Do you remember this technique from a while back?  You use shaving cream and our Stampin’ Up! reinkers to create a fun background and so here is one of the cards that I made with it.

Isn’t that so pretty?  I used our Shimmery White paper as well as Pool Party, Tempting Turquoise and Daffodil Delight reinkers for this.  It’s a little messy but so much fun and you never know what kind of result you’re going to get and sometimes the colour mix determines what stamp set to use.

Here’s the list of products that I used.

I highly recommend that you give this technique a try.  Here is the link of the video for you.

Have fun and Happy Stamping!


Do you have a wedding or anniversary on your calendar soon?  This card just might give you an idea to create the perfect card for either of those occasions.

The So In Love stamp set and matching So Detailed Thinlits Dies are on the Retirement list and going for a good discount.  It’s actually a little cheaper than the bundle at $49.55 compared to the $62.00 for the bundle.

I cut out two of the detailed flower edge, one in Flirty Flamingo and the other in Whisper White.  Make sure that you use the Precision Base Plate to help cut all that detail.  The Die Brush(on at 30% off right now) also helps to get all the tiny pieces out.  They were then layered on the fold edge of the card base to give a subtle shadow effect.

Here’s the list of products that I used.  Some of them will be gone by May 31st, so if you love them, get them!

Have a great Tuesday and Happy Stamping!


Hello and welcome – today’s card was made with the new and coming to you soon Eastern Beauty stamp set and matching thinlits dies.

I followed along with the Freshly Made Sketches challenge sketch and ended up with this beauty.  I think that you’re going to really like having Thick Very Vanilla card stock available to create card bases as it give a beautifully sturdy card base.  The stripe of designer paper is new and called Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series paper and will go along very nicely with Island Indigo which is the colour I used here.  In order to pop up the greeting, I used the Duet Banner Punch and added that pretty line of tiny pearls.

Take a look at the sketch.

And, here’s the list of other products that I used.. Can’t show you the new stuff until June 1st!

Have a great Monday and Happy Stamping!


Good day and I’m excited to show you the projects I made from the April Paper Pumpkin kit today.  It’s called “A Sara Thing” and was designed by the CEO of Stampin’ Up!, Sara Douglass.

Take a look!

They’re very modern and stylish and fun to create.  I love the black and white theme with the touches of colour.  The image pieces were created with Watercolor Pencils and a small paintbrush, and check out those beautiful, beautiful flowers!  They’re acrylic and so easy to stick onto the card with Glue Dots.

The Paper Pumpkin kit arrives at your door as a monthly subscription, or you gave go the distance and subscribe for 3 month, 6 months or a year.  Take a look at my Website to see a bit more information and to get the link to sign up.

I highly recommend these kits as they make great gifts and you can take them anywhere to get a little crafting fun in wherever you may be.

Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Stamping!


Good day friends and I have another pretty card to show you that’s made with the new Eastern Palace Suite.

This beautiful suite of a stamp set, matching thinlits, paper, vinyl sticker and ink is coming to you in the new 2017-2018 Catalogue in June.  There are 14 thinlits available for you to create some beautiful combinations.  I’m sure that you will love this set!


Don’t forget to keep checking the retirement list to make sure that you have the items you need.  Some items are going quickly!  You can see them all, including pictures, on my Website.

Have a great day and Happy Stamping!


I just recently got a Sneak Peak at the brand new 2017-2018 catalogue from Stampin’ Up! and may I say – WOW!  We demonstrators are allowed to order some things early so today’s card shows off a new suite called Eastern Palace.

There’s also some new InColors on this card – can you see them? I love the names Stampin’ Up! chooses for their colours – we have Lemon Lime Twist, Fresh Fig and Tranquil Tide with the other 2 to come.

Another great thing is that they will soon carry Thick Very Vanilla cardstock and that’s what I used for the card base so I could play along with the CAS(E) this Sketch challenge.  The new designer series paper was the perfect pattern to use to get those peaks in the sketch!

Stay tuned as I have a few more projects to show you using this beautiful Easter Palace suite.

Happy Stamping!


How about some Baby Bear love for you today!  I’ve been busy playing with the Baby Bear stamp set.

Isn’t he a cutie?  I paired him up with a piece from the Cupcakes & Carousels designer paper stack and the Butterfly Basics stamp set.  If you look closely, you can see the butterflies on the card base compliments of the Fluttering embossing folder.

This layout comes from the latest Create with Connie and Mary sketch which made it easy for all the pieces to go together.

Have you been checking the Retirement list?  Some products are going away very quickly and I don’t want you to miss out on your favourites.  Check out the list on my website to make sure that you can still get the products that you want.

Good morning and welcome.  My young grandson is celebrating his 3rd birthday next week and he loves dinosaurs.  So what better stamp set to use for the occasion than, No Bones About It!

I matched it up with the bright and fun Party Animal Designer Series pape(page 5 of the 2017 Occasions catalogue) and had fun with the Large Numbers framelits.  It all looked a little bare so adding the Brights Enamel Shapes gave it that little extra oomph!

Here’s the full list of everything I used for this card.

Have a great day and Happy Stamping!


It’s the start of a long Easter weekend so I made this flowers for Easter card.

I used our Window Sheets to cover the oval opening and the flower from Butterfly Basics was coloured with Watercolour Pencils and a Blender Pen.

We do need to create using flowers as a theme up here as the meteorologists tell us to expect up to 25cm of snow today.  Ugh, Life in the northeaster part of British Columbia!

Here is a full list of all the products that I used.

Easter Blessings to you and happy stamping!


Last night I got together with some friends and we played with the Dragonfly Thinlits Dies and watercolouring.

A friend found this idea on Pinterest and so we got busy.  We used Aqua Painters and our ink pads to add the colours of Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Rose Red and Perfect Plum.  The spray of dragonflies was cut out of our Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper to keep with the main colour of Rose Red.

A cute greeting from Little Cuties from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue adds the occasion underlined with a line of tiny pearls.

Here’s the full list of products that we used.
