CAS Kraft and Black Butterfly Card using Stampin' Up's Butterfly Thinlits

And welcome to the last ever day of this catalogue and remember that 11pm BST tonight is the very last chance for you to order retiring goodies from my SHOP. However, that of course means tomorrow is NEW catalogue day! So do save some of your spends for that as it is truly Fab-u-lous! 
So, I have a super cute and very CAS card today to share with you...
I used butterflies from both packs of framelits packs to make this filigree effect.
Adding tombow in the center only gives the butterflies lift.
 The cute sentiment is from the Party with Cake stamp set.
Finished by using my clear Wink of stella pen to give the black butterfly some sparkle :-)
I designed this card to be made at the very lovely Jenny's Hen Party. You can see here the ladies also made a Perpetual Birthday Calendar each too, it was such a fun day!
If you have a group of (6 or more) friends you would like to get together and craft with then please get in touch about having a party - either here or at yours! I'd love to help :-)
Places are filling fast but I do have just a couple more kits left for Thursdays Catalogue Launch Party. More details can be found  HERE.
Again, message me to join the fun! I'd love to see you here :-)
Well, thanks for looking today and I'll be back tomorrow with THE NEW SU! CATALOGUE!!! Excited much? I'm sure you are going to love it as much as I do...
'till tomorrow, Stampin' Hugs,

New Driver Cards using Let's Get Away and Beautiful Ride by Stampin' Up!

Good Morning!
It's a lovely sunny, if a little blustery, day here today and I have a full day ahead but first I wanted to share with you a couple of cards I made this week for two lovely ladies who both passed their driving test on Tuesday! I have married the old with the new and used two stamp sets that are retiring {you only have until Tuesday 31.05.16 to order them} teamed with the new in Colours Flirty Flamingo and Sweet Sugarplum, I'm loving these new colours so much!
So, lets see the cards shall we?
 I'll start with the Flirty Flamingo a little closer
 I started by drawing  a very faint pencil line across the card and stamping the coloured car from the Project Life stamp set "Let's Get Away". I actually bought this stamp set to make up my PL albums from our holiday to the USA this year, *I will get that done soon!*
 Then added the smoky slate ones either side, it's very easy to do as this is a photopolymer stamp set.
 Here it is in Sweet Sugarplum..
 I then used just part of a sentiment from Beautiful Ride. Yes, I did cut another stamp apart ;-)
 I added a few teeny tiny star sequins I had in my stash around the coloured car on each card
 We gifted the girls with an updated version of the traditional fluffy dice, this purse from Accessorize to keep a little change in, in their cars...
And one final picture of the cards together,
OK, that's all from me for today, I'm off to make something fun!

Watercolour Words meets Number of Years by SU! for a CAS Anniversary Card.

And a happy Saturday to you! As is usual, it's looking to be a busy one here at Rae HQ but we are hoping to get at least one day of quiet over the bank holiday weekend. Speaking of Bank Holidays I want to give you a little offer of my own, just for you. If you place any order over £25 (before post) with me via my SHOP before midnight Monday 30th May then I will send you a little pack of retiring goodies (maybe a selection of DSP, ribbons, buttons and the like....) that's on top of the goodies you'll get for using the online shopper code for May: SVXHBAGF. More details on online ordering can be found HERE. PLUS please remember that all the "retiring products" will go forever on Tuesday! This really is your very last chance to get the things from the retirement list you need :-)
OK, so let's see todays card! It is a card I made at the beginning of the month for a lovely couple who's wedding anniversary is the same day as ours! I do love Watercolour Words for quick, CAS wedding and anniversary cards, take a look...
I used a colour combo of Pool Party and Blushing Bride.
 The sentiment is from Number of Years and I added sequins from my stash but you could use the Metallics Assortment by SU!
Love a CAS card,
OK, so I hope you have a fab bank holiday weekend and remember my little bonus offer ;-)
 I do have a little "test" video for you so I'll get that uploaded in the next day or so but you have to let me know if you like the style (ooh, I'm being all mysterious and what not! ), not to worry though, it'll all become clear when you see it...
'till then,

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 sarah-janerae@sky.com
Thanks so much for looking today,
Stampin' Hugs,
