Hello crafty friends! Tracy McLennon here, and today I have a pretty little card to share and a few little step by step tips on simple colouring technique. The stamps and coordinating dies are from Picket Fence Studios. The Que Sera, Sera collection.  Here are all of the details. Step one is to stamp the images you would like to use onto white cardstock using Ranger Jet Black Archival Ink. Now I gathered the colours that I wanted to use on my images. A little trick of mine, is that I keeping the backing from my favourite Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Foam Squares. They can be used as blending surfaces. I always have a little pile of them at my desk for just this purpose. Often when I am colouring I like to add colour straight to cardstock in the areas where I want the colour the darkest. Here is…

I am Party Puffin obsessed!! Okay, okay, you caught me. Being from Newfoundland, Canada and puffins being our official bird and all, the second I saw the word “puffin” I said “Yes, please!” It’s just icing on the cake that these puffins are in a party mood. You are looking at one of the new products available in the newly released annual Stampin’ Up! 2021-2022 catalogue (May 4th release date). This stamp set is called Party Puffins and I can’t get enough of it! I mean, look at that little fish wrapped up in a bow! Am I right? Being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I got my hands on some of the new product available including the black and white paper you are seeing here from the Pattern Paper Designer Series Paper pack. This paper actually comes in a pack of 40 pages 12×12”. It has a little bit of…

This new collection of stamps and coordinating dies, called the Hats Off-Line, from Art Impressions is FABULOSA! The new collection has three sets of stamps that include the coordinating dies to make cutting the bits and pieces a breeze. The names of the sets are pretty easy to remember – Miss Set, Mrs. Set, and Mr. Set! PERFECTION! How adorable are all those HATS!!!! Here is a gorgeous little card I found over on the Art Impressions Facebook page created by Tasha Jorgensen. Tasha’s card features the Mrs. Set. LA LA LOVE IT! Pop on over the Art Impressions website for all the details! (PS- do you see those little face mask stamps?!?!?!?) Happy Monday Friends!

Spring is in the air! And so is the feeling of spring cleaning. In the craft room, I have been in a “bash my stash” mood in order to help unclutter and organize. I love being able to use up full packages of embellishments or finishing off a roll of washi. It’s such a great feeling! So, when I received my free Sale-a-Bration packs of the Oh So Ombree 6×6 patterned paper I wanted to figure out a way to use it rather than leave it on my shelf collecting dust. It always helps when you love the product that you are trying to “bash”. The ombre style in this paper package allows me to use die cuts to create fast and gorgeous projects. I began with the blue ombre paper and paired it with the Stampin’ Up! Many Layered Blossoms die. The colours are gorgeous and really help this…

Hello! Kim here with a quick card share using the Heartfelt Creations Summer’s Garden collection. For my card, I have used some patterned paper and the 2 craft die sets, shown in the photo below. These dies cut images found within the collection or can be used with coordinating stamps! The background of my card is cut from one sheet of patterned paper, to which I added some Therm-O-Web Transfer Gel Duo through a ‘well loved’ Stampers Anonymous stencil! I let the gel dry, then ran it through my laminator to apply some shimmery deco foil details. While the Transfer Gel Duo was drying I readied my elements for the card. I made my 3D flower, securing the layers with little snippets of my Elizabeth Craft Designs’ double-sided adhesive. I coloured my wooden sentiment [unknown supplier] with Ranger’s Distress Oxide Ink, Crackling Campfire was the perfect colour for my paper!…

Okay, I am seriously obsessed with the Simple Stories – Simple Cards Card Kits! They are ABSOLUTELY gorgeous and come with EVERYTHING you need to create 8 show-stopping cards! I created this card using the Simple Stories Hello Lovely Card Kit. So here is the story. As a scrapbooker, I can not send bought cards to my friends. I just can’t do it.  I feel like I am cheating on my supplies LOLOLOLOLOL.  And there are just times when I don’t have a card ready to go – these kits are soooooooooooooooooooooo the answer!  Beautiful designs, no scissors necessary, and of course you can add your special touches if you like. All you need is adhesives. And for this card, I used Glue Dots Adhesives Pop-Up! Dots and Permanent Gluetape. Did I mention that with the kit you can make 8 different cards? You sure can!  In 2-3 minutes, I…

Hello! Hello! Hello! Here on the East Coast of Canada, we are in and out of lockdown. Emotions are up and down and I am trying to make sure that I make time for creativity. Often creativity helps keep me calm and grounded.  So, here we are.  Image copyright 2021 Stampin’ Up! Today,  I am playing with Stampin’ Up!’s Hydrangea Haven bundle. This bundle came out with the new Occasions Catalogue that was released at the beginning of January. I seemed to be drawn to it for the ease in which the images could be coloured. But also because the sentiments are extremely fitting. Lately, everyone is having good and bad days – the sentiments are perfect to send to anyone. Spreading kindness through cards. The image is framed with the Rectangle Stitched Dies. I love that you can use the outside or inside of the die cuts in this…
