Created to create

I am 100% unashamedly addicted to Stampin’ Up!, just in case you didn’t know. I believe this is a gift from God, I was created to create! Stampin’ Up is the perfect company we are like a global extended family, the ethos is about loving what we do and sharing what we love and they make this so easy for us with the fabulous products don’t you think?

My classes reflect this, it’s more than just customers coming to craft, it’s a gathering of friends, we have laughed together and on occasion cried together, all the while crafting together. Crafting has got me through some difficult times in life, it is such a good therapy. Often people come to class and admit they nearly cancelled for one reason or another and inevitably it lifts them and they leave uplifted… I believe it’s the crafting… although maybe it’s the cakes….

The card below is another we made at the painted with Love project class on Sunday, this one is for my husband…

The background is soft sky stamped using the marbled background stamp. The little hearts are second generation stamped in dapper denim (ink, stamp off on scrap and then stamp on project), the large striped ones are dapper denim and the accents in real red. I embellished with silver sequin trim. I’m loving all the products in this suite, I’ve been mixing and matching the stamp sets but if you only had one you could still create something similar.

The finals cards were inspired by Jan Clothier a demo from New Zealand. She made a gorgeous card using the soft sky blank fr. The tutti frutti Card blanks. I used the calypso coral one initially and then the lemon lime twist..

I coloured the enamel dots using the Stampin blends alcohol markers. Which do you prefer? I think I lean towards the calypso coral and night of navy…

Anyway, I’m off to put my feet up and chillax for the rest of the evening, enjoy whatever you’re doing.

Keep crafting!
