Poppy Thanks

The Peaceful Poppies Elements are retiring at the beginning of June. They are pre-cut elements that you can colour or leave as they are! There are multiple sheets in the pack. Some black embossed pieces such as the scalloped piece I used as a trim in my card, poppies & leaves embossed onto Vellum and also onto water colour paper. For this card I used an Aqua Painter with Rich Razzleberry and Poppy Parade inks to water colour wash one of the pieces. Then after it was dried I placed one of the vellum poppies on top. To finish off the flower I added a pearl to the center. If you would like to order the Peaceful Poppies Elements I recommend ordering them soon as they might sell out fast.

This card was created during my Facebook live recently. The video is below if you missed watching it. Join me tonight at 7pm for my next live!

Detailed Deer Pocket Page


The Dashing Deer stamp set and matching dies were perfect for pictures of our little excursion to find some deer in a field nearby my parent's home. And the Best Dressed designer series paper is very versatile for many projects. It was the perfect match for the deer images and pictures of our excursion.

Ornate Garden Birthday Card

The Ornate Garden suite is an early release of product that will be available in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue. I stamped the Ornate Style stamp onto Soft Sea Foam card stock using Memento ink. Then coloured in the images using Stampin' Blends. If you look closely at the photo above you will notice that some of the colours did bleed a bit. Coloured card stock is not the best to use with Stampin' Blends - Whisper White or Very Vanilla card stock is the preferred ones to use. When using the Blends on coloured card stock try and use a small amount and not over blend or colour the image. This will limit the amount of bleeding that happens.

The Best Days

My upline's April team meeting was held on Zoom. It was great to see everyone. Lisa had given us a list of products needed for our make and take card. I started with choosing a piece of designer series paper to use. Then went through my card stock to see what colours I wanted to pair with it. Ended up being Shaded Spruce for the card base, Soft Sea Foam for the Label Me Lovely Punch and the strip along the designer series paper, and Old Olive & Garden Green scraps for the Leaf Punch.

Everyone's turned out differently depending on what we chose! Definitely a great way to get together during this weird time of COVID-19.

A Colour Combo and A Sketch!

For the past few weeks Stampin' Up! has given demonstrators a #KeepStamping challenge on the Demonstrator Facebook page. This week we were given a colour challenge.
I used this colour challenge along with a sketch that my upline, Lisa, shared last week on our team page. Both were great inspiration to create a 12"x12" scrapbook page for 2 pictures I found stuck inside a page protector of my 2010 album. Sometimes I will slide pictures inside pockets or page protectors to hold their place in the album and then mark the page with a sticky note so that I can find it later. Now I have a completed page, once I add some journaling and date to the page.

This scrapbook page was created during my Facebook live. The video is below if you missed watching it. Join me next Thursday at 7pm for my next live!

Global Stamping Friends - Twisted

Welcome to the Global Stamping Friends April Blog Hop! Our theme this month is Twisted - use a product in a different way than originally designed or create one project and then change it into another project!
I was stumped at first what I wanted to create! My creativity lately has been very low with our lives being changed by the COVID-19 virus. But last Saturday I helped run an online crop instead of an all-day crop we normally do and it sparked my crafting.

On page 66 and 67 of the January-June 2020 Mini catalogue there is a wonderful example of taking one project and twisting it into other projects using the same stamp, dies and/or colours. I used the Breathtaking Bouquet background stamp projects as inspiration for my own! Instead I used products from the new Ornate Garden suite.
I  trimmed one of the beautiful sheets of the Ornate Garden specialty designer series paper for the card, stamped and coloured the small daisy stamp with Stampin' Blends. To make my twisted project I drew inspiration from the 8.5" x 11" scrapbook page and created a 12"x12" scrapbook page.

The Ornate Garden specialty DSP was cut down to 5"x7" for my scrapbook page. I punched small flowers using the Small Bloom punch that was available during Sale-A-Bration and will be returning in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue. Once punched I embossed them with my Big Shot and the Subtle embossing folder. Peaking out from behind the DSP is a piece of Terracotta Tile die cut using the Ornate Layers dies.
