New Stampin' Up! 2020 In Colours: Introducing Misty Moonlight

Hello friends. Today I am introducing the last of the 5 new 2020 Stampin' Up! InColours. Each year Stampin' Up! introduces 5 colours that are around for 2 years. Today I am introducing the last (alphabetically) of the new 2020 colours, Misty Moonlight.

Misty Moonight is a mid strength blue with grey undertones. At first I thought it was a little like Dapper Denim that we had a few years ago, but side by side it is less intense and more of a grey-blue. Here is a colour comparison New 2020 In Colour Misty Moonlight Stampin' Up!

Here is how it looks next to the retired colour of Dapper Denim.

My card today is a super simple card showing Misty Moonlight with two of the other new 2020 Stampin' Up! InColours, Bumble Bee and Magenta Madness. I have used the 6x6" In Colour paper stack for the 1st DSP layer and the Magenta Madness strip.

For my greeting I die cut one of the stitched ovals from Stitched Shapes dies. As we don't have the ink pads yet, I have stamped the 'birthday' from Well Said stamp set in Night of Navy, and added a 'happy' which I diecut in Bumblebee from the Word Wishes dies. I think these three colours work well together.

New Stampin' Up! 2020 In Colours: Introducing Cinnamon Cider

Hello there papercrafters. Today we are looking at the second (alphabetically) new Stampin' Up! 2020 In Colour, and it's Cinnamon Cider.

Cinnamon Cider has more of an orange undertone to our other neutral colours, and tones well with warm colours and Early Espresso.

Stampin Up Cinnamon Cider 2020 In Colour / ColorEven though the colour has cider in the name, we are entering winter here in Australia and we have had several sub zero morning temperatures here where I live. So for me,  this colour makes me think of warm cinnamon cocoa and being cosy if front of a warm fire. Both of those things make me feel happy and comforted right now, so I have a real emotional connection to this colour.

At first I struggled to create with this colour, then in the end this colour was the one I made the most cards with. I will just show you one basic card today, but I have some great samples to share in the coming weeks.

Today's card is a basic masculine birthday card featuring one of the Cinnamon Cider 6x6" paper stack designs (we have 4 new designs this year which are gorgeous to create with.

I have layered the Stitched So Sweetly dies in Early Espresso and Very Vanilla. You can also add a small mat of a contrasting colour in between (the perfect size to cut this rectangle is 6.5 x 3.5cm) which I have done with Seaside Spray. The word 'Happy' in my gretting is one of the cardstock stickers which come in the Flowers for Every Season Memories and More Card Pack. It is in Misty Moonlight (another of the new In Colours, but as you will see later in the week, this tones really well with Seaside Spray. The word birthday is from the Well Said stamp set and is stamped in Early Espresso. A couple of the gold Gilded Gem embellishments finish this card off nicely.

Your Creative Showcase #107: To Bling or not to Bling?

600 pixelsHello papercrafters from aroung the world! Today the YCC crew are bringing you projects with their own versions of bling (or maybe no bling? - we will have to wait and see!).

I would describe myself as a 'subtle blinger'. I do like a bit of bling on my cards, but it tends to be in a subtle way, as opposed to glitter and glimmer. For me I like the shiny bits to be in the form of foiled papers, foil cardstock and a few rhinestones or shiny embellishments here and there. 

Here's today's card to demonstrate my preferred 'bling level'!

Parisian Beauty and Ornate Layers 2020 Split Panel Card Stampin Up - Claire Daly, Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia. YCC#107

I have used the retiring Parisian Beauty bundle and Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper (both now only available while stocks last on until June 2nd) to make this split panel card. The paper has a subtle champagne foiled script running through it and I have carried that through by die cutting the Eiffel Tower in champagne foild cardstock as well.

Parisian Beauty and Ornate Layers 2020 Split Panel Card Stampin Up - Claire Daly, Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia. YCC#107

The frame is cut from the NEW Ornate Layers Dies, which a part of the Ornate Garden Suite and available now to purchase early from the 2020 Annual Catalogue. The flower is die cut from the Parisian Blossoms DSP and also has some of the champagne foiling on it. To complete the embellishing I added a flourish from the Parisian Dies, and three Champagne Rhinestones (yeah - these are carrying over to the new catalogue). My greeting is from Itty Bitty Greetings, a really versatile set when you just need a small greeting. You can view all the products I have used today using the links at the end of the post.

Stampin' Up! NEW Ornate Garden Suite including the gorgeous Ornate Floral Embossing Folder

Hello crafty friends. I hope you and your families are well and safe at this worrying time in the world. Today I want to show you some pretty things which I hope will make you smile. I have made three cards using the newly released Stampin' Up! Ornate Garden suite. This beautiful suite of products is a new early release from the 2020 / 2021 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue.

All three of my cards feature the absolutely beautiful Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder. I LOVE this new folder and it's delicate design. For this one my base is Mint Macaron.

In this card the die cut foliage is a left over from my third card. I used one of the frames directly onto the DSP which I like the look of. My greeting from this card is from the Woven Heirlooms stamp set (from the 2019 / 2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue).

My second card is an almost identical design, but uses Blushing Bride as the base.

The greeting from this one is the Ornate Thanks stamp set which is bundled with the Ornate Borders Dies (can also be purchased separately, but you get a 10% discount if purchased in the bundle). It is stamped in Mint Macaron. The little Blushing Bride flowers are from the Ornate Border Dies.

My final card just used Mint Macaron and Blushing Bride cardstock.  I have used both the Ornate Frames and Ornate Border Dies, as well as the Ornate Floral Embossing Folder.

I just love these elegant floral borders. For the greeting in the frame I used the Peaceful Moments stamp set. Just a few adhesive pearls in the flower centres and we are done.

Stampin' Up! Bonanza Buddies stamp set and a Teen Birthday Card

Hello lovely stamping friends, and a very happy Easter to you all. I hope you are staying well and safe as you bunker down at home this Easter to keep others safe. Today I have a bright and happy birthday card for you, suitable for a teen, using Stampin' Up! bonanza Buddies stamp set and Bundle, from the 2020 January to June mini catalogue.

April is always a big month for us, as my husband, myself and both my son's all have birthdays within 23 days of each other. My youngest son kicked off with his 15th birthday recently, so this card was made for him.

Stampin' Up! Birthday Bonanza 2020 Teen Birthday Card

I love the bright happy colours in the Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper. As well as being great for young kids, this suite is also perfect for teens as it has a great variety of  patterns.  I love this balloon design for it's bright colours and the bit of black in there which makes the colours pop even more. This design also coordinates perfectly with the Balloon Bouquet punch. The Toucan image is actually cut from the DSP using the 2" circle punch, and then I have added a black matt using the Starburst punch which fits perfectly. The 'Happy Birthday' greeting is from the stamp set. Just love how the style of the font coordinates with the images in Stampin' Up! stamp sets.

Stampin' Up! Birthday Bonanza 2020 Teen Birthday Card

Birthday presents often include some cash for my teens, so I needed to have a money pocket in this card. Some coordinating papers and another die cut toucan and stamped image finish off my card. I really love how this one turned out.

Stampin' Up! Birthday Bonanza 2020 Teen Birthday Card

Since then both my husband and I have both had our birthday, so we have 3 birthday cakes in 10 days! My eldest son made my birthday cake and it was a delightful Orange and Poppyseed loaf with cream cheese frosting. Very grateful that both my boys enjoyed food studies in high school :) It was delicious! One more birthday in the family still to come.

I hope you are finding things to keep you busy and in some way a little bit positive at this difficult time. For me it's been fresh air in the back garden, cups of teas, connecting by phone and online with family and friends, (lots of) Netflix (enjoyed the Harlen Coben series The Stranger and Safe), pottering in the garden and in my craft room. I miss catching up with my girlfriends for a cuppa though, and feel a bit funny about the borders being closed to Western Australia where my Mum and sisters live :( Even though I have up and down days, I am praying we can get through this  love, kindness and patience and the amazing hard work being done by our frontline and essential workers.
