Stampn Up Saturday – Tasty Trucks

The moment I saw this card I knew I had to CASE it and following the directions so generously supplied.  I’m always looking for unique cards to make my family and friends.  This one has an acetate window that I stamped Congratulations on it as this card is made for my daughter and son-in-laws wedding anniversary.

Why an ice cream truck you ask?  Well, they had a green ice cream truck waiting for us on the hot August wedding when we came out of the church.  Free ice cream for everyone.

I’m sure they are going to wonder if they will receive a card, other than an ice cream truck, for their anniversary, but I like the reminder of the fun we had.

At 2:00 this afternoon Al and I will be married outdoors in Niagara Falls, nestled in the woods with a small wooden chapel. Photos to follow.

Thanks for stopping by.

Stampn Up Saturday – Feathery Friends RAK

One of the stamp sets I wanted so, so bad was a hostess set and I never had a party.  I just attend them.  Well, my on-line friend Tina Zinck,of The Serene Stamper, who is an independent Stampn Up Demonstrator, gifted me with this stamp set, along with a card she made in this Eclipse video.  I am so blessed to have such a dear on-line friend.  The cool thing is she is Canadian, like me.  So if you’re looking for a demonstrator I would recommend using Tina.

This is the card I made using this stamp set, and I made five of these cards. and two similar thank you ones.

Thanks for stopping by

Stampn’ Up! Saturday, Lighthearted Leaves

Hello folks!  I had so much fun colouring my two cards using Stampn’ Up!s Lighthearted Leaves.  I used Copic markers to colour this time.  I used Technique Junkie Newsletters Modern Grid technique from April 2007.  I remember working on that technique for the newsletter and oh my how the time flies–it seems like yesterday Pat introduced us to this technique.  You can click on the highlighted words above to be taken to the technique.

Thanks for stopping by!

It’s a beautiful day

Hello fellow stampers and card makers.  Today I have a card to share with you that I made at a recent Stampn’ Up! cardmaking class.  I love the beautiful designer paper and how nice the sentiment coordinates.

Because I didn’t write down what products were used, I can’t tell you what they are.  So sorry.

Enjoy your weekend.

Stampn’ Up! Saturday – Baby Bear

*SCS Weekly Favorite

Hi folks.  Are you in love with this Baby Bear stamp set as much as I am?  I paired it with Technique Junkies Love Harlequin background stamp that you can get for 10% off just by using my code TJ10Beth.  I like this card so much that I plan to make ten more of them.  The girls at work are always after me for cards.

I made this card for my granddaughter’s first birthday.  She isn’t walking quite yet, and threw away her smash cupcake. She was not impressed with it at all.  Here are some photos of my children with Charlotte.

 

Proud mama, Sarah, with Charlotte.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great weekend.

Stampn’ Up! Saturday – Happy Birthday

Hello folks!  I had so much fun making 11 of these cards, using Tree Rings and Painted Harvest.

I used my Misti to stamp out my Tree Rings twice to give it a nice dark appearance.  Next, I stamped my sunflower, first in Distress Ink “Mustard Seed” followed by “Spiced Marmalade.” My SU pads are pretty dry because I’ve had them for years, so I put in an order for many ink refills.  I am so anxious to get them in my hot little hands.

My leaves were stamped out in Green Galore then over top with Hunter Green.  The centre of the sunflower was stamped out with brown Memento.

My background and sentiment was stamped out in brown Memento.  My Happy Birthday is from Technique Junkies.  You can order Happy Birthday 3, or any other product that is not a new release for 10% off by using my code TJ10Beth.

Be Unique

I’m playing in some challenges this week and one of them uses Brushos/Color Bursts.  My background turned out muddy and looks like Northern Lights.  I couldn’t figure out what to do with the Northern Lights as the surface is bumpy from adding embossing powder so I added some Stampn’ Up! leaves coloured with Copic markers.

My sentiment, Cherish what makes you UNIQUE comes from Technique Junkies Things I want to do set.  You can receive 10% off this sentiment set, or any other product at 10% off simply by using my code TJ10Beth.

Here is the video I was directed to.  It’s called Color Explosion.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by!

Hey, Chick

Happy Stampn’ Up! Saturday.  Brrr, baby it’s cold outside.  This is a good weekend to create cards for your stash for the New Year.  I just love Stampn’ Up’s Hey, Chick stamp set.  If you look closely you will see that I created a door by using Technique Junkie’s Wood stamp, which you can purchase at 10% off, along with any other item that isn’t a new release.  All you have to do is use my code TJ10Beth and your discount will be applied to any product your purchase.

To create my door, I placed my stamp in my Misti and stamped out the Wood until it was nice and crisp.  I used black ink on my stamp and stamped onto Kraft paper.  If you look closely, you will see brads on each of the four corners to represent nails.  And looking closely, once again, you will notice a criss cross shape in the centre of the door.

Stay warm and happy stamping!
