Here, I've used the gorgeous new Level 2 Hostess set, Asian Artistry. We just have this one for a few months, so consider hostessing a workshop OR gathering up orders to collect this set for FREE!!

Thank you to all who came by my stand at the Grand Wedding Show yesterday!  It was lovely to meet you and share in your enthusiasm for celebrating a big event in your lives.


I was thrilled to give a demonstration of three quick and affordable cards and projects for your consideration.  In case you missed it, here is the Easy No Template Triangle Box:


Stampin-up-Baroque-Motifs




All you need here is a rectangle of cardstock or printed paper and a few embellishments for the front (use the same stamps for your invitations and guest book to stretch those dollars further and to give your wedding stationery continuity).  Add a bit of ribbon to tie and you’re done!


Stampin-up-rich-razzleberry




This project works well with cardstock for extra sturdiness, but the printed paper has the double benefit of a splash of colour inside the box.  Love that!

I posted our usual guest artist spot on Sunday, so today I'll throw in a beautiful card I received last week from my team member in Nelson, Dee Sturgeon.

I LOVE this – beautiful colours, beautiful image, and striking layout.  I really love that Baja Breeze/Kraft colour combo (the same that was in those lovely textured papers last year).

I liked the idea here of the white card and the coloured insert for writing.  It gives support to the card as the Whisper White is not so sturdy for a card base.

Thanks, Dee, for your love and the beautiful creation!

Supplies Used:

Stamps: Medallion $39.95

Colours: Baja Breeze, Kraft

Other: Rhinestone Brads, Kraft Taffeta Ribbon, Silver Brads

Everyone loves this little bird from the For Everything stamp set in the Summer Mini.  He is a cutie!

This is a simple card, easily replicated by layering some Designer Paper and ribbon.  Here I've used the Pink Flamingo, one that is quite nice when used.  (It looks a bit loud in the catalogue).

Colours: Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, Cameo Coral, Summer Sun

Other: Scallop Circle Punch, 1 3/8 punch, 1 1/4 circle punch, Blender pens, Dazzling Diamonds glitter Tempting Turquoise grosgrain ribbon

Inspired by three different swaps from last year’s Stampin’ Up! convention, this little project is effective and goes together quickly.
