Stampin' Up! Quiet Meadow Thinking of You Card

Hello crafty friends.

Today I have another card using the Quiet Meadow bundle from the Stampin' Up! Australia 2021 Annual Catalogue. I love this bundle, probably one of my favourites in the Annual Catalogue.

Stampin Up Quiet Meadows Thinking of You Card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

I started with a base of Soft Succulent cardstock and embossed it with the Pretty Flower embossing folder. The various wildflowers were die cut from Fluid 100 watercolour paper and then I used my Aquapainters to colour them. I used Soft Succulent ink on the stems and leaves, and Polished Pink for the flowers. I tied them together with some white bakers twine and then adhere to the card in a couple of places with glue dots. Finally I stamped my sentiment from Quiet Meadows stamp set in Soft Succulent onto Basic White cardstock and cut it out using one of the dies from the Ornate Labels Dies.

Stampin Up 2021 Christmas Cards: Poinsettia Petals for Heart of Christmas Week 1

Heart of Christmas Header 2021I'm excited that our Art with Heart Team Christmas themed blog hop is back for another year. From today right through until mid December, we will be providing Christmas card inspiration for you every Monday night. This year it will also be a true blog hop format, so much easier to navigate and see all the wonderful inspiration.

I'm using one of my favourite stamp sets that carried over to the Stampin Up Australia 2021 Annual Catalogue: Poinsettia Petals, along with the coordinating Poinsettia Dies. I used these two products so much last year and I absolutely love them. I have given them a new life for a 2021 Christmas card, by combining it with some brand new products.

2021 Stampin Up Christmas Card using Poinsettia Petals. Card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.
The new products I have used are (links at end of post to take you to these products in the online store): 

  • Soft Succulent cardstock (one of the new 2021-23 Stampin' Up' InColors) as the base.
  • The gorgeous new Tidings of Christmas DSP from the Annual Catalogue. This paper is 15% off right now in our DSP sale.
  • Gold & Rose Gold Metallic Specialty Paper (I have used the gold on this project) cut with the Encircled in Beauty Dies for the piece underneath the Poinsettia
  • Evening Evergreen Ink to stamp the greeting onto the Soft Succulent cardstock.

The poinsettia layers are embossed in gold onto Shimmery White cardstock and layered together, and over the gold decorative circle, with Dimensionals.  I have added in some foliage cut with the Poinsettia Dies from Soft Succulant cardstock. To finish my card off I added in some Champagne Rhinestones which were the perfect colour for my project.

Here's a reminder of how gorgeous the Poinsettia Petals stamp set and Poinsettia Dies are.

Stampin Up Thinking of You Card: Quiet Meadow Bundle & Collage Stamping Technique

Hello friends. Today I have a 'thinking of you' card using the new Quiet Meadow bundle in the Stampin Up Australia 2021 Annual Catalogue. We will also be using a stamping technique called collage stamping.

Stampin Up Quiet Meadow used with Collage Stamping Technique. 2021 card by Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia
"Collage" was originally a French word, derived from the word coller, meaning "to paste." The stamping interpretation of that is to combine a variety of themed stampings, balanced in both colour and composition. That's easy to do when you have multiple coordinating stamps in a set, like we do with the Stampin' Up! sets.

Quiet Meadow Stampin Up 2021 Bundle. Available from my online store.

Here's a look at the complete card. The light has caught the Rose Gold Metallic Specialty Paper so it looks like two different colours, but it isn't. This paper is really pretty.

Meadows metallic paper 1

I started with a base of Crumb Cake cardstock. I have stamped one layer of the collage stamping in Crumb Cake ink. This is just basically layering the stamps to give the coverage and composition you want. I also used  Early Espresso to add another layer on the collage, and carried that colour through to the stamping on the sentiment.

Stampin' Up! Bloom Where You are Planted Suite and Plentiful Plants Bundle

Hello stamping friends. 

Today I have a card that is perfect for the plant lovers (and that's me too!). This thank you card, features a brand new suite in the 2021 - 2022 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue, called Bloom Where You are Planted. The centre piece in this bundle is the Plentiful Plants Bundle of stamp set and coordinating dies. There is also a delightful plant themed Bloom Where You are Planted Designer Series Paper and some paper lattice pieces.

Stampin Up Plentiful Plants Bundle and Bloom Where You are Planted Suite. 2021 card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

I have used Soft Succulent (a new 2021 InColor) as the base card, and the brick paper is from the Bloom Where You are Planted DSP.

Stampin Up Plentiful Plants Bundle and Bloom Where You are Planted Suite. 2021 card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

For this card, the posts and plants were actually cut from the DSP using the dies which coordinate with the images in a couple of the sheets of the paper. I also fussy cut a couple of others using paper snips. The macrame hanger and the pot stand were cut from Crumb Cake Cardstock using the dies. The lattice was sponged with Early Espresso ink (it comes as Kraft thick paper) so there was more definition between the bricks and the lattice. I tied a double layer of linen thread around the top of the card.

Here's a look at the bundle so you can see the leaves and pot dies included (that also coordinate with the paper - VERY cool).

The sentiment is the only thing stamped on this stamp set! I have used Early Espresso ink to stamp the greeting on Crumb Cake cardstock, and used the Everyday Label Punch to cut this out (I then trimmed some excess from the top and bottom of the label using my trimmer).

The good news is, you can buy all of these scrumptious products in one suite, all together. It's called the Bloom Where You are Planted Suite and you can find it HERE in my Online Stampin' Up! Store.

I'm looking forward to playing lots more with this beautiful bundle, and stamping some of the images too. Here are some projects from the Stampin' Up! designers using this suite.
