Sketch Challenges

As it’s the start of the month I thought I’d bring something new to my blog - a sketch challenge!
Without further ado, here is the first sketch-

As you can see it’s basically very simple and you can keep it that way or dress it up as much as you want to!
Please feel free to join me in my challenges and leave a comment so that I can visit your blog and see how you’ve interpreted my sketch.
Here’s the card that I made from it-

I was inspired by one of Dawn McVey’s cards that I saw in a magazine.
I loved the simplicity of the design, but wanted to make more of the swirls on it so I shadow stamped them. ‘What’s that,’ you ask?
Well, I started off by stamping the swirl in Brocade Blue ink on the same colour card stock. I cleaned the stamp and then inked it up with VersaMark ink and stamped it ever so slightly to the side of the first image.
I sprinkled on some Heat & Stick powder and heated it with my Heat Tool, then sprinkled on some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, shook the excess off and set it with a blast of the Heat Tool once more.
Once the image has cooled down you can brush off the excess glitter that’s still clinging to the card with a paint or makeup brush.
The resulting image looks really sparkly and as if it’s floating on the surface!
As for the ribbon - I secured it to the card with Snail Adhesive, tied a bow separately and stuck it down with a Mini Glue Dot. That way I don’t get a twist in the ribbon and the bow lies nicely on top of it.

Stamps: Baroque Motifs & Seasonal Wishes
Paper: Brocade Blue & Whisper White
Ink: Brocade Blue & VersaMark
Accessories: Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Dimensionals, Heat & Stick Powder, Heat Tool, Paper Folder, Scallop Edge Punch, Silver Embossing Powder & Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon

Beautiful Background Stamps - For Free!

The Stampin' Up! promotion for the months of June and July are ideal for those thinking of hosting a workshop.

Between 1 June and 31 July 2009 hostesses who hold a workshop with sales of £250 will receive a FREE background stamp!
Take a look at them on page 56 of the catalogue. There are 7 background stamps from which to choose, so there's sure to be one that takes your fancy. They normally sell for £14.95, but you could have one for FREE!

Plus, for hosting a workshop with sales of £250 you get an Idea Book And Catalogue, a level 1 hostess stamp set and £25 to spend on Stampin' Up! goods for FREE!

However, if you get sales of £300, as one of my recent hostesses did, you'll get an Idea Book And Catalogue, a level 1 or 2 hostess stamp set and £35 to spend on those lovely Stampin' Up! goodies - all for FREE!

I'm taking bookings for workshops in July now, so if you'd like to take advantage of this offer contact me at Heartfelt.Stamping@hotmail.com

You don't have to host a workshop to gain these hostess benefits. You could gather orders from your friends to the same value and get your hands on those freebies.
You could share the hostess benefits with a friend. If you each gather orders, one could have the hostess stamp set, the other could have the background stamp and you can share £25 or £35 worth of goods between you, depending on whether you reach sales of £250 or £300.

Don't forget, I also have my own offer of a FREE Idea Book And Catalogue for first orders of £35 and over, which may help you to get some orders.

Even if you can't host or attend a workshop, send me an individual order and when I get sales of £250, I'll draw a name and that person will be the one who gets to choose a FREE background stamp when I place the order!

Workshops are great fun and I taylor them to your abilities and interests.
I will demonstrate some techniques or projects such as cards, scrapbook pages, gift boxes or altered items and then you and your guests get to make something and take it home.

Workshops are FREE, as a hostess all you need to provide are some refreshments and perhaps some easy snacks. If you have a smaller house you can host a workshop at my home - you just bring the nibbles!

Scrapbooking Papers Offer!

We seem to be between bouts of nice weather - let's hope the sun starts to shine again soon!

Stampin' Up! is offering 4 packs of doublesided Scrapbooking Paper for the price of 3 until the end of the month. That works out at £23.25 for 4 packs at £7.75 per pack.

The designs are the three new ones that are in the Mini Catalogue and the range that can be seen on page 93 of the Current Idea Book And Catalogue (while stock lasts).
If you don't have a Catalogue you can see the on-line version of the main one plus the Mini one if you click on the pictures of the catalogues on the side bar to the right.

If you like the idea of becoming an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator with me, there is also an offer to make a start with a Scrapbooking Kit as well.

If you're interested in either of these offers you'll need to get your skates on as they both end on Sunday, 31st May.

For more details, please e-mail me at Heartfelt.Stamping@hotmail.com

Sweet Dreams

As promised, here's the layout I did using the same sketch as for yesterday's card. I think the Always Artichoke card stock makes the Pretty In Pink look even more delicate.

As you can see I've turned it on its side. This is a 6" layout, but it could easily be scaled up to a 12" layout if you prefer.

In case you're wondering where I used the White Gel Pen - I used it to draw 'thread' on the buttons!

Stamps: Sanded

Paper: Always Artichoke, Pretty In Pink, Hostess Patterns Pack DSP & Basic Grey

Ink: Always Artichoke

Accessories: Pretty In Pink Taffeta Ribbon, Soft Subtles Buttons, White Gel Pen, Circle Ice Rhinestone Brads, Snail Adhesive, Dimensionals & Boho Blossoms Punch
