About Me

My photo
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.

Big Blossoms......

Time for a colour challenge me thinks!

I went on over to Simply Stampin Challenge Blog where this week the colours are Very Vanilla, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie.  You are allowed to substitute colours to the nearest you have so I added in Crumb Cake as the neutral for my card.

I've seen lots of cards that people have CASE'd and thought I'd take a look through the Mini Catalogue and see if I could find something to make my own.  I decided to go with the Build a Blossom stamp set and the image on page 18.  The Build a Blossom set and the Blossom Petals Punch are so fabulous to work with, and are so versatile as well.  I used my paper piercing tool to do the stem, and instead of stitching I just used the writing end of the Old Olive marker pen to add a touch of colour.  The sentiment is from the Curly Cute stamp set.  So many sentiments in this set, all of them bold and loopy!  Brilliant for any occasion :o)
