By The Tide - Delightful Dijon & Night of Navy

Sunday, May 31, 2015

For this card I took the colour combination of my latest "Four Feathers" card. I think it ended up looking better than this one. But as a masculine card it might just pass.

I deliberately stamped the fish and seahorse in the background twice. Once with Delightful Dijon and then slightly offset with Night of Navy.


Inside - the off stamping didn't turn out a well as it did on the front.

By The Tide - Tip Top Taupe & Soft Sky

Saturday, May 30, 2015

Hope you aren't getting tired of the "By the Tide" cards. For this version I wanted to use the Woodgrain embossing folder to look like water, and again use a new In-Colour. The Tip Top Taupe went well enough with Soft Sky, so that is what I used.

The colour combination does look better in real life. As you can see I fussy cut out a couple of elements to make them pop and give a little dimension.


 Inside


I hope you aren't getting tired of seeing cards made with this stamp set, but when I get a new stamp set I like to play with it and execute all my ideas. I will decide later which ones I will use for the class using this stamp set.

By The Tide - Mint Macaron

Friday, May 29, 2015

For this "By the Tide" card, I decided to use one of the new In-Colours, Mint Macaron. When I was taking the photos later, I couldn't help but wonder what it might look have looked if I'd used gold or silver embossing powder. I might just try that another time. In the mean time, here is this version.


I like the knotted linen thread wrapped around the corners of each stamped piece.


And, the inside.


I still have a few more ideas to share using this stamp set, so be sure to check in again to have a look.

By The Tide - Cased

Thursday, May 28, 2015

Today's "By the Tide" card I cased from Pinterest created by Narelle Farrugia. I just couldn't resist making it. Thank you Narelle.


I was happy that the background script stamp came out so well without using a Stamp-a-ma-jig! Looks pretty simple, but there sure are a lot of layers on this card. But that's what makes the card so striking.




I forgot to take a photo of the inside for this card, but it's nothing spectcular anyway.

By The Tide Using Bokeh

Wednesday, May 27, 2015

I recently ordered the stamp set "By The Tide" and am having a lot of fun making up a bunch of cards with it. I will be sharing these cards with you over the next few days. Some of them will be for a future class, and this card is one of them, so keep your eye out for the class posting if you'd like to learn how to use the Bokeh technique.


I decided not to place a sentiment on the front of the card, but can always be added if I change my mind. You should have seen my hands after completing it, and that was with trying to be careful!


And here is the inside of the card.


This is a great card to make for those of us that live by the ocean. When you live by the ocean, a card like this works for nearly every occasion! Looking forward to showing the others.

This is what I used -

My Open House & Paper Pumpkin Event

Sunday, May 24, 2015

I have been busy all last week getting ready for my Open House & Paper Pumpkin Event held yesterday. It was a very long day, but very enjoyable. It was great to meet some new people and share my love of creating!

This time I made some display boards using those science fair boards you can pick up at the dollar stores.


 This was my Paper Pumpkin display. Many enjoyed seeing what was all included in the kits for such a great price! I had some beautiful cards packaged in twos, with a bow and a lovely tag to give to all who signed up for the great Paper Pumpkin deal going on until June 10th. Still open for any that would like to try the convenience and fun of Paper Pumpkin!


This was my New Catalogue display. I showed the new In-Colours, had a couple of cards made with two of the colours, and two cards displaying the new Hostess stamp sets, as well as the bags and boxes I made with the new Gift Bag Punch Board.


And this was the Sign Up Display section. I look forward to the classes I will be teaching! Thank you to those that signed up! It was quite the task to plan a the classes through to end of September, but it feels good to have a plan to follow.


This was the table where I sat to answer questions, book classes and workshop parties, as well as the red table for the Paper Pumpkin Make & Takes.

Again, thank you to all those that stopped by!

Now to announce a couple of winners that could now stay for the draw.
  • Complete Paper Pumpkin Kit - Deborah Clark - Congrats!
  • A dozen Thank You cards in a box - Peta Ware - Congrats!
I'll email you to notify you of your win.

My next display will be the day I will be teaching three classes, on Saturday September 19th at this same location. I'll post more when we get closer to that date.

Happy stamping!

One Day Only!

Saturday, May 23, 2015


On June 2nd we can order from all three catalogues, the 2014 -2015 Annual, 2015 Occasions, and the new 2015 - 2016 Annual Catalogues, with whatever this past years pricing is, and get the current hostess benefits!!!! Isn't that wonderful?! One day only!




So if you place an online order on June 2nd that is $200 or more from any of these catalogues, you qualify for Hostess rewards from the new Catalogue! That will be a very busy day and will probably slow down the online system, so I'd get your order in as early as possible that day!

I'm introducing you to a new punch board, the Gift Bag Punch Board, which will be available in the new catalogue! I had so much fun experimenting making different sized gift bags.
