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

Hoppy Birthday Card For My Sister

Hello Friends!

My "button" is frogs.  I HATE frogs, they totally creep me out.  Of course my entire family knows this, and takes every opportunity to give me frog related things.

My sister is no exception.  A few years ago she managed to find a horrible Christmas Card of a toady frog and she bought a LOT of them.  Each year she gave us one for Christmas.  I asked her how many thousands of the cards she had gotten, and she said she only had 1 left.

Now, far be it for me to have this really creepy toady thing go extinct!  So I took one of those yucky things and fashioned it into a Birthday card for her last year.  Here is what I made for her  ....


Isn't that disgusting???? Then my darling sister crossed out "birthday" and wrote in "Christmas" and returned the card to us again last year.

So this year for her birthday I again used the image above to create her birthday card.  Here is what I did this year ...


This is the front of it, pretty benign isn't it?  But, when you open it up ....


This gruesome face pops out at you .....


This one shows how it pops out and is right there in your face.  I suppose he will hop back to us for some occasion in the near future.

Does your family have any weird traditions like this?  I would love to hear about them.  EMAIL ME or leave a comment below.

Love You Lots Fun Fold Card Share

Hi Friends!

Back in May I participated in a local Birthday Card Swap with some Vancouver Island Demonstrators.  One of the cards I got was this fun fold card using some Hostess stamp sets.




This card was created by the very talented Julie Swaren.  I did not want to change anything on it and used it for a recent class I held in Powell River.  This card is called a tri-fold I believe and uses the Hostess stamp sets Love you Lots and Fabulous Flora, which are two of my favourite stamp sets from the new 2016-17 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue.


You can click on the stamp set pictures above to go to my online store and place an order.  You can get these stamp sets with a qualifying order of $200 (CDN) or more.

Come back next time for a video on how I set up and maintain my clear mount stamp sets.

Floral Phrases Bundle Card Share

Hello Friends!

Last week I had my June Stamp-A-Stack where we made 3 cards using this amazing bundle of products.  Here are the cards we made ....


I cased the one above right from Stampin' Up!


This one was cased from LeeAnn Greff and can be found on Pinterest.


This third one is a "GMO" Glenda Mollet Original!  The Happy Birthday holds the two sides together and the white piece in behind pulls out using the ribbon tab on the top.

I like sharing different types of cards with my stampers, and this class they got two different ways to create cards.  Let me know if you would like me to post tutorials on how to make these cards.

Thank You Card Share

Hello Everyone!

I thought I would share a couple of the recent 3 x 3 Thank You cards I created to slip into customers orders.


This first one I used the wonderful stamp set called Just Kidding.  I love the words from this set as they say a lot of the things I use in real life.




This second card I used Helping Me Grow, another of my favourite stamp sets.  Ok, I have a LOT of favourite sets, LOL.


Both of these stamp sets are very versatile, and can be used for a lot of occasions.

I hope you get to be Crafty in your Craft Room today!

Welcome Back, Woodland Embossing Folder, You Have Been Missed!

Hello Friends!

When Stampin' Up! announced it was retiring the Woodland Embossing Folder, I was a bit upset.  But with a bit of persuasion from Demonstrators and Customers alike, Stampin' Up! decided to bring it back.  Yippeeeee

It is in the 2016-17 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue that was just released on June 1st.  I am so glad it is back (page 195 Item #139673  $11.25 Cdn) and couldn't wait to have a Woodland Embossing Folder Technique Class.  Here is one of the cards we made in that class ....


This is just one of the great things you can do with this beautiful embossing folder.

First you sponge Marina Mist ink right onto the inside of the embossing folder on the top.  Then you sponge Crumb Cake ink under that completely covering the embossing folder.  We then inked up the car image from Guy Greetings in Memento ink, and stamped it right onto the inside of the embossing folder.  You have to make sure all of this is done on the side of the folder that has the "indented trees" which is the side that has the labels on it.

Put your Whisper White cardstock (5 x 3-3/4") inside the embossing folder, on the side that you have not added ink to, then close the folder. You do this so you can move the cardsock around and not smudge the ink.  Then run it through your Big Shot as usual.  Once that is done, you have a great image of cars hiding behind the trees.  We coloured the cars with Almost Artichoke ink using an aqua pen.  Then, using a sponge and crumb cake ink, lightly drag the sponge over the trees to give them some definition.

The card base is Marina Mist 8-1/2 x 5-1/2 scored and folded at 4-1/4
The first layer is Night Of Navy 5-1/8 x 3-7/8
The sentiment is also from Guy Greetings and punched out with the now retired Washi Label Punch

Give this technique a try then EMAIL ME and let me know how you did.

Fond Farewell to World Map

Hi Friends
Every once in a while I get to escape with a couple of friends for a "crafty day".  We recently headed to Victoria to spend time with a fellow demonstrator and very special friend.

This is one of the cards we made while we were down there ....


It was still May and masculine month in my classes, so I was excited to create this great card and share it with my Wednesday morning Seniors group.

The World Map retired with the past Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue, but I will be hanging on to mine.  I love how versatile it is.

We stamped the World Map in Early Espresso ink on a 3-3/4 x 5-1/4" piece of Very Vanilla cardstock.  There was a lot of sponging in Lost Lagoon and Mossy Meadow inks.  We then cut it into 1-1/2" slices and sponged all the edges in Early Espresso.  These slices were layered on top of a Mossy Meadow card base.  The steam train (one of my very favourite stamps) onto a piece of very vanilla cardstock and layered it onto Lost Lagoon and then Mossy Meadow.  This was popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals after we added the sentiment.

This card is not too difficult, but it is an amazing card.  Thanks to Barb and MiRan for another fabulous day!

Have a crafty day!  Glenda Mollet

Video Thursday - Using Wax Paper With Your Dies

Hello Friends!

This video was shared on a facebook group I belong to.  I thought it was very interesting, and worth sharing with you.

Wax Paper has been suggested for use with intricate die cutting for quite a while now.  I thought it was a good thing, and it would not "hurt" the dies.  But after watching this video, I have changed my mind.

Have a look, and leave me a comment on what you think ...




Have an amazing day!  Glenda Mollet
