STUP - Stampissimo with Paula and Becky

Today I thought Id'd share a video with you. 
The video was released by Stampin' Up! UK this week, it shows you a little more of our Project Life by Stampin' Up! A whole range designed especially for us by the creator of Project Life - Becky Higgins.
The beauty of this range is that it is designed to co-ordinate with all our colour familes. But, let me stop here whilst you watch the video and see for yourself.
(Unfortunately, it has decided to take over most of my blog!)

Did you enjoy watching that?
If you'd like to see more of what we offer in this range you can browse the catalogue via the link in the left sidebar or visit my online store,click the link to the right or below.
Don't forget to let me see what you create with this great scrapbooking range.

NEW! Blendabilities


The wait is over! We've officially released one of our most exciting new products, Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers! These exclusive, alcohol-based marker sets come in a 3-pack of light, medium and dark shades (of the same colour), and provide your projects a more saturated look with blended colours. We recommend using Stampin' Up! Whisper White Cardstock with your Stampin' Up! Blendabilities, but choosing any one of our cardstocks will add a unique look to your project. And because traditional alcohol markers require a bit of training, we've developed a few videos to ensure that Blendabilities are easy-to-use for everyone!
Visit www.youtube.com/user/stampinupvideo to view them all, but I have the first one here for you.


What Sets Them Apart:
  • The Stampin' Up! rectangular barrel keeps your markers from rolling away!
  • Flat storage helps to maintain the life of each marker.
  • Each marker comes with a tip on each end: brush and fine.
  • Marker tips are made of nylon, which is superior to polyester which can fray.
  • Colour coded caps.
  • Stampin' Up! markers coordinate wonderfully with our cardstock, and can be used with transparent sheets
Available Products to customers starting July 1:
  • Cherry Cobbler (Item 130995 - 13,95 €/£10.95)
  • Coastal Cabana (Item 131000 - 13,95 €/£10.95)

Stampin' Stars Blog Hop

Today sees the arrival of our new annual catalogue - YIPPEE!!! Can you tell that I've been waiting?
To view online, click on the image to the left of this post.
If you've visited my blog before then you'll probably know that each time a new catalogue is released our team organise a Blog Hop to show you some projects using a variety of new products that are in the catalogue. 
You may have arrived here from Fiona's blog. In which case you'll have no doubt been spoilt with super projects already.
Whether you're already 'mid hop' or just starting, "Welcome!"
I've got 3 projects to show you today. With 4 more to follow.
The first project is not a card, it's one of those cute 4 oz coffee cups which I've decorated with an underwater theme using the new Sea Street stamp set. This cup is all shiny, it's a shame it doesn't show in the photo's. Hopefully I can get some better shots in daylight and replace these that aren't so sharp.

Where to start? First, I used our fab new alcohol pens - Blendabilities, to colour a piece of window sheet then stamped the fish on top with Staz-On. Next I stamped the octopus in new Blackberry Bliss onto the cup, the fish in Calypso Coral, the crab and lobster in real red. I stuck the window sheet onto the cup, this gave a watery effect.
Spot the lobster and the starfish above, on the sea bed.
I cut away the centre of the lid, stuck on some more window sheet and made a porthole in smoky slate card with silver brads. You can see through the 'water' into the cup.
Filled with fish and chip snacks. I'm sure they won't last long - I've eaten 3 already! 

Next is a card made with a couple of stamps from the Traveller stamp set. Blendabilities again to colour the flags, framed in new Lost Lagoon. The same blue is applied with a waterbrush under the ship.  


My final project for today has yet to have greetings added. For now I'm just enjoying the fresh look of the Moonlight DSP mat stack which has been mounted on Blackberry Bliss and added to Crumb Cake cardstock. 
It's a neverending card so there are 4 images which I feel showcase this lovely paper.



I do hope that you've enjoyed stopping by. If you'd like to 'Hop On' to view the super things that Louise has to show you then just click on the link below...
