Just spent the afternoon crafting. These are the cards we got shared with us from WestCoast Creators. They are designed by Rhonda Wade. I had to make changes to the original design by substituting embossing folders with ones I actually had but they still turned out. It’s really easy when someone else designs it for you. I’m really happy with them and can barely wait to give them out. Remember all good things must come to an end Sale-a-bration is over at the end of this month. If you’re wanting to get ahold of these stamp sets: Hey Chick and Avant Garden and the Carried Away DSP then you need to let me know, in a few weeks they will be no longer available.
I’m holding a birthday make and take party. It will be on Saturday March 18th from 2-4pm. We will make 3 of each of 3 different cards. This is my 2nd card of the 3. If you missed the first go to my blog and look back a bit it’s there. If you’re going to be around North Vancouver BC Canada email me at email@example.com for details. There will be cake and refreshments too! It promises to be a great afternoon. This card is made using the Cupcakes and Carousels suite and some SAB free Glimmer Paper. Just a word on the suite they put a little taste of a whole lot of Embellishments into one package instead of having to buy a whole lot of different Embellishments separate. I like that idea!
Ok time for new Sale-a-bration items!!! This uses both the Make a Medallion stamp set and the Glimmer Paper Assortment Pack in Bermuda Bay and Sweet Sugarplum. The inks are Bermuda Bay, Sweet Sugarplum and Rich Razzleberry and the card stock is Bermuda Bay, Sweet Sugarplum and Whisper White. I also used the Sweet and Sassy Heart Framelits.
I’m starting a Stamp Club soon and if you’re in the Vancouver-ish lower mainland area of BC Canada and want to be a part of this fun group no pressure to purchase let me know and we can add you. I already have one member who I’m very thankful for. Right now I’m offering a free card tin to my first two members. A little something to keep your cards in there is still one unspoken for.
This is for my other Sister who is in love with glitz! Can you tell I have a lot of birthdays in March. This uses the Birthday Blast bundle which consists of a stamp set and dies. The background is Sweet Sugarplum Glimmer paper which is one of the upcoming Sale-a-bration items and there are 3 colours included. I also used gold foil paper. The card stock is Sweet Sugarplum and Rich Razzleberry and the ink is Rich Razzleberry. I used the Multipurpose Liquid Glue for the first time to adhere everything and although I did have a few adhesive messes they are much improved over what I’m used to with other adhesives. I would give it a thumbs up I just need to practice more with it.
Sale-a-bration item: Avant Garden stamp set featured here. I used a brayer to cover Whisper White with Sweet Sugarplum ink then stamped the background with bleach using the flower stamp from the set. I then stamped the sentiment and dots using the same stamp set and on a separate Whisper White card stock. I stamped the main flower then fussy cut it and attached it with Stampin Dimensionals. For a glitzy finish I dabbed around some wink of Stella in gold. And mounted it on Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry card stock and finally a Whisper White Thick card base.
I went back to the Falling in Love suite and the So in Love stamp set for this on. Actually I was trying to get a Stampin Write Markers and the aqua Painters card which I think I can make a video of in less than 15 minutes. I tried doing a video with Mediterranean Moments but it was over 24 minutes and that’s just too big to post. These flowers are much quicker so tonight I’m working on a video I plan to post tomorrow. I’ll just be showing these flowers as my example.

I honestly thought at first glance at the new Occasions catalog I’m not really interested in the Mediterranean Moments stamp set, but I was wrong I actually love this set. I’m enjoying matching my watercolour images with DSP in this case the Moroccan DSP. I added a sentiment from Best Birds and some ribbon from SAB. It’s more fun and versatile than I originally thought.

I’m happy to say I’m going to be holding a card making class. These are the cards. You get to pick 3 and make 3 of each for a total of 9 cards!!! The cost is $25 BUT if you order $60 before tax and shipping you not only get a free Sale-a-bration item of your choice but you also get the cost of the class refunded. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. If you still have time after 9 cards you will be allowed to do all 4 for a total of 12 cards. Now tell me could you buy 9 or possibly 12 cards for $25. I highly doubt it. The dates are February 9, 10, 16 or 17 from 7pm-9pm at my place in North Vancouver BC. The seats are limited so reserve yours early.
Used Mediterranean Moments on this one and watercolour with Stampin Write Markers and aqua painters. I also used lots of Sale-a-bration items: Avant Garden for the sentiment, Carried Away DSP and Gold Metallic Ribbon. I’m thinking I might do a video on just the watercolour technique on this one.
More of the Falling in Love suite card. This one would be great as an anniversary card or wedding card. I also used a stamp from the Delicate Details stamp set from the free Sale-a-bration catalog. The colours are Very Vanilla, Blushing Bride and Sahara Sands. You could also use this as a special friendship card.
