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!

Introducing NEW Host Sets - Artfully Folded

Hello friends!  It's the end of the week, and I've got one more post up my sleeve!  I've spent the first week introducing you to a few of my favourite things - Monday was In Colours, Tuesday was the Sea of Textures Suite, Thursday was the Colour Revamp, and today, I'm featuring Host Stamp Sets!  While this is the last post of the week, there's still PLENTY more to share and many more posts to come this year - we're just getting our feet wet! 

In each and every Stampin' Up! Catalogue, there is a small selection of beautiful stamp sets that are exclusively reserved for our hosts.  These gorgeous sets are available with orders of $200+ (even if that's just your order!) for a discounted rate.  As a demonstrator, I'm able to purchase them early - so let me introduce you to Artfully Folded!


This beautiful stamp set features gorgeous origami shapes in different styles and sizes - they can be stamped in outline or filled in with colour - plus a few other decorative elements, and a gorgeous sentiment.


Do you remember that sentiment on the card I shared yesterday?  I told you I'd tell you where it was from!  "Be your own kind of beautiful" is small and sweet, and stands alone as the only sentiment in this beautiful set. 


On this card, I paired Coastal Cabana, Granny Apple Green, Daffodil Delight, and Grapefruit Grove with Whisper White for a soft and sweet effect.  I love that the "Happy Day" sentiment, from the brand new "Itty Bitty Greetings" stamp set, could be used for a wedding, a birthday, or any other occasion!

See you again soon - have a fabulous day!
