GSF Blog Hop - Anniversary Edition


Welcome to my first ever contribution to the Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop! I'm super excited to participate this month and share with you my creation.

This month's theme is Anniversary cards!  We all have someone in our lives that celebrates an anniversary of some kind.  Maybe it's a wedding anniversary, or a work anniversary.  It could be an anniversary of a first date or another momentous occasion.  Which means, we all need anniversary cards to send.  

I had a lot of fun creating for this hop and I hope you'll find inkspiration here and with my sister GSF hoppers.  For my submission, I combined some existing products with some new products from the upcoming Holiday Catalogue; and I really think the result is stunning.  In fact, the photo really doesn't do it justice.


If you'd like information about this project and how to duplicate it or some of the techniques used, simply send me an email and I'd be happy to walk you through it.  In the meanwhile, don't forget to visit the rest my GSF friends along the hop for more anniversary card ideas!

More Inkspiration for Carols of Christmas

Happy Saturday Stampers!  I hope your weekend is off to a great start.  Today marks the first Saturday I haven't had to be at my full-time job in more than a month, so I'm trying desperately to catch up on some much needed crafting time.

As promised, here is yet another sample featuring the Carols of Christmas stamp set that you can get NOW before the holiday catalogue launches September 1st.

This sample combines so many elements it's hard to pick out my favourite feature; but the deer is super cute!






































If you'd like to learn how to duplicate this card and what supplies you'd need to do so, just comment below or send me an email.  I'd be happy to walk you through it.

Carols of Christmas Inkspiration


Good morning Stampers.  I hope your Thursday is off to a fantastic start.  I'm fortunate to have a day off from my full-time job today, which I plan to maximize running some much needed errands and crafting!

I have the first of a few Christmas clinics next week that I need to start planning and prepping for.  There's still space too!  If you're local and would like to get a jump on your Christmas cards, check out the event on my Facebook page, or in my events section.

Today, I want to share with you an idea for the Carols of Christmas stamp set that you can get on EARLY release, ahead of the Holiday Catalogue launch September 1st.


This first project is simply stunning!  It is a shaker card, and while it's hard to tell from the photo, the trees actually have glitter and sequins in behind them that you can shake and move around to look like snow falling.  I absolutely LOVE it.  The void spaces are created using the matching Card Front Builder thinlits, also available on EARLY release.  The colours are non-traditional Christmas colours, which I think make a bold statement.  Dapper Denim and Pool Party combine perfectly.  DSP from the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper pack creates a perfect background accent.

If you'd like more information on how to create this card, or on the shaker card technique featured, please send me a note and we can discuss further.

Happy stampin'!
