More from Stampin' Up! Manhattan Flowers

zoe tant stampin' up! demonstrator

I told myself I wasn't going to buy this beautiful embossing folder as I thought I'd seen lots of cards made using it and it wouldn't appeal to anyone, but I then saw examples of it used at Stampin' Up! training events and by other demonstrators in real life and decided that I couldn't really live without it.  It was good decision to need it as I've really enjoyed using it, not least in this example where I've used it on shimmery white cardstock and really it needs very little else as it is just so striking, elegant and beautiful.  I have however matted it onto designer series paper from the brights stack (real red) only 39p per double sided sheet, and basic black cardstock.  I cut the flower down slightly and then used the offcuts for my sentiment which is from Thank You Kindly.  I've also used a stamp from Strength and Hope to enhance the real red backdrop and you can see it more clearly on the image below which is the inside of the card.  Rhinestones, real red satin ribbon and crochet thread from my stash have just added the final touches for one of the many thank yous I need to send for all the gorgeous birthday presents I received at the weekend.  
Of course I had money for my birthday too and so can indulge my 'NEEDS' further.  The only difficulty is choosing what to have next! You probably have this problem with Stampin' Up! products too! Make a wishlist and dream and soon it will be yours.  Of course you could have it sooner if you think about being a demonstrator and then you get it much cheaper, with early access to new products and training to show you how best to use it! You  can tailor it all to suit your lifestyle and your needs.  Contact me to find out how I can help you to get the most out of being a demonstrator.  Let the fun begin......................
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Back soon

  1. What a lovely, elegant card Zoe. I think red and black always make very elegant cards. Belated birthday wishes


  2. Oh Zoe, what a rubbish friend am I! I knew your birthday was coming up soon & still managed to miss it, so sorry but I hope you had a lovely day.

    The card looks beautiful, so classy. Love the overlapped DSP too.
