Wedding Card for SB113 using Happy Happenings from Stampin' Up!

Hello.

Something a little different today - a wedding card. This week's Stamping and Blogging Sketch 113 and the new Stampin' Up! sentiment stamp set I received last week called Happy Happenings, were the base for my card.

Lots of bits and pieces on this one and you will be able to view all of these products in the links below. Happy Happenings is going to be a favourite sentiment set for sure. I love the funky font and that it coordinates with one of my favourite punches, the Label Bracket punch (used for the sentiment on this card).

I think a wedding card needs a bit of bling, so I have added some gold printed vellum, gold glimmer paper, gold foil punched hearts and some gold metallic thread. The little wooden heart embellishment I have used is from the Watercolor Wishes card kit.

Here is the sketch Sandi gave us to play with this week:

Stampin' Up! Sweet L'il One for SB112

There are some super cute new baby sets in the Stampin' Up! 2015 Annual Catalogue and today we are playing with Sweet L'il One for the Stamping and Blogging Design Team sketch SB112.

Stampin Up Sweet L'il One Stamp Set, Sweet L'il Things DSP & Washi for SB112 by Claire Daly SU Demo Australia

It's a super sweet set and the matching Sweet Li'l Things Designer Paper and Washi Tape have fabulous colours and designs for baby and toddler cards. LOVE the colours in them. Picking out a couple of colours from the DSP for your stamping (in this case Tip Top Taupe and Pool Party) makes it so easy to create coordinating cards.

I have a bit of a star thing going on here too. The 'It's a Boy' greeting was designed to fit into our new Medium Star Punch, and the small stars are from the very versatile Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack. As usual you can view all the products used today by using the links at the bottom of the post. Here's a closer look at the Sweet L'il One Stamp Set:

Christmas in July - Stampin' Up! Lots of Joy for SB111

Today is the first of July, and a fun time to celebrate Christmas in July in Australia where we can enjoy all the winter Christmas treats and experiences that are enjoyed in the Northern Hemisphere at Christmas. I'm celebrating with my first blog Christmas card for the year for the Stamping and Blogging Design Team.

Stampin Up Lots of Joy Christmas card by Claire Daly Melbourne Australia for SB111.

Lots of Joy is one of the new Christmas sets in the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. I love it because:

  • The plaid reminds me of Scotland where my Grandparents are from.
  • It has three great greetings
  • Images coordinate with the 1.5" circle, 1" square and Christmas tree punches (see links at end of post)
  • It has a lot of great coordinating colours: Real Red, Mossy Meadow, Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler.
  • It's a great way to use the long lines of rhinestones in the adhesive rhinestone packs! Line them up with the stripes and you have adhesive tinsel :)

Lots of Joy

Stampin' Up! Timeless Elegance and One Big Meaning for SB108

Hello friends.

Today I get to share one of my favourite products from the new 2015 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue with you, this beautiful 12x12 paper pack called Timeless Elegance. Oh my goodness, how beautiful is it? Reminds me of an old English cottage somewhere sunny and peaceful. I just wanted to use it on a card straight out of the pack as there were so many beautiful designs on the pages. I think I managed to use 4 different sheets here. Today's card is for the Stamping and Blogging Design Team weekly sketch, SB108. Don't forget you can play along with the sketch now too and link your image (more details at the end of the post).

Stampin Up Timeless Elegance DSP and One Big Meaning Stamp Set for SB108 by Claire Daly, Australia at www.clairedaly.typepad.com

The coordinating colours given for this 12x12 double sided paper pack (there's 12 sheets, 2 each of 6 designs) are Sahara Sand, Basic Black and Very Vanilla. I found Tip Top Taupe is a great coordinating colour and I have used Blushing Bride as my pink. I have stamped directly onto one pattern of the paper, used another pattern for the scallop mat, another under the lace and twine, and that final beautiful rose pattern for the main layer. I have seen some lovely cards where the roses have been coloured with sponge daubers and ink, but I thought I'd start with them 'a la natural today'.

You might also spy one of the new adhesive metal rimmed pearls (these are flat back) in the centre of my flower. My greeting is from a great new thankyou set called One Big Meaning. You can view all the products I have used today in the links below.

Stampin' Up! Amazing Birthday for SB107

Hello! I was so inspired by Sandi's gold and Mint Macaron colour scheme in last weeks Stamping and Blogging Design Team card, that I had to try out the same. I've used Stampin' Up!'s Amazing Birthday stamp set for this week's card.

Stampin up amazing birthday handmade birthday card by Claire Daly Melbourne Australia

I have to be honest, apart from the colour scheme, I really struggled getting the balance on this card right. In the end the only way I was remotely happy was to shorten the card a bit.

Here's the colour scheme which was inspired by Sandi MacIver (links to her two blogs below).
