Varied Vases & Birthday wishes

Stampin Up demonstrator – Crafty Little Minx – Varied Vases & Birthday wishes

The new annual catalogue is packed full of gorgeous products and I’m having to avoid Pinterest right now to keep my wish list under control!

One stamp set that immediate caught my eye and catapulted to the top of my ‘must have’ list was the uber cute Varied Vases which can be bought as a bundle accompanied with a coordinating punch. This set was design by Mary Fish to celebrate hitting 1 Million Dollars of sales. Now that’s a lot of stamp sets! But then there are a lot of stamps in this gorgeous set

Craftylittleminx 07-06-18.12This card is a little more muted than my last class sample post, using a Powder Pink and Smoky Slate palette. However the ladies at my recent classes thought it was a lovely layout to pull together and could see lots of permutations of the theme.

There was no need for positioning or masks for this card as the photopolymer stamps made the placement really easy.  The punched vase covered up the stem for the orchids.

Did you notice the beautiful new embellishment pearls? They are from the new  share what you love artisan pearls. I think they just set off those orchids perfectly.

The inside also received some coordination attention and the sentiments in this set really allows you to cover off so many occasions.

Fathers Day with Apron of love

Stampin Up demonstrator – Crafty Little Minx – Fathers Day with Apron of love

Its fathers day  and I wanted to share the card I made for my amazing dad with all the days out there whether they are with you today, far away or living in your heart

I tend to  design my cards showcasing one of the fabulous Stampin’ Up! Stamp sets so today I used  Apron of Love. But I went all out with three Framelit die sets.

Crafty-Little-Minx-fathers-day-demonstrator-pin-up1

I cut the main body of the apron in watercolour card and smooshed it with night of navy, Early Expresso and Granite Grey, adding some contrast and folds to build up the texture.

The letter were mounted on three layers of thick whisper white card to make them pop.

Did you spot the cute little stars on the letters and background? Its from the Hearts come home Stamp set and its my current go to stamp for adding detail to masculine cards.

For the bottles I coloured the die cut water colour card, with my aqua painter and once dry added a shiny glaze with the fine tip glue pen.  The labels were hand written using my aqua painter.

I finished off the apron with some shiny silver foil barbecue tools and added the ribbed effect to the pocket with a marker. Voila!

You are wonderful!

Stampin Up demonstrator – Crafty Little Minx – You are wonderful!

Oh how I am loving the new additions to our colour families and they were the inspiration for this card using the beautiful new Rooted in Nature stamp set. I love how vibrant  all the colours  look together and my class attendees certainly had fun making this card.

Craftylittleminx 07-06-18.4

For this super simple but utterly stunning card. We masked off  a section of the card and using the sponge brayer’s layered the colour to create a brilliant block of colour. We then added a splatter of water to create a little more  texture. Craftylittleminx 07-06-18.5

We then used my new prized possession my stamparatus to add the tree and sentiment. With perfect positioning every time!

I love the overall effect once the faceted dots complete the project. Voila

My Top 5 Christmas buys – 2017

Stampin Up demonstrator – Crafty Little Minx – My Top 5 Christmas buys – 2017

Today we have free postage so its a chance to add some ‘I can’t live without’ items to your cart.

These are my current favourites but as I love pretty much all the contents or both of the current catalogues I may well have changed my mind tomorrow!

1. Get those Christmas cards ready in a jiffy!

Holiday17_p32a

If you saw my post yesterday you would have seen this year’s stunning project kit which makes 20 cards and is just £18. The cards are great quality and come with sumptuous gold liners for the envelopes included in the pack. whats not to love?

Craftylittleminx26-11-17.6

2 Dec the halls!

I just love the fact that some many of the products in the seasonal catalogue have multiple uses, but the Tags and trimmings bundle is my top buy in this category.  With the ability to use this die to quickly make multitudes of multicoloured stockings. This is a true value for money investment piece that you will want to use over and over again. You can make advent calender’s, tree decorations, table favours……. The sky is the limit!

3. Wrap it up!

For me its the labels that form one of the biggest elements of a my gift wrapping planning and the very versatile Merry Little Labels which we used it at our recent retreat completely fits the bill.

Holiday17_p04a

Our attendees loved this set with its coordinating punch and apart from copious amounts of gift labels we have been using the stamps to make cards, wine bottle wraps, and the wrapping paper itself!

Holiday17_p44b

4.0 Gift giving 

I love gift giving and if its totally handmade all the better. These Mini Pizza boxes fit the bill for flexibility and we have been using these  to gifts packs of mini cards,  gift cards, jewellery and home made fudge and peppermint creams.

Holiday17_p44a

I have a little stack of these pre decorated at the ready to grab for a last minute gift or I may use them as table favours on the run up to the big day!

Holiday17_p38b

5.0 Memory Keeping

Finally I have to say the Memories and More card pack is the perfect way to showcase all the fabulous Christmas memories that will accumulate on your phone over the festive season. Get those photos printed and preserve those memories forever. But if you cant wait,  this pack is also multi adaptable and makes great gift tags and  quick card fronts

Holiday17_kits_144638_Merry_little_card_collection

Watercolour Christmas

Stampin Up demonstrator – Crafty Little Minx – Onstage 2017 Spring Summer Catalogue 2018

So what do you do when its a bleak cold day and you find your self with an unexpected free afternoon?

Well for me there really only one option………

I lit the fire, made myself a latte and sat down to use this kit which has been calling out to me for the last few weeks.  Its the Watercolour Christmas Project Kit and I will be using it next week for a product class.

I think this is one of the best Xmas kits that Stampin’ Up! have released. I can see quite a few options to swap the layouts and sentiments if the matching stamp set is not your cup of tea. Personally I love it just as it is! However the best bit is you can make 20 cards for just £18.00. Yep you read it right its less than £1 per card……..

Craftylittleminx26-11-17.9

I loved the simplicity of the cards. Don’t you think the hints of gold from the mini sequins just finish this card off?

Craftylittleminx26-11-17.10

I added a little Wink of Stella to the stripes which took this card up another level

Craftylittleminx26-11-17.11

I have to say this layout was my favourite but it was a close call. Which is yours?

Craftylittleminx26-11-17.6

As you can see the fire is still burning and my coffee not long finished. Hardly surprising given it took me less than 60 minutes to make up the whole batch! Now I’m a hardy crafter and I was able to devote the whole hour to the project, but I can see this being a handy buy for anyone who wants to send handmade cards but doesn’t have much time

11-27-17_l2_demo_online-x_engjp1cba7c1b0be1686086dbff0000ec372d

Even better news! We have free shipping from 11.00 pm tonight until 10.50pm Monday night. So if you order tonight you may well have this kit in your home by next weekend and your handmade card making plans are back on track!
