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! Snowflake Sentiments for Art With Heart team HOC 24

Hello ladies. Today the Art with Heart Team is bringing you week 24 of Heart of Christmas.

Graphic

Today's card is created using the Snowflake Sentiments bundle from the 2017 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue. I really like the simplicity of this card.

Stampin Up Snowflake Sentiments stamp set and Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits. Christmas card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

Before I cut the snowflakes, I created a watercolour wash using Pool Party and Island Indigo ink on watercolor paper. Once it was throughly dry (with the help of my trusty heat tool), I cut the snowflakes from pieces which had variations in colour (tip: the biggest snowflake is from the border die piece and 'detached' with paper snips). Then it was just a matter of attaching them with a glue dot and embellishing with Glimmer Dots and adhesive Rhinestones. My greeting from Snowflake Sentiments is heat embossed in silver.

Stampin' Up! Hearts Come Home for Heart of Christmas #23

Hello ladies, time for this week's Heart of Christmas inspiration post bought to you by the Art with Heart team.

Graphic

This week I have used up a left over piece from the Hometown Greetings Edgelit dies in the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue. It just fitted into the largest oval shape from the Layering Ovals Framelits.

Stampin Up Hearts Come Home and Hometown Edgelits Christmas Card 2017. Card by Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

I have watercoloured the piece of watercolor paper behind the edgelits using Island Indigo ink. When that was dry I stamped the sleigh in Island Indigo, and placed it behind the card which I had embossed with the Softly Falling embossing folder. My greeting is from Merry Patterns, and then finished off with some Night of Navy crinkled seam binding.

Art with Heart Team Stampin Up Heart of Christmas 2017: Week 12 and another Holiday Catalogue Sneak Peek

Hello lovely friends, Wednesday again so it's Heart of Christmas day for the Art with Heart team. We are now up to week 12.

Graphic

 

Today I am showcasing some beautiful new papers in the upcoming Holiday catalogue: The Year of Cheer Designer Series Paper, and the Champagne Foil sheets.

Year of cheer 1

 

These papers are a bit hard to photograph, but they have beautiful lux foiled designs in gold, copper, silver and champagne. I have teamed them with Fresh Fig and Whisper White cardstock and a reindeer from the Santa's Sleigh Thinlits. My embellishments are the Fresh Fig ribbon, copper metallic thread and Itty Bitty Bows. I didn't think this card needed a greeting on the front, as I wanted the beautiful papers to shine (excuse the pun!) on their own.

Year of Cheer 2

 

Lets jump over and see what my Art with Heart team girls have created today shall we?
