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.

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.

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:

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.

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.

Stampin' Up! Distinktive Stamps: Healing Hugs from 2018 Annual Catalogue

Hello crafters.

Today I have one of the new stamp sets from the 2018 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue to showcase. It's called Healing Hugs. 

2018 Stampin' Up! card using Healing Hugs from 2018-19 Annual Catalogue. Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia. #stampinup2018 #stampinupcardideas #healing hugs #distinktive

This is a great set to add to your collection for several reasons:

  • As well as the gorgeous floral image, it has 4 really great usable sentiments for get well cards. The one I have used above is something I always seem to be saying to friends when they are unwell, so I was pleased to see it in a stamp set.
  • This stamp set is one of our Distinktive range of stamps. These stamps are manufactured in a way that created the texture and dimension in just one stamping. I love that as it saves me time and still gives a realistic WOW effect.
  • It's really reasonable prices. Just $37 for the clear mount version.

You can find Healing Hugs HERE In My Online Stampin' Up! store (or on page 110 in the paper copy of the 2018 Annual Catalogue).

It's definitely a set I would recommend from the new catalogue.

OTHER NEW PRODUCTS / TIPS & TRICKS

Here's a few other things to note about this card:

  • I have used  pre-coloured note-cards to speed up my creating. The Delightfully Detailed cards have 4 different watercolour look bases (2 designs in Mint Macaron and 2 Designs in Blackberry Bliss) and you get 5 of each in a pack (link at end of post).
  • The laser cut paper (my second layer) has been hugely popular among demonstrators to create an easy extra WOW! It's super easy to add colour to coordinate with any project as well. I just used my sponge brayer to colour it Soft Sea Foam (one of my FAVE new colours).
  • I added a little bit of extra texture with a simple scrap of ribbon under the flower. I keep my scraps of embellishments in a bowl as you never know when they are going to be handy.

You can check out all the products I have used today in the links at the end of my post.
