Merry Patterns - Host Promotion From Stampin' Up!

I have a new Stampin' Up! Promotion to share with you today!

It runs from 1st September until 31st October. If you host a Party that makes sales of £250 or more, then you will receive the Merry Patterns stamp set for FREE.

You will also still receive your normal Host Rewards for holding a Party. For Party sales of £250 this means you will also be able to choose any products from our current catalogues or in our Clearance Rack for FREE up to the value of £25.

Alternatively, if you place an order for this amount during the Promotion you will also receive this set for FREE. The order could be just from you or you could get orders from your friends and family and group these together to reach the qualifying sales amount (£250). As the Host, you will receive the stamp set and the normal Host Rewards too :o)

The set is lovely! Here are the images .....

Have a look at this short promotional video from Stampin' Up! for more details .....

This stamp set will never be available outside of this Promotion, so if you fall in love with it - like I have already, you will need to act before the end of October. Why not contact me today to book your Party?

Here is some inspiration for you .......

Another - Background Bits

Here we are again with another Background Bits card! I did say that I had made several ..... there are more to come and I hope you like them!

While playing with new sets, I like to use as many of the images as possible and see what I can do with them. This wasn't a problem with this set at all, I had so many ideas for all of them :o)

I teamed the lovely Berry Burst with Sahara Sand this time and love how well they go together.

I also used both sentiment stamps - isn't the font lovely?

Happiest Of Days - Scrapbook Page

Well .... it's been a long time since I did any Scrapbooking! I'm trying to change that now ..... although this is the only page I've managed to finish in the last few months :o)

I used the beautiful Happiest of Days stamp set. I love the simplicity of this set ... and the gorgeous fonts and images that come with it.

All the flowers were stamped and cut out by hand. I don't mind fussy cutting and find it really relaxing. The flowers are a simple shape though, so even if you hate it, it doesn't take long to do them :o)

The flowers and leaves were all watercoloured using an Aqua Painter and our ink pads. 

The only embellishment is the double bow, created using our beautiful Crinkled Seam Binding.

Beautiful - Background Bits

I'm back with another creation using the Background Bits Hostess stamp set today :o)

If possible, when using a new stamp set for the first time I try to create several projects. I love this set and made lots of cards with it in just one morning :o)

I used our Stampin' Markers to ink up the flowers.

This is such a quick and simple card to create and you could easily swap out the sentiment for a Birthday one to create a gorgeous Birthday card - that's perfect for posting.

Oh So Eclectic

Good Morning :o) 

I inked up another new stamp set from the Annual catalogue this week - Oh So Eclectic. I fell in love with the coordinating framelits for this set, especially the large framelit that does a beautiful diamond cut-outs in your card. Of course even after falling in love with it, I didn't use it for this card!

I chose instead to show you a sneak peek product - the Quilt Top Textured Impressions embossing folder. Now, this is beautiful too - don't you think? :o) I love this design, it's just so pretty. 

You can see I used the Stitched Shapes framelits again - a square one this time - and used one of the Layering Square framelits underneath it. These framelits are an absolute Must Have. I use them all the time (as you are probably aware), they are so lovely to work with. 

I used the Night of Navy and Emerald Envy Markers to ink up the flowers before stamping and cutting out with the framelits.
