Stampin' Up! Card Ideas from Canadian Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Sandi MacIver

My 2016 Favorites

Happy New Year.  The first day of a New Year always feels so fresh to me.  A time to set some new goals and look ahead, but it’s also fun to look back on the past year.

Today I wanted to share some of my favourite card posts from this last year.  You can click on the “card details” link under each one to go to the blog post.

Birthday Blooms Stampin Up by Sandi

My favourite January card is this pretty little 10 minute or less card created with the Birthday Blooms Stamp Set – card details here:

In August, we demonstrators got to preorder from the upcoming Holiday Catalogue and I fell in love with this “Star of Light” bundle.  I shared this Double Z Fold Card….Apparently you liked it too because it was my MOST PINNED card last year – check out the blog post and video here:

Blooms and Wishes from Stampin UP card by Sandi at

In November, Stampin Up came out with a new Die set that had stitches around the outside of the shapes – be still my heart!   Stitched Shapes Framelits combined with the Blooms and Wishes stamp set was my favourite for this month, and judging by the pins – many of yours too.  Details here:

Owl Always Love you with Cozy Critters Stampin Up stamp set, card by Sandi at

and in December I couldn’t resist playing with the two little owls from the Cozy Critters Host Stamp Set in the Holiday catalogue……so adorable!… – blog post is here:

Funny looking back through all my posts, I don’t think I have one specific stamping style.  I like to try new things, learn new techniques and I think that changes your style.  One thing I did notice,  I got more creative with my photography,  that was a goal of mine in 2016, so I achieved that.

In 2017 one of my goals is to share more videos with you and as I work on my blogging schedule, I know I will achieve that goal.  So, thank you for following me, for leaving me such kind comments and for supporting my Stampin Up Business,  I’m so grateful.

Here’s to 2017 and lots of fun stamping and learning together.

Happy New Year my Stamping Friends:
