More Stampin' Up freebies available now!

Most of us have seen the new Stampin' Up catalogue by now (but if you haven't, click on the picture in my sidebar to be transported to Gorgeousland!) and most of us have our wish lists all prepared. Well this month could be the month to go for it ladies, because those nice people at Stampin' Up are giving away extra freebies until 15th December 2011!

Any orders totalling £300 or more (whether they're workshop orders, individual orders or groups clubbing together) will be eligible for £50 of freebies from the catalogue, AND any item at half price - AND, on top of that, the gorgeous Paisley Petals designer paper together with the coordinating stamp set!

Here are the papers - you get 12 sheets of top quality double-sided paper in a 12"x12" size. All Stampin' Up papers are designed to match the inks and card stock too, which really takes the guess-work out of your projects.

And here are the stamps - you get these five images in the set and they come in a choice of wood or clear mount. I love the way they coordinate perfectly with the Paisley Petals papers. I've been having a lovely time making cards with these - and I have one to show you today! Come and see:

I love the seed pod design on this particular paper and the colours are stunning! I'm a huge fan of the new Calypso Coral, an unusual shade which contrasts beautifully with greens and blues and is really striking with black and white too.

The paper is definitely the star of this card with the plain flower and leaf cluster allowing it to shine.

Supplies needed for this card:
Stamps: Easy Events (sentiment)
Ink: Cajun Craze
Card stock: Calypso Coral, Very Vanilla, Always Artichoke
Punches: Five Petal, Boho Blossoms
Other: Paisley Petals designer paper, Little Leaves sizzlits die, Cajun Craze brad, stamp-a-majig
I'd be delighted to order any of these supplies for you and I can have them delivered to your address in the UK. I am committed to providing excellent customer service and am always happy to help and advise. Just send me an email or give me a call on 01280 820593. 

Today I get my youngest son back home - which makes me very happy! He's been on a school trip to an adventure centre and we have all really missed him. I have the washing machine and the bath on standby (!) and I can't wait to hear what he's been up to!

I hope you have a great weekend. I'll be up bright and early to check the Less is More site for the latest challenge of course. I've thoroughly enjoyed being Chrissie and Mandi's guest this week and have tried to visit every single LiMette that has taken part. If you've not tried this challenge site yet I highly recommend it for its friendliness as well as its wealth of talent and inspiration!

See you very soon,

    PS. Yes, I'd certainly make a good stand in for Rudolph at the moment lol :o)

  12. Beautiful card Vicky. I love creating flowers with these two punches.
    Thanks for the advise about the punched stars. I did try it with paper but because the stars are small it didn't give the destired effect.
