Sponged embossing card making technique on a 2021 Mothers day card.

Hello friends. Today I have a 2021 Mothers day card for you. A little early maybe, but I wanted to play with the Meadow Moments embossing folders and use the sponged embossing papercraft and card making technique. The soft colours I wanted to use were perfect for a Mothers Day card. 

Here's how my card turned out.

Meadow Moments sponged embossing folder 2021 Mothers Day Card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

I started with embossing a piece of Basic White cardstock with one one of the two embossing folders in the Meadow Moments embossing folder pack. Using sponge daubers, I lightly sponged the raised bits. I used the dauber and Blushing Bride ink pad for the flowers, Mint Macaron for the butterflies and Soft Sea Foam for the stems and leaves. I also lightly sponged the white areas in between with Soft Sea Foam.

Next steps were to add a thin strip of Mint Macaron cardstock to the left side of this strip, and to adhere it to a Blushing Bride card base which had been embossed with the subtles 3D embossing folder. To finish my card off I embossed the Happy Mothers Day sentiment from the Strong Women stamp set in white embossing powder onto Mint Macaron cardstock. I cut the butterfly embellishment using the Butterfly Duo Punch, and a piece of Blushing Bride cardstock which I had also embossed with the Subtle 3D folder.

Sneak Peek of NEW 2021 Art Gallery stamp set and Heal Your Heart 2021 Saleabration stamp set: Stampin' Up! Sympathy Card Idea

Hello friends. Today I am sharing another sneak peek from Art Gallery stamp set (in the Fine Art Floral Suite) from the 2021 Stampin' Up! January to June Mini Catalogue. The card also uses a sentiment from a really beautiful set perfect for sympathy / hope / thinking of you cards. It's called Heal Your Heart and it's one of the stamp sets you can earn for free in Saleabration during January and February 2021. It's such a tasteful and beautiful set.

For my colours today, I have taken inspiration from the Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper which is also part of this suite. I like how the layering of the Poppy Parade and Flirty Flamingo look on the two step flower.

Stampin' Up! Masculine Sympathy Card Idea and a great Stampin' Up! Colour Combination for Men.

Hello friends. Today I am sharing a masculine sympathy card idea using Stampin' Up! products from the 2020-2021 Stampin' Up! catalogue. Sympathy cards are difficult to make at the best of times, but coming up with ideas for sympathy cards for men can be even more challenging.

Masculine sympathy card using Stampin Up 2020 Annual Catalogue cardmaking supplies including Well Said stamp set, Well Written Dies, Subtle embossing folder and a masculine colour combination. Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

I chose to keep my card simple and classic, use colours that felt masculine to me, and feature the sentiment in a small cluster of die cuts. The sentiments are from the Well Said stamp set, and the stems are from the coordinating Well Written Dies. The heart is from the Detailed Hearts Die.

I really love how the colour combination turned out for this card. Misty Moonlight and Cinnamon Cider are my two favourites of the 2020-22 InColours, and they look great together for masculine cards.

I have used the Subtle Embossing Folder again. I seem to use it in on so many cards these days. It's really classic.

Stampin' Up! Under My Umbrella stamp set coloured with Stampin' Blends. Video Tutorial.

Hello stamping friends. 

Today I have a card idea for friends. My stamp set is Under My Umbrella from the 2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue, and it has a coordinating punch. I have coloured the images with Stampin' Blends and have used a little sponging too. It's going to rain a bit this week in Melbourne (I actually love listening to the rain though, and it's great for the garden too) so this is an appropriate stamp set for sure.

I've put together a video for you showing the techniques I used to colour and blend with Stampin' Blends, and how to make the easy cloud background.

My colour palette was nice an bright and featured two of the Stampin' Up! 2020-22 InColours.

The cloud effect is super easy to make, and you don't need anything special. I show you how in the video.
