Stampin' Up! Decorated with Happiness 2022 Christmas Card

Hello friends,

I'm back sharing a 2022 Christmas card with you using the Decorated with Happiness bundle from the 2022 July to December Mini Catalogue. 

Stampin Up Decorated with Happiness 2022 Christmas Card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator, Melbourne Australia.

 

My card base is Blackberry Bliss, and my centre panel is Shimmery White with Soft Succulent ink blended in an ombre pattern. Before I adhered the blended cardstock to the cardfront, I:

  • Stamped some of the pine leaf pattern on the edges of the Blackberry Bliss cardstock, using Blackberry Bliss ink; and
  • Added a length of scalloped gold foil either side. I die cut this using one of the dies in the Penned Flowers Dies (part of the Hand Penned bundle).

I have cut two of the pine branches (from the Decorated with Pine Dies) in Soft Succulent and adhered them to the blended cardstock (you can either do this by using adhesive sheets, or you can also add a bit of Multipurpose Glue to a silicon sheet and use a sponge dauber to add it to the back of the die cut).

Next I die cut 2 of the baubles in three different papers - Blackberry Bliss cardstock, Very Vanilla Glimmer paper (in the Glimmer Specialty paper pack) and in Gold Foil. I used the adhesive sheets on the back when I cut these baubles. I adhered the Blackberry Bliss ones to the card first, and then filled in the extra pieces alternating between the glimmer paper and the gold foil. For the bows, I have used some Gold and Vanilla Satin-Edged Ribbon (in the July to December Mini Catalogue) which I cut in half lengthways, and some Gold Metallic Trim (from the Simply Elegant Trim Combo). I just made a bow out of both lengths together.

To finish my card, I stamped the greeting from the Decorated with Happiness Stamp Set, in Blackberry Bliss ink. My embellishments are the 2021-2023 InColor Opal Rounds.

Stampin Up Trees for Sale and Saleabration Tree Lot Dies

Hello stampers!

We are halfway through the first month of our two month Saleabration promotion and it's great to see so many of my customers and team getting free products with their orders. The Tree Lots Dies (one of the Level 2 freebies) has been a popular choice among my customers. It coordinates with the Tree Lot die stamp set, and has some really cute detail dies as well.

Stampin' Up! Happiness Abounds Watercolour Birthday Card

Hello friends.

Today I have a watercolour card for you, as it's World Watercolour Month. My birthday card uses the Happiness Abounds stamp set, which was new in the 2022 Annual Catalogue in May.

Stampin Up Happiness Abounds watercolour birthday card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

I've also used a couple of other new Annual Catalogue products: Hues of Happiness DSP, and the Fabulous Frames Dies. My flowers are embossed in white embossing powder onto Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper, and then water coloured using Water Painters and the ink inside the lid of my Polished Pink and Fresh Freesia ink pads. The leaves are water coloured the same way using Granny Apple Green ink pad.

My base card and frame are basic White cardstock, and I have stamped the sentiment from the Happiness Abounds stamp set in Black Stazon onto Basic White as well. I just chopped it in half to keep the dimensions of the card how I wanted. The embellishments I have used are the Polished Pink ones from the 2021-2023 InColor Opal Rounds from the Annual Catalogue.

Stampin' Up! have put together a great technique video showing seven different ways to add colour with watercolour. Links to the base watercolour products used in the video are shown at the bottom of the page.

Stampin' Up! Fancy Frames Dies & my 5 Favourite new Dies in the 2022 Annual Catalogue.

We have some great new stand alone die sets in the 2022 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. I have used two of them on this card, and will show a couple of others I love after the card.

These cards came together so easily with some cardstock, Texture Chic Designer Series Paper and the two dies in the Fancy Frames die set.

Stampin Up Fancy Frames birthday cards by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator, Melbourne Australia.

For this card, I have used Evening Evergreen for my frame. My base card is also Evening Evergreen and I have used Blushing Bride as a very thin mat around the layer of Texture Chic DSP. My sentiment is from the Potted Geranium stamp set and is stamped in Soft Succulent. The two die cuts I have layered for the sentiment are from Stylish Shapes, another one of my favourite die sets. I finished the card off with a couple of the 2021-2023 InColor Opal Rounds (the Soft Succulent Ones).

For my second card, I used a Blushing Bride card base, and Blushing Bride for the die cut. The sentiment is from Potted Geranium, and this label from the coordinating Geranium dies. I have embellished this card with some Soft Succulent Open Weave Ribbon, and a couple of the Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

Here's a closer look at the Texture Chic Designer Series Paper. I love the grungy vibe of this paper and there is foiling on one side too. This paper is in my Box of Pretties Share Box this month (see at end of post) with 6 other coordinating products for just $34 including postage (Australian residents only).

Now lets have a look at the die sets. Here are the two main sets I have used in these two cards:

Fancy Frames (find them here in the online store or see links at end of post)

Stampin Up Fancy Frames Dies available from Claire Daly, Australia.

Stylish Shapes Dies (find them here in the online store or see links at end of post). It's a bit hard to see in the picture below, but each of these dies has stitching on the edge.

Introducing NEW Stampin' Up! Tahitian Tide with Paradise Palms stamp set

Hello friends. It' time to dee dive into another one of the 2022 new Stampin' Up! InColors. Today we are looking at Tahitian Tide.  Just 10 days until Annual Catalogue launch day and the maunch of these fabulous new colours - woohoo!

Tahitian Tide is a bright turquoise blue. Here is how it looks with some of our other current Stampin' Up! colours. As you can see, Tahitian Tide has similar tones to Pacific Point.

Stampin Up 2022 InColor Tahitian Tide

For my card, I have used Tahitian Tide and a blending brush to create an ocean background for my beach themes card. I love this blue!

Stampin Up Tahitian Tide with Paradise Palms Stamp Set. Card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator, Melbourne, Australia.

My focal image is from Paradise Palms stamp set. This debuted in the 2022 January to June Mini Catalogue, but will also be carrying over to the new 2022 Annual Catalogue (but the bundle pricing won't be available, so if you want the bundle, grab it before the end of June so you save 10%). I originally stamped the greeting directly over the palm trees, but it got kind of lost, so I cut out a separate piece. I like the way the ripped edge exposing the white cardstock looks like the wave foam. Did you notice I have also used the 'coming soon' Stylish Shapes dies for the stitched circle?

Stampin Up Tahitian Tide with Paradise Palms Stamp Set. Card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator, Melbourne, Australia.

I have used the direct to rubber marker technique to colour the palm trees, with the trunks in Soft Suede and the branches in Garden Green. For the ground, I have used Soft Suede stamped off once. This year we also have bi-colour bakers twine in each of the InColours. I have combined the Tahitian Tide and White one, with Linen Thread for the embellishment on my card. Unfortunately one of my Champagne Rhinestones fell off before photographing, so you will just have to imagine there is another one there to the bottom right of the sentiment.

Here's a look at the colour combination for this card.
