Stampin' Up! Potted Geraniums Birthday Card

Geraniums are one of those plants that evoke happy feelings and memories for me, so when I saw the Potted Geraniums bundle in the 2022 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue, it was straight into my cart! Geraniums were my Dad's favourite flower (especially white ones) and they also remind me of Spring, and the gorgeous flowering balconies in Barcelona and Paris.

Here's my first card with this bundle.

I have started with a Basic Gray base, and used my blending brush to add a little Pool Party to the Basic White card front. There's so many good things to love about this bundle! For starters you can either stamp or die cut the flowers and both give you a lovely two toned effect, which Geraniums are known for. I have used Melon Mambo and Polished Pink for the flowers, Garden Green for the leaves (stamped off for the more solid layer), and Basic Gray for the pot (I love grey pots!).

Secondly, I love the two step stamping on both the foliage and the weathered pot. There's even a stamp and die to cut out the thin strip of soil you can see. Thirdly, I love the little plant label that has three different words / phrases that fit in it.

Finally, I LOVE the sentiments in this yet; both the words and the font. There's also a really gorgeous stitched label die included. I finished my card off by embellishing with some Iridescent Rhinestone Jewels.

Stampin' Up! Sending Smiles Birthday Card

Hello friends,

I hope you are having a fabulous Monday. It's a beautiful sunny autumn day here, and sunshine always makes me smile.

Today I have a birthday card using the gorgeous new 2022 bundle Sending Smiles. This card is also one of the six cards included in my Sending Smiles Class, which is now available as an instant download PDF class (instructions in metric and imperial). You can find the class HERE.

I've used the Awash in Beauty DSP in the class, which is a beautiful floral paper with really gorgeous neutral sheets on the reverse. Having the grids on this one made it easy to line up the background sentiments (well relatively as I still was crooked on a couple!).

I've done a bit of masking of the sentiments to get the sentiment on the card front. Just use our new masking paper or a postal note to cover the cardstock where you don't want the sentiments stamped and you can come up with all sorts of combinations of words and sentiments.

Here's a look at some sneak peeks of the other cards in my Sending Smiles PDF Instant Download Class. The class includes one of my fave fancy fold cards too. Sending Smiles is a great bundle to work with, with a great range of different sentiments.

Stampin Up Texture Chic Suite birthday card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator, Melbourne Australia

I love this suite so much. It's my absolute fave in the new Annual Catalogue both in terms of style and colour. I love the illusion of texture and the gold foiling in the DSP, and all the layering options with the stamps and dies. It coordinates beautifully here with gold, Petal Pink and Soft Succulent. Other coordinating colours are Evening Evergreen, Mango Melody, Pool Party and Soft Suede.
