Stampin' Up! Watercolor Wishes Card Kit

 Watercolor Wishes Card Kit

Hello everyone! Today I wanted to show you the Watercolor Wishes Card Kit. It comes as a kit with everything you need to make 20 cards. That includes the card bases, with pre-watercoloured designs,, the envelopes, embellishments, stamps and, acrylic block, and 2 small ink blocks.

Here are some of the cards that I've made with it:

Now, I know some of you may be put off by the price - €42.50/£31.50 - but what you have to remember is that for that you end up with 20 finished cards, plus left over bits, and the wonderful stamp set that goes with it you can use for other projects. If you think of it that way, it's actually great value for money.

Stampin' Up! have made a video to show all the cards in the kit, it's worth having a look.

If you have any questions about the kit, or about anything Stampin' Up! related, please feel free to contact me - there's a box over there in the side bar. The Watercolor Wishes Card Kit is available in my shop, just click on the link if you'd like to buy it.

Stampin' Up! Sneak Peek - Curvy Corner Trio Punch

Today I thought you might like to see the new corner punch I've been mentioning. It's in the new Autumn/Winter catalogue, out September 1st. The photo above shows what Stampin' Up! did with it. They've called it the Curvy Corner Trio Punch.

Here's what it looks like - three different punches in one!

Stampin' Up! Curvy Corner Trio Punch

The top two sections punch different corners, and the bottom punches the hole for ribbon.

I used the Lots of Joy stamp set from the Annual Catalogue to make a couple of tags, but of course you could use it on corners for cards too.

This last photo shows the two tags I made with the new punch, and one I made with the current Scalloped Tag Topper.

Price for the new punch? €24.00/£18.00. Good value I think.

If you'd like to see the new punch in the flesh, you are welcome to come along to my Open Day for the new Autumn/Winter catalogue on Thursday 3rd September. Please contact me for directions - I'm in Maël Carhaix.

Stampin' Up! Arrows embossing folder - Congratulations card

Stampin' Up! Arrows embossing folder card

Here's the card made with the Arrows embossing folder that I promised to show you. I really like the cleanness of it. I saw something similar on Janbcards and thought I'd have a go.

I've used Kraft card for the card base, then some of the new Neutrals designer series paper stack - I chose the black flowers.

I measured 1½ins (3.7cm) from the top and bottom of the Whisper White card and made a mark, then put the card into the embossing folder just up to the mark. Then turned it round to do the same at the other end.

That left a gap in the middle of the card to put a background banner, then a Whisper White banner. The Huge Congrats sentiment is from the Water Color Wishes card kit (more on that kit in a future post), but you could of course use whatever sentiment you wanted. Add a couple of rhinestones and it's finished!

You might also notice the corners - punched with the new corner punch in the Autumn/Winter catalogue. I'll be showing it to you in the next couple of days. It's a great new punch that does three different things!

Stampin' Up! Autumn Winter 2015 catalogue

I know, I know, it's too early to be thinking about Christmas yet, but I'm going to show you anyway!

The new Autumn/winter catalogue goes live on 1st September so I thought I'd give you a sneak peek. I can only show you the cover and some cards I've made with a couple of the sets inside, you have to wait until 1st September to see it all.

So, here are a couple of cards made with sets and dies in the catalogue. I've copied a couple of the photos in the catalogue because I thought they were rather good.

Stampin' Up! Embellished Ornaments card Christmas card

This is a stamp set called Embellished Ornaments. It also has some dies that go with it. Stampin' Up! have bundled them too with a 15% discount.

Here's one made with the dies:

What do you think? I really like this stamp set. I'll tease you with another set next week.

I'll be having an Open Day at my house, probably on Wednesday 2nd September to showcase some of the new stamp sets. If you're interested please contact me - I live in Mael Carhaix.

Don't forget too that there are some Christmas items in the Annual Catalogue if you really want to get ahead.

Hello everyone, here are this week's Weekly Deals. As you can see we've gone back to the usual number of deals now, just six, but they are available all week until next Tuesday evening.

I think the deals are particularly good this week, in fact I've ordered the Arrows embossing folder myself!

Look out later in the week for a post about the new Seasonal Catalogue. It launches on September 1st and is packed with autumnal and Christmas goodies. I know it might sound too early to be talking about Christmas already, but when you see the catalogue I think you might change your mind!

Stampin' Up! Weekly Deals

Hello! I've had a busy week which is why this post is a day late. I went back to Cornwall for a few days to celebrate my grandmother's 100th birthday with my family. We had a great time, and the weather was kind to us for the party we had. The changes that my grandmother has seen in her lifetime are huge. She's an inspiration to all the family.

Back to Stampin' Up! As you can see, included in this week's deals is the Envelope Punch Board. This is such a versatile piece of equipment, it was already great value, but for this week it's even better!

The video from Stampin' Up! shows how to make envelopes with it, but you can do so much more. You can also make boxes and bows, and more. A quick look on YouTube will give you loads of ideas. 

Clicking on the above picture will take you to the Weekly Deals section in my shop if you'd like to order, but you only have until next Tuesday (11 August) evening, the deals change after that.
