I received a beautiful card from a fellow demonstrator in a recent Christmas card swap, and I decided to have a go at creating it myself, particularly the stunning birch background which looks for all the world as if it is three-dimensional. I am so pleased with the result – it REALLY looks like woodgrain!

The birch background stamp is so minimal, but creates such a striking effect, especially when you use the Stamparatus to stamp it twice with different ink colours (I used Gray Granite and White). I stamped first in white, then cleaned the stamp, moved my cardstock up a fraction of an inch, and stamped again in gray.

The Nature’s Beauty stamp set makes a great companion for the Birch stamp. Featuring detailed imagery of woodland creatures, this stamp set is terrific not just for the holidays but for year-round projects such as birthdays, thank yous, and other occasions. You can colour the stamped images or leave them blank as I have done here. Best of all, Stampin’ Up! is donating $4 from every Nature’s Beauty sale to mental health organizations around the world. Here in Canada, the funds are going to the Center for Addiction and Mental Health.

Have you made any projects with either of these stamps? Share them in the comments below! I love to see your creations!

Happy Stampin’!

I’m so excited to be participating in Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlight event for September 2019. The theme is Encouragement.

This card is for my dad. When I was growing up, we spent a lot of time in a beautiful, relaxing location just like this. I hope this card reminds him of those good memories we built together!

I used a few different stamps to create my card. The Birch background stamp is one of my recent favourites – it’s so quick and easy to create a striking background on any project. Then I created the lakeside scene using the Waterfront stamp set. This is such a beautifully versatile stamp set, where you can create any scene you can imagine! Finally, I added an image from A Good Man, coloured in with my Blends markers and then cut out to attach to the card.

I hope you like my project and Vote for my card! You can do so here:


At the end of the voting the top ten winners will get the chance to be part of an international blog hop that will happen at the end of September. I would love to take part in the hop, so I would really appreciate it if you would visit the gallery and vote for my card. Have a look at all the amazing creations in the gallery, because you’ll get to vote for your favourite five projects. I hope mine is one of them!
