Happy Halloween


This fabulous card was made by my eldest daughter and myself.  She made the Pumpkins using the Stampin’ Up! Large Oval Punch (1 ¾ x  ”). 


They’re a cheeky bunch of Pumpkins.  So easy to make and so so effective for Halloween.  Their faces are just cut out from Basic Black Cardstock and stuck on using SNAIL Adhesive.  Alternatively you can use the Multi Purpose Liquid Glue.

We used the following…
Card Stock – Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie & Concord Crush

Accessories – Large Oval Punch (1 ¾ x  ”), Signo White Gel Pen

Trendy Trees

I just love this cute set. 
There so much you can do with it.  Little thank you cards, notes to friends just to say hi. With autumn underway it was definitely the inspiration I needed to make this cute little card.
Trendy Trees
The set incorporates the Two-Step Stamin’ technique.  However,  you can do as I did, and stamp your tree trunks onto the base card.
The base card is Soft Suede, with Whisper White.  The tree trunks are stamped in Soft Suede ink and the tree tops in Melon Mambo and Rich Razzleberry.  I love this colour combo.
The funky tree tops were stamped onto Stampin’ Ups’! vellum and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder just to give it a gleam.  The picture doesn’t do it justice.  I trimmed round the tree tops using my paper snips, and attached them to the base card using Mini Glue Dots to give it a slight 3D effect.
All the items used making this card can be purchased directly from me.  Contact me to place your order.

Take a Bauble and…..

Turn it upside down! And voila!  A hot air balloon!  Isn’t it just fab?

Big Bold Birthday

The bauble is from Contempo Christmas, and the rest of the card is made up from Big Bold Birthday.  Big Bold Birthday has all the elements to make fabulous cupcakes – and cupcakes are so in right now.  Have you see some of the fabulous wedding cakes there are that are surrounded by gorgeous cupcakes?  Awesome.
Oh yeah, back to the card…. 
The Balloon basket is from the base of the cupcake stamped in Melon Mambo, the clouds are the top of the cupcake stamped in Pink Pirouette and the balloon is in the new in-color Concord Crush.  This has fast become one of my favourite colours!

Up, Up and Away!!

Demonstrator Training - Contempo Christmas

Each year Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators are able to attend training sessions which helps us bring you all the delights of Stampin’ Up’s! products and how to use them.
During our training we get to make projects too!  It’s great fun, this year there were about 70 0f us at the one I attended back in September in High Wycombe.
I couldn’t post up the project we made there before this,  as the items were from the new Idea Book & Catalogue (IB&C) but as the new (IB&C) is now here….here is the project.

HW Training

Isn’t it gorgeous?  I might just have to make this my Christmas Card design this year.
I just love the colours Cherry Cobbler & Early Espresso with Whisper White cardstock and Ribbon.  We used the brand new stamp set called Contempo Christmas which is just fabulous.  You might just be able to see that the bauble is standing out a little.  No that’s not the use of Stampin’ Dimensionals, it’s a little bit of 3D!

HW Training 1

Clever Huh? There is a fabulous new punch that goes with the Bauble in the new slimline punch design.
If you are interested in any of the items used in this project, you are able to purchase them through me.

Here comes clear mount.....

Yes thats right, Stampin' Up's very own clear mount stamp sets have arrived in the UK!!!

Stampin' Up! now offers repositionable, clear-mount rubber stamps, in addition to our award-winning wood-mount rubber stamps! These new clear-mount stamps are designed to maintain the unbeatable image quality you love about traditional Stampin' Up! stamps, while at the same time offering the flexibility, ease of use, and storability inherent in repositionable rubber stamps.

These are not acrylic or polymer stampers.  They are they same red rubber stamps that you'll find on Stampin' Up's! wood mounted stamps.  So you'll still get that sharp, crisp, clean image that you have come to love with Stampin' Up's! wood mounted stamps, and all with neat storage too. 

Not only that Stampin' Up!, have also designed thier very own style of clear mount blocks that are amzing.  They are exactly like wood blocks but clear. 

But don't take my word for it, see for yourself....
