Everyone is falling in love with this new colour 'Cherry Cobbler'. Here the Stampin' Up! white Craft ink looks stunning against the dark card. Of course you can add Dazzling Diamonds to give it a bit of sparkle too. This is a great way to use up all your non-Stampin Up card to make space for the wonderful new selecton of colours.
As always, time has run away with me and haven't had the time to make as much as I would like for the fair and tonight I have more candles to make. These have both been going down a storm at recent Workshops, everyone is so proud of what they have achieved.
This weekend is always a good opportunity for me to spend 2 days actually crafting at the table and demonstrating. When it is quieter I may try and put together my 250 Make & Takes for the Stampin' Up! Convention in 3 weeks time. I then have 90 beer mat (mini scrapbook album pages) swops to make and 10 other Card Candy swops.
Look forward to seeing you at the weekend if you are popping by.

This is the back of the bookmark, using a template on ILWS which I believe originated from Caz. I will shortly be updating to the 2011 calendar.
Now, if you are viewing this on Sunday morning, Angie and I will be attending the Stamp With Us weekend. The idea for covering this notebook came from our last Stamp With Us weekend back in March 2010. Here I have used the Bride DSP with Brocade Blue ink using a brayer. The shiny pattern embossed into the surface resists the ink and looks great in any colour. It is such a shame that the Bride, Groom and Bridesmaid DSP are retiring as they have been so popular. At the bottom I have wrapped a piece of Brocade Blue ribbon and used a greeting from Circle of Friendship which is also retiring..

Weekend over and camping gear packed down, David offered to drive my car home and let me take the Trike and trailer. OK so it was only 4 miles, but as we are going to Cornwall for the British Treffen soon, I needed to practice towing the trailer on the road.
Catch up again soon with some more crafting banter.

This then reminded me about the card I entered for a Stampin' Up! competition last summer. There were two categories, once for customers and one for demonstrators. Even though I didn't win, I was very pleased with my entry using the Tart & Tangy stamp set #111514.

- Here I have used Stampin' Ups! Butterfly punch and to make 3 butterflies in vellum card stock.
- I used Ruby Red ink and sponge with circular motion to colour vellum. Allow to dry.
- Punch 1/16" hole in centre of each butterfly and set aside.
- Don't laugh, but this was the easiest way to do the next bit ......Take clear crystal brad and attach to top of pointed lid of Crystal Effect bottle !! Gently squeeze Crystal Effect round rim of brad and then fill centre.
- Gently 'dip' brad into Stampin' Glitter Galaxy - Black to completely cover. Leave to dry completely.
- In the meantime, take a 10 x 10cm Ruby Red base card and mat 9.5 x 9.5cm layer of black.
- Take 9.1 x 9.1cm square of Ruby Red card stock and stamp flower stems from Garden Dream in Black ink. Sponge edges if you wish.
- Start by punching 2 of the largest Boho Blossom shapes from white card.
- Snip alternate petals, not quite to the centre.
- Snip the ones in between but not quite so far in.
- Punch 1/16" hole punch in centre of each one.
- Sponge pinky colour of your choice round edge of petals (take a close look at daisies !)
- Lay on a piece of kitchen paper and spritz gently to allow to shape slightly.
- Dab off any excess moisture - shouldn't be enough to make ink run.
- Place small piece of Snail tape runner in centre of one flower and stick together, slightly off centre so that petals alternate and with centre holes matching. Put yellow coloured brad from through centre (here I used Apricot Appeal but you could use So Saffron.
- Take piece of white card 9.1 x 9.1cm. Stamp with stems of your choice from Pocket Silhouettes and Autumn Days, random stamping between Always Artichoke and Old Olive.
- Pierce holes where you wish daisies to be on finished card and stick brad through to fasten.
- Take 10x10cm Always Artichoke base card and attach 9.5 x 9.5cm Old Olive card stock.
- Mat white stamped card with daisies and brads on to base card.
- Stamp greeting in Always Artichoke Ink.
- Put a mask of copy papier round brad and stipple with Black Staz On ink to give dimension to centre of daisy. (I used rough side of bath sponge).
I do hope you have enjoyed my contribution. Although we do not have the full range of punches that the USA & Canada have, I'm sure you will enjoy being 'wowed' at the rest of the blog hop.
