Your Creative Connection 109: Something Old, Something New

600 pixels

Welcome back to another showcase with the global Your Creative Connection team. Today our theme is 'Something Old, Something New', which is perfect timing with the release last week of the NEW 2020/21 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. For my NEW, I have chosen two of the new Stampin' Up! 2020-22 In Colors as well as the new Flowers for Every Season Memories and More Card Pack. For my OLD, I have chosen  the Stitched So Sweetly dies which first featured in the 2020 January to June mini catalogue.

I really like the crisp fresh colour combination I have used today which is three of the new 2020-22 In Colors: Misty Moonlight, Just Jade, Bumble Bee and Whisper White. My base card is Misty Moonlight, and there is a Just Jade layer in there too. The Bumble Bee colour comes from one of the elements included in the Memories and More Card Pack.

The Flowers for Every Season DSP and Flowers for Every Season Memories and More Card Pack (links at the bottom of the post) are really great because they coordinate with ALL five of the new 2020-22 InColors. You will find great versatility with these two products. The cardstock weight flower stickers are included in the Memories and More Card Pack, and they coordinate really well with all the colours. The Stitched So Sweetly dies are also a really versatile product because there are so many ways you can layer them. Check out all the products below my signature in the links. The greeting I have used is from the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set, which is also linked below.

Simple Birthday Card using Stampin' Up! Flowers for Every Season Memories and More Card Pack

Hello friends, I hope you are enjoying the start of a long weekend (well it is here in Australia :) )

It's been a super busy week in Stampin' Up! with the launch of both the 2020 Annual Catalogue, and the new updated version of the Stampin' Up!  online store (I love the crisp clean new look and fabulous graphics). 

Today I have a quick and easy birthday card for you, created using the Flowers for Every Season Memories and More card pack (page 155 in the paper catalogue, or HERE in the online store).

Quick and Easy Flowers for Every Season 2020 Stampin Up cards by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

Here's what I love about this card pack:

  • It's really reasonably priced (just $19.25) and you get stacks to work with including cards using you can use as layers on cardfronts or in pocket scrapbooking, as well as heavy weight stickers (such as the gorgeous ombre 'happy' word I have used here.
  • It has a variety of cards so that the pack coordinates with the entire 2020-22 new Stampin' Up! Incolors. I have used Misty Moonlight and Magenta Madness cardstock, but you can also get a pack of coordinating Memories and More Cards which has 10 cards and envelopes (2 of each new InColour).The great thing about these coordinating cards (shown below) is that they are perfectly sized, so you just need to adhere a large card to the cardfront, or a small card fits inside the preprinted dotted border on the card. How simple is that?

Here's a look at the Flowers for Every Season Card Pack and coordinating Flowers For Every Season Memories and More Cards and Envelopes.

It's really easy to just add a greeting and some quick embellishments and you are done.

New Stampin' Up! 2020 In Colours: Introducing Bumblebee

Hello papercrafters. 

This week we are going to start looking at the 2020-22 New Incolours. I'm going to introduce them in alphabetical order, starting today with Bumblebee. 

Bumblebee is a warm toned yellow, slightly brighter and a little less intense in colour than Crushed Curry. It has an ornage undertone when compared to Daffodil Delight, and is similarly toned to So Saffron.

Here's a look at Bumblebee on a card. This is one of the Flowers For Every Season Memories and More cards, which come in a moxed pack of the 5 new In Colours. I have also used a card and greeting from the Flowers for Every Season Memories and More Card Pack.

There are lots of colours which will combine well with Bumblebee. This floral card used all of the other 2020 new In Colours, and also Poppy Parade. I personally particularly like it with Just Jade and Misty Moonlight.

More tropical inspiration: Stampin' Up! Tropical Oasis Product Suite

Hello stampers. Time for some more inspiration using the Tropical Suite from the Stampin' Up! 2020 January to June mini catalogue.

I started with this card using lots of pieces of the suite. I really love the palm tree image, it evokes happy emotions in me. I als0 love the look and texture of the Coastal Weave embossing folder and the Braided Burlap Trim in this Suite. Oh and the trinkets too!!

The 'DSP' in this one, is actually one of the Memories and More cards cut down to size. The palm trees are stamped in Soft Sea Foam and Coastal Cabana, and the palm trees on the base card are stamped in Crumb Cake (stamped off once). The pineapple is stamped in Soft Suede.

I also made some quick and easy cards using the Tropical Oasis Memories and More card pack, and the Magnolia Lane Large Speciality Memories and More cards and envelopes. I have just used one of the smaller cards on each card, and embellished with some die cut leaves and a trinket. The greeting is cut out using the smallest oval in the Stitched Shapes dies.

Stampin' Up! Tropical Oasis Suite Guitar Card

Hello stampers.

This week I have been playing with the Stampin' Up! Tropical Oasis Suite from the 2020 January to June mini catalogue. I love this suite so much! This is one of the suites where I ended up purchasing literally everything in the suite. The Coastal Weave embossing folder is gorgeous, and I love the colours in the DSP and Memories and More card pack. Check out the Tropical Oasis Suite in my Stampin' Up! online store.

You will be seeing a few cards made with this product suite on my blog this week, so let's get started. For today's card, I have used the Timeless Tropical stamp set for the background stamping and greeting, and one on the Memories and More cards.

You will also spot the Coastal Weave embossing folder and one of the Tropical Oasis trinkets (how cute are those little guitars? there are 3 other cute tropical charm designs too). You can view or purchase any of the products I have used today, using the links at the end of the post.
