Another Reason to Smile card

Hello Everybody!
I'm really loving using the Reason to Smile set that we've got on offer at the minute. Anyone can have one - you can get it free if you spend £60 or more on other product, or you can buy it as a wood mount set for £18.95, or a clear mount set for £14.95. Here's my latest offering:

As the set is a Two Step Stamping set, you get lovely "shadow" images along with the line drawn images. I used this shadow stamp to create a faux watercoloured type image on this card.  The card base and seam binding are both Pool Party and the papers are the lovely Mocha Morning Speciality DSP. The swirl is from the Sizzix Swirls and Scribbles die and the sentiment is from the Clearly for You stamp set.

As ever, I had to finish off with some rhinestones and twine - they're two of my favourite products, along with the pearls.  Love a bit of bling!

Don't forget, you can buy this set, but it will only be available until 31st August. So if you'd like one get your orders in before the end of the month!

Girly Friday

As some of you will know, as well as being a mild mannered SU! demo, I'm also a qualified nail technician.  I've been using Gelish, a wonderful UV gel polish for a few months now and love it. Here I want to log some of my colour combinations which can be done by layering the polish.

Today we have a combination of 2 layers of Good Gossip, one layer of Ambience and two layers of Vegas Nights. A lovely colour combo and very bright and summery.

This has got me thinking though - the Vegas Nights is reminding me of Dazzling Diamonds. May have to do some glittery makes very soon! It's never too early for Christmas cards, and I will be demonstrating a lovely technique at our crop next weekend and everyone will get to make some, so watch this space!

New Promotion!

Hello Everyone!

We could all do with a reason to smile now and then, and for this month only Stampin' Up! are offering an exclusive stamp set absolutely free if you spend £60 on product.

As you can see, this is a 2-Step Stampin' set that is so versatile - I've fallen in love with it.  As you can see below, I've already made one card with it, and I'll be making many more over the course of August.

This card is made using the Reason to Smile set with the gebera flower head stamped onto the Rich Razzleberry card base.  The whole line drawn flower was then stamped onto the First Edition Speciality Paper and coloured in with Aqua Painters and ink pad. The sentiment is from Petite Pairs. I then finished it off with a Lucky Limeade mat, some striped grosgrain, a few rhinestones and a squoosh of Basic Grey ink from my Colour Spritzer Tool for that distressed look.

If you'd like to take advantage of this offer please just get in touch.
