Stampin' Up! He's All That Bundle, He's the Man Suite and the August Pack of Pretties.

Hello friends.

I'm back with Claire's Pack of Pretties this month - a coordinated collection of my favourite Stampin' Up! papercraft products for a great price! This months kit is all about masculine cards and is only $31 including postage! It is built around the He's the Man Suite in the 2022-23 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue (Note: I have changed the name from 'Claire's Box of Pretties' to 'Claire's Pack of Pretties' to reflect a change in the packaging so I can keep the postage as low as possible).

You can get all the details HERE of exactly what's included in the August pack, which optional add-on products I think are a great match, and how to register and pay. Registrations close August 10th. As this kit is physical product, it's limited to Australian residents, but hobby demonstrators are also welcome to register if you just want a share of the suite at a lower price.

Here are some projects I have made using these products. Stay tuned for lots more during the month of August. Grab the August Pack of Pretties so you can play along!

This masculine thank you card uses the He's the Man DSP (in pack), die cuts (in pack), Rustic Metallic Adhesive Backed Gems (in pack) and a sentiment from Wildlife Wonder stamp set (optional add on). The base cardstock is Sahara sand (in pack), the greeting is stamped in Early Espresso ink (optional add on) and I used Stylish Shapes dies (a great all round versatile die set with 3 different stitched shapes - see links at end of post) to die cut a circle from one of the labels in the die cut sheet included with the DSP.

This masculine birthday card uses the He's the Man DSP (in pack), Rustic Metallic Adhesive Backed Gems (in pack), twine from Bakers Twine Essentials Pack and a sentiment and image from Wildlife Wonder stamp set (optional add on). Base card is Early Espresso (in pack) and stamping is in Early Espresso ink (optional add-on).

This masculine birthday card is for the car lovers and was quick and easy. It uses He's the Man DSP (in pack), Rustic Metallic Adhesive Backed Gems (in pack), and the He's All That bundle (optional add-on). The image from the stamp set is stamped in Early Espresso onto Sahara Sand cardstock (I was out of reinker when I stamped this - fixed now!). The base card for this one is Sahara Sand (in pack).

This masculine birthday card was another quick and easy one. It uses the He's the Man DSP (in pack), He's the man die cuts (in pack), and the Rustic Metallic Adhesive Backed Gems (in pack) . The base cardstock is Sahara Sand (in pack), and I used Stylish Shapes dies (a great all round versatile die set with 3 different stitched shapes - see links at end of post) to die cut the two flag end banners (under the die cut) from the DSP.

This final card is one I made a little while ago in my video tutorial demonstrating how to use masking paper. It uses the Campology stamp set (optional add-on), the He's the Man DSP (in pack), the Rustic Metallic Adhesive Backed Gems (in pack)  and the Bakers Twine Essentials Pack. The base cardstock is Mint Macaron (in pack), with some early Espresso cardstock (in pack) as a mat. I have used Mint Macaron ink pad (optional add-on) to stamp the trees (I added some Garden Green highlights with a marker), and stamped the tent in Black Stazon before watercolouring with Early Espresso ink pad, Crumb Cake ink pad and Water Painters. The video shows you how I used masking paper to position the tent in front of the trees (this card demonstration starts at 2:19 in the video).

Campology Masculine Birthday Card and a Video Tutorial with 6 Ways to Use the NEW Stampin' Up! Masking Paper

Hello stamping friends.

One of the new products included in the 2022 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue was masking paper. For those not familiar with masking paper, it does as the name suggests - masks off areas of your project where you don't want ink to go. You can do this with other things as well, but the benefit of this specialised masking paper is that it is super thin plus adhesive and it doesn't leave as much of a halo around the edge. It's also reusable, and really reasonably priced. It is $12.25AUD for 12 5x7" sheets. Find the masking paper on page 149 of the Annual catalogue, or HERE in my online store.

I've put together a video showing 6 different techniques to use the masking paper, and included lots of tips along the way. The video features 5 cards, and I will share one of them here first. You can see how I did the stamping for this project (and the other 4 cards) in the video which is included below. 

As I wanted the tent to appear in front of the trees in this masculine birthday card, I stamped the tent first and then masked it off before I stamped the trees. I love this Campology stamp set and haven't used it nearly enough, so I am grateful it carried over to the new catalogue. To finish my card off, I have used some of the DSP and a die-cut from He's the Man Specialty DSP, along with some linen thread and Rustic Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots.

Stampin' Up! For the Record birthday card for music lovers!

Hello there. Today I have a treat for anyone who loves music. It's a birthday card I made for my eldest son, who has this year started working in live sound production. Technically he doesn't own a lot of records, but this set is perfect for music lovers and any collector of old records!

The set I have used is For the Record, from the Stampin' Up! January to June Mini Catalogue.

I have used a piece of the Tahitian Tide DSP for the background paper, and combined it with Real Red, Basic Black and Basic White.

Stampin Up Tahitian Tide Colour / Color ComboI embossed the actual record in black embossing powder so it's nice and shiny. I cut it out using the largest circle in the Layering Circle Dies. The red striped piece is a stamp from the set, stamped in Real Red onto Basic White. The black and white piece is a piece of patterned paper from the new Perfectly Penciled  Designer Series Paper. The quotes are stamped straight from the stamp set in Tahitian Tide, Stazon Black and Real Red. I have finished off with some Tahitian Tide InColor dots which are coming on May 3rd!

Here's a closer look at the For The Record stamp set. This set won't be carrying over to the new 2022 Annual Catalogue, so if you like it, grab it before the January to June mini catalogue ends in June. You can find this set HERE in my online store.

Here's a couple more samples using this set (these samples are by the Stampin' Up! artists).

Stampin' Up! Waves of Inspiration Masculine Birthday Card

Hello paper crafters! 

Today I have a masculine birthday card for you featuring the Waves of Inspiration bundle which will be in the 2022-23 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue which starts on May 3rd (if you don't have a copy you can request one HERE). This bundle was released early, and it also had some coordinating papers, foil sheets and embellishments as part of the Waves of the Ocean suite / promotion. Only the bundle will be carrying on after May 2nd (see below for more details on the others). I think this suite is perfect for masculine cards.

Stampin Up Waves of Inspiration Masculine Birthday card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator, Australia

This was a pretty simple card to make. Here are the steps:

  1. I started with a top folding base card of Crumb Cake.
  2. Next I have a layer of the DSP, and then I have tied two strands of Crumb Cake twine (from the basics twine pack) around the top.
  3. I stamped the Pelican image in Soft Suede and then cut that out with one of the Rectangle Stitched Dies. I attached that (with Dimensionals) over a small strip of Crumb Cake cardstock which was 1.8 x 10.5cm.
  4. I stamped the Happy Birthday greeting from the stamp set, and cut into thin strips which I attached over the image.
  5. Finally I added 3 of the Rhinestone Waves Basic Jewells.

I also made this card using one of the three different coloured foil sheets on the wave die-cut. I really like the sentiments and font in this stamp set.
