Stampin Up Peaceful Noel #simplestamping

Stamping doesn't need to be complicated or take a lot of supplies.  Sometimes keeping it simple can achieve so beautiful results. #simplestamping is making everyone aware that simple stamping can be just as fun as using every technique in the book.

This card uses just two inkpads Merry Merlot and Tranquil Tide and just one stamp set Peaceful Noel. The ribbon is an added extra from Jar of Love but could easily be replaced by using any little ribbon you may have.

Here is a step by step video tutorial to show you just how easy it is to make this card.

With Christmas just around the corner on December 5th  Stampin Up launches their Spring/Summer catalogue and Sale-a-bration brochure for demonstrators to order a full month before customers can. If you love Stampin Up products and have contemplated becoming a demonstrator then now really is a great time to join.  I would love you to join my team and become one of the Stampin Up family.

Using Shimmer Paint two ways for Christms with Stampin Up Varied Vases & Peaceful Noel

At Stampin Up Convention this year celebrating their 30th anniversary, there were a lot of demonstrations aimed at #simplestamping.   As crafters once we have been crafting for a while it is easy to create projects that are aimed at the avid crafter and those with many techniques under their belt.  So taking things back to simple stamping can be very rewarding and shows how everyone, even the newest stamper can create beautiful cards and projects using minimal supplies and techniques.

This card show one layer stamping, using two colours Merry Merlot and Tranquil Tide and two stamp sets Varied Vases and Peaceful Noel.  Step this one layer card up with some Shimmer Paint, I chose the copper, and two simple and different techniques to use the Shimmer Paint quickly and easily.

To show you how to create this card, I have added a step by step video tutorial which will show you from start to finish how to make this card and use the two different ways to add some copper shimmer to the vases and fir sprigs.

Good sized treat holder for several sweet treats using Stampin Up products

I had my 5 year old grandson round for the weekend and he wanted to make some teacher and friend gifts, so I thought about making a treat holder that was roomy enough to hold a couple of different sweets.

Now being 5 years old he wanted to make a grinch topper which I did for his friends after much researching and fiddling around.  However for his teachers I thought that Green & Blacks chocholate bars and a little candy cane would probably be more appropriate.

The good thing about the size of this treat holder is that it will hold a couple of treats easily so whatever your choice as long as it is not too big will probably fit.

Here is a step by step video tutorial to show you how I made these and you can make 4 from a 12" x 12" piece of dsp with enough over for a couple of cards, so pretty economical.

Jane Allmark UK Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator - Join My Team

I was recently asked about joining Stampin Up and becoming a demonstrator and joining my team and realised that is something I don't really promote or talk about.  At Christmas time people are quite often given money or are looking for ideas for gifts and this lady wanted money from family to join Stampin Up.  At the top of this blog there is a page labelled "join" which gives more information, but here's a little more about joining at this time of year.

With Christmas fast approaching I thought I would just let you know about a great Christmas present to give to yourself. Join Stampin Up as a Demonstrator and get a discount on the products you buy and take advantage of Sale-a-bration a month early and get free product.

A lot of Stampin Up Demonstrators like myself joined Stampin Up to get a discount on the stamp sets, dies, papers and other products and I have one have never looked back.

At the moment it is a very exciting time with Stampin Up.  This is their 30th anniversary and many demonstrators are currently at Convention, a big meet up and gathering of demonstrators across the world where they will get a look at the new Spring/Summer catalogue and Sale-a-bration products.

As a demonstrator we get to pre-order from 5th December which is a month earlier than customers can buy. For every £45 we spend from any of the current catalogues and preorder products, we can also order a free Sale-a-bration product (this could be a stamp set, die set, patterned paper, embellishments or other surprises which will be available in the Sale-a-bration brochure).

So if you've been thinking about becoming a demonstrator now really is a great time to join.  Want to know more then just go to the "Join" page at the top of this blog.

I would just like to say a big thank you to all my customers, subscribers, supporters and friends and if becoming a demonstrator is not for you, then apologies for this post. Crafting is my passion and I love sharing tips, ideas and projects with you all. Having been asked the question about joining my team I just wanted to answer it for those that didn't know or wanted to know how.
