Gorgeous Calming Camellia stamp set

 So quick and easy to make cards with this set.

The card on the left above was created simply with 2 stamps - the main camellia stamp and the sentiment - that's it. 
All of the detail is in the stamp itself, as one of the Stampin' Up! ® DistInktive stamps; a highly etched rubber stamp with all the detail built into it.
Its the perfect stamp set for quick and easy cards, as all you need to do is stamp the main image in your chosen colour, and then add your sentiment of choice.
The set includes some lovely sentiments in a nice font too:
It's the little things that make life great
I love being your friend
You're in my thoughts today
Happy Birthday
Lovely You
You make me smile

Use white craft ink for a stunning design

In the following video you can see that I have used some white craft ink to highlight the flower which has been stamped onto Smoky Slate card.

Would you like to get this stamp set for FREE?
If so, there are a few ways you can do this. 
  • Place a Stampin Up! order over £275 with me and you will earn your own set.
  • Place any value order with me between 7 - 28 February and you will be entered into a draw to win one.

We used this stamp for our Coffee and Card sessions, and it went down really well.

NEW Easy Card Making kit - Light the Candles

I am so happy to share this new kit with you.

Thank you for stopping by today, I am really pleased to share this brand new card-making kit with you. Released in February 2022, this kit will make 8 cards, 4 each of 2 different designs; this kit includes everything you need, including adhesives.

Packed in a solid cardboard box, this would make a great gift as the kit itself, or would be ideal if you made up the cards and gifted the finished set of 8 cards. I have 2 videos (originally recorded LIVE on Facebook) on the kits, which you can watch below.

This kit is just one of our Kits Collection available - there are many different ones to choose from, not just cardmaking but also gifts and packaging, including card kits for men.  Please note that all of our kits are available whilst stocks last, so there is no guarantee how long they will be available for.

Here is a link to our complete kits collection; that way you can see whats available at the time you read this post! CLICK HERE or on the photo below.

This kit is perfect for beginner crafters, but if you are an experienced crafter you can carry on and make many aternative cards using the components. For example you could cut up the card bases and use them as designer paper as a backing to another card. You could also replace the patterned backing with an alternative colour of glitter card.

I am running a local (UK) monthly card class with our kits - just comment or email me to find out more details.

Retiring List making way for NEW products in January

 Retiring and Clearance Rack Bargains

Retiring List/Last Chance Products

Our fantastic July-December Stampin' Up! catalogue is coming to an end on 3rd January, when our brand new mini catalogue will be released. 

I will be sad to see some of these items retire, but we need more space in the warehouse (and my craft room) for all the new goodies that are due to arrive.   Some of our fantastic products WILL be carried over and you may see them in a future catalogue, so don't despair!

Of the retiring items, Stampin' Up! offer a range of discounts, typically up to 50%. So many stamp sets are now priced at £10 or less! These retiring items are only available whilst stocks last. The best way to check is to hop straight to our Last Chance products section on my online store. You can do that HERE or by clicking on the image above. The best way to order is online, you can send me an email with your order, but the item may go out of stock before I place my order.

Clearance Rack 







As if that wasn't enough,  Stampin' Up! have also updated the clearance rack - grab even bigger bargains there! Click HERE TO VISIT or on the graphic above.  Of course, you can mix and match all items, so you can place an order which includes catalogue items, clearance rack and retiring items!


Don't forget to use our Host code: TKGHJYAQ with any order under £150 for a thank you gift from me.

 Happy Shopping!

More animal-themed cards - this time it's the SHEEP that take centre stage

What's better than a cute sheep themed stamp set?

A FREE cute sheep themed stamp set!

Continuing our animal themed cards, today it's the turn of the sheep, using a stamp set you can obtain for free when you order £45 of products from Jemini Crafts as part of our Sale-A-Bration promotion.

The stamp set is called Counting Sheep, and I used it conjunction with our Stamparatus to create some cards in the round.

You can have great fun with this stamp set, mixing it with other stamps such as Penguin Place with those fabulous balloons. There is also a FREE set of matching dies, which cut out the sheep, but also have a fabulous die cut gate/fence.  You can also earn these for FREE with another £45 of orders, so place an order of £90 or more and you can snap up both.
You can see the stamps below - featuring 3 different sheep poses! Also included are 2 sentiments, a party hat and a useful grass/ground image.

You can see how I made these cards by watching the video below. The Stamparatus is definitely your best friend for this type of card.


took the stamps to our Coffee and Card sessions this week - here was one of the finished designs. The balloons, strings and Happy Birthday message are all from the Penguin Place stamp set.

In fact, if you purchased the Stamparatus you could choose the Counting Sheep as your free item! Here is a list of the main supplies used above: Product List
