Stampendous Hop



It’s hopping time!  This week, The Ribbon Resource has teamed up with Stampendous to create some fun projects featuring stamps and ribbon!  Over the last couple of days, members from our team have shared some really beautiful projects, and today, it’s my turn!  If you have ever popped by Scrappy Canuck Studios before, you will know that I am no stranger to stamping.  In fact, it’s not only how I got started in crafting, but it is also what at least half of my blog posts are about.  So I am always up for a new stamp, especially when I get to team it up with some of my favourite ribbon!

Once I chose the paper I wanted to work with (this happens to be from DCWV), I stamped 3 of the Stampendous stamps on white cardstock and coloured them up with Copic Markers to match the paper.  I then took my trusty CutterBee scissors and fussy cut each image (I never get tired of fussy cutting – some people colour to relax…I fussy cut)!  I then started to assemble my pieces, using some foal adhesive for each of the stamped images to make them pop off the page.


Then I hit my ribbon stash, and I found some 1/4″ Silk ribbon (Silver – SK-4-31) that I thought would be a great compliment to the bright yellows and greens in the stamps and paper.  I tied the ribbon onto a large paper clip at the top, looping the ribbon twice for a full effect.  I slipped the paper clip onto a banner on the card and I was all done!Stampendous-front

This card reminds me so much of the fresh colours that we will be seeing in a few months up here in Canada.  It is usually a late spring for us up here, but it will be worth the wait!

Today, the team at The Ribbon Resource have three ladies up with projects (including me).  Make sure you pop by to see what they were up to with other Stampendous and The Ribbon Resource products!

Thanks for stopping by!

May Flowers challenge

Swing-fullIt’s challenge day over at Tiddly Inks, and this time we thought we would go with some flowery goodness.  We all love those flowers don’t we?!!  So perfect for so many occasions too, so  the next challenge is… May Flowers!
Swing-closeupGrab your favourite Tiddly Inks stamp or digital image and think along the lines of..
Images/stamps with flowers, making your own flowers,
flower themed papers/ embellies!
(**remember…We love to see any new creation, a card, 3D project, journal page etc
but you must use a Tiddly Inks stamp or image to be eligible for the prize**)
I decided to work with –Wryn Swinging By – a newer release by Christ.  A lot of my cards need to go in the mail, so I like to keep things flat. So while I love making handmade flowers, most of my cards will not include them!  But I do love to sneak the flowers in there, especially through the use of patterned paper.  It’s an easy way to make so many different cards and images fit the theme!  I pulled out my Doodlebug paper for this one, but what are your favourite floral papers?
We sure would love to see you join in on the challenge, and don’t forget to pop on over to the blog to see the amazing inspiration by all of the DT members!
Thanks for stopping by!

New images at Tiddly Inks

It’s always a good day when there are new images at Tiddly Inks, and you won’t be disappointed with these cuties!


Today, I wanted to share this darling one called Poppy Pixie.  This was a fun one for me to colour because most of the detail is in the flowers and background, as opposed to on the little character.  I wanted the little pixie to pop out a bit, so I decided to go with a dark colour for her hair, and then accent that with the ribbon.  Copics were my tool of choice for this card, and the image was coloured to match the Pink Paislee Soiree paper.

Garden-closeupThe sentiment is hand lettered, although I wish I had used a thinner pen.  I think overtakes the cute image a bit!

Anyway, you really need to go and check out all the darling creations with these new digis Inks over at the Tiddly Blog.  I actually have two more card over there too (these images we so cute that I couldn’t stop colouring them), and although I will share them her at SCS a little later, go ahead and take a sneak peak!

Have a great Tuesday, and thanks for stopping by!


She’s got wings and she knows how to use them!


Good morning everyone!  It’s Saturday, and here at SCS, that usually means I get to share some inspiration for the weekly challenge at Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps!!

This week our hostess is Sheri and her challenge is FLOWERS!! So create a card, scrapbook page or altered item with a Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamp that features flowers in some way! So in the image itself, in the patterned paper, add flower diecuts or flower embellishments!! Woohoo! We love to see flowers!!

IMG_0361For this little card, I decided to draw in my flowers!  I love this cute stamp from KKS’s “Pretty Little PIxies” set.  There is actually a really cute single flower stamp that goes with this cutie, but I thought it would be fun to make it look like she was growing a whole garden, complete with a sentiment.  She’s a pixie after all – and they are magical little beings, aren’t they?

We are ALSO sponsoring the challenge over on the Kit and Clowder online colouring community!!! Their challenge is WINGS so if you create a card featuring FLOWERS AND WINGS, you can enter it into BOTH challenges for DOUBLE the chances to WIN!!!
