Welcome Christmas window

OOOOOOOHHHHHH! I am so over working extra days!!!
I have not had the time I would like to be in my craft room at the moment as I have been doing extra days at work because we have had a few staff members leave. However this weekend I ignored the housework that needed to be done and played instead. I ordered some the christmas special from Stampin' Up! and just had to create something. This is a Christmas card Book that has pages in it to keep all the addresses I need to send Chrissy Cards to. I love the silouette effect of the stamps in the Welcome Christmas set and love the idea of doing a scene looking through a window. I hope you like it to. To make this book you can book a workshop with me.

Good Morning

Today I am going to share with you a card or rather a technique I am going to demo on the weekend. As I am just a new Stampin' Up! demonstrator, signed up under my sister, she has asked if I would like to Demo at a workshop with her to get a feel for it so this is what I am going to do. There will be quite a few beginner card makers at the workshop that haven't been stamping for long, so I am going to show how you can get the most out of your stamps by masking. Two ways of masking that I will be teaching is the layering technique where you stamp your image to be used onto scrap paper, in this case the large flower out of the Scribble This set, cut it out and then use it to mask the flowers you have already stamped so you can layer them up over each other. The second is masking of part of the stamp so you can add more than one colour. I have used the sentiment stamp from For Everything set and masked the small writing with a sticky note while I inked up the stamp in Pear Pizzazz ink and then removed the mask and coloured the small writing with  Peach Parfait Marker. Basic technique, I know, but with great results!

Envelope File

Hi Everyone, today I am going to share with you an envelope file that you can make using 3xDL envelopes. You simply seal the envelopes, cut them in half and attach them to a piece of concertina card stock. Then you need to glue each envelope together so that they will open when you pull on the two outside pockets. Make a cover to place them in and wah-lah, one cute little file.

Stamps: Cottage Garden
Inks: So Saffron and Marina Mist
Paper: So Saffron, Whisper White
Accessories: Scollop border punch, Polka Dots embossing folder, Corner punch.

Wedding Card

As promised, this is the very first card I made when I got my starter kit from Stampin' Up! I love the subtle soft tones of this card and think it will become a favorite workshop of mine.
I love the images in the Fast and Fun Notes stamp set as they allow me to use my favorite technique..water colour. This image I softly water coloured using the aqua painter and Classic stamp pads and then sponged around the edges to soften them off. The flower I punched out of butchers paper using the Fancy Flowers punch and inked them and smooched them up. A great result don't you think?

My new adventure!

Hi friends, I know it has been a while since I have been on to update my blog. For this I am sorry, however it has been for good reason. I recently decided to join the Stampin' Up! family and become a demonstrator under my wonderful sisters guidance. Therefor I have been very busy setting up my business and getting samples made.
 It also means I have had to tweak my blog a little to keep within the SU! guidelines. So now I am back and everything will be full steam ahead from here, so stay tuned for some creativity coming your way.

Happy crafting, Danielle xoxox
