Stampin' Up! Painted Posies Embossing Folder with Masked Artistically Inked Stamp Set

Hello friends.

Today I wanted to show you a beautiful new embossing folder from the 2022 Annual Catalogue. It's called Painted Posies and it's a 3D 6x6" folder. I have used it on this card.

The pattern is so pretty and gives a crisp imprint on the Melon Mambo cardstock. I love how the embossing foliage and flowers climb up the card. Embossing is a great way to add a wow to a card without a lot of expense.

The stamped panel on this one is from Artistically Inked. The flower is stamped in Polished Pink and the leaves and sentiment in Old Olive. The die cut shape is from Stylish Shapes dies which are new this year. I used the masking technique, shown in the video below, to stamp the leaves behind the flower.

Here's a masking video I made recently, which shows 6 different masking techniques, and 5 cards, including this one.

Stampin' Up! Sympathy Card with the new Fern 3D Embossing Folder & Sun Prints DSP

Hello friends, lets dive right in and have a look at some of the embossing folders in the new 2022-23 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. I love how embossing folders create a real WOW on your papercraft projects, for a really reasonable cost. There are some really beautiful new embossing folders in the new catalogue. Check them out here in my online store.

The first embossing folder one that jumped into my cart, was the Fern 3D embossing folder. I just saw so much potential with it. I'm a big lover  of plants and gardens too, so this probably didn't come as a surprise to anyone that knows me well. I made this sympathy card for one of my lovely customers who sadly lost her partner.

The new Sun Prints DSP is a perfect accompaniment to this card (the colours are Starry Sky, Night of Navy and White in this piece. The paper pack has Sahara Sand  I love how well the colours blend with the Sahara Sand base and embossed layer, plus the subtle fern print is a great tie-in to my card.

The Sun Prints suite comes with it's own bundle which is gorgeous (see below), but for this card I used my carryover Forever Flourishing dies, which are also a great match. My sentiment is from the carryover Inspired Thoughts stamp set, and the sentiment label is from the new stand alone die set Stylish Shapes. You will be seeing a LOT of this new die set! A Linen Thread bow completes the card.

Colour Creations Week 41 Sahara Sand with Stampin Up Cactus Cuties Bundle

Colour Creations 2021 to 2022 logo

Hey friends, welcome to another week of Colour Creations blog hop by the Art with Heart Team. This week we are playing with Sahara Sand.

Sahara Sand

My card is a super quick and easy one this week, as I was running a bit late to get it created and up on my blog. I had the colour scheme and products in my head though, so it was pretty quick to get it done. I have used the cactus Cuties punch bundle from the 2022 Stampin' Up! January to June Mini Catalogue.

Stampin Up Cactus Cuties Hello Card, by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

I have used Shimmery White for my background and have embossed the front layer with the Painted Texture embossing folder (I used my blending brushes to add dome Sahara Sand ink in the centre before I embossed). The pot is stamped in Sahara Sand, the cactus in Mint Macaron and the flowers in Polished Pink.

Here's a closer look at my colour combination. Stampin Up Sahara Sand, Mint Macaron, Polished Pink Colour Combination / Color Combo

Stampin' Up! Grassy Grove Bundle Thinking of You Card

Hello friends. Today I wanted to show and give you step by step instructions for a handmade thinking of you card that I made with the Grassy Grove bundle from the 2022 Stampin' Up! January to June Mini Catalogue. I have also used the Saleabration Special Moments sentiment set. You can get this awesome set FREE with a $180 order until March 16th. I'll give you more details about Saleabration later in the post.

Here's today's card. I really love how it turned out. I have only used the Grove dies part of the bundle here, but I know I will use both parts of the bundle, so I wanted to save the 10% on both (yes demonstrators get these discounts too, as well as an extra 20-25% off at least!).

How beautiful is that paper behind the die cut? That's the amazing New Horizons 6x6" paper pack (find it HERE in the online store). There are 12 gorgeous watercolour like landscape scenes. It's soooooooo beautiful!

Step by Step Instructions for Grassy Grove Card (all products used are linked at the end of the post)

  1. Start with a side folding standard size Crumb Cake card base (for Australia that's 1/2 an A4 sheet cut vertically and folded / burnished with bone folder in the middle.
  2. Cut a piece of Evening Evergreen cardstock 1/4 cm smaller on all sides than the base card (for Australia the measurement for the Evergreen Cardstock would be 10cm x 14.3cm).
  3. Centre the large grove die onto the Evergreen layer and die-cut. 
  4. Insert the die cut piece into the Bark embossing folder and run through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss machine again. Make sure you do the embossing last, otherwise the die-cutting will flatten the embossing.
  5. Cut a piece of the New Horizons DSP 1/4 cm smaller on all sides than the Evening Evergreen piece (for Australia that would be 9.5cm x 15.8 cm). Attach this to the base card with Multipurpose Glue or Stampin' Seal.
  6. Attach the die-cut and embossed Evergreen Elegance card over the top of the New Horizons DSP using Multipurpose Glue or Stampin' Seal.
  7. Cut the two deer from a scrap of Crumb Cake cardstock and use a sponge dauber to apply some Crumb Cake ink to the very edges of each deer.
  8. Attach the deer to the left of the grove opening as shown (I used Dimensionals to attach)
  9. Stamp the Thinking of You sentiment from the Special Moments stamp set (pictured and linked below), in Evening Evergreen onto a Shimmery White cardstock strip 1.8cm (just under 3/4" wide). Using this width allows you to punch the ends using the amazing Lovely Labels Pick a Punch (pictured and linked below).
  10. Attach the sentiment to the card with Dimensionals and then attach a double bow of linen thread.
