New Home stamp set from Stampin’ Up!

I have a new home card to share with you using the Flying Home stamp set from Stampin’ Up!

Flying Home from Stampin Up

When I saw this cute bird and babies in a nest I thought of ‘flying the nest’ so I felt it lends itself to a new home card.

I used the greetings from the Home Life stamp set which were perfect.

Here is how I made the card

  • Stamp the bird and nest onto whisper white in Black Memento Ink.
  • Colour the image with Stampin’ Blends (not shown in the photo below).
  • Punch out a circle using the 2″ circle punch and with the relief I framed the image but left some of the stamp overhanging the outside of the circle and drew a pencil line.
  • Cut around the over hanging parts of the image with scissors.
  • Position the image into the punch and made sure to have the overhang inside the base of the punch so it was not cut off.
  • Simply rub out the pencil line and mount onto a scallop circle from the layering circle framelits and a large smoky slate circle.

Flying Home from Stampin Up

The cloud background was created with the Pattern Party Decorative Masks and Smoky Slate and Soft Sky Ink and a sponge.

The greeting from the Home Life stamp set was stamped on Basic Grey ink and I used my new stamparatus to position the greeting perfectly!  It is amazing, I cannot wait for you to get your hands on one!

I think I am addicted to the Stampin’ Blends, they give such an intense pop of colour.

So if you fancy a little spending spree with Stampin’ Up! don’t forget that you can choose a free sale-a-bration item with every £45 you spend.  Such a great deal and lots of choose from.  The leaflet with all the free choices is shown on the right.

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!

Pinkies Team Reward Day

Pinkies Team Event with Michelle Last

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

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…
