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. I used the watercolour pencils for some colours (Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry) and the inside of ink ads for others (Mint Macaron and Wild Wasabi). 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! Candy Cane Lane DSP meets Star of Light

I'm a big fan of using Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper. It's the colour coordination with our inks and cardstock which first attracted me as a scrapbooker. No more searching for the perfect cardstock colour! It's also of course great for cardmaking for exactly the same reason.

Here's a card I have made using the Candy Cane Lane DSP from the 2016 Holiday Catalogue. 

Stampin Up Candy Cane Lane DSP and Star of Light stamp set in this 2016 Christmas Card  by Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia at www.clairedaly.typepad.com

Cherry Cobbler and Early Espresso are a great colour combination and I love copper with it this year. The Candy Cane Lane DSP actually has Real Red, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso and Whisper White but it coordinates perfectly with these colours I think. I've also used the Coordinating Candy Cane Lane Washi Tape and some Cherry Cobbler twine.

Stampin' Up! Santa's Sleigh Thinlit Dies

Here's a super cute set of Christmas Thinlit dies to use with your BigShot or other die cutting machine. They are called the Santa's Sleigh Thinlits and you can find them in the 2016 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue. 

For this first card I have used the reindeer thinlit with some Christmas themed washi tape from the Presents and Pinecones product suite.

It was a quick and simple card to make. The reindeer is cut from Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper and that's Cherry Cobbler twine around the neck. I've popped him up with dimensionals, and the base card is Cherry Cobbler. I have finished the card off with a greeting stamped in Emerald Envy.

Glitter rudolph

My second card uses the sleigh thinets in the set. I have cut the base sleigh in Mint Macaron, and the second layer in Dazzling Diamonds gimmer paper. I handcut the presents from the Presents and Pinecones Desghner Series Paper

Art With Heart Team Showcase: 8 ways with the Stampin' Up! Rose Wonder Stamp set / Rose Garden Thinlets.

Hello crafty friends.

Myself and many of the clever ladies in my Art With Heart Stampin' Up! team have been playing with the Rose Wonder stamp set and Rose Garden Thinlit Dies from the 2016 Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalogue.

8 ways to use the Stampin' Up! Rose Wonder Stamp set and Rose Garden Thinlets from the Occasions 2016 Catalogue. Cards by the Art With Heart Team, Australia

 

These two products coordinate perfectly and if you buy them together as a bundle you save 15% (Tip: when you order a bundle make sure you use the bundle code and not just the two individual codes). Here's a look at the products:

Rose Wonder Stamp Set

Rose Garden Thinlits

 

Now here's a look at some of the way we have used this bundle. This one is by me, I chose to just use the Framelits here. My DSP is from the Love Blooms DSP stack, and my color are Crumb Cake and Rose Red. My greeting is from Party with Cake, which is one of my favourites birthday greeting sets at the moment (LOVE the typewriter font).

Rose Wonder / Rose Garden stamp set and thinlets by Stampin Up. Birthday card by Claire Daly SU Demo, Melbourne Australia.

 

My colour scheme is Rose Red and Crumb Cake, with the patterned paper from the Love Blossoms DSP stack. My greeting is from Party with Cake stamp set because I am totally in love with the typewriter font and all the birthday sentiments in this set.

This next card is by Kathryn Mangledorf in South Australia, Kathryn has used the inside cut outs from the Framelits. Learn how on Kathryn's blog post about this card here. Kathryn does regular classes in the Adelaide Hills.

These next two are by Rachel Woollard, who does regular classes and catalogue launches in Ringwood East Victoria. I particularly love how Rachel has layered the stamped and die cut leaves on this first card.

Patterned DSP make a fabulous backing for the die cut rose too.

These two cards were  created by Genna Gifford in Pakenham, for her recent catalogue launch. Isn't this amazing? Genna does classes and catalogue launches.

This bundle also is a great one for making sympathy cards. Here's another card by Genna.

Ros Davidson is another team member who does classes in Skye, south east Melbourne. Ros loved Genna's first card, and wanted to case it.

Quick and simple butterfly themed cards

We have lots of awesome butterfly themed products in the Stampin' Up! annual catalogue, and they make it really quick and easy to make a wow card. Here's two butterfly themed cards I have made.  This one uses the Fluttering Wings embossing folder, with the Watercolor Wings 3 step stamp set stamped in Mint Macaron. I have added some bling with the silver metallic thread and by using the Greetings thinlits (LOVE these) to cut my greeting in silver glimmer paper.

 

quick and simple butterfly thanks card by Claire Daly #stampinup #stampinupsouthpacific #stampinupaustralia #butterfly #quickhellocards

Butterfly 1

This one uses the background stamp from 'You've Got This' along with a butterfly punched from Mint Macaron DSP in the 2015-17 In Colour stack (oops with the upside down writing - don't tell anyone OK?). For the centre of the butterfly, I have used a couple of Pink Pirouette Candy Dots (adhesive brads which come in packs of 100, 10 of each of 10 colours in each Stampin' Up! color group). These are great embellishments to have on hand.

Stampin' Up! Butterfly Basics cards for every occasion

Here are some more cards I made on my mass produce note cards weekend just gone. I made up 20 of these and used a few different sentiments so I have cards on hand.

Stampin Up Butterfly Basics Notecards by Claire Daly Melbourne Australia

Don't be put off because the die looks intricate. I find it easy to get a good cut with these dies if you follow some steps:

  • I use injection foam on my more intricate dies, which really helps with getting a clean cut which pops off the die.
  • Make sure you have a firm 'sandwich' in your Bigshot. I placed the base magnetic plate, the acrylic plate, the die with the cut side facing upwards, the cardstock, the second acrylic plate and for these I added a cardstock shim.

It was quick and easy to cut 20 of the intricate butterfly, and then I popped out the extra pieces with the paper pierce while I was watching TV.

Here's the Stampin' Up! Colour Combination I used on these cards:

Stampin Up Colour Combination 2015 In Colors Mint Macaron, Smoky Slate, Pink Pirouette

Stampin' Up! Retiring List 2015: Chalk Talk for SB101

Hello friends.

Today we are saying goodbye to another favourite Stampin' Up! set of mine, Chalk Talk. This will only be available to order until June 2nd, or until sold out (also available in a bundle with matching Framelits). The wood mount set is 25% off. The Beautifully Baroque embossing folder I have used (which covers a whole card front) is also retiring and is 50% off. You can view all the retiring products (at discounts of up to 50% off) HERE in my online Stampin' Up! store.

The sketch is of course, this weeks Design Team sketch from Sandi for Stamping and Blogging. I love this sketch - very simple but leaves room for layers and texture. Embossing and using a range of trims is a great way to add texture to your cards. I have also popped a couple of the layers up with Dimensionals. My colours are Early Espresso, Baked Brown Sugar (retiring), Blushing Bride and Very Vanilla.

Here's the sketch we had to work with this week. It's a great sketch which could be used in many ways. You could use two coordinating DSP pieces for the background, or even turn it 90 degrees clockwise.

Stampin' Up! Australia Saleabration set Simply Wonderful for SB89

Hello there. Today I'm playing with one of the free sets you can earn during Saleabration, which is our biggest sale of the year for Stampin' Up! here in Australia. The set is called Simply Wonderful which is a great set of 6 sentiments, two of which match perfectly with a couple of our punches (check out the links at the bottom of the page). My card layout is based on this week's Stamping and Blogging sketch which is SB89.

Stampin' Up! Flower Patch and Flower Fair Framelits Congratulations Card

Hello there.

A quick share today of a congrats card using the lovely Flower Patch stamp set and matching Flower Fair Framelits from the Stampin' Up! 2014 Annual Catalogue (links to my online store for all products used is at the end of my post).

Stampin' Up! Flower Patch and Flower Fair Framelits Congratulations Card by Claire Daly Stampin Up Melbourne Australia at www.clairedaly.typepad.com

I'm a bit annoyed with myself for the greeting not being straight :( I liked how my colours turned out though: Cherry Cobbler, Calypso Coral and Smoky Slate. I am LOVING Smoky Slate (the lighter of the two greys) right now.

Stampin' Up! Flower Patch and Flower Fair Framelits Congratulations Card by Claire Daly Stampin Up Melbourne Australia at www.clairedaly.typepad.com

Framelits make it so easy to have precision cutting. The matching Flower Flair Framelits for this stamp set are super east to line up using the magnetic platform. I have also used the Banner Framelits, and the Large Polka Dot embossing folder with my BigShot. You can check all the supplies out below my signature.

I hope you enjoy today's card.

See you back here tomorrow,

Claire

Stampin' Up! Holiday Home Christmas Card for Stamping and Blogging

How cute are these little houses in the Stampin' Up! Holiday Home stamp set? The set is a photopolymer one with lots of extra little bits and pieces to create cute Christmas scenes. It's perfect for paper piecing too. I've used this weeks sketch (SB80) from Stamping and Blogging to come up with today's card.

Stampin Up Holiday Home Christmas Card by Claire Daly Stampin Up Melbourne Australia, for Stamping and Blogging

I've added some Christmas bling in the form of some rhinestones coloured with Blendabilities, glimmer paper and some gold twine. I think gold and Blackberry Bliss look fabulous together. You can view all the products I have used in the card using the links at the end of the post.
