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.

Stamping 411 - two challenges in one day - it's the weekend!

I've been busy card crafting this afternoon while my lovely other half re-felts the shed roof in the scorching sunshine!  I'm sure there will be a sun burnt head later on, glowing away!!!!

I took myself to my craft room and decided to have a go at a couple of Saturday Challenges.
The first was the monochrome colour challenge, and this is a sketch challenge from Stamping 411

I went for a completely different look and feel with this card, turning to the Springtime Vintage DSP and Four Frames stamp set, with a little Baby Blossoms stamp thrown in for good measure :o)

I went with a neutral base of Crumb Cake and added the strip of DSP outlined by Pear Pizzazz card, one side of which was punched with the Eyelet Border.  The frame was stamped in Basic Gray with the sentiment added from Clearly For You.  I used Aqua Painters with Rose Red and pear Pizzazz to colour this.  The Baby Blossoms down the right hand side of the card are just stamped in Versamark ink to contrast against the Crumb Cake.  I added a frame to the sentiment in Rose Red and popped it onto the card with Dimensionals.

I think two posts today should make up for my lack of posts since Wednesday.  My inspiration seemed to get up and go for a few days!  I can guarantee that there will be more posts for the next few days though :o)

Right, off to sort myself out before I head off to babysit my nephew this evening.  He'll probably be sleeping, the little darling......  he's such a cutie!
