Stampin' Up! Cottage Rose birthday card with ink blending.

Hello friends. Happy Monday! 

Today I wanted to share with you a birthday card I made using the Abigail Rose suite in the 2022 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. It's such a pretty suite! 

Stampin Up Cottage Rose / Abigail Rose 2022 Birthday Card

The suite comprises of the Cottage Rose Bundle, the Abigail Rose Designer Series Paper and the Natural Finish Ribbon. You can either buy the items together in a suite, or individually. Browse the suite and it's components HERE in my online store.

Suite

I really love the DSP designs in this suite. The ledger design is a a great neutral, and it was easy to add some additional colour to the rose patterned design by using my blending brushes and some Blushing Bride ink. I have used Crumb Cake as the base card, and Blushing Bride under the sentiment layer.

The ribbon in this suite is GORGEOUS. It's a really soft neutral that coordinates perfectly with our linen thread and many of our neutral cardstocks. I have used the Elegant Faceted Gems to add some additional embellishment.

Flower Tulips Vellum Thank You Card

Hello friends. Today is all about flowers, and tulips at that! I am using the Stampin' Up! Flowering Tulips bundle from the 2022 January to June Mini Catalogue. In Australia we are now into Autumn and I will soon be planting my tulips and other bulbs for my Spring and Winter flowers. 

The Flowering Tulips bundle includes a stamp set and a set of dies which cuts out images, but also includes some dies to make 3D tulips, including layering petals for three different tulips, the flower stem and leaves. 

Stampin Up Flowering Tulips card by Claire daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

On this card I have also used the Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper. When a paper is quite bold as this one is, I often use vellum to soften some of the paper. That provides me with a focal point for the flower. To adhere the vellum, I used a cotton bud to smear a really thin layer of Multipurpose Glue on the paper until it was just tacky, and then placed the vellum on top. It adheres without the glue being visible through the vellum.

My flower is cut with Petal Pink cardstock and the petals sponged with Poppy Parade, to coordinate with the colours in the paper. My base card is Pool Party. To embellish my card I have used Linen Thread and Artistry Blooms Adhesive Backed Sequins.

If you like this card, you can still get my Flowering Tulips class as a PDF purchase anywhere worldwide on my Stamp at Home Classes page. It contains step by step instructions and measurements for this card and 5 other Flowering Tulips cards.

The Flowering Tulips stamp set has some great greetings, including the circle greeting I have used.

Stampin' Up! New Horizon DSP & Grove Dies

Hello friends. Today I have a 'hello' card for you. I find these very handy to have on hand to send with catalogues to new customers or just to say hello to team members, friends and family. Today I have used the New Horizons DSP as the star of my card, with some elements from the Grove Dies. Both of these products are new in the 2022 January to June Mini Catalogue.

Stampin' Up! handmade Hello card using New Horizons Designer Series Paper, Grove Dies, and Pebble Enamel Embellishments. Card by Claire Daly, Melbourne, Australia.

My base card is Evening Evergreen, and I have just added a layer of the gorgeous New Horizons Designer Series Paper (see below), followed by a couple of die-cut deer from the Grove Dies (see below). I have added a 'Tammy Style Bow' as made famous by the amazing Tammy Wilson of Stamps, Paper, Scissors. I love the added texture this gives the card. My bow contains Evening Evergreen open weave ribbon (cut in half horizontally), the gold metallic twine from the Simply Elegant Trim pack, and Linen Thread. You can find all of these using the links at the end of the post.

I think one of my favourite parts of this card, is the self adhesive pebbles. These Pebble Enamel Embellishments (see below) are fabulous for creating scenes and added texture on your cards.

Stampin' Up! Daffodil Daydream Mothers Day Cards + how to put the Daffodil Dies Together

Hi friends. Today I am back with 2 more Daffodil cards, both Mothers Day cards using the gorgeous Daffodil Daydream bundle again. I also have some pictures which show you how to put the Daffodil Dies together.

Here's my first card.

It's very simple because the die-cut daffodil does all the work. There are 3 different daffodils that can be made up with the Daffodil Dies. Here are the diagrams showing how you make up each one. You can vary up the colours to whites and pinks too.

For the rest of the card, I have used the Saleabration Daffodil Afternoon DSP (only available as a FREE pick with a $90 order up until March 16th, so don't miss out!) and the gorgeous soft white frayed ribbon. My greeting is from Celebrating You stamp set, and I have punched the ends of the label using the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch.

For my second card, I have used a piece of the paper as the focus to my card.  This card was so simple but I love how it turned out.

My base card is Petal Pink and I have a popped a very thin mat of Flirty Flamingo cardstock around the black patterned layer. to add a pop of colour. The greeting is from the Daffodil Daydream stamp set, and this time I have used the Double Oval punch. I've also popped some of our gorgeous Brass Butterflies on this card as an embellishment.
