Hello everyone – Kerry Engel here with a fun card for you to colour and design at home. This card is a bit of a mash-up. I first drew out the words and cut out half the butterfly on my electronic cutting machine. You could easily just print it out on cardstock and fussy cut half the butterfly if you do not have a cutting machine. – CLICK HERE for the project.I stamped around the words with a Falling Flowers stamp from Stampin’ Up! I made a mask of the stamp (and words) so I could layer the flowers down the side of the card.I used a Ranger  embossing pen and traced around the main title and used clear embossing powder to create a raised border on the letters. I  coloured in the letters, butterfly and flowers using my Chameleon pens. Shading and layering with various yellows and oranges. To finish it…

Hello everyone – Cathy Caines here  I think by playing with ice cream and popsicle stamps, I can convince myself that it’s Summer outside my froze bitten window. Oh yes, the calendar tells me it’s Spring and that silly Shuebenacadie Sam groundhog supposedly saw his shadow but it couldn’t be farther from the truth on the East Coast of Canada.  Perhaps it’s time for that guy to get some glasses. I spent a great deal of time stamping different colour combinations and putting together a number of die cuts using the Cool Treats stamp and die cuts.  It’s the way I roll. It wasn’t until I truly thought about my favourite ice cream that I found the perfect fit. Mint Chocolate Chip! The delicate white doilies are a perfect way to accent the card as it looks like the little wrappers that sometimes comes on the ice cream cones. While,…

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a layout featuring ‘Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper from Stampin’ Up! This paper is a free item in the Sale-A-Bration campaign that ends March 31, 2017, so hurry if you want some!!!  If you’re not familiar with Sale-A-Bration, you get free items from a special catalogue with every $60 you spend ($50 for my American friends), so it’s a great time of year to stock up on Stampin’ Up!  products. The pack of free paper comes with 12 sheets, 3 each of 4 designs that you can colour with whatever you want!  Pencil crayons, markers, watercolours….. colour a little, or colour a lot! I decided to colour my paper with Chameleon pens.  These are SO cool.  They are alcohol ink markers that allow you to create a variety of shades from just one pen.  So all the shades of pink and green that you…

Today on our blog, Cathy Caines shares her tips and techniques for creating 8.5″ x 11″ scrapbook pages.   ‘I had been waiting for this. This was the part of the road trip on my old stomping grounds in Wolfville, Nova Scotia.  We had pitas and marched down the main road to check out Jane’s thrift shop.  Before we left, I took a moment to take in the view. The old mail box in the tall grass with the mud flats in the back ground. It’s funny how nostalgia works. I miss this place. A place I once called home. A place that helped me grow. Where I made mistakes but had great successes. It’s a part of how I came to be.’ My scrapbook albums are now 8.5 x11”. I switched from my 12×12” albums to the smaller size in 2016 for a couple reasons.  I personally enjoyed…

Hi, Tracy here! Today I wanted to share a quick and easy card idea using Stampin’ Up! Stamps, Ranger Archival Ink, Chameleon Pens and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. Project Recipe: Stampin’ Up! – Falling Flowers Stamp Set-  Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set (Sentiment) – Cardstock- white and black Ranger- Tim Holtz Distress Archival Ink- Soot Black – Stickles- Yellow Chameleon Pens – YO3, YG3, RD4, BG4, PR4 Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L- EZ Runner Grand, Black 3D Foam Squares I started with a piece of white cardstock that was 3.75×5. Using my Ranger Archival ink I stamped the Stampin’ Up! flowers and leaves along the top and bottom of the cardstock. This stamp set is perfect for trying Chameleon markers for the first time. The lines of the images are a little thicker, providing a little more forgiveness when colouring. Once my images were coloured I added my sentiment. I picked nice…

  Lately I have been feeling un-inspired. I want to be in my craft room but it seems like everything I make, I can’t get quite right. While playing around with the Lift Me Up bundle in the Stampin’ Up! Occasions catalog, I was stamping in black and gold and red… pretty much every colour of the rainbow. And then I finally used silver embossing powder. BAM. That’s all I needed to get the wheels turning.  I stamped in silver and then I did some die cuts in silver foil.  I was really impressed how the silver foil Up and Away Thinlet die ran through the Big Shot with ease.  This particular card has a lightly water coloured background using the tempting turquoise Stampin’ Up! refill ink. This gave it a look as if it was a sky. Many of you know that I die cut and stamp…
