WISH - Broadway Birthday

Good morning, friends!  It has been ages since I've blogged - I missed you!  The plague known as strep throat swept through our house, and my husband and I spent a solid week on survival mode.  Our six-year-old has been holding the family together - it's been a disaster!  We are finally both on the mend (mostly, at least... he's still got a bit of lingering complications and I'm developing a cold to end things off...) and we've spent the last few days playing catch-up on everything that fell by the wayside.  

Today's card is a remake of one of the gorgeous designs in the 2018-2019 Stampin' Up! Catalogue.  Working with new products is sometimes quite challenging for me, so going to the catalogue samples is an easy way for me to break in my new supplies and colours and get my creative juices flowing.  


Broadway Birthday was hands-down my favourite bundle in the catalogue, and I love that this fun card uses the stamps without the DSP, creating a fun new colour pallet of Smoky Slate, Lemon Lime Twist, and Blueberry Bushel.  It's masculine without being drab and dull - love it!


Add a bit of silver foil and some metallic silver stars and you've got the perfect festive birthday card!  

See you again soon - have a fabulous day!

Be Strong - Rooted in Nature

Hello friends, and happy Saturday!  I'm in for a busy day - it's our 11th wedding anniversary, so we're going out for a nice dinner and a Roller Derby double-header!  Woo!

Today's card is sweet and simple - sometimes less is more (although if anyone asks, I'll deny having said that!)  Simple, lots of white space, two colours - as much as it's not my regular style, I DO love this one.


Soft Sea Foam is the perfect pale green - such a lovely new addition to the Stampin' Up! colour line up!  Here, I've paired it with Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, and Very Vanilla for a muted and classic pallette.  A bit of copper twine and some matte sequins add a bit of bling without bringing it over the top.  Love!

See you again soon - have a fabulous day!

Happy Birthday - Lined Alphabet

Hello friends!  Happy Saturday!  I'm cheating and writing this on Friday afternoon to post tomorrow - I'm heading out to see Trevor Noah tonight (all the heart eyes!) and trying to get my bases covered before I go! 

Today's card was a happy experiment with Brusho, ink, and minimal supplies - this card was created before my first full order from the new catalogue arrived, which meant I had virtually no ribbon or embellishments to use!  It was a bit of a challenge to bring in lots of colour and texture without my usual supplies, but a few creative twists and a whole lot of mess later, and this beauty was created.  I really love how this turned out, which is great because Brusho has a mind of it's own!


What IS Brusho?  It's a watercolour crystal powder that comes in a little shaker - so after wetting your paper, you sprinkle it on and let the colour burst in whatever direction and design it chooses.  Sometimes it's gorgeous, other times - at least for me - it goes in the garbage and I try again!  This one was perfect on the first try.  A few splatters with a Bermuda Bay marker and a few suns stamped on, and this background was complete and ready for the sentiment.


I love this colour combination of Mango Melody with Bermuda Bay.  It's so pretty!

All of the supplies shown here are available in my Online Canadian Stampin' Up! Store - have you made your wishlist yet?   Get shopping, friends - these new supplies are to die for!

See you again soon - have a fabulous day!

Birthday Beers - Calls for a Celebration

Hey friends!  This week has been sheer craziness and it's only Wednesday!  I started a new job this past week, and I'm in the thick of training and orientation shifts - more hours than I like to work in a week and I'm not done yet!  It's been fantastic, though, and I'm so eager for this new position. 

In the meantime, though, I've had a few minutes here and there to get creative!  This card has been about two months in the making... it started off with different coloured bottles in a different layout, and then after the Colour Revamp, I needed to get rid of some of the colours, so I changed the layout while I was at it!  Then the background was finished, but I was waiting for the perfect sentiment - Calls For A Celebration, a stamp set in the brand new 2018-2019 Stampin' Up! Catalogue, had just what I wanted!  So I ordered that, waited for it to be delivered, and was finally able to finish my card!  Phew! 


Sometimes cards take a little bit of time until I feel like they're just right, but two months is a whole new record!  I love the bottles in all the shades of the Brights Colour Family - it's so fun and festive!


I've got another SUPER fun card queued up for you this week - don't forget to stop back closer to the weekend to see that one!

See you again soon - have a fabulous day!
