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.

Faux patina stamping technique using Stampin' Up! Parisian Flourish embossing folder

Hello crafters.

A few weeks ago I made a card front faux patina piece for one of my subscriber only Make it With Claire free weekly tutorials (if you missed this one and would like it, there's instructions at the end of the catalogue how to get it).

I had half the panel piece left over, so I made another card using some bits and pieces from the Ornate Border Dies (a pre-release product on sale now from the 2020/21 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue), the Stitched Label Dies and the Parisian Dies.

The faux patina technique is so great for vintage style cards, so the greeting from Woven Heirlooms stamp set was perfect to use on the Stitched Label. The copper rose border piece was cut from the new Ornate Border Dies (new product available now!), and I also cut the edge on the pretty peacock piece using those dies.

Today I am showing you some cards I made for one of my free weekly PDF tutorials, It's a simple Paper Piecing technique using the Beautiful Moments stamp set.

Beautiful Moments Paper Piecing technique cards by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

The beautiful moments stamp set if perfect for the paper piecing technique as our floral papers (these ones are from Best Dressed) look fabulous as dressed. I have also added a bit of colouring to the hair using a Crumb Cake ink pad and Blender Pen.

For the greeting I have used the Itty Bitty stamp set. I love this stamp set because there are a whole heap of greetings which all fit in the Classic Label punch. I know if ever I need a small greeting, I will usually find it in this stamp set.

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.

Ink

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.
