Loving this Blended Seasons Bundle! Only valid until August 31, 2018.

I saw someone creating a wreath using a template, and was so impressed that I had to try it myself and create my own template.

Blended Seasons

No comments
Hello Friends!   

Welcome to my weekly live and blog. I just finished posting this card on my FB Live. If you missed it, I am here every Wednesday at 7:30 pm PST. Be sure to like and share my page so that you get the notifications.

I am all about multiple stamping. Meaning create more than one of the same card. You have all your supplies out, why not. Saves you time from having to recreate and clean up again.

This post is all about the Blended Seasons bundle. I really love this set as it has so many varieties. 

When creating this card, I realized that there is no coordinating die for the hibiscus. I hate fussy cutting so I created a SVG file for the hibiscus stamp. 

I use (1) 4-1/4" x 11" Thick Whisper White cs, score at 5-1/2" as the base card.

I used the layering squares framelit and basic black cs to create the frame. If you have an e-cutter create the black frame for multiple stamping.

These are the inks I used:

  • Granny Apple Green
  • Poppy Parade


I am going to be in Orlando, Florida for Stampin' Up! 30th year convention in November. I will be bringing some dauber cases there. If you would like to reserve one for yourself and save on the shipping, please let me know.

Cost is $35 US. You will receive the Full Wood Mount case, template, cut foam to hold 40 daubers, and you get 5 daubers to start. Please email me with your payment if you want to reserve one.

Thinking of You

Hello Friends!    

RIP Masaru Ho.

Our family is sadden by the loss of this kid. Just 34 years old who lost his life in a motorcycle accident on August 1, 2018 around 6:30 pm.

He is my cousin's youngest son who was supposed to be married in two weeks.

Funeral will take place next Saturday in Vancouver, and I was in need of a sympathy card. I hate making them as they are depressing so decided to brighten it up a little.

I used the Painted Harvest stamp set for the very first time and it was sitting on the shelf collecting dust.

Because I hate making them, I said to myself to make multiples to have on hand so that I don't have to think about them. For the sentiment I used the Rooted in Nature set.

(1) 5-1/2" x 11" Very Vanilla cs, score at 4-1/4"
(1) 3-3/4" x 5" Very Vanilla cs
(1) 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" Basic Black cs
Remnant piece of Very Vanilla, So Saffron, Basic Black cs

Granny Apple Green ink
Lemon Lime Twist ink
Early Espresso ink
Pineapple Punch ink
So Saffron ink
Daffodil Delight ink

Edited: August 8, 2018 - Here is the video tutorial here to create multiple cards.
