Sharing Stampin' Up

I love Stampin' Up products! That's not exactly ground-breaking news but it's why I became a Stampin' Up demonstrator. Since then, I've thoroughly enjoyed sharing my passion with others, some of whom have joined me. If you love these amazing products too, there's a you-shaped space in my group - and now is a great time to join because, until May 30th, you'll get to choose an extra £25 worth of products when you buy your starter kit. It costs just £99 and you'll get £155 worth of goodies - and the best bit is that you can choose exactly what you'd like so there's no need to worry that you'll be duplicating products you already own. Interested? Click here to find out more or if you'd like to have a no-obligation chat about joining, give me a call on 01280 820593.

One of my favourite things to do with my Stampin' Up products hasn't changed since I first discovered them - pulling out a variety of stamp sets and getting inky! Today's card is a good example of that - come and have a look:

Card made with French Foliage and Secret Garden from Stampin' Up

This is the result of wondering what would happen if I paired some of the tropical blooms from Secret Garden with images from French Foliage. To make the background,  I sponged ink over some Whisper White card stock and added the script and some French Foliage leaves. The focal flowers were stamped over the top, coloured using an aquapainter and given detail with markers. To finish, I stamped the Secret Garden leaves and outlined flowers around the edge of the panel and sponged more ink over them to add depth. Oh boy, that was fun!

My daughter is a fervent believer in sharing - especially when it comes to my clothes and jewellery. She's not so much of a fan of replacing the items she borrows, but perhaps that's because she feels that dressing isn't enough of a challenge for me and that I may be invigorated by the thrill of the hunt for a jumper! 

It's Three Minute Thursday here tomorrow so do join me for a quick card!

  11. Gorgeous Vicky. I love how you've used those stamps. I nearly got my Secret Garden bundle today but UPS came this morning when I was at work. They've always come in the afternoon before. Needless to say I was at home all afternoon. Fingers crossed for tomorrow!
