Two important things...

Hi all

Stampin' Up! gave us two really great offers to choose from this month but as June is almost over, so are the offers.

Here's a reminder:

Sounds like a silly question to me! Join my friendly team by the end of the month and you can choose 2 FREE stamp sets in addition to the already fab starter kit which will cost you just £99 for £130 of goodies. Contact me if you'd like more info or head to

There's just one week left to grab yourself some FREE stuff! Earn EXTRA Stampin' rewards when your party hits £250 meaning you can get even more of the new catalogue goodies on your wish list.
As there's only one week left the options are:
Spend the £250 yourself 
I'll throw a facebook party that you invite your friends to and you get all the rewards when your friends order
Grab a catalogue pack from me, pass them round your friends and family, collect orders and you get all the rewards.
Don't delay though, time is running out!

Friendship Easel using Stampin' Up!

Hi all

I thought I'd share something a little different today!  I do love making 3D projects, they're always fun to give as gifts or use as home decor.

When I saw the Playful Palette stamp set in the new catalogue I knew it would be perfect for more than just cards.

I bought a mini easel a while back with the typical crafters mind set of 'I'm sure I can do something with that' and this stamp set was just the thing! 

I stamped directly onto the canvas with Peekaboo Peach and Flirty Flamingo then added some gold wind of Stella by 'flicking' it onto the project.

The Sentiment and frame were stamped onto Whisper White card and cut out using the fantastic new Layering Squares framelits.

Thanks for stopping by!

Don't forget Dad! - Cool Stampin' Up! technique card for Father's Day

Hi all

Father's Day is only 10 days away - I know!

For me June is always super fun with lots of cards to make including my Son and Dad in close succession plus Father's day of course.

I have a fun technique to share today using the Woodland Textured embossing folder and the fabulous Guy Greetings stamp set which is just perfect for lots of occasions.

You'll need your Big Shot for this one.

Open your embossing on the opposite side to the Sizzix mark as shown.

I used a Whisper White card base. 
Sponge the lower half with Pear Pizzazz for grass and the top with Pool Party for sky.

Ink your car stamp using Memento and stamp twice. Have your Big Shot close by so you can place your card in the folder and run it through the machine before the image has a chance to start drying.

Go over the car with a Basic Gray marker to add some more definition to the lines and also add some to the lines on the trees.
Using your ink pads as a palette (with the ink pad closed squeeze the case and you have some ink in the lid when you open it up) Give each car a colour wash with an aqua painter. I thought Dapper Denim and Emerald Envy looked very smart.

Do ask if you have any questions regarding this technique or let me know what you think, I love hearing from you :)

I hope you give this fun technique a try.
