New Stampers 6 Club and a card using In The City Hostess Stamp Set

Hello there,
Today I would like to talk about my new Stamper's 6 club!
This is a great way to get a little SU! product each month and once in the cycle (or more) YOU get to be the virtual host/hostess. No, we aren't all coming round for crafting and tea, although we could if you'd like... ;-) it simply means in your host(ess) month you have a minimum of £15 to spend on anything in any current catalogue -including the discounted and hugely coveted host(ess) only sets!! And IMO they are some of the very best there has ever been, this year.
The commitment is to spend at least £25 each month (or more, if you like) for 6 months, plus shipping from me to you (I pay the delivery from SU!) on whatever products you choose. Each month you'll get your chosen products delivered direct to your door and a special something from me too! Of course you can choose to order whatever you like including any special offers/clearance items that SU! are offering.
It's simply a great way to spread the cost of building up your stash. 
In your host(ess) month you can continue with your minimum order as usual or if you want to collect orders from friends or put in a larger order to boost your benefits then, great! More host(ess) benefits for you! But you will get at least £15 to spend, no matter what. Of course you can take more than one spot and commit to spending £50 each month and have two months with hostess benefits too!
I currently have FOUR places left.
So, for your host(ess) rewards you could choose the lovely set "In The City" for just £14.50 (hostess pounds, worth £24.00 regular) and maybe make a card like this...
I stamped the outlines in Sahara Sand ink onto shimmer card and watercoloured  them using ink pads and my aqua painter. It's not a no line colouring as such, just a softer look than black lines...
 I just love this set and for just £14.50 (hostess pounds) I think it's fantastic value for 60 stamps! And so versatile!
So, I do hope you've enjoyed today's card? And let me know if you are interested in joining my new Stampers 6 club! 
You can drop me a line at: 
I will also be sending out Christmas catalogues this week too! There's lots of fun things to order in this club in there too, I promise!
I can't wait to start as soon as I have enough participants, hopefully in the next couple of weeks! I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Using Stampin' Up's Floral Statements on Crumb Cake

Hi there,
This card is one we made at team training recently and it's fair to say it received a mixed reaction - popular with some but not so with much the non-colourers in the group ;-) But at least everyone liked the end result. Phew! As you know, I do love to colour so I (naturally) think this set is just fab-u-lous! I had wanted to try this whitewash technique with this set ever since I first had it so lets take a look....
 I made a little photo tutorial HERE a couple of years ago but for this version I coloured over the white ink with the Berry Burst and Tranquil Tide ink pads using a blender pen.
TIP: Keep the Berry Burst to the areas where you want it only as it stains the white embossing powder and dab the excess regularly. You can be less careful with the Tranquil Tide as it's pigment doesn't seem so strong as to stain.
 I finished by adding the image to a Berry Burst card base and dotting a few sequins on too.
So, that's all from me for today, thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you liked the card :-)

Watercoloured Fabulous Flamingo by Stampin' Up!

Hello there and Happy Sunday!
Stampers 6 Club Information HERE
Card Class Information HERE
I have a list of jobs as long as your arm to get through in the next few hours/days.... so obviously I'm going out this afternoon instead! Lol!
Before I do I wanted to share a fun, summery card with you while the weather actually resembles summer (here in the South of the UK, anyway) so I have this fun flamingo card. This "Fabulous Flamingo" stamp set is yet another set I purchased as soon as it came out and hadn't had a chance to play with until now - so many fun products and not anywhere near enough time! I love this image and how this card turned out, take a look....
This flamingo is a three step stamp so (on watercolour paper) I started by stamping using Blushing Bride for the first layer then Flirty Flamingo for the second layer. I then stamped the water and coloured it using an aqua painter and matching ink.  Finally I lightly wet the flamingo image with my stampin' spritzer using just plain water.
 Once I was happy with the spread of water and ink I added a few extra flicks of water and some clear wink of stella sprays too before drying it using my heat tool. I then finished with the black outline flamingo image at the end.
 All finished with some hand cut leaves and mounted onto Kraft card which is just the perfect balance to this watercoloured look.
Right, that's all from me for me for today, I hope you get a chance to be crafty today! I'll be back tomorrow with another Flamingo card :-) 
Don't forget about my new Stampers 6 club and Card Classes - more info below...

Shimmery Birthday Blooms

Hi there,
It's so easy to get swept up in the excitement of all the lovely new products available but I do like to remind myself every so often of the many lovely stamps that I already have! So, with that in mind today's cards use the Birthday Blooms stamps. I do love to colour and this set is so lovely so when I got a new set of Gansai shimmer paint recently I was keen to have a play. Unfortunately it is quite hard to photograph the lovely colour and get the shimmer to show as well, but I gave it a go ;-)
I stamped the flower image and heat embossed it in white on watercolour paper so it was nice and easy to colour. Here's the pink version...
 And a Wisteria Wonder base to compliment this purple flower...
I had a lot of fun colouring these flowers to send as thank you cards :-)
Why not break out one of your "old" sets and have a play today ;-)
