Stampin' Up! Owl builder Punch

Cor where did the weekend go? Hope it was lovely and sunny where you were, we had beautiful weather and had some great family time. I've been crafting like a mad woman for the last two days though, obviously I've not spent enough time in the room of craft recently and I'm trying to make up for it now with making lots and lots.

So today's share features one of my favourite products, the Owl Builder Punch:

I've made these owl get well tissue boxes before and if you'd like to make them too, visit my friend Jo's blog where you can buy the tutorial. My colour combo is Pink Pirouette, Wisteria Wonder and Coastal Cabana. I've used a mix of current and some retired designer Series papers - I can always find a way to use up the scraps and leftovers!

The sentiment is from Tag It, punched out with the Large Oval Punch.

It's reminded me how much |I love making lots of things the same - I love seeing them once my production line has finished. Odd how I don't feel the same way about house work or washing up etc!

If you'd like to order any of these products you can shop online 24/7 at my Stampin' Up! Online Shop

More tomorrow, I'm going to a lovely crafty social in the afternoon too, so will take my camera and share some photos on Thursday.

Stampin' Up! Undefined in Get Stamping Issue 8

Hello and a very Happy Easter to you. I'm back from a Jelly Family holiday in Spain, relaxed and ready to get creating again!

Today I can share with you another magazine commission that was published whilst I was away, it's in Issue 8 of Get Stamping by Practical Publishing. I was asked to use the Undefined stamp carving kit by Stampin' Up! and to create cards with a general Birthday theme in red, pink and purple:

Stampin_Up_Nottingham

I had already carved the image of my little boys having a cuddle and decided they'd work in this colour combination so set about designing a few more images to go with them. Starting with this balloon which I designed to fit inside the Stampin' Up! Postage Stamp Punch.

Stampin_Up_UK

All the sentiments are from Remembering your Birthday and the card bases are Baked Brown Sugar. on the next card I cut the balloons out and added strings so my boys are holding them.

Next a hand carved cupcake, I wasn't too sure about this one if I'm honest!

My final card with all three carved stamps together.

Here they are all together.

Hope you like!
I'm off to cook a ma-hoosive family dinner now and then I imagine I'll be stuffing my face with chocolate - if the boys will let me raid their stash!!!

Stampin' Up! Batman

A very special make f4rom me today. My friend and her husband found out a few weeks ago that their little four year old boy has leukaemia and he's already started his treatment. Whilst he's very poorly he is fighting every step of the way, he's a little super hero. He's also a massive fan of batman so I made these for him:

Stampin_Up_Nottingham

The card is made entirely with Stampin' Up! supplies. I found a fabulous tutorial on how to make the large Batman symbol using the Oval Framelits Dies and the Word Window Punch - who knew?

The fabric owls eyes are die cut using the Circles Big Shot die - not so neat at cutting circles myself! Righto can't loiter as it's day one of the school holidays here.......I have Thomas the Tank Engine cakes to go and bake with Blake now. Loving it!

Back tomorrow with my new class schedule.

Stampin' Up! Simply Created Burlap and Blooms Wreath

And she's back! Sorry to keep disappearing on you all, poorly children, DIY, birthdays and stuff all happening at once in the House of Jelly at the moment. Fear not I'm still here and planning some new classes and tutorials for you to enjoy.

Yesterday I braved the hot glue gun after my previous incident and am thrilled to say I didn't hurt myself once. Nor did I botch flowers. I just made this:

Stampin_Up_Demonstrator

I had great fun making it and will be running a class in Nottingham very soon so you can come along and make one too!

I also made this over the weekend:

Stampin_Up

I finally succumbed to creating a pop up card in a box and again I have to say it was great fun to make, not knowing how it would turn out or if it would actually fold flat when finished, but it did. I have to thank Louise for inspiring me to make it and Jo for some of the design!

Must go - classes to prep for!!
