Stampin' Up!

Craft Area Tour!

Here is a short video of what is in my little crafty space 🙂  I don’t have anything extravagant but it is adequate for me and keeps me organised.  What are your craft room tips??

I will say, since joining to become a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator my supplies take up far less room! And my spending is curbed as I’d rather buy once a month than buy lots of unessessary supplies every week like iI

Feel free to tag me and share.

“Let it Ride” preview #SimpleStamping Spring/Summer 2019 Occasions Stamp set

photocollage_20181221144758893.jpg

A cute but very easy and quick to make “Live as if someone left the gate open – Go for it” horse-themed card with one of my new favourite stamp sets – Let it Ride – I love the quality of image that the stamp produces and I think the Night of Navy Co-ordinating Card stock and Ink go well with it.. I love how versatile this set is, and I just can’t stop playing around with it!!!

Now this stamp set is available in the new Spring/Summer 2019 Occasions catalogue being launched on 3rd January 2019. The other materials are available in the Standard Annual Catalogue and links are provided below.

What you will need is:

A4 night of navy cardstock cut to 10 x 5 inches, score/fold in half at 5″
A4 whisper white cardstock for stamping layer measuring 4 3/4 ” square
Night of Navy Stamp Pad
Stamping Blocks
Let it Ride Stamp Set (not avail. till 3/1/19)

Now, you don’t have to use Night of Navy, use what ever co-ordinating stock you have – but you must agree, Stampin’Up! colour co-ordinations are just fantastic – not your normal colour palette!

 

I hope you have fun playing around and trying out this card, or one similar. As long as you co-ordinate your colours the best you can, these cards WON’T turn out bad 🙂

Happy Stamping!

Love Tx
