Stampin' Up! Lovely in Linen Suite Birthday Card

Good morning friends. Today I have an embossed birthday card using one of my favourite suites and DSP's in the Stampin' Up! 2022 Annual Catalogue. This is a pretty quick and simple one to put together. The star of the show is the embossed Happy Birthday panel, which is part of the Let's Celebrate Mini Embossing Folder Duo (the other folder is Congratulations). The Lovely in Linen DSP is also a favourite of mine.

The colour combination is Pale Papaya, Sweet Sorbet, Night of Navy and white, These colours look amazing together.

The DSP I have used is the 12x12" Lovely in Linen DSP pack, which has some really great patterns in these colours.

The sentiment I have used is from the coordinating Lovely and Lasting stamp set, which coordinates with the Lasting Label Punch. There are some really great sentiments in this set, and I really like the stamp that is the outline of the punch shape too. I have popped some Pale Papaya Open Weave Ribbon under the label for some added texture and interest.

Stampin' Up! Leaf Fall Embossing Folder and the Sponged Embossing Technique.

Hello stampers. Today I have a quick and easy technique for you, but one that can create a real WOW effect with your embossing folders. I have used the Leaf Fall embossing folder from the 2022 Stampin' Up! July to December Mini Catalogue.

Stampin Up sponged Leaf Fall 3D embossing folder. Claire daly, Australia.

I started by embossing a piece of Shimmery White cardstock in the Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder. Then added colour with sponge daubers tapped onto my ink pads. I started with Soft Sea Foam, and then I added in some Mossy Meadow and Cajun Craze ink on part sections of the embossing. My sentiment is from the Ringed with Nature stamp set, and is stamped in Early Espresso. The embossed piece is mounted onto a mat of Early Espresso and then onto an Old Olive base card. Finally I added a bow using a length of Linen Thread, and the Gold Trim from the Simply Elegant Trim Pack.

I really like the earthy colour combination for this card.

Stampin' Up! Boughs of Holly Suite and Leaves of Holly Bundle

Hello friends. 'Tis the season to be getting started on your handmade Christmas cards. I really value sending handmade cards to my friends and family. I love the tradition of giving and receiving cards, and having them displayed among my Christmas decorations. It brings warmth to my heart. That is worth devoting time to.

I really love traditional Christmas colours for creating. The Boughs of Holly DSP ticks all the boxes for me, as it coordinates with 3 of our red colours, and 3 of our green colours. I also added in an additional green in this card. Here's a look at the delightful Boughs of Holly DSP. The imagery is so gorgeous and I love the Poinsettias especially.

Here's a look at the card I made using this DSP and the Leaves of Holly bundle from the suite.

I have used Evening Evergreen and Old Olive as the greens, and coloured the berries on the Textural Elements embellishments with Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blends.  I love the dimension you get with these pressed wood embellishments.

I have used gold metallic trim (from the Simply Elegant Trim Pack) on this card, but the suite also includes Natural Woven Ribbon which can be coloured with Stampin' Blends. Linen thread would also be a fabulous embellishment to use with this DSP.

This Birthday Piggy and Playful Piggy Dies for the Perfect Partners Promotion

I was excited to see that This Birthday Piggy was one of the 6 stamp sets which have new die sets available for purchase during September. I had already purchased the stamp set as I loved it when it came out in the 2022 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. I loved the crisp outline images which are versatile for colouring and paper piecing and I also thought it was a great set for children's birthday cards. It has great sentiments too, in a really nice font. The dies just elevate that versatility even further. In addition to outline dies (and this set would have been tricky to fussy cut imo), the dies include a cute cart, extra gift, flowers, leaves, grass, a banner and the cutest little bandana for the pig!

You can purchase the dies by themselves as I did, or purchase the dies and stamp set together for a 10% discount. Browse all the 6 die sets available during the Perfect Partners promotion HERE.

Here's a look at the This Birthday Piggy stamp set and the Playful Piggy Dies. (Click on the image to see it larger)

Here's a card I have made with this bundle.

Stampin Up This Birthday Piggy birthday card by Claire Daly, Australia

For this one I have blended some Pool Party ink onto Shimmery White cardstock and then coloured the image with Stampin' Blends. I used S1000 from the Neutrals Collection Stampin Blends for the pig, with some light Flirty Flamingo in the ears and on the nose. I used Mint Macaron for the candle and balloon, and Daffodil Delight for the candle flame. The cake is coloured with both shades of Flirty Flamingo. For the additional die cuts I have used crumb cake for the wagon, Mint Macaron for the gift and Flirty Flamingo for the banner and ribbon on the gift. I love the embossing detail from the dies, especially on the cute banner!
