Stampin' Up! Wishes and Wonder Bundle 2020 Christmas card

Hello friends. Time for some Christmas since, now that the beautiful 2020 Stampin' Up! August to December Mini Catalogue has launched. Today I am playing with the Wishes and Wonder bundle (part of the Wonder of the Season suite) as well as the Evergreen 3D Embossing folder.

2020 Stampin Up Christmas Card using Wishes and Wonder stamp set / bundle. Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Melbourne Australia.

My base card is Mossy Meadow, and the embossed layer is Old Olive. I used a sponge brayer and sponge dauber to add some Old Olive and Mossy Meadow ink to the embossed trees area. LOVE how this turned out.

I diecut the reindeer from brass foil cardstock, and the circlular sentiment was stamped in Mossy Meadow (this was cut out using the circle die in the bundle). The strip of patterned paper is from 'Tis the Season DSP which is part of the Wonder of the Season. To finish the card I added some Wonderul Gems and a combination of ribbons and trims: Real Red Braided Linen Trim and Old Olive Gold Trimmed Satin Ribbon (part of the All The Trimmings ribbon combo), with a bit of gold cord from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo in the Annual Catalogue.

Sponge brayered sky and moon with Stampin' Up! Mountain Air and Very Versailles Stamp Set

Hello stampers. Coming to you safely at home during the Melbourne curfew hours of 8pm to 5am. Honestly, today was so cold, there was no way I wanted to be outside anyway! It even snowed in the outer suburbs, and it was 7 degrees at 3.30pm in the afternoon. Brrrr.

Today's card was inspired by a photo I took in Rome last year, at dusk. I loved the colours of the sky so much I wanted to try and create a similar look using sponge brayers.

Here's what I came up with. I added a moon in there too, and because I didn't have any stamps of the Rome skyline, I used the mountain scenery stamps from Mountain Air which I absoutely love and must play with again very soon.

I've used the retired Purple Posy ink pad, as well as a combination of Petal Pink and Blushing Bride for the sky. For the other stamping I have used the Very Versaille stamp set and the Mountain Air stamp set, with Memento Black ink.

I have also used the Very Versailles stamp set for the sentiment (Stamped in Basic Grey), and some stamping from the same set on a strip of Purple Posy cardstock. The embellishments are from the Elegant Faceted Gems embellishment pack.

I created the banner ends using the fabulous new Banners Pick a Punch, which punches two different banners in 3 different sizes, so it's really 6 punches in one! Great value and a huge timesaver for perfect banner ends every time.

Here's a closer look at the two stamp sets I have used today. First up Very Versailles which is one I have used quite a bit.

Here is Mountan Air. This is my first creation with this stamp set, but I can't wait to play some more. I have shown it here with the coordinating Majestic Mountain dies. This is one of the current bundles where if you purchase them together you will get 10% off.

I'm really pleased how this card turned out. Hope you like it too. The sponge brayers are such a cool tool. If you have never used sponge brayers to combine colours before THIS VIDEO I created to go with one of my weekly tutorials, gives you a good run down of the technique to do the sky and moon (it is essentially the same card using different colours).

Stampin' Up! Posted for You Bundle

Hello friends. Today I'd like to showcase what I think is my favourite new punch in the Stampin' Up! 2020 Annual Catalogue, the Rectangle Postage Stamp Punch, and the coordinating Posted for You stamp set (buy them together for a 10% discount using the links at the end of the post).

Posted for You Bundle / Stamp Set by Stampin Up. 2020 Card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

This is such a great bundle which is really reasonably priced ($54 for the stamp set and punch together). It's a great way to use up little scraps of patterned paper, and you can make mini works of art too.

I embossed the 'Love' image in whote embossing powder onto watercolour paper, and added a watercolour wash of Blushing Bride. When that was dry, I added in some additional colour in a slightly more concentrated shade of Blushing Bride, on the leaves, flower and letters.  The fine water painter in the trio of painters was perfect for this task.

The sentiment and round postage stamp image are included in the Posted for You stamp set and have been stamped in Gray Granite to coordinate with the Peony Garden DSP. The small heart is die cut from the Trio of Tags dies.

You might also spy some cute little embellishments on there. I LOVE these new Elegant Faceted Gems. There are 3 colours in two sizes in the pack: clear, pearlescent white and petal pink. They are the perfect addition to elegant cards as the name implies. I love them so much I just ordered a bunch of these at my shared host code gifts for June customers.

Your Creative Showcase #107: To Bling or not to Bling?

600 pixelsHello papercrafters from aroung the world! Today the YCC crew are bringing you projects with their own versions of bling (or maybe no bling? - we will have to wait and see!).

I would describe myself as a 'subtle blinger'. I do like a bit of bling on my cards, but it tends to be in a subtle way, as opposed to glitter and glimmer. For me I like the shiny bits to be in the form of foiled papers, foil cardstock and a few rhinestones or shiny embellishments here and there. 

Here's today's card to demonstrate my preferred 'bling level'!

Parisian Beauty and Ornate Layers 2020 Split Panel Card Stampin Up - Claire Daly, Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia. YCC#107

I have used the retiring Parisian Beauty bundle and Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper (both now only available while stocks last on until June 2nd) to make this split panel card. The paper has a subtle champagne foiled script running through it and I have carried that through by die cutting the Eiffel Tower in champagne foild cardstock as well.

Parisian Beauty and Ornate Layers 2020 Split Panel Card Stampin Up - Claire Daly, Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia. YCC#107

The frame is cut from the NEW Ornate Layers Dies, which a part of the Ornate Garden Suite and available now to purchase early from the 2020 Annual Catalogue. The flower is die cut from the Parisian Blossoms DSP and also has some of the champagne foiling on it. To complete the embellishing I added a flourish from the Parisian Dies, and three Champagne Rhinestones (yeah - these are carrying over to the new catalogue). My greeting is from Itty Bitty Greetings, a really versatile set when you just need a small greeting. You can view all the products I have used today using the links at the end of the post.

Stampin' Up! Ornate Garden Easel Card

Hello stampers :)

Demonstrators and customers alike are LOVING the gorgeous new Ornate Garden suite that was released early from the upcoming 2020/21 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. It's so beautiful for layering and edging, and the colours of the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper are so beautiful and warm. The patterns are described as classic Victorian florals and I definitely agree.

Find the Ornate Garden Suite Products HERE in my online store(they can be purchased individually, as a bundle or as a whole suite).

If you are subscribed for my free weekly PDF tutorials, you would have received the step by step instructions for this card a few weeks ago. If you haven't subscribed, you can do that HERE so you don't miss out on any of the fun tutorials I have in store for you over the coming months. If you want a sample of my tutorials, there are a couple of free ones you can download HERE on my tutorial page.

Stampin Up 2020 Ornate Garden Easel Card - Claire Daly

My base card is Terracotta Tile, one of last years Incolours. I am really loving this colour lately, and it features a lot in the Ornate Garden Designer Series Paper. I really love the look of the vellum cut with the Ornate Layer Dies and how that softens the look as well. You can see all of the products I have used on today's card in the links at the end of the post.

Stampin Up 2020 Ornate Garden Easel Card - Claire Daly

I'm so glad the Detailed Bands dies are carrying over as I use them a lot to add a simple wow to cards. I have also used the greeting from the coordinating Band Together stamp set on this card. You can still get the 10% off bundle pricing  (as seen HERE in my online store)  up until June 2nd , and then these two items will be available individually (with new bundles available in the new catalogue).
