Pink Carols of christmas

I am sharing a card today which has been made with  a non-traditional christmas colour combination, of Pink Pirouette, Crumb Cake, Whisper White and Silver.  I first came across this fabulous card whilst on Pinterest a  few weeks ago and CASED it from HERE. 
The Marbled stamp was used for the background and inked with pink pirouette

One of the trees were die cut in silver glimmer paper and the little cute reindeer in pink and both adhered to a layer of white card which has been embossed with the softly falling embossing folder

a couple of short lengths of silver ribbon and silver sequin trim was added to the side

  • Make multiples with ease
  • Consistently stamp crisp, clean images
  • If you want a darker impression, apply more ink and restamp – in Exactly the same spot (no need to start over).
  • Make Fewer mistakes, saving time and money
  • Easily create 2 step, 3 step, and 4 step stamping images using reversible plates
  • Develop new and specialized stamping techniques with adjustable stamping plates and precision placement

 Product Details:
  • Compatible with Stampin’ Up’s red rubber and photopolymer stamps
  • Foam mat to use with photopolymer stamps

  • The moving picture below shows the tool in action, creating a 4-step image using the adjustible and reversible plates!


Here is a quick video from Stampin’ Up! explaining how this amazing tool works:

So How Do You Get One??
With the launch of this tool, Stampin' Up! is trying something different: testing a new reservation system. It acts like a true preorder: you reserve your spot and they guarantee shipment as soon as the product arrives in their warehouse.

The global launch will feature three reservation windows. For each window, please note the following:
  • Reservation quantities are while supplies last.
  • Limit is 1 tool per customer per reservation window.
  • You may participate in multiple reservation windows.
  • In order to reserve your Stamparatus, you are required to provide your credit card information.
  • Credit cards will not be charged until the Stamparatus ships from our facility. When you close your order, be sure to verify that your credit card and shipping information is correct.

Now Available Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers

   If you love the look of alcohol markers but maybe find other makes too expensive, or perhaps you’re worn out searching for the co-ordinating Stampin’ Up! colours in your current alcohol pens, then help is here!

These pens are artist quality alcohol markers in 12 exclusive Stampin’ Up! colours! 

Here’s a catalogue sharing some more information for you? Just click on this pic to find out more…

Each of the 12 colours has a light and a dark shade of marker, available either individually or in a pack of two together. So 24 coloured pens in total. We also have a bronze pen, an ivory pen, and a colour lifter pen too!

Here are a couple of videos to show you them in action... 


Why You’ll Love Stampin’ Up! Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers:
  • Add just the right amount of color where you need it with the brush tip or fine-point.
  • Each color (except Ivory and Bronze) has a light and dark shade marker, available to purchase individually or as a combo pack (both shades).
  • Stampin’ Blends are not refillable.  However, you can purchase colors individually when you need to replace them.
  • Stampin’ Up! has done in-house testing for evaporation and life testing and is really happy with the results.
  • Press fit seal prevents air from entering the barrel and causing evaporation.
  • The nestable lids are easy to keep track of and have a tight fit for long-lasting color.

Year of cheer set of cards and acetate box class

I held my first Christmas workshop last Saturday where we all made 5 beautiful Christmas cards and a decorated acetate box to store them in using the lush Year of Cheer designer series paper and Snowflake Sentiments bundle

Tables all set up ready to start crafting,

All the papers and materials to be used along with instruction leaflet

If you look closely at the Acetate Card Box above, you'll notice that the outside has been embossed with the Winter Wonder Embossing Folder. Keep the card box flat and slide the embossing folder over the front and inside and run it through the Big Shot Machine to emboss. The box was decorated with a strip of one of the gold checked papers and gold snowflake. 

The centre of the snowflake was punched using the 1 3/4" circle punch, creating another flower design and placed on top of the white stitched shape circle


The class kit included a selection of gold and silver foil snowflakes, pack of year of cheer washi tape, ribbons and embellishments and to keep them safe I decorated a mini pizza box for each person to store them in and to take home

The mini pizza boxes are an excellent way of packaging a variety of items such as tealights, chocolates, mini cards and envelopes and at only £5.50 for 8, they are a great buy!
