Nature's Beauty - Rabbit

I think my favourite stamp set in the Holiday Catalogue is this one - the Nature's Beauty stamp set. It doesn't have any sentiments but the images work for any occasion! The best part is $4 from every sale will go towards the Center for Addiction and Mental Health here in Canada. I love that Stampin' Up! is being a difference maker and we can help contribute to mental health by purchasing the stamp set. If you missed seeing it - check out page 63 of the Holiday Catalogue.

My card today was created for a team swap. Many different dies were used to create this card - the Stitched Labels dies, Stitched Shapes dies, and the Frosted Bouquet dies.

Cool Birthday Penguin!

One of my nephews love penguins! I don't own this set and had over looked it in the Holiday Catalogue. That is until I was at a recent Crop Kingston all day crop that I run with Lisa Henderson. She was using the Playful Penguins stamp set for a swap card. Upon seeing the stamp set I knew it would be perfect for my nephew's birthday! His mom let me know recently that he jumped for joy when he received this card in the mail - both for it having a penguin on it and the birthday money inside! Fills my heart to hear how much he enjoyed receiving his card.

The penguin was stamped in Black Memento ink and then fussy cut. The bow tie was stamped using the new Golden Glitz Delicata Metallic Ink. The metallic ink does take a little longer to dry before you can cut out the image but I love the shine, the perfect touch for this cool penguin!

Global Stamping Friends blog hop - Treat Holders

Welcome to our October Global Stamping Friends blog hop where we are sharing Treat Holders - perfect ideas for Halloween treats, Thanksgiving favours or Christmas stocking stuffers!

I've created these mini curvy boxes using the Monster Bash designer series paper. It uses a 5.25" x 5.25" piece of designer series paper so you can make 4 boxes from one 12"x12" sheet.

The window on these boxes was cut out using the teardrop shape die that comes with the Mini Curvy Keepsake dies. Use a piece of Window Sheet to cover the hole from the inside before putting the box together. The Lace Trim was coloured using a Basic Black Dark Stampin' Blend and adhered with glue dots once the box was assembled. I wrote the boo greeting using the Basic Black blend.

Peacock Ornaments

The Brightly Gleaming Specialty designer series paper is beautiful with the Copper foil accents. This card has very little stamping and takes advantage of the beautiful designer series paper and the Gleaming Ornaments punch pack. The Stitched Rectangle dies were used to cut out the Whisper White main panel - the stitching gives this panel a little pop.

September Crop - In Support of Breast Cancer Action Kingston

A lovely day spent crafting this past Saturday! I completed a few projects that were on my to-do list. And yes, I make a to-do list for crop day or I either forget what I was supposed to make or forget something at home!

In everyone's grab bags was a full package of the Come to Gather designer series paper from the Holiday Catalogue. First up is my pocket page. On my two projects I used the Gather Together bundle that includes the Gather Together stamp set and the Gather Together Leaves dies.

This gift bag was created using a 12" by 7" piece of designer series paper scored and glued together and decorated.

Lisa created the scrapbook page and the card. I love how we created projects on our own but they work so well together. I love how Lisa used the Frosted Frames dies on her card.

I hope that you can join us next month at our Crop Kingston all day crop in support of Ronald McDonald House Charities. Registration is $30 and registration due by October 7th. See the link below to sign up for our next crop.

Splatter Birdies


Today's card is one I made on Thursday evening during my Facebook live. I saw the idea of using one of the splatters from the Artisan Textures stamp set from a card created by Rochelle Laird-Smith. Although I couldn't remember which splatter it was! I had 3 different splatters on blocks by the time I finally realized that it was the largest splatter that would get the effect I wanted. The splatters are stamped off onto my grid paper before stamping over the birds. This way it lightens up the ink to allow the bird image to pop. The next step was to cut out the image using the Nested Label dies and then to assemble the card. To embellish the card a bit I added 3 pearls and some Clear Wink of Stella to the birdies. The sparkle doesn't show well in the picture above but its there!

Watch the Facebook Live below and join me on Thu Oct 3rd at 7pm EDT for my next one:

Team Holiday Swap #2

Swap cards are fun to make! The hardest part is choosing which product from the Holiday Catalogue I was going to use. Decided that for this swap I would do a fall theme as my other swap card was Christmas.  Did you n now the label on each pack of designer series paper lists the colours? I chose Pretty Peacock, Crushed Curry and Early Espresso from the colours listed.

Snowflake Frost Pocket Page

This pocket page uses the same pack of designer series paper as my last pocket page I shared on Sep 17 - the First Frost Specialty designer series paper but it has a different look and feel to it. This designer series paper is very versatile and I love the silver foil. Although if you watch me colouring in the snowflakes in the video you can tell that bright lights and silver foil make it hard to keep the colour between the lines!

Still not decided if there will be a title page as the pictures used for this layout are from 3 different days. The snowflakes are coloured in using a Mint Macaroon and Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends. The snowflake die cuts are made using the Seasonal Layers dies and some Shimmer White card stock.
