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.

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.

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.

Stampin' Up! So Very Much meets Oh So Succulent for Saleabration / Occasions 2017

Today's card features another of the free offerings for Stampin' Up! Saleabration 2017, but I have also used some products I was really keen to try out from the new Occasions Catalgogue: the Oh So Succulent stamp set and Succulent Garden Designer Series paper. I love my succulents and last year started up some succulent bowls on my back patio which are doing great. I love the variation in colour they provide in the garden. Now onto my card.

Stampin Up So Very Much, Oh So Succulent, Succulent Garden DSP. Occasions and Saleabration 2017. By Claire Daly, Stampin Up Melbourne Australia.

The colours featured in the Succulent Garden Designer Series paper are Sweet Sugarplum, Old Olive, Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe, Calypso Coral and Whisper White. So pretty! I have picked up the Sweet Sugarplum for my stamping, and used Old olive, Mint Macaron and a touch of Rich Razzleberry for my watercolouring (I used a combination of watercolour pencils and ink pads to colour with). The Oh So Succulent stamp set has lots of great images you can colour and layer.
