Stampin' Up! My Meadow and stamping scenes.

Stamping scenes has been a bit of a trend in Stampin' Up! catalogues of late. I thought I would have a try at this technique of sorts, by having a play with the My Meadow stamp set released in the 2020 January to June mini catalogue.

It has a lot of potential as I have only used a few of the stamps on this card. I'm happy how my first card using this set turned out though and might get a bit more adventurous next time.

My colours are Petal Pink, Pool Party, Old Olive and Early Espresso. That's the Parisian Blossoms DSP on the second layer and I have also used the Subtles embossing folder on the base card.

Stampin' Up! Saleabration 2020 in Australia: Happy Birthday to You!

Hello stampers. First up ....

Shutterstock_1438501391

I'm excited to be back 'in the office' and ready to spread the joy and benefits of living a creative life.

We are only days away from the start of Stampin' Up!'s biggest promotion of the year, Saleabration. There are SO MANY freebies to earn during Saleabration:

  • Free gifts when you spend $90 or $180 in a single transaction;
  • Free gifts when you buy the starter kit to enjoy a 20% discount on your Stampin' Up! purchases;
  • Free gift when you host a $500 group order or party, or submit a $500 free order yourself.

Stay tuned for more information about Saleabration in the next couple of days.

Today I wanted to show you one of the Saleabration sets you can earn with a $90 spend (before postage) in one transaction. It's called Happy Birthday to You and is a great set for colouring,

It's such a beautiful set. I have coloured this one with Stampin' Blends (Crumb Cake, Petal Pink, Old Olive and Lovely Lipstick). The great news is that there will also be dies available for purchase for this set in February. The ribbon is the Rococo Rose and Gold Ribbon from the 2019 Annual Catalogue (still current until May 31st).

The background embossing folder I have used is the Parisien Flourish 3D Embossing folder in the new Stampin' Up! 2020 January to June Mini Catalogue (previously called Occasions Catalogue).

Here's another take on the same stamp set.

Art With Heart Team October Blog Hop: Ways to use Stampin' Up! Embossing Folders

Art With Heart Stampin Up Team October Blog Hop Embossing Folders

Hey there. Welcome to another Art With Heart Blog Hop. This month we are featuring Stampin' Up's! versatile range of Embossing Folders. There are new Embossing Folders available in every Stampin' Up! catalogue and they are an inexpensive way of adding WOW! to your projects. Currently there are 24 different Embossing Folders in the range.

Tonight we plan on showing you lots of ideas on how to use these folders. My projects are using the Heirloom Frames Dies and coordinating embossing folders.

Woven Heirlooms Dies and Embossing Folders Stampin Up

I have used these products to create some faux wood antique photo frames, which I have used on a scrapbook page and a card. I love how they turned out and they were super easy to make.

Ian page 7

I used the woodgrain 12x12" paper in the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper. I adhered this onto some backing cardstock before I cut the frames.

Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper

The steps to make the frames are:

  1. Adhere the woodgrain DSP to the backing card.
  2. Cut the frames first using the dies.
  3. Place the cut dies in the embossing folders, paying particular attention to which parts you wanted raised. As these are 3D folders, I recommend using the 3D embossing plate (link at bottom of page) to give extra ooomph to the sandwich and a good impression.
  4. Remove the frames, and then sponge Early Espresso ink over the raised pieces, building up to the desired shade.

Now it's time to use the frames. My first project is a heritage style scrapbook page with some childhood photos of myself and my brother, who died 12 years ago. I love these photos, and I think he would forgive me for scrapbooking them in floral papers and pink, lol.

I have used more of the Pressed Petals DSP on the page (I adhered the backing page oto Crumb Cake cardstock, ditressing the edges and spongeing with Early Espresso ink), as well as some of the coordinating Pressed Petals specialty washi tape, metal Designer Elements and a page from the coordinating Pressed Petals journal (the pages are perforated so can be torn off and added to scrapbook pages or cards).  The die-cut 'Forever' word is from the Sweet Silhouettes die set (links below the post).

As an extra embellishment, I created a vintage looking daisy with the Medium Daisy Punch and some Very Vanilla cardstock, which I sponged with Rococo Rose ink and a touch of Early Espresso to age it a bit. Love those Perennial Essence floral centres to give a realistic look to the daisy.

How beautiful is that vintage washi tape from the Pressed Petals Designer Washi tape. I also added a few subtle butterflies around the page which were cut from the Pressed Petals DSP using the Butterfly Duet punch. Now I just need to add the journaling to my page.

My second project is a Christmas card, using the rectangle frame and Toile Christmas stamp set from the Holiday Catalogue.

I have watercoloured the images on our awesome Fluid 100 cotton watercolour paper. I've used Real Red, Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso and Garden Green ink and an Aquapainter. I've added a couple of Garden Green die cut pieces from the Leaf punch. The backing piece of DSP is from Toile Tidings.

I hope you have enjoyed my projects today. Now it's time to leave the Yarra Valley region on the outskirts of Melbourne and visit the very clever Catherine Proctor in the Northern Beaches area of Sydney.

Stampin' Up! Tea Together Stamp Set and coordinating Tea Time Dies

Hello stamping friends.

These cards are from a couple of months ago, but I just realised I hadn't blogged them. They are some of the favourite cards I made this year and my Mother and Mother in Law loved them for their Mothers Day cards. They feature the Tea Together stamp set and coordinating Tea Time dies (see the product links at the end of the post).

Stampin Up Tea Together stamp set with Country Lane Embossing Folder from the 2019 Annual Catalogue. Mothers Day card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

They both feature the Country Floral 3D embossing folder. I brayered Sahara Sand ink onto the debossed side of the folder, before I added the Shimmery White die cut cardstock and embossed. This gives you the effect shown - I was going for an antique vase effect.

I then die stamped and die cut the flowers before I watercoloured them with Blushing Bride, Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive ink.
