JAI 27

It's good to be back in my craft space again, and what better way to get started than with  a challenge from the ladies at Just Add Ink. This week's challenge is a sketch which would be perfect for both cards and scrapbooking. I know it is only July but I chose a Christmas theme because I was just looking at the ESAD Christmas in July blog hop. There are heaps of links to that on my blog list so make sure you check it out.

Project Recipe
Cardstock: Real red and old olive
Ink: Versamark
Stamp set: Snow Swirled
Accessories: Gold embossing powder and heat gun, Holiday treasures dsp, eyelet border punch and real red grosgrain ribbon

Stamp set: Knobbly Gnomes (retired)
Cardstock: Soft suede, rose red, elegant eggplant and very vanilla
Ink: Black stazon and rose red stampin' write marker
Accessories: gold brads, boho blossoms punch, lots of tags die and the Big Shot

Two Step Stamping Promotion

Hi Everyone, I know it has been forever since I last posted. Please forgive me, I haven,t made any cards lately as I have been working on Matt's Nana and Pop's scrapbook album. They recently celebrated their 60th Wedding Anniversary and I am putting together an album of their family. I will share some photos of that next week hopefully.

But the reason for this post is to let you all know about the July special from Stampin' Up. This month SU! is giving a 20% discount on a number of two step stamp sets (including my favourite A Rose is a Rose) from both the main Catalogue and the Winter mini. If you are unfamiliar with this technique let me know and I can give you a quick demo, it really is one of the easiest techniques with give a big wow factor to your stamping.

Check out all the details at the Stampin' Up Customer website. Call or email me by the end of July to take advantage of these great specials.
