Stampin' Up! Beautiful Friendship Single Layer Card

Hello stamping friends.

Today I have a really simple card for you, using the Beautiful Friendship stamp set from the 2019/2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. I grabbed this stamp set when I needed to make a couple of quick birthday cards recently. 

Stampin Up Beautiful Friendship 2019 card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

It's basically a one layer card, except for a small greeting (I used a greeting from Butterfly Wishes stamp set as it was a better size for my card; I do love the greetings which come with the Beautiful Friendship set though). I stamped directly onto Shimmery White cardstock, and cut a 2cm strip from the bottom of the front of the card, and added a strip of Soft Sea Foam patterned DSP (from the subtles 6x6 pack) to the base of the card.

Here's the colour combination I used with the stamping:

The greeting is stamped in Basic Gray, and cut out from one of the dies in the Detailed Bands die set (link at end of post), and I have added some 2019-2021 In Color Faceted Dots for embellishing.

Here's a closer look at the Beautiful Friendship  stamp set (also linked at the end of the post). It really is super easy to use, You just keep on adding layers of flowers and leaves and you are done. The stamp set is Photopolymer so it's super easy to line up as well.

The great news is that this stamp set is just $38 (link at the end of the post), so a great one to add to your collection and a stamp set I think you will reach for again and again.

Stampin' Up! Heart of Christmas Week 9: Spreading the joy of creativity for a handmade Christmas.

Hello friends. It's time for our weekly dose of Christmas inspiration. It's week 9. I hope you are enjoying our weekly posts. Have you started making your Christmas cards yet?

Heart of christmas 2019 full size

Today's card features a stamp set that has been very popular in the 2019 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue. It's called Beauty and Joy. I was drawn to it because it reminded me of the beautiful stone pots and planters I admired in Europe. Isn't it lovely?

Here's the card I made with it. 

Stampin' Up! Beauty and Joy stamp set with Night Before Christmas DSP. 2019 Christmas card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

I've used Mossy Meadow as the base card and stamped the tree in Mossy Meadow with Early Espresso for the trunk. The urn is stamped in the Celestial Copper Delicata metallic ink pad. I LOVE these ink pads. Have you seen my latest You Tube video showing 4 techniques to use with them? My You Tube channel link is in top right corner.

The Designer Series Paper is from the Night Before Christmas 6x6" DSP pack.  The greeting is from the Night before Christmas Memories and More Card Pack and the embellishments are the Star Designer Elements (all product links below the post).

4 Ways to use Delicata Metallic Inks on Your Stampin' Up! projects.

I am totally LOVING that Stampin' Up! are selling the Delicata metallic ink pads in the 2019 Holiday Catalogue. These are the BEST metallic inks on the market in my opinion. 

Some of the featured of these inks are:

  • Great lustre and shine that wont fade over time
  • Acid free and archival
  • Water based
  • Air dries in 10 minutes with no smudging at all once dry

We carry three colours of the full size ink pad and reinker :

Here's what they look like.

Ink

They are perfect for a range of techniques, and I have put together a video showing you how they stamp on a variety of cardstock types, as well as some techniques you can use with them on your Stampin' Up! projects. 

 

Here's a closer look at the cards I have shown in the video (the Seaside Spray reindeer card was featured yesterday in my Heart of Christmas week 4 post, and that includes step by step instructions to make that card).

In the watercolouring section of the video, I featured this Good Morning Magnolia card.

Video on blog. Stampin' Up! Good Morning Magnolia stamp set watercoloured and highlighted with Delicata metallic ink. Card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

Here's a list of the Stampin' Up! products I have used to make this card (I stamped the image in Dove Grey Stazon. Unfortunately Stampin' Up! don't carry that yet, but I love it for watercolouring when I want a lighter edge effect).

  • Stamps: Good Morning Magnolia
  • Cardstock: Shimmery White and Rococo Rose
  • Ink: Petal Pink & Rococo Rose (petals), Smoky Slate (around the image), Mossy Meadow (leaves) and Celestial Copper (centre and highlights)
  • Tools: Aquapainter
  • Embellishments: Pearl Basic Jewels, Rococo Rose Scalloped Linen Ribbon, Linen Thread

The other card I featured was this one, showcasing the stamping and misting using Celestial Copper. The shimmery mist of Celestial Copper on the Early Espresso and Very Vanilla cardstock is much easier to see in the video close ups.

Video on blog. Stampin Up Very Versailles (2019 Annual) and Beauty and Joy (2019 Holiday) with Delicata mettalic ink used two wats.

Here's a list of the Stampin' Up! products I have used on this card (you can see the links for these products at the end of the post):

  • Stamps: Very Versailles and Beauty and Joy (Holiday Catalogue), Butterfly Wishes (greeting; from Annual Catalogue)
  • Ink: Early Espresso, Garden Green and Celestial Copper
  • Cardstock: Very Vanilla and Early Espresso
  • Embellishments: Linen thread
  • Tools / other: Stampin' Spritzer, Isocol (rubbing alcohol)

These stamp pads are so awesome and will really add extra wow to your projects, Grab them in my online store using the links below.

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.
