Stamp It Up!!

Last Saturday was one of the hottest days we had last week but;

when I was given the opportunity to go along to a Stampin' Up Workshop, my lifeless body sprang into action.....lol! Well....I must admit the air conditioned room was a big draw card, but the prospect of having some stamping fun with 25-30 other ladies was also enticing.

Our two lovely, local Stampin' Up Demonstrators, Michelle Snape and Nicola Ryan did not let the heat daunt them...no; the girls were fired up to introduce us to the 'Summer Mini Catalogue' and the new fun stamps which have just come on the market...

I love Stampin' Up products; the company really does its homework to provide customers with the stamps they want and........ you can't go wrong with their system of creating cardstock, ink pads, embellishments and stamps to link together by colour and design. These cute cars were a response to customers asking for more stamps for men.......they won me over, I think they are great!

This ship is also in the same stamp set, which is called 'Sentimental Journey'. I was a bit worried about it at first....thought I might have a ship swinging around in mid air...but a bit of sponging with the 'Night of Navy' stamp pad, which matches the cardstock and I had a deep blue ocean for it to sail on. I added a few non-Stampin' Up stickers and glitter glue to finish it off and I was pleased with it...think my man would like it too.

Our other two cards in the session were "delicate" and as I already have the 'Stampin' Up' Butterfly punch in my collection, I was keen to try the stamp set as well and..... guess what.....yes....I love it too.....hello wish list!

My camera's battery died before I could photograph two other cards; one I made in the workshop and another I made in our "free time".

I had so much fun that I have booked in for next month's workshop.

If you live in the Manning Valley area and would like to hop in on this creative action, contact Michelle here; otherwise check out where your local Stampin' Up Demonstrator is, by going here.

  2. Gorgeous - I love Stampin' Up products, a friend gets their catalogue and I love to look through it. That ship one is just wonderful.

  3. Oooh, so nice! My daughter does Stampin' Up and makes such beautiful cards, too. I'm envious of the talent. I've made the attempt a few times, but I just don't have what it takes. Think I'll stick to fabric! ~karen

  6. wow Judy Thanks for the lovely feedback. I was blown away from the response that we had. I never imagined that we would meet so many ladies that love to stamp!
    I am really looking forward to our March workshop - at least it will be a bit cooler!

    best wishes

  7. Wow! The cards you created are amazing. I like the idea of adding more stamps with the men in mind. They like to receive cards too!
    Have a wonderful weekend.
