The following card/ gift card holder has been made using the “Whimsical words” stamp set and also “Happy Moments”  Both of these stamp sets are available for FREE with every purchase of $100 from the main or mini catalogue.

The technique used on this card is known as “Emboss resist” 

1.  Stamp randomly over the white cardstock in versamark ink

2.  While the ink is still wet- sprinkle white embossing powder over the stamped areas

3.  Tap off any excess

4.  Use a heat tool so that the embossing powder melts.  (It will be difficult to see the stamped image- but you will definitely be able to feel the embossed areas as they will be raised)

5. Select 3 ink colours and collect 3 sponge daubers.  Using the sponge daubers apply the ink in circles

6.  When the white area has been completely covered the image underneath will be revealed

7.  Using a tissue or paper towel- rub over the entire area so that the white embossing shows through clearly.

Only TWO weeks


Only two weeks remain….

Only two weeks remain until the end of sale-a-bration.  That means only two weeks remain to collect your free Sale-a-bration stamp set with every $100 order.   Only two weeks until the end of the Summer Mini catalogue.  Only two weeks to order your items from the Summer Mini catalogue (before those items possibly retire and may not be available again)

On a personal level- only two weeks remain for me to qualify for an Incentive available through Stampin’ Up! so now- MORE THAN EVER- your orders would mean SO much to me!    

If I can help you out with your ordering needs- I  would love to hear from you….there are only two weeks!

Here is a card I created using a stamp from the “Whimsical words” stamp set. (One of stamps in the set that you can receive for FREE with every $100 order)

I have used the divine RASPBERRY TART designer series papers.  Just love, love, love this pack of patterned paper!

The greeting in the centre “happiness always” forms part of the free stamp set.  It might be hard to make it out in the photo but the background of this area has been stamped with a stamp from “Razzle Dazzle” in Pink pirouette.  I have punched out the greeting with the oval punch and layered it on the scallop oval punch.  Perhaps if I show you a different angle- it may be easier to see.  Oh and you can also see the lovely butterfly stamp from the “Dreams du Jour” Stamp set.

This is the inside of the card- completed by my son.  Note the use of the “Razzle Dazzle” stamp set on the background and also on the envelope.

I can’t wait to hear from you with your orders and or workshop bookings- In case you missed it- There are ONLY TWO WEEKS left!

Here’s a quick card I whipped up for my nephew.  Can you guess his age?  I think the candles are probably a bit much but they matched the sentiment from Whimsical Words

One thing I have come to learn since becoming a demonstrator is that Stampin’ Up! is committed to making a difference in the lives of others. 

“On 12 January, 2010 a magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti, leaving in its wake devastation so overwhelming that the Haitian people and their leaders can only look for help from the outside to cope. In the past, when terrorists attacked the Twin Towers, when a tsunami struck Indonesia, when a hurricane destroyed New Orleans, and when wildfires ravaged Australia, Stampin’ Up! demonstrators stepped forward and showed their commitment to making a difference in the lives of others. This time is no different.”

In an effort to make a difference in the lives of those who continue to suffer from the effects of this devastating earthquake, Stampin’ Up would like to encourage to take part in their fundraising efforts  

For every I {Heart} Hearts stamp set that is purchased before the 28th February Stampin’ Up will donate $2 from every sale to the American Red Cross’ Haiti Relief and Development Fund. The Red Cross is already well-established in Haiti, and this money will be used to provide immediate relief and long-term support through supplies, technical assistance and other support to help those in need.

Contact me to order your I {heart} hearts Stamp set for only $42.95

This stamp set is on page 6 of the Summer Mini Catalogue.  It is a set of eight stamps- two of which co-ordinate with Stampin’ Up!’s heart punches. 

Product Name  Item #  Price 
I {Heart} Hearts  117715  $42.95

I have used the heart stamp with the gorgeous flourishes for the following card.  I have also stamped and layered this on the heart image comprised of dots.    I think the Bella Bleu Designer series paper matched with Kraft Cardstock and Kraft ribbon makes for an elegant card.


Here is the inside of the card…….
