Delightful Daisies in the Middle of Winter!

Delightful Daisies

Back in November I attended the Stampin’ Up! OnStage conference. As part of that I joined with a group of stampers to do a project swap.  I used the Delightful Daisies stamp set in the middle of winter for my make for the other girls.

I, therefore,  laboured for hours over what I would make as it had been a while since I had been to On Stage or joined a swap. I didn’t want to let the other girls down as I know they are an amazingly talented group of girls. I had to really pull the rabbit out of the hat!

Just Breathe

At the end of many hours the Just Breathe sentiment was the last item that I added to the card and it symbolises completing the project and most of all I was able to sit back and look at what I felt was a satisfactory project.

I hope that you like this card and you can find the projects by clicking the link to the right up there!

Simple New Products and Simple New Ideas!

Stampin’ Up is launching their new Annual Catalogue on 1st June and with it come a whole host of Simple and New and fabulous products!

It is so exciting and I love it when the new launch comes around. I am always so happy that many products remain and then seeing how the new products sit alongside them.

I will be featuring some new colours, new products and new ideas over the next few weeks – and I still owe you a video! Its coming I promise…

Hostess Sets

This card featues one of the Hostess Sets – Hand Delivered. I chose this as my first project from the new Catalogue beacuse I always think these are over looked and this one  – in my opinion – is ablsolutely adorable and so versatile!

I have teamed it with a paper from one of the 6×6 stacks of DSP  – this one is called Garden Impressions and features some of the new ‘In Colours’  – more about these in the next post! and I stamped out the skirt and paper pieced it into place!

I have coloured the little flowers, the legs and the placard with Water Colour pencil using colours that match as far as possible.

The card stock is Whisper White and Pacific Point.

As I mentioned – there will be more next time of the new ‘In Colours’ and the whole colour palette refresh – lots to share on this point!

Until next time – remember to stamp your place in the world!


Fancy Fold Male Card (or how to smash at Fathers Day!)

Fancy Fold Male Card

At the end of April and beginning of May I took a small holiday and totally forgot to blog this Fancy Fold Male card for you whilst I was gone!

Male cards are something of a nemisis for me even though I have a house full of men: father, husband and two sons!

I still dread having to make cards for them. Male cards at Christmas…? even worse and usually a complete disaster!

And then…I found this amazing fancy folded card. I would love to say that it was all my own idea..but it was not! The Fancy Fold was something I found on Pinterest (the original idea is from a lady called Samantha Clayton at and I knew instantly that my next male card was going to be made with this fold. Chances are that all of my male cards are going to be made with this fancy folded card!


I work fulltime as well as being an Independant Stampin’ Up! demonstrator so I dont always get everything done that I would like to. However, I am going to put a video out showing how to make this card shape…then stand back and see what you all make of it!

I have used extra thick whisper white card stock, and matched it up with True Gentleman DSP, Gold foil sheets and Night of Navy ink and Trult Tailored stamp set.

The inside of the card is finished with a Birthday Sentiment – I have so many male birthdays in a year!Customers can buy all of these items by clicking the link up there on the right. You can also use the shopping code for a extra benefits with a qualifying order.

I will be back with that video shortly but until then remember to stamp your place in the world!
