Elegant Wedding Card

Hello fellow stampers and friends!  Today Al and I are celebrating our 4th anniversary.  I hit the nail on the head with one of his presents which I told him is to be used at the trailer, before he opened it up.  He laughed so hard when he saw what the mug said:  “I’d rather be on my boat.”  You see, Al much prefers being out on the water with his boat, while I much prefer the trailer.  LOL.

One of my girlfriends asked me to make a wedding card and this is what I made using Gina K, Holiday Tapestry.  The tapestry design was embossed with two Wow embossing powders:  Sea Mist and Capri.  Isn’t the shimmer so pretty?

Have a super day!

With Sympathy


Hello folks!  I hope you all had a nice weekend!  It sure was hot wasn’t it!?  Last week I was on vacation, rather a staycation.  Being home allowed me to get a great start on 45 Christmas cards.  Yes, you read right–45 cards.  Normally I go with different designs but this year I want to keep it easy as I do love repetition while making cards.  I will need to make more since I do give out a lot of Christmas cards every year.

I was in need of a sympathy card so I made five of these sympathy cards.

My clouds were made with A Colorful Life Design cloud stencil.  I used this stencil a little different by using the outer piece of the stencil and I loved the results.  The stamps I used are from Stampin’ Up! and are from the High Tide set.  I’m sorry–I don’t remember what Stampin’ Up! set “With Sympathy” came from.

Have a terrific week!

Mr. & Mrs. Wedding Day

Hi friends!  How is your week going?  Al and I are on vacation this week and the weather couldn’t be any better.  While he’s out boating with family, I’m in the air conditioning stamping all day.  I haven’t stamp for a full day in months.  I plan to catch up on my blog reading and comments this week as well.

Yesterday I went to my girlfriend’s house where we spent hours playing with the gelli plate and leaves.  I’m going to show those to you in another post.

My girlfriend really wanted blue flowers for her wedding, but the only thing available to her were flowers that could be dyed blue, and that would get pretty messy.  So, I came to the rescue with blue flowers on her wedding day.  LOL.

My friends got married over the weekend, and this is the card I gave them.  I love the fun of layering colours.  Tim Holtz’s colorize dies are my go to at the moment.  I heat embossed Mr. & Mrs. in gold, and did the same for the sentiment on the inside, and my “made by Beth” stamp on the back.

I hope you are having a nice week.

Thanks for stopping by.

Stay tuned for my newest You Tube video, currently being edited

Hello friends.  I’m back after a month of a lack of posts, and I’m so happy that you are still here.  I still don’t have my groove back since stepping down from my Design Team work.  It’s like I’m lost.

Today I’m sharing a cute card that I made for a co-worker who received a nice promotion.  These stamps could not be any more perfect.  As an inside joke we call each other “peer.”.  Well, my peer went to a winery where there were llamas to walk, and she participated.  Peer and I thought this was a hoot and have made so many jokes about it.  And boy, if I didn’t find a large llama face in a magazine a week after her escapade.  I had the llama face laminated and made a calendar stand for it and enclosed it with my card, so she can remember our jokes in her new job.

Yes, I’m a little goofy and fun.  Even a bit eccentric, but that’s what keeps me so happy both at work and at home.

Card Details

  • Stamps were from the Dollar Tree
  • Images coloured with Copic markers and fussy cut
  • Banners are cut from the “shaving cream” technique
  • Background paper, Stampin’ Up!

Thanks for popping by.  See you soon!

Happy 5th Birthday Charlotte

Hi folks!

Aside from mixed media and techniques, I do love my Lawn Fawn stamps for their whimsy.  Let’s face it, Lawn Fawn is just plain cute.  This card went to my Granddaughter who turned 5.

I had alot of enjoyment using my Lawn Fawn cloud stencil and using such fun colours for the clouds.  You can get away with that with unicorns, eh!  The ice cream cone and the piece of cake are separate little pieces.  As I have said before; I love working with small places.  Whose cute little images do you like to work with?

Thanks for stopping by.

Hello fellow stampers!  This was made as a get well card for a very dear friend who had a major car accident.

I’ve used Tina Zinck’s background technique again, and just can’t get enough of it.  Look how beautiful SU’s Stampin’ Blends worked.  Copic markers also work.  I’ve had other friend’s that tried different markers and had success, so give it a try.  Tina’s video can be seen here.

Happy Birthday Emma!

Hi fellow stampers!  Today I have a fun fold for you.  I made this card for my granddaughter who just turned 1.  What’s better than cupcakes no matter what age you are.  I’m a sucker for them.

My daughter is a Martha Stewart in the making.  She always surprises me with the things she makes and does with her husband and her two very young children.  By the way, she’s an outstanding cook too.  Anyways, we were asked that for Emma’s first birthday we enclose a letter to her which will be presented to Emma on her 16th birthday.  Isn’t that cool?  I don’t remember what I did write for Charlotte’s first birthday, but this time I wrote a note on world events and about myself.  It may seem vane to write about oneself, but I think it’s important that grandchildren know about us.  Grandparents are special in their lives.


A little hidden flap to add an extra “I love you.”

And this is the inside.

Stampin Blend Vellum Technique with Gold Texture

One of my favourite bloggers lives right here in Canada’s east coast.  Her name is Tina Zinck and has a very successful Stampin’ Up! business.  I always look forward to watching her tutorials.

This particular card uses Tina’s background technique called Stampin Blend Vellum Technique with Gold Texture.  The results are stunning.

Today a stamping forum I belong to is having a Fest where challenges are posted and participants have a chance to win prizes.  Tina’s technique is what I picked out for my challenge.  If you didn’t click to see the video above, you can see it here.

My cards are for Mother’s Day, which I’m taking to work to sell.  These cards are mini slimline size.  They have been gold embossed on the outside and inside where it says “Happy Mother’s Day.”
