It’s a Celebration Pop Up Panel Card!

  Pop-Up Panel cards are all the rage at the moment, so I had to have a go and make one myself. I found a tutorial from a German demonstrator for the construction of the card.  I don’t speak a word of German – French, Spanish and Italian are my languages -but crafting is a universal language, isn’t it and her tutorial was easy enough to follow, you can find it here.… Read More »

Garden in Bloom for CC&S Design Challenge #174

I’ve really enjoyed being part of the CC&S team this month and I hope if you’re a regular viewer that you have enjoyed my creations.  This week, Caro had a sketch challenge for us.  I could have created a ton of cards with this combination as they make such a gorgeous colour combination.  Here they are:  Gorgeous, isn’t it?! It didn’t take me long to plump for Garden in Bloom… Read More »

Stampin’ Up Cheerful Christmas Case

I love looking at other people’s designs for ideas and inspiration and I saw this lovely card on Debbie Henderson’s blog (an SU demo from the US) a little while ago, which I thought would showcase a lovely technique for my Technique Tuesday class.  You can see Debbie’s card here – she even has instructions on how to create the card. I decided to change it up a little bit,… Read More »

Holiday Home Tealight Lantern complete with Instructions

I’ve had a great reaction to my tealight lantern that I posted recently. Many of you have requested the instructions so here goes… I was first inspired by a tealight lantern I saw by a Dutch SU demo Aida.  You can see her version on  her facebook page .  I knew I wanted to use the Holiday home bundle and unfortunately Aida’s measurements didn’t suit my design so I had to… Read More »

Christmas Cardmaking Classes – The Week Begins…

I’m kicking off a week of Cardmaking classes with my Mum and Me class this morning at 9.30am – and I couldn’t think of a better way to kick it off with a group of Mums and their little ones! We will spend the morning making 4 cards – similar to my Fast and Fabulous class but just with a little extra time to allow for a few cuddles, feeds… Read More »

Stampin Up Bright and Beautiful meets Northern Flurry

Once a month, I run a Fast and Fabulous class here at my craft room.  As the title suggests, the cards are both quick to make yet hopefully, both the creator and recipient will agree, fabulous at the same time. This was my personal  favourite from last night’s class and is so quick and easy to make, it would be perfect to mass produce for your own batch of Christmas… Read More »

Stampin’ Up Workshop Ideas with Bright and Beautiful

I had a table at an event about 10 days ago.  It was great fun, and while I knew the event would not be hugely busy, I knew those that were going would probably have children with them or even babes in arms so I wanted my ‘make and take’ to be beautiful, yet easy to accomplish while holding a child and a changing bag! I opted for Bright and Beautiful… Read More »

More team swaps…

As promised, here are more of our team swaps, this time from Alison Swann.  Ali came to my very first class and signed up on the spot.  She fell in love with the products and as a certain supermarket says, she thought why pay more?!  If you have ever considered saving on your Stampin Up purchases, have a read here. Ali is the ‘A’ in my ‘Aces and Diamonds’ team and… Read More »

Stampin’ Stars Seasonal Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stampin’ Stars Blog Hop.  This is the first team blog hop that I have taken part in and no pressure, yikes, being sandwiched between Pip from Queen Pip Cards and Emma from Coastal Crafter!!  If you’ve come from either of these two blogs, I’d safely bet you loved their projects. With no further ado, here is my first project.  The stamp set I have chosen to highlight… Read More »

Photopolymer stamp sets are transparent stamps that can be placed on Stampin’ Up!’s regular acrylic blocks, and the transparent nature of these sets makes it easier to line up what you are stamping without the need of a guide. To celebrate this big announcement, Stampin’ Up!… Read More »

Welcome to my new Blog!

Hello and Welcome to Stamp in Colour! I have just had my one year anniversary as a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.  I signed up, like a lot of people, to get great quality products at a discount, but before I knew it, my husband was doing up our garden office and I was holding monthly classes! It has been a great experience so far and it can only get better! So,… Read More »
