Colour Creations Showcase Week 48: So Saffron

106922496_10159992931478098_1171141180047246582_n

Hello friends. I'm finding myself with a little more creative time at the moment, so I am excited to be able to participate in some of the creative challenges with my Art with Heart team girls. This week's colour challenge is So Saffron, a very muted yellow and to be honest not one I have created with much in the last year. 

Here is my card. I chose to use the beautiful new Hand-Penned Petals bundle. By stamping off (stamping once on scrap paper and then onto your card without reinking) the Polished Pink and Soft Succulent once each, I came up with a soft colour combination using So Saffron.

Here's the colour combination if you want to Pin It for future reference.

One of the things I LOVE about this new bundle is it's designed for the stamping to be imperfect! I love the fresh vintage look you get when you stamp the solid colours for the leaves and flowers, and they don't quite fit perfectly. This really suits my style of stamping. I stamped the flowers and the sentiment in Basic Gray to tie in with the softer colour combination.

I have used the scalloped edge die from the coordinating Penned Flower Dies to create the left side edging. The flowers are two of the largest flower bunch, placed together. Here's a look at the Hand-Penned suite. You can buy the suite together (which includes 10% discount on the bundle), the bundle with a 10% discount, or individual components of the suite. All the product links for today's project are at the end of the post.

I have used a couple of other new products on my card too. My sentiment is from a great new stamp set with 11 sentiments, called Inspired Thoughts. I really love the font in this set. I have also used a great new die set called Encirled in Beauty, and there is just a peek of one of the decorative circle shapes poppng out unter the sentiment. This is going to be one of my favourite die sets for sure.

These are the new Encircled in Beauty Dies. The largest die in the set is 9.8 x 9.8cm, so they are perfectly sized for card fronts.

Stampin' Up! Christmas 2020 shaker card using In The Pines bundle.

Hello stampers. Today I am sharing another In The Pines Card. This time I have made a shaker card, and also incorporated the Evergreen Forest 3D Embossing Folder. You can find both of these products in the 2020 August to December mini catalogue. The little snowflake sequins are so cute aren't they?

I love the cool toned colour combination for this card.

One important tip when you are making this card: make sure to cut the window in the top layer before embossing with the Evergreen 3D embossing folder. If you do it the other way around the embossing gets flattened when you cut the window.

Stampin' Up! Beautiful Friendship Single Layer Card

Hello stamping friends.

Today I have a really simple card for you, using the Beautiful Friendship stamp set from the 2019/2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. I grabbed this stamp set when I needed to make a couple of quick birthday cards recently. 

Stampin Up Beautiful Friendship 2019 card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

It's basically a one layer card, except for a small greeting (I used a greeting from Butterfly Wishes stamp set as it was a better size for my card; I do love the greetings which come with the Beautiful Friendship set though). I stamped directly onto Shimmery White cardstock, and cut a 2cm strip from the bottom of the front of the card, and added a strip of Soft Sea Foam patterned DSP (from the subtles 6x6 pack) to the base of the card.

Here's the colour combination I used with the stamping:

The greeting is stamped in Basic Gray, and cut out from one of the dies in the Detailed Bands die set (link at end of post), and I have added some 2019-2021 In Color Faceted Dots for embellishing.

Here's a closer look at the Beautiful Friendship  stamp set (also linked at the end of the post). It really is super easy to use, You just keep on adding layers of flowers and leaves and you are done. The stamp set is Photopolymer so it's super easy to line up as well.

The great news is that this stamp set is just $38 (link at the end of the post), so a great one to add to your collection and a stamp set I think you will reach for again and again.

Art With Heart Team Colour Creations Blog Hop: Pretty Peacock

Colour Creations 300

Jumping into the Colour Creations blog hop this week as we are into week 3 of the 2019 InColours. This week is Pretty Peacock, a beautiful teal blue that I am already totally in love with, as it is so versatile. Today I have teamed it with another new 2019 Incolour, Rococo Rose. I love the fresh vintage look of these colours together. 

Free as a Bird and Pretty Peacock card from 2019 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue by Claire Daly Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

We have lots of beautiful new InColour products besides just the ink and cardstock in the 2019 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue (see all the Pretty Peacock ones in the link below). For this card I have used some of the 6x6 InColour paper stack. There are 40 sheets in the pack in total, with 4 sheets of 2 different double sided designs in each of the 5 new InColours. I particularly love the script pattern. I have also used our new Very Vanilla scalloped lace and some of the Rococo Rose scalloped linen ribbon (which I have cut into strips), and one of the Bird Ballad trinkets in the top left corner.

For the watercolouring of the Free as A Bird image, I have used Gray Granite and Rococo Rose for the birds, Old Olive and Rococo Rose for the leaves and flowers, and Gray Granite and Early Espresso for the branch. I have used a very light watercolour wash of Seaside Spray around the image for the sky.

Now it's time to jump over to Catherine Proctors blog, and see what the other Art With Heart team girls have done with Pretty Peacock this week.

Thanks for stopping by my blog tonight. I will be back in a day or two with some more inspiration for you.

Until then, have a happy and creative week.
