Hi there folks!  Way way back when Odd Bird Planet was in business, and I was on their Design Team, I created this Christmas card.  I’m a hoarder of cards because they are hard to part with.  I’m curious if you are too.

Since my granddaughter was 3 1/2, I started sending her cards, and now she’s almost 4.  I thought this card would make her laugh.  I’m having so much fun  sending her cards.  I always ask her about daycare.  Her mom, Sarah (and my daughter), took a video of her opening her card.  She was adimat that she was going to read it and this is what she said, “hello Grandma Beth.  Do you like your daycare.”  I got a chuckle out of that.  I wonder if she got a chuckle out of santa driving a train.

Have a great day!

Double Easel Calendar

Hi fellow stampers. Here we are in December and in the final countdown for getting those Christmas cards and Christmas projects done. It’s not too late to make cute projects for tucking into Christmas stockings, or other holiday presents.

This is the first year I have made calendars and had a lot of fun.  I purchased my calendars in August and spent three months picking away on 16 of these beauties using a variety of stamps.  My favourite, of course, was this one, and have it standing up beside my computer.  My co-workers loved my calendars and I sold a few.  Everyone said that this one was too Christmasy for them, but I don’t see just Christmas when I painted PearlEx in the Draped Ornaments.

Thank you for stopping by!

Rudolf Easel Card

Hello Dazzlers, Divas, and friends.

Today’s card is for the November Dueling Darlings group.  Shelly played host for this month’s Dazzler’s card kit, and Carol played host for the Divas.  What I terrific card kit from Shelly.  Thank you Shelly for this adorable, and generous, kit!!

The theme this month is, “Red Nose.”  I love dimensional cards, and thought that my kit would look nice on an Easel Card.

This is my last project with the Dueling Darlings because the group has become an American swap group only, and because I live in Canada I no longer am a member of the Team.  It was a fun time with the Team, as each new package was a new adventure.  Thanks to Kelly and Jeanette for running this group.


Kit Supplies included:

Images: CC Designs stamped using Memento Black Tuxedo ink on Recollections 110# cardstock

DP:Recollections- Buffalo Check

Doodlebug Designs-Wish list, Echo Park- red/green plaid

Masculine Christmas Card

Hello fellow stampers.  Technique Junkies just had a new release.  I love this stamp so much, particularly because it makes a great masculine Christmas card.  I know a few men who would love to receive this card.

If you have not ordered from the new release yet, there is still time to get up to 25% off of the November new release.  You can check out all the new stamps here.  My card uses Woodland Wonders and Santa Mail set of 2 (not a new release).  New release stamps are automatically discounted, and if you add my discount code TJ10Beth, an additional 10% is applied.

Steps to make this card

  1. Stamp Woodland Wonders onto plaid background with VersaMark and sprinkle white embossing powder and heat set.
  2. Your card is ready to be cut to size and decorated at this stage.  Cut newly created background to3 3/4″ x 5″.  If you have a die-cut like I have then this is the time to use it.
  3. Mat your Woodland Wonders background with black, cut to 4″ x 5 1/4″.
  4. Using black ink, stamp out Santa Mail Set of 2.  Cut the image with a circle punch or die cut.  Die cut some greenery.
  5. Place your Santa Mail Set of 2 on the left hand corner and add some greenery underneath. Using a pop dot for your circle really adds dimension.

Thanks for stopping by.  Get creative!

Technique Junkies November Release and Sale


It’s November 1st and Technique Junkies has another great release for you.  It has a little something for everyone, from Hanukkah to Christmas and Thanksgiving.  Here I am sharing the two-set stamp set called Happy Hanukkah set of 2.  My background was gold embossed using Judaica Background.

My card was heat embossed with gold on Almost Navy cardstock.

All of the November 2020 New Release stamps are 15% off through November 8th! We can all use a little bargain, right? No codes needed, just put them in your shopping cart and the discount will be applied at checkout.

We have New Stamps and stencils in the Technique Junkies line!  This month we are proud to offer 2 new Technique Junkies stencils, also!

Do you want 25% off your order?  Use the code above to receive an additional 10% off your entire new release discount.  Plus, 10% will be taken off of your other purchases.  Remember, we are not just a stamp company–there are plenty of products for that Junkie in you.  And the savings don’t stop there.  Gotta have it all?  Then check this out…



Canadian Thanksgiving is in October.  Even though there were just five of us for Thanksgiving dinner, I made cards for my family.  I had a lot of fun creating an autumn look.  Below is my process:

  • I stamped my background stamp, Modern Foilage (not a new release) because it is full of leaves.  Stamped onto Dusty Durango and matted on Rich Razzelberry
  • Die cut a leaf and sponged on Pumpkin Pie and Rich Razzelberry
  • Stamped Always Thankful onto white cardstock
  • Added borders of coordinating designer paper to the top and bottom of the sentiment.  TIP:  When needing a border as I did with the designer paper, trim two narrow pieces of cardstock/designer paper and glue them along top and bottom.  This saves a lot of paper than when you mat onto a big piece

Just loving the super deal with the Got to Have it All bundle.  For $99.99 you can have the entire November release for $99.99!

Let’s see what the rest of the Design Team has in store for you.

Dreaming of a White Christmas

Hello friends, and fellow stampers!

Everyone dreams of a white Christmas, don’t they?  Even I do.  But let me tell ya something folks!  Snow is romanticized in our heads and in movies.  People think there is something charming about snow.  Don’t forget about us having to shovel out our driveways at 6:00 in the morning just to get to work.  Heck, when I lived on Prince Edward Island, winters were “shoveling to get out in the morning” and “shoveling just to get back into the driveway after work.”

Young people love the snow.  I remember being in my 20’s and walking to church and saying hello to a lady as I entered the church.  I was feeling giddy with the pretty falling snow, and said to the lady leaving the church, “don’t you just love it?”  Her response was a clear “no.”  She added, “you won’t like it when you get to be my age.”  At that time I thought, “right.”  Well folks, I’m in my late 50’s and could do without snow for five months of the year.  I’d like to have snow for two months.

I’m no scrooge when it comes time for the Christmas holidays, and even I love to make cards with snow on them.  I love to romanticize while I’m creating Christmas cards, and I’m sure you do too.

I am so happy that Technique Junkies came out with some new Christmas sentiments.  I don’t have a large collection of Christmas sentiments so this Oh Christmas Treee, set of 4 fits the bill.

Thanks for stopping by.

Looking around for a fun technique?  I can help you out.  I have over 200 photo step-by-step videos and YouTube videos, right here on my blog

Oh Christmas Tree

Hello fellow stampers, and friends!  Yes, I managed to create a Clean and Simple card.  It was a happy accident because I struggle so very much with CAS designs.  I am envious of the artists who can pull it off time-and-time again.

Here I pulled out, for the first time, a lovely Christmas Tree and sentiment from Technique Junkies new Christmas sentiments release called Oh Christmas Tree, set of 4.

Would you believe I have started listening to Christmas music already?  Yup, I’m one of “Those” people.

Thanks for stopping by!

Don’t forget.  I have close to 200 tutorials that I did in photo step-by-step and videos.  Please find at the top of this page

Gnome for Christmas

Help, I’ve been invaded by these October gnomes in my studio. To be honest, these darling pinch-my-cheeks little fellas and gal are having a lot of fun with me.  Today I am showcasing a trio of tags to add that darling touch to my gifts, and even to wine bottles, handmade hot chocolate packages, etc.  Everyone loves a darling touch that says, “I love you.”  Gnome for Christmas, and gnome all year long as far as I’m concerned.

To bring these cute little fellas, and gal, home to you, use the above code for a 10% discount.  This discount applies to your entire shopping cart by-the-way.  Enjoy the close up photos below.

Happy Holidays!

Don’t forget to check out over 150 tutorials I made.  Links to photo and videos are at the top of my blog
