Stampin' Up! Framed Florets / Fitting Florets Birthday Card

Hello friends. Time to share some cardmaking inspiration. This is one of the cards I designed for my card kit giveaway for my Stampin' Up! Fitting Florets promotion this month. So if you purchase either the Framed Florets bundle or Fitting Florets Collection by the end of November, you will receive a physical card to kit to make this card and also 4 other cards (including a fun fold card), as well as written instructions (with measurements in imperial and metric) for each of the cards. 

My promotion ends November 30th though, so if you love these products, grab the Framed Florets bundle (you get one kit for 5 cards) or the Fitting Florets collection (you get 2 kits = 10 cards) by then. You can find the products HERE in my online store, or you can email me at cdaly@bigpond.net.au, or call/text on 0412 120 498 and order directly with me. I will keep track of who orders, and get the kit and instructions out to you.

If you just want to purchase the PDF instructions and videos for the 5 cards (available worldwide with immediate download, instructions in imperial and metric), you can do that HERE on my PDF Instant Download Class Page.

Stampin Up Framed Florets birthday card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Melbourne Australia.

There's so much to love about the Fitting Florets collection. The bundle is really versatile with a gorgeous floral outline imagery and included sentiments, plus a coordinating die set of decorative ovals (which also cut plain ovals) and dies which cut out the images, as well as extra foliage which I LOVE! The Fitting Florets DSP, Adhesive Gold Swirls and the Framed and Festive stamp set from the collection will only be available until January 4th (unless sold out earlier), but the Framed Florets bundle (shown below) is a pre-release from the 2023 January to April Mini Catalogue, so will be available at least until the end of April 2023.

The DSP is so gorgeous, I would definitely grab some of that before it goes! I'm also totally in love with the dies. They are really versatile and there are so many layering options.

For me, the centrepiece of this gorgeous collection is definitely the dies. The die set includes gorgeous decorative oval dies, as well as dies that cut around the images, and some additional foliage.

The colour palette and imagery in the Designer Series Paper is so gorgeous. You can even use the dies or some fussy cutting to cut images from the DSP to use on your projects.

Stampin' Up! Boughs of Holly Suite and Leaves of Holly Bundle

Hello friends. 'Tis the season to be getting started on your handmade Christmas cards. I really value sending handmade cards to my friends and family. I love the tradition of giving and receiving cards, and having them displayed among my Christmas decorations. It brings warmth to my heart. That is worth devoting time to.

I really love traditional Christmas colours for creating. The Boughs of Holly DSP ticks all the boxes for me, as it coordinates with 3 of our red colours, and 3 of our green colours. I also added in an additional green in this card. Here's a look at the delightful Boughs of Holly DSP. The imagery is so gorgeous and I love the Poinsettias especially.

Here's a look at the card I made using this DSP and the Leaves of Holly bundle from the suite.

I have used Evening Evergreen and Old Olive as the greens, and coloured the berries on the Textural Elements embellishments with Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blends.  I love the dimension you get with these pressed wood embellishments.

I have used gold metallic trim (from the Simply Elegant Trim Pack) on this card, but the suite also includes Natural Woven Ribbon which can be coloured with Stampin' Blends. Linen thread would also be a fabulous embellishment to use with this DSP.

This Birthday Piggy and Playful Piggy Dies for the Perfect Partners Promotion

I was excited to see that This Birthday Piggy was one of the 6 stamp sets which have new die sets available for purchase during September. I had already purchased the stamp set as I loved it when it came out in the 2022 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. I loved the crisp outline images which are versatile for colouring and paper piecing and I also thought it was a great set for children's birthday cards. It has great sentiments too, in a really nice font. The dies just elevate that versatility even further. In addition to outline dies (and this set would have been tricky to fussy cut imo), the dies include a cute cart, extra gift, flowers, leaves, grass, a banner and the cutest little bandana for the pig!

You can purchase the dies by themselves as I did, or purchase the dies and stamp set together for a 10% discount. Browse all the 6 die sets available during the Perfect Partners promotion HERE.

Here's a look at the This Birthday Piggy stamp set and the Playful Piggy Dies. (Click on the image to see it larger)

Here's a card I have made with this bundle.

Stampin Up This Birthday Piggy birthday card by Claire Daly, Australia

For this one I have blended some Pool Party ink onto Shimmery White cardstock and then coloured the image with Stampin' Blends. I used S1000 from the Neutrals Collection Stampin Blends for the pig, with some light Flirty Flamingo in the ears and on the nose. I used Mint Macaron for the candle and balloon, and Daffodil Delight for the candle flame. The cake is coloured with both shades of Flirty Flamingo. For the additional die cuts I have used crumb cake for the wagon, Mint Macaron for the gift and Flirty Flamingo for the banner and ribbon on the gift. I love the embossing detail from the dies, especially on the cute banner!

Stampin' Up! Cottage Rose Watercolour Birthday Card

Hello stamping friends.

As I mentioned in previous posts, it's World Watercolour Month  in July, so here's a watercolour birthday card for you using the Cottage Rose bundle from the Stampin Up 2022 Annual Catalogue. 

Stampin Up Cottage Rose birthday card Claire Daly, Stampin Up demonstrator, Melbourne, Australia

The paper is the Abigail Rose DSP which is part of the same suite that includes the Cottage Rose bundle. It's called the Abigail Rose Suite, and you can find it on page 56/57 of the 2022 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. The sentiment is from the same set. The embellishments I have added are Linen Thread and one of the Brushed Metallic Dots on the folded DSP corner.

Stampin Up Cottage Rose birthday card Claire Daly, Stampin Up demonstrator, Melbourne, Australia

For the watercolouring, I have used ink from the inside of my ink pads and Water Painters. I used Blushing Bride for the flower, Garden Green for the leaves and a bit of Crumb Cake around the other foliage poking out behind the rose.

Stampin Up Cottage Rose birthday card Claire Daly, Stampin Up demonstrator, Melbourne, Australia

My style of watercolouring is a messy, vintage look and I don't always stay within the lines. I like that though and it's less pressure so more relaxing! I did an in depth video some time ago showing my style of watercolouring, so have a look if you would like more information about what I do. I LOVE watercolouring. It's my favourite way to add colour to cards.

 

You can also view lots of other examples of my watercoloured cards HERE.

If you are interested in more card ideas using the Abigail Rose suite, I have a 5 card instant download PDF class available for $15AUD (approx $10-$11 USD on today's currency exchange rates). You can find my PDF Instant Download Classes HERE.
