Yay You Amazing Team, Stampin Up Onstage Downline Team Members Gifts.

Yay You Amazing Team, Stampin Up Onstage Downline Team Members Gifts.

Bespoke Downline Gifts,  Simply packaged using Yay You Hostess Stamp Set.  #stampinup30


At Onstage recently, I gifted my first level a bespoke personalised mug with their full names on them , in the co ordinating colours of Lemon Lime Twist, and Blues and Purples splashed with gold spots. I had 17 first level join me this Onstage plus one for my Upline Natalie, and oh what fun we had.

In keeping with the colours I made tags using the Hostess Stamp Set Yay You, that can be earned FREE and is retiring at the end of May
.

I kept the packaging very simple as I didn't want to take away from the gift itself.

   I punched circles and made a template to lay on my Stamparatus as I had some many to make, I could punch out all the circles and then stamp on them by putting the circle piece in the hole in the template and happily stamped away several using the watercolour circle from the stamp set without even thinking about placement and such.

  I then used the sentiment your'e truly amazing (coz they really are , everyone of them) in versamark and then embossed in Gold embossing powder.
 I layered these on to Gold mirri card cut circles and then onto a circle punched using the Starburst Punch 143717,   I used Lemon Lime Twist and Bermuda Bay for the tags.

I ordered one for myself too as I couldn't resist them.

At the Stampin Up! Onstage event recently, I made a fabulous wow swap to swap with 9 other demo's,  We each make a swap that wow's to use at our classes, and displays, and Wow was there some Wow's!!

Mine was based on a card HERE that I made, I purchased some plaque from a craft shop, used a chalk paint which I watered down, and sponged the plaque itself.  I then gave it a colour wash of Bermuda Bay Ink.   


I stamped and embossed in Gold on watercolour paper the Butterfly from the Beautiful Day Set and using a water brush coloured with Bermuda Bay Ink, giving a light wash first and then letting it dry and the continue with same colour and adding darker sales each time.


I sprinkled Gold glitter Flakes about adding texture to the design and then flicked with Wink of Stella to finish off.

Onstage Fairie Bus Swaps no glue box packaging. Stampin' Up!

Onstage Telford 2018 Fairie Bus Swaps.  Stampin' Up!

No glue box packaging for Molton Brown Gift Soap.

As this is posting I am at the April Stampin' Up! Onstage event,  I am so excited to be with some of my team, there is over 30 of my whole team going,  But I am travelling up with some Local Fairies on the Famous Fairie Bus driven by one of my downline members Bridget who does an amazing job of driving the 17 seater Bus there and back safely,  and tradition is to make a small gift type swap to hand out to those on the Bus.

My Gift Swap is a luxury bar of  Molton brown travel soap and I wanted to pretty it up but not to fussy as time wouldn't allow for this, but also the box that the soap comes in is a simple design and so I took my lead from there,  I received. cute no glue box from my fellow demo friend Charry and just had to make one so useful for lots of gifts, you just alter the sizings to your item...

I decided to case a design of card I made HERE as I just love this card and its simple design its just perfect I feel.

I used the Stamps from the Lots of Happy Card kit,  Stamping the flowers and dots from the Inspiring You Stamp Set in Crumb Cake  and the sentiment from the Card kit in Basic Black.

The sentiment was die cut using the Stitched Framelits, Some Basic Black Bakers Twine and a piece of Gold Sequin Ribbon was adhered to the back of the die cut with a Glue Dot, and then adhered to the box using Dimensional's, 


I do plan on my return to make some videos of my projects for Onstage, so do please pop back to see how these were all made.

Petal Palette Memories and More #SIP142

Petal Palette Memories and More Stampin Up!

Fun Fold Card 

Today's card is another challenge blog entry, this time one nw to me that I have happened across called Stamps, Inks and Papers SIP.

The challenge  #SIP142 HERE is to use certain colours, fabulous punchy colours, I love them..

For my card I used Bermuda Bay, Lemon Lime Twist and Basic Grey.

 I made a fun fold card the Z-Fold design, and a card mat from the Petal Palette Memories and More card pack,is pre stamped and I just used Ink Pads and a blender pen to colour the flowers.  The sentiment is from the Picture Perfect Stamp Set, Inked firstly with Versamark and then Basic Grey Archival Ink that way I could cover with clear embossing powder and heat emboss it.





I stamped a small flower form the Petal Palette Set on the folded front piece,  and the Border of dots for the inside piece of the card blank that shows being the matted Memories and More Card matt.

A piece of Back Bakers Twine is wrapped around the coloured piece and then this is matted onto  layers of Basic Grey and Lemon Lime Twist Card Matts.






A simple but effective card don't you think, LOVE those punchy colours!

Petal Palette Baby Wipe Technique #GDP129

Petal Palette Baby Wipe Technique 


Today's card is for the Global Design Project Challenge Blog GDP #129 HERE and this weeks challenge is a colour Challenge.


It's funny you know,  looking at this colour challenge, it reminded me that I don't use Soft Suede a lot, I have come to the conclusion that I am not fond of this colour! But it's in the challenge so I had to use it, Whilst I love this card I am still not sure of this colour still it seems!! But I do have to concede it does make for a pretty card!


I chose the stamp set I wanted to use which Is Petal Palette coupled with the matching die set.


I started this the design using a colour wash of Calypso Coral on Very Vanilla Card Stock, with a water brush and some ink form the ink pad, I then took a baby wipe and scrunched it up, dabbed it in the Calypso Coral Ink Pad, and then dabbed it in a pouncing motion on top of the wash.

I then stamped the rose image with Soft Suede and embossed with Clear Embossing Powder, I then coloured using Calypso Coral light and Dark Stampin Blends and Old Olive Light for the leaves.

I die cut the image and then disected some of the leaves so that the main part of the image stood proud and the leaves were tucked underneath.

I cut the filagree die cut from Pear Pizzazz Card Stock, adhered this over the washed piece of card mat and then laid some ribbon of co ordinating colours. 

Don't you just love SU for co ordinating ribbon!

To finish it off, I coloured some rhinestones using Stampin Blends and then stamped the sentiment from the Petal Palette Stamp Set.

Tonight I shall be sharing this technique on a facebook live Video on my Facebook Business page so please  do pop back again as I will be attaching it to this post.

You're inspiring, Mum Mother's Day Card, Stampin" Up!

You're inspiring Mum,  Mother's Day Card, Stampin" Up!

Well let me start by saying Happy Mother's Day to you all...

When I saw the Stamp Set You're Inspiring, I loved it,  I love Daffodils, but more so I loved one of the sentiments, Because of you, I am me,  and thats just how I feel.

My Mum inspires me I so many ways, for all she has been through in Life, she just gets on with it,  I love her dearly and because of her I am me!!

I wanted to make an eclipse card like forever,  and I love the card I made as my first one,   I firstly stamped the row of small Daffodils twice with Memento Black Ink as I wanted to used Stampin Blends, , then stamped the larger image the opposite end,   I coloured the heads with with both shades of Daffodil Delight, and the added shading with the lightest Calypso Coral, then blended together with the lightest of the Daffodil Delight.

I coloured the stems and leaves with the lightest shade of Old Olive, and then Stamped the bubble effect image from the same stamp set over the flowers, I used the second generation technique ( ink then stamp onto a piece of tatt paper and then without reining straight onto the coloured images) for this  as I didn't want them to jump out I wanted them coming from the background.  I coloured the rhinestones with the daffodil blends, 

Inside I dressed the card to with the gorgeous sentiment.


Happy Mother's Day Mum luv ya!!

This stamp set has 18 stamps in it, for £17 clear mount, or £24 wood mount, it has different sentiments you can use all year round.    I shall be making more cards with this set so do pop by again to see what I come up with.

Case this Sketch #260 with Blossoming Basket. Stampin' Up!


Case this Sketch #260 with Blossoming Basket.

Pretty card using the Stampin' Up! Sale-a-bration Blossoming Basket Stamp Set.

Today's card is using the #260 sketch from Case this Sketch Challenge blog HERE.

Seems a little strange making spring like cards today, sprinklings of Snow has been peppering the Garden on and off all day long here in the U.K.

But I have a card to make and I love the sketch so off I went and grabbed the new SAB set Blossoming Basket, It's a fab free stamp set that comes in a Bundle on a Level 2  purchase. It comes with an embossing Folder that is coming in the new Annual Catalogue in June.



For this card I used Basic Black, Berry Burst and Whisper White card stock, I then partial stamped the basket of flowers, Coloured them with Stampin Blends Pink Pirouette and Rich Razzleberry , the leaves are coloured with Stampin Write marker pen Lemon Lime Twist.  I then fussy cut them and layered them up on dimensionals.

I added some Wink of Stella to the flowers and then flicked some across the card, The Whisper White mat was embossed with the Sequin Embossing Folder from the Spring Summer Catalogue,..

The main part of the sketch is a sentiment and I have used the Lovely Words Thinlits, finished with some Basic Black bakers Twine and Rhinestones, makes for a pretty card don't you think?

Welcome, I am Kim from Dartford Kent/London borders in U.K you may have popped here via the lovely Pip over at Queen Pip I am sure you have been suitably spoilt with gorgeous creations, so welcome indeed.

This week on the Stampin Creative Blog Hop the theme is From The Garden, and we have some fabulous inspiration for you from the team including two super guest stampers Sandra and Charlet!

Today I have used the Petal Palette Suite and I wanted to share the more in Memories and More Products in this suite, they are not just for Memory Keeping scrapbook you ca use the cards for card making and treat gifts as I show here in the post today...

The pre printed cards can be coloured with various colouring mediums and I chose to use the Stampin Blends, AKA Blendibobs as I call them,,,

The colour ways are quite striking in this project I think, who would have thought to put Pool Party and Peekaboo Peach together but it really works with the pop of black!




The Pool Party mat on the card has been dry embossed with the fabulous Sequins Embossing folder from the spring catalogue, then I coloured the main card piece with  Blends.  I then cut the edge of another M&M card and attached to the ed of the coloured piece, I then tied some Black Bakers Twine around it and adhered a die cut filigree label from the Petal Palette co ordinating Dies, in Peekaboo Peach card stock, it just gives it that extra textured touch all layered up using dimensionals, and then finished with a splash of wink of stella and sparkly rhinestones, .....

On a recent trip to Ikea for some storage items for my Craft Studio myself and Paul couldn't resist the meatballs so we just had to stop for lunch, and at the till was a pack of fabulous Bird Ginger Biscuits reduced to 25p a pack (Think left over from Christmas as they have a look of the Twelve days of Christmas about them), so so pretty I just new I wanted to do a little treat bag for them and of course  with the theme for today Blog Hop, it was just fate!!

Once again I used the Memories and More pack for the topper, I just folded one in half decorated it to co ordinate with the Card and trimmed another card from the pack for the sentiment.

I do hope I have inspired you all, please do hop off to the next blog which is Sandra at Stampin Studio for some more super inspiration just click below on the flag.
