Pearlescent Leaves of Autumn

Card116I don’t know if it is too early to talk about the Leaves of Autumn or ….. judging by the weather,  we might be right on time! Weather or Not….This card has captured the swirl and magic of what comes with Autumn.

To get the shimmering colour to this Card we looked to our best selling product at Creative Festival this past week….  “Pearlescent Watercolors” This is a set of 21 marvelous watercolours and the sky, trees even the land & sea are not the limit when it comes to adding dimension, sparkle or pizazz to any Card.

Thank you ….. CreativFestival 17

17050303_FWhat a SHOW !!!
What  a BIG Thank You !! …  we wish to give to everyone. To all the people that came to our booth at the CreativFestival, you are the GREATEST . We met lots of new people and hugs & Hi’s to many others.

Congratulations go to Becky & Lynne the CreativFestival (Fri & Sat) draw winners. They picked up lots of “loot” with their winners coupon…..  It is always hard to decide what to pickup at a show and we try to bring you a good selection of all we have to offer here at the store.

17050305_FMany customers called/emailed ahead and had their shopping list requests set aside, we also want to thank you too. This works out very well. We do not like to say….. “yes we have what your looking for but…. its back at the store”

Our booth was set up a little differently this year with the open end and it really had a “more room” feel.

Sandy held down the “make & take” booth, with Betty on the floor looking after everyone and filling in for breaks. Rose-Marie taught in the show classroom each morning and then demonstrated and answered “How to??” questions, all day long . 17050304_F

Several people made mention of all the wonderful cards on display on the top of the spinners and down the sides…. if there was a card that you wanted another look at, get back to us and we will try to post it on the website under [Samples]

Don’t forget to come and visit us over the summer or go online anytime
Cheers from Rose-Marie & Tom

Reminder – ScrapFest in Kitchener

Rose-Marie is getting ready to pack the trailer and headout002 to Scrapfest Kitchener for the spring edition of this great Paper Arts Show…. this year celebrating 10 years of Crop/Scrap & Stamping…. but she needed a break. She started playing around with some of the products she would be bringing to the show….

This Happy Birthday Card is simply done to show you you don’t have to go to a lot of work to get stunning results. Stamp B1128 Happy Birthday goes well with the results of a Precision Cutting Die… FRA-DIE-09939 Stitched Daisy Pair.

001but she didn’t stop there….. when she grabbed another Precision Cutting Die this time FRA-DIE-10067 Kokeshi Japanese Paper Doll. (and we are bringing lots of these to the show) used stamp H654 Rocky Mountains to set the background and A965 Sending Hugs SM in the front with one of the One Liner Stamps A965 Sending Hugs SM … she has created a “WOW !!” Card.
You can too with these and other stamps & supplies from Frog’s Whiskers Ink.
See you at the Show…….. PS if you miss Kitchener then don’t forget the Creativ Festival   April 28-29, 2017 at the International Centre Entrance 1

 

And the Daylight Savings Card Contest Winners is ….

Card104Spring has sprung and so has the clock…. (that hour we have lost never seems to come back no matter how many Falls we have). Congratulations this month, goes out to Christine of Belleville for making the best “time” card for the March Card Challenge. Christine has been a regular contributor to our monthly card challenges and has earned 1’st place with this marvelous entry.

Christine has used H685 Oak Branch as the background, with the popular  L737 Birch Trees and K19036 Summer Meadow stamp to enhance the forest.  With a mixture of butterflies and birds dotting the branches, a time piece rules over all. Yes all things happen with “time” and this card has put “time” forever out of place with the “wacky” clock.
Congratulations Christine… your cards are well done. Keep them coming.

Card103What better way to use Card making than for Valentine Cards…..Congratulations this month go to Christine of Belleville, ON. with her Valentine Vine Card for our Valentine Card Contest.
Christine does wonderful work and this card holds true….. with “love” hanging on the branches like vines of a tree. Who says a Birch Bark tree can’t have vines? because this one looks natural.
Christine has used the popular L737 Birch Trees stamp and F523 Lily of the Valley as two separate pictures layered together as one. This simple effect draws you into the card and ready to pick the ripe hearts just dangling on the Birch vines.  Congratulations Christine… your cards are well done and deserve Top Spot!!
