Today I have a fab card my fave I think of the allday event, It's the superb Double Cascading technqiue, Now I toured the net for all sorts of instructions, I could not get my head round them, and they were all using 12 x 12 cardstock , I wanted A4 size, and where better to look than Jenny moors blog, Jenny is great she does all the hard work for you, she is amazing!! If you wnat to make this card then pop over to Jenny and purchase the PDF instruction class she has made , simplistic instructions right down the to T!

When is a cupcake not a cupcake???

Why When its a handbag of course!!! I have seen loads of these type of designs on the net and loved them, so I thought at the allday event, I would share with the girls, and of course I had to bling them up, I hear my ladies groan when I use the rhinestones, I just love them and can't get enough of them and am very generous with them on my cards including my class cards, I hear the girls say oh I am not using that many there too lovely!! I have used the Boho Blossoms punch for the clasp, Cupcake builder punch for the bag, again I have used the Naturals Ivory cardstock, with Pool Party, sab papers, 1 3/4 circle punch, 1 3/8 circle punch, Modern Label, word window, Dotted Scallop ribbon border punch, and that fabulous ruffled ribbon!

Anyone for a cupcake!!

Since there is only TEN days left of our Spring mini here at Stampin up, I thought I would share a few creations we made at our allday event back in March using the Create a cupcake stamp set and matching Punch! The creations I am sharing today are a small card with a matching gift box, The layout for the card I cased from a swap I received from a fellow demo called Sarah Poulton, she made a gorgeous baby card using the Avairy set and I loved it!! The gift box was made using the Petal cone die! The papers are retired Sale a bration ones, Oh how I love those papers!! The colours I used were Poppy Parade (gosh gonna miss this one when it goes)lucky limeade, Natural Ivory. Now I must say that the Natural Ivory cardstock is superb, especially for Stamping and watercolouring, and such value for money, it's beautifully thick scores and creases beautifully, is great for vintage cards, and at £6.25 a pack of 40 A4 sheets worksout out at less than 16p a sheet, it's superb quality it really is!! I used the fabulous matching ruffled ribbon, Top note die,Decrorative label punch, Perfect Polka dot embossing folder, Word window punch.
If you would like to purchase The stamp set and matching punch you really only have 10 days left to do so, Don't forget I offer free shipping!! Spend £45 or more and receive a free pack of paper worth £9.95, A choice from four different designs!! So if you purchase, the clear Stamp set, matching punch, ruffled risson and pack of Naturals Ivory, all for £47.65 you qualify for the free pack of papers all delivered to your door postage free!

Sunshine all year through..........

Oh I wished, It has been just the coldest time hasn't it!!

Todays card is showing Five SU sneak peaks, yep you read this right Five, Oh I am soooo excited I can't tell you. I have earned lots of free exciting products this last couple of months I am abosolutely twitterpated I am....

SU have done it again with the most fabulous paper designs, great for male and female creations, The main image and sentiment are from LOTV, The flower image is one of the sneak peaks from SU and one of the sets I earned free, when I saw this image on fellow demos blogs from across the pond, I secretly wished it would fly its way over herer, Oh someone up there is taking notice of me sometimes, thankyou!!.. Again images are coloured using the marker pens with the blender pen for a softer watercoloured look, the beautiful scallopy embossed look is another exciting sneak peak. Oh yes and who could forget another colour in the ruffled ribbon selection....
Well I am off now to make my many swaps with my freebies, I will show you when they are finished... I love swapping it's one of the best bits about Stampin up, lots of creations made by other crafters to enjoy!!

A little cute with a splash of sneak peak!!

Today I have a little cute card to show you, which has a sneak peak of upcomming product from Stampin up. Todays card is coloured using SU marker pens with a stampin up blender pens, it gives the feel and look of water colour on smooth cardstock that you can't really douse with water a terrific alternative to watercolour pencils and brushes but giving the same effect!!

You get three Double ended pens for £7.95 and thats all you need for as many colours as you can handle, just squiggle the colour away ready for the next one!

I have use an LOTV stamp for the main image, having been one of their first card designers I do have a soft spot for them! I have used the ultra gorgeous Sale a bration papers Called Enchantment, unfortunately no longer available from SU.Teamed with very vanilla and calypso coral cardstock, Have you spied that sneak peak yet!! Yep you got it the beautiful ruffled ribbon placed upon the border punch. I love this card, It's made especially for my lovely friend Barbara, I just know she is going to love recreating it!!


Do come back on wednesday for some more SNEAK PEAKS combined with a bit of cuteness!

Sail away with me Honey!!

Hello all, its been the longest time hasn't it!! Well apologies my life has been a bit cahotic to say the least at the mo!! I feel that I am chasing me tail wherever I go....

First up though I would like to say huge thanks to Angie for giving my blog a makeover, I think its beautiful, If you want a make over Angies contact details are on the side bar, I highly recommend Angie she is very fair in price, personally I don't think she charges enough for such talent!!

Right onto some creations, I have cased a card here amoungst this lot, the lovely Lee Ann Greff, I love our mens bits here at Stampin up, making cards for men is such a drag, a drag in as what can we make thats not sports related or for one that doesnt have any hobbies other than watching telly!!

I used the sail away single stamp for these cards, I also love the colourways that I used. So striking the colours are, eye catching I think.. I have used Not Quite Navy, Very Vanilla, Really Rust I was sbout to say, but it's not it's Cujan Craze... Can you spy a little something NOT in our current catty's!!

I will be selling kits for these cards if anyone is interested, there will be enough to make 5 of each.......
