Pineapple Stamp Set

Good morning, 
I'm back with our large background Pineapple Stamp again. Pineapples and Flamingos are in trend this year and have been everywhere, including our fabulous Stampin' Up! catalogue:

Pineapple Stamp, Stampin' Up!

This lovely card has been created by embossing the Pineapple image in Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder and layering it on top of a piece of Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper. The embellishments are our Enamel Shapes and the card is finished off with a bit of Baker's Twine.

This is so cute and summery!

If you want to know more about Stampin' Up! products or have any questions drop me a line at the email below. Don't forget that at the moment you get a free £4.50 Bonus Days voucher to redeem in August for every £45 you spend on products.

The Bear Hugs stamp set is such a fun set to use, children and adults alike love it! There are matching dies ~ Bear Hugs Framelits Dies ~ which are run through the Big Shot and make cutting your bears out so easy.

Stampin' Up! Photopolymer Stamps


Stampin' Up!'s photopolymer stamps are top quality and have just enough give to create a perfectly stamped image every single time.

They're entirely transparent which means you can place the image you are stamping perfectly and they adhere amazingly to our range of clear blocks. They're flexible, which means you have more creative possibilities with each set. You can add more than one stamp to your block which means you can create composite creations.

You'll only need one set of blocks (sold separately) for all your stamps - whether they be photopolymer or clear mount. Of course we have wood mount stamps, too, which Stampin' Up! are famous for.

Here is a selection of our wonderful photopolymer stamps:

Playful Pals

This cheerful chap was made using the Playful Pals stamp set, and the sentiment is from the Better Together set. 

Playful Pals, Stampin' Up!

Playful Pals is a photopolymer set whereby you can build your own creatures! You can combine images to make an elephant, chick, monkey, dog, frog and pig - but that's just for starters and you can create whatever your imagination allows.

Playful Pals, Stampin' Up!

You can find Playful Pals on page 154 of the Annual Stampin' Up! Catalogue (there is a link on the left to view an online version) or you can view it in the Official Stampin' Up! Store here.

This is yet another stamp set which is going on my wish list! So much fun and great for the kids.

Back soon, thanks for stopping by,

Superstar Stamp Set


Today's project has been made from the Superstar Stamp Set - I love the way this has been layered with the stamping in the background and the cut out star on top.
The Stars Framelits Dies go with this stamp set, as do the Layering Circles Dies and the Tags & Labels Framelits Dies. These are all cut by running through with the Big Shot which is also available from the Stampin' Up! store.

You can view (or purchase) all these products by clicking on their names.

Back soon with another project,

Pop of Paradise - Summery Tie-dye Creation

Following on from yesterday's pineapple post here is another card from this month's class: 

Pop of Paradise, Ink Refills, Stampin' Up!

I used the Pop of Paradise stamp set. 

I created the tye-die effect using babywipes, a takeaway box (plastic) and our Ink Refills - this technique is so much fun! 

Here's how to re-create this look: 
1. Layer 2 or 3 babywipes in the bottom of a takeaway plastic box. Make sure they're evenly laid out with no creases
2. Drip ink randomly until the babywipes are covered
3. Use as a regular ink pad
4. Stamp image - and be amazed! 

Everyone in the class really enjoyed learning this technique and I know they'll be having lots of fun at home with it! 

Pop of Paradise, Ink Refills, Stampin' Up!

The sentiment is from the gorgeous Fairy Celebration stamp set.

If you have any questions about Stampin' Up! products please don't hesitate to get in touch, you can contact me via email or on the 'phone - if you can't get through to me leave me a message and I'll get back to you.
