Pamper & Shopping night.... I promoted my Stampin' Up! Business.

Last week I attended an event in my home town of Buckingham called "Pamper and shopping". It was set up to promote small businesses and at the same time raise money for Cancer Research - how could I say no?!  The picture below is of me with a selection of craft samples, catalogues to give out and a small and simple "Make & Take".

I wanted to show and share how lovely the Stampin' Up! products are and easy to use, so I grabbed for a few ink pads, Whisper white card, a Christmas stamp set and matching punch and the white satin ribbon. Everyone who gave it a go loved it... and you never know, they will become new customers when they're ready - I do hope so!

Did you see my iPad showing my new blog design? I do love it so much...

Are you having a craft event in the Bucks/Beds/Herts /Northants area for Christmas? I'd love to come and share Stampin' Up! with you, so please drop me a message.

If you would like a catalogue, please send me a message and I'll post one out to you. I also hold card classes and private classes, so do get in touch to know more.

Card using "Marquee Messages" from Stampin' Up! - September Card Class

Hello lovely blog friends and followers, I hope you are well and had a great weekend?

I went to the Cinema to see the new Dan Brown film "Inferno" and I really liked it. Had a bite to eat afterwards with a friend and did some shopping, because it's good for the soul....

Anyway, here is the third and final card made at Septembers card class... come and have a look!

This is such a great stamp set to use for Birthday cards, but the set also has some other sentiments that can be used for other occasions too.
This set can be found on page 111 of the Annual catalogue.

I hope you like todays card, the original design was by Teneale Williams, a fellow Stampin' Up!Demonstrator from Australia who is so talented.

Christmas card using "Wonderful Year" by Stampin' Up!

Hello again lovely blog friends and followers.... Have you noticed my new Blog Design.... do you like it? I absolutely LOVE it.

My Stampin' Up! Team are called the Pink Owls, so as soon as I saw this graphic I had to have it as my new logo.

Anyway.... back to crafting. This is the second card made at my September card class. It's not traditional Christmas colours, which is part of the reason why I like it so much. It's Bermuda Bay and Whisper White - so eye catching don't you think?

We inked the "Wonderful Year" stamp (Pg 28 of Seasonal catalogue) with clear Versamark ink onto Whisper White Cardstock, added white embossing powder, heat set it using the heat gun. Once it's cooled down you can use the sponge brayer (pg 180 in Annual catalogue) inked up with Bermuda Bay ink and roll the brayer over it until you have it as light or dark as you want it (remember it dries lighter!). This will make the white lettering pop out. Using the Bermuda bay Ink we stamped the snowflake from the "Tin of Tags" set (pg 33 of Seasonal catalogue).

I hope you have a go at making some of these cards as they are so quick, simple and yet very effective.

I'd love to hear what you think about the cards and my NEW Blog design.

September card class.... with Lynne Fahey - Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

Hello lovely blog friends, I hope you are well today?

This week have returned home for a wonderful 7 days away in Paphos, Cyprus. I am all rested, relaxed and a managed to read a few paperback books while I was at it... I hadn't realised how much I needed that break! Here are a few pictures of the resort and the pool I spent many an hour in and around it.

So, anyway....back to reality, I thought I'd share with you one of the cards made at this months card class.

I just love this stamp set called "Jolly Friends" and the "Jolly Hat Builder Punch", and I also used one of the mini jingle bells, all of which can be found on page 29 of the Autumn/Winter catalogue.

The card design was found on Pinterest but not sure who the original creator was, sorry. I hope you all have a great day and I'll be back soon with the second of 3 cards made at class.
