Stampin' Up! Prized Peony with a Video Tutorial

Hello lovely friends,

It's good to be back. Thanks for being patient while I settled my teens back into 'real' school following home schooling and got the family back into some type of routine. It's been so hard to have routine for any length of time this year hasn't it? 2020 has been quite the year so far. I hope you and your family are safe and well.

Today I wanted to blog one of my subscriber tutorial cards so I can pin it onto Pinterest boards. The Prized Peony set is a beautiful NEW Stampin' Up! stamp set and bundle from the 2020 Annual Catalogue.

Here's a look at this beautiful Prized Peony stamp set (Find it HERE in my online store).

I wanted to colour it in a really vintage way, so a bit messy with lots of variation in colour, and some ink splatters. I created a video to show you how I did the colouring.

This type of watercolouring won't be for everyone, but I personally love how it turned out, and like having no dark lines from stamping the image.

Stampin' Up! Saleabration second release sneak peek: Flowering Foils

Hello stampers, happy March.

Saleabration has just one month left to run, but it's about to get a whole lot more exciting with the release of 5 brand new Saleabration choices. Today I can give you a sneak peek of one of the choices, which is the Flowering Foils Designer Paper. This paper is printed with Rose Gold and Silver floral designs on a white background. The cool thing is you can alter the colour of the white background with spongeing or brayering, so it lends itself to some fabulous inky creations.

Here's a couple of cards I have made with this paper. For this first card, I have brayered ink in an ombre pattern with Seaside Spray ink. I have then used the Poppy Moments Bundle to complete my card.

On this second card, I have gone for a more dramatic look and brayered with Blackberry Bliss ink. There are so many possibilities with this paper.

Stampin' Up! Peaceful Poppies Suite

Who doesn't love a poppy flower? We have such a beautiful Poppy themed suite in the Stampin' Up! 2020 January to June mini catalogue. It's called Peaceful Poppies. I just love the colours and the watercolour look of this suite. 

Today's card uses the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper, Peaceful Poppies Elements and the Painted Poppies stamp set from the suite.

The flower and the leaves were already pre-embossed onto watercolour paper as part of the Peaceful Poppies elements. All I had to do was grab an Aquapainter and a Rich Razzleberry reinker and add colour. So quick and easy! The black embossed circle was also part of the Peaceful Poppies elements. I really like the contrast of black with the colours in this suite.

The Designer Series Paper adds a colourful poppy background, so I kept my greeting from the Painted Poppies stamp set to a simple white embossed on black. 

You can find all the Peaceful Poppies suite products HERE in my online store, or using the links at the end of the post.

How to use Stampin' Up! Pigment Sprinkles and four bold bright cards.


I've been playing with Stampin' Up's Pigment Sprinkles over the past few weeks and have come up a video for you as well as four card ideas using the sprinkles.

Pigment sprinkles made their debut in the 2019 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. These sprinkles are watercolour crystals that explode with colour when mixed with water (you will see that happen in the video). The pieces you create make great backgrounds and elements for your projects.

The pigment sprinkles come in a set of 6 colours, which perfectly coordinate with 7 of our Stampin' Up! colours.

The bottles each have a colour label on the top which makes it quick and easy to find your colours.

The dispensers are really great too! When you unscrew the lid, there is a little flip up lid piece (like salt and pepper shakers) to control how much you use (you only need a little bit as you will see in the video.

Find out LOTS more about the sprinkles in this video I have created for you.

 

Here are the four cards I created using the pieces I created in the video, and some other pieces I created playing with the sprinkles. 

This card features a background I have created using the Melon Mambo and Gorgeous Grape pigment sprinkles. I have also Stitched Nested Labels dies, Well Written Dies and Well Said stamp set (all from the 2019 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue). My base card is Gorgeous Grape.

For this second card, I have used a piece I created using Mango Melody and Melon Mambo Pigment Sprinkles. I then embossed the greeting and image from Healing Hugs stamp set onto the piece with White embossing powder. I have also used Stitched Rectangle dies on my card.

In this third card I have used the Bermuda Bay sprinkles on my background. These sprinkles are also an excellent match for Pretty Peacock (which is the colour of my base card and die cut from Merry Christmas dies). The 'birthday' part of my greeting is from the Well Said stamp set.

For my final card, I have die cut letters from a piece I had created using the Pigment Sprinkles. I used the Hand Lettered Prose dies to cut the letters, and Well Said stamp set for the other part of the greeting. The background on this card was made using a watercolour wash and some ink splatters in Mango Melody.

4 Ways to use Delicata Metallic Inks on Your Stampin' Up! projects.

I am totally LOVING that Stampin' Up! are selling the Delicata metallic ink pads in the 2019 Holiday Catalogue. These are the BEST metallic inks on the market in my opinion. 

Some of the featured of these inks are:

  • Great lustre and shine that wont fade over time
  • Acid free and archival
  • Water based
  • Air dries in 10 minutes with no smudging at all once dry

We carry three colours of the full size ink pad and reinker :

Here's what they look like.

Ink

They are perfect for a range of techniques, and I have put together a video showing you how they stamp on a variety of cardstock types, as well as some techniques you can use with them on your Stampin' Up! projects. 

 

Here's a closer look at the cards I have shown in the video (the Seaside Spray reindeer card was featured yesterday in my Heart of Christmas week 4 post, and that includes step by step instructions to make that card).

In the watercolouring section of the video, I featured this Good Morning Magnolia card.

Video on blog. Stampin' Up! Good Morning Magnolia stamp set watercoloured and highlighted with Delicata metallic ink. Card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

Here's a list of the Stampin' Up! products I have used to make this card (I stamped the image in Dove Grey Stazon. Unfortunately Stampin' Up! don't carry that yet, but I love it for watercolouring when I want a lighter edge effect).

  • Stamps: Good Morning Magnolia
  • Cardstock: Shimmery White and Rococo Rose
  • Ink: Petal Pink & Rococo Rose (petals), Smoky Slate (around the image), Mossy Meadow (leaves) and Celestial Copper (centre and highlights)
  • Tools: Aquapainter
  • Embellishments: Pearl Basic Jewels, Rococo Rose Scalloped Linen Ribbon, Linen Thread

The other card I featured was this one, showcasing the stamping and misting using Celestial Copper. The shimmery mist of Celestial Copper on the Early Espresso and Very Vanilla cardstock is much easier to see in the video close ups.

Video on blog. Stampin Up Very Versailles (2019 Annual) and Beauty and Joy (2019 Holiday) with Delicata mettalic ink used two wats.

Here's a list of the Stampin' Up! products I have used on this card (you can see the links for these products at the end of the post):

  • Stamps: Very Versailles and Beauty and Joy (Holiday Catalogue), Butterfly Wishes (greeting; from Annual Catalogue)
  • Ink: Early Espresso, Garden Green and Celestial Copper
  • Cardstock: Very Vanilla and Early Espresso
  • Embellishments: Linen thread
  • Tools / other: Stampin' Spritzer, Isocol (rubbing alcohol)

These stamp pads are so awesome and will really add extra wow to your projects, Grab them in my online store using the links below.
