Lots of Lavender at Stamp-a-Stack

Here is another project from a recent Stamp-a-Stack Class where every card used items from the Spring/Summer Catalogue and Sale-a-Bration.

This project uses the fabulous Lots of Lavender Stamp Set and is very clean and simple.

Stampin' Up! Lots of Lavender with HIPPOFROG Designs

It takes full advantage of the the infill stamps and they help pull this project together really quickly.

I love the new Organza Ribbon as it is really versatile and looks gorgeous when coloured with Stampin’ Blends.  We used Rich Razzleberry here to co-ordinate with the stamping.

A touch of Wink of Stella on the flowers adds some sparkle for a finishing touch.

Don’t forget that Sale-A-Bration ends on 31st March so time is running out to get your hands on these amazing products.

Take a look at my Class Timetable for future planned classes.

Happy crafting

Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – SAB Lots of Lavender

At last week’s Card & Cuppa class I reached for one of my favourite stamp sets from SAB – Lots of Lavender.

However, we didn’t use the lavender stamps, but the gorgeous roses instead.

Stampin' Up! Lots of Lavender with HIPPOFROG Designs

For this soft and pretty card, I used Very Vanilla, Peekaboo Peach and Pear Pizzazz, with Smoky Slate for the outline and sentiment stamping.

The leaves create a pretty background with the lace doily effect mirrored with the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch. A length of Very Vanilla Baker’s Twine helps to pull the colours together.

There is also Wink of Stella on the flowers to give a bit of subtle sparkle.

Happy Mail Cards

If you’re in the UK and I have your address on my mailing list, one of these should have fallen into your hands.

Stampin' Up! SAB Lots of Lavender

It’s the card to accompany the new Spring/Summer Catalogue and SAB Brochure happy mail. The card uses the fabulous Lots of Lavender SAB Stamp Set and Picture Perfect Birthday for the sentiment.

Lots of Lavender is perfect for making a lot of cards really quickly.  It’s especially quick if you use the stamps designed to colour the images as I’ve done here.

For this project I stamped onto a Crumb Cake background in Early Espresso and used Sweet Sugarplum for the lavender.  Wild Wasabi for the leaves and Pool Party for the bow finished the colouring.

A strip of co-ordinating Sweet Sugarplum Ribbon from the Annual Catalogue and the punched sentiment help to tie the project together.

What is your favourite SAB item so far?

Saying Hello – Lots of Lavender

I hope you’ve had a fabulous Christmas and are looking forward to the New Year.

My December has been extremely busy helping with a local pantomime (oh yes it has!) that I’ve not had time to post things here.  As the pantomime finishes on New Year’s Day, I’ll hopefully be back to ‘normal’ a few days after that.

This will be perfect timing as New Year for Stampin’ Up! means a BRAND NEW Spring/Summer Catalogue and the annual Sale-a-Bration (SAB) offering.

I’m not allowed to show you online versions of the catalogues until they launch, but, I CAN show you projects using products from the new catalogues.

So here’s the first sneak peek…

Stampin' Up! SAB 2018 Lots of Lavender

It’s the Birthday card I made for my Niece who is now no longer a teenager.  As her Birthday is close to Christmas, I used the new SAB Lots of Lavender Stamp Set and bright colours.

The Stamp Set has a lovely lavender image I stamped in Basic Gray, it then uses fill-in stamps to colour the lavender, leaves and bow really quickly.

I’ve used Wisteria Wonder and Wild Wasabi and stamped them off beforehand to soften the images.

For a contrast and to brighten the project, I chose Berry Burst and used Cardstock, Washi Tape and Ribbon.  A touch of Wink of Stella added a little bit of sparkle to the lavender flowers.

Pop back soon for more sneak peeks from the new catalogues.
