Welcome to the May blog hop for the lovely Art With Heart team girls. Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative products using supplies from the upcoming 2019 - 2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. If you would like a copy of the brand new annual catalogue, contact any of the girls on the blog hop and we will get in touch with you.

My projects feature a beautiful new Designer Paper called Mosaic Mood. This paper pack didn't immediately jump out at me in the catalogue, but then we received a pack as an all attendee give away on the last day of Onstage. Once opening the pack, the beautiful colours jumped right out at me, as did the clear embossed parts which add beautiful texture and interest. It's a really pretty 12 x 12 paper pack.

I have used the paper to make two cards for some friends that needed a virtual hug recently. There are lots of beautiful floral mosaic images to cut from the paper, and I used those as the feature of my cards.

For some added interest on this first card, I embossed one of the layers with the Subtle embossing folder, which gives a beautiful textured but subtle effect. I also did some very light stamping on the base card (the leaf image is from Healing Hugs stamp set). My greeting on this card is from a set carrying over into the new 2019 Annual Catalogue, called Flourishing Phrases. The inside sentiment says 'with warmth and caring from me'. The greeting on the front of the card fit's nicely in one of the stitched circles from the Stitched Shapes die set. This is one of my most used die sets because it has ovals, squares and circles in the one pack.

As you can see, there's a range of beautiful colours in this paper. The catalogue tells me that the coordinating colours are: Blushing Bride. Crushed Curry, Garden Green, Mint Macaron, Soft Suede, Terracotta Tile, Very Vanilla and Whisper White. I adapted that a little and used the following colours to give my cards a soft pastel look:

Claire's Stampin' Up! Colour Combination: Blushing Bride, Mint Macaron, Soft Sea Foam, So SaffronI haven't used So Saffron in what feels like forever, but I think it works really well with this new Mosaic Mood Designer Series Paper. The greeting I have used on this card is from Healing Hugs, another set carrying over to the 2019 Annual Catalogue. 

Stampin Up 2019 Annual Catalogue Mosaic Mood DSP and Healing Hugs. Get well card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

I've used the Stitched Rectangle Dies, and the Stitched Labels dies for the layers of my greeting. I do like my stitched dies, and any interesting shapes I can use for stamping greetings or layering. This large stitched label is one of my favourite dies.

AWHT Stampin' Up! Team Colour Creations Week 49 - Soft Suede

Colour Creations 300

It's been quite a few weeks since I have been able to participate in the Art With Heart Team Colour Creations blog hop. I have to admit that Soft Suede isn't the most inspiring colour for me to jump back in on, but then I saw a picture of a hotel suite today and the colour combination really inspired me as a great colour combination for my nephews 21st birthday card.

Here's the picture. It's the gorgeous Langham Hotel in Sydney. I see a touch of Soft Suede, some Sahara Sand and also one of our new Stampin' Up! 2019 InColours, Pretty Peacock.

Tlsyd-events-ballroom-lobby-1680-945

My card has used a lot more Pretty Peacock than the combination here as used, but I think it still works great with the Soft Suede. I have used one of my favourite new stamp sets in the new 2019 Annual Stampin' Up! catalogue, and one that is PERFECT for masculine cards, A Good Man.

Masculine / male 21st birthday card using Stampin Up 2019 A Good Man Stamp Set. Pretty Peacock color / colour combination. Card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

Here is the colour combination I used. The watercolour paper is more an off-white, which softens the combination compared to the white here.

Stampin Up Color / Colour combination of Pretty Peacock, Sahara Sand, Soft Suede.This card really demonstrated to me how much I am loving the various types of stitched dies we carry at the moment. I think they give a really professional finish. I have used the Stitched Shape Dies and Stitched Rectangle dies on this card. To colour my image, I have used Blender Pens picking up the ink inside the ink pad lids (Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Seaside Spray and Pretty Peacock).

I also used the Subtle embossing folder (PERFECT folder for male cards) to give some additional interest to the Soft Suede and Sahara Sand layers.

Copper foil and copper embossing looks perfect with these colours, so that's what I have gone for. My greeting is from Perennial Birthday, heat embossed using our copper embossing folder. I have cut the numbers from our copper foil card, The dies used for that were the Little Numbers dies which have sadly retired some time ago, but were a perfect size for my card.

Now it's time to head back over to Catherine Proctor, to see what else the lovely Art With Heart team ladies have created using Soft Suede this week. Enjoy! 

Pop back in on Thursday for the monthly Art With Heart Team blog hop where we will be showcasing some more new catalogue products.

Stamping with Shimmer Paint: Stampin' Up! Everything Rosy Product Medley

Today I have a couple of cards for you featuring stamping with the Rose Gold shimmer paint in the Stampin' Up! May 2019 Everything is Rosy product medley. This gorgeous medley of products is STILL available to purchase but ONLY until the end of May, or until it's sold out, whichever comes first.

Find the Everything is Rosy Medley HERE in the online store.

Last week I showed you several cards and a scrapbook page using the Everything is Rosy dies, die cuts and Designer Paper. We also used the stamps with ink and embossing.  Today, I want to show you two cards I have made using some stamping with the shimmer paint which is included in the medley.

Stampin Up Everything is Rosy 2019 card including stampin with rose gold shimmer paint. Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

For my first card, I have stamped onto the Pretty Peacock (a new 2019 InColour) cardstock using the small leaf stamp in the Everything is Rosy stamp set. I like the effect this creates with various shades of the Pretty Peacock showing through. The process of stamping with the shimmer paint is super easy. I just paint the stamp with the paint using one of my Aquapainters, and stamp! To clean the paint of the stamp I used a baby wipe and rinsed straight away in running water. I rinsed my Aquapainter under running water too. It was super easy. 

I have used Rococo Rose as my pink this time (another new 2019 InColour) to soften the colours. The rose gold shimmer paint actually coordinates really well with Rococo Rose. I have added some of the shimmer paint onto the die cut flowers and die cut some leaf branches in rose gold to coordinate.

In this next card, I have stamped the two different leaf images onto my Shimmery White cardstock layer. It's so hard to really pick up how beautiful the stamped shimmer paint looks in real life. You will see in this image I have 'stamped off' with some of the images. This was just stamping again straight after the first stamping.

I have used Pretty Peacock and Rococo Rose, two of the new 2019-2021 InColours again . You will also spot some other new products coming on June 4th with the new 2016 Annual Catalogue. I have used the Stitched Nested Labels (finding this shape really versatile and great for layering), the Woven Threads Designer Series Paper (which coordinates with ALL the new InColours), and the new GORGEOUS scalloped linen ribbon which comes in all the 5 new InColours.

I hope you like today's cards. If you like the Everything is Rosy product medley, don't forgot to grab it it in the online store, as it's only available in May, or while stocks last, whichever comes first.

See you back here tomorrow night for our team Colour Creations blog hop.

Get the Stampin' Up! 'Hugs from Shelli' Paper Pumpkin Kit in Australia

04.10.19_SHAREABLE_2_SHELLI_GLOBAL_SP

Even though we don't have Paper Pumpkin (yet!) here in Australia, we are excited to have a very special global release kit available from today while supplies last! It's just $37 for supplies (including the stamps and ink) to make 12 cards (3 each of 4 designs) with coordinating envelopes.

Find the 'Hugs from Shelli' kit HERE in my online Stampin' Up! store.

The 'Hugs from Shelli' kit is super special, as it was designed by our Cofounder Shelli Gardner.

Shelli paper pumpkin

The Shelli kit from Paper Pumpkin comes in a beautifully decorated box and includes the following:

  • An exclusive stamp set not available anywhere else
  • One Classic Stampin’ Spot® from our Classic ink collection
  • Paper and crafting materials to create 12 cards (3 cards of 4 unique designs)
  • 12 exclusive, coordinating envelopes
  • Adhesives and embellishments for all 12 cards

While we got to see just one of the four cards and it's printed coordinating envelope at OnStage (see below), the other three card designs are a surprise to demonstrators too! Part of what makes a Paper Pumpkin kit special is that we don’t reveal the projects inside the box ahead of time. This allows the purchaser to experience an element of surprise and excitement when they receive their kit in the mail.

Here's the beautiful sample we got to make at OnStage in Aukland.

Shelli PP 1

I love the beautiful nature theme, the vintage feel of the layering, the soft colours and the combination of textures. 

Shelli 2

Coordinating Stampin’ Up! colours: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Old Olive, Petal Pink, Pool Party, Pretty Peacock, Soft Suede and Very Vanilla

Shelli describes the kit as ‘A touch of earthy and elegant spring with lots of layers and texture.’

And remember, everything in the Hugs from Shelli kit is pre-cut and ready to go. No planning or prep is required . . . which make these kits perfect for a turnkey class or event. The only thing you will need to supply is a Clear Block D size (7.3 x 6.8cm).

Don't delay in getting this beautiful and special Paper Pumpkin kit for just $37.00 today.  Find it HERE in the online store.

Stampin' Up! Everything Rosy 12x12 Scrapbook Page and Cards

I'm so glad I purchased the limited release  Everything Rosy product medley from Stampin' Up! this month. It wasn't something I needed but given how drawn I was to the paper and rose gold, I thought it would encourage me to get some creating happening. I wasn't wrong! Once I opened that pack, so many ideas came to mind. I find a bunch of coordinating products make creating so quick and easy as well.

Check out Everything Rosy HERE in my online Stampin' Up! store. It's only available until the end of May, but may sell out earlier than that. It's a great collection of products that will keep you crafting for weeks and months. Don't forget to use the May Host Code (7RYV9KJV) when you shop online and I'll send you a small free gift in June.

Everything rosy 3

My first project was a 12x12 scrapbook page which came together SO quickly! I just used a couple of the 6x6 pieces of paper, some of the die cut flowers and some rose gold elements I cut with the dies.

I splattered some of the Rose Gold Shimmer Paint (included in the medley) onto the 12x12 Night of Navy cardstock using an Aquapainter dipped into the paint and flicking on the lid (we were shown this by Shelli at OnStage).

I tucked a journaling card into the right hand side of the photo and used the Circle Tab Punch and a scrap of the Everything Rosy DSP to make a pull tab. The theme of the page is 'Life. Right Now' so my journaling card will just have random things that are happening in my life right now. I have made pages like this at various stages of my life, and I love looking back on them.

Next up I made some cards. So many great labels and die cuts included with the medley, and the labels fit the greetings in the stamp set really well. This one is just a classic combination of Night of Navy, Rose Gold and Whisper White.

You may be able to see I stamped the branch image onto the card in Night of Navy ink to carry through my design a bit. To extend the white floral die cut, I cut it in half horizontally and tucked either side of the greeting.

Next up is a bit more pink in the mix! One of the main reasons I got this medley is to make cards for my many nieces. The colours, flowers and rose gold foiling suit them perfectly.

Isn't the stamped greeting on this card perfect for girls and women?  I really like this font too.

My final card was a super quick thank you card. Again I have used some tone on tone stamping to carry the design through to the base card.

This small label is perfectly sized for the thank you stamp in the bundle. You could also colour your pearls with the Rose Gold Shimmer Paint, although I quite like them as they are too.

I hope this has given you lots of ideas of how to use the Everything Rosy Medley. You can find LOTS more ideas on my Everything Rosy Pinterest Board.

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a lovely day.
