Stampin' Up! Whiskey Business coloured with Stampin' Blends, plus a trick to give the liquid dimension

Hello stampers. Today I have a masculine card for you, featuring Whiskey Business stamp set from the 2020 Stampin' Up! Catalogue.

First, a little lockdown 2.o update. Hope you are staying safe and well. Today is 3 weeks into our scheduled 6 week  second lockdown in Melbourne. The spike in Covid-19 numbers has been scary  Much higher numbers than the first wave, and aged care homes are particularly vulnerable which is so sad to watch. We pray for those people and the healthcare workers, leaders, responders, plus those impacted health wise or economically. Otherwsie all we can do is play our part and be super careful and do all the right things. I feel this second lockdown is harder for some reasons, but we also seem to be managing better at home. We are trying to stay happy and positive and brighten others peoples days when we get the chance. Some days are harder than others, but I find distancing myself a bit from the media sensationalism, and taking more time for self care, has helped me this time. Oh and scrapbooking and cardmaking of course!

Here's my Whiskey Business card. Whiskey seems to be pretty popular among our male family and friends, so I needed this stamp set. My base card is Cinnamon Cider, and the front is embossed using the Tasteful Texture 3D embossing folder. The patterned paper is from the In Good Taste Designer Series paper pack. This pack has such great neutral textures.

I've coloured my image in Stampin' Blends. I have used Smoky Slate and a tiny bit of Seaside Spray on the decanter, Smoky Slate on the glass, and Cinnamon Cider with a bit of Daffodil Delight blended in for the whiskey. I've also used Daffodil Delight on the lemon twist. 

Tip: to get a realistic look of liquid with some dimension, use a Fine Tip Glue pen after the Stampin' Blends have dried. I learned this tip from the lovely Linda Bauwin on an Incentive Trip many years ago when she was demonstrating colouring wine in glasses.

To finish my card off, I have adhered the decanter and glass to a circle die cut from the Stitched Shapes dies. The glass is adhered with Dimensionals, as is the Stitched Shape and the DSP (I adhered the DSP to a layer of cardstock to give it some more weight). Finally I have added some Linen Thread, and an embossed greeting from Happiest of Birthdays stamp set.

Here's a closer look at the Whisky Business stamp set.

Even though there are some great sentiments in this set, I wanted a birthday sentiment. This new Happiest of Birthdays from the 2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue has been really popular.  It's certainly one I know I will be getting lots of use from.

Your Creative Connection 110: Hey Dude

600 pixels

Hey crafty people! It's time for another global Your Creative Connection Showcase #YCC110. This month our theme is Hey Dude, as in masculine cards. This was perfect timing for me, as one of my son's needed a birthday card for a mate this week. He likes to fish and also hang out at the river, so I wanted to incorporate water somehow. This new DSP (the blue waves one) is from Whale of a Time Designer Series Paper (all the links for products I have used today are at the end of the post), and was perfect to represent the ocean.

Stampin Up A Good Man and Many Mates stamp set. 2020 card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

I used one of the 4 patterns of the Sahara Sand DSP from the new 6x6" Neutrals paper pack as the sand. The stamped image is from A Good Man stamp set which I'm so glad has carried over to this years 2020 Annual Catalogue, because it's a favourite of mine to watercolour. I just picked up the colours from the DSP (Pacific Point and Sahara Sand) and added in Crumb Cake for some watercolouring, and Early Espresso for the greeting.

Stampin Up A Good Man and Many Mates stamp set. 2020 card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

I've used a new greeting set on this card. It's called Many Mates, and I love it! It's new in this year's 2020 Annual Catalogue and has sentiments for the outside and inside of cards, plus great modern fonts. It's perfect for a wide variety of cards. I used the 'I'm glad your were born' sentiment inside the card as it seemed like the kind of random thing teen boys might jokingly say to each other.

New Stampin' Up! 2020 In Colours: Introducing Cinnamon Cider

Hello there papercrafters. Today we are looking at the second (alphabetically) new Stampin' Up! 2020 In Colour, and it's Cinnamon Cider.

Cinnamon Cider has more of an orange undertone to our other neutral colours, and tones well with warm colours and Early Espresso.

Stampin Up Cinnamon Cider 2020 In Colour / ColorEven though the colour has cider in the name, we are entering winter here in Australia and we have had several sub zero morning temperatures here where I live. So for me,  this colour makes me think of warm cinnamon cocoa and being cosy if front of a warm fire. Both of those things make me feel happy and comforted right now, so I have a real emotional connection to this colour.

At first I struggled to create with this colour, then in the end this colour was the one I made the most cards with. I will just show you one basic card today, but I have some great samples to share in the coming weeks.

Today's card is a basic masculine birthday card featuring one of the Cinnamon Cider 6x6" paper stack designs (we have 4 new designs this year which are gorgeous to create with. 

Stampin Up 2020 Cinnamon Cider In Colour / Color masculine birthday card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Deonstrator Melbourne Australia

I have layered the Stitched So Sweetly dies in Early Espresso and Very Vanilla. You can also add a small mat of a contrasting colour in between (the perfect size to cut this rectangle is 6.5 x 3.5cm) which I have done with Seaside Spray. The word 'Happy' in my gretting is one of the cardstock stickers which come in the Flowers for Every Season Memories and More Card Pack. It is in Misty Moonlight (another of the new In Colours, but as you will see later in the week, this tones really well with Seaside Spray. The word birthday is from the Well Said stamp set and is stamped in Early Espresso. A couple of the gold Gilded Gem embellishments finish this card off nicely.

Stampin' Up! Argyle Golf Fathers Day Card using the Country Club Suite

Hello stampers,

Today I have a golf themed Fathers Day card for you. This card feautres Stampin' Up! products from the golf-themed Country Club Suite, which debuted in the 2020 January to June Mini Catalogue.

Golf themed  fathers day card 2020 using Country Club suite. By Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

This Country Club Suite suite is perfect for the males in your life, especially golfers! The suite comprises a 12x12 Designer Series Paper Pack, a stamp set and coordinating dies, coordinating twine, some very cute wood golf elements, and an Argyle 3D embossing folder. Unfotunately these products (with the exception of the Argyle 3D embossing folder) are now retiring, which means they are only available until June 2nd (or earlier if sold out). View the Country Club suite HERE in my Online Store to check if there are any you want before they sell out.

For this card, I have used the inked embossing technique to create a two tone effect on the embossing folder (just brayer ink on the debossed side of the folder before you place the cardstock in and put it through your embossing machine. I used Night of Navy ink and Seaside Spray cardstock for this one.

How cute are the embellishments in this suite? The wood veneer coordinates with the look of the suite perfectly, and they just all come together really well with the stamp set and dies.
