Alphabet Press Stamp Club

I missed out on posting last week's Creative Wednesday. I wanted to catch up on the missed post on the weekend but I got hit by another migraine. I'm finally well enough to get out of bed today just in-time for this week's Creative Wednesday post.
Alphabet Press Stamp Club Card by Ida Chan Stampin' Up! Vancouver
We used a fun embossing folder stamping technique last week to make this card. Sometimes you never know what else you can do with your embossing folder other than putting it through the Big Shot machine.

In this card, we used the Six-Sided Sampler bundle that comes with a coordinating punch. I also used a small sliver of washi tape in the background to add a bit of texture and subtle yellow color. Another quick and fun card!

Weekly Deals: Did you know that each Tuesday Stampin' Up! releases a list of Weekly Deals that runs to the following Tuesday. Check out this week's weekly deal here!

An Evergreen Wednesday

Happy Wednesday!! In Vancouver today, the air is crisp, the sun is shining and creative juices are flowing!
This week's Creative Wednesday card is actually the make and take project we did last month at my Holiday Open House.
#Evergreen Christmas Card by Ida Chan #StampinUp Vancouver
The card is a quick and simple 5-minute card featuring the Evergreen stamp set on Pool Party and Island Indigo colors. The trick with is card is to remember to stamp the images on the cardstock first then do the Big Shot die cut with the Apothecary Accents framelits and finally Textured Emboss the polka dots.

The designer series paper used here is the Winter Frost Designer Paper Series Stack. ($8.50 for 48 sheets)
It really is unneccesary to spend more than 5 minutes on a Christmas card when you got so many to make each year! Keep it simple and this year you'll have a stress-free holiday season.

Painter's Tape with Beautifully Baroque

Happy Hump Day! That means it's Creative Wednesday posting!
This week I'm showcasing one of the cards we made last week at our monthly Stamp Club meeting.
Beautifully Baroque Painter's Tape by Ida Chan #StampinUp Vancouver
As usual, we learn a new stamping technique in our monthly Stamp Club. This month we learned the Painter's Tape technique to create the subtle background of this card. We then stamped the Beautifully Baroque stamp 3 times in different colors, cut out smaller pieces of the stamped image and layer on top of each other to give the Beautifully Baroque image a bit of dimension.

Colors used on this card are: Daffodil Delight, Midnight Muse, and the new incolor Pistachio Pudding.
