Stampin' Up! Prized Peony coloured with Stampin' Blends.

Hello stampers. Today I have a Prized Peony coloured with Stampin' Blends for you. I am loving colouring the images in this beautiful stamp set from the 2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue.

Stampin Up Prized Peony stamp set coloured with Stampin' Blends. Dainty Diamonds and Subtle 3D embossing folder. 2020 card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

I wanted to keep my background quite neutral, so I have just used Crumb Cake cardstock. To create a bit more interest, I have used two different embossing folders. I have used the Subtle 3D folder on the first layer, and on the layer I have cut using the Stitched So Sweetly dies, I have used the Dainty Diamonds 3D folder. You can view or purchase these products in my online Stampin' Up! store in Australia, using the links at the end of this post.

I have coloured the image with Stampin' Blends. I recently did a video showing how to colour the smaller Prized Peony, and used the same colouring technique here. Here's a look at that video in case it's helpful. The colours I have used are Purple Posy Stampin' Blends combo, Highland Heather Stampin' Blends combo and Old Olive Stampin' Blends combo.

To finish my card off, I have used a greeting from Well Written stamp set, which is stamped in Crumb Cake and cut out using the Stitched Nested Labels dies. I tied some linen thread around the flower stem, and placed some Elegant Faceted Gems around the flower. It's so hard to see in this picture, but I also used some Wink of Stella to add to the lowlights (dark shaded areas) on the flower. I love how that turned out.

Here's a closer look at this lovely Prized Peony stamp set, and the two embossing folders I have used.

This is the Dainty Diamonds 3D embossing folder (even though it looks 6x6", this one is actually card front size).

This one is the Suble 3D folder which gives a fabulous textured effect. This is a 6x6" folder.

Stampin' Up! Beautiful Moments & Ornate Garden Split Panel Card

Hello friends,

Back today with a simple watercolour card for you. This is one I did for a subscriber step by step PDF tutorial a while back, but I also like to blog these so I can add them to my Pinterest boards (by subscribing, you get the step by step instructions, supplies and pictures emailed out free of charge though).

Split panel cards are easy but really effective.

I love this Ornate Layers frame, as it's the perfect size to add in a watercoloured image. This image is from the Beautiful Moments stamp set and I have watercoloured using waterpainters and the ink in the ink pad lids. I've used Rococo Rose, Crumb Cake, Highland Heather and Mint Macaron (to pick up the green in the Ornate Garden DSP.

Please note: In the images above, I have used the Subtles embossing folder. As this is currently unavailable to order, this step wont be used in the class (although you could substitute a folder of your choice).

The projects are based on the 'A Good Man' cling stamp set (which is valued at $42 and included in the class supplies) on page 147 of the Annual Catalogue. I LOVE this stamp set. The hand-drawn images are so gorgeous and there are lots of sentiments in a great font for make cards.

Art With Heart Team Colour Creations Blog Hop: Pretty Peacock

Colour Creations 300

Jumping into the Colour Creations blog hop this week as we are into week 3 of the 2019 InColours. This week is Pretty Peacock, a beautiful teal blue that I am already totally in love with, as it is so versatile. Today I have teamed it with another new 2019 Incolour, Rococo Rose. I love the fresh vintage look of these colours together. 

Free as a Bird and Pretty Peacock card from 2019 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue by Claire Daly Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

We have lots of beautiful new InColour products besides just the ink and cardstock in the 2019 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue (see all the Pretty Peacock ones in the link below). For this card I have used some of the 6x6 InColour paper stack. There are 40 sheets in the pack in total, with 4 sheets of 2 different double sided designs in each of the 5 new InColours. I particularly love the script pattern. I have also used our new Very Vanilla scalloped lace and some of the Rococo Rose scalloped linen ribbon (which I have cut into strips), and one of the Bird Ballad trinkets in the top left corner.

Free as a Bird and Pretty Peacock card from 2019 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue by Claire Daly Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

For the watercolouring of the Free as A Bird image, I have used Gray Granite and Rococo Rose for the birds, Old Olive and Rococo Rose for the leaves and flowers, and Gray Granite and Early Espresso for the branch. I have used a very light watercolour wash of Seaside Spray around the image for the sky.

Stampin Up colour combination including 2019 InColours Pretty Peacock, Rococo Rose, Gray Granite and Seaside Spray

Now it's time to jump over to Catherine Proctors blog, and see what the other Art With Heart team girls have done with Pretty Peacock this week.

Thanks for stopping by my blog tonight. I will be back in a day or two with some more inspiration for you.

Until then, have a happy and creative week.

Stampin Up Making Christmas Bright 2018 Christmas / Holiday Catalogue. Card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

I have used the Making Christmas Bright stamp set and my awesome Stamparatus stamp positioning took which allowed me to get the placement perfectly aligned (those removable plates are a game changer). Here's my colour combination:

The Making Spirits Bright stamp set is such a fun one for Christmas. My son really loves his Christmas lights and puts them up every year so it's very appropriate in our house. I cn see it will be a great set to use for some journaling cards for my December Daily album this year too.
