Welcome and thank you so much for your visit. Take time to look around and see if any of my projects inspire you!
If you wish to purchase any of the products I have used, I am an Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator based in the UK, so if you live in Austria, France, Germany, Netherlands or United Kingdom, you are eligible to purchase from me, but regardless of where you are from, I do appreciate your visit to my blog.
Today I made a card for a friend’s birthday using the Ornate Borders Dies. The card base was made from an A4 sheet of Thick Very Vanilla cardstock which was cut to 8¾” x 6 1/8” and scored in half, the size of the card being determined by the length of the dies. The background cardstock is Gorgeous Grape, with Highland Heather on top. The mirror image of the die cut edging was achieved by die cutting one side, then flipping the cardstock to cut the second image from the rear. After this I ran the cardstock through the Big Shot again to flatten out the image, so it wasn’t as obvious that one side was cut from the rear. The central flowers were then cut using Very Vanilla cardstock. Next, the sentiment, from Itty Bitty Greetings, was stamped in Versamark and heat set in silver embossing powder before being cut using the smallest circle from the Stitched Shape Dies. The sentiment backing is Gorgeous Grape cardstock and cut from the next larger sized circle and adhered to the back, before being attached to complete the card. I hope my friend likes it!

How to Purchase:
If you wish to place an order, click on the item and the link will take you direct to the Stampin’ Up! store, alternatively, make a note of the item number(s) and use the ‘Shop Now’ tab above. Both methods require the next steps: On the next screen, at the top left hand side on the blue bar, there are three horizontal lines – click on the lines. A column will then appear where you will need to select your country (only if the one shown is incorrect) and underneath it reads ‘Find a Demonstrator’. Click this option and you will then need to select ‘Find a Demonstrator by name’. Insert my name (Angela Hicken) and click search. My details will then appear and you will need click ‘select’. (If you click the three lines on the blue bar again, this will confirm that you are now shopping with me). After selecting your items, insert the Host Code where prompted, which is 9XJE2ZJA during the month of June, but only if your order is under £150. (If your order is over £150 you will get to choose your own rewards). Every customer will receive a thank you goody package the following month, sent separately from your Stampin’ Up order. If the contact/no contact option is shown, please don’t select ‘No Contact’, as I won’t be able to send you anything!
If you make a purchase with me this month for £30 or more (excluding postage) in addition to the goody package, you will also receive a card kit, which will comprise of three cards to assemble yourself, all papers will be pre-cut for you with the card bases, envelopes and any die cuts provided, the only item not provided will be adhesive, as I find the preference of this differs greatly between crafters.
Thank you for viewing my project today – I hope you will visit again soon!
