My printer got a little excited so I ended up with extra coupon books! Rather than toss them, I’m sending one to anyone who places an order this month. These 16 coupons are worth well over $175 and are only available while supplies last! I’ve even added a little bonus extension to the June deal! #craftygram #coupons #craftdeal #craftydeal #CraftyMedic #StampinUp #StampinUpCanada #StampinUpDemo #StampinUpDemonstrator #cardmaking #handmadecards #scrapbooking #papercrafts #craftsupplies via Instagram https://instagr.am/p/CCPVnG0JXYZ/

I wish I could say I’m taking the day off to celebrate, but I’m at work. None the less, I’ll celebrate Canada Day in the best way I know how, a card! I love this mishmash of dies and stamps from throughout the catalogue, all tied together with a theme of red, white, and a little bit of sparkle. Happy Canada Day! #canadaday #stampingdiversity #stampingaroundtheworld #craftygram #CraftyMedic #StampinUp #StampinUpCanada #StampinUpDemo #StampinUpDemonstrator #cardmaking #handmadecards #scrapbooking #papercrafts #craftsupplies via Instagram https://instagr.am/p/CCGrqsXFxKW/

Pride 2020 Blog Hop


Welcome to my Pride 2020 Blog Hop! Some of you may have seen my #stampingdiversity posts before, and this is a fun way to share that and have a virtual Pride parade around the world! I've invited many of my demonstrator friends to take part, so don't forget to check out everyone else's posts at the end and leave them some comments as well.

My project was inspired by the awesome rainbow glimmer paper I just got. I saw this and knew I had to make something bright for Pride with it! I paired die cut letters popped up on foam adhesive sheets with critters built from the Hippo Happiness stamp set to bring a light uniqueness and color in too.


I mean a uni-hippo? How cute is that! Here's a look at how I built the backgrounds too...


What a super easy way to add a pop of color, glimmer, glitz, or patterns to your cards! Let's see what everyone else has made, click along to the other participants to see and leave them some happy comments!

Sketch Challenge #1

I've been running challenges over on my Facebook group "Creating with The Crafty Medic" for a while now, and I thought I'd open it up to my blog readers too! Today I posted a sketch challenge, which is always great fun. Here's a look at the sketch...


And here's my take on it! I love the Forever Greenery suite, and some white on white texture with gold accents just makes it pop don't you think?

One of my favourite quick and easy techniques is to use markers to color in images. Rehydrate the ink before stamping by breathing in it and you’re images will pop! If you live this technique too, head over to “Creating with the Crafty Medic” to post your creation using it and you will be entered for a prize! #craftygram #tipsandtechniques #quicktips #creatingwiththecraftymedic #craftymediccreativechallenge #CraftyMedic #StampinUp #StampinUpCanada #StampinUpDemo #StampinUpDemonstrator #cardmaking #handmadecards #scrapbooking #papercrafts #craftsupplies via Instagram https://instagr.am/p/CB51af1nsY-/

I had a request for grad cards for boys, so here we go! Using the faux suede technique I shared last year I made a dark background for the details to really pop from! #craftygram #gradcards #grad2020 #justjade #CraftyMedic #StampinUp #StampinUpCanada #StampinUpDemo #StampinUpDemonstrator #cardmaking #handmadecards #scrapbooking #papercrafts #craftsupplies via Instagram https://instagr.am/p/CB3ncQFJFZU/

Today was a big day for Canada Post! I sent out all my team achiever packets, customer thank you, and a bunch of challenge and event prizes. Took two trips to drop everything off! Among them were these notecards I made for my team achievers. I love how they turned out! So much texture and depth, and they’re all different because of the amazing gold laser cuts. #raincoastcrafters #craftygram #CraftyMedic #StampinUp #StampinUpCanada #StampinUpDemo #StampinUpDemonstrator #cardmaking #handmadecards #scrapbooking #papercrafts #craftsupplies via Instagram https://instagr.am/p/CByY6BzJ23r/
