Magical Day Bundle. is such a fun set with Unicorns, dragons, wizards, mermaids and a knight it is every child however big or small and all us adults myths and magic fantasy.


Painted With Love dsp. is the gorgeous background paper and the reverse side is behind.  If there is one pack of dsp to get I would recommend this one.  It has lots of gold on it and is just lovely

Stampin Up Sunshine and Rainbows

Hello and welcome to Amethystarcrafting.  My name is Jane Allmark and I'm a UK Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator.

Sunshine & Rainbows Bundle. is the perfect set for anyone who loves rainbows.  Rainbows have always been very special to me as my late mother collected rainbow bits.  She had some lovely cling window stickers and sun catchers with rainbows on so when I saw this set I just had to have it to carry on the tradition.

The framelits are a must as they allow you to cut out the beams of the rainbow easily, would hate to fussy cut this shape lol. There are several different types of cloud too, which allows you to make different skies.

The sentiment I used is perfect You can't have a rainbow without a little rain and there are raindrops in a stamp to add the rain.

I tucked the ends of the rainbow in between the clouds to make a more realistic look and popped the clouds up on dimensionals with the lightening bolts and sunshine.

Simply mounted on a whisper white base, the images really pop.  I normally mount the card first before putting onto my card base, but I felt this way worked well with the white clouds.

Sale-A-Bration. is on now so if you purchase this bundle and an ink pad or cardstock or  pack of dimensionals you can get a FREE product.

Stampin Up Brusho and Magical Day

Hello and welcome to Amethystarcrafting. My name is Jane Allmark and I'm a UK Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator.

I'm so excited to share with you Brusho. 5 pots of crystalized powdered ink in Prussian Blue, Mossy Green, Brilliant Red, Gamboge and Yellow.  Pierce a little hole in the top of the pot and shake onto wet cardstock to create the most amazing colour bursts.

For this card I used the 
Magical Day Bundle. which is a coordinating stamp set and framelits with a wizard, a dragon, unicorn, mermaid and a little knight.

How to create Brusho stormy sky background.

  1. Take a piece of watercolour paper, whisper white cardstock, shimmery white cardstock or any cardstock you wish.  You will get a different effect on each.
  2. Using our spritzer totally wet the cardstock.
  3. Using the Prussian Blue shake the crystals onto the wet cardstock. A little goes a long way. Spritz again and see the colour burst and travel across the cardstock.
  4. In the centre of the card add some Mossy Green and wait a few moments for thecolour to burst again.
  5. Take a paper towel and blot excess water, then spritz again.
  6. Continue with both colours until you get the desired effect.  If you don't like it or it gets too blended just blot with paper towel and start again.
  7. Once desired effect achieve leave to dry naturally.
  8. This really is a unique technique as you will not achieve the colour bursts with any other medium.
During Sale-A-Bration. for every £45 spend you can get a FREE product from the Sale-A-Bration brochure.  So if you order the products to make the above card you can get something FREE too.

Stampin Up Labeler Alphabet

Hello and welcome to Amethystarcrafting. My name is Jane Allmark and I'm a UK Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator.

The Labeler Alphabet. is probably one of the best tools in your crafty stash that you can have, as it allows you to personalise and individualise any card.

I had to make a card for a guy who is an old rocker and was around in the punk rock days.  Male cards can be difficult as we all look sparkles and flowers and bows and a male card needs to be simpler and to the point.

How to make a male rock and roll card

  1. Labeler Alphabet stamp set. for the words
  2. Bird Banter stamp set. for the cockatoo coloured with our Stampin Write Markers and Stampin Blends,
  3. Epic Celebrations FREE Sale-A-Bration stamp set. for the guitar coloured in Dapper Denim ink using our Aquapainters.
For every £45 you spend you can get a FREE products from Sale-A-Bration brochure, just click on the Sale-A-Bration link at the top of the page.

Bird Banter is a great stamp set which can be coloured in any way you wish and has some great sentiments.  For only £15 it is a great buy.

Definitely a set to put in your basket.

Stampin Up Backgrounds using Lots of Lavender

Hello and welcome to Amethystarcrafting. My name is Jane Allmark and I'm a UK Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator.

Backgrounds are great fun to create and Sale-a-bration Lots of Lavender. is one of those sets.

I used Dapper Denim, Berry Burst and Lemon/Lime Twist ink pads and the inside Lavender stamp to create a pattern in the three colours across the cardstock.

I then teamed up coordinating cardstock for the banner and sentiment and used some Fresh Fig ribbon to finish the card.
