Welcome to my Stampin' Up group!

So I'm at the Stampin' Up convention at the moment, hearing all the latest news, seeing the new releases, playing with new toys, being inspired to the max and, best of all, getting together with my lovely colleagues from all over Europe! Wouldn't you just love to be there? Well of course you could be next year! I'd love to welcome you to my group, the Inkredibles, and at only £99 for a starter kit, it's a very real possibility. Read all about it here and do feel free to contact me to find out more.

These are the welcome packs I sent out to my latest Inkredibles. My pack includes a handbook I've written to familiarise you with Stampin' Up; a notebook decorated and personalised for you; a card stock swatch including the trendy in-colours as well as the core colours; a handmade card; and a prettily embellished sweet treat.

I adore this wonderful stamp from Apothecary Art and it coordinates perfectly with the Labels framelits. I made the name tags in MDS and cut them out with my sharp paper snips.

These look too good to eat don't they (although I can assure you I wouldn't let that stop me!) The paper is from the Gingham Garden range and they're tied up with the lush stitched satin ribbon in Midnight Muse. The labels are a favourite of mine - they're stamped with That's the Ticket and cut out with the coordinating Ticket punch - easy peasy!

This is the card I made for my new ladies. The background is stamped with Gorgeous Grunge and I added the beautiful vintage phone image from Timeless Talk. I stamped it three times...

... cutting the second image out to pop up over the first with dimensionals and cutting the dial out of the third with a circle punch and popping that up too. The card was decorated with my favourite embellishments: candy dots and washi tape!

Here's what you'll need to make the card
Stamps: Gorgeous Grunge, Timeless Talk
Ink: Bermuda Bay, Soft Sky, Pumpkin Pie, Midnight Muse
Card stock: Rose Red, Whisper White
Other: Gingham Garden washi tape candy dots, 3/4" circle punch, paper snips, stamp-a-majig
