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.

Flower Power

Hi Everyone,

Do you ever get fed-up of flowers that you buy, to brighten your home, fading away?  I know I do............
So I decided to create some flowers that will last so much longer!

Using the Flower Daisies # 2 Die and the Big Shot I was able to create these lovely, bright and refreshing Gerberra.  They are one of may favourite flowers, and now I never have to worry about them drooping on me!

I used the Big Shot and Die to cut out two of each size flower to create one flower.  I did this twice over in Rich Razzleberry and again in Melon Mambo!  Love those brights........... and the smallest flower was cut in Daffodil Delight.
I sponge daubed all of the petals to give it a bit more dimension, and then used a piece of Fimo baked in the oven to mount them onto.  This was then glued onto a garden stake bought from Robert Dyas.

I cut the stakes to different lengths before popping them into a tall vase.  They will stay bright and stand tall, and they never need water!  Get and make some to brighten your living room :o)

I hope this helps to inspire you to use your Stampin' Up! products to make something other than a card.

  1. I love these. They are so bright and sunny, just what we all need this time of year. I think I am going to have to add the die to my ever growing wish list.

  2. Beautiful flowers! Love the colors you chose too!
