3 ways with Stampin' Up! Petal Palette Stamp Set

Some bundles just jump right out of the page at me when I open a new catalogue, and they are usually the nature style stamp sets for me. Birds, flowers, leaves etc. Stampin' Up!'s new Petal Palette stamp set from the Occasions Catalogue ticked all the boxes for me. It has a coordinating set of Thinlits called Petals and More Thinlit Dies, and a lovely set 0f 2 border embellishment folders called Petal Pair Textured Impressions Embossing Folders. Here are 3 ways I have used these lovely products. This is just the tip of the iceberg. You will be seeing LOTS more of this product suite from me.

For my first card I have coloured the roses in Cherry Cobbler light and dark Stampin' Blends, with Old Olive light and dark Stampin' Blends on the leaves. I also used the Lots of Labels Framelits.

I added some gentle shimmer with the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.

For my second card, I coloured in Calypso Coral light and dark Stampin Blends, with Old Olive light and dark for the leaves. I also used one on the embossing folders on the crumb cake layer.

I did a little bit of background stamping on the label shape that was left over from the last card. and added a greeting from the set. That lovely label die cut is included in the Thinlits.  I also added some Wink of Stella to this card.

For my third card (which I think is my favourite), I have used Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive light and dark Stampin Blends, but haven't used the glitter this time. I used the other embossing folder but didn't take it all the way across the card. I also added in some background stamping at the top of the card (that background stamp included in the set is so versatile).

The greeting or this card came from a different set (it was just the sentiment I needed for this card, for someone who is going through an extremely difficult time). It's from Ribbon of Courage stamp set.

Stampin' Up! Flying Home Stamp Set with Stampin' Blends

Today's shares feature some coloured images from the new Flying Home stamp set in the Stampin' Up! 2018 Occasions Catalogue. This is a super cute set of line drawn images which are just perfect for colouring.

Stampin Up Flying Home stamp set #occassions2018

I stamped my images in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, onto Thick Whisper White cardstock as I planned to colour with Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers. I used Light Old Olive, Light and Dark Crumb Cake, Light Pink Pirouette, Light and Dark Pool Party and Light Calypso Coral.

I did two different designs, with the coloured images cut out either with the circle or square Stitched Shape Framelits.

The diecut I have used is from the Petals and More Thinlit Dies.  I tried it in Soft Sky and Crumb Cake, but I think I like the Soft Sky versions best.

I did a bit of a watercolour wash in Soft Sky around the coloured image to soften some of the white space.

I wanted the coloured images to be the focus of these cards, so I just went for a really small simple greeting from the At Home With You stamp set. I love the font in the greetings in this set.

Stampin' Up! Petal Palette Bundle from Occasions 2018 Catalogue makes it's debut in 4 days

Hello friends. I'm back from some family time over Christmas, so it's time to jump into showing you all the fabulous things coming your way on January 3rd with the launch of the Stampin' Up! 2018 Occasions Catalogue and the 2018 Saleabration promotion.

The Petal Palette bundle is part of the Petal Passion suite in the new 2018 Occasions Catalogue. I really like this bundle for the artwork, the vintage look and feel, and because it has a bunch of sentiments included. It's available in wood-mount and clear-mount. Here's my first card with his bundle:

Stampin Up Petal Palette Bundle from Occasions 2018. Card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia. #stampinup #stampinupaustralia #occasions2018 #petalpalette #vintagecards

Here's Step by Step Instructions:

  1. I started with a top folding C6 card (half sheet of A4, cut in half vertically and folded in half with bone folder).
  2. I die cut the large branch in Crumb Cake and adhered to the left half of card using either glue or snail.
  3. I die cut the long lacework piece in Fresh Fig cardstock and adhered to the bottom of the card, slightly off centre so the right edge is next to the right side of the card.
  4. I embossed the largest flower/leaf image onto vellum in copper embossing powder (i.e. stamp in Versamark, cover with Copper embossing powder, shake off excess, heat with heat gun)
  5. Cut the embossed image out with the coordinating thinlin. Attach to the bottom left corner of card using Dimensionals (I placed the Dimensionals where they would be covered with the bird and greeting).
  6. Stamp the greeting in Early Espresso ink onto Very Vanilla. Use the label thinlit to cut the greeting out.
  7. Attach the greeting slightly to the right of, and half over the Fresh Fig piece, using Dimensionals to adhere.
  8. Stamp the bird in Fresh Fig ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock, and cut out using the coordinating thinlit.
  9. Using an Aqua-painter, gently pull some of the ink onto the stamped sections of the bird, towards the centre to give a light watercolor effect. Dry with heat-gun.
  10. Attach a tiny pearl to highlight the birds eye.
  11. Attach the bird (slightly overlapping the greeting) using Dimensionals.
  12. Attach some adhesive pearls as shown to embellish and provide balance to the design.
  13. Tie a double strand of linen thread around the top of the card and create a bow, Trim the ends.

The different textures and use of Dimensionals gives this card lots of texture and dimension, which I think really suits this style of stamp set.

Stampin' Up! Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder - BigShot sandwich and tips.

Hello friends. Today I have a quick and easy card for you as I wanted to show you how amazing and  multidimensional the beautiful new Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing folder is. You can find this folder on page 211 of Stampin' Up!'s new 2017 Annual Catalogue, or HERE in my Online Stampin' Up! Store.

  Stampin Up Layered Leaves Embossing folder and Label Me Pretty. 2017 Annual Catalogue. Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

These folders are thicker than our standard embossing folders (to accommodate the extra dimension), so here are a few tips to get a great result:

  • Just use one sheet of cardstock and spritz each side lightly with water before you put it into the folder.
  • Set up your BigShot sandwich with the BigShot base plate on the bottom, the folder next (with the spine going into the BigShot first), and then just one acrylic plate on top.
  • Roll the folder through the BigShot one way, and then while the very end of the folder is still under the pressure of the BigShot roller, roll back the other way and out.
  • If you are inpatient like me, you can dry any remaining damp spots on the cardstock with your heat gun.

Stampin' Up! have got a great video on how to use these folders:

 

I love the variation in depth of impression this Layered Leaves folder gives and can see I will be using it on lots of projects. Doesn't it look amazing in the new Incolour Lemon Lime Twist?

I have used a few other of my favourite new Stampin' Up! products on this card too. The new Berry Burst ink and cardstock, the beautiful new Lemon Lime Twist ombre ribbon, the new Pretty Label Punch and the coordinating Label Me Pretty stamp set. You can link to all of these products in the online store using the individual links at the end of my post.

The Pretty Label punch and matching stamp set comes in a bundle too, so that you can save 10% on the combined individual price. There are a massive 23 bundles in this years catalogue - find them all HERE in the bundles section of the online store.
