Stampin Up Party Pop Ups

Stampin Up have such a diverse range of products and this new die set is two dies which can be used inside a card to make the greeting pop out. However it is also a great topper to add to a card front or make as the main focal point.
I used one of the lovely paper stack papers Love blossoms 48 sheets of sumptuous colours and pattern ideal for backgrounds and then added the die cut in a white circle cut from Stamoin Up circle framelits. A couple of flower embellishments and a simple yet effective card.

Find all Stampin Up products on their official Stampin Up website and just use me Jane Allmark as your demonstrator of choice when ordering.

Stampin Up Rose Garden Thinlet Dies

One of the great things about crafting is that you can share it with young and old alike. I am truly blessed to have 6 wonderful grandchildren my eldest being 10 years old. She loves coming to stay with Nanny as we always do some crafting. Recently it was her mummy and daddy's wedding anniversary and she wanted to make a card for them. Using the lovely Stampin Up rose garden thinlets and with the minimal supervision from Nanny she made this wonderful card. The rose was die cut in blue for her daddy (my son) and the rose was coloured in rose red for her mummy (my daughter in law) the results were beautiful and I was so proud of her.

Stampin Up products are designed for all crafters from the most experience to beginners and even children.  They are of the highest quality and most of all are fun to use as the lovely photo demonstrates.  Needless to say her mummy and daddy were delighted.

To have a look at the great range of products by Stampin Up visit their official website and use me Jane Allmark as your demonstrator.

Have a lovely weekend.

Stampin Up Love Blossoms Paper Stack

Stampin Up has some absolutely gorgeous designer series paper and their paper stacks are 48 sheets of 6" x 6" pads full of really high quality papers designed to co-ordinate with all of the lovely colours in their ink pads. There are always odd little strips and bits of scraps which go into a scrap box but I try to use my scraps as often as possible to create the basis for other cards.

Today's I took a couple of scraps from the Love blossoms paper stack in crumb cake & rose red and with the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set a bit of sponging and a lovely sentiment this card was created

It just goes to show that with a few scraps and a little imagination anything is possible, nothing ever goes to waste. To see the lovely products on offer from Stampin Up just visit their official website and use me Jane Allmark as your demonstrator of choice.

Happy crafting.

Stampin Up Rose Garden thinlet die

Stampin Up Rose Garden thinlet die is such a lovely die set. Today I have been playing with the smaller rose die to make a clean and simple card with the lovely sentiment set Endless Birthday Wishes which as the name says can create and endless combination of birthday sentiments. This one is just plain happy birthday. The font on this set I absolutely adore. Both items can be purchased by going to the official Stampin Up website and when ordering use me Jane Allmark as your demonstrator.

 As the background I used the Love Blossoms paper stack which again compliments any stamp set used.

Happy Stampin

Stampin Up Beautiful Ride

This is one of my favourite stamp sets in the Stampin Up Spring/Summer catalogue as it has a VW beetle which I absolutely adore. Take a look back on my blog to see what I have done with this fab stamp.

However like always I try to make the most out of all the stamp sets I purchase so I used the couple stamp and created a sponged beach and sun background to put this lovely couple on. With the fab sentiment which is included in this set and the double hearts it has made a card ideal for valentines or to send to a loved one or sweetheart.

Stampin Up Rose Garden thinlet dies

There are always techniques and ideas to try with purchasing a new die set and the Stampin Up Rose Garden thinlet dies are an ideal set to use in many ways. This technique is using the die cut out to form a mask and then use various ink pad colours to sponge through the mask.

I have used the rose die cut off the leaves and just used the rose to sponge through twice making this lovely card.

The example today is a simple 2 tone heart card. This die you can bling up or tone down to your hearts (excuse the pun) desire

Stampin Up Beautiful Ride Masculine Card

Well as some of you will be aware I am a vw fan. I own a vw Up and I get the chance to go to many festivals in a 1959 split screen vw campervan called rusty. So when Stampin Up bought out this lovely stamp set Beautiful Ride it was a real joy. In the old classic VW beetle rallies and get togethers there are all sorts of colours and designs and one of the things that a lot of people do is slam (lower) their beetles. So this card is an example of a camo painted slammed beetle which most guys young and old will appreciate.

Life is a beautiful ride is such a great sentiment and this stamp set Beautiful Ride contains 21 stamps with everything from wedding, new home, Valentine's and lots of great sentiments. It is in Stampin Up new Spring/Summer catalogue, number 140738 priced at £15 so is a great price.

If you want to order this set then go to the Stampin Up website and use me Jane Allmark as your demonstrator of choice.

Have fun 💜

Stampin' Up Independent Demonstrator Jane Allmark, Farnham, Surrey.

Well 2016 has started with a bang and I have taken the leap and become a Stampin up Independent Demonstrator again. As many of you will know I was introduced to Stampin Up through my dear friend Lauren Huntley who was and is now again my up line. She has now moved several hundred miles away from Farnham but still pops down to see all her friends often.

Well to cut a long story short I have been a stamper for a few years now and have always had quite an eclectic mix of styles and designs using many products and suppliers along the way. I started with Stampin Up because their quality was so good whether it be ink pads, papers, or stamp sets and their dies well they are to die for lol. So it didn't take much to persuade me to become a demonstrator again. Well thre was one thing. A starter kit of £160 of stash ( absolutely anything from any of their current catalogues) for only £99. Yes basically £61 pounds worth of loveliness for free. Oh and they throw in £45 worth of catalogues order forms etc for free too. Sounds too good to be true? Not at all it is a fab way to buy Stampin Up products and my great big bundle arrived yesterday. 

Stampin Up is so good that you can become a demonstrator as a hobbiest or to start a lucrative business. I don't know yet which way I will go but if I get lots of orders then who know where it will take me.

So my journey begins and I hope you will follow me as I continue to post photos and ideas over the coming months of some of the lovely products from Stampin Up which I will be using.

And .... If you want to join me on my journey and become a demonstrator too and be part of my team then just get in contact If you just fancy having a nosey and finding out more about Stampin Up or want to order anything then just find me Jane Allmark on the demonstrator finder on their website. You can only buy Stampin Up products through a demonstrator which makes it a kind of fabulous exclusive club and yes their quality is second to none. Trust me I have tried many different products but have always been impressed with Stampin Up.

So follow my blog and see what I'm so excited about. Yippee skippee

Wedding card for archaeologists

I was asked to make a wedding card & the brief was they were a pair of archaeologists working on early man & were a bit hippy. So this is what I came up with

The flints were fun to do as I had to make them as realistic as possible. The heart was embossed coloured & gilded. Really enjoyed doing this one as it was very different & totally unique.
