Card for my Mum

Hi everyone!
It was my lovely Mum's birthday at the end of October, so I want to share the card I made for her...

I've used Flowering Flourishes for the lovely swirls on the card and added punched flowers from the Pictogram Punches stamp set. 

The centre panel is created using one of the gorgeous embossing folders from the Fun Frames set. The lettering is from Little Letters Thinlits and I gently inked the edges with Pink Pirouette ink.
I was on a roll making this card so I even decided to decorate the inside! The sentiment is from one of our lovely hostess sets, Happy Birthday Everyone. Do you like that it is stamped in 2 different colours? Well this is very easily achieved by using our brilliant Stampin' Write Markers. I simply inked 'Birthday' with the Pink Pirouette first, then the 'Happy' with Marina Mist, then as the ink had dried a little, I 'huffed' over the stamp to dampen the ink again. I love using this technique as it's so simple, yet so effective!

This weekend is the very exciting first On Stage Live in Brussels, especially for Stampin' Up! Demonstrators. Sadly, I won't be there this year, but I'm sure there are going to be some very exciting announcements of new soon as I hear of anything, I will let you know!

Stampin' Up Reason For The Season Tutorial - making it easy!!

Good evening!
I hope this post finds you all well?
I have been busy crafting for my upcoming stall at the Worsley URFC Christmas fair recently, and I wanted to show you one of my new makes tonight. 

PLUS, how to line up the Reason For The Season stamps and punch bundle for quick and easy Poinsettias!

First of all, here is the finished project....Oh yes, this involves some clever upcycling too...

This gorgeous tealight/candle holder is made from an empty tuna tin and 22 wooden clothes pegs! I simply glued strips of Gold Glimmer Paper to each peg and clipped them to the can, then wrapped it all with some Natural Cotton Ribbon and Linen Thread. I then added the Gold Cording Trim and the stunning Poinsettia, complete with an Iced Rhinestone, coloured with a gold Sharpie.

Here's how it looks when lit...

Isn't it beautifully sparkly?! 

So, I promised to show how to line up the stamps and die to make this all so much easier right? Ok, just check out my little video below...

I think you'll agree that it really is a doddle right? I sometimes think that Stampin' Up! design products deliberately for us Demos to work out easier ways of using them! ;)

So would you like to have a go at making one of these? Well here is a list to all the Stampin' Up! products I used. Please just click on them to order direct from my online shop, or click on the link to the right >>>>>
