Holiday Card Class

Tuesday 28 October 2014

I had so much fun in my Holiday Card Class on Saturday.  It was the perfect day to stamp as it was rainy and cold outside.  Thanks to the ladies that were able to attend. Here's the cards we made.

I have two more classes scheduled -  November 6 from 7-9pm (only 1 spot left in this class) and November 11 from 10am - 12 noon (2 spots left).  If these dates and times don't work for you, email me and we'll see if we can find a date/time that does.  If you have some friends that want to get together to stamp I'd be happy to help you organize a party!

I have 4 new cards for you and a 3D item.

Interested?  Email me.

Tap Tap Tap

Saturday 18 October 2014

Today is the 2nd Annual Ronald McDonald House Charity Stamp-a-Stack.  I'm excited to be participating.  All of the proceeds go to the Ronald McDonald House in Vancouver - such a great cause!  Originally opened in Vancouver in 1983 with 13 rooms and in 2013 a new 73 room house has opened.  Interested in supporting RMHC?  Click here to donate!

The participants today will make 8 cards designed by some amazing Stampin' Demonstrators! I'm using the Tap Tap Tap stamp set for my card.  Check it out! Apologies for the quality of the picture - I took it with my new iPhone 6 and I think I'm still getting used to it as a camera!

I'll share more of the cards from the event on upcoming posts.

I have limited space available in my upcoming Holiday Card Class.  Email me if you are interested in registering or click here for more details.

Four Feathers

Tuesday 14 October 2014

I've had a busy weekend in my Craft Room.  I started by cleaning up and putting away all of my supplies after my two parties last week.  But I was also very productive and creative!  It's my sisters birthday in a couple of weeks so I made her card using the Four Feathers stamp set and coordinating framelits.  The inspiration for this card came from a card designed by Ginny Duncan - I love the stepped card she created for Thanksgiving.

Ginny used the Seasonally Scattered stamp set (Item 135023) with the Color Me Autum DSP (Item 135820) and the Four Feathers Framelits (Item 137629) and Autum Wooden Elements (Item 135846)

Here's my card.  I used the Back to Black DSP (Item 133700) with the Four Feathers stamp set and coordinating framelits (Item 137630 for the Bundle) on my card.  The stamped image is from the Chalk Talk stamp set and framelits (Item 130634).

My sister loves black and white so I hope she loves this card!

Stamping Party Samples and more

Saturday 11 October 2014

It's been a fun week!  I spent the week in Regina for work but I got to have some fun at the same time.  Two friends hosted a stamping party while I was there and I was able share what I love!  We focused on the Holiday Catalogue for both parties.  I showed them the wonderful new products that are available for the upcoming holidays and then they made a card to take home.

Here are the samples that I demonstrated or showed and also the Make and Takes made.

White Christmas

Beautiful card designed by Yvonne Jackson
Card from Alison Solven 
This picture doesn't do this card designed by Liane Binder justice!  Liane cut all of the little images out include all of the pennants on the Merry Christmas banner.  The care moves when you pull the ribbon.  It's hard to see by she even wrapped the tree onto the car with linen thread!  WOW!
Easy tag or bookmark made with the scalloped tag punch
Love this card by Alison Solven!

Holiday Home

Use the Color Me Autumn DSP with a Wooden Autumn element 
Notice the bottom - punched out using the Confetti Stars punch - love this!

Love the Halloween card made by Elaine Paget
This card made by Jenn Tinline was a hit!  Jenn used the coordinating framelits to cut out the building silhouettes.

Seasonally Scattered

Very pretty card made by Ginny Duncan
Love the silver card made by Ellie Blake
This card designed by Diane Evans caught everyones' attention!  Love the use of Vellum with white embossing powder.

Wonderous Wreath

Twisted Easel card designed by Jenn Tinline
Quick and easy card - the gold glimmer paper really steps this one up
As you can see there were lots of demos and projects!  If you're interested in holding a party, please email me.  Until October 31st you will receive a free stamp set along with the other amazing hostess benefits for a part with $325 or more in sales.  Both of the hostess for these parties will receive one!

Happy stamping!

Holiday Card Ideas

Tuesday 7 October 2014

Hi everyone,
It's Tuesday already - where does the time go?  I'm really excited to be holding 2 stamping parties for friends this week.  We're going to focus on the Holiday Catalogue - I have some card and tag ideas to share using some of the amazing new products.  I'll share the samples on my next post.

Here's a cool card made by my friend Colleen Vassos.  She's so talented!  Colleen has used the Santa Stache stamp set (Item 135035) with the coordinating Mustache Framelits (Item 133741 from the Annual Catalogue).  Isn't this adorable!

Ellie Blake sent me this card made with the Ornamental Pine Stamp set (Item 135107).  The picture doesn't do this card justice!  Ellie has cut the pine cones out and adhered them to the card.  I love this!

Don't forget to check out the Weekly Deals from Stampin' Up!  You can click here to find them.  This week silver Glimmer paper is on sale!  Just in time for your holiday cards!

Happy Stamping!

Happy World Card Making Day

Saturday 4 October 2014

It's World Card Making Day today and what better way to celebrate than to spend the day in my craft room.  I'm getting ready for two stamping parties next week so I had lots to get ready.  I finished off my Water Colour Winter Simply Created Kit (Item 135869) from Stampin' Up!  This was so much fun to make!

Check these cards out.

This kit includes the supplies you need to make 20 cards - 5 different designs.  You do need some additional supplies - stamp sets (Water Colour Winter Too - Item 136819), re-inkers, an ink pad and adhesives.  I did make a couple of changes to instructions - changed the colours of the strips on the Merry and Bright card and didn't use the twine ribbon.  The cards still look amazing!

Interested in learning more about this kit or getting together to make cards for Christmas?  Email me!

Happy stamping
