Stampin’ Up! Colour Co-ordination – Tech 4 Stampers Blog Hop April ’21…

The theme for this month’s blog hop is ‘Pretty in Pink’, so it seemed an ideal time for me to tell you all about Colour Coordination by Stampin’ Up! If you were to ask people what they love about Stampin’ Up! craft supplies you would probably get two answers… 1. Quality (it really is outstanding) and 2. Colour Coordination. Only a crafter will understand the pain of trying to find different pinks to match, so what a joy that you can get it all in one place, in the colour of your choice! Who are the Tech 4 Stampers?

Centre Step Card – Tech 4 Stampers Blog Hop Feb ’21…

The theme for this months Tech 4 Stampers blog hop is New Beginnings, and I won’t lie, this one had me stumped for a while, until I settled on making a Centre Step Card. I made this card for my prospective new Stampin’ Up! upline, hence hopefully fitting in to the New Beginnings theme! I can’t wait to rejoin and get going properly again. I couldn’t find any instructions for making a card that fit what I had in my head, so I went about creating this one on my own! I am not sure if this is technically how […]

Honey Bee Stepper Card…

I had a Songbird Stampers Team Meeting last week and was asked by one of my lovely teamies if we could learn how to make a stepper card. I have made a couple of these in the past but not many so away I went to re-learn how to do this! I knew straight away that I wanted to use the Honey Bee Bundle and the Golden Honey Designer Series Paper which is FREE during Sale-a-Bration with a purchase over £45.

I was so loving colouring with the Stampin’ Blend alcohol markers that I coloured in several of these gorgeous cake images from the Happy Birthday to You stamp set. If you like the look of this stamp set then read to the end to find out how you can win one of these for yourself. I have paired it here with the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper.

A Stand Up Fold Out Card…

Well, I really struggled to name this card design as it isn’t one I have come across before. I was just sat pondering fancy fold cards one day and this popped into my head as a great design for a special card, and it shows off so much of our beautiful Designer Series Paper that I couldn’t resist making this design using both the Honey Bee Bundle (£38.50) and the Golden Honey DSP (FREE with an order over £45 while stocks last or until 31st March). These products really work amazingly well together and those cute little bees are perfect […]
