Yay I have promoted to Supervisor

Just had to share with you the gorgeous gift that my upline Petronela of Keep Stamping presented me with when I received my promotion to supervisor.

It is the most gorgeous little tea caddy, filled with lovely tea sachets, which she created using my very favourite papers from the Sale-a-Bration DSP pack and the new Tea Shoppe stamp set from the Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue.

I just love it. I think I will have to be making a few more of these sweet little caddies for gifts in the very near future.

Our Market Outing

 Hi everyone.  Sorry it has been so long between posts.  April has turned into such a busy month.

Not only did we have Easter and school holidays but we also celebrated my daughter's 12th birthday and I spent a lovely weekend away on a scrapbooking retreat at Mt Tamborine.

I have also been preparing for a couple of markets, classes, stamp club and would you believe two functions on one day - a craft fair in the morning and a cancer fundraising afternoon tea in the afternoon.

One of the markets we (my good friend and team member Heidi and I) attended was the ABC Markets held in Holland Park.

These are a mums and children's market and we had so much fun on the day.  We met a lot of lovely ladies.

Here are a few of the kids cards that I made up for the markets.  The Happy Birthday Monkey (shown at left) is based on a card that I cased from my wonderful upline Petronela of Keep Stamping.  I then decided that this design was great for using the stamp set Under the Big Top  and the beautiful bright colours in the Big Top Birthday designer series paper.

Stampers 6 Club

 This month in Stamp Club we were able to use some of the beautiful new products from the Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue.

Our first card was inspired by a card we had created in our last team meeting.  The bottom card is the one we created in our team meeting and the top one is the one created at stamp club.

Can you spot the differences?

As I did not have the Apothecary Art stamp set I decided to show the girls that you can still create a beautiful card by substituting what stamp sets you do have.  In this case we used the Creative Elements set to get the very cute flourish in the background.

We also created a mat for the framelit which is the black border around the small framelit piece.

Supplies used:  Cardstock - Whisper White, Basic Black, Riding Hood Read, DSP - Twitterpated, Labels Collection Framelits, Inkpads - Black and Riding Hood Red, Stamp Sets - Creative Elements, On Your Birthday, Itty Bits Shapes Punch Rhinestones

Our second card was created using the inking and tapping technique which was highlighted in our latest Stampin'Up! Demonstrator Magazine.  Thought we would give it a try and this is how the card turned out.  Everyone was very impressed with how easy it was to create such a stunning background.

Again we used lots of supplies from the new catalogue - isn't the pleated ribbon just gorgeous.

Supplies used:  Cardstock - Baja Breeze, Whisper White, Blushing Bride, Inkpads - Blushing Bride, Baja Breeze, Stamp Set - Parlor Prints Background Stamp and Teeny Tiny Sentiments, Punches - Blossom, Boho Blossoms, Word Window and Modern Label, Labels Collection Framelits, Blushing Bride pleated satin ribbon, Embossing Folders - Stripes and Square Lattice, Rhinestones, Twitterpated Designer Buttons
