VIDEO Watercolour Wings with just one ink pad

Hello Everyone

Today's video features the beautiful Watercolour Wings stamp set, which you will find on page 75 of the Stampin' Up! catalogue - and in my online store :)

Here I will show how to get the multi-dimensional effect using just one ink pad per butterfly.

There is a job for you at the end - I need help choosing a background colour :)

Vintage Leaves Gift Bags

Hello Everyone

I recently made a stack of these bags for my lovely team who attended my all - day training. We had great fun making, eating cake and chatting.

I thought making these bags on the day may cause some congestion at the big shot - so instead I put them together in my craft room.

I used the new and fantastic Vintage Leaves stamp set with matching framelits. (It comes as a bundle with a 15% discount if you order both together).

I made the bags using the fabby Gift Bag Punch Board and stamped them with the leaf images too.

I finished with some of the new Metallic Thread (you get 45 meters for £2.75 so I could be generous!) and some ribbon to close.

Do you like them? You can purchase all the supplies needed in my online store if you wish. :)

VIDEO Inside the Shed with Gift from the Garden

Hello Everyone

Today I am venturing inside the shed - and lot the real shed which is full of spiders and webs…but inside this dream shed - stamped using the Gift from the Garden stamp set from Stampin' Up!

As I confess in the video - this one took me a bit longer than most of my projects - but it was worth the effort. I love the end result. 

So enjoy the video and I look forward to seeing some of your dream shed creations! (No spiders until Halloween please!)

Marker to Stamp Technique Projects

Hello Everyone

Today I am sharing another couple of cards make with the Gift from the Garden stamp set. I am in love with this set - so much fun to use the marker - to - stamp technique where you ink up the stamps using Stampin' Up! markers to get different colours with just one stamping.

As you can see, the images make great backgrounds using tone-on-tone stamping. (My cards are done in Bermuda Bay ink).

Hope you like these offerings :)

Hello Everyone

Today's project is made primarily with a stamp set called Gift from the Garden - and I LOVE it. It is perfect for gardeners and those who want to give to gardeners.

VIDEO Wild About Flowers in an English Garden

Hello Everyone

The title of my blog post today comes from the main two Stampin' Up! products I used - Wild About Flowers stamp set and English Garden Designer Series Paper.

But I thought I would just share a little picture of part of my English garden today. I have been out planting flowers - but it will take a while before the colour comes through….so on with the video.

I Love It When My Goodies Come Together!

Hello Everyone

One thing I love about Stampin' Up! is the co-ordination you get - with matching card stock, ink and accessories to stamps matching punches.

Here we have a classic example. In the Spring/Summer catalogue, we introduced the Mini Treat Bag Die and now with the arrival of the new big catalogue from Stampin' Up! we have a co-ordinating stamp set.

The Mini Treat Bag Die set comes with a banner, heart and star cutter (along with much more) and these shapes are reflected in the new stamps - how beautifully they go together.

The stamp set is called You're So Sweet and I have used it on each of the treat bag projects below. See how the star is outlined with a line and the word 'hello' (slightly obscured behind the ribbon on this photo) - and the 'just for you' sentiment is inlaid behind the frame on the spotty bag.

Don't you love it when your goodies come together?
