Final Day to Sale-a-brate!

All good things must come to an end, and today is the final day for you to 
earn yourself FREE Sale-a-bration items with every £45 you spend.
You can shop online with me and still earn free products, your order will ship direct to your door.  Alternatively I will be placing an order this evening so just get in touch if there's something you want, postage will be at cost or free if you are local to me.
Today's card uses "Nature's Perfection" a gorgeous Sale-a-bration offering.
I've used Lost Lagoon (In Colour 2014/16), Pool Party and Early Espresso teamed with Whisper White.  I like to use the Naturals cardstock for the base of the card as it is a heavier weight and quite sturdy.
I love how this set co-ordinates with the Elegant Butterfly Punch.
The greeting is from a stamp set called "Four You".

The cute little flower punch is from a trio set of punches called "Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack" and can be found on Page 222 of the Annual Catalogue, I added Silver Glimmer Paper to the centres, offcuts from one of the framelits dies in the Mini Treat Bag die set.

To shop online, go to
or call me on 07717 068900 / 01452 740532

Last Chance........Natures Perfection Box of Cards

Today is the last day for you to earn yourself some exclusive FREE products with our Sale-a-bration Promotion
At last Friday's class I designed this little set of boxed cards, perfect to give as a little gift.
I used the Sale-a-bration offering "Natures Perfection" which I love, such a pretty set.
Tomorrow is the last day of Sale-a-bration, this is your last chance to take advantage of the Sale-a-bration promotion, for each £45 order placed you will earn yourself a free Stampin' Up! product of your choice, and believe me, there's lots of items to choose from.
My colour combo is
Blushing Bride
So Saffron
Early Espresso
Whisper White
I used the notecards from Stampin' Up!, these are so valuable, 20 little notecards with envelopes for just £5.50, amazing value and the note cards are  good quality cardstock which are also available in Crumb Cake.
So here's how I contained them, using one of the Gift Card Enclosures.
I scored at 1/2" on 3 of the edges from the original score line then folded these in and adhered to create a pocket.
I wrapped a piece of DSP around it's belly and added a die cut Butterfly from the Butterflies Framelits Dies.
I added a piece of White Jute Ribbon which you will find in the Spring/Summer Catalogue and tied a bow with Baked Brown Sugar Bakers Twine.

More Painted Petals

As promised I'm back with more from my Painted Petals Class.
Today I am sharing the card holder we made, designed to store a few cards along with their envelopes, I think this would make a great gift.
I stamped the flower and leaf images over the front cover, then added a little label at the bottom from the "Chalk Talk" stamp set which I embossed with Silver Embossing Powder.
You can see the embossed label more clearly here.  I love how heat embossing gives such a "wow" for such little effort.


And for the inside, two pockets to hold some cards and envelopes, all held together with gorgeous Pear Pizzazz Chevron ribbon.

Painted Petals Class

I recently ran a class that included the stamp set "Painted Petals".  One of the sessions consisted of 3 cards, all similar, but different, along with a folder to put them in to give as a gift.
I love this stamp set, it's so pretty and the images when stamped, have a watercolour feel to them.
My usual subtle colours here lol, I can't help it, I'm just so drawn to them.
Loving Blushing Bride with Crumb Cake, then I used Wild Wasabi for the leaf images, took a break from Pear Pizzazz my usual favourite with these two colours.
I will be back later with the other cards and the folder to carry them in.

Mini Treat Bag Framelits Die, so many uses....

I love how versatile this little Treat Bag is, I have created sooooo many different versions for different occasions and you can even make a 3D Gift Bag with it too!
On this occasion, I wanted to make this as a card to include a pocket for some money or a gift voucher.
 The "card" in the centre has my greeting and space for writing

then on the reverse is the little pocket for a gift card or some money
The greeting is from a set called "B.Y.O.P" in the new Spring/Summer Catalogue which works perfectly for this project!

Petal Potpourri

For my birthday last year I received the most beautiful card from Trevor Poole who is in my downline and if you have ever been lucky enough to receive a card or swap from Trevor you will know just how beautiful his projects are.  Well my card today was inspired by the card Trevor sent me.
I used a new set from the Spring/Summer Catalogue called
"Petal Potpourri"
and guess what, there's a matching punch that works with the large flower called the
"Flower Medallion"
If you purchase both stamps and punch together you can save 15% on a bundle offer
I love the little scallop flower image, here I stamped it in Blushing Bride Ink onto Blushing Bride cardstock and used a Rhinestone in the centre.  Thankfully our little 7/8" scallop circle punch cuts this out with ease!
I used the Bitty Butterfly punch with some Vellum and Blushing Bride cardstock then added some leaves using the Bird Builder Punch.
My crumb cake frame is from a Framelit Die set called "On Film", love this!
You will also see that I've used Gorgeous Grunge stamps on the background too!

If you would like to re-create this card, you can purchase any of the products via my online shop
or call or email with your order
