Are you a last minute Lou?

Hello Everyone,

Are you a last minute Lou? Are you thinking you must get started with your Christmas cards - but you don't have time? Well fear not - I have the very project for you.

Simply stamp the cord & cap and greeting images from To You & Yours, cut a sparkly bauble with the Delicate Ornaments Thinlets Dies - or a large circle punch - glue it on and your work here is done!

Quick and easy - and beautiful too!

Wonderland card ideas

Hello Everyone,


Did you see my fastest-ever-card video on Tuesday? If not pop over and have a look! Here are two more cards made with the beautiful Wonderland stamp set if you have a little longer to spend.








The first has the images stamped on the cared and a gold star - where did I get that star? - well it is a left over item from the To You and Yours Shaker Card Kit - or you could punch or die cut one out of our foil sheets.

I stamped on the foil with Stazon ink as it works much better. And do you like the transposed colours of the Washi Label punch out? I punched twice, cut in half and put the white on the Rich Razzleberry and the Razzleberry on the white!





This next one looks very elegant. Gold embossed on Rich Razzleberry - a very opulent card - but still pretty quick to do.

Two takes on Sleigh Ride

Hello Everyone



Today I am sharing the work of two of my lovely Dazzling Dreamers team. Very appropriate as right now lots of the team and I are over in Brussels for OnStage Live - a three day event for Stampin' Up! demonstrators!




The first project is by Sarah Ridley - Oooh I love it. She teamed the Sleigh Ride houses with Shimmery White paper and used an Aqua Painter to paint on that beautiful sky.

She then embossed the words and stars in gold, which come from the Wonderland stamp set.


The second project is by Sara Harnett. Another one a similar colour way. Here Sara sponged the sky background in Wisteria Wonder, Perfect Plum, Rich Razzleberry and a little Tangerine Tango. She used the Fine Tip Glue pen to make a Dazzling Diamonds snow line. 


Haven't I got a talented team - I hope their projected inspired you.

Though for Thursday

Hello Everyone

I love inspirational quotes and like to have a different one in my craft room each week - so instead of keeping them to myself I am sharing a weekly 'thought for Thursday'

My Stampin' Up! are called the Dazzling Dreamers - so I believe in the power of dreams. For five years I dreamed of giving up my soulless corporate day job of 26 years and become a full time stamper.

Well that so easily could have remained a dream - but with my husband's support we organised our lives so that I could take redundancy and I am now celebrating a whole year as a full time stamper. I am VERY lucky!

SO - go ahead and dream - and then figure out how to make your dream come true!
