Look what you can do in 5 minutes...seriously...I ran a piece of whisper white through the big shot, using the new embossing folder in the mini. Add some new designer paper, ribbon, and the cute little reindeer from Merry and Bright...ans voila...a quick, easy and lovely (if I do say so myself)card.
The base is old olive, layered with chocolate chip and real read...my all time favourite combo for Christmas. I sponged all the edges with some choc chip to give a distressed look.
If you live in Canada...remember, my shop is open 24 hours a day 7 days a week for your shopping enjoyment.
Local gals...I have a booking bonus for Oct....book a workshop, and I will give you an embossing folder like the one I used on this card.
Let me know if there is a specific technique you would like to see...I love a challenge!

Way back when I first started stamping, background stamps were the way to go. No designer paper in those days! Well the times have changed, and I use DSP on most of my cards. In straightening up my stampin room I came across the french script, and then used the Baroque Motif over top. I used the new soft suede paper and ink...this is so elegant. I brushed the edges of 3 pretties flowers and added pearls. Hope the happy couple likes this...
Thanks for stopping by....we are now officially sold out for our Create for the Cure event...maybe we need to start a waiting list!!!

I will never forget standing by my Mom's bed as the doctor confirmed that yes, she did in fact have Breast Cancer. In a word "devastating". She served Christmas dinner wearing a Santa hat to cover her bald head. What a trooper.
The good news..that was 12 years ago...and she will cooking Christmas dinner for us this year too!
Lisa and I are so excited about our Create for the Cure event. Together we can help stamp out breast cancer. Our projects are awesome, we have some surprises that you have to be there to take advantage of, great prizes...and the satisfaction that you are making a difference in the fight against breast cancer.

Here is one of the cards we are making tomorrow. The snowflake stampset is brand new. Paired with the designer paper and the new shimmer paint, and faster than you can say "stamp it" you have a lovely little Christmas card.
I will post all 5 cards tomorrow, after everyone is finished. If anyone is interested, I can make these available as kits. I will do all the stamping...all you need to have is adhesive.
The cost of the kits will be $8.00 which will include the 5 cards and envies. All the proceeds from any kits sold will be donated to our fundraiser for the fight against Breast Cancer.
Good luck getting your kiddies ready for back to school. Ever since my kids were little I made it a tradition to take the first day of school off. Even though Meaghan is in 3rd year nursing at UWO, and Kathryn starting Grade 12...I am carrying on the tradition...and spending the day in the company of other stampers...it will be a great day!
Keep checking in...Lisa and I will be releasing ALL the details for the Create for a Cure on Oct 3rd.

At long last summer...what a wonderful day it was...hot and sunny! I took a minute to make this card (4 actually). Added some glitter to the wings, and used the medium flower from the daisy die as the frame to the little bee.
The card base is so saffron, and I used chocolate chip ink. The designer paper is retired, but adds just the right touch for the bees.
Thanks for stopping by....
