Perhaps, how to clean your stamps isn’t the most exciting blog post, but bear with me it’s important !
I hope you will forgive me getting on my soap box for a moment to say, please, please, please don’t use cheap wet wipes to clean your stamps, most of them have alcohol or fragrance in them and they can damage your stamps. If you prefer to use them make sure you get ones that are alcohol free. If you use StazOn you will need a special cleaner for them.
The Stampin’ Scrub and a small bottle of mist is just £16.75, which I think is well worth it, and I have a video today to show you all about the different types of ink and how to clean your stamps and the scrub.
I hope you enjoy it, oh and just so you know, it’s a 2 minute tip that goes over by 5 minutes……oops !
I’m off to Manchester bright and early tomorrow, 5am start……..but I have scheduled some posts for you whilst I’m away. If you want to keep up with the action whilst it’s happening like my Facebook Page Click Here and you will get regular updates!
47 years is pretty impressive me thinks! I made this card a few weeks ago, It has elements of gold on it and Baked Brown Sugar, I love the vintage feel of it, the distressing of the co-ordinations card and crochet trim helps with that. You will be seeing more of the Beautifully Baroque stamp in the centre, it’s one of my favourites!
I’m really pleased to have a supply list for you, the links below go straight to my online store, hopefully that will make things easier for you.
It seems that the UK needs to get ready for snow…….every weather report I have seen for the last few days says snow ! Don’t they know we have to travel to Manchester on Thursday for the Stampin’ Up! European Convention and snow needs to wait until we have all arrived safely……..!
In honour of all this talk of Snow I have a very cute snowman for you, he’s made from the Snowday set. I bought this in clear mount……yes really don’t gasp, I do have some clear mount stamps and they work perfectly to get him all lined up!
I’ve been working late today, so just going to get a cuppa, curl up on the sofa, watching I’m a celebrity…….Ant and Dec are awesome !
Yes you did read that correctly today is my 6th Stampin’ Up! birthday ! Wow I can’t believe it, the time has flown by, I have made some amazing friends, built the most awesome team, get to work with the best crafting products available every single day and do what I love, and share what I do with you all.
Thank you from the very bottom of my heart for the part that you play in my business!
I think I need to make a cake, a birthday needs a cake doesn’t it……once my UPS man has delivered my orders I shall scurry off to the supermarket and get baking !
So in honour of my birthday I shall share a birthday card with you today, it’s nice to have a rest form the Christmas stuff. I have used my Borders Plate on the Simply Scored board and the wonderful Summer Silhouettes stamp set. Simple and elegant!
I need to finish packing for my Extreme Christmas cards class tomorrow and then get baking !
Morning, I am so sorry for abandoning you yesterday…….I had a bit of a run in with a wall on Tuesday and it has hampered my working abilities somewhat! I was rushing to answer the phone and at speed smacked my right foot into the door jamb, my little toe went one way and my foot the other. I have learnt that it’s very difficult to work when your foot is elevated with an ice pack on it!
I had lots of lovely comments on my Facebook page, but this one really made me laugh, because it’s so true………
You, resting???!! It must be a serious injury! or is it the Amanda version of resting which involves you intending to rest but still spending the whole day hobbling around trying to get the 101 things on your to do list done anyway?!
Thanks Helen ! You know me so well!
So today’s update is the toe and about 2 inches above and below is a very fetching Elegant Eggplant colour with elements of Crushed Curry and Wild Wasabi, Yuck ! It’s the Stampin’ Up! European Convention in Manchester next week and this is going to seriously hamper my plans for dancing the night away at the 25th Anniversary party.
Let’s get back to crafting shall we, 2 more videos for you today, both on the same card but one giving more details of the use of Blender Pens.
So first up Blender pens
And then a quick Christmas card, now if you have ever crafted with me and made a mistake I always say that Stampin’ Up! card stock is very special it has 2 sides, the first side and then the emergency side! Well in this video I prove that I also use the emergency side……….
Zoe, Lilian and Roz are super excited to have won my prize draw and the goodies are on their way! I’ll be back soon with some more projects for you.
