(Sunshine Stamping - Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Becki Ritson). Hello! If you subscribe to my mailing list, you'll have heard about the amazing offer that Stampin' Up! is running throughout November. You can get a mahoosive twenty-five percent off selected stamp sets. That's worth shouting about, I think - don't you? Here they all are....

Oh my! Even the Baby Bear stamp set is 25% off at the moment! I don't have that one yet, but it has been tugging at my heartstrings for ages as it's just so gorgeous. It really does end up looking like a vintage photo once you've stamped all three layers and, because it's a Photopolymer stamp set, that is just SO easy to do. 

There's more...

Stampin' Up! Stitched Shapes Framelits 25% Off

All these stamp sets work beautifully with the new Stitched Shapes Framelits that are coming out in the 2017 Annual Catalogue. As a special treat from Stampin' Up! you can order them at the moment - they've been going like hot cakes so you may find they'll go on back order, but they'll be sent to you as soon as more arrive in the warehouse.

We've been told that the item number for these dies will be switched off on Monday, but so long as you order them before then you WILL be able to get your hands on them. Once the item number is switched off, we don't know when it will be switched on again. It might not be until the new catalogue comes next year - eeek!! So hop across to my Online Shop and order yours NOW before it's too late. If you CLICK HERE it'll take you straight to the Stitched Shapes dies. Don't forget to select me as your Demonstrator, and use the Hostess Code if you want to get a little thank you gift from me. 

Apologies for the lack of MakeOver and Sketch posts in the last week or so - we've been running round like headless chickens getting my old house ready to rent out again (we have a new tenant - yay!!!) and time has kind of run away from me. 

I hope you're having a fantastic week. Back soon... xx




Sat 12 Nov 2016

Hello! How's your week been? I'm still working out how best to write up my colour challenges for you. This week, I'm going to try leading with the card I've made, and following up with the colour combination itself - do let me know what you think. Is it better this way round, or do you prefer having the colour combination picture first?

Sunshine Stamping Colour Challenge 6 Card

I do love this stamp set, and I thought I'd have a play with some watercolouring. This was done with our Stampin' Up! inkpads and an Aqua Painter, using our Watercolour Paper. What do you think? I'm still learning with my watercolouring, but I'm pleased with this one. I was also impressed that the new Stitched Shapes framelits were able to cut so crisply through the watercolour paper, as it's quite a bit thicker than our normal cardstock. I love this stitched effect - really adds a finishing touch.

The message is a simple one. It's been impossible to get away from politics this week, what with a certain election "across the pond", so for this Colour Challenge I wanted to focus on something positive and beautiful. Tomorrow is Remembrance Sunday, and people all across the country have been wearing their poppies as a mark of respect for all those who lost their lives so that we might enjoy ours. 

Here's the photo I based this card on, and the one that forms this week's Colour Challenge. It had to be poppies this week, didn't it?

Sunshine Stamping Colour Challenge No 6

As always, I'd love to see what you come up with using this colour combination. If you're feeling inspired, why not add a picture of your card in the comments, or send one to me in an email. Let me know what you think of these Colour Challenges - I'd love to know what you think!

Thanks for dropping in. See you soon... xx
