Make it Show

I thought I would share some pictures of the Stampin' Up! Stand from the show this weekend. It was lovely to see so many familiar faces - I'm just sorry that I didn't get a chance to chat with you all. If I met you for the first time - hello! I hope you enjoy looking at the cards on my blog! Thankfully my back stood up to the test!

Make It Show Farnborough

Yipee - it's finally here! A number of SU demo's have been working hard to get ready for this show - creating a fabulous make and take for all who pop by to see us, devising a number of special offers to tempt you all and creating some beautiful cards and other projects to showcase all that Stampin' Up! can do!

My own preparation has been hampered these past few days by a bad back - but hopefully I will be fully functioning on the stand today! I look forward to seeing many of you at the show today - but for those of you who can't make it there - I am offering 10% off any order given to me over the period of the show.

If you want to take advantage of this offer - just email me with your order this weekend. And don't forget to take advantage of the sale-a-bration offer too!

Marry Me?

No this isn't a proposal - but the name of a new stamp set in the Mini Catalogue! I really like this particular set because the images and words are so simple. I think it is also quite versatile - and it could be used for anniversary cards and special occasions. As I work in a school - I immediately think of the school prom! I would just ink up the image (minus the veil) for those sorts of occasions!
For this card I used the incolour Pool Party card stock and stamped my images in versamark. I then heat embossed the majority with white embossing powder. I created the butterflies with the Beautiful Butterflies Die and used both card and embossed vellum card stock to create the 3 d butterflies.

Cup Cake Heaven

Those of you who know me, know that I love to bake - so it should be no surprise that one of my favourite new stamp sets from the Spring Mini Catalogue is the fabulous Create a Cupcake and matching builder punch. They are such fun to use together! There is no end of different combinations for the toppings - from candles, to sprinkles and flowers - but I think my favourite topping has to be the cherry - especially when it is punched out in the fantastic new glimmer paper. (the picture in the Spring Mini really doesn't do it justice!). Best of all - these cupcakes have no calories!
