All Day Event - Birthday Blooms

Last Saturday I ran my first All Day crafting event of 2016, it's been a while since my last one and it was a lovely day with lovely people!
We created several projects throughout the day, enjoyed light refreshments and lunch and of course everyone had lots of goodies to take away with them.

Here is one of the projects we created, the layout of this card came from one created by a German demonstrator, Steffi Helmschrott, I just changed the stamps and colours to make it my own.
I included the Birthday Blooms stamp set with this class and the greeting is also part of this set, along with that cute little cluster of dots, little sprinkles, love it!
There was quite a bit of hand cutting involved throughout the day, but worth the effort, this flower is just so beautiful no matter how you stamp/colour it!
For this card we stamped the image in Versamark ink onto Shimmery White cardstock, then dipped into White Embossing Powder and heated.  We watercoloured with the Aqua Painters using ink from the lid of the ink pad.

We used Blushing Bride Ink for the watercolouring, applying more in areas to shade once it had dried
We used the Chalk Talk framelits dies to get the lovely decorative edge on the "Dear Friend" panel
The gorgeous leaves are from the Botanical Builder Framelits dies

Today I'm sharing the latest Weekly Deals, a great time to stock up on your Fast Fuse refills when they're at such a great price!

 On Saturday I held my first all day event for 2016, on these days we make a variety of projects, this time using brand new products from the Spring/Summer Catalogue.  Lunch is included as part of the day and we always have a fun time.

I will share pictures of the projects later as I need to wait for some good light to take some pictures, something I am struggling with lately and maybe I should think about creating my own light box!

But for now, here's a picture of the table treats I created for everyone, a Hot Chocolate Cup filled with Marshmallows and a Chocolate stirrer, just add hot milk and voila!

Number of Years

I have been keeping myself very busy playing with gorgeous new products from the recently released Spring/Summer Catalogue and at this point it is very difficult to pinpoint my absolute favourite item as there are several!
This set I've used on my card today "Number of Years" is in that ranking, I really do think it is such a useful set and apart from having those numbers handy for any age or occasions, I love the leafy floral image and the range of words included in the set, really valuable.
My card has a colour combo of
Tip Top Taupe
Mint Macaron
Watermelon Wonder
Blushing Bride
team with Whisper White
Stampin' Up! really do like to make our crafting easier for us so they have created some gorgeous number framelits to go with this set, a real winner for me!

I used the Word Window Punch to cut out my greeting and also re-punched to get a smaller window for the "ND" and "Happy" words.  I must take some pictures and show you how.

If you would like to get your hands on these gorgeous products, you can email or call me with an order and don't forget that our Sale-a-bration promotion is in full swing so with each £45 of products you purchase you get to choose an item for free from the brochure.
