Stampin' UP! Spring Extravaganza

Morning Everyone,

It was my Spring Extravaganza on Saturday and we were using the Bloom By Bloom stamp set and matching four mini punches which all the ladies got to take home with them.

Here is the hall all laid out.

We did two larger projects this time, using the bundle.
There were a lot of products in the Bloom by Bloom suite  and I used most of them.

The first project was a card and gift box set using the Memories and More Cards.  They come in a pack of 20, 10 of each of the large and small cards with matching envelopes.

The sentiments were all from the Itty Bitty Birthday stamp set.

Of course every table was decorated, this time I used some new products to make the flowers.
A Balloon punch for the large petals!

The second project was a mini album using the Memories and More Cards in the full size clear boxes.

I added a file binder to the clear box to hold the mini album.

My place settings.

Lots of samples for inspiration.

The new catalogue.

The next one will be on 3rd November.  I will open the booking on the 1st September.

Thanks for looking,

Everything is Rosy Medley....

Afternoon Everyone,

It is so sunny here in the UK today, its wonderful. 

We used the Everything is Rosy Medley of products for my Stamp Class yesterday.

Such a luxurious looking product suite that can be purchased altogether during May Only and its while stocks last only.

The colour combination is Night of Navy and Melon Mambo with a hint of Rose Gold.

The dies that match the stamp set have some some gorgeous shapes and one of them is this 6" long border.

You get 48 sheets of the designer paper, two bolts of ribbon, rose gold shimmer paint, glass dots and the stamp set and matching dies.

This card is a larger one 7" x 5".

 You can see the border die here better.

I used the leaves embossing folder for this card.

You can find the Everything is Rosy Medley on my shop page which can be found on the left hand side of my blog.

Sweet Baby Stamp Class


Afternoon Everyone,

Hope you are well.  For my Stamp Class this week, I used the Sweet Baby Stamp set and the Perfectly Paired Stamp set.

Do you like colouring in?  I do I find it so relaxing, especially with the Stampin Blends.

For the first card I stamped it three times and cut out the different sections to make the scene look huge and fun.

I think this image would look great in a frame for a little one's bedroom but I didn't have a spare one.

These cards use the Sweet Baby stamp set and the twinkle twinkle paper pack.
It has pool party and petal pink colour combination.

Oh my goodness, the framelits that match the Sweet Baby stamp set has so many cute designs, just look at this baby blanket, hee hee.

Drop me a line if you fancy coming to class, Tuesday mornings, Wednesday Evenings and Thursday Mornings.

Tuscan Vineyard Stamp Class

Morning Everyone,

Such a great day to be indoors crafting as it is rainy cats and dogs here in the UK today.

I am saying goodbye to the Fresh Fig In colour today, Sad to see this colour go but looking forward to the new in colours as they are gorgeous.

I used the stamp set called Tuscan Vineyard for this week's Stamp Class.  
Why is it I only discover a lovely stamp set when its just about to retire? hee hee

 We made a Wine Gift Tag to match a couple of the card,

You just need half a sheet of yardstick and fold in half.  Then score along the short side at 7.4cm or 2 1/2" and you will end up with two squares, cut away the front square completely once its folded.

Use a  1 1/2" circle punch to cut out the hole to go around the neck of the wine bottle.
Decorate as you wish.  The Card is a larger one a 7" x 5" version.

You can see the Wine Bottle Gift Tag better here.

I used my lovely stamping blends to colour in the scene for this card. 
The sentiment is from Flourishing Phrases.

The embossing folder is the basket weave one, done after stamping.

Gut out the middle of the scallop oval with the 1 3/8" scallop punch,
so you don't waste card stock.

Beauty Abounds Stamp Class

Afternoon Everyone,

Hope you are all well.  I have a few samples using the Beauty Abounds bundle to inspire you to get your stamps out.  It truly is Butterfly overload!

The framelits that go with this stamp set are amazing, there are so many dies that cut all manner of shaped butterflies.

My colour combination is Night of Navy, Balmy Blue and Gorgeous Graphics and Highland Heather.  I used the gingham pack of designer paper in the mini catalogue and the embossing fold is Country Floral.

The inside of the card looks like this.  They fly right off the page so to speak.

There's a lovely floral spray in the stamp set which is great for using your blends on to colour in.

I've always love to colour in, Do you?

These two cards have the framelits which actually cut all these butterflies out at the same time.

 Stampin' UP! have thought of everything.

 I used the rectangle stitched dies to cut out the white frame and the centre was used in the previous card.  The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Birthdays.

I trimmed the large dies to just one butterfly for these card fronts.

I had a bit of an adventure today.  I took my class on the road!  I am holding a Coffee & Card session every Thursday morning 10am to 11.30am at the Olive Branch in Wimborne.

I am just charging £5, you get a small coffee and the materials to make the card are included.

If you are local it would be lovely to see you.

I made some little chocolate treats as a table gift.  

I laminated the floral grid paper that is available right now in my shop, 
Such a Pretty place setting.

Thank you for looking,

Just a little bit of Designer Paper....

Afternoon Everyone,

Something a little different for you today.

Sneak Peek of the most gorgeous designer series paper pack coming out in  June.  It has a Mosaic Theme to it and one side has clear embossing which is really hard to photograph.

I cut out a few of the images and just added a sentiment.

Every so simple to do, easily done while catching up with some TV.

I used a new punch for some of the sentiments, also out in June.

I even found some embossed tiny bumble bees to cut out on one of the designs.

I'm ordering my catalogues this week, so let me know if you would like a copy.

Stampin' UP! First Frost Stamp Class

Afternoon Everyone,

Hope you all had a good Easter Break.  The weather here in the south of the UK has been amazing.  We got so much in the garden and our allotment done over the break.

For this week's Stamp Class we used the First Frost Stamp set and dies.

A couple of my downline showed me how to do the floating frame cards, which is a great technique.  We used the Press n' Seal from Amazon to hold the die cuts all in place and then ran it through the bigshot with the oval die.  You end up with two cards.  

All the die cut flowers are then 3D up with dimensional to give the effect of floating.

Here are the two cards we made.

I used Blueberry Bushel, Berry Burst and Pear Pizzazz for the colour combination.

This is a large square card.

The embossing folder is the tufted dynamic folder.

The sentiments are from the First Frost and the Perennial Birthday Stamp Sets.

If you fancy coming along to a Stamp Class do let me know, there are a couple of spots free at the moment, next month for my Bigshot Club.
