VIDEO #39 - Language of Love

Somehow I overlooked scheduling this video using the Language of Love stamp set in this year's Spring/Summer catalogue, so I thought I better post it quick before the catalogue expires!  I made this video back in January!

This stamp set isn't just for Valentine's day, you can use elements of the set on birthday and anniversary cards too!  Enjoy!





Here is a close up of the other cards I made with this stamp set.


Happy stamping.

Come Fly with Me!

Another sample I made for Inspiration Station earlier this April.  You'll probably dine on these for a few weeks, so please bear with me! wink ;-D


This post is picture heavy just to show you that it is an interactive card.  You've seen spinner cards which spin in a straight line from left to right and vice versa - here's one that moves in an arc.  It works on the same principle, but instead of punching a straight channel, you cut out a semi-circular channel, made all the easier with nesting circle framelits.


Did you know that Stampin' Up! carries Coaster board?  I stamped and punched the jet plane out of this material to give it a more sturdy base and the clouds were punched from the cupcake punch and sponged in Pool Party.


This card has been earmarked for one of my grandson's forthcoming birthday.  He's jetting off abroad on holiday for the first time so there's much excitement and anticipation for the boys' first flight!

Here are the materials I used, click on the bottom right corner of each picture to access the item from my online store.




Happy stamping and enjoy your Sunday!

Peachy Keen Bundle


Who would've thought that with just a snip here and there and stamping the heart image in Tangerine Tango could transform this into a peach.  I punched several sets of leaves from the Bird Builder punch so I could insert it in the trellis.


Can you guess how I made the trellis?  If you guessed the chevron punch, then you guessed right! I punched a couple of strips then interlocked the two together to form the trellis.   

Click on the product pictures below to see what materials I used to create this card, it also links directly to my online store should you wish to make a purchase.


I hope it's inspired you to make one of your own.

Thank You Demo Support Europe!

There is an unofficial Global appreciation day for our wonderful team of Demo Support and here in Europe, we want to say a HUGE thank you to our Demo Support based in Frankfurt.


We wouldn't be able to bring Stampin' Up! to you, our customers,  without Demo Support's  invaluable help along the way.  So often we pick up the phone when we experience hiccups, so what nicer way to applaud them for their patience and work behind the scenes.  Bravo Demo Support, we love you! Thank you so much for all that you do!

VIDEO #38 - Life in the Forest

Two posts today.  My regular Wednesday's Workshop Wow video and Stampin' Up!'s Weekly Deal for this week.  Scroll down to view what's on offer after you've finished watching the video.

Never wanting to waste pre-cut card stock, (I had an over-run of Make & Take card sets for Sale-a-bration)  I thought I'd use them to make a more generic card using the Life in the Forest stamp set.  Here is the result.  Enjoy the video and watch out for a top tip to centre those punched out circles without all the agro!





So you have a point of reference, here's a still of both the completed cards.


This week's Weekly Deal





This is the last of the Weekly Deals in April which went live at 23:01hrs GMT.  Email me or let me know if you wish to take advantage of it or click on the Weekly Deal icon in the top right of my right side bar to take you directly to my online store and the relevant page or click here.

Fringe Scissors Egg cups

These easter egg cups were made by using Stampin' Up!'s fringe scissors.  Originally they had Cadbury Creme  Eggs in them but the wrappers didn't float my boat.  I found these pretty polka dot ones at our local garden centre and they were perfect to compliment the Polka Dot Parade DSP.  


You can vary the size of your "cup" by how wide you cut your strip of DSP, and also how full you want the cup to be.  My strips varied from 2", 2-1/2" and 3" in width by 12" in length.  Attach sticky strip at the bottom of the edge lengthways on both sides on the same bottom edge and just start rolling it on a skewer to start you off.  Mine were two strips joined together.


To finish, I cut another narrow strip to cover up the sticky strip.  They're quick and easy to make.




The easter weekend is flying by too quickly!  I hope you are enjoying yours.

Happy stamping!
