Creativity – The More You Use, The more You Have – Maya Angelou. Hello! It’s Susan from Susan K. Weckesser Inc. on the blog today and all ready to get creative with you. We finally finished moving into Cochrane, Alberta and my new studio is kinda set up. It really is beautiful and I love seeing the Rocky Mountains out my studio windows. Today I am creating a Mother’s Day card using one of my designed co-branded Unity Stamp Co. kits. I had so much fun with this card. Have you ever looked at some of your themed stamps and wished that you could use them all year round? Well, take a look at how I created this fun card using one of my favourite Christmas stamp kits that I designed. SUPPLIES An (Artful) Ornament Stamp Kit: Susan K. WeckeserInc/Unity Stamp Co.

Hello! Kim here with a cute, quick all-occasion card. I like making all-occasion cards because it’s simple to pull out and use for whatever event requires a card. I can always stamp a sentiment on the inside at a later date, as needed. For this card I used one stamp! This adorable flower cluster from Impression Obsession. I love it! I also used Susan Weckesser “color POP mini” inks from Clearsnap. One stamp, three inks! The base of my card is done by stamping a diagonal floral line. I stamped the ink off twice before using the third impression. This gave me a very nice gray, recessed background. On a scrap piece of CSM Super Stock I stamped three images in black ink. I pressed my coloured ink pads down on a non-stick surface and used the ink plus water brush to colour the images. I “fussy cut” my flowers and…

Housework is something you do that nobody notices until you don’t do it. Author unknown Spring is my favourite time of the year. The weather warms up, the days get longer, snow begins to melt, and flowers bloom. However, with the brighter light and longer days I begin to notice things that I haven’t seen all winter, such as dust bunnies under the furniture, piles of discarded clothes in corners, and the list goes on. It motivates me to begin spring cleaning. While spring cleaning, look for some of these (and other) wonderful things that you can use on your scrapbooking projects: Styrofoam trays – for painting or handmade stamps Dryer sheets –for mixed media collage or for creating flowers Old kitchen tools – for making into pretty little presents or as stamps or as part of a mixed media project. Spray bottles –for mixing paint and as spritz bottles.…
