7091502_FCardClass 1 – Bittersweet Wreath –  These Autumn cards use stamps from our older Fall Collection together with our new additions including the Fence Row and Thanksgiving Blessing. Fall colours and stamps- one of my favourite combinations.


7091503_FCardClass 2 – Canadian Christmas with Moose
– We will be Celebrating our 150th Birthday with our Canadian Christmas Cards Collection (Yes Already) These cards can easily be made into cards for other occasions by changing the wording

 

7091504_FCardClass 3 – Happy Halloween – Halloween is Coming with black cats, pumpkins and mason jars. One of these cards makes a surprise bookmark, great for a friend feeling under the weather.

More than Just Cards

Card141April Showers bring May Flowers….. I guess this year it has been May, June, July, August showers….. so we should have lots of flowers all over the place.

Maria of Peterborough, ON…. has noticed the flowers and she had some fun creating these two Cards…. but not on paper.

She writes, “Attached are pictures of two coasters I made using two of your stamps:  Hibiscus H30370, and Sketchy Poppies K31019. Each was stamped onto a coaster with Archival Ink and colored with Copic markers, after, they were sealed and sprayed with a waterproof spray.”
Well done Maria. So everyone, go ahead and experiment…. who says “Paper” is the only way to go….

Canada Day Contest Winner

Card137.jpgWhat happened to the summer of 2017…. everyone is talking about Back-to-School…..  Not us.!!!
We’re still in Cottage Country Mode here

Take the winner of the Canada Day Card challenge…. A great example of “It’s Still summertime and don’t rush it!!”

Congratulations to Karen of Orleans, ON.  and her winning Card that she sent us. She parked her trailer right by the lake, in a very peaceful spot.
I am sure the fire is crackling and  a few fish are in the pan as our campers wait for dark to descend. Then the Local Parks Committee can set off the Annual fireworks display.  A perfect Canada Day Celebration… eh??

Send us your card creation for our monthly card contests. The winner gets a $20.00 store/show/online credit. Not every fancy card wins, not every dazzling card wins…. the Card that wins is the one that feels right for the occasion. Please note that your Card…. must incorporate one or more of Frog’s Whiskers Ink or Rosewood stamps or products in the design of the card.

In our next Card Challenge…..  for Sept…. Lets take a look at what you can do with Fall Fairs, a stable event for most rural and urban communities.  It doesn’t matter if it is a “Fun on the Rides” or a “Fall Preserves 1’st Prize” Card….  it must express the essence of the Card Contest theme

Looking Forward to seeing Your Cards
