Stampin Up! Blooms and Wishes Papillon Potpourri Ticket Tear Butterfly Box

Hi everyone,

Today's project is a quick and easy box to make with the beautiful Blooms and Wishes stamp set which will be carrying over to our new catalogue out on the 1st June 2017. I love this stamp set as it is not only beautiful but it's also versatile and can be used for many occasions. Featuring also is a sneak peak of the new Ticket Tear punch - I love it already.

I am sad that the beautiful Papillon Potpourri stamp set is retiring along with the Elegant Butterfly punch. Grab these two before they go!

Below I have a YouTube tutorial showing you how to make one of your own.

Stampin Up! Watercolour Words Balloon Bouquet Salted Shaving Cream Technique Card.


Hello everyone!

I have been having so much fun with my Salted Shaving Cream Technique that I decided to create a couple of birthday cards using this fun technique. I did however alter it and instead of using the fine table salt I decided to try it out with course flaky salt. The effect is different yet again and I am thrilled with the results! Below I have a video tutorial showing you how I made these cards

Salted Shaving Cream Technique

Hi everyone,

After filming yesterday's tutorial I had a tonne of shaving cream left over so I decided to do a bit of experimenting to see if I could get a different look to the shaving cream technique. Going from the salted watercoloring technique I decided to add salt to the shaving cream!  I had the video camera out from the previous video tutorial so I decided to experiment whilst filming and I was thrilled with how it turned out and I am so glad that I was able to capture it!

Here is the video tutorial of the experiment.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. Keep an eye out for a project with this technique. Thanks for coming past and I hope to see you soon!

Stampin Up! Fabulous Flamingo Shaving Cream Embossed Acetate Card

Hi everyone,

Today's card is super fun and utilises 2 techniques that have been around for a while. It was lots of fun rediscovering them and I feel fits the cards theme of flamingo very well. One of the techniques is the shaving cream technique. The beauty of this technique is that it turns out different and unique every single time. The second technique is heat embossing on acetate. The secret for it to turn out well is use a transparency sheet that can withstand heat, usually these are the copier or laser printer compatible transparency sheets, these are made to withstand quite a bit of heat

I have made a video tutorial to show you exactly how I made this card and I hope you find it helpful.

Hi everyone!

Today I am sharing a very quick card using Stampin Up!'s new Tranquil Tulips stamp set along with the new Ticket Tear border punch. These will be available to order from the 1st June 2017. The Tranquil Tulips stamp set is hostess set so that means you have to place an order of $250 or more and you can use some of your hostess dollars to grab this gorgeous set.I made the card without a sentiment as I am leaving myself some options.

I have made a video tutorial to show you how to make this card so please click on it below to watch it.

Stampin Up! Falling Flowers Mother's Day Card

Hi everyone!

Today's card is one I've had in my head for a while and I finally created it. This is the card that I am giving to my mum. I can safely post this here as she never uses a computer.  I am using the current Falling Flowers stamp set and matching May Flower Framelit dies. I am so happy that these two will be also featured in our new catalogue which will be out on 1st June 2017. I have also used the gorgeous Seaside embossing folder and the Crazy About You stamp set along with the Hello You thinlit dies. I am bummed that Crazy About You stamp set and Hello You thinlit dies are retiring. So grab yourself these two before they are gone for good. ** At the time of posting this they may already be sold out** I have featured a brand new embellishment which will be available for purchase on 1st June and it's the Gold Faceted Gems. These are the centres of the flowers. You have to see them in real life as they are STUNNING!!!!

I have a video tutorial showing you how to make this card. It's a long one so I apologise in advance. When I film my videos, I would like beginner and experienced stampers alike to enjoy and learn from me, so I show everything from start to finish. At times I prepare a little in advance like cutting card stock etc, but on the whole I show it all. I want as many as possible to learn and love this beautiful craft as much as I do. It keeps me sane. Below is the video tutorial, grab a cuppa and enjoy. *Feel free to skip parts if you wish to.*

Thank you for coming past and for watching my tutorial I appreciate it. See you again soon.
