Stampin' Up! Hand Penned Suite and Encircled in Beauty Dies

Hello friends.

Today I wanted to share a card that was quick and easy to create, but which I love because it uses 3 of my favourite things from the new Annual Catalogue.

Stampin Up 2021 thank you card using Hand-Penned Petals bundle and Encircled in Beauty Dies. Card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Melbourne Australia.

The 3 favourite items I have used on this card (you can check them out in the links at the end of the post) are: 

  • The Hand-Penned Petals Suite (but you already knew that from previous posts, right?)
  • The gorgeous Encircled in Beauty Dies. I love how circle dies break up the straight lines in cards.
  • The Hand-Penned Memories and More Cards and Envelopes. I LOVE these! They are pre-printed and ready to go, plus incredible value. Just $17.50 for 20 cards and coordinating patterned envelopes. They make a perfect card base for stamped cards, or cards made using the elements in the Hand-Penned Memories and More card pack.

The secons layer of the card is a strip of the Hand-Penned DSP (5cm wide x 13.5cm) with a banner end cut in one end. The largest Encircled in Beauty die is a great size to use with this image. I stamped the image in Basic Gray, and over-stamped the flower using Pale Papaya. For the leaves, I used my Mint Macaron Stampin' Blends to colour them. This picks up the colours in the Hand-Penned DSP I have used as the first layer. To finish my card off, I have used some of the Genial Gems from the Hand-Penned Suite.

Stampin' Up! Forever & Always Bundle, with True Love Designer Series Paper

Hello friends. Today I have another Stampin' Up! card idea for you from products that will be available on January 5th in the new 2021 Stampin Up January to June Mini Catalogue. This card features the Forever and Always bundle, and the True Love Designer Series Paper. These products are perfect for wedding, engagement and velentines papercraft projects. I love them!

Stampin Up Forever and Always bundle and True Love Designer Series Paper. 2021 card idea by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

The bundle features the Forever and Always stamp set, and the Always dies which contains two large die-cut words (Love and Always), some labels to cut out other words in the stamp set, and some dies which cut out the flowers and leaves in the set. There are also dies to cut out outlines for both of the large words and I have used one of these in today's project.

Stampin Up Forever and Always bundle and True Love Designer Series Paper. 2021 card idea by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

The True Love Designer Series paper is a 12x12" 12 double sided paper pack entirely in black and white. It has floral images on one side, and patterns on the other. You can alter the paper by colouring it however you like: sponge brayering, using blending brushes or colouring with Stampin' Blends as I have have done with the flowers in this card. I have used a combination of Flirty Flamingo, Calypso Coral and Old Olive Stampin' Blends. They blend nicely on this paper, just make sure you have something underneath the paper when colouring to protect your work surface.

The animals are very cute, and it has a range of great sentiments perfect for baby boy or girl cards including the popular 'it's a girl' and 'it's a boy' sentiments.

For this card I coloured the image with Stampin' Blends. I used light and dark Smoky Slate and light Rococo Rose. I also used the Blender Pen to remove some of the colour and to blend out the light Smoky Slate.

Handmade 2020 Christmas Wood Slice Ornaments using Stampin' Up! products.

Hello craft people. I have something a bit different for you today. I made these hand stamped wood slice Cjristmas ornaments using Stampin Up products, and I have a video tutorial to show you how I made them. I have also included a supply list, and where to buy the wood slices if you are in Australia. 

I love how these turned out. I have used the Wishes and Wonder stamp set, and In the Pines stamp set (both from the 2020 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue) with some colouring and masking to make them. I love the handmade farmhouse style of these DIY ornaments!

I've made a video tutorial to show you how this one is made.

Video Tutorial

Here's a closer look at the one that I painted with acrylic paint first.

Here's a closer look at the embellishments I chose for each ornament. I wanted this one to be gold and sparkly.

For this one I wanted a more neutral effect, so I used linen thread and Very Vanilla scalloped lace with the jingle bells (all available in my online store - see links at the end of the post).

Where did I get my supplies?

  • For the Stampin' Up! products I used to stamp, colour and embellish, you can find the product links to my online store at the end of the post.
  • I got the sealant and acryic paint at my local hardware store in the craft aisle.
  • I got my wood slices from a local to me supplier, in the Yarra Valley of Victoria Australia. I was really happy with the smooth sanding and quality of their products, packaging and quick delivery (and I love to shop local), which means I am happy to recommend them for those of you who live in Australia. They are called Stringybark Supplies and they have many different sizes and options at a good price for the great quality. 

I hope you enjoy making you own hand stamped wood slice ornaments. I intend to write a little message on the back and gift them (I love the tradition of gifting ornaments). They would be great for market stalls too.
