2023 Stampin' Up! January Mini Catalogue Sneak Peek: Fancy Floral DSP

Hey friends. Today I want to show you one of the gorgeous new Designer Series Papers in the Stampin' Up! 2023 January to April Mini Catalogue. It's called Fancy Flora DSP, and it has a gorgeous painted texture look with exquisite papers. It will be available to purchase from January 5th. This paper will be an excellent one to coordinate with many of your existing floral stamp sets too. In addition the the beautiful imagery, the reverse of each sheet has a really versatile coordinating monochromatic painted image. Isn't it gorgeous? I especially love that it coordinates with one of my favourite InColors from 2022 - Orchid Oasis.

Here's a look at all of the coordinating colours.

Here's a fun fold card I made with this paper, and an existing stamp set we all know and love - Artistically Inked which is in the Stampin' Up! Annual catalogue.

I'm not quite sure of the name of this fold. I cased a card my lovely friend Sharon Davern gave me. It's nifty how it folds out though.

I added some Wink of Stella to the flowers for a little extra. I've also used some of the new Iridescent Pastel Gems which are part of the new Fancy Flora Suite available on January 5th.

Stampin Up Wonderful World 2022 Saleabration Bundle 4 Ways

Hello friends. 

Today I am showcasing four projects using one of the gorgeous Saleabration bundles you can earn for FREE with a qualifying order during Saleabration which is on during July and August. This is one of the level 2 gifts, so you can earn if for FREE with a $180 order before postage (read all about Saleabration and see all the things you can get earn FREE here). The bundle includes a gorgeous floral stamp set, and a coordinating 12x12" Designer Series paper pack.

Stampin Up Wonderful World

This card uses a quick and easy watercolour technique. I stamped the image in Orchid Oasis onto Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper, and then spritzed the paper with water until the colour ran a bit.

I've layered some of the gorgeous papers in the DSP pack, along with some layering vellum (love the prints in this!) and some linen thread. My greeting is from the Happiness Abounds stamp set and is embossed in white onto Gray Granite cardstock.

My second card is super simple. I just used the Rectangle Postage Stamp Punch to cut three images from the DSP, and layered them onto one of the DSP pieces and added a sentiment. This greeting is from the Potted Geranium stamp set, and is stamped in Crumb Cake onto Basic White cardstock. I have created the label ends using the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch, which punches two different types of label ends in three widths (super versatile in my craft stash).

Next I created a little gift box to go with the above card. This was also super simple to make, as I used one of the new Envelope Treat Boxes (in the July to December mini catalogue) which are precut and scored. I just measured and cut pieces of the DSP to fit on the sides and top of the box (the closure is on the bottom). I also used the Tailored Tags dies to cut a little matching tag from the DSP. The Potted Geranium stamp set has some cute small sentiments to fit on the tag.

This card fold up nicely to fit inside a C6 envelope. I was inspired to make this after seeing some lovely cards by Helen Reid of All Things Stampy in the UK. You can see Helen's version of this card HERE.

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.

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.
