Stampin' Up! He's All That Bundle, He's the Man Suite and the August Pack of Pretties.

Hello friends.

I'm back with Claire's Pack of Pretties this month - a coordinated collection of my favourite Stampin' Up! papercraft products for a great price! This months kit is all about masculine cards and is only $31 including postage! It is built around the He's the Man Suite in the 2022-23 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue (Note: I have changed the name from 'Claire's Box of Pretties' to 'Claire's Pack of Pretties' to reflect a change in the packaging so I can keep the postage as low as possible).

You can get all the details HERE of exactly what's included in the August pack, which optional add-on products I think are a great match, and how to register and pay. Registrations close August 10th. As this kit is physical product, it's limited to Australian residents, but hobby demonstrators are also welcome to register if you just want a share of the suite at a lower price.

Here are some projects I have made using these products. Stay tuned for lots more during the month of August. Grab the August Pack of Pretties so you can play along!

This masculine thank you card uses the He's the Man DSP (in pack), die cuts (in pack), Rustic Metallic Adhesive Backed Gems (in pack) and a sentiment from Wildlife Wonder stamp set (optional add on). The base cardstock is Sahara sand (in pack), the greeting is stamped in Early Espresso ink (optional add on) and I used Stylish Shapes dies (a great all round versatile die set with 3 different stitched shapes - see links at end of post) to die cut a circle from one of the labels in the die cut sheet included with the DSP.

This masculine birthday card uses the He's the Man DSP (in pack), Rustic Metallic Adhesive Backed Gems (in pack), twine from Bakers Twine Essentials Pack and a sentiment and image from Wildlife Wonder stamp set (optional add on). Base card is Early Espresso (in pack) and stamping is in Early Espresso ink (optional add-on).

This masculine birthday card is for the car lovers and was quick and easy. It uses He's the Man DSP (in pack), Rustic Metallic Adhesive Backed Gems (in pack), and the He's All That bundle (optional add-on). The image from the stamp set is stamped in Early Espresso onto Sahara Sand cardstock (I was out of reinker when I stamped this - fixed now!). The base card for this one is Sahara Sand (in pack).

This masculine birthday card was another quick and easy one. It uses the He's the Man DSP (in pack), He's the man die cuts (in pack), and the Rustic Metallic Adhesive Backed Gems (in pack) . The base cardstock is Sahara Sand (in pack), and I used Stylish Shapes dies (a great all round versatile die set with 3 different stitched shapes - see links at end of post) to die cut the two flag end banners (under the die cut) from the DSP.

This final card is one I made a little while ago in my video tutorial demonstrating how to use masking paper. It uses the Campology stamp set (optional add-on), the He's the Man DSP (in pack), the Rustic Metallic Adhesive Backed Gems (in pack)  and the Bakers Twine Essentials Pack. The base cardstock is Mint Macaron (in pack), with some early Espresso cardstock (in pack) as a mat. I have used Mint Macaron ink pad (optional add-on) to stamp the trees (I added some Garden Green highlights with a marker), and stamped the tent in Black Stazon before watercolouring with Early Espresso ink pad, Crumb Cake ink pad and Water Painters. The video shows you how I used masking paper to position the tent in front of the trees (this card demonstration starts at 2:19 in the video).

Stampin' Up! Trimming the Tree 2022 Christmas Cards

Hey there friend.

Today I am sharing two Christmas cards I have made using the Stampin' Up! Trimming the Tree stamp set from the 2022-23 Annual Catalogue. This is a really traditional stamp set, so I have used traditional colours of reds, greens and gold.

Stampin Up Trimming the Tree 2022 Christmas cards by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator, Melbourne, Australia.

I think I like the one with touches of red best (mainly because I messed the other one up, but more about that later). The DSP I have used is Boughs of Holly, and I have used Distressed Gold Specialty paper as an accent (LOVE this paper!). 

Stampin Up Trimming the Tree 2022 Christmas cards by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator, Melbourne, Australia.

I have embossed the sentiment and bow on top of the tree in gold, and added some sparkly Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels. The tree is stamped onto Shimmery White, and is stamped in three layers (the stamps are photopolymer so easy to line up). The base layer is Soft Succulent, then I have used Shaded Spruce as the next layer and embossed gold for the trim on the tree. For the basket / container at the base of the tree I have used Crumb Cake. I've used the Rectangle Stitched Dies and Stylish Shapes dies to cut shapes. The gold corner pieces were cut with the Very Best Trio Punch. These are actually corners I cut from the other card and I will link to a video below showing you what I mean.

For my second card, I have used the same background DSP (Boughs of Holly) but have just stuck to greens and golds.

My ink colours were Soft Succulent as the base tree, and then Evening Evergreen as the highlights. I've embossed some ornaments from the stamp set onto the tree in addition to the trim, and for the tree topper I have used a die cut star (from the Tree Lot Dies) with a Champagne Rhinestone inside.

I made a bit of a mistake in using the Very best Trio Punch in making this card. If you look closely at the corner pieces, you will see that there is a concave and outward curved section. If you just move the punch around the cardstock corners, you DON'T end up with a mirror image. I learnt in the process that you need to punch one side and then flip the cardstock to get a mirror image shape. If you are on Facebook, this short video shows you what I mean, and also shows you how I got the corner pieces to use on other projects.

Now I have got the hang of it, I love my new Very Best Trio Punch.
