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!

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.

Stampin Up Evergreen 3D Embossing Folder with In the Pines Bundle

Hello stampers,

Today I am sharing a 2020 Christmas card I created using the inked embossing folder technique with the Stampin Up Evergreen 3D emboosing folder. I also have used one of the. dies from the In the Pines Bundle. This makes 8 Stampin' Up! In the Pine Christmas Card Ideas to share with you.

2020 Stampin Up Christmas Card using Evergreen 3D Embossing Folder, In the Pines Bundle, inked embossing folder technique. Card by Claire Daly Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

For the embossed piece, I used the inked embossing folder technique (I started with Pear Pizazz cardstock and inked with Mossy Meadow ink).

Here's a video I did for my YouTube channel which shows this technique.

Once I had completed the embossing, I trimmed the piece to 10cm x 14.3cm, inked the edges with Mossy Meadow ink and then mounted onto a standard C6 cardstock base. I die cut two trees from the brushed Metallic cardstock, using the Pine Woods Dies, which are Part of the In The Pines bundle. My greeting was one I had sitting on my desk from another project (it's from Poinsettia Petals) but there are lovely greetings in the In the Pines Bundle which could be used as well. It's stamped in Mossy Meadow ink onto Shimmery White cardstock. I added three of the clear and gold gems from Wonderful Gems to finish my card. I also tied a double strand of linen thread around the top of the card and tied a bow.

Stampin' Up! Under My Umbrella stamp set coloured with Stampin' Blends. Video Tutorial.

Hello stamping friends. 

Today I have a card idea for friends. My stamp set is Under My Umbrella from the 2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue, and it has a coordinating punch. I have coloured the images with Stampin' Blends and have used a little sponging too. It's going to rain a bit this week in Melbourne (I actually love listening to the rain though, and it's great for the garden too) so this is an appropriate stamp set for sure.

I've put together a video for you showing the techniques I used to colour and blend with Stampin' Blends, and how to make the easy cloud background.

My colour palette was nice an bright and featured two of the Stampin' Up! 2020-22 InColours.

The cloud effect is super easy to make, and you don't need anything special. I show you how in the video.

Today I have a card which would be perfect for the men in your life, someone about to go travelling, or even a graduate. It's a very cool Triangle Fancy Fold where you can make two cards to an A4 piece of card. I have used the World of Good Product Suite from the 2020-21 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue.

The embellishments and stamped and die cut elements add lots of texture and interest to the card. The rectangle stamped panel folds up with the top triangle piece.

Stampin' Up! Mountain Air stamp set with ink blending for the sky and moon.

Today I have another version on an ink blended card I showed you last month. This one has different colours and I really like how they work together. It uses the Stampin' Up! Mountain Air stamp set from the 2020 Annual Catalogue and I have used Stampin' Up! sponge brayers to create the ink blending effect. There's also a bit of the Very Versailes Stamp Set in there, again from the 2020 Annual Catalogue.

I've created a video to show you how I achieved the ink blending and moon on this one.

I just love the Stampin' Up! Sponge Brayers for ink blending. They are really affordable and for just $14, you get two handles and 4 replaceable sponge heads.

My colours for the brayering are Rich Razzleberry, Mango Melody and So Saffron. My base card is Crumb Cake, and I added a thin mat of Basic Black around the stamped layer.

To embellish my card, I have used Gilded Gems.  My sentiment and the stamping on the banner under the sentiment, are both from Very Versailles stamp set. I also used this for the leaves and branches at the top of the card.
