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.

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! Saleabration Catalogue Sneak Peek - Party Pandas

A little sneak peek for you today. The new 2018 Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalogue and Saleabration promotion kick off on January 3rd (get your paper copies HERE)

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! Merry Music Specialty DSP for Art with Heart Team HOC26

Hello and thanks for stopping by today. Today is the second last week of my Art with Heart team girls Heart of Christmas series for 2017. This is week 26.

Graphic

It's getting to the point where many people are in need of super quick and easy Christmas cards which can easily be done in a batch, and this week's card definitely fits this criteria. 

2017 Christmas card using peace This Christmas stamp set, Merry Music DSP, Merry Little Christmas DSP. Card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

You need three pieces of coordinating DSP. I have used Merry Music Specialty DSP and Merry Little Christmas DSP but you could use any coordinating papers. The base card is 1/2 A$ cardstock cut vertically to make a standard C6 top folding card. The measurements for each piece of DSP are:

  • Left: 1 13/16" wide by 5 5/8" long or 4.6cm x 14.2cm
  • Top right: 2" wide x 3.5" long or 5.1cm x 8,8cm
  • Bottom right: 2" wide x 2" long; or 5.1cm x 5.1cm

The centre circle is 2.5" diameter and the stamped greeting is rom one of the Christmas sets in the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue, Peace This Christmas. I have used a variety of embellishments around the greetings including Metallic Enamel Shapes, Glitter Enamel Shapes and Adhesive Rhinestone Jewels. For the Silver Mini Sequin Trim, you need about 30-35cm under each circle.

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.

For my last card I have used Pink Pirouette, Calypso Coral, Smoky Slate, Old Olive and Daffodil Delight Stampin Blends, on a Pool Party base card. My greeting here is from Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set.

Stampin' Up! Year of Cheer DSP for Art with Heart team Heart of Christmas #25

Hello ladies, it's time to bring you this week's Heart of Christmas inspiration piece.

Graphic

Today my card is based on the foiled specialty paper Year of Cheer. This is a beautiful paper for Christmas and has silver, platinum, gold and copper foiling through it.  My greeting is from the Hearts Come Home stamp set and is embossed in Copper to match the small piece of Year of Cheer DSP underneath. The base card is Crumb Cake.

The largest circle is cut from Platinum foil paper (in the Holiday Catalogue) with the 2 & 1/4" punch and the smaller circle which has the greeting on it is cut with the 1 & 3/4" circle punch. Other than that it's just a bit of silver mini sequin trim.
