Stylized Birthday ~ Singular Stamp

Stylized Birthday Stampin' Up!

Today's Stampin' Up! project has been made with one of the singular stamps from the catalogue - that is a stamp that is available to purchase on its own and isn't part of a set.

The Stylized Birthday stamp is big enough to make the perfect sentiment for a card front - it comes wood-mounted and costs £9.00 - it's gorgeous! Perfect for quick and easy cards.

Baker's Box Thinlits Dies

Good morning and welcome, 

Today's project is made by Stampin' Up! and is a beautifully decorated box - the box itself has been made using the Baker's Box Thinlits Dies for the Big Shot die-cutting machine, which we also sell at Stampin' Up!

Baker's Box Thinlits Dies Stampin' Up!

The penguin is from the gorgeous Snow Place stamp set and has been cut out using the Snow Friends Framelits Dies using the Big Shot.

As you can see the Snow Place stamp set is fairly Christmassy but you can use it in a way that doesn't look Christmassy at all, like the project above.

Snow Place Stampin' Up!

The project has been finished off using the Metallic Foil Doilies (you can see the back) and some Mini Striped Ribbon in Cucumber Crush.

I really hope you like this project, so much fun!

If you click on the names of the products you can view them in the Official Stampin' Up! Store - please feel free to drop me an email if you need any assistance.

Fairy Celebration with Aqua Painters


Hi everyone!
Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Today's project is a card featuring a fairy from the Fairy Celebration stamp set, which is available in wood-mount and clear-mount. I stamped this in our Basic Black Archival Ink and used Aqua Painters to carefully watercolour in.

The Fairy Celebration stamp set is pictured below and is full of fairy fun:
Fairy Celebration, Stampin' Up!
It features 8 rubber stamps - four images and four sentiments. It has a real Flower Fairies feel about it, which is even more apparent once you colour these lovely fairies in. You can change the look of the fairies by using different colours and different backgrounds - they'd look lovely embossed in black and coloured with pencils.

Back soon, don't hesitate to get in touch with any questions you may have,

Acorny Thank You

As we move through August the nights are getting darker and cooler, and the early mornings have a distinct Autumnal feel to them... Autumn is definitely getting closer and no doubt this will be reflected in our crafting! 

Today's projects by Stampin' Up! (found on page 36 of the Annual Catalogue - online link to the left of this page) reflect the change in seasons... I love these projects so much!

Acorny Thank You, Acorn Builder Punch, Stampin' Up!

These cards were made using the Acorny Thank You stamp set and the Acorn Builder Punch - these two items go hand-in-hand and make for a super-quick craft.

The Acorny Thank You stamp set:

Our punches are heavyweight and great quality:

Over the Rainbow ~ Photopolymer Stamp Set

Over the Rainbow, Photopolymer Stamp Set, Stampin' Up!

Today's projects have been made by Stampin' Up! using the gorgeous Over the Rainbow stamp set:

The sky's the limit with this stamp set! This is a Two-Step Stampin’ set, which gives you so many creative options - combine individual stamps to build the final image you want in the colours you want. Build a rainbow or clouds with the brush stroke stamp, stamp colourful splotches over words, or make a sun peek out from behind a cloud.

Over the Rainbow, Photopolymer stamps, Stampin' Up!

I have this set personally (it moved over from the last Annual Catalogue) and as it is so much fun to play with it always leaves me feeling cheery!

Our photopolymer stamps are great for bending on the block, combining with others on the block and because they're clear they're easy to position on your project.

Heat & Stick Powder

Heat and Stick Powder, Stampin' Up!

Use the following steps to get the most out of our Heat & Stick Powder from Stampin' Up!

1. Use a Versamark Ink Pad (nice and sticky) or even one of our Classic Stampin' Pads (if you want colour behind your glitter...) and stamp your image.

2. Pour the Heat & Stick Powder over the stamped image. I do this on top of a folded piece of A4 paper to catch the powder.

3. Shake off the powder and use the folded paper to funnel the excess back into the pot. Tap (or flick) the back of the project if you have stray bits.

4. Use your heat tool to heat the Heat & Stick Powder. Heat until it looks like a liquid.

5. Pour your Dazzling Diamonds (or other Stampin' Up! glitter) onto the image whilst it is still hot and liquid-looking.

6. Shake off the excess glitter.

7. Heat your image again for a couple of seconds (only!) to set it in place. Voila!

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about Stampin'Up! products, my email is below... thanks for stopping by my blog today,

Snow Place - Get Ready for Christmas

Snow Place stamp set, Stampin' Up!

Hi there!
Today's project is a lovely Christmas card - yes, yes, I know - you're probably thinking it's a bit early for Christmas, but it's not unusual at all for us crafters to get ready around about July. There are actually many card-making blogs and challenge blogs that concentrate on Christmas cards all year round.

I haven't got myself organised yet - each year I say I'm going to make my Christmas cards and I have to be honest and tell you that I (nearly always!) fail miserably. This year I will intend to get them made, but we'll just have to see what happens. Fingers crossed!

Today's project has been made using the Snow Place stamp set from Stampin' Up! which is just so much fun!
Snow Place, Stampin' Up!

The characters have been cut out using the Snow Friends Framelits by running them through the Big Shot and the background has been cut out using the Lots of Labels Framelits in Vellum Cardstock.

Isn't it a lovely card?

Jar of Love

Jar of Love, Stampin' Up!

Good morning!
Today's project is just gorgeous, isn't it? Like all the projects I've shared recently this is from the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue (page74/75) and is so easy to recreate.

All you need to make these Shaker Cards are some Window Sheets, some sequins and/or punched pieces, and the stamp set and dies of your choice.

In this case the stamp set used is Jar of Love and the matching Everyday Jars Framelits Dies - these are available individually, or together (saving 10%) as a bundle. Don't forget you'll need a Big Shot to be able to run the dies through.

Jar of Love, Stampin' Up!
I adore this stamp set - so versatile - and you get a lot of stamps for your money; there are 37 photopolymer stamps in this set in total. Perfect for those Autumnal greetings cards.

You can shop the Official Stampin' Up! shop by clicking on any of the highlighted words in this article, or by using the Shop Now button at the top of this page. The shop is secure and you can buy Stampin' Up! products 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year. Fantastic.

Happy shopping!
