VIDEO DVD or Stamp Box Gift Holder

Hello Everyone

In today's video I give a shout out to Julia Baldwin, a fellow demonstrator who gave me the measurements for this fabby box. I have been sharing this box during some recent parties, but thought I would share with you all in making a version using the Something Borrowed DSP and Lotus Flower stamp. As it is the LAST DAY OF Sale A Bration 2015 - today is the final day you can get that stamp set for FREE!



Enjoy the video and scroll down for a close up view of the finished box.

Brayered Beauty

Hello Everyone

Today - as we are almost done with Sale A Bration 2015 - I thought I would share one last card made with the Irresistibly Yours designer paper.

I brayered over these pieces with Island Indigo, Bermuda Bay and Calypso Coral ink for this graduated effect. Of course I added a butterfly to one of them, but the other I left empty to show the beauty of this cardstock.


Do you prefer the butterfly or the plain one?

VIDEO Hanging Birdhouse

Hello Everyone

Back in December when I first peeked at the upcoming Sale A Bration stamp sets - this little house took my eye. I have made a sort of hanging birdhouse from it in this video. I hope you enjoy it.





And remember - if you want to receive this birdhouse free - there are just 7 days until the end of Sale A Bration - contact me to place an order if you would like one.

Blooming with Easter Wishes

Hello Everyone

Do you like this cute card I am sharing today? You know I love stamp sets that do double-duty - so when I saw the Egg-cellent Easter stamp set, I saw at once that it was not just for Easter. That little bird was cute as a button and the Bloom sentiment could be used any time of year.

On this card I mixed the stamp set with flowers from Something to Say and I hand drew the stems and leaves, (you can tell why I am stamper and not a regular artist can't you? LOL)

Still in the end it makes a sweet card for any occasion.

VIDEO Blended Butterfly

Hello Everyone

Today's video shows the new Blendibilites used in conjunction with the Butterfly Framelits to make a striking card. ****Please note - Blendies are currently not available from Stampin' Up! - however as I know lots of you already have them - I have decided to leave this video on.

You can get a similar effect using Stampin' Write markers from Stampin' Up!

Sponged Treat Bag

Hello Everyone

Do you like this bag? We did it at class and it shows off the fantastic effects you can get with the Irresistibly Yours designer paper. It starts as a white cardstock, but add ink and the pattern resists the ink leaving this stunning effect.

The colours I sponged with here are Tangelo Twist and Strawberry Slush. I finished my bag with Seam Binding ribbon and a bow made with the Bow Builder Punch.


You can still receive a full 12X12 pack of this DSP FREE during Sale A Bration - but the offer ends 31st March. Place an order of £45 and claim your pack today.

Lotus Blossom Loveliness

Hello Everyone

Today I am sharing a card made with the Lotus Blossom stamp set which you can receive FREE during Sale A Bration - you have until the end of this month if you want to snag it for your supplies. :)


It is a three-step-stamping set - that is you start by stamping the whole flower in the palest colour and then add the next two layers with medium and dark shades to create the watercolour-look images you see below.

I chose Soft Sky, Pool Party and Island Indigo on these cards.

Bonus project - Pen Holder Swap

Hello Everyone

Today I am sharing some swaps that I made recently for my Stampin' Up! team.

I used two items you can receive free during Sale A Bration. The Irresistibly Yours Designer Series Paper starts as a white colour. You can use a sponge or brayer to add the ink colours of your choice. Here I went for Cherry Cobbler, Real Red and Strawberry Slush.


Inside the pens I added some Something Borrowed DSP. Then on the top of the boxes I stamped a greeting using the You Brighten My Day stamp set - another set you can choose for free. I finished the light bulb with Dazzling Diamonds. 


Sale A Bration finishes at the end of the month - so get in touch if you want to receive one or more of these lovely freebies.
