Love Bug

Good evening everyone. Ever thought about hosting a workshop to receive up to 3 free stamp sets as well as free Stampin'Up! products? Call me today to book your night! You could receive the stamp set I used to create this cute little card. The stamp set is only available for hostesses, you cannot purchase it. I used Chocolate Chip cardstock and a piece of DSP from the Tall Tales package. The circles are cut out using the 3/4" circle punch and the colours are Brilliant Blue, Melon Mambo and So Saffron. I used a variety of markers (mostly the In Colours) to colour the caterpillar. Threw on a piece of Old Olive Ribbon and Voila! Hope this little bug brightens up a dreary day for you all, thanks for stopping by, Steph

Hello! Here is a simple card for today. I call him Frosty. He is from the "Jolliest Time of the Year" stamp set and makes some really great cards. I also used my "Snow burst" set to add a few snow flakes, using Baja Breeze ink and cardstock along with Whisper White and Not Quite Navy. I used my Versamark pad to stamp Frosty and black emboss powder, it gives him a nice shiny look. The left edge is done with the Scallop Edge punch and Baja cardstock. The right side has a strip of Designer Series paper from a retired Simply Scrappin kit (I Wish -I think!) Sorry to use some retired paper and inks, but they look so nice together! On another note, a big congrats to Jennifer Walker for winning the door prize package at the Glencoe Fair. THanks to all who stopped by and filled out a ballot. Hope you're keeping warm in this little blast of fall!

Smiley Face

Another sneak peak at the calendar class. This page is of my little smiley face Kayla. I used Melon Mambo cardstock and another piece from the Tall Tales DSP. the butterfly is stamped with Brilliant Blue and I used the Melon Mambo and Crushed Curry markers to colour in some of the dots. The butterfly is from the "Garden Whimsy" stamp set which is another stamp set I love (however, I have yet to find one I don't love!) I popped the butterfly out using dimensionals. Just a reminder the class is on Friday October 23rd and pre-registration by October 6th is required. Have a great evening and thanks to all who dropped by my booth over the week-end. I'll be posting the winner of the Door prize tomorrow morning.


Hope you all are enjoying your day. Today's post is a page from the calendar class I am having on the 23rd of October. It's a super class to learn how to make simple scrapbook pages and at the end they all go in a stand up calendar - a great Christmas gift! The calendar holds a 6x6 scrapbook page and a 6x6 calendar page beside it and stands up, perfect for someones desk. And the best part is the pages come out after and can go right into a 6x6 album! The colours on this page are Old Olive and the DSP is a piece from the new "Tall Tales" DSP. I used a button from the Button Latte set as an embellishment and the ChooChoo is stamped with "Simple Type" alphabet (sorry it's retired - but thanks Mel for letting me borrow it!) I used Chocolate Chip ink to stamp and edge the circles which are punched out using the 3/4" circle punch. If you like this or the idea of a personalized calendar, send me an e-mail for more details or to sign up for the class! stampaholicsteph@gmail.com

Have a great day!

Snow Swireld

Good morning everyone. This really has to be one of my favourite Christmas Stamp sets. It's Snow Swirled and I just love this card. I have also made an updated version using current DSP as this is the retired Ski Slope DSP. The background is Chocolate Chip and I used my versamark pad to stamp the tree and greeting and silver emboss powder to give it a really rich look. I also used a blender pen to add some baja breeze colour to the tree. The ribbon is the satin organza which has such a nice soft look to it, perfect for this card don't you think?

I will be using the other version I have made with the current DSP in my Christmas Stamp-a-Stack Class, Friday November 20th. If you are interested please e-mail me at stampaholicsteph@gmail.com pre-registration by Nov. 6th is required. Thanks again for stopping by!

Oh Deer!

Good morning All! Here is a little card I had to scrap lift from Splitcoasters! I saw it and loved it. I am going to use this card along with 2 other ones that I designed myself for my "Christmas Stamp-a-Stack" class on Friday November 20th. I used the new "Holiday Lounge" Designer Series Paper, Taken with Teal, and Sahara Sand card stock. The image is the "Dasher" stamp which is so cheap and yet so versatile. I stamped the greeting with a stamp from the " All Holidays" stamp set. To finish it off I used a piece of the new "Soft Suede" polka dot ribbon. The great thing about this ribbon is one side is polka dots and the other side is plain so you can use which ever you want.
Now I have to tell you why this card is called "Oh Deer" and not Dasher; one my husband thought it was cute, and the other, well let me tell you, if you could see my nice little scrapping room - you would say "Oh Dear"! The fair is this week-end and I am having a Stampin'Up! booth there and I could really use another month to be prepared! However, I think it's going to be awesome and I'm very excited. Thanks for looking in, we are slowly getting our PC back to normal (although I still can't get the scanner to work) so I will be posting again tmw. Maybe we'll see you at the fair!

Good evening! For some of you that had visited my old blog, this may look a little familiar! I am finally with a computer again, but with having to change my e-mail, I decided to change my blod as well..so here it is, hopefully new and improved! This is one of my favourite cards, it uses the new "Circle Circus" set which I just love cuz it's so versatile! I used the new "In colours" as well, Crushed Curry, Soft Suede, and Dusty Durango. To edge the bottom I used the Eyelit Edge punch and the greeting is from the "Best Wishes and More" stamp set. Hope you like, stay tuned for more!
