Hello Creative Scrapbookers! My name is Jayme Loge and I hope you enjoy this little blog offering for your inspiration.  Because let me tell you, my oh my! did I have fun playing with these adorable Whoot stamp collection from Art Impressions! I just love their squeezable, squishable big-eyed faces! They are simple enough cards, but a lot of work goes into coloring or painting the images and I just didn’t want to get in the way of their whooty cuteness! The first card I made features a simple stenciled background (Tim Holtz stencils). I used a sponge applicator and Dylusions paint over a page torn out from an old book. I totally geek out over using book pages any time I can! I colored the stamped image with Chameleon markers and assembled everything on a Kraft cardstock. The next card features a row of water colored Whoot with a…

I have completely fallen in love with Kerry Engel’s martini greeting card! How fun is this beautiful little creation. I can think of a few girlfriends who would get a real giggle out of receiving this card. To create the background Kerry followed these basic steps 1. On a piece of Creative Scrapbooker Super Stock, blend Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks. 2. Spritz with water and watch the oxide effect. 3. Gently pat a Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Adhesive sheet onto the base – only part of the adhesive will sit down. 4. Sprinkle with Ranger embossing powder and heat set! Here is a complete list of supplies that Kerry used.

Do you ever find yourself playing with product, not knowing what will come of it and finish with a fun project! This was the case with this coffee card! I started by playing with some Ranger Distress Oxide Inks, masking off the outside border. Once the colours were placed I used this fun Pam Bray stamp from Emerald Creek to stamp over the coloured centre. Next I masked away the centre, so that I could use the same stamp around the border! Fun & simple! This was the perfect background for a fun, chipboard coffee cup from Southern Ridge Trading Company. The chipboard piece was embossed with Emerald Creek’s Just Java Aroma Embossing Powder – smells as good as it looks! I outlined the words of the chipboard cup with a Ranger  Dylusions’ paint pen and added some ‘steam’ with a Distress Marker. Coffee cheers to you!

This is one of my most favourite times of the year. The leaves are turning and there’s a chill in the air. But there’s something pretty special about the pumpkins and shorter nights. Maybe it’s the beautiful natural colour combinations. Or that the holiday season is around the corner. Perhaps it’s the idea of sipping hot drinks in your favourite sweater on your deck. I can’t quite put my finger on it but I know there’s something about this time of year that I love.Th e Stampin’ Up! Country Home Stamp Set was just released in the 2018 Holiday Catalogue and it simply gave me ‘all the feels’. So much so that I used this stamp set as the focal point in a card swap. A card swap? Yup. If you aren’t sure what that is, let me tell you. Sometimes in the world of cardmaking, a group of crafters…

Hello friends! Tracy McLennon here, and I am loving that Autumn is right around the corner in my neck of the woods. Cooler days, changing leaves and of course pumpkin spice everything. To celebrate in a crafty way, I created this Take Life One Cup At A Time card, with a fall colour scheme. I started my creation by stamping this fabulous Art Impressions image onto white cardstock using black Archival Ink. Then I added colour using Chameleon Pens. I did so using some simple bold shading for more of a cartoon look. Then I simply fussy cut around the images leaving a narrow white border. I inked the edges of all of my patterned and cardstock layers using Walnut Stain Distress Oxide Ink. Using patterned papers from the Hello Fall collection from Carta Bella, I hand cut leaves that were about 1.5” long and 1” wide. Then I added them…
