Stampin’ Up is a Paper crafting Company (Stamping/Planning/Memory keeping) who began in the US and then came over to Europe in 2007. It is based around people interested in Paper crafting being Demonstrators and holding Paper craft parties in their or other peoples homes or now on line through You tube videos and blog posts. At/on these events the Demonstrator
will show the people attending/watching how to use products that can then be purchased from them as well as different techniques.
I recently decided that I was going to sign up with Stampin’ Up as a demonstrator again which I did on Monday the 17th of July and I received my Demonstrator starter Kit on the Thursday afternoon which is what the video below is discussing.
I am showing all the items that I received in my Stampin’ up Demonstrator starter Kit.

Begin by cutting and folding a few blank cards out of heavy paper. Available at art-supply stores in various weights and in a range of neutral shades, printmaking paper is best. You can also buy blank cards, but be sure the paper stock is not too lightweight.
Step 1: Cut blank cards
For a distressed look, use a ruler as a guide, and rip toward you. For clean, cut edges rather than the feathered edges that tearing produces, cut along the ruler with a rotary cutter.
Tear the edge with a ruler for a distressed look.
For easy cutting, try a rotary cutter and a mat.
Step 2: Fold the cards
To make the centre fold, use a bone folder (or any tool with a smooth, rounded end) to press and set the fold.
Score the fold with a ruler<span style=”font-style:italic;”
Create a collage
Try out various arrangements before you commit to one and glue. Use bits of paper, fabric, ribbon, and trim for your design. Japanese and art papers, pictures pulled from magazines, old calendars, postcards, and even paint chips will fit the bill. Add bits of velvet, silk, wool, and snazzy print fabrics for tactile quality and to add dimension.
Step 1: Cut out and test trim
Fringe fabric ends, and tear paper shapes for interest. With burnout velvet fabric, as shown below, you can cut off the sheer backing.
Cut shapes from fabrics, paper or mahazines.
Step 2: Glue trim to cards
Either spray your shapes with a spray adhesive, or brush the shapes over your glue stick. Press them onto the paper. Lay a heavy book on top of the card while it dries.
When decided on design glue it to the card with adhesive.
Step 3: Use your sewing machine!
If you have a sewing machine then make use of all the fancy decorative stitches on it. With the right side facing up, sew over and around the fabrics and papers in a loose pattern.
Add machine stitches to the project if own a sewing machine.
Step 4: Add beads or buttons
Glue on three-dimensional objects: beads, buttons, or even shells and charms. If you plan to mail your card, make sure that the items will fit in your envelope and won’t be crushed.
Add 3D objects to the project for added dimension and texture.
Step 5: Cover the stitches
You might like the look of the stitching on the inside cover of your card. If not, simply glue a rectangle of decorative paper over it.
If stitching has been used on the card then hide the internal ones with some paper.
Make Custom Envelopes:
If you don’t have an envelope into which the new card will fit, just make one. Take apart an old envelope to use as a pattern.
Step 1: Create and cut out a pattern
Take apart an old envelope. Enlarge or reduce the envelope across the width or length as needed. Trace it on decorative paper, and cut it out.
Step 2 Create a more interesting envelope.
Add decorative stitching
If decide to add decorative stitching to the envelope do so while it’s still flat and unglued. Then fold it, and glue.
If you used a large button or delicate beads as accents, wrap the card in bubble wrap or tissue paper before you put it in an envelope to mail it.
