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.

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.

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.

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

Heart of Christmas Week 7 - Spreading the joy of being creative for a handmade Christmas.

Hello there. I'm back from a little study break to bring you Heart of Christmas from the Art with Heart team. We are now up to week 7 - wow! Lets spread some more Christmas creating fairy dust, shall we?

Heart of christmas 2019 full size

 

Today's cards from me (yes there are two!) are all about Pretty Peacock and Copper Foil.

First up we have this cute church snowglobe card using the Still Scenes bundle from the 2019 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue. I am SO in love with this bundle and the WOW snowglobe cards you can create with it. There are so many different configurations you can use to make cards (keep your eye out for two more Snowglobe cards I will be posting on my blog this week). 

Stampin Up 2019 Still Scenes snowglobe Christmas card using Brightly Gleaming DSP. Card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

I have used the Brightly Gleaming DSP as the backing paper, and stamped in Pretty Peacock ink onto Pretty Peacock cardstock for the piece behind the globe. The cards are super easy to put together. I will show you step by step in another blog post later in the week. The greeting for this one is from The Greatest Part of Christmas host set (check it out at the end of the post). Did you know you could choose this set for FREE using Stampin' Rewards from a $250+ order? Fot the sequins in this one, I used some old metallic sequins I had. There are great snowflake sequins in the Holiday Catalogue which I have used in the other cards later in the week.

Welcome to the very last week of the Colour Creations blog hop. We are so grateful to our Art With Heart Team Member Catherine Proctor for coordinating this blog hop for us each week. What an amazing job she has done over the last 58 weeks. Thank you Catherine.

The team will be back in August with Christmas creations though. Why not take up the Extra Extra Special Join Up Offer (you can join just for yourself or to earn some part time $) and you can play along with us in August too. Any of the girls participating tonight would love to have you join their team.

Our last colour is Purple Posy, a lovely soft lilac colour.

For my card, I have used the Detailed Bands dies again (this time the larger of the decorative filligree liks pieces, and one of the label stamps). You need this gorgeous die set in your creative stash.

I have combined the Purple Posy with some of the Purple Posy linen ribbon, Night of Navy cardstock, and two lots of Designer Series Paper. The Purple Post script paper is from the 2019-20 InColour 6x6" paper stack.  The gorgeous Monet inspired floral paper, is called Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper.

Stampin' Up! To a Wild Rose Stamp Set 3 ways

Hello crafty friends.

I'm super excited that the new 2019 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue goes live at 8am AEST (Melbourne time) tomorrow! 

One of the new stamp sets that took my fancy, was the To a Wild Rose stamp set. This is a super versatile stamp set, and I even used the greeting on a scrapbook page. It's a 2 or 3 step stamp, and here I have used all three layers: an outline layer in Early Espresso, the base flower in Rococo Rose (stamped off once), and the final highlights layer in Rococo Rose.  I have used Mossy Meadow for the leaves. The base card here is one of the Magnolia Lane Large Memories and More cards which come in a set of 20 with matching envelopes.

I have used the Birch background stamp on one of the new Nested Label Dies (this is a great new shape to add interest to cards). I love that we have some brass embellishments back (top left corner) - these are the Bird Ballad embellishments and there are a few different designs in the pack. I have also used some of the beautiful scalloped linen ribbon which comes in all the five new in colours.

This next card is much simpler, as I have used just 2 layers for the stamp (and also the centre part of the flower). The base flower is Rococo Rose stamped off once, and the highlight layer is Melon Mambo. I used Early Espresso for the flower centre, and Old Olive for the leaves on this one. I stamped my greeting in Early Espresso and have just added 3 metallic pearls to finish this one off.

Finally I have a scrapbook page for you where I have used the To a Wild Rose stamp set for the title.

I have also used some of the bits and pieces from the beautiful Hugs from Shelli Paper Pumpkin kit (now sold out), and some new Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper.

Art With Heart Team May Blog Hop: New Catalogue Preview

Welcome to the May blog hop for the lovely Art With Heart team girls. Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative products using supplies from the upcoming 2019 - 2020 Stampin' Up!

My projects feature a beautiful new Designer Paper called Mosaic Mood. This paper pack didn't immediately jump out at me in the catalogue, but then we received a pack as an all attendee give away on the last day of Onstage. Once opening the pack, the beautiful colours jumped right out at me, as did the clear embossed parts which add beautiful texture and interest. It's a really pretty 12 x 12 paper pack.

I have used the paper to make two cards for some friends that needed a virtual hug recently. There are lots of beautiful floral mosaic images to cut from the paper, and I used those as the feature of my cards.

Stampin Up 2019 Annual Catalogue Mosaic Mood DSP and Flourishing Phrases. Sympathy card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

For some added interest on this first card, I embossed one of the layers with the Subtle embossing folder, which gives a beautiful textured but subtle effect. I also did some very light stamping on the base card (the leaf image is from Healing Hugs stamp set). My greeting on this card is from a set carrying over into the new 2019 Annual Catalogue, called Flourishing Phrases. The inside sentiment says 'with warmth and caring from me'. The greeting on the front of the card fit's nicely in one of the stitched circles from the Stitched Shapes die set. This is one of my most used die sets because it has ovals, squares and circles in the one pack.

As you can see, there's a range of beautiful colours in this paper. The catalogue tells me that the coordinating colours are: Blushing Bride. Crushed Curry, Garden Green, Mint Macaron, Soft Suede, Terracotta Tile, Very Vanilla and Whisper White. I adapted that a little and used the following colours to give my cards a soft pastel look:

Claire's Stampin' Up! Colour Combination: Blushing Bride, Mint Macaron, Soft Sea Foam, So SaffronI haven't used So Saffron in what feels like forever, but I think it works really well with this new Mosaic Mood Designer Series Paper. The greeting I have used on this card is from Healing Hugs, another set carrying over to the 2019 Annual Catalogue. 

Stampin Up 2019 Annual Catalogue Mosaic Mood DSP and Healing Hugs. Get well card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

I've used the Stitched Rectangle Dies, and the Stitched Labels dies for the layers of my greeting. I do like my stitched dies, and any interesting shapes I can use for stamping greetings or layering. This large stitched label is one of my favourite dies.
