Sampin' Up! Perfectly Preserved

Hello there,
I am hosting a Macmillan coffee morning today but I thought I would pop on and share a card with you first ;-) I will try to remember to take a few pics today and share some of the goings on tomorrow too.
So, on to today's card. I made this one for my lovely friend and down line Anna for her birthday a few weeks ago and as I am so in love with this set I just had to use it ;-) 
I used a rich and feminine colour combo of Island Indigo and Raspberry Ripple with Crumb Cake
 some masking of the flowers to fit them in the jar
I *heart* this ruffled ribbon, it also makes great flowers (see side bar for tutorial)
 and I decorated inside too
and I also made a matchbox style box to pop her gift in too 
Island Indigo card for the base with an outer wrapper made with Orchard Harvest DSP from the Autumn/Winter catalogue (page 28)
with a matching jar on the front to finish
Right, I had better get going before everyone gets here, wish me luck!!

Toxic Treats by Stampin' Up!

Hello there, 
Today I want to share with you some Halloween bunting I made recently using the awesome Toxic Treat stamp set, loving toxic treats and as you can see here it's not just to decorate gifts!
Waa hhaaa hhhaa haaaa :-)
We will be making a similar version of this at the Halloween Bunting class on the Monday 8th October if you would like to come along and make this then please email me to book a spot. 
So, how about a few close ups for you too...
 I inked all the edges with basic grey ink for that spooky feel
 and stamped different images using markers for that multi coloured look
 with the smaller triangles in between
 I also hung the bunting with bakers twine, adding some stripey ribbon in a knot in between each pennant
Well, that's all for today, I hope you like today's post and I will be back soon with more Halloween treats.
Thanks for dropping by today

Another All Day Class

After last weeks very successful All Day Class I have had a couple of people ask, as they couldn't make it to the first date, if I am doing another one before Christmas? As I haven't any more dates planned for new all day events I have decided to run it again for one more day :-) The next date is going to be the 4th October running from 9 till 3, so during the school day, this is the same amount of time as the Saturday class just an earlier start :-))) 
The cost is £30 and you will get over £25 worth of products plus full instructions and use of all the equipment needed plus as much or as little help as you need too. I can  also send you the kit by post but you would need to provide your own stamps (or purchase them from me) to make the exact same cards. 
Closing date to reserve your place is MONDAY 24th SEPTEMBER, this is so your kit arrives in plenty of time, message me today
So, I thought I might share with you some of the projects from the class....
These cards are from  the stamps a stack section of the class and show a sneak peek at the 4 cards you would be making two of, 
some Gingerbread men from Scentsational Season
 3d Ornament using Ornament Keepsakes set
  a blingy snowflake
  and some cute mittens :-)
So, if you would like to come along for some crafty fun then email me today for details :-)

Apothecary Art by Stampin' Up!

Hello there,
I have a couple of cards today which we made at class I held during the summer, this time using the Apothecary Art stamp set. Don't worry, this set will be available again in a couple of weeks in the new catalogue! 
I have now got just 2 places left on my new Stampers 6 club starting this October!! 
and if you decide to join I will send you a copy right now of the fantastic new main catalogue, a copy of the lovely Autumn/Winter catalogue plus a FREE gift to welcome you too!!!! 
Message me today to reserve a spot (or two) and be a hostess without the hassle!! 

But I have so much to share with you that I am going to give you a double dose again today :-)
The first card is a colour combo of Rich Razzleberry, Sahara Sand and Pretty in Pink
Punched Boho Blossoms flowers with glass glitter centres
 and some Organza ribbon too
 Now, for the second card we used marina Mist card with Crumb Cake DSP
 We stamped the image straight onto Crumb Cake, which I think gives a lovely effect, then coloured in with a blender pen, don't mention my wonky sentiment though ;-)
Right, I'm off, I have loads to do today again ;-)
Thanks for stopping by today, I love you visiting!
