Truth and Reconciliation Day

September 30th is National Truth and Reconciliation Day. I made this card with the survivors of Residential Schools in mind.

It features a Sale-a-bration stamp set and the beautiful Tasteful Touches stamp set. A full list of supplies is listed below.

I love how detailed these feathers are. The way they turned out by sponging a darker orange around the outside is fabulous.

Thank EWE card

I was very lucky to be especially spoiled this week for my birthday. This card challenge from Global Design Project (GDP308) was the perfect layout to help me create some Thank You cards.

I love how simple this layout is and so easy to adapt to any stamp set. For my card I used the FREE Sale-a-bration stamp set – Counting Sheep, mixed with the Biggest Wish stamp set and the Playful Alphabet dies.

The sheep on the background were heat embossed with White Stampin’ Emboss powder, I fussy cut the white sheep and embellished the whole card with Shaker Shapes since the Granny Apple Green matched the ink I had chosen.

I just love a good, punny card. If you want to recreate this card for yourself I’ve included a supply list below. Make sure to place your order before September 30th since that is when Sale-a-bration ends and the Counting Sheep stamp set disappears. Don’t wait!

Counting Sheep Shimmer Card

I created a fun Counting Sheep card tonight using a sketch from Freshly Made Sketchs (#FMS502). These adorable sheep and the dies are both FREE Sale-a-bration items. For every $60 cdn order placed you can earn a fabulous reward.

I created a nearly identical card, using Poppy Parade Blends instead of Magenta Madness. I can’t decide which I prefer.

The shimmery clouds and balloons are a special touch to the card.

The look was created by using the scraps from my Wonderful Snowflakes to die cut the clouds and balloons. I can’t stand wasting such pretty paper – not even a scrap. The spaces left would also make great flowers or snowflakes.

You can see all the details in my video below. Make sure to subscribe to my channel while you are there.

Colourful Beautifully Penned DSP

I LOVE the gorgeous Black and White Beautifully Penned DSP that Stampin’ Up! is offering as a FREE reward during Sale-a-bration – but it also lends itself beautifully to having a splash of colour added to it. Today’s card was inspired by a sketch challenge and a post that Stampin’ Up! put on their FB page.

All I did to create this fun look is cut the DSP into 4 1″ X 4″ strips. Then I added some ink with blending brushes and splattered some reinker over top. Flirty Flamingo with a splash of Poppy Parade, So Saffron with a splash of Calypso Coral, Pear Pizzazz with a splash of Bermuda Bay, words in Balmy Blue, Highland Heather with a splash of Highland Heather. Then i filled in spaces with the squirrel from Nuts About Squirrels and some Pastel Pearls.

A very quick card to make and great for most seasons. Shop now until Sept 30 and earn this DSP for free with a $60 CDN order. Then have fun adding some colour to your Beautifully Penned DSP.
