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:

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.

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.

Masking Technique using Stampin' Up! Garden in Bloom

It's not often I create a one layer card (well, technically it's a one layer card front), but I wanted to show off the lovely Garden in Bloom two step stamp set, and the Masking technique was perfect for this card. So simple, but effective I think.

Masking

 

Stamping Tips for a great masked result:

  • One of the keys to a great masked card is having a well defined edge to the masked area. I find using paper (grid paper is perfect) to mask off the area works better than cardstock for that purpose.
  • Grid paper is also perfect for lining everything up straight when you have a straight masked area like I have used here. Here's a picture of my set up before stamping.

  Masking 1

  •  I also find sponging a little over the masked edge gives great definition too.

Here's the colour combination I used on today's card:

The Garden in Bloom stamp set is a great set to add to your collection. It's Photopolymer, so really easy to line up. It's great for two step stamping, but you can also use the outline stamps just by themselves. You can check out this and all the other products I have used in today's card by scrolling through the links at the end of the post.

Stampin' Up! Wild About Flowers Thank You Card

Another quick and simple card today using Stampin' Up! Wild About Flowers stamp set and the Greetings Thinlits.

Wild About Flowers thenkyou card. Claire Daly Stampin Up Melbourne Australia

The flowers and stems on this Photopolymer stamp set are separate (so you can add various flower heads), but it's super easy to line them up with the guide on the stamp. This made the stamping off really easy as I just did the leaves first and the flowers. The triple banner punch made cutting the banner ends super easy, and then it was just popping the die cut sentiment on top.

Here's today's colour combination. I'm rather partial to this one. It seems fresh and summery in a cold Melbourne week.

Have a fabulous day and I'll see you back here again tomorrow.
