The Wisteria Wishes bundle is one of my favourites from the new Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue.

You can find it on page 92. Once you give this bundle some love, you will continue to love it and all the ways you can use it.

Item #158860  $65.50 in Canada


You can use it as Wisteria as I did in THIS CARD I shared yesterday, or as lupine type flowers or even trees!  Can you imagine a beautiful Christmas card made using the wisteria blooms as trees?


I can't wait to give that a try.

Wisteria Wishes Card With Blending Brushes

Hi Friends!

Today's card was inspired by one I saw by Clare Adamson. She sponged the Wisteria flowers and I loved the look so I created my own version of her card.

This is what I did on the inside....

I sponged the wisteria flowers in Highland Heather, then stamped the smaller one over top using Gorgeous Grape. And die cut one set from Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape.This die cut flower is popped up on dimensionals on top of one of the sponged ones.

The leaves are stamped in Granny Apple Green in the background, I then used a blending brush to add some more Granny Apple Green at the top. Then I die cut 2 sets of leaves out of Mossy Meadow and added them on top.

The metallic ribbon is Orchid Oasis and looks great on the card.

The sentiment is stamped in Gorgeous Grape then die cut with a die from the Stitched Rectangle dies. Then I finished off with some Glossy Dots in Gorgeous Grape.

Inside I stamped the leaves also in Granny Apple Green, and did the same sponged wisteria flowers as I did on the front.

This card is all built with Basic White cardstock - 8-1/2 x 5-1/2 for the base, 5-1/4 x 4 for the bottom layer on the front and the inside piece. And the art piece is 5-1/8 x 3-7/8.

A stunning card that is not too difficult to do. I hope you enjoy it!

Pretty In Pink for Miss Maggie!

Hi Friends!

Our Grand Daughter recently had her 2nd birthday. It's been a tough couple of years and we have missed so much of this precious little girls life with not being able to travel to visit her and her brother Blake, as often as we would have liked.

 But we made sure we went for birthday #2! Nothing was going to stop us this time.

Last year our province was on fire and we couldn't get from where we live to where they live.  Then we were going to visit in December for Blake's birthday, and our province was flooded and terrible land slides. So we didn't make it then either.

I created this cute pink birthday card for Miss Maggie. It does use some retired products, but I thought you would like to see it anyways.

They live in a rural area and she loves to make the sound of a cow. So I was excited when I remembered the cow in the Peek-a-Boo Farm stamp set.

Thanks for visiting today.

Welcome to our Trip Achievers Blog Hop for June!

I am excited to show you this Bay Window fold card I created using the Nature's Prints bundle and Sun Prints designer paper.

Here's the front of the card. I used Thick Basic White for the wreath and it stands up quite nicely when the card is propped open.

And this is how it looks from the top. You can see how this lovely fold works.

Tip Thursday - How To Maintain Your Acrylic Blocks

 Hi Friends!

Do your acrylic blocks get mungy and the stamps start falling off? 

This is due to residue from your hands, the Stampin' Spritz used to clean the stamps, and everyday use.

I have 2 videos on how to maintain your blocks.

The first one is how to clean the blocks ....

The second one is how to mount the stickers on your clear mount stamps and how to maintain your blocks.

Thanks for visiting, have a wonderful day.

I created this card for a recent Sunday Fun Stamping Day. 


I used the Sweet Songbird stamp set and coordinating Bird Builder Punch.

The new In Colours make this card so sweet and fun.

I will be holding another Sunday Fun Stamping Day again in September.

We started at 11 am, did some Fun Stamping, played some Fun Games, gave away lots of Fun Prizes, ate some Fun Food and everyone received a Fun Goodie Bag.

Thank you to everyone who came and made the day so special.

I am thinking of doing a Virtual one as well. What do you think?????

BOGO Card Video Tutorial!

 Hi Friends!

I recently held a virtual BOGO sale with all the retired Stampin' Up! products that I had lovingly stored over the past 3 years.

It was not only a BOGO sale. I collaborated with 2 of my Team Members and we did live stamping demonstrations a couple of Chit Chat sessions where we discuss products in the new catalogue.

My live stamping demo was how to create this gorgeous card .....

I used the Split Card Textures dies to create it, and they make a beautiful card in less than a "minute".

Just die cut some cardstock and slip a colour in behind and voila! you got a beautiful card. You could even just add a sentiment and be done.

If you would like to see how I created it, please watch the video below.

Waves Of Inspiration - A Cased Card

 Hi Friends!

I received this card in a swap with my Silver Sisters. We are a Canada wide group of friends and fellow demonstrators. We support, encourage, and share everything and it's wonderful to have a non-judgemental group of amazing women that have my back!

This card is by the talented Barb Stewart, and it is a big hit.

I shared pictures a while ago and was asked to do a live demonstration on how to create this card.

I would love it if you would visit the video below to see how to re-create your own.

It uses the now retired waves designer paper in the background, but you could use any designer paper, or stamp background yourself.

It also uses the now retired waves foil and embellishments. But, you got it, use what you have and create this card for any occasion.

Please watch the video below to see how I created it. If you enjoy the video, please consider subscribing to my YouTube Channel so you don't miss any of my videos, tutorials and Live Stamping. Once you have subscribed, click on the bell icon to get notification when I add to my channel.
