Sale-a-bration Sneak Peek #2

So tonight I wanted to share another creation using the fabulous designer series paper being featured in this year’s Sale-a-bration. I absolutely love all of the products and can’t wait to share more!

Happy Birthday!

In this card:

  • Stamp – Happiest of Birthday Wishes
  • Ink – Calypso Coral, Pool Party, Wisteria Wonder, Island Indigo and Lucky Limade
  • Paper – Calypso Coral, Pool Party, Whisper White, Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper
  • Accessories – Sale-a-bration Calypso Coral ribbon

The Little touch – for me the little touch on this card has to be the double layer of the Calypso Coral ribbon. It goes so nicely with the designer series paper and I love the way that it just finishes off the card.

Can’t wait to share more of what I have been creating!


Ribbons and Bows

Anyone who has got to know my crafting style knows that I love ribbons and bows and anything that adds a feminine touch. I ordered some fabulous delightful daffodil grosgrain ribbon and decided that it was the perfect material to make this bow out of!

Daffodil Delight Bow

On this Card:

  • Stamp Set: Tea Shoppe
  • Ink – Garden Green
  • Paper – Basic Gray, Whisper White, Garden Green Designer Series Paper
  • Ribbon – Daffodil Delight Grosgrain
  • Punch – Modern Label

Up-close Picture of the Bow

The Little Touch – on this card, the little touch is actually pretty BIG! The grosgrain bow totally makes the card and is a great art piece. I would love to share how I made it just e-mail me at! To hold the ribbon together, I used one of my favourite adhesives Stampin’ Up!’s glue dots.

Sale-a-bration Sneak Peek!

As I mentioned in my last post, I’ve been busy crafting in the last week, so busy in fact I am trying to catch up on my blog posts tonight. Starting January 24th, Stampin’ Up!’s annual Sale-a-bration begins. The promotion allows customers to earn FREE merchandise with their normal stamp purchases and it is the perfect time to host a workshop or add to your stamp collection.

I used the designer series paper that you can earn for free starting next week and my new favourite set – Tea Shoppe!

A Cup of Thanks

In this card:

  • Stamp Set – Tea Shoppe
  • Paper- Crumb Cake, Pool Party, Designer Series Paper (sale-a-bration)
  • Ink – Lucky Limeade, Chocolate Chip, Real Red
  • Accessories – Dimensionals, Circle Punch, Scallop Punch, modern label punch

The Little Touch – On this card, I think the little touch is the raised scallop circle that displays the tea cup. the dimension adds interest and polish to the card and also brings your eyes to the image.

The message on the Modern Label could reflect any occasion!

Valentines is Coming!

So over the last week, I’ve had the opportunity to make some great new cards. Starting this week, I’m going to be posting at least one valentines day card leading up to Feb. 14th.

Valentines can so easily become a commercial holiday which is why a home-made card either made by you or for you is the perfect gift for you loved one this February.

Candy Conversations

In this card:

  • Stamp Set: Candy Conversations (occasions Mini)
  • Paper: Whisper White
  • Ink: 2011 InCoulours! Wisteria Wonder, Lucky Limade, Pool Party, Calypso Coral
  • Accessories: Punch – 1 inch circle punch, white linen thread

Second Angle

The Little Touch – for me the little touch on this card is the 1 inch circle punch adding texture. The tone on tone white and the geometrical shape difference is unique.

Enjoy! I look forward to sharing more of my valentine day creations with you soon.

New Tea Shoppe Stamp Set

I’m very excited to share with you a card from one of my favourite new stamp sets from the Occasions mini-catalogue. It’s called Tea Shoppe and has some fantastic stamp options. The card below utilizes four of the stamps and I can’t wait to share more designs over the coming week *just be patient I’m spending the weekend throwing rocks at houses (aka curling) and I won’t have that much time to craft*.

Just for You

  • Stamp Set: Tea Shoppe
  • Paper: Garden Green, Crumb Cake
  • Ink: Garden Green
  • Extras: Corner punch, Modern Label Punch

The Little Touch – the little touch on this card is the rounded corners and the fact that it’s a square card. Sometimes it doesn’t take much to make a card interesting but these little details made this card great for me.
