Stampin' Up! Fitting Florets / Framed Florets Early Release coming soon!

Hey friends, today I wanted to show you a card I have made using a collection of products which will be available for sale to customers on November 1st. It's an early release bundle from the 2023 January to June Mini Catalogue. It consists of the Framed Florets bundle with some amazing oval dies, along with a coordinating paper and embellishments and a Christmas sentiment stamp set that is perfectly sized to fit in the ovals (these last three will only be available until January 3rd, but the bundle will be available for the life of the mini).

For me, the centrepiece of this gorgeous collection is definitely the dies. The die set includes gorgeous decorative oval dies, as well as dies that cut around the images, and some additional foliage.

The colour palette and imagery in the Designer Series Paper is so gorgeous. You can even use the dies or some fussy cutting to cut images from the DSP to use on your projects.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Rose Watercolour Birthday Card

Hello stamping friends.

As I mentioned in previous posts, it's World Watercolour Month  in July, so here's a watercolour birthday card for you using the Cottage Rose bundle from the Stampin Up 2022 Annual Catalogue. 

Stampin Up Cottage Rose birthday card Claire Daly, Stampin Up demonstrator, Melbourne, Australia

The paper is the Abigail Rose DSP which is part of the same suite that includes the Cottage Rose bundle. It's called the Abigail Rose Suite, and you can find it on page 56/57 of the 2022 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. The sentiment is from the same set. The embellishments I have added are Linen Thread and one of the Brushed Metallic Dots on the folded DSP corner.

For the watercolouring, I have used ink from the inside of my ink pads and Water Painters. I used Blushing Bride for the flower, Garden Green for the leaves and a bit of Crumb Cake around the other foliage poking out behind the rose.

My style of watercolouring is a messy, vintage look and I don't always stay within the lines. I like that though and it's less pressure so more relaxing! I did an in depth video some time ago showing my style of watercolouring, so have a look if you would like more information about what I do. I LOVE watercolouring. It's my favourite way to add colour to cards.

 

You can also view lots of other examples of my watercoloured cards HERE.

If you are interested in more card ideas using the Abigail Rose suite, I have a 5 card instant download PDF class available for $15AUD (approx $10-$11 USD on today's currency exchange rates). You can find my PDF Instant Download Classes HERE.

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.

My fourth project is a fun fold card I made for my free subscriber tutorials a couple of weeks ago (you can subscribe for these HERE).

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.

Stampin' Up! Potted Geraniums Birthday Card

Geraniums are one of those plants that evoke happy feelings and memories for me, so when I saw the Potted Geraniums bundle in the 2022 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue, it was straight into my cart! Geraniums were my Dad's favourite flower (especially white ones) and they also remind me of Spring, and the gorgeous flowering balconies in Barcelona and Paris.

Here's my first card with this bundle.

Stampin Up Potted Geranium 2022 birthday card by Claire Daly, Melbourne, Australia.

I have started with a Basic Gray base, and used my blending brush to add a little Pool Party to the Basic White card front. There's so many good things to love about this bundle! For starters you can either stamp or die cut the flowers and both give you a lovely two toned effect, which Geraniums are known for. I have used Melon Mambo and Polished Pink for the flowers, Garden Green for the leaves (stamped off for the more solid layer), and Basic Gray for the pot (I love grey pots!).

Secondly, I love the two step stamping on both the foliage and the weathered pot. There's even a stamp and die to cut out the thin strip of soil you can see. Thirdly, I love the little plant label that has three different words / phrases that fit in it.

Finally, I LOVE the sentiments in this yet; both the words and the font. There's also a really gorgeous stitched label die included. I finished my card off by embellishing with some Iridescent Rhinestone Jewels.

Introducing NEW Stampin' Up! 2022 InColor Starry Sky with the new Bottled Happiness stamp set

Hello friends, it's time to explore the last of our new 2022 InColors, which are now just a week away with the launch of the 2022 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue on May 3rd.

Today's final colour is Starry Sky, a lovely mid to deep blue with a purple undertone. Here's how it looks with some of the other Stampin' Up! current colours. 

Stampin Up Starry Sky 2022 InColor

For my card today, I have used one of the Tea Boutique note cards (these come in each of the 5 new InColors) together with the new Bottled Happiness stamp set. Both of these products are available in the new Annual Catalogue commencing on May 3rd.

Stampin Up 2022 Annual Catalogue Sneak Peek. Starry Sky with Bottle Happiness stamp set. By Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

I really love how this colour combination of Starry Sky, Sweet Sorbet, Old Olive and Basic White came together.

Stampin Up 2022 Color / Colour Combination Starry Sky, Sweet Sorbet, Old Olive.

The Bottled Happiness stamp set is fun to stamp with! The flower and leaf sections come as two separate photopolymer stamps, so they are easy to line up. The bottle is also in two parts. For the solid piece, I stamped off once with the Starry Sky ink, and for the outline section I stamped at full strength. I also added some clear Wink of Stella to the bottle to give it a bit of shimmer. There is also a coordinating bottle punch for this stamp set (and there is a 10% discount if you bundle them together).

The polka dot Sweet Sorbet paper that is tucked under the left side of the card comes from the 2022-2024 InColor DSP pack that will be available next week. The sentiment is from the Bottled Happiness stamp set and is stamped in Starry Sky. It's cut out with a really versatile new die set called Stylish Shapes.
