Swaps from On Stage Solihull 2017

Well, I'm back from the most fabulous weekend!  Solihull may not be the most glamorous of locations, but when you're there with 500 other women all excited to see the new Stampin' Up! goodies, it becomes magical!  There's so much I wish I could share with you, but certain things are still under wraps for now.  Don't worry, I'll let you know when I can! For now tho, I wanted to show you the gorgeous swaps I received!  I'll post the video of my own swap shortly, but these are the lovely creations I received from my fellow demonstrators.  Aren't they a talented bunch!  I've divided them into 2 categories: cards and 3D items.  There are loads of lovely projects here, and I know I'll be CASEing these designs.  In case you've not come across that term before, CASE means Copy And Share Everything.  Stampin' Up! demonstrators like myself are [...]

Color Me Happy kit – 4 x 4 designs

On the 1st November, Stampin' Up! releases their new range of alcohol markers called Stampin' Blends.  Alongside the Blends we have a new stamp set called Color me Happy, and a coordinating project kit.  If you haven't seen the unboxing video yet, go check out my previous post.  The kit comes with instructions and supplies for 4 gorgeous designs.  I've been playing with the kit, so of course made one of each: Color Me Happy kit 4 designs   Then I thought, why limit myself to these 4 designs, lovely as they are.  I could use the SAME kit and the SAME stamps, and mix it up a bit.  Here's what I came up with: Thank you cards Bird cards Lantern cards Flower cards I'll be the first to admit my colouring skills need some work, but if a total [...]

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, and the other a finer tip. As well as the Blends themselves, Stampin' Up! have brought out a new stamp set called Color Me Happy, and a coordinating project kit.  This kit has supplies for 16 cards, 4 each of 4 designs, along with all the instructions.  I've fallen in [...]

Cookie Cutter magnetic bookmark

Hi there!  Today I've been making magnetic bookmarks to send out with the new Stampin' Up! Autumn/Winter catalogue, and I thought I'd do a quick tutorial to show you just how easy it is to make this cute project. Start by stamping the gingerbread man stamp in Chocolate Chip ink onto Whisper White cardstock, and punch out using the coordinating punch. Then stamp the Santa image using Basic Black.  Colour in using brush markers, I used Real Red, Basic Black, Crushed Curry (for the detail on his belt) and Blushing Bride (for his face). Punch out your Santa, and then punch out a glittery bow tie using red Glimmer Paper. Next I punched out two cookie shapes using magnetic paper. Using Snail adhesive, I stuck some Real Red Stitched Grosgrain ribbon onto the back of my Santa and gingerbread man.  The strip of ribbon was about 6". I put a [...]

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 a gold embossed angel in the centre of the O of Joy.  Then I thought about making it more interesting, and the spinner card sprang to mind.  You can find the video below, as well as step by step instructions.   Start by stamping Joy in Chocolate Chip ink onto [...]

Pokemon Go – Gotta Craft Em All!

I shared some Pikachu punch art on my facebook page yesterday, and got so many requests for instructions that I just had to do a tutorial, so here it is!  All you need is the Owl builder punch, the Fox builder punch, scissors, glue, and a black pen.  I used Daffodil Delight cardstock for the yellow, and Real Red cardstock for his cheeks. Start by punching out 3 owl bodies and 2 fox ears in yellow, and 2 of the medium owl eyes in red.  Then follow the guide below to trim each owl body as shown, and cut the ears in half.       You should end up with pieces like this.  Glue the feet onto the body (nice and wide apart), and glue 2 ears onto the head. There's an optional sponging of the edges shown here, but I didn't do it for my original pokemon.  I [...]

Getting ready for the new In Colors!

Oh wow, look, it's a blog post!  I've been pretty quiet for, well, a loooong time now!  Since I last blogged, I've changed jobs (twice!), met an amazing man who then proposed after 6 weeks, we planned a wedding, got married in the snow then honeymooned in the sun, I've packed up two flats-worth of lifetime possessions (his and mine), moved house, and started crafting on a full time basis!  Whew!  So after all that, I hope you'll forgive my absence! I'm back with a bang tho, giving you a sneak preview of the BRAND NEW In Colors that Stampin' Up! are launching on the 1st June.  Yup, I know, that's over 2 weeks away, but I couldn't wait to show you!  Aren't they just gorgeous?!?  Each year SU! bring out 5 new colours, designed to fit the current trends in fashion.  Without further ado, let me introduce you to [...]
