Stampin' Up'! Wood Words - Pinkies Weekend Swaps

I had the most fabulous weekend in Birmingham last weekend at the Stampin' Up! Pinkies Demonstrator Team Training Weekend.

When I go to these events we all have to take along a card front or a 3d project to swap with the other ladies/gentlemen and this time I had to make 54 swaps, wow!! It was fine as I love these events and it's great to get back 54 different swaps to use in my business. These are my swaps below made with the Stamp Set Wood Words which is a one of the brand new stamp sets in the 2017 - 19 Annual Catalogue.

Wood Words
This is the stamp set and matching framelits that I used and it comes as a bundle with a saving of 10%. I used Rose Red Card Stock and Blushing Bride and Rose Red Ink. The sentiment is from the stamp set and the cute little heart is one of the small framelits from the bundle.  

Wood Words Bundle
All the ladies that belong to the Pinkies Team were invited to go along and join in the event. We got to make lots of projects, enjoy each other company and mainly eat cake and crafted together.  This is one of the highlights of the year for me and one of the best bits of being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator and being of the Pinkies Team. These ladies are so much fun to be around and we did so much talking it's a wonder we got any crafting done. Here are some of the lovely projects we got to make. Each project was designed by one of the lovely Pinkies and we got to make all three. Plus a couple of other i will share with you next week.


And here are some of the lovely ladies that I got to share my weekend with such a great bunch of ladies and they all love crafting just like me.

and here are all the ladies that I shared the weekend with what a happy bunch of ladies we are

I'm so happy that i work for such a fun company and i get to meet such great ladies and enjoy crafting with them. That's what I love about Stampin' Up!.

Stampin' Up! Nailed It Father's Day Card

I wanted to share with you another lovely card that I have just made. I loved using the Nailed It Stamp Set for my class last week so I decided to use it again for my Daddy and his Father's Day card. My dad is always in his garage doing something or other and is such a great DIY person that this set was perfect, I think all dads lovely their garages if not to just get away from their kids:) and the wife!!!

I started by getting a piece of the lovely Cucumber Crush Card Stock and cutting it at 10.5cm down the middle. I then folded it in half and scored at 14.9cm I used some of the super cute Urban Underground DSP at the top and I then stamped using Memento Ink, the hammer, Screwdriver and Saw and coloured them in using my Watercolour Pencils and Blender Pen. I love the Watercolour pencils they are so easy to use and I love the result.

Nailed It

I then fussy cut out the tools which is easy to do and stuck them on the card using some dimensionals.
The sentiment is from the same stamp set but I will share a secret I just used the Stampin' Write Maker in Cucumber Crush and just coloured the words in, as i didn't want the lines either side of the words. (if you see the stamp set you will see what I mean, hopefully :)) The punch I used is a little sneak peak of a brand new punch called  Pretty Label Punch and it's available from the 1st June.
The other little sentiment is from the stamp set also and I used the Banner Triple Punch to cut that out.

I loved the way it turned out and it really didn't take long to do. 

If you like the stamp set why not get one for yourself and make some super men's cards to. You can click on the Picture above and It will take you to my online shop or you can click on the highlighted purple items and this will also take you to my website. All supplies can be purchase through my online shop and if you use my online Hostess Code  ZKZAEPYF I send out a handmade card and Stampin' Up! Free Gift. I'm always happy to help so get in touch if you would like any further help.

Have a great weekend

Stampin' Up! Nailed It Men's Cards by Tracy Abrahams

I just wanted to share with you a fab class i held on Wednesday night using the super cool Nailed It Stamp set by Stampin' Up! This is my new favourite stamp set, well for this week anyway, it makes the cuties men's tools and when you colour them in they come alive.  As you can see below we made 3 cards all using the stamp set.  

Nailed It Stamp Set
The cards were made to show off how versatile the stamp set is and that you can not only make a fab background like in the spanner card which we heat embossed but with just a little bit of the matching dsp from the Urban Underground suite you can make a Fathers Day card in minutes.

Nailed It Stamp set

The card below with the tools was coloured in using the Watercolour pencils which all the ladies enjoyed doing. Colouring is such a therapeutic thing after a hard day and you can just feel the tension melting away,

Nailed It Stamp Set 

This one was made by one of the ladies and she decided she just wanted to colour it in using the basic grey watercolour pencil and some of the Wink of Stellar Clear to make it a little sparkly,

and here's all the ladies enjoying the evening. It was such a fun night and everyone went home with 3 men's cards.

I love sharing my passion for Stampin' Up! as there stamp sets, framelits and inks always give a great result.

Stampin' Up! - Window Shopping Birthday Cards

You know I love a nice stamp set and Stampin' Up! do such lovely ones. The Window Shopping Bundle 144743 is one I've been playing with this week and it's so so lovely. I had a super card making class on Tuesday and we made 2 cards and a gift box so the stamp set and thinlits dies were sitting waiting on my desk to be played with again.

Window Shopping Bundle (stamp set and thinlits dies) 

I made these super cards using the little die cuts that come along with Window Shopping Thinlits Dies gift box 144743, they are for embellishing the sides of the gift box but as you can see they make super cards on there own. There are 9 dies total and I used the heart, little spots and the candle to make these cards.

Window Box Thinlits Die Bundle 

The first card I made using the little die with the hearts on and I made it into a shaker cards which means I placed some window sheet 142314 behind the die cut section. I then place my super cute sprinkles Embellishments 142741 on the card and just placed the little cut out section with the hearts on, on top you have to use some of our foam adhesive strips 141825 to raise it  up and then the sprinkles can move about underneath.

Window Shopping Bundle

The next card I made using the die was with the little spotty holes in it and I did the same thing and made that also into a shaker card, this time i put some sequins behind the window.

The last card I made also used the little heart die but this time i made it into a thinking of you card, all the sentiments come from the great Window Shopping stamp set 142920. I especially love the happy birthday sentiment as it has a retro feel to it and it makes the colour on the sentiment seem graduated so the card looks super cute as you can see above.

Window Shopping Bundle

I love this card so quick and easy and it looks so cool.

You can click on any of the pictures to visit my online shopping website.  I would love you to take a look and see how great this set is, we have had so much fun using it this week and I'm sure I will find lots of other uses for the dies in this set.

My hostess code is  NJXAGANT this month and when you use it I send out a great Stampin' Up! Free gift as an extra for using my online site and a hand made card.

There is still time to also grab a Sale-a-bration item with 15 to choose from (catalogue to choose the items from is on the side of this page and its clickable) also the annual and seasonal catalogues are available to look at.

Stampin' Up! - Falling In Love Anniversary Cards

I've fallen in love, excuse the pun with the gorgeous Stampin' Up! Falling In Love Suite. It's so beautiful and makes the most adorable anniversary or wedding cards. I have quite a few anniversary's coming up and needed a bunch of them quickly.

Falling In Love Suite

The Falling in Love Designer Series Paper is so pretty and was perfect for the cards. The Dsp comes in 12 x 12 and has 12 sheets 2 each of 6 double sided designs. I cut one sheet into 6 and used them on top of my Tip Top Taupe card stock.

Falling In Love Designer Series Paper
I then cut one of the Lace Dollies into 2 and used 1/2 on each card (they go along way like that) there are 24 in a pack for only £4, I put the doily on top of the Tip Top Taupe Mini Striped Ribbon and cut out the word love in Silver Glimmer Paper using the work from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits.

Falling In Love Suite

I then used one of the sentiments from the Falling For You stamp set and heat embossed it in Silver Embossing Powder, and they were all done. It sounds like they would take a long time but they really didn't and I had 6 fab cards already to send out.

Falling In Love Dsp
