Conveyor Belt Cardmaking!

Hello, Crafters.

We have had the most amazing time in Thailand on the Stampin' Up! 2017 Incentive Trip. 

SU had everything covered, from having drinks, muffins and other nibbles available on our arrival at the Angsana Resort in Phuket, until the last day. 
Again, SU provided a huge amount of food and snacks for demos when they had checked out but had time to kill before heading off to the airport!

This morning's video is slightly different in as much as I show how I make multiple cards of the same design e.g. Thank You cards, Christmas cards. 
I don't work faster when I'm making multiples of the same card, but using this method does speed up the overall process.

Cardmaking should always be a pleasure!
The stamp set for the tulips is a two-step stamping, hostess set called Tranquil Tulips.

Stampin' Up! really come into their own when they produce this kind of stamp. The amount of shading is amazing!

The colours I've used are Sweet Sugarplum, Fresh Fig and Pear Pizzazz.

The THANKS is from the stamp set called You Move Me.

Each card is slightly different, but the overall look is brilliant for them all. 
There are more stamps that add extra shading for the leaves and stems. 

I didn't use them on my cards, but have stamped samples below to show the extra they add. 

The only one I found difficult was the stem. 

I came outside the image very slightly. I have also stamped samples of the smaller tulip, as well as the two smaller flowers. 

I hope this shows you how much this stamp set has to offer!

Today we're off to the carpet showrooms - at long last! 

 The insurance company has paid us what they feel is fair. 

We'll save our judgement until after we've spoken the the carpet saleman! Finger's crossed.

I wish you a happy Sunday, and until tomorrow, happy crafting.



  1. This would be a very helpful video for many, I am sure, Jan. I have done this "conveyor belt" style for years and really enjoy it. As 'strange' as it may seem, this particular stamp set is probably my most favourite one in the entire catalogue. Absolutely love it! Your Thank You cards are just lovely and thanks as always for sharing with all of us!

    1. Hi, Geraldine. Yes, I agree. This is probably my favourite stamp set too! I think Stampin' Up! have two-step stamping down to a fine art. I don't think they can be faulted! ☺ Happy crafting. JanB.
