GSF Blog Hop – Truly Tailored Card for Dad

Hi Friends! I hope you’re having an amazing week so far! I’ve been busy this week; both at work and at play, but I am happy to bring you a card featuring the new Truly Tailored Stamp Set from the Occasions Catalogue that went live on January 3rd!

Seriously, have you seen the catalogue yet? It has so many amazing new items, I can hardly handle it! If you’re joining me from the Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop, thank you for stopping by! I know you’ve already seen some amazing projects, so thanks for sticking around!

If you’re here just because you enjoy my blog (thanks a million!), be sure to check out the other amazing projects by checking out the list below!

From the moment I opened the Occasions Catalogue, the True Gentlemen Suite instantly caught my eye. I’m not sure if was the colours (my fave colours are blue/turquoise), or if it’s because masculine cards are what I struggle with most, but this set really has it all for me. Plus, I thought that this suite would make the masculine cards come a bit easier for me.

And let me tell you, this suite has helped so much!

Lookin' Sharp Dad Birthday Card - GSP Blog - JAN2018

I decided to go with something a bit more simple this time, but this suite really allows you to get creative with the sentiments and embellishments. The colour, sentiments; everything about this set just speaks to me and has so much to offer.

I think aside from the Truly Tailored Stamp Set itself, the True Gentlemen Designer Series Paper may be one of my most favourite Designer Series Paper that Stampin’ Up! has ever had. I say this because of it’s level of details, it’s classiness, and I think it can appeal to both kids and adults alike. Just think of the gift packaging you can create with it too!

If you like this suite as much as I do, but are not too sure what to get, I’ve put together this little bundle for you to give you a hand. It’s an easy way to earn a FREE Sale-A-Bration item!

GSF Blog Hop – Sketch Challenge

Hi Stampers! Welcome to my very first Blog Hop with the Global Stamping Friends!

gsf-blog-hop
I am so excited to participate in my first blog hop – so let’s hope I actually do this right 🙂 I am actually pretty honoured to participate in the hop alongside so many talented artists! I can’t wait to see what they come up.

Now, let’s get to it. This month’s hop is a sketch challenge based on the following sketch. We have to option to follow it to a ‘T’ or really have some fun and play around with it. I chose a bit of both!

gsf-march-hop

There are really so many places you can take a sketch like this, but for this challenge, I chose to keep it simple. Sometimes I think simple cards are the best cards; think of  understated beauty. And that’s exactly what I think this is.

gsp-blog-hop-pic1

For this card I used a scrap piece of paper from last year’s Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper Stack. I alway keep my scraps. Always. That way when I need to make a quick card, I have some paper readily available. Beside, why waste good paper? 🙂

I also used the Avant Garden stamp set that is part of the current Sale-A-Bration promotion. I absolutely love this set. It’s so versatile and can really be used with any sentiment you may have on hand. The best part is, is that you can get this set for FREE! Click HERE to learn more.

gsp-blog-hop-pic4

The colours used for this card include Watermelon Wonder, a hint of Cherry Cobbler using the Stampin’ Write Marker, Cucumber Crush, and Basic Black for the sentiment.  Of course, I also added some rhinestones as well, for a nice added touch!

Pretty and simple.

And thank you for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed my card. Now it’s time to hop on over to the next person…Kimberley has something amazing waiting for you as well!

Global Design Project GDP #074: Oh So Succulent

succulent-blog-1

I finally received my Oh So Succulent Bundle in the mail yesterday, I literally couldn’t open  the package fast enough! The amount of projects and cards that I’ve seen, combined with one of my upcoming classes (Succulent Garden Party), I really couldn’t get this set in my hand fast enough. I have been DYING to play with it…ok, well not dying, but as a fellow crafter you know how antsy we get when we’re waiting for a package to arrive!

I didn’t have anything else planned, so I basically dove right in to create this card for the Global Design Project GDP #074. This is the first time I’ve entered a design into any challenge, so I am excited to do so, and to also see what other designs other stampers have come up with. The only stipulation is that we need to create a design based on their sketch, which is what you see below. Though it is important to note that the sketch is just a guideline and we can make the project our own, which is where the fun and creativity come in.

gdp074

For this card in particular, I decided to stick with some bright and cheery colours such as Sweet Sugarplum, Melon Mambo, and Bermuda Bay; and  of course I used the Oh So Succulent stamp set and framelits dies. The sentiment is from the new Avant Garden stamp set that is part of the current Sale-A-Bration promotion. You can get this set for FREE! Click HERE to learn more!

succulent-blog-5

For this card I also used our new Watercolour Pencils. Let me tell you – these are a game changer when it comes to stamping! They can be used alone or you can use them with the Aqua Painter like I did to create a really beautiful watercolour effect. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these pencils and will be using them for the larger stamps that I’ve typically left aside because I didn’t know how I should colour them in.

succulent-blog-2

I am very happy with the results of this card. In fact, I made two of them so I can send them to my twin baby cousins for their 1st birthday!

Jump on over to the Global Design Project gallery and check out all the different interpretations of the sketch…and why not take the challenge and enter your own card!

Happy Stamping!

Recent Projects

Now that I’ve posted my first blog post, I thought I’d share a few recent projects I’ve completed before going head on into video tutorials, etc.

Making cards has become a passion of mine so I’m so thankful I get to share them with my audience. Let me know what you think by commenting below!

Birthday Florals
One of my favourite stamp sets from Sale-A-Bration is the What I Love photopolymer stamps. The florals are just so versatile that they can really be used for any card. For this particular card, I used the Island Indigo ink pad with matching paper, and the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Butterfly Basics Clear-Mount Stamp Set (my personal favourite birthday sentiment!). I then added some rhinestones and a touch of Wink of Stella to the flowers, and here we are!

The fold is also different from your standard card so I think it really make this one stand out.Birthday FINAL - Blog FEB02Birthday 2 FINAL - Blog FEB02


So Loved
This is a great card for beginners. I used Whisper White cardstock, along with a patterned paper from our Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper Stack that can be found on Page 17 in our 2016 Occasions catalogue. The floral stamp is from the For the New Two rubber stamp set in our 2015 – 2016 Annual catalogue and the sentiment stamp is from the Watercolour Wishes photopolymer stamp set. The ink colours used are Basic Black and Blushing Bride.

So Loved FINAL - Blog FEB02


Butterfly Love
This card is also great for beginners, and it involves one of my favourite tools – the Big Shot! The cardstock used is Island Indigo and Whisper White (which is embossed using the Lovely Lace embossing folder). I also used matching ribbon and the Butterflies Thinlits.
