SUNSHINE AND ROSES

It may be very cold up here in northeastern BC, but when the sun shines, it lights up the mood!  So, it also inspired me to pull out the To A Wild Rose Bundle and get creating.

I decided to play around with our Pigment Sprinkles and love the way the different colours add highlights to those pretty roses.  It just seemed appropriate to give them a white edge, so out came the Versamark and White Emboss Powder.  TIP:  I used the Heat Tool to dry the paper after the sprinkles making it much easier to add the heat embossing!

The new Freshly Made Sketches layout came into play here with a piece of the Peaceful Poppies DSP and a small side plate to cut the rounded edge.

Here’s the list of products used.

ANOTHER VALENTINE

Hi and welcome!  Today, I’m showing you another Valentine card that I created to send to our Canadian Veterans.  I love the Special Someone stamp set(151643), the critters are just so darn cute!

Aww, how cute is that raccoon with his balloon!  This is a 2-Step stamp set, so creating these cuties is really easy.  I stamped the detail image first with Soft Suede ink and then added the other image using Crumb Cake ink.

Yes, the string and balloon were “fussy-cut” so I could add them over top of the image.  That beautiful background is a piece from the From My Heart Specialty designer paper(151189).

Here’s the list of products used.  Make sure to check them out by clicking on the image.

POPPIES ABOUND

Let’s go back to the Peaceful Poppies Suite today!  This is such a beautiful suite with it’s bright colours and beautiful poppy flowers!

With this really cold weather we’ve been experiencing, I thought it best to add some brightly coloured poppies to this card.  I pulled up the new sketch layout from CAS(E) this sketch and got to work!  I didn’t follow the sketch exactly as shown, but think that the addition of the circles takes the place of the square shape shown on the sketch.

The Peaceful Moments stamp set is just full of beautiful sentiments and is a great addition to this suite.

Here’s the list of products used.

IS IT TOO EARLY FOR A VALENTINE CARD

Is it too early for a Valentine card?  Time does go by quickly so I decided to get creative with the new Special Someone photopolymer stamp set from the Occasions mini catalogue.

The images in this set are so cute and you can create them with the 2-Step stamping method.  I also wanted to show off some of the beautiful designs in the From my Heart Specialty designer paper so pulled this sketch posted by TGIF challenges.

We Canadian SU Demonstrators are creating Valentines for our Veterans and this is one of the cards that I will be sending.

Here’s the list of products used.

INTRODUCING THE PEACEFUL POPPIES SUITE

Have you checked out the Peaceful Poppies Suite yet?  There are so many beautiful pieces to it that it’s hard to list them all so I created a simple card to show you some of these lovely products.

It starts with the Painted Poppies bundle paired up with the Peaceful Moments stamp set(for the greeting).  The background paper is from the beautiful Peaceful Poppies Designer series paper – there are many more beautiful pages as well so make sure to check it all out!

This lovely simple sketch from Freshly Made Sketches was my starting point.

Here’s the list of products that I used.  Note – one of the colours in this Suite is Poppy Parade!  So appropriate isn’t it?

TRY A LITTLE SUNSHINE

Hi, I’m back with the Honey Bee bundle again!  Because a little bee-enfused sunshine and happiness seems like a good way to end this week!

There are so many beautiful designs in the Golden Honey Specialty designer paper and they just have to be shown off!  I matched up the honeycomb design with a little piece done in Pineapple Punch behind the hive.  Just drag the ink pad across a piece of whisper white cardstock and the die does the rest!  The flowers were coloured “direct to stamp” with Call Me Clover and Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Write Markers.

Here’s the full list of products used.

HONEY BEE BUNDLE

The Honey Bee Bundle is another stamp set that I smiled at while browsing through the new 2020 Occasions Mini Catalogue.  And, the matching dies make it so easy to create a busy bee hive!

There’s also the beautiful Golden Honey Specialty designer paper from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue to amp things up to a whole new level!  I used a piece for the background on this card.  You can earn this beautiful paper pack with just a $60 purchase!

I wanted to play along with The Paper Players first challenge of the new year.  So this card is the “something new” that I’m playing along with!
