Stamp, Stock & Save!!!

I was meant to be adding a card today but last night was one of those evenings when everything I wanted couldn't be found but today I am distracted by Stampin' Up's latest offer!!

For a very limited time (1st to 6th October) you can save 20% on a selection of 5 stamps and 15% on your essentials of card, envelopes and stamp pads - a brilliant help in stocking up.

Ink pads are only £4.21 and mixed packs of card £5.31 - an ideal time to stock up the stash with those essentials and maybe have a treat of a stamp set from the wish list.

I'm placing an order tomorrow night (1st October) so let me know if you want to join in!

Christmas Tree

And I have returned from the other side!

This is a cased card and isn't it a great idea?

It uses the Work of Art set to form the shape of a Christmas tree which I have stamped in Mossy Meadow.

The sentiment is from the Watercolour Winter Too set and the star is punched out with the new Itty Bitty star.

I've finished the tree by adding some of the sequins from the Frosted Sequins pack in the Seasonal Catalogue and topped these with a basic jewel.

Sorry today's picture isn't brilliant!

This card wasn't what I had in my head when I started out either but that's how it goes.

It's just a quick & easy card using the set Endless Wishes which with 19 stamps for £13.95 is brilliant value.

As the name suggests the messages all come in 2 parts so you can mix and match and you get 3 different snowflakes too.

I've also added some Lost Lagoon taffeta ribbon & a couple of gems to finish.

Colours used:
Lost Lagoon
Pool Party
Island Indigo
Silver metallic

A break from Christmas today but some products that are still featured in the current seasonal catalogue.

I dismissed this set at first but then thought it would be ideal for men cards and for anyone in fact when requiring something different to flowers/butterflies for a change.

I have used Naturals Ivory for this card for something different and ink colours used are:

Soft Suede
Pool Party
Lost Lagoon
Crumb Cake
Early Espresso

The stamp set is called Four Feathers and you've guessed it - comes with matching framelits!
As the name suggests this is just one of the feathers in the set so more samples to come.

The sentiment is from the Good Greetings set which is available until the end of October with a £200 individual or party spend - I love the font.

Re-inkers are featured on this weeks Weekly Deals so an ideal time to stock up to keep those ink pads going.

The base card is Basic Gray and has a layer of Smoky Slate stamped with the Hardwood stamp.

Everything else is using the Wondrous Wreath set and the framelits in the following colours:
Smoky Slate
Lost Lagoon
Blackberry Bliss
Silver Glimmer Paper
