Flower Tulips Vellum Thank You Card

Hello friends. Today is all about flowers, and tulips at that! I am using the Stampin' Up! Flowering Tulips bundle from the 2022 January to June Mini Catalogue. In Australia we are now into Autumn and I will soon be planting my tulips and other bulbs for my Spring and Winter flowers. 

The Flowering Tulips bundle includes a stamp set and a set of dies which cuts out images, but also includes some dies to make 3D tulips, including layering petals for three different tulips, the flower stem and leaves.

On this card I have also used the Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper. When a paper is quite bold as this one is, I often use vellum to soften some of the paper. That provides me with a focal point for the flower. To adhere the vellum, I used a cotton bud to smear a really thin layer of Multipurpose Glue on the paper until it was just tacky, and then placed the vellum on top. It adheres without the glue being visible through the vellum.

My flower is cut with Petal Pink cardstock and the petals sponged with Poppy Parade, to coordinate with the colours in the paper. My base card is Pool Party. To embellish my card I have used Linen Thread and Artistry Blooms Adhesive Backed Sequins.

Stampin Up Daffodil Daydream 'Just for You' Card with Step-by-Step Instructions

Hi friends,

I made this Daffodil Daydream card on the weekend and couldn't wait to share it with you. The Daffodil Daydream stamp set and bundle is in the 2022 Stampin' Up! Mini Catalogue, and I have also used the coordinating Daffodil Afternoon DSP. This paper is only available until March 16th as part of Saleabration (earn if FREE with a $90 order before postage).

Stampin Up Daffodil Daydream card by Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator, Melbourne, Australia.

 

Step-by-step instructions to make today's card (find any of the products used, by using the links at the end of my post):

  • I started my card with a Petal Pink card base, and then added a layer (10cm x 14.3cm) of Petal Pink which I had embossed with the Timeworn Type embossing folder (such a gorgeous vintage effect). 
  • Next I added a piece of layering vellum 9cm x 12.5cm. This is a new product in the 2022 January Mini catalogue and it's really gorgeous. There are various designs and some are printed in black, some in white. Perfect for adding some additional layers.
  • Then I have added three strips of the Daffodil Afternoon DSP in coordinating patterns. Each strip is 3cm x 13cm.
  • The image is stamped in black Stazon onto Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper. It was cut out using one of the Scalloped Contour dies.
  • To colour the image, I have used my Water Painter, and the following ink colours: Petal Pink, Flirty Flamingo and Polished Pink.
  • My greeting is from Celebrating You stamp set in the 2022 Mini Catalogue, and is stamped in black Stazon. 
  • I finished off my card with some Very Vanilla Scalloped Lace Trim, some Linen Thread and Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots which are a carry over product from last years July to December Mini Catalogue.

Colour Creations Week 34: Petal Pink

Colour Creations 2021 to 2022 logoWelcome to this week's Art with Heart Team Colour Creations Blog Hop. Today we are showcasing Petal Pink, a warm peach pink.

273293232_10161535103403098_6283669330474894085_n

Today's card is inspired by my water bottle! It's a lovely ombre pattern in shades of Petal Pink, Polished Pink and Melon Mambo.

Water bottle

Here is my card. I really love how it turned out, even though I kind of made it up as I went along!

My base card is Petal Pink, and the second layer is Petal Pink embossed with the Timeworn Type embossing folder.

Step by Step Instructions for Stamped Piece

  1. I started with a piece of Shimmery White cardstock and I used my blending brushes to lay down some Polished Pink ink in the bottom half, and Petal Pink ink in the top half, with lots of blending at the intersection.
  2. Next I blended a little Melon Mambo right at the bottom.
  3. I embossed the small floral image from Blessings of Home stamp set (in the 2022 January to June Mini Catalogue) in white over the top of the blended ink.
  4. Next I used a water painter (the fine tip one) to remove a lot of the ink colour from the leaves and petals. You just brush with water and it lightens the ink lots as it dries.
  5. Finally I added additional ink colours onto the image. I used Polished Pink and Rich Razzleberry for the flowers and Old Olive for the leaves.

To finish my card, I mounted the stamped piece onto a piece of Basic Gray cardstock, and tucked one of the Heart and Home Doilies underneath (the Basic Gray one). I adhered this with Dimensionals. I stamped the long birthday sentiment from the Blessings of Home stamp set in Basic Grey onto Shimmery white, cut it into strips and adhered with Stampin' Seal. I finished off with a double bow of Grey Granite bakers twine.

Colour Creations Week 33: Pear Pizazz with Stampin' Up! Garden Greenhouse

Colour Creations 2021 to 2022 logoHello friends. Another week of Colour Creations for you. This week we have Pear Pizazz, a lovely subtle green with a warm undertone. Pear

I have combined three of my favourite products from the January to June Mini Catalogue in today's card. These are Greenhouse Garden bundle, the Bough Punch and the Abstract Beauty 4x6" Specialty Designer Series Paper. You can see these products in my online store using the links at the end of the page, and there are also product photos further down the post.

Stampin Up Garden Greenhouse 2022 card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator, Melbourne, Australia

I started with a Pear Pizazz side folding C6 card. My next layer is a piece of Pear Pizazz embossed with one of the Greenery Mini Embossing Folders. I really love this embossed pattern. My next layer is a piece of the gorgeous Abstract Beauty specialty DSP. I love the bright happy colours in this paper. It also has some gold foiling.

Next up I have a piece of Basic White cardstock 9.6cm x 7.5cm. I stamped the largest foliage image (from the Garden Greenhouse stamp set) in Pear Pizazz ink. The teeny flowers were added using Polished Pink ink. These were super easy to line up as the stamp set is photopolymer. Make sure you line the bottom of the foliage up with the bottom of the Basic White cardstock piece.

Next up I cut my greenhouse pieces from the Greenhouse Dies. I cut the solid piece from a Window Sheet, and the outline piece with Silver foil. I attached the Silver Foil to an adhesive sheet before I diecut, so it could easily be attached t0 the Window Sheet. I attached the Window sheet to the card with a couple of small pieces of Stampin' Seal. next time I will use mini glue dots, or try sponging a thin layer of Multipurpose Liquid Glue as I have heard that works too.

To finish off my card. I punched the foliage shapes from the Bough punch in Pear Pizazz (the larger piece) and Polished Pink (the smaller piece). There are great foliage pieces included in the Greenhouse dies too, but I wanted to try out my Bough Punch. Finally I stamped the sentiment in Memento black ink and added a couple of Matte Black Dots.

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.

Stampin Up 2021 August Saleabration. Delicate Dahlia's friend card in Polished Pink. Card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne 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.
