January Customer Gifts

Hello, thank you for stopping by my blog. Today I'm sharing my customer thank you gifts for the month using the Sweet Soiree Designer Series papers from the new Stampin' Up Spring catalogue.
The idea for the pop up calendar came from a swap I received at Onstage from Gillian Whitcombe.
I created the pop up calendar by cutting a piece of Powder Pink cardstock to 4" wide by 9" in length and scored at 3" and 6" in landscape mode. Burnish all the score lines with a bone folder and cut a piece of patterned paper to 3 7/8" by 2 7/8" and adhere to one of the end panels.
Mount the calendar onto a piece of Berry Burst cardstock. My piece measures 3" x 2" but this may vary depending on the size of your calendar.
Fold the calendar into position and create a stopper to hold it in place by punching a 1/2" circle from matching cardstock and attaching it with a dimensional foam pad.
I created a matching card with the same patterned paper and the new Whisper White Narrow notecards which you may have overlooked in the catalogue, you can find them on page 19 of the Spring catalogue. They are the perfect size for a quick card.

I hope you enjoyed today's project, all the materials I used today can be found in my Online Shop.

Petal Palette card from Onstage



Hello again, the card I'd like to share with you today was one of the projects we made at OnStage in Solihull back in November when we got our first look at the new Stampin' Up Spring catalogue.
 It features the Petal Palette stamp set which is a double stamp set with plenty of images and sentiments making it a great set for all sorts of projects. There is also a set of matching dies so no fussy cutting images out.
I started out by stamping the Bird image from the set onto white card with Calypso Coral ink and the sentiment with Basic Grey ink, then cut it out using circle dies and my Big Shot.
I used a Blender Pen and some ink from the lid of my Calypso Coral inkpad to randomly colour some of the flowers on the paper from the Petal Passion Designer Series.
These patterned papers are printed in black and white and can be used just as they are or you can add colour as I have done on my card with a Blender pen and an inkpad or why not try Stampin' markers, Watercolour pencils, sponges, a brayer or the new Stampin' Blends?
I finished my card with another strip of patterned paper from the pack, some Whisper White Organza ribbon and you might not have spotted the Petal Passion embellishments just peeking out either side of the die cut circle. I used Glue dots to hold these in place securely.
*TIP OF THE DAY*
Use your Stampin' Blends to colour the Whisper White Ribbon and you'll never have any problems co-ordinating your projects again!
I hoped you liked today's project and you can find all the products I used for today's card in my online shop simply by clicking the link below.

If you have any good recipes to share, please let me know.

Winter Wishes

Today I'm sharing a project I've put together for an upcoming class full of sparkle and shine, ice and snow which is quite apt as we have a yellow weather warning in place today for snow.
I had a little play with a new product coming in the New Year called Brushos for this project and I am head over heels in love with them!
They are little pots of watercolour ink crystals, you just mix them with water to activate them. I had so much fun using them and they can be used for all sorts of techniques.
I really struggled to capture a good photo of this project as it is so dark outside  today but trust me, it is so much nicer in real life.

Winter Wishes Class
Tuesday 19th Dec 7-9pm
£15

Beautiful Peacock

Hello again, thank you for visiting my little crafting universe! Today's project is a card that I designed for our team get together last month featuring a Brand New Sale-a-bration stamp set called Beautiful Peacock which will be available in January.
 I wanted to use the tail feather stamp to create a frame for the sentiment and stamped it with Old Olive ink and added some flowers stamped with Fresh Fig and Dapper Denim.
I also stamped the sentiment with Dapper Denim and cut the whole thing out with Stitched Framelit Dies and mounted it with Stampin' Dimensionals.
The backround paper is from the Eastern Palace pack from the Annual catalogue, I thought the colours were a good match for the stamp set with their rich regal colour scheme.
Check back later this week for more projects featuring this gorgeous stamp set.
