Welcome to Creative Stamping.  

I offer workshops and demonstrations all focused on the fabulous papercraft products Stampin' Up! has to offer. As an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, I am here to showcase Stampin' Up! products, share special offers and give you fun project ideas.  I look forward to sharing my love of stamping with you and inspiring your creativity.


Circle Scissor Plus

I currently don't own this fantastic tool, but I have had a play with the Circle Scissors from the Summer Mini - it's a lot of fun!  

Circle Scissors Plus

The Circle Scissor Plus allows you to cut a circle any size from 1" (2.5 cm) to 6" (15 cm).  It is recommended that you use the Circle Scissors with the Glass Mat (also in the Summer Mini) as it gives you the best results and prevents damage to your Circle Scissors blade.  Here is a great YouTube video made by a fellow demonstrator that will help you understand how this tool works.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year


Wishing you and your family a happy New Year.  I hope your holidays are filled with memory-making times, lots of fun and happiness!



Gift Box for Cards

For those family members that are not 'cardies', I made up some of my favourite cards from the past few months and gave them and some envelopes as a Christmas gift.  This is the box that I made to put them in.

Pull-up Treat Gift Box for Cards
Stamps: Priceless (116402).  Card/Paper: Whisper White (106549), Chocolate Chip (108599), Ruby Red (106572), Candy Lane DSP (113980).  Ink: Ruby Red (102259), VersaMark (102283).  Accessories: Chocolate Chip 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon (109051), White Embossing Powder (109132).  Tools: Scallop Circle Punch (109043). Horizontal Slot Punch (105089), Stampin' Dimensionals (104430).

This box is based on a pull-up treat holder but, instead of a pouch, it is a thin box.  You don't undo the ribbon at the top, but pull it up and out pops the cards (or anything else you put in there).

Pull-up Treat Gift Box for Cards Open

Inside are six cards, two each of three different designs, plus matching envelopes.  I have found this to be a great way of packaging cards and adds a bit of flair to the gift.  I have stamped this box using stamps from Life Definitions ("just because" is a good reason for giving cards!) and Priceless stamp sets.


In January we will be making Valentines Pull-up Treat Holders for chocolate bars using this stamp set but, instead of flowers, we will use the heart image from Priceless.

Black 'n' White Christmas

I couldn't post this black and white Christmas card earlier as I made it for my husband.  This came out of a challenge to make a card using mainly black and white, which I struggled with as black is not a colour I use a lot.  So consequently, this card is really different from any other cards I have done lately.  I really like the resulting card.

Black 'n' White Christmas
Stamps: Season of Joy (113023).  Card/Paper: Basic Black (106561), Whisper White (106549), Real Red (106578).  Ink: Basic Black (101179), Real Red (103133).  Accessories: Basic Black 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon (109027), Basic Black Jumbo Grommet (114348).  Tools: Mat Pack (105826), Bone Folder (102300), Dimensionals (104430).  Non-SU!: Stick-on Rhinestones. 

This is probably my last Christmas card.  In some way I am pleased as Christmas can seem such a long time when you start Christmas cards in October!  However as I put my Season of Joy stamp set away for another year, I realise that I am going to miss this stamp set and making Christmas cards.  Till next year...


Christmas Greetings

The words of this stamp from the God's Blessings stamp are perfect for this time of the year...

Sharing with you the miracle of new hope and new life through the glorious gift of Christ the Lord.

Wishing you peace, hope and joy this Christmas season.  Merry Christmas.
