Honey Bee Bundle

The Creative Inkster Honey Bee
One of my very favourite bundles in the 2020 Mini Catalogue is the Honey Bee Bundle. The stamps are “DistINKtive” meaning they have an added texture just with one ink! The paper that my sister demonstrator, Marcy Denning used is a free pack of paper (12 sheets of double-sided patterns) until March 31st. Thanks, Marcy!

Get the Honey Bee bundle #153792 $55.25 and some adhesive, and the Golden Honey DSP pack is yours! Contact me today to order yours!

Timeless Tulips

Pretty Timeless Tulips card created by my team member, Wendy McQuade for our team swap. Love how Wendy coordinated this bundle with the Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper from the Annual Catalogue featuring Petal Pink and Mossy Meadow colours. Do you like those stitched edges on the ovals? Made with out aptly named “Stitched Shapes” dies which come as a set of ovals, circles and squares #145372 which for 12 nesting dies at $41 is a great deal!

Parisian Beauty Bundle

My thanks to Leanne Livingstone, a sister demonstrator from Kindersley, SK. Beautiful Parisian Beauty Bundle on Petal Pink cardstock with Pool Party and Silver Foil accents. I love the new Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder that Leanne used on the bottom of the front panel and the Petal Pink ¼” Metallic Edge ribbon. A very elegant suite for your wedding and special event cards.

Valentine Treat Holder

For my Elmira Community Living Class, I’m handing out these treats to all the participants for their amazing work.  The topper was super easy: 5” x 2.5” piece of Real Red cardstock folded in half. I rounded the corners using the Detailed Trio Punch #146320 $27. Then the two hearts are punched using our two nesting heart punches #151292 $46 and the gorgeous From My Heart Speciality Designer Series Paper (12 sheets with foil accents) #151189 $20. The cello bags are retired and measure 2” x 8”. I’ll be duplicating this project with our Medium Clear envelopes (50 envelopes #102619 for $8.25) that will hold up to 6 chocolates. Looking forward to handing these out!

Best Dressed Suite

The Creative Inkster Best Dressed
Mother’s Day seems a long way off…but to paper crafters, who make Christmas card all year round, not so! Thanks to my friend and sister demonstrator, Elizabeth Green for this beautiful card showing us the versatility of the Best Dressed Suite. The bottle of perfume is the star of the show here…stamped on silver foil and heat embossed with Shimmer White embossing powder and then the centre coloured with a Stampin’ Blend and to top it all off, the Fine Tip Glue pen around the edges where Dazzling Diamonds glitter has been applied and left to dry. Whew! That’s just beautiful. That embossing folder on the mint macaron layer is a Sale-A-Bration freebie! With your min. $120 order, you can choose the Power of Hope bundle which is a gorgeous stamp set and the Stone 3D embossing folder. On my list! Thanks, Elizabeth!

A 2020 Calendar

The Creative Inkster Painted Poppies
Here’s my 2020 Desk Calendar. I’ve been off work for about 6 weeks now and when I return in February, this is the calendar I’m putting on my desk! So bright and cheery, don’t you think? Love that there’s space for a post-it note pad which is something I’m always using at work. Such an easy design as it’s just a simple easel card with the extra piece that the calendar layer sits on. Use your Tombow Liquid glue #110755 at $5.50 a bottle to adhere the segments together “forever”. My go-to adhesive for sure!

Painted Poppies Suite

The Creative Inkster Painted Poppies Suite
Love posting projects right after the launch of a new catalogue! So many fresh, new ideas and pretty patterns. My downline and friend Stacey Stark made this card to swap with our Inkster VIP stampers recently. It just oozes rich colours (Poppy Parade, Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry). With the Peaceful Moments Bundle #153824 $71, you get a 10 piece stamp set of a variety of greetings suitable for all your card sending needs plus a set of flower and leaf dies that match the Painted Poppies Stamp Set #151599 $31. I’m offering a class using these bundles on Feb 8th and 13th, so don’t miss out on signing up!

Parisian Blossoms Suite

The Creative Inkster Parisian Beauty
I just love this paper…in Paris the Pont des Arts bridge is covered in locks placed by lovers with messages. Many would throw the keys into La Seine river. This card reminds me of that practice (no longer allowed, by the way due to the weight of the metal on the structure) and how many people mean so much to us. I made this card using the Parisian Blossoms Suite of products for my team members at recent Stampin’ Social. The gold accent is a die cut from the suite together with the gold metallic edged pink ribbon and Parisian Flourish embossing folder on the cardbase. C’est magnifique, non?
