So for a £200 sales party you will receive a handmade gift from me for hosting, £30 to spend on any products you like from the catalogue and the Good Greetings stamp set too! All this and a fun evening of craft and creating with your friends. There really hasn't been a better time to host a Stampin' Up! party. I have availability through September and October, so get in touch today to book your date: email@example.com or 01983 609249.
If you do not live locally to me (on the Isle of Wight) I would be happy to set up a Facebook online crafty party. If you pop an email over to me we can have a chat about how to get started with hosting an online social.

And to celebrate the launch of the new Autumn Winter catalogue I wanted to share this fun Block Stepper Card I created for my August Card Class.
As you've probably realised I am completely addicted to my Blendabilities and colouring my stamped images. I'm by no means an expert when it comes to colouring but I enjoy experimenting with the colours to see what effects I can come up with. So when I opened my copy of the new catalogue you can imagine my delight when I came across the Partridge & Pears stamp set. I love colouring all the elements of this image.
This card was made using a Cherry Cobbler card base measuring 12" x 4-1/2" (scored at 1-1/2" intervals in both directions). I followed these instructions created by the lovely Eveline as to how to cut and fold the card base.
I then decorated with 1-1/4" squares of Champagne Glimmer Paper and 1-1/8" squares of Trim the Tree Designer Series Paper (a fantastic little paper stack with 48 sheets of 11.4 x 16.5cm Christmas paper for the bargain price of £6.25).
The image was then stamped in Memento Black ink and coloured with my Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler and Smokey Slate Blendabilities.
The Merry Christmas is stamped using the fab Good Greetings stamp set (receive free for hosting a party don't forget!)
