Fairy Celebration an Eclectic card 

This is not new in the catalog this year but it’s new to me. I have wanted Fairy Celebration for quite some time. Just to coordinate it with the 2017-2018 catalog I used Naturally Eclectic DSP and my colour scheme loosely matches the colours in that particular DSP. You cannot know how excited I was to finally stamp and colour one of these fairies!!!!


Quick and Easy Birthday Card

This was such a fun simple birthday card. It uses the Happy Birthday Gorgeous bundle, Foil Frenzy Specialty DSP, Pick a Pattern Washi Tape, and Faceted Jewels in gold. Basics were Berry Blast Card Stock and ink, Basic Black and Whisper White card stock and Stampin Dimensionals.

Happy Birthday Gorgeous!

Happy Birthday Gorgeous just says that happy birthday in such a big way gotta say it’s just shouting it out! I used all new In Colours and the Foil Frenzy Specialty DSP the card stock is Berry Blast, Powder Pink and Lemon Lime Twist and the ink is Berry Blast and Powder Pink. Happy Birthday is adhered with the new adhesive sheets and I must say I love that new product!!! It’s finished with fine woven ribbon in Lemon Lime Twist as well as an itty bitty bow to match. To me those itty bitty bows are life changing 😳😂

A little Sunshine ☀️ 

Today I am posting a card which is made with the Sunshine Sayings Bundle. This bundle was introduced in the last catalog and is carrying forward into the new catalog. I also used the layering Circles dies and a retired heart punch. The colours are Calypso Coral, So Saffron, Flirty Flamingo, and Melon Mambo ink for the Happy Birthday. I’m so glad I managed to squeeze this set in before the bundle retired due to the 10% savings. In the new catalog the stamps and dies have to be bought separately. There are a few weeks left for the old catalog to be available for ordering bundles and I plan on getting as many of the bundled items as I can afford. There will be new bundles in the new catalog.

Birthday Make and Take Party card 2

I’m holding a birthday make and take party. It will be on Saturday March 18th from 2-4pm. We will make 3 of each of 3 different cards. This is my 2nd card of the 3. If you missed the first go to my blog and look back a bit it’s there. If you’re going to be around North Vancouver BC Canada email me at stampinsmilesbyjackie@gmail.com for details. There will be cake and refreshments too! It promises to be a great afternoon. This card is made using the Cupcakes and Carousels suite and some SAB free Glimmer Paper. Just a word on the suite they put a little taste of a whole lot of Embellishments into one package instead of having to buy a whole lot of different Embellishments separate. I like that idea!
