Last Thursday evening I ran a Stamp-A-Stack class. The ladies coming had said that they wanted to make 9 cards aimed at mainly men / boys and the above cards are the nine cards that we made. Sorry about the bad pictures again - bad light around today matched with the fact that I couldn't use my tripod! Must get that sorted out!
All the patterned paper, card, ribbon, buttons and adhesive die cuts were all from the Rock Star Card Elements kit from Stampin' Up! and the other bits used were some circle punches, white and blue doodling pens and the co-ordinating SU Starring You stamp set.
I love the Elements kits! Not only are the blues and greens of this kit right up my street, they also have a set which is all pink, purple and flowery. The kits come with everything that you need to make 10 cards and three of the cards above are the examples that come with a "how to" sheet in the kit.
At the bargain price of just £12.50 per kit, I think they are both great value and are ideal for quick cards when you are running out the door.
I just want to let everyone know that you don't have to order at a party to get the Stampin' Up! products that you like! Contact me at any time and I can have your order delivered directly to you from Stampin' Up! So, if you fancy one of the Elements Kits or anything else, then email me and I'll get it organised for you.
On other topics.....Hubby and I ventured off to Oxford this weekend and had a lovely time. I think we both just needed to get away from everything and just do "whatever we want to do, whenever we want to do it!" If we want to get someone else to cook dinner and eat it in bed, we could do, same for breakfast, afternoon drinking and relaxing, visiting the spa - it was pure bliss! Reminded us of why we fell in love in the first place and we toasted our 17 years together (oh blimey, that makes me feel old!!!!!!!)
Lots and lots to share with you this week - exciting offers and news from Stampin' Up! and a few more cards etc to share with you too so will be trying very hard to update more regularly!
