Three Stampin Up 2015 Christmas cards for you.

Hello there friends. Time to catch up on posting some Christmas cards I've completed over the past few weeks. Hope you find some inspiration here. Lots of these products are retiring from the current Holiday Catalogue, so if there is something you love, the product links are below my signature.

Love these colours of Mint Macaron, Rose Red, Silver and White together, I have used the Among the Branches Stamp Set, leftovers from the Oh What Fun Tag Kit, Holidays Fancy Foil Designer Vellum, Silver Cording, 1/8" striped ribbon and Silver Glimmer Paper. You NEED a Triple Banner Punch to make punching those flag ends a breeze. These days that's my most used Stampin' Up! tool besides my Stampin' Trimmer.

Next up we have a card I made using one of the cards from the Project Life Seasonal Snapshot 2015 Card Collection. Project Life cards make awesome element for cards too. I have also used some Cherry Cobbler Thick Bakers Twine, some Gold Cording Trim, a Snowflake Element and a piece of Gold Glimmer Paper and Home for Christmas Enamel Dots. My base card is Cherry Cobbler.

This one is a super simple one that could quickly and easily be reproduced into a batch of cards. The stamp set used here is Cosy Christmas, and the DSP is from Season of Cheer. I stamped the Santa and sleigh image in Soft Sky onto Soft Sky cardstock, and my greeting was coloured direct to rubber using my Soft Sky, Mossy Meadow and Real Red markers. I've also used the 2.5" Circle Punch and Tree Punch.

I hope you have enjoyed these cards. I have another 4 coming tomorrow morning in another post, so stay tuned. Until then, stay happy.

Art With Heart Team Blog Hop: Memory Keeping

Awht blog hop start
Welcome to my Art With Heart Team Blog Hop for November. This month some of the girls are focusing on Memory Keeping (Scrapbooking/Project Life). We all take photos right? Well, capturing every day moments is so special and we need to document these to cherish. We are all passionate about memory keeping and we want to continue to inspire each other, and you, as we move forward in 2016!

First up I have a traditional scrapbook page of a favourite photo from last Christmas. I have used the Words of Truth stamp set on this page, along with the Everyday Chic Designer Series Paper

Stampin Up Scrapbook Page 2015 Claire Daly Australia. Using Words of Truth stamp set and Everyday Chic DSP.

 

I have white embossed the title (be sure to use the embossing buddy when embossing white on black). Then I stamped the other phrases from the set and used them as journalling. For some additional journalling I downloaded a free typewriter font, and used that on a spare journalling card. I've also added an antique brad and a spare wooden heart I had leftover from a card kit.

I also have another page to show you form the Project Life New York album I am working on. The Project Life by Stampin' Up! Let's Get Away Card Collection is awesome for travel pages!

I love how easy it is to tell your story as you go with Project Life. Just pop in the journalling cards and write away. I also use punches to cut out bits of other cards to add additional bits and pieces to the cards sometimes (such as the punched out world shape centre top.

Here is a closer look at the Project Life by Stampin' Up! Card Collection, Accessory Pack and coordinating stamp set. All of these can be purchased in my online store (red button top right) under the Project Life section.

Project Life Stampin' Up!: New Moments Like This Kit Blog Hop

Hello there. Something a little bit different for you today, Project Life memory keeping with the Memory Keeping with Project Life Stampin' Up! (MKPLSU) Design Team girls around the world.

Moments Like This is one of the great new card kits (with matching accessories and stamp set) in the 2015/16 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. The colours are a very on trend Gold Foil, white, black, Mint Macaron and Watermelon Wonder.

My sister was kind enough to wear a watermelon coloured jacket to our recent family reunion on my Perth holiday, which made these photos perfect to scrap with this kit. Thanks, sis!

I had fun choosing the cards and using the accessory pack to customise some of the cards using the trendy stickers and sequins. My title, and a couple of the phrases (I had to include "family is everything" as I say that all the time to my boys) and strip journaling were done using my computer. Really happy how these pages turned out.

For the title, I also added some stamping, by using the matching stamp set to stamp the day of the week in Mint Macaron. I also added some cardstock to this card. One of the great benefits of using Stampin' Up! cards is the catalogue tells you which of our cardstock colours perfectly match the card sets.

Stampin' Up! Let's Get Away Project Life for SB102

Hello. Today's post comes to you from the (not so sunny) Gold Coast where the Australian Stampin' Up! Convention is starting today. Lots of unveiling of new products, lots of fun! I'll be bringing you some updates here, but make sure you like my Facebook Stampin' Up! Page  for up to the minute news.

Today is also Stamping and Blogging Design Team Day! I've gone for something a little different today, using one of the Project Life cards for a card front (it comes from the set appropriately named 'Let's Get Away'. I loved that bicycle card as soon as I saw it, and the pre-printed label was perfect to stamp a greeting into. I added

SB102 card

I just added a little extra stamping in Crushed Curry top right to add some more ink splotches to balance the design (Gorgeous Grunge stamp set is perfect for this) and some embellishments and some bling on the wheels.

SB 102 Close Up

I also added a small strip of Melon Mambo cardstock at the top and bottom before adhering to the base card (the Project Life card was a 6x4 card trimmed to size). Easy, quick and fun and there are lots more options in any of the Stampin' Up! project Life card sets.

Here's the sketch we had to work with this week.
