Tag: The Paper Players


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!


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.

We’re looking forward to a little warmer weather over the weekend but it does look like we’ll be back in the very cold temperatures next week.  Brrr!

Happy Stamping to you!


Have you finished with your Christmas gift shopping yet?  Do you have a good supply of Christmas Gift tags?  Maybe these will give you a little inspiration.

I’m always short on tags so put these together to add to my growing gift tag collection.  The colour scheme comes from The Paper Players challenge to use Real Red, Shaded Spruce and a colour of my choice(Whisper White).

The base for the tags was cut out of Real Red and Shaded Spruce with the Tag Topper Scalloped Punch.  I used the punch again to cut out the matching designer paper and went from there.  I really like the Sincerely Santa stamp set (WM) (CM) for it’s great greetings that are perfect for tags!

Have you checked out the list for the Year-End Closeout going on now?  Some of these items will go very quickly so make sure that you check them out in my Online Store.

It took a few things to create these gift tags – check out this list below.

The Snowflake Showcase products are soon going away on Friday, November 30, 2018!   So I took this opportunity to create just one more card to show off these three lovely trees with the Snow is Glistening photopolymer stamp set!

Don’t they look great on the background of Soft Sea Foam?  I stamped the tree 3 times, twice with Versamark and once with the Soft Sea Foam ink and then did a little heat embossing.  White emboss powder for the Soft Sea Foam trees and Clear emboss powder for the soft sea foam tree.  So lovely!

I arranged those trees according to The Paper Players sketch

and added some texture to the card front with the Softly Falling  embossing folder.

If you haven’t yet, make sure to get your favourites from the Snowflake Showcase items.

Here’s the full list of products that I used for these three lovely trees!

Hi out there and welcome!  Today’s card uses the One For All stamp set to create this bright and cheery thank you card.

I haven’t used our Poppy Parade cardstock very much so The Paper Players Colour Challenge was just what I needed to bring it out!  They asked us to pair it up with So Saffron and Smoky Slate as well and you can see both colours on this card.

The Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle ribbon adds just the right subtle touch.  TIP:  To avoid showing glue on this sheer ribbon, use a Stamping Sponge to add Liquid Multipurpose Glue.  Presto – no glue showing with this easy technique!

Check out the products I used below.  The One For Alll stamp set has some great “all-season” sentiments and I’ll be using it often!

Have a fabulous day and Happy Stamping to you!


It’s always a good time to say thanks and this card fits the bill very nicely!

I used a combination of the Falling for Leaves and Warm Hearted stamp sets for this.  The Warm Hearted set has several different greetings to cover all of the seasons and greetings that you need.

That lovely leaf was stamped first with Crushed Curry and then I used a small piece of our Stamping Sponges to add touches of Garden Green for effect.  The simple “thanks” was stamped over top with Tranquil Tide ink and the whole piece was backed with the very cool Chicken Wire Elements.

I used the layout from CAS(E) this sketch and played along with The Paper Players theme challenge of giving thanks.

Here’s the sketch in case you’d like to give it a try.

In case you were wondering….. here’s the short list of products that I used.

Have a happy, thankful day and Happy Stamping!


When I first saw the Postcard Pals stamp set my thoughts immediately went to how cute would those little pals be sending Christmas wishes!  Well, today the platypus says Merry Christmas!

OMG, he’s just too cute don’t you think?  I took advantage of The Paper Players sketch to show him off along with the lovely Under the Mistletoe designer series paper(146921).  Then I had some fun colouring that cutie with our Stampin’ Blends.

I can hardly wait to send him off to someone special for a cute Christmas greeting!

Here’s the list of goodies that I used.

Happy Stamping!


Do you remember when the Lovely As A Tree stamp set made it’s first appearance in the Stampin’ Up! catalogue?  It’s been years, which just goes to show that this stamp set has “roots” (pun intended).

I decided to give it some love in order to play along with The Paper Players challenge this week.  We’re to use trees and leaves as the focus.

This piece from the Tea Room Specialty Designer Series paper supplied the background and I found that Cajun Craze works fine with the Calypso Coral in the piece.  I fussy-cut those tiny leaves attached to the sentiment strip and used a Mini Glue Dot to attach the tiny bow.

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

Hello.  With our Canadian Thanksgiving this weekend, I’ve been busy creating placecards for all of us around the table this year.

There’s nothing like a little thankful in your Thanksgiving dinner!

I took on the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge from The Paper Players this week and chose to use leaves, ribbon and die-cuts.

Instead of just one, two stamp sets were used as I had previously stamped and coloured the jug from the Country Home set and decided to use it on these pretty little placecards.  These cards measure 4″ x 5-1/2″ and are scored at 2-3/4″.

Here’s the rather long list of products used.

Thanks for visiting today and Happy Stamping to you!


And the bee says – “enjoy your day”!  What a cute way to send a birthday greeting or even a “just because” greeting!

This background design from the Tea Room Specialty designer series paper package fits perfectly with the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set, so I went with it!

The simple layout comes from the new sketch posted by The Paper Players.

Following the sketch made it easy to add that angled length of the new Braided Linen Trim from the Holiday Catalogue.

Here’s the full list of products used for you.
