Stampers 6 Club
My Stampers 6 Club will be running from 15th October 2010 with the last month being 15 March 2011. The benefits of this Club are:-
1. Free new catalogue on October 1st.
2. It will also be combined with my Techniques Club. This is a 6 month club in which you will receive a new technique of stamping each month for 6 months, fully illustrated so that you can try it at home.
3. A jam packed goody bag on your 3rd month which will also be December, so a Christmas Present from me for you.
4. A chance of getting new stash from the new catalogue by spreading out the cost over 6 months.
5. January is normally Saleabration month, so you will also be able to get your free stamp sets with the appropriate spend.
6. During your hostess month, you will receive a free Hostess Benefit of your choice from Level 1 and £15 of free stash from the catalogue.
And all you need to do is commit yourself to spending £25 per month over 6 months. If you were to host a workshop you would normally have to pay 5% postage for Stampin Up to deliver on top of your stash order. I pay this when you are a member of my club. All you pay is the cost of the postage to you each month, from months 2-6 and £3.00 postage for the first month, plus any PayPal fees incurred. You can also pay via cheque or bank transfer.
I am only running the one club, I have 2 places already taken so if you would like a place, please contact me. LindaLLoyd@gmx.net
Today I am showing you the 2 cards I made for my sons 14th Birthday, the above one was really easy to make, it was just a sheet of Patterned Paper from the Green Stack from DCWV, this is about a year old now so not sure if you can get it anymore.... and then I cut out Happy Birthday using my Cricut Expression..... easy peasy.....
This next card uses an image from The Greetings Farm, I love their images and they are a joy to colour in, I coloured it in using copic markers, the stars I cut out using my Spellbinders Nestabilities Stars.... and the circles were Nestie Circles... Happy Birthday sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.
This card I made for my Step Dad's 75th birthday.... we went out for a lovely meal on the Sunday, and had a great family time at their house afterwards.... I made the background by stamping a Papertrey Ink background stamp onto some brown distressed paper, I used a script background stamp. I then stamped another background stamp of squares onto the distressed red cardstock. I used Kraft Cardstock to coordinate with the card and punched out a star using some distressed blue cardstock. The Happy Birthday sentiment is also from Papertrey Ink.
This next card I made for someone in our Church's 30th birthday, I dont really know what he is into so decided that you cannot go wrong with stars. I used a retired kit from Stampin Up to make this card... I love the brightness of the card after the more muted colours of my Step Dad's card.
My daughter asked me if I could make a card for a friend of hers who was having a son, so I love this stamp and it had never seen ink, so I made this for her. I used the retired Bashful Blue Patterned Paper from Stampin Up, the image is from Lili of the Valley Stamps.
So this card was made using colours that I would not normally use, it was really outside of the box for me, but I do really really like it..... Butterfly is Papertrey Ink, as are the buttons and cardstock. The Patterned Paper is Basic Grey.
The card above I made for my daughters 16th birthday from all her friends at church, it was also the card I made for our Papertrey Ink Day last month, where I got together with some really lovely ladies to make lots of Papertrey Ink stuff..... it was a brilliant day, hope we can do it again sometime.
This card I made from us, her family, for her birthday, she was very honoured as I used some of my favourite flowers on her card, the Patterned Paper was from a scrapbook kit and is such a gorgeous vibrant paper. The image I got from the Ally Pally in April as is by Mo, from Mo's Digital Pencil....
These are the cards I made to send out with a couple of friends Papertrey Ink products that they ordered via me. We sometimes group together because it is cheaper on postage and customs charges... I used the Papertrey Ink stamps, ribbon, Cardstock and Patterned Paper for this card, not forgetting the buttons too, but I did use Stampin Up Little Tag Punch and Stamp set for the little tags. How sweet are they....
So here are the last 2 of the Church Order Cards I have, I will try and be better organised next month and get them out of the way quickly, I didn't post much this month so have had photos building up... again Papertrey Ink Ribbon, they are such lush colours and polka dot ribbon is my favourite.
And more chipboard on this card, it matched the Patterned Paper wonderfully (dont know who made it) but the ribbon is Papertrey Ink, and the little circles were die cut using a Papertrey Ink Die, these are really wonderful. Right need to get my nose to the grindstone, have a great day all xx
Anyway, today is nearly the last of last months Church Order, I have some other photos uploaded and ready to go for the following week, so they will be slightly different. I still cannot show you the samples I have made using the new product from the new Stampin Up Catalogue tho, you will have to wait until Friday for those. This card is slightly different to some of the others, I think the colours are really pretty, I have used Stampin Up Pretty in Pink for the card and the Large Bird Punch for the bird and leaf, how awesome is this.... look out for some new punches from the new catalogue sometime next month when I manage to get them into my greasy little mitts.... lol
I buy a scrapbook kit from the US which is monthly and arrives each month, I use a lot of the papers in that for my cards, hence can never remember what they are called.... sorry
And yet again, this card is different to the ones I have been showing to you lately. I do sit and draw 12 different templates and make the cards according to them, so not sure how they often look similar.... The ribbon on this card is from Papertrey Ink, as are the Sentiment and image, how lush is the colour of the ribbon.... absolutely love it!!
Another card today from my Church order, I am thinking that they are starting to look a bit samey with the design, so when I start the next lot next week I am going to have to try and change them.... I have some ideas..... I love that Chipboard SMILE. I used Papertrey Ink stamps for this card, not sure who the papers are.....
I used Soft Suede Spotted Grosgrain Ribbon for this card from Stampin Up and Matching Soft Suede Cardstock.... the little card is from a die from Papertrey Ink, as is the stamp image on it. The Sentiment is from Our Daily Bread Designs.
And here is the inside of it, all nice and matching.
This is another Church Order card, I am loving these vibrant colours and the flowers are made out of felt. The cardstock is Stampin Up Chocolate Chip and Old Olive.
And as usual here is the matching inside. I do tend to make all my insides to match, I just dont always remember to take a photograph of them.
This months challenges were varied. This is the sketch challenge, we were given this sketch and had to make a card using it.....
I did turn the sketch around to make this card. I used the Sweet Pea Paper Stack, Old Olive Satin Ribbon and the Hello Again Stamp Set. The Cardstock is So Saffron.
The next challenge was to make a card using a tone on tone. This means to use one colour but 2 tones of the colour, so, light blue and dark blue, or in my case, light purple, dark purple....
So here are a few cards I have made recently, this one was for my Church Order.... I used Stampin Up Soft Suede, Bella Bleu Papers, Melon Mambo Ribbon and the background writing is the Stampin Up En Francais Background Stamp, so glad they are not retiring this one.
The next one was for a birthday, the image is from Whiff of Joy Stamps, the paper is I think, Cosmo Cricket, the cardstock is Stampin Up Real Red and the Ribbon is from Papertrey Ink, a real mixture on this one. The image is coloured in using copic markers.
This next card was for Father's Day, have I already shown this.... not sure, but incase I haven't here it is. Stamp Set is Papertrey Ink, as are the Cloud die cuts, the background stamp is also from Papertrey Ink, the Cardstock is Stampin Up Real Red and the Ribbon is also Stampin Up Real Red Striped Grosgrain which IS retiring at the end of this month. If you would like to see the current Stampin Up retiring list, some items are more than 50% off.... just drop me an email at LindaLloyd@gmx.net.
Scroll down a post if you are interested in buying from Stampin' Up!s Last Chance List. I am offering free postage if you spend more than £40..... these items are only around until end of September and then you can never buy them again.
Have a great day, take care
Have a great evening all xx
