A Sparkly Kit!

I have worked out a fun kit with stamps, ribbons, card and papers which will give you more than enough to play with and make many cards. There is a special bonus gift for all that order before the end of the weekend... anyway just designed this poster, you can look for yourselves :)



Even more

From the Sparkly Set :) I had this idea in bed last night and almost got up to do it!! LOL
I have used the tree in different greens and stacked it up to make a tall tree with a paper pieced pot.

And this one was an idea I had when I saw the santa and reindeer stamps on the table, I made the sleigh from the scalloped square punch and oval punch for the sleigh runners.

Hope you like?

Like a bus

Two along in one space of time... usually in minutes with buses, but two posts in the same day!

Been playing after school today with the lovely Sparkly and Bright set to make a cute card and a candle holder. It actually just sits over a battery tealight.

I have used : Sparkly and Bright set, scallop circle and the 1 3/8 circle punches. The fantastic mat pack and pokey tool (honestly how did I do without the mat pack! - look at my perfectly straight and spaced paper pricking)

To colour the images I have used the Stampin Markers, as I was swapping colours and taking time to stamp the images I "huffed" on the stamps to remoisten the ink before stamping.

On this candle holder I used the Vellum cardstock and white ink for one of the windows, the others I used with the pens. I lovely paper is called Merry Moments.
Thanks for popping back again.

Butterfly Fun

One of the thing, well two actually, of the things I was very excited about getting from the new catalogue was the Flight of the Butterfly set and the butterfly punch! WOW Love these

Here I have teamed up with Autumn Days to create a meadow of grasses and flowers.

This card was a quick and funky colour combo and also shows off the fab eyelet punch.
These were both very quick creations as I havent had much time of late and with Convention looming and all the swaps I need I will have even less.
Speak later

Last post of the Safari

I want to start by saying a HUGE thank you to everyone that took the time to hop about the Safari hop and to Jackie, Shaz, Joanne and Natalie who took time at a very busy time for us SU demos in joining the safari.

Here is my last card for the safari, but I will be back with a little blog candy tomorrow.

I used the Autumn Days set to create a wreath for the little pheasant to stand in. Some lovely chocolate chip ribbon and the word window punch to create the wording.
Once again, thanks for all that came. Check back tomorrow (late) for blog candy.

Sunflower Bunny

I felt like revisiting an old stamp and this is one I got when I went to America in 2000, its from Imaginations.

Sometimes I just like to stamp for fun and this was one of those moments. I have been in SU mode for a while and I know with my parcel arriving Monday (TOMORROW VBG) I will be in SU mode again! so I just wanted to break out into something totally different.

2 Cards to share

Been having fun with these 2 quirky girl stamps. Mum and MIL says she has crazy eyes, well yes I would have crazy eyes with a frog on my head!!
Designs : Kraftin Kimmie stamps, wheel on red card is Stampin Up!
Actually the red card is me, armed folded with a bit of a huff on! My large SU order is in the UK and due for delivery on Monday. I thought maybe I could collect tomorrow morning but another demo has told me that UPS wont allow you to collect unless its already been out for delivery.... do they not know how important it is??! I mean I have tonnes of yumminess in it!

I did say it was going to be yesterday but I didnt get to it what with Beavers ect but here is my card as promised showing off a lovely Anya stamp. I have teamed it up with one of the other flowers from the new SU set and also the word window punch too.

Any questions re my cards just drop me an email.

Flowers are lovely, they cheer you up and remind you of fun times. I love this little set from Stampin' Up! and this is the next stop of the cruise from me.

I made this little card at my launch party this weekend. Simple as simple can be, but everyone liked it.

As well as the FLOWERS FOR ALL SEASONS stamp set I have used wording from TRENDY TREES stamp set and the fabby and much awaited WORD WINDOW PUNCH. I coloured the card with the WATERCOLOUR WONDER CRAYONS and punched the border using the scalloped edge punch.... talking of punches SU have added 5 fabby new punches to their line up. here I show you 3 of my favs...

Word window works with lots of wording stamps throughout the catalogue. Eyelet border is just fab and I cant wait to get this and as for that butterfly punch, well it has a beautiful set to match, so cutting them out will be a breeze.
Seems the safari driver has got his foot down for this leg as its some hours early but I have a busy day tomorrow so would rather post now than forget!
Dont forget its back to Jackie on Weds as the tour continues.
PS I know I said I would be back with a Anya card but I need to go to bed now as I am very tired and have a sore throat :(

I am placing an order in the next few days, if anyone want to tag an order onto it let me know. For orders over £35 I will send it post free! email

All aboard... and we're off!

Do you have your suncream? Binoculars are a must as this morning we are bird spotting..... now if you have been looking at my blog recently you know that I have been playing with GOOD FRIEND rubber stamp set... I LOVE this set... The bird is very cute and I adore the flowers.

Here is a card I made using the Good Friend set for a demo swap I joined

The set comprises of 8 stamps, those being the birds body, his beak and leg. Then there are 4 lovely flowers. The puff flower, the stem, round flower and petal flower (all names I have given them myself!)

Now as a demonstrator we have beeb privvy to the new catalogue for over a month, but only able to order a few things... but now the gag is off I can tell you some more. We've all seen the love blue stripey ribbon I have used above. This was part of the mini catalogue and is in the main catalogue! WHOO HOOO! the biggest WHOO HOOO! is that along with the Bashful Blue, So Saffron and Pretty in pink we have 3 new colours. I am sooooooo excited about this as I love this ribbon and I love love love the new colours. On my first order thats for sure.

Real Red, Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive... isnt it RIBBONTASTIC!
I can also tell you that the paper packs in the single colours are all still in the catalogue and they have added a new colour PERFECT PLUM and the last little gem I am going to leave you with is that we also have CRYSTAL EFFECTS in the new catalogue too. Thats how I made the birdies eye all raised and sparkly.

I will be doing other stuff on my blog today re the new catalogue. Paper share and ribbon shares. but this was the first leg on the Safari... you need to pop to Jackies blog tomorrow.
Catch you later
