Happy Watercolour

I love this stamp set "Happy Watercolour" from Stampin' Up! I saw a couple of cards on Pinterest so I incorporated them into this one. Coastal Cabana is  one of my favourite colours, and I have used both the ink and the card stock. Some sequins were added for interest too.  If you would like to order these items, please click onto my Shop now button.

Happy Valentine's Day Weston and Carey!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Aren't these cards adorable? I made these for my two grandsons, Weston and Carey. The stamps are from the retired SU set " I dig you". Being boys, they love their trucks, so I figured these would be appropriate, filled with lots of hearts! Lots of love for those boys!  This set can be used for birthdays, filling the truck and loader with presents!

Wherever you are, I hope you have a happy Valentine's Day!

For Meg

A friend of mine had a stamp set that she hadn't used yet. I asked her to give it to me, so I could give her some ideas. Here is one I came up with using the side-step card. Enjoy!

Inky Hugs!

Hearts a Flutter

Good morning!

Here I am with another Valentine card! This card uses the Stamp set Hearts a Flutter, which co-ordinates with the Hearts a Flutter dies.  The Sentiment is from a Retired stamp set...however you can use whatever sentiment you would like. I love layers, and this card features layers! If you look closely you can see Stampin' Up's finishing touches Edgelit.

If you are from Canada, and need any supplies, please contact me and we can get you set up to make the card!

Have a great day!

Love x 3

Hey Stampers

I am probably one of the biggest followers on Pinterest. On one of my many  searches, I ran across this card and fell in love with it. The card uses Stampin' Up's Expression Thinlets. As you can see I cut it 3 times, using different shades of pink. The "U" is from an old set of Lollipop Uppercase Dies from Sizzix, using the Silver Glimmer paper. The heart shape is cut from a retired Stampin' up punch.
I also used a Rhinestone to add some interest to the heart. The Whisper White is embossed with an Embossing Folder from Cuttlebug, which is layered on Real Red Cardstock.

This would be a great card for Valentines Day...or anyday, just to tell someone you love them!

Till next time

Oh Hello!

Hi Friends
I am back with another card I saw on Pinterest. You can view  the gals blog  here  I am doing a Stamp a Stack class and I need cards that are made quickly and I think this fits the bill.

I used Daffodil Delight as the card base. So Saffron is the next layer, embossed with the Modern Mosaic Embossing folder. I cut a banner from Polka Dot Parade DSP. Next up is label from Labels Collections cut from Daffodil Delight CS. I then inked up Oh, Hello with  Basic Gray Ink, and cut it out with my oval punch.  Using the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch, I cut a small shape and placed a Rhinestone in the center. Voila! As always, the sentiment can be changed to suit the occasion.
What do you think?
