#simplestamping plus 2 stepped up versions: Beauty Abounds card

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 


Thank you so much for visiting my blog today, I really hope you like my project.  I have started with a single layer card and some simple stamping using one stamp set and 2 colours. I have then stepped it up by adding a mat to the card, that has been embossed. One step further and a further mat has been added in colours card stock to match one of the colours of ink. I can't decide which I like best, what do you think?

I do apologise that I forgot to add the intro to the video, it just launched straight into making the cards without the usual hello and welcome, sorry.





Time for the closeups!

Stampin' Up! Joining Offer Explained

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 


Thank you so much for visiting my blog today, I am really excited to share with you the fantastic new Stampin' Up! joining offer during  Sale-A-Bration.

Check out my video where I show the bag and an example of £170 worth of Stampin Up! products


My Team


I have a growing team of demonstrators, and have already welcomed new members since Jan 3rd this year, some are trying to grow a business and some are what we call 'hobby demos' they simply order for themselves and enjoy the 20% discount for themselves. It really is up to you. 

As a demonstrator, to remain active you need to meet quarterly minimums (aprox £210) which for Sale-A-Bration joiners will be the end of June 2018. SO that is £35 a month! If you do not achieve this then you just stop being a demonstrator. I will not pressure you to buy or make sales. But if you did want to start a business then I will be here to support you with that.

I have been a demonstrator now for 2 years and have really enjoyed my journey and sharing my love of paper crafting online, on YouTube and in person at my classes and one to one sessions. 

One of the highlights of being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator is attending On Stage, if you sign up before January 15th then you will be able to apply for a place at Aprils On Stage and join me as we get to see the new annual catalogue and receive lots of new product absolutely FREE! As well as On Stage there will be a Pootlers team day on the following day as well. Here you get to craft for another day with the most amazing group of people and crafters I have ever met.

If you plan to spend at least £99 in the new catalogue then it would really be worth considering joining up. If you would like to contact me for more information then please do.

Stitched Rectangles Framed Card

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 


Thank you so much for visiting my blog today, I really hope you like my project.  This project os the card I made fro the Wednesday Design Team challenge on the Facebook group Stampin' For All. It was a card sketch.  I chose this sketch because I had just received the new Stitched Rectangle framelits.


Stitched Rectangles Framed Card Nigezza Creates

Measurements and Materials


  • The new Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies from Stampin' Up! are the basis of this card. I used several of the die cuts to layer and form frames. 
  • I have cut them all out and numbered them below with the measurements on them

  • Number 1 & 2 were used to make the other frame. I love how you get stitching on both edges of the frame. 
  • The DSP was cut using number 2. 
  • For the topper I decided on the Lemon Lime Twist card to make another frame 
  • I used number 5 & 6 for the Frame 
  • The DSP topper was cut using number 6
  • I turned the DSP over so the smaller gingham was showing 
  • The sentiment was cut out using number 12
  • I stuck the ribbon around the largest gingham rectangle
  • I tied a bow separately and used a glue dot to secure this once the card was finished
