JOURNEY OF FRIENDS

Hi there and welcome.  Do you have those friends that you are willing to take a journey of life with?  I think that the Peaceful Place stamp set is the perfect way to start that journey.

The perfect sentiment came from the new Good Morning Magnolia stamp set and sets off this peaceful picture perfectly.

I stamped the image first in Pear Pizzazz classic ink and then again in Old Olive classic ink.  The Stamparatus makes it really easy to over-stamp and is great for larger stamps!  If you have arthritus in your hands I highly recommend using this great tool!

Here’s the list of products used.

A TRIO OF HAPPY PLANTS

Good day to you.  The weather has been perfect for planting but today I planted these pretty plants on paper!

The Sitting Here photopolymer stamp set is on the Last Chance list so I decided to use it one last time for The Paper Players Challenge.

I used several of the Stampin’ Write Markers from 4 different Colour families.  Since the challenge is clean and simple, I decided to keep the colours to just Seaside Spray(New 2019-2021 InColor) and Whisper White.

Here’s the list of products for you.


I was delighted to find that I was chosen as one of the winners for last week’s Paper Players challenge with this card.  Thank you!

Have a great day and Happy Stamping!

GOOD MORNING MAGNOLIA

Here’s another sneak peek of the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set and matching Magnolia Memory Dies for you on this Monday!

This is the largest stamp in this 2-piece set and it is magnificent!  I was a little worried about how to colour it but pulled out the Stampin’ Blends and went for it!  Not sure if magnolias come in yellow but hey, a little imagination doesn’t hurt for this beautiful flower!

The background piece is from the Magnolia Lane Designer Series paper and I matched it to the card base of Mossy Meadow.

There’s a few extra new things on this card so I won’t post the product list for you.

SAYING HELLO THREE TIMES

Three times hello to you on this lovely Sunday!  The birds have been busy building nests and “talking” these days and that is where the inspiration for this card came from!

The Free As A Bird stamp set and matching Stitched Labels Dies were one of the first items I placed on my Pre-order for the new Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue!  I love those little birds sitting in a row.

It was a great way to get some colouring in too and I used a good selection of our Stampin’ Blends.  I stamped the image on a piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock and then “fussy cut” them after colouring.  Those birdcages came from the Bird Ballad Designer Series paper and I thought that they’d make a great background for that trio of birds!

It was easy to follow the layout from Freshly Made Sketches and I used a piece of twine from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack for the circles on the sketch.

Here’s the list of products used.  NOTE: I can’t show you the new items yet so that’s why they’re not on the list.

Happy Stamping!

A CARD OF MANY COLOURS

Hello and welcome.  I went all out with colours for today’s card…..

….Wow, who wouldn’t enjoy receiving this card!

The Paper Players posted a very colourful challenge this week so I used cardstock instead of ink to show off those colours.

Each strip was cut at 1/4″ wide and then once all of the colours were lined up, I glued them down using the Fine-Tip Glue Pen.  Then it was just a matter of trimming them along the edge with Paper Snips.

I wanted the die-cut greeting to stand out, so layered it onto Whisper white to give it a subtle shadow.  A tiny bow finishes it off!

Here’s the list of products used.  Reminder, Stampin’ Up! has retired the Big Shot and Stampin’ Trimmer that is why they are not listed.

HELLO MAGNOLIA

Hello to you and today I’m showing off what you can create with the Good Morning Magnolia Cling Bundle.

When you’re looking for inspiration, look no further than the Stampin’ Up! Catalogue.  This is my take on an idea in the new catalogue that uses Stampin’ Blends and the new Stitched Nested Labels Dies as well.  A little vellum adds a great muted accent over the Magnolia Lane designer series paper!

I used the reverse side of the Purple Posy Stitched Linen Ribbon for a little extra accent as well.  I’m loving this stamp set and have a few more ideas in the works!

Here’s a list of basic products that I used.

Take care and Happy Stamping to you!

NEW STUFF IN THE HOUSE

Wohoo, there’s new stuff in the house and I wasted no time checking it all out!  From the stamp sets to the dies to the paper and ink  I’m excited about it all.

The New 2019-2021 InColors are beautiful in real life and I combined two of them for this simple card.

The card base is the new Pretty Peacock InColor and the ribbon and greeting are Rococoa Rose.  Love them both!

The greeting is from Free As A Bird bundle which includes Stitched Nested Labels Dies.

There’s lots to be happy about in the New 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue and you should be starting to receive yours within the next couple of weeks.

In the meantime – have you satisfied your cravings with Retiring products?  They will be gone soon, so make sure to get your lists filled very soon.  Visit my Online Store to shop.

Have a great day and Happy Stamping!

IT’S WEDDING SEASON

Happy Monday!  I hope that all of you Mother’s out there had a fabulous day and were unashamedly spoiled!  I was and enjoyed every minute of it.

It’s wedding season and it’s always a great idea to have a card or two on hand to give to the happy couple.

I combined the Meant to Be Bundle with the Special Celebrations stamp set for this one.  A little gold embossing and tiny dots of colour help to set off those tiny roses.  I couldn’t resist using the Country Floral embossing folder either.  A little texture doesn’t hurt!

Here’s the list of products for you.

SPRINGTIME BLOOMS

It’s looking and feeling a lot more like spring here now.  Whew, it was a long winter!  I’ve been thinking of spring flowers so created this card with a lovely and bright spray of happy springtime blooms.

The Colorful Seasons stamp set is the perfect all-season set to use and it lived up to it for this card.  The matching dies really help to pop up those pretty Melon Mambo flowers too!

I followed along with the new Freshly Made Sketches layout which is why I used the Country Floral embossing folder for the background piece.

Here’s the list of products for you.

Enjoy spring and everything it brings and Happy Stamping!

MY FRIEND THE DEER

We live outside of town and frequently have visitors – I call them my friendly deer.  They help to trim up my flower beds and just look great wandering around our yard.  Today’s card was inspired by their visits.

I combined the Waterfront photopolymer stamp set and Dashing Deer for this card.  (Yes, can still purchase the Dashing Deer stamp set and matching dies).  The friend theme comes from The Paper Players latest challenge.

Here’s the list of products for you. 

Have a great day and Happy Stamping.
