Happy Easter

A bit early I know but I thought I'd share this card I made using the little chick from Fun & Fast notes. The sentiment is from the Occasional Greetings set (a very handy set to have as it includes both mother's day and father's day greeting as well as lots more). The cardstock is Old Olive and So Saffron and one of the So Saffron layers has been stamped using the Canvas background stamp and So Saffron ink.
The ribbon is the NEW striped grosgrain from the Occasions Mini catalogue.

AND REMEMBER - any pre-orders for the new Occasions mini catalogue items must be with me by 6pm this evening

New Baby

This card will be winging its way "across the water" to celebrate the arrival of a liitle cutie, Jack who finally put in an appearance today (after a couple of false starts LOL) You can read all about it on Alison's blog.

Huge congratulations to the new Gran and Mum. x

A few cards...

First of all a big thank you to all the ladies who came along to class today. As always you were all great company and it was great to have some time to spend with two of my downlines Louise and Annette.

This was the card I demo'd in my workshop last week. Its a spring card and once you know how to make the folds it really easy but so effective. There's a tutorial over on Split Coast Stampers

I used my new A Rose is A Rose set - I think this might just be my new favourite - especially as I earned it for free during sale-a-bration. Yet another perk of being a demonstrator with Stampin' Up!

Stamps: A Rose Is A Rose, Its Beautiful Wheel
Card: Old Olive, Regal Rose, Whisper White
Ink: Old Olive, Regal Rose,
Ribbon: Old Olive 5/8" Grosgrain
Tools: Stamp-a-Ma-Jig & Wheel Guide

Then I used it again to make a Mother's Day card for my mum (obviously!!! LOL )

I used Tempting Turquoise (as this is my mum's favourite colour) and Mellow Moss.
The "Happy Mother's Day" stamp is from a set called Occasional Greetings and this was stamped with versamark and embossed with white embossing powder.

This next card was my swap card. A group of demonstrators over on ILWS got together and made some cards featuring some of the new stamp sets and products from the Occasions Mini Catalogue. We each had to make 9 cards the same and then we will end up with 9 different cards all using new stamps.

Stamp set: Fresh Cuts
The card base is one of the newFresh Cuts Notes
(you get 15 pre-cut cards and envelopes in a pack for £6.95),
Ink and background card: Perfect Plum
Accessories: 5 petal flower punch (in velum) and new oval punch

And lastly today this was the make and take we did at the workshop last week

Stamps: Simply Said, Circle of Friendship
Card: Regal Rose, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Pretty In Pink
Designer Series Paper: Sweet Always

Mini catalogue

Yessss! We have now got a Mini Stampin' Up! catalogue here in the UK - click on the picture on the right hand side. Lots of lovely new stamp sets, some ribbons, NEW OVAL PUNCHES (love, love, love these!) some new patterned papers and some other fab accessories.

You can order from the mini catalogue from 1 April until 30 September. I'll be posting a copy of the mini catalogue out to all my regular customers over the next couple of weeks but if anyone else would like a copy do please let me know :)

However if you really can't wait you could always sign up as a demo and pre-order any of the items from the mini plus you will also receive a demo discount of 20% off the price of all the stamps sets in the mini. You'd have to be quick though as you have to wait for 7 days after your sign up forms are received at Stampin' Up! before you can order.

If this appeals to you and you'd like to join my team then please do give me a call on 01475 689958.
