Star Of Light

Happy wet and snowy Thursday :D

This is one of the class projects showcasing the beautiful 'Star of Light' bundle from SU!

I was inspired by a card I saw by Kathy MacKay (thanks Kathy for the inspiration!).

I've used Dapper Denim, Gold and Delightful Dijon as my colour palette. 
The DSP is from the paper pack 'Presents & Pinecones'.

Thanks for taking a peek! :D

Halloween Scares

Happy Sunday :D

Can you guess the theme for my next class? ;D

Not having grown up here in Canada, I don't usually run a Halloween class but the stamp sets and thinlits in the Occasions catalogue are just too cool not to!

I saw a card on Pinterest made by Mary Brown (thanks for the inspiration Mary!) using the new Halloween DSP which I don't have. I have the stamp set though so set about casing it.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek  :D

'Jar Of Love' Sweetness

Happy Tuesday :D

Next weeks class is three projects made using the versatile new set 'Jar Of Love'.

This stamp set comes with so many possibilities that it was hard to just make three. Of course going on Pinterest for ideas just made it worse! Lol

Farewell 'Swallowtail'

Happy Thursday :D

Monochromatic cards are so simple but I find them striking.

A Fond Farewell

Happy Saturday :D

With the soon to be released new annual catalogue from Stampin' Up! there also comes the retired list.

As a last hurrah my classes for the month of May are fond farewells to say goodbye to some sets I love!

The first of these classes is to farewell 'Summer Silhouettes'. This set had been on my wish list for the longest time and I only recently purchased it. It definitely had to be inked up before it retired!

A Room With A View

Happy Wednesday :)

I didn't have the next class projects ready for last weeks class so this is a surprise for everyone. I did tell them that the class theme was the window framelit though ;)

With Heartfelt Sympathy

Happy Monday :D

Here's project #2 for this weeks sympathy card class.
I was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest by Dawn Olchefske (thanks for the inspiration Dawn!). 

I really like this card which is strange for me because I have never been fond of Calla lilies!

Growing up these flowers were synonymous with funerals and I think that's why I never took to them. It's funny how things stick  lol.

I love the simplicity of this card with its clean lines and strong image.
The piece of ribbon and bow add just the right amount of softness  that makes it appropriate for a sympathy card don't you think? ☺️

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek :)

Fry Box Favours

Happy Monday ☺️

One of my DD's had a birthday party this past weekend and I was given the job of making favour boxes!

There were two requirements. They had to be the Stampin' Up! Fry box, and they had to be blue.

What do you think? 
Cute blue fry boxes?
I think so! :D

Love and Sympathy

Happy Friday ☺️

Today I want to share a card I created for my upcoming sympathy card class.

I've used the Bloomin' Heart thinlit to create the centrepiece. I like that you can use it for other occasions than romance.

Woodland Birthday Wishes

Happy Monday ☺️

This weeks classes are masculine cards.
I try and do a couple of classes a year specifically for masculine cards. I don't know about you but I always have trouble coming up with cards for men lol.

This card is cased from one I saw by Sandi MacIver. Thank you for the inspiration Sandi! :D

I've used 'Vintage Leaves' and their coordinating framelits to carry on the woodland theme that the embossing folder brings.

I really love this card. It's clean and straightforward but also elegant.
It's also another contribution to:

Frog Prince

Happy Wednesday ... Ribbit  :)

Whether you have a frog or a prince in your life this Valentines card has you covered! ;)

I've used the cute new SU! bundle 'Playful Pals' to make the frog and the sentiment is from 'Petite Pairs'. 
The "waves" on the card base are made using  the squiggly line stamp in the 'Starburst Sayings' set.

Thanks for stopping by ... Ribbit ... And for taking a peek!

Beautiful 'Bloomin' Heart'

Happy Tuesday :)

Today I wanted to share one of the projects for my upcoming Valentines class. 

This card is a case of one I saw on Pinterest by Stacy Lane (thanks Stacy for the inspiration!).

I've used Crumb Cake and Blushing Bride to give the card a softer feel. 

I lined a Crumb Cake envelope with a liner cut from the sweet 'Love Blossoms' DSP stack to add a little extra something.

The background piece and bird wing are stamped with the retired 'Lovely Lace' stamp.

'Going Global' for Valentines

Happy Tuesday ☺️

Today I'm sharing another Valentines card. 
This one was inspired by one I saw by Vicky Hayes (thanks for the inspiration Vicky!).

The sentiment is from the fun new stamp set 'Going Global' from SU! and the globe image is from 'Open Sea'. 

You could use the globe image included the 'Going Global' set but I wanted a more realistic image for my card.

Thanks for stopping by! ☺️

'Bear Hugs'

Happy Monday ☺️

Today's card is using the cute new bundle from SU! called 'Bear Hugs'.

I kept the card pretty straight forward.
