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!
