It’s Friday and over the weekend my husband will be in his garage working on vehicles.  So, why not get a really early jump on a Father’s Day card!

This card was inspired by the great layout from Freshly Made Sketches with all of those gears and nuts and bolts!  I stamped over the Basic Gray and Crushed Curry with the “smear” stamp using Sahara Sand ink,  to give the illusion of grease just to add a bit more interest.  The same was done over the greeting tab – why not make it look a little like it just came out of the garage!

Check out this great sketch.

From flowers to gears, today’s card highlights the beauty of using Stampin’ Up! stamp sets and accessories!

This “you’re a Classic” card was created with the Geared Up Garage Cling Bundle (150610) .

I wanted the gears to stand out so first embossed the Basic Gray cardstock with the Pinewood Planks embossing folder, then cut them out with the proper thinlit die.  To give them a little more depth I used a Stampin’ Sponge to add a little of the Whisper White craft ink and then glued them down with our excellent Fine-Tip Glue pen.

Here’s the list of products used. See anything you need?  Just click on the picture to go directly to my Online Store!

Take care and Happy Stamping to you!


When I first saw the Geared Up Garage cling bundle I just had to have it.  What better stamp set to create with for the guys in my life!  My husband and eldest grandson both drag race so it was the perfect choice for cards for them!

My grandson’s birthday is next week so guess where this one is going, lol!

The matching Classic Garage 6″ x6″ designer series paper adds just the right touch too!  This bundle and matching accessories will be a focus of an upcoming Card Class, so stay tuned!

In the meantime, here’s the list of products that I used.

Hi and welcome to Cynthia’s Creative Corner!  December is a busy month not only because of Christmas but our family has quite a few birthdays happening as well!

Today’s card is a simple birthday wish for my husband!  He has blue eyes and looks great in blue, so I used that colour as the focal point!

Freshly Made Sketches posted a simple layout so it was easy to  follow along with it.

The Sunshine Sayings stamp set has some great sentiments and it was easy to choose the ones I wanted to use.  The hearts come from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits Dies!

Here’s the list of everything I used.

Thank you so much for visiting today and Happy Stamping to you!


There’s lots of candles of today’s card – who doesn’t like lots of candle to celebrate a birthday!

This card is a bit of a step away from my usual kind of stamping.  It’s a very modern take using the fabulous Broadway Bound Specialty designer series paper.  No need to stamp a lot of candles, they’re already there for you.  All I did was add a bit of the Lovely Lipstick ribbon and, thanks to Itty Bitty Greetings, adding the greeting was easy!

TIP:  to anchor the bow on the ribbon, use a Mini Glue Dot.  It makes it easy to tie the bow!

Here’s the full list of everything I used.

Are you getting ready for Father’s Day early or do you wait until it’s closer to the date?  I decided to get an early start on Father’s Day this year and have this cute card ready to show you.

I started with this great layout from Freshly Made Sketches and went from there with a card base of the returning Mint Macaron decorated with strips from Nature’s Poem Designer Series paper!  The Call Me Clover letters were created by using the new and fun Layering Alphabet Edgeless Dies.

I needed just the right greeting and found it in the Varied Vases stamp set!  Presto – a fun card for Dad!


The Share What You Love Suite is only available as bundles until May 31, 2018!  If you like the idea of saving some $$’s, then my advice is to select them now.  Once June 1st comes around they will only be available as single choices.

Last Chance (Retiring) Products are going away for good on May 31, 2018!  Make sure that you have everything you need and love before then.. Visit my Online Store to stock up!

Have a fabulous and fun weekend and Happy Stamping!


These birthday boots are made for walking’!  I used the Country Livin’ stamp set for today’s clean and simple card.

Checking out the CAS(E) this sketch challenge was all of the inspiration I needed to get started!

I wanted to use our Watercolour Pencils to colour the boots but didn’t want the ink to smear, so I heat embossed the image to seal the Night of Navy ink before colouring.

The Color Theory Designer Series paper is on the Retirement list as are the Regals Enamel Shapes so I had to get in at least one more project using them!

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

Happy Stamping to you!


I’ve been trying to build up my masculine birthday card collection and making a grand birthday card is easy with the Truly Tailored stamp set and matching accessories.

I started out with a piece from the True Gentleman Designer Series paper and added that lovely button for good measure.

The colour choice was easy – Night of Navy and Tranquil Tide are the main colours in this paper so it was only natural to use them for the greeting.  Now I have one more card to add to my collection!

Here’s the product list for you.

A while back I held a class to make calendar pages for this year and today’s post shows four of the pages that were created.

Sometimes it’s hard to decide what each month’s theme will be but these four months were easy!

We have a Mother’s Day theme for May, Father’s Day for June, Canada Day for July and the perfect summer scene for August!

I used Graceful Garden(143849, 143846), Truly Tailored(145735, 145732), the Colorful Seasons Bundle(145348), You’re Inspiring(145808, 145805) and Waterfront(146386) stamp sets for these pages and am so happy with the way that they all turned out.

If you are looking to add some (or all) of these sets to your collection, visit my Website to shop.  The Waterfront and Truly Tailored sets are from the Occasions Catalogue and are available until May 31, 2018.

Happy Stamping!


It’s the start of a brand new week and today’s card focuses on a masculine card for a classy kind of guy.

Friday’s post showed a card layout that I used from Splitcoast Stampers so I used the same layout for today’s card.

The bow ties from the True Gentleman designer series paper are so cute and they make the focal point of this classy card.

I did a little work with our Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop up the comb and “classy” part of the greeting that were stamped with Tranquil Tide ink.  This card is geared for a birthday but it can also be used for a Father’s day card as well.

Here’s the list of products that I used.

Happy Stamping!
