New Stampin' Up! 2020 In Colours: Introducing Cinnamon Cider

Hello there papercrafters. Today we are looking at the second (alphabetically) new Stampin' Up! 2020 In Colour, and it's Cinnamon Cider.

Cinnamon Cider has more of an orange undertone to our other neutral colours, and tones well with warm colours and Early Espresso.

Stampin Up Cinnamon Cider 2020 In Colour / ColorEven though the colour has cider in the name, we are entering winter here in Australia and we have had several sub zero morning temperatures here where I live. So for me,  this colour makes me think of warm cinnamon cocoa and being cosy if front of a warm fire. Both of those things make me feel happy and comforted right now, so I have a real emotional connection to this colour.

At first I struggled to create with this colour, then in the end this colour was the one I made the most cards with. I will just show you one basic card today, but I have some great samples to share in the coming weeks.

Today's card is a basic masculine birthday card featuring one of the Cinnamon Cider 6x6" paper stack designs (we have 4 new designs this year which are gorgeous to create with.

I have layered the Stitched So Sweetly dies in Early Espresso and Very Vanilla. You can also add a small mat of a contrasting colour in between (the perfect size to cut this rectangle is 6.5 x 3.5cm) which I have done with Seaside Spray. The word 'Happy' in my gretting is one of the cardstock stickers which come in the Flowers for Every Season Memories and More Card Pack. It is in Misty Moonlight (another of the new In Colours, but as you will see later in the week, this tones really well with Seaside Spray. The word birthday is from the Well Said stamp set and is stamped in Early Espresso. A couple of the gold Gilded Gem embellishments finish this card off nicely.

Your Creative Showcase #107: To Bling or not to Bling?

600 pixelsHello papercrafters from aroung the world! Today the YCC crew are bringing you projects with their own versions of bling (or maybe no bling? - we will have to wait and see!).

I would describe myself as a 'subtle blinger'. I do like a bit of bling on my cards, but it tends to be in a subtle way, as opposed to glitter and glimmer. For me I like the shiny bits to be in the form of foiled papers, foil cardstock and a few rhinestones or shiny embellishments here and there. 

Here's today's card to demonstrate my preferred 'bling level'!

Parisian Beauty and Ornate Layers 2020 Split Panel Card Stampin Up - Claire Daly, Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia. YCC#107

I have used the retiring Parisian Beauty bundle and Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper (both now only available while stocks last on until June 2nd) to make this split panel card. The paper has a subtle champagne foiled script running through it and I have carried that through by die cutting the Eiffel Tower in champagne foild cardstock as well.

Parisian Beauty and Ornate Layers 2020 Split Panel Card Stampin Up - Claire Daly, Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia. YCC#107

The frame is cut from the NEW Ornate Layers Dies, which a part of the Ornate Garden Suite and available now to purchase early from the 2020 Annual Catalogue. The flower is die cut from the Parisian Blossoms DSP and also has some of the champagne foiling on it. To complete the embellishing I added a flourish from the Parisian Dies, and three Champagne Rhinestones (yeah - these are carrying over to the new catalogue). My greeting is from Itty Bitty Greetings, a really versatile set when you just need a small greeting. You can view all the products I have used today using the links at the end of the post.

More Stampin' Up! NEW Release Ornate Garden Suite cards / Tips for getting a great diecut with the Ornate Layers Dies

Hello lovelies. I hope you are all safe and well and managing OK in social isolation. Today I have some more Ornate Garden suite cards to share with you. This brand new suite of products was only released to customers on 1st April and is an early release of products from the 2020/21 Annua Catalogue which commences on June 3rd.

First up are my customer thankyou cards for this month. I loved making these sweet cards to express my gratitude to customers who support my business. Some months things get crazy, but one of the silver linings for home isolation for me has been time to create in bulk and also more importantly, time to handwrite in cards, and post them. That's where the magic happens, right?

Ornate Garden 2020 bulk thankyou cards by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

I used the note cards and envelopes for these cards because they are a great size and a really affordable way to make a bulk lot of cards. I used the Ornate Layers Dies  for the Blushing Bride and Mint  Macaron piece (there are so many other colours that coordinate - see below), There are some tips to getting a great effect when using these dies which I have outlined in my tips. To finish my cards I have used the greeting (stamped in Early Espresso) from Ornate Thanks stamp set (just LOVE all those little script text lines you can add before and after the words), some scalloped lace trim and an adhesive pearl.

Ornate Garden 2020 bulk thankyou cards by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrators Melbourne Australia

TIP: As I was making the cards in bulk, I wanted to maximise the use of the gorgeous Ornate Garden DSP. I made the DSP piece 4 inches x 3 inches so I could get 12 from one sheet of DSP. To get an even border of notecard around the edge, I cut 1cm (approx 3/8 inch) from one side of the note card. This was quick and easy to do.

TIP: When using the Ornate Layers Dies with my BigShot, I found I got the best result using the Base Platform (which is slightly raised in the centre), the Thin Die Adapter plate and then the die and cardstock between the two acrylic plates. I place the die in the centre of the platform and put it through vertically (so the thinnest end of the rectangle goes through first). Then I just run it through a couple of times and use my Take Your Pick die brush and mat (brush on the reverse side of the die cut) which gets out mot of the 'bits'. The remaining bits are easily poked out with your paper piecer.

Colours which Coordinate with the Ornate Garden DSP: The colours listed by Stampin' Up! as coordinating are: Early Espresso, gold, Mint Macaron, Old Olive, Teracotta Tile. Whisper White and a brand new InColour called Bumblebee. I also found So Saffron, Crumb Cake and Blushing Bride to coordinate well. I  evenused Shimmery White for my greeting labels too, which is a little off-white, and that worked. It's a really versatile DSP.

My other Ornate Garden suite card used one of the decorative die cuts from the Ornate Layers Dies (in Blushing Bride) along with a piece of the DSP lined in Early Espresso. The greeting label is from one of my most used die sets for greeting labels, Stitched Labels from the 2019 Annual Catalogue. My greeting (stamped in Early Espresso) is from the So Sentimental stamp set in the 2020 January to June Mini Catalogue. As you can see the Ornate Garden DSP works great with Crumb Cake cardstock. The little flowers on the greeting label are die cut from the Ornate Layers Dies. I have layered 2 scrunched up flowers with a Dimensional foam dot between them, and an adhesive pearl on top. Finally I added a few more pearls below the greeting and in the flower centres on the decorative die cuts. Even though I have the gold Gilded Gems which were a part of this suite, I think adhesive pearls work really well too as the paper has a a bit of a vintage feel to me.

Stampin' Up! NEW Ornate Garden Suite including the gorgeous Ornate Floral Embossing Folder

Hello crafty friends. I hope you and your families are well and safe at this worrying time in the world. Today I want to show you some pretty things which I hope will make you smile. I have made three cards using the newly released Stampin' Up! Ornate Garden suite. This beautiful suite of products is a new early release from the 2020 / 2021 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue.

All three of my cards feature the absolutely beautiful Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder. I LOVE this new folder and it's delicate design. For this one my base is Mint Macaron.

In this card the die cut foliage is a left over from my third card. I used one of the frames directly onto the DSP which I like the look of. My greeting from this card is from the Woven Heirlooms stamp set (from the 2019 / 2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue).

My second card is an almost identical design, but uses Blushing Bride as the base.

The greeting from this one is the Ornate Thanks stamp set which is bundled with the Ornate Borders Dies (can also be purchased separately, but you get a 10% discount if purchased in the bundle). It is stamped in Mint Macaron. The little Blushing Bride flowers are from the Ornate Border Dies.

I just love these elegant floral borders. For the greeting in the frame I used the Peaceful Moments stamp set. Just a few adhesive pearls in the flower centres and we are done.

Before die cutting, I stamped 2 images of the cake with flowers onto Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper using Saddle Brown Stazon. I then coloured the flowers on one image with an Aquapainter and the ink from inside stamp pad lids for Blushing Bride, Rococo Rose and Rich Razzleberry. The I have used Old Olive on the leaves. On the other image I coloured the cake using Crumb Cake. Champagne foil is used for the die cut cake base, and papers from the Subtle 6x6" paper pack for the background papers. My base card is crumb cake. You can find all the details of products in the links at the end of the post.
