Valentine's for Veterans

A few weeks ago Stampin' Up! Canada asked for cards to be sent to them for Valentine's for Veterans. They are due to them by this Fri Jan 24. These cards were great ways to use some of the From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper and some sentiments that aren't really Valentine's but are perfect to share with someone I don't know!


These cards was created during my Facebook live last week. The video is below if you missed watching it. Join me tonight at 7pm for my next live!

CASE the Mini Catalogue - Page 4

If you need inspiration for your project pick up a catalogue - the Annual, the Mini or even the Sale-A-Bration - and look at the projects! Project designs and colour combinations abound. My card is a case of the Peaceful Poppies bundle that can be found on page 4 of the Mini Catalogue. I omitted the panel behind the flowers and changed the orientation of the card. The catalogue sample's flowers were watercoloured but I used a clear block to pick up colour from the ink pad and then press over the flower. Two of the flowers were done the same way but the ink stamped off onto a scrap of paper before stamping the block with colour to the smaller flowers.

Joy of Sets Blog Hop - Something New

Welcome to January's The Joy of Sets Blog Hop - Something New! January is always an exciting time: it's a new year, Stampin' Up! releases new products and Sale-A-Bration starts! Today we are using new items to create our projects. I've used the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set that you can earn FREE during Sale-A-Bration with a minimum $60 order.

The Lovely Lily Pad stamp set is a Reversibles set - meaning that you can use the back side of the line image to stamp another image! We didn't use the back side of any of the stamps for this card but you could change up the design and fill in the lily pad or the flower to change up the card.

At card class on Wednesday one of the the ladies embossed the Cajun Craze square as well for a different look. I love to see people change up my design to make it their own and be creative!

This card uses colours I usually do not think of first! When I saw my Year of Colour for 2019 I noticed a lot of browns and blues. My challenge for myself for 2020 is to use more colour!

Monkey Tropical Birthday Card

My niece requested a monkey card for her birthday this year after I made a penguin card for her brother! I used a bunch of circle punches and a few of the Layering Oval dies to create the monkey! The monkey is layered with die cut leaves from the Tropical Chic stamp set. The background was stamped with Granny Apple Green, Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive (stamped off first though). Then I used Granny Apple Green ink and a Sponge Brayer to darken the bottom portion of the stamped piece. I hand drew the nose and mouth on using Black Journaling Pens.

Blackberry and Poppy Birthday Card


Made this card for a friend's birthday! I used the new Peaceful Poppies Elements and the Label Me Lovely punch for this card. The flower element is from the Peaceful Poppies Elements - it's clear embossed onto watercolour paper. I used Real Red and Old Olive watercolour pencils to colour in the image. The flower might show better if I had coloured in the background as well. The black embossed fringe is from the same elements package.

This birthday card was created during my Facebook live last week. The video is below if you missed watching it. Join me Thursday January 9th at 7pm for my next live!

Global Stamping Friends - Party!

Hello and welcome to our January Global Stamping Friends blog hop! The theme this month is PARTY! A perfect theme since today is my father's birthday! And I made a card just for him using the Birthday Bonanza suite.

His card features the new Birthday Bonanza designer series paper. I haven't purchased the Bonanza Buddies bundle that includes the stamp set and matching dies but might have to since they are do cute! The toucan image on this card was punched right from the designer series paper using a 2" circle punch. It's layered with the Stitched So Sweetly dies and some of the Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon.

Check out all the products that are in the Birthday Bonanza suite here:
