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.

I have been enjoying playing with the Sweet As A Peach bundle. I am getting ready for a Sweet As A Peach stamp camp being put on by myself and 6 other demos. There will be 14 projects total!! Registration has ended; however I still have two spots remaining for Option 2 and unlimited spots for people in the U.S. to order the PDF and attend the online portion.

Pretty Perennials

This morning I created two fun cards using the soon to be retiring Pretty Perennials bundle. I added in a bunch of Stampin’ Up!’s new In Colors. Fresh Freesia and Soft Succulent work so well with Highland Heather and Pool Party.

After my FB Live this morning, I played around with the same layout using one of my other favourite retiring products – Fine Art Floral DSP. I made sure to use my favourite stamp from this set – the awesome “happy” and paired it with the Birthday for the Global Design Project Theme Challenge (#GDP291)

If you’d like to see the details of how I created the Fresh Freesia card, check out my video. If you enjoy it please subscribe to my you tube channel.

Don’t miss out on any of the soon to retiring product from our Mini Catalogue. See all the Mini Catalogue Items here.

New Catalogue Launch

I am SOOO excited about the NEW 2021-2022 Annual Stampin’ Up! Catalogue! Last night I launched the catalogue on my FB Page. I walked everyone through the new catalogue – showing amazing samples along the way (created by myself and other people in a team swap I participated in). I also created 3 cards live. You can see the full video below.

The first card I created featured the Party Puffins. I shared some tips on how to get a great image when stamping the puffins.

Next up I created a lovely card using the Color & Contour stamp set and dies. This card was inspired by a sketch on Freshly made Sketches (FMS484 and the Color Throwdown Challenge #641.

After creating with the Color & Contours I also couldn’t resist sharing a sample using the Party Puffins again. Can you tell I LOVE the Puffins?

Finally I created a card using the Ombre Specialty Paper, one of the fabulous dies from the Basic Border Dies and a soon to be retiring from the Mini Catalogue – Pretty Perennials stamp set. Watch the video below to see how I created the fun rainbow look on the word ‘happy’.

Live in Canada? You can get a make’n’take pack (which includes the cardstock and specialty paper bits as well as the embellishments needed to make the three cards I made in the video) plus a mystery embellishment as a little thank you from me if you place a $60+ order using my host code: BWWEEQGM before Sunday night.

You can also enter to win the three cards by filling in my Door Prize draw form.

Memories & More Cards and Envelopes

The Flowers For Every Season Memories and More Cards and Envelopes are fabulous for creating quick and colourful cards. You get 10 cards and envelopes in the package ( 2 each of the 5 2020-2022 In Colours: Magenta madness, Just Jade, Misty Moonlight, Cinnamon Cider and Bumblebee). There are two things I especially love about these cards – they have white linings on the cards and colourful linings on the envelopes. These two touches I think make a card very polished.

The card I created today uses primarily retiring products – the card base, DSP, ribbon and stamp set. Check out the links below to see the FABULOUS sale prices as well. Don’t wait – these are available while supplies last or until May3rd.

To see all the details of how I created this card you can check out my video. Please subscribe to my You Tube channel while you are there. Thanks!

Many of these products are on sale ( the sale prices are not reflected here on this blog). If you use the host code: BWWEEQGM I will also send you a fun mystery embellishment.

Product List

I created another card this morning with the Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Cards and Envelopes. This one mixes my favourite 2020 colour ( Magenta Madness) with my new favourite stamps et from the upcoming catalogue (Party Puffins). You can get this stamp set on May4th, or contact me today to JOIN MY TEAM ( then you can buy the retiring cards and envelopes as well as the new stamp set at the same time!)

These Memories & More cards featured one of the current In Colour collections (2020-2022). In just a weeks time we will have 5 new In Colours released (the 2021-2023 version). I absolutely adore them – so much so, I am holding an In Colour Club. If you live in Canada, check out all the details by clicking the image below.

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.

Product List

In addition to these products I used some not yet released items ( Polished Pink Ink, Soft Succulent Ink, Colour and Contour Bundle and 2021-2023 In Colour Gems). You can grab these items on May 4th or contact me today to join my team and add these items to your Starter Kit now.
