I love the Leaf Punch

When I saw the Leaf Punch in the Holiday Catalogue, I knew I had to have it.  There are so many ways to use the punch - especially as part of the Painted Harvest stamp set which it coordinates with. But there are so many other ideas that are appearing!

Here's a card that I received from my friend Diane Evans that uses leaves cut out of different metallics to create a wreath.  Isn't it a WOW card!  But so easy.


It's even more stunning in person!

Can you CASE it Friday - Stampin' Up! Blends

Today I'm sharing 2 cards I CASE'd from the flyer for the new Stampin' Up! Blends alcohol markers that you'll be able to get your hands on as of November 1st!  I love to colour and I was so excited when the new Blends markers were announced.  I've had a chance to play with them (one of the perks of being a demonstrator!) of the past couple of weeks.

Here are a couple of cards I CASE'd that use the Color Me Happy stamp set (also available November 1st) and the Blends markers.  First, the cards I CASE'd (top left and middle right).  These cards are made using the Color Me Happy Project kit that will also be available November 1st (while supplies last) that makes 16 cards.


Now, my cards


I didn't use the kit, just the stamp set, so a few changes, but mostly I stayed true to the cards.  My goal was to practice colouring!

Here's some of the details:


Stampin' Up! Blends will:


  • Be available in 12 colours (first launch) in both a light shade and a dark shade.  Each colour and shade is sold separately so if you use a colour a lot you can replace just that one pen.
  • Also be available in Ivory and Bronze for skin tones.
You can purchase a Color Lifter (for blending and lifting colour when you've added too much).
You can purchase as single markers, in a 2 pack combo (light and dark) or as a complete set (26 markers plus Color Lifter).


Interested in getting your set?  Email me or place your order online as of November 1st.

Happy stamping!

Weekly Updates and a Share!

It's a beautiful day on Vancouver Island - such a treat in October to have a sunny day!  I hope it's as lovely where you are too.

Today I wanted to share with you a card I made as a Thank You for the sponsors of our 5th Annual Ronald McDonald House Stamp-a-Stack.  This card was very quick and easy to make.


I love the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper.  In this case, I added some Copper Foil as a background on Early Espresso Cardstock.  It's hard to see on the picture but I added some Copper Trim behind the sentiment.  The Copper Trim is so versatile.  It is really easy to use to tie a bow or you can also pull the trim apart and make wider, abstract piece of ribbon.

Can you CASE it Friday - Painted Harvest

I'm a bit late in post this edition of Can you CASE it Friday.  I have no idea where the time goes!

This time I'm casing a card I shared last Friday where I CASE'd a fancy fold card I received from Ellie Blake.  For this card, I CASE'd the water coloured sunflower and colours on a regular 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card.

Here's my previous card.


And now, here's the card I created for a monthly swap that I'm in with some fellow demonstrators across Canada.

Musical Season and Stampin' Up! Blends


On Saturday I was honoured to be part of an amazing group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators that hosted our 5th Annual Ronald McDonald Stamp-a-Stack.  This is always such a fun event and this year was no exception.  Lots of fun, lots of stamping, lots of prizes won and best of all lots of money raised for Ronald McDonald House in Vancouver.  Thanks to everyone who participated we raised $2311 for the Vancouver House!

Interested in learning more or participating in our next event, leave a comment or email me.

Here's the card that I designed for the event.  It's quick and easy!  And yes, the point on the card front is supposed to be asymmetrical!  :)
