Labels to Love!

Posted on

Admittedly, on wanting to get an early head-start on my Christmas cards this year, I was going to dedicate this month to Christmas in July. This then had me wondering about other uses for these stamp sets that tend to sit idly for a good part of the year.

And although I’m still making Christmas cards, I’m also now looking at how to create cards for other occasions with what is at first glance Christmas sets.

The first of my challenges is with the Labels to Love Stamp Set (page 103 2018-2019 Annual Catalog) with the matching Everyday Label (page 211 2018-2019 Annual Catalog).

The Labels to Love Stamp Set lends itself most obviously to tags but has many possibilities for beautiful simple Christmas cards as well. One thing at a time though so more about that later!

Happy belated Canada Day and Happy Independence Day – hope you’re enjoying the beginning of the summer here in the Northern Hemisphere!

Daisy Delight!

Posted on

It has taken me so long to get to the Daisy Delight Stamp Set and co-ordinating Daisy Punch that I’m embarrassed to say how long these two cards took me. Suffice to say, it was a LONG time!

There are 16 photopolymer stamps in this stamp set that allow for a lot of creativity… once both your imagination and creativity kicks in!

Pretty Pink (Freshly Made Sketches #301)

Posted on

My good intentions for completing one or two cards during the week, at my leisure, are once again out the window as here it is Sunday afternoon with the clock ticking. Therefore without further ado, this is my card.

And this is the original 301 sketch from Freshly Made Sketches. As you can see, I rotated my card to stand upright. Landscape just wasn’t working for me today.

Isn’t the pink foil on kraft cardstock just the nicest? It’s a fabulous DSP package that’s available in the current annual catalog from Stampin’ Up!

Remember, you can always order from me if you’d like to add some to your stash… I’m only to happy to help!😆

Halloween Wondrous Wreath

Posted on

The Wondrous Wreath Stamp Set  (135047 – $31.95) on page 9 of the Holiday Catalog has had to be one of my most “go to” stamp sets for this season. Hence it was my first choice to use in a workshop a few weeks.

The hostess had requested we make a Christmas Card but I really wanted to highlight other occasions you could utilize these stamps.

JIF - Wreath - Halloween

Making this Halloween Card I was reminded how this bird’s appearance could be altered so quickly merely by the placement of its wing. If the wing tip is placed up it makes the bird look cute. Where as placing the tip down and moving the larger part of the wing up, gives the bird a more sinister, Halloween appearance don’t you think?

A quick reminder the last order I’ll be placing for the year to ensure deliveries before Christmas will be taking place this evening should you wanted to add an order. HOWEVER , 24 Hour shopping is still available from my website!

Oh, and have yourself an... Inkee Fiddling Day!
