Stampin' Up! For the Record birthday card for music lovers!

Hello there. Today I have a treat for anyone who loves music. It's a birthday card I made for my eldest son, who has this year started working in live sound production. Technically he doesn't own a lot of records, but this set is perfect for music lovers and any collector of old records!

The set I have used is For the Record, from the Stampin' Up! January to June Mini Catalogue.

I have used a piece of the Tahitian Tide DSP for the background paper, and combined it with Real Red, Basic Black and Basic White.

Stampin Up Tahitian Tide Colour / Color ComboI embossed the actual record in black embossing powder so it's nice and shiny. I cut it out using the largest circle in the Layering Circle Dies. The red striped piece is a stamp from the set, stamped in Real Red onto Basic White. The black and white piece is a piece of patterned paper from the new Perfectly Penciled  Designer Series Paper. The quotes are stamped straight from the stamp set in Tahitian Tide, Stazon Black and Real Red. I have finished off with some Tahitian Tide InColor dots which are coming on May 3rd!

Here's a closer look at the For The Record stamp set. This set won't be carrying over to the new 2022 Annual Catalogue, so if you like it, grab it before the January to June mini catalogue ends in June. You can find this set HERE in my online store.

Flower Tulips Vellum Thank You Card

Hello friends. Today is all about flowers, and tulips at that! I am using the Stampin' Up! Flowering Tulips bundle from the 2022 January to June Mini Catalogue. In Australia we are now into Autumn and I will soon be planting my tulips and other bulbs for my Spring and Winter flowers. 

The Flowering Tulips bundle includes a stamp set and a set of dies which cuts out images, but also includes some dies to make 3D tulips, including layering petals for three different tulips, the flower stem and leaves.

On this card I have also used the Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper. When a paper is quite bold as this one is, I often use vellum to soften some of the paper. That provides me with a focal point for the flower. To adhere the vellum, I used a cotton bud to smear a really thin layer of Multipurpose Glue on the paper until it was just tacky, and then placed the vellum on top. It adheres without the glue being visible through the vellum.

My flower is cut with Petal Pink cardstock and the petals sponged with Poppy Parade, to coordinate with the colours in the paper. My base card is Pool Party. To embellish my card I have used Linen Thread and Artistry Blooms Adhesive Backed Sequins.

The Flowering Tulips stamp set has some great greetings, including the circle greeting I have used.

Colour Creations Week 41 Sahara Sand with Stampin Up Cactus Cuties Bundle

Colour Creations 2021 to 2022 logo

Hey friends, welcome to another week of Colour Creations blog hop by the Art with Heart Team. This week we are playing with Sahara Sand.

Sahara Sand

My card is a super quick and easy one this week, as I was running a bit late to get it created and up on my blog. I had the colour scheme and products in my head though, so it was pretty quick to get it done. I have used the cactus Cuties punch bundle from the 2022 Stampin' Up! January to June Mini Catalogue.

Stampin Up Cactus Cuties Hello Card, by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

I have used Shimmery White for my background and have embossed the front layer with the Painted Texture embossing folder (I used my blending brushes to add dome Sahara Sand ink in the centre before I embossed). The pot is stamped in Sahara Sand, the cactus in Mint Macaron and the flowers in Polished Pink.

Here's a closer look at my colour combination. Stampin Up Sahara Sand, Mint Macaron, Polished Pink Colour Combination / Color Combo

Stampin' Up! New Horizon DSP & Grove Dies

Hello friends. Today I have a 'hello' card for you. I find these very handy to have on hand to send with catalogues to new customers or just to say hello to team members, friends and family. Today I have used the New Horizons DSP as the star of my card, with some elements from the Grove Dies. Both of these products are new in the 2022 January to June Mini Catalogue.

Stampin' Up! handmade Hello card using New Horizons Designer Series Paper, Grove Dies, and Pebble Enamel Embellishments. Card by Claire Daly, Melbourne, Australia.

My base card is Evening Evergreen, and I have just added a layer of the gorgeous New Horizons Designer Series Paper (see below), followed by a couple of die-cut deer from the Grove Dies (see below). I have added a 'Tammy Style Bow' as made famous by the amazing Tammy Wilson of Stamps, Paper, Scissors. I love the added texture this gives the card. My bow contains Evening Evergreen open weave ribbon (cut in half horizontally), the gold metallic twine from the Simply Elegant Trim pack, and Linen Thread. You can find all of these using the links at the end of the post.

I think one of my favourite parts of this card, is the self adhesive pebbles. These Pebble Enamel Embellishments (see below) are fabulous for creating scenes and added texture on your cards.
