Some more cards...

These are some more that i made as samples for my first Stampin' Up! party recently. Made two cards using the same theme, but 2 different layouts!

Both use the SU Spot On roller wheel stamp and real red ink and cardstock, also used SU brads gold and silver and the oval all and scallop oval punches from SU. The above one used some SU real red ribbon.

I love this stamp set purely for this image, its the Mr & Mrs set, and this image is just so sweet! I used Kraft Card, and Kraft coloured designer series paper for the background pattern, Brilliant blue card and ink and close to cocoa ink and some gems i had in stash. Also some ribbon i had in stash that matched perfectly!

Stamps set:SU soft Summer and fast flowers wheel stamp.
Card stock: whisper white, old olive
certainly celery ribbon, old olive and so safron ink pads.

Love this set, but its now on the last chance list! its Office accoutrement, and i used certainly celery and real red in ink, card and ribbon. Also used totally tabs stamps and punch for the side tabs. Finished off the flowers with little diamante stones.

This is also on my list of fav stamp sets, just love the funkiness of the set! theyre such neat flowers! Using More mustard card, white card and real red, certainly celery, close to cocoa, brocade blue ink, real red button and some thread, and the greeting is from Occasional greetings set. Also used some of the patterned paper from the designer series papers, more mustard.

Been so busy... but here are a few!

I finally got round to photographing some of the creations ive been making, but not got round to posting due to the hectic problems ive been encountering lately, so should have some posts ready for you!
I love this stamp set, its so cute! Its called Garden Whimsy by Stampin' Up!, and the products i used were, Whisper White card stock along with Real red and Basic black card. All other products used to create it (except for the diamonte's) are Stampin' Up! products, Ink pads used are Real Red, basic black, Old olive and pixie pink. Punches used are Scallop Oval, large oval and the scalloped border punch.

From the Mr & Mrs Stampin' Up! set, i used this flower as the theme for the set and Lavendar Lace for the colour. I used Forever Flowers stampin wheel to add stamped image to the candles, so that it all matched. Inside the set are set of cards and envelopes. (bottom picture)

Been busy making lots of cards!!!!

I have just bought and used Stamp a-ma-jig, and WOW, the best tool on the planet! seriously dont know how i managed without it! It is amazing!
This is the first card i made using the Stamp a-ma-jig as i had to do 2 step stamping with the roses stamps from 'A Rose is a Rose stamp set'. Used some of the FREE ribbon bundle that you get if you order £45 or more in August
(email me for details if you would like to place an order to get yours!)

Using the 'Happiness Always' Level 3 hostess stamp set, i made this card, again using the brilliant Stamp a-ma-jig, as the stamps are 2 step stamps, love this set, its so pretty!

I saw a card on a blog somewhere (sorry i cant remember which?) and loved this colour combo with Petal Pizzazz stamps, and had to do my own version of this, i just love these colours, they are so vibrant and bright, i love them!

I love this stamp, its the 'Fresh Cuts' stamp, i just love the image, its gorgeous, used the other stamps in the set to make the flowers and stamp a background for the sentiment.

Using the Fresh Cuts stamp again! i made this 5x5 card, i also used some of the FREE ribbon bundle! so you get not one... but TWO bundles of ribbon!

I used the fresh cuts flower stamp for the background on this and Petal Pizzazz for the flower, some more of that gorgeous FREE ribbon too!

... Yep! its another one made using Fresh cuts, there are so many possibilites for this stamp, its absolutely gorgeous!

This is a fridge magnet calendar i made using the 'A rose is a rose' stamp set and stuck it onto swiss dots embossed card and added a little calendar! was really chuffed with how it came out, and of course... you guessed... some of that FREE ribbon again!

Remember... if you would like to place an order to get your own gorgeous Stampin' Up! products and your FREE ribbon bundle on orders over £45,
please contact me so i can place your order for you!
If you would like to join my Stampin' Up! 10 club too, then please email me for details
as i still have a couple of places left!
