New Stampin’ Up Demonstrator

Now you might have already seen the subtle changes to my blog recently….but I would like to officially announce….
I’m now an Independent Stampin’ Up Demonstrator!!
….and I’m sooo excited *girly hand claps*.   So check out my side bar to peruse the catalogue…but especially to review the March Frenzy offers!! 
(Here’s a sneak peak at my new samples.)
I have been working on some samples and making plans  for the last couple of weeks so I’ll be sharing those over the next few days.
This first card I’m sharing is made using a tutorial found on Lady& the Stamp.  I’ve adapted it to an A5 size so email me for dimensions if you want to recreate it. It’s a Box Arm Card and I think this is quite effective.
I’ve entered this in the ‘Flowers’ challenge over at Little Claires.
It’s a three panel card where the front panels stand out and prop the back panel up.   I’ve used the dainty flower stamp from the ‘Simply Said’ stamp set and the “Just for you” from the Afterthoughts set, both stamped in Pumpkin Pie ink.  The backing paper is from a recent Stampin’ Up win courtesy of Blue Jelly Stampin’ but unfortunately I can’t tell you what it is.  It’s very pretty though and matches the delicate flower image perfectly.  I’ve trimmed it with a punched border (which in hindsight probably should have been Pumpkin Pie in colour) and added matching ribbon.
Here’s a picture from the top of the card to give you an idea of how it all fits together.
Hope you like it…let me know what you think Smile
