High Tide

IMG_6132

Starting next week I’m going to be weaving in some holidays cards and other projects, so I thought I would showcase one more of my favourite swaps today. This one is from Frances Stevenson and page 145 of the Annual catalogue. Even though it’s now fall, I absolutely love this card… from the colours to the sequins to the sponging of the sand and sky, it’s a great card. I might have to keep this one out over the winter to remind myself of the beach when we’re surrounded by snow!

The stamp set used is called High Tide and the coordinating framelits (small starfish) are Under the Sea. In terms of colours, this card features Bermuda Bay and Crumb Cake for the inks and Whisper White, Sahara Sand and the Brights 6×6 DSP for cardstock/paper. I always like to add a bit of bling to my cards and this card uses the Pearl Basic Jewels, Iridescent Sequin Assortment and the Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.

First Week of Autumn

Thankful Fall wm

The first week of Autumn is here! I can’t believe how fast the year is going by… before we know it Winter and Christmas will be here.

In honour of the change of the season I created this card using the Sheltering Tree stamp set with Pineapple Punch, Grapefruit Grove and Crumb Cake.

Happy Autumn!

Little Twinkle

The Little Twinkle Suite is one that I’ve had my eye on for a while (my list of what I want and what I can actually buy never seem to match up, do you ever notice that?!), so thanks to Laurie Alexander for caseing these two great little cards from our Annual catalogue swap!

To recreate these cards you will need the Little Twinkle bundle, the Twinkle Twinkle DSP and cardstock pack (or Grey Granite, Petal Pink and Pool Party cardstock), Silver Baker’s Twine (the Petal Pink and Pool Party) and the Twinkle adhesive-backed sequins.

First Frost

First Frost wm

I’m loving the First Frost stamp set from the new Holiday catalogue and decided to use it for my card for the Holiday catalogue card swap I participated in. I haven’t picked up my card swaps yet so stay tuned for some of my favourites!

In the meantime if you’d like to case this project I used Mossy Meadow and Crumb Cake for this card along with some linen thread, Festive Farmhouse DSP, Stitched Shapes framelits and Wink of Stella.

Half Full

While I’m working away on my Holiday catalogue swaps here’s another card from the Annual catalogue swap I participated in. This one was made by Shirley Hannah and used the Half Full stamp set.

I love the embossing on the card as well as the Designer Series Paper (Regal Patterns pack DSP) and Burlap ribbon. I also think it’s very fitting that she used Merry Merlot cardstock!!

Other supplies used were Basic Black cardstock, white craft ink, Versamark, white embossing powder, linen thread, heat tool and Scallop Tag Topper punch. She also used the Stamparatus.

So here’s the first card that I’m sharing from the recent Annual Catalogue case card swap I participated in. This is definately one of my favourites…. I’m still wondering why I haven’t picked up this set and the coordinating framelits!

To case this project you’ll need the Apron of Love stamp set, the Apron Builder framelits and the colours used are (for paper) Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Powder Pink and Soft Seafoam as well as (for inks) Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Crumb Cake

Catalogue Card Swap

Thankful Trees wm

I’ve participated in card swaps before and I love the cards and ideas that I get back when I do them! With this swap we were to choose a creation from the current Annual Catalogue and case it (case = copy and share everything). The card I chose used the Sheltering Tree stamp set, the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Impressions embossing folder and two of the new colours that came from the colour refresh and new In Colours release; Granny Apple Green and Call Me Clover.

Go to my website to get all the supplies you need to case this card for yourself (I’m happy to let you know what other products you’ll need and offer some helpful tips. Plus stay tuned over the next few weeks as I’ll share some of the cards that I received from this swap!
