The new eclipse technique

Have you seen the new creative trend lately?  If you like to go on Pinterest, there are many samples for this new eclipse technique.  I loved the look and decided to try it out myself.  The demonstrators on my team that attended my monthly team meeting in September tried it as well.  They loved it.  I gave them a challenge to show me their versions and await their sample before we chose a winner!! The best card gets a prize!!!  I'll get my girls to pick out the winner since I'm sure the samples will all be amazing.  I am blessed with such talented, sweet demonstrators on my team.  Love to host those monthly meetings.  I anticipate for that monthly date night with these girls. If you would like to try the eclipse technique you can host a party with me or follow the steps below.  Here is a glimpse of the final product.  I used the hostess merry patterns stamp set that we have on promotion.  You can earn it for FREE too, just ask me for your hostess code and compile orders in September and October.   You can combine both months too:)  See the promotions details HERE.

Step 1

Stamp images on a piece of card stock.

I used cherry cobbler and old olive ink with the hostess stamp set Merry Patterns.

Step 2

Chose a word and place the Large letters framelits #141712 on your piece of stamped card stock.  Note you could do this technique with the large numbers framelits as well #140622.  The trick is that your letters need to be big to have an amazing affect.  The large letters in the annual catalogue are perfect for that.

Step 3

Pass your letters and card stock image in the big shot machine. Set aside the letters and adhere your card stock like the image below.

Step 4

This is an important step!  To have the best effect use the foam adhesive strips.  Those are thicker and will provide height to your letters.  If you use regular dimensionals, the letters won't have as much of the eclipse effect.

Step 5

Adhere the foam adhesive letters to the card, where they were cut out.  Shift them slightly to the right, just a "touch".  This creates that eclipse shadow.  And voila!  In my card below, I stamped the greeting "Merry Christmas" with the archival basic black ink.

I hope you enjoyed this new technique!   Don't forget to ask for your hostess code to earn this beautiful stamp set for FREE.  And if you shop with me, I have a VIP customer perk, you get to accumulate points for FREE products!!  Happy stamping!

Simple as Black & White

I don't know if it's cooler in your area but it sure is here.  Which reminds me that Fall is just around the corner and my favorite season.  Why?  I love the comfort food, knitted sweaters, the cooler breeze, apple picking with the girls and the change in the color of the Canadian Maple trees.  Today, I decided to change the Summer wreaths on my two front doors for my Fall wreaths.  The girls started school last Monday, I on the other hand have organized most of my Fall Classes.  You should check it out HERE and sign up before all the spots are filled up.  Plus, I added a kids/Tween class so pass the word around because my kids sure want a monthly kids class with new friends.  I have been creating in my studio a few Fall projects.  The kids and friends have been playing dress up which has inspired me to start creating for Halloween/Fall projects.  Here are a few pics.  Before you say anything, I had nothing to do with these costumes.  It was all them.  I just snap the shots and was laughing enough that my stomach was aching, aching in a good way! 

From left to right, here is Jeremy the Yo Man, Megan, Meg's Friend Madison an avatar and Lauren a mime


Jeremy, Megan and Madison.  So bizarre to have a little girl with black hair.

Here is Megan, she was my inspiration for this month's hostess gift.  I decided to go with a classic, simple yet elegant look = Black and White.  I have created a monogram hostess card box and it includes 4 cards with envelops. If you book a party with me in September, you get your personalized monogram box with 4 cards.  BOOK HERE!

I love the Lovely letters alphabet and the new vintage stamp set Established Elegance.  1 1/4" striped grosgrain ribbon in basic black is simply adorable, these ribbon are wonderful to use because they are wider than average ribbon and they coordinate with Stampin up! colors.  You can still sign up for my ribbon club HERE, check them out.  To get a few meters of all 11 colors.  This card is truly simple but what makes in stand out is the Elegant Lines textured embossing folder embossed with the big shot on the whisper white cardstock.  I truly love the products used and hope my September hostesses will love them two.

Established Elegance comes in 3 different ways:   #122530 (wood) #122532 (clear mount)  and if you love digital scrapbooking # 127424 for only 7.95.  which you can order in my storeCan't book a party with me in September than look at the product list to order these supplies to make yours at home.  Happy Monday! 

Supplies used for the monogram box and cards :

Stamp set: Lovely letters alphabet #115030(w), Established Elegance #122530 (w) #122532 (c)

Ink:  Basic Black #101179

Hostess Gift from Convention

Busy busy as a bee, as I was uploading pictures on my new computer, I realized that I have been very busy:  Convention, Vegas, Tony and I celebrated our 10th anniversary in July, finally had my open house with the launch of the new catalogue, we attended Tony's uncle's 60th birthday party and his cousin's wedding and I celebrated my birthday last Friday.  Thanks to all of you for posting happy birthday on Facebook.  Actually, if the Facebook wishes were stamped, handmade cards, I would have had 150 of them:) pretty impressive! On the downside, summer is half done and we haven't been around, Tony and I made a list of 30 things that needed to be done around the house.  We realized that our busy schedule was not going to cut it.  So my dad is helping us out and started today to do the things on the list.  I am so grateful and the girls are super excited that he's around too:)  I love watching the girls pitching around and helping him out. 

I have so many projects that I want to show you.  Having all these events to attend in July made me stamp a lot. And now it's time to post some of them here.  First, I wanted to post my hostess box and matching cards that I presented at convention.  I created the box from a soap box from a hotel and just changed the size to fit a 3×3 card.  Simple Right? 

If you would like one of these, there are 4 options to receive Kim's Hostess Set:

1- Book a Party with me

2- Place a online order with me + Bonus get VIP service

3- Join my team, I would love to share this opportunity with you

4- Place a comment on my blog and I will draw 1 of these

Good Luck!

Personally for this project I preferred using the marker because I colored in the images and left the bee out of the stamp set to replace it with a butterfly

Products used:

Stamp set: Kindness Matters #122900(W), #122902(c), Nature's Pace #122660(w) #122662(c) ou en francais Au rythme de la nature #124830(w) #124832(c)

Yes! September is here -Why am I so excited?!


 I am so excited that September is here!!!  Why? because I’m happy to present you with the best mini catalogue ever….Stampin’up has made me very proud to be part of their family.  If you haven’t received one from me, stop by my studio or view it here.


Here are a few  Highlights: 

p.6-7 they have gorgeous new Sweet Treat Cups and Sweet Centers stamp set.  Best of all they coordinate with the 1 3/4" punch.  Do you want to hand out the cuttest treats for Halloween?  You can fill the cups with candies, spiders (what ever your imagination desires)  The cups are only $3.95 for 12 … what a great deal!

on p. 12-13 it’ s fall extravaganza!  Autumn Splendor  coordinates to perfection with Autumn Meadows designer series paper.  And the Big Shot Dies  Table Setting will have your home decorated with elegance for thanksgiving! You can view one of my sample cards here.

p. 20-21 Stampinup textured Impressions folder Petals-A-Plenty is one of my favorite folders.  Check out my card here

Again I get super excited when products coordinate. They really got me with the Ornament Punch & Delightful Decorations stamp set on pages 24-36. How fun and easy, my kids have been creating Christmas cards already! 

But what my kids were really excited about is the BUILD-A-BEAR products on pages 34-37. You can purchase the stamps, the Big Shot Dies, the designer papers…send me your kids wish list or even your own! 

There’s so much more I could say….you will be seeing lots of samples on my blog. 

And if you are as excited about the mini than me and want it all !!!  then just book a party:

Demonstrators were able to order theirs starting yesterday…and of course mine is on it’s way!  I just can’t wait to see the UPS man at my door so I can show you samples on my blog.
