Killam Stampers

I'm a Stampin Up! independent demonstrator. The question most people ask is: "So, what is it? What do you do?" Here's where you'll find out. What I do in my workshops, and what it's all about. I'm CRAZY about stamping and making cards, and I hope you'll catch whatever I have and run with it!

Name:
Location: Killam, Alberta, Canada

I'm a girl that wishes each day had twice as many hours in it. I dabble in a lot of things, I am an e-book publisher (www.booksunbound.com), a Stampin' Up! independent demonstrator, I build web pages, I read, I like to paint watercolors, do pastel drawings and pencil drawings. I love animals. I watch too much tv, play too many games on the computer, and don't get near enough sleep. Oh, I also have a full time job as an insurance broker (18yrs!)

New Christmas Cards!

This was a fun mix of watercolor and regular dye ink. I wet the watercolor paper, then inked the giant snowflake in "The Snowflake Spot" set, then spritzed the inked stamp, too, before stamping. I love the way the ink oozed and ran all over the paper. Then I stamped smaller snowflakes in lilac, white craft ink, and even embossed some with Hologram Highlights.

I also found this wonderful wide organza ribbon, which I stamped "Merry Christmas" on with Midnight Blue Stazon ink. Mounted everything on brilliant blue, added the snowman with a little silver cord. This might be our next workshop card...

November 1st workshop, Card One of Two



This is a fun card, with a cutout lined with acetate, sealed on the edges with sticky tape, and filled with glittery snow! It uses two Christmas stamp sets from Stampin' Up!, "It's Snow Time" and "Flaky Friends".

The snowman is colored with watercolor crayons, and the snowflaky background has the dots filled in with a white gel pen.

Don't you know a child who would love to get this card?

November 1st workshop, Card two of two



Using the Stampin' Up! "Touch of Nature", we stamped two layers of vellum and attached them to a glossy white base with matching green brads. We then mounted the green mat layer with gold photo corners. Think of how happy someone would be to receive this home-made, heartfelt Thank you!

Oct 25th, second Card



Here's the other card we'll be making. This card uses the Stampin' Up! sets "Lovely as a Tree" and "Wonderful Words". The trees have lots of diamond glitter that you can't really see well here, and we use Heat Embossing to emboss the word "Celebrate" in silver.

It's a beautiful, classy card. Perhaps it will inspire you to make your own Christmas cards this year!

Wednesday Workshop Projects-Oct 25


Here's what we'll be making in our next workshop:

Using the Stampin' Up! Woodcut Holly wheel, and Happiest of Holidays set, we'll make a spinner card like that shown here. The Pointsettia freely spins when the card is tilted. It's so much fun to play with, it's hard to put this one down.
Once you know the trick, spinner cards are easy and fun to make!

Cost for workshops - $5.00 Refunded if you order from the Stampin' Up! catalogue.
