Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers

This is my first colouring attempt with the Stampin’ Blends.  I am a novice colourer but so happy to have a new colouring medium to enhance my crafting.

I made a card to recognise an amazing accomplishment by one of my team.  My team member Sam Hammond reached her 600,000 CSV sales milestone.  That means she has sold LOTS of Stampin’ Up! products.

I made an eclipse card using the newly introduced Color Me Happy Stamp set.

How I made the Eclipse card
  • I drew a line to attach the lanterns to using the Basic Black Stampin’ Write Markers.
  • I stamped the lanterns from the Color Me Happy stamp set with Memento Black Ink at different heights.
  • I began to colour each lantern using the new Stampin’ Blends.  I coloured a small area with the darker shade and then used the small nib of the lighter shade to blend and combine both shades.  (There are some great video tutorials shared below).
  • I then used the sentiment from This LIttle Piggy which says – She believed she could… and so she did and masked and stamped in the top left and bottom right corner.
  • I used the Numbers for You Die set to cut out the 600,000 and then stuck the numbers back in place with dimensionals to raise them up.
  • A final flourish of sequins and my card was complete 🙂

Numbers for You Eclipse Card

Sam and I recently took a little shopping trip to Bicester Village and more specifically the Michael Kors shop so I picked out a lovely new purse to match one of the bags she bought.  She so deserved to be spoiled.

Advent Calendar using Stampin Up Supplies

I just wanted to share this beautiful advent calendar I received from one of my team Kim Meiklejohn.  I was so touched by this personal gift and have enjoyed opening each envelope each day and being greeted with a new flavour of tea from Fortnum and Mason no less!

Each day has a little pocket with a tea bag inside and Kim used the large number framelits to add each day of December to the envelope.

I am so touched that Kim thought of me and also that she took the time to make something handmade, I encourage you to take the time to make something handmade and share over the holiday season.

I have also received so many cards congratulating me on my awards at the recent Stampin Up OnStage events, Christmas cards and gifts too!  I have not had a moment since I got back from my holiday as I have caught a horrible cough and cold but I wanted to let the thoughtful people know that their kindness is much appreciated and it means so much to me – thank you!

#GDP024 using Number of Years from Stampin’ Up!

This week the Global Design Project are casing one of my very own cards!  How cool is that?  I needed to make an 18th Birthday card for a special person and decided to make a shaker card using the sketch and the Number of Years Stamp set and matching dies.

I absolutely love the Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper too so that inspired me on what colours to use.
