Stampin’ Blends with Feathery Friends

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Stampin’ Blends with Feathery Friends

Yay, it’s back! The 12 Deals of Christmas from the last 4 years have been so popular that I couldn’t not bring it back to you again this year….!

Details are down at the bottom…!

How pretty is this card?

I do love rainbows, I think you all know that now, and for sure, my husband does too! He bought me a few rainbow gifts this year, and I’m thrilled with them. They’re residing in my office in my ‘rainbow zone’ area. It’s a little area where I have a few pretty rainbow items – tea lights, fairy lights, candle holders, and then a whole host of cards and gifts that people have sent to me. I love it, but wanted to add a new one of my own. So this is what I came up with!

I wanted a very open flower that I could colour in, but I wanted it to be on the smaller side, so that I could get 7 colours onto one card. And that’s where the Free stamp set Feathery Friends has come in. It’s a hostess set from the Annual Catalogue, and really lends itself to the whole colouring thing that is so so popular right now.

I stamped all of my flowers with Memento Ink, but I didn’t quite wait long enough for it to dry before commencing with the colouring. I started with the Daffodil Delight first then the Night of Navy so that I could get my spacing right, and you can see a bit of bleed on the ink in the yellow one. Please learn by my mistake and wait a little longer than I did!!!

I love the card and how it has come out, and it’s a super one to pop in the post to brighten someone’s day, particularly with the gloomy post-Christmas weather we have right now…

12 Deals of Christmas.

So, what’s this all about? Well, I don’t do sales, and I don’t do discounts. In my professional opinion, Stampin’ Up! offers the best quality products at the best prices around (and with over 10 years crafting experiences, trust me, I’ve tried ‘em all!). So you won’t ever see me offering to reduce the prices of products, or sharing my discount. But what I want to do, as a one off, just for Christmas, is offer 12 extra goodies that go into the regular Thank You Gift Pack that I send out to all my customers.

Each ‘deal’ will only be available for the stated day, and will vary in price, product and value.

I get an immediate email notification of all orders that come in, so you don’t need to worry about getting in touch, or emailing to say you want to take advantage of the deal, I’ll send it out automatically. 

Please note, if you select NO CONTACT, I cannot, by law, send you anything. Please make sure that you deselect that button….

Today’s Deal is –

All orders over £65 will receive a pack of Sweet Soiree Ready Shreddie from me, as well as their regular Thank You Gift Pack. It will come direct from me, as this is an offer direct from me. It will not come with the order you place. If you use the hostess code for the month, it will still count for Both!

Fine Print. This is not a catch, there is no single winner, this is not a competition. Please do not add it to your order, (unless of course you want duplicates!) as I will be sending this separately.

All Thank You Gift Packs will be posted after the 12 Deals of Christmas have finished.

I hope you enjoyed this project, please do use the hostess code to get free product! (hostess code shown in the top right of my blog for the current one!) Learn more HERE. If your order is over £150, please do not use this code as You become the hostess and get the Rewards!
