New 2021 Forever and Always Bundle Valentines or Anniversary Card

Lots of shiny, foil goodness in today's card share. I am using the gorgeous foiled papers and Forever and Always bundle from the Love You Always product suite in the Stampin' Up! 2021 January to June Mini Catalogue.

Stampin Up Forever and Always Bundle 2021 Card by Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

I LOVE (excuse the pun) how this card turned out. There's actually three amazing papers in the Love You Always Product Suite (view the whole suite HERE).

Love You Always

The Love You Always Specialty Paper is the foiled patterned one I have used for the second layer which has four sheets each in Sahara Sand, Petal Pink and Rococo Rose. I have used the Rococo Rose with a Rococo Rose card base. The Love You Always Foil Sheets are the solid foil colours to coordinate with the patterned foil (which I have used for the die cut word), and the black and white True Love Designer Series Paper. is a standard DSP which is also great for colouring with Stampin' Blends and spongeing or brayering. I added a punched vellum heart underneath the start of my sentiment.

The Forever and Always bundle is a really great bundle for wedding, valentines and anniversary cards. I can also see it will be useful for scrapbooking, especially the great die-cut words.

I am particularly keen on the die cut words in this bundle. They have the great outline die as well, and several great words and phrases that coordinate with the big words. There are also little labels to cut these words out.

For the inside of the card I have just used a piece of Whisper White cardstock and a thin strip of DSP.

The bundle features the Forever and Always stamp set, and the Always dies which contains two large die-cut words (Love and Always), some labels to cut out other words in the stamp set, and some dies which cut out the flowers and leaves in the set. There are also dies to cut out outlines for both of the large words and I have used one of these in today's project.

Stampin Up Forever and Always bundle and True Love Designer Series Paper. 2021 card idea by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

The True Love Designer Series paper is a 12x12" 12 double sided paper pack entirely in black and white. It has floral images on one side, and patterns on the other. You can alter the paper by colouring it however you like: sponge brayering, using blending brushes or colouring with Stampin' Blends as I have have done with the flowers in this card. I have used a combination of Flirty Flamingo, Calypso Coral and Old Olive Stampin' Blends. They blend nicely on this paper, just make sure you have something underneath the paper when colouring to protect your work surface.

How to Make Folded Christmas Tree Cards - Free Tutorial

Hey friends. Today I have a free tutorial on how to make handmade folded paper Christmas tree cards. Isn't it the cutest little tree ? It's easy to make and requires very little supplies. I have used the Stampin' Up! Stitched Shapes dies and Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper from the 2020 July to December mini catalogue for mine, but you could cut a circle shape another way and use any paper you had available.

Handmade folded Christmas Tree Cards. Free Tutorial. Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

I made two different versions, one basic one, and another more 'stepped up'. The sentiment is from one of my all time favourite Christmas sentiment sets, Itty Bitty Christmas (linked at end of post). I stamped the sentiment three times without reinking, on the bottom right of each envelope as well. Love how that turned out.

Here's a closer look at the more basic of the two cards.

Here's the stepped up version where I added Champagne Rhinestones, added some coiled gold cord and folded the edge of the patterned paper.

I think the stitched edge of the tree really adds to the effect.

Stampin' Up! Quite Curvy Bundle with Ornate Floral Embossing Folder and the Inked Embossing Folder Technique

Hello lovely stamping friends. I hope this finds you well. Today I have for you a card I have made using the newly released Stampin' Up! Quite Curvy bundle with the Ornate Floral Embossing Folder. I have used the inked embossing folder technique with the embossing folder.

Stampin' Up! Quite Curvy Bundle with Ornate Floral Embossing Folder and the Inked Embossing Folder Technique. 2020 Card by Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

Find the Quite Curvy Bundle HERE in my Online Stampin Up Store in Australia.

Fund the Ornate Floral Embossing Folder HERE in my Online Stampin Up Store in Australia.

My base card and the colour of the ink I used on the embossing folder is Soft Sea Foam. For the inked embossing I used white card, and inked the debossed side of the folder with the Soft Sea Foam ink (I have a video HERE showing this technique) . I love how this looks with this Ornate Floral Embossing folder.

The sentiment is from the Quite Curvy stamp set in this bundle, and is stamped in Gray Granite ink onto Whisper White. I cut the label piece out from Sweet Sentiments dies in the Stampin Up 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue.
