Make a Wish!

I have a sister who will be having a birthday this coming weekend and I thought I would make her a card using her favourite colours.  I went all out and used more than one stamp set!
I am sure that she will be pleased with it. When we were little we loved to blow on these dandelion "fluff" not sure what else to call it, but it was fun!

I used Wink of Stella on the dandelion fluff. It is hard to get that to show in a photo but it sure looks good in real time :)



 here is a list of the products that I had used to create this card

Graduation time

Hello everyone, I am back with a couple of graduation cards. I have two great nieces who are graduating this year after completing grade twelve. So excited for them as they both have plans to continue their education!
card 2

I had used  Stampin' Up June 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit! what a fun kit to play & create with. I just love how these two cute cards turned out! The hat and scroll were not included in the kit, I made them by hand and love how they turned out.


Have a great weekend everyone! and to all my Canadian friends, have a GREAT Canada Day weekend!
Take Care and stay safe

My mother's Birthday card

My precious mother has just turned 85! and I wanted to make her a special card. Her birthday was on the 29th so she has it now.
She fell in love with the card! she tells me that I could open my own little shop and sell my cards HA!
She is so sweet love her to bits!



I did make this card a bit bigger than I usually make them. This double Z card measured  5 1/2 x 5 1/2. A nice size for this style of card. I hand-cut the flowers and coloured them in using a blender pen and Stampin up ink. Such a fun card to make.

Just keeping my post short and sweet.
Just like my mom :)

Have a great weekend everyone!

Autumn Days Stampin UP retired stampset

Fall is in the air
Here is my creation using the retired Stampin' Up! stamp set  Autumn Days





Here is a list of the supplies and Cardstock measurements that I had used


Early Espresso cardstock for the Card base 8 1/2 x 5 1/2  scored at 4 1/4
2 strips of  DSP  1/2 x 5 1/2
Crumb Cake  cardstock 3 1/4  x 5 1/2
Tranquil Tide  cardstock 4 1/4 x 3
Very Vanilla  cardstock 4 x 2 3/4
Burlap ribbon was cut at  5 1/2



Process
I do not own the Stampin' Up! markers YET but I was able to use my blender pen and ink pads to colour the pheasant stamp using the colours Tranquil Tide, Cajun Craze and Soft Suede. Once I was happy with it I gently spritzed it with a bit of water before stamping onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock. Once dried I stamped the wheat and grass with the So Saffron ink. The sentiment was stamped using the Memento ink. The leaves were leftover from a previous project. Yea for leftovers!

I then started to put layers together starting with attaching the dsp paper to the back of the Crumb Cake cardstock then attaching it to the Early Espresso card base. Next, the burlap ribbon was attached using Fast Fuse adhesive. I then glued the very vanilla to the tranquil tide cardstock. To the back of the Tranquil Tide cardstock, I used  Stampin' dimensionals skipping the middle to pop it over the burlap ribbon. I also popped one of the leaves to add a bit more dimension.

Well, that was fun!
Have a great week everyone!

Basket of Wishes

Another beautiful stamp set from Stampin' Up! called Basket of Wishes. Because it has the letter "W" as part of the title I thought I would enter once again into the Joy of sets challenge blog.

Here in Canada our Thanksgiving will be coming up on Monday, Oct 9th. Every year my sister hosts our Thanksgiving meal, and every year I make her a thank you card which she proudly displays on her beautiful antique hutch, how great is that!

here is this year's card


Lately, I am getting into using either my blender pen or my aqua painters! Here I used my blender pen along with an assortment of inkpads. It has been a few days since I made this card and I have misplaced the paper which I wrote down all my colours to share with you. I can tell you that I used Basic Black cardstock for the card base and the mat which the basket is stamped on is a piece of shimmery white cardstock love this paper! it works so well for using my aqua painters on. I used the square from the stitched shaped framelits to cut out the image. I then embossed a piece of old olive cardstock using the Hexagon textured impressions folder. As you can see I used the burlap ribbon and our new faceted gems in gold. The sentiment comes from one of our newer sets called Painted Harvest love this new stamp set!

Hope you enjoyed your time here.

HAPPY  THANKSGIVING! to all my Canadian friends out there. Stay safe everyone!
