I went for the pretty colours of Sahara Sand and Blushing Bride with a touch of gold. The background paper is from the Falling in Love DSP pack (links to all products at the end of the post) and it's on a base card of Sahara Sand. There's also a little of an a coordinating sheet of paper behind the lace doily.

Stampin' Up! A Nice Cuppa Vintage Teacup Birthday Card

Hello lovelies,

Today I have a vintage tea pot card for you using the Stamin' Up! A Nice Cuppa bundle - I had so much fun making this card and love the grungy way the tea cup turned out. Read on for tips.

Stampin Up A Nice Cuppa and Timeless Textures stamp set used on a vintage tea cup birthday card (click for full instructions) by Claire Daly Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

Tips to create this card:

  1. First up I used the beautiful Timeless Textures background stamp (using Crumb Cake and Tip Top Taupe ink) to add some grunge onto the base Crumb Cake stamp set. I also stamped onto the piece of Typeset specialty DSP.
  2. For the teacup, I clear embossed the tea cup image onto a piece of DSP from the Love Blossoms DSP stack. I wasn't particularly careful about getting an even and deep cover of Versamark ink before I embossed, because I wanted a grungy look.
  3. Next I used my brayer to run Early Espresso ink over the entire image making sure there was good coverage in the areas that weren't embossed. I then used a paper towel to clean off the ink from the embossed areas.
  4. The tea cup image was cut out using the Cups and Kettles Framelit die.
  5. Finally I added some embellishments for extra texture - Tea Lace Doily, ribbon, linen thread.
  6. My greeting is from Balloon Celebrations. I really love the whimsical nature of the greeting!

Stampin' Up! Birthday Blooms stamp set two ways

Good morning lovely stamping friends. It's a lovely Autumn morning in Melbourne today, and the birds are singing outside my window. I spent a little tome in the garden over the weekend, trimming the roses to encourage the last of the autumn flowering. Makes me happy!

Today I have some rose themed cards for you, using Birthday Blooms stamp set from the 2016 Occasions catalogue. This first card I made for my Mum's birthday. She's here visiting for the week too which is lovely.

 

Stampin Up Birthday Blooms watercoloured birthday card by Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia www.clairedaly.typepad.com

 

I embossed the image I gold onto Shimmer cardstock and then coloured using my Aquapainter picking up ink from the inside lid of the ink pads. I wasn't too worried about perfection in colouring and blending, really just wanted to get a little colour onto the blooms. If you want more precise blending, I would recommend using watercolour paper. My colours were blushing Bride and Rose Red for the petals and Mint Macaron for the leaves. My patterned papers are from the Timeless Elegance DSP pack (the striped one) and the It's Your Birthday DSP stack (the Mint Macaron one). Love the cute little bow clips too. They are a real vintage gold colour and suit this style of card.

 

Stampin Up Birthday Blooms watercoloured birthday card by Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia www.clairedaly.typepad.com

 

Even though Birthday Booms has some lovely greetings, I wanted to use this greeting that comes with the Rose Wonder stamp set (also in the 2016 Occasions Catalogue).  Here's a closer look at the colours and stamp set.

Stampin Up Birthday Blooms stamp set from Occasions Catalogue 2016

This second card uses the same stamp set but a more fresh vintage look. I embossed the image in white, and used a watercolour wash on the petals (just Rose Red ink this time) and leaves (Mint Macaron). Both papers I have used here are from the It's My Birthday DSP stack from the Occasions 2016 catalogue.

Stampin' Up! 2016 Easter Cards and FabFri82

Hello lovely stampers!

It's literally years since I have been involved in any stamping challenges, and this week I needed a little inspiration so I decided to play along with the Fab Friday Challenge 82. It's a colour challenge which I thought was perfect for some Easter cards.

Fab Friday Logos-013

 

I've put the cute little bird from Honeycomb Happiness to work in both of these cards. The DSP in this one is from the It's My Birthday DSP stack.

For this one, I have used the stamps in Work of Art to colour the eggs, which I cut using the ovals framelits.

Stampin' Up! Masculine cards - Occasions and Saleabration 2016

Hello friends.

Today I have some masculine cards for you. Lots of my customer tell me they struggle with making masculine cards, and I do confess that I don't find them the easiest either. These ones are based on the Shine On cardstock weight designer series paper in the 2016 Occasions Catalogue. For the greeting I have used the 2016 Saleabration set, Perfect Pairings. There is still time to get this set for free with a $90 order (offer ends March 3tst).

Shine on 1

Shine on 2

Shine on 3

Hope you like these card ideas. I recommend checking out the Shine On DSP as it's really great - one side has silver foil patterns, the other side either Bermuda Bay, Watermelon Wonder or Cucumber Crush patterns.

Here's a closer look at those colours together:

You're So Lovely Kit and Stamp Set from Stampin Up 2016 Occasions Catalogue.

Over the last few weeks, I've been having a play with one of the kits in the Stampin' Up! 2016 Occasions Catalogue, called You're So Lovely. Gold foil is so on trend right now, and this kit is a base kit you can play with to create some looks of your choice.

Let me show you some of the things I have made with this kits so far, and then I'll explain more about why I love the kit. I made a whole bunch of Congrats cards to send for some recent team achievements.

For these ones I added a few extra embellishments: some of the gold Metallic glitter tape which is one of the Saleabration choices, some gold buttone and some twine/linen thread. The butterfly die cut are included in the kit, along with the sponge brayer to colour them any colour you like.

Stampin Up You're So Lovely Kit / Stamp Set card by Claire Daly SU Demo Melbourne Australia

 

Here's a closer look at the products. First up there is the kit which contains enough supplies to make 12 cards (with envelopes) and 12 gift bags. I'll be showing the gift bags in a later post, as soon as I get the chocolate eggs to fill them (temporarily pop in there for the few minutes while I take the photo and then eat them :) - love my job!).

You're so lovely Project Kit Stampin Up

Herein lies why I LOVE this kit - you get to play LOTS with ink and can customise things a lot, as well as have products left over at the end to use on other cards.

  • See those clear sheets? They are masks, and you can either use the negative or positive bits to place on your card and sponge over to create some cool effects.
  • There's also the sponge brayer (which comes with two head pieces you can interchange and also wash in running water after use. This allows to you achieve both a soft look (like on the first few cards) or a more saturated look (like on the butterfly cards). It's all about PLAY!
  • There are also some cute die cuts to play with including label in kraft or black which match the stamp set perfectly.
  • Adhesive gold tars and brads add extra embellishments to your cards.

You also get instructions and full colour pictures of what you could create.

There is also a matching stamp set. While I have used this on my projects, you could honestly still have heaps of fun with the kit without it. I'm all for matchy matchy though!

Art With Heart Team Showcase: 8 ways with the Stampin' Up! Rose Wonder Stamp set / Rose Garden Thinlets.

Hello crafty friends.

Myself and many of the clever ladies in my Art With Heart Stampin' Up! team have been playing with the Rose Wonder stamp set and Rose Garden Thinlit Dies from the 2016 Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalogue.

8 ways to use the Stampin' Up! Rose Wonder Stamp set and Rose Garden Thinlets from the Occasions 2016 Catalogue. Cards by the Art With Heart Team, Australia

 

These two products coordinate perfectly and if you buy them together as a bundle you save 15% (Tip: when you order a bundle make sure you use the bundle code and not just the two individual codes). Here's a look at the products:

Rose Wonder Stamp Set

Rose Garden Thinlits

 

Now here's a look at some of the way we have used this bundle. This one is by me, I chose to just use the Framelits here. My DSP is from the Love Blooms DSP stack, and my color are Crumb Cake and Rose Red. My greeting is from Party with Cake, which is one of my favourites birthday greeting sets at the moment (LOVE the typewriter font).

Rose Wonder / Rose Garden stamp set and thinlets by Stampin Up. Birthday card by Claire Daly SU Demo, Melbourne Australia.

 

My colour scheme is Rose Red and Crumb Cake, with the patterned paper from the Love Blossoms DSP stack. My greeting is from Party with Cake stamp set because I am totally in love with the typewriter font and all the birthday sentiments in this set.

This next card is by Kathryn Mangledorf in South Australia, Kathryn has used the inside cut outs from the Framelits. Learn how on Kathryn's blog post about this card here. Kathryn does regular classes in the Adelaide Hills.

Rose Wonder / Rose Garden stamp set and thinlets by Stampin Up. Card by Kathryn Manglesdorf Art With Heart Stampin Up Team Australia.

 

These next two are by Rachel Woollard, who does regular classes and catalogue launches in Ringwood East Victoria. I particularly love how Rachel has layered the stamped and die cut leaves on this first card.

Patterned DSP make a fabulous backing for the die cut rose too.

These two cards were  created by Genna Gifford in Pakenham, for her recent catalogue launch. Isn't this amazing? Genna does classes and catalogue launches.

This bundle also is a great one for making sympathy cards. Here's another card by Genna.

Ros Davidson is another team member who does classes in Skye, south east Melbourne. Ros loved Genna's first card, and wanted to case it.

Finally, here's another card by me. In this card I only wanted to use the single branch from the Framelits.

Stampin' Up! Party with Cake Birthday Card

Hello. I'm back from a couple of weeks family holiday down on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula and the boys are both back at school this morning so I'm raring to go on a creative 2016!

One of my intentions this year is to send more of the cards I make! It all started with one of my fabulous Stampin' Up! friends, Shannon West, vowing to #imbringingbirthdaysback by sending handmade cards and not just wishing people happy birthday on Facebook. Now THAT was a bandwagon I wanted to be on! There really is nothing like a handmade card to brighten someone's day. Anyone with me on that goal? I'm aiming to send 200 cards this year, and am off to a good start with 14 cards in the mail last month.

  12540640_10153369830628951_6389762843800341112_n

I'll keep you posted with my total during the year. I know I can do this. Imagine all the samples I will have to share too!

Here's a birthday card I completed this week using the Party with Cake stamp set, and It's My Party DSP from the 2016 Occasions Catalogue. I've also added a balloon using the new balloon punch which cut 2 size of balloons (how easy can birthday cards get?).

Today I am featuring 3 cards I made using the cute Honeycomb Happiness Stamp Set you can earn FREE during Stampin' Up! Saleabration as one of your choices when you spend over $90 in one transaction. That won't be hard with the 2016 Occasions Catalogue launching today also. How cute is the little bird?

I made 3 versions of the card which was super quick and easy. Just watercoloured the bird and balloon using an Aquapainter and the ink from inside the ink pad. My colours are Smoky Slate, Blushing Bride. So Saffron and Pool Party.

The greeting in the centre I actually gold embossed. It's a bit hard to catch in the image above, so here is a side on. How cute are the gold Bow Paper Clips? These are another of the cute embellishments in the Occasions 2016 Catalogue.

The Botanical Builder Framelits are AMAZING! Our most detailed flower / leaf Framelits ever. I particularly love the fern Framelit and all the bits and pieces which go in the flower centres. A couple of the flowers have pop up bits too which give fabulous dimension.
