Dashing Deer Card Share

Hi Friends!

This is one of the cards we made at the Sunshine Club Seniors Stamp Crafts.  It's a Christmas card using the Dashing Deer bundle and the oh so gorgeous Joyous Noel Specialty Designer Series Paper.

This is one of my favourite bundles from the 2018 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue.  And the Joyous Noel Specialty paper has copper highlights on one side of every sheet in the package!

Just look at those gorgeous patterns!  This paper has been used a lot on recent projects and will continue to be my favourite paper in the catalogue. (click on the image above to go to my online store for more information).

I added some Copper Foil along with Tranquil Tide and Early Espresso cardstock. The deer is stamped in one of the new colours Merry Merlot.  The Early Espresso die cut is cut with one of the 3 dies in the Delicate Lace die set.

If you have any questions, please EMAIL ME, I would love to hear from you.
Any details on the products can be found on my ONLINE Canadian Store.  If you don't already have a Canadian Demonstrator, I would be happy to send you a catalogue and pleased if you would choose me as your Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.

I hope you have a special day!

Waterfront Masculine Card

Hi Friends!

The best part about being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator - besides my customers - is meeting and getting together with Demos all over the world.  Whenever we get together we usually swap cards and I always get some amazing cards to showcase our great products.

I received this card from my friend and fellow Canadian Demonstrator, MiRan Bigrigg.  She makes some of the best cards, and they seem effortless on her part.  I decided that I would love to do this card with my Sunshine Club Seniors Group of Stamp Crafters.

Isn't this a wonderful card?  It uses the Waterfront stamp set to create a beautiful scene of outdoors.  She used the Woodland embossing folder to emboss only half of the Crumb Cake card base, and the Pinewood Planks embossing folder for the Early Espresso layer.  I changed a couple of things, but mostly the card is as she made it.

The ink colours I used are Soft Suede, Garden Green, Granny Apple Green, Balmy Blue, Early Espresso, Crumb Cake and Blackberry Bliss.  I love how this stamp set is Photopolymer and you can see right through it so you know exactly where you are placing it.  It makes scene building very easy and stressfree!

If you have any questions or comments, please EMAIL ME!  If you would like to see the products available in the Canadian Online Store please CLICK HERE.

I hope you had a special day!

2nd Annual Stamp Out Breast Cancer Fund Raiser Event

Hi Friends!

Last weekend my Team of amazing Demonstrators and I held our 2nd Annual Stamp Out Breast Cancer Fund Raiser.

We get together with wonderful Stampers and stamp cards all day.  There is lunch, snacks, refreshments, raffles and door prizes.  Here are some pictures of the day ...

We had a wide range of stampers from brand new to seasoned, and everyone had a wonderful time.  We are so blessed to be able to donate over $1700 (Canadian) to the Canadian Cancer Society earmarked for breast cancer research!

Thank you, Ladies, for making our day special and joining us for this event.  We are already planning our 3rd Annual Stamp Out Breast Cancer Fund Raiser in October 2019!  Hope to see you there!

Have a special day

Timeless Tidings Card Share

Hi Friends!

Whew, where has October gone?  It seems to be flying away just like summer did.  It is almost Halloween and time to get the goodies ready.  We don't usually have any trick or treaters except for our local Grandchildren, but I always get some ready just in case. We also send treats to our out of town Grandson too.

My card for you today is what my stampers affectionately call "GMO" which stands for Glenda Mollet Original.  Sometimes this does happen!

I set out to make a card that can be used for young and old alike.  There is nothing "cutsie" on it, but it has a heart warming sentiment on it.  The designer paper is the gorgeous Joyous Noel Specialty designer paper with copper highlights on each sheet.  Then I added the Merry Merlot/Copper reversible ribbon to it.  The main colour of the card is Cherry Cobbler, then I added some black and white to it in the circles.

The stamped images are from the Timeless Tidings stamp set, then I coloured in the flowers and berries with a Clear Wink Of Stella Glitter Brush and a bit of Cherry Cobbler ink on an acrylic block.

There is a list of supplies below my signature, just click on any of them to go to my Canadian Online Store for more information.

Spirited Snowman Card Share

Hi Friends!

Don't you just love snowmen?  All types of snowmen? My favourite is the one from Frozen - Olaf! He is just so cute.  This year Stampin' Up! brought out a stamp set called Spirited Snowmen.  It is just a stamp set, it has no dies that go with it, just the stamps.

They are so cute, and I love how they are all "in motion".  Two of our Grandsons are in skating and they are planning on making a Christmas card for their instructors using the skating one.

I cased this card from page 38 of the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue.  They did theirs in greens but I chose to use Pool Party instead. The colouring is done with Stampin' Blends, so the stamping is done with Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad.  If you look real close, you can see that I outlined the image with Light Pool Party Blends.  In alcohol marker world this is usually done to provide a bit of grounding and interest to the image.  There isn't any blending/shading on this guy as the spots of colour are too small.  But I did cover him in Wink Of Stella Clear Glitter and he is sooooo blingy!  I also used the Dark Pool Party to colour the rhinestones before I adhered them to the card.  But putting them on clear works as well.

The sentiment is from the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set available in the Annual Catalogue, and it is stamped in Real Red.  A complete list of supplies is below my signature. Just click on any of the images to go to my Canadian Online Store for more information or to place an order.  If you place an order under $200 Canadian, please use the Current Host Code located on the right side of my blog up near the top in a brightly coloured box. I will email you 12 card tutorials as my Thank You!  If your order is over $200, don't use the code as your order qualifies for Stampin' Rewards (FREE stuff)!

Or you can EMAIL ME and I am happy to help you place your order, or answer any of your questions.
