Stampin' Up! Basket of Blooms stamp set & Small Bloom punch

Hey there.

Today I have a bright and happy card for you, using the Basket of Blooms stamp set from the 2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue.

Basket of Blooms stamp set by Stampin' Up!. 2020 card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

I was immediately drawn to this stand alone stamp set for several reasons:

  1. The great variety of outline images, including flowers, foliage, vase, basket and flower pot, which make it great for colouring.
  2. It coordinates with the Small Bloom punch, which was one of the free choices during Saleabration 2020, and can also be purchased still.
  3. It's a GREAT price - 14 stamps for $30.

Purchase in my online store in Australia.It's so easy to create beautiful floral arrangements with this set, whether they be simple or more detailed. By being able to punch out some of the flowers, it's easy to add dimension to your project too. Here's the Small Bloom Punch it coordinates with (shop link at the end of the post).

For my card, I used Stampin' Blends to colour the vase (light and dark Seaside Spray and light Misty Moonlight). I stamped the foliage in Granny Apple Green, and the flower in Magenta Madness. My base card is Bumble Bee, and I have used Magenta Madness for the sentiment piece (the sentiment is from the Dressed to Impress stamp set) and for the mat on the stamped piece. The Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder is the perfect way to add some extra interest to the base Bumble Bee card.

I'm looking forward to having more of a play with this gorgeous stamp set. Here's some samples that the Stampin' Up! designers made with this set. Aren't they gorgeous? This set just inspires bright and happy cards and we could all do with some bright and happy right now.

Your Creative Connection 109: Something Old, Something New

600 pixels

Welcome back to another showcase with the global Your Creative Connection team. Today our theme is 'Something Old, Something New', which is perfect timing with the release last week of the NEW 2020/21 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. For my NEW, I have chosen two of the new Stampin' Up! 2020-22 In Colors as well as the new Flowers for Every Season Memories and More Card Pack. For my OLD, I have chosen  the Stitched So Sweetly dies which first featured in the 2020 January to June mini catalogue.

I really like the crisp fresh colour combination I have used today which is three of the new 2020-22 In Colors: Misty Moonlight, Just Jade, Bumble Bee and Whisper White. My base card is Misty Moonlight, and there is a Just Jade layer in there too. The Bumble Bee colour comes from one of the elements included in the Memories and More Card Pack.

The Flowers for Every Season DSP and Flowers for Every Season Memories and More Card Pack (links at the bottom of the post) are really great because they coordinate with ALL five of the new 2020-22 InColors. You will find great versatility with these two products. The cardstock weight flower stickers are included in the Memories and More Card Pack, and they coordinate really well with all the colours. The Stitched So Sweetly dies are also a really versatile product because there are so many ways you can layer them. Check out all the products below my signature in the links. The greeting I have used is from the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set, which is also linked below.

Simple Birthday Card using Stampin' Up! Flowers for Every Season Memories and More Card Pack

Hello friends, I hope you are enjoying the start of a long weekend (well it is here in Australia :) )

It's been a super busy week in Stampin' Up! with the launch of both the 2020 Annual Catalogue, and the new updated version of the Stampin' Up!  online store (I love the crisp clean new look and fabulous graphics). 

Today I have a quick and easy birthday card for you, created using the Flowers for Every Season Memories and More card pack (page 155 in the paper catalogue, or HERE in the online store).

Quick and Easy Flowers for Every Season 2020 Stampin Up cards by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

Here's what I love about this card pack:

  • It's really reasonably priced (just $19.25) and you get stacks to work with including cards using you can use as layers on cardfronts or in pocket scrapbooking, as well as heavy weight stickers (such as the gorgeous ombre 'happy' word I have used here.
  • It has a variety of cards so that the pack coordinates with the entire 2020-22 new Stampin' Up! Incolors. I have used Misty Moonlight and Magenta Madness cardstock, but you can also get a pack of coordinating Memories and More Cards which has 10 cards and envelopes (2 of each new InColour).The great thing about these coordinating cards (shown below) is that they are perfectly sized, so you just need to adhere a large card to the cardfront, or a small card fits inside the preprinted dotted border on the card. How simple is that?

Here's a look at the Flowers for Every Season Card Pack and coordinating Flowers For Every Season Memories and More Cards and Envelopes.

It's really easy to just add a greeting and some quick embellishments and you are done.

Hello friends, happy first day of winter. Melbourne made sure to let us know it was winter today, with a maximum of just 9 degrees celcius in the outer east. Brrrr.

Today I just wanted to show you a quick card, which showcases a colour combination to use with the new 2020-22 Stampin' Up! In Color, Cinnamon Cider.

Cinnamon Petal Pink

I have used Cinnamon Cider as the base (I have embossed it with the NEW Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder). Then I have added my to additional colours of Early Espresso and Petal Pink. I really love how these colours come together. The labels are from the So Sentimental Dies and the greeting is from Peaceful Moments stamp set. I've looped some of the gold metallic trim  in between the labels amd added a Gilded Gem at each end.

Your Creative Connection #108: Love is in the Air

600 pixels

Hello lovely crafters from around the world. Welcome back to another Your Creative Connection Global Showcase. Today's theme was chosen by Barbara Meyer and is 'Love Is in the Air'. I love being a part of this showcase with these amazingly talented global demonstrators!

I've chosen the Silhouette Scenes stamp set, and one of the new 2020-22 Stampin' Up! In Colours for my card today. 

 Silhouette Scenes 'love' card for #YCC108. 2020 Stampin Up card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

When I first started playing with Cinnamon Cider, the new 2020 In Colour I have used as my base card today, I really struggled. Now I totally LOVE the colour. It's such a great warm neutral and coordinates well with many colours. Here's today's colour combination.

Stampin Up In Color 2020 combination Cinnamon Cider, with Early Espresso, Gray Granite and Purple Posy

I have used the Detailed Hearts Die in two ways to create the extra elements on my card. I embossed the Early Espresso cardstock strip using the die, and then I cut the die from Purple Posy cardstock to give me lots the little hearts (plus the base section and lots of leftovers for another project).
