LOVELY INSIDE & OUT BIRTHDAY

Welcome back! Today I am sharing with you a card that I made for my daughters birthday. I am in love with the Lovely Inside & Out stamp set, you'll be seeing it a lot!! This time I have paired it with the Happy Birthday Thinlits Die and I've added a few retired star embellishments from the Urban Underground embellishment pack (I know!! Sorry, I couldn't resist them.)



I have used four of the new In-colours from Stampin' Up! - Fresh Fig, Berry Burst, Powder pink and Lemon Lime Twist. I am loving the new colours, they co-ordinate so well.

LOVELY INSIDE & OUT THANK YOU

Today I am sharing with you the thank you cards I made for friends that gave me birthday gifts last month. I am very lucky to have received some amazing gifts. I got some gorgeous scented candles, chocolates, flowers and prosecco.

I have cased this card from the very talented Kylie Bertucci. I fell in love with her card whilst browsing pinterest for inspiration and just had to make it and make it my own.




I started with a card base using Berry Burst cardstock and added mat layers in Basic Grey, Whisper White, Basic Grey and Whisper white (again), on which I stamped the sunburst from the Lovely Inside & Out stamp set in Berry Burst, Fresh Fig and Powder Pink. I added a strip of Powder Pink cardstock and stamped 'Lovely' in Fresh fig and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I stamped 'Thanks,' in versamark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder, onto a small piece of Fresh Fig cardstock.

I am loving the new In-colours from Stampin' Up! They co-ordinate so well.

WEDDING ANNIVERSARY CARD

Thanks for popping by. Today I am sharing a quick card I made for my husband for our wedding anniversary at the beginning of this month.




I stamped the Hardwood background stamp in Crumb Cake ink on to Crumb Cake cardstock and inked the edges with a sponge using Crumb Cake and Soft Suede inks.
Then, with Soft Suede ink, I stamped the hearts from Water Colour Words stamp set and added the text using the Labeler Alphabet stamp set.

love how this card turned out and it was so quick and easy to put together.

RETIRING PRODUCTS I'M GOING TO MISS

Hello and welcome!

Today is the last day to order from the Spring/Summer catalogue and  16/17 Annual Catalogue from Stampin' Up!, because tomorrow the new catalogue will be released!! I'm so excited to be able to show you the new products, there are some amazing new stamp sets and of course the new set of 'in colours'; there is so much!! Make sure you pop by tomorrow when the link for the new catalogue will be live.

May is a busy birthday month in the family so today I'm going to show you a few birthday cards using some of the retiring products that I am really going to miss.

This first card uses the retiring Balloon Adventures stamp set. I used Crumb Cake cardstock and Ink, and a small piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock and Chocolate Chip ink for the greeting.



I used the retiring Balloon Adventures stamp set for this card also, but changed the orientation and colour combination to Peekaboo Peach, Flirty Flamingo and, the retiring, Watermelon Wonder.



This card uses the Papillon Potpourri stamp set and co-ordinating punches and the Cottage Greetings stamp set, all of which are retiring. I've used Watermelon Wonder (retiring 2015-2017 in colour) and Peekaboo Peach ink.



These last two cards use the retiring stamp set I am going to miss the most - Gorgeous Grunge.










I hope you have enjoyed these projects.

Don't forget to check out the clearance rack, there are some great bargains to be had. Click here to go to the Stampin' Up! Store. Be sure to select me as your demonstrator to receive a free thank you gift for shopping with me!

SHOEBOX SWAP AND NATIONAL SCRAPBOOK DAY

Hello and welcome!

Today I am attending a shoebox swap with fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrators. We all design a card and provide kits for all attendees to make our card. All items are placed in a shoebox size receptacle that is passed around the table, hence the name!!

This is the card I have designed for the swap.




I stamped the images using Stampin' Up! Stamp pads and the Cool Treats stamp set. I then used an aqua painter to smooth out the colour and give it a water coloured look, before adding shading with the same (or darker) colour of marker pen.  Again, I used the aqua painter to smooth out the colour. Stampin' Up! Markers contain the same formula ink as the stamp pads and are useful for precision colouring; they are dual tipped, with both a brush and bullet tip. 


As today is National Scrapbook Day I thought I would also share a scrapbook page with you using the same stamp set and the co-ordinating Frozen Treats Framelits Dies.



Item no.142982 £24.00

Item no.142756 £24.00


The stamp set and thinlits dies can be bought together as a bundle (item no.145181 £43.00) the bundle price is only available until 30th May 2017.

I hope you have enjoyed these projects.

Bermuda Bay Colour Challenge


Hi all, a quick check-in this week ( I have an essay submission 

date looming!) 


Here is a card I made for a colour challenge over on facebook  on the 

#Stampin'Up!ColourChallenge page. Last weeks colour of the week was 

Bermuda Bay and I was challenged to team it with Mint Macaron and 

Crumb Cake.



It was a quick and easy card to make. I used the flower from the Sale-A-Bration 

stamp set Avant Garden, the little bits of foliage are cut from the Pretty Pines 

Thinlits and I've used the smallest circle from the Stitched Framelits for the 

greeting. The card looked a little 'flat' so I sponged some Crumb cake ink 

around the edges and added the pearls, which finished it off nicely.


Leave a comment below to let me know what you think.











If you wish to purchase any of the items used to make this 

card simply click here to go to the Stampin' Up! Store. Be 

sure to select me as your demonstrator to receive a free 


thank you gift for shopping with me!
