This Little Piggy

Today I would like to share with you a couple of cards that I have created using one of my favourite stamp sets from the Annual Catalogue.

This Little Piggy stamp set is so darn adorable I just can’t help but smile each time I use it.

Wood mount (143919) $38 / Clear mount (143922) $27

Aren’t they sweet? The first card that I am going to share with you was designed for my In-Colour club last month. Our feature colour was Powder Pink and with Valentine’s Day in February this card was perfect!

Hogs & Kisses

I started by stamping the beautiful floral image from the Wood Words stamp set in Powder Pink and then just layered, layered, layered!

To make that super cute little piggy really pop, I stamped it on Powder Pink cardstock with Tuxedo Black memento ink and then highlighted the lines using the dark Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends.

I couldn’t resist adding the little heart from the Dog Bulider Punch in Lovely Lipstick cardstock. I am so pleased with the way that this card turned out.

… So She Did

This next card I created while at my Sweet Winter Weekend crop a couple of weekends ago. Again I couldn’t resist using the sweet little piggy 🙂

I just love the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper and think that it paired so beautifully with the colours and feel of the flying pig. For the colour combination on this card I used Mint Macaron, Grapefruit Grove and Whisper White.

A close up of this little cutie! Once again I stamped the image using Tuxedo Black Memento ink this time onto Petal Pink cardstock. I used Stampin’ Blends to colour and highlight in order to really bring the image to life. The inside of the card is simply stamped with “so she did”. A very simple card with a wonderful message.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I hope you enjoyed today’s creative inspirations.

Valentines Crafting

It’s hard to believe that we are nearing the end of January all ready! This weekend I have been busy crafting for a Valentine’s Day market that I am in on Saturday February 2nd at the Castlegar Complex.

I hope that you have all had a chance to check out the 2019 Occasions Catalogue, it is full of amazingly fun stamping products. My go to Valentine set this weekend has been the Meant to Be bundle and the All My Love Designer series Paper.

All My Love Designer Series Paper (148576)

These products are so versatile. They can be used for Valentine’s Day, Wedding, Anniversary or even just an everyday note to let someone know how much they are loved. Products like these are perfect to add to your craft stash because they can be used time and time again.

I love how this card turned out! Lovely Lipstick, Flirty Flamingo and Crumb Cake are a stunning colour combination and are perfect for a sweet Valentine card. Because I had so much fun making this card I also created a scrapbook layout for my February scrapbook club using products from this same suite.

These products are so much fun to create with because the images, colours and patterns are so inspiring. More importantly, like so many of Stampin’ UP!’s products the co-ordination of the Product Suites makes designing so simple. Less time spent on trying to find matching items and more time creating stunning projects 🙂

Simply Stampin’

Back to Basics … Ink, Paper and Stamps!

This class is designed to bring back the simple art/love of stamping.  It is great for beginners that are wanting to start out and also good for experienced stampers to bring back the basics.  With all the fun and fancy new tools and products out there, it is easy to forget how simple and beautiful a project can be by simply putting ink to paper.  This class will showcase simple cards that can be made in minutes without all the fuss and distraction of oodles of extras.

February’s edition of the Simply Stampin’ class will be held on Tuesday February 19th @ 7:00pm.

This class will be hosted monthly and as the series goes on, we will learn and explore different stamping techniques.  There is no obligation to come to each monthly class, although I hope that you do!  Sign up for the ones that catch your eye or fit in to your schedule. 

Class will be held on the third Tuesday of the month at 7:00pm in Trail.

Cost of the class is $12 or FREE if you place a $35 Stampin’ UP! Product order that night.  All you will be required to bring is your favourite adhesive and a pair of scissors.

Feel free to bring a friend along to give Stamping a try, no experience necessary.

For February’s class we will be creating these three simple yet beautiful cards using a few of my favourite stamp sets.

I really enjoyed keeping it simple and creating these fun and beautiful cards and I think that you will too! #simplestamping

I hope that you will join us for a relaxing evening of stamping, enjoy a light refreshment and meet some lovely stamping friends.

Let’s Tea Together

Today I want to share with you one of my favourite items from the 2019 Occasions catalogue. This beautiful, elegant stamp set was a must have for me the minute I saw it. Tea Time reminds me both of spending time now with my friends chatting over a cup of tea (or coffee as the case may be) and also of those early childhood days of hosting tea parties. I simply adore this stamp set …

Tea Together cling stamp set (#148779)

As soon as it was delivered to my doorstep I couldn’t wait to start creating! First I started with a Mother’s Day card, the greetings in this set are perfect for that!

So pretty! The subtle colour combination of Blushing Bride and Mint Macaron pair perfectly with the elegance of the tea pot and the roses. To get the beautiful embossed background I used the Lace Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder that can be found on Page 11 of the Occasions Catalogue (OC). Notice how perfectly the images are cut out? That’s because I used the Tea Time Framelits Dies that I got for FREE for spending $120 during the Sale-a-Bration promotion!

Tea Time Framelits Dies (#149697)

With these you can cut out perfect images in just seconds! They even thought to give us duplicate dies for some of the commonly repeated images like the leaves and the rose buds. 🙂

Next I decided to use one of the sentiments from the Strong & Beautiful stamp set to create a lovely thank you card.

I paired the images on this card with products from the Tea Room suite found on Page 15 of the Annual Catalogue (AC). These products are a match made in heaven. Together they make creating and coordinating super simple.

I also decided that these images would make a fun scrapbook layout.

Scrapboook Club layout for January 2019

I love the way that this double layout turned out, I can’t wait to add some photos. The Designer Series Paper (DSP) that I used is the Botanical Butterfly DSP that you can get for FREE with a $60 order during the Sale-a-Bration promotion. The smaller butterflies are punched directly out of this paper using the new Butterfly Duet punch that can be found in the OC on Page 35. The larger butterfly was fussy cut from a separate page in this same paper pack.

So what do you think … have you fallen in love with these products too? If you have then you should also take a look at the Project Bundle on page 17 of the Sale-a-Bration brochure.

Tea Together Cards Bundle (#151046)

This bundle contains all of the products that you will need to make the featured projects in the photo above. When you purchase the bundle you qualify to get the Tea Time Framelits Dies for FREE during the Sale-a-Bration promotion.

I hope that you agree that the Tea Together stamp set is TEA-riffic!! Thanks for stopping by 🙂
