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.

Stampin' Up! Tea Together Stamp Set and coordinating Tea Time Dies

Hello stamping friends.

These cards are from a couple of months ago, but I just realised I hadn't blogged them. They are some of the favourite cards I made this year and my Mother and Mother in Law loved them for their Mothers Day cards. They feature the Tea Together stamp set and coordinating Tea Time dies (see the product links at the end of the post).

Stampin Up Tea Together stamp set with Country Lane Embossing Folder from the 2019 Annual Catalogue. Mothers Day card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

They both feature the Country Floral 3D embossing folder. I brayered Sahara Sand ink onto the debossed side of the folder, before I added the Shimmery White die cut cardstock and embossed. This gives you the effect shown - I was going for an antique vase effect.

I then die stamped and die cut the flowers before I watercoloured them with Blushing Bride, Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive ink.

Stampin' Up! Mothers Day card with new 2018 Love What You Do and Making a Difference Stamp Sets

Hello. I've been working on Mother's Day cards this week. Sometimes I don't have exactly the right sentiment, but with a couple of the new 2018 Stampin' Up! stamp sets available as part of the Share What You Love bundle, I was able to come up with the perfect sentiment for the card for my Mum. 

Stampin Up Share What You Love mothers day card 2018. Claire Daly Melbourne Australia.

I really am lucky to have a Mum like I have. She has taught me strength, resilience, the importance of a close, loyal family and much more. I am so grateful for my Mum.

This is what I started with before I played around with the greeting.

Stampin Up Share What You Love mothers day card 2018. Claire Daly Melbourne Australia.

I have used the stamps from the Love What You Do stamp set which is available for customers to buy this month in the three different Share What You Love Bundles.

149804O1

I have used Powder Pink for my card base and for the flowers, Pear Pizazz for the wreath, and Mint Macaron for the greeting. The cute little pearls are part of the embellishments included in Bundles 1 and 2, the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls.

Colour MD card

Measurements: My base card is 10.5cm square, and the Whisper White layer is 10 cm square.

Tip: To get the circle shape to stamp the wreath around, I used a pencil to draw inside the largest of my layering circle Framelits.

 

For my adapted version of this card, I added in some elements from the new 2018 Making a Difference Stampin' Up! stamp set. 

149812O11

Stampin Up Share What You Love mothers day card 2018. Claire Daly Melbourne Australia.

The measurements and colours are exactly the same. I have used the floral image from the Making a Difference Stamp Set instead. For the greeting, I chopped up the bits I wanted to use, and then arranged them around the word 'Mum' which I stamped using the alphabet stamps in the set (LOVING the script font in this set). The letters are easy to line up as they are Photopolymer (even for someone with dodgy eyes like me). The little wood heart is an embellishment from the 2017 Annual Catalogue (Hearts and Stars Elements).

The Share What You Love exclusive May bundles are really pretty. Stampin' Up! have included free product gifts in each bundle, and I am also giving away 12 FREE Tutorials, and a 53 swatch colour sampler to anyone who buys any of the 3 bundles from me in May.

Learn more about the bundles and the free products included HERE.

Claire
