|Apothecary Art Framelit Card|
|Apothecary Art Framelit Swing Card|
The first one is a very simple mat and double layer card - this is what is so fantastic about this stamp set, you only need to stamp it onto one layer and then colour it using ink pads and a blender pen. I finished this one off with some pearl jewels and a bit of our beautiful pleated satin ribbon in Baja Breeze (again this is in the Summer mini - don't miss out!).
The Second card was a bit trickier looking but really quite easy using the Big Shot - I so love my Big Shot!! I have to thank Michelle Last for this design (check out her gorgeous blog). I used another two images from the Apothecary Art stamp set, one on the front and one inside. This is a lovely finish to the card by lining it with a layer of Twitterpated designer series paper and then stamping and cutting out the little plaque to write your message on. I used Stampin' Write markers to colour this and put a few little pearls on to accent it.

Just thought I'd share this birthday card I made for my good friend John. I just love using the Owl Punch to make a card! It's quite similar to one I made for my friend Linda for her birthday but this one uses the new edgelits for the Big Shot too.

Why do I love being a demonstrator? .... Where do I start?
- I get to meet amazing people who share my passion for papercrafting;
- I learn new techniques constantly;
- There are always so many new beautiful products to play with;
- I get them at a discount!;
- There are always special offers and promotions;
- I can do it MY WAY, earning as much or as little as I want;
- I can be a demonstrator as a business, career or hobby;
- There is an astonishing amount of support for every demonstrator;
- I can travel overseas to conventions - it's a worldwide company;
So, if you want to take your crafting to the next level, earn some money from it, and get to own beautiful crafting products (I truly believe they are the very best in the world) at a reduced rate then why not consider signing up as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. There's really never been a better time; there is a brilliant new totally customisable starter kit which only costs £99 for £130 worth of products + £45 worth of business products to help you get started.
Did I mention that I'm going to Germany with Stampin' Up! in November this year? You could be coming too - if you sign up as a demonstrator in the month of May then you can get the convention registration (worth £149) for FREE!
Please contact me to find out more about being a demonstrator, I'd love to share my experience with you.

I have been dying to use some of the products in the new Summer mini catalogue and so I couldn't wait to put together these lovely cards for my May class in Howden. Inspired by Father's Day I wanted to use some bright and funky colours as well as the gorgeous 'Up, Up and Away' stamp set.
On Saturday 26th May you can attend my card making class in Howden (click my Classes tab for details of location and times) and make these two cards and a gift card holder for Dad.
I've used rich razzleberry card stock as my main colour with old olive and pacific point as my accent colours. I've also used the brand new Framelits Labels collection die for the Big Shot to cut out the super layer in white on the left hand card and I've used the Two Tags Bigz die to cut out the old olive layer on the card on the right, this die was also used to make the gift card holder insert.
It should be an exciting class as each project uses dies, stamps, inks and markers and a bit of cutting too!

We'll be waving our flags this month in class as we make two lovely birthday cards using the Pennant builder punch. The colour schemes won't be red, white and blue though but the cards will be great for male and female birthdays and we'll even be making a little gift box to match the ladies card using the Pillow Box Big Shot die.
e-mail before Wednesday so I know how many kits to make up.
