A few more Cards to Inspire!

Cards to Inspire, I hope so anyway! lol  We are in the final throws of moving!  Removal chappy in today packing ready for Friday! YEYE!  Can not wait!

So I thought I would show you the few cards I have managed to make in my dwindling craft room – which now by the way lol is completely packed – lol.

The first one is using a brand new stamp set that is only available 1-31 August!  Called ‘Colour Your Season’ ( pop back tomorrow to find out all about the bundle you can get with this stamp set).  It is a gorgeous stamp set and I coloured it in using some new Watercolour Pencils (also available from 1 August).

The second and third cards, aren’t they gorgeous? I used a beautiful stamp set called ‘Dandelion Wishes’ and the background was Bokeh Dots stamp set.  Here are the other products I used to make these two cards, click on each image for details and to order from my Online shop.

The next quilt effect background card I made for a dear friend whose Anniversary is today – Happy Anniversary Trudie!  Hope you liked the card lol.  As soon as I saw the embossing folder that made this effect, I knew I had to have it!  Here’s what I used:

Next, I made this card for one of my Team, Jilly Rickards to celebrate her 5th Anniversary as a Stampin’Up! Demonstrator.  Inspiration for this card came from Mixed Up Crafts.  Here’s the products I used for this one:

Another dear friend, Gill celebrated her wedding Anniversary recently so I made the Tulip Card for them.  Curling the top tulip petal and mounting it using a Dimensional makes it look 3D.  They loved it!  Here’s what I used:

The final card, I actually made with my dear friend and Team member Jilly when I went round to her craft room for a bit of down time from packing lol.  I used her products which was great as I hadn’t got these, but of course it meant I had to order them for myself – bad influence Jilly Rickards! LOL!  Here’s what we used:

 

So, whilst I have not been able to run my business as efficiently as I wanted and video any tutorials, I hope you agree I have inspired you with the lovely cards I have made for friends and family.  (I did make a couple that I forgot to take photos of! Ahhhhh! lol)

Anyway that’s it for now, I hope I will get back on here tomorrow with details of the amazing Bundle I mentioned earlier that you can get only during August!  So check back tomorrow!

Bye for now!

Latest Cards I have made to inspire you!

Need some inspiration? Well here are some of my latest creations for you to see.

I am nearly there in my move to be near our daughter and family so finding time to craft is getting harder lol.

I hope they give you some inspiration and you fancy having a go at making them.  Below each one are the products I used, so click on each product to go to my online shop to order them so you can have a go yourself.

The first one is a Shadow Box card I made for my gorgeous daughter for her recent birthday.  I love making cards for family and friends that are different and have amazing techniques involved.

Did you see the ‘Hand Delivered’ Stamp Set amongst the products I used to make my daughters card?  I absolutely love this brand new stamp, which is a Hostess Stamp Set.  The great thing about this stamp set is you can get it just by having a party with me (getting sales at the party of £150+), or placing an order of £150+ and choosing the stamp set as part of your stampin rewards money!

There are so many events you could use this stamp set for, Graduation, Weddings, Thank you, Birthdays etc.  Here’s another card I made using the ‘Hand Delivered’ stamp set.

Nearly the end of the School Year, why not commission me to make some lovely Thank you cards for the Teachers while you wait for your stamp set etc to arrive?

Here’s another one I made using the ‘Hand Delivered’ Stamp set – told you I loved it lol.  This time it was for a dear friends daughter’s birthday.

 

I used the Laser Cut SDSP for the leaves, and small powder pink flower.  It is so delicate and gorgeous!  I used my paper snips to cut out the small powder pink flower as well as the two different types of leaves.  Then I sponged them to create this beautiful effect.  Did you spy the two rows of circles behind the top layer of card?  Again this was from the Laser Cut SDSP that I cut down to size and sponged with lovely lipstick ink.

I have made some more cards using the Laser Cut SDSP, so why not order yourself some and pop back soon to see the cards I made using it, you won’t be disappointed!

My friend’s daughter is called ‘Emma’ and I used the very versatile Make a Difference stamp set to stamp out her name on the board the lady is holding!  Makes the card so personal, I love it when I can do that.  This stamp set is fantastic for giving you all the letters etc to personalise your cards/gifts.  So why not add it to your order?

I hope you have enjoyed my latest creations and they inspire you to create your own.  Why not place an order today, but remember if you want the Hand Delivered stamp set your order needs to be £150+ to be able to add it using your stamping rewards money or host a party!  DO NOT USE THE HOSTESS CODE FOR £150+ ORDER otherwise, I’ll get the reward and you won’t! lol

Enjoy!

Onstage is nearly here!

Hi,

First an update on my lovely hubby, Mike.  Some of you will have heard, my darling hubby, Mike, had a stroke on 12 March, which was both frightening and shocking!  Luckily it was a minor stroke, but it has affected his left side, in particular his arm, but also his speech.  Slowly over the last couple of weeks he has made great progress and is now able to speak properly most of the time.  It is going to be a slow process of rehabilitation, but all the Consultants are confident that he will make a full recovery.

Hence, I have had to make a decision about OnStage and that is that I will not be able to attend this weekend.  OnStage is such a fantastic part of Stampin’Up! and being a Demonstrator it is for most of us, the highlight of the Year!  We get the chance to meet fellow Demonstrators from all over Europe and have the chance to congratulate all those who have achieved milestones within Stampin’Up!

I am pleased to say that 4 of my Direct Downliners and 3 of my second Level Downliners will be going to OnStage and I know they will have a fantastic time!

I had made a card for each of them to give out at OnStage, but as I am unable to go, I gave them it along with a gift from me early.  Here are the cards:

I think they are amazing and it will be a lovely momento of the time they spent at OnStage.  Below are the products I used to make the cards.  I am sure you can think of lots of ways to use the Apron Die, even to make little boxes!  The Die set also comes with BBQ tools, so you could make a lovely male birthday card with that!

Remember to use the Hostess Code S4SGSTEQ for April on your orders and if it’s £20+ you will get a FREE gift just from me as a thank you for placing an order with me.   To see how many of you actually read this post all the way to the bottom,  lol, places an order with me for £30+ AND leaves the Word ‘INSPIRE’ in a comment after this post, will get an extra FREE gift this month.  Don’t miss out!

Thanks

Moving Barn Door Birthday Card!

Hi,

Sorry I’ve been so busy this last couple of weeks with my gorgeous granddaughter and de-cluttering our home ready for putting it on the market!

I haven’t had much time to play but managed to fit in making this lovely card!  I used the amazing Barn Door Bundle from our Seasonal Catalogue (p43)!  It is such an amazing bundle and yes the barn door does actually move from side to side!  Just take a look at the pictures!

I’ve seen a few of these, using small washers for the moving mechanism, but I didn’t have any so I used the 1/2″ circle punch we sell instead with a dimensional between two of them (four in all need punching out).  This was so much fun and I can see this having so many uses, perhaps hiding a photo of your loved one behind the door, for an anniversary card, or a number to celebrate a milestone, the ideas are endless – perhaps you could come up with some.

I have decided to offer you a lovely free gift as well as FREE access to my own video which shows you how to make this amazing card.  Just order the Barn Door Bundle from me via my online shop using February’s Hostess Code and once your order has gone through(remember to allow me to contact you), I will send you a special gift and access to the video.

Don’t forget it’s also still SALEABRATION Time! So if you buy this Bundle and some cardstock, dimensionals etc, which total  £45 or more you can choose one of our amazing Saleabration products ABSOLUTELY FREE!!  How great is that, it’s a fantastic time to take up my offer of a free gift just from me, free access to my video showcasing how to make this wonderful card AND, spend £45 and get a FREE Saleabration product too!  Remember to use my hostess code!

Click here to see the Saleabration Products.

Below are the products I used to make this card, just click on them and place your order today!

 

Thanks for dropping by and I look forward to hearing from you very soon!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with family and friends?  Hubby and I had a wonderful time with our grown up children and our gorgeous granddaughter!  I love getting together with my lovely family, relaxing, eating and catching up.  Well not much relaxing with granddaughter lol but oh so worth it!

Anyway I just wanted to drop by and remind you that we still have the End of Year Sales Event going on – but only while stocks last or until 2 January 2018.  Please click on the pictures below which will open up the  Retiring Favourites and Discounted products from the End of Year Sales Event, on my online shop, and place that order today! Products are flying off the shelves so you don’t want to be disappointed do you!  One of my lovely ladies wanted an embossing folder and unfortunately, she thought she’d wait a couple of days, but was too late! I was so disappointed for her and she was really upset.  So go check them out now!

Retiring Favourites

The other reminder is you only have until 31 December to reserve your Stamparatus!

Doesn’t it look fun?  Stampin’Up! have decided it was so popular when the first reservation window was opened that instead of staggering the reservation windows they have left this last window of opportunity open just until 31 December.  This means the sooner you reserve yours the sooner you will get yours after 19 March 2018!  Click on my ‘RESERVE YOURS TODAY’  button on my right hand side bar and reserve yours today!  You won’t want to miss out!  Once 31 December has past you won’t be able to reserve one again!  This is your last opportunity to get one in your hands early!

I was lucky enough to be part of the L2L Team that collaborated with Stampin’Up! in designing, testing etc this product, so I was able to pre-order mine and will be getting mine hopefully tomorrow! YEYE!!!!  I can’t wait, I am so excited to get my hands on this amazing product. I just know it’s gonna give me a new way of stamping, make it so much more enjoyable even though it is already, but this apparatus is gonna help me do the 2 or 3 step stamping much easier and quicker and more accurately than when I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig!

I will be making some video showing you how to use the Stamparatus, so if you haven’t reserved yours yet, do it today, so you can see the videos I do.  If you’re just not sure if you will want it or need it – I can’t see why you would think that, but hey, I understand, lol, why not watch my videos in a couple of days to see what I do with it, then reserve yours before 31 December!

Below is a video from Stampin’Up! giving you 5 reasons why you should own a Stamparatus:
