{Onstage and New Catalogue Sneak Peeks}

Long blog post alert!

Had a lovely weekend with nearly 600 other Stampin' Up Demonstrators.  We laughed, cried, crafted, made plans and got to see and play with some new product.

I was privileged to attend the leaders event on the Friday night, where 60 demonstrators were treated to a lovely meal, some news, and some business training. I'm so grateful to all my team and customers for sticking with me and enabling me to enjoy these events.


Here are my lovely teamies who attended receiving their new catalogues.


It's always lovely to catch up with them, and be a bit zany with my sister who is in my team too!


We watched some fab demonstrations of new products, here is Cary Buckham's samples


and a stunning card by Amanda Fowler.


One of the exciting reveals is the new in colours, they are pictured at the top of the display board.
They are:
Rococo Rose
Purple Posy
Pretty Peacock
Seaside Spray
Terracotta Tile
I can't wait to get my hands on them to play and see what they look like against our existing colours.


Here are the new patterns for the Designed Series Paper in our colour collections.  I love the script pattern.




I thought this was an adorable new card kit.


Below are pictures of the other suites.













As soon as I got back, I did a video sharing all the goodies and swaps I received.
Grab a cuppa and enjoy!

{One Sheet Wonder Wednesday - Stampin Up Touches of Texture}

Hi there, welcome to my blog, sorry I didn't get round to doing a one sheet wonder last week.

This week, as I had the stamps and inks out I decided to do two.

I've used the fabulous Touches of Texture stamp set, it has lots of beautiful images.

I limited my palette to Greens and Yellow and used
Tranquil Tide
Garden Green
Lemon Lime Twist
Pineapple Punch

Although I have made bookmarks from these, they could be cut in a different way to make card fronts or a scrapbook layout.

{One Sheet Wonder Wednesday - Craft White Stamping}

Happy Wednesday!
Went in a very different direction today, decided to only use the Craft White Ink Pad from Stampin' Up!  If you've nexer used it before, it's quite a sticky ink, and its worth running a heat tool over your work before handling it.

It was my first time with this technique, and I'd like to play with it a bit more, as I'm not completely happy with the outcome.

Here are the photos and the video, enjoy.





Enjoy the video tutorial.

{Stamping Sunday Blog Hop - Floral Romance}

Hello and Welcome, I hope you having a great Sunday so far.  Welcome to the Stamping Sunday Blog Hop.  We are a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the world, we love sharing ideas and inspiration with you, so please make sure you have a look at the other blogs.


I choose to focus on the Floral Romance Suite, and in particular the beautiful paper and ribbon, with the addition of some sentiments from the stamp set and a few other embellishments.


There are 12 sheets in total in the pack, 6 vellum sheets, 3 each of 2 single-sided designs and 6 printed sheets, 3 each of 2 double-sided designs.  The top two in the picture above are the vellum sheets.  I decided to focus on these in particular on my cards.


This card doesn't require many special tools, it consists of a piece of vellum and some cut out leaves from the leafy vellum sheet.  There are some gorgeous mini buttons on page 39 of the Spring/Summer catalogue, the colours go perfectly with the papers.  I took apart some of the white flax ribbon (pg 35 Spring/Summer) and threaded up the buttons and tied a bow... can't bear a naked button!  I stamped a sentiment onto some Whisper White card and attached it.



The next card has some more elements to it.
Do you notice the scored frame around the edge of the card?  Such a simple little technique using the trimmer's score blade, or a score board.  Just turn your card upside down and score away.


The new Crackle stamp is fabulous for creating backgrounds, to stamp just a hint of it I only inked the centre of the stamp and held it in my hand and dabbed it to place it in the centre of my card.  the little pink flowers I cut using one of the little flower punches from the Bitty Blooms Punch Pack (pg 25 Spring/Summer)



I made use of the gorgeous variegated ribbon for this card, it's perfect for making sumptuous bows like this, with a little help from some glue dots.


Can you see the little dots around the card and the vellum?  The piercing tool and stamping mat came in handy with a ruler to create this simple but effective accent.  Couldn't resist adding a few extra pearls too.


All the sentiments came from this stamp set...

Thank you for visiting, I hope you enjoy visiting all the other blogs today.

This a super simple and quick little project if you need a couple of little bags for gifts etc.

By sticking to one colour and using tones within it, it really highlights the beauty of the stamps.
