Quick and Easy Stampin' Up! Abstract Beauty Cards

If you are a fan of quick and easy cards, the Stampin' Up! Abstract Beauty products I am going to show you today will be just the thing for you. It is so quick and easy to make this bright bunch of cards using three main products, and your choice of sentiment stamp set.

Next up you will need the Abstract Beauty Ephemera Pack for $11.25. This has a bunch of awesome cardstock and vellum die cuts you can use to embellish your cards (you get 2 of each of the ones shown here). Great price too.

Finally there is the coordinating Abstract Beauty DSP and this time it's a new size - 6" x 4". The patterns and colours coordinate perfectly with the other products, and you get 48 6x4" double sided sheets. There's also some gold foiling in there.

There are also some great more neutral designs in this pack which can be used for other projects, like this wedding card I made for my niece and her new husband.

Stampin' Up! Daffodil Daydream Mothers Day Cards + how to put the Daffodil Dies Together

Hi friends. Today I am back with 2 more Daffodil cards, both Mothers Day cards using the gorgeous Daffodil Daydream bundle again. I also have some pictures which show you how to put the Daffodil Dies together.

Here's my first card.

Stampin Up Daffodil Daydream Mothers Day card and how to put the daffodil dies together. Card by Claire daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator, Melbourne Australia.

It's very simple because the die-cut daffodil does all the work. There are 3 different daffodils that can be made up with the Daffodil Dies. Here are the diagrams showing how you make up each one. You can vary up the colours to whites and pinks too.

For the rest of the card, I have used the Saleabration Daffodil Afternoon DSP (only available as a FREE pick with a $90 order up until March 16th, so don't miss out!) and the gorgeous soft white frayed ribbon. My greeting is from Celebrating You stamp set, and I have punched the ends of the label using the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch.

My base card is Petal Pink and I have a popped a very thin mat of Flirty Flamingo cardstock around the black patterned layer. to add a pop of colour. The greeting is from the Daffodil Daydream stamp set, and this time I have used the Double Oval punch. I've also popped some of our gorgeous Brass Butterflies on this card as an embellishment.

Hydrangea Haven Bundle / Hydrangea Hill Suite 2021 Mother's Day Card

Hello crafty people :)

Today I have a Mother's Day card for you using the Hydrangea Hill Suite from the 2021 Stampin' Up! January to June Mini Catalogue. This is a beautiful suite, and one I have found to be very popular with my customers. 

Find the Hydrangea Hill Suite HERE in my online store.

Stampin Up Hydrangea Haven 2021 Mothers Day Card by Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

The star of the show with this card is the Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper (DSP). This paper will only be around for another couple of months, and it's such a great coordinating item for the bundle (the bundle is carrying over to the new 2021 Annual Catalogue). The floral spray on this card is just fussy cut from the DSP. I have also used the new Fresh Freesia InColor cardstock as the base card and the die cut (cut from the Ornate Layers Dies). One of the shades of the Pastel Pearl embellishments from this suite, perfectly coordinate with Fresh Freesia, so I have added these to the card too. I really liked this greeting in the Hydrangea Haven stamp set for Mother's Day. It sums up Mothers everywhere don't you think?

Here's a closer look at the Hydrangea Haven bundle (carrying over) and the Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper (not carrying over beyond June 30th). The Pastel Pearls in the suite are carrying over, as is the Hydrangea Hill Mercury Acetate. The Gorgeous Grape ribbon will be retiring with the paper on June 30th.

Sponged embossing card making technique on a 2021 Mothers day card.

Hello friends. Today I have a 2021 Mothers day card for you. A little early maybe, but I wanted to play with the Meadow Moments embossing folders and use the sponged embossing papercraft and card making technique. The soft colours I wanted to use were perfect for a Mothers Day card. 

Here's how my card turned out.

Meadow Moments sponged embossing folder 2021 Mothers Day Card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

I started with embossing a piece of Basic White cardstock with one one of the two embossing folders in the Meadow Moments embossing folder pack. Using sponge daubers, I lightly sponged the raised bits. I used the dauber and Blushing Bride ink pad for the flowers, Mint Macaron for the butterflies and Soft Sea Foam for the stems and leaves. I also lightly sponged the white areas in between with Soft Sea Foam.

Next steps were to add a thin strip of Mint Macaron cardstock to the left side of this strip, and to adhere it to a Blushing Bride card base which had been embossed with the subtles 3D embossing folder. To finish my card off I embossed the Happy Mothers Day sentiment from the Strong Women stamp set in white embossing powder onto Mint Macaron cardstock. I cut the butterfly embellishment using the Butterfly Duo Punch, and a piece of Blushing Bride cardstock which I had also embossed with the Subtle 3D folder.

Here's another look at my colour combination for this one.
