Three quick and easy Stampin' Up! cards using Heart & Home Memories and More Cards and Envelopes.

Hello stamping friends.  Are you ready for some quick and easy Stampin' Up! cards?

I find one of the best ways to make quick cards, is by using the Memories and More Cards and Envelopes, and Memories and More Card Packs. Today I have three quick cards for you using these products from the Heart and Home Suite in the Stampin' Up! 2022 January to June Mini Catalogue.

Three quick and easy 2022 Stampin Up Heart and Home cards using Memories and More. Cards by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! demonstrator, Melbourne, Australia.

The cards are already pre-printed and come in the pack with coordinating envelopes. There are two sizes in this pack: gift cards and full sized cards. The coordinating Heart and Home Memories and More Card Pack has journaling cards (in two sizes) and cardstock weight stickers which can be used for both scrapbooking and cardmaking. I have used these cards and stickers, along with other elements from the Heart and Home suite (doilies and denim ribbon) to make these cards. I love how they turned out and they were so quick and easy. These are the two gift cards:

Quick and Easy Stampin' Up! Hand Penned Cards

I love being able to whip up quick and easy handmade cards. The Stampin' Up! Hand Penned Memories and More cards make creating a breeze as you can buy the pre-printed cards and envelopes (which are SO pretty), and then you have a range of perfectly sized cards you can play around with for elements on the card front.

Here are two cards I made quickly and easily using these products. 

Stampin Up Hand Penned Quick and Easy Cards by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

For my first card, I just trimmed down one of the 6x4" cards and added a Daffodil Delight mat either side. The sentiment is from Hand-Penned stamp set and I have used the Double Oval Punch with the sentiment. The embellishments I have shown on this one are the Genial Gems which coordinate with this suite perfectly (links at end of post to view products I have used).

Stampin Up Hand Penned Quick and Easy Cards by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

For this one, I just added a Polished Pink Mat to the 3x4" card from the Hand-Penned Memories and More pack, and then cut one of the die-cuts from the Penned Flower Dies in half and adhered to the top and bottom before adhering it to the pre-printed card. My greeting is from Best Year sentiment set and I have used the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch on the label. It would even be beautiful without the die cut as the prints in this suite are so beautiful.

Stampin' Up! Hand Penned Suite and Encircled in Beauty Dies

Hello friends.

Today I wanted to share a card that was quick and easy to create, but which I love because it uses 3 of my favourite things from the new Annual Catalogue.

Stampin Up 2021 thank you card using Hand-Penned Petals bundle and Encircled in Beauty Dies. Card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Melbourne Australia.

The 3 favourite items I have used on this card (you can check them out in the links at the end of the post) are: 

  • The Hand-Penned Petals Suite (but you already knew that from previous posts, right?)
  • The gorgeous Encircled in Beauty Dies. I love how circle dies break up the straight lines in cards.
  • The Hand-Penned Memories and More Cards and Envelopes. I LOVE these! They are pre-printed and ready to go, plus incredible value. Just $17.50 for 20 cards and coordinating patterned envelopes. They make a perfect card base for stamped cards, or cards made using the elements in the Hand-Penned Memories and More card pack.

Stampin Up 2021 thank you card using Hand-Penned Petals bundle and Encircled in Beauty Dies. Card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Melbourne Australia

The secons layer of the card is a strip of the Hand-Penned DSP (5cm wide x 13.5cm) with a banner end cut in one end. The largest Encircled in Beauty die is a great size to use with this image. I stamped the image in Basic Gray, and over-stamped the flower using Pale Papaya. For the leaves, I used my Mint Macaron Stampin' Blends to colour them. This picks up the colours in the Hand-Penned DSP I have used as the first layer. To finish my card off, I have used some of the Genial Gems from the Hand-Penned Suite.

Dragonfly Punch Birthday Card

Hello friends. Today I have a handmade birthday card for you, featuring a dragonfly. This card is made with the Stampin Up Dragonflies Punch, the coordinating Dragonfly Garden stamp set, and the Dandy Garden Designer Series Paper

I love dragonflies. My Mum gave my a crystal and wire one many years ago which I treasure. I have been doing some research about Dragonfly symbolism and found this at whatismyspriritanimal.com

"As a Spirit Animal, Dragonfly moves into our life often when we are taking things too seriously and losing our joy. This teacher restores lightness to our spiritual wings and mental processes. This animal spirit guide’s reminder is simple: find the positive no matter how dark it seems.

Dragonfly is tied intimately to your emotional state. It asks: what feelings are you having that you’re hiding? What feelings are self-created illusions? What feelings do you need to explore more deeply. Give yourself to the Dragonfly’s transformative power and sense of peace"

The dragonfly has beautiful symbolism don't you think?

Now onto my card. The primary colour on my card is Bumblebee, a really bright positive colour.

Stampin Up Dragonfly Gardens Bundle / Dragonflies Punch birthday card.

 

I have started my card with one of the pre-printed Dandy Garden Memories and More Cards & Envelopes. These are beautiful, come in a set of 20 cards and envelopes, and the envelopes have printed patterned liners which coordinate with the cards. They are a great size too (the folded card size is 10.8 x 15.9cm). The printing on the card is Bumblebee on white.

Dandy Garden Notecards - Available in my online Stampin Up store

I added a frame that I die cut from the Ornate Layers Dies (also in Bumblebee), and then added a piece of Bumblebee patterned paper from the Dandy Garden DSP in the centre of the frame (the size to cut is 5.5 x 9.0cm).

Dandy Garden Designer Series paper (DSP) Availalable in my Online Stampin Up Store

For the Dragonfly, I have created three layers:

  1. The base layer is a dragonfly stamp from the Dragonfly Gardens stamp set, stamped in Night of Navy ink onto Misty Moonlight cardstock, and then cut out with the Dragonflies Punch. This one is adhered directl to the card.
  2. The second layer is cut directly from the Dandy Garden DSP using the Dragonflies punch. Stampin' Up! is great with coordination. This one is adhered using Mini Dimensionals.
  3. The top layer is a double thread bow of the gold cord trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack. I didn't plan to add this, but I had it left over from another project and it just worked. The bow is adhered with a glue dot.

The Dragonfly Garden stamp set has four great sentiments, but I wanted this for a handmade birthday card, so I have used  a stamp from the Best Year stamp set. I have stamped in Night of Navy onto white and just used my Stampin' Up! Paper Trimmer to cut out the sentiment. Finally I have added two Gilded Gems near my sentiment.

Stampin' Up! 12x12 Travel Scrapbook Layout using World of Good Product Suite

Hello there.

Something completely different for you today, a scrapbook page! I am beginning to scrapbook my trip my few days in Rome before the Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip last year and wanted a 12x12 cover page. I'll probably do most of the pages with pocket scrapbooking and the World of Good Memories and More card pack, but I like to do some 12x12 pages in there too, as a cover and some special photos.

World of Good Stampin Up 12x12 Travel Scrapbooking Page by Claire Daly, Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

As I wanted to print certain parts of the photo and get the full height if the beautiful Trevi fountain in, I cropped my photo in Photoshop, and then printed at home. I have a Canon Pixma A4 printer (mine is a TS8160) and I use genuine Canon Photo Paper (I love the Canon Photo Paper Plus Semi  Gloss) and genuine Canon inks, and I am really happy with the printing results I get. Very handy too as Melbourne (Australia) where I live just went into another 6 week lockdown to get the second wave of this horrible Covid-19 Virus under control.

12x12 Travel Scrapbook page usine Stampin Up World of Good product suite and Very Versailles stamp set. By Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

The World of Good product suite is PERFECT for travel scrapbooking, and especially ancient Rome as it has all the beautiful rich earthy colours of ancient ruins and old buildings.

World of Good Product Suite Stampin Up. Perfect for travel and masculine themed projects. Availiable now in my online store in Australia. Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

With our new adhesive foam sheets, and Playful Alphabet dies (links at end of post), it's easy to make colour coordinated dimensional letters for your scrapbook titles. The letters are about 3/4" high, which is a great size. You just peel the backing paper off one side of the adhesive foam, attach a strip of whatever colour you are using (I used the Brass foil sheets) and cut the alphabet like normal in your die cutting machine. They cut like butter. Just peel the backing sheet off the other side and adhere to your page. Easy! The word 'adventure' is from the Sweet Silhouettes dies.

Playful Alphabet dies Stampin Up plus foam sheet = make your own dimensional alphabet. Buy online via my Australian online store.

I've added some tone on tone stamping to the base Crumb Cake 12x12 cardstock (from the neutrals 12x12 pack) using one of my very favourite vintage sets, Very Versailles. I have also popped on some of the Artistry Blooms sequins, which include a variety of colours. I found the Calypso Coral a great match for this product suite.

12x12 Travel Scrapbook page usine Stampin Up World of Good product suite and Very Versailles stamp set. By Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

To balance the page I included a quote (die cut with the layering circle dies) from the World of Good Memories and More cards. I added in some more sequins, a cardstock sticker from the same card pack and a strip of coordinating DSP. As this was a cover page, it didnt need much journalling. I just added the dates and a note that it was before the 2019 Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip.
