Stamp n Sip with Queen Anne's Lace and Basket of Blooms

 Hello everyone

I do love Stamp n Sip.. yesterday we all met at The Pannier Pantry in Bideford.. because of new rules there were only 6 of us... but o it was such fun!  Lots of stamping, gluing and giggling.

There were 2 cards to make

The first used the Queen Anne's Lace set




Do you recognise the plant?.. it looks like our Cow Parsley, doesn't it.  Apparently its a close relation. Around here in Devon, we get lots of it that grows by the sides of the road - it looks so lovely especially when there is lots of it.

Here are the cards that everyone made - nice and simple eh!



The second card was made using the Basket of Blooms set and the coordinating small bloom punch.

  

Here are the cards everyone made... took a while longer, but well done ladies!




If you are interested in knowing more about Stamp n Sip, please take a look at the Crafty Classes tab above.

Stampin' Cut & Emboss machine and the Magnetic cutting plate are here

Hello everyone

At last the larger Stampin' Cut & Emboss machine and the separate Magnetic cutting plate are available to purchase from my online store

I've been using the new machine now for a few weeks and its is fab!
I've nicknamed her STACIE, 'cos Stampin' Cut & Emboss is a  bit of a mouthful ))

I love this new machine;
  • it has a lovely smooth action
  • the dies cut through card like a knife through butter 
  • the plates are all numbered and there are 'sandwich' instructions printed on plate 1
  • I can fold up the 'wings' which means it takes up less room on my desk..not something I thought I would really bother about.. but you know us crafters.. we always need more space don't we.

This Stampin' Cut & Emboss machine has a wide 6" (15.2 cm) platform that works with all Stampin’ Up! dies and embossing folders.

With the machine you will receive:

  • 1 Base Plate (Plate 1)
  • 1 Die Plate (Plate 2)
  • 2 Cutting Plates (Plate 3)
  • and 1 Specialty Plate (Plate 4)

   

It has:
  • ergonomic handles, one for easy carrying and the other to  wind the plates through
  • 2 fold-out solid platforms 
  • high grip feet to minimise sliding on surfaces
  • a compact footprint for easy storage and transport

Here is a short video with details too.




Separately, you can also purchase a Magnetic Cutting Plate

This is a thin, fully magnetic sheet with self-healing cutting surface. Magnetic Cutting Plate (Plate 5) holds dies securely in place, even nested dies. This slim, portable sheet replaces a Cutting Plate in the sandwich.

I haven't been able to try this out yet... but its bound to be brilliant.. and having a self-healing cutting mat is going to be a real boon!

Stampin' Up! Sweetest Time - card with border die


Hello everyone

Here is another card made using the Sweetest Time stamp set and die bundle.

SWEETEST TIME BUNDLE (ENGLISH)

For this card, I have used one of the lovely border dies... soooo pretty! and it was so easy to cut, using my Stampin' Cut and Emboss machine - now nicknamed STACiE ))

To make this card I used:

Card base:

Whisper White Thick card: 5-7/8" x 11-3/4", score at 5-7/8" fold and burnish

Card front:

Whisper White card: 5-1/2" x 5-1/2"
Shaded Spruce card: 5-5/8" x 5-5/8"
Shaded Spruce for die cutting border die: 5-5/8" x  3"
Gold foil to emboss and fussy cut background to border die: 5-5/8" x 3"
Whisper White card piece for sentiment
Ink: Shaded Spruce
Pearl basic jewels
Light Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends

TIPS: 
To create the gold foil background.  Place the die face down onto gold foil and emboss the design onto the foil card, then fussy cut the design so it fits behind the Shaded Spruce die cut piece.

The flames on the candles are Pearls coloured with Light Daffodol Delight Stampin' Blends.
