Party Pandas – so cute!

Hi,

I just don’t know where all the time is going!  I can’t believe we are into March already!  Don’t get me started on the weather! GRRRR! Hubby and I were meant to have gone up to see our gorgeous Granddaughter last Wednesday, but the snow here was sooooo bad our village got completely cut off!  All roads in and out blocked!  Thankfully our lovely daughter sent lots of photos to keep us going lol.

Anyway, we are still pressing on with clearing our home ready for a move and so my craft room is shrinking lol.  However I did make a couple of cards last month, one using the gorgeous Saleabrations FREEBIE, Party Pandas.  Aren’t the stamps cute?  So many uses, birthdays, Anniversary, Valentine, just to tell someone you love them, or to say ‘Hi’.

 

Here’s the card I made for my swap at our Pinkies Training last month.

Isn’t it cute?  The great thing about it is it wobbles! Oh yes it does! lol  Gently flick the panda and he wobbles around!  The papers I used for the background was from the 6″ x 6″ Picture Perfect Dsp Pack.  It has proven so popular and has gorgeous colours and images in it.  Just look at all the different patterns you get and with them being 6″ x 6″ they are ideal for cards and scrapbooking alike!

I just love going to our Pinkies Training, being part of such a huge Team, you get to meet so many lovely fellow Demonstrators, get amazing support and fantastic inspiration!  Want to know more contact me and join my Team and you can join me and my team at future trainings!

Below are the products I used to make this fun card!  If you wish to see the video and receive the tutorial, use the Hostess Code for March, place an order for £45+ with me and not only will you get access to the video, the tutorial emailed to you, but if you choose the Party Pandas stamp set as your FREE Saleabration item, I will personally send you a card kit and tutorial to make another beautiful card using your FREE Party Pandas stamp set.  Don’t forget to allow me to contact you when you put in your order via my online shop.

 

Saleabration is almost over, you only have until 31 March 2018 to place an order of £45+ to get any SAB FREEBIES!  The latest lot of SAB products are to die for, especially the gorgeous Springtime Foils SDSP.  Just look at the paper, it is amazing!

Here’s a card I made using this gorgeous paper!  If you spend £90+ on your order, you could get both the Party Pandas stamp set but you could also get these beautiful SDSP!  Then you will be able to join me when I show you how to colour them using various products, inks, aquapainters, marker pens etc, and you will be able to make your own gorgeous cards, just like mine!

Well I guess I better go so you can finish reading and go and place your order with me from my online shop (use the Hostess Code).  Remember all the FREE stuff you will get from me when your order is £45+!!!!!

Look forward to hearing from you soon!

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!

Change as good as a rest!

That’s what people say ‘Change is as good as a rest!’  Well I didn’t want to rest on my laurels but wanted to change the way I did things with my business.  So I’ve taken the very brave (some of you may say fool hardy hehe) decision to stop running my classes!

I had my last class just over a week ago and whilst it was sad, I know I will keep in touch with these lovely ladies and perhaps we will craft together in the future.

This is the card we made:  They had a choice of either having the cute doggy or the pile of pressies being pulled up the card!  Each have a hidden christmas sentiment that gets revealed as they are pulled up.  Great Fun and everyone loved making it!

If you want to make one of these cards here’s the products I used, just click on each item to place and order with me on my online shop. (remember to use September’s Hostess Code if your order is less than £150).  Use the Hostess Code and get a gift just from me sent directly to you by me to thank you. (remember I need your details).

 

Now I thought I would give you a heads up on just one of the new things I will be doing in my new venture!  I am so excited and I really hope you will be too and will continue to support me and join me in my new venture!

Firstly, I will be doing a ‘Product Share’ from the New Seasonal Catalogue!  What does this mean you ask?  Well in a nutshell, I choose a Suite of Products from the New Seasonal Catalogue, put a sample of the products from this suite (not including Stamp Set, dies or punches) together, place them in a strong plastic box (which you get to keep) and post it directly out to you ready for you to use to make your own gorgeous projects! How cool is that!   Examples of the types of products you will get:-  6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper, Cardstock, Embellishments, Ribbon, things like that, depending which suite I choose.

At the moment this is in the planning stage, but I would love to hear from you if you would be interested in taking part in this Product Share.  I plan to choose a different suite every month, so you get the chance to have lots of products at a fraction of the cost!  This will also help you try many of the lovely products before purchasing a full pack of say Designer Series Paper or gorgeous Embellishments.  It is very good value and a great way to get your hands on lots of products.

The first Product Share will go live Monday 2 October!

Email me asap if you would like more information, but drop back next week for the details of the first Product Share and more information about other things I will be doing in my new venture!

High Tide Cards using Brayering and Sponging Techniques

Hi,

What happens when you put the High Tide Stamp Set together with the Brayering and Sponging Techniques?  Well, you get these amazing results! Two beautiful cards that we will be making in my Classes in April! Aren’t they just amazing! Thanks to Serenestamper for her inspiration for the sunset card. Here’s the link to her video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JdO0djZ7VUo.  The second card I created myself and had a lightbulb moment! lol I had seen a few cards using either the Wink of Stella Pen https://www2.stampinup.com/ecweb/ProductDetails.aspx?productID=141897 to create glisten on the sea or whisper white craft ink https://www2.stampinup.com/ecweb/ProductDetails.aspx?productID=101731 to create waves.  However I wanted more texture and suddenly thought, ‘Clear Embossing Powder’! https://www2.stampinup.com/ecweb/ProductDetails.aspx?productID=109130 Well as you can see it made a fantastic card with lots of texture on the sea! I love it!

Here are the two projects, the first one was inspired by Serenestamper and the second one was my creation!

Pinkies Blog Hop

 

blog hop logo

Thank you for joining us on another Pinkies Blog Hop! We’re showcasing lots of gorgeous projects using products from the new Stampin’Up!® Spring/Summer Catalogue. Simply use the buttons at the end of each post to keep hopping!

The New Spring/Summer Catalogue has sooo many gorgeous products it was sooo hard to choose one product to showcase.  I did eventually choose products from the ‘It’s My Party’ Suite which includes the Party Wishes Stamp Set, It’s my Party DSP Paper stack, which is 12″ X 12″.  I also used the ‘Confetti’ Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and finally the Party Punch Pack, so small and cute, but gives a huge Punch! lol

Here is the first Card I made, it is a Slider Card which is great fun and interactive.

slider front

This is the slider Card closed, waiting to reveal its ‘secret’!  Isn’t the It’s my Party DSP Paper Stack so bright and cheerful” I love it!

slider card pulled up

Here the slider is pulled up to reveal the sentiment underneath and on the pulled up Tag more embellishment! There are so many Stamps in the Party Wishes Stamp Set, so much choice.

slider card inside

I decorated the inside of the card too!  This time I stamped the Cupcakes and the Balloons (again from the Party Wishes Stamp Set) then punched them out using the Party Punch Pack. The three strings for the balloons were stamped using Archival Black Ink.

There are three punches in the Party Punch Pack; the cupcake, balloon and the candle (which I have used in my other project).  They are so cute and what is also great about them, you will no longer have white edging around the stamped images when they are punched out because the punches are slightly smaller than the stamps! Brilliant, making the balloons etc look more realistic! LOVE IT!

The other project I wanted to show you used more products from ‘It’s my Party’ Suite.

Confetti embossed coloured

Isn’t it lovely, so bright and cheerful? I used the Confetti Embossing Folder, then coloured the embossed card using Mint Macaron, Crushed Curry and Melon Mambo inks and sponges. Can you see the punched out Candle on top of the cake? Told you I would use the Candle punch from the Party Punch Pack hehe.

Well I hope you have enjoyed seeing what I have made using a few of the new products from the Spring/Summer Catalogue and I hope you will have a go yourselves.

So now it’s time to hop on over to Lizy’s blog to see what amazing projects she has made with some new products.
