Art With Heart Team May Stampin' Up! Blog Hop - 2017 Annual Catalogue Sneak Peeks!
May 18, 2017
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.
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.
I have you have enjoyed my sneak peek. I am sure you are going to love everything the girls have for you tonight. We get so excited when it's blog hop night, as the process of sharing with each other is equally as exciting for us as sharing with you! We have such a lovely group of friends in our team and it's great to see some of the newer team members developing the confidence to start blogging and sharing their creations. If this sounds like something you would enjoy, ask about joining our fabulous Art With Heart Team. It is such a friendly and supportive stamping community.

Great cards Claire, although I am drawn to the second one with the wood textures DSP. I just love that paper!

What fantastic cards Claire, I love how you smooshed ink onto a non stick BBQ sheet. What a great effect. This Daisy suite with the punch is going to be very popular. I really like the wood texture papers too!

Beautiful cards Claire. The daisy is going to be so popular. Love your smooshing with those colours.

Just love the embossed and water coloured flowers on the first card, Clare. So pretty!

Oh Claire, your cards are beautiful! The colours in your first card are so gorgeous! I love this bundle! I have had an absolute ball participating in this hop and thank you for encouraging me to have a go. Bring on the next one!

Love the Daisy's they are just perfect for any card, any occasion. Three very different cards with the same set. Love the colours of the 3rd card.
Posted by: Tania | May 19, 2017 at 10:37 AM
These are all so beautiful! I love the simplicity of the first card, and how the woodgrain draws the eye to the beautifully coloured daisy. The smooshing looks pretty spectacular too.

Glad I've taken delivery of Daisy Delight and the punch this week because I'm itching to try out some of your inspiration. They're all fantastic, and each so different from the next.

Wow!!! Claire 3 amazing cards, just goes to show how versatile this set really is. My fav is your lemon/lime twist simply stunning colours and the dark wood textured background also a stunner and your first card pretty and feminine.

I always love seeing your cards - you have such an eye for design, everything is balanced! Such great cards to show off this set. Daisies are on the wishlist now! ;)
Posted by: Andrea Roberts | May 19, 2017 at 02:50 PM
Love them all Claire, I didn't realise the greeting from Happy Birthday Gorgeous fitted the new punch
Posted by: Rachel Woollard | May 19, 2017 at 10:08 PM
Three such different looks with one punch, love them all. The funky lemon-lime twist is my favourite though
Posted by: Rachel Woollard | May 21, 2017 at 10:04 AM
Never would I think the daisy punch and stamp set could be so much fun and so vivid on projects! Gonna have to investigate further lol! Great projects Claire xx
Posted by: Kim | May 21, 2017 at 04:08 PM
Great cards Claire. I really like the texture and simple design of the first card.
Posted by: Kathryn Mangelsdorf | May 21, 2017 at 06:54 PM
These cards are gorgeous! I am interested in understanding what a non-stick bar-b-q sheet is. Perhaps it is my lack of understanding the Australian English! 😀

Gorgeous cards, Claire. Love the embossed and water coloured daisy - another look entirely. The colour combo in the last card is so vibrant.
Posted by: Judy May | May 22, 2017 at 09:19 PM
Just beautiful Claire. Colours are delightful and they make me want to start making a few for my birthday box. Thanks for them all.
Much love, Jessie x
