Good morning and happy Monday! Kim here with a quick birthday card share today! This month I challenged myself to use the April Sketchy Challenge as a starting point for a card. Even before choosing my products, I knew I wanted to make the triangle accent from stamps! I created a paper mask from my Impression Obsession stamped image so I could easily overlap my stamped design making it look like one continuous image – I love how it turned out! I took a black marker and ruler to divide the two sides. I created three layered areas using stamps, stencil and Clearsnap Chalk ink! I fussy cut the bird image and layered it with the Impression Obsession die cut pine boughs and a little black tread. The “Happy Birthday” sentiment was a perfect finishing touch! Thanks for taking the time to check out my card, try one of our…

She’s a Garden Girl. Oh my, yes she is. And I am oh, so very ready for Spring.Instead of focusing on the Garden Girl herself, I thought I would create a couple projects with the cute little flower bed and the sweet bird. Those little things are the exact signs of Spring I am waiting for here on the East Coast of Canada. To start these cards, I began by stamping the images on water colour paper. They were then coloured using Stampin’ Write Markers and a water brush or aqua painter. Of course, I am silly enough to hand cut out the images.Did you know that Stampin’ Up! carries embossing paste in several colours as well as a variety of stencils? On today’s project I use the white embossing paste to add texture to the background of my cards. The Pattern Party Decorative Masks Bundle comes with four 8×8…

Party Pandas just so happens to be one of my favourite exclusive items from this year’s promotion. You’ve got less than one month to try to snag these perfect little Party Pandas stamp set. Both of today’s projects begins with a small piece of watercolour paper. Using an aqua painter or water brush, I did a background wash with Calypso Coral refill ink. You can also create a watercolour wash using ink pads, markers and paint. While the ink dried on it’s own, I stamped several of the Party Pandas on Thick Whisper White cardstock using Stampin’ Up!’s Black Archival Ink and coloured them with Stampin’ Up! Blends Markers.After cutting out my pandas by hand, I arranged them around the…
