Beautiful Bunch – 4 ways with this gorgeous Stampin Up stamp

In December, amongst the Christmas madness I ran a class for my girls that was completely non-christmas.

We decided upon the #BeautifulBunch stamp set and the girls wanted some different folds.

So here’s what I came up with.

 This is a gatefold card.

Love this fold.  It zigzags and is super cute

 This is an easel card thats sits on the edge of a shelf

 and lastly a simple card with a tag on it.
We used a variety of colours.  Sorry the lighting was a bit rubbish the day these were taken.  

Caravan of Love

Hi everyone.

Do you ever have times when someone does something so kind for you and doesn’t want anything in return.  You know those small random acts of kindness that make such a difference.

A couple of days ago this happened to our family.  I had asked lots of people for help in many official departments, and everyone had rudely refused.  Then on asking a local business they stepped in and helped.  Not their job, not in their remit, but as an act of kindness they helped, and in return wanted nothing.  Wow.  I was very touched and extremely moved.

I wanted to show my appreciation, so of course I turned to my craft.  (Oh and a couple of nice bottles of wine for them).

I sat and made this card using the new love stack in the Spring Summer catalogue.  And I love it.

How cute is that.

Don’t forget if you would like a copy of the new catalogue and the Sale-a-Bration brochure just email, text or pm me on Facebook.

Have a great day, and don’t forget just one small act of kindness can make such a difference.

18 ………. my baby is 18 ….

Hi everyone.

Firstly I hope that you all had a great Christmas, and a great New Year.  I hope that this year brings you all lots of lovely times and great health.

Yesterday was a very special day in our household, my baby turned 18.  (Boy do I feel old!!)

To celebrate I wanted to make something special for her and I have used some of the new Spring and Summer catalogue items.  Can you spot them.

This is the card I made for her.  I have heat embossed the background in vanilla embossing powder and then used sponges to ink it up.  I created the badge using a bigz die and then heat embossed 18 on it before adding dazzling diamonds glitter.  I have used a selection of stamp sets to do this. Metro type and then some from the new spring summer catalogue and the sale-a-bration catalogue.

Heres the inside.  Again heat embossed in pool party and blushing bride.
Here’s part of the haul of presents she got …….
I bought and decorated a frame to mark this special day.
Again a piece of A4 whisper white was heat embossed before being ink distressed.  There are five stamp sets used.  
I then mounted the tags and some hearts before inserting behind the glass.
The front of the glass has tags, bows and butterflies added to it to give it some dimension.  
Its so pretty and the combination of Bermuda Bay, costal cabana, pool party and soft sky are amazing.
She loved it.
I also wanted to mention that from today our Sale-a-bration promotion is running.  During this time any order of £45 or more will qualify for free goodies.  You can order from the clearance rack, the main catalogue and the new Spring/Summer catalogue.    How exciting is that.
Look in my sidebar for the links to the new catalogues.  
I can’t wait to see what you create using all the lovely new products. 
I’ll be back again soon with more pictures using the new products. 

My final Sunday ………….

over at Sunday Stamps.  I am of course using Stampin UP products in this challenge.

I have loved being a guest designer this month.  Thanks again to Holly and everyone else for making me feel so welcome.
I would love to come back again.
Anyway here’s the final challenge for November …….. can you believe it, in less then 1 month Christmas will have been and gone and we will be looking forward to 2015.  
Anyway with that in mind …… and the fact that you may be Christmas’d out I focused my colours for this sketch on Autumn.
Here’s the sketch
Its challenge SSC 90

Isn’t this just a great sketch.  Now I love being able to create layers, so this was perfect.
Firstly tho, I chose my colours …….. for this card I have used Chocolate Chip, Real Red and Pumpkin Pie.  Not normally my colours but I used the Colour Coach to challenge myself even more.
Firstly I stamped the images in Chocolate Chip and Real Red, using the Bordering Blooms Stamp Set.
Then using the Banner Punch I cut the strips into banners.
Before matting and layering onto the cardstock.
I loved this effect so much I even put them inside.  Isn’t it nice to be able to decorate the inside to match the front.  Makes everything just that little bit more special.
As always all the products used today can be purchased in my online shop.
So pop over to Sunday Stamps and enter into this fortnight’s challenge.  I will be popping over to check out everyone’s entries.
Don’t forget to order your supplies today, because for the last time this month I am giving a free gift to everyone who places an online order of £50 or more today.
Big hugs
