Friendship card using Tea Shoppe

Hi my stamping friends!

Just a little friendship card to share with you today. I just love this sentiment,
"Stay is a charming word in a friend's vocabulary".

It's always nice when a friend says, "Stay just for one more cuppa." I know I have a few close friends
who would be nodding in agreement there! ;)

I have used the lovely new Tea shoppe stamp set on this card with that beautiful big tea cup stamped up in Island indigo. The lighter blue background is called pool party.

I hope this card inspires you a little, either to do some stamping or to have a friend pop over for a cup of tea!
Happy stamping!
Love, Claire

How to become a Stampin' up! demonstrator

Hi my stamping friends!

Have you ever thought about the idea of becoming a Stampin' up! demonstrator? It's a wonderful opportunity for many different reasons. Some people join for the social aspect and learning more about stamping, some people join for the discount available on their stamping products, others join so that they can make a great business out of it!
Below is a picture of the fabulous customisable kit that Stampin' up have for their new demonstrators. The items pictured below and the business pack included (but not pictured) is valuesd at an amazing $610 but as a new demonstrator you only pay $289. That is a great saving! And as I mentioned above it's customisable which means that you can choose your colours and which stamp sets you'd like (at the same or lesser value than those pictured).
I am writing this post as we have just been told that there will be changes made to this kit so as of April 30th, this will no longer be available! So if you would really like to order this kit then please contact me today as tomorrow, Monday, April 30th is your last chance to order this starter kit (We will need to fill in and fax off some forms to Stampin' up!).

Which leads me to introducing our new starter kit! Now there isn't a picture for this one because you can choose whatever you like! That's right, the new starter kit is FULLY customisable and is only $169. For that price you can order up to $235 worth of products (completely your choice, so you can get the Big shot or Simply scored or anything your little heart desires!) plus you will also receive a business supplies pack valued at $80 which includes catalogues and order forms and much more so that you can get your Stampin' up! business off to a flying start! Now, if you are keen to purchase this kit simply as a hobby demonstrator then you can still pass these catalogues on to your friends!
So this means you will be receiving your kit valued at up to $315 for only $169 and FREE shipping! Wow, hey?

As to how to become a demonstrator, simply contact me and I can help you with filling out the forms and explaining everything!

And... stay tuned as on Tuesday I will be announcing this months special from Stampin' up for new recruits and a special something for my lovely customers too! It's very exciting. If you would like further information then please send me an email at and I can add yout to my email mailing list.

Happy stamping!
Love, Claire

Sweet shop - Bring on the cake!

Hi My Stamping Friends!

I just had to share this sweet little card with you today using this new set of Designer Series papers (DSP)  called Sweet shop The set includes 8 double sided patterned papers and four sheets of embossed papers (12 sheets of 12"x12" in total). Those white hearts on the Calypso Coral background are actually raised. And there is another sensory element to this card... I have embossed the greeting with vanilla scented stampin' emboss powder! So it smells like vanilla! So much fun. I have more ideas brewing with these papers so please stay tuned!
You can find these sweet papers and scented embossing powders in the new Autumn-Winter mini catalogue on pages 22 and 23. If you don't have your copy yet then please contact me and I can get one to you - or click on the link on my sidebar to view the catalogue online.

Happy Stamping!
Love, Claire

Tea Shoppe easel card


Hi my stamping friends!
Today I have a little easel card to share with you made with our new Label Framelits.I've used one of my most favourite stamp sets here, Morning cup and a sentiment from the new Tea Shoppe stamp set. You can also see a little of the new pleated satin ribbon hiding in there :)

The inside sentiment is from "Tea Shoppe", heart embossing from the new Adorning accents embossing folders and an Antique brad holds the card open when it is standing.

 Please ask if you have any questions!
Happy Stamping!
Love, Claire

New mini and a stamping class!

Hi my stamping Friends!!

It's April! Time for a new mini catalogue! YAY!
Oh and it's so beautiful... please click the link to the right of this post to see the lovely new Autumn-Winter mini catalogue. I had to seriously hold myself back from buying almost everything in this one!

Below I have a little card which uses a few new products!

We have a gorgeous new set of diecutting frames for the big shot. They are called Framelit labels and come in a set of 6 so you can cut out and layer them! And, of course, it wouldn't be Stampin'up! without a co-ordinating stamp set! The lovely Apothecary Art set works delightfully with the framelits. The stamp set includes four label shaped stamps of different sizes and two greetings, "Happiest birthday"and "So grateful".

In this next photo you may also notice some divine new pleated satin ribbon in Baja breeze as well as that dainty little patterned paper down the bottom there which is from the Twitterpated range that includes DSP (Designer series papers), Designer fabric, some flowery little designer buttons in Blushing bride and Baja breeze and of course that ribbon! Yummo!
You can see here I have also had some fun with the Vintage wallpaper and Square lattice embossing folders and the sweet little Scallop trim border punch. The little flower comes from the Boho bossoms punch and has a little pearl as the centre.
The colours used on this card are Whisper white, Lucky limeade, Basic Gray, Calypso coral, Poolparty (marker), Baja breeze (ribbon and DSP).

I will be running a stamping class next Thursday evening, April 19th at 7:30pm. And this is one of the cards we will be making on the night. If you can make it along please RSVP by April 16th.

Thanks for looking and Happy Stamping!
Love Claire
