Stampin Up haul

This post will have 7 pictures in it so it will be quite a long post. I didn't expect to get my parcel til Friday so it was a very nice surprise when I got a knock at the door this afternoon. I almost hugged the poor delivery man - luckily for him i restrained myself!

This is the Tart & Tangy stamp set.

I have wanted this stamp set for ages but I have kept putting it off. I am sooooo glad I bought it. I ripped it open and started playing straight away. Great quality stamp.

The next thing I bought was a chocolate chip stamp pad. I am a bit of a pansy potter (is the strong mans daughter lol) at times - at least that's what my mum and dad used to call me cause I always break things. Anyway the second time i opened the stamp pad i took the lid right off. Luckily I was able to fix it (Phew). It stamps really well and the coverage is great on stamps.

I also purchased the Rich regals A4 assorted pack. i am unsure of what colours I like yet as I am new to Stampin up. My theory is to buy all the sets and then re-stock the colours I use alot of! Will let you know how it works for me.

I also got the Bold Brights stampin write markers. Just for my Tart and Tangy set. They are so good. They put on a nice strong colour and also look great when stamped. Very cool.

Now for the most exciting part for me. As the party was a success I got loads of free stuff - YIPEE! Firstly I chose my level 1 hostess gift. I chose the stamp set called A Little bit of Happiness. It is very cute and my next post will show you the card I made using some of my new stash.

I also had some money to spend on more products. So i chose to spend my pennies on ribbon. For my money I got - real Red 5/8 grosgrain, chocolate chip 5/8 grosgrain, brocade blue 5/8 grosgrain and regal rose 5/8 grosgrain. All the ribbon I was wanting in fact. WOO HOO!

My freebies do not end there. As I spent over £45 I also got the free ribbon bundle - I got 10 yards of certainly celery and so saffron.

I now have lots of fabby ribbon. Just need to add some papertrey ink ribbon and I will be in heaven.

  1. Lucky you! Sounds like you had fun! I have tart n tangy as well, it is very cute. Plus, I did the same thing when starting my paper collection and then decided on a few colours to have the whole set: ink, ribbon, paper. Certainly Celery, Old Olive and Chocolate Chip were my favourites. I couldn't see your photos though, so not sure if it was just me or not! Have fun!


Thanks for leaving me a message. hugs Lesleyx
