5th Annual Girls Only Stamping Weekend

Its that time again - this weekend I will be hosting my:
5th Annual Girls Only Stamping Weekend!!

Every year, for the past five years I have had a Girls Only Stamping Weekend at the cottage to thank my top 10 best customers and hostesses for the past year.

This year is no different. It is always an AMAZING time - full of such fun memories with lots of stamping, food and often too much alcohol! lol. No husbands (or significant others), no kids - just us girls!

Here are some pics from last night and today as I am up with my kids right now getting the cottage set up for the weekend of fun ahead!!

We have an amazing varandah with a fabulous view of the lake, our own private beach, a fantastic view and all the Stampin' Up! goodies you can imagine!

Without my loyal hostesses and customers - I wouldn't still be in business 5 years later. This is why each year I take the time to really treat the top 10 to something extra special - an invitation to the Girls Only Stamping Weekend! I hope those selected this year enjoy!!

Happy Stamping!

Stampin' Up! Daisies using the Big Shot

This afternoon I wanted to show you one of my new favourite things to
do with my Stampin' Up! Big Shot:
Make BEAUTIFUL daisy flowers!!

This one is made with the new 2009-2010 In Colours Melon Mambo with a little bit of the Crushed Curry in the middle.

I made this using the Daisies Flower #2 Bigz Die for the Stampin' Up! Big Shot.

I recently been asked - do our Stampin' Up! dies work in the Cuttlebug? Yes they do!!

Here is a close up pic of the flower as well as a pic of the Die I used.

Item 114520 - Daisies Flower #2 Bigz Die $26.95.
Hope you like it as much as I do!
I look forward to making many more of these, in many different colours!

Happy Stamping!

Get Well Soon Card using the Big Shot

Good Morning!

I am playing around with some of the new Stampin' Up! in colours and the Stampin' Up! Big Shot this week. I have over 100 cards that I need to make for a lady in Alberta and want to get it just right. Her request - simplicity is the key.

The card above was made with:
Thoughts and Prayers Stamp Set (Item 113252 $34.95)
Crushed Curry cardstock and classic ink
Soft Suede cardstock and classic ink

Normally I would sponge the background...but this time I pulled out the stipple brush. I really like its effect too!

I used the Top Notes Die and the Distressed background Die in the Big Shot. Can you see the crushed curry cardstock has texture on it? I'm not sure if it shows in my pic or not. Anyhow, its feels and looks really neat!

Here is a pic of the full Thoughts and Prayers Stamp Set....
Later today I'll post pics of where myAnnual Girls Only Stamping Retreat will be.

Happy Stamping!

Stampin' Up! Lots of Bolts

Hello Again,

Before I head to Ottawa I wanted to post the Lots of Bolts card I made for my son.

As a Stampin' Up! Demo we were allowed to pre-order a few of the *new* stamp sets, cardstock and accessories from the 2009-2010 Idea Book & Catalog. I wasn't going to order this one, but my son Palmar insisted I do. He got upset saying that he doesn't own a stamp set and his sister and I own so many! When he's right, he's right!

So Palmar this one's for you! Hope you don't mind that Mommy borrowed your set!

Above is a close up of the robot. Not sure if you can tell from the pic or not, but I used the new In Colour markers to ink him up and stamp him, then coloured him in using my blender pen and a bit of the ink from the ink pads.

The Stampin' Up! 2009-2010 In Colours used on this card:
Soft Suede
Dusty Durango
Rich Razzleberry
Crushed Cherry

Here is the full Stampin' Up! Lots of Bolts stamp set Palmar is the proud owner of :

I'll check in tomorrow to let you know the new Deal of the Week!

Happy Stamping!

Here is a close up of the saying I used...sorry about the lighting.

Here is the full stamp set...

I'll post pics of the Lots of Bolts Card I made for my son in a few minutes... Enjoy!

Just for You

Good Afternoon!

Well as promised here are some pics of the cards I made last night. I mounted my Fifth Avenue Floral Stamp Set (one of my new favourites!!!), Oval All stamp set and of course opened up the new Stampin' Up! In Colours and started creating. I used the Melon Mambo and Bermuda Bay In Colours - notice that I used the textured cardstock and coodinating polkadot grosgrain ribbon! LOVE IT!!!

The first one I liked it while I was making it - textured cardstock, new ribbons, in colours.. but then when I came back to it, I thought - wow that is way too busy for my taste! Here it is....

So then I made it simpler...and you know what? I like it a lot more!

Then I was thinking...hmmm...what if we switch the colours a bit? So I switched to the Melon Mambo base. I think I like this one a lot more...

What do you think?

Happy Stamping!

In Colours for 2009-2010

Their names (from top left to bottom right):
  • Rich Razzleberry
  • Soft Suede

  • Crushed Cherry
  • Bermuda Bay

As you can see, I also bought the matching ribbon and markers! Yes they have come out with In Colour markers - saving me the trouble of having to make them myself with blender pens and reinkers! Woohoo!
I will post pics from yesterdays late night creations this afternoon....

Happy Stamping!
