Stampin' Up! Painted Seasons Saleabration Bundle Birthday Card

Hello stamping friends.

Today I have a lovely Calypso Coral card for you, showcasing the Painted Season Saleabration bundle (one of the level 2 choices, or earn the paper alone as a level 1 bundle).

The Painted Seasons DSP has some lovely designs (4 double sided designs, 3 sheets each). This particular design looks great with a range of colours including Grapefruit Grove, Calypso Coral, Petal Pink, Call Me Clover and Early Espresso.

The Framelits that match the Painted Seasons stamp set are also available to purchase this month only.  They are called Four Seasons Framelits and are available in the the Saleabration Coordination section of my online store. The framelits make it super easy to cut out the flowers and leaves for layering. I have also used the new Story Label punch from the Saleabration Coordination range for my greeting. The embossing was done using the beautiful Lace Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Isn't it pretty?

I have decided to showcase the beautiful Country Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, which is one of the new level 1 Saleabration items added on February 15th. My card layout is quite simple, as I wanted the focus to be on the embossing folder.

Stampin Up Country Floral Embossing Folder, Story Book Punch and  Strong and Beautiful Stamp Set. Card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Melbourne Australia.

I embossed a piece of thick Whisper White cardstock which I had spritzed first as this gives a deeper impression). Once dry, I sponged on ink with a sponge dauber in a circular motion. I used Blushing Bride ink for the flowers and Pear Pizazz for foliage. I like the subtle and imperfect effect this technique gives. I also like that you get a variation in colour within the sponging, as this really shows the different dimensions in the folder.

I trimmer the embossed piece down to 9cm x 13cm and then attached it to a very thin mat of Pear Pizazz (I allow 3mm extra for this, so my Pear Pizazz piece was 9.3cm x 13.3 cm). I then mounted this piece onto a standard C6 sized Blushing Bride card.

For my greeting, I have used a new punch which is available to purchase in my online store from tomorrow. It's called the Story Label Punch. It fit's so many of our sentiment sets and I really like the interesting shape which lends itself to lots of layering opportunities. To make the mat for the punched shape, I cut two extra shapes in Blushing Bride and cut one of these in half vertically and one horizontally. I then attached each half onto the back (the side without the stamping) slightly overlapping the white punched shape. When you have attached all 4 pieces, all edges have a nice border.

To finish my card, I attached a piece of metallic ribbon, which is actually Petal Pink, but works fine. I attached the stamped and edged shape over the top of this with Dimensionals. This card will now be going off to my Mum for her birthday next month.

I've also completed a second version of this card. This time I have embossed a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock and have used crumb cake ink to sponge over the embossing with a Stampin' Sponge.

I hve used Fresh Fig and Soft Suede as my other colours. For the greeting, I did some layering with the Story Label Punch to show another way to use it. I have layered a 1.5" punched circl in Fresh Fig behind the Story Label punched piece, and then a strip of wood grain paper and a greeting. The greetng and the speckled stamping on the Very Vanilla cardstock were both from Beauty Abounds stamp set. I must use those bronze Leaves Trinkets (from Annual Catalogue) more often as I love them.

Do you spy a new punch? The piece in the Lemon Lime Twist gingham paper, was punched out using a new punch which is called Story Label Punch. This is coming on March 1st, as part of a limited release of new products in March only. It's a great versatile punch. In fact I have used quite a few punches in this card as I find them just so quick and eay to create with. I have used the Leaf Punch, the Twig Punch, the Story Label Punch and the Triple Banner punch which I use to cut banner ends all the time (again, quick and easy is my friend).

Week 25 AWH Colour Creations Blog Hop - Lemon Lime Twist

Colour Creations 300

Hello there, welcome to another week of Colour Creations, This week we are playing with one of my favourite colours, Lemon Lime Twist. While I have lots of ideas for using this colour, I have decided this week to post the last of my Christmas card creations. Lemon Lime Twist is such a bright happy colour. It is a perfect accompaniment to the Making Spirits Bright stamp set.

Stampin Up Making Spirits Bright, 2018, Christmas, Holiday Catalogue, Card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

I have used Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight and Melon Mambo Stampin' Blends to colour the Baubles. I also used the Daffodil Delight one to highlight the frame. I must confess I didn't intend to deboss the Oh My Stars embossing folder. It was supposed to be embossed but I liked my mistake better. That happens sometimes doesn't it?

Stampin Up Making Spirits Bright, 2018, Christmas, Holiday Catalogue, Card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

I was happy how quickly this card came together and I have just the friend to give it to; one who brings brightness and sunshine into my life.

Now it's time to pop over to Catherine Proctor's blog, to see what the other Art With Heart team ladies have been creating with Lemon Lime Twist this week. Enjoy!

See you back here again tomorrow with our last week of Heart of Christmas for 2018.
