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.

A Stampin' Up! Cinnamon Cider Colour Combination for you ..

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.

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.

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).

New Stampin' Up! 2020 In Colours: Introducing Misty Moonlight

Hello friends. Today I am introducing the last of the 5 new 2020 Stampin' Up! InColours. Each year Stampin' Up! introduces 5 colours that are around for 2 years. Today I am introducing the last (alphabetically) of the new 2020 colours, Misty Moonlight.

Misty Moonight is a mid strength blue with grey undertones. At first I thought it was a little like Dapper Denim that we had a few years ago, but side by side it is less intense and more of a grey-blue. Here is a colour comparison New 2020 In Colour Misty Moonlight Stampin' Up!

Here is how it looks next to the retired colour of Dapper Denim.

Misty Moonlight vs Dapper Demim Stampin' Up!

My card today is a super simple card showing Misty Moonlight with two of the other new 2020 Stampin' Up! InColours, Bumble Bee and Magenta Madness. I have used the 6x6" In Colour paper stack for the 1st DSP layer and the Magenta Madness strip.

For my greeting I die cut one of the stitched ovals from Stitched Shapes dies. As we don't have the ink pads yet, I have stamped the 'birthday' from Well Said stamp set in Night of Navy, and added a 'happy' which I diecut in Bumblebee from the Word Wishes dies. I think these three colours work well together.

New Stampin' Up! 2020 In Colours: Introducing Magenta Madness

Hello friends. Are you ready for another new 2020 Stampin' Up! In Colour? You had better put your sunnies on for this one.

Magenta Madness is a bright clear blue based pink, ready to brighten up all your papercraft projects. Side by side, I find it lighter and brighter than Melon Mambo. It's a fun colour!

New 2020 In Colout Magenta Madness Stampin UpFor my Magenta Madness card, I chose one of the Flowers for All Seasons Memories and More Cards and Envelopes card bases, and added one of the floral 3x4" cards. I love how the dotted frame on the card base is a feature already printed on the cards.

I thought Magenta Madness looked good with Bumblebee, so I added a thin mat of Bumble Bee around the 3x4" card and also as a label beneath my greeting (this label is from the Stitched So Sweetly dies and I use these a lot!). The twine from the Flowers for All Seasons ribbon combo pack picks up the Misty Moonlight in the 3x4" card. I have also cut and layered a couple of flowers using the Small Bloom punch (a carryover from Saleabration which is in the new catalogue).
