Up Up and Away

This stamp set had to be one of my Most favorite ones!!! Lift me up.. and the FANTASTIC die cuts also.... You can do so much with them and the cards look FANTASTIC!!!

Here are some waterclolur techniques... so easy to do...  and cutting out BEAUTIFUL glimmer paper.. this is the glimmer paper form our last sale -a- bration... so stunning

Chalk technique... Stamping in Whisper White ink then colouring in with our lovely watercolour pencils gives you this great Chalkboard look... It's a popular technique to teach..

This is a great way to use up some of your left over DSP.. by making a cute little pocket to put a treat.. (like a Ferrero Rocher) into the little space... something nice to give to a friend or a random stranger to say thanks...

Swing Card

This card is so much easier to make than it looks...  and it is one of those that give you a WOW when someone opens it...

Best reaction EVER!!!

Happy Birthday Card

Who doesn't love a HAPPY BIRTHDAY with lots of glitter and star bursts???

Here's one that just makes you want to be happy!!!

Using the stunning glimmer paper and some die cuts you can make any BIRTHDAY card look FANTASTIC!!

Deluxe Card

 Don't you love the somewhat shabby chic look of this card...?

I love separating the Stampin Up card stock and creating BEAUTIFUL 3D flowers...

Paper doily's and scrunching the layers of the flower petals is a great way to create 3d-edness and texture...

Of course you need to decorated a DELUXE card like this on the inside as well.... so a bit of gathered ribbon and some more flower petal layers does the job PERFECTLY!!!

And some more decorating of the greeting and message space... Just adds the finishing touches...

Super Hero - Comic Cards

I know these are now "retired" but I will be hanging onto them for a while longer as they are SUPER COOL... How much fun is it to make your own comic style cards?? So bright and FUN!!! Great for all ages!!!
This was a FANTASTIC Stamp n Stack class I did a few months ago.. I am only now posting the pics of them.... so slack I know... but better late than never right???

Inspiration was taken from a number of Pinterest posts... Loving it!!!

I had a beautiful friend of mine bring her TREASURED memories of her two ANGEL BABIES .. their tiny tiny foot prints and hand prints.. they were on two little bits of pink and blue paper... not really very substantial... but treasured none the less.... She had them up on her fridge over the years and had received some judgmental comments about them... asking why she would want to display them... She mentioned to me one day at church that she took them down because she didn't want to offend anyone.... It hurt my heart to think that someones words would cause her such pain and cause her to feel she needed to "Hide" them. It was then that I knew we needed to make them look as BEAUTIFUL and treasured as they really are... SO I did this with them for her...
With the basic set out of Angel Baby Footprint Cards and Name Cards I was able to make these wonderful memories into a piece of art that no one will ever have anything but WONDERFUL things to say!!!
It is such an honor to be able to share what we can with others to bless their lives...

And Stampin' Up allows us to do it with ease and pizzazz!!!

Craftroom organisation - Woodworking by Hubbie

 Check out my punch rack.. WAHOOOIEEEE!!. My hubbie made this for me a month ago... and I am LOVING it but as you can see I already need another level... or perhaps another whole shelving system.. seeings as I NEVER get rid of my punches.. :P #Ilovestampinuppunches

And this is a FANTASTIC bench he made for one of my fantastic fellow SU demos and dear friend.. Jen.. She wanted a stand up work station where she could display stuff and also do BIG SHOT stuff..  then she wanted to have some cupboards of coasters to slide under the table so all her stamps, punches and other accessories could be stored in them,... HOW AWESOME is this??? I think I may have to put an order in!!!
I loved it so much while it was in my studio awaiting to be delivered I just had to use it!!! :P

Star Box

The Beautiful Rosa taught us how to make this FABULOUS box at one of our training meetings in 2016.. It is so cute... And AWESOME to learn how to do..  using your star framlets (133723)....... you two can make one of these..

Simply cut out two big stars as your base and top of the box.. then cut out strips of matching DSP of the height you would like your box plus 1.5cm for adhering onto base or lid..
Score at 1.5cm long ways... Measure the length of one of the points and score that measurement 10 times on the DSP length .... (you may need to join 2 pieces of DSP to get length needed to go all the way around the box) Then score 1cm at the end to glue inside box ... cut out a triangle in each score line on the 1.5cm strip... the overlapped angle cut edges are glued to base to form the lid and the box base... You do have to be sure that one is slightly bigger than the other......

Have fun making this BEAUTIFUL box... XXOO

These cards are made with retired stamps but I just wanted to point out the cogs.. If you would like to make some of these it is simple... just punch out a circle and cut out some little triangles out of each edge all the way around... simple.. Cogs.. :)


Shabby Chic Stamp n Stack

I love the Timeless Textures (140514) Stamp Set... It is so BEAUTIFUL.. and when I saw these lovely cards on Pintrest I just had to recreate them...  of course adding my own twist...

This is a Stamp set I believe I will NEVER get rid of.... It creates such wonderful backgrounds!! It is LITERATELY TIMELESS!!!  :)

Community Card Class

Just a few pics of some of the cards we made at the Kingston East Neighborhood Group Card class... in  2016

We have so much fun at our classes.. It is something I really look forward to.. getting together with lovely people and sharing some creativity every week is definitely food for the soul!!!

This simple Valentines card is so easy to create... and it was a hit.. sometimes you need a SIMPLE card and that is enough!!!

Punch Art is Always a hit in Thursday Card Class,,,,
how cute is this sophisticated to-phat, monical and Mostache card for a man in your life... It's super easy and cute..

I love it when my ladies play with what I give them to do... the Rose Garden card in the middle is the "sample card".. and this is what a couple of ladies did... Colouring a diffent way (yellow) and using HEAPS of glitter...

 And if you smudge it you can use a few butterflies to cover the mistake.. :P

Bloom Heart Gate Fold Card

This BEAUTIFUL Bloomin' Heart Gate Fold Card is too GORGEOUS not to share... you can put a matte on the inside and stamp it to make your card truly a masterpiece!!!  And of course stamp on the envelope to match.

Open the Gate and Let the LOVE in!!!

Valentines - Stamp n Stack

Valentines Day is coming up on us FAST.. How bout trying some of these stamp n Stack Ideas... I love trying to make a set of cards with things I substitute from my "collection" of stamps.. and creating your own background papers is PERFECT!!!!

Love is in the AIR...
