Quick heads up - don't miss out!

Hi all

Quick heads up before it's too late to order the 2014-2016 in-colours before they retire in June. I know it's only March but judging by the stock levels there are already lots of you ordering it. I would encourage you to order re-inkers and card stock if you already have the ink pads. Some of the collection is out of stock but will be re-ordered and it will be sent as soon as it's back in stock with no further shipping cost.

Just for you - a fun Stampin' Up! colour challenge

Hi all

I took part in a colour challenge this weekend on a team Facebook page. It's always exciting to see what my team mates come up with. My house and craft space was rather chaotic yesterday following a trip to Ikea we were having a big storage over haul but now there are piles of things to sort out after our de-clutter! That meant I was even more pleased that I still managed my card for the challenge!

I love the Botanicals For You stamp set and it's FREE! 
It's part of the Sale-A-Bration offering which ends 31 March so time is running out!

Flowering Fields Sketch challenge for #GDP026

Hi all

I'm back with a sketch challenge! These are always a joy to take part in and also great to see all the beautiful projects other people come up with too.

Global Design Project #026/ Sketch Challenge

I used the Hello You Thinlits dies for the sentiment which I layered up to create a more 3D effect.

The DSP layer is offset to show the Basic Black underneath.

Here's how to make it:

  1. Basic Black A4 cut in half length ways (at 10.5cm) and scored at 14.9cm
  2. Whipser White layer 14.9cm x 9.5cm
  3. 2 strips of Bohemian DSP 1.5cm x 14.9cm
  4. Adhere the 2 strips of DSP to Basic Black Card base
  5. Stamp Flowering Fields in Blackberry Bliss, colour flowers with Delightful Dijon marker and the leaves with Gold Wink of Stella
  6. Cut 4x Basic Black Hello sentiment and 1x Bohemian DSP using Big Shot
  7. Adhere layers using Tombo and glue onto stamped layer
  8. Attach the stamped layer with dimensionals.
Flowering Fields is part of the Sale-A-Bration offering and FREE until the end of the month with a £45 purchase!

Happy Mother's day!

Hi all

It's Mother's Day here in the UK and I've had a lovely day so far with lovely flowers, card and my favourite chocolates from my boys and a yummy breakfast followed by a great church service. 

Such a gorgeous bunch of sunshine right there :)

It's also fun to be able to spoil my own Mum! I love how I can make the perfect card and wrap a gift beautifully to create something to treasure with the help of Stampin' Up! 

I hope you're all having a special day, all women should be celebrated everyday!
