Beautifully Braided

I love the image of gingko on the Beautifully Braided stamp set.  It reminds me of a necklace I once had with a ginko leaf on it - I wore this necklace all of the time until it finally was looking a bit worn!

I created this card and used a technique to emboss that I hadn't used in a long time - I stamped the image with Garden Green ink and then embossed using Clear Embossing Powder.  I'm not sure why I forget about this technique - it's a great way to get an embossed image in any colour.  The trick is to make sure your ink pad is juicy and you sprinkle the embossing powder on immediately after stamping!




Check out the instructions and supply list for this card. 

If you live in Canada, I would love to be your demonstrator!

    Morning Star

    Did you notice this stamp set in the 2020 Mini Catalogue?  It's called Morning Star and it coordinates with the Stitched Stars Dies.  I lived in a house once that had Morning Glory all over - I fought with it for the longest time as everyone thinks of it as a weed.  Finally, I gave up - why was I trying to get rid of all of the vines with the beautiful flowers!  





    Check out the instructions and supply list for this card!

    Stay tuned for a box made from the Stitched Stars dies.  I'll be casing the idea from Shelli Gardner's presentation at the last Stampin' Up! OnStage event.

        Peaceful Moments

        Have you noticed the Peaceful Moments Bundle in the 2020 Mini Catalogue?  I love it when Stampin' Up! creates products that pair together so beautifully!  They did an amazing job with the Peaceful Moments and Peaceful Poppies Suites.  For this card, I've used the Peaceful Moments bundle along with the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper.

          Happy Valentine's Day

          Happy Valentines day!  Did you make a card for a special someone (or many special someones) in your life?  Here's the card I made for my husband.  I absolutely love the From the Heart Designer Series Paper.  It's hard to see in the pictures, but some of the sheets are foil - love it!

          I paired the beautiful paper with the Meant to Be stamp set and Stitched Be Mine dies from the Annual Catalogue.  A perfect match!

              Parisian Beauty

              I love Paris so when I saw the Parisian Beauty Bundle and coordinating Parisian Blossoms Designer Series Paper, I knew I had to buy it!  To top it off, the flowers remind me of spring on the West Coast where we are lucky to have lots of Cherry Blossoms.

              I designed this card for a swap.  I love how it turned out!


              I cut the Eiffel Tower out of a Champagne Foil Sheet.  It adds just the right amount of bling to my card.

                  So Sentimental

                  I love the So Sentimental stamp set with the coordinating Stitched So Sweetly dies!  My original plan was to use Designer Series Paper on this card, but in the end used the Buffalo Check stampset.  I really like the combination of Basic Grey and Poppy Parade.
