Gorgeous Painted Harvest, a must have!

By | September 17, 2017

Hello Stampers

Confession Time…. when the Holiday Catalogue came out I flipped passed the Painted Harvest stamp set.    I was so focused on what was available for Christmas that I dismissed this set.   WHAT WAS I THINKING?     Now that I own it, have played with it, I hope it carries over into the Annual Catalogue.    This set ranks up as one of my favs.   Oh Yes… I said that.      This is such a versatile stamp set.     In future posts I will share some other ideas…. but I am partial to the Wisteria Wonder / Night of Navy combination.

I am starting to gravitate towards clean cards and this is perfect for that.   It is a one layer card, but with the addition of the Gingham Bow, it makes it pop.

Some tips with using this stamp set.    It won’t be perfect… it is meant to have the watercolour look.      It is a two-step image and once you layer them together it is perfect.     Don’t try to be precise and just let it happen.

Hearts Come Home Envelope Card with Lights

By | September 13, 2017

Holiday Catalogue

Hello Stampers.

Welcome to the SUO Demos / Designers Showcase Blog Hop.   We are here to celebrate the launch of the 2017 Holiday Catalog.   And what an awesome catalog it is.     Grab a cup of tea, put your feet up and follow along on the Blog Hop.   Our goal is to inspire you.

My project uses the new stamp set “Hearts Come Home” with the co-ordinating “Hometown Greetings Edgelits” dies…. and yes this can be purchased as a bundle.     The complete list of product used is at the bottom of this post.

This is an Envelope Card.   The outside is pretty basic with a belly band.    The magic is on the inside of the card.   This  card folds to 6″ x 4″.

Hearts Come Home

Take off the belly band to reveal a city scene, complete with trees, houses, snowflakes, and even Santa flying through the night sky and tucked behind the curtain.

Hearts Come Home

 

But here is the magic.   Just under the deer is a battery.    Press on the battery to light up the card.      Ohhh so pretty and welcoming.

Hearts Come Home

 

I turned out the lights for this picture so you can see how the lights shine bright behind the houses.

Colorful Seasons Mason Jar, Stampin’ Up! Style

By | September 10, 2017

Hi Stampers

Now that September is here…. Fall is definitely in the air.   It might not be Fall on the calendar… yet, but the weather has turned cooler, the humidity is gone, the air conditioner is off and the windows are open.   Sleeping at night is comfortable .     This might be my favourite time of year.

Fairy Light Jars are everywhere and I love the little twinkle and warm glow the lights give off.   I wanted to create a Fall jar for myself and of course, incorporate some Stampin’ Up! product.      These pictures were taken during the day so you don’t get the full “glow” from the lights.     This is a 20 light string.    The next one I make I will get a 30 light string….. the more “glow” the better… right 🙂

Spooky Cat Treat Box – Video tutorial

By | September 3, 2017

Hi Stampers

Last week was my monthly Coffee and a Card at Coffee Culture Cafe, on Bramalea Road.    There is one more session before winter sets in – Wednesday September 27th.   I can’t express to you enough as to how much I enjoy taking this creative outlet of mine out into the community.   I look forward each month to going to the coffee shop and stamping with everyone.     Everyone has asked me if I am going to continue after September and I honestly don’t know how it would work in the winter.    I have images of snowfalls, shovelling driveways and cleaning off cars… never mind everyone coming to the coffee shop in their winter coats / boots.    I have to give this some thought as to how it would work.     But I digress…..why I am really posting….

Everyone that came out last Wednesday received a super cute (well I think so), Spooky Cat treat box.   Inside the box are two hard liquorice sticks from Bulk Barn.   They are 4 for $1.00…. what a great deal and I wanted to do something with them for a long time.       That is where the idea for the treat box came from.     The liquorice comes in a variety of flavours, but if you are going to make a Halloween Treat Box…. what is better than black liquorice… right?

Video, Tutorial

The picture above is the treat box that everyone received.    But I was asked by many on how to make them, what the dimensions were, etc.    So today… I have a quick video tutorial on how to make the box, with directions, dimensions.     In the video I used the Hat and Happy Halloween from the Spooky Cat stamp set.   Enjoy.

The Scoop

  • Spooky Cat stamp set (new)
  • Spooky Night Designer Series Paper (new)
  • Pumpkin Pie card stock
  • Very Vanilla card stock
  • Silver Glimmer Paper
  • Black Memento ink
  • Stitched Shapes Framelits

Maple Leaf Stampers – Team Get-Together

By | August 26, 2017

Hi Stampers

On August 12th, The Maple Leaf Stampers got together for some bonding, business topics, recognition and of course some stamping.   This is always a good time to connect with each other and discuss life and all things Stampin’ Up!

One of the projects we made was a direct copy from one of Holly Sten’s creations  (she is on the Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team).   Her card showcases beautifully the new Carols of Christmas stamp set and co-odinating die.      You have to admit… this card is gorgeous!   Thank you Holly for your creation.   I was originally going to do this card at the coffee shop, but figured it wasn’t a wise choice to bring all that glitter into the coffee shop.    🙂

Carols of Christmas

Another card the Team created uses the new Santa’s Suit stamp set and co-ordinating die.   Now this is confession time.   When I first saw this in the new Holiday Catalogue I thought “too cutesy, limited use”.   But when I went to put in my pre order I was strategic on my ordering.   I wanted one classic Christmas, one Halloween, one Fall and one whimsical Christmas set.    That is when I added Santa’s Suit.   I am so happy I did.   It is working its way to being one of my favs out of the Holiday Catalogue.   Oh.. .and if you are wondering if I stuck to my pre-order strategy…. NO!   Who was I kidding 🙂

 

Santa's Suit

The third card the Team made uses the Musical Season stamp set and co-ordinating die.   That is also new Designer Series Paper you see…. and check out that Champagne Foil paper.   Gorgeous!

Santa’s Suit and Mini Pizza Boxes

By | August 10, 2017

Hi Stampers

Who wants to see more sneak peaks from the Holiday Catalogue?    I love being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, especially when we get to pre order from the catalogues and get to play with product before it is released to our Customers.

Another item in the Holiday Catalogue are the Mini Pizza Boxes.   My prediction, they will be VERY popular!   They are at a great price point and are fun to work with.       This is my Mini Pizza Box Gift Enclosure Card set.   The Mini Pizza Box holds 6 Gift Enclosure Cards.   The cards are multi layered and popped up.   The box will hold 6 of these cards.   If they were flat, you could get 8-10 cards/envelopes in the box.

Santa's Suit

There are lots of detail on these Gift Cards.    Tiny pearls on Santa’s pants, glitter on the trim of Santa’s hat, coat and boots.   I hope these pictures inspire you.   I had a lot of fun putting this set together.

  • Santa’s Suit
  • Santa Builder Framelits Dies
  • Stitched Framelits

Santa’ s Suit, Oh My!

By | August 9, 2017

Hi Stampers

Oh My, Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators have seen the Holiday Catalogue and have started to pre order from it.   There is something for everyone.   Whimsical, Traditional, Religious… Stampin’ Up! have you covered for the holidays.

My strategy when purchasing from the Holiday catalogue this year was :

  • A whimsical set
  • A traditional set
  • One I love and had to have
  • A fall set
  • A Halloween set

Oh.. then there was the paper, embellishments, ribbon, accessories, etc. etc. etc.    I left a few items in the catalogue, but they are flagged for September.

This card uses the stamp set “Santa’s Suit” and the co-ordinating die “Santa Builder Framelits”.   This is my Whimsical set.    I hemmed and hawed at this set, but the more I looked at it, the more I had to have it.   And wouldn’t you know… it was the first set I cracked open when my order arrived.    The “HO HO HO” is from the Oh, What’s Fun stamp set.   I was so happy when it didn’t retire this year.   It is the perfect stamp set for whimsical Christmas cards.

Merry Mistletoe – Silver or Gold?

By | August 8, 2017

Hi Stampers

This card was the last card in the Merry Mistletoe Class.    We used some of the Embossing Paste with a bit of Dazzling Diamonds mixed in.    The deer was embossed in silver.      But… this wasn’t the original version.


Merry Mistletoe

When I originally started preparing for this class, the first card I made is below.   But when I finished prepping for the class, the card below didn’t match the rest of the cards in the class.   So, I reworked it to the one above.    But I love the card below.   So this is my Silver vs Gold comparison.    The same card, but in two different colours.   That is one of the things I love about stamping…… just change the colour to get a new look.

Merry Mistletoe

Which one is your favourite?

Merry Mistletoe Christmas Card

By | August 7, 2017

Hi Stampers

Another day, another Merry Mistletoe Christmas Card.    This is the 4th card in the Class.    This card is another one that can be mass produced for your Christmas needs.

 

Merry Mistletoe

 

Using your markers to colour the holly branch with Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler to get the two colours on the stamp.   I love this holly image, it is very delicate.

Merry Mistletoe Christmas Card

By | August 6, 2017

Hello Stampers

Wow… what a difference a day makes… okay, maybe three days.     I woke up yesterday at 7:00 am, cleaned the house and was ready and waiting for the Saturday Morning Stampers at 10:00 am.     Oh yes, that B12 shot has finally kicked in.    I feel almost normal (well… for me).

I have another Merry Mistletoe card to share with you.

This card is very basic, but the addition of the embossed Reindeer and a bit of ribbon adds the extra detail.    This was the 3rd of 5 cards that everyone made.   This would be a perfect card to mass produce.
