Climbing Orchids Stamp Class


Morning Everyone,

Hope you are all well and enjoying this lovely weather.  We had a couple of rainy days here so a little break from watering our allotment!
My youngest passed his Degree in Mathematics so I have been a taxi driver to interviews since the beginning of this week.

Back to crafting, We used the beautiful Climbing Orchids Bundle for this week's Stamp Classes.  Oh its so lovely to stamp with.  I also used the single Happy Birthday stamp called the Stylized Birthday.

We made extra large cards for a change, or this class has three different sized cards plus a huge and and I mean huge 6" x 6" matching gift box.


I chose a Colour combination of Tranquil Tide, Early Espresso, Sahara Sand and Sweet sugarplum.

We mixed up the stamping as well.  The stamp set has to different orchids so why not try out the other design as well.



 

If you want to play along the instructions are on the right hand side,
All my class instructions have centimetres and inches included.


Thanks for looking,

Stampin' UP! Colour Coordination


Good Morning,

Some colour inspiration for you this morning. 
 Stampin' UP! has such a range of colour possibilities!

My downline Jill Lackford made one of these frames using the new daisy punch last week and one by one the rest of our Bloomin' Buds team are making one.  The frames are from the range.

If you look on page 183 of our main catalogue you will find the list of all the colours of cardstock.  Our cardstock is available in two sizes A4 or 12" x 12" to suit your crafting needs.  It's dyed all the way through, acid and lignin free.  
Stampin' Up! have a variety of colours in 5 collections called Brights, Subtles, Regals, Neutral and In Colours.  Pick them from the collections or mix and match them for different looks.

Our ink pads are firm foam pads with flip-top lids so the ink stores upside down, making sure the ink is always ready to use.  The ink is fast drying, dye based and acid free.

We have reinkers for all our inkpads, which can also be used for colouring techniques like spritzing.



We have Ribbon, Trims, Designer series paper all coordinate with each of the Stampin' Up Colours.


What's your favourite colour?

Thanks for looking,
Jenny:-)xx

Graceful Garden Stamp Class


Hello Everyone,

I am back!  Been away on holiday with my family to Amsterdam.  We stayed in a little seaside town of Zandvoort which was nice and then caught the train into Amsterdam a couple of the days.

It was a bit busy I can tell you.  I felt like I went on holiday with a group of school children, we were all abit worn out with trying not to get knocked over by the Trams, Cars, Cyclists etc.  

Poor Sid was glad to get back home I think hee hee.

Anyway, we are back stamping Yay! Had a lovely week crafting with my customers and downline.

I chose the Graceful Garden for this week's stamp class.  My dear friend Janette wanted to do a File Holder for her cards in her craft room, so this is what I came up with.  It uses normal sized cardstock ie A4 or 8 1/2" x 11" sized cardstock so great if you haven't got any 12" x 12"


The class instructions has a larger version of the single one as well as a little Bonus.


These are the cards we made to go with the card holder.  Would make a lovely gift.

If you want to play along, then the instructions are on the right hand side of my blog,

Need any Stampin' UP! products then my Shop is on the left hand side.

Check back tomorrow for this week's customer gift ideas.


Thanks for looking,

Wood Crate Stamp Class


Good Morning Everyone,

Think its going to be warm here today, which is lovely.  The birds were so loud this morning as well, which is just lovely.

For my Open House display I had made some cards using the wood crate framelits bundle and my ladies wanted to make them so these are the projects we made this week.

For my Bigshot class a few weeks back we made this little gift set, using the crate to house 6 cards and their matching envelopes.  I have included the instructions with this main class as a little bonus.

You could probably get 8 cards and envelopes in it but I wrapped it in one of our large clear bags and didn't want to squash up the popped up layers too much.  I used the envelope punch board for the envelopes which are in the new fresh florals papers.


The stamp class uses the Jar of Love stamp set and framelits for all the flowers etc.

This card does fold and fits in a normal envelope yet has a wow factor when displayed.  I loved making this card and thought of it straight away for my Open House back in May.


Another look and a gift box with a lid for another idea.

All the crates are stamped with the hardwood stamp set.


The Class instructions are on the right hand side,

Thanks for looking and have a lovely day.

Stampin' UP! Catalogue for 2017/18 is up and running....


Morning Everyone,

Well today is the 1st of June which means we have a brand new Stampin' UP! Catalogue,

I'm so excited for this catalogue, there truly is lots of new goodies that may have just fallen into my basket this morning.

Last Friday was my Open House, I always have a Launch Party when a new catalogue comes out.  The next one will be a Christmas one, Yikes!

These are all my samples I managed to make using the Preorder goodies that I ordered.

We have been playing with the New Daisy Delight Bundle this week for Stamp Class,

Its a Bundle for £27.75 which includes the Daisy Punch and matching Stamp Set on page 127 in the catalogue.  The papers are so lovely.  They are a watercoloured set which includes the Night of Navy which really makes the sentiment pop.



These are the Colour Theory Suite of products, they have papers that look like paint cards and crackle effect, so pretty.  See page 146 for the full range of products.


We have new glitter dots as well, delish!




I took inspiration from the page layout in the catalogue which really is a great source of inspiration.


The tiny little wooden crate here is a new framelit, oh so many....


If you want to place an order, just click on the top left hand corner to shop with me now.  I'd love to send you a little gift.  

Thanks for looking,
Jenny:-)xx

Eastern Beauty Scrapbook Class



Morning everyone,

We made these Scrapbook Pages yesterday for Scrapbook Club using the Eastern Beauty Stamp Bundle which is available early this month before the New Stampin' UP! Catalogue goes Live on the 1st June.

Loving the New In Colours for 2017/2019.  You actually get three of the new colours in the bundle as well and those are what I have used for these pages.

The little images really pop up but its so hard to photograph, to show you.
The framelits make this easy.


Here's both pages together, Just need to print off some photo's to put on them now.

We have been making a few male themed cards in Stamp Class the last couple of weeks.

The stamp sets are Nailed It and Birthday Blast.  The colour combination is Basic Grey, Smoky Slate, Delightful Dijon and Very Vanilla. 

The papers are the Urban Underground designer series pack.


The Nailed It has a matching framelit set to cut out the tools.

This is a little apron with the badge punch for the pockets.

The sentiment is from Guy Greetings.



This is the Happy Father's Day one.  I added the three tiny images on to one clear block to stamp with them.  Love the metal embellishments in this suite.



We made a pop and twist card for the Birthday Blast stamp class.


This is it folded and a large box for giving a tie.
