From The Herd. Love it!

Are you gaining a sense of my passion for Stampin’ Up! and the products that they have? I just love it. They are all individual and just so different to the standard craft supplies. From the Herd is a perfect example of this. When I first saw it I wasn’t sure I liked it. Then I saw some of the ideas from the official Stampin’ Up! team about what could be done with it and I fell in love.

This card simply uses one of the animals from the stamp, it’s bright and breezy and I love it.

Take a look at this example from fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrator Michelle Last.

Mini Treat Bag – Wedding Invite

I was thinking to myself about wedding stationery and trying to come up with an idea for something different. Using the mini treat bag die and the “that’s the ticket” stamp set along with the “sophisticated serifs” stamps this is what I came up with.

Wedding Invite

I would print the details on a piece of card enclosed in the package. The initials could either be printed on the invite or static on the bag.

Age Awareness – The perfect name for a stamp set!

When I saw the age awareness stamp set I knew I had to have it! Do you remember everyone’s birthday now you can see it on facebook? Well here is the perfect stamp set! Let’s be honest who could remember that many birthday’s anyway?

I also love the jokey age awareness day stamps that come with the set. Perfect for those with a sense of humour.

Thinking of Valentine’s Day gifts? There’s a mini treat bag for that!!

Yes I know, but it’s my most favourite thing at the minute. I told you last week how versatile the mini treat bag die is but here is a valentine’s version with a cut out acetate heart in the middle. The heart die comes with the mini treat bag die so no need to purchase extra!

Mini Treats Bags – for any occasion!

Here are some more treat bags I’ve made with the mini treat bag thinlit dies. It comes with the dies that punch the hearts and stars along with a host of other mini dies suitable for use of any project. If you want to give a gift voucher these bags are great for making it look prettier and more thoughtful.

One of these treat bags I went out of my comfort zone and used Old Olive – a colour I have so far avoided but I’m pleased with the results.

Birthday Card using the new sale-a-bration Irresistibly Yours Paper

I love the sale-a-bration Irresistibly Yours papers. They are simply gorgeous. They are part glossy which means it resists the ink so you can ink over it and part will remain white. The catalogue really doesn’t do this stuff justice. Here is my make with it. Using the postage stamp punch I simply punches 4 shapes from the paper which I had covered in real red ink. I then used tempting turquoise card stock and dsp (designer series paper) to match. I also used the new bow builder punch which is one of the most popular new items.

I do love the new One Tag Fits All stamp set! It’s so versatile, and you can be so creative with it! Here I have used the duck new baby stamp to create this colourful new baby card. The coloured in ducks are coloured with the Stampin’ Up! blendabilites, although I’ve only used one colour pen on each.

Zoo Babies Bright New Baby Card

What do you think about this take on a new baby card? I love using the Zoo Babies stamp set and was looking to create something a little different. So went for the brights collection of colours. Not everyone wants standard pink & blue so I’m hoping someone will like this one!
