Stampin' Up! Waves of Inspiration Masculine Birthday Card

Hello paper crafters! 

Today I have a masculine birthday card for you featuring the Waves of Inspiration bundle which will be in the 2022-23 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue which starts on May 3rd (if you don't have a copy you can request one HERE). This bundle was released early, and it also had some coordinating papers, foil sheets and embellishments as part of the Waves of the Ocean suite / promotion. Only the bundle will be carrying on after May 2nd (see below for more details on the others). I think this suite is perfect for masculine cards.

This was a pretty simple card to make. Here are the steps:

  1. I started with a top folding base card of Crumb Cake.
  2. Next I have a layer of the DSP, and then I have tied two strands of Crumb Cake twine (from the basics twine pack) around the top.
  3. I stamped the Pelican image in Soft Suede and then cut that out with one of the Rectangle Stitched Dies. I attached that (with Dimensionals) over a small strip of Crumb Cake cardstock which was 1.8 x 10.5cm.
  4. I stamped the Happy Birthday greeting from the stamp set, and cut into thin strips which I attached over the image.
  5. Finally I added 3 of the Rhinestone Waves Basic Jewells.

I also made this card using one of the three different coloured foil sheets on the wave die-cut. I really like the sentiments and font in this stamp set.

Stampin' Up! Argyle Golf Fathers Day Card using the Country Club Suite

Hello stampers,

Today I have a golf themed Fathers Day card for you. This card feautres Stampin' Up! products from the golf-themed Country Club Suite, which debuted in the 2020 January to June Mini Catalogue.

Golf themed  fathers day card 2020 using Country Club suite. By Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

This Country Club Suite suite is perfect for the males in your life, especially golfers! The suite comprises a 12x12 Designer Series Paper Pack, a stamp set and coordinating dies, coordinating twine, some very cute wood golf elements, and an Argyle 3D embossing folder. Unfotunately these products (with the exception of the Argyle 3D embossing folder) are now retiring, which means they are only available until June 2nd (or earlier if sold out). View the Country Club suite HERE in my Online Store to check if there are any you want before they sell out.

For this card, I have used the inked embossing technique to create a two tone effect on the embossing folder (just brayer ink on the debossed side of the folder before you place the cardstock in and put it through your embossing machine. I used Night of Navy ink and Seaside Spray cardstock for this one.

How cute are the embellishments in this suite? The wood veneer coordinates with the look of the suite perfectly, and they just all come together really well with the stamp set and dies.

Your Creative Connection 106: My Favourite DSP

600 pixels

Hello papercraft friends. Today it's time for another Your Creative Connection global Stampin' Up! showcase. In this round #YCC106, my global friends and I are creating with our favourite Designer Series Paper (DSP). I'm really looking forward to visitig each person to see which paper pack they chose. I tried to guess for a few, let's see how well I have done.

My choice was Perennial Essence Designer Series paper. As soon as I saw this paper launched at OnStage Live in New Zealand I was IN  LOVE. Not only because of the colours and beautiful imagery, but the Monet like look of the paper. I was lucky enough to have a trip to Paris booked with a friend 3 months after On Stage, and we had already booked our tickets to visit Monet's Garden in Giverny.

Perennial Essence B

Perennial Essence DSP is a 12x12" sized pack with 6 double sided designs. The imagery on this paper was actually handpainted by the artists at Stampin' Up! The designs are so soft and beautful and it coordinates with at least eleven different Stampin' Up! colours: Balmy Blue, Blackberry Bliss, Blueberry Bushel, Calypso Coral, Flirty Flamingo, Mossy Meadow, Old Olive, Crushed Curry, Petal Pink, So Saffron and Whisper White. It is also part of the Perennial Essence suite, so has coordinating items (see links list at end of post).

Perennial Essence A

The sad bit is though, as this paper has been around for a year, it is retiring on June 2nd or until supplies last, whichever is earliest. If you want to buy it, I would get in fast. I jumped in today and purchased some more myself as I am not ready to see it go yet and want to use it for my Monet's Garden mini album (retiring products lists for the 2020 Annual Catalogue and 2020 January to June Mini Catalogue are linked towards the end of the post).

I had originally planned to make 1-2 cards for this post, but once I started playing I made 6 cards in an afternoon. I used Crumb Cake as the base on four of them, and Purple Posy on the other two. Neither of those colours are on the official coordinating colours list for this DSP (these are listed in the catalogue net to each DSP, in the online store and also on the packing cardboard on the paper pack itself), which shows you how versatile this paper is.

Stampin' Up!  Perennial Essence DSP 2020 cards by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia for YCC106

For these first two cards, I have just used one cardfront sized piece of patterned paper. I think this sheet is my favourite in the whole pack. You could even frame it. To complete these cards, I have used die cut labels from the Detailed Bands Dies and greetings from the Ornate Thanks and Band Together stamp sets. You will see the layered and slightly crumbled little flowers on a few of my cards. Those were made using dies which are included in the Ornate Border Dies (all links at end of post).

For these next two cards, I just cut two different patterned rectangle pieces of the DSP both ways on the diagonal, and then  interchanged two pieces. For this first one, I used the Ornate Frames dies for a big thank you.

In this second card I used the Detailed Bands dies again, with the greeting from Band Together stamp set (these products can be purchased as a bundle).

My final two cards are both the same, so I will just show you one of them. In these cards, I adhered the paper strips to the Petal Pink cardstock and then placed that through the Subtle 3D embossing folder. The effect of doing that is AMAZING with this paper. It looks like a painted canvas. To finish these cards off, I offset two medium daisys and placed an adhesive Perennial Essence Floral Centre in the middle (the floral centres are another thing I added to my order today - they are so realistic). The greeting is from Peaceful Moments in the 2020 January to June mini catalogue, and I have cut it out with the Timeless Label Punch.

Before we head off around the world to visit my crafty demonstrator friends, I wanted to share a couple of special pictures with you from my visit to Monet's Garden in Giverny. This was a dream destination for a garden lover like me to visit, and it didn't dissapoint! I can't wait to complete my mini album and will be sure to post pictures here on my blog when I do.

Now it's time to head off around the world (luckily we have virtual travel like this in times of social isolation), and visit my lovely global demonstrator friends to see which DSP is their favourite. Next we are off to visit Dawn Olchefske in Minnesota, USA.

The Holiday Catalogue ends soon - see what is retiring & what is carrying over.

It will soon be time to say goodbye to the 2019 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue.

Today Stampin' Up! released the lists of what is retiring and what is carrying over in some way to 2020.

Retiring Products

First let's look at what is retiring. These products are now only available while stocks last. They have been grouped together in a section on the website called Year End Closeout Sale. Not everything is on sale, but there are some great discounts on great products (up to 30% off).

View the Year End Closeout Sale / Retiring Holiday Catalogue Product in my online store.

If there is anything here you like the look of, get in before it is gone for good. Don't forget to use the December Host Code for a free new catalogue gift in mid January.

If you would prefer to just look at a list of what's retiring, you can find that here. As the products are only available while stocks last, I can't guarantee that things will still be in stock, but you can contact me and I will check for you.

Products which are Carrying Over

I have a PDF list of products which are carrying over which you can download in a tic, but first I wanted to draw your attention to a few important points.

  1. Even if the 2 products in a bundle are carrying over, the current 10% off bundle pricing is only available until January 2nd. After that you pay full price for each separate item.
  2. Some of the items will continue to be available to be ordered, but something new is being trialled this year. There is a selection of products (marked with an asterisk on the list) that are going into 'hibernation' where they won't be orderable from 3rd January, but will reappear in the 2020 Holiday Catalogue (along with a whole lot of new stuff too!).
