Stampin' Up! Bloom Where You are Planted Suite and Plentiful Plants Bundle

Hello stamping friends. 

Today I have a card that is perfect for the plant lovers (and that's me too!). This thank you card, features a brand new suite in the 2021 - 2022 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue, called Bloom Where You are Planted. The centre piece in this bundle is the Plentiful Plants Bundle of stamp set and coordinating dies. There is also a delightful plant themed Bloom Where You are Planted Designer Series Paper and some paper lattice pieces.

Stampin Up Plentiful Plants Bundle and Bloom Where You are Planted Suite. 2021 card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

I have used Soft Succulent (a new 2021 InColor) as the base card, and the brick paper is from the Bloom Where You are Planted DSP.

For this card, the posts and plants were actually cut from the DSP using the dies which coordinate with the images in a couple of the sheets of the paper. I also fussy cut a couple of others using paper snips. The macrame hanger and the pot stand were cut from Crumb Cake Cardstock using the dies. The lattice was sponged with Early Espresso ink (it comes as Kraft thick paper) so there was more definition between the bricks and the lattice. I tied a double layer of linen thread around the top of the card.

Here's a look at the bundle so you can see the leaves and pot dies included (that also coordinate with the paper - VERY cool).

The sentiment is the only thing stamped on this stamp set! I have used Early Espresso ink to stamp the greeting on Crumb Cake cardstock, and used the Everyday Label Punch to cut this out (I then trimmed some excess from the top and bottom of the label using my trimmer).

The good news is, you can buy all of these scrumptious products in one suite, all together. It's called the Bloom Where You are Planted Suite and you can find it HERE in my Online Stampin' Up! Store.

Stampin' Up! Hand Penned Petals Card Idea

Hello crafty friends.

Today I wanted to showcase one of the lovely new embossing folders in the 2021 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. It's called Pretty Flowers and I love the effect it has given me on the Highland Heather card, with the Hand Penned Petals bundle.

Stampin Up 2021 Hand Penned Petals bundle card using Pretty Flowers embossing folder. Congratulations card by Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

The embossing folder works really well with the Hand-Penned stamp set and bundle. I have used Daffodil Delight, stamped off Highland Heather and stamped off Garden Green on the floral image from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set, and which I die-cut using the Penned Flowers dies. I stamped the outline image and the sentiment in Basic Gray to soften the look a little. The circular die-cut is from the new Encircled in Beauty Dies. I totally love these new dies for adding interesting circle layers.

To finish off this card, I have used some Highland Heather grosgrain ribbon (new in 2021). It has a fine metallic fleck in it, so I have teamed it with some silver thread and white bakers twine. I've also used some of the Elegant Faceted Gems around the die cut image.

Colour Creations Showcase Week 48: So Saffron

106922496_10159992931478098_1171141180047246582_n

Hello friends. I'm finding myself with a little more creative time at the moment, so I am excited to be able to participate in some of the creative challenges with my Art with Heart team girls. This week's colour challenge is So Saffron, a very muted yellow and to be honest not one I have created with much in the last year. 

Here is my card. I chose to use the beautiful new Hand-Penned Petals bundle. By stamping off (stamping once on scrap paper and then onto your card without reinking) the Polished Pink and Soft Succulent once each, I came up with a soft colour combination using So Saffron.

Stampin Up Hand Penned Petals bundle (new for 2021) handmade thinking of you / sympathy card. Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

Here's the colour combination if you want to Pin It for future reference.

Stampin Up Color Combination 2021 InColors. Polished Pink, Soft Succulent, So Saffron and Basic Gray

One of the things I LOVE about this new bundle is it's designed for the stamping to be imperfect! I love the fresh vintage look you get when you stamp the solid colours for the leaves and flowers, and they don't quite fit perfectly. This really suits my style of stamping. I stamped the flowers and the sentiment in Basic Gray to tie in with the softer colour combination.

I have used the scalloped edge die from the coordinating Penned Flower Dies to create the left side edging. The flowers are two of the largest flower bunch, placed together. Here's a look at the Hand-Penned suite. You can buy the suite together (which includes 10% discount on the bundle), the bundle with a 10% discount, or individual components of the suite. All the product links for today's project are at the end of the post.

I have used a couple of other new products on my card too. My sentiment is from a great new stamp set with 11 sentiments, called Inspired Thoughts. I really love the font in this set. I have also used a great new die set called Encirled in Beauty, and there is just a peek of one of the decorative circle shapes poppng out unter the sentiment. This is going to be one of my favourite die sets for sure.

These are the new Encircled in Beauty Dies. The largest die in the set is 9.8 x 9.8cm, so they are perfectly sized for card fronts.

Stampin' Up! Pansy Patch Stamp Set with Two Step Stamping Technique

Hello friends.

Today I have a friends / thankyou card, made using the brand new Pansy Patch stamp set, and coordinating Pansy Petal Designer Series Paper.

View the products in the Pansy Petals suite HERE in my online Stampin' Up! store.

Stampin Up Pansy Patch stamp set / bundle from the 2021 Stampin Up Annual Catalogue.Handmade card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

I'm totally in love with this product suite! Pansies have always been one of my favourite flowers, as they give such vibrant colour in the winter months here in Australia. With the products in this bundle, you can make stamped or die cut (or a combination of both) multi-layered pansies.  Here's a look at the bundle.

Stampin Up Pansy Patch Bundle available from Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

The Pansy Petals 12x12" Designer Series paper has a bunch of coordinating floral patterns, and some gorgeous gingham and basic patterns on the reverse. This paper also coodinates with all 5 of the new 2021 InColors. You get 12 double sided sheets, 2 of each design.

Stampin Up Pansy Petals DSP available from Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

The Pansy Dies also cut out some of the printed images in the DSP which is very cool, and really increases the versatility of the suite.

For this card I have usd just the stamp set and DSP (I fussy cut the flowers and leaves). This is a two-step (actually a three or four step) stamp set, and it's super easy to line the different layers up because the stamps are Photopolymer.

  • Base layer of pansy: Magenta Madness
  • Highlight layer of pansy: Rich Razzleberry
  • Outer centre: left white
