Biggest Wish – Acetate Transfer Technique

This was created for the TGIF Challenge #318. The challenge was to use Stampin’ Blends. I decided to try out a technique I’ve wanted to try for awhile called Acetate Transfer Technique.

To create this background I scribbled on a piece of acetate (just a piece left over from one of my stamp sets) with a Night of Navy Stampin’ Blend and a Polished Pink Stampin’ Blend. Then I spritzed the coloured acetate generously with Rubbing Alcohol and flipped it over onto a piece of Basic White cardstock. You can get a different look every time using this technique. I love how the colours blended to create a purple too.

After it dried, I stamped the sentiment using Night of Navy ink, flicked Wink of Stella across the card and then continued with all the normal, ribbon, layer, embellish stuff. You’ll find a whole supply list below.

Biggest Wish – Thank you card

This week I am featuring the Biggest Wish stamp set on my Social Media. I really want to show how this set can be fun and bold or soft and elegant(ish).

Today’s card uses a colour combo inspired by the Global Design Project challenge (#GDP293 and a layout inspired by The Spot Challenge #163.

I usually try to design sticking to one suite or product bundle, but today I grabbed little bits from all over my craft room. See the full list of supplies below.

To create these sweet little gold leaves I actually cut up larger pieces from the Expressions in Ink Ephemera Pack. I piece created leaves for my whole card.

Thanks for checking out my stamping creation today. You can create cards like this too by grabbing your supplies using the image links below, or join my team to get access to tons of inspiration. The Stampin’ Up! Starter Kit is always an AMAZING deal!

Biggest Wish

Today’s card was a bit of a journey. I started out trying to create just a quick Catalogue Inspiration card for the TGIF Challenge #TGIFC317

Instead, I ended up smudging some black ink on the DSP of this card. I have to add some extra stamping to the card to cover up my smudges. In the end, it’s not my favourite card – but better than a nice card with a smudge on the front.

Here you can see the card I had envisioned, and the card I ended up creating to save the DSP.

If you’d like to see the whole process, check out my video below. You can also always join me at 9am (ish) on Tuesday mornings to see the live videos and chat with me while I create.

You’re as Sweet as a Peach

This long weekend has been filled with gardening, games and sunshine. It feels like summer here in BC. I am the type of person who truly stamps my mood and I am HAPPY and so grateful this weekend.

I created my card based on an awesome card sketch from Freshly Made Sketches (FMS486)

I used most Pale Papaya to create this card and to embellish ( since I didn’t have any in-color jewels on hand) I used the sparkly Champagne Rhinestones.

The Basic Border Dies are perfect for creating the stitched curve!

If you love these peaches as much as me and would like to join my upcoming stamp camp I still have 2 spots left at the $45 option and if you are in the US you can always opt in to the PDF and Fb group option.

Paper Pumpkin Alternatives- May 2021 Batter Up

I really didn’t think I was a baseball fan – but I LOVED playing with this month’s Paper Pumpkin. The images are fun and the cards feel crisp and clean.

I hope you get inspired by these alternatives.

The Night of Navy blends to colour the hat work so well and the White embossing on the hat makes for a nice touch.

This card has an overlay of crumb cake. I stamped the bats with Soft Suede ink and the All Star is second generation Soft Suede.

To complete this card I cut a Stitched Rectangle out of Midnight Madness to add a layer. I had to get creative with this one because I actually dropped my Sift Suede ink pad on both the baseball and the base card. That’s why I included a layer and crossed the bat over the ball. I was thrilled that I was able to still use both pieces from the kit.

Colour & Contour Bundle Card

Today I was creating a fancy year end card to give to my teaching team (I actually need 3 of them – my cohort partner, my teaching partner and my E.A.) They are all so fabulous! I used two challenges to help give me inspiration.

I love the Gilded Leafing and the In Color Jewels. They just add a sparkle that makes everything look so special. To see ow I applied the Gilded Leafing ( and grab a tip or two on how to use the Heat & Stick powder) watch my video. If you like it please subscribe and shar it with others. Thanks!

Live in Canada and love the new In Colours? It’s not too late to join my In Colour club. Your first month may arrive a bit late but you’ll be able to join us for the zoom and replay when you get your items. Then you’ll be all set for the next four months.

Have A Peachy Day

The weather here in BC feels like summer and these peaches transport me to my childhood, summer days in Penticton. I created today’s card specifically for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge. If you haven’t tried your hand at a sketch challenge you really should. Such a great way to design cards and sometimes really stretches your creative thinking.
