Hydrangea Haven Bundle / Hydrangea Hill Suite 2021 Mother's Day Card

Hello crafty people :)

Today I have a Mother's Day card for you using the Hydrangea Hill Suite from the 2021 Stampin' Up! January to June Mini Catalogue. This is a beautiful suite, and one I have found to be very popular with my customers. 

Find the Hydrangea Hill Suite HERE in my online store.

Stampin Up Hydrangea Haven 2021 Mothers Day Card by Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

The star of the show with this card is the Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper (DSP). This paper will only be around for another couple of months, and it's such a great coordinating item for the bundle (the bundle is carrying over to the new 2021 Annual Catalogue). The floral spray on this card is just fussy cut from the DSP. I have also used the new Fresh Freesia InColor cardstock as the base card and the die cut (cut from the Ornate Layers Dies). One of the shades of the Pastel Pearl embellishments from this suite, perfectly coordinate with Fresh Freesia, so I have added these to the card too. I really liked this greeting in the Hydrangea Haven stamp set for Mother's Day. It sums up Mothers everywhere don't you think?

Here's a closer look at the Hydrangea Haven bundle (carrying over) and the Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper (not carrying over beyond June 30th). The Pastel Pearls in the suite are carrying over, as is the Hydrangea Hill Mercury Acetate. The Gorgeous Grape ribbon will be retiring with the paper on June 30th.

Art with Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Rich Razzleberry

106922496_10159992931478098_1171141180047246582_n

I'm excited to have had some time on the weekend to create a card for our Art with Heart Stampin' Up! team's Colour Creations weekly blog hop. This week's colour is Rich Razzleberry, one of my favourite colours for many years. It's a beautiful deep purple pink colour, and a member of our Regals collection.

Rish Razzleberry

My card is a watercolour scene. I haven't played with the lovely Grace's Garden stamp set for so long, and Rich Razzleberry made me think of deep pink/purple  Hollyhock flowers, so that's what I went with. My scene is made on watercolour paper, with a Crumb Cake mat, and adhered with Dimensionals onto a Rich Razzleberry card base. The card base has also been embossed with the Subtle 3D embossing folder.

Stampin Up Graces Garden watercolour card by Claire Daly Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

I have used Rich Razzleberry, Gorgeous Grape and Bumblebee for my flower colours and Garden Green for the foliage. The gate is a combination of Crumb Cake and Soft Suede, the cat is watercoloured in Gray Granite and the bird is Early Espresso with a teeny bit of diluted Real Red on the tummy. For the foreground, I have used a watercolor wash of Sahara Sand and for the sky I have used my blending brushes and Pool Party for a very light sky effect.

To finish off my card, I have added some Linen Thread, and stamped the 'Hello' sentiment from Graces Garden stamp set, in Early Espresso. I also added a metallic heart brad that has been sitting in my scrapbooking stash for many many years.

Here's a closer look at the goregous Graces Garden stamp set from the 2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. I love how you can use the images either individually or to make your own garden scene.

Dragonfly Punch Birthday Card

Hello friends. Today I have a handmade birthday card for you, featuring a dragonfly. This card is made with the Stampin Up Dragonflies Punch, the coordinating Dragonfly Garden stamp set, and the Dandy Garden Designer Series Paper

I love dragonflies. My Mum gave my a crystal and wire one many years ago which I treasure. I have been doing some research about Dragonfly symbolism and found this at whatismyspriritanimal.com

"As a Spirit Animal, Dragonfly moves into our life often when we are taking things too seriously and losing our joy. This teacher restores lightness to our spiritual wings and mental processes. This animal spirit guide’s reminder is simple: find the positive no matter how dark it seems.

Dragonfly is tied intimately to your emotional state. It asks: what feelings are you having that you’re hiding? What feelings are self-created illusions? What feelings do you need to explore more deeply. Give yourself to the Dragonfly’s transformative power and sense of peace"

The dragonfly has beautiful symbolism don't you think?

Now onto my card. The primary colour on my card is Bumblebee, a really bright positive colour.

Stampin Up Dragonfly Gardens Bundle / Dragonflies Punch birthday card.

 

I have started my card with one of the pre-printed Dandy Garden Memories and More Cards & Envelopes. These are beautiful, come in a set of 20 cards and envelopes, and the envelopes have printed patterned liners which coordinate with the cards. They are a great size too (the folded card size is 10.8 x 15.9cm). The printing on the card is Bumblebee on white.

Dandy Garden Notecards - Available in my online Stampin Up store

I added a frame that I die cut from the Ornate Layers Dies (also in Bumblebee), and then added a piece of Bumblebee patterned paper from the Dandy Garden DSP in the centre of the frame (the size to cut is 5.5 x 9.0cm).

Dandy Garden Designer Series paper (DSP) Availalable in my Online Stampin Up Store

For the Dragonfly, I have created three layers:

  1. The base layer is a dragonfly stamp from the Dragonfly Gardens stamp set, stamped in Night of Navy ink onto Misty Moonlight cardstock, and then cut out with the Dragonflies Punch. This one is adhered directl to the card.
  2. The second layer is cut directly from the Dandy Garden DSP using the Dragonflies punch. Stampin' Up! is great with coordination. This one is adhered using Mini Dimensionals.
  3. The top layer is a double thread bow of the gold cord trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack. I didn't plan to add this, but I had it left over from another project and it just worked. The bow is adhered with a glue dot.

The Dragonfly Garden stamp set has four great sentiments, but I wanted this for a handmade birthday card, so I have used  a stamp from the Best Year stamp set. I have stamped in Night of Navy onto white and just used my Stampin' Up! Paper Trimmer to cut out the sentiment. Finally I have added two Gilded Gems near my sentiment.

Stampin Up Birthday Card using 2021 Fine Art Floral Suite

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.

Stampin Up 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.
