NEW Fine Art Floral Suite Birthday Card and the Painted Texture Embossing Folder

Today's card is a birthday card idea featuring the beautiful Fine Art Floral Suite and the Painted Texture 3D embossing folder in the NEW Stampin' Up! 2021 January to June Mini Catalogue (starting in 8 days).

The Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper is my favourite patterned paper in this catalogue. The beautiful hand painted images are so gorgeous. For this card I have also used the coordinating Fine Art ribbon, and the Art Gallery stamp set.

The Painted Texture 3D embossing folder is also part of the suite and is another way to show off the beautiful texture in this suite. I've also added some Linen Thread, Scalloped Lace Trim and Holiday Rhinestones for additional embellishment.

The stamped panel is one of the light coloured sheets on the reverse of the floral patterns. I have stamped in Flirty Flamingo ink (stamped off once) and my birthday sentiment (from the Happiest of Birthdays stamp set)  is stamped in Night of Navy. I love these colours together. 

PIN IT to save for future inspiration.

Sneak Peek: Simply Succulents Bundle from the 2021 Stampin' Up! January to June Mini Catalogue with Video Tutorial

Hey friends. Another sneak peek of an upcoming product for you. Today I am sharing the Simply Succulents bundle from the 2021 Stampin' Up! January to June Mini Catalogue. I love to garden, and have pots of mixed succulents, so this bundle was a must have for me.

It's also a beautiful set to colour. I have watercoloured this card using the Stampin' Up! ink pads and Water Painters. Our Fluid 100 watercolour paper gives a fabulous base to watercolour and blend on. I'll point out which Stampin' Up! ink colours I have used further down in the blog post.

My base card is Pool Party, and I have created an subtle inky wash (also on Fluid 100 watercolour paper) as the second layer.The Coastal Cabana adhesive sequins from the Artistry Blooms pack complement the card colours card well.

The paper in this suite is so beautiful. The design was handpainted and the texture looks so realistic. I love the look of the stamped off Flirty Flamingo and Merry Merlot ink on the flower. It tones in well with the Blushing Bride card base too. There are some lovely bold colours in other sheets of this patterned paper and I have used those in one of the fun fold cards in the free class I will have on offer (subsribe to newsletter for details coming soon).

Simple and easy handmade card ideas using Stampin' Up! supplies

Hello stamping friends. Today I am sharing with you some simple and easy handmade card ideas using Stampin' Up! supplies and I also have a free PDF tutorial for you to show you exactly what I did with each card. These are great cards for beginners, and the stampset, watercolour pencils and note card and envelope packs are inexpensive items to get you started in your card making hobby.

Even though I have used Stitched Rectangle dies in my card, I have given the measurements in the tutorial to just cut a rectangle for these pieces. You could also substitute a rectangle of patterned paper for the two cards where I have used the vellum doily coloured with Stampin' Blends (again the measurements are in the tutorial). The vase and the mason jar are from the Jar of Flowers bundle which I have shown below. They are a great compliment to the Four Seasons Floral stamp set I have used in this project. The Four Seasons Floral stamp set is great for beginners and is just $24.

I couloured the images using Watercolour Pencils and a Blender Pen (you can also use a Water Painter). You need to stamp the images onto the card using a black Stazon ink pad, so that the outline doesn't run when you add the moisture from the Blender Pen. Stazon is a solvent based ink pad which is why it doesn't run. I have combined a few different colours of pencil in colouring these images, which gives a more realistic effect.

We sell two different sets of watercolour pencils and you can find them both HERE in the online store

I used the jar punch (which is shaped and sized just like a mason jar) for the vase in this card. This can be purchased alone, or as part of the Jar of Flowers Bundle (where you get 10% off by purchasing them together).

There are lots of other floral shapes in the Jar of Flowers stamp set, which coordinate with the jar punch too. The Jar Punch can also be purchased separately.

2020 Christmas Gift Card Holder using Stampin' Up! Poinsettia Petals and Quite Curvy Bundle

Hello friends. Today I have step by step instructions to make a gift card holder from half a sheet of A4 cardstock. I have used Stampin' Up! Poinsettia Petals bundle for the decoration, and a brand new bundle called Quite Curvy for the die cutting on the gift card holder. This Quite Curvy bundle will be in the Stampin' Up! 2021 January to June Mini Catalogue, but is being released early and will be available for customers to purchase from next Tuesday, 3rd November.

Step by Step Instructions

1. Start with a piece of A4 Gray Granite Cardstock, which is cut down the centre vertically.

2. Score from right to left at 8cm and 20cm

3. On the 8cm end (at the right) use a circle punch (I used this 2" circle punch) to cut a semi circle in the end.

4. Add two strips of strong adhesive (like Stampin' Up! Tear and Tape) to the inside edges of this piece. This adhesive is recommended for boxes and 3D items as it sticks really well.

5. This then folds up to make the slot to place the gift card. 

6. Stamp a sentiment in the bottom right hand corner of the folded up piece (this will also show when the gift card holder is closed. My sentiment is from Wrapped in Christmas stamp set, and I stamped in Gray Granite ink.

7. Add a piece of coordinating patterned paper to the top flap (I used a piece of Gray Granite patterned paper from the Neutrals 6x6" patterned paper stack) and die cut the edge with one of the new Curvy Dies (or any other decorative edging die or punch you have). I actually did mine separately but I think adhering the patterned paper on first would have been easier. When you die cut, make sure you do it high enough up so that the sentiment will be visible (but not any of the semi circle cutaway).

8.  For the belly band, cut a strip of Blackberry Bliss cardstock 3.5cm wide, and the length of a piece of A4 cardstock (29.7cm). Cut coordinating DSP the same length but only 3.3cm wide. Adhere the patterned paper to the cardstock strip. If you are joining strips of patterned paper (as I had to) to complete the length, make sure the joins aren't in the middle area, so they wont be seen on the front. I started with a strip of paper in the middle and then added at either end to ensure this.

9. Loosely fold the belly band around the gift card holder and secure with Tear and Tape at the back.

10. Add several layers of linen thread around the belly band and tie at the back. I gathered these together under where the flower was going to be and secured with a piece of tape. I then fanned the threads out a bit at the top and bottom.

11. The flower was watercoloured in the same way as I did the flower in THIS post, except I used Melon Mambo and Blackberry Bliss reinkers this time, and only used Blackberry Bliss die cut foliage.

12. The flower is attached using Stampin' Dimensionals and I have coloured the clear Rhinestone jewells in the centre of the flower using my light Blackberry Bliss Stampin' Blends marker.

There you have it! I hope you have lots of fun making up your very own Gift Card Holder. Friends and family would be wowed to receive a gift card in a holder like this at Christmas.
