Zany Zebras do Christmas…

I absolutely adore these cute little zebras playing in the snow, in this card which I have dubbed ‘Zany Zebras do Christmas’. It is easy peasy to make, and I will show you how in the video below… I made the card several weeks ago, after a flash of inspiration one day and it has been so popular that I decided to re-make it during one of my recent Facebook Live videos.

Poinsettia Place…

As soon as I saw the Poinsettia Place suite in the August – December 2020 Mini Catalogue I just knew that I was going to get it. The stamps are absolutely gorgeous and the dies are so easy to work with but I will be honest and say that I struggled to use the Designer Series Paper. I had some out on my desk last night and there was one sheet I looked at and thought “I will never use that”. But then I looked a little closer and saw the most gorgeous individual flowers so I took out my […]

Quick and Easy Christmas Cards…

I knew I was going to love the Freezin’ Fun bundle from Stampin’ Up! as soon as I saw it in the new catalogue and I love it even more now I know it makes the most fabulous quick and easy Christmas cards. I have teamed it up with the GORGEOUS snowflake splendor Designer Series Paper here and these cards really did come together like a dream. These cute little critters are a delight to colour in, with whatever colouring tools you have to hand, but I took out my Stampin’ Blend alcohol markers and got to work. Such a […]

All Things Fabulous…

This weekend was a bit of a milestone for me as two of my team members celebrated their first Stampaversaries, what an achievement and seriously, where has this year gone!?

Now those that know me know that my favourite colour is purple and here at Stampin’ Up! we have an amazing selection of purples, just perfect for this three step stamp, though actually I have only used two of them… Highland Heather and […]

Paper Pumpkin Box of Sunshine…

Available now, while stocks last, for just £20 is this amazing Paper Pumpkin Box of Sunshine. A box filled with gorgeousness that you can use to create lots of projects. Then fill the box with yellow (or other) goodies, attach the included stickers to the box and send it to someone in need of a little sunshine. What a fabulous idea. I opened the box today during my Facebook Live, and made four of the eight cards as shown in the photographs on the box. I then used the rest of the bits and pieces to make three other cards, […]

Triple Layer Stamping…

Well, Triple Layer Stamping with a twist, to be more precise – mainly becuase this might actually be classed as only double layer stamping! I absolutely love this technique as it is quick and simple yet produces stunning results (in my opinion!) There are two ways of achieving the same result, and I cover both in the video below so you can have a go and see which you prefer. For this card I have used the colours Melon Mambo, Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green, a real celebration of summer using the Forever Fern stamp set, a […]
