Festival of Trees and Kraft Card Stock


I recently ordered the Festival of Trees Bundle and started off Caseing the card on the left from the Stampin Up Seasonal Catalogue to get my creative juices flowing.
I decided to add some small stars inked up with the Gold Encore Ink Pad to step it up a bit.







I stamped the background of the second card on the right with one of the Gorgeous Grunge Stamps and the Gold Encore Ink Pad again. The Washi Tape added some extra colour.
I love the way that the bauble stamp matches the tree and you can accurately place it because with photopolymer stamps you can see straight through them. 


A different colour combo this time with Pear Pizzazz, Soft Sky and Smoky Slate. I love using Washi Tape for card backgrounds.
Gorgeous Grunge was stamped using the Silver Encore Ink Pad .
The bling is from the Frosted Sequins Embellishment Pack on page 22 of the Seasonal Catalogue.
The sentiment is from the Wondrous Wreath Stamp.



                                                                                                                                                                   Last up is another colour combo based on the All Is                                                                                      Calm 12 x 12 Paper Pack.. I used the Delicate                                                                                            Designs Embossing Folder. The card was finished off                                                                                    with the Frosted Sequins Embellishments and some                                                                                      Linen Thread.

Wondrous Wreath Bundle


I love the Wondrous Wreath Bundle in the new Stampin Up Autumn/Winter Seasonal Catalogue. It is such a versatile stamp set. You can make cards for different seasons and occasions.
I cased the above card from the Catalogue on page 9 and just changed the word die from Joy to Noel.
I also added some yummy Gold Sequins.


This card was cased from Pinterest. I have just changed the sentiment and added 3 Silver Sequins.
Whover originally made this card has a very good sense of colour combinations.


This card was my own design. I wanted to make a Spring/Summer Card for a birthday or special occasion. The Flower Stamp and matching Framelit came in handy here.
The colour combo is Pool Party, Hello Honey and Blackberry Bliss.
I used the Dotty Embossing Folder for the card base.


Now we move into Autumn so I decided to pull out the Hexagon Hive Framelit which I love. You need to die cut it with a layer of Greaseproof paper to stop it sticking.
The colours are Mossy Meadow, Hello Honey and Tangerine Tango.
I finished it off with some Itty Bitty Flowers and some Gold Glitter Glue.
The Sentiment is from the Giggle Greetings Stamp Set.


Another Autumn Card with a Cajun Craze Base. The Hexagon Hive Die was used to die cut Hello Honey Card Stock. I used Pumpkin Pie and Crushed Curry Ink for stamping.
The sentiment is from the Four You Stamp Set.

Two Cards and a Pillow Gift.


One thing I love about being a Stampin Up Demonstrator is that you can enjoy making cards and pillow gifts for family and friends.
I made the above card for my daughter when she returned home from working for a year in Leeds for a charity called Caring For Life.
I love the colour combination of Strawberry Slush and Coastal Cabana.
I used the Flower Patch and From My Heart Stamp Sets and the Large Polka Dot Embossing Folder.


I decorated one of our Polka dot Paper Bags using Chalk Talk and the Gift Bow Die.
Inside was a packet of chocolate buttons.


I made the above card for my Daughter-in-Law who loves dance and has recently qualified as a Ballet Teacher. I am so proud of her achievements which have taken a lot of hard work and perseverance.
I found the stamp set recently during a visit to a Craft Shop and bought it with Jenni in mind.
The Scallop Oval Framelit and Itty Bitty Flowers were made using Stampin Up products.

Wondrous Wreath


A box of Stampin Up goodies arrived today and in it was the Wondrous Wreath Bundle.
We are going to be making the above card at my Free Make and Take this Thursday at 7.30pm
The Christmas Tree border at the bottom of the card was made using another Stamp Set called Cheerful Tags.
I used a Crumb Cake base and stamped on it in Crumb Cake Ink using the berries stamp from the Wondrous Wreath Set.

This is a much simpler card which shows you how easily you can make cards using this set.
The base is Whisper White and I used Stampin Write Markers for the sentiment.

Stampin Up White Christmas


The first Stamp Set that I ordered from the new Stampin Up 2014 Seasonal Catalogue was White Christmas.I love the little images that you can choose from to stamp on your card.
I will be doing a Class using this Stamp Set on Tuesday, September, 23rd at my house 1.30pm - 4.00pm.
Cost will be £10 to make 4 cards and a 3D item.
Let me know if you would like to join us.
The Real Red Card base was embossed with the new Filigree Frame Embossing Folder.
The Window Frame was cut with a  Cricut Machine.


The Green spotted mat behind the stamped image is one of the papers from the Trim the Tree DSP Stack.
The images were coloured in with the Blendabilities pens. The star was punched with one of the new Itty Bitty Accents Punches.

The Northern Flurry Embossing Folder was used for this card. I masked the ground and polar bear so that I could apply Lost Lagoon Ink with a Sponge Dauber for the sky.


The Filigree Frame Embossing Folder was used on Whisper White ardstock for the background.
The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Sentiments.
