Stampin' Up! Ink Pads

For Stampin' Up! co-ordination is an obsession. Matching a few items simply isn't enough - so Stampin' Up! co-ordinate across their whole product range making it easy to create masterpieces, whatever your level of experience.

It is no different for the ink pads - Stampin' Up! has a huge range of ink pads, perfect for every project.

Stampin' Up!'s Classic Stampin' Pads are a firm foam pad with flip-top that stores ink upside down to keep the pad moist. The ink is fast drying, dye based and acid free.

Of course all the ink pads can be bought individually as well. We also have Ink Refills which are used to refill the Classic Stampin' Pads or can be used to various craft effects in their own right.

I believe Stampin' Up! pads are truly the best in the business and you will love the size and quality of Classic Stampin' Pads.

If you have any questions about our ink pads, or about anything else related to Stampin' Up! please don't hesitate to get in touch, I'd only be too happy to help!

Watercolor Wings

Watercolor Wings, Stampin' Up!

I've posted a few of these butterflies up recently, they're so bright and eye-catching. They are made by stamping with 4 different stamps in 4 different colours. This is easy to do because they're photopolymer stamps, so you can see easily what you're doing. The stamp set is called Watercolor Wings and was also in the recent Spring Summer Catalogue.

This is my orange butterfly. I used Smoky Slate, Calypso Coral, Delightful Dijon and Tuxedo Black Memento Ink 

So beautiful! I've seen some white photograph box frames with several butterflies in of different colours - they make great home decor projects.

Vintage Leaves & Leaflets Framelits Dies


This project is a variation on the one I posted up on the 8th June 2016:



I love this leafy, natural look!
Both projects were made using the fantastic Vintage Leaves Stamp Set and the matching Leaflets Framelits Dies for the Big Shot Machine. 

The background was created using the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and the Big Shot, which is an invaluable tool!

I used the Endless Birthday Wishes Photopolymer Stamp Set which is fantastic for cardmaking and scrapbooking alike.

Please help my friends ~ Dawn & Assistant Dog Boris!

Good morning! 
If you have found your way on to my site I am a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and I usually post up pictures of cardmaking and scrapbooking projects, however from time to time I post up other random crafts that I have done, and today I am posting about my lovely friend (and Stampin' Up! customer) Dawn. I hope you enjoy today's post (please scroll down for the crafty post) and I hope you will come back to visit my site again. 

Dawn has been a friend for many years and I met her through my work with Stampin' Up! She won't mind me telling you that she suffers with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Social Phobia and panic attacks. She has to contend with Auto-immune Hepatitis and Arthritis, and as well as her fears and compulsions zapping her of her energy, she also has to deal with pain and exhaustion on a daily basis, too. But in August 2014 Dawn met an angel that would completely change her life for the better. 

That angel was small, black and hairy, and was called Boris...


Boris and Dawn had an instant bond. 


Caring for Boris gave Dawn something to focus on, and it was soon clear that Boris could bring something to Dawn - with time he was registered with RECOVERY 4 Wellbeing, and has trained to become an Assistance Dog. 

Recovery Assistance Dogs do physical tasks to help their owners remain independent, but much more than that they are company and provide invaluable emotional support. The therapeutic benefits of having an animal are well known, and can be a lot of help for people who suffer with social phobias. 



Boris is only a third of the way through his training and it will be a while longer before he graduates. Dawn is improving all the time, and on good days can now venture out with the help of Boris. Dawn and Boris are doing the Parallel Push/Run to raise funds for Boris's training, and to say 'thank you' to the charity for helping them work together to regain some of Dawn's independence. You can visit Dawn & Boris's Crowdfunding Page 



Thank you so much for taking the time to read Dawn and Boris's story. I think you'll agree Boris is extremely handsome and has been such a blessing for Dawn. I'm wishing them all the very best for the 4th of September! Go Team Boris!

Vintage Leaves Stamp Set - Simple Stamping with Sequins


Today's project has three beautifully co-ordinating colours - Old Olive, Bermuda Bay, and Garden Green.

I simply stamped onto Whisper White A4 Cardstock and added some round, gold sequins from the Sequins Metallics Assortment, which were glued on with the Fine Tip Glue Pen. I glued the card front to the card base using Snail Adhesive which is my favourite glue for crafting.

This project has an Autumnal feeling to it - still trying to come out of this mindset!! - but it has been dark and rainy the last few days here in Suffolk so I think it's ok!
