Masculine Card Video Tutorial Blog Hop..... Enjoy the little things video blog hop! Stampin' Up!


Masculine Card Video Tutorial Blog Hop.....  Enjoy the little things video blog hop! 

Hello and Welcome, I am Kim Fee and Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator in the U.K.


Thank you for joining us for our "Enjoy the little things in life - Design Team Video Blog Hop". We aim to give you inspiration once a month that will help you to be more creative along with great ideas and tips incl. videos. We have an incredibly amazing team of demonstrators from around the world that are part of this hop.

To my regular visitors may I explain what this is all about, we are a global group of Stampin up demo's  that have got together and made projects, and a how to video of the project,  just click on the next link to see the project and watch the video on how it's made..

The theme this month is Masculine, and I am sharing a card I made for a recent class I had in my studio. I wanted to show how the Stitched All Around Bundle, whilst looks like it's used fro solely feminine projects you can infact make Masculine styled projects too!

Now I have not done many videos as I am struggling to get to grips with I movie and You tube, But you know once in a while we need to push our boundaries a little!!  So here goes warts and all , as I said coming to grips with making them so there's hardly any editing, bar the front piece where my intro is and the end when I say goodbye, ...



Here is a closer look, I just love that Blueberry Bushel Ink don't you!
I chose to use sequins rather than rhinestones, they add texture and sparkle without being girlie.





Checkout the video below.






The products I have used are at the Botton of this post and links straight to my online shop, please be sure to use the current months Hostess Club Code at the bottom of this post on your order in my online shop!

Do hop on round the rest of the team right at the bottom of the post , they have some fabulous projects to share with you., I can’t wait to see what everyone else has created. If you’ve time, do leave a comment either below or on YouTube as we love to hear from you.  For easy purchasing of the products I have used please click on the photos below.

Clean and Simple Card and how to Video!


Hello there ,
It's super hot weather here in the U.K phew, I feel like I am melting but it hasn't stopped me from crafting, No no no!!

I have had a few projects going on here,   I have had to get my head around video making these last few weeks, and today I am sharing one of those videos with you at the bottom of this post, showing you how fabulous the new DistINKtive stamps sets are and so easy to stamp with using just one Ink Pad colour  yet making it look like you have used several shadings of the colour, and todays project  uses the Healing Hugs Stamp Set..




A super simple clean card, using just two colours, I love this set, I didn't think much of it to be honest, then I saw some fab projects made using it,  then oops it fell into my basket!!




Check out the video below, please do leave me a comment,  but I ask that you be gentle with me, as you know I have only made a couple of videos, and if you like please come and subscribe to my you tube channel, I would be super stoked if you do.

Let's celebrate with Varied Vases Stamp Set...

Let's celebrate with Varied Vases Stamp Set...


Hello Crafters

At the moment I am holidaying in fabulous Brighton in West Sussex in the U.K. trying to keep cool whilst touring the famous lanes perusing the little quirky shops! Having to close my eyes too all the lovely food and homemade cakes whose smells are wafting through the air, you see I am trying to cut down but t's hard when you love food like I do!!

Anyway lets get down to the business of sharing a gorgeous creation today's card is using the same layout and stamp set as Wednesday's card HERE.



This time though its for my team member Jan B she has just crossed the 100,000 career sales mark and that's nothing to be sniffed at, so in celebration since one of her colours is purple, she has purple nails!! 
I thought I would make a purple card!!

For my team members celebrations I always like to gift some other than product as a memento of their achievement for years to come.. And this time is no different, I am a Designer Girlie it must be the 80's in me I think, anyway a small Michael Kors gift this time will accompany this lovely card..

I used the same technique as the last card I posted, using the fab Stamparatus to place all the images perfectly..  I used watercolour paper as I liked the texture it gave the solid stamped bits.


The colour ways I used is So Saffron, Mango Melody Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape Marker pens , 3 brand new colour aren't the fab...  I used a strip of Subtle of Family DSP patterned paper co ordinate,  and added the sentiment  from the Broadway Birthday Stamp Set punched out using the Classic Label Punch.


Finished of with some baker twine and rhinestone how fab...

Varied Vases Stamp Set for Global Design Project Challenge #GDP43

Varied Vases for Global Design Project Challenge #GDP43 , Stampin up!





The theme this week was inspired by the new Stampin' Up! 2018-19 Catalog and just like the catalog it has endless possibilities. We would love to see you share what makes you live for stamping and creativity! It could be your favourite stamp set, the colour coordination or even stamping tool....
You can find all the entries HERE at Global Design Project Challenge blog.


Well my card entry is as follows :   I love the Varied Vases stamp set, and Fresh Flowers for the Live it, and of course to share my creations with you all.........

This stamp set is a very special one as it was designed by the fabulous Mary Fish in celebration of her 1 million Dollar sales milestone , yes you read that right a whopping cor blimey 1 million dollars wow thats a lot of stamps ink and card stock eh!!   I truly admire this massive achievement  as I know how hard it was to achieve my 100,000 sales milestone,,.



I use watercolour card stock to stamp my images on, and use the fabulous Stamperatus for easy perfect placement of each step of my stamping including the filling in colours!!  No painting on this card its all stamps and ink!!

I used Pool Party for the infil of the vase and then used Costal Cabana Marker pen to add shading to the stamp and restamped over the original inked section. Yayyy for the Stamperatus!!  


The same technique again for the flowers , using So Saffron ink and then that gorgeous new colour Mango Melody for the shading.


Now you may well think I used a marker pen for the dotted shading under the vases, well her's a tip, I used the infill of one of the Stamps in the set, It belongs to another flower in that set, the orchid type flower..

I layered the stamped mat onto a strip of the fabulous Bright Family Patterned paper, and the layered onto a Costal Cabana Card Blank, added a few rhinestones to the flowers and just under the sentiment from the varied vases stamp set and some White Bakers twine to finish..

Such a simple design that can be replicated by anyone.

If you wish to purchase anything I have used on this card please see below on how you can purchase through my online shop.

Pop of Petals not just for Summer, Stampin Up!

Pop of Petals 

Not just for Summer, Stampin Up!

Hello Crafters, 

Today I want to share with you a Christmas card, Yes I know it's only June!!  I have in my hands the fabulous new bundle Pop of Petals , the bundle consists of a stamp set and a punch!

When I first saw this set I thought Yayyyy a Poinsettia and I have been itching to make some.

I will admit to having used a couple of sets here, the sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings, and the Filligree shape the flower is set on is from the Stitched all round bundle, which I am using for my all day Crafternoon Tea event at the end of June and middle of July, a couple of spaces left if you wish to come along, you receive the Stitched all round bundle to take home and keep plus a fabulous light lunch and cake, yum yum!!

Just give me a shout if you want to come along, my classes are always fun!

Anyway back to the card, I stamped the flowers in Real Red, and then with a dauber inked the edges with Cherry Cobbler, the Leaves are stamped in Shaded Spruce and they two are flowers but a section cut off, to make them look like leaves.

Two flowers are adhere together using a glue dot but before I stuck them together I added some Gold thread in-between them. I added a Faceted Gold Gem to the centre of the flower,   I then popped the flowers up on a dimensional onto of some mini gold sequin ribbon and adhered to the filigree die cut from Stitched all round.


I embossed a piece of Cherry Cobbler using the Quilt Top Embossing Folder.  I attached this to a shimmery White Card blank, and finished it all off with some splats of Wink of Stella,

Eclipse Technique Father's Day Card.. CAS-ual Fridays Challenge.

Eclipse Technique Father's Day Card..     

  CAS-ual Fridays Challenge.



Hello Crafters, 

At the weekend I happened across a challenge blog, called CAS-ual Fridays and since I am aiming to get more consistent with my blogging I thought I would play along, with their challenge this week called CFC#201 Boys of Summer you can join in HERE.

I thought I would enter the card I made for My Dad for Father's Day.  I used the fab Stampin up! Lilypad Lake Stamp Set (146496) and used the same technique as this card HERE .


Using the Blueberry Bushel ink pad I gave the bottom half of the card mat a watercolour wash, onto Shimmery White Card and then stamped the squiggly lines from the same ink pad.

I used the Eclipse Technique for the word Dad using the Large Letter Thinlits dies, adhering with dimensionals and then cut out using the Celebrate You Thinlits Dies the wordAmazing in Gold Mirri card, and You in Shimmery White, and then I adhered this to Blueberry Bushel Card Stock.

Linen Thread and a scatter of Sequins finish the card off perfectly.

Thank you for popping by
