More tropical inspiration: Stampin' Up! Tropical Oasis Product Suite

Hello stampers. Time for some more inspiration using the Tropical Suite from the Stampin' Up! 2020 January to June mini catalogue.

I started with this card using lots of pieces of the suite. I really love the palm tree image, it evokes happy emotions in me. I als0 love the look and texture of the Coastal Weave embossing folder and the Braided Burlap Trim in this Suite. Oh and the trinkets too!!

The 'DSP' in this one, is actually one of the Memories and More cards cut down to size. The palm trees are stamped in Soft Sea Foam and Coastal Cabana, and the palm trees on the base card are stamped in Crumb Cake (stamped off once). The pineapple is stamped in Soft Suede.

I also made some quick and easy cards using the Tropical Oasis Memories and More card pack, and the Magnolia Lane Large Speciality Memories and More cards and envelopes. I have just used one of the smaller cards on each card, and embellished with some die cut leaves and a trinket. The greeting is cut out using the smallest oval in the Stitched Shapes dies.

Poppy Party Day 2: Stampin' Up! Painted Poppies Bright and Bold Card

Hello there.

Back with my day 2 creation for the Poppy Party. Today I decided to brighten things right up compared to yesterday's card and use the Stampin' Up! Painted Poppies bundle from the 2020 January mini catalogue in a completely new way.

Stampin Up Painted Poppies Bundle. Gift with Purchase Jan 12-19th . Claire Daly Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

My colour combination for today's card is:

Claire Daly 2020 Stampin' Up! Colour Combination Crushed Curry, Lovely Lipstick, Pumpkin Pie

This card was super simple to create. I just stamped the multiple poppy image in a row (tip: start in the centre of the white panet first, and then stamp at each end) in Memento Black Ink as I wanted to colour with Stampin' Blends. I then just coloured the flowers in the darkest shade of Mango Melody, Lovely Lipstick and Pumpkin Pie. My greeting is again from Sending You Thoughts (Saleabration level 1 choice) stamp set, which you can choose for free if you buy the bundle (see yesterdays post for the stamp set image). A couple of shiny adhesive  rhinestones and we are done. All products used in today's card are linked at the end of the post.

Quick and simple cards with Big Plans Memories and More Card Pack

Want some quick and easy ideas for cards? Today's cards literally took me 15-20 minutes from start to finish for all 3 cards!

The Big Plans card pack was one of the things which really caught my eye at the Demonstrator launch of the 2018 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue in Sydney in April. I think it was a combination of the colour combination and the cute design. Most people think these are just for pocket scrapbooking, but WOW do we have a surprise for you!

Quick and Easy Stampin Up Big Plans Memories and More card pack cards by Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Yarra Valley, Melbourne, Australia

Our Memories and More packs have had a makeover, and with the cardstock weight stickers now included, they are as equally suited to card making as they are to memory keeping. I tend to mix it up and do both. This card kit also coordinates with our Big Plans Planner Kit. The colours are Calypso Coral, Gray Granite, Pineapple Punch and Whisper White.

Here's a closer look at the BIG PLANS Memories and More card pack. The four sheets in the upper right hand corner are cardstock weight stickers.

Stampin Up Big Plans Memories and More pocket scrapbooking / cardmaking pack. Available in my online store in Australia.

The other very cool thing, is that this year we have also introduced note cards and envelope packs in 2 sizes which are PERFECTLY sized to use with these cards (which makes them super quick and easy to create cards with). As you can see in the cards below, just add a card to the card base, and you have a perfect fit with a slight mat around the outside.

For this card, I have used one of the 6x4" cards for the first layer, and then cut 2 pieces from smaller cards for the other layers (the greeting was already printed on the card). Then I just added some rhinestone jewels and silver and white bakers twine (all the products I have used are available in my online store and are linked to at the end of my post). See how perfectly the cards fit the new Memories and More note cards and envelopes (this is the large pack).

For my second card, I have just used one 6x4" card onto one of the base cards, and used a greeting and washi stickers from the sticker sheets. All I needed to add was some rhinestone jewels.

For my final card, I have just used one of the 6x4" quote cards and added that to a base card. All I needed to finish this card was some of the cardstock weight stickers and rhinestone jewels.

You will definitely want to grab one of the new Memories and More packs and a pack of the coordinating note cards and envelopes for some super quick and easy card supplies to have on hand.

Stampin' Up! Hedgehugs. Quick and simple card ideas.

How super cute is this Hedgehugs stamp set? It's new in the Stampin' Up! 2018 Occasions Catalogue, and is available in wood or clear mount in my online store from January 3rd.

I thought this set was perfect for some quick and easy cards, so the cute images and greetings in the set can be the focus. I chose my colour scheme based on the beautiful Dahlia that is blooming in my garden right now.

Hedgehogs 5

Click through to my blog to see three cards based on this colour combination.

I started with just a super basic card.

Stampin Up Hedgehugs cards from Occasions 2018. Claire Daly, Stampinup Demonstrator Melbourne Australia. #stampinup #hedgehugs, #clairedaly #ossasions2018

 

Here are the step by step instructions for this one:

  1. I stamped the hedgehogs close together, then die-cut with one of the Layering Oval Framelits.
  2. Next I stamped Flirty Flamingo flowers onto the Flirty Flamingo background.
  3. Then I stamped the greeting on a Very Vanilla scrap and cut out with the Classic Label Punch.
  4. I cut a piece of Berry Burst cardstock 1.5" wide. and the width of the card. I then cut a banner shape at each end with the Triple Layer Banner Punch.
  5. The banner piece is attached with Snail, and the oval piece and greeting piece with Dimensionals.

I also decided to make two mini gift cards using the same colour combination. These are great to make, and very economical as you can get 4 from a piece of A4 cardstock. Just cut a piece of A4 cardstock in half horizontally, and then each of those pieces in half vertically. The finished size of the unfolded card is 21cm x 7.4-7.5cm (it's actually 7.425, but if you do 3 x 7,4 winde ones and 1 7.5cm wide one it makes life way easier!).

The Berry Burst pieces are 7cm wide x 9.8cm long. The Very Vanilla piece on the hedgehog card is 5.2cm wide x 7.4cm long. The Very Vanilla piece on the bird card is 4.8cm long x 4.0cm wide. I have also rounded 2 of the corners on these pieces.

Stampin' Up! Year of Cheer for the Art with Heart team last Heart of Christmas post for 2017 HOC #27

Hello. Well we did it, 27 weeks of Christmas inspiration in our very first Heart of Christmas series from the Art with Heart Stampin' Up! team. Today is week 27, and our last post of the series.

Graphic

This week I am showcasing another super simple reproducible card, that still has some wow factor thanks to the embossing and foiled paper.

Stampin Up 2017 Christmas card using Year of Cheer DSP, Everyday Label Punch and Watercolor Christmas stamp se. Card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.t.

The base is Crumb Cake cardstock and a piece of the beautiful Year of Cheer DSP for the next layer. I have used the Everyday Label punch to cut my greeting. The greeting is from Watercolor Christmas stamp set and it has been embossed in silver. I recommend to stamp and emboss first and then punch it out. The piece of gold foil behind the label is measured 4cm x 4,3cm (or 1 5/8" x 2 11/16"). Then you just need about 27-30cm of Gold Mini Sequin Trim for under the label and three Adhesive Rhinestone Jewels scattered around.
