You are not seeing things - many of these products today are NEW! Just two more sleeps and the new 2016-2017 Stampin' Up!© Annual Catalogue will be here! As a demonstrator we get sneak peek privileges and get to pre-order products (plus we get a discount)! psst - you should totally be a demonstrator and join my team!

My card today is for the Global Design Project Challenge #GDP038. Can you spot the new products?? 


The new colors used are FLIRTY FLAMINGO & DAPPER DENIM. They are a great mix with MINT MACARON & GOLD FOIL SHEETS.

This new stamp set is called LOVE & AFFECTION. It is from the Affectionately Yours Suite and pairs perfectly (of course) with the FLORAL AFFECTION TEXTURED IMPRESSIONS EMBOSSING FOLDER. You are going to love this suite ... just wait until you see the matching Designer Series Paper and Washi Tape that go with it!

You will be able to see the new products online June 1st here.

i heart mercedes weber - #TGIFC57


I can NOT believe that it is the end of May! The last week of each month the TGIF Challenge is "pick your favorites". I chose to CASE the designer - Mercedes Weber. A quick scroll through her blog and you will love everything that she creates. This card caught my eye and I had to put a Krista touch to it ... 


And here is my creation ... 


The BANNER PUNCH is sadly retiring from the Stampin' Up! catalogue on May 31, 2016. Get it now while supplies last for $11.20 (CAD). You can shop online 24/7. See the complete Stampin' Up! retired list here.

This TGIF Challenge is so open to interpretation. It gives you so much creative freedom to find inspiration. Come play along with the team!

I'm bringing thank-you's back - Fancy Friday Blog Hop (May)

 

Hello my Fancy friends! Are you ready for the May Fancy Friday blog hop?! Our theme this month is "Thank You". Since January I have made it my mission to send Birthday Cards in the mail to my friends and family. Shannon West from the Stampin' Up!© home office started the #imbringingbirthdaysback campaign. Demonstrators and crafters all over the world have jumped on board to send happy mail to those that they love.

The Fancy Friday team thought we should also #imbriningthankyousback! 



There are so many people that I should be sending thank-you cards too. We have wonderful friends and family who love and support us and I can never show them enough gratitude. This special card will go to my neighbor. She will be watering my flowers when we are away in Europe this spring. I love gardening and spending time in my yard. This is a very important job and I am so grateful that she is doing this for me! I hope that this beautiful card means more to her than a shot glass from Barcelona!

Next on the blog hop is Connie Collins.
 
Do you send thank-you cards or birthday cards? Join the fun and start sending some! It feels so wonderful when you get messages from people telling you that you made their day!!

The Fancy Friday team will be back on June 24th. Come back and visit!
Have a creative day,

A color combo for little boys - GDP037


Happy Holiday Monday my Canadian friends! I hope that you have had a great May long weekend! The Global Design Project challenge this week is this beautiful color combo ... 
When I saw the combo I instantly thought that it was perfect for a baby boy. The Artisan Design Team received the MADE WITH LOVE Stamp Set recently and it was perfect! 




I don't think that I know anyone that has had a baby boy recently so I will have to stash this one for later. The Global Design Project would love it if you played along. It is easy to do ... visit the GDP, create and share on social media using #GDP037 (visit the GDP for full details).

Have a creative day!

Beep beep! - GDP036


The Global Design Project is CASEing the tallented Paula Dobison. I love how Paula always colors and sponges on her cards and that is what inspired my card today.


Now, I know that this looks nothing like the inspiration sketch for the challenge, but like I said, I was trying to capture some of her style ... coloring, sponging and bright colors. I sponged the background with the HAPPY PATTERNS DECORATIVE MASKS and a SPONGE DAUBER. The car is stamped on a piece of  WHISPER WHITE CARDSTOCK, colored and fussy cut out. (No Big Shot die for this one!).

If you are coloring, you NEED Whisper White Cardstock from Stampin' Up!©. It is a beautiful bright white and is smooth and perfect for coloring. You will feel the difference from other white cardstock! Trust me! 


I created a few cards with this design. On this one I added the luggage on the roof. Super cute, right?! This set has 21 stamps in it and has many little accessories for this car. You will only be able to puchase this stamp set until May 31, 2106. Get yours today at my Canadian Online Store before they are gone (while supplies last).
