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.

Cute Fruit In Colour

In Colours are the BEST! I love all the Stampin’ Up! colours, but the In-Colours always add a touch of freshness to the year.

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.

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?

Sweet Silhouette

These beautiful (soon to be retiring) silhouette stamps and dies create quick and stunning cards.

The first card I created for the Spot Sketch Challenge #157. If you would like to see how I created the coloured background on the left check out my video below. I think this card could make a fabulous grad card or celebration of most life changes.

I then used some other pieces from this great bundle and some spare watercolour pieces ( because I never paint just one paper at a time!) to create a variation of this card.

The Sweet Silhouette dies and Silhouette Scenes stamp set will no longer be available after May 3rd. So if you love these grab them now! You can use the host code: BWWEEQGM, any order over $60 using this code will receive a little something special from me as a thank you.

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.

Playful Alphabet Birthday Fishes Card

I love creating with these Playful Alphabet Dies. The ability to create my own sentiments (especially puns) makes me smile. Using the Adhesive Sheets on the back make creating with the letters so easy as well.

The little fish were created using the walking egg die from the out of catalogue Chick Dies set. I am so excited to be able to create this since my oldest (almost 16!) STILL loves his Goldfish Crackers.

To see exactly how I created this, check out my video on You Tube. Make sure to subscribe while you are there.

In the video I mentioned an upcoming FREE workshop on April 10th. You can join my Online Workshop page for monthly FREE workshops. https://www.facebook.com/groups/OnlineStampinWorkshopWithLeah
