Stampin' Up! Posted for You Bundle

Hello friends. Today I'd like to showcase what I think is my favourite new punch in the Stampin' Up! 2020 Annual Catalogue, the Rectangle Postage Stamp Punch, and the coordinating Posted for You stamp set (buy them together for a 10% discount using the links at the end of the post).

This is such a great bundle which is really reasonably priced ($54 for the stamp set and punch together). It's a great way to use up little scraps of patterned paper, and you can make mini works of art too.

I embossed the 'Love' image in whote embossing powder onto watercolour paper, and added a watercolour wash of Blushing Bride. When that was dry, I added in some additional colour in a slightly more concentrated shade of Blushing Bride, on the leaves, flower and letters.  The fine water painter in the trio of painters was perfect for this task.

The sentiment and round postage stamp image are included in the Posted for You stamp set and have been stamped in Gray Granite to coordinate with the Peony Garden DSP. The small heart is die cut from the Trio of Tags dies.

You might also spy some cute little embellishments on there. I LOVE these new Elegant Faceted Gems. There are 3 colours in two sizes in the pack: clear, pearlescent white and petal pink. They are the perfect addition to elegant cards as the name implies. I love them so much I just ordered a bunch of these at my shared host code gifts for June customers.

Product List


Stampin' Up! Bonus Days are Back

Hey stampers. July will be a fun month as you will earn bonus coupons with qualifying orders with our Bonus Days Promotion.

7-01-20_dheader_bonusdays_naspuk

My customers love bonus days, becuase there is no limit to how many you can earn, and no mimimum order amount to redeem them in August. 

Here's how they work:

  • For each $90 spent (before postage) in one transaction between July 1st and August 3rd, you will earn a Bonus Days coupon worth $9. So for example if you spent $190 before postage, you would earn 2 coupons for that order, and there is no limit to how many coupons can be earned in one order.
  • Coupons can be earned on any type of order: online order (and you can still use the host code below), email or phone order. You do need an email address to participate though, as this is how the coupons are delivered after your order. 
  • When the coupons arrive, put them in a safe place (I make a folder in my email program) so they are there ready to use in August.
  • When August 4th rolls around, it's time to redeem your coupons (through to Auguest 31st). This is also the start of the August to December Holiday catalogue so you will have lots of new things to consider spending them on. 

If you have any questions about Bonus Days, let me know and I can help you.

Here's the July Host Code which can also be used on the same orders as Bonus Days, if you are shopping online (read how the host code works HERE).

Prized Peony stamp set and the Rectangle Postage Stamp Punch, with a new video.

Hello friends. Today we are playing with the Peony Garden product suite and I have also incorporated my fave new punch from the 2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue, the Rectangle Postage Stamp Punch.

Peony Garden | Prized Peony 2020 Stampin' Up! card with video by Claire Daly Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

There's lots of layers and textures in this one! Here are the measurements of the layers I have used:

  • Base card is a 14cm x 14cm Blushing Bride card
  • Layer 2 is a piece of Blushing Bride cardstock 13.5cm square, which I have embossed with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder (see links at end of post) which is attached with Stampin' Seal.
  • Layer 3 is a piece of the Gray Granite DSP 11.5cm squared. This acts as a mat to layer 4 (attached with Stampin' Seal), and that combined layer is attached to layer 2 with Dimensionals.
  • Layer 4 is a piece of Blushing Bride cardstock 11cm square, and I have arranged punched Peony Garden DSP over the cardstock, leaving a small gap between each one to show the punched edges and colour through (see picture below which shows how I arranged the punched shapes).
  • Layer 5 is a 7cm square piece of Blushing Bride cardstock, which acts as a mat to Layer 6 (adhered with Stampin' Seal). That combined layer is attached to layer 4 using Dimensionals.
  • Layer 6 is a 6.6cm square piece of Shimmery White cardstock and the sentiment is stamped in Gray Granite.
  • Layer 7 is lots of looped ribbon and trim for texture (see the video below); and finally
  • Level 8 is the single peony stamp from Prized Peony Stamp Set . I embossed it in white, and added a wash of Blushing Bride with my Water Painters, and then added some additional shading with Rococo Rose.

Here's a look at how I did the Rectangle Postage Stamp arrangement. I arranged them on the corder of a piece of A4 cardstock so some would be overlapping the edges and be a straight cut when I trimmed this piece to size.

If you are relatively new to cardmaking, and would like to see how I have used and attached the ribbons and trims for added texture, I have created a short video for you.
