About Me

I have been a Stampin' Up Demonstrator for almost two years now, and when I signed up it was just for the starter kit and discount on products........ I never imagined it would snowball into being a business like it has. I am a new Mummy to my little boy, Isaac, who is almost four months old now. I am spending my maternity leave enjoying watch him grow up, becoming his own little person, and also trying to build my business up. Stampin' Up! have amazing products and I would love to share my crafting passion with as many people as possible. I am always putting through orders, so if you need anything, or just want some information or advise, please do not hesitate to contact me. If you want to try before you buy, then check out my classes and get booked on.

My Favourite Stamp Set - today anyway!

Hi there,

It seems at the moment that I keep on going back to the Clearly For You stamp set, and today is no exception!
I think it works really well with the Four Frames and co-ordinating Decorative Label Punch.
Of course, everything Stampin' Up! co-ordinates.............  

This is a card I've made for some friends for their anniversary, but I'm also linking it in for the Stamping 411 sketch challenge this week.

I picked out some of the colours in the Botanical Gazette DSP, so used So Saffron as the card base, and this lovely bird from the DSP seemed to work well with the birds in the Clearly For You stamp set.  I ran it through the Lattice Square Embossing Folder.  Textured Marina Mist card forms the top section, with some lovely Early Espresso ribbon, and then one of the Four Frames inked in So Saffron, with Early Espresso birds and sentiment.  I used a marker pen to ink the birds as I only wanted two of the three on the card.  Markers make this sort of selective stamping so easy.
The frame is popped onto the card using Dimensionals, and for some added embellishment I added some Basic Pearls.

The Details: 
Card / Paper - So Saffron / Marina Mist / Very Vanilla / Early Espresso / Botanical Gazette
Stamps / Ink -Clearly For You / Four Frames / So Saffron / Early Espresso
Embellishments - 1/4" Early Espresso Grosgrain Ribbon / Basic Pearls
Tools - Decorative Label Punch / Square Lattice Embossing Folder / Snail / Dimensionals / Trimmer / Stamp-a-ma-jig / Stampin Scrub and Mist


  1. Beautiful! I haven't got that set (yet) love the bird printed over the embossing! Lovely! Amyxx

  2. Love this set with the bird dsp! The little pearls on the center of the ribbon are such an elegant touch. Beautiful!

  3. What an elegant card! Love the colours and the simplicity of it. Love the embossing too! x

  4. You're right....those two stamp sets work perfectly together. It's a lovely card!

  5. Beautiful job. This card is just lovely! Thanks so much for playing along this week at Stamping 411! Blessings, Gretchen
