Just in Case - All Things Thanks & Free PDF

Just in Case All Things Thanks 1 www.stampcrazywithalison.ca

Today is Just in Case Thursday, the day that Patsy Waggoner and I share a card we have CASED from our current catalogues.

CASE = Copy and Share Everything

Sometimes I make the card exactly as it is shared or I change the images or colours and use it just for inspiration.  Today's card is on page 34 of the Occasions catalogue and uses the Tasty Treats Designer Series Paper and All Things Thanks stamp set. 

Just in Case All Things Thanks 4 www.stampcrazywithalison.ca

I loved the fresh look of this card and switched it up with different colours and the Oh So Succulent stamp set and coordinating Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper (both retiring so hurry if you want them!)

I love the Designer Paper so much - the flower patterns on one side and the more traditional gingham and dots on the opposite sides.

Just In Case Daisies www.stampcrazywithalison.ca

I used the same layout to create this card but flipped it 90 degrees.  This card uses brand new product coming in the new Annual Catalogue on June 1st! Isn't it gorgeous?! The Daisy Delight Stamp Set has a matching Daisy Punch so no fussy cutting.  The paper is from Delightful Daisy Designer Paper and it's stunning.  I finished off the daisy with a Silver Faceted Gem.

Colour Your World Blog Hop! Little Cuties

Colour Your WOrld banner

It's Colour Your World Blog Hop with Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from our global Stampin' Up! family!

  13428501_10207835824911177_372912242881560699_n

This month we have a monochromatic colour palette. The adorable cat reminds Sam (one of our hoppers) of her cat Fennel so I thought I would make a card to honour her kitty using the Little Cuties Photopolymer Stamp Set. 

Colour Your World Little Cuties 1 www.stampcrazywithalison.ca

I started by adding some Urban Underground Designer Series Paper and Washi Tape across the front of my Shimmery White cardstock.  I stamped the kitten image and hat in Basic Black Archival ink on a Shimmery White and cut out with the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  The kitty is coloured with our new Watercolor Pencils and Blender Pen.  I added a little Melon Mambo to her ears and hat because I thought she was a little too plain.

I love this set so much and it's so easy to add the ears, hat, crown and rocker pieces because the set is photopolymer so you can "see" exactly where to place them.  This set is on the retirement list so if you want this set make sure you order it soon.  It will be guaranteed to be available until May 22.

Colour Your World Blog Hop Little Cuties 3 www.stampcrazywithalison.ca

I added some Basic Black Thick Baker's Twine becaues what's a kitty without some twine to play with right? I also wanted to add some texture to the card.  When you watercolor an image make sure to "anchor" it with some ground underneath it.

Builder Birdcage Photopolymer Stamp Set

If you are anything like me you miss things in the catalogue, even though you've looked through it over and over again.  The Builder Birdcage Photopolymer Stamp Set is one of those products I missed.  I noticed on the retirement list it's on sale for 20% off the regular price of $21 and can be purchased for $16.80.

How cute are this little cages? Here's another card using the set.

Builder Birdcage Stamp Set www.stampcrazywithalison.ca

This one was created by the concept artists at Stampin' Up! and was featured in our catalogue beside the stamp set.  Our catalogues are more that a place to find and see our products; they are a place for inspiration with amazing samples. 

Would you like a new Annual Catalogue for 2017-2018? If you are already a customer and have made a purchase in the past year your complimentary copy will arrive in late May in time for the June 1st launch! If you live in Canada and would like one just email me and I'll tell you how you can get your own copy in the mail.

Card Swap Sunday! Balloon Adventures

Balloon Adventures 1 www.stampcrazywithalison.ca

It's Card Swap Sunday - the day I share either one of my own swap cards or one I've received from my demonstrator friends.  Today's card was created by my sister, Ellie Blake, using the Balloon Adventures stamp set. I love this bright and happy card for either men, women or children!

Balloon Adventures Photopolymer Stamp Set (love that it's so easy to see where you are stamping!) and the coordinating Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits Dies are both on the retired list.  The stamps are guaranteed to be available until May 22nd but the awesome framelits are only available while supplies last!

Balloon Adventures 2 www.stampcrazywithalison.ca

Here's the inside of Ellie's card.  I love the Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits Dies which are on sale for 50% off their regular price!! Can you believe you can get these 8 dies for $22.00? WOW

Make sure you order the stamps and the dies on individual numbers and NOT as the bundle to take advantage of the reduced sale price.

Here are the products used in Ellie's card today - click on the links and be taken to my store.  You can also download the full list by clicking the link at the bottom of the pictures.
