Stampin’ Up! So Hoppy for you & Hop Around Framelit dies

Hello!

Yesterday Stampin’ Up! launched brand new items to coordinate with Sale-a-Bration items.

Sale-a-Bration

You can buy the coordinating items and earn the stamp sets for FREE with every £45 you spend!

Also just launched – More rewards!

Remember: All rewards are while stocks last or until 31 March only.

I couldn’t resist playing with those cute frogs and dies!

The dies make this already fab stamp set so much fun! Love the lily pads, lilies and the teeny tiny dies that cut all those little flies out!

The sentiment I used is from the More than Words stamp set – also from the new Sale-a-Bration coordination line up.

You can see all the products used below. Just click on an image for a closer look.

Stampin’ Up! Animal Outing baby card

Hello!

It’s been a while since a took part in a sketch challenge so I thought I’d rectify that today!

If you haven’t tried a colour or sketch challenge, I highly recommend them! They help to focus the brain, if you have a typical Crafter’s Brain like me you’ll currently have around 200 hundred project ideas swimming around! It’s great to focus on just one at a time and make something pretty 🙂 it will also prevent you from feeling overwhelmed and is great for Crafter’s Block.

I’m playing along with CAS colours and sketches

Those clean lines make me very happy.

Here’s what I did with the sketch:

You may not recognise the cute kangaroo with her adorable koala friend: that’s because it’s from a brand new stamp set! But don’t worry, you can order your own from 1 June. If you’d like to get your hands on the new products before then AND shop with a discount – join my team today!

The list of everything else I used is a little further down.

Card Recipe

  • Old Olive card base – Cut A4 on the short side at 10.5cm and score at 14.cm
  • Powder pink Layer 12.9x8cm use foam strips to adhere to card base.
  • 2 pieces Myths and Magic Specialty Washi Tape 12cm each plus additional piece for the insert. (retiring 31 May!)
  • Whisper white insert 14.4 x 10cm
  • Old Olive scrap cut with Layering Circle Framelit die
  • Water Colour card cut with Stitched Framelit die
  • The image was stamped in Versamark and heat embossed silver – I then coloured the image with Watercolor Pencils and blended with blender pens.The greeting was also heat embossed.
  • Add a strip of snail to the Powder Pink layer and adhere the Silver Metallic Thread to it. I find it useful to just wrap some around my fingers to get the ‘shape’ don’t over think it though – it’s meant to be messy!

 

Happy stamping!

Picnic With You – Stampin’ Up!

Hi everyone!

 

I’ve made no secret of the fact that I am SO ready for Spring! Weather in the UK was particularly yuk yesterday and I want more light, more sun and less cold!

While I’m waiting I created my own but of Spring with ink, stamps and paper (and a few other bits and bobs)

The Picnic with You stamp set is so cute – it even has it’s own teeny weeny salt and pepper shakers 🙂

Obviously it has lots of picnic images but today I decided to focus on the flower basket element.  I would highly recommend the bundle so that you get the dies to cut out all those cute shapes. The basket also has an embossing die which gives a great texture to your project. The magnetic platform will really help when lining up the dies with your stamped images.

Picnic with you bundle

I embossed the card base with the  Simple Stripes embossing folder it makes me think of pretty flowers against a white picket fence.

Picnic with you bundle

I embossed the envelope flap too.

and we mustn’t neglect the inside!

Some of the flowers were raised up with dimensionals, as was the basket.

 

Everything you need to make this card is listed below, click the image for a closer look. Don’t forget to grab your FREE Sale-a-Bration gift with every £45 spend!

Enter the Freebie code when you shop with me and you’ll receive an extra treat from me, if your order is £150 or more keep the rewards for yourself AND get a gift from me.

Ready for Christmas Bundle
Ready for Christmas

Thanks to Anna Smith for the inspiration.

It’s a bit more ‘fancy’ than I would normally make for Christmas but this was for my kids to give their Grandparents so I wanted it to be extra special and that little sausage dog is TOO irresistible!

Fancy Fold with Memory & More cards

Just in case you didn’t know why Stampin’ Up! named their memory keeping system Memories & More I thought I’d illustrate it with a card! Cards are pretty much the best way to get most messages across of course 🙂

144638G.jpg

The Merry Little Christmas Memories & More pack includes:

72 Double sided cards

1 x card stock sticker sheet

1 Acetate sticker sheet

4 acetate card overlays

all for only £9.00!

We all want more bang for our buck and the coordination that Stampin’ Up! is renowned for and Memories & More is just perfect for both of those expectation. If you’re a scrapbooker you’ll do amazing layouts with them, or maybe your prefer a quick layout with the pocket system. You could even just add a pocket layout to your Love today Planner.

Those are the obvious so I wanted to think outside of the box a little.

Card recipe

Cut Old Olive card on the short side at 10.5cm (length ways)

Score at 7.5cm and 14.9cm

Stamp sentiment on Whisper White and leave to dry, archival ink has a longer dry time.

Take 2 small M&M cards and 1 large. You may need to take a couple of millimetres off the second smallest card. Trim the large card to 14.8cm x 9.9cm

Wrap ribbon around the second card, I adhered the bow separately with a glue dot.

Adhere all the cards to the base

Add wink of Stella to ornaments on big card, and number 25. Add one rhinestone to the sticker ornament.

Add rhinestones to some of the ornaments

Add  ornament  sticker to first card

If sentiment is dry punch out using 2 1/4 circle punch. Glue on and add holly sticker

Here’s all the supplies you’ll need
