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.

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).

New Stampin' Up! 2020 In Colours: Introducing Just Jade

Hello crafty people. It's time to introduce our 3rd new colour of the 2020-22 Stampin' Up! In Colours. Today we are looking at what I think is my early favourite, Just Jade!

This is a beautiful bright and happy mid-strength green with a blue undertone. It tones beautifully with Mint Macaron and Coastal Cabana, and also with the darker colour of Shaded Spruce.

Stampin' Up! Just Jade 2020 In Colour

For today's Just Jade card, I have used two of the Just Jade designs in the 2020-22 In Colour 6x6" paperstack. There are four different patterns. I showed one yesterday, and today's card shows two more of the designs.

I have used one of the new Tasteful Labels dies on this card, which has the word 'Happy' from Well Said stamp set, stamped in Night of Navy. I have also used one of the cardstock word stickers from the Flowers For Every Season Memories and More Card Pack. The floral cardstock sticker if from there too. I have also added some of the Misty Moonlight silver twine from the Flowers for Every Season ribbon combo pack underneath the label.

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.

New Stampin' Up! 2020 In Colours: Introducing Bumblebee

Hello papercrafters. 

This week we are going to start looking at the 2020-22 New Incolours. I'm going to introduce them in alphabetical order, starting today with Bumblebee. 

Bumblebee is a warm toned yellow, slightly brighter and a little less intense in colour than Crushed Curry. It has an ornage undertone when compared to Daffodil Delight, and is similarly toned to So Saffron.

Here's a look at Bumblebee on a card. This is one of the Flowers For Every Season Memories and More cards, which come in a moxed pack of the 5 new In Colours. I have also used a card and greeting from the Flowers for Every Season Memories and More Card Pack.

There are lots of colours which will combine well with Bumblebee. This floral card used all of the other 2020 new In Colours, and also Poppy Parade. I personally particularly like it with Just Jade and Misty Moonlight.

More Stampin' Up! NEW Release Ornate Garden Suite cards / Tips for getting a great diecut with the Ornate Layers Dies

Hello lovelies. I hope you are all safe and well and managing OK in social isolation. Today I have some more Ornate Garden suite cards to share with you. This brand new suite of products was only released to customers on 1st April and is an early release of products from the 2020/21 Annua Catalogue which commences on June 3rd.

First up are my customer thankyou cards for this month. I loved making these sweet cards to express my gratitude to customers who support my business. Some months things get crazy, but one of the silver linings for home isolation for me has been time to create in bulk and also more importantly, time to handwrite in cards, and post them. That's where the magic happens, right?

Ornate Garden 2020 bulk thankyou cards by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

I used the note cards and envelopes for these cards because they are a great size and a really affordable way to make a bulk lot of cards. I used the Ornate Layers Dies  for the Blushing Bride and Mint  Macaron piece (there are so many other colours that coordinate - see below), There are some tips to getting a great effect when using these dies which I have outlined in my tips. To finish my cards I have used the greeting (stamped in Early Espresso) from Ornate Thanks stamp set (just LOVE all those little script text lines you can add before and after the words), some scalloped lace trim and an adhesive pearl.

Ornate Garden 2020 bulk thankyou cards by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrators Melbourne Australia

TIP: As I was making the cards in bulk, I wanted to maximise the use of the gorgeous Ornate Garden DSP. I made the DSP piece 4 inches x 3 inches so I could get 12 from one sheet of DSP. To get an even border of notecard around the edge, I cut 1cm (approx 3/8 inch) from one side of the note card. This was quick and easy to do.

TIP: When using the Ornate Layers Dies with my BigShot, I found I got the best result using the Base Platform (which is slightly raised in the centre), the Thin Die Adapter plate and then the die and cardstock between the two acrylic plates. I place the die in the centre of the platform and put it through vertically (so the thinnest end of the rectangle goes through first). Then I just run it through a couple of times and use my Take Your Pick die brush and mat (brush on the reverse side of the die cut) which gets out mot of the 'bits'. The remaining bits are easily poked out with your paper piecer.

Colours which Coordinate with the Ornate Garden DSP: The colours listed by Stampin' Up! as coordinating are: Early Espresso, gold, Mint Macaron, Old Olive, Teracotta Tile. Whisper White and a brand new InColour called Bumblebee. I also found So Saffron, Crumb Cake and Blushing Bride to coordinate well. I  evenused Shimmery White for my greeting labels too, which is a little off-white, and that worked. It's a really versatile DSP.

My other Ornate Garden suite card used one of the decorative die cuts from the Ornate Layers Dies (in Blushing Bride) along with a piece of the DSP lined in Early Espresso. The greeting label is from one of my most used die sets for greeting labels, Stitched Labels from the 2019 Annual Catalogue. My greeting (stamped in Early Espresso) is from the So Sentimental stamp set in the 2020 January to June Mini Catalogue. As you can see the Ornate Garden DSP works great with Crumb Cake cardstock. The little flowers on the greeting label are die cut from the Ornate Layers Dies. I have layered 2 scrunched up flowers with a Dimensional foam dot between them, and an adhesive pearl on top. Finally I added a few more pearls below the greeting and in the flower centres on the decorative die cuts. Even though I have the gold Gilded Gems which were a part of this suite, I think adhesive pearls work really well too as the paper has a a bit of a vintage feel to me.
