Hello paper crafters, it's Garden Green week with the AWHT Colour Creations team this week.

I often find colour combination inspiration in our Designer Series Papers, and this week is no exception. I love this fun Santa's Workshop Designer Series Paper. I have picked out the colour combination of Garden Green, Pool Party and Real Red for my greeting layers, to coordinate with the paper. The stamp set I used is Making Spirits Bright from the Stampin' Up! 2018 Holiday Catalogue. All products are available to purchase in my Online Stampin' Up! store.

This stamp set has some really bright (excuse the pun) and happy greetings and I really like the circle stamp too. I'm happy with how this crd turned out. The elf paper is so cute and the Pool Party really lifts and brightens the Garden Green.

Heart of Christmas Week 2 - Christmas creations brought to you by the Art With Heart Stampin' Up! Team, Australia

Heart of Christmas HOC picture

It's time for another Christmas card creation, for week 2 of Heart of Christmas with the Art With Heart Stampin' Up! Team. Today I am playing with wire copper embellishments and a beautiful foiled accent Designer Series Paper called Joyous Noel, from the upcoming 2018 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue.

I have used Merry Merlot for my card base (which just happens to also be what I'm drinking while I blog after dinner, but that's another story ….). I have also used a new embossing folder which will be in the Holiday catalogue, called Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The Joyous Noel paper is very beautiful with coordinating colours of Copper Foil, Gray Granite, Merry Merlot, Sahara Sand, Soft Suede, Tranquil Tide and Whisper White. You will also spy a gorgeous new reversible Merry Merlot ribbon coming soon!

The wire star is one of the new Holiday Catalogue embellishments, but I have used a couple of other embellishments here too. The embellishment at the centre of the star is one of the large metallic brads (on page 198 of the 2018 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue) with an adhesive pearl in the centre. I have also used small pearls coloured with a Bronze Metallic sharpie on the greeting panel. The greeting is from Itty Bitty greetings stamp set, and the label is from the Bunch of Banners Framelits.  You can view the links for the current products at the end of this post. The other products will be available in the online store September 5th. Get a Holiday Catalogue HERE, or Sign Up and choose any of the new Holiday Catalogue products in your starter kit TODAY!

Week 10 AWH Stampin' Up! Team Colour Creations Blog Hop: Calypso Coral

It' great to be able to start participating more regularly in my team blog hops. Today is the AWH Team Colour Creations Blog Hop and our colour of the week is Calypso Coral.

CC Calypso

Calypso Coral is a beautiful mid strength coral colour, making it super versatile. It's one of the key colours in the Tea Room suite in the 2018 Annual Stampin' Up! Catalogue, so I have used a the designer series paper and copper vinyl stickers from that suite in today's card. My base card colour is Coastal Cabana.

Stampin Up Blended Seasons Card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demo Melbourne Australia

I have used the Blended Season bundle for the stamp and Framelits, as they are limited edition products only available this  month. I really love the stamp set because it's great for colouring and has really versatile images and greetings. The Framelits are really unique too in that when you.  cut the stitched shape, the negative shape also has stitching on it. I think these products are a great investment. They are only available to purchase this month, and you can find them HERE IN MY ONLINE STORE.

I coloured my image using the Old Olive and Calypso Coral Stampin' Blends Markers. I love how easy it is to blend the colour with these alcohol markers, and of course they perfectly coordinate with all the Stampin' Up! colours. To embellish my card, I have used the Tea Room Copper Vinyl Stickers, and an artisan pearl. The butterfly is one of the stickers, which I just stuck onto a scrap of Shimmery White cardstock and cut out with paper snips.

Stampin' Up! fancy fold Share What You Love suite card

Hello crafters. Happy Monday!

Today I have a fancy fold card for you. I was inspired to make this card when I saw a lovely sample my team member Ros Davidson shared on our team forum.

Stampin Up fancy fold 2018 Share What You Love suite card by Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

When the belly band comes off, the card opens to an area you can write your greeting. 

Stampin Up fancy fold 2018 Share What You Love suite card by Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

The Share What You Love Designer Series Paper is perfect for this fancy fold, because it is cardstock weight. It also has beautiful patterns and lots of coordinating colours which makes it super versatile. The actual fold is super simple. Here is what I did:

  1. I started with a piece of DSP 12" x 6"
  2. I scored at 2", 4", 8" and 10" on the long side.
  3. I marked a spot with a pencil at the halfway mark of the shortest side (3")
  4. I cut on the diagonal from that spot on the left hand edge, to the top of the 4" score line, and from the top of the 8" score line to the half way spot on the right hand edge.
  5. Then just fold as shown. So easy!

I love the matching embellishments in the suite as well, because this makes getting a coordinated finish really easy.

5 Cards for males with the retiring True Gentleman Product Suite

Another of my much loved product suites in the 2018 Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalogue, has been the True Gentleman suite of products. I really liked the deep rich masculine colours in the Designer Series Paper (and coordinating cardstock pack), the fabulous textured  Night of Navy Corduroy Ribbon, and the True Gentleman wooden buttons (the buttons are the only one of these consumable products carrying over to the new catalogue).

Capture

The coordinating bundle to this stamp set is the Truly Tailored Bundle. While the stamp set ISN'T Carrying over, the Tailored Tag Punch is, and there is a lovely new stamp set that it coordinates with which I will show you very soon. Here is the Truly Tailored Bundle which is available while stocks last until May 31st. Check out the links at the end of the post to grab these products before they retire.
