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.

Vintage Vogue Flowers


I hope you are all enjoying the fabulous sunshine that has finally emerged!?!?!?
My laptop is set up in the conservatory, so it's really hot in here.  This post will be a quick one!

I just wanted to show you the card I made for the Less is More Challenge this week.
I decided to grab my Vintage Vogue stamp set and try some masking to make the circles in this weeks sketch.
I knew I wanted to use Sahara Sand as the card base, and then looked to my Colour Coach to pick the other colours Bravo Burgundy and Pink Pirouette.  I used Pear Pizzazz as well, for the leafy stamp.

I punched circles of post-it note with 1 3/8" Circle Punch, placed them onto the Sahara Sand card base and then stamped the leaf image over the top.  I removed the masking and then inked up the flower from Vintage Vogue in Pink Pirouette and then did the rock and roll technique to get an outer layer of Bravo Burgundy on the stamp.  I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to position the flowers correctly inside the circles.

Right, time to get out of the conservatory and get a nice cold drink :o)
