Stampin' Up! Southern Serenade Vintage Birthday Card

Welcome to April friends, and blessed Easter Wishes to you and your family.

 

What's happening in Stampin' Up! in April?

Next weekend, demonstrators around the globe will be gathering at OnStage events for the unveiling of the 2018/19 Annual Catalogue, which will be available for customers during May for a June 1st start (to register your interest in receiving a catalogue when they become available, go here). I will be heading to Sydney with lots of my team which will be lots of fun and excitement. This year will be even more fun, as it's Stampin' Up!'s 30th Anniversary and we are celebrating like it's 1988.

I'll be able to tell you all about the OnStage event, and give you some sneak peeks from Tuesday April 10th.

To catch some bits and pieces of the fun that I can show earlier, make sure you are following me on Facebook and Instagram.

I can't wait to bring you the fun and excitement of OnStage!

Being the start of the month, we also have a new monthly hostess code to use with online orders. Pop this code in when your are prompted in your order, and you will qualify for a small free gift mid May.

Today's Card

Today I have a vintage style birthday card for you, using one of the lovely stamp sets from the Occasions Catalogue called Southern Serenade. Sometimes we miss these stand alone stamp sets while we focus on bundles, but this stamp set is too pretty to miss. I particularly like its vintage style and the beautiful fine lace image.

Southern Serenade

I have used Shimmery White to stamp on, and Crumb Cake for the stamping of the lace images. I have stamped the floral image in Basic Black Archival and coloured with watercolour pencils.

This stamp set comes with some lovely accompanying images of the lace and smaller floral images, as well as three very versatile sentiments. It's a great one to add to your collection of stamps and is available in clear mount and wood (see links below). The 'Happy Birthday' and 'Thank You' greeting also fit nicely inside the Pretty Label Punch.

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great day!

Blossoming Basket

I used the Stampin Blends in Crumb Cake, Pink Pirouette and Rich Razzleberry to colour the image (after stamping with Memento Black). My cardstock colours are Crumb Cake, Powder Pink and Shimmery White.

BASKET sab

My greeting is from At Home With You, as I wanted a very small greeting and I love the font in this set. I have used coordinating Powder Pink ribbon as well.  I love how the ribbon coordinates in so well with the Stampin' Blends colours as well.

The die cuts and many of the embellishments have silver foiled touches to them for extra wow factor. I also LOVE the scalloped velvet Marina Mist ribbon in the kit.

Stampin' Up! All Inclusive Lots of Happy Cardmaking Kit

All inclusive kits are one of the first things I always seem to be attracted to in new catalogues, and the lots of Happy Kit in the Stampin' Up! 2018 Occasions Catalogue is no exception. I think I love the kits because I can grab them and sit at the kitchen table, or even the lounge coffee table and have everything I need in the cute little box, rather than sitting away from the family while I craft. I also love the simplicity and the variety in the kits.

This kit contains everything you need to make 20 cards (envelopes included too) with 4 each of 5 designs. There is a full colour leaflet showing how each card is put together. It even includes the pencils for the colouring. You can also buy refills for the kits too.

Guest Stampin' Up! Blogger Ros Davidson showcasing Fabulous Flamingo

This week I am having a few days family time, so I have asked a couple of my long term Art With Heart team members to be guest bloggers. 

Today we have Ros Davidson, who celebrated her 10 year anniversary with my team and Stampin' Up! in September 2017. Ros is my longest serving team member and is a fabulous friend, as well as being super creative at both memory keeping and card making.  Ros has been running Stampin' Up! classes for many years in Skye (south east suburb of Melbourne). If you live close by, check out the fabulous range of classes Ros offers.

Make sure you also head over to Ros's blog to check out her amazing creations!

Here's Ros's guest post:

Hi, I’m Ros Davidson and while Claire is off enjoying some family time I have jumped at the chance to guest blog for you today. I am sharing a fabulous flamingo card which I really enjoyed making and had a go at making a stepped up version also. 

Using the palm tree leaf stamp from fabulous flamingo, I created my own designer series paper stamping in tranquil tide, emerald envy and lemon lime twist onto whisper white cardstock.


Stampin Up Fabulous Flamingo

The basic version of the card works great for many occasions as no sentiment has been added. I can see it as a new baby girl card, for you card, happy birthday card and much more.

The stepped up version has gold embossing for a touch of added class along with a birthday sentiment and metallic enamel shapes.

I’ve carried the hand stamped designer series paper inside the card and finished it off with stamps from confetti celebration stamp set.

Thanks Claire for the chance to share my creations with your readers.
