White Christmas by Stampin' Up! and Making Cards Magazine News

Good Morning!
It's another busy day here again today with sleepovers and Halloween preparations planned for later on but I wanted to pop on and share with you this card I made. 
I used the very lovely White Christmas stamp set to make this scene on a Crumb Cake card layer with Pool Party. I used the White Gel Pen with some blender pen colouring too. I was inspired by a card Jules made, I loved the white gel pen on crumb cake so many thanks Jules! This White Christmas set is a photo-polymer set so it's nice and easy to add elements to build your scene like this....
 Love this tree, which is a separate stamp from the car, so you can choose to have it on there or leave it off but it's flat on one side ready to add! The "snow" on the ground was added with a sponge from the Craft White Ink Pad 
 a bit of colouring with a Pool Party ink pad and Blender Pens and snowfall from the White Gel Pen on the Christmas banner
 I really love this thick twine (it's taken over for me from Bakers Twine!), this is Pool Party twine which is available now in the Clearance rack but only while stocks last
 and a side view to finish today, another card that would be good for posting as it's flat, you might have to leave the twine off though?? (Noooo! lol)
Just before I know I promised to share with you when I was in magazines but last month just went by so quickly!! So I was wondering if you've seen this months Making Cards magazine? I'm on the front cover this month (Whoop!!) with a wreath card - lower left hand side, removable keepsakes - with full instructions for all cards included, check it out if you get a chance!
OK, that's all from me for today, I'll be back tomorrow with another Christmas card for you.
Thanks for looking today,

Gorgeous Grunge and Ornamental Pine by Stampin' up! with Bleanabilities and New Stamp Club Starting in November

Hello there,
I have a card today that I simply adore!! I know, I probably shouldn't say that but in my defence I can say it was totally cased from a card I found on Pinterest with an explanation on how to achieve it from THIS lady, thanks Billie :-)
I loved the idea of heat embossing and colouring with Blendabilities (Blendies) anyway but when I saw it done with the Ornamental Pine stamp set I just knew had to have a go for myself!! So I made this version which is a Smoky Slate base and top layer with white heat embossed Ornamental Pine and Gorgeous Grunge for the snow...
 I used Old Olive and Skin Tone Blendies to colour the needles and twig
 I stapled some sheer linen ribbon onto the card and tied it into a bow. Love this ribbon as it makes a very decadent looking bow ;-)
 and I finished by heat embossing the sentiment from the set in silver onto vellum
and if you would like to have a go at this card then all the supplies needed are listed below ;-)
Want to spread your purchasing power a bit and still get hostess benefits?? Why not join my NEW stamp club I'm starting in November? More details HERE but basically spend just £25 a month for 6 months and be the hostess for one of those month meaning you get to choose at least £25 worth of freebies!!
Message me to chat or join!
Thanks for looking today, I'll be back tomorrow with more :-)

Stampin' Up! Convention in Brussels Part 3

Hello there!
And welcome to my last instalment of Brussels 2014 at Stampin' Up! Convention. Today's post has many more pictures of Brussels than actual convention as the Saturday's events finished in the afternoon. We then had the Saturday night and 'till 1pm on the Sunday to fill. I'm so glad we did too as there was so much to see but I don't think we really did a quarter of what there was to do!
Anyway, when we got up Saturday morning this was the outlook, to the right, out of our hotel window. You can see the sun coming up over Brussels and it just caught this golden statue in its path perfectly. (I shared this on Instagram at the time, feel free to follow me there if you want)
 After breakfast we headed back over to the convention centre and had lots more talks and demos including from Paula Gorry our UK Business development manager and also a PLxSU demo by Katie, Carrie and Shannon from the home office...
 And of course the convention ended with a talk and demo from Shelli herself. We were sat right up the front for this last section so it felt like we were crafting right with her ;-)
 She was showing us projects using "Oh my Goodies" from the Annual catalogue. I must admit to seeing this set in a whole new light after Shelli's presentation...
 Shelli also shared some ideas using Wondrous Wreath from the Autumn/Winter catalogue. 
I loved this slate and silver heat embossed version. Shelli then gave away this set as her Prize Patrol. I did not win unfortunately :-( lol
 Anyway after convention ended we had a couple of hours before we met up to go out that evening but on the way back to the hotel Jules and I found a "Waffle Van" Just like an ice cream van - but much better, someone seriously needs to do this in the UK!!
We went out for dinner that evening and here is one of the very few pictures I took. This one was taken in the Grand Place and it was packed with fire engines and other emergency vehicles ;-)
Sunday came and we met up with a friend of Julies, Anne. Anne lives in Brussels and she kindly showed us around all the sights in the daylight ;-) 
Thanks so much Anne for taking the time to share this wonderful city with us x



 And before we went Jules treated us to a drink in a cafe right near the hotel, this was the view from my seat! It was so warm there that weekend.
Well, as you can probably guess I loved Brussels. I'd love to take my Hubby with me in the future so I think I best start saving!
Thanks again for visiting with me here and sharing this look back at my time in Brussels. I hope you have enjoyed it as much as I have...
So, tomorrow I'll be back to normal with crafty projects again. I have so many to share with you right now it's hard to decide where to start!! 
Stampin' Hugs for today,
