Peekaboo Peach, Sweet Sugarplum and Flirty Flamingo Butterflies plus Stampin' Up! New Catalogue News!

Hello there,
I have so much to share with you today! So, I'll start with the upcoming SU! FREE PRODUCT news but don't worry, there's a card here today too ;-)
First up, I have excellent news if you are thinking of joining SU! and my team. SU! are still offering their fantastic value kit for just £99, as usual you still choose £130 worth of product but from the 1st to 30th June you can choose an additional two free stamp sets too!! Giving you the chance to choose up to £92 worth of free stamps, still for just £99!! Whoop! If you want to chat about joining SU! then please drop me a message HERE. Or go HERE to join with me :-)
OK, so maybe joining isn't for you today? You can still get FREE product in June... How do you fancy having a crafty get together with friends, either at yours or mine*? Or you can simply collect orders from crafty friends. Either way you can earn an extra £25 in product once your party total reaches £250!
*I'm between Southampton and the New Forest and happy to drive up to an hour to share SU! with you in person.
And finally for the news today I want to invite you to my launch party on the 2nd June (7-9pm).
Just £5 gives you an evening of fun and stamping, demonstrations, hands on crafting, samples to see, cake and of course your own copy of the new catalogue! But, that's not all, you will receive a £5 credit for my "Pop of Paradise Party Class" to be held on the 18th and 20th June when booked and paid for on the night!
OK, so how about a little new product on a card? I wanted to share with you how wonderfully Peekaboo Peach, Flirty Flamingo and Sweet Sugarplum go together...
 I used Flirty Flamingo to do a wash on the background watercolour paper. Do you recognise that cute Happy Birthday? No? That's because it's another new stamp set (which I actually won in a Prize Patrol in Telford, another fab reason to join SU! btw) called Birthday Banners :-)
 The butterfly was made in the same way as in THIS VIDEO, just colour each embossed butterfly in a different colour, then brush over with a Wink Of Stella once dry.
 I matted the panel onto Peekaboo Peach card before popping it onto a thick white card base
 Finally, finish with lovely sequins.
Phew, that turned into a mammoth post today!
I hope you have enjoyed todays card and news post and if you have any questions then please do email me at

#washiwednesday -A Banner Card using Everyday Chic Washi by Stampin' Up!

Have you used your washi this week? I have been a bit busy here so today I have the card I mentioned to you last week but I'm planning on getting a lot of crafting in this upcoming weekend as it's a bank holiday here in the UK :-))))
So, here is today's #washiwednesday's quick little card for y'all! 
I made a simple banner design by wrapping washi around some thick smoky slate twine...
 I used Everyday Chic washi - which will be retiring on 31st May! - and some of that gorgeous glitter tape from SaB 2016, if you didn't get any then you could use glimmer paper instead :-)
This sentiment was heat embossed in silver and then coloured using blender pens and my Smoky Slate ink pad, it's from the upcoming set Confetti Celebration - love it!
 As with most washi projects this is a quick and fun card that can easily be made in multiples.
 Don't you love washi for crafting on the go?
And it's great for crafting with kids and beginner crafters too!
Well, that's me for today, I'm off now to write another wish list for the new catalogue *ahem* I mean do some work... ;-)
'till the next time,
Stampin' Hugs,

Baby Boy Shaker Card using Stampin' Up's Baby's First Framelits and the new Foam Strips!

Hello there,
Today I have the baby boy shaker card that actually inspired Saturday's video! You can see that HERE if you missed it :-)
It all started when the lovely couple over the road had a baby boy and I decided I just *had to* make a shaker card using the fab-u-lous new foam strips that are coming soon to make it, take a look...
 This gorgeous chevron ribbon is retired but I still have just a little bit left ;-)
 These wooden words (called 'Expressions Natural Elements') are retiring at the end of the month too :-(
 Bootie shakers - Lol!!
 and baby vest shaker
 And I managed to fit it into a standard envelope too !
 Top view. I was really, really happy with how this card turned out!
 Here it is with the wrapped gift we gave to them.
You might recognise it from #washiwednesday last week ;-)
Well, I hope you liked todays card and remember to check out my Top Tips video for making any shaker card using these Foam Strips - and you will be able to order them in a little over a week from now, eep! :-)
 Please, please order your favourites from the Retiring List as this is the last week ever that you can get your supplies that are on there! And if you use the code below, you'll get a pressie from me in June too! Bonus!
