Pop & Twist with Beautiful You

I have seen so many videos on how to make the Pop & Twist card and finally decided to try it out for myself. Interactive cards are always fun to open up - a little surprise inside. Now that I have been able to make this I am going to teach my Stamper's Tech Club this month how to make it. I think they will love it!

This Month At My Stamper's Tech Club

Wow Christmas is just over 5 weeks away but with the background in my photo (my backyard) you would think it was spring. It's fall here in Ottawa and the weather is amazing! The grass is greener than it was all summer!
That said how about a little Christmas inspiration? Next week is my Stamper's Tech club and this month one of the projects will be this fun fold card. It uses the new circle framelits, holly embossing folder, pompom trim and Candy Cane Lane DSP. Of course it would be complete without a little touch of glitter & glimmer - but that is on the inside and is a surprise.  I am excited to show my "Techies" how to make this card.  
Want to learn more about my Stamper's Tech club? Here are the highlights.

  • It is a 6 month club (there are 4 months left and you can still join)
  • It is affordable & flexible - each club you decide your fee option - either pay a flat fee $15 or place a min. $40 net order. Placing orders does not come without a reward. All orders you place during the club life cycle are tallied up on a monthly basis. When you reach $300 in net purchases you receive $30 in free product from me!  How great is that? 
  • You will make 2 amazing projects each month and I will provide you with typed up instructions so that you can recreate the projects anytime.
  • More info can be found here. I have 2 spots open on my Saturday afternoon sessions.

Masked Leaf Technique

I can't believe that Fall is here!  Last night I kicked off my Stamper's Tech club and this is one of the projects that the ladies made.  
I love the new copper embossing powder, copper twine and the copper foil paper.  They both add a touch of shine to the card.   

Morning Mist

Inspired by Michelle Zindorff
Next weekend marks the start of my annual Stamper's Technique club. Each month I teach my stampers different stamping techniques and this month I will be teaching what I am calling "Morning Mist".
I can't wait for my club members to make this card.

Detailed Santa Thinlits Shaker Card

The Detailed Santa thinlits are a real gem. Starting Sept. 1st you can order your own through my online store.
Yesterday I was looking through the basement and stumbled across some beads that my daughter used to play with and I immediately knew what I wanted to do with them. So I made this shaker card. I love how it turned out! What do you think?

Fox Builder Punch

It just amazes me how creative some people can be. I saw this posted on Pinterest and thought I would share it here. I wish I could tell you who came up with all these but the link on Pinterest didn't take me to the creators website.  So I apologize for not giving credit. Who ever came up with all of these - genius!  All of these were made with the Fox Builder punch!  I can't wait to try them out myself.  Maybe I will use one of these in my Fox & Friends class on Aug. 20th.    I have a couple of spots open if you are interested in joining the class.

Pretty Kitty Birthday Card

Pretty Kitty Birthday Card
I can't stop playing with this stamp set - Pretty Kitty. I used Blendabilities to color the kitty and the butterflies.  The greeting is from the new hostess set  Time of Year. Love that there are some matching framelits (Bunch of Banners) to cut out the banner.

Pretty Kitty

Pretty Kitty
This Friday I am holding a "Pretty Kitty" card class. This is such an adorable stamp set!

Foxy Friends Builder Punch - Skunk

Fox Builder Punch
Awe!  He is so cute (if I do say so myself).  Using the Fox Builder punch I created this adorable little skunk. My inspiration came from greeting, "Well, this just stinks" from the Here For You stamp set (#141541 wood).
The skunk was layered on an embossed piece of white card stock using the Woodland embossing folder (# 139673). I added a touch of color to the grooves on the trees for depth and dimension. What do you think?

Foxy Friends - Baby Bear Cards

Bear idea was cased from Nicole Kunzip
Card idea For the Love of Stamping
Fox Builder Pumch Baby Bear
I have seen all sorts of ideas for the foxy friend punch. Here I have made it into a baby bear card. One boy and one girl card. The colors on the girl card are vanilla and flirty flamingo (new 2016 - 2017 In Color) and vanilla & pool party on the boy card. 
I am also loving the new Thougtful Banner stamp set (141614) & coordinating punch - Duet Banner Punch (141486). Here it was stamped and popped up on dimensionals. What do you think?  Now if only I knew someone having a baby....

Bella & Friends - Miss You

Bella & Friends
Loving this stamp set. This cute little puppy is missing you! I created this card using various Stampin' Up! Big Shot tools - Brick Wall embossing folder, Flourish Thinlits (vine), Hearth & Home Framelits.  I used Tip Top Taupe ink directly on the embossing folder to create the mortar and texture on the bricks. 
The puppy was colored with Smokey Slate and I added the heart enamel piece (flirty flamingo) to the collar. This will be one of the cards my stampers will make at my Bella & Friends card class.  If you want to join the class be sure to contact me to register.
