Floral Statements

This is my new favorite stamp set - Floral Statements. As soon as I saw it in the 2018 Stampin' Up! catalog I knew I had to have it.  In all 3 samples I embossed the floral arrangement. The purple one on the right I masked the flowers to stamp the background image.  All 3 were colored with Stampin' Up! Blendabilities (retired but hopefully back soon).

Technique Club Project

It has be a long time since I posted. Work has been extremely busy and exhausting and I have just not had time to stamp.
I had to get organized for a club that I am holding this Friday and here is one of the 2 projects that my ladies will make.
It uses the Fox Builder punch and coordinating stamp set Foxy Friends

Pop & Twist with Beautiful You

I have seen so many videos on how to make the Pop & Twist card and finally decided to try it out for myself. Interactive cards are always fun to open up - a little surprise inside. Now that I have been able to make this I am going to teach my Stamper's Tech Club this month how to make it. I think they will love it!

This Month At My Stamper's Tech Club

Wow Christmas is just over 5 weeks away but with the background in my photo (my backyard) you would think it was spring. It's fall here in Ottawa and the weather is amazing! The grass is greener than it was all summer!
That said how about a little Christmas inspiration? Next week is my Stamper's Tech club and this month one of the projects will be this fun fold card. It uses the new circle framelits, holly embossing folder, pompom trim and Candy Cane Lane DSP. Of course it would be complete without a little touch of glitter & glimmer - but that is on the inside and is a surprise.  I am excited to show my "Techies" how to make this card.  
Want to learn more about my Stamper's Tech club? Here are the highlights.

  • It is a 6 month club (there are 4 months left and you can still join)
  • It is affordable & flexible - each club you decide your fee option - either pay a flat fee $15 or place a min. $40 net order. Placing orders does not come without a reward. All orders you place during the club life cycle are tallied up on a monthly basis. When you reach $300 in net purchases you receive $30 in free product from me!  How great is that? 
  • You will make 2 amazing projects each month and I will provide you with typed up instructions so that you can recreate the projects anytime.
  • More info can be found here. I have 2 spots open on my Saturday afternoon sessions.

Masked Leaf Technique

I can't believe that Fall is here!  Last night I kicked off my Stamper's Tech club and this is one of the projects that the ladies made.  
I love the new copper embossing powder, copper twine and the copper foil paper.  They both add a touch of shine to the card.   

Morning Mist

Inspired by Michelle Zindorff
Next weekend marks the start of my annual Stamper's Technique club. Each month I teach my stampers different stamping techniques and this month I will be teaching what I am calling "Morning Mist".
I can't wait for my club members to make this card.

Detailed Santa Thinlits Shaker Card

The Detailed Santa thinlits are a real gem. Starting Sept. 1st you can order your own through my online store.
Yesterday I was looking through the basement and stumbled across some beads that my daughter used to play with and I immediately knew what I wanted to do with them. So I made this shaker card. I love how it turned out! What do you think?

Fox Builder Punch

It just amazes me how creative some people can be. I saw this posted on Pinterest and thought I would share it here. I wish I could tell you who came up with all these but the link on Pinterest didn't take me to the creators website.  So I apologize for not giving credit. Who ever came up with all of these - genius!  All of these were made with the Fox Builder punch!  I can't wait to try them out myself.  Maybe I will use one of these in my Fox & Friends class on Aug. 20th.    I have a couple of spots open if you are interested in joining the class.

Pretty Kitty Birthday Card

Pretty Kitty Birthday Card
I can't stop playing with this stamp set - Pretty Kitty. I used Blendabilities to color the kitty and the butterflies.  The greeting is from the new hostess set  Time of Year. Love that there are some matching framelits (Bunch of Banners) to cut out the banner.
