New Stampin’ Up In Colours 2017-2019

Do you want to see the new In Colours 2017-2019 arriving in the new catalogue in June?

I have been playing with new stuff and have fallen in love with the new colours.  They compliment out current range so well and are really lovely rich jewel colours.

I used a new sentiment set too. You are going to love it, its called Colorful Seasons and come with matching dies.

Birthday Blooms & Hexagons Embossing Folder

This week at the Global Design Project we are casing the designer and guess what the designer is ME!  It is a bit strange casing yourself but it was easier that I thought.

Birthday Blooms & Hexagons & Embossing Folder

How I created my card

I embossed the background using the Hexagons Dynamic Embossing Folder which gives a really deep emboss to the whisper white card.  I mounted the white onto silver foil to pick up the heat embossed greeting.

Can you see the subtle sparkle on the flower?  I used my Wink of Stella.

I used the layering circles framelits to create a focal point to add the beautiful flower from Birthday Blooms which I coloured using the Calypso Coral and Old Olive Watercolour pencils and an Aqua Painter.

Birthday Blooms for #GDP084

I stamped the flower from Birthday Blooms using Basic Grey Archival Ink from Stampin Up and cut around the coloured image.

The scallop circle frame was raised with foam adhesive strips and the friend word is from the Oh Happy Day card kit stamps.  Here is the card we all have to case this week, why don’t you join us and make something casing my card below?  You can case any element, the design, colour scheme, products used it is up to you, I would love to see what you come up with.

Falling Flowers from #GDP083

I hope you are all having a lovely Easter.

This week over at the Global Design Project we are making projects which are sparkly or bling.

I am not normally known for sparkles and don’t have a strong love of glitter but I used out heat and stick powder and our dazzling diamonds glitter on the Falling Flowers Bundle as the heat and stick keeps the glitter on the card.   Heat & Stick is being discontinued so if you love it I encourage you to stock up.

#GDP083 Falling Flowers from Stampin Up

It is wedding season and I decided to use Falling Flowers and Better Together for the sentiment.  I stamped the background with soft sky ink and the beautiful swirly stamp onto whisper white cardstock.

I then stamped several flowers and leaves in versa mark and sprinkled over the heat and stick powder and heat set and whilst the glue from the Heat & Stick was still tacky I sprinkled over the Dazzling Diamonds glitter which then sticks in place without rubbing off.

I then die cut the flowers and leaves with the matching May Flowers Framelit dies.  You only have until the end of May to stock up on this bundle of stamps and framelits at a 10% discount.  They are going into the new annual catalogue but they won’t be offered at a discounted bundle.

The greeting/sentiment is from Better Together which I heat embossed in white onto vellum.

#GDP083 Falling Flowers from Stampin Up & Better together

It is so sparkly and I raised the flowers up on dimensionals and added a pearl to the centre of the flowers.

So I really hope you are going to play along this week and make something of your own which is sparkly/blingy and upload to the Global Design Project.

Let’s pop on over to see what the other design team members have made using this same theme, you are sure to be blown away.

#GDP083

All the items I have used to make this card are available from my online shop.  Be sure to grab the Falling Flowers Bundle before the end of May to get it at a 10% discount when buying the stamps and framelits together.

Wishing you all a wonderful week.  I’m am taking our daughter back to Uni tomorrow.

Team Gifts for Stampin Up OnStage

I hope you are having a wonderful Easter weekend.

I promised I would be back with more gifts which I shared with my team at the Stampin’ Up! OnStage event in Amsterdam.

I had a gift for my direct team members who went to the OnStage event.  I was given this bag by one of my friends and team members Nicole and it planted a little seed at what a lovely gift this would be to share with my team.

I purchased the initial bags from Next and then added sweeties, pens and highlighter as we were to receive a copy of the brand new Annual catalogue whilst at the event.

Statement of the Heart from Stampin Up

I included a swap inside the bag and also handmade a magnetic closure bookmark for their new catalogue which had the Stampin Up Statement of the Heart on it.

Statement of the Heart from Stampin Up

It is such a lovely reminder as to why we do what we do and perfectly represents Stampin’ Up!

I used the layering squares framelits and a little heart from the Enamel Shapes.

I also organised a team dinner at a very swanky restaurant near the conference centre call The Roast Room.

I wanted to create a table plan and rather than make name plates for each place I decided I would make a frame with a personalised quote for each person unique to them.

I slipped them inside the little glassine gift bags and cello bags and made a matching tag and added their names.

Birthday Blossoms Gift Tags from Stampin Up

I had a real near miss as I had two Lisa’s at the dinner and realised shortly before they looked at their gift that I had them the wrong way round!  It was seriously a close shave when you know that one of the frames quoted
‘If anyone breaks your heart, punch them in the face, seriously punch them in the face and go get ice cream’.

We had a lovely evening and got to hang out and meet our fellow US demo’s Janet Wakeland, Lisa Pretto and Georgia Giguere who had travelled from the US to enjoy OnStage in Amsterdam.

Pinkies Team Dinner in Amsterdam

And finally we had a celebratory event held by Stampin Up at a local hotel which included a Michelin * dinner and dancing along with a lovely gift of a new stamp set and apron.

Centrestage Dinner at OnStage Amsterdam

I gave a gift to those who attended, they work hard to reach the title of Silver Elite to be invited and I wanted to know I really do appreciate them.  Inside these gift bags were some planner goodies as we are all planner geeks.

And finally we managed to organise a team photo, nearly everyone made the photo and I really enjoy working alongside all these wonderful ladies from across Europe.Pinkies Team Photo with Michelle Last
