Panda

Doesn't he just scream 'happy'? To create the silver glimmer circle I just used two Layering Circle Framelit dies.  I chose my colour palette based on the Designer Paper I have used, which is the Bubbles and Fizz Designer Series Paper in the Saleabration catalogue. I love the bright happy colours in this paper - Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Lemon Lime Twist. The cute bubble stamps come from the Bubble Over Stamp Set which is a new one in the Occasions Catafalque that coordinates with the Saleabration paper.

Stampin' Up! Just Add Color DSP with Stampin' Blends

 

A few weeks ago I had a play doing some colouring with the new Stampin' Up! Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. Instead of colouring stamped images, I used some 6x6 pieces of Just Add Color Specialty Designer Series Paper. his is a heavy weight paper already printed with lots of great images, and the Stampin' Blends work beautifully with it.

I recently turned the colouring into cards, and here's what I came up with.

Colours in this one are Smokey Slate base card, with Pool Party and Calypso Coral. I used the Pool Party, Old Olive and Calypso Coral Stampin' Blends, and finished off with some Smoky Slate Gingham Ribbon (just LOVING this ribbon recently).

This one was Smoky Slate base, with Pool Party, Smoky Slate and Old Olive Stampin' Blends. My greeting is from Window Shopping stamp set.

For the label, I extended the length of the Everyday Label punch, and popped an embossed circle behind for some balance. Like how that turned out. I think this one migt be a good card for a male family member or friend.

I love succulents and was happy how this one turned out. Base card is Old Olive embossed with Petal Burst embossing folder. I have used Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, Pool Party and Smoky Slate Stampin' Write Markers.

Art with Heart October Team Blog Hop: Patterned Paper

Today it's time for out Art with Heart team monthly blog hop.

Tonight the Art with Heart 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!

Today I am showcasing the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper, which is just beautiful. I have made a card and a double page scrapbook layout using the papers. Lets start with the card.

The sunflower paper is probably my favourite sheet in the 12 double sided paper pack. I love the colours in it, and it coordinates well with the Painted Harvest stamp set. I have used the three leaf stamp (coordinates with the new Leaf Punch too) for some extra foliage. My other flower is just cut from the patterned paper. My greeting is from Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stamp Set and is stamped on Early Espresso onto a Very Vanilla circle cut from the Stitched Shape Framelit.

This picture shows some additional texture I added with the burlap ribbon and gold mini sequin trim.

Next up we have the double 12x12 traditional scrapbook page. This paper is amazing for nature photos and as it has the colours of the sky and plants and flowers in it. Some of the papers in this pack are definitely great for base pages as well, then you have all the other coordinating papers to embellish (I just used a total of three of the patterns in this page).

This was a memory I definitely wanted to record. Our first visit back to Marysville since the town was wiped out and many people died in the 2009 bushfires. It was great to see the town was rebuilding and to see the beautiful statue in the park about new beginnings.

Stampin' Up! Beautiful You and Lemon Lime Twist with Embossing Paste

It was a grey drizzly day in Melbourne today (it's late winter here), so I needed a bright card to show you. 

I think this one works! I find myself coming back often to use this happy image from the Beautiful You stamp set. It's applicable to so many different cards  I think, but especially congratulations cards.

Stampin Up Beautiful You stamp set, lemon Lime Twist and embossing paste. Card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

My colour combination is Lemon Lime Twist and Pacific Point. I added some texture to the Lemon Lime Twist layer by using some embossing paste coloured with Lemon Lime Twist re-inker, and then used the diamond mask from the Pattern Party Decorative Masks. My image is coloured using the watercolour pencils. I used a greeting for the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set which fits beautifully in the Classic Label Punch.

Stampin' Up! Heartland Birthday and Thinking of You cards.

I love this gorgeous image in the Heartland stamp set. In fact as a country girl at heart (I was born in the wheatbelt of Western Australia and lived on farms until my late teens), this whole stamp set really jumped out at me in the 2017/18 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue.

Stampin Up Heartland Thinking of You and male  birthday card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

It was the perfect image for my father in laws birthday card, and I also made a ''thinking of you' card to send to my Mum, as I think this image will really appeal to her as well.

For my Mum's card, I also wanted to try out my new Marbled Background stamp (stamped in Emerald Envy onto an Emerald Envy layer on a Dapper Denim card base). I watercoloured the image (stamped onto a piece of Shimmery White cut from the Stitched Shapes framelits) using the Stampin' Up! watercolour pencils.

To finish my card, I added a few simple embellishments: a leaf die cut from Eclectic Layers thinlits that I had lying around in my 'bits and pieces' bowl, some of the Dapper Denim washi tape from the Basic 3 Washi Tape and one of the Touches of Nature wooden elements.

For the birthday card I embossed the Emerald Envy layer using the Polka Dot basics embossing folder (note that the image in the catalogue is incorrect for this folder, the dots are actually further spaced as shown here).  The image was coloured the same, but stamped onto one of the circle Stitched Shapes Thinlits. For my embellishments I have added some Burlap Trim and Linen Thread, with some gold metallic shapes. I have used the Happy Birthday greeting from Happy Birthday gorgeous which is a great fit for the Pretty Label punch.

Here's a closer look at the Heartland stamp set (available in wood mount or clear mount red rubber) and the Basics Washi Tape #3 pack. I find this a great combo set because it has 5 different blues to coordinate with all your projects! We also have a green set of 5, pink set of 5 and black and white themed set.

If you are a country girl like me, or enjoy watercolouring, Heartland is a great stamp set for you!
