Today I thought that I’d share this combination called Hello Flamingo with you.  It shows how you can use the Color Theory Designer Series paper stack with any stamp set in the 2017-2018 Catalogue.

I attached a 3-3/4″ x 5-1/2″ piece of the designer paper to the front of the card and then added each image to follow along with the CAS(E) this Sketch layout.  Each piece was stamped onto a piece of whisper white cardstock and then cut out with our Paper Snips. The pineapple, from the Pop of Paradise stamp set,  was coloured “direct to stamp” with the Crushed Curry and Garden Green Markers.  Looks nice and summer-y don’t you think?

Here’s a copy of the sketch so you can see the layout.

I’ve posted the Class that I’m offering for the month of June.  Please visit my Class Calendar to check them out and to sign up.

Here’s the full list of products that I used for today’s card.  You might like to give this idea a try.

I hope to see you join us in my stamp room.  Happy Stamping!


Good day to you and I’m happy to report that I now have classes scheduled for the months of February and March.


I’m introducing a Technique class for each month and will feature at least one new technique for you to enjoy.  It will be fun and be prepared to get your fingers very inky!


Sale-A-Oration is over at the end of March, so if you want to get in on Free stuff, make sure to book a party or a special class just for you and your friends!

Take care and Happy Stamping to you!



Love is in the air with another valentine card created with the fun Life Me Up Bundle from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue.

Love in the air -


I added a background of dots from the Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper and laid that big red heart on top.  That gave me the perfect background for those hot-air balloons to sail away on.  Check out the clouds, a couple were stamped with Smoky Slate ink and then cut out with the matching Up & Away Thinlits dies.

Happy Friday to you and here’s a Christmas star to carry you over the weekend.


This was created using the absolutely beautiful Star of Light Bundle from the Holiday Catalogue.  It’s so lovely and will be included in several of my upcoming Christmas card classes.

NOTE:  I made a boo-boo on this card by adding the Retired and unavailable Iridescent Ice Stampin’ Emboss Powder BUT you can use the Dazzling Diamonds Glitter(133751) and Heat & Stick powder(100625) to get the same sparkly effect.

I encourage you to join in on my Card Classes – it’s the best way to get your Christmas stamp done ahead of time.  See my CLASS CALENDAR to sign up.

Here’s the full list of products that I used to create this beautiful card.
