Colour Creations Week 32: Pacific Point & Stampin Up Let's Set Sail Bundle

Colour Creations 2021 to 2022 logoHi friends. I had a chance to do some creating on the weekend, so I am delighted to be able to participate in our weekly Art with Heart Team Colour Creations blog hop. Our team girls have lots of fun creating and sharing with you and each other, each week.

Today our colour is Pacific Point. This isn't a colour I tend to reach for very often, but I do like it. It's a nice bright blue.

This colour always makes me think of the ocean, so I have chosen the new Let's Set Sail Bundle for my card today. This bundle consists of a stamp set and coordinating punch.

Stampin Up New 2022 Let's Set Sail Bundle. Masculine Birthday card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator, Melbourne, Australia.

This is a great new bundle. Punch bundles are usually quite a bit cheaper than die and stamp bundles, and I love the ease of just grabbing a punch instead of getting out my die cutting machine. This is a great stamp set for masculine cards, and has some versatile sentiments in a great font. I really like the different ocean stamps for grounding the sailing boat image too.

Here is my colour combination for today's card.

Colour Combination Pacific Point, Real Red, Basic Gray.

To make this card I started with a C6 top folding card in Basic White. I then cut another layer 10cm x 14.3cm and cut a circle in the centre using the second largest Layering Circle Die. I then embossed that piece with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder (emboss after you cut the circle for the best effect). I then cut a piece of Basic White cardstock slightly bigger than the die cut circle and blended some Pacific Point ink in an ombre pattern. This was adhered to the back of the die cut circle opening with some Tear and Tape. I then stamped the birds in Pacific Point ink at the top of the blending. This whole panel was attached to the card front using Dimensionals.

The ship is stamped in Basic Gray and the Sails in Real Read, and both cut out with the punch. I've adhered the sails with Dimensionals them up a little.

To finish my card I stamped the greeting in Basic Grey and cut it out with one of the Rectangle Stitched dies.

I then tied a double strand of White bakers twine to the top of the card.

Stampin' Up! Eden's Garden Christmas Card

Hello friends! 

I was a bit late to get my link in for the team blog Christmas blog hop tonight, but thought I would post a card anyway. You can find the link to the team blog hop at the end of my post.

Tonight I am featuring a Christmas card using both the Eden Garden suite, and the Merriest Moments bundle.

Stampin Up Eden's Garden & Merriest Moments 2021 Christmas Card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

I love the Ever Eden Designer Series Paper for Christmas. It combines the rich deep Evening Evergreen with the lighter Soft Succulent, and includes gold foil highlights for a festive touch. I have added some die cuts from the Eden dies, and my sentiment and label are from the merriest Moments bundle. I think the highlight of my card is the flower from the Merriest Moments bundle adorned with the beautiful Garden Jewels, and a Brushed Metallic Adhesive backed Dot in the centre.

Two Stampin' Up! Gray Granite Christmas Cards for Colour Creations.

Colour Creations 2021 to 2022 logo

Hello stampers! I'm playing along with my team Colour Creations blog hop today. We are using one of my very favourite neutral colours, Gray Granite. This is a beautiful 'griege' shade - a little bit grey, a little bit beige.

Since I'm right in the swing of Christmas cards right now, I have two Gray Granite Christmas cards to share with you today. The first one uses Merriest Moments bundle from the Stampin' Up! Australia July to December Mini Catalogue.

I have used the Merriest Moments embossing folder on the Gray Granite cardstock layer, and then used my sponge dauber to sponge on a little more Gray Granite ink to the embossed bit to highlight it some more. I've stamped the Poinsettia's in Blackberry Bliss, and added some gold embellishments. Both of these colours work great with Gray Granite.

The next card is a case of one of the free tutorials I sent my subscribers a few weeks ago. I love how the design of that one turned out, that I recreated it in Gray Granite too.

For this one I have used some of the new Ever Eden DSP, coming to customers along with coordinating embellishments and an early release bundle from the January to June mini catalogue. I have used the Evening Evergreen jewels from the 2021-22 InColor Jewels pack, some gold twine from the Simply Elegant Trim Combo and the sentiment, deer and coordinating punch are from the Peaceful Deer Bundle. That's the Timeworn Type embossing folder on the background Gray Granite piece. Such a GORGEOUS folder!

Before we move onto the next card, here's a fun blooper for you. Our lovely Simba likes to get in on the photo love sometimes when I am trying to take photos of my cards. He even looks like he is posing in this one.

Stampin Up Australia Heart of Christmas 2021 Week 7: Sparkly Christmas Cards

Heart of Christmas Header 2021

Hi friends. I'm back with some more Christmas creations for you today, for week 7 of Heart of Christmas. I hope we are inspiring you with ideas for your 2021 Christmas cards. Today I am featuring one of our Saleabration items which you can earn for FREE with a $90 order up until September 30th. It's called Be Dazzling Specialty Paper, and we all need a bit of dazzle in our lives right now don't we?

You get eight 6x6" sheets in the pack and it can be die cut, punched and coloured as well.

Stamin Up Be Dazzling DSP which you can earn for free with a qualifying order up to 30th September 2021.

Here is my first card this week, a sparkly Christmas tree.

Stampin Up 2021 Christmas card using Be Dazzling Specialty Paper, Christmas Tree Dies and Sparkle of the Season stamp set. Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

For my first card I have used the Christmas Tree Dies (in the Whimsy and Wonder Suite, page 25 of the Stampin Up Australia July to December Mini Catalogue) to cut a base tree in Evening Evergreen and then the garland from the Be Dazzling Specialty Paper. This paper cuts fine in the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine, but I recommend a firm sandwich and a couple of runs through the machine. The little star was cut from a retired punch in my stash. I have used Holiday Rhinestone Jewels to decorate the garland, and my DSP is Tidings of Christmas from the Annual Catalogue. The scalloped piece is cut from the Scalloped Contours Dies (in the Annual catalogue). My sentiment is from the Sparkle of the Season stamp set in the July to December Mini Catalogue.

For my second card, I used the Sparkle of the Season bundle.

My base card is Soft Succulent and I have used the Tidings of Christmas DSP for my two DSP layers. I cut the wreath from the Seasonal Swirls Dies and then coloured it with my light Soft Succulent Stampin' Blends to tone it in with the DSP. I have added some Holiday Rhinestones to the wreath, and my sentiment is from the Sparkle of the Season stamp set.
