Loving thoughts meets Blooming with Kindness

Hi guys, hope today finds everyone well and happy.

Todays card uses two of my favourite stamp sets.  One of which is the first Stampin Up! set I ever bought.  Blooming with Kindness.

I have used the lovely flower from this and stamped it in Sahara Sand, layered this onto Smoky Slate card stock, before mounting on Real Red.  All these layers were then mounted on my Whisper White card base, which had been stamped with the sentiment from Loving Thoughts.  This is a fabulous set. I love these three panels and the colours blend beautifully.  Could be one of my new favourite colour combos.

I have of course used Baked Brown Sugar DSP to make the envelope.

But as this was a present I also made a cute little duffle bag to go with it from the Fresh Prints DSP which is in our Spring Summer brochure.

The basis of this box is designed and based on one my friend Sam designed.  You can see her video here.  I have adapted mine and punched holes around the top to create a duffle bag and tied with Real Red Stitch Ribbon. 

I used the I can't thank you enough stamp from Chalk Talk set to create the tags.

The lucky lady, Lorna who received this really loved it and I do too.
Have you got a special something and someone that you would like to make a personal card and gift box for?  Yes, then give me a call, 07823 883769 or go to my shop and order the supplies to make these or similar yourself

Dreams ...........

Hi everyone.  How are you?

Well, the internet if finally on, i'm not having to go and sit and have coffee in Costa just so I can use the internet.  So this is the first post I have written since the 17th sat in my new home.

Have you got a dream or something that you would really love to be able to do?  

Is there something that you think would make you life a bit fuller?

Would you like to do something that made you feel alive again?

And how about getting all these things alongside an amazing team?

I am really lucky and I can say that for me there is something that has done this.

I discovered Stampin' Up!  

I cannot tell you how much happiness and enjoyment this has bought into my life.  Being able to craft with so many great products has really given me my sparkle back.


 I would like to say to all members of the Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Support Team, everywhere, but especially in Europe how much I love you guys.  I cannot thank you enough for what you do, especially Chris and Andre.  I'd be lost without you guys.

I'd like to let Stampin' Up and Shelli know that you have made my dreams come true.  I thought that after my accident 10 years ago I was a washed up has been, but you guys gave me an opportunity and let me creativity and dreams come to life.  I cannot thank you enough.  I know you have received lots of love during Demo Support week 21 - 25 but due to the internet I couldn't participate so I thought I'd let you know now.

So here's my card for you.  


This card has been made using the lovely 2014/2015 In Colours.  I layered whisper white card stock over a strawberry slush base.  The using the gorgeous Swallowtail Butterfly I coloured it in with the Stamp'n'Write Markers and then stamped.  So simple but so effective.

Finally I added the sentiment.  This is from a set that could be retiring soon.
