Stamp Out Breast Cancer Event

Hi Friends!

On Saturday we had our First Annual Stamp Out Breast Cancer fund raiser.  We raised money to go towards Breast Cancer Research.

My amazing team of Craft Room Stampers did a wonderful job of creating 6 cards and hosting some avid Stampers all to support 2 of our team members (and one member's Mom) who are all Breast Cancer survivors.

Thanks to their dedication, kindness and generosity, we were able to raise $1,241.00!!!  A cheque for that amount will be donated to the Canadian Cancer Society and ear marked for Breast Cancer Research.

Here are some pictures from Saturday ....



Thank you everyone who helped and joined us.  We are looking forward to the Second Annual Stamp Out Breast Cancer Event in October 2018!!!

Have a Crafty Day!

Santa's Suit Card Class

Hi Friends!

Yesterday two fabulous groups of Stampers gathered at my studio to create 3 cute cards using the Santa's Suit bundle.  We created 3 cards, and boy are they cute!

The top on was inspired by Erica Cerwin from Pink Buckeroo, and the middle one is a case from her as well.

The bottom one is a GMO which stands for Glenda Mollet Original!  LOL


This is the stamp set called Santa's Suit. Each of those pieces have matching dies so there is NOTHING you have to fussy cut out.

Here's my studio all set up.  I had an extra stamp set, so I did a random number draw and Peggy M won the Santa's Suit stamp set!!!!  I love giving things away, it's so gratifying.  Specially when the recipient has the set on her wish list but has not purchased it yet!

Well, off to get ready for our big Stamp Out Breast Cancer fund raiser tomorrow.  I hope to be able to show you some pictures next week, so stay tuned.

Have a Crafty Day!

Welcome Cards for my Sister's Business

Hello Friends!

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving weekend!  We were camping with some family and had a wonderful time.  The weather co-operated so we were able to go to the Pumpkin Fest and spend time on the beach.

Today I am sharing a card I made for my Sister's business.  She is a Veterinarian in Sidney, BC and uses my cards for her clients.  I make Welcome cards for people who are new to her business, and Sympathy (Thinking Of You) cards for those who lose a furry member of their family.

I made the Welcome cards, and still have the Sympathy ones to go.  Here's what I came up with ...


I had some left over pieces of Color Theory Designer Paper that just fit exactly what I needed.  I made the cards in 3 of the 4 colours in the package.  I paired this with a stamped image from Wild About Flowers.  I love this set so much.  It is a 2 step stamping set, which means you stamp the stem and leaves first, then stamp the flower image in a different colour.  The stamp set is photopolymer and you can see through it to line up the flowers exactly where you want them.

Here is the recipe for you:
Thick Whisper White card base 8-1/2 x 5-1/2
Basic Black 2-1/8 x 5-3/8 and 2-1/4 x 4-1/8
Whisper White 2-1/8 x 4
Color Theory DSP Stack 2 x 5-1/4
Ink:  Old Olive, Crushed Curry, Memento

You still have time to order select designer series papers during the "Buy 3 Get 1 FREE" promotion from Stampin' Up!  This stack of papers (6x6) is on the list of papers that are included in the sale.

Eclipse Anniversary Card

Hi Friends!

I got a little carried away on the weekend making cards using the Eclipse Technique.  I created this one for my Dear Hubby who has been married to me for 41 years now. It was our anniversary recently so I wanted to do something special for him.

I reverted back to the very first stamp set I ever purchased from Stampin' Up! way back in 2007 - Lovely As A Tree.  This set is the one that has been in the Stampin' Up! catalogue for the longest time, and Shelli Gardner the co-founder of Stampin' Up! has said it will never retire.  I never get tired of using it I just love the images so much.


To do this very simple technique you first create your card front piece by doing all the stamping and everything else.  Then you decide what word you want to put on it.  I used the Large Letter dies by Stampin' Up! and 4 of them fit very nicely on a piece of 5 x 3-3/4" glossy paper.  I will tell you how I did the background in a bit.  Then you lay your piece on the Big Shot and space out the letters where you want them.  After running it through and cutting out the letters, you attach this layer to the rest of your card.  The letters L O V E were then returned to the holes the dies made using dimensionals to lift them up off the layer.  It is such a cool technique, give it a try, and because the glossy paper is glimmeryish, you don't even need to add any more bling!

To make the background I used a piece of Stampin' Up! Glossy White cardstock and a baby wipe.  First get some ink (I used Night of Navy) onto the inside of the cover of the ink pad.  Swipe the baby wipe around picking up some of the ink and then swipe it onto your glossy cardstock.  The baby wipe is damp and the glossy cardstock allows it to flow nicely back and forth and you have a bit of time to play with it and make it look as you like.  I left some areas uncoloured so it looks like there are clouds in the sky.  I used Old Olive ink to do the same thing on the bottom of the layer, then stamped Lovely As A Tree using Archival Basic Black ink (you need to use something permanent so it dries fast and stays on the glossy cardstock.

Let me know if you would like me to make a video of this card. I would be happy to!  A list of supplies can be found under my signature.  You can click on any of the images and go to my Canadian Online Store.  Or CLICK HERE, you can place an online order and get all these amazing products.  If you order online, please use the Host Code located at the top right of my blog. I will send you some card tutorials at the end of the month as a Thank You.  Or you can EMAIL ME and I will be happy to help you place your order, or figure out what you would like to purchase.

Don't forget for only $135 you can join my Craft Room Stampers Team and get $165 in product plus some business supplies too.  CLICK HERE to join my Team.

Foil Christmas Cards

Hi Friends!

You can probably tell by the cards I create, that bling is on almost every card I make.  I often say bling makes a card better!

I recently decided to make some cards using the beautiful foil papers and embellishments that Stampin' Up! brought out in the Holiday Catalogue this year, along with some items from the Annual
Catalogue.  Champagne, Copper, Gold, and Silver are very eye catching, and who knew they could used together on a card?  Apparently Stampin' Up! knew and decided to share that information with us by producing the Year Of Cheer specialty designer series papers.

https://www.stampinup.com/ecweb/ProductDetails.aspx?productID=144640&dbwsdemoid=2028928

Pictures don't do it justice, in person it is just lovely, isn't it spectacular?  (click on the image to go to my online store for more information).

I used it on this card ....


I tend to hoard gorgeous papers, so I just used a strip of it on the left side of this card. Then I cut out some snowflakes from some Gold Foil paper and added them.  The Silver Metallic Edged Ribbon is so yummy I had to add that too. The sentiment is embossed with Gold Embossing Powder.  This card is blingy to the max!  LOL

The next card I created uses some of the Copper Foil paper ....


I used the Softly Falling embossing folder on the Copper Foil paper at the bottom and it looks like tiny jewels all over it.  When inking up the Let It Snow sentiment we inked it in Soft Suede (which is so close to copper it's unreal) then used a blender pen to remove the Soft Suede on the words and added some Garden Green using the Stampin' Write Marker.  This was then hand cut around on the frame lines and we punched a piece of copper foil with the Everyday Label punch and layered it behind.  Some snowflakes from the Seasonal Layers dies were used to cut out some copper foil and they were placed behind the sentiment.  The copper trim ribbon was used over some of the White Classic Weave Ribbon and wrapped around the layers. The designer paper on the top is from the Be Merry paper.

Sometimes I do make some "GMO" cards which is what I call Glenda Mollet Originals! What have you created lately?  Do you like to use the foil papers? You can find a list of supplies I used for both cards under my signature.

CLICK HERE to go to my Canadian Online store (or any of the images below) or EMAIL ME and I will be happy to help you place an order.  You can receive some free card tutorials at the end of the month by ordering through me, or online using the Host Code found at the top of the right hand column of my blog.
