Dsp special

I am featuring the lovely Fruit Stand Designer Series paper. To be honest, this wasn't a paper that immediately caught my eye, but I received a small sample in a team product share and when I was looking for a paper to use for this card set, the bright colours really caught my eye and now I really like and have ordered a whole pack as part of the special so I can use more of it!

My project is a card box which holds four mini cards and envelopes. The box and envelopes are made using our Envelope Punch Board.

Mini card box and cards / enveloes made with Envelope Punch Box using Fruit Stand DSP by Claire Daly Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

The box and envelope colour is Cucumber Crush and the card colour Flirty Flamingo which coordinate perfectly with the Fruit Stand DSP. The other colours featured in the DSP are Daffodil Delight, Peekaboo Peach, Pear Pizazz, Tangerine Tango, Watermelon Wonder and Whisper White.

The box holds four mini cards and handmade envelopes. The cards are 3.5" x 3.5" and the envelopes are made using the Envelope Punch Board starting with a piece of 6x6" DSP from the 2015-2016 InColour Paper Stack.

Here's some quick instructions to make the card box using the Envelope Punch Board.

Start with a piece of cardstock 8" x 8". Stamp on this if you wish. I have stamped some of the smaller images from Blooms and Wishes stamp set using Cucumber Crush ink.

Box 1

Place the top left corner at the 3.5" mark on the punch board. Score and punch.

Box 2

Move the top left corner I" to the left (to the 4.5" position) and score and punch again.

Box 3

Rotate the cardstock 90 degrees anticlockwise. You don't need to pay attention to the ruler at the top anymore, just line up each of the score marks and punch and score.

Box 4

Rotate and do this on the other two sides. Using a pair of paper snips, cut sideways on the bottom tabs so they fold inwards, and cut down on the top tabs so they fold downwards as shown.

Box 5

Use a bone folder to crease each of the scored lines, Apply adhesive to the outside of the bottom flap.

Box5a

Fold to close the side flaps over the bottom tab (place your bone folder inside the box and press down on a flat surface to apply pressure for better adhesion). The box closes with the addition of a belly band.

Art With Heart Stampin' Up! Team Blog Hop for Easter Inspiration

Blog hop start

Hello. With just over 3 weeks left until Easter, some of the girls in my Art With Heart Stampin' Up! team thought we would share some Easter creative inspiration with you. Of course that also meant I needed to head off to my local supermarket to get some suitable props for my photos. How cute is the rabbit (it says, "nawwww, somebody loves you" when you press it's tummy") and I love the speckled eggs!

Stampin Up Easter Card using Happy Easter Bunny and Cafe Bag using For Peeps Sake Stamp Set for Art With Heart Blog Hop by Claire Daly Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

I'm so lucky to have an amazing group of friendly, supportive and creative girls on my team. My Stampin' up! journey would be nothing without them, I'm very grateful. All the girls on the hop today can help you with your Stampin' Up! needs.

If you place an order with any of us during Sale-a-bration (ends March 31st), you can choose a free item with every $90 you spend in one transaction. There are lots of fabulous free items to choose from (ask me for a brochure and an Occasions Catalogue) and the promotion will end on 31st March. When you join during Sale-a-bration, you get to choose whatever you like from our catalogues, but pay just $169 for $235 worth of product (that’s a huge discount!) but also you get to choose between two free product options. It’s quick and easy to join online too. Ask me how!

You have come to my blog from my lovely friend, Nikki Sadler.

Here's some more information about my projects. The easter card uses the Happy Easter Bunny Stamp Set, with the Dictionary Background Stamp randomly stamped in the background to give a distressed effect.

Stampin Up Happy Easter Bunny Card by Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

I embossed my image in White, and then used blender pens to colour the image. I used Crumb cake ink straight onto the Crumb Cake card stock for the bunny, and Pear Pizzazz the same way for the leaves. When I wanted to create a pastel effect, I used white craft ink first (allow to dry or blast with your heat gun) and then added colour over the top. Here's a summary of the products used on this card (AC means it's in the Annual Catalogue, OC means Occasions Catalogue).

  • Happy Easter Bunny Stamp Set (OC)
  • Dictionary Background Stamp (AC)
  • Oval Framelits Dies and BigShot (AC)

  • Cardstock: Pink Pirouette, Crumb Cake (AC)
  • Paper: Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack (AC)

My second project is a decorated cafe bag, perfect for holding mini eggs. Again I went for a vintage feel here with the Dictionary background stamp used with uneven pressure (I put the bag on top of the stamp and lightly pressed in a few different places). I have also used the For Peeps Sake stamp set which is in the Occasions Catalogue and has some really fun Easter images.

Decorated Journal using Stampin' Up! Hello Life and SB93 sketch

I LOVE notebooks and journals, I have a zillion of them :) I especially love giving them a personal touch which is what I have done with todays Stamping and Blogging sketch, SB93. Love this awesome quote stamp in the Stampin' Up! Set Hello Life in the 2015 Occasions Catalogue. I think it's perfect for a DIY/handmade journal, don't you?

Stampin Up Hello Life DIY Handmade journal using chalkboard paper by Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia for SB93

For the background stamping, I just very randomly inked my background stamp with Crumb cake ink and applied uneven pressure as well. Love the haphazard effect it gave, as it contrasted nicely with the brighter colours. The little flag pieces are actually bits from the Saleabration Project Life mini cards. You can check out all the products I have used at the bottom of the post.

Here is the sketch we had to work with this week. Sandi has done such a fabulous job with our sketches.

Stampin' Up! Many Merry Stars Kit DIY Christmas Tree

Hello. I've been playing with the Many Merry Stars kit from the Stampin' Up! Extra Special Christmas Supplement.

Stampin' Up! Many Merry Stars Kit DIY Christmas Tree

All the pieces for these stars (plus another 22 ranging in size from 5.1 to 38.1cm) are included in the kit, along with lots of embellishments, die cuts and wood veneer embellishments. I also added some rhinestones coloured with my Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities, and some linen twine with punch shapes attached. For the tree base, I used one of the small plastic medicine cups turned upside down, and I covered it with Early Espresso ribbon using Tombow glue.

Stampin' Up! Bright and Beautiful Christmas Card and Star Decoration

Hello lovelies. Feeling festive? I was yesterday while Iwas playing with this fabulous new bundle in the 2014 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue. It's called Bright and Beautiful, and it's been released a month earlier than the catalogue at a special 15% off bundle price. It will be in the holiday catalogue but you wont be able to get it at the discounted bundle price.

Here is my Christmas card and star bauble / decoration I was able to make with this bundle. 

Stampin' Up! Bright and Beautiful Christmas Card and Star Decoration

I have stamped the star image in Cherry Cobbler onto Typeset DSP for the layers. The centre layer is gold embossing on crumb cake. I also twirled some linen thread in there for some extra texture.

Brght and beautiful cherry cobbler close up.

For the star decoration, I attached this to some cardstock to make it firmer. To make these star decorations, you just need two of the largest stars. Then score the centre of each point through to the opposite indented 'v' point. Do this with all 5 points on each side. Then fold the scores on the points outwards and the valleys inwards. Finally join both stars together with Fast Fuse.

If you love this bundle, grab it for 15% off before the special ends on August 31st (you will be able to buy the stamp set and star framelits individually after that date). Just click on the product links below under the signature.

BigShot 3

CASEing the Catty Stampin' Up! Challenges

I'm excited to have another opportunity to share my Stampin' Up! creative projects as part of the design team for an all new challenge blog, called CASEing the Catty. I love the idea behind the challenges by the lovely Bron Eastley. The challenges are 100% Stampin' Up! and you can view the individual products used in each product in links to my online Stampin' Up! store at the end of each post. The idea of the challenge is to encourage you to case a project from a category in the 2014 Stampin'  Up! Catalogue. It;s a fabulous challenge blog so I hope you will play along. This week it was Gifts and Packaging.

Decorated gift box for CASE challenge 1 by Claire Daly Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia at www.clairedaly.typepad.com

I chose to CASE the gift box pictured top left on page 14 of the 2014 Australian Stampin' Up! Catalogue. I liked the use of the doily and belly band, which could be customised for so many different types of projects. The base box for the project is the Tag a Bag Gift Boxes where you get 8 pre-cut and scored boxes with acetate sleeves, for just $11.95. Embellishing your own gift boxes gives extra WOW to your gifts, and lets your personality shine through to the recipient. It's a great way to use up paper and embellishment left overs and it's easy to make your gifts look SO pretty!

Decorated gift box for CASE challenge 1 by Claire Daly Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia at www.clairedaly.typepad.com

I chose to embellish the gift box using one of my favourite sheets from the All Abloom DSP paper stack, with lots of great colours in it including Mossy Meadow, Blushing Bride, Strawberry Slush, Daffodil Delight. I also clear embossed a similar image fr0m I Like You Hostess Set on the box for some subtle decoration.

Stampin' Up! Projects Used in this Project

 


Valentines Day Tag Topper Punch Card

I made this little project for Valentines day, but it could be easily adapted to any Stampin' Up! punch and matching stamp set. Super easy and I have included the measurements below.

Language Of Love stampin up tag topper punch

 

Language of Love stampin up australia

The tag comes out to show the word 'you' and the coloured heart from Language of Love stamp set  in the new Occasions seasonal catalogue. This set coordinates with a few of our punches plus new Banners Framelit Dies.

Language of love stampin up tag topper punch

Measurements and Instructions

  1. My Wisteria Woner tag piece was 11.5 x 5.1cm before I punched the top using the new & totally cool Stampin' Up! Tag Topper Punch.
  2. My whisper white piece was 10cm x 12.6cm, and scored and folded at halfway accross the widest side (so at 6.3cm). 
  3. I punched the full heart in the front of the whisper white piece and then pierced around the edges using the Essentials Paper Piercing Pack.
  4. Next I used one of the rolls of our 3 pack of gold washi tape patterns, over the sides and bottom (only one of those edges actually needed sealing, the rest is decoration). I then decorated the rest of the front.
  5. I stamped the Language of Love heart onto a piece of Whisper white (inked with Almost Amethyst and Elegant Eggplant sponged around the edge), which I then cut out with the full heart punch. 
  6. To get this heart placed in the correct spot on the tag. place the tag in the pocket and adhere to the tag through the punched opening.
  7. I then finished off with Wisteria Wonder chevron ribbon and linen thread,

Hope you like today's project. If you would like to receive three free projects from me a month, you might be interested in my Stampin' Up! Hostess Clubs which are totally by mail and email, so you can stamp in your pj's if you like!

Stampin' Up! Australia: The Envelope Punch Board

I'm not usually a gadget girl, but I have had lots of fun playing with the Envelope Punch Board! This has just been released for sale today to Stampin' Up! customers in Australia. Here are some projects I made with it, using the Soho Subway Designer Series Paper.

Stampin Up Envelope Punch Board Australia

It can make all sorts of nifty things, but was primarily designed for creating envelopes in 60 different sizes. Coordinating your patterned paper with your cards looks so cute. Here are a couple of mini gift cards I made. I wanted to keep the cards flat and simple, so they would fit in the gift box I was making.

The gift box was made using a video by Kellie Gettlefinger I saw on Pinterest (you can check out my collected samples and videos in my Envelope Punch Board PinBoard on Pinterest) .

My final project was a file folder card with the Envelope Punch Board, using the instructions in the video by Patty Bennet. I found this simple to do and will be making lots of these I think! I also added a matching envelope. I love how you can make the envelopes so easily for so many different sizes of cards. Just love that grungy vintage Soho Subway DSP too!

Expanding Christmas Card / Mini Album and tutorial using Stampin' Up! Circle Card Thinlet Dies.

This project was a real labour of love and I LOVED how it turned out. Ever since I saw the new Stampin' Up! Thinlet Card Dies, I have had this expanding Christmas card in mind. I wanted a real WOW card that I could include all sorts of things like decorations, greetings, personal messages, photos and even a pocket for a family newsletter. There is plenty of room and more in this card.

There are 14 different areas on this project to decorate as I added in some extra bits to make it work like I wanted. This is just a teeny sneak peek of part of the expanding card.
