Sending brightness and sunshine to you for the weekend: Stampin Up Saleabration Delicate Dahlia 'Happy for You' card.

Hello friends. Time for a bright happy card don't you think? I wanted to send some brightness and 'sunshiney' thoughts out into the world and wish everyone a happy weekend. I know many of us are limited as to what we can do, but I find even a warm cuppa in the son, a read of a good book or wandering in the garden makes me happy right now.

I made today's card using Delicate Dahlia, which is one of the free Saleabration stamp sets from Stampin Up Australia.

This card base and stamping is Polished Pink, and some of the images are stamped off. The sentiment label shape is die cut from Tasteful Label dies. The Delicate Dahlia stamp is a Distinktive type stamp, which means you get variations in the texture with one stamping.

I hope this card brings a smile to your face and that you find some simple moments of happiness over the weekend.

Stampin Up Australia: Cinnamon Cider Thinking of You Card using Quiet Meadow Bundle

Colour Creations 2021 to 2022 logo

Hello friends. Today I am participating in my Art with Heart Team Colour Creations Blog Hop. I'm so luck to have a team full of amazing creative people who love to create and share with each other, and who jump in and run activities like this for our team. It's so fun! 

This week's colour is Cinnamon Cider, one of the 2020 InColors. I really love this gorgeous mid brown colour. It really does remind me of a comforting warm drink.

Here is a Thinking of You card I came up with for today's challenge. It was made much easier by using one of the Gingerbread and Peppermint Memories and More Cards in the new Stampin' Up! Australia July to December Mini Catalogue. The rest of my card uses the Quiet Meadow Bundle from the 2020 Annual Catalogue.

Stampin Up Quiet Meadow Thinking of You Card. 2021 card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

I used Early Espresso ink to stamp one of the stamps from the Quiet Meadow stamp set onto the left of the label shape on the pre-printed base card. This stamp set coordinates well with the distressed vintage look of the base card I think.

I die cut some of the stems from the Meadow Dies, in Crumb Cake and Night of Navy and arranged these a little to the right of the stamping. I adhered them in a couple of places with glue dots.

To finish off my card, I stamped the sentiment in Early Espresso and die cut it with the label shape in the Meadow Dies. Before I adhered it with Dimensionals, I coiled a little Natural Linen Thread underneath (I adhered this with some tape).

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.

Stampin Up Delicate Dahlia Sympathy card for 2021 August / September Saleabration. Card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

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?
