Hey, Hey... Happy Wednesday Stampers!  

Today I had taped a video for this post...but YouTube would not play nice.  I tried uploading the video four times and each time it would error. Frustration got the best of me and I deleted the video from my device. 

So pictures only for today's post....but that is ok....cause this is a Simple Stamping post!  

Today's featured product is that Piece of Cake #148610 stamp set and the coordinating Cake Builder Punch #148525 

Both of these items are on the Last Chance Product List so get them while you can....

Here are my cards: 

This first card features a strip of the Birthday Bonanza dsp and the hinge step stamping technique. 

 This next one features simple stamping and building the cake with stamp and ink. 

This next one is a bright cheery card with a banner made of the Birthday Bonanza DSP
And the final card is a snap with the Happy Birthday die cut doing all the work and using the cake as an embellishment! 

Here is a close up look at the stamp set and the punch:

Wednesday, April 22, 2020....Up-line inspiration with Ornate Garden DSP and a video.....

Happy Wednesday Stampers!  

It is warming up in Winterpeg and forecast gives promise of double-digit temperatures for the remainder of the week- woohoo!  

I have a couple of items I want to mention before we get to today's project. 

1.  I hope you are all safe and well in these strange times.  I miss you all very much and cannot wait until we are on the other side of this situation and I can see your smiling faces around my stamp table again.  Until that day arrives, we are continuing with online classes.  Check out my website for details on that: and click on the events tab

2.  The retiring list comes out later this afternoon.  It will tell us what (besides the 2018-2019 in-colors) will be retiring and available only while supplies last.  I will be posting the list as soon as it goes live on my blog and on Facebook.  I urge you not to hesitate if you want any of this the past, things sell out in minutes once this list goes live.  To shop go to my website: and click on the shop now tab- your order will ship direct to your home (or whatever delivery address you put in) on to today's project! 

Today's cards were inspired by my up-line Denise Willerton. Here is her card: 

I basically used the same layout and flipped it vertically,  Changed the entire color scheme, added foil mats and ribbon.

Don't you just LOVE the early release Ornate Garden Suite!!!  I am totally obsessed with it ( as if you did not already know that by past blog posts Ha Ha.  

Here are my cards and the video is below: is the video:

April 17, 2020... Tropical Oasis CASE.....

Happy Friday Stampers! 

Another week is almost gone.....hopefully bringing us closer to warmer temperatures and long sunny days!  

Speaking of sunny days, today's post features products that will make you dream of sunny days....all from the Tropical Oasis Suite found on page 39 of the Annual Catalog. 

Now, I have a confession to make.....I totally CASED a GORGEOUS card off Pinterest, back in early March, and I have just spent over an hour trying to find the original card so I could give credit to the designer....however no luck.  So if you know who designed the original, please email me and let me know at 

Here is my card:  (more card samples at the bottom of this post too!)

I used a different embossing folder than the original card as well as a different greeting.....not sure about the cardstock I said, it has been a while.  

Don't forget this beautiful suite of products is only here until the end of May or while supplies lasts.  If you live in Canada
and want to purchase you can go to my website here:

Here are the gorgeous products up close: 

And here are some more card samples!
