Simple and easy handmade card ideas using Stampin' Up! supplies

Hello stamping friends. Today I am sharing with you some simple and easy handmade card ideas using Stampin' Up! supplies and I also have a free PDF tutorial for you to show you exactly what I did with each card. These are great cards for beginners, and the stampset, watercolour pencils and note card and envelope packs are inexpensive items to get you started in your card making hobby.

Even though I have used Stitched Rectangle dies in my card, I have given the measurements in the tutorial to just cut a rectangle for these pieces. You could also substitute a rectangle of patterned paper for the two cards where I have used the vellum doily coloured with Stampin' Blends (again the measurements are in the tutorial). The vase and the mason jar are from the Jar of Flowers bundle which I have shown below. They are a great compliment to the Four Seasons Floral stamp set I have used in this project. The Four Seasons Floral stamp set is great for beginners and is just $24.

I couloured the images using Watercolour Pencils and a Blender Pen (you can also use a Water Painter). You need to stamp the images onto the card using a black Stazon ink pad, so that the outline doesn't run when you add the moisture from the Blender Pen. Stazon is a solvent based ink pad which is why it doesn't run. I have combined a few different colours of pencil in colouring these images, which gives a more realistic effect.

We sell two different sets of watercolour pencils and you can find them both HERE in the online store

I used the jar punch (which is shaped and sized just like a mason jar) for the vase in this card. This can be purchased alone, or as part of the Jar of Flowers Bundle (where you get 10% off by purchasing them together).

There are lots of other floral shapes in the Jar of Flowers stamp set, which coordinate with the jar punch too. The Jar Punch can also be purchased separately.

4 New Features of the 2019 Annual Stampin' Up! Catalogue.

 

The bundles are all listed at the front of the Catalogue.

One of the things everyone LOVES about Stampin' Up! products, is the fabulous coordination. A great new catalogue feature this year, is that all the bundles (products which have a coordinating die set, or a coordinating punch), are listed with pictures at the front of the catalogue in a special bundles section, as well as through the catalogue as they were previously. All of these bundles are also 10% off which is a nice saving. You are also directed to the page in the catalogue which shows the products along with samples. I love this handy new feature!

You can also find the product bundles HERE in the online store.

 

The Suite pages now include one item number, for those who want to buy everything in the whole suite.

The new catalogue has 12 exciting product suites throughout the catalogue (see a summary of them HERE). As well as bundles or stamp sets, suites include coordinating Designer Series Paper, and other coordinating products which may include embellishments, ribbon/trim, embossing folders, journals. boxes or bags. Each suite has a double page spread in the catalogue (followed by additional pages) where all of the products are listed. The first item number listed will also be a single item number for the full product suite (which also includes the bundle at the discounted price). Very handy for those who love it all in a suite!

Designer Series Papers are shown BIGGER.

There are some seriously gorgeous Designer Series Papers in this catalogue! As well as being able to see them HERE, and in their normal section towards the back of the catalogue; you will also see some larger images within each suite section. This gives you an opportunity to really get a good look at the beautiful papers.

We also now have a Beginners Brochure / Experience Creativity Section (in paper / online store)

Sometimes the whole catalogue can be a bit overwhelming for completely new stampers, so this year we have also introduced a beginners brochure which includes a couple of catalogue items, but also some exclusive items which are perfectly suited to simple stamping for beginners.

You can also find these beginner projects in the Experience Creativity Section in the Online Store. If you are a beginner stamper and would like to get your hands on a beginner brochure, just contact me and I would be happy to send you one.

I hope this post has helped you understand and get the most out of this lovely new catalogue. Don't forget to contact me if you would like to get your own copy of the catalogue.
