West Coast Creators Blog Hop – February 2021

It’s the 14th of the month – time for another West Coast Creators Blog Hop!  This one features Birthday cards and a lot of the TWO amazing Hey Chick Bundles!!  Hop around see all the amazing cards created by our team members!  Leave a little 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.

Here is my card for the Blog Hop. I used the Hey Birthday Chick stamp set and dies.

I used some soon to be retiring Terracotta Tile scalloped ribbon and pinched it in a bow with Linen Thread. The Happy Birthday die cut has adhesive sheet on the back to help it stick to the card easily and the vellum stitched circle creates a nice soft focus on the card. Scroll down to see the full product list.

Of course I also stamped the inside of the card – no naked cards (or envelopes)!

Thanks for hopping along with us!

Hey Chick! Crafty Collaborations Blog Hop

This is my first time joining a Craft Collaborations Blog Hop!  This one features the hilarious Hey Birthday Chick Bundle!!  Hop around and see all the amazing cards created by some amazingly talented crafters! 

Here is my fun birthday card. The dies make using this set so simple – and I even remembered to use adhesive sheets on the back of the Basic White cardstock before I cut out the Happy Birthday sentiment.

To create the colourful background, I used strips of paper adhered to a Window Sheet and then die cut the whole layer with a circle. A great way to use up paper scraps!

January 2021 West Coast Creators Blog Hop

I am so lucky to be a part of a fabulous team – The West Coast Creators. The group is full of creative inspiration and challenges, support, and good friends. For this month’s hop I was playing around with the new Pretty Perennials stamp set and dies from the Stampin’ Up! Jan – June Mini Catalogue. I was also inspired by the TGIF Sketch Challenge #298. I love these flowers and how the die accents make them pop. The font for the sentiments was the real eye-catching part of this set for me – it just makes me HAPPY!

Thanks for hopping along with us!

To create this card I stamped the flowers in 2nd Generation Flirty Flamingo, Calypso Coral and Crushed Curry. Then I die cut the flowers and added accents in the same colours using the coordinating dies. The sentiment was stamped in Bermuda Bay and then fussy cut. The background is Smoky Slate, embossed with the Pine Planks Embossing Folder. The circle in the back is cut using the largest Stitched Shapes circle out of Fine Art Floral 12 X 12 DSP. I embellished the flower centers using Opal Rounds. I think these are my new FAVOURITE embellishment!

West Coast Creators October Blog Hop

I am excited to once again be participating in the West Coast Creators Blog Hop.

I am loving creating for Hallowe’en and especially the orange/purple/black combo (this time I specifically used Calypso Coral and Highland Heather). What makes my card even better is that the Playing With Patterns DSP that I used is on sale!! Check out the full details of the DSP sale here.

Some of the fun techniques I used on this card are:

  • The Black Ribbon – which is actually Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding, coloured in using a Black Stampin’ Blend.
  • Sponging Black Memento ink onto an embossed piece of cardstock to allow it to look tarnished and to let the pattern pop out more. I also sponged the edges and across the front of all the other strips of paper to make them less bright.
  • Using the Celebration Tidings dies twice to cut one tag down to the size and shape I wanted it to be.
  • The paper strips are each 1″ wide which allowed for nice spacing on the 5.25″ black card front that was then attached to a 5.5″ wide Blackberry Bliss card base.

West Coast Creators Blog Hop – Christmas Means More Card

This festive card was created for the West Coast Creators Blog Hop ~ August! I used Shimmery Embossing Paste to create a gorgeous textured background and then let the sentiment from the Christmas Means More stamp set speak for itself.

I actually created most of this card live on FB while waiting for the paste on another card to dry. You can check it out on my FB page or on You Tube.

West Coast Creators Blog Hop

Hi! Thanks for hopping by. My name is Leah Dixon and I am an Independent Demonstrator for Stampin’ Up! I am a mom, teacher, and avid crafter. I’m so excited to be a part of the WCC Last Chance Blog Hop!

I chose to create a Pop-out card using one of my favourite stamp sets – Everything Amazing. It is great for birthdays, friendship, graduation and other achievements.

To achieve the pop-out look you can follow these instructions:

1. Card Base: I started with a regular card base 11” x4-¼” and score at the 5-½” mark.
2. Then I cut a window in the front of the card base using Stitched Nested Label dies.
3. Inside Fold: I started with a 10-½” x 4” piece of cardstock. On the 10-½” side, I scored at the 5-¼” and 7-7/8” marks. Then I folded the piece into a Z fold.
4. I stamped a balloon image on the largest section of the inside fold and adhered the Z fold to the inside of the card leaving 1/8” space around all the edges.
5. I stamped the Amazing image and extra words onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock and cut it out with the next smallest Stitched Nested Label die. I then cut another Stitched Nested die using Calypso Coral CS ( in the same size as the origianl die cut and glued my stamped image to this piece.
6. Then I closed the card with the Z fold tucked inside.
7. I put Tear and Tape through the window on the right side and adhered the shape in the window and pressed down on the right side. When the card opens the shape should be adhered to the Z fold.

To decorate the remainder of the card, I stamped the balloon image using Night of Navy on the front of the card, Punched out Balloon Punches using Bonanza Buddies DSP ( I punched two of each balloon so I could have the same DSP deisgn showing inside and outside of the card) and silver thread and embellished with Self-Adhesive Sequins.
