PPA253 Challenge: Bohemian Resist

Hello Friends,

I have not played in a challenge for a long time. So busy with work, that this weekend I decided to pamper myself and play with the new goodies I received.

I am using this sketch by Nicole Watt at Pals Paper Arts.


Here is my take. I am using the Bohemian stamp set and created my own background with versamark and white embossing powder on watercolor paper. I resist it with the new in colors 2015-2017.

My focal point is stamped several times and I have popped the diamonds with dimensional. I also added crystal effect on it so that the diamonds shine. It turned better than what I have expected.

Congratulations to the Giveaway Winners - Liz's Satchel

You've Got This

No comments
Hi Friends,

I have been playing with the new stamp set called You've Got This. This will be available on June 2, 2015 in the 2015-2016 Catalogue.

This is a 3 x 3 card. If missed how the watercoloring is done on the flower you can view it here. Instead of using Daffodil Dijon, I used the Island Indigo color. The background is also new call Boho Chic. I love the boldness!

The twinkle shine that you see here, I applied a clear coat of Wink of Stella.

I don't have a link yet for the Boho Chic embossing folder or the You've Got This stamp set.

Liz's Satchel + Giveaways

Hello friends!

Still waiting patiently for my new Stampin' Up! arrivals. [sigh].

I was away this weekend with the husband and his AAA Midget team in Victoria. A lovely mother's day of relaxing, enjoying double header games and an awesome day being outside in the sunshine. Stuart holds another two more wins in his book. 

While waiting for his games to start, I was daydreaming and thinking what my next 3D project would be. As I am on the role in making purses and handbags, I had an idea, and I figured out the look and shape of a satchel purse but wasn't sure how to make the opening work to hold cards inside until I was inspired by a home decor with a clasp while shopping at Save-On Foods.

Here it is ... Liz's Satchel

The opening is clasped by two magnet buttons covered with the gold foil. When you open the satchel, it can hold cards and envelopes and even a little, something, something.

The two sides have pockets to add gift cards or even 3x3 note cards. 

When creating this, even with small minor adjustments, I could not believe how fast it came together. Liz's Satchel will be in production (writing and filming) next week. Release date for will be May 30, 2015. 


I am giving away the pattern and tutorial to five (5) lucky winners on this blog. For your chance, leave a comment here before 5/30/15.(The winner’s name will be randomly selected and posted on this post after the giveaway closes.) -

3D: Back Pack #2

Hello Stampers,

I had so much fun creating this 3D papercraft back pack #2. It is all made with cardstocks and designer papers. The front of the back pack hold a gift card using the gift card thinlits die.

This project measures 6"(w) x 2"(d) x 6 1/2"(h) and can hold a lot of cards and a little something, something!

I added a Stampin' Up! logo in front on the gift card so that it represents a branded name, in this instance "Stampin' Up!". The strap has a magnet so that you can open and close the flap.

Inlay Butterfly Shaker Card

No comments
Hello friends,

Getting set for the catalogue kick off sale and found out that the On Film die is retiring this year. Oh well, back to the drawing board. This was supposed to be card 2 for 35 mm Camera Class to go!  

Although the On Film die cut is soon to be retired, this frame is still great to use as an inlay.
