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.

SAB – Fresh Vintage

Hi, I hope everyone is having a good weekend. 

I have a few more Sale-a-bration creations to share today.  I know with so many of us having attended Cate’s baggie book event, you will probably have seen these cards numerous times over if you hop across a lot of SU Demo blogs!  So, you’ll probably be pleased to know that after this post I shall be showcasing cards from my last class based around the Create a Cupcake stamp set and Cupcake Builder Punch, plus some other lovelies……….

So on with the show:

The first card uses the flower image to create a gorgeous background on Pool Party card.  The base is Crumb Cake and I used the Ribbon Border Punch to create a little scalloped edging at the top and bottom where the Pool Party meets the Crumb Cake (quite hard to see in the picture though).  The butterflies have been punched from some Everyday Enchantment DSP with the Butterfly Punch, then a bit of Linen Thread tied round and a Basic Pearl added.

The second card has a Basic Gray base and the circle image from the set has been stamped in Versamark down the left edge three times.  Some Whisper White has been mounted on Pear Pizzazz card, then the floral image stamped on top.  The Fancy Flower punch was used for the two flower layers in Pink Pirouette.  The top flower has been scrunched, then an Antique Brad put through them both.  The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes, made into a banner and Basic Pearls added to each end.

The next card has a base of Pumpkin Pie onto which the wavy design stamp in the set has been added for a background.  Onto this is a panel of Whisper White which like the first card is edged top and bottom with the Ribbon Border Punch.  The floral image has been inked using markers to get the different colours, then stamped in two corners.  The butterfly is cut using the Big Shot and Beautiful Butterflies Die, then it has been stamped with the floral image and Versamark ink.  This is then heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder.

The final card is probably my favourite out of every card we made.  I’m not usually a fan of Whisper White card bases, but it works so well with this card.  It is teamed with Soft Suede for a centre panel with another strip of Everyday Enchantment DSP.  The bottom section of the card has been embossed using the Big Shot and Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.  The stamp image has been inked with Poppy Parade ink, then trimmed square and mounted onto a Scallop Square of Soft Suede.  Finally Hello was stamped in Soft Suede ink.  Simply gorgeous!
