Welcome to my new team member

Hi everyone,

A couple of weeks ago I was so delighted to be welcoming another new member to my team. Another person who realised that by joining the Stampin' Up! family she could take advantage of the generous discount off everything in the catalogue. I'm so happy to have another "Paper Daisy" on board and so of course I had to make a card!



The greeting on this card is from a new one in my stash - and it is only available to demos, not to customers. I started off with a Petal Pink card blank and added a coordinating piece of patterned paper from the Bird Ballad pack. I used a small piece of our Very Vanilla Scalloped Lace Trim and die cut the message with a die from the Stitched Labels set. Very simple!


Stampin Your Way To The Top Stampin Up

And of course I had to add something to the inside panel - from the same stamp set!



Along with the card I sent out a "Welcome" pack with some other handmade goodies, some useful info and some product gifts. I'll show you the pack another day!

Meanwhile that's it from me today. Apart from saying that if there is anyone else out there who would like get a discount off all future orders, then why not think about joining my team?

Back soon,

Daisy Lane card swap birthday card

Hi everyone,

Some of you know that I am a member of the Pootles team. Every time there is a new catalogue we arrange a card swap where we are all allocated a group of 6 demos and we make 6 identical cards to send to each other. The aim is to use new products to make cards to inspire each other. 

Today I am showing you the card I made for my group. 


I was so excited when we first got the new catalogue and I saw that there was a new, smaller daisy punch. I have loved the larger daisy punch since it was first introduced a couple of years ago but a smaller one is going to be so useful.



There is a new stamp set to go with the punch which also coordinates with the larger punch - how fab is that?



Of course these come as a bundle and if you buy this you save 10% off the individual prices. 



I used the Subtle embossing folder on the Crumb Cake background panel - this is not new but is a really useful product to have in your stash - makes such a difference to your cards. 

As well as the new bundle, I used one of the new Stitched labels and the leaf stamp from the Floral Essence stamp set - the leaf coordinates with the Leaf Punch. So great how Stampin' Up! does that!


Would you like to see how I made my card? Hop over to my You Tube channel to watch my video by CLICKING HERE or on the image below:

                                   

Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you like my card!

Sewing Card with It Starts with Art

Hi there,

It was my daughter's 26th birthday last week and our present to her was a sewing machine. So I set about thinking about making her an appropriate birthday card. At On Stage in April we were given a Make n Take pack using the It Starts With Art bundle. 
                           It starts with art Stampin Up

We were given a Coastal Cabana card blank, a piece of Whisper White card to stamp the Ribbon Reel image on and a small piece of the coordinating patterned paper. This is the card we were meant to make:


It Starts With Art Stampin Up

I decided to use the pack to make a different card and here is the result:

It Starts With Art Stampin Up

I used the reverse of the patterned paper and arranged the card to show off more of it. I coloured the image with blends and used the "Happy Birthday" greeting from the "Piece of Cake" set.

Would you believe that I forgot to take the card with me when I saw my daughter on her birthday - so she received it late - I hope she liked it. At least we spent the day together. We found a fabulous fabric shop and haberdashery in Brighton and spent a lovely couple of the hours choosing fabrics, patterns and all the bits and pieces she needed to start her sewing hobby. I look forward to seeing what she makes first!
