This week’s Stamp Ink Paper challenge is a fun one because it is carmaker’s choice! If you have been following me, you know that I love mixed metallics…specifically gold and silver so this card should come as no surprise. The springtime foils from the second release of Sale-A-Bration made this card a breeze and it sure has a wow factor,…

I go for weekly physio, have had nerve conduction study, acupuncture, etc. I finally returned to a chiropractor that had resolved my shoulder…

Inspired by a make & take at my team leader’s Customer Appreciation Event last weekend, I made this card choosing the middle horizontal line with die cut, emboss, and floral. This card is so simple but…

Whose ready for a throwdown? I know I am. This challenge has a great colour combination that is so easy and fun to create with. With Valentine’s Day right around the corner and with my new Heart Happiness stamp set in hand, I created a simple, bright, generic card that could be used for most occasions. Product List Heart Happiness Photopolymer…

(insert happy dance here) This was a super fun card to make with all of the elements and layers and the Heart Happiness stamp set is a MUST, even for those that don’t usually use hearts (my hand is way up in the air here).   The product…
