Hello and welcome to my little space in the blogging world! I have been passionate about rubber stamping since 1985 and I love it as much today as I did back then! Originally from Vancouver Island, British Columbia, I now make my home in Nova Scotia. April 10th, 2017 marks my 15 year anniversary with Stampin' Up! and I've been blessed by this company and my business more than words can say. I've been fortunate to have earned amazing Grand Vacations, Founder's Circle Retreats (for the top 100 demonstrators in the USA and top 20 in Canada), and a member of the Team Canada strategic group. If you would like to purchase Stampin' Up! products you can shop online (within CANADA) through my website HERE. I hope my blog inspires you in some way - whether it be stamping, crafting, trying a new recipe or something all together new - enjoy! ~ Tina
Hi Friends! I hope that my fellow Canadians have been enjoying our Canada Day long weekend! I took a breather from packing up my house (as I mentioned in an earlier post, I'm in the middle of moving) and have had a lovely weekend. The fireworks in town were awesome and the weather has been sunny and perfect for the local festivities. I managed to dig through my boxes for stamps and supplies I needed to make a special birthday card for my boyfriend's daughter, who turned 19. I had a lot of fun making her card, which featured the "Number of Years" stamp set and coordinating "Large Numbers Framelits".
To make the card I first stamped the numbers using Memento Black ink, and then the words. I then added the flowers and leaves with ink pads and markers. I should also mention that I cased the card layout from Kristina Werner, who did a similar card using different stamps. Isn't it great how we can see a card and completely change it up just from seeing other people's layouts? There is SO MUCH inspiration out there. So back to the card; once my stamping was done I cut out the numbers using the "Larger Numbers Framelits Dies" using some silver glimmer paper and raised the numbers using Stampin' Dimensionals.
