Stampin' Up! Bloom Where You are Planted Suite and Plentiful Plants Bundle

Hello stamping friends. 

Today I have a card that is perfect for the plant lovers (and that's me too!). This thank you card, features a brand new suite in the 2021 - 2022 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue, called Bloom Where You are Planted. The centre piece in this bundle is the Plentiful Plants Bundle of stamp set and coordinating dies. There is also a delightful plant themed Bloom Where You are Planted Designer Series Paper and some paper lattice pieces.

I have used Soft Succulent (a new 2021 InColor) as the base card, and the brick paper is from the Bloom Where You are Planted DSP.

For this card, the posts and plants were actually cut from the DSP using the dies which coordinate with the images in a couple of the sheets of the paper. I also fussy cut a couple of others using paper snips. The macrame hanger and the pot stand were cut from Crumb Cake Cardstock using the dies. The lattice was sponged with Early Espresso ink (it comes as Kraft thick paper) so there was more definition between the bricks and the lattice. I tied a double layer of linen thread around the top of the card.

Here's a look at the bundle so you can see the leaves and pot dies included (that also coordinate with the paper - VERY cool).

The sentiment is the only thing stamped on this stamp set! I have used Early Espresso ink to stamp the greeting on Crumb Cake cardstock, and used the Everyday Label Punch to cut this out (I then trimmed some excess from the top and bottom of the label using my trimmer).

The good news is, you can buy all of these scrumptious products in one suite, all together. It's called the Bloom Where You are Planted Suite and you can find it HERE in my Online Stampin' Up! Store.

Colour Creations Showcase Week 48: So Saffron

106922496_10159992931478098_1171141180047246582_n

Hello friends. I'm finding myself with a little more creative time at the moment, so I am excited to be able to participate in some of the creative challenges with my Art with Heart team girls. This week's colour challenge is So Saffron, a very muted yellow and to be honest not one I have created with much in the last year. 

Here is my card. I chose to use the beautiful new Hand-Penned Petals bundle. By stamping off (stamping once on scrap paper and then onto your card without reinking) the Polished Pink and Soft Succulent once each, I came up with a soft colour combination using So Saffron.

Stampin Up Hand Penned Petals bundle (new for 2021) handmade thinking of you / sympathy card. Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

Here's the colour combination if you want to Pin It for future reference.

Stampin Up Color Combination 2021 InColors. Polished Pink, Soft Succulent, So Saffron and Basic Gray

One of the things I LOVE about this new bundle is it's designed for the stamping to be imperfect! I love the fresh vintage look you get when you stamp the solid colours for the leaves and flowers, and they don't quite fit perfectly. This really suits my style of stamping. I stamped the flowers and the sentiment in Basic Gray to tie in with the softer colour combination.

Stampin Up Hand Penned Petals bundle (new for 2021) handmade thinking of you / sympathy card. Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

I have used the scalloped edge die from the coordinating Penned Flower Dies to create the left side edging. The flowers are two of the largest flower bunch, placed together. Here's a look at the Hand-Penned suite. You can buy the suite together (which includes 10% discount on the bundle), the bundle with a 10% discount, or individual components of the suite. All the product links for today's project are at the end of the post.

I have used a couple of other new products on my card too. My sentiment is from a great new stamp set with 11 sentiments, called Inspired Thoughts. I really love the font in this set. I have also used a great new die set called Encirled in Beauty, and there is just a peek of one of the decorative circle shapes poppng out unter the sentiment. This is going to be one of my favourite die sets for sure.

These are the new Encircled in Beauty Dies. The largest die in the set is 9.8 x 9.8cm, so they are perfectly sized for card fronts.

Two Stampin' Up! Art Gallery Bundle Cards: Thinking of You and Miss You

Hello stampers :)

Today I have two cards to show you which I have made using the Art Gallery Bundle and the Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper. Both cards are pretty simple and designed to show off the beautiful paper and the coordinating Fine Art Ribbon. This paper was hand painted by Stampin' Up! artists and is one of my most favourite Stampin' Up! papers ever!

Stampin Up Art Gallery Bundle 2021 cards by Claire daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Melbourne Australia

My base card on this one is Petal Pink. For the stamping, I have stamped directly onto one of the lighter neutral paper pieces. The ink colour I have used was Flirty Flamingo and I stamped it off once to give a lighter shade.

The Champagne Rhinestones look great with this paper as well.

Stampin Up Art Gallery Bundle 2021 cards by Claire daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Melbourne Australia

For my slimline card, I have used the die cut words in the bundle for my sentiment, and cut these from Flirty Flamingo cardstock. I stamped the other sentiment directly onto the patterned paper again. The base card for this one is Flirty Flamingo, but there is also a teeny mat of Old Olive cardstock around the patterned paper (I think I would make it a little more noticeable next time).

The Fine Art Ribbon is so beautiful. It's a natural base, but has lovely gold flecks through it. I'm so glad it's carrying over to the new 2021 Annual Catalogue (more details below). The bundle will be carrying over too, but sadly not the Fine Art Floral DSP, so make sure to get that before June 3oth!

Dragonfly Punch Birthday Card

Hello friends. Today I have a handmade birthday card for you, featuring a dragonfly. This card is made with the Stampin Up Dragonflies Punch, the coordinating Dragonfly Garden stamp set, and the Dandy Garden Designer Series Paper

I love dragonflies. My Mum gave my a crystal and wire one many years ago which I treasure. I have been doing some research about Dragonfly symbolism and found this at whatismyspriritanimal.com

"As a Spirit Animal, Dragonfly moves into our life often when we are taking things too seriously and losing our joy. This teacher restores lightness to our spiritual wings and mental processes. This animal spirit guide’s reminder is simple: find the positive no matter how dark it seems.

Dragonfly is tied intimately to your emotional state. It asks: what feelings are you having that you’re hiding? What feelings are self-created illusions? What feelings do you need to explore more deeply. Give yourself to the Dragonfly’s transformative power and sense of peace"

The dragonfly has beautiful symbolism don't you think?

Now onto my card. The primary colour on my card is Bumblebee, a really bright positive colour.

Stampin Up Dragonfly Gardens Bundle / Dragonflies Punch birthday card.

 

I have started my card with one of the pre-printed Dandy Garden Memories and More Cards & Envelopes. These are beautiful, come in a set of 20 cards and envelopes, and the envelopes have printed patterned liners which coordinate with the cards. They are a great size too (the folded card size is 10.8 x 15.9cm). The printing on the card is Bumblebee on white.

Dandy Garden Notecards - Available in my online Stampin Up store

I added a frame that I die cut from the Ornate Layers Dies (also in Bumblebee), and then added a piece of Bumblebee patterned paper from the Dandy Garden DSP in the centre of the frame (the size to cut is 5.5 x 9.0cm).

Stampin Up Dragonfly Gardens Bundle / Dragonflies Punch birthday card

 

Dandy Garden Designer Series paper (DSP) Availalable in my Online Stampin Up Store

For the Dragonfly, I have created three layers:

  1. The base layer is a dragonfly stamp from the Dragonfly Gardens stamp set, stamped in Night of Navy ink onto Misty Moonlight cardstock, and then cut out with the Dragonflies Punch. This one is adhered directl to the card.
  2. The second layer is cut directly from the Dandy Garden DSP using the Dragonflies punch. Stampin' Up! is great with coordination. This one is adhered using Mini Dimensionals.
  3. The top layer is a double thread bow of the gold cord trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack. I didn't plan to add this, but I had it left over from another project and it just worked. The bow is adhered with a glue dot.

The Dragonfly Garden stamp set has four great sentiments, but I wanted this for a handmade birthday card, so I have used  a stamp from the Best Year stamp set. I have stamped in Night of Navy onto white and just used my Stampin' Up! Paper Trimmer to cut out the sentiment. Finally I have added two Gilded Gems near my sentiment.
