Thoughtful Branches Bundle by Stampin' Up! - Just 10 days left to grab it!

I'm so glad I bought the Thoughtful Branches bundle by Stampin' Up!. To be honest I wasn't 100% sure at the beginning as I had other tree and flower stamps, BUT as soon as I started playing with it on my friends weekend away, I had to have it. I'm just finding it's the perfect combination of great sentiments in a great font, and some really versatile images and Thinlits. I make lots of cards using nature images too. 

Here's a couple of simple cards I made to let some people know I was thinking of them. They were so quick and simple to make! For this one my greeting is stamped in Early Espresso  and my leaves in Sahara Sand, Soft Suede and Sweet Sugarplum.

This one is the same card in different colours. The greeting is stamped in Dapper Denim and the leaves in Emerald Envy, Cajun Craze and Delightful Dijon.

I also stamped my monthly customer thank you cards using this bundle. Again they were really quick and easy and I love how they turned out.

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.

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! Quick and Simple Thank You card - Sneak Peek

Hello friends.

You know sometimes you want to make a bunch of super simple thankyou cards to have on hand? Well that's was my project this past weekend. I wanted a quick and simple hand made card using Stampin' Up! products that I could mass produce. Our notecard and envelope packs are perfect to use for these, and I chose the crumb cake ones to whip up 20 of these:

Stampin' Up! quick and simpe thank you card. Claire Daly Melbourne Australia.

My stamp set is a new hostess set sneak peek from the 2015/16 Stampin' Up! catalogue, called A Whole Lot of Lovely. It's a great set of 4 stamps which coordinates with our 2" and 2.5" circle punches. I love using circles on my cards. It really balances the rectangle of the card.

3 ways this card was super simple and quick:

  • I used the new Triple Banner Punch (= totally LOVE this new tool) so was able to quickly create the banner ends on the 1" and 1.5" inch paper strips.
  • I stamped the greeting just in one colour and added colour later with a simple punched flowers. By stamping and then punching I didn't need to be too precise with my stamping.
  • I used the notecards and envelopes which are a perfect size and one quick stamp on the envelope customised the envelopes to match.

I loved using two of the new 2015/2017 Stampin' Up! In Colors on these cards too. Here is the colour combination for this project.

I have some more notecard size cards coming up later in the week. These are fabulous to have on hand for quick simple cards. You can find them here in my online store.

See you back here again soon,

Claire
