HUMMING ALONG FOR PEOPLE LIKE YOU

Wow, what a cold and snowy weekend we had!  So, while I was tucked away in my stamp room I went to the Humming Along Cling stamp set to put a little spring warmth in my day!

This card is one of the pretties we’ll be creating at this Wednesday’s class!  So simple but packing a Wow with the Blueberry Bushel coloured Humming bird!

I am playing along last minute with the new Freshly Made Sketches layout and used the Envelope Punch Board to round those corners on the background designer paper!

Here’s the full list of “ingredients” used to create this little pretty!

HAVE AN AMAZING BIRTHDAY WITH THE HUMMING ALONG BUNDLE

The Humming Along Cling Bundle has an amazingly beautiful flower in it so today’s card features it!

That amazing flower was coloured with the Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends combo to make it pop!  The matching Hummingbird Framelits Dies are the perfect accessory to cut out that bright flower and the perfect label for the sentiment!

It all looks great with the Lemon Lime Twist card base and the new Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series paper!  You must check this package out – it has so many beautiful designs to use on your projects!

Here’s the list of products that I used.

LOVELY LATTICE FROM THE SALE-A-BRATION CATALOGUE

Today I’m showing off two great cling stamp sets from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue.  Presenting…….Lovely Lattice and Part of My Story!

Isn’t it just so beautiful?  I see many opportunities with this stamp set – you can make that spray of flowers any colour that you want! I choose to use the colours that The Paper Players challenged us to use, Grapefruit Grove, Pool Party and Daffodil Delight.  The fourth colour I choose is Mint Macaron for the leaves!

The greeting is from the Part of My Story stamp set and I did some “masking” to get just the word – friend.

TIP:  I use scotch tape to cover up the part of the stamp that I don’t want to show.  Just ink it up, remove the tape and then stamp your preferred word!

Here’s the list of products I used.

Have a great day and Happy Stamping!

ANIMAL OUTING

It’s been a chilly week (-20c or -4 fahrenheit) here in northeastern British Columbia so I went to the Animal Outing stamp set for a little warmth with this very cute Kangaroo and her joey!

The Paper Players posted a theme challenge “Crazy About Critters” and what better way to portray that than with the Animal Outing stamp set.

Our Stampin’ Blends added colour and the Big Shot die-cutting machine helped to create that narrow frame for those two cuties!

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

Happy Stamping to you!

A WARM CUP OF TEA

Hi and welcome!  I’m starting the week off with a warm cup of tea that uses the Tea Together Cling stamp set and the matching Tea Time Framelits dies.

You will find the Tea Together cling stamp set in the 2019 Occasions Catalogue and the Tea Time Framelits dies are a FREE choice in the 2019 Sale-A-Bration Catalogue.

The background was created by using the Lace Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on Vellum.  It’s soooo pretty.

I followed along with the new CAS(E) this sketch challenge to show off that lovely tea cup and beautiful rose.

The tea cup and flowers were first heat embossed with Gold Emboss powder and then the rose was coloured with the Calypso Coral and Old Olive Watercolour pencils.

TIP:  I wanted the embossed vellum piece to stay firmly on the card front so used a Stampin’ Sponge and our Liquid Multipurpose glue.  Just squeeze some of the glue onto the Silicone Craft Sheet and use the piece of sponge to lightly spread the glue onto the back of the vellum.  This way, the glue won’t show and the vellum piece will be firmly attached!

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

I have been busy working on my Class Schedule and January classes are posted.  You can check it out HERE.  I hope that you can join in and have fun stamping with me!

Have a great Monday and see you again tomorrow!

HUMMINGBIRD BIRTHDAY

It’s a hummingbird kind of day here today.  Not literally as we have a couple of feet of snow but the hummingbirds rest in our hearts and minds!

Whenever new products arrive from Stampin’ Up!, I go to the catalogue for inspiration and that’s what I did with this card.  You will find the original on page 36 of the 2019 Occasions Catalogue.

It was a sunny day when I made this card so it was a pleasure to colour this little beauty and imagine seeing the humming birds arrive this summer!

I used quite a few supplies to create this card, so here is the list for you.

HAVE A GOLDEN CHRISTMAS

I’m wishing you all a golden Christmas and here’s the card to send those greetings!

This is one last Christmas card for 2018 which allowed me to play along with the What Will You Stamp challenge as well as the SUO Challenge.

Peaceful Poinsettia is the stamp set of choice for WWYS and we can choose our own design for the SUO Challenge so I kept it simple with a little textured embossing and some heat embossing with our Gold Emboss Powder.

Here’s the list of products used.

Have a wonderfully golden Christmas and we’ll talk again next week!

AT PEACE BY THE RIVER

Happy Friday and welcome!  Today’s card features the beautiful Peaceful Place stamp set that’s available in Clear-mount and Wood-mount.  One of the stamps features a lovely, peaceful scene so I went all-in and did a little colouring.

It didn’t take much to add colour using our Stampin’ Blends markers and a touch or two of the Colour Lifter gave it just the right amount of shading.

I choose to use Old Olive as the card base and frame to play along with the new layout from Freshly Made Sketches.

I have another stamp set in mind for this layout as well and will be posting it next week!

In the meantime, here’s the list of products for you.

Have a wonderful and hopefully peaceful weekend!  Happy Stamping!

LOVELY BAUBLES TO DECK YOUR HALLS

Welcome to you and thanks so much for stopping by on this wintery Monday!  Today’s card is a study in white and gold to show off the Beautiful Baubles stamp set.

Who wouldn’t want those beautiful baubles decking their halls?!

I started out with the great simple sketch from the Fab Friday challenge and went from there.

The Stamparatus is a fabulous tool to help keep the greeting and image exactly where you want them.  A little wipe with the embossing buddy before stamping helps to keep the embossing powder in the right place!

I also used our Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere those thin stripes of Gold Foil.  It’s tough stuff and dries clear!

Here’s the list of products that I used.

SINCERELY SANTA GOODIE BOX

Have you started your Christmas shopping yet?  I’m a little late this year but have been busy making goodie boxes for small treats!

This one was created using our Lustrous White mini gable boxes but with a different technique.  I used the Sponge Brayer to add colour to the box itself.  This is Cherry Cobbler ink and I choose to leave it a lighter tone so the designer paper would stand out!  Here’s another angle.

TIP:  To keep the colour only on the outside of the box, I slipped a piece of printer paper inside the unopened box before using the brayer to add colour.

Now, i just need to create a few more to hold those special treats!

Here’s the list of products that I used.
