My sentiment is from Peaceful Deer, as I wanted a smaller sentiment, and I just love this one. It is stamped in Crumb Cake onto Shimmery White cardstock and cut out with the Double Oval Punch.

Stampin' Up! Deer Builder Punch for Heart of Christmas Week 5

Heart of Christmas Header 2021

Hello stamping friends. It's time for some more Christmas creations. This week I am playing with the Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper and the Deer Builder Punch. These were quick and easy to make, so I made 3. My card uses products that will be available tomorrow with the launch of the Stampin' Up! Australia 2021 July to December Mini Catalogue and the beginning of Saleabration (where you can earn free products with each $90 you spend before postage). 

Stampin Up Painted Christmas, Christmas to Remember and Deer Buider Punch. 2021 Christmas card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

I started with a base Evening Evergreen card, and added a layer of Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper. Next I cut a strip of coordinating Painted Christmas DSP 12.5cm x 3.7cm, and cut a banner end. This was adhered to the base layer of DSP using Stampin' Seal.

Next I cut a scalloped circle of Evening Evergreen cardstock, using the Layering Circles Dies. This was adhered (with Dimensionals) over the banner piece (the top of the scalloped circle is about 1.5cm from the top of the banner piece in my sample). I then cut the cute Reindeer out of the GORGEOUS Be Dazzling Specialty Paper. You can earn this paper (8 sheet pack) for FREE with a $90 order during Saleabration. It's so pretty. It looks like thousands of mini sequins. I have attached it to the scalloped circle using Stampin' Seal, but you could also use Dimensionals. My greeting is from the new Christmas to Remember stamp set.

Stampin Up Australia Heart of Christmas 2021 Week 4: Painted Christmas

Heart of Christmas Header 2021

Hello friends. Today I have three Christmas cards made with a 6x6" piece of patterned paper and a super easy cutting template. I have used a new Christmas product Suite called Painted Christmas which will be available to purchase from August 3rd.

Stampin Up Painted Season suite 2021 Christmas cards by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

To make these cards, I started with three Evening Evergreen C6 card bases (piece of A4 cardstock cut in half vertically and folded). 

Next step is to cut three pieces of Painted Christmas patterned paper (start with a 6x6" piece), using this cutting template.

I adhered the two left hand size pieces of paper to the bottom of 2 portrait orientation cards, and the right hand side piece to the bottom of one landscape orientation card. The size allows for a small mat around the bottom and sides.

Once the paper was adhered, I ran the whole card fronts through the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder. I love the effect this gives.

The next step is to add a t5hin strip of the gorgeous Dazzling specialty paper across the join. This paper is one of the free items you can earn with a $90 order in Saleabration which is on August 3rd to September 30th. It is so gorgeous! You get 8 6x6" sheets in a pack.

For the sentiment, I have used Christmas to Remember stamp set and the Seasonal Labels Dies. The sentiment is stamped in Evening Evergreen. To finish the card off I have stamped a couple of the holly leaves from Christmas Season stamp set in Garden Green (on a couple of the cards I stamped off once before stamping the holly leaves and I think I like that better) and the berries in real red.

Three Cards in One with Stampin Up Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper

Hello crafty friends. Today I want to show you how you can make 3 quick and easy Stampin Up cards in one! I have used the Stampin' Up! Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper from the 2021 Stampin Up Australia Annual Catalogue, along with the super versatile Biggest Wish stamp set from the same catalogue.

Stampin Up 3 quick and easy cards in one using Pansy Petals DSP. 2021 Card by Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

Here's the three cards I made.

Stampin Up 3 quick and easy cards in one using Pansy Petals DSP. 2021 Card by Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

Card Instructions

  1. Start with 3 x C6 standard card bases in Soft Succulent (that's an A4 sheet cut in half vertically and folded in half).
  2. Cut three pieces of coordinating DSP pieces each 10cmx 14.3cm.
  3. Stack them together in your trimmer and make 2 angled cuts (it doesn't really matter where you make them, but aim for 3 pieces around the same size).
  4. Select one piece from each pattern and adhere to the card leaving a teeny gap in between each piece.

The final step is to adhere a sentiment label over the join of the three pieces. I used a circle with my greeting from Biggest Wish stamped in colours to coordinate with the DSP. If you don't have the Biggest Wish Stamp Set, I strongly suggest you take a look using the links at the end of the post. It's so versatile.

I have also used a piece of Soft Succulent Open Weave Ribbon (you need about 22cm for each card), and one of the Soft Succulent 2021-2023 In Color Jewels.

This is such a quick and easy design, I will definitely be making more quick and easy cards using this layout.

Stampin Up You're a Peach Easy Patterned Paper Strip Card with Measurements

Hello friends! With just over nine days left of the Stampin Up Australia Designer Series Paper sale (it ends on August 2nd), I wanted to show you an easy card layout to use up strips of Designer Series Paper. I am using You're a Peach Designer Series Paper Pack, which is one of the gorgeous paper packs on special at 15% off until August 2nd. I have included the measurements so you can easily make cards like this at home.

Quick and Easy card design using strips of patterned paper (You're a Peach Designer Series Paper from Stampin Up). 2021 card by Claire Daly Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

Measurements

  • My base card is a standard C6 size Balmy Blue card (half an A4 sheet cut vertically and folded in half).
  • My second Balmy Blue layer is 9.9cm x 14.2 cm.
  • Each of the five coordinating paper strips are 9.5cm long and 2.6cm wide, which allows for a 2mm border all round when they are adhered to the second layer.
  • The circle is the largest die (the plain one, not the scalloped one) in the layering circles dies.

The other main element on my card is one of the Tailor Made Tags die cuts. It's really easy to miss these dies in the catalogue as they are a stand alone die set, but they are gorgeous as they have 4 stitched tags in 2 different designs (so 8 tags all up), with two different reinforcements = 10 really versatile dies for $38.00. I have included a picture of the dies below.

My sentiment is from Inspired Thoughts stamp set, one of my favourite sentiment sets from the 2021 Annual Annual Catalogue. I love the font in this set.
