Art With Heart Team May Stampin' Up! Blog Hop - 2017 Annual Catalogue Sneak Peeks!

16387394_10154010975516735_4953759083653002070_n

Hello there. It's blog hop time again with my super talented team members from the Art with Heart Stampin' Up! team in Australia. Today we would like to preview some of the amazing new products from the upcoming 2017/18 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue which launches on June 1st. Be sure to ask any of the girls along the way for a copy of the new catalogue! We love to share what we are making with each other and with the stamping community. This is just one of the fun sharing activities we do each month, so if you are looking for a fun community of stampers to join ask us how quick, easy and affordable it is.

I am focusing on the Daisy Delight bundle of stamp set and punch for my cards. These will be available to purchase June 1st and there is a lovely coordinating Designer Series Paper as well.

  Stampin Up 2017/18 Annual Catalogue Sneak Peek Daisy Delight stamp set / Daisy Punch / emboss resist technique / seaside embossing folder / Powder Pink / Berry Burst

For this card I have embossed the daisy twice onto Shimmery White cardstock and then watercoloured over the top using two of the new InColours, Powder Pink and Berry Burst. Once dry, I cut out with the daisy punch and layered with a dimensional. The new Faceted Gems (also coming June 1st) are perfect flower centres, They come in clear (shown here) and gold.

In my second card, I have featured some of the  Beautiful Daisy Designer paper, along with paper from the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack (LOVE THIS!). You will also spy a new punch shape, and a new greeting from a great birthday stamp set / bundle called Happy Birthday Gorgeous. This time I have stamped the daisy in Wisteria Wonder ink onto the same coloured cardstock. I have used a cold faceted gem for the flower centre.

My final card features what I am sure is going to be one of my new favourite colour combinations for the new catalogue - Lemon Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide. This time I curled the daisy petals a little and added some Lemon Lime Ink (which turned out too hard to see because it's such a perfect match to the cardstock). For the flower centre, I have coloured some of the Perfect White Accents (in current catalogue) with a black sharpie and grouped them together.

For my background, I smooshed (that is a word you know!) onto a non stick BBQ sheet and then spritzed it and pressed the Shimmery White cardstock onto it (I did each colour separately).  You will also notice a new trim - and it's COPPER!! It's a loose -weave copper trim with zig zag stitching and will be available on June 1st. The cool thing is you can spread the fibres out which gives a great distressed look.

I have you have enjoyed my sneak peek. I am sure you are going to love everything the girls have for you tonight. We get so excited when it's blog hop night, as the process of sharing with each other is equally as exciting for us as sharing with you!

Saying Goodbye is Hard to Do: April Art With Heart Team Stampin' Up! Blog Hop

16387394_10154010975516735_4953759083653002070_n

Today I am participating in a Stampin’ Up! Australia blog hop along with the super talented ladies in the Art With Heart Team. We thought it would be fun to share some projects using our favourite retiring products from both the 2016-2017 Stampin’ Up! Annual and 2017 Occasions catalogues!

Select retiring products have discounts of up to 50% off but are only available until sold out. Be sure to place orders before the sun sets on these items on 31 May. You don’t want to miss out – ask me how!

My favourite retiring product by far from the last year is everything Mint Macaron! One of the product suites I have most loved pairing with Mint Macaron this year is the beautiful specialty Affectionately Yours Designer Series Paper, the coordinating Affectionately Yours Washi Tape and the Love and Affection stamp set. I have created a card with a coordinating envelope and bookmark using these products. Lots of these items are reduced in the retiring products section in my online store, but only available until sold out so get in quick.

I just LOVE the copper foil highlights on this sheet of the paper. The Washi Tape is also beautiful and has a roll included with copper foiling as well.

As well as copper, I have used the retiring Lace Doileys from the Occasions catalogue on each of the projects. For the envelope, I used the doiley as a stencil with Mint Macaron ink sponged over the top.

Finally I made a coordinating bookmark to pop into the card (I think I will be sending these projects to my Mum as a happy hello - pretty sure she isn't reading my blog!).

As hard as it is to say goodbye to favourite retiring Stampin' Up! projects for 2017, the good news is we are less than 2 weeks away from demonstrators being able to pre-order even more lovely brand new products! Join the Art with Heart team from May 2nd and you can include new catalogue goodies in your awesome value starter kit. You can join just for yourself too. Any of the girls on todays's hop (including me) will be able to help you with information about joining our team. You can also request a brand new catalogue from them (available mid to late May) if you don't already have a regular demonstrator.

Now it's time to follow the blog hop onto our next participant, Andrea Roberts. The blog hop goes full circle and there is a list of participants at the end if you get lost along the way. Until next time, happy crafting!

Art With Heart Team Blog Hop: It's Beginning To Look a Lot Like Christmas

Team Blog Hop Logo 300px wide

Today some of my fabulous Art with Heart Stampin’ Up! team girls have created some amazing Christmas projects to inspire you with the theme, It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! We have tags, gift bags, teacher gift ideas, decorations and many more fun projects to create this holiday season.

I chose some gift wrapping options as my projects for this blog hop. First up I have some cute gift tags I made using the 2" x 2" cards in Project Life Hello December Accessory Kit (on special, along with the matching card kit until 11.50pm AEST Monday November 28th this week for 30% off). I love the colours in these and can't wait to see how great they looked on my Christmas gifts under the tree. To make these, I just cut pieces of  cardstock 6cm x 12cm and scored in the centre. Easy peasy!

The stars and the tree embellishments are included in the accessory pack. I just coloured the tree with a Bronze Sharpie for some added interest (bit obsessed with the copper look this year).

Next up I have a small quick and easy gift idea which fits 3 Lindt chocolate balls in perfectly. These little Christmas favors would be great for the Christmas table, co-workers, social group members and more. You can buy the clear boxes in packs of 16 for just $13.25 (Item 141699 Clear Tiny Treat Boxes) so they are very economical. I just cut three pieces of DSP 9.5cm x 4.5cm and scored in half and placed in the base and up the side on 3 sides (leaving the front side open). I then just attached a belly band of coordinating DSP and made a bow using the Bow Builder Punch.

My final project is a decorated gift box (I recycled one of the boxes I received charms in at OnStage). I love Poinsettias. They remind me of my grandmother. The Festive Flower punch (10% off in this week's Online Extravaganza sale) has all the bits for this flower (and there's a video showing you how to use it on the Stampin' Up! You Tube channel). If you want to stamp the leaf and flower veins, the Reason for the Season stamp set is the coordinating set.

 Now it's time to check out some more festive creations. Next on the list is Mary Kelly. Enjoy!

Art With Heart Team Blog Hop: Showcasing Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper on Sale

Team Blog Hop Logo 300px wideToday some of my Art with Heart Stampin’ Up! team girls are sharing some wonderful ideas to inspire you with our Designer Series Papers. This month is the start of the new Stampin' Up! year and we have a special promotion on our Designer Series Paper, buy 3 get 1 FREE for the month of October and there is no limit! You have come here from Rebecca Jacavou, one of the talented stampers on my team. Blogs are full circle so just keep hopping and there in a full list of participants at the end as well.

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.

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

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.

Box 6

Next up on our blog hop is my lovely team member Rachel Woollard in Ringwood East. Rachel is one of my leaders with a growing team and is super creative with her classes and teaching. If you are looking for classes or a great demonstrator to join under, Rachel would be perfect.

Stampin' Up! 12x12 Scrapbooking Layouts using the 2016 Holiday Catalogue Products.

Art With Heart Stampin Up Team Australia Claire Daly

Today some of my Art with Heart Stampin’ Up! team girls are sharing some fun and fabulous ideas to inspire you from our brand new Holiday Catalogue available now until 3rd January 2017. Be sure to request your copy of the catalogue today!


You have come to my blog from the very talented Rachel Woollard. Blogs are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post is a link to the next. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links.

I have decided to show you a double Christmas 12x12" scrapbooking layout to show you how many of the Holiday Catalogue products can also be used in Scrapbooking (double click for a closer look). I LOVE Christmas and love when it's time to decorate the house and tree each year. I like to capture bits and pieces which get added to the collection each year and how the house looks. Just looking at this layout makes me excited for this years Christmas. I can't wait to add the new ornaments I bought in Paris to the tree this year!

Stampin Up Scrapbooking 12x12 layout using 2016 Holiday Catalogue products Star of Liht bundle, Presents and Pinecones DSP and Washi tape, Christmas Greetings thinlits. By Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

 

Here's a closer look at each page individually. I have used the Presents and Pinecones Designer Series Paper and Washi Tape for my layout, and my base cardstock is the coordinating Mint Macaron from the 2015-17 InColour 12x12 cardstock pack.

Here's a few little details of my layout. I created my own little photo descriptions on my computer as strip journaling. A bit of coiled Gold bakers twine (from the Bakers Twine Trio Pack in the Holiday Catalogue). Love the weight of this twine - perfect for using in this way. That's one of the stamped greetings from the Star of Light stamp set stamped and sitting over the twine. You can also catch a glimpse of one of the die cut Christmas words from the Christmas Greetings thinlits which I have used to embellish my page. I'm a big fan of using words on pages as they really set the scene for the emotion I hope my page conveys,

The greetings in the Star of Light stamp set are perfect for using on a Christmas scrapbooking layout. I stamped them in coordinating Mint Macaron ink and attached using the Presents and Pinecones Washi tape. I have used the Washi tape in lots of other places as well. It coordinates perfectly with the DSP and colours (which is why I LOVE scrapbooking with Stampin' Up! products) and I find it's great to fill spaces and create flow through the layout. This is especially important in double page layouts.

The Starlight Thinlit dies which coordinate with the Star of Light Stamp set make fabulous embellishments. I have cut this one using Copper foil cardstock and a layer of Vellum. The piece in the middle is a White Perfect Accents shape, coloured with a bronze Sharpie. Looks great with the Copper Foil I think.

I'm a fan of using coordinating colour enamel shapes to highlight journaling strips. Love you can get these packs of enamel shapes in our colour groups. I'm always reaching for them.

I did my title on the computer. It's easy to find the RGB codes for our Stampin' Up! colours using a Google search, and that's how I often print my titles for scrapbook pages if I'm not stamping them.

I hope this has given you some ideas for getting some memories down on paper today. Scrapbooking is such a rewarding hobby and I have been doing it for over 14 years now and so grateful to have so many fabulous family memories captured.

Now it's time to move onto the next Art With Heart team member blog. Next up is Judy May. You will love Judy's fabulous creations and attention to detail.

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).

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.

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.

Art With Heart Team Blog Hop: Memory Keeping

Awht blog hop start
Welcome to my Art With Heart Team Blog Hop for November. This month some of the girls are focusing on Memory Keeping (Scrapbooking/Project Life). We all take photos right? Well, capturing every day moments is so special and we need to document these to cherish. We are all passionate about memory keeping and we want to continue to inspire each other, and you, as we move forward in 2016!

First up I have a traditional scrapbook page of a favourite photo from last Christmas. I have used the Words of Truth stamp set on this page, along with the Everyday Chic Designer Series Paper

Stampin Up Scrapbook Page 2015 Claire Daly Australia. Using Words of Truth stamp set and Everyday Chic DSP.

 

I have white embossed the title (be sure to use the embossing buddy when embossing white on black). Then I stamped the other phrases from the set and used them as journalling. For some additional journalling I downloaded a free typewriter font, and used that on a spare journalling card. I've also added an antique brad and a spare wooden heart I had leftover from a card kit.

You will LOVE the Words of Truth stamp set by Stampin' Up!. Just use the title or item number 139397 in the search box in  my online store (red button top right column).

I also have another page to show you form the Project Life New York album I am working on. The Project Life by Stampin' Up! Let's Get Away Card Collection is awesome for travel pages!

I love how easy it is to tell your story as you go with Project Life. Just pop in the journalling cards and write away. I also use punches to cut out bits of other cards to add additional bits and pieces to the cards sometimes (such as the punched out world shape centre top.

Here is a closer look at the Project Life by Stampin' Up! Card Collection, Accessory Pack and coordinating stamp set. All of these can be purchased in my online store (red button top right) under the Project Life section.

Art With Heart Team September Blog Hop: Showcasing the 2015 Holiday Catalogue

Awht blog hop start

It's time to show you how clever the girls in my team are! We have lots of lovely friendly dies who love to create and share the Stampin' Up! journey with you. Today we are sharing creations from the 2015 Holiday Catalogue, with lots of Christmas crafting goodies.

My card uses Sleigh Ride Edgelits and I have to tell you it was inspired by a very lovely international demo friend of mine, Amy Koenders.

Aren't these dies amazing? They are so intricate, but I still found they cut out great with just my metallic plate even with the glimmer paper.

The Edgelits also have a matching stamp set, which I really like because the words are curved, to match the curves in the dies. It's called Jingle All The Way. You can buy the Sleigh Ride Edgelits and Jingle All the Way Stamp set in a bundle as well and save 15% (Item 140862 for clear mount and item  140861 for wood mount).

I have used a few different sets, but the main one is the new Words of Truth stamp set in the 2015 Annual Catalogue. It's perfect for all things male and teens and lots more. I've also used Gorgeous Grunge and Banner Banter (which coordinated with the Banner Punch). Here's the inside of the card which shows some more of the Words of Truth stamp set (all except the Happy Fathers Day sentiment re from Words of Truth). Love the Everyday Chic Washi Tape too!

My next project is for my Father in Law (my own Father has sadly passed away). For this card I used the Guy Greetings Stamp set, another fabulous choice for male cards.

Fathers Day 2

 

My colours are Mint Macaron and Early Espresso I love the shoes sentiment in this Guy Greetings set.

Stampin' Up! Lots of Joy for the Art With Heart Christmas in July Blog Hop

It's Christmas in July! Can you smell the hint of brandy in the steamed plum pudding - yummmm. Ok so I got a little distracted there! Today some of my Art with Heart Stampin' Up! team girls are presenting some fabulous Christmas projects to inspire you.

Start

This year we already have new Christmas sets to play with in the 2015 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue, and some old favourites too. We also have a brand new 2015 Holiday catalogue coming soon. If you would like a copy of any of our catalogues, to attend a Stampin' Up! class or join a large fabulous group of crafty women by becoming part of the team (hobby demonstrators welcome), be sure to contact me.

If you are not just starting the blog hop, you would have come to me from my lovely team member and friend Kayleen McClean.

My first project is a gift card holder. These are great little holders and the best bit is you can make 3 from an A4 sheet of cardstock.

The belly band slides off and it opens up for a gift card holder.

Lots of Joy AWHT July hop 4

Here are the step by step instructions to make the gift card holder:

  1. Cut a piece of A4 cardstock in 3 vertically so you end up with 3 pieces 7cm wide x 29.7cm long.
  2. Using the largest Framelit from the Lots of Labels Framelit set, cut the rounded edge as shown in the photo below.
  3. Starting from the straight end, score at 8cm and 12cm.
  4. Using a 2" Circle punch,  cut a semi circle in the straight end.
  5. Emboss the 8cm long piece with the semi circle (I used the Lucky Stars Embossing Folder)
  6. Cut a piece of Stampin' Up! Tear and Tape in half vertically (so you have two thinner strips). Use these to adhere the embossed pieces down to create the pouch. If you keep the tape the same width it's a bit of a tight fit for the card, but this fits and holds just fine.
  7. Cut a piece of DSP using the second smallest Lots of Labels Framelit and use that to decorate the front of the flap.
  8. Then just create your belly band and decoration. I used a 2 3/8" Scallop Punch, The Christmas Tree Punch, Lots of Joy and Festival of Trees Stamp Sets, Gold Glimmer Paper and Merry Moments DSP.

Here's how I cut the curved end using the largest label Framelit.

My second share today is a centre step Christmas card, again using the Lots of Labels Framelits and Lots of Joy stamp set.

I got the idea for the Gold Glimmer circle (made by punching the 2" circle punch first, and 2.5" circle punch around the outside) from my lovely demo fried Linda Higgins. The teeny glimmer stars are cut with the Confetti Stars border punch.

End
