Who's for chocolate crumbs............

Hi guys,

Todays issue from Stampin UP Uk Demonstrator Lisa Cornwall.

Firstly sorry I did not post yesterday, but unfortunately I woke to up a message from someone that can be called nothing short of nasty.  It kind of upset me and I did not want that to come through in my post.  Anyway today the sun is shining so here goes:

IN TODAYS POST:

  • Facebook question
  • Todays card - Chocolate Crumb


Facebook Question

I don't know about you but I love the fact that I can order from Stampin UP Uk 24/7 every week of the year.  I also love the huge variety of colours in their range.  Did you know that you can shop with me 24/7 every week of the year.  Simply click on the Shop with me button in the sidebar.

I am a member of lots of groups on Facebook and one of the questions that keeps being asked is do you match your papers to your colours or your colours to your papers?

I am lucky enough that I can do either.

Why?

Because Stampin Up and Crunchie Crafts make it easy.  Stampin Up! have everything co-ordinated.  They take the hassle out of choosing my favourite paper, but using colours I don't particularly like, or using my favourite colours and trying to match to a paper stack.

Its so simple.


And talking of papers, did you know that becoming a member of Stampin UP! this month gives you six months free of designer series papers.  Yes, one pack per month. Thats £9.95 worth of pretty papers of your choice free every month for six months.  Awesome.

How do you get it?

Simple ......... join my team, either as a hobby demonstrator who just wants to purchase craft products for themselves, or as demonstrator that wants to do a bit more.  There is no pressure, the choice is entirely yours.  It costs £99 and you get £130 of goods.  Thats £31 free plus the free papers a total amount of £189.70 for just £99.  Awesome.

CHOCOLATE CRUMB

I am currently dieting........... I would like to loose a few pounds so that my new dresses for Convention look awesome and also so that my man is proud of me.

With that thought in mind it is never a good time to start using colours like Chocolate Chip and Crumb Cake.  Ooooh the thoughts of all that yumminess.

Anyway I managed to get through it ........... and didn't eat anything I shouldn't but I am so loving the result.

I pulled out one of my new favourites for this card - the beautiful bunch stamp set and matching punch.  I love this flower its just too cute.

I cut an A4 sheet in half (Portrait) and folded to give my card base.  Next I cut a matting layer 1/4" smaller.  I distressed the edge of this layer with chocolate chip ink on a sponge.

Next I stamped the crumb cake cardstock all over with Chocolate chip ink using the flower from the set.

I then stamped one more and punched out, before curving it using my bone folder to give some dimension.





Lastly I added a basic jewel to the middle of the flower and used a dimensional to pop it on the card,
before adding the Thank You sentiment which is from the Something to Say stamp set.  This has been punched out using the modern label punch.  Again the edge of the sentiment has been sponged to make it pop.

I hope you love this card and set as much as I do.

Take care and thanks for stopping by.
