Stampin' Up! Swallowtail

This was the second card we made last week at class. I'm happy to say that this stamp has seen ink many times over the two or so years I've owned it. It has such gorgeous details and makes for a quick and easy card. The photo doesn't do it justice, but I've covered it in clear Wink of Stella and it makes the card really pop in real life. 

Stamps: Swallowtail, Awesomely Artistic, Happy Happenings (Greeting), Petite Petals
Ink: Island Indigo, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake
Card: Very Vanilla
Accessories: Linen Thread, Clear Wink of Stella, Sponge

Sneak Peak... Confetti Celebration

Here's one of the make 'n takes we made at the last Onstage Event. It was such fun playing with the new goodies from the 2016-17 annual catalogue, long before they were available, even to pre-order.

If you are a demonstrator, then do yourself a favour and make sure you get yourself along to the next Stampin' Up! Onstage event! They are so worth it and is one of the awesome perks of being a demonstrator. I attended the one in April which was a bit touch and go whether I would get there, due to my work commitments. I'm so glad I made it :-)

And, if you're not a demonstrator but you'd like to join in the fun and attend all the special events that are on offer with Stampin' Up! - then contact me today and let me tell you how.

A Whole Lot of Lovely

These were the cards that I made for my customers who have placed an order with me this month. I've used the hostess stamp set A Whole Lot of Lovely along with some of the in-colours which are retiring at the month and I've just realised that the sunburst framelits retired last year - whoops. Fortunately, the large polka dot embossing folder is carrying through, which I'm happy about. 

Stamp: A Whole Lot of Lovely
Card: Tangelo Twist, Whisper White, Lost Lagoon, Blackberry Bliss
InkTangelo Twist, Lost Lagoon, Blackberry Bliss
Accessories: Basic Pearls
Tools: Big Shot, Sunburst Framelits (retired), Itty Bitty Shapes Punch set (retired).
