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.
I’m so pleased with how this card turned out and I think the colours go so well together. All of the stamping was done using the Field of Flowers stamp set. To begin with, I made the background on which the flower is stamped. On Whisper White cardstock, I used a brayer with Rococo Rose and Highland Heather ink. I then gave the cardstock a light spritz of water and left it to dry. After this, I stamped the flower in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and cut the piece down to 2” x 3½”. I saved an offcut from the background to back the sentiment and cut it down to 3¾” x 1” and punched both ends in the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch. Next I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock, cut it down to 31/8” x ¾” and again, punched the ends using the same punch. I glued the two pieces together and set it aside. The larger background was stamped randomly using Rococo Rose, Highland Heather and Real Red ink onto Whisper White cardstock. This was cut down to measure 3¼” x 4¾” and adhered to a notecard base. The flower silhouette was then attached, leaving the sentiment and backing, to which I attached dimensionals to the rear before attaching to the card.

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!
