla cardstock and a piece of window sheet is adhered to the back.  The sentiment is stamped in dapper denim and is from the Birthday Banners stamp set.  The background behind the window is soft sky with the fish from Jar of Love stamp set stamped randomly in soft sky ink. The fish are stamped in dapper denim and calypso coral and die cut using the Everyday Jars dies.  I added them and some metallic sequins to the shaker part and adhered everything together. Then mounted it on the prepared card base.

These cards are really fun to make, but Oh My, they are more fun to play with and make the shaker pieces jump all over.

CLICK HERE to go to my Canadian online store to order these supplies for yourself, or EMAIL ME and I would be happy to place your Canadian order for you.  Don't forget the Bonus Days promotion happening until July 31st.  See that information HERE in this blog post.

EDITED: this card was cased from Barb Tripps
