Welcome to Creative Stamping.

Demonstrator, I am here to showcase Stampin' Up! products, share special offers and give you fun project ideas.  I look forward to sharing my love of stamping with you and inspiring your creativity.



Christmas Greetings

The words of this stamp from the God's Blessings stamp are perfect for this time of the year...

Sharing with you the miracle of new hope and new life through the glorious gift of Christ the Lord.

Wishing you peace, hope and joy this Christmas season.  Merry Christmas.



For Everything Card

This card was inspired by a design that one of the ladies that attended my December workshop stamped on the front of her altered notepad.  It reminds me of an over-grown garden that has just been disturbed.

For Everything Card
Stamps: For Everything (116686).  Card/Paper: Brocade Blue (108608), So Saffron (108611), Whisper White (106549).  Ink: Brocade Blue (101102), So Saffron (105213).  Accessories: So Saffron 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon (from September's Ribbon Bundle Promotion).

I made a few of these little cards and those who placed an order in December got one of them as my thanks to them.  I really like the versatility of this stamp set and I think I will be using it a lot.

Sweet Treat Car

This week was my nephews birthday and I used two sweet treat cups to create this card.  I got the idea to use rolled licorice for the car wheels from Julia Leece's card and added a trap-door on the inside so that the licorice can be taken out without destroying the card.

Sweet Treat Car
Stamps: Crazy for Cupcakes (115780), Totally Tabs (116428).  Card/Paper: Tempting Turquoise (108598), Real Red (106578), Basic Gray (111859), Basic Black (106561), Whisper White (106549).  Ink: Real Red (103133), Basic Black (101179), Real Red Stampin' Write Marker (100052), Yoyo Yellow Stampin' Write Marker (100050).  Accessories: Sweet Treat Cups (116802).  Tools: 1-3/4" Circle Punch (112004), Scallop Circle (109043), 1-3/8" Circle Punch (104401), Boho Blossums Punch (110711), Daubers (102892), Stampin' Dimensionals (104430).

Christmas Candy Canes

As a small Christmas treat, I gave everyone who attended the December workshops last week a candy cane with a little stamped tag.

Candy Canes
Stamps: Punches Three (Level 1 Hostess).  Card/Paper: Pumpkin Pie 108601), Whisper White (106549).  Ink: Old Olive Stampin' Write Marker (100079), Real Red Stampin' Write Marker (100052).  Accessories: Whisper White 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon (109025).  Tools: Scallop Square Punch (112081), Stampin' Dimensionals (104430).

I had fun co-ordinating the colours of the tags to the colours in the candy canes.  These are very simple to mass-produce and great to give as small gifts.

Butterfly Bouquet

At our workshops in the past week, I have given everyone an opportunity to play with the new Butterfly Prints stamp set and the co-ordinating Butterfly punch.  This is the little make-and-take that anyone who attended my workshops got to make:

Butterfly Prints Make-and-Take
Stamps: Buttefly Prints (117711).  Card/Paper: Kiwi Kiss (116204), Whisper White (106549), Pixie Pink (108596), So Saffron (108611), Pumpkin Pie (108601).  Ink: Kiwi Kiss (111835), Pixie Pink (105212), So Saffron (105213), Pumpkin Pie (105216).  Tools: Butterfly Punch (116629), 1-1/4" Square Punch (104400).

Do you call a group of butterflies a bouquet?  That is what it reminds me of!  For our January workshops we will be using this stamp set and punch again.
