Stampin' Up! Eden's Garden Christmas Card

Hello friends! 

I was a bit late to get my link in for the team blog Christmas blog hop tonight, but thought I would post a card anyway. You can find the link to the team blog hop at the end of my post.

Tonight I am featuring a Christmas card using both the Eden Garden suite, and the Merriest Moments bundle.

Stampin Up Eden's Garden & Merriest Moments 2021 Christmas Card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

I love the Ever Eden Designer Series Paper for Christmas. It combines the rich deep Evening Evergreen with the lighter Soft Succulent, and includes gold foil highlights for a festive touch. I have added some die cuts from the Eden dies, and my sentiment and label are from the merriest Moments bundle. I think the highlight of my card is the flower from the Merriest Moments bundle adorned with the beautiful Garden Jewels, and a Brushed Metallic Adhesive backed Dot in the centre.

Stampin' Up! Eden's Garden Christmas Card for Heart of Christmas Week 17

Heart of Christmas Header 2021

Hello stampers. Today I have a new Christmas card for you, as part of my Stampin' Up! Australia Art with Heart Team's weekly Heart of Christmas blog hop. Can you believe we are up to week 17 already? Today I am using some new products which will be released for customers on November 3rd.  These are the Eden Dies (which coordinate with the Eden's Garden stamp set, although I haven't used that today), Ever Eden Specialty Designer Series Paper and Garden Gems. I'll have more about these products and the Eden's Garden promotion later in the week.

I love the beautiful soft pattern in this paper, and the gold foiling is perfect to add a bit of festive wow. Soft Succulent is fast becoming one of my favourite greens, My base card is Evening Evergreen, another new favourite from the 2021-2023 InColors. The little gold bits peeking out from under the labels, are the ends of a die cut in the Eden Dies. I really like how they work here. The cork and Shimmery White labels are from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and are a perfect fit for my sentiment from Merriest Moments stamp set. To embellish my card, I have used some gold metallic trim from the Simply Elegant Trim pack (you get silver and gold in one pack). You can view and purchase any of the supplies used in today's card, using the links at the end of the post.

Stampin Up Australia Heart of Christmas 2021 Week 7: Sparkly Christmas Cards

Heart of Christmas Header 2021

Hi friends. I'm back with some more Christmas creations for you today, for week 7 of Heart of Christmas. I hope we are inspiring you with ideas for your 2021 Christmas cards. Today I am featuring one of our Saleabration items which you can earn for FREE with a $90 order up until September 30th. It's called Be Dazzling Specialty Paper, and we all need a bit of dazzle in our lives right now don't we?

You get eight 6x6" sheets in the pack and it can be die cut, punched and coloured as well.

Stamin Up Be Dazzling DSP which you can earn for free with a qualifying order up to 30th September 2021.

Here is my first card this week, a sparkly Christmas tree.

Stampin Up 2021 Christmas card using Be Dazzling Specialty Paper, Christmas Tree Dies and Sparkle of the Season stamp set. Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

For my first card I have used the Christmas Tree Dies (in the Whimsy and Wonder Suite, page 25 of the Stampin Up Australia July to December Mini Catalogue) to cut a base tree in Evening Evergreen and then the garland from the Be Dazzling Specialty Paper. This paper cuts fine in the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine, but I recommend a firm sandwich and a couple of runs through the machine. The little star was cut from a retired punch in my stash. I have used Holiday Rhinestone Jewels to decorate the garland, and my DSP is Tidings of Christmas from the Annual Catalogue. The scalloped piece is cut from the Scalloped Contours Dies (in the Annual catalogue). My sentiment is from the Sparkle of the Season stamp set in the July to December Mini Catalogue.

For my second card, I used the Sparkle of the Season bundle.

My base card is Soft Succulent and I have used the Tidings of Christmas DSP for my two DSP layers. I cut the wreath from the Seasonal Swirls Dies and then coloured it with my light Soft Succulent Stampin' Blends to tone it in with the DSP. I have added some Holiday Rhinestones to the wreath, and my sentiment is from the Sparkle of the Season stamp set.

Stampin Up Australia: Cinnamon Cider Thinking of You Card using Quiet Meadow Bundle

Colour Creations 2021 to 2022 logo

Hello friends. Today I am participating in my Art with Heart Team Colour Creations Blog Hop. I'm so luck to have a team full of amazing creative people who love to create and share with each other, and who jump in and run activities like this for our team. It's so fun! 

This week's colour is Cinnamon Cider, one of the 2020 InColors. I really love this gorgeous mid brown colour. It really does remind me of a comforting warm drink.

Here is a Thinking of You card I came up with for today's challenge. It was made much easier by using one of the Gingerbread and Peppermint Memories and More Cards in the new Stampin' Up! Australia July to December Mini Catalogue. The rest of my card uses the Quiet Meadow Bundle from the 2020 Annual Catalogue.

Stampin Up Quiet Meadow Thinking of You Card. 2021 card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

I used Early Espresso ink to stamp one of the stamps from the Quiet Meadow stamp set onto the left of the label shape on the pre-printed base card. This stamp set coordinates well with the distressed vintage look of the base card I think.

I die cut some of the stems from the Meadow Dies, in Crumb Cake and Night of Navy and arranged these a little to the right of the stamping. I adhered them in a couple of places with glue dots.

To finish off my card, I stamped the sentiment in Early Espresso and die cut it with the label shape in the Meadow Dies. Before I adhered it with Dimensionals, I coiled a little Natural Linen Thread underneath (I adhered this with some tape).

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.
