Stampin' Up! Time for Tea

There's something about a cup of tea isn't there? I think it makes me instantly thing of relaxing, soothing and happy catch ups. I think it's because of this association that I always tend to be drawn to any creative supplies with a tea theme too.

Here's a card I created using the Time for Tea bundle in the 2018/2019 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue.

Heart of Christmas Week 5 - Christmas creations brought to you by the Art With Heart Stampin' Up! Team, Australia


Heart of Christmas HOC picture

Today's Heart of Christmas Week 5 card is perfect for a Australian summer Christmas. It comes from a fun stamp set in the 2018 Holiday Catalogue, called So Santa. This was my original version, coloured with Stampin' Blends.

After I photographed and edited the pic, I decided to add some Granny Apple Green 1/2" ribbon, so this snap is a quick one in my craft room. I think I prefer the addition of the ribbon, what do you think?

I had fun colouring this image with my Stampin' Blends, although was worried my Santa was looking a little anaemic, lol.  How fabulous is the Swirls and Curls embossing folder though?

There are some other fun images in this set, which I am looking forward to making into projects over the coming weeks.

Week 15 AWH Colour Creations Blog Hop - Daffodil Delight

Colour Creations 300

Daffodil Delight

Hey there, it's time for some more Art With Heart Stampin' Up! Team Colour Creations inspiration. This week we are playing with another yellow, Daffodil Delight. I am totally in love with a couple of the country themed products in the 2018 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue. The Country Home stamp set is a lovely set to colour, and the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing folder has been flying off the shelves.

Stampin' Up! Country Home stamp set coloured with Stampin Blends. Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

I have used the following Stampin' Blends to colour the image:

  • Smoky Slate combo
  • Crumb Cake Combo
  • Old Olve Combo
  • Daffodil Delight Combo
  • Lovely Lipstick Combo

After I embossed the Smoky Slate cardstock with the Tin Tile embossing folder, I rubbed some Smoky Slate ink over the top with a Stampin' Sponge. The little scalloped piece I have used at the join of the Daffodil Delight and Smoky Slate cardstock, is a piece from the Laser Cur specialty paper which I sponged Basic Grey ink onto using a sponge dauber.

Here's my colour combination for today:

My greeting is from the Perennial Birthday stamp set. I seem to use that a lot! This photo shows the subtle embossing I have done on the Daffodil Delight piece as well, This was using the very approriately named Subtle Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder, which gives a lovely textured look. This is great when you want to dress up a piece of cardstock, just a little bit.

Here's a look at the beautiful Country Home stamp set. It's photopolymer, so super easy to line up the flowers and the jugs.

Heart of Christmas Week 3 - Christmas creations brought to you by the Art With Heart Stampin' Up! Team, Australia

Heart of Christmas HOC picture

Hello lovely friends. It's time for some weekly Heart of Christmas Christmas card inspiration with the Art With Heart Stampin' Up! team girls. 

Stampin Up 2018 Christmas card using Seasonal Wreath dynamic embossing folder, and All is Bright DSP. Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

This week I decided to do a square card. Although it has a few layers and elements, I do think this one would still be easy to do in batches of a few, by completing each element in batches and assembling together at the end.

Here's the measurements and what I did to make the card (the bolded items refer to product links at the end of the post):

  • My base card Real Red cardstock and is 14cm square, and the piece of photo realistic is All is Bright Designer Series Paper from the Holiday Catalogue (coming on September 5th) which is 13.7cm square.
  • The main stamped panel (9.5cm square) is a piece of Shimmery White cardstock with the Seasonal Wreath Dynamic Textured Folder used on it. 
  • Next I sponged Garden Green ink over the embossing using a Sponge Dauber.
  • I used Red Rhinestones for the berries, and the Gold Foil bow die cut is from Stitched Seasons Framelits (quick - only available until August 31st), with a Gold Faceted Gem in the centre.
  • This wreath piece is matted on a piece of Real Red cardstock and then some Gold Foil cardstock.
  • The greeting is from a stamp set coming soon in the Holiday Catalogue, called Timeless Tidings. I have used the second smallest circle in the Stitched Shape Framelits, which fits inside the wreath perfectly. The greeting is stamped in Shaded Spruce.

I think my favourite part of this card is the different shades of green the spongeing gives on the embossing. I really like the combination of Garden Green and Shadded Spruce together too. I think that Stitched Seasons bow die-cut will be getting a workout the next few months.

Here's another look at the Stitched Seasons Framelits. Available to purchase (only until Friday 31st August - so just 2 more days) by themselves, or as a bundle with the coordinating stamp set. Get them HERE in my online store.

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!

Now it's time to check in and see what the rest of the team who are participating today have made. We have:
