Stampin' Up! Grassy Grove Bundle Thinking of You Card

Hello friends. Today I wanted to show and give you step by step instructions for a handmade thinking of you card that I made with the Grassy Grove bundle from the 2022 Stampin' Up! January to June Mini Catalogue. I have also used the Saleabration Special Moments sentiment set. You can get this awesome set FREE with a $180 order until March 16th. I'll give you more details about Saleabration later in the post.

Here's today's card. I really love how it turned out. I have only used the Grove dies part of the bundle here, but I know I will use both parts of the bundle, so I wanted to save the 10% on both (yes demonstrators get these discounts too, as well as an extra 20-25% off at least!).

How beautiful is that paper behind the die cut? That's the amazing New Horizons 6x6" paper pack (find it HERE in the online store). There are 12 gorgeous watercolour like landscape scenes. It's soooooooo beautiful!

Step by Step Instructions for Grassy Grove Card (all products used are linked at the end of the post)

  1. Start with a side folding standard size Crumb Cake card base (for Australia that's 1/2 an A4 sheet cut vertically and folded / burnished with bone folder in the middle.
  2. Cut a piece of Evening Evergreen cardstock 1/4 cm smaller on all sides than the base card (for Australia the measurement for the Evergreen Cardstock would be 10cm x 14.3cm).
  3. Centre the large grove die onto the Evergreen layer and die-cut. 
  4. Insert the die cut piece into the Bark embossing folder and run through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss machine again. Make sure you do the embossing last, otherwise the die-cutting will flatten the embossing.
  5. Cut a piece of the New Horizons DSP 1/4 cm smaller on all sides than the Evening Evergreen piece (for Australia that would be 9.5cm x 15.8 cm). Attach this to the base card with Multipurpose Glue or Stampin' Seal.
  6. Attach the die-cut and embossed Evergreen Elegance card over the top of the New Horizons DSP using Multipurpose Glue or Stampin' Seal.
  7. Cut the two deer from a scrap of Crumb Cake cardstock and use a sponge dauber to apply some Crumb Cake ink to the very edges of each deer.
  8. Attach the deer to the left of the grove opening as shown (I used Dimensionals to attach)
  9. Stamp the Thinking of You sentiment from the Special Moments stamp set (pictured and linked below), in Evening Evergreen onto a Shimmery White cardstock strip 1.8cm (just under 3/4" wide). Using this width allows you to punch the ends using the amazing Lovely Labels Pick a Punch (pictured and linked below).
  10. Attach the sentiment to the card with Dimensionals and then attach a double bow of linen thread.

Stampin Up Australia: Cinnamon Cider Thinking of You Card using Quiet Meadow Bundle

Colour Creations 2021 to 2022 logo

Hello friends. Today I am participating in my Art with Heart Team Colour Creations Blog Hop. I'm so luck to have a team full of amazing creative people who love to create and share with each other, and who jump in and run activities like this for our team. It's so fun! 

This week's colour is Cinnamon Cider, one of the 2020 InColors. I really love this gorgeous mid brown colour. It really does remind me of a comforting warm drink.

Here is a Thinking of You card I came up with for today's challenge. It was made much easier by using one of the Gingerbread and Peppermint Memories and More Cards in the new Stampin' Up! Australia July to December Mini Catalogue. The rest of my card uses the Quiet Meadow Bundle from the 2020 Annual Catalogue.

Stampin Up Quiet Meadow Thinking of You Card. 2021 card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

I used Early Espresso ink to stamp one of the stamps from the Quiet Meadow stamp set onto the left of the label shape on the pre-printed base card. This stamp set coordinates well with the distressed vintage look of the base card I think.

I die cut some of the stems from the Meadow Dies, in Crumb Cake and Night of Navy and arranged these a little to the right of the stamping. I adhered them in a couple of places with glue dots.

To finish off my card, I stamped the sentiment in Early Espresso and die cut it with the label shape in the Meadow Dies. Before I adhered it with Dimensionals, I coiled a little Natural Linen Thread underneath (I adhered this with some tape).

Stampin' Up! Masculine Card with Mountain Air with Cajun Craze

Colour Creations 2021 to 2022 logo

Hello friends. This week the Colour Creations ladies in the Art with Heart Team are playing with Cajun Craze. This is one of my least used Stampin' Up! colours, so it definitely was a challenge. Once I got the idea though, away I went.

119790o01

I wanted to create a card for a very sick relative overseas. We enjoyed time together on their trip to Australia several years ago, so I wanted to come up with a card that let him know I was thinking of him at this very hard time, and that perhaps reminded him a little of Australia. Cajun Craze definitely is the colour of some of the Australian outback, and the Kimberley region especially.

Masculine Thinking of You card using Stampin Up Mountain Air and Ink Blending Technique. Card by Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

I have used the Mountain Air stamp set from the 2021 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue, to create several layers of mountains by stamping in Early Espresso onto Cajun Craze and die cutting with the coordinating Majestic Mountain dies. I love the dimension you can achieve with these two products. The trees are from the same stamp set and dies, and my greeting from the Quiet Meadow stamp set.

I adhered these pieces onto a layer of shimmery white which I had applied ink using my blending brushes. The lowest area near the mountain range is Calypso Coral, then I blended in some Pool Party, Bermuda Bay, and lastly some Misty Moonlight at the very top and edges. The birds from the stamp set were stamped in Misty Moonlight too.

I then mounted this piece onto some Cajun Craze cardstock, and an Early Espresso base card. I'm really pleased how this card turned out. There was a lot of love put into it, and I think it looks quite peaceful. You can view all of the products I have used in this card using the links at the end of the post.

Stampin' Up! Quiet Meadow Thinking of You Card

Hello crafty friends.

Today I have another card using the Quiet Meadow bundle from the Stampin' Up! Australia 2021 Annual Catalogue. I love this bundle, probably one of my favourites in the Annual Catalogue.

Stampin Up Quiet Meadows Thinking of You Card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

I started with a base of Soft Succulent cardstock and embossed it with the Pretty Flower embossing folder. The various wildflowers were die cut from Fluid 100 watercolour paper and then I used my Aquapainters to colour them. I used Soft Succulent ink on the stems and leaves, and Polished Pink for the flowers. I tied them together with some white bakers twine and then adhere to the card in a couple of places with glue dots. Finally I stamped my sentiment from Quiet Meadows stamp set in Soft Succulent onto Basic White cardstock and cut it out using one of the dies from the Ornate Labels Dies.

Stampin Up Thinking of You Card: Quiet Meadow Bundle & Collage Stamping Technique

Hello friends. Today I have a 'thinking of you' card using the new Quiet Meadow bundle in the Stampin Up Australia 2021 Annual Catalogue. We will also be using a stamping technique called collage stamping.

Stampin Up Quiet Meadow used with Collage Stamping Technique. 2021 card by Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia
"Collage" was originally a French word, derived from the word coller, meaning "to paste." The stamping interpretation of that is to combine a variety of themed stampings, balanced in both colour and composition. That's easy to do when you have multiple coordinating stamps in a set, like we do with the Stampin' Up! sets.

Quiet Meadow Stampin Up 2021 Bundle. Available from my online store.

Here's a look at the complete card. The light has caught the Rose Gold Metallic Specialty Paper so it looks like two different colours, but it isn't. This paper is really pretty.

Meadows metallic paper 1

I started with a base of Crumb Cake cardstock. I have stamped one layer of the collage stamping in Crumb Cake ink. This is just basically layering the stamps to give the coverage and composition you want. I also used  Early Espresso to add another layer on the collage, and carried that colour through to the stamping on the sentiment.
