2 September 2012 – It’s here!!

It’s so exciting, the new Stampin’ Up! 2012-2013 Catalogue is here!!!

There are so many gorgeous new stamps, designer series papers to die for, ribbon to drool over and Big Shot dies!!  My heart is happy!!  You will be excited to know that we have virtually the same catalogue as the US market, which is great news!

We are also launching the very first Seasonal Catalogue at the same time.  The mini catalogues have been replaced by Seasonal Catalogues.  They are available longer, (this one is here until 31 January), and are bigger.  I have to say that the Christmas range is fabulous!!  I’ve got some of it and it is great!!

If you would like to receive a copy of both, please contact me with your postal details, and I’ll send one out to you.  Or you can host a party and receive all the amazing hostess beneifts!!

Today’s card is using one of the new big shot framelits, Apothecary Accents.  I love framelits!!  They are so easy to use and look fab.  I have cased this card.

28 August 2012 – Sneak Peak 2

Wow, posting 2 days in a row, Amazing, I know!!

I found the next card on Pinterest here.  I think this is a really sweet little card which you can whip up quickly and just change the greeting.  I’ve used the postage stamp punch to add a bit of detail around the image.

Stamps:  Betsy’s Blossoms, Kindness Matters

Ink:  Daffodil Delight, Rose Red, Marina Mist, Wild Wasabi

Paper:  Crumb Cake (Mum’s favourite!), Whisper White

Accessories:  (What, no big shot!) Postage Stamp Punch

I have cased this one from Pinterest here, from Andrea Walford.  I love her cards and I’m so glad that she has started posting Stampin Up! cards again on her blog.  I made a couple of changes to the card and I used the Memorable Moments stamp set and the matching Labels Collection framelits.  Love it when it all matches and fits perfectly!!
