Getting Ready for Canada Day!

Monday, June 28th, 2021

Happy Monday! We’ve got Canada Day coming up this week, and so here’s my Canadian card!



This cute little Avery Elle stamp and die set is designed by Canadian Elena Roussakis! I stamped and embossed the adorable beaver and coloured him with Copics before die cutting. The larger of the two Whittle Wood Picture Frame dies seemed a perfect way to highlight him. For the background, I added a tiny panel of watercolour paper, that I first dipped in mermaid lagoon and mowed lawn distress ink, then when when dry added a few trees at the horizon. It still needed a little something, so I inlaid a few die cut Paper Smooches maple leaves using a scrap of red cardstock. (Do you still miss Paper Smooches, too? Scrap ‘n Stamp has a few stamp and die sets left if you want to add to your collection!) Finally, I tucked one of the sentiments from the stamp set under the corner of the twig frame.



Hope you’re looking forward to a great week! If you decide to do some shopping, remember to use 10Lindsey for 10% off your order!

Sea Life Sentiments

Thursday, June 24th, 2021

I hope that you’re playing along with the Scrap ‘N Stamp daily challenge, and enjoying yourself! I love visiting the challenge page HERE on Facebook, and seeing how creative everyone is.  If you haven’t joined us yet, it’s easy to do! Just join the page, create a project for one of the daily prompts, and share your creation on the page. Be sure to use the hashtag #snschallenge there, & on your other social media pages.  Play along with as many days as you want. Then, at the end of the month, one lucky participant is randomly chosen, and WINS a $50 GIFT CARD to shop Scrap ‘N Stamp! Today’s word prompt is ‘sentiments’, courtesy of me, Deb, for the Design Team.   I chose to use the Poppystamps Sea Life Sentiments stamp sets, along with some Lavinia sea themed stamps.


I admit that I just love the design style of Lavinia stamps! And since I’ve been in a sea/ocean theme lately, it was easy to choose the Sea Creatures, and Sea Tangle stamps to use on today’s card.

Sea Life Sentiments

This card was fun to do – I just let my creativity have fun!


First, start with a blue slimline card base. Next, use the Picket Fence Studios Slimline Die Cutting System to cut a piece of white cardstock for the back layer, and a light blue/green piece for the top layer. Next, use the stitched circle from this same die set, and die cut 3 circles from the front.

Use the Lavinia Sea Tangle stamp and a turquoise ink, and stamp randomly on the die cut front panel. Set this aside, while you work on the back panel.  On the white panel, use a blending tool to apply Broken China Distress Oxide ink within the 3 circle areas. Next, place the piece in your stamp platform, and line up the image stamps from the Sea Creatures set. Cover the stamps with Versamark ink, and stamp.  Have fun with the embossing powders – I combined 3 WOW embossing powders in Gold, Florida Sunset and Sea of Tranquility on the 3 images.  Shake off any excess powder, and set with your heat tool.  Stamp the sentiments from the Poppystamps Sea Life Sentiments set in Versamark, and use the left over combined colours of embossing powder for them.

Now, layer the stamped die cut/stamped panel over the image panel with foam tape or squares, and then attach the sentiments. Finally, add some sparkle with Picket Fence Studios Spiked Ocean Water Sequin Mix, and some clear acrylic bubbles.

I love the sparkle  & shine from the mixed embossing powders, along with the sequins!

Ice Cream, Ice Cream, Who Wants Ice Cream?

Thursday, June 10th, 2021

Hello Friends!

It’s Susan here today sharing a card for  Random Acts of Cardness. The prompt for today is Ice Cream.  One of my favorite treats to have as a kid – and still is – are ice cream sandwiches. LOVE them! So when I saw the Whittle Ice Cream Sandwich Die from Poppystamps I knew right away I had to have it.

The die has the detailed piece you see on the top of the sandwich and a plain piece for the bottom and for the middle. I used the plain piece to cut some white craft foam for the ice cream to put between the chocolate layers. I cut the Poppystamps Playful Hugs Die 5x from card stock and layered them on top of each other – I used a scrap piece of blue card stock from my stash for the top layer but added some Faded Jeans and Stormy Sky Distress Inks for a little bit of variation. I used the same inks to do a little ink blending behind the sandwiches. I used the Poppystamps Word Balloons Dies to write on my sentiments. I adhered everything to a card stock panel that I cut with the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangle Dies – I used the 2nd largest one – and I used craft foam for more dimension.

The Poppystamps Whittles line of products are sooooo cute. I’m having a blast playing with them. AND they are not expensive so you don’t have to feel guilty about buying a lot of them – I know I didn’t feel guilty.


Have you hopped along with us yet this month?

The theme was Whittles and I’m sharing 4 cards HERE if you’d like to hop along. If you do be sure to leave a comment on my blog for a chance to win a $50 Gift Certificate to the SNS store.
