The other day, I received a lovely card in the mail that reminded me that it’s my 8th Anniversary as a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.
Isn’t it beautiful! It came from the Canadian office in Calgary, Alberta. Working as a demonstrator with Stampin’ Up! has been a wonderful experience and I’ve loved every minute of it.
I joined during Sale-A-Bration and got some extra perks when I did 8 years ago. That hasn’t changed because if you decide to Join my Team, you can get some extra perks as well! One of them could be a lovely anniversary card from Dale at the Calgary office.
There’s not much time left. Sale-A-Bration ends on March 31st so if you’ve been thinking of joining, check out the details and go for it. You’ll be in on early viewing (and ordering) of great new products whenever a new catalogue comes out. Go to This Linkto check it out.
What better way is there to celebrate the second day of spring than to add some butterflies to the pretty flowers from the Avant Garden stamp set!
It’s a 2-step stamping set which mades it easy to build your flowers as you want them. I stamped the flowers in Flirty Flamingo and then over-stamped them with Soft sky ink to give a bit of a shadow. The butterflies are compliments of the Butterfly Basics stamp set and the matching Bitty Butterfly Punch. They were first stamped with Soft Sky and sponged with Marina Mist to give them a little pop on the card. I love the softness of this card!
Just in case you need anything, here’s the full list of products I used.
Happy day to you and if you have a need for a birthday card, check out this one that uses the Avant Garden stamp set!
This lovely stamp set is available as a Free choice from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue – but hurry, this choice ends on March 31st!
I wanted to play along with the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week and thought that it was the perfect way to show off that lovely flower on a background of the Succulent Garden designer series paper!
Here’s the sketch layout in case you’d like to use it for your own inspiration.
I used the Old Olive Watercolour Pencil for the stem and leaves on the flower and a Blender Pen to add the Sugarplum ink to the blooms. An aptly significant card since today is the First Day of SPRING!!!
Live with Passion – what a great incentive to keep in mind! I pulled out the Beautiful You stamp set for today’s card( I hadn’t given it any love in a while).
I still have a few pieces of the Falling in Love Designer series paper, so added that lovely background piece. When you want to watercolour I advise that you use our Shimmery White paper as it won’t pill as much and watercoloring is what I wanted to do.
Adding the greeting just so and finishing off with those bright stars makes this card one of my favourites!
Here’s the list of products that I used. If you haven’t yet purchased the Beautiful You stamp set, just click on the picture to go directly to my online store.
This card is done up nicely in Calypso Coral and the lovely Succulent Garden designer series paper. Can you see the Delicate details lacy border in behind the main image? I think it adds just the right touch.

Hi there and take a look at today’s clean and simple card!
I used the Touches of Texture stamp set and added the lovely greeting from Dragonfly Dreams to finish it off! It’s a great way to combine the stamp sets you already have with the new that are in the 2017 Occasions Catalogue.
This card also involved some colouring with our Stampin’ Write Markers and yes, I used all the colour families for this.
Here’s the list for you in case you’d like to give this card a try over the weekend.
I enjoy attending Cynthia’s card and scrapbook classes. Her studio is comfortable and bright. I really like the colour combinations she uses. She is very organized and does the prep work allowing you to concentrate on the techniques. She is very flexible, even if you want to make some changes to make the project “your own”. I highly recommend Cynthia as a demonstrator!
I really enjoy Cynthia’s creative skills and look forward to going to her classes and workshops. Cynthia always has fun and inspirational project ideas. She is always ready to lend a hand and help you where needed, if she doesn’t have an answer for you, she will do her best to find one ASAP. I would go to any one of her classes or workshops anytime for years to come.
Having Cynthia as my upline has been a very pleasant experience for me. She is always available to answer my questions and is very knowledgeable about Stampin’ Up products. I have attended her classes and they are very professional and well organized. I am always excited to share the projects she demonstrates with my customers after attending her classes. She puts a lot of thought and effort into planning her classes. I am very fortunate to have met Cynthia, and am looking forward to learning from her for many years to come. Thanks Cynthia....you are the best!!
Cynthia’s classes are set up very thorough and professional. I learn something new at every class and it is always a fun night out. Cynthia gives a lot of inspiration in everything she does and keeps us looking at her blog. Cynthia knows her product very well and keeps us all informed on new products and sales!
