Hello stampers and happy Friday to you. Gone Fishing is a fantastic bundle with a LOT of stamps and dies. It also comes with great patterned paper. After stamping all the images and die cutting with all the dies, I came to the conclusion that this bundle is great value. Not only is it perfect for masculine cards, it also is very well suited to scrapbooking and gift packaging. Let’s take a look shall we?
Gone Fishing Bundle
Here is an image of all the stamps stamped on a piece of white cardstock with the die cuts laying beside them. I do this for my Stamping Through My Stash video series on YouTube. Every Wednesday you can join me for a new Stamping Through My Stash video.
If you look at the next photo, you will see that these two dies make ripples in the pond. The ripples are subtle, so they really come to life when you sponge them with some colour. I used Misty Moonlight. When I get back from Norway I hope to actually make some cards with this bundle.
Some Great Inspiration
Here are a few sites that you can click on for some great card ideas. This pop-up card from Rachel Tessman is amazing. You will also love this tacklebox card from Laura Seki. Her card is not on her Facebook page, but I saw it on the Demonstrator Planning Place. If you enjoy daily inspiration, you might want to join my Pampered Stamper Favourite Finds Group on Facebook. Every day I share a “favourite find” for your inspiration.
The Catalog as an Idea Book
Do you use the annual catalog as an idea book? It really is a wonderful resource! Once you “case” (copy and share everything) a card from the catalog, you get a good start and your own creativity will start flowing. Here are a some ideas for you.
A Personal Note
Tomorrow Gerard and I leave for England and then on Sunday afternoon to the cruise ship to sail to Norway on the incentive trip. Did you know that less than 1% of demonstrators earn this trip? I feel incredibly blessed and truth be told, I did work very hard to earn it. What a wonderful feeling that Gerard finally gets to experience one of these trips.
A big thank you to all of you who have helped to make this happen. Thanks to my customers and my team members and to all of you who have shared my posts, commented on my videos and subscribed to my YouTube channel.
For the week that I am gone you will get a $5 coupon for every $25 you spend on online orders. Happy shopping!!!
Happy Tuesday stampers. Today I am going to share a gorgeous card in shades of blue with vellum embossing. To say that I love this card is an understatement. I used one of my all time favourite stamp sets, In The Moment. Would you like to see it??
Shades of Blue
This card was inspired by the gorgeous Countryside Inn paper which should be available again next week. It has many shades of blue and it reminds me of Delft Blue.

Hello stampers and happy Friday to you. Today you get to see a great card using On The Ocean and collage stamping. Sound like fun? It is!!
On The Ocean Collage Stamping
This collage stamping card is a slimline card that uses only stamps, ink and paper. No dies, no punches, no ribbon or any other accessories. It can be a challenge making a simple stamping card so I am always thrilled when it turns out so well. Let’s take a look.
This card is my submission for the Demo Design Dream Team. This is a monthly tutorial bundle that my customers and my team get for free. The theme this coming month is Simple Stamping. Would you like to see the inside?
\For this slimline card I used Soft Sea Foam as the base which measures 7″ by 8 1/2″ scored at 3 1/2″. The dark blue layer is patterned paper from Countryside Inn and it measures 3 3/8″ by 8 3/8″. The white layer is 3″ by 8″. My ink pads are Starry Sky and Bojo Blue as well as Soft Sea Foam. What do you think of this On The Ocean stamp set? If you love it and you live in Canada, just click on the images in the supply list to shop with me. If you live in Europe you can simply click here.
New In Colors and Core Colours
Yes, I am using both ways of spelling this word. I use the American spelling so that people can find it in a Google search, and I use the Canadian spelling because I am after all Canadian!
There is still an opportunity to sample the new in colors with this “club”. You can use the PayPal button in this blog post to get your kit or message me if you prefer to pay in a different way.
Thanks for joining me today! Happy stamping and remember, there are new annual catalogs available for porch pickup in Chatham or I can mail one to you if you are not local. Have a super day!
Hello stampers and happy Wednesday to you! Today I am showing you a most lovely card called a Box Fold Card. This card was brought to my attention by one of my loyal followers and she asked me to do my take on it. When I checked out the link that she sent me, I loved the card just the way it was. Then I realized that I did not have 8 1/2 by 11″ cardstock here in the Netherlands, I only had A4 cardstock which is longer and narrower (approximately 8 1/4″ by `11 3/4″. That meant I had to recreate the fold with metric measurements. This also meant that I had to adapt the card because the closing mechanism no longer worked. Huge thanks to Beverlee Morales for the incredible design of this card.
Don’t you just love how this box fold card matches my lovely new blouse? Purely coincidental but it really does make me very happy! Bubble Bath is just the most ethereal shade of pink!
Video Tutorial for Bubble Bath Box Fold Card
Please watch the video below to see how this card is put together and also for the measurements so you can recreate it at home. If you love the video please give me a thumbs up and consider leaving a comment or sharing on Pinterest or Facebook. Your shares and comments and thumbs up really do make a difference and I truly appreciate it!
