Thank you

Shadow Stamped Thanks

Thursday, March 31, 2016

My thank you card for all my orders during March which I sent out to customers with a gift from me.  I love making these up each month, they always make me smile.

Fiona's notes: This is a great card to pump out in bulk. First stamp the flowers in White Kraft ink, leave it to dry, then roughly stamp over them in any colour you like.  I've used Bermuda Bay.  Finish them off with a circle punched using the 1/4" hand punch in a colour such as Rose Red.

Stamps: Endless Thanks, Flower Shop  Inks: White Kraft, Bermuda Bay, Memento Black  Papers: Crumb Cake, Rose Red  Accessories: 1/4" hand punch

Thanks for stopping by today,


Hello My Friend - Brian King CASE

Tuesday, March 29, 2016

A friend of mine is about to move away and I've already made a "goodbye" card for him for when he leaves (you will have to wait for a few days to see that one because it's part of the an upcoming blog hop).  I also wanted him to get something nice in the mail soon after arriving so I thought the "Hello" Sale-A-Bration stamp set would be just perfect.   

Fiona's Notes: This is a CASE of a birthday card designed by Brian King.  Sometimes his designs are too pretty to do much changing to and so I just switched the balloon paper he used for these colourful triangles from the same pack (It's My Party DSP) and changed the sentiment to "my friend."

Stamps: Hello  Inks:  Memento Black  Papers: Mint Macaron, Sahara Sand, It's My Party DSP  Accessories Stampin Dimensionals

Current Host Code: EUZUPHD7 (enter this with any order of $250 or less so that I can share the hostess bonus love with you!)

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Don't forget to keep an eye out in a few days for my "Bye" card for the same friend.



Crazy Crafters March Blog Hop with Allison Okamitsu

Sunday, March 20, 2016

Canadian demo Allison Okamitsu's beautiful creations first popped up on my radar when I came across this beautiful Advent Box project.  So I'm really excited to be in a blog hop honouring her.  

I chose this card of hers to CASE (Copy and Selectively Edit, in this instance) because I loved the coloured-in vellum.  Here's my card based on hers: 

Fiona's Notes:
  • The little bumblebees are stamped on one side of the velum and then coloured with markers from behind.  This creates a stand-out black with subtler colours coming through the paper.
  • The little heart accent is clear so I stuck onto Daffodil Delight cardstock then snipped it out and stuck it on with glue.
  • Although it's hard to see in a photo, I ran my new Wink of Stella pen over the black cardstock behind the sentiment.  When you see the card it shimmers subtly and really makes the sentiment stand out.
Stamps:  Baby Bumblebee, Itty Bitty Banners  Inks: Stayzon Black  Papers: Whisper White thick, Blushing Bride, Basic Black, Daffodil Delight, Vellum  Accessories: Stampin Write Markers, Itty Bitty Accents, stampin dimensionals, Wink of Stella pen

Rock Star

Friday, March 18, 2016

We all know a few rockstars, don't we?  Send them a card like this and tell them how important they are to you.

Fiona's notes: Use any kind of DSP for the background strip.  I liked the kind of "swooshing" of this one, a bit like a shooting star.

Stamps: Be The Star  Inks: Bermuda Bay  Papers: Whisper White thick, Park Lane DSP  Accessories: Bermuda Bay marker, Stars thinlets, rhinestones, stampin dimensionals

Hello Birthday Hats

Tuesday, March 15, 2016

I love the fun of birthdays, I love making people cards, baking them cakes, and and making a fuss of them.  I sent one of these cards to my team leader at work and told him that as birthdays unleash the inner child in us all I was allowed to call him "birthday boy."  He agreed!  

Fiona's Notes: These are great cards to do in bulk, they are a doddle to pump out and so much fun picking which papers to use as the side panels.

Stamps: Hello (SAB)  Inks: Memento Black, Watermelon Wonder, Mint Macaroon,   Papers: Whisper White thick, Birthday Bouquet DSP, It's My Party DSP  Accessories: Stampin Dimensionals, Paper snips

CASED from: Teri Pocock - thanks so much!

Curvy Keepsake Box

Easter Bunny Boxes

Saturday, March 12, 2016

Here's my Easter box for this year to fill with yummy chocolate eggs and give to all my friends.  Too cute huh?

Fiona's notes: The owl punch has so many uses outside of making up owls.  Like the eyes and nose on this little bunny.  It's one of my most used punches and I'd be lost without it.

Papers: Whisper White, Blushing Bride, Basic Black  Accessories: Curvy Keepsake Thinlets, Owl Punch, 3/4" circle punch, Smoky Slate Marker, White Gel pen

Thanks so much for stopping by today,

Wednesday, March 09, 2016
