Team Reward Day with Michelle Last

I think I’ve told you before that I have the most amazing team.  That is why I held a Team Reward Day for my direct team members to craft, share and inspire one another the day before OnStage.  We met at a local cafe/restaurant and had afternoon tea, fun, games and some crafting as well as an amazing raffle!

It can be a bit crazy at the OnStage event with so many excited people that I love the chance to get together with my direct team to spoil them and reward them for sticking with me.

Pinkies Craft Reward Day with Michelle Last
I organised little gift with thanks to Glen who made the beautiful pencil cases.  I ordered some Pinkie sew on badges and a bone folder with their initial on all packaged up in a cute little envelope.

Hearts Come Home Make and Take project

Hug in a Mug from Stampin’ Up!

Who likes hot chocolate?  Then I have the perfect stamp set for you!  Hug in a Mug from Stampin’ Up! is a really cute and you can make up your mug with different elements to personalise it.

Hug in a Mug From Stampin' Up!

I stamped the mug onto watercolour paper using StazOn so that I could watercolour the mug and add detail using the cute little stamps in this set to customise your mug.  I also used the stitched shape framelits to cut a circle around my stamped image and then sponged the edges using Blushing Bride Ink.

I used my aqua painter to add the base of the mug to ground it rather than leave it floating.

The gorgeous scallop circle framelits were used to cut a Smoky Slate Mount. I just love the pink and grey colour combo.

I punched a hole and tied the tag to a treat tube which was filled with hot chocolate powder.  Those treat tubes are so versatile and can be used for so many things.

Hug in a Mug from Stampin’ Up! for the Global Design Project

Welcome to my blog, today I am sharing a card made with the Hug in a Mug stamp set from Stampin’ Up!  I am casing a card from fellow design team member Allison Okamitsu.  Allison is super talented and an Artisan Design Team Member with Stampin’ Up!, you must go check out her blog.

Hug in a Mug from Stampin' Up!

I just love this little set in the new seasonal catalogue, it’s a great price at £15 and you can make varying mugs with varying contents and make it suit the theme of your card.

I heat embossed the mugs with white embossing powder and then added colour to the mugs using white ink.

The circle sentiment is cut using the Lovely Words Thinlits and the Layering Circle Framelits.

I used my stamp-a-majig to ensure the ‘sending warm thoughts’ to position my greeting in the gap of the die cut.

I added a raised mug stamped onto whisper white cardstock to give a little dimension.

This is the card I cased this week and I would love you to join us this week and make a card with the one below from Aliison as inspiration…

Bike Ride Birthday from Stampin’ Up!

I have made a card for the colour challenge for the Global Design Project using the Bike Ride stamp set from Stampin’ Up!  It is our daughter Amy’s 19th Birthday tomorrow so I made an extra special card with a unique detail personal to our family. I hope it makes you smile.

Bike Ride from Stampin Up

I stamped and die cut the bike frame, wheels etc and added a little basket of flowers on the back of the bike.  Coming very soon in the new seasonal catalogue is this cute little Dachshund so I stamped and die cut him to make him just up at the bike which is exactly what our little Dachshund Pip would do.  If she can get a carry or a lift she’d much rather that than walk!

Here are the colours this this weeks colour challenge with the Global Design Project challenge.

#GDP101

It is a slider card and I added a little greeting on the inside too so there is a little surprise when she pulls it open.

If you have not made a slider card before, I urge you to give them a try as they really add a WOW to a card.

Birthday Delivery from Stampin’ Up!

Today I am sharing a perfect kids/children’s card made using the Birthday Delivery stamp set from Stampin’ Up!

Lovely bright colours and a fancy fold too, what’s not to love all for the Global Design Project theme challenge.

Birthday Delivery from Stampin' Up!

Everything about this card is bright fun and energetic just like the 4 year old who I sent it to!

I heat embossed the greeting from Birthday Delivery with Silver Embossing Powder.  I hand cut the presents from the matching Birthday Memories patterned paper.  The greetings in the Birthday Memories stamp set are designed to fit inside the flag/banner that Mr Fox is waving.

This bundle is so clever as the dies are designed to cut out the characters on the patterned paper as well as the stamped images – so versatile!

I created the tab closure with the envelope punch board and when you open it……

The paper insert is attached to the top fold and moves up and down as you open and close the card 🙂

I really hope you join in with this weeks challenge and make a card for the kids in your family.  Simply pop on over to the Global Design Project to see what the other design team members have made using the same theme and see instructions on how to enter your own card to be in with a chance of being the weekly winner!
