Stampin’ Blends are nearly here!

Stampin' Blends are the new alcohol markers that Stampin' Up! are releasing on the 1st November.  We lucky Demonstrators have been able to get a sneak peek, and I can tell you they are just AWESOME!  The pens come in 12 Stampin' Up! colours with a dark and light version of each, plus additional pens in Ivory and Bronze.  Then there's a colour-lifter pen, for shading and correcting - I think it's my favourite so far!  It's perfect for tidying up if you go over the lines.  Each pen has a nib at each end, one side a thick brush, [...]

Joyful Nativity Spinner Easel card

Hi there!  I know to many people it's still early, but I've been getting ready for Christmas by starting on my Christmas cards.  As a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, we get advance previews on new catalogues, so recently I've been drooling over the new Autumn/Winter book, which is jam packed full of fabulous seasonal goodies.  I'll be posting videos with them very soon.  But for now, I've stuck to the main 2016-17 catalogue, which has Christmas sets on pages 26-35.  This one uses the Joyful Nativity stamp set, and at first I made a very simple and easy layered card, with [...]
