Vintage Leaves Birthday Card: #tgifc13

Good morning friends! I'm currently in Salt Lake City, livin' it up Stampin' Up! style at our annual convention! But it is Friday after all, and I couldn't possibly leave you without a TGIF Challenges card! The challenge this week is Clean & Simple. Um, do I do that?
Well it turns out that I can do clean and simple if I try. Here's my card this week.
And although I'm typically not a 'clean and simple' kind of girl, I do really like how this turned out. It must be those vintage leaves. This stamp set is truly beautiful. 
Vintage Leaves photopolymer stamp set $32
To create those beautiful leaves you'll first need to stamp them in VersaMark Ink on Watercolour Paper, sprinkle with White Embossing Powder, and heat set with the Heat Tool. Then it's time to go to town with your Aqua Painter and some Stampin' Up! Classic Inks. For my leaves I used Real Red, Calypso Coral, and Daffodil Delight. 
I also added some fun metallic embellishments to compliment the gold embossing on the sentiment. I was after some gold candy dots to match my gold button, so I simply coloured some with a gold sharpie marker. Easy peasy.

You can find all the supplies I used to create this card and links to my Canadian Online Stampin' Up! Shop at the end of this post, and don't forget that you can play along with us over at TGIF Challenges too!

Happy Stampin'

Tag A Bag Accessory Kit Cards: Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Welcome to the weekly Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! Thanks so much for coming to visit me! This week my 15 teamies and I are doing a gift packaging theme using several of the new products from the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. I decided to turn my gift packaging products into a fun collection of cards. Check it out.
The new Tag A Bag Accessory Kit makes the perfect cards! The only little extras I added were some punched flowers, stamps, and notecards! I'll be scheduling a class date for these cuties in September, so stay tuned! 
So of course I had to steer myself back to the gift packaging theme, so I created this adorable bag that the notecards fit in perfectly. Wouldn't these make a stunning gift?

You will find the product links to my Canadian Online Stampin' Up! Shop where you can purchase all the supplies to make your own set of notecards at the bottom of this post. But before you jet away, make sure to stop by Barbara's blog and see what she's created.

Silhouettes & Script Card: #tgifc12

Happy Friday my friends! Over at TGIF we have a fun and simple new challenge for you. Simply create a project with something brand new in the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue! 
Well of course my mind was whirling with all the possibilities, but I decided to reach for a stamp set that's totally captured my heart, Silhouettes & Script. This is a hostess set, so before you fall totally in love, be sure that you're prepared to join one of my clubs, place a $200 order, or host a party to get it! ;)
And this is the bright and sunshine-y card I created! 
I saw a similar card online and went to work using my Stampin' Up! supplies to bring it to life again. 
I know all those little rays of sunshine require some serious fussy cutting, but it's totally worth it, right?! I think so.
Ok, so I know what you're thinking. HOW do I get my hands on that dang hostess stamp set?! Well, let me help. If you are local to me (Calgary, AB), I will have new Stamp Clubs forming in a few months, so email me and get your name on the list NOW so you don't miss out. I also have a Project Life Club starting SOON, so again please email me to get your name on that list. Click the icon below to email me now. 
 
And if you're not local to me, let's chat about how we can set up an online party for you and your friends! Or, just place that $200 order and get a few things off your wish list. 

Don't forget to play along with us at TGIF Challenges this week!

Words of Truth Cards: Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Hello friends! Welcome to the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! As always, I'm excited to share my projects with you! This week we are all using the Words of Truth stamp set, check it out:
Words of Truth - Clear Mount $21
Words of Truth - Wood Mount $28
This set has some super fun sayings that will be fun for memory keeping, as well as cards. I made three cards to share with you that all use the same basic layout, but different stamps, punches, and ink to give each one a fresh new look. These will be some great cards to tuck into my hubby's suitcase when he heads on an upcoming trip!


I encourage you to try this simple technique of 're-creating' or CASE-ing (Copy And Share Everything) your own cards. It's fun to see what you can do to alter your very own card design. 

I've listed all the supplies that I used for all of these cards at the end of this post. You can click on any of the images and you'll be redirected to my Canadian Online Stampin' Up! Shop! 

Please go visit Barbara and she what she's created with this fun stamp set!

Thanks so much for visiting!

You're Sublime Watercolour Card: #tgifc11

Happy Friday friends! Friday = TGIF Challenges! Check out the sketch we are working with this week:

Cute and easy - I'm in. Here's the card I made:
Can we just pause and adore that precious little submarine?! Seriously. That thing is CA-UTE! All the images in this stamp set are adorbs.
You're Sublime stamp set
Clear $23.00
Wood $33
Eep, and the trailer! So cute! 

Ok, back to the card. I watercoloured the submarine using my Stampin' Up! Classic Ink Pads and an Aqua Painter. Then once my images were dry, I went back in and added dimension to some of the pieces with Crystal Effects.
And don't forget to pop up all those layers with some Dimensionals!
I hope you'll play along with the design team over at TGIF! Scroll to the bottom of this post for all the supplies and links to my Canadian Online Stampin' Up! Shop!
