Kinda Eclectic with Birthday Surprise by Stampin' Up! to make a card for a man :-)

Hello there,
I have another card today using Kinda Eclectic, it's so fab for quick and easy cards, I literally made this in about 15 minutes, not bad huh? And it works so well with my other new stamp set from the new CATALOGUE; Birthday Surprise, as the images in this set are also kind of rustic looking too IYKWIM? I'll show you a close up in a mo... Anyway, let me show you the whole card first, shall I?
See the leaves from Kinda Eclectic are patchy (rustic) and I managed to squeeze a few sequins in there too with the linen thread, not too girly eh? ;-) 
(All products used are listed at the end as usual, x)
and a close up of the Birthday Surprise sentiment, I can see this being used a lot for card for guys as it's no nonsense and would make a fab focal image too....
and a final picture of the card, I was happy with this one :-)
OK, that's all from me today, I've had classes the last couple of days but I should be back to blogging most days now again,
Thanks for looking today and I hope you liked the card

Stampin' Up! Kinda Eclectic super quick card with Top Tips!

Hello, 
I'm here with a really quick and easy card using the new Kinda Eclectic stamp from the brand new SU! Catalogue, if you don't have a copy yet please message me and we can get one to you or take a look online :-)
Right, so here is the card in a Strawberry Slush, Lost Lagoon and Sahara Sand colour way (for a different version please pop over to my Facebook page and see the card I shared there yesterday)
I love this stamp set but I do have a TOP TIP for you for the circles stamp included- or any clear mount stamp with a top and bottom really! 
 now, I don't use the stickers supplied as I find the stamps stick better to the blocks without them, so to make sure I have the stamp the correct way up I mark the back using a sharpie, I put a spot at the top and a line at the bottom like this...
See I also used my yummy new sequins to decorate the front and add a little something extra without bulk..

 And TOP TIP 2: is to use Crystal Effects to adhere sequins, it dries clear and as you only use a tiny amount for this application it dries quickly too :-)))
OK, that's all for today, I'll be back tomorrow with another class card,
Thanks for looking and for your sweet comments on my video too :-)

Video Tutorial sharing a Shabby Chic flower using the Stampin' Up! Spiral Flower die.

Hello there,
As requested I'm here today with my video for the shabby chic spiral flower we made at class a couple of weeks ago, this was the card...
The two flowers we made at class were Raspberry Ripple and vanilla, unfortunately the Raspberry is retired now so I re-made them in Cherry Cobbler with Vanilla in the video. 
First a double layer flower...
and a single layer rose bud style
and here is the video, I hope you enjoy it and that you make lots of flowers too ;-)
Please, remember to share your makes with me, I love to see :-))))
and my finished flowers in Cherry Cobbler and Vanilla

 Thanks for looking today, please do leave me a comment so I know of you liked today's tutorial, I was thinking I might do more videos if you like them?
Stampin' Hugs,

Just Sayin' card for a man and new Weekly Deals

Hello there,
Today's card is a quick and easy card for the guy(s) in your life ;-)
We used Just Sayin' and it's matching framelits and teamed them with Gorgeous Grunge- which is still a firm favourite of mine! I love how it just makes a quick, easy detail in the background. I also used my new embossing folder (after stamping , of course) for the background called Arrows as well as the Decorative dots folder -on the little word bubble- which is now available to purchase in the NEW CATTY too...
 I stamped this sentiment using the new Momento ink pad, it's not just for Blendies you know ;-) (Blendabilities new abbreviation, definitely not SU!'s idea that one!!! lol)  
 and some more twine! I may *heart* this stuff, like a lot...
 and I made a slightly different version with a "hey there" sentiment (also Just Sayin' stamp set) so here they are together
OK, I'm off to stamp!
**Edit to add weekly Deals**
Cause I forgot when I was chatting about this card to tell you my faves this week! Doh me!
There's a couple of punches on offer this week (always brill!) and I adore the Gold Bakers Twine too,
please GO HERE to see all the offers :-)
Thanks for visiting today,
Stampin' Hugs,
