World Treasures

Good morning!
How was your weekend? I am here after a very busy weekend with my market on Saturday and a Stampin' Up! workshop yesterday! The workshop really was fun...there are a couple of pictures at the end of this post.

I have here a card that was totally inspired by the challenge at Colour Q this week. You'll see why shortly!

This stamp set is the one I won from Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine. It's called World Treasures. I inked up the stamp in all different colours using my markers before stamping it.

I did the same with the border. I decided to trim the image to add a little interest, then finished with lots of tiny gems from a nailart kit. The sentiment is Teeny Tiny Sentiments.

Cardstock - Whisper White, Summer Starfruit, Tempting Turquoise
Stamps - World Treasures, Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Inks (markers) - Summer Starfuit, Midnight Muse, Tempting Turquoise, Pacific Point

If you would like me to order any Stampin' Up! items from you, please do get in touch! I place an order once a month, which you could add yours to, or for information on joining a Stampers 6 group, please have a look here

Don't forget, the Sale-A-Bration promotion is only available until 22nd March, so to get your freebie with every £45 spend, contact me... don't miss out!


Ok, as promised, a couple of picks from the workshop yesterday...

Working on our projects...

With our finished calendars!

After we'd finished crafting, I did the draw for the prize I was offering. This candle...

I also gave a £5 voucher and a pencil wrapped with Designer Series Paper, and of course each guest got to keep the calendar she made!

If you would like to book a workshop, I live in the Bolton area and I would love to come to your home/workplace/craft group and demonstrate the fabulous products! And as the host, you get the chance to earn lots of freebies! Please do get in touch for more information!

Right, I have a large order to post, then to the gym, then more crafting!
Have a lovely Monday!
