Stampin' Up! Basket of Blooms stamp set & Small Bloom punch

Hey there.

Today I have a bright and happy card for you, using the Basket of Blooms stamp set from the 2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue.

Basket of Blooms stamp set by Stampin' Up!. 2020 card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

I was immediately drawn to this stand alone stamp set for several reasons:

  1. The great variety of outline images, including flowers, foliage, vase, basket and flower pot, which make it great for colouring.
  2. It coordinates with the Small Bloom punch, which was one of the free choices during Saleabration 2020, and can also be purchased still.
  3. It's a GREAT price - 14 stamps for $30.

Purchase in my online store in Australia.It's so easy to create beautiful floral arrangements with this set, whether they be simple or more detailed. By being able to punch out some of the flowers, it's easy to add dimension to your project too. Here's the Small Bloom Punch it coordinates with (shop link at the end of the post).

For my card, I used Stampin' Blends to colour the vase (light and dark Seaside Spray and light Misty Moonlight). I stamped the foliage in Granny Apple Green, and the flower in Magenta Madness. My base card is Bumble Bee, and I have used Magenta Madness for the sentiment piece (the sentiment is from the Dressed to Impress stamp set) and for the mat on the stamped piece. The Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder is the perfect way to add some extra interest to the base Bumble Bee card.

I'm looking forward to having more of a play with this gorgeous stamp set. Here's some samples that the Stampin' Up! designers made with this set. Aren't they gorgeous? This set just inspires bright and happy cards and we could all do with some bright and happy right now.

New Stampin' Up! 2020 In Colours: Introducing Magenta Madness

Hello friends. Are you ready for another new 2020 Stampin' Up! In Colour? You had better put your sunnies on for this one.

Magenta Madness is a bright clear blue based pink, ready to brighten up all your papercraft projects. Side by side, I find it lighter and brighter than Melon Mambo. It's a fun colour!

New 2020 In Colout Magenta Madness Stampin UpFor my Magenta Madness card, I chose one of the Flowers for All Seasons Memories and More Cards and Envelopes card bases, and added one of the floral 3x4" cards. I love how the dotted frame on the card base is a feature already printed on the cards.

Magenta Madness. New 2020 Stampin Up Incolour. Flowers for all Seasons card by Claire Daly Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

I thought Magenta Madness looked good with Bumblebee, so I added a thin mat of Bumble Bee around the 3x4" card and also as a label beneath my greeting (this label is from the Stitched So Sweetly dies and I use these a lot!). The twine from the Flowers for All Seasons ribbon combo pack picks up the Misty Moonlight in the 3x4" card. I have also cut and layered a couple of flowers using the Small Bloom punch (a carryover from Saleabration which is in the new catalogue).

Here's some Magenta Madness colour combinations as suggested by Stampin' Up! This colour is so bright and fun.

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.

Your Creative Connection 105: A Rainbow for You

600 pixels

Hello friends. Today it's time for a virtual tour around the globs to visit the blogs of my international crafty Stampin' Up! friends for Your Creative Connection #105. Today's theme is 'A Rainbow for you' and what perfect timing. With nearly all of us in social isolation for Covid-19, I think sending rainbows is the perfect way to bring joy to other people if you are able to use the postal service in your area.

I took the theme very literally, and made up some rainbow cards using Stampin' Up! layering circles dies. 

Rainbow Card for #YCC105 bu Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

I used  Stampin' Up! note cards and envelopes as the base for my card, and then created a light pool party wash on the card front using my aquapainter and Pool Party ink refill (diluted in an ink mixing tray). My rainbow was made by cutting the 6 biggest circles from the Layering Circles dies, and using the circle 2 sizes down in the centre. This gave me 6 outline circles and I used half of these for each card, My colours from the outside are Poppy Parade, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Pacific Point, Granny Apple Green and Gorgeous Grape.

Rainbow Card for #YCC105 bu Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

For my greeting, I have used the Stampin' Up! Well Written dies to cut out the word 'happy', and the coordinating Well Said stamp set for the other words . I stamped the greeting 'Sending Healing Thoughts Your Way' and then cut it up to just use the words 'sending; and 'your way'.

I hope this rainbow has bought some happiness to you! Now it's time to visit my lovely friend Dawn Olchefske in Minneapolis in the USA.
