Thanks for Everything!

Posted by on Aug 8, 2018 in Big Shot, Thanks

Today’s card is another cruise swap featuring the Tropical Thinlits, the Maps Etc. TIEF and the Gold Embossed greeting from All Things Thanks stamp set. This swap was created by Sylvie Dorsey and features the Under the Sea Bundle from page 155 of the Annual catalogue.  The photo does not show the detailed glimmer on this card but it is truly beautiful and the sentiment, included in the stamp set is a perfect match with all the sea creatures.  The coordinating framelits cut out a lot of details and add beautiful layers to make this a WOW card! Love it! I have finally updated my calendar so take a look to see if there’s a class or two or three that you might be interested in. Thanks for visiting today.  Have a wonderful...

Petal Promenade

Posted by on Jul 30, 2018 in 3D, Big Shot, Thanks

This no glue box is the perfect size for some chocolates or a  little gift of any sort.  It was part of my Alaska Cruise 3D swap, paired with a coordinating spiral notepad (below). Both are created with Fresh Fig cardstock, Blushing Bride cardstock, Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper and Rose Glimmer Paper–all available in the current 2018-19 Annual catalogue.  The Rose Glimmer paper was die cut with Stained Glass Thinlits and decorated with a Fresh Fig 1/8″ Sheer Ribbon bow. I’ll have some cruise highlights and swaps to share with you over the next little while.  I was able to mail 50 post cards to customers/team members from Skagway, Alaska so if you were on my list, be watching your mailbox.  Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to mail them all from the USA so some of you will be receiving them hand delivered or by Canada Post. Thank you so much for your support which helped make it possible for me to earn this trip.  Thanks for visiting today.  Have a great...

Handwriting Meets Springtime Impressions!

Posted by on Jul 6, 2018 in Big Shot, Techniques

Todays stunning card created by Donna Wizniuk, features the variegated Handwriting background stamp with a vellum butterfly from the Springtime Impressions Thinlits Dies and sentiment from Abstract Impressions.  The butterfly is so soft, it looks like his wings are starting to flutter! This was another swap card I received at the Creative Getaway Calgary. There are so many great new products in the new 2018-2019 catalogue, I’m sure it will take some time to have a chance to play and create with everything I love! Also, when the new catalogue was released, there were new Stampin’ Blends colors, however, they were not available till just this week.  I received my new colors yesterday so you’ll want to watch for new posts featuring the new colors and maybe even get your own favourite colors.  Coloring with the Stampin’ Blends is amazing as colors blend so beautifully! Thanks for visiting today!  Happy...

Animal Outing Fun Fold

Posted by on Jul 5, 2018 in Babies & Kids, Big Shot, Birthday

Today’s fun fold card created by my friend, Maureen, was a swap I received and the Creative Getaway last week-end.  I love all the details of this card and I also love the Animal Outing Bundle which includes the stamp set and coordinating Dies to cut out all the animals. I also used this bundle with the Adult Special Needs Card Class I teach and everyone loved it!  Maureen added additional texture to the front of this card with the Petal Pair Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (TIEF). This is a great bundle to create cards for kids, however, the cuteness of this bundle appeals to many!  Have you got a copy of the new catalogue?  If not, and you would like one, I’d be happy to give you a complimentary copy on your request. Thanks for visit8ing today.  Happy...
