Hello stampers. First up ....

Shutterstock_1438501391

I'm excited to be back 'in the office' and ready to spread the joy and benefits of living a creative life.

We are only days away from the start of Stampin' Up!'s biggest promotion of the year, Saleabration. There are SO MANY freebies to earn during Saleabration:

  • Free gifts when you spend $90 or $180 in a single transaction;
  • Free gifts when you buy the starter kit to enjoy a 20% discount on your Stampin' Up! purchases;
  • Free gift when you host a $500 group order or party, or submit a $500 free order yourself.

Stay tuned for more information about Saleabration in the next couple of days.

Today I wanted to show you one of the Saleabration sets you can earn with a $90 spend (before postage) in one transaction. It's called Happy Birthday to You and is a great set for colouring,

It's such a beautiful set. I have coloured this one with Stampin' Blends (Crumb Cake, Petal Pink, Old Olive and Lovely Lipstick). The great news is that there will also be dies available for purchase for this set in February. The ribbon is the Rococo Rose and Gold Ribbon from the 2019 Annual Catalogue (still current until May 31st).

The background embossing folder I have used is the Parisien Flourish 3D Embossing folder in the new Stampin' Up! 2020 January to June Mini Catalogue (previously called Occasions Catalogue).

Stampin' Up! Beautiful Friendship Single Layer Card

Hello stamping friends.

Today I have a really simple card for you, using the Beautiful Friendship stamp set from the 2019/2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. I grabbed this stamp set when I needed to make a couple of quick birthday cards recently. 

Stampin Up Beautiful Friendship 2019 card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

It's basically a one layer card, except for a small greeting (I used a greeting from Butterfly Wishes stamp set as it was a better size for my card; I do love the greetings which come with the Beautiful Friendship set though). I stamped directly onto Shimmery White cardstock, and cut a 2cm strip from the bottom of the front of the card, and added a strip of Soft Sea Foam patterned DSP (from the subtles 6x6 pack) to the base of the card.

Here's the colour combination I used with the stamping:

The greeting is stamped in Basic Gray, and cut out from one of the dies in the Detailed Bands die set (link at end of post), and I have added some 2019-2021 In Color Faceted Dots for embellishing.

Here's a closer look at the Beautiful Friendship  stamp set (also linked at the end of the post). It really is super easy to use, You just keep on adding layers of flowers and leaves and you are done. The stamp set is Photopolymer so it's super easy to line up as well.

The great news is that this stamp set is just $38 (link at the end of the post), so a great one to add to your collection and a stamp set I think you will reach for again and again.

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.

Ink

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.

Video on blog. Stampin' Up! Good Morning Magnolia stamp set watercoloured and highlighted with Delicata metallic ink. Card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

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.

Video on blog. Stampin Up Very Versailles (2019 Annual) and Beauty and Joy (2019 Holiday) with Delicata mettalic ink used two wats.

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.

Thanks for checking in today,

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.
