Stamp a stack

Have you attended one of my stamp a stacks? Ever wondered what they are about and what you do there?

This video show 3 cards made in a stamp a stack using the fabulous set Balloon Celebrations.

A stamp a stack is a class where uou make, generally, 12 cards. 3 different designs. 4 cards of each design. It’s a great way to build up your supply of cards.

ESAD 2017 Holiday catalogue blog hop

You’ve arrived from Megan Lenske.

Christmas supplies have always been my weakness. I normally buy so many papers and embellishments and stamps. Do you just go all crazy for Christmas supplies too?

There was one set that completely captivated me in the holiday catalogue. With a ballet loving 10 year old how could I pass up Suagrplum Dreams? I mean it’s not just a Christmas set. Check out Jessica’s 10th birthday card.

A very simple card using only 2 colours, Powder Pink and Berry Burst. I love the tone on tone stamping for the background and the cardstock strip across the card. The strip is simply using the flower and leaves from Number of Years. The only thing that was tricky with this card was fussy cutting the ballerina. I think totally worth it for the effect it has.

Every year I create a December Daily type Christmas album and I love to look over how our Christmases have changed over the years so I am very pleased with the inclusion of the Merry Little Christmas Memories and More this year. It looks great and so easy to use. Be sure to check back in October after my retreat to see how I’ve started the album ready for assembly in December.

Happy birthday card

There are times when you just need to quickly whip up a card. In these cases simple is best. 

Totally the easiest card with only a base (14.8cm x 10.5cm) of co-coordinating cardstock and a layer of whisper white (13.8cm x 9.5cm).

Quickly stamped using in-colours because I know they co-ordinate.

Of course you have to start with the lightest colour top and bottom with the darker of the top in the middle.  

Add a few diamontes and you have a stunning but effective card in a few minutes.

Card in a box class

These cards were created last year, for a class I ran last year. Laziness has prevented me from posting these pictures but here they finally are. This wasn’t quite a stamp-a-stack class. Participants made 10 cards, two of each card (although the 5th card is missing because I’ve already sent it).

This is such a simple card. I love, love, love stampsets with matching punches or dies. Petitie petal stamp and punch and the wonderous wreath stampset and dies made this card so easy to create.

2015-03-03 card box class 007

I think this is one of my favourite cards in a long time. It is so simple and so stunning. Again the matching stampset and punch make this card so effective. Three flower stamp sets and three matching punches, flower shop,

Just an interesting way to use the Wetlands stampset.

Embellished events is the perfect stamp set for any occasion. It has a sentiment and image for every occasion.
