Cardmaking at the cafe

Hi! Sorry I have been so delinquent in posting! You know it's because I've been busy sharing stamping. It is saleabration after all!
Just wanted to share some quick pictures of the cards we made this morning at Cardmaking at the cafe. 



We were able to make a bunch and donate them for the church to use. I love using stamping as a way to give back and volunteer. 
I will post more when I get some time to sit down. There's so much to share!

Fun Creating for a Friend

My friend and Team S.T.I.C girl Zahra was gearing up to run a big stampin event.  I know what those big events are like...your mind races with ideas on how to make everything run smoothly so that it is fun for everyone...even though everyone might be at different life stages or stamping stages.  As your mind continues to race, you run around cutting paper, photocopying class schedules, making display boards with new samples, ordering food etc etc.
I know Zahra also has a full time job and three young children.  I figured she might need a little encouragement as her big event drew closer.

I took some time to make this little treat for her.  I know she loves pink and bling so I made sure to incorporate both.

I used the baker box thinlit die and cut out a little window.  The little starburst circle shape is included with the baker box thinlits so it fit perfectly on the front of the box. I glued a window sheet over the opening so she could see the valentine candy inside.  If nothing else, I figured the sugar rush would help her get through her to-do list.


It was fun to sit down and make a treat for my friend just because I wanted to.  Why not take our your supplies and make something for a friend?

Birthday cards

Just wanted to share some birthday cards made using the awesome It's My Party Suite in the occasions catalogue.
What's fun about this suite is that there are so many amazing co-ordinating products.
Here's one swap card I received from Amy Combs.  She uses the It's my Party DSP, the party wishes stamp set, the balloon from the Party Punch pack, the co-ordinating bakers twine, and enamel dots.

Here's a card I made using the same products but a totally different outcome.  
Super fun and versatile right? 


We are talking a lot about birthdays in our house because my daughter is getting ready to celebrate a birthday in February.  She designed and sent out her birthday invitations already.  Here is the dramatic card that she made. 


She brayered the whisper white background with a variety of colours (daffodil delight, wisteria wonder and melon mambo maybe?).  Then she stamped and heat embossed the words with black embossing powder.  She did the same with the cupcakes and puched them out.  

Since my daughter is all excited about her birthday coming up, it causes my young son to start thinking about what he's going to do for his party in March. 
I guess there will be a lot of birthday talk in our house for a while! 

I can't believe the party punch pack is on the weekly deals list this week.  It's a bit unusual to put newly released product on the weekly deals but it's on there!  So I'd say take advantage and grab it now! 

Of course it's about the same price savings if you go for the bundle the stamp set with the punches. 

Check it out on my online store if you're like me and have birthday celebrations ahead of you! 
Don't forget you get a free sale-a-bration item with every $60 order.

Wink of Stella Video and Weekly Deals

Here's this week's watch it Wednesday video (on a Thursday...sorry...it's that kind of week).  If you're on my newsletter list you'll know that I've announced how much I love the Wink of Stella glitter brush.  It is so beautiful!
Here is a swap card I made.




Here's a close up where you can see the subtle beauty I added to the peas with the wink of stella brush.
You can't see as clearly but the faceted vintage button also adds to the bling of the card. (These buttons are on weekly deals! )
Enjoy the video and feel free to snatch up anything from the weekly deals by shopping on my online store.  Don't forget every $60 order gets you a free sale-a-bration freebie!
