Hello fellow stampers and paper crafters! Welcome to my new blog, where I will be showcasing my handmade cards, scrapbook layouts, mini albums and other paper crafting projects. I’m Barb Tripps, an Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator from Vancouver Island, British Columbia in wonderful Canada! I have been using Stampin Up products for over 10 years and have been a demonstrator for almost as long. Making beautiful cards and sharing them with my customers is truly my passion, and I’m excited to share that love with people here on the blog.
To get things started I’m sharing a card that I created using the wonderful Number of Years photopolymer stamp set and dies from the current Occasions Catalog. I started with a base of Blackberry Bliss cardstock and used the Large Numbers stamps, along with versa mark and clear embossing powder to create a unique and subtle background for my card. I then used one of the adorable Tea Lace Paper Doilies, cut in half with a strip of Mint Macaron lace ribbon in between and layered under my stamps. Some lovely pearls finished off the card!
I hope you enjoyed my first card share! Check back regularly as I share more.
