Stampin' Up! Double Gatefold Best Dressed Fun Fold Card with Free Tutorial

Hello crafty people.

If you are are looking for some fun girly paper, you can't go past the Best Dressed Designer Series paper. I have used it on this double gate fold card which I made for my nieces 18th birthday.

The paper has floral images on one side, and perfume and makeup images on the other side. Coordinating colours are Basic Gray, Blackberry Bliss, Daffodil Delight, Lovely Lipstick, Mint Macaron, Old Olive, Petal Pink, Pretty Peacock, Purple Posy and Whisper White. There are also coordinating coloured tassles available as embellishments. I love the look the tassles add to the card.

This card opens out to show off more of the patterns on the DSP, and also has room to add your greeting. I have just cut a couple of perfume bottles from the paper to embellish this part.

Stampin' Up! Saleabration second release sneak peek: Flowering Foils

Hello stampers, happy March.

Saleabration has just one month left to run, but it's about to get a whole lot more exciting with the release of 5 brand new Saleabration choices. Today I can give you a sneak peek of one of the choices, which is the Flowering Foils Designer Paper. This paper is printed with Rose Gold and Silver floral designs on a white background. The cool thing is you can alter the colour of the white background with spongeing or brayering, so it lends itself to some fabulous inky creations.

Here's a couple of cards I have made with this paper. For this first card, I have brayered ink in an ombre pattern with Seaside Spray ink. I have then used the Poppy Moments Bundle to complete my card.

On this second card, I have gone for a more dramatic look and brayered with Blackberry Bliss ink. There are so many possibilities with this paper.

Introducing Your Creative Connection - a new global Stampin' Up! papercraft showcase.

Blog

I’m excited to announce the launch of Your Creative Connection today; a bi-monthly creative showcase which will come to you on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month.

Your Creative Connection came together from a group of eight global friends wanting to give you a worldwide connection to creativity. We hope to inspire you to connect with us as we share papercraft ideas using Stampin’ Up! products. Each showcase will have a theme, and we will ‘travel’ around the world to connect with our creative friends. You will be amazed at the creativity of my amazing global friends. These ladies are all really special and are people I feel a real warm connection to, as well as admiration for the way they run their Stampin' Up! business.

Today's theme is Pleased as Punch. This was a tricky one for me, because I don't often have punches as the focal point of my cards (they tend to be more in the layers and for greetings). As you get to know me over the coming months (or if you already follow me on Instagram), you will know that flowers and plants make me happy. So the Vase Builder Punch was calling me. You will find the Vase Builder punch in the Stampin' Up! 2019 Annual Catalogue.

The vases were punched from one of the Daffodil Delight patterned sheets in the Best Dressed Designer Series paper from the Stampin' Up! 2020 January to June mini catalogue. I then went with the colours in another of my favourite sheets from that pack: Lovely Lipstick, Daffodil Delight and Old Olive. This is a nice bright and happy colour palette for a birthday card. I've used my most used punch, the Banner Triple Punch, for the banner ends in my paper strips (you NEED this punch). The flowers are coloured with blends, and the greeting is from Label Me Bold stamp set. You can view  or purchase any of the products I have used today using the links at the end of my post.

Seatbelts on! I'm excited to now send you on your way around the world (or continue the journey from the lovely Michelle Last in the UK). It's time to head right up to Minnesota in the USA to visit my lovely friend Dawn Olfeschke

Next

If you get lost along the way, here's your complete itinerary for today's round the world trip.  Enjoy getting to know everyone and if you feel inspired by their projects, don't forget to bookmark or follow their blog or social media so you can visit from time to time. It makes me very happy to share with global demonstrators and I hope it makes you happy too.

Product List


New Stampin' Up! dies released for some of your favourite Saleabration and 2020 January Mini stamp sets

Hello friends,

Today I wanted to tell you about a new product release which has gone live in my online store today. It's called the Coordination Product Release and it includes 5 new die sets which coordinate with selected Stampin' Up! Saleabration and 2020 January to June Mini Catalogue stamp sets, as well as a DSP which coordinates with 4 of our punches.

Find the Coordination Products HERE in my Online Stampin' Up! Store

You can also watch the video showing these products in action, and I have some more detailed pictures of which die set goes with which stamp set below.

 

The Birthday Dies (available to purchase HERE), coordinate with the Happy Birthday to You stamp set (which is a level 1 Saleabration choice so can be chosen free with a $90+ order in one transaction).

Stampin Up dies that coordinate with Happy Birthday to You Saleabration 2020 stamp set.

 

The Ladybug Dies (available to purchase HERE) coordinate with the Little Ladybug Saleabration host bonus set (bonus FREE set with a $500+ single or combined friends / party order during Saleabration.

There is also a new Designer Series Paper called Pleased as Punch which has images which coordinate with four of our punches. You can purchase  the Pleased as Punch DSP here in my online store.

The four punches it coordinates with are:

Stampin Up DSP paper that coordinates with Tulip Builder Punch, Umbrella Builder Punch, Heart Punch Pack (all in 2020 January to June mini catalogue) and Small Blooms Punch (2020 Saleabration)

 

I hope these pictures help you understand the Coordination product release a little better. If you have any questions, you can contact me by phone, text or email and I'd be happy to help.

Remember this is a limited time release, and products are only available while stocks last. If there is something you definitely want, I'd get in sooner rather than later as the popular sets sold out quite quickly last year (although we have been assured of more supply this year).

Stampin' Up! Heart of Christmas Week 10: Spreading the joy of creativity for a handmade Christmas.

Heart of christmas 2019 full size

 

Hey friends. It's tome for some more Christmas inspiration. Today I am playing with the new Stampin' Up! product suite called 'Christmastime is Here'. This has been available to demonstrators as a special preorder in October and is available to purchase by customers on November 1st. 

This suite contains Designer Series Paper with gold foiling (3 double sided designs x 4 pages each at 12x12" size), a stamp set and coordinating dies, gold glitter embellishments and a gold ribbon. 

Stampin Up Christmastime is Here cards by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

The dies actually cut out one of the images in the Christmastime is Here Designer Series Paper, so both of these cards use that image. There is also a lined image you can colour with blends and some bits and pieces to fill in the image. Here's a look at the stamp set.

Here's a look at the whole product suite. Each of the individual items can be purchased separately, so you can just get the bits and pieces you like. Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter (click the button in the right hand column) to hear all about this new release on November 1st.

Stampin Up Christmastime is Here suite. Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

I was drawn to this suite for many reasons. I love roses, I love the traditional colours for Christmas, and I'm a sucker for gold foiling in my DSP.  I also really love the warmth in the sentiment I have used on these cards.

The die cuts are really interesting as well, and add visual interest to your cards. I love these ones that I have used around the sentiment label.

Stampin Up Christmastime is Here cards by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

Overall, the Christmastime is Here suite is a lovely group of coordinating products, in traditional colours for Christmas and beyond.
