Team Training and Hostess Gifts

A few weeks ago I held some on-line team training with my team members. Each one received a pack of goodies in the post, and we put them together using one of my tutorial videos. I love doing team events and have another scheduled for the end of October. What to join in? Check out my Joining FAQ’s

Stampin' Up! UK Team Training

We made 4 cute cards, with envelopes, and a gift box – all designed to be used as a Hostess Gift. So, I will be giving this note card set away to my next Hostess! Message me today for more information about hosting a party with me – I bring all the crafty goodies and inspiration, you bring your friends (and some cake!) and together we get to make something really fun! I am currently looking for Hostesses for September and October – maybe we could make a start on your Christmas cards!

What have I been up to?

It’s still all go here! I’m done (almost) with the wedding prep – just the dress to collect on Saturday! So, now we’re onto packing and cleaning! 17 days to go!

What have I been up to?

Well, we really are into full Wedding Countdown mode here! Just 38 days to go! I’m still working on Orders of Service and the Seating plan, but we are nearly there now. I took James last Friday to buy his Wedding Suit, he had such a great day. We walked into the suit shop, said “Black Suit Please” and the shop assistant appeared with the correct size! James couldn’t believe shopping could be that easy! I doubt it will ever happen again though

I’m super busy this week at the day job, looking forward to a week off next week, when I can get everything in order ready for the 8th August! I’m starting to get excited now. People keep asking me if I am nervous, I’m really not, I’m more nervous about falling over halfway down what is quite a long aisle than I am saying the big ‘I Do’! I’m sure that will change!

Right, that it for me today, I’m off to enjoy our one day of summer!

Speak to you all again next week

Watercolour Thoughts

Stampin' Up! UK Best Thoughts Watercolour

Over the last few weeks I’ve been playing with Stampin’ Up! inks and using them as watercolours. I love our colour palette, and the effects you can create when you add water. I will be the first to admit I am no expert watercolour artist, but I enjoy creating, I’m a card-maker, I only use stamps (my drawing is generally pretty rubbish), but I love the final result.

Stampin' Up! UK Best Thoughts WatercolourI used the brand new In-Colours to watercolour this lovely floral stamp. Its another one of the Hostess Exclusives for this years Annual Catalogue, and comes with a butterfly stamp and two lovely sentiments; ‘You’re in my thoughts’ and ‘The best is yet to come’.

This time I stamped in Momento Black ink, and added clear embossing powder. I prefer to heat emboss my images for watercolour, the raised edge helps me stay in the lines of the image, although I could have just stamped in Stazon and water-coloured without issue. I have been trying out a few different methods of water colouring, and I think this technique was my favourite, adding clean water to a section, like a singe leaf or petal, then dropping the colour in, and allowing it to move through the water.

Stampin' Up! UK Best Thoughts Hostess Code ClubOnce I had the whole image water-coloured I went back and added darker areas by using less water and more ink. The inks for this card are Watermelon Wonder and Cucumber Crush. I finished the card by added some ink splats, by loading my paintbrush with an ink and water mix and tapping the handle of the brush off of my index finger of my other hand, causing the ink to splatter the page. Lovely.

Don’t forget about my Code Club, add the code shown in the Top right hand corner of my blog to the Hostess Code box at check out to receive one of our brand new Hostess Stamp sets for FREE! This months stamp set is Floral Wings, which I used on a card last week.

Thanks for stopping by today, and I’ll see you again tomorrow!
