Stampin' Up! Birthday Blast

Oooh - I'm here again! I'm making a bit of a habit of this!

Just a quicky... this is a card I made with the Birthday Blast stamp set... It just screamed out to be heat embossed in the Gold embossing powder!

It's so hard to get the fantastic effect captured on camera!

Oooh - that's better! Right the month is nearly over and I'll be ordering mid February so start making a list if you want to tag on!

Guy Greetings... 60th Birthday Stampin' Up!

So I'm breaking up the posts about new product with some things from the annual catalogue - there's so much good stuff there I don't want you forgetting in the excitement!

Guy Greetings is a FANTASTIC set and was needed to fill a bit of a gap in male sets. A good friend was 60 last week and I thought I'd share the card I made!

Isn't that lovely?

I was so pleased with that one!

February Stampin' Up! Class - Beautiful You

The first time I thumbed through the catalogue I skipped past this set... then I saw so many ideas on Pinterest I HAD to have it!

So in February we're using this set! Here are the cards we'll be making with Beautiful You.

I know! Isn't it stunning? But I can't take the credit - this was designed by a fellow Pinkie but I can't find the original post so I can credit her (EDITED)******! The Night of Navy and white is fabulous... and the hat and dress use a technique called 'Paper Piecing'...

So the second one doesn't use the Paper Piecing - but we're going to be using the Emboss Resist technique with Masking and Brayering... so that's FOUR techniques so far in February's class!

I think it's pretty effective... can you see what I've done with the hat?

The last card and yet ANOTHER technique - this time one of the Reflection Techniques... and a little shading with the new Watercolour Pencils!

Ah and a Watercolour Wash with the Aquapainters. My goodness this class is a veritable feast of techniques to learn or practice. I hope you can come along!

The 2 available dates are the 6th or the 20th! Book now by texting/phoning or emailing.

So In Love - Stampin' Up!

Well I've been so busy with products from the new catalogue. They are just gorgeous and this stamp set sums it up! So In Love co-ordinates with the So Detailed Thinlit dies and if you buy the bundle you save 10% and so easy to make it up to £45 to get a FREE Saleabration gift too!

The first card is so simple I just love it - I stamped one of the images in a circle then used a stamp from Papillon Potpourri on Vellum, punched it out and voila!

This next card uses one of the thinlit dies...

I coloured it with my Aqua Painter... Isn't the die ... 'to die for'? And here it is a bit closer up!

I've got so many samples lined up I may be posting quite a bit for a while! Watch this space!

Tomorrow I'm showing you another new stamp set! And the cards we're making in February's class!
