West Coast Creators Blog Hop – April 2021

It’s the 14th of the month – time for another West Coast Creators Blog Hop!  This month we are featuring retiring items!!  The product we are using will only be available until May 3rd. Hop around see all the amazing cards created by our team members!  Leave a little love (do a bit of shopping if you see something you 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.

My card is inspired by Tammy Wilson ( Stampin’ Up! Artisan) and is a mash up of 3 retiring sets.


I created this card for my friend’s daughter who graduates from high school this year. I used a fun watercolour technique to create the colour strip and I embossed the images and sentiment with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. To see how I created the rainbow background check out my facebook live: https://fb.watch/4S98yKT4ZU/.Can you also spy the new product in this card?

Dino Days

I don’t have small kids anymore and yet I STILL love creating with dinosaurs. Luckily I have friends and family with littles who appreciate these cards. The dino card I created today was inspired by a sketch challenge #mojosketch557

I also used a ton of soon to retiring product. Like the real dinosaurs, the Dino Days stamp set, the Denim ribbon and the DSP will all be extinct soon. Check out my full product list below and grab your items before they are gone! Or head straight to my shop to choose from the full retiring list.

Wildly Happy Baby Card

I LOVE having a reason to create and when I created this card I actually had 3 reasons to make it!

Most importantly – my cousin and his wife just welcomed their first child into the world – Welcome Harriet Batchelor!

Secondly I wanted to participate in two different challenges. The Global Design Project (#GDP286) and the Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration Challenge (#HSSIC361).

My third reason to create this card was to highlight some of our soon to be retiring products from Stampin Up! I don’t want to miss out on a minute of playing with some of my favourite supplies. I also don’t want you to miss out on grabbing these while you still can! See below for a full list of supplies used ( and click the links to purchase – some even have sale pricing right now!)

Hello! Kangaroo & Company Card

I LOVE this Kangaroo & Company stamp set and die bundle – the kangas are so sweet! However, today’s card shows how you can use the other element sin the set to make fun creations as well. I am going to be mailing out some random hello cards to friends, family and customers soon – so here is one of the cards I’ll be sending.

The layout for this card was inspired by one of my favourite sketch sites – Freshly Made Sketches ( FMS475).

To start I stamped the cute envelope on the Thick Basic White background using Smoky Slate ink. Then I used Blending brushes to apply Magenta Madness ink (on the left) and Balmy Blue ink (on the left) to a Basic White shape cut using the largest die in the Stitched So Sweetly set. As I applied the ink I covered 2/3 of the shape with each colour – creating the Misty Moonlight – ish colour in the center. I then used the matching inks to stamps the hearts. I used the matching inks to colour the hearts on the envelopes and to ink JUST the hello on the Hello Baby stamp. I wrapped twine around the scallop shape and tied a bow on the right. Then I put everything together with Dimensionals. A fairly quick card with a soft but stunning look.

To order the product need to make this card ( and many more) you can click the links below or go straight to my shop.

Hey Birthday Chick!

You may have noticed the Hey Birthday Chick stamp set in the Jan – June Mini (p. 52) and thought Gee that’s fun! You may have even thought it looked familiar – because it is. During Sale-a-bration 2017 a set called Hey Chick was the most popular stamp set, so Stampin’ Up! created this new birthday version. Even better, they are bringing back Hey Chick and they are offering coordinating dies to go with both sets!! These two bundles are only available from Feb 2nd – June 30th.

The advantage to ordering the bundles is that you save 10% and you can earn FREE sale-a-bration items with every $60 order.

I loved this stamp set the first time around – so I am THRILLED to have more pieces to play with. Here is the card I created today. We did a little bit of masking and used the amazing Blending Brushes.

To see more samples using these bundles – follow my facebook page – I’ll be posting cards daily this week.

The video below goes into some details about how I made the card – you may want to layer up the front piece – I got lucky and my Blends did not bleed into the inside of my card. Phew!
