  • Trim a layer of very vanilla to 4 x 5.25
  • Using your Big Shot with the Star Framelits
    • die cut 2 smallest stars in so saffron
    • die cut 1 second smallest star in so saffron
  • Sponge edges of star with daffodil delight ink using a dauber
  • From champagne glimmer paper punch out medium circle and tiny circle using the Owl punch
  • With the gold taffeta ribbon, tie a small bow & adhere to largest star
  • With the Linen thread, tie two small bows and adhere to smallest stars
  • Cut piece of linen thread, and thread through top point of largest star
  • Pierce a hole in your card just below the top of your vanilla layer and thread star through
  • Pop up largest star using dimensionals and adhere down to vanilla layer
  • Adhere down both small stars with bows attached using tombow or snail
  • Adhere random circles punched from the glimmer paper to fill up space and balance out your project
  • Using the journaling pens from Project Life – add stitch lines around edge of vanilla layer
    * TIP * I used a piece of scrap paper trimmed to 3.75 x 5 to help me keep my stitch lines straight

Vancouver Area Card Making Workshop: Birthday Bash!

Phewf! It’s been a little while since I have been able to post an update for you all!  A lot has changed for me, and I am now back in British Columbia in New Westminster.  Now that my craft room is all unpacked I am finally able to hold card making workshops again.  (YAY!)

The first class I did was a huge success so I hope that some of you will be able to join me for my second workshop in New Westminster. The theme for this card making workshop is “Birthday Bash”. Birthdays happen all throughout the year – so be prepared for them! This workshop will feature 3 cards: one feminine, one masculine and one junior (child / tween) card.

All the materials you need will be provided to make each card, all you will need to bring with you is basic supplies like Tombow or snail, pop dots / dimensionals and fine pointed scissors along with any other tools you find useful when crafting! I provide the project kits, complete with all materials and pre-cut card stock; all you need to do is learn the fun techniques and assemble the projects!

Easter Bunny Treat Box with FREE Tutorial!

Hi Stampers!  I recently attended a team event where my sideline Karine showed us this Bunny box as the make & take.  I had seen Tami White’s version on her youtube channel and loved Karine’s modifications to the design, so I thought I would pass it along to you as well. These bunnies are super adorable and could be used for any occasion, not just Easter!  I have also seen this bunny created in brown (Stampin Up’s Chocolate Chip) which was also super stinkin cute.

 

Here are the projects I made:

Stampin Up’s Good As Gold Card Kit Avon Lip Balm box

When I saw this project by Sam McDonald of Pootles UK, I just HAD to make it!! I was smitten with the Sale-A-Bration Good As Gold card kit as soon as I saw it, and when I saw Sam’s brilliant little box, I knew I had to make one too!

Here is the project I made using the Good As Gold card kit:

I loved the box so much, that I decided to make another one using Stampin Up card stock and the Sale-A-Bration DSP (designer series paper). I love Avon lip balm – it’s a great price, and there is always so many different designs and flavors available, I thought they would be perfect for this project  Here is my modified project using Sam’s tutorial:

Stampin Up: Speech Bubble Dies & Retro Fresh Washi

Hiya Stampers,

Just a quick post today to share a card I made for Eric’s Grandmother who spoiled us with cake & presents on our most recent visit.  I love spending time with family  ❤

They have a budgie bird named Pom Pom, so I wanted to incorporate a bird in the card somehow… He is bright colors so I wanted to make sure the card reflected that as well.

Here is what I came up with:

Stampin Up  retro fresh washi tape Merci / Thank You card by Montreal Demonstrator Wendie Bee

Stampin Up retro fresh washi tape Merci / Thank You card by Montreal Demonstrator Wendie Bee

Stampin Up’s retro fresh washi tape made this card ridiculously easy & quick to make on the fly (last minute).  The only cutting of paper was the card base and first layer… the tape I just pulled off a piece and layered each design onto the card.  I used markers to clor the toucan bird, and fussy cut him out and adhering him using dimensionals

Here’s a really neat trick:  Here is how I created a layered effect for the speech bubble :

  1. Die cut bottom layer of speech bubble in solid colored card stock.
  2. Using the same die, I placed it on white card stock then with a pencil, traced the shaoe on the INSIDE of the die.
  3. With the “Remerciements” stamp set, I used the small ‘merci’ stamp, inked in tangerine tango, coastal cabana, soft suede & so saffron
  4. Finally, I fussy cut along my pencil lines and popped up the cut out piece using dimensionals

Thanks for stopping by. And don’t forget – your comments are always welcome and appreciated!!
