Just thought I would share my team with you all

Morning, I thought I would share a picture of my immediate team that I work with, We are all Independent Stampin' up! demonstrators. We are in a bigger team with Natalie O'shea where she has 203 demo's under her. and we 5 are a little branch off from her.

We went to Basinstoke on Thursday for the launch of SALE-A-Bration which starts January 6th.. How it works is for every £45 you spend on Stampim' Up! products you get to pick a free item from the Sale-a-bration catalogue and there are some great products in there, I will post some projects soon, but you will have to wait till Jan 6th to see the catalogue.

So who is who ....Charry who is 2nd from the left is immediately under Natalie and my upline, Rachael (1st left) and myself are under Charry and then Grace next to me and Fiona come under my umbrella (my down lines). They are both super ladies and I love having them in my team.

Charry is a superb upline and we are a great but small ( at this time) team.

There will be some fantastic deals on joining coming up in Jan with lots of free goodies and a kit with extras. its just £99 to join and that gives you a £130 kit with product of your choice plus some more freebies. So contact me if you would like to join and be a member of our team.

Everything ELeanor

This set along with Kinda Eclectic is one of my go to's. You can make some fabulous cards and backgrounds with this set.  I saw a card similar to this on pinterest and this is my version.

Using A6 whisper white card base.

1. Stamp the foliage background stamp From the Everything Eleanor in Olive Green onto a Matt of Whisper white cards took.

2. Using an embossing folder (sorry the script one I used is now retired) stagger the plates on ypur bigshot or machine of choice to enable a strip of the embossing only to go across the centre of the whisper white stamped Matt.

3. Stamp a greeting in the place of your choice, I like top or bottom right.

4. Wrap old olive bakers twine twice Around the card and fasten at the back.

5. Matt the whisper white stamped card onto Melon mambo card stock and add to the front of the card base.

5. Using the large flower from Everything Eleanor stamp 3 images in melon mambo ink  and 1 in old olive.

6. Cut out all 4 of the images. Leaving the 1st pink one full the 2nd removing 1 leaf, 3rd removing 3 leaves.

7. Cut the old olive image in to half to use a leaves, decoupage the flower and add to the stamped and embossed Matt. ( this one does not show the green leaves - but it looks great with them on)

8. Finally add either Rhinestones or candy dots in melon mambo to the foliage.

I hope you like this card as much as I do you can make lots of different versions and colour ways for this card using this lovely set.

Love this set - Kinda Eclectic

Using Whisper white card stock A6 in size.

1. I lightly skimmed across the inside of Modern Mosaic embossing folder with Crumb cake ink and laid the front side of the card inside and randomly pressed to give the background image a distressed look.

2. Stamp the Sun blast in Hello Honey

3. Stamp the leaves in Old Olive from the Kinda Eclectic set using 1st 2nd and 3rd generation stamping.

4. Using Pumpkin pie stamp randomly the small butterfly

5. using a strip of DSP in Blackberry bliss cutting either at an angle or a banner style to your preference

6. Add some linen thread

7. stamp a sentiment onto Kraft card and decorate either....
      a) Stamp & Punch out large butterfly and add to sentiment
      b) stamp the butterfly image onto Whisper White and punch the butterfly out of the Kraft card  with the sentiment on and then lay over the butterfly,

8.  Raise with 3-D dimensionals.

9. Punch out and add to card and finish with some rhinestones to complete the look.
