Brand New Autumn/Winter Catalogue Out Now...

Hooray - the brand new Autumn/Winter catalogue is out now and absolutely bursting with wonderful Christmas and Autumnal inspiration!!!  If you'd like to take a look at what's available, click on the image below .  Alternatively, contact me and I'll send you one in the post!  It's great to view online if you can't wait, but I'm a bit old fashioned when it comes to catalogues - there's nothing more satisfying than flicking through the pages, and putting post-it notes everywhere to mark the things you like!!  My Christmas catalogue has got a post-it note on almost every page - kinda defeats the object a bit!!!

On top of all the fab new products, Stampin' Up! are also offering an amazing offer for Hostess orders received before the end of October. If you host a party, or place an order of over £200 from now until 31st October, you will receive a FREE exclusive stamp set called Good Greetings.  

You can choose this in either wood or clear, and it contains 19 stamps with some really useful sentiments.

If you are living in the North Devon area (I'm in Barnstaple but am happy to travel), and would like to find out about hosting a party (and the amazing benefits you could receive!), contact me to find out more.

Don't forget, there are only 17 weeks until Christmas!!!


Madeline Joined In The Fun...

Last one of these - this is Madeline's card that she made when my sister came round.  

This one has been made using Tangelo Twist card and ink, with the sentiment from
@SoSocial.  As before, the flower is from the Something to Say stamp set, and then punched with the coordinating  Itty Bitty Accent Punch set.

These cards are so quick and easy, and really effective.  By stamping more than once before re-inking (all of mine were stamped three times before re-inking), it gives the impression of using different shades of the same colour.  Madeline was very pleased with her efforts, and was quite excited to think that I was going to put it on my blog - so, Madeline, here it is.  If you like her card, please leave her a comment ...

Say Something...Happy Birthday...

My sister came to play, and here is what she came up with. She started off using Strawberry Slush, but I didn't have any ribbon the right colour.  We found this piece of ribbon that was almost Coastal Cabana so we quickly added a few extra flowers in Coastal Cabana to tie everything together.

The sentiment and the flower comes from the Something to Say stamp set, and the flowers were punched using the coordinating Itty Bitty Accent Punch set.

I like adding the second colour, and there are so many combinations that would work really well.  What combinations have you tried?

Thanks for popping by!

Here is the second version of my previous post.  Apologies for the long gap between cards but we took the children away for a few days, and silly old me thought I'd have time to do a few posts once the children had gone to bed - oh no!! We had such busy days, and late nights, that as soon as the children's heads hit the pillow, they were asleep, quickly followed by me!!!

So, later than promised, here is the next card.  This one has been made using Blackberry Bliss card and ink, with the new matching Stitched Satin Ribbon. The stamp sets are the same as before, 
@SoSocial plus the heart from the Something to Say stamp set. The hearts were then punched with the coordinating  Itty Bitty Accent Punch set, and 'blinged' with the occasional rhinestone jewel.

More to follow soon!!

These cards are really quick and easy and are great to make as 'stock' cards, to add sentiments to later.  They are also a great way to showcase the new In Colors 2014-16.

This card has been made using Lost Lagoon card and ink, with the new silky Taffeta Ribbon from the Autumn Winter catalogue.  If you'd like a copy of this catalogue, just let me know.  The stamp sets used are 
@SoSocial which includes some great @'s and #'s (awesome stamps according to Madeline!!) plus the Something to Say stamp set which has the lovely star image used above. The stars were punched with the coordinating  Itty Bitty Accent Punch set.

 There are lots of versions to see online - take at look at the very talented Julie (my SU mum!) and Michelle Last's blogs for more ideas (sorry - can't find the link direct to Michelles cards).

There are more versions to share with you over the next few days!!

Happy stamping
