Stampin' Up! Mothers Day card with new 2018 Love What You Do and Making a Difference Stamp Sets

Hello. I've been working on Mother's Day cards this week. Sometimes I don't have exactly the right sentiment, but with a couple of the new 2018 Stampin' Up! stamp sets available as part of the Share What You Love bundle, I was able to come up with the perfect sentiment for the card for my Mum. 

Stampin Up Share What You Love mothers day card 2018. Claire Daly Melbourne Australia.

I really am lucky to have a Mum like I have. She has taught me strength, resilience, the importance of a close, loyal family and much more. I am so grateful for my Mum.

This is what I started with before I played around with the greeting.

Stampin Up Share What You Love mothers day card 2018. Claire Daly Melbourne Australia.

I have used the stamps from the Love What You Do stamp set which is available for customers to buy this month in the three different Share What You Love Bundles.

149804O1

I have used Powder Pink for my card base and for the flowers, Pear Pizazz for the wreath, and Mint Macaron for the greeting. The cute little pearls are part of the embellishments included in Bundles 1 and 2, the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls.

Colour MD card

Measurements: My base card is 10.5cm square, and the Whisper White layer is 10 cm square.

Tip: To get the circle shape to stamp the wreath around, I used a pencil to draw inside the largest of my layering circle Framelits.

 

For my adapted version of this card, I added in some elements from the new 2018 Making a Difference Stampin' Up! stamp set.

The measurements and colours are exactly the same. I have used the floral image from the Making a Difference Stamp Set instead. For the greeting, I chopped up the bits I wanted to use, and then arranged them around the word 'Mum' which I stamped using the alphabet stamps in the set (LOVING the script font in this set). The letters are easy to line up as they are Photopolymer (even for someone with dodgy eyes like me). The little wood heart is an embellishment from the 2017 Annual Catalogue (Hearts and Stars Elements).

The Share What You Love exclusive May bundles are really pretty. Stampin' Up! have included free product gifts in each bundle, and I am also giving away 12 FREE Tutorials, and a 53 swatch colour sampler to anyone who buys any of the 3 bundles from me in May.

5 Cards for males with the retiring True Gentleman Product Suite

Another of my much loved product suites in the 2018 Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalogue, has been the True Gentleman suite of products. I really liked the deep rich masculine colours in the Designer Series Paper (and coordinating cardstock pack), the fabulous textured  Night of Navy Corduroy Ribbon, and the True Gentleman wooden buttons (the buttons are the only one of these consumable products carrying over to the new catalogue).

Capture

The coordinating bundle to this stamp set is the Truly Tailored Bundle. While the stamp set ISN'T Carrying over, the Tailored Tag Punch is, and there is a lovely new stamp set that it coordinates with which I will show you very soon. Here is the Truly Tailored Bundle which is available while stocks last until May 31st. Check out the links at the end of the post to grab these products before they retire.

Retiring Stampin' Up! Petal Passion Designer Series Paper

Oh how I loved this Petal Passion Designer Series Paper from the 2018 Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalogue. I've loved working with it, but it's now onto the Stampin' Up! Retiring Products List, and only available while stocks last through May 31st.

Petal Passion

The three main reasons I loved it, were:

  • It is a great neutral paper as a black and while, but this one for me was particularly useful because the contrast of the black was toned down quite a bit by the sketch look of the images, so there is actually quite a lot of softer grey in there too;
  • It has a floral / nature theme which are my favourite paper themes (anyone who follows my Instagram ill know how much I love flowers and plants).
  • It was FABULOUS to colour with Stampin' Blends (which are back in stock within weeks now and 11 fabulous new colours (in light and dark) are coming June 1st!
  • It coordinates beautifully with the Petal Palette bundle (carrying over to the 2018-2019 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue, but only available at the 10%  bundle price until May 31st.

So as you can see, it is super versatile. Here are a couple of cards I made with this beautiful paper,

For this card, I have just used different colours of the Stampin' Blends to colour flowers on the paper. 

PP Blends

In between the flowers I sponged some Soft Sky ink. The card just needed a simple black and white sentiments but I have also added a few rhinestones to some of the flower centres.

In PP blends

For my second card, I have used one of my favourite colour combinations with this paper: Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive.

Painted Palette CC

For the floral image, I have stamped the image from the Petal Palette Stamp Set (see links at end of post) and in Memento Black, and coloured with the Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Stampin' Blends. I have used one of the coordinating embellishments, some Old Olive ribbon and a greeting cut from one of the coordinating Memory and More cards.

Painted Palette CC 2.

Check out the links at the end of this post, and don't miss out on the beautiful Petal Passion paper pack, along with the coordinating embellishments and Memories and More pack (only available while stocks last or May 31st) and bundle pricing on the Petal Palette bundle (ends May 21st).

I have used one of the newly available products from the second release of the Saleabration products. It is called Blossoming Basket bundle, and is a combination of a beautiful floral basket line art stamp set with a coordinating basket weave embossing folder. This is a level 2 Saleabration gift which means this bundle can be redeemed for free with a $180 order in my online store or by phone or email. There are also lots of other gifts that can be chosen for a $90 order, so just ask if you would like a Saleabration brochure.

Blossoming Basket

I used the Stampin Blends in Crumb Cake, Pink Pirouette and Rich Razzleberry to colour the image (after stamping with Memento Black). My cardstock colours are Crumb Cake, Powder Pink and Shimmery White.

BASKET sab

My greeting is from At Home With You, as I wanted a very small greeting and I love the font in this set. I have used coordinating Powder Pink ribbon as well.  I love how the ribbon coordinates in so well with the Stampin' Blends colours as well.
