Sneak Peek of Stampin' Up! Saleabration: Delicate Dahlia stamp set

Hello crafty people. Today I have another sneak peek for you and it's my favourite pick from the new Stampin' Up! Australia Saleabration Catalogue starting on August 3rd (this year we have 2 Saleabration promotions - one in January / February, and one in August / September. This is one of the choices which can be earned for free with a $180 order (before postage) between August 3rd and September 30th. I love Dahlia's as a flower, and this gorgeous set is Distinctive. which means you get variations in stamping and the illusion of texture from just one stamping.

The Delicate Dahlia stamp set includes outline images and solid images along with a smaller flower, leaves and 4 sentiments. I have used the outline stamp in Early Expresso on Early Espresso cardstock for the base card. For the centre stamped panel, I inked my stamp in Blushing Bride and then used a sponge dauber to apply some Calypso Coral ink in the centre and very outer edge of the Dahlia. Some of the images are also stamped off. The stamped panel is adhered to one of the stitched die cuts from Stitched So Sweetly dies.

The sentiment is also from the Delicate Dahlias stamp set and fits perfectly in one of the Stitched Rectangle dies. I added some loosely coiled twine for some additional texture.

Stampin' Up! Quiet Meadow Thinking of You Card

Hello crafty friends.

Today I have another card using the Quiet Meadow bundle from the Stampin' Up! Australia 2021 Annual Catalogue. I love this bundle, probably one of my favourites in the Annual Catalogue.

Stampin Up Quiet Meadows Thinking of You Card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

I started with a base of Soft Succulent cardstock and embossed it with the Pretty Flower embossing folder. The various wildflowers were die cut from Fluid 100 watercolour paper and then I used my Aquapainters to colour them. I used Soft Succulent ink on the stems and leaves, and Polished Pink for the flowers. I tied them together with some white bakers twine and then adhere to the card in a couple of places with glue dots. Finally I stamped my sentiment from Quiet Meadows stamp set in Soft Succulent onto Basic White cardstock and cut it out using one of the dies from the Ornate Labels Dies.

Quick and Easy Stampin' Up! Artistically Inked 'Hello' Card

A quick card is a good card, right? Sometimes for me that is definitely the case, other times I like to play with techniques. Today though, I want to show you a quick and easy card using the Artistically Inked bundle from the Stampin Up Australia 2021 Annual Catalogue.

Quick and easy Stampin Up Artistically Inked bundle card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

 

Measurements / Supplies:

To make this card you will need (find these items using the links at the bottom of the post):

  • Standard C6 top folded Pear Pizazz card as the base.
  • A piece of Expressions In Ink Designer Series Paper 10cm x 14.3cm (the piece with Pear Pizazz and Pale Papaya on it)
  • A die cut (out of Pear Pizazz) of the large leaf /branch piece from the Artistic Dies
  • 3 adhesive sequins from the Expressions In Ink Ephemera Pack
  • A piece of Pale Papaya and White ribbon, 25cm in length
  • White bakers twine
  • A scrap of white cardstock and Pear Pizazz ink pad to stamp the greeting from the Artistically Inked stamp set.

Quick and easy Stampin Up Artistically Inked bundle card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

 

Step by Step Instructions:

  1. I adhered the piece of DSP to the card using Stampin' Seal adhesive (you could also use Multipurpose Glue)
  2. I adhered the die cut with glue dots in about 3 or 4 places.
  3. Wrap the Pale Papaya and White ribbon over the top of the branch and overlap on the underside of the card. I just used Stampin' Seal to keep it in place but be sure to not place any adhesive where you will be tying the bow with the White bakers twine. You don't want the ribbon adhered too tightly for the same reason.
  4. Stamp the 'hello' sentiment in Pear Pizazz ink onto a scrap of white cardstock. Trim and cut the ends on an angle. 
  5. Adhere the sentiment piece towards the bottom right of the card and place the three adhesive sequins around the edges.

That's all there is to it. Easy, right?

Art With Heart Team 2021 Colour Creations Blog Hop: Basic Gray & In Symmetry Stamp Set

Colour Creations 2021 to 2022 logoHello friends. It's time to play with colour again. This week I am participating in the Art with Heart Team (my amazing Stampin' Up! team of awesomely creative ladies) Colour Creations blog hop. Each week we have a new colour, and this week it is a neutral, Basic Gray.  I have chosen to work with the In Symmetry stamp set and coordinating Sweet Symmetry Designer Series Paper. Both of these were new in the 2021 - 2022 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue.

Here's the first of the two cards I made. The strip of paper I used on the cutaway edge on the inside was my favourite piece from the Sweet Swmmetry DSP, so I used that as my colour inspiration for stamping and the frame. My flower is stamped in Flirty Flamingo and I have used Just Jade for the stem and leaves. The scalloped frame is from the Scalloped Contours Dies (the coordinating dies to the Colour and Contour stamp set). This is die cut in Bumblebee. This stamp set lends itself to very graphis design, so this dotty embossing folder was perfect to give some texture to the Basic Gray front of the card. It's one of the two folders in the Checks & Dots Embossing Folder.

To add some dimension and extra interest to my flower, I stamped an additional layer and fussy cut so I could pop that up with Dimensionals. To finish my card I just needed some Rhinestone Jewels and a Basic Gray sentiment. I really love this 'hey friend' sentiment which is part of the In Symmetry stamp set.

My second card uses the same sheet of DSP, but I have stamped the larger flower (Flirty Flamingo) and leaves (Just Jade), and made the frame Basic Gray.

This time I stamped my greeting in Night of Navy, to pick up that colour in the Sweet Symmetry DSP. Here's a closer look at the colours used today. Stampin Up 2021 colour / color combination. Basic Gray, Flirty Flamingo, Just Jade, Bumble Bee and Night of Navy

Stampin' Up! Bloom Where You are Planted Suite and Plentiful Plants Bundle

Hello stamping friends. 

Today I have a card that is perfect for the plant lovers (and that's me too!). This thank you card, features a brand new suite in the 2021 - 2022 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue, called Bloom Where You are Planted. The centre piece in this bundle is the Plentiful Plants Bundle of stamp set and coordinating dies. There is also a delightful plant themed Bloom Where You are Planted Designer Series Paper and some paper lattice pieces.

Stampin Up Plentiful Plants Bundle and Bloom Where You are Planted Suite. 2021 card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

I have used Soft Succulent (a new 2021 InColor) as the base card, and the brick paper is from the Bloom Where You are Planted DSP.

Stampin Up Plentiful Plants Bundle and Bloom Where You are Planted Suite. 2021 card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

For this card, the posts and plants were actually cut from the DSP using the dies which coordinate with the images in a couple of the sheets of the paper. I also fussy cut a couple of others using paper snips. The macrame hanger and the pot stand were cut from Crumb Cake Cardstock using the dies. The lattice was sponged with Early Espresso ink (it comes as Kraft thick paper) so there was more definition between the bricks and the lattice. I tied a double layer of linen thread around the top of the card.

Here's a look at the bundle so you can see the leaves and pot dies included (that also coordinate with the paper - VERY cool).

The sentiment is the only thing stamped on this stamp set! I have used Early Espresso ink to stamp the greeting on Crumb Cake cardstock, and used the Everyday Label Punch to cut this out (I then trimmed some excess from the top and bottom of the label using my trimmer).

The good news is, you can buy all of these scrumptious products in one suite, all together. It's called the Bloom Where You are Planted Suite and you can find it HERE in my Online Stampin' Up! Store.
