Sketched Birthday

Today is the last day of

Sketched Birthday is one of the stamp sets that is carrying over into the new catalogue.  We used it recently in a stamp-a-stack of cards for young girls.
  • We teamed it with some spots from the Designer Series Paper Stacks.  These stacks are available in each of the colour families and come in a range of four patterns.
  • The image was stamped on Whisper White cut out using the Apothecary Accents Franelits. I love this shape!
  • The colour was reinforced in the sentiment from the Sketched Birthday set.
  • A touch of colour was added to each image using the Stampin' Write Markers.
A really simple design that was easy to put together.
Don't forget that the BRAND NEW Annual Catalogue goes live tomorrow!  I will have it up o my blog ASAP, so come back and drool.
Thanks for stopping by.  Supplies are listed below and available in my online store or by emailing me.

Work of Art

I love love LOVE this stamp set coming in our new catalogue.  It's called Work Of Art.

I CASEd this card from Chat Wselaki, another SU! demo and changed it a bit.

So what's new?
  • the Work of Art stamp set contains all sorts of arty images and swishes.  Who knew a spot could stamp so beautifully.  And the sentiments are in two parts so you can stamp 'Just For' or 'Thank' with the 'you'.
  • the Hello Honey ink and card stock.  Lovely!
  • the ribbon in all the new In Colors.  This ribbon is in the new Blackberry Bliss colour.
'What would that card look like in Blackberry Bliss???' I hear you ask.  Well here you go.

Same spots, different swish and different ribbon (Tangelo Twist - also new)

All of these fab products will be available in our new catalogue which goes live on July 1st.  If you'd like to see it in the flesh, come to our catalogue launch!

Don't forget the retirement list finishes at the end of the month and those products will be GONE!

Hamburger Box Doggie

In my last post I showed you one of our new dies, available from July 1st.
Here it is again, dressed up a different way.

One of the perks of being a demonstrator is we have access to Stampin' Connection where we can share our idea with other demonstrators.  This cute doggie idea was posted recently along with a video tutorial.

I was pretty faithful to the video instructions until I finished my dog and felt he needed the tongue!  He didn't seem quite finished without it.  Do you agree?

If you love Stampin' Up! we have a fantastic joining offer until the end of this month.

Join for $85 and get $90 worth of products.  Hold your own party within 40 days and get 30% commission on a qualifying order!  Get 20% off every Stampin' Up! item from then on.

This is a fantastic time to join with the new catalogue just around the corner.  Give me a call or drop me an email to learn more.

Hamburger Box to go

Here's another sneak peek....

I have been having fun playing with the Hamburger Box Bigz XL die.  It's a cute box, smaller than a 'normal' hamburger box size, probably about the size a hamburger box, and therefore hamburger, should really be.

You can cut it out using your Big Shot and DSP....  I left this one plain so that you can see it in its basic form.

Or you can decorate it....  This one is made using our new In Colors Blackberry Bliss and Tangelo Twist.

It opens up by releasing those two tabs that are through the slots at the front.

This would be great for children's parties!
This die and lots of other wonderful products will be available from July 1st.
Thanks for stopping by.

Make Today Ridiculously Amazing

Here's another sneak peek.  We were given this stamp set at Convention.

I love a sentiment that can be used for a number of occasions.  'Happy Birthday' is a very useful sentiment but has its limitations to...well...birthdays. 

This sentiment could be used for a whole bunch of things - birthdays, graduations, good lucks or just a darn good excuse to send a card to someone. 

Can you spot the new In Color?

That's Mossy Meadow for the card base and the ink for TODAY.  It's kinda lovely and a very rich colour.
  • I roughed up the edge of my cardstock with the blade of my scissors.
  • Burlap ribbon adds to the rustic feel.  Good news:  both it and the Arrows embossing folder have made it into the new catalogue.
  • All my stamping was done on Whisper White which looked to stark once the card was finished so I sponged over it with Soft Suede ink to dirty it up.
  • I checked my Colour Coach which suggested Night of Navy and Bermuda Bay to go with the new Mossy Meadow.
I grungied this card up a bit to make it masculine and thought I might try a feminine version in a future post.
This is just one of the fantastic new stamp sets coming your way in the new catalogue.  Contact me for your copy or perhaps you might like to come along to our fantastic catalogue launch.  Details are below.

Product details are below although you can't order Mossy Meadow or the Stamp Set Amazing Birthday until July 1st......not long now!

World Treasures farewell

We used this beautiful set, World Treasures, in class this week and I kept telling the ladies it had retired last catalogue. 

Then a customer flipped through the catalogue and found it.  We have sooo many wonderful stamp sets, I can't keep track of them all.

But it is retiring at the end of this month so if you would like to buy it, or anything else on the retiring list, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Thanks for stopping by!  Product details are below.
