Watercoloured Poinsettia 2020 Slimline Christmas Card using Stampin Up Poinsettia Petals

Hello crafty friends. Today I have another slimline card for you, a 2020 Christmas card using Stampin' Up! Poinsettia Petals bundle from the 2020 Stampin' Up! August to December Mini Catalogue. The whole Poinsettia Place Suite is so pretty!

Stampin Up Watercoloured Poinsettia Petals 2020 Christmas Card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

For my card, I started with a 21cm x 10cm slimline Crumb Cake card base and I added a layer of the Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper. This has a luscious flocked design on vellum and is so pretty, plus adds great texture. I've added more texture by looping some Braided Linen Trim below where I planned for my flower and greeting to go.

To create my flower, I gold embossed the three different sized poinsettia's from the Poinsettia Petal stamp set onto Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper (links below). I then spritzed with water and used then added watery ink from the lid of my ink pad (created this by dropping a couple of drops of water into the ink residue in the lid - just make sure you wipe with a paper towel when finished so you don't dilute your ink pad). Becuae the watercolor paper is wet, the colour quickly spreads and you get a random distribution of the colour. I love this messy watercolour look. I used tw colours on the flower, Real Red and Cherry Cobbler.

I layered these together with a Dimensional between each layer and the gorgeous Beaded Pearls (links below) as the flower centre.

Here's a closer look at the gorgeous Beaded Pearl flower centres. You get 18 pieces in a pack and they are approximately 1.3cm wide.

Love how all the layers look when they are put together.

Slimline cards are fun to make. There's a little more real estate to play with, but don't let that scare you.

Free PDF Tutorial for a Stampin' Up! Triangle Fancy Fold World of Good Suite / Beautiful World Bundle Card

Today I have a card which would be perfect for the men in your life, someone about to go travelling, or even a graduate. It's a very cool Triangle Fancy Fold where you can make two cards to an A4 piece of card. I have used the World of Good Product Suite from the 2020-21 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue.

The embellishments and stamped and die cut elements add lots of texture and interest to the card. The rectangle stamped panel folds up with the top triangle piece.

Stampin' Up! Mountain Air stamp set with ink blending for the sky and moon.

Today I have another version on an ink blended card I showed you last month. This one has different colours and I really like how they work together. It uses the Stampin' Up! Mountain Air stamp set from the 2020 Annual Catalogue and I have used Stampin' Up! sponge brayers to create the ink blending effect. There's also a bit of the Very Versailes Stamp Set in there, again from the 2020 Annual Catalogue.

I've created a video to show you how I achieved the ink blending and moon on this one.

I just love the Stampin' Up! Sponge Brayers for ink blending. They are really affordable and for just $14, you get two handles and 4 replaceable sponge heads.

My colours for the brayering are Rich Razzleberry, Mango Melody and So Saffron. My base card is Crumb Cake, and I added a thin mat of Basic Black around the stamped layer.

To embellish my card, I have used Gilded Gems.  My sentiment and the stamping on the banner under the sentiment, are both from Very Versailles stamp set. I also used this for the leaves and branches at the top of the card.

A simple Stampin' Up! Wishes and Wonder Christmas bundle Christmas card and all five made with this bundle, in one post.

Hey stampers.

Here's the last of the five of the Stampin' Up! Wishes and Wonder bundle Christmas cards I have made for Christmas 2020. Time to move onto some other suites. Before I do that, I wanted to showcase all five of the cards I have made with this bundle again. Let's start with today's card.

Create this Stampin Up Wishes and Wonder bundle Christmas card with easy instructions. Also features 'Tis the Season DSP. 2020 Christmas card by Claire Daly Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

I have used the 'Tis the Season Designer Series Paper for this card. This paper is fabulous as it coordinates with both Real Red and Cherry Cobbler for the reds, and with both Garden Green and Shaded Spruce for the greens. I really like the monotone small patterned designs too. I have used the Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce designs on this card. The paper pack is 6x6" and comes with 48 sheets (4 each of 12 double sided designs).

To make this card you need the following pieces of Designer Series Paper:

  • 10.3cm x 14.5cm (attaches to the base layer)
  • 7cm x 11cm and adhered to a mat of cardstock 7.2cm x 11.2cm - this is the Shaded Spruce piece on my card.
  • 9cm x 2.5cm and adhered to a mat of cardstock 9.2cm x 2.7cm - this is the Cherry Cobbler piece under the sentiment.

The piece for the sentiment is 1.9cm (3/4") and I cut banners in the end using the new Banners Pick a Punch which is designed to cut banners both ways in strips of cardstock 1/2", 3/4" and 1".

The Reindeer (cut in Brass Foil Cardstock) and Shaded Spruce stitched shape are both cut from the North Pole Wonder Dies which are a part of this bundle. I finished the card off with some looped gold edged ribbon (from the All the Trimmings Ribbon Combo pack) and some gilded gems.
