This week's card is all about copper! Our new Brightly Gleaming Suite in the 2019 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue (starting September 4th - have you got your copy?) has a beautiful copper foil theme, which will add real WOW to your Christmas projects.

Stampin Up, Brightly Gleaming, Christmas Gleaming, 2019, Holiday Catalog, Christmas Card. By Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

This suite contains a stamp set and a punch pack duo for 2 sizes of ornaments. In addition to the copper foil accented Designer Series Paper, there are also some gorgeous embellishments in this suite. A ribbon with copper foil writing, some foil elements and the cute copper Star Designer Elements I have used on this card. This catalogue also introduces the Delicata metallic ink pads to our range.  These ink pads give a fabulous lustre stamped finish. They take a little longer to dry (10 minutes air dry and you are done) and it's recommended not to heat dry as it can reduce the lustre. I have used Celestial Copper Delicata ink pad for my greeting (which is from the Christmas Gleaming stamp set in this suite). It's very hard to capture the gorgeous lustre in a photo.

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.

Stampin Up 2019 Annual Catalogue Mosaic Mood DSP and Flourishing Phrases. Sympathy card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

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.

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 39 - Poppy Parade

Colour Creations 300

Welcome back to another Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop. Today we are playing with Poppy Parade, one of the past In-colours that was reintroduced as a core colour last June, due to its popularity. Poppy parade is a lovely bright red, lending itself to happy bright colour combinations.

Poppy Parade

I struggled a bit with my card for this challenge, as Poppy Parade isn't a colour I normally make the star of a card. In the end, I found a combination I liked, by combining just one other colour (Granny Apple Green) with Basic Black and Whisper White.

This black and white gingham piece from the Botanical Butterfly DSP is really getting a workout. I love the whole DSP pack actually. Will be sad when Saleabration is over at the end of March and it's no longer available to earn. I have also used the Painted Seasons Saleabration Bundle (Level 2) here, and a couple of my favourite Framelit sets: Stitched Labels and Stitched Shapes.

Here's the Poppy Parade colour combination I used in case you want to save it.

Once I had finished the main card, I loved the colour combination so much that I made some extra more simple cards. I love having 'Hello' cards on hand as I find these are great to send with customer and team gifts.

AWHT Stampin' Up! Team Colour Creations Week 38 - Pool Party

Colour Creations 300

Time for the Art With Heart Stampin' Up! Team's Colour Creations. I'm so glad I have been able to create for this blog hop again. I get so much enjoyment creating and sharing with the girls in my team, and for you. This week we are playing with Pool Party. I think this is my most used blue in the Stampin' Up! colour range.

Pool Party

For my crd this week, I have made a fun card using the Saleabration stamp set So Hoppy Together. Did you know you can purchase Framelits for this Saleabration set just in March? Check the product links at the end of my post. The Framelits makes this set so much more versatile and give projects great dimension. Frogs were made to jump afterall!

Stampin Up So Hoppy Together and cordinating framelits. Card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Melbourne Australia.

My colour combination comes straight from the Painted Season DSP I have used - Pool Party, Lemon Lime Twist  and Call Me Clover. I could have also used Granny Apple Green to coordinate with the ribbon. I just added a little bit of colour to the frog with my Light Crumb Cake Stampin' Blends. The word 'birthday' comes from the Well Words stamp set in the Occasions Catalogue (this is an AWESOME sentiment set).

Now it's time to head over to Catherine Proctors blog, who puts this challenge together each week. What would we do without her? Catherine is the Northern Beaches area of Sydney if you are looking for a demonstrator in that area. If you right click on the list of names on Catherine's page, you can open each project in a new window, which saves you having to move back and forward all the time,

Let me show you all the fabulous sentiments in the Well Said stamp set. You can buy it with or without the Well Wriiten Framelits (the bundle is at a 10% discount). Having a set like this is a great investment because it allows you to put together so many different sentiments. It is a significant investment, but one I really think you will well and truly get your money's worth. You will find the links to these products and the bundle, in the product links at the end of my post.

Well Said

Well Written

I hope you have enjoyed our Pool Party creations this week. Thanks for stopping by. Looking forward to seeing you back here in a couple of days. I have a scrapbook page for you next.

Have a happy day,

Claire
