Quick and Easy Stampin' Up! Hand Penned Cards

I love being able to whip up quick and easy handmade cards. The Stampin' Up! Hand Penned Memories and More cards make creating a breeze as you can buy the pre-printed cards and envelopes (which are SO pretty), and then you have a range of perfectly sized cards you can play around with for elements on the card front.

Here are two cards I made quickly and easily using these products. 

Stampin Up Hand Penned Quick and Easy Cards by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

For my first card, I just trimmed down one of the 6x4" cards and added a Daffodil Delight mat either side. The sentiment is from Hand-Penned stamp set and I have used the Double Oval Punch with the sentiment. The embellishments I have shown on this one are the Genial Gems which coordinate with this suite perfectly (links at end of post to view products I have used).

For this one, I just added a Polished Pink Mat to the 3x4" card from the Hand-Penned Memories and More pack, and then cut one of the die-cuts from the Penned Flower Dies in half and adhered to the top and bottom before adhering it to the pre-printed card. My greeting is from Best Year sentiment set and I have used the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch on the label. It would even be beautiful without the die cut as the prints in this suite are so beautiful.

Three Cards in One with Stampin Up Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper

Hello crafty friends. Today I want to show you how you can make 3 quick and easy Stampin Up cards in one! I have used the Stampin' Up! Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper from the 2021 Stampin Up Australia Annual Catalogue, along with the super versatile Biggest Wish stamp set from the same catalogue.

Stampin Up 3 quick and easy cards in one using Pansy Petals DSP. 2021 Card by Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

Here's the three cards I made.

Stampin Up 3 quick and easy cards in one using Pansy Petals DSP. 2021 Card by Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

Card Instructions

  1. Start with 3 x C6 standard card bases in Soft Succulent (that's an A4 sheet cut in half vertically and folded in half).
  2. Cut three pieces of coordinating DSP pieces each 10cmx 14.3cm.
  3. Stack them together in your trimmer and make 2 angled cuts (it doesn't really matter where you make them, but aim for 3 pieces around the same size).
  4. Select one piece from each pattern and adhere to the card leaving a teeny gap in between each piece.

The final step is to adhere a sentiment label over the join of the three pieces. I used a circle with my greeting from Biggest Wish stamped in colours to coordinate with the DSP. If you don't have the Biggest Wish Stamp Set, I strongly suggest you take a look using the links at the end of the post. It's so versatile.

I have also used a piece of Soft Succulent Open Weave Ribbon (you need about 22cm for each card), and one of the Soft Succulent 2021-2023 In Color Jewels.

This is such a quick and easy design, I will definitely be making more quick and easy cards using this layout.

2021 Stampin Up Heart of Christmas Week 3: Whimsy and Wonder Sneak Peek

Heart of Christmas Header 2021 Hello stampers. Today I am bringing you some Stampin' Up! Christmas cards for Week 3 of Heart of Christmas 2021. This is also a sneak peek of a new suite in the 2021 Stampin Up July to December Mini Catalogue. My strategy for my Christmas cards is to make 4-5 cards each week, so I can keep on top of the ones I would like to send, and have them completed in time to write in by mid November. Then I can concentrate on tags, hand-made gift wrapping and ornaments. Sometimes this will mean quite simple cards and this is what I have gone with this week.

Whimsy and Wonder 2021 Stampin Up Christmas cards by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

These cards use a brand new suite coming in the July to December Mini Catalogue (you can request your free catalogues HERE, as I have them to mail out now ahead of the catalogue start date on August 3rd). The suite is called Whimsy and Wonder and it's really cute - non traditional colours and a fun take on Christmas.

For this card I have used a 3cm strip of the DSP, and paired it with Blushing Bride cardstock. I have used my blending brushes to blend a little Blushing Bride ink under the whimsical tree die-cuts in Mint Macaron cardstock.

All that was needed to finish these cards was some clear Rhinestone jewels and a greeting from the stamp set in this suite. I stamped that in Smoky Slate to coordinate with the soft colour palette.

Quick and Easy Stampin' Up! Artistically Inked 'Hello' Card

A quick card is a good card, right? Sometimes for me that is definitely the case, other times I like to play with techniques. Today though, I want to show you a quick and easy card using the Artistically Inked bundle from the Stampin Up Australia 2021 Annual Catalogue.

Quick and easy Stampin Up Artistically Inked bundle card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

 

Measurements / Supplies:

To make this card you will need (find these items using the links at the bottom of the post):

  • Standard C6 top folded Pear Pizazz card as the base.
  • A piece of Expressions In Ink Designer Series Paper 10cm x 14.3cm (the piece with Pear Pizazz and Pale Papaya on it)
  • A die cut (out of Pear Pizazz) of the large leaf /branch piece from the Artistic Dies
  • 3 adhesive sequins from the Expressions In Ink Ephemera Pack
  • A piece of Pale Papaya and White ribbon, 25cm in length
  • White bakers twine
  • A scrap of white cardstock and Pear Pizazz ink pad to stamp the greeting from the Artistically Inked stamp set.

Quick and easy Stampin Up Artistically Inked bundle card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

 

Step by Step Instructions:

  1. I adhered the piece of DSP to the card using Stampin' Seal adhesive (you could also use Multipurpose Glue)
  2. I adhered the die cut with glue dots in about 3 or 4 places.
  3. Wrap the Pale Papaya and White ribbon over the top of the branch and overlap on the underside of the card. I just used Stampin' Seal to keep it in place but be sure to not place any adhesive where you will be tying the bow with the White bakers twine. You don't want the ribbon adhered too tightly for the same reason.
  4. Stamp the 'hello' sentiment in Pear Pizazz ink onto a scrap of white cardstock. Trim and cut the ends on an angle. 
  5. Adhere the sentiment piece towards the bottom right of the card and place the three adhesive sequins around the edges.

That's all there is to it. Easy, right?

Five Quick and Easy Stampin' Up! Butterfly Brilliance Cards, each with a different background.

Hello friends. Today I wanted to showcase the early release Butterfly Brilliance bundle. It will be in the new 2021/22 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue, but is available to purchase now which is exciting!

View all these products HERE in my online store.

I wanted to make a quick set of 5 cards, so I cut a piece 6x6" DSP pieces into 5 strips (each one ended up being 13.3cm or 5&3/16" x 3cm or 1&3/16") and then added different backgrounds. I used the Butterfly Bijou DSP which is now sadly sold out, but you could substitute any DSP.

Stampin Up Butterfly Brilliance Quick and Easy handmade card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator, Melbourne Australia.

For some of the cards I left the strips of DSP straight. On others I rounded the top left corner and bottom right corner with the Detailed Trio Punch.

Here's a look at the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle.

Here are the five different backgrounds I used on the Bermuda Bay base cards. 

Left to right we have:

  1. Scripty 3D Embossing Folder
  2. Subtle 3D Embossing Folder
  3. Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder
  4. The Butterfly Brilliance stamp in Bermuda Bay ink stamped off once
  5. The Butterfly Brilliance stamp in Bermuda Bay ink NOT stamped off

5 quick and easu backgrounds for Stampin Up handmade cards.

For three of the cards I attached a die cut butterfly which I had also used the detailed die on. The butterflies were stamped in Magenta Madness ink onto Magenta Madness cardstock before die cutting. You can see all of the different ways to coordinate this bundle in my video below.

Here's a close up of the die cut butterfly.

Before the Butterfly Bijou DSP sold out, I made these cards too, using die cut butterflies from the DSP.
