Hi there and take a look at the new Lemon Lime Twist InColor for 2017-2018!  It makes a great background for just about any image that you want to add to your project.

I used the You’ve Got This stamp set to highlight and watercolour the flower image to show off that great lemon lime colour.  The line of “squiggles” behind the image are compliments of the Lovely Inside & Out stamp set(new for this year)!

TIP:  When you want to do some watercolouring, use the Shimmery White cardstock as it will take the water better.

Have you received your new 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue yet?  If you are on my client list it should be in your mailbox very soon.  If you would like a catalogue and don’t have a relationship with a Demonstrator, make sure to Contact Me and I’ll get one to you.

Here’s the list of products used for today’s card.

Have a great Long weekend and Happy Stamping!


Happy day to you and today’s card features the new InColor called Tranquil Tide.  This colour goes wonderfully well with the Succulent Garden designer paper so I had to use it!

I punched out that Bitty Butterfly with tranquil tide as well and added some stamped detail from the Best Birds stamp set(page 53 Annual Catalogue).

The branch was inked up with the “direct to stamp” technique which simply means that you use Stampin’ Write Markers to add different colours to the image.  Then, before you stamp it onto your paper, make sure to “huff” on it to re-moisten the ink.  Easy-Peasy!

Here’s the list of products for you.

Thanks so much for visiting today and Happy Stamping!


Hi there.  Today I’m showing you another card that uses the Shaving cream technique to create these delicious looking cupcakes for a birthday.

I used the Sweet Cupcake bundle for this one and a piece of designer paper from the Festive Birthday pack.  Don’t those cupcakes look yummy?

This technique is so much fun to do and, as you can see, I added a shot of Rose Red Reinker to get that strawberry flavour look.

TIP:  Don’t add more than about 4 colours as you could end up with it looking muddy.

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!


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.

It’s good-bye time for this sassy chick from the Hey, Chick Sale-A-Bration catalogue.

This card was so much fun to create!  I coloured that Sassy girl with the Calypso Coral Watercolor pencil and used the Aqua Painter to lightly blend it up into the white areas.  Since she was stamped onto Whisper White card stock, you don’t want to use too much water and “pill” the paper.

Here’s the full list of products for you.

Stay sassy yourself, and Happy Stamping!


This is the last time I’ll be working with this lovely stamp set called Avant Garden.  It is one of your Free Choices from Sale-A-Bration and it goes away forever this Friday, March 31st (insert sad face here).


I’m calling this card “Avant Garden Collage” because it is a 2-step Stamping set and lends itself very well to creating a lovely collage.

The greeting was cut out with the Oval Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies and just popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Here’s the full list of products that I used.  If you are placing an order and want this lovely stamp set, just click on the picture.

Happy Stamping.


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!!!

Here’s the list of products that I used.

That’s it for today.  Take care and Happy Stamping!


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.
