Strong and Beautiful Mother’s Day Card

Mother’s Day is approaching ( in just under a month’s time). So today I pulled out a favourite retiring stamp set (Strong and Beautiful) and paired it with a soon to be released new floral set (Colour and Contour). The layout of this card was inspired by the Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #362.

Some of the finer details that you may not be able to see in this photo are the Dainty Diamonds embossing on the Basic Black cardstock , the coating of Wink of Stella and the fact that the flower was stamped on Shimmery White cardstock. If you want all the details check out the video below.

West Coast Creators Blog Hop – April 2021

It’s the 14th of the month – time for another West Coast Creators Blog Hop!  This month we are featuring retiring items!!  The product we are using will only be available until May 3rd. Hop around see all the amazing cards created by our team members!  Leave a little love (do a bit of shopping if you see something you love) and then come back to see us again on the 14th next month!

Live in Canada, don’t have a demonstrator? Contact me to get a catalogue or find out why right now is the best time to join our team.

My card is inspired by Tammy Wilson ( Stampin’ Up! Artisan) and is a mash up of 3 retiring sets.


I created this card for my friend’s daughter who graduates from high school this year. I used a fun watercolour technique to create the colour strip and I embossed the images and sentiment with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. To see how I created the rainbow background check out my facebook live: https://fb.watch/4S98yKT4ZU/.Can you also spy the new product in this card?

Sweet Silhouette

These beautiful (soon to be retiring) silhouette stamps and dies create quick and stunning cards.

The first card I created for the Spot Sketch Challenge #157. If you would like to see how I created the coloured background on the left check out my video below. I think this card could make a fabulous grad card or celebration of most life changes.

I then used some other pieces from this great bundle and some spare watercolour pieces ( because I never paint just one paper at a time!) to create a variation of this card.

The Sweet Silhouette dies and Silhouette Scenes stamp set will no longer be available after May 3rd. So if you love these grab them now! You can use the host code: BWWEEQGM, any order over $60 using this code will receive a little something special from me as a thank you.

Dino Days

I don’t have small kids anymore and yet I STILL love creating with dinosaurs. Luckily I have friends and family with littles who appreciate these cards. The dino card I created today was inspired by a sketch challenge #mojosketch557

I also used a ton of soon to retiring product. Like the real dinosaurs, the Dino Days stamp set, the Denim ribbon and the DSP will all be extinct soon. Check out my full product list below and grab your items before they are gone! Or head straight to my shop to choose from the full retiring list.

Wildly Happy Baby Card

I LOVE having a reason to create and when I created this card I actually had 3 reasons to make it!

Most importantly – my cousin and his wife just welcomed their first child into the world – Welcome Harriet Batchelor!

Secondly I wanted to participate in two different challenges. The Global Design Project (#GDP286) and the Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration Challenge (#HSSIC361).

My third reason to create this card was to highlight some of our soon to be retiring products from Stampin Up! I don’t want to miss out on a minute of playing with some of my favourite supplies. I also don’t want you to miss out on grabbing these while you still can! See below for a full list of supplies used ( and click the links to purchase – some even have sale pricing right now!)

For all the details on how I created this card check out my video below or pop over to my Facebook page. Will you are there, make sure to follow or subscribe to my page so you get notified every Tuesday when I post a new project.
