Cute Face Using Sprinkles Punch and 2016-18 In Colours.

This cute little face has been made using the brand new Sprinkles Punch from Stampin' Up! and showcases the 2016-2018 In Colours.

As soon as I spotted those curls I just had to make this little lady.

It's perfect for those cards when you just want to say Hi!

I can't get enough of the new In Colours too. They are really new and fresh, and a couple have an almost luminescence about them.

I hope you like my cute little lady.

Until next time....

Stampin' Up! 2016-17 Annual Catalogue Available 1st June 2016!

We're almost there - the brand new Stampin' Up! 2016-2017 Annual Catalogue will be available to the public on 1st June 2016.
As demonstrators we get to see the new catalogues a month or so before anyone else - and I know we can't wait to share all the gorgeous new products with you.
Here are the cards I made when I visited Stampin' Up! UK HQ last week. We were really lucky and got to play with these beautiful stamp sets - even before they have been released for sale.

If you don't have a demonstrator in that you currently purchase through and would like to receive your very own catalogue from me - completely free of charge - then please do get in touch with me. I'd love to send you one and share the crafty love!

VIP Day at Stampin' Up! UK Head Office | Cards For Keeps Charity Auction in aid of Coram

Not everyone looks forward to Friday 13th - but for me it was one of the best days I've spent since being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator.

Last Friday 13th May I got to attend the Stampin' Up! UK head office in High Wycombe as part of the VIP day for the winner and runners-up in the Cards For Keeps celebrity charity auction in aid of Coram.

Here is the awesome group of people I shared the fun-filled day with.

The auction raised over £5000 for children's charity Coram, with exclusive creations made by some of the UK's best celebrities. It was confirmed by Coram that the £5000 would go directly to ensuring 5 children were successfully adopted into new families - how wonderful that is!

Paula Gorrey and Kelly Francis took us under their crafty wings and spoiled us all rotten, with a super crafting session, a very tasty lunch, a red carpet, an abundance of wonderful prizes and an awesome goody bag. 

Frank Manoo and Chris from Demo Support even made an appearance at the craft table!

I also got to play with some of the brand new stamp sets that will be released in the new annual catalogue on 1st June.  

Here are my cute little creations.

I had the best day and met an awesome bunch of people who I look forward to keeping in touch with. 

Thank you Stampin' Up! UK and thank you to everyone who made a donation in the auction.

Thank you for stopping by today.

Runner Up in Stampin' Up! Cards For Keeps 2016 Competition

I am absolutely thrilled to let you all know that I have been selected as a runner-up in the Stampin' Up! Cards For Keeps 2016 charity auction demonstrator competition.

And here is my entry:

Stampin' Up! | a little something cute | UK Demonstrator

I wanted to convey a message of love, peace and change for the millions of children and young people who are helped every year by Coram.

Coram's vision is that every child has the best possible chance to live a fulfilling life. They support children and young people from their earliest days to independence, creating a change that lasts a lifetime. They help build their confidence; help them to develop skills; uphold their rights and find loving adoptive families for the most vulnerable.

I feel very honoured that the Stampin' Up! judges chose my rainbow creation to help highlight the importance of Coram's vital work - which they have been doing for 275 years!

With lots of love (and rainbows)

Punch Art Kitty

My inspiration for this project is my own little kitty cat whose name is Mackerel. He has, in fact got several names, but they are far too mushy for me to admit and tell you >.< He certainly is one very happy little cat <3

I have combined my love of Punch Art and my Kitty to create this cute little guy.

I've used a range of punches and the Friends & Flowers stamp set - which is so versatile - once you let loose with it the creativity can run wild. (Raaaar!)

The punches I've used are:

2 1/2" Circle Punch (semi circle for the body)
1 3/8" Circle Punch (semi circle for hind legs and full circle for head)
3/4" Circle Punch (semi circle for front paw)
Large Oval Punch (as shown above for the tail)
Festive Flower Builder Punch (for the ears)

And seeing as he's the star of the show, here's my little Mackerel <3

Thank you for visiting today. Until next time, Meow!! xx

Birthday Candles using Festive Flower Builder Punch

Don't you just love those little light-bulb (or in this case candle-flame) moments when you get that spark of creativity?

Here I've used the Festive Flower Builder Punch to create Birthday Candles that complement the It's My Party DSP perfectly. A 'match' made in heaven you might say.....?  Ok, I'll stick to the crafting >.<

I love finding new and innovative ways of using my punches. I've also used a classic punch technique to create the sentiment embellishment using my 1 3/8" circle punch, 1 3/4" circle punch and 2 3/8" scallop circle punch. 

Here is a simple pictorial on how to create the flames. The candle stems are 1/2" pieces of designer series paper.

Have a go with yours and see how easy these really are. I'd love to see your versions. 

Thank you for visiting today and I hope you enjoyed this cute little project.

Amy xx
