Glamper Greetings Halloween Card: Fancy Friday Blog Hop

Hello my friends and welcome to the Fancy Friday blog hop! Once a month my super talented, current and past Artisan Team member friends get together to bring you a fantastic blog hop, and this month is no exception! Our theme this month is holiday, so you're going to see some products from the brand new Holiday Catalogue in action! I chose to share this fun Halloween card that I made with my SE Calgary Stampin' Up! Card Club ladies earlier this month.
Many of my club ladies are avid campers, so I knew they would adore this card. I'm not what you'd call an avid camper, but I love cute things, and glampers are CUTE! 
The Glamper Greetings stamp set is perfect for creating watercolour masterpieces. I stamped my scene using Basic Black Archival Ink on Shimmery White Cardstock - YES you can use this for watercolouring! I love how the water and ink pool so beautifully on the Shimmery White Cardstock, different than watercolour paper. I created this video to show you how to watercolour the sky:

If you haven't tried the Shimmery White Cardstock for watercolouring, make sure you order some from My Canadian Online Stampin' Up! Shop

As I mentioned this card is one that I made with my SE Calgary Stampin' Up! Card Club ladies, and I have some openings for the new group starting in October!
We meet the third Monday of the month in my stamping studio for cardmaking, techniques, a few snacks, and lots of laughs. I'd love for you to join the fun! More details HERE.

Now please go and visit my very talented friend Joyce Fowler to see what she's created.

Jar of Love Thank You Card

Hi friends! I hope you're having a wonderful Thursday! I'm getting ready for an incredible online event that you won't want to miss this Saturday. I'll have a live broadcast on my Nice People Stamp Facebook page, I'm participating in an international blog hop, and I have a smokin' hot promotion, all for World Cardmaking Day this coming Saturday. Seriously, don't miss all the fun coming your way! Sign up for my newsletter, follow me on Facebook, and while you're at it, hit me up on Pinterest, Instagram, and You Tube too! 
Now let's chat about today's card. I just can't seem to stop with these mason jars! They are so cute! The Jar of Love stamps and framelits I've used on this card are bundled together for 10% savings. I just LOVE when Stampin' Up! bundles coordinating products together and gives us some savings! Score! 

Creative Tips:

  • The secret 'extra layer'. By stamping the large Watercolor Wash background stamp onto my card base, I've created the illusion of an extra layer of cardstock, with none of the added bulk for mailing, or the cost of cardstock. Sneaky and smart. :)
  • Not all jars are clear! Do you miss the beautiful coloured glass jars of yesteryear? Yeah me too. But you can recreate those stunning coloured jars by stamping your jar image onto coloured cardstock, like the Pool Party I used here.
  • Easy peasy water. To create the look of water in your jar, simply use a Sponge Dauber to add some Pool Party Ink to the bottom half of your jar image. Easy peasy water! 
I know you've probably fallen in love with all the stunning jar products that I've used over the last couple of days on my blog, so here's a recap:
