Snowflake Snowcase from Stampin' Up!

Snowflake Showcase now available.

Stampin' Up! have spoilt us again with a fantastic set of products just for November. 
In this suite you can choose from: 
  • 2 stamp sets (Snow is Glistening and Happiness Surrounds)
  • 1 set of co-ordinating dies
  • Matching snowflake embellishments
  • 12x12" sheets (2 per pack) of white flock paper (perfect for die cutting)
I love that the dies can be used with EITHER stamp set,
but also they are fabulous as dies on their own. This fantastic set consists of 20 dies. I love the snowflake swirl - this would be fantastic for Winter Wedding cards.
Here are the two stamp sets. I have to say I opted to purchase the Happiness Surrounds when we were able to pre-order, but now I have added the Snow is Glistening to my next order!

Happiness Surrounds:

 Snow is Glistening:

Finally, some embellishments to make the suite extra special:
Snowflake 3D Metal trinkets with a low profile to save you money on postage ! 20 in the packet for £7.50

It's hardly worth showing you this photo of 2 sheets of flocked white paper! You can't tell from the photograph, but they make perfect die cuts. If you have a set of stocking dies, or santa hats, these would be perfect! You could also use these for snow across the base of a card or 3D project. 
I have linked all the images above to the complete suite on the website, so click on any of them and you can see all the detail. The stamp sets are available in multiple languages, so make sure you select the correct one when ordering online.

If you prefer to have the numbers to hand here they are:

149742 Snow is Glistening 14 stamps £20
149744 Happiness Surrounds 14 stamps £16

149619 White Velveteen Sheets (12"x12") pack of 2 £4.75

You can order in the usual way: online, or directly via me by email, text, messenger or phone!  If you are ordering online, make sure you use the November code: 3FJHMA2J for a free gift from me.

Gingham, Tartan or Plaid?

Do you know the difference between Gingham, Tartan or Plaid?

I have learnt that Gingham consists of one colour (on a background), where the others use multiple colours. I found a useful website HERE which explains it.  I have to say I do love Gingham designs - they remind me of summer tablecloths, jars of jam and all things home-made.

So it was not difficult for me to choose this background stamp when it became available in the new Stampin' Up! annual catalogue. It's called Buffalo Check and is available in wood or clear mount format.

Officially, Buffalo Check is "large blocks formed by the intersection of two different colour yarns, typically red and black" (source

I chose the Buffalo Check stamp for our coffee and card designs as it is so versatile, and you can use almost any colour combinations with it. Here are some designs I made this week:

Some as you can see are single colour + white (Gingham) and the others are tartans.

This is a single background stamp, with the addition of ribbon or baker's twine and a punched out sentiment to match. I think my favourite of the above samples is probably Garden Green and Real Red Christmas card, followed by the traditional red/white gingham. 

I used our 1/2" circle punch to make the little cut outs on either side for the twine/ribbon to slot into. All of the above were made with our Whisper White notecards and envelopes which are currently on offer until 7th October at £5.40 for 20 cards + 20 envelopes.

Here are just a few of the designs made by some of our attendees at coffee and card:

 So versatile - why not treat yourself to this stamp soon?
