Ida is Moving!

It is with great sadness to announce that I will be moving to London, UK in June 2014. That being said, I will be discontinuing my involvement with Stampin' Up! as a demonstrator when my status as a demo is dropped (quarterly quota not met). It has been an exceptionally fun 4 years crafting with you and inspiring you all. I thank you all for your loyalty and I hope you will continue your crafting path and stay creative!
I have been delaying this announcement because it is painful for me to let go of Stampin' Up! and of the joy it has brought to me these past 4 years. I have learned a lot from many of you and there are still plenty to learn. We will have to keep in touch!
There are memorable moments that I'll never forget and never would have gained without Stampin' Up! And of course the amazing friends I've met. Thank you Stampin' Up!

Simple Thank You Tag

Tags are making such a comeback in our paper crafting world. The new Angled Tag Topper Punch from the Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog makes speedy tag with just one punch. The size of the punch takes 2"x 4.25" cardstock. With this card, I used Very Vanilla 8.5"x11" cardstock. Each sheet can make 8 tags.

Place cards for Tom and Ben

The next reveal of my 8 projects is the embossed place cards. These place cards were not shown in the Scrapbook & Cards Today blog post.
Place cards and party favor bags by Ida Chan #StampinUp #PartyPartyBundle
I kept my place cards simple to draw a natural vintage theme. The whisper white cards stock was first embossed with the woodgrain textured embossing folder. I then heat embossed the woodgrain emboss with gold embossing powder.
To finish off, I used the cards that were perforated to create quick label name cards and stamped the Hello, please take a seat stamp from the bundle.

This Party, Party bundle comes in handy for putting together quick creative parties.

I was required to use items from the Party, Party Bundle. They come in 2 colors.

Decked out Invitations

To continue on with the rest of the 8 projects I was required to create using the Party, Party Bundle, I am showing you a card today as my Creative Wednesday post. I made an over the top 6"x6" party invitation.

Party Bundle invitations by Ida Chan #StampinUp
I dissected in half the tiny treat bags from the bundle to make a cute craft envelop. One bag was enough to make 2 cards. I slipped the invitation card into the envelop and finished off the card.
The Always Artichoke mini envelop was created using the Envelop Punch Board.
I really love the stickers and labels that come with the bundle. It adds quick finishing touches to the projects.

Come back later this week as I reveal the rest of the projects.

Fortune Cookies for the New Year

Kung Hei Fat Choy! Happy Year of the Horse!

The first Saturday of each month the blog features Stampin' Up! products and creative projects by the selected Stampin' Up! demonstrator. The post is always accompanied by a giveaway, so make sure you check each month!

I was required to use items from the Party, Party Bundle. They come in 2 colors.

In the kit, there are 10 cute craft treat bags and sheets of 6"x6" Designer Series Paper. Just in time for Chinese New Year, I turned the 6"x6" DSP into fortune cookies and the treat bags for hostess favours. You can do so much more with this kit. I'll show you more over the next few days.

For the record, fortune cookies aren't Chinese. They were created in North America.

Shop Around Faux Tiling

Posting here today is the second card made in the stamp technique club class.
#FauxTiling card by Ida Chan #StampinUp Vancouver
On the Very Vanilla cardstock, I used the Shop Around wheel to faintly stamp a background using Crumb Cake Classic ink. I then gave the card a vintage and worn look with a crumpled piece of crumb cake cardstock on the back. Adding more depth, I embossed the card base using the Stripes Textured Impression Embossing Folder. A quick and simple card.

Open Sea Stamp Club card

My most anticipated class each month is always the stamp technique club. Tomorrow night is our class and one of the cards we will be making is with the Open Sea stamp set.

Open Sea by Ida Chan #StampinUp Vancouver
At this stamp club class, we will be learning the faux tiling technique. I love integrating faux tiling and vintage stamping to create a worn out vintage image. With the Open Sea stamp set, the end creation comes out to a masculine card that is fit for any man.

Early Valentine's card

Happy Belated New Year! 
It's been a whirlwind time off as I had to craft A LOT within 2 weeks. I anticipated no crafting but due to a certain request, I had to craft. Those projects will be revealed later.
In the meantime, here is this week's Creative Wednesday Project
#Valentine's Day card by Ida Chan #StampinUp #Bermuda Bay Celebration Kit
You may have noticed that the Occasions Catalog was released on January 3, 2014. The exclusive items run until June 1. The supplies used for this week's card are from new catalog. The designer series paper is from the Bermuda Bay Celebration Add-On Kit. This kit has so many unique items that you can make more than just banners and tags.

What else is new on this card is the large ampersand textured impressions embossing folder. This is one of my favourite items from the new catalog. I have more to share! Hopefully I can get around to it before next week's Creative Wednesday. See you soon!
