Year of Cheer Gift Box with Mini Ornaments - Video Tutorial with Stampin' Up Products.

I have a very stylish little gift box for you today. 

It uses the very pretty Year of Cheer DSP, every sheet is nicely foiled, this one features gold and silver snow flakes.


The box is really easy to make and it is deceptively large, you can fit quite a lot of goodies in there. 

The heat embossed sentiment comes from Tags and Trimmings, I have cropped it out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits. As I say in the video, I really don't know how I survived without these framelits. 

I have added two of the Mini-Ornament embellishments - it just adds an extra touch of luxury.

Happy Anniversary with Petal Garden Memories and More Cards from Stampin' Up



This is a card I made a little while ago for a member of team who was celebrating their 1st year anniversary as a Stampin' Up demonstrator.

As I celebrated my 4 year anniversary on Friday, this seemed like an apt time to share it with you. 


My card is based on a fabulous Petal Garden Memories and More card - these are fabulous for creating greetings cards quickly.

All I need to do was add the number One and the Anniversary  banner on top of the card. These come from the very useful Numbers of Years stamp set and matching Large Numbers die set.




My colour combination is Old Olive and Sweet Sugar Plum - don't there look great together.

Merry Little Labels Gift Box - Video Tutorial and My Stampin' Up Anniversary Mega Gift Away!


The colours of today's project are far from a coincidence - I signed up as a Stampin' Up demo 4 years ago today and my first ever demonstrator order consisted of just Night of Navy card stock, Silver Embossing Powder and Versamark!

I was crafting for my upcoming wedding - no prizes for guessing what the colours were, and signed up for the 20% discount on all the goodies I was buying. 

Who would have thought that fast forward 4 years, I would have a wonderful business and have made so many new friends.

Joining SU was one of the best things I have ever done.

I am so grateful for everybody that SU has bought into my life. 

I am also incredibly grateful for all my wonderful customers that support me each month and so I have an extra special offer for you all - I explain all at the start of my video HERE.

Anyway - on to today's project in that special colour scheme.





This cute box is a little bit clever and opens up to reveal a little gift set of tags made with the Merry Little Labels stamp set and the coordinating Everyday Label punch.



Now of course you don't have to just use to for tags - I think it would fit chocolate really well too.

A kind of different card - Thanks with the Cat Punch.


Sometimes it is nice to let your imagine run away and see where it ends up.

This card started off with the cat - I was playing with the Cat Punch and punching different colours and loved how it looked in Emerald Envy.



Dapper Denim always looks so nice with Emerald Envy and so to add a little more interest I grabbed some of the Colour Theory DSP - I love the way the crackle pattern just peaks out. 

I was making a card to thank a lovely lady that had just signed up to join my Stampin' Up team and so the sentiment from Lots of Thanks was very apt. 

If, like me, you are missing Gorgeous Grunge, you will appreciate how pleased I was to notice the ink splatter in Swirly Bird. It filled up the white space nicely.

A nice big bow finished the card off nicely. Still not sure if I love or hate the crinkly ribbon.

Beautiful Painted Harvest Card - Stampin' Up Inspiration



If you haven't visited for a while, you might not be aware of my obsession with Painted Harvest. 

It is such an amazing set, I am having to ration my use of it!

Today's card features very traditional sun flower colours - Daffodil Delight and Crushed Curry with an Early Espresso centre.


I have used a mixture of greens to stamp the leaves around the perimeter. 

The sentiment is Early Espresso stamped on to Crumb Cake card stock.

A little bit Jute Twine finished off the card perfectly.

Colourful Seasons Autumnal Card Inspiration with Clear Block Stamping.


The weather here has been really wet and windy here recently - it certainly feels like Autumn is on its way.

This card has a real autumnal feel to it too doesn't it.


The three colour blocks are created using the clear block stamping technique - so easy yet so effective.

Just stamp a clean block on your ink pad, give a little spritz of water and then stamp onto the card stock.

My colours are a few I don't use very often - Always Articoke, Crushed Curry and Cajun Crazy.

The very pretty leaf image and the sentiment comes from Colourful Seasons - one of my favourite sets in the annual catalogue.

Both are stamped in Early Espresso.
