Petal Promenade Praying For You

Posted by on Aug 13, 2018 in Creative Folds, Sympathy

Todays card is a near case from Ronda Wade featuring the beautiful Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper and an Easy Z-Fold.  Selected DSP was on sale in July so I stocked up on some of my favorites.  This fold is a great way to showcase both sides of the DSP. The cardstock colors used are Petal Pink for the card base and Blushing Bride for the second layer and the stamping.  What a fun card this was to make. If you love card making, be sure to check out my calendar to see if there’s a class that you might like to try.  I love stamping and sharing with everyone–seasoned stampers, new stampers, kids, Special needs, team members and more.  There’s a class for everyone:  Basic Card Class, Technique Class, Creative Folds and exclusive classes.  There’s two classes the end of this month and then on September 5, the upcoming Holiday catalogue will be effective with lots of new stamps, bundles and products so you’ll be the first to try them out if you attend a class. If you’re attending the Holiday Escape & Create Retreat, you’ll be trying out a lot of new products as well as getting new products at the retreat.  If the retreat filled before you could register, we have a limited Retreats in a Box available for sale for $125. which includes all the retreat projects, tutorials and some pillow gifts.  Contact me today if you would like one before they’re all gone. Thanks for visiting today.  Have a wonderful...

Lovely As A Tree

Posted by on May 2, 2018 in Retiring, Sympathy, Techniques

Black Ice Technique is featured on this card created with the spruce from Lovely As A Tree.  This was the technique I taught at my April Technique Class. Supplies needed to create this card are minimal:  Basic Black cardstock, Silver Foil, Black Archival Ink, VersaMark, Clear Embossing powder and the stamp of your choice.  Embellishments are your choice.  I added a small piece of Black Shimmer Ribbon below the focal point and added the greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes, which will be retiring as of May 31, 2018.  Greeting was punched out with the Classic Label Punch. The dragging of the ink pads, both Black and VersaMark are what makes this technique a WOW!  If you’re interested in learning a new technique, or refreshing an older technique, why not consider attending one of my classes.  I’d love to have you. Thanks for visiting today.  Happy...

Blossoming Basket

Posted by on Feb 19, 2018 in 3D, Big Shot, Birthday, Sale-a-bration 2018, Sympathy

Here’s a sneak peek of the New Blossoming Basket Bundle which includes this amazing basket full of flowers as well as two lovely sentiments, the heart tag and a sweet little butterfly and… the Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  These pictures surely don’t do justice to this bundle, but as I said, it’s a sneak peek! Watch for upcoming samples and more ideas to use this amazing bundle!  This bundle is a new Sale-a-bration item (Level 2) that was added February 16 for additional items to choose from when you place your Stampin’ Up order. I’ll be using this bundle in upcoming classes so check my calendar for a class that might work for you. Thanks for visiting today.  Happy Family Day and happy...

Waterfront Scene, Spirit Island, AB

Posted by on Feb 5, 2018 in Occasions, Sympathy

This card was inspired by a photo of Spirit Island, AB.  Are you familiar with this location?  If not, why not google it. I had a lot of fun creating this card, step by step, the sky, the mountains, the beach, the lake, the trees in the foreground, the trees in the background, the birds in the sky and last but not least, the sentiment. Seventeen Winter Mini Escape attendees gathered at Camp Chestermere last Saturday and learned how to make this card as well as a variety of other beautiful cards and a box using stamps and supplies from the Occasions catalogue as well as Sale-a-bration products. If you missed out on this event, plan to attend the next one on Saturday, March 17.  More info to follow shortly and will also be posted on my calendar as well as my Facebook page.  This will be an amazing event you will not want to miss! Thanks for visiting...

Sunset Galaxy Sky

Posted by on Aug 26, 2017 in Sympathy, Techniques

This card is a near CASE from Linda Bauwin, named as Sunset Galaxy Technique.  When I saw the technique, I knew I had to learn it and share it.  This technique will be shared at my next Technique class coming up next week.  I will add more details on my calendar on the week-end. I love the colors Linda used and before I even saw her card, I knew I wanted to use Lovely As A Tree and to my surprise, that’s the same stamp set she used.  I thought I’d make this a sympathy card as it is easier to make them when you don’t need them right away. Thanks for visiting.  Hope you can come back tomorrow to see another great card featuring Lovely As a Tree.  Happy...

Detailed step by step instructions are included, as well, a video is also available to see how to put the kit together.  If you’ve never tried Paper Pumpkin, then there’s a deal for you:  Buy one month and get the second month free.  If you’d like more information about Paper Pumpkin, please ask or check it out on You Tube.
