Happiness Abounds – Colour Challenge card

Every Wednesday morning I go live on FB and You Tube to create something using the Stampin’ Up! product that I am featuring that week. This Wednesday I created with the Happiness Abounds Bundle – a set I am featuring since I am also hosting a Hues of Happiness Stamp Camp with my team in July – see all the details and register HERE or through the link below.

The card design was inspired by the Global Design Project Colour Challenge (#GDP349).

This quick and easy technique of colouring the background with Stampin’ Blends was something fun I learned at a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator exclusive Creativity Now event.

All Squared Away Sketch Challenge Card

I chose to use the All Squared Away bundle ( which is currently on sale – 20% off) to create a card for the Global Design Project Sketch Challenge (#GDP334).

Sweet As A Peach Card

Did you hear? Stampin’ Up! has announced a 20% off sale on the Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine and 13 select bundles. Sweet As A Peach is one of these sale bundles.

This card was inspired by the Global Design Project sketch challenge.

This set is SO easy to use. I love stamping these peaches in Pale Papaya with a soft Calypso Coral sponged edge.

Aside from CASEing the layout and the use of the lattice, I copied the double loop ribbon. I did this by cutting a piece of Pale Papaya Open Weave Ribbon in half then tying it in a bow.

Here is the full list of supplies I used:

Sweet Conversations Cards

All week I am focusing on making valentines. Not the lovey kind (although I guess I should make one of those for Noah) but the friendship/ thinking of you kind. I have a class full of sweeties that deserve a bit of extra sunshine in their day, plus a bunch of friends I don’t get to see enough of these days. I want everyone to know I am thinking of them and grateful for them in my life.

Today’s card was inspired by two different challenges.

Global Design Project #325 | Color Challenge

The set I featured was the Sweet Conversations stamp set and Sweet Heart dies from the Stampin’ Up! Jan – June 2022 Mini Catalogue.

Using the same Sweet Conversation bundle and adding in some of the coordinating DSP I also showed this fun card.

The hearts on this card were die cut from cardstock (and heat embossed to add the sentiment to the green heart) and mostly from die-cutting from the DSP (bottom left sheet of mixed hearts). I love the watercolour patterns on the rainbow array of hearts.

To see all the details of these cards you can watch my video below.

Snowy Christmas Card

Today I am playing with the Perfectly Plaid stamp set again – but using it to create a more traditional Christmas card with a snowy scene. I am also using a sketch from Global Design Project (GDP318) to inspire me.

This card looks a bit complicated, but in reality uses very few materials and only 1 ink and 1 reinker!! The tress and sentiment were stamped in Garden Green and the snow was created by splattering White Craft ink across the stamped scene. To see exactly how I created this please check out my video below and make sure to follow my You Tube channel to see all my latest creations, tips and tricks.

Here is a full list of supplies used to create this rustic card. If you get a chance to shop with me TODAY ( Nov 18, 2021) there is even a Seasonal Sale happening (10% off cardstock, 15% off inks, and 20% off dies).

Frosted Gingerbread Challenge Card

One of my favourite parts of Christmas time is baking/decorating cookies with the kids. This Frosted Gingerbread bundle reminds me of those days and of my Nana’s Gingersnaps. I couldn’t resist creating with it when I saw this week’s colour challenge at Global Design Project (#gdp313) and the sketch challenge for TGIF Challenges (#tgifc337).

My original design used a slightly larger layer and I accented with Rhinestones. The card I created in my live video, I trimmed the Sahara Sand layer to be a bit smaller and I got bold with the Matte Black Dots. The Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon was used to sparkle up the card a bit on both.

The black layer behind the sentiment was placed there more for function than design. It was used to create a wider base on the sentiment so I could attach it with Dimensionals and it would stick to the card base rather than the ribbon that runs behind it.

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!

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.

In Your Words Harvest Meadow Card

It may still be summer – but my favourite season- Autumn is coming! Pool Party and Calypso Coral are the perfect colours to ease the transition from summer fun to cool autumn days. This card was created using a card sketch from Global Design Project (#GDP306).

A few of the details that make this card pop are the masking in the background using a Paper Lattice piece, the embossing and fussy cutting of the main word and the glimmer from both the Flirty Flamingo metallic ribbon as well as the Pale Papaya In Colour Jewels. To see all the tricks to making this card check out my video below. Dont’ forget to subscribe to my channel while you are there.
