4 Ways to use Delicata Metallic Inks on Your Stampin' Up! projects.

I am totally LOVING that Stampin' Up! are selling the Delicata metallic ink pads in the 2019 Holiday Catalogue. These are the BEST metallic inks on the market in my opinion. 

Some of the featured of these inks are:

  • Great lustre and shine that wont fade over time
  • Acid free and archival
  • Water based
  • Air dries in 10 minutes with no smudging at all once dry

We carry three colours of the full size ink pad and reinker :

Here's what they look like.

They are perfect for a range of techniques, and I have put together a video showing you how they stamp on a variety of cardstock types, as well as some techniques you can use with them on your Stampin' Up! projects. 

 

Here's a closer look at the cards I have shown in the video (the Seaside Spray reindeer card was featured yesterday in my Heart of Christmas week 4 post, and that includes step by step instructions to make that card).

In the watercolouring section of the video, I featured this Good Morning Magnolia card.

Here's a list of the Stampin' Up! products I have used to make this card (I stamped the image in Dove Grey Stazon. Unfortunately Stampin' Up! don't carry that yet, but I love it for watercolouring when I want a lighter edge effect).

  • Stamps: Good Morning Magnolia
  • Cardstock: Shimmery White and Rococo Rose
  • Ink: Petal Pink & Rococo Rose (petals), Smoky Slate (around the image), Mossy Meadow (leaves) and Celestial Copper (centre and highlights)
  • Tools: Aquapainter
  • Embellishments: Pearl Basic Jewels, Rococo Rose Scalloped Linen Ribbon, Linen Thread

The other card I featured was this one, showcasing the stamping and misting using Celestial Copper. The shimmery mist of Celestial Copper on the Early Espresso and Very Vanilla cardstock is much easier to see in the video close ups.

Here's a list of the Stampin' Up! products I have used on this card (you can see the links for these products at the end of the post):

  • Stamps: Very Versailles and Beauty and Joy (Holiday Catalogue), Butterfly Wishes (greeting; from Annual Catalogue)
  • Ink: Early Espresso, Garden Green and Celestial Copper
  • Cardstock: Very Vanilla and Early Espresso
  • Embellishments: Linen thread
  • Tools / other: Stampin' Spritzer, Isocol (rubbing alcohol)

These stamp pads are so awesome and will really add extra wow to your projects, Grab them in my online store using the links below.

Stampin' Up! Geared Up Garage Masculine Birthday Card

Hey Stampers. Today I have a masculine birthday card for you, using the Geared Up Garage stamp set and  coordinating Garage Gears dies, which carried over into the 2019 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. This one is a great card for all the car enthusiasts in your life as well.

Stampin' Up! Geared Up Garage Masculine card 2019 Annual Catalogue. Card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Melbourne Australia.

My colour combination is Night of Navy, Call Me Clover and Smoky Slate. I have also used some Champagne Foil Sheets which I have randomly stamped with some Jet Black Stazon to make it 'dirty' a bit.

Given most of the elements were in the centre of the card, I did some background random stamping on the base card.

Stampin' Up! Butterfly Wishes Distinktive Stamp Set

Hello stampers.

Today I have a birthday card for you featuring a lovely new stamp set in the 2019 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. It's called Butterfly Wishes, and is a Distinktive type stamp (exclusive to Stampin' Up!), which means you get the look of variation in depth and texture from one stamping.

It also has some solid butterfly images in the stamp set, two of which coordinate with the Stampin' Up! Butterfly Duet punch.

The butterflies at the top and bottom left on the image shown above, are the ones that coordinate with the butterfly punch.  I have used the middle butterfly on the left on today's card, which I fussy cut. I have still shown the Butterfly Duet punch in the item links in case you want to have a closer look.

Here's my colour combination for today's card. I love using the berry colours with Crumb Cake. One great thing about the Distinktive stamps, is that you get lovely variation of tone within the one stamped colour.

I have also used the new Stitched Nested Labels Dies on today's card. I really like layering the smaller label at the ends to give some extra colour.
