I have used the Affectionately Yours Designer Series Paper (loved the copper foiling in this paper) - This product is retiring, but still available until sold out in the retiring products section of my Stampin' Up! Online Store. I have used the paper piecing technique for the dress, and a block pattern on a later of Crumb Cake cardstock as the second layer on the card. See the links at the end of the post for the remaining products I have used (the greeting is from Oh So Succulent stamp set).

Oh So Succulent Stamp Set from Stampin' Up! - Perfect for Garden Lovers!

I'm all over this fabulous Oh So Succulent stamp set in the 2017 Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalogue! I love container gardening, and last year while visiting my in laws in NSW (who have an amazing cottage garden surrounding their renovated church home), I got lot of cuttings and started some succulent pots for myself. I love how hardy they are, but they also add great variations in texture and foliage colour to my garden. I love that I can now send succulent cards to my garden loving friends.

I watercoloured the outline images using a Blender Pen and then cut them out with paper snips. I used the watercolour pencils for some colours (Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry) and the inside of ink ads for others (Mint Macaron and Wild Wasabi). You can view and link to the online store for all of the products I have used today at the end of the post. My pot is just a 2" circle punched shape (in Sweet Sugarplum) cut in half and then a tiny bit cut off the bottom.

Faux Silk 2016 Christmas Card using Stampin' Up! Holly Berry Happiness

Hello stampers, I'm back to Christmas cards today. The faux silk stamping technique (described below) makes a great textured background for Christmas cards. It's super simple to do so you could easily do a few at a time. I have used Holly Berry Happiness stamp set from the 2016 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue, which worked really well for the repetitive effect I wanted.

My colours are Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green, with gold in the embossed greeting (also from the Holly Berry Happiness stamp set) and coiled twine under the greeting.

Faux Silk Technique Instructions:

  1. Cut a piece of tissue paper a couple of centimeters (or an inch if you are metric) larger than the cardstock you are adhering it to. My tissue paper is adhered to a piece of Whisper White in the image above.
  2. Stamp your images over the tissue paper. Allow to dry a couple of minutes.
  3. Screw the tissue paper up in a tight ball, and then very carefully unravel the paper. Smooth it out but not completely as you still want a few creases left.
  4. Using a glue-stick, apply glue all over the cardstock piece you are going to adhere the tissue paper to.
  5. Adhere the tissue paper, leaving a few creases as shown. Wrap the excess tissue paper around to the back of the cardstock and adhere with the glue-stick (this gives a neater finish than trimming).

That' all there is to it! Easy isn't it?

Here's a closer look at the Holly Berry Happiness stamp set (you can view all of the products I have used today by using my online store product links at the end of the post).

Collage Stamping Technique and ATC Swap using Stampin' Up! In This World Stamp Set

One of the great things we do on my Art With Heart Stampin' Up! team Facebook group is a monthly ATC stamping technique share. It's great for our hobby and business demos to get involved in and really fun to share with team members right across Australia when we get our swap ATCs back in the mail.

Last month's technique was collage stamping, and the In This World stamp set from the 2016 Annual Catalogue was perfect for the technique. I also decided to make a card to go with the ATC.

My Stampin' Up! colours are Crumb Cake, Mint Macaron, Soft Suede, Early Espresso and I have also added some Copper Embossing (the butterfly on the ATC, and ink splotches on the card). It's super easy to create this effect with just layers of stamping on a Very Vanilla background.

I really love the vintage look of the stamps in this set. I think this set would be great for male cards as well.

Here's a closer look at the In This World stamp set. Isn't it fabulous? I'll definitely be looking at other ways to use this vintage / antique inspired stamp set.
