Stampin' Up! Flying Home Stamp Set with Stampin' Blends

Today's shares feature some coloured images from the new Flying Home stamp set in the Stampin' Up! 2018 Occasions Catalogue. This is a super cute set of line drawn images which are just perfect for colouring.

I stamped my images in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, onto Thick Whisper White cardstock as I planned to colour with Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers. I used Light Old Olive, Light and Dark Crumb Cake, Light Pink Pirouette, Light and Dark Pool Party and Light Calypso Coral.

I did two different designs, with the coloured images cut out either with the circle or square Stitched Shape Framelits.

The diecut I have used is from the Petals and More Thinlit Dies.  I tried it in Soft Sky and Crumb Cake, but I think I like the Soft Sky versions best.

I did a bit of a watercolour wash in Soft Sky around the coloured image to soften some of the white space.

I wanted the coloured images to be the focus of these cards, so I just went for a really small simple greeting from the At Home With You stamp set. I love the font in the greetings in this set.

Stampin' Up! Beautiful Peacock with copper embossing

Good morning everyone. Today's share is another take on the Stampin' Up! 2018 Saleabration stamp set Beautiful Peacock. I wanted to get a bit more elaborate with those beautiful plumes. Don't forget you can earn this stamp set free during Saleabration (or other choices instead) when you spend $90 during Saleabration. Learn more about Saleabration here.

I've combined Emerald Envy, Powder Pink and Copper Embossing plumes with the main Tranquil Tide stamping of the peacock. I also added in some copper embellishments, which I made by colouring adhesive pearls with the Bronze Stampin Blends alcohol marker.

Here's the colour combination I have used today (in addition to the copper embossing). The Tranquil Tide felt bow embellishment was a perfect finish for this card.

Stampin' Up! Picture Perfect Party 6x6" paper pack meets Party Pandas stamp set

There are some beautiful bright happy paper packs in the Stampin' Up! 2018 Occasions Catalogue, but I think this Picture Perfect Party 6x6" pack of 48 sheets might be my favourite. There are 12 great 6x6" double sided designs, one side photo-realistic designs (doughnuts anyone?) and the other side more bright coordinating patterns. As with all our papers, they coordinate perfectly with our ink and cardstock. Each paper pack has the coordinating colours on the back wrapper (and it's also listed in the catalogue). 

The coordinating colours for the Picture Perfect Party DSP are: Basic Black, Bermuda Bay, Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist, Peekaboo Peach, Pool Party and Whisper White.

Picture Perfect Party DSP

I've used the paper in the bottom row, third from left in this card, as well as two of this years free Saleabration items, Party Pandas stamp set, and Celebrate You thinlits.

My coordinating cardstock is Pool Party, and my embellishments the silver trim Berry Burst ribbon from the Occasions Catalogue (so yummmyyy). I've also added in some of the Tutti Frutti adhesive backed sequins, and a die cut word from the Celebrate You thinlits. There's also a few bits of the Silver Bakers Twine tied around the knot in the ribbon.

For the Party Pandas, I have stamped in Memento Black, and then coloured in parts of the hat in Dark Pink Pirouette and Light Pool Party. I also water-coloured the bodies a little with Smokey Slate (making sure not to go too close to the stamped image or it would have smudged).

Stampin' Up! Australia: Beautiful Peacock for Saleabration 2018

Today's share is another Stampin' Up! Saleabration 2018 product which can be earned for free. This time it's the Beautiful Peacock stamp set. I have also used the Celbrate You Thinlits again (told you they were versatile!).

Stampin' Up! Beautiful Peacock  card by Claire Daly Stampin Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia. #peacockstamp #occasions2018 #stampinupcards2018 #clairedaly #stampinupaustralia

This is a super easy set to line up (it's photopolymer so use a foam stamping mat underneath when you stamp)  and can be used in many different ways. I wanted quite a simple card today, so I just added some embossing from the Petal Pair embossing folder duo (in Occasions Catalogue) and the Celebrate Youdie cuts. To get the different colours on the feathers, I used a sponge dauber to sponge on a little Bermuda Bay to the feathers stamp that I had already inked up with Lemon Lime Twist.

I also wanted to show you a great trick that was demonstrated at the OnStage training event (another great perk of being a demonstrator) by Brandi, one of our US based trainers. Excuse the photos on these ones, as they were pictures of the video screen.

Brandi started out with the Beautiful Peacock, and it's tail stamped in different colours. This would make a great card by itself, but Brandi wanted to add a real WOW. So she went a couple more steps.

She used some of the Calypso Coral Shimmer Ribbon (available with 2 other colours as a free level 1 pick in the Saleabration catalogue, but we also have some in other colours in the Annual Catalogue) and pulled the shimmer thread in the ribbon to be ended with a fabulous frayed section of ribbon perfect for a peacocks tail. You can tie one end together securely using the thread you pulled out.

Here's how it looks added to the card with a few extra embellishments.

Stampin' Up! Party Pandas stamp set and Celebrate You Thinlits for Saleabration 2018 - Earn them FREE

Today I have a super fun card to show you using two products from the Saleabration 2018 catalogue. You can earn both the Party Panda stamp set and Celebrate You Thinlits die for FREE during Saleabration (along with lots of other choices). Read how HERE.

Stampin Up Party Panda card by Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia. #saleabration2018 #partypandas #stampinup #stampinupaustralia #celebrateyouthinlits #petalpairembossingfolder

Isn't the panda the cutest? For the panda body, I added a teeny bot of colour with an aqua-painter picking up some of the ink inside the lid of my Smokey Slate ink pad. I then coloured parts of the party hat with the Calypso Coral Stampin' Blends marker. I then cut this shape out with my 2" circle punch.

My main card base is Bermuda Bay, and I have used one of the Petal Pair Embossing Folders (I used the other one in the set in my last blog post). I really like tis one as it kind of looks like the panda is up a tree! To get the window, I cut a 1 and 3/4" circle in the top half of the card, towards the left side. I positioned the panda piece beneath this window and adhered with snail adhesive.

To make the window border, I cut a circle from a scrap of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock, and then used the Starburst punch around the outside (it's much easier to get it the right shape if you cut the inside circle first like this). I then adhered this around the outside of the circle.

To finish the card, I added the word from the Celebrate You Thinlits (earn them as a level 2 choice during Saleabration), and some adhesive rhinestones. A pretty simple card, but I like how it turned out.
