Offers this week

A great offer from Stampin' Up this week if you have fancied joining or have a big wish list (it is nearly Christmas!!!).

There is a discount on the joining fee of the usual £99 and it is reduced to just £74.25 and for this you can choose £130 worth of product from the catalogue.  This can be whatever you choose to this value - what a fab offer.

Remember, you don't have to demonstrate you can just purchase goodies for your own use and if you don't spend the minimum by the end of your first full quarter there is nothing to repay, it's all yours to keep.

A further added bonus is that if you purchase more in December (when you can pre-order from the spring catalogue and get your hands on sale-a-bration goodies) as well as the extra discount you get on your first order anyway you will receive a 5% cash back on top of all this as well.

This offer only applies until 2nd December - give me a shout if you have any questions.

New Weekly Deals are available as well today - this week included are the square punch for £10.69 (normally £14.25), the oval accent bigz die for £14.21 (normally £18.95) and the designer rosette bigz xl die is only £26.12 instead of £34.95.

All party goodies from last week were despatched tonight to eager customers - what great service SU provide as everything comes from Germany.  I've been busy making swaps for an event next week so should have plenty more to post.

Party make and take

A very successful party last week with 12 lovely ladies, most of whom had a go at this make and take.

I wanted to do something a bit different so chose an easel card and wanted to demo the fab stamp set Wondrous Wreath.  This also comes with matching framelits but I didn't want to scare everyone so we just stamped the image on circles that I had pre-cut for everyone.
(I also took some samples cut using framelits of course as they do look good!).

The base card is pear pizzazz and each card had a different piece of paper to stick on the front from the Trim the Tree DSP pack featuring the colour Garden Green.

Full recipe of goodies:
Card: Whisper White, Pear Pizzazz, Real Red, Garden Green, Red Glimmer Paper
Ink: Pear Pizzazz, Garden Green, Real Red
Punches: Extra-Large Oval, Artisan Label, Ticket Duo Builder
Stamp sets: Wondrous Wreath, That's the Ticket
Filigree Frame embossing folder
Wondrous Wreath Framelits (for the bow)
Circle Framelits
Trim the Tree Designer Series Paper Stack

That's quite a list when you write it out!  All the ladies really liked the card though and a couple of non-stampers were very impressed with their efforts.

This is a side view of the card.
Don't forget you can earn free goodies if your party sales reach £150 or more!!

Merry Christmas!

And another quick card!

For anyone that went to one of Jenny's Extravaganza days recently you may of noticed this design on the bag we were given.

The 'Merry' is from the set Seasonally Scattered and I've stamped it in Lost Lagoon on matching card.
It is cut out with an Apothecary Accent framelit.

'Christmas' is from Watercolor Winter Too and punched out with the modern label punch which must be one of my most used.

The backing paper is from the All is Calm set in the seasonal catalogue.

You can't beat a clean and simple card - this card was made for a recent demo to show that simple but effective can be a great way to go.

The base card is Smoky Slate and I've used 3 stamps from the set Endless Wishes and stamped them in the colours of Elegant Eggplant, Perfect Plum & Smoky Slate on Whisper White card.

The sentiment is a little sneaky as it was only available to the end of October.
Finished with some gems.

This would look great in lots of different colour combos - maybe I'll try some at the weekend!

Christmas Wreath

Back from under a pile of card, paper, ink etc and here is another Christmas card.

This set is a two-step stamping set (well, kind of three step!).

It's a set called Wondrous Wreath which has 9 stamps in and comes in an optional bundle with matching framelits!!

The base stamp has all the leaves on it and I stamped it in Pool Party ink.  The second step has selected leaves on for over-stamping in a darker colour, I used Bermuda Bay.  Because the stamps are photopolymer you can see exactly where you are positioning the stamp for a great result.

There is then a stamp for the berries which I've added in Real Red.

I have cut this out with the framelits and added it with dimensionals to my card - I'll share one I haven't cut out another day.

Remember Weekly Deals are still running so keep an eye on anything on your wish list at a discount!
