Hello to all my lovely customers!  Well, today is a big day for Stampin' Up! demonstrators and customers as customers can now order Stampin' Up! products online at any time of the day.  

If you order online through my website you will receive all the benefits that you would get if your demonstrator were placing the order, including hostess benefits for orders of $300 and over, however these will be called 'Stampin' Rewards'.  There is also the option to order without demonstrator contact, however customers who choose this option will be paying a premium merchandise price which is approximately 10% higher.  

Check out my new online shop or place an order here

Boy's cards are not really one of my strong points, I don't often do them unless I need to.  However, with two young sons (age 5 and 2) it is inevitable that I will be making more in the future!

The following cards have used the 'Need for Speed ' stamp set which I think is great as you can use it for both kids and adults.


The speckled look in the background is created with a Color Spritzer Tool and Stampin' Write Markers.

Used in these cards:

Stamp sets: Need for Speed, Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Cardstock:  Whisper White, Basic Grey, Midnight Muse, Real Red
Ink Pad:  Real Red, Midnight Muse, Staz On black
Markers: Real Red, Midnight Muse, Tempting Turquoise
Other accessories: Mini Brads, Word Window Punch, Color Spritzer Tool, Snail adhesive
