Art With Heart Stampin' Up! Team Monthly Blog Hop: My favourite new product bundle.

16387394_10154010975516735_4953759083653002070_n

Today the Art with Heart Team girls are showing you their favourite bundles from the 2017 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. Bundles make creating a breeze, because of the perfect coordination. It's a bonus that you get 10% off by bundling the products together too. There are 23 bundles in the new catalogue so ask us about them, or for a catalogue today!

You have to come to me from the lovely Alisha Watson's Blog.

I am showcasing the fabulous Oh So Eclectic bundle which is on page 133 of the Annual Catalogue. I chose this one because of the versatility of the Thinlitsand the way the stamps create the illusion of texture. This is the bundle used to create the images on the front of the Annual Catalogue too. This bundle is part of a suite which also includes the Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper and some great embellishments.

Here's a look at the bundle:

Oh So Eclectic Bundle

 

In my first card, I have layered the hexagonal die cut piece over some of the Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper. Next I layered stamped and die cut pieces in Emerald Envy, Berry Burst and Lemon Lime twist to pick up the colours in the paper. My base card is Soft Sky.

I wanted this card for a special birthday I am attending on Sunday, so I stamped a greeting from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set which you will find on page 77 of the Annual Catalogue. This greeting fits really nicely inside the new Pretty Label punch too (page 207).

For my second card I have used the hexagonal piece in another way. Once I had cut it from Powder Pink cardstock, I used my paper snips to cut around the very edge to create an embellishment layer. The paper I have used for this card is one of my favourites in the new catalogue, the Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper. 

Oh So Eclectic bundle hello card with Starburst Punch and Whole Lot of Lovely DSP. By Claire Daly Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

For the greeting on this card, I have embossed the greeting in white onto Basic Black cardstock and cut into thin strips. I have used the new Starburst Punch behind my stamped image. I love it when I can just grab a punch! I found the 2" circle punch a perfect fit for layering in front of the Starburst shape.

The other very cool thing about this bundle, is that the Thinlits also coordinate with another stamp set; You're Priceless on page 160 of the Annual Catalogue. I love this set!

Your Priceless
I have used some more of the paper from the Naturally Eclectic Designer Series paper. I stamped the diamond colours first (the two darker colours are stamped off once). When you are doing this, I found it easiest to stamp the darker colours first, so it's easier to see the placement of the lighter colours. I then cut the outline of this stamped shape with the Thinlits. Next I cut the inside of the diamond from the silver glimmer paper, and then the outline shape. The magnetic plate is very handy for this step.

I finished this one off with a greeting in Night of Navy ink, some border stamping in Lemon Lime Twist, and some Lemon Lime Twist Ombre ribbon. The new ribbons in this catalogue are so awesome. Check them out on page 198 and 199. This ombre ribbon particularly caught my eye and also comes in Calypso Coral and Island Indigo.

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.

Stampin' Up! At Home With You and the beautiful doors of France.

Around this time last year  our cruise ship stop in Marseille). Paris was everything I dreamed it would be, and I could wander those streets for months I think. One of the things that I loved looking at and photographing (beyond the beautiful floral balconies) were the doors. They were so beautiful and ornate. Here's a beautiful one I saw at Aix En Provence, and there are some more ones from Paris at the end of my post.

Aix En Provence ornate door France

 

It is those doors I was reminded of  and inspired by when I saw the new At Home with Me stamp set / bundle with matching At Home Framelits in the 2017 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. I have a things about doors at the moment!

Stampin' Up! Avant Garden: One of the free Salabration 2017 choices with a qualifying order

Today we are having a look at Avant Garden, another of the free sets you can earn with Stampin' Up! during Saleabration 2017.  I really like this set, and it's been a popular choice with the mix of sentiments and abstract / realistic floral images. I really like the font on the sentiments, and it is photopolymer for great layering.

My card is a loose interpretation of one on the front colour of the Saleabration brochure as I really liked the colours that were used.

I am featuring the lovely Fruit Stand Designer Series paper. To be honest, this wasn't a paper that immediately caught my eye, but I received a small sample in a team product share and when I was looking for a paper to use for this card set, the bright colours really caught my eye and now I really like and have ordered a whole pack as part of the special so I can use more of it!

My project is a card box which holds four mini cards and envelopes. The box and envelopes are made using our Envelope Punch Board.

Mini card box and cards / enveloes made with Envelope Punch Box using Fruit Stand DSP by Claire Daly Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

The box and envelope colour is Cucumber Crush and the card colour Flirty Flamingo which coordinate perfectly with the Fruit Stand DSP. The other colours featured in the DSP are Daffodil Delight, Peekaboo Peach, Pear Pizazz, Tangerine Tango, Watermelon Wonder and Whisper White.

The box holds four mini cards and handmade envelopes. The cards are 3.5" x 3.5" and the envelopes are made using the Envelope Punch Board starting with a piece of 6x6" DSP from the 2015-2016 InColour Paper Stack.

Here's some quick instructions to make the card box using the Envelope Punch Board.

Start with a piece of cardstock 8" x 8". Stamp on this if you wish. I have stamped some of the smaller images from Blooms and Wishes stamp set using Cucumber Crush ink.

Box 1

Place the top left corner at the 3.5" mark on the punch board. Score and punch.

Box 2

Move the top left corner I" to the left (to the 4.5" position) and score and punch again.

Box 3

Rotate the cardstock 90 degrees anticlockwise. You don't need to pay attention to the ruler at the top anymore, just line up each of the score marks and punch and score.

Box 4

Rotate and do this on the other two sides. Using a pair of paper snips, cut sideways on the bottom tabs so they fold inwards, and cut down on the top tabs so they fold downwards as shown.

Box 5

Use a bone folder to crease each of the scored lines, Apply adhesive to the outside of the bottom flap.

Box5a

Fold to close the side flaps over the bottom tab (place your bone folder inside the box and press down on a flat surface to apply pressure for better adhesion). The box closes with the addition of a belly band.
