Stampin' Up! Tasty Trucks Saleabration 2017 Stamp Set

One of my favourite childhood memories was visiting the beach with my family. At the end of a fun, sandy day (and often a dumping or two by the waves) we would grab an ice cream from the Mr Whippy van and head back to the car for the drive home. As soon as I saw the tasty Trucks Saleabration 2017 stamp set, it evoked those memories, so I decided to turn my truck into a Mr Whippy ice cream van.

The seagulls were borrowed from another stamp set, High Tide from the Occasions catalogue (link at the bottom of the post). I made the custom greeting using my vintage typewriter and the image is watercoloured in Blushing Bride, Basic Grey and Smoky Slate. The patterned paper is from the neutrals Designer Series paper stack (I use this a lot!).

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.

Some farmyard fun with Stampin' Up! Hey Chick for Saleabration 2017

Chooks and a tassle. Whoever thought you would see that one one of my creations this year? Enter the new Stampin' Up! set Hey Chick, which is one of this years free offerings with a $90 order during Saleabration. 

I was born and bred in the country and raised on farms. I have lots of memories and funny stories about the farm chookpen, like when the rooster chased my brother out of the chookpen and he accidentally flattened my sister (who was shaken but ok) on the other side of the 'just propped up with string' chook pen gate. We still laugh about that. So when I saw Hey Chick, I could definitely see the humour.

Stampin' Up! Hey Chick Stamp Set for Saleabration 2017. Card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

I watercoloured each of the chooks (using Daffoldil Delight, Calypso Coral and Early Espresso) and then fussy cut them to layer a little. I've use a base of Tip Top Taupe, and the paper / embellishments are from the Cupcakes and Carousels product suite in the 2017 Occasions Catalogue.

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.

Stampin' Up! Project Life Hello December 2016 Christmas Cards

Love love love the colours in this years Stampin' Up! Project Life Hello December Card Kit and matching Accessory Kit (both on special for 30% off this week). As well as being perfect for December Daily albums, they are also great for general Christmas scrapbooking. They also make fabulous elements for Christmas Cards. Here's a bunch of  cards I whipped up last night.

Stampin' Up! Project Life Hello December 2016 Christmas Cards by Claire Daly Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

Let's look at each card individually. This first card was super simple! The base is out 12x12" kraft cardstock, and I have stamped a few stars on it with Crumb Cake ink. I then just added strips of Candy Cane Lane washi tape, cut out the circle from one of the 3x4" cards and popped it on the card with Dimensionals. The little tree is from the accessory pack and has been coloured with a Bronze Sharpie.

Stampin' Up! Project Life Hello December 2016 Christmas Cards by Claire Daly Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

For this second card (I think this one is my favourite), I just used 5 of the 2" x 2" cards in the accessory pack. The centre card is matted and then raised up with Dimensionals. I have used the largest square in the Stitched Shapes Framelits underneath the centre square. The greeting is from Christmas Magic in the Holiday Catalogue.

Stampin' Up! Project Life Hello December 2016 Christmas Cards by Claire Daly Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

For this one, I used Merriest Wishes background stamp in Cherry Cobbler onto Cherry Cobbler cardstock for the base. I then added one of the 3x4" cards attached with Washi tape. The stars on top of the tree are enamel shape stars coloured with a Bronze Sharpie. and the greeting is from Stitched with Cheer in the Holiday Catalogue. I have attached some Copper metallic thread under the greeting for some added texture.

Stampin' Up! Project Life Hello December 2016 Christmas Cards by Claire Daly Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

For this one, I have used a 6x4" card as the second layer and then one of the printed transparencies from the card kit as a second layer. Then I have just popped on a couple of sticker banners from the accessory kit and a punched silver glimmer star. The smaller silver stars are from the accessory pack as well.

Stampin' Up! Project Life Hello December 2016 Christmas Cards by Claire Daly Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

I just love the quote on this final card, it's so what Christmas is about to me. The second layer on this one is a 6x4" card, and the 3x4" card with the quote on is just attached with Candy Cane lane Washi tape. The circle greeting is from the accessory pack sticker sheet and it is on a very thin mat of Emerald Envy cardstock. I have also attached some Emerald Envy stars from the 2016-18 In Colour enamel shape pack.

Team Blog Hop Logo 300px wideToday some of my Art with Heart Stampin’ Up! team girls are sharing some wonderful ideas to inspire you with our Designer Series Papers. This month is the start of the new Stampin' Up! year and we have a special promotion on our Designer Series Paper, buy 3 get 1 FREE for the month of October and there is no limit! You have come here from Rebecca Jacavou, one of the talented stampers on my team. Blogs are full circle so just keep hopping and there in a full list of participants at the end as well.

Dsp special

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.

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 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.

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

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.

Box 6

Stampin' Up! Moroccan Designer Series Paper for a masculine Thinking of You handmade card.

Hello stampers. Happy Monday.

I have to tell you Emerald Envy has TOTALLY taken me by surprise and crept in to firmly cement itself as one of my few favourite Stampin' Up! colours at the moment. I'm also a big fan of Early Espresso, which is one of the reasons I am loving the Moroccan Designer Series Paper from the Stampin' Up! 2016 Annual Catalogue. 

Stampin Up Moroccan Nights stamp set and Moroccan DSP. Masculine thinking of you card by Claire Daly Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

I found the images in the stamp set perfect for the masculine card I was making. I particularly love the border stamp and how it echoes the patterns on this piece of DSP.

Stampin Up Moroccan Nights stamp set and Moroccan DSP. Masculine thinking of you card by Claire Daly Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

For my masculine embellishments, I have used our Burlap Trim and Linen Thread together, and then used a Bronze Sharpie to colour some of the White Perfect Accents - this gives a great copper embellishment and copper is so on trend right now!

Stampin' Up! Floral Boutique DSP Birthday Butterfly Card and Decorated Gift Bag

Love the classic Navy and White colour combo in the Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up! (on sale this month). It looks great with a pop of bright colour, but also suits a more subtle colour combination like I have used on today's birthday card.

Floral Boutique DSP and washi tape birthday card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

It's been a while since I have pulled out my Elegant Butterfly punch, and I was reminded how simple it is to create a card using it. The Floral Boutique product suite also includes matching Washi tape, which makes coordinating the elements on this card an absolute breeze.

Stampin' Up! Wonder of Christmas and Candy Cane Lane DSP 2016 Christmas Card

Hello stampers :) Time to get out that beautiful angel in the Wonder of Christmas stamp set from the 2016 Holiday Catalogue again.

I have watercoloured her using Wisteria Wonder, Crumb Cake and Mint Macaron with a little Smoky Slate on the sash. I used Aquapainters and the ink inside the ink pad lid for my colouring. The Designer Series Paper I have used as the background layer, is from Candy Cane Lane. This DSP and a host of others are part of a promotion this month where you can buy 3 get one free, so be sure to check my online store for more details.

My greeting is from the Stitched with Cheer stamp set. I've used the gold bakers twine (from the bakers twine trio in the Holiday catalogue) between the angel and the doily. I like the weight of this better than the metallic thread. There's also some wink of Stella on the wings, but this is a little tricky to photograph.

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.

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.

Happy World Card Making Day and 2 new Stampin' Up! Specials for October

Cardmaking is pretty cool right? I mean we get great 'me time' while we are making the card and get to express our creativity, and then we get to pop that in an envelope and send (or give) those happy wishes in the card to someone else, so those good feelings happen all over again.

Before I started making cards, my card giving was limited to Christmas, birthdays, weddings and new baby's. I'm excited I have now had my eyes opened to so many other great reasons to send a card. Some of my favourite reasons to send a card are 'hello' or 'just because'. I think it's the unexpected nature of those cards that appeal to me as a sender. I also love to send thank you cards and congratulations cards (which I send a lot of with an amazing team like the one I have). There's so many reasons to send a card.

For 5 days only (October 1-5), Stampin' Up! have some great card-making items on special. Don't miss out on these great bargains.

You can shop them in my Online Store HERE.

We also have a great Designer Series Paper deal this month. Buy 3 packs and get a 4th pack free. This is an awesome deal for scrapbookers and cardmakers.

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.

Two ways with the Stampin' Up! Swirly Bird Bundle

Hello friends.

Back in the swing of things after holidays and enjoying creating again. I shared Stampin' Up! at a get together of a lovely lady and her friends last night, and shared the lovely Swirly Bird bundle which has been very popular (it's a super versatile bundle). Here's the card we made as the make and take:

Swirly bird make and take

It was so fun and I always love seeing the sense of accomplishment when the guests realise THEY CAN make things. My colours are Tip Top Taupe, Mint Macaron and Blushing Bride.

Sirly Bird colour

As I mentioned, this set is super versatile so I showed another couple of ways to use the stamp set including this card which also featured the new Petal Burst embossing folder.

We have only just scratched the surface with the ways you can use this fabulous stamp set and matching Framelit die set. If you purchase in a bundle, you can save 10% on both. See all the bundle and save options HERE  in my online store.
