4 Ways to use Delicata Metallic Inks on Your Stampin' Up! projects.

I am totally LOVING that Stampin' Up! are selling the Delicata metallic ink pads in the 2019 Holiday Catalogue. These are the BEST metallic inks on the market in my opinion. 

Some of the featured of these inks are:

  • Great lustre and shine that wont fade over time
  • Acid free and archival
  • Water based
  • Air dries in 10 minutes with no smudging at all once dry

We carry three colours of the full size ink pad and reinker :

Here's what they look like.

They are perfect for a range of techniques, and I have put together a video showing you how they stamp on a variety of cardstock types, as well as some techniques you can use with them on your Stampin' Up! projects. 

 

Here's a closer look at the cards I have shown in the video (the Seaside Spray reindeer card was featured yesterday in my Heart of Christmas week 4 post, and that includes step by step instructions to make that card).

In the watercolouring section of the video, I featured this Good Morning Magnolia card.

Video on blog. Stampin' Up! Good Morning Magnolia stamp set watercoloured and highlighted with Delicata metallic ink. Card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

Here's a list of the Stampin' Up! products I have used to make this card (I stamped the image in Dove Grey Stazon. Unfortunately Stampin' Up! don't carry that yet, but I love it for watercolouring when I want a lighter edge effect).

  • Stamps: Good Morning Magnolia
  • Cardstock: Shimmery White and Rococo Rose
  • Ink: Petal Pink & Rococo Rose (petals), Smoky Slate (around the image), Mossy Meadow (leaves) and Celestial Copper (centre and highlights)
  • Tools: Aquapainter
  • Embellishments: Pearl Basic Jewels, Rococo Rose Scalloped Linen Ribbon, Linen Thread

The other card I featured was this one, showcasing the stamping and misting using Celestial Copper. The shimmery mist of Celestial Copper on the Early Espresso and Very Vanilla cardstock is much easier to see in the video close ups.

Video on blog. Stampin Up Very Versailles (2019 Annual) and Beauty and Joy (2019 Holiday) with Delicata mettalic ink used two wats.

Here's a list of the Stampin' Up! products I have used on this card (you can see the links for these products at the end of the post):

  • Stamps: Very Versailles and Beauty and Joy (Holiday Catalogue), Butterfly Wishes (greeting; from Annual Catalogue)
  • Ink: Early Espresso, Garden Green and Celestial Copper
  • Cardstock: Very Vanilla and Early Espresso
  • Embellishments: Linen thread
  • Tools / other: Stampin' Spritzer, Isocol (rubbing alcohol)

These stamp pads are so awesome and will really add extra wow to your projects, Grab them in my online store using the links below.

Heart of Christmas Week 4 - Sharing the Joy of Christmas Creativity.

Welcome back to the Art With Heart Stampin' Up! Team Heart of Christmas Blog Hop for week 4. Our aim is to spread the joy of Christmas creating as far and wide as we can.

Heart of christmas 2019 full size

This week I am all about silver and shimmer!

Step by step instructions on blog, Detailed Deer dies, woodland embossing folder 2019 Christmas card by Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

This was actually a super fast card to make! Here's what I did:

  1. Prepared a top folding standard C6 size (1/2 A4 cut vertically and folded) using Seaside Spray cardstock.
  2. Cut a second layer of Seaside spray cardstock 9.8cm x 14cm (o4 3 & 13/16 x 6.5 inches)
  3. Emboss this layer using the Woodland embossing folder. 
  4. Using a sponge dauber and your Silvery Shimmer Delicata ink pad, sponge silver metallic ink over the embossed parts of the tree and branches. Put aside to dry for 10-15 minutes. (Tip: The manufacturer recommends not speeding up the drying time with heat, as it diminishes the lustre of the stamped image). Once dry, adhere to the card base using Multipurpose Glue or Snail.
  5. Die cut a nested label using whisper white cardstock. I have used the second largest one.
  6. Stamp a greeting bottom left side of the label, using the Silvery Shimmer Delicata ink. Set aside to dry for 10 minutes.
  7. Die cut the deer shape from Detailed Deer (in the Annual Catalogue). Adhere with Dimensionals onto the nested label (you can also add a glue dot to the antlers). Add three small rhinestones around the deer.
  8. Adhere this whole nested piece to the centre of the card using Dimensionals.

I'm obsessed with the Delicata inks right now.  Hands down the BEST metallic inks I have ever used. Air dries in 10-15 minutes, no smudging and has great lustre. It would be pretty quick and easy to whip up a batch of these Christmas cards too.

Stamping with Shimmer Paint: Stampin' Up! Everything Rosy Product Medley

Today I have a couple of cards for you featuring stamping with the Rose Gold shimmer paint in the Stampin' Up! May 2019 Everything is Rosy product medley. This gorgeous medley of products is STILL available to purchase but ONLY until the end of May, or until it's sold out, whichever comes first.

Find the Everything is Rosy Medley HERE in the online store.

Last week I showed you several cards and a scrapbook page using the Everything is Rosy dies, die cuts and Designer Paper. We also used the stamps with ink and embossing.  Today, I want to show you two cards I have made using some stamping with the shimmer paint which is included in the medley.

Stampin Up Everything is Rosy 2019 card including stampin with rose gold shimmer paint. Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

For my first card, I have stamped onto the Pretty Peacock (a new 2019 InColour) cardstock using the small leaf stamp in the Everything is Rosy stamp set. I like the effect this creates with various shades of the Pretty Peacock showing through. The process of stamping with the shimmer paint is super easy. I just paint the stamp with the paint using one of my Aquapainters, and stamp! To clean the paint of the stamp I used a baby wipe and rinsed straight away in running water. I rinsed my Aquapainter under running water too. It was super easy. 

I have used Rococo Rose as my pink this time (another new 2019 InColour) to soften the colours. The rose gold shimmer paint actually coordinates really well with Rococo Rose. I have added some of the shimmer paint onto the die cut flowers and die cut some leaf branches in rose gold to coordinate.

In this next card, I have stamped the two different leaf images onto my Shimmery White cardstock layer. It's so hard to really pick up how beautiful the stamped shimmer paint looks in real life. You will see in this image I have 'stamped off' with some of the images. This was just stamping again straight after the first stamping.

I have used Pretty Peacock and Rococo Rose, two of the new 2019-2021 InColours again . You will also spot some other new products coming on June 4th with the new 2016 Annual Catalogue. I have used the Stitched Nested Labels (finding this shape really versatile and great for layering), the Woven Threads Designer Series Paper (which coordinates with ALL the new InColours), and the new GORGEOUS scalloped linen ribbon which comes in all the 5 new InColours.

I hope you like today's cards. If you like the Everything is Rosy product medley, don't forgot to grab it it in the online store, as it's only available in May, or while stocks last, whichever comes first.

See you back here tomorrow night for our team Colour Creations blog hop.

I have decided to showcase the beautiful Country Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, which is one of the new level 1 Saleabration items added on February 15th. My card layout is quite simple, as I wanted the focus to be on the embossing folder.

Stampin Up Country Floral Embossing Folder, Story Book Punch and  Strong and Beautiful Stamp Set. Card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Melbourne Australia.

I embossed a piece of thick Whisper White cardstock which I had spritzed first as this gives a deeper impression). Once dry, I sponged on ink with a sponge dauber in a circular motion. I used Blushing Bride ink for the flowers and Pear Pizazz for foliage. I like the subtle and imperfect effect this technique gives. I also like that you get a variation in colour within the sponging, as this really shows the different dimensions in the folder.

I trimmer the embossed piece down to 9cm x 13cm and then attached it to a very thin mat of Pear Pizazz (I allow 3mm extra for this, so my Pear Pizazz piece was 9.3cm x 13.3 cm). I then mounted this piece onto a standard C6 sized Blushing Bride card.

For my greeting, I have used a new punch which is available to purchase in my online store from tomorrow. It's called the Story Label Punch. It fit's so many of our sentiment sets and I really like the interesting shape which lends itself to lots of layering opportunities. To make the mat for the punched shape, I cut two extra shapes in Blushing Bride and cut one of these in half vertically and one horizontally. I then attached each half onto the back (the side without the stamping) slightly overlapping the white punched shape. When you have attached all 4 pieces, all edges have a nice border.

To finish my card, I attached a piece of metallic ribbon, which is actually Petal Pink, but works fine. I attached the stamped and edged shape over the top of this with Dimensionals. This card will now be going off to my Mum for her birthday next month.

I've also completed a second version of this card. This time I have embossed a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock and have used crumb cake ink to sponge over the embossing with a Stampin' Sponge.

I hve used Fresh Fig and Soft Suede as my other colours. For the greeting, I did some layering with the Story Label Punch to show another way to use it. I have layered a 1.5" punched circl in Fresh Fig behind the Story Label punched piece, and then a strip of wood grain paper and a greeting. The greetng and the speckled stamping on the Very Vanilla cardstock were both from Beauty Abounds stamp set. I must use those bronze Leaves Trinkets (from Annual Catalogue) more often as I love them.
