A BIG day!

Today is the official launch of the new 202-21 annual catalogue and once again Stampin UP! have not let us down. The new in colours are just gorgeous and there are lots of new goodies for us all to play with. I have attached a shop now link on the right of my page that will take you my online shop and let you look through the new catalogue, but if you’re like me, and would like an actual copy of the catalogue to look through and keep please let me know and I will send you one out.

These are a few of the cards I have made from some of the lovely new products.

I will try and be a bit more productive with my blog this year.

New Wonders

This stamp set is a joy to play with, especially if you like a bt of sparkle. All of these cards have been “blinged up” by adding clear wink of stella.

These cards were made in one of my cards and a cuppa class. They are mostly one layer card and took very little time to make.

This card had a “happy accident” when the greeting was stamped wonky at the bottom of the card. We just used a strip of die cut card and covered the greeting and no one would be the wiser.

This is a tiny card and literally took minutes to make yet it’s so cute and handy to have in your stash of ready made cards

This is stepping it up a bit and adding layers but again the card was quick to create and the addition of the wink of stella really made the image pop.

I will definitely be playing with this set again in the future. All supplied I used are listed below and can be bought in my online shop. I would love to see what you come up with.

Over The Moon

This is such a cute stamp set! It’s so versatile and I have had great fun playing with it. I made this card for one of my friends and wanted to take myself out of my comfort zone. I decided to play with the stitched nested labels dies and created a frame for my lovely cows.

I stamped each cow and coloured them in. I then cut them out. I masked off the areas in I had cut out and coloured the backgrounds in. I then stamped sentiments into two of the cut out areas.

I then stuck the cows into their spaces and made sure that the card closed properly.

I really enjoyed playing with this and I was happy with the result. I just hope my friend likes it too.

Lovely is the Day

I have managed to find a couple of hours to play in my happy place today, so I have decided to try one of my new stamp sets.

I wanted to see what the different dies from the bundle did and I love this one. It half cuts out the flowers giving beautiful dimension to the card.

For this card I stamped and embossed onto vellum and then hid it behind the embossed frame. I used a stamp from the Praiseworthy Prose set and then embossed that too.

For this last card I embossed the All Wired up background stamp and then put a column of vellum onto the front of the card and then stamped and cut out the flowers. I am enjoying trying this stamp set and the dies from the bundle. It’s always fun to see the different ways I can find to use them.

It’s been a busy few days, my eldest daughter was briefly back from Uni and we drove back up with her to York. My youngest and I then got the train back from York and I went to watch her fly a plane for the first time on her own. Sometimes I cannot believe how lucky I am to have two wonderful daughters, both pursuing their passions. It’s a feeling that I can’t quite explain to watch your 17 year old daughter get into a small plane and fly off into the clouds!

Until next time – Happy Stamping

Leave a Little Sparkle

My youngest daughter is a lover of unicorns. Even though she’s now 17 and training to be a pilot she still loves the magic and the sparkle. I always think there’s room for some glitter on every card 🙂 I stamped the unicorn image onto acetate and used dazzling diamonds. I then cut out a frame and made another shaker card.

I stamped the card with the tiny stars in silver and pretty peacock ink and then used dazzling diamonds in the bottom corner below the sentiment. I attached some of the sequins on the front of the card and used some of the gorgeous foil from the noble peacock suite.

This is a gorgeous stamp set and I know I will be using it a lot in the future. My daughter will be 18 at the end of August and I think the cake toppers will be created using the above stamp. I hope you haven’t all been washed away in all the rain, I have been quite pleased the weathers been bad as it has allowed me to play in my happy place with al my fabulous Stampin Up stash!

Daisy Lane

I love the Daisy Lane Stamp set. It’s what I would call a happy stamp set. It has coordinating punches and is very versatile.

I decided to do something a little different by stamping and embossing the leaves in the background in gold, silver and copper embossing powders. I then overstamped it with mossy meadow.

I then stamped the leaves onto missy meadow cardstock and fussy cut them out. I stamped the daisy in white ink and punched them out. For the centres I used the perennial essence floral centres.

This is quite a different card for me and I am away from my comfort zone but I am quite happy with how it turned out.
