Silver Congratulations Card with Memories and More from Stampin' Up



I have said it many time before but signing up as a Stampin' Up demo to get a discount on product I was buying to make my wedding stationary was one of the best decisions I have ever made.

I can't believe that decision has grown into blooming business which is paying for both my crafting addiction and some little treats for my family (and for me too without me feeling guilty!).

I am always thrilled when somebody joins my team, be that for the discount on their own purchases or to start growing their own business too.


This is a card I made to send to one such business builder recently. Lorna is doing a great job growing her own team and recently promoted to Silver. 

The letters are cut out using the Large Letter framelits which I can't stop using at the moment.

The background 'DSP' isn't DSP at all, it a Petal Garden Memories and More card - the gorgeous flower image is a sticker from the same pack - as is the frame for the congratulations sentiment. 

Using the Memories and More card seemed apt as Lorna selected a Memories and More Album and Pocket Pages as a congratulations gift from me. 

Well done Lorna - I am so proud of you.

Stunning Card with Petal Garden DSP by Stampin' Up


When you start with DSP this beautiful, it is easy to make a stunning card.

How lovely is this paper from the Petal Garden DSP stack.


The sentiment some from the Garden in Bloom stamp set - an oldie but a goodie.

I made a few of these cards to send out to some of my team members that recently started growing their own teams - it really is a special feeling when somebody chooses to join your team and so the sentiment felt very appropriate.


I added a little extra interest by cropping the edge of the sentiment with the Stitched Shapes Framelits - isn't it effective. 

The Stitched Shapes Framelits have to be my most used item, I just love them.

Home Life Team Member Welcome Card - Inspiration with Stampin' Up Products


Some times Mondays need a little extra help don't they, so hopefully this card is something bright and cheery to start your week with.

I hope they brought a little smile to the faces of the recipients, I designed them to send out to some lovely new members of my team Stampin' Up team - the SimplyStylishStampers. 

It always makes my day when somebody decides to join my team and I really love sending a little card and gift to say Thanks and Welcome to the Team.


For this card I used the lovely Home Life stamp set and Welcome Home Framelits.

I love this colour combination too, Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise and Lemon Lime Twist. 

I firstly made this card with a plain background but it was just a bit well - flat. Running the mat through the Ruffles embossing folder made such a difference don't you think.

Thank You cards with Oh So Eclectic by Stampin' Up


Yesterday I shared with the gift packaging I had made for all of my Stampin' Up customers.

Now of course there had to be a handmade card to go with it.


I used the Oh So Eclectic Stamp Set for the gorgeous flower and background stamping.

The sentiment comes from Beautiful Bouquet - just like I used for the gift wrapping. 

I made these in a range of colours but forgot to take pictures of them all. 

The one above is Lemon Lime Twist and Dapper Denim.

Below I used Perfect Plum and Sweet Sugar Plum.


I also made a slightly different version - as you can also see above where I have used a die cut flower from the coordinating Eclectic Layers Dies - which do you prefer?


If you received one of these cards, I really hope you liked it.

Gorgeous Gift Pouch with Naturally Eclectic DSP - Video Tutorial featuring July Thank You Gifts


Each month I send out a little gift to all of my Stampin' Up customers.

By very popular demand, I sent out the gorgeous Tranquil Tulips stamp set to everybody that shopped with me in July.

I normally keep the gift a secret but as so many people were asking if it could be Tranquil Tulips, I wanted to make sure nobody missed out so I did announce it was going to be that set.

I still wanted my customers to have a little surprise however so I designed this pouch to hold a pack of Na


I used quite a few packs of DSP making these for everybody, but what a lovely way to show off this gorgeous paper.

The sentiment on the belly band comes from Beautiful Bouquet - this is a current favourite stamp set of mine - it has a lot of really useful sentiments as well as some beautiful images - a great set for a new stamper looking for a bit of everything. 



To watch my video tutorial on how I made the pouch, click HERE.

If you would like to recieve a Thank You gift like this next month, simply shop Stampin' Up with me during August and happy mail will be hitting your door step in early September.

Do try and remember to enter the hostess code shown in the top right corner of this blog if your order is less than £150. This really helps me be able to send out all of these wonderful gifts each month.

Dare to Dream - Card Inspiration with Petal Garden Memories and More Cards


Today's card uses something a little different. 

Would you believe that I have used two of the Petal Garden Memories and More cards?

The background 'dsp' is one of the larger Memories and More cards and I have matted a smaller card on Sweet Sugar Plum card to match the card blank.



The gorgeous leaf vine along the top is pre-printed so all I needed to do was stamp the sentiment in matching colours. 

The sentiment is from the Dare to Dream stamp set - a hostess exclusive that is packed with great sentiments.

I made this card for one of my team members who has just recruited her first team member so the sentiment was very apt.

A little flash of coordinating ribbon and you have a very pretty card in no time.
