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.

New Product Card Class - Forever Young

Hi everyone,

I have a five posts over the coming days to show you the cards we made at my last class.
I wanted to showcase some of the new products so used the Pennant Parade stamp set and Pennant Builder Punch, along with Forever Young, Parlour Prints, Button Buddies and the wonderful new Lace Border Punch.  Of course there were some of the new In Colours and DSP thrown in for good measure!

This first card is one I CAS'd as I simply loved it when I received one in an online swap.  It was designed by Michelle Bryant over at Michelles Crafty Paper

I kept with the same design and stamp set, but changed up the colours.  The one I received was made with Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black and Very Vanilla, I decided to go with a colour I hardly ever use - Cajun Craze, along with Basic Gray and Confetti Cream. 

It's a center step card, which once you have the measurements and a handle on the cutting and scoring, is actually really easy to create. 

The side panels were stamped with Parlour Prints in Basic Gray, using some scrap paper to mask off the surrounding areas.  Then the center panel was layered with Basic Gray and Confetti Cream and stamped with the tree image from Forever Young.  The sentiment is from Petite Pairs.

The beautiful border across the bottom is the new Lace Border Punch, and the medium sized Basic Rhinestones fit right in the centers.

I will definitely be picking up Cajun Craze again as I've fallen in love with it's warmth and depth :o)
