Heart of Christmas Week 22: Stampin' Up! One Sheet Wonder

Heart of Christmas Header 2021

It's our last week of Heart of Christmas for the Art with Heart Team in 2022, so I wanted to make sure I joined in. I have used a One Sheet Wonder template that our wonderful Demonstrator Development Managers shared with us when they held a Craftalongathon for Australian and New Zealand Demonstrators. There are lots of different one sheet wonder cutting templates floating around and they make it quick and easy to make a bunch of cards.

All of the DSP I have used in these four cards came from one 6x6" piece of  Painted Season Designer Series Paper.

For two of the cards I have just embossed with the Tasteful Textures embossing folder straight onto the front layer of the Pool Party card, for the other two I cut an additional layer and embossed it with the Merry Merlot embossing folder.

For the cluster of embellishments on each card, I have sponged one of the Wonderful Snowflake embellishments (part of the Whimsy and Wonder Suite in the 2021 July to December Mini) with Pool Party ink (using a sponge dauber). I also included a piece of looped silver metallic trim (from the Simply Elegant Trim combo in the Annual Catalogue) and a little die cut tree from the Christmas Tree Dies (also part of the Whimsy and Wonder Suite in the 2021 July to December Mini). I finished off with a sentiment from Peaceful Deer stamp set, which I stamped in Evening Evergreen ink.

Two Stampin' Up! Gray Granite Christmas Cards for Colour Creations.

Colour Creations 2021 to 2022 logo

Hello stampers! I'm playing along with my team Colour Creations blog hop today. We are using one of my very favourite neutral colours, Gray Granite. This is a beautiful 'griege' shade - a little bit grey, a little bit beige.

Since I'm right in the swing of Christmas cards right now, I have two Gray Granite Christmas cards to share with you today. The first one uses Merriest Moments bundle from the Stampin' Up! Australia July to December Mini Catalogue.

I have used the Merriest Moments embossing folder on the Gray Granite cardstock layer, and then used my sponge dauber to sponge on a little more Gray Granite ink to the embossed bit to highlight it some more. I've stamped the Poinsettia's in Blackberry Bliss, and added some gold embellishments. Both of these colours work great with Gray Granite.

The next card is a case of one of the free tutorials I sent my subscribers a few weeks ago. I love how the design of that one turned out, that I recreated it in Gray Granite too.

For this one I have used some of the new Ever Eden DSP, coming to customers along with coordinating embellishments and an early release bundle from the January to June mini catalogue. I have used the Evening Evergreen jewels from the 2021-22 InColor Jewels pack, some gold twine from the Simply Elegant Trim Combo and the sentiment, deer and coordinating punch are from the Peaceful Deer Bundle. That's the Timeworn Type embossing folder on the background Gray Granite piece. Such a GORGEOUS folder!

Before we move onto the next card, here's a fun blooper for you. Our lovely Simba likes to get in on the photo love sometimes when I am trying to take photos of my cards. He even looks like he is posing in this one.

Stampin Up Blackberry Beauty 'Here for You' handmade vintage card

Hello crafters. I'm back with some crafty inspiration for your weekend with a card featuring the gorgeous Blackberry Beauty suite from the Stampin' Up! July to December mini catalogue. I love the lush opulent look of this suite, especially the beautiful foiled Blackberry Beauty DSP.

Stampin Up Blackberry Beauty 'Here for You' handmade vintage card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

In addition to the earthy Early Espresso and Cinnamon Cider, the paper has Blackberry Bliss, Rich Razzleberry and Polished Pink. Then there is beautiful gold foiling. It also has a coordinating Ephemera pack.

Stampin Up Blackberry Beauty Ephemera Pack, available in Australia from Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

My base card is Early Espresso, and I have added a Crumb Cake panel which I have embossed with the AMAZING Timeworn Type 3D embossing folder. If you love vintage you need this embossing folder. Before I embossed, I stamped one of the birds from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set, in Rich Razzleberry. I did another one on a scrap of Crumb Cake and fussy cut it then adhered over the top with Dimensionals.

I stamped the 'Here for You' sentiment onto one of the labels from the ephemera kit, and popped that up on Dimensionals over some coiled linen thread. The Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots really coordinate well with this suite, and were a great embellishment for this card.

Stampin Up Australia Heart of Christmas 2021 Week 4: Painted Christmas

Heart of Christmas Header 2021

Hello friends. Today I have three Christmas cards made with a 6x6" piece of patterned paper and a super easy cutting template. I have used a new Christmas product Suite called Painted Christmas which will be available to purchase from August 3rd.

Stampin Up Painted Season suite 2021 Christmas cards by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

To make these cards, I started with three Evening Evergreen C6 card bases (piece of A4 cardstock cut in half vertically and folded). 

Next step is to cut three pieces of Painted Christmas patterned paper (start with a 6x6" piece), using this cutting template.

I adhered the two left hand size pieces of paper to the bottom of 2 portrait orientation cards, and the right hand side piece to the bottom of one landscape orientation card. The size allows for a small mat around the bottom and sides.

Once the paper was adhered, I ran the whole card fronts through the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder. I love the effect this gives.

The next step is to add a t5hin strip of the gorgeous Dazzling specialty paper across the join. This paper is one of the free items you can earn with a $90 order in Saleabration which is on August 3rd to September 30th. It is so gorgeous! You get 8 6x6" sheets in a pack.

For the sentiment, I have used Christmas to Remember stamp set and the Seasonal Labels Dies. The sentiment is stamped in Evening Evergreen. To finish the card off I have stamped a couple of the holly leaves from Christmas Season stamp set in Garden Green (on a couple of the cards I stamped off once before stamping the holly leaves and I think I like that better) and the berries in real red.

Stampin Up In Symmetry with Bumblebee

Colour Creations 2021 to 2022 logoHello friends. The Stampin Up Art with Heart Team ladies are back with another week of the Colour Creations blog hop. This week we are playing with Bumblebee, which I think is my FAVE yellow in our range.

Bumblebee

I have a card using the In Symmetry stamp set and Sweet Symmetry Designer Series Paper (on sale this month for 15% off). This paper is gorgeous, and has Bumblebee, Calypso Coral, Flirty Flamingo, Just Jade and Night of Navy as the coordinating colours. I really like how these colours work together.

Stampin Up In Symmetry stamp set with Sweet Symmetry DSP. Card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

While the stamping is quite simple on this card, there are LOTS of layers underneath. I have used three different pieces of that lovely DSP, including a circle to add in some variety with the shapes. I have also used a piece of Bumblebee cardstock embossed with the Dots embossing foler (one of the two mini folders in the Checks & Dots embossing folder pack).
