More downline samples!

I couldn't wait to share these with you so I'm posting them Tuesday instead!

This colour combo is one I'm going to use for sure! Flirty Flamingo, Mint Macaron and So Saffron.  And look at those amazing 3D flowers make with one of our flower punches.  Beautiful!

Created by Velma
And this one by Shelley is just stunning.  Peekaboo Peach, Emerald Envy, possibly Watermelon Wonder? Or maybe Calypso Coral. Not sure but try both and see if you can create your own wonderful creation! I just love the flowers on this one!

I have a new WOW class to announce tomorrow so be sure to check back. June already, that is crazy!

Downline - Stamp and Share!

This weekend was  my Stamp and Share and I just LOVED the cards they all brought for this month's Creative Challenge so I just had to share!

This month I sent each participant a colour challenge with the one of the new In Color's and some new Ruched ribbon.  

Check out the cards from Bev and Deborah. They used Dapper Denim, Soft Sky and Wisteria Wonder.  Aren't they incredible!

Created by Bev - love the Botanical Blooms with the shimmer

Created by Deborah - Love the variety of flowers on this wreath!
Here are some incredible samples from Krista. She had a challenging color combo one with Emerald Envy, Watermelon Wonder and Daffodil Delight, but WOW!

Created by Krista - love they way she combined both of the dies in this Swirly Scribbles framelits set

And this one is too cute for words!

I have such amazing team members and glad they took time from their sunny weekend to come stamp with me.

More samples to come on Wednesday!

Meet the In Colors Birthday card

Oops, sorry this post is a bit late but a late night band concert interrupted my evening and I forgot to post this.

This weekend is my downline Stamp and Share and I can't wait to make these fun In Color sample sheets with my team. We get together once a month to create, chat about Stampin UP and eat some goodies too!  It's great fun!

 Hopefully we will have time to make this fun In Color card.  I received one very similar to this in a swap with last year's In Colors.

I used the Festive Flower builder punch for the flames, White baker's twine for the wicks and a few new goodies too.

Wonderful swaps from wonderful friends

Hope you have had a great weekend! We had some great family time including Captain America, game night and a family dinner.  Those are the best weekends :)

I received some great cards from some fellow demonstrators across Canada. Each month we send each other cards and it's nice to get happy mail in amongst the junk mail. Plus it's a great way to get card samples with stamp sets I don't have.

This beautiful card was created by Alison S with

Jenn T created this sparkly sample with Going Global.

Karen D made this incredible card with Wetlands.

Lisa A made this fantastic card with Watercolour Wings.

And here is mine with the background stamp
Hope you enjoyed these fun cards.  I'm excited for the end of the month and my mailbox to be full of more cards again!

Happy "wet' May long weekend!

Despite the weather I think we can all say we are happy it's finally raining in Alberta!

This week has been a mixed bag of stamping and computer work but I am happy to say STAMPING has taken over my desk! I won't share the next WOW projects yet but suffice it to say they are pretty darn cool!

Here is a sneak peek at the new In Colors in the catalogue. I had a chance to use them this week and Dapper Denim and Sweet Sugarplum are pretty amazing. I'll admit the Emerald Envy was a little hard to match with other colours but I think after I see some more colour combos it will be equally as amazing.
Thanks to Lisa A for this great photo

 I am participating in a swap with some fellow Canadian demonstrators and I was lucky enough to receive this one from Allison O, in my downline.  She had a "pre-preview" of some of the products due to her Artisan design team status :) I received this card in April and I love the way the new In colors look together.

 Next week I'll share some other amazing cards from my demonstrator friends and maybe a sneak peek or two at some other goodies.

The one that didn't make the cut ...

It was pretty hard to make cards for this month's Coffee, Cookies and Card class because I lost my mojo.  My stamping mojo!

It happens from time to time and I know it will eventually come back. It just doesn't always come back when you want it to.

So here is one of the cards that didn't make the cut for the class.  I love the colours but was struggling with the design.

 This might be a card in an upcoming class but unfortunately not this one.  What do you think?

Thanks for checking in! Wish me some more stamping mojo to come my way!

Coffee, Cookies and Cards - May 31st

Hi all

Sorry I haven't been blogging in FOREVER! But for many reasons I haven't been stamping a ton. I hope to get back to stamping and blogging a few times a week at least.  I'd like to say I'm back to 5 days a week but I don't want to disappoint so watch for posts Mon, Wed and Friday for sure!

I have had a few questions regarding a WOW class for May but I opted not have one this month but I will be creating my June one soon.

But there will be a Coffee, Cookies and Cards class on May 31st and here are the samples.

Each of these cards use the new Swirly Scribbles framelits and the Swirly Bird stamp set. This will be available for purchase on June 1st so this is a great sneak peek at the products and new In Colors.

Join me for this fun class.  Cost is just $15 or free with a qualifying order.

Contact me today.
