Stampin' Up! Positive Thoughts Thinking of You / Get Well Card

Hello stampers. Today I have got a second card for you featuring the Positive Thoughts stamp set from the 2020 Stampin' Up! January to June Mini Catalogue.  This card would be perfect for a get well or thinking of you card.

Stampin Up Positive Thoughts Stamp Set and Natures Thoughts Dies. Card by Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

Dahlias have made a comeback in floral circles, and it's great to have these gorgeous Dahlia images to stamp. I stamped these ones in Blushing Bride, and then used a sponge dauber to sponge a little Rococo Rose ink onto the outer petals and centre. Here's my colour combination today.

Stampin Up Color / Colour Combination Sahara Sand, Rococo Rose, Soft Sea Foam, Mint Macaron, Blushing Bride.

The coordinating Nature's Thoughts dies make this stamp set extra easy to use. In addition to cutting out the major stamped images, it includes some extra bits and pieces such as the stitched rectangle, and the border piece (the Mint Macaron piece).

As I mentioned in my last post, one of the things I love most about the Positive Thoughts stamp set is the thoughtful sentiments and the lovely font. This 'Hugs, Prayers and Love' sentiment is so versatile.

Stampin' Up! Positive Thoughts Stamp Set and limited time coordinating dies.

Happy Saturday crafty people. Today I have a beautiful soft floral card for you, using the gorgeous Positive Thoughts stamp set in the 2020 Stampin' Up! January to June Mini Catalogue. This is such a beautiful stamp set in my opinion.

I just love the imagery in this Positive Thoughts stamp set, the words in the greetings and also the lovely font in the greetings, It's very 'me'.

I really love how my colour combination came together for this card too. Grey Granite is such a gorgeous neutral for a card base.

The fern image I have stamped on the base card is Gray Granite stamped off once, to give a soft frame for the layers on the card.

Poppy Party Day 5: Stampin' Up! Painted Poppies Get Well Card

Hello stampers. Today I am bringing you day 5 (and my final day) of posts showcasing the Stampin' Up! Painted Poppies bundle from the 2020 January to June Mini Catalogue. Today's card is a get well card. 

Stampin Up Painted Poppies Bundle. Gift with Purchase Jan 12-19th . Claire Daly Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

This greeting is one of the 2 part greetings in the Saleabration level 1 set Sending You Thoughts. Here's the second part of the greeting in the centre of the card,

Stampin Up Painted Poppies Bundle. Gift with Purchase Jan 12-19th . Claire Daly Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

I love how the stamped Poppy Parade flowers and Old Olive leaves work so well with the sheet of Peaceful Poppies DSP I have used as the first layer of my card. The black and white of the labels (included in the Painted Labels Dies which are part of the bundle) and greeting contrasts well with this. I have added a few of the Peaceful Poppies sequins to the greeting label to finish off the card.

Coming soon / sneak peek: Stampin' Up! Tulip Builder Punch and Timeless Tulips Bundle

If you love tulips like me, you will love a new bundle coming in the 2020 January to June mini catalogue, called Timeless Tulips Bundle.

Tulips are one of my favourite flowers, and living in an area of Australia where we have quite a cool winter, means I can plant them in pots for a lovely early spring display. I love going to the Tesselaar bulb stand at the Melbourne International Flower and Garden show and choosing my bulbs each year. This bulb grower isn't far from me in the Yarra Valley, and each year they put on a Tulip Festival in September .

Here are some tulips from my patio garden.

Tulips

I was excited to see the Timeless Tulips bundle in the new catalogue which starts on January 3rd. It's a great stamp set with a coordinating punch and is a a great price for a bundle too!

Here's the card we made with the bundle as one of our make and takes at OnStage in Sydney in November. These ones were done in Rococo Rose. I'm looking forward to experimenting with lots of different colour combinations for my tulips.

Art With Heart Team May Blog Hop: New Catalogue Preview

Welcome to the May blog hop for the lovely Art With Heart team girls. Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative products using supplies from the upcoming 2019 - 2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. If you would like a copy of the brand new annual catalogue, contact any of the girls on the blog hop and we will get in touch with you.

My projects feature a beautiful new Designer Paper called Mosaic Mood. This paper pack didn't immediately jump out at me in the catalogue, but then we received a pack as an all attendee give away on the last day of Onstage. Once opening the pack, the beautiful colours jumped right out at me, as did the clear embossed parts which add beautiful texture and interest. It's a really pretty 12 x 12 paper pack.

I have used the paper to make two cards for some friends that needed a virtual hug recently. There are lots of beautiful floral mosaic images to cut from the paper, and I used those as the feature of my cards.

Stampin Up 2019 Annual Catalogue Mosaic Mood DSP and Flourishing Phrases. Sympathy card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

For some added interest on this first card, I embossed one of the layers with the Subtle embossing folder, which gives a beautiful textured but subtle effect. I also did some very light stamping on the base card (the leaf image is from Healing Hugs stamp set). My greeting on this card is from a set carrying over into the new 2019 Annual Catalogue, called Flourishing Phrases. The inside sentiment says 'with warmth and caring from me'. The greeting on the front of the card fit's nicely in one of the stitched circles from the Stitched Shapes die set. This is one of my most used die sets because it has ovals, squares and circles in the one pack.

Stampin Up 2019 Annual Catalogue Mosaic Mood DSP and Flourishing Phrases. Sympathy card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

As you can see, there's a range of beautiful colours in this paper. The catalogue tells me that the coordinating colours are: Blushing Bride. Crushed Curry, Garden Green, Mint Macaron, Soft Suede, Terracotta Tile, Very Vanilla and Whisper White. I adapted that a little and used the following colours to give my cards a soft pastel look:

Claire's Stampin' Up! Colour Combination: Blushing Bride, Mint Macaron, Soft Sea Foam, So SaffronI haven't used So Saffron in what feels like forever, but I think it works really well with this new Mosaic Mood Designer Series Paper. The greeting I have used on this card is from Healing Hugs, another set carrying over to the 2019 Annual Catalogue. 

Stampin Up 2019 Annual Catalogue Mosaic Mood DSP and Healing Hugs. Get well card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

I've used the Stitched Rectangle Dies, and the Stitched Labels dies for the layers of my greeting. I do like my stitched dies, and any interesting shapes I can use for stamping greetings or layering. This large stitched label is one of my favourite dies.
