Stampin' Up! Art With Heart Team January Blog Hop - Occasions Catalogue Inspiration

Jan hop

Hello everyone. I'm getting back into regular blogging for the year now that the school holidays are drawing to a close. It's lovey to be back!

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects using product from the Occasions Catalogue. The Occasions Catalogue is current now until June 3rd. Be sure to request your copy of the catalogue today (along with the Sale-a-bration brochure).

Did you know that Sale-a-bration is also a great time to join our fabulous team with the great joining specials on. Ask anyone on the blog hop if you’d like more details. 

Today I have used the All Geared Up product suite, which is a fabulous suite for the males in our life that like cars, or tinkering with cars. This would even be great for the young males in our lives who are obsessed with their matchbox car collections.

I hve embossed the car in black embossing powder so it stands out more and has a shiny finish. I love the grease stain stamps and little tool embellishments in this suite!

5 Cards for males with the retiring True Gentleman Product Suite

Another of my much loved product suites in the 2018 Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalogue, has been the True Gentleman suite of products. I really liked the deep rich masculine colours in the Designer Series Paper (and coordinating cardstock pack), the fabulous textured  Night of Navy Corduroy Ribbon, and the True Gentleman wooden buttons (the buttons are the only one of these consumable products carrying over to the new catalogue).

The coordinating bundle to this stamp set is the Truly Tailored Bundle. While the stamp set ISN'T Carrying over, the Tailored Tag Punch is, and there is a lovely new stamp set that it coordinates with which I will show you very soon. Here is the Truly Tailored Bundle which is available while stocks last until May 31st. Check out the links at the end of the post to grab these products before they retire.

I really enjoyed creating with this suite of products. Here are five of the cards I made with it.

Stampin' Up! Heartland Birthday and Thinking of You cards.

I love this gorgeous image in the Heartland stamp set. In fact as a country girl at heart (I was born in the wheatbelt of Western Australia and lived on farms until my late teens), this whole stamp set really jumped out at me in the 2017/18 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue.

Stampin Up Heartland Thinking of You and male  birthday card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

It was the perfect image for my father in laws birthday card, and I also made a ''thinking of you' card to send to my Mum, as I think this image will really appeal to her as well.

For my Mum's card, I also wanted to try out my new Marbled Background stamp (stamped in Emerald Envy onto an Emerald Envy layer on a Dapper Denim card base). I watercoloured the image (stamped onto a piece of Shimmery White cut from the Stitched Shapes framelits) using the Stampin' Up! watercolour pencils.

To finish my card, I added a few simple embellishments: a leaf die cut from Eclectic Layers thinlits that I had lying around in my 'bits and pieces' bowl, some of the Dapper Denim washi tape from the Basic 3 Washi Tape and one of the Touches of Nature wooden elements.

For the birthday card I embossed the Emerald Envy layer using the Polka Dot basics embossing folder (note that the image in the catalogue is incorrect for this folder, the dots are actually further spaced as shown here).  The image was coloured the same, but stamped onto one of the circle Stitched Shapes Thinlits. For my embellishments I have added some Burlap Trim and Linen Thread, with some gold metallic shapes. I have used the Happy Birthday greeting from Happy Birthday gorgeous which is a great fit for the Pretty Label punch.

Here's a closer look at the Heartland stamp set (available in wood mount or clear mount red rubber) and the Basics Washi Tape #3 pack. I find this a great combo set because it has 5 different blues to coordinate with all your projects! We also have a green set of 5, pink set of 5 and black and white themed set.

If you are a country girl like me, or enjoy watercolouring, Heartland is a great stamp set for you! 

See you back here tomorrow with a Holiday Catalogue sneak peek.

Stampin' Up! Moroccan Designer Series Paper for a masculine Thinking of You handmade card.

Hello stampers. Happy Monday.

I have to tell you Emerald Envy has TOTALLY taken me by surprise and crept in to firmly cement itself as one of my few favourite Stampin' Up! colours at the moment. I'm also a big fan of Early Espresso, which is one of the reasons I am loving the Moroccan Designer Series Paper from the Stampin' Up! 2016 Annual Catalogue. 

Stampin Up Moroccan Nights stamp set and Moroccan DSP. Masculine thinking of you card by Claire Daly Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

I found the images in the stamp set perfect for the masculine card I was making. I particularly love the border stamp and how it echoes the patterns on this piece of DSP.

For my masculine embellishments, I have used our Burlap Trim and Linen Thread together, and then used a Bronze Sharpie to colour some of the White Perfect Accents - this gives a great copper embellishment and copper is so on trend right now!

Collage Stamping Technique and ATC Swap using Stampin' Up! In This World Stamp Set

One of the great things we do on my Art With Heart Stampin' Up! team Facebook group is a monthly ATC stamping technique share. It's great for our hobby and business demos to get involved in and really fun to share with team members right across Australia when we get our swap ATCs back in the mail.

Last month's technique was collage stamping, and the In This World stamp set from the 2016 Annual Catalogue was perfect for the technique. I also decided to make a card to go with the ATC.

My Stampin' Up! colours are Crumb Cake, Mint Macaron, Soft Suede, Early Espresso and I have also added some Copper Embossing (the butterfly on the ATC, and ink splotches on the card). It's super easy to create this effect with just layers of stamping on a Very Vanilla background.

I really love the vintage look of the stamps in this set. I think this set would be great for male cards as well.

Here's a closer look at the In This World stamp set. Isn't it fabulous? I'll definitely be looking at other ways to use this vintage / antique inspired stamp set.
