Butterfly Basics sneak peek from new Spring / Summer Catalogue 2015


One of the many benefits of being a Stampin Up Demonstrator is being able to pre order product a month before a new catalogue launches. Another benefit is that I got the Butterfly Basics Bundle free!
Above is a collage card created using elements from the Butterfly Basics Stamp Set.
The colours used are Elegant Eggplant and Pear Pizzazz.
I added Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to give it a lift.


The second card uses one of the three Butterfly Thinlets Dies that match the stamp set.I spritzed this butterfly with Bermuda Bay and Gold Ink.
The sentiment is from the Big Day Stamp Set from the Saleabration Catalogue. That means that you can get the stamp set free with an order over £45, after January 6th 2015, which is when Saleabration starts.

Festival of Trees Christmas Cards.


These are two of the Christmas Cards that I sent to my friends and family this year.
I love the pine tree stamp in the Festival of Trees set. The Whisper White Ink Pad is ideal for the snowy effect and some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter on the trees was the icing on the cake as they say.


The Nordic Noel DSP provided a quick and easy card. The top sentiment is from the Holiday Home Set. I added a bit of snow and a snowflake embellishment and all was done and dusted.

Build a Bouquet Kit.


While most other people were opening presents on Christmas Day I had fun making one of each of the flowers from the Stampin Up Build a Bouquet Kit which is available from January 6th in the new Spring/Summer Catalogue. I first sorted the kit and then proceeded to stamp the petals and leaves, using the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set, before constructing the flowers.
It was great fun to do and I look forward to making the other flowers and running a class in the New Year.
