Independent UK Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

Everything is Rosy Blog Hop...


Hi all,

Thank you so much for joining in with today's Everything is Rosy Blog Hop, I have really enjoyed working alongside some incredibly talented Demonstrators including  Teneale Williams and her team INKspired and me and my team the Pinkies.  It has been such fun playing with the Everything is Rosy Product Medley!  This is a new style set of products that Stampin' Up! have introduced for a limited time and will be available while stocks last only.

I'm sure you would have seen projects using this suite of products if you have tuned in to any Social Media platform and follow Stampin' Up! Demonstrators.  It is absolutely stunning and the photos definitely don't do the products justice.  The colour combinations are a mix of Navy and Pink with a splash of Rose Gold thrown in which is very on trend right now and so elegant!

My project for today's blog hop is a Fancy Fold card that looks like a handbag and I have even made the envelope for you!  I have included dimensions towards the bottom of my post for you.  It really is very simple to put together and the occasions are endless for this sort of card!

I hope you like it....


My handbag card has been put together using a piece of Night of Navy A4 Cardstock (measurements are listed at the bottom of this post) and sheets of the Everything is Rosy DSP.  The card itself is really easy to put together....that hardest part was choosing which sheets of DSP to use as they are all stunning!  I opted for the sheets that have the Rose Gold Foil images and coordinated all my embellishments around the Rose Gold Foil as I wanted this to be a special card.

This card, although is a 3D item, will fold totally flat so that it can be sent.


For the inside of the card, I wanted to use not only the DSP that coordinates with the outside of the card, but the die-cut pieces that have the Rose Gold Foil on also.  Included in the Everything is Rosy Product Medley are several sheets of die-cut pieces that include flowers and frames that just pop out making them really straightforward to use.

I have added these to the inside of my card along with some of the sentiments from the Everything is Rosy Stamp Set that I have stamped in Night of Navy ink to bring it all together.

I have also added some splashes of the Rose Gold Shimmer Paint that also comes in the Product Medley.


To finish my card, I thought it only right to make an envelope that matches!  I used my trusty (and soon to be retired) Envelope Punch Board and I have added an envelope liner in the matching DSP.

Happy Birthday with Geared Up Garage

Hi all,

Today's card is one that I made for a good friend who celebrated their Birthday on Tuesday this week so I can now share it with you!

I have used the bundle of products that include the Geared Up Garage Stamp Set and coordinating Garage Gears Dies.  If you have this set on your wish list then you can purchase the two items together and save 10% off the price.  From the 4th June, the two items will need to be purchased seperately.

For this card, I have used a standard C6 card base cut from Night of Navy A4 Cardstock.  I have added a strip of Designer Series Paper from the Sail Away DSP Collection that is available from the 4th June.

Before adding anything else, I have tied some Night of Navy Bakers Twine (also available from the 4th June).  


This bundle of products is great for putting together male orientated cards and the Garage Gears Dies are excellent for adding coordinating elements to your projects.  I particularly love the cog die that I have used on this card.  I have cut it out in Sahara Sand Cardstock and coloured over using a Dark Smoky Slate Stampin' Blend.

The car has been stamped using a Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad onto Whisper White Cardstock, coloured in with Stampin' Blends and cut out using the coordinating die.  I have attached the car to the card front using two sets of Stampin' Dimensionals to raise over the twine.

Butterflies, pockets and tabs....

Hi all,

I hope you are all having a good week so far.  It has been lovely to see the sunshine and the temperature finally feels like it is on the up!  Fingers crossed everyone.

Today's card is something a bit special and I really enjoyed putting this one together for you all.

I have started with a Whisper White Notecard that comes as part of a 20 card set complete with matching envelope.  These cards and probably my most used product as they are so handy for putting your cards together and a great quality too!  I often use them for my Coffee and Card sessions.  The currently cost £6 for a pack of 20 notecards and envelopes which works out at 30p per card, bargain!  They are available in Whisper White and Very Vanilla.  From the 4th June, the price is increasing to £7.00 so make sure to order them beforehand to get them at the reduced price.

This card is really difficult to photograph so check out my video below to see it in action!


I have used the Pocket Framelit Die to create the pocket on the front that I have added a pull-out tag to with a special message.

The Butterfly has been die cut from the Springtime Impressions Dies.  I wanted to keep the colour theme quite neutral so I used Sahara Sand Cardstock for this.  The Linen Thread that you can see tied in a bow, I have actually used the cut-out holes either side of the body to thread the Linen Thread through.  I always enjoy added ribbin and trim to my cards and it's good to find clever ways to incorporate it on your cards.


The sentiments that I have stamped onto my card all come from the Varied Vases Stamp Set that is available now and will be carrying over into the new 2019/20 Annual Catalogue. The phrases are all really complimentary of each other and the font is really pretty.

The sentiment on the tag inside the pocket comes from the Share What You Love Stamp Set.  I have stamped it in Sahara Sand directly onto the pocket.  I have stamped it again (on a seperate piece of white cardstock) in Balmy Blue, cut out the word "friend" and attached it onto the tag over the original stamped word.  This is a great way of getting a multiple coloured sentiment giving focus to a particular word.  This effect can also be achieved by masking on the actual stamp but I wanted the raised effect.
