Rock n' Roll, Baby!

I've been having a lot of fun using the Brights collection of colours lately.  Here is a card I made using the "Rock n' Roll" technique.


The card features Mixed Bunch and the Blossom Punch.  The ribbon is a piece of our seam binding ribbon that I pulled to make gather.  I love how this card turned out, don't you?

To learn how to rock n' roll or to take advantage of the fabulous June and July hostess BONUS, send me an email!

Fabulous Florets

I am really enjoying this card we made at Stamp-a-Rama a couple weekends ago.  It's so simple and yet the colours just pop!

It features a technique I had read about but hadn't tried until Stamp-a-Rama.  It's the spreading ink technique and I can't believe how easy it is to create this look!

You will be amazed by how many amazing accents you can create for your cards, scrapbooks and 3D gifts using this technique.

This card features the Fabulous Florets set.

To learn more about the spreading ink technique, contact me to book your workshop!  I'm available by email, phone, 905-320-4477 or you can visit my website.

Happy Stamping!

It's Tea-Riffic!

I am absolutely in love with the Morning Cup set!  I don't have it yet; but, after using it this past weekend, it's definitely on my "must have" list.  This is a twist on the original design of the card.  I changed up the colours; but I love the spirelli technique used around the tea cup.  

To learn how to duplicate this card, book your workshop now!  June is filling up quickly because Hostesses can earn an additional $60 in FREE product.  Don't miss your chance to take advantage of this awesome incentive.  Email or call me to book your workshop today.

Comparing Stamp Pads

I've had a few questions about the new stamp pads that Stampin' Up! has introduced in the 2012-13 catalog.  Let me tell you, I LOVE them.  They are so much nicer to use and I find I get a much better coverage.

Here's a great video from Shannon West, comparing the two styles of Stampin' Up! ink pads.

Father's Day "Reverse Negative"

Father's Day is coming and the one comment I hear most often from my customers is that they never know how to make a masculine card.

Check out this great Father's Day card I created at Stamp-a-Rama this past weekend, using one of my favourite sets, Lovely as a Tree and Teeny Tiny Wishes.

Peekaboo Card

This past weekend I spent Saturday stamping and learning new techniques to share with all of you!  One of the techniques we did was the "peekaboo card" and I've got to tell you, this one is super easy to duplicate!


We started with a base in Daffodil Delight card stock.  The next layer is a piece of Summer Smooches DSP.  On top of that is a piece of Whisper White card stock that has been embossed using the Big Shot and the Elegant Lines Textured Embossing Folder.  On that piece, we used the new Blossom Punch to punch out, slightly off the page, a flower.  The layer is then mounted on top of the DSP to give that peekaboo effect.  We then embellished the card using punched out flowers from the Boho Blossom Punch in Rich Razzleberry and Daffodil Delight.  "Happy Birthday" was stamped in Island Indigo on Shimmery White card stock using the Best Dad Ever set.  Top it all off with some bling, using the Basic Rhinestones and voila, you have a gorgeous card that was quick and easy to make!

To see how this card is made in person, book your workshop today.  Don't forget, in June, Hostesses can earn an additional $60 in FREE product, that's $150 in FREE product altogether!

To order the supplies listed above to create this card, please email, call or shop online!
