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’ve had the Ornate Borders Dies for a while now and this is the first time I have used them in a project (hanging my head in shame, especially as they are so nice!) I do intend to make amends by using them more in the coming weeks though. I made the card base first, using an A4 piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock, trimming it in half, then scoring one of the pieces in half. The DSP used is from one sheet, the patterns being back-to-back, so making sure the flowers were the correct way up on the wrong side, I cut the green background to 3¾” x 5½”, leaving the remaining 2¼” for the centre section on the flip side. Using that left over 2¼” piece, the border die I chose was run through the big shot on each long side before being attached to the green background and then onto the card base. The sentiment, from Itty Bitty Greetings, was stamped in Versamark onto Whisper White cardstock, then heat set after using gold embossing powder over it. This was cut out using the smallest oval in the Stitched Shape Dies. The green DSP backing for the sentiment was left over and cut down to 3½” x 1” and punched at both ends in the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch. To break up the green, I added another strip measuring 37/8” x 1” in Whisper White cardstock, again punching the ends in the same punch. The sentiment strip was adhered together before adding dimensionals to the rear and attaching centrally to the card. To finish, I added two medium sized Pearl Basic Jewels to the sentiment strip.

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!
