Hello there. It's blog hop time again with my super talented team members from the Art with Heart Stampin' Up! team in Australia. Today we would like to preview some of the amazing new products from the upcoming 2017/18 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue which launches on June 1st. Be sure to ask any of the girls along the way for a copy of the new catalogue! We love to share what we are making with each other and with the stamping community. This is just one of the fun sharing activities we do each month, so if you are looking for a fun community of stampers to join ask us how quick, easy and affordable it is.

I am focusing on the Daisy Delight bundle of stamp set and punch for my cards. These will be available to purchase June 1st and there is a lovely coordinating Designer Series Paper as well.

  Stampin Up 2017/18 Annual Catalogue Sneak Peek Daisy Delight stamp set / Daisy Punch / emboss resist technique / seaside embossing folder / Powder Pink / Berry Burst

For this card I have embossed the daisy twice onto Shimmery White cardstock and then watercoloured over the top using two of the new InColours, Powder Pink and Berry Burst. Once dry, I cut out with the daisy punch and layered with a dimensional. The new Faceted Gems (also coming June 1st) are perfect flower centres, They come in clear (shown here) and gold.

In my second card, I have featured some of the  Beautiful Daisy Designer paper, along with paper from the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack (LOVE THIS!). You will also spy a new punch shape, and a new greeting from a great birthday stamp set / bundle called Happy Birthday Gorgeous. This time I have stamped the daisy in Wisteria Wonder ink onto the same coloured cardstock. I have used a cold faceted gem for the flower centre.

My final card features what I am sure is going to be one of my new favourite colour combinations for the new catalogue - Lemon Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide. This time I curled the daisy petals a little and added some Lemon Lime Ink (which turned out too hard to see because it's such a perfect match to the cardstock). For the flower centre, I have coloured some of the Perfect White Accents (in current catalogue) with a black sharpie and grouped them together.

For my background, I smooshed (that is a word you know!) onto a non stick BBQ sheet and then spritzed it and pressed the Shimmery White cardstock onto it (I did each colour separately).  You will also notice a new trim - and it's COPPER!! It's a loose -weave copper trim with zig zag stitching and will be available on June 1st. The cool thing is you can spread the fibres out which gives a great distressed look.

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.

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.

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.
