Quick Tip Video - Cleaning your Stampin' Up! Stamps

Hello Everyone

Back with another quick tip video - today all about cleaning your stamps. What I didn't say on the video was how to clean your Stampin' Scrub. I simply hold the whole thing under the cold tap until the water runs clear, then leave it to drain and dry.

Awesomely Artistic Stamp Set

Hello Everyone

When I first saw the new catalogue from Stampin' Up! one of the sets that jumped off the page at me was this one - Awesomely Artisic. Firstly I could see at a glance it would work perfectly with one of my all time favourites, Gorgeous Grunge - but it was also such a versatile set with delicate images for any occasion.

I love the dragonfly image - the mini grunge spots - the hessian type edge stamp and in fact each and every stamp in the set. Even though I am NOT Awesomely Artistic - this set makes me look as though I am!

I finished this card with a button and some lined thread. If you don't already have a catalogue you can pop to my online shop and check out the rest of the images here.  (Just look under products / stamps for Awesomely Artistic).

My Story

I know I have new people visiting my blog, so thought I would  a share a little bit about me and how I got to do the BEST job in the world! 

My name is Elizabeth and I just LOVE to share my passion for stamping. I started by buying just a couple of ink pads and a stamp set a few years ago...and I was hooked. Now I am a full time Stampin' Up! demonstrator and get to wake up every morning and do what I love.

There is nothing better than being able to introduce others to the wonders of Stampin' Up!  If you want to come to a class, a workshop, an event, a party or join me on one of my free weekly video tutorials I am here to share what I have learned and help you create amazing projects you will be proud to give.

Since being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator I have had made more friends than I could ever have imagined and now I get to pay my bills by stamping too! smiley


I also support a growing team of wonderful demonstrators who also love to share. We are callled the Dazzling Dreamers and we always welcome new stampers to our happy family.

If you would like to contact me about attending an event, ordering some Stampin' Up! goodies or starting a fabulous crafty business, feel free to get in touch. I am always available on email, or you can call me Mon-Sat 8am-8pm UK time. I would love to hear from you and help your stamping dreams come true. 

I have been married for almost 20 years to my soulmate Michael, who is a songwriter and is really supportive of my Stampin' Up! business. We love to holiday in Walt Disney World whenever we can - in fact we are now Disney Vacation Club member - which means we get to go more often! My nieces, who I adore, call me Auntie Disney - they love to stamp with me too! 

Love and hugs

Cup Cake Creation

Hello Everyone

Today's project is rather appropriate to share as I will be eating cake today with my lovely team. We are called the Dazzling Dreamers, and today we have an all day get together featuring crafting and cake!

This card was made using the stamp set Sprinkles of Life. It co-ordinates with a punch making the whole process of cutting out those iced tops really easy!

The bunting is a piece of designer paper from a mini 6"X6" stack called Cherry on Top.

I punched out the cherry and used Crystal Effects to make it glossy and looking good enough to eat.

Gift Bags on my Birthday :)

Hello Everyone

And happy birthday to me! I thought as it is my birthday, I would share some gift bags made with the new Gift Bag Punch Board from Stampin' Up!

This is such a versatile tool - I am discovering more and more you can make with it so I am going to be offering a special Masterclass on using it. If you are in the Southampton area - let me know if you would like to come along.

You may have seen the smaller of these bags on a video I did a week or so ago - but the tall one looks great doesn't it?

I used a sheet of our new Neutrals Stack 12X12 designer paper, some stunning Watermelon Wonder lace ribbon and the Just For You comes from a stamp set called You're So Sweet.

OK - off to have fun on my birthday now….see you next Tuesday for a new video.

Bakers' Box - how sweet :)

Hello Everyone

Today I am sharing a project made with the new Bakers' Box die from Stampin' Up! This is a great size and is big enough to fit in a cupcake or fairy cake. I cut a window in the front and backed it with stamped vellum cardstock - although you could use window sheet to see the cupcake inside.

I used one of the mini pegs from Stampin' Up! covered in Washi Tape and Basic Pearls. The background stamp is from a new set called I Think You're Great - and we will be using that in class this month.

To see more - or if you would like a catalogue - why not contact me?  If you are in the European market I would be happy to help.
