Poppy Cards

To create this card I used a few of the colours that are in the designer series paper. I stamped the poppies on watercolour paper then misted the ink to soften it.

This card was our make and take at Onstage earlier this month. You can see 2 of the different patterns that are included in the Peaceful Poppies designer series paper pack.

Both of these cards were created during my Facebook live. The video is below if you missed watching it. Join me next Thursday December 5th at 7pm for my next live.

Christmas Countdown Calendar

I put this Christmas Countdown project kit together a few weeks ago live on Facebook. So love how it turned out and I look forward to filling it with Ferrero Rocher so that I can countdown to Christmas! During my Facebook live, which you can watch below, I used different stamps than the suggested Christmas Countdown stamp set - the Nature's Beauty and Merry Moose stamp sets. But did use the ink colours they suggested, Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso and Mossy Meadow. This kit can be assembled without a stamp set as well as there was quite a few die-cut pieces leftover.

The boxes are 2" cubes and can hold many different items. The boxes do come out of the cubby-hole easily so you could decorate the back of them for another countdown - Easter, birthday or other fun event! There is still time to order this project kit - it would arrive the first part of December to you but then you can enjoy the chocolate for multiple days all at once!

Onstage Swaps

My swap card for Onstage Local Toronto was a CASE from one we made at November's Cards & Chocolate class. If you caught my Instagram stories I shared pictures of Onstage and my adventures. If you missed it head over to Instagram and check out the Highlights from the event! I started assembly of my swaps on the train to Toronto on Friday morning but the train swayed too much for me to happy with how the sentiments went on so they were finished Friday night while hanging out with friends at our Airbnb!

Above is the card we made at November's Cards & Chocolate class. It uses Thick Whisper White card stock, Real Red Card stock and a piece of Let It Snow specialty designer series paper.

Let It Snow Moose


Unfortunately the Moose punch is no longer available, it has been a very popular item! But the Merry Moose stamp set can still be purchased. I wanted to share this card with you still though, you can fussy cut the moose fairly easily or stamp them onto the Whisper White card stock and then die cut the oval - it will look different than my card but still cute!

Each moose is coloured with 2 different ink colours - Sahara Sand and Crumb Cake - but stamped off before stamping over the lined image. I cut off the antlers off one moose after all the stamping. You could also mask the antlers before stamping to achieve the same effect.

Global Stamping Friends - Extraordinary Hop

Hello and welcome to our Global Stamping Friend Extraordinary Blog Hop - celebrating the new January to June Mini Catalogue! Last weekend demonstrators from all over the world gathered together at Onstage to learn and see new products coming in January. We are sharing projects either showcasing new product or swaps from Onstage.

On Saturday I attended Onstage Local in Toronto, Ontario - it was a lot of fun! I was lucky to bring home the new Forever Blossoms stamp set and a package of new Country Club designer series paper. Both of these items will be in the January-June Mini Catalogue on January 3, 2020. One of my favourite reasons to attend Onstage is receiving new product before anyone else!


To colour in the flower image I used a Blender pen with Crushed Curry and Garden Green ink. Those 2 colours can be found in the Country Club designer series paper along with Night of Navy, Poppy Parade, Basic Black and Whisper White. I squeeze my ink pads to transfer colour to the lid, then use the Blender Pen to pick up the ink from the lid. Make sure to wipe your Blender pen on a scrap piece of paper to clear off any ink before using another colour or putting it away.

To finish off the card the main image is die cut using the Stitched Nested labels then popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals, a piece of Crushed Curry was embossed using the Stylish Scroll embossing folder (found in the Holiday Catalogue), a section of Basic Black Scalloped Edge ribbon and a few Gold Metallic pearls to finish off the card.

I had fun creating this swap card for November's Team Meeting. For this card I used the beautiful Feels Like Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper. One side of this designer series paper is silver foil while the other is beautiful photographic images.

Plaid Moose

We created this card at last month's Cards & Chocolate event. I cased this card from one I saw on Pinterest but the photo I saved doesn't have anyone's name on it - thank you to the one who gave me inspiration! The Buffalo Check is a perfect pairing to the Merry Moose bundle. The moose might be my most used stamp set right now!

Moose with the Balloons


The above photo is a mood board challenge that Scrapbook and Cards Today magazine had near the end of September. Last week they shared the winners with some of the submissions for the challenge and my card, although not the winning one, was posted! It put a big smile on my face to see my card and scrapbook page shared on their page!!


There are so many elements on this card! The balloons and the stars stood out the most from the mood board. And since the moose is my new favourite stamp and punch it just had to be used on this card!

October Crop in Support of Ronald MacDonald House Charities

Hello and thank you to those that joined us last month for our October all-day crop in support of Ronald McDonald House Charities! Today I'm sharing with you our four make and takes. Make and takes are provided at each crop using product found in the grabs bags. This month each attendee received the Noble Peacock foil sheets.

Embossing folders are perfect to use with any foil sheet. It really changes how it looks!

For the pocket page I left the Blueberry Bushel 3" x 4" pocket alone but ran the other 2 pockets through embossing folders (the Tin Tile for the larger 4" x 6" pocket and the Hammered Metal for the smaller 3" x 4" pocket). On the smaller pocket I used a Basic Black dark blend to colour some of the spots created by the embossing folder.

Lisa used a fabulous sketch to create this month's scrapbook page. She used the new Winter Knit 3d embossing folder with the lovely foil sheets - another beautiful page!

Isn't this little Snowman pillow box adorable? Perfect for Christmas, birthday or any other event! We used the foil for the circle behind the snowman and for the hat.

We would love for you to join us for our next all-day crop on Saturday November 23rd in support of Lily's Place Shelter. Register before November 7th by clicking here

Global Stamping Friends - Plaid

Hello and welcome to our November Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop using Plaid as our inspiration! There are so many options for plaid in both the Holiday and the Annual catalogues.

For my pocket page I created my own plaid using the Buffalo Check background stamp and a Stampin' Write Marker. Stamp the Buffalo Check first and then use a ruler to finish off the look of the plaid. I started with a piece of Whisper White card stock 5" x 4" and cut it up for both pockets so that the design would be the same.

The pockets were finished off with a bit of silver foil and Crumb Cake card stock die cut using the Frosted Frames die set.
