Today I wanted to show you a beautiful new embossing folder from the 2022 Annual Catalogue. It's called Painted Posies and it's a 3D 6x6" folder. I have used it on this card.
The pattern is so pretty and gives a crisp imprint on the Melon Mambo cardstock. I love how the embossing foliage and flowers climb up the card. Embossing is a great way to add a wow to a card without a lot of expense.
The stamped panel on this one is from Artistically Inked. The flower is stamped in Polished Pink and the leaves and sentiment in Old Olive. The die cut shape is from Stylish Shapes dies which are new this year. I used the masking technique, shown in the video below, to stamp the leaves behind the flower.
Here's a masking video I made recently, which shows 6 different masking techniques, and 5 cards, including this one.
I hope you like today's card. You can find all of the products I have used in my online store, or the paper copy of the Annual Catalogue. You can either order online, or direct with me via email, phone or text (you can read about three ways to shop with me HERE).

Hi friends. Today I am back with 2 more Daffodil cards, both Mothers Day cards using the gorgeous Daffodil Daydream bundle again. I also have some pictures which show you how to put the Daffodil Dies together.
Here's my first card.
It's very simple because the die-cut daffodil does all the work. There are 3 different daffodils that can be made up with the Daffodil Dies. Here are the diagrams showing how you make up each one. You can vary up the colours to whites and pinks too.
For the rest of the card, I have used the Saleabration Daffodil Afternoon DSP (only available as a FREE pick with a $90 order up until March 16th, so don't miss out!) and the gorgeous soft white frayed ribbon. My greeting is from Celebrating You stamp set, and I have punched the ends of the label using the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch. See these products in my online store using the links at the end of the post.
Here's another look at the free Daffodil Daydream DSP which coordinates with this bundle. Only available to earn until March 16th.
For my second card, I have used a piece of the paper as the focus to my card. This card was so simple but I love how it turned out.
My base card is Petal Pink and I have a popped a very thin mat of Flirty Flamingo cardstock around the black patterned layer. to add a pop of colour. The greeting is from the Daffodil Daydream stamp set, and this time I have used the Double Oval punch. I've also popped some of our gorgeous Brass Butterflies on this card as an embellishment.

Hello friends. Today I have a card I created over the weekend while having a play with the new Stampin' Up! ink blending brushes that were introduced in the 2021 January to June mini catalogue. I've created a birthday card using the Dragonfly Garden bundle (which includes the Dragonflies Punch).
I'm really happy how this card turned out. I found the blending brushes GREAT to use. This wasn't my first experience with blending brushes as I had purchased another brand prior to Stampin' Up! releasing their own. The Stampin' Up! ones are a great price point in comparison (quite a bit cheaper) and comparable (if not better) in both ease of use and result on our Basic White cardstock. I was able to get a really great smoothly blended result.
My blended colours are Soft Sea Foam (centre), Pool Party (sky) and Mint Macaron (lower third). I also used Just Jade cardstock for my base card and one layer of the dragonflies, and Shaded Spruce as my ink colour for the stamped dragonfly.
I have a video to show you how I created the blended ink background.
Here's the measurements, and steps for the rest of this card:
The blended background piece is 9cm x 13.3cm, and the Pool Party mat layer is 9.4cm x 13.7cm. The base card is a standard C6 top folding card in Just Jade.
Once I made the background with the blending brushes, I used Mint Macaron ink to overstamp the foliage, and Pool Party ink to stamp the dragonflies in the top right hand corner.
I stamped two dragonflies from the Dragonfly garden stamp set using Shaded Spruce ink. One was stamped onto Just Jade cardstock, and one was stamped onto Whisper White cardstock.
I punched these Dragonflies out with the Dragonflies punch, along with one of the smaller butterflies in Just Jade.
I adhered the Just Jade Dragonflies directly to the blended background using Stampin' Seal.
I coloured the other Dragonfly in with light Mint Macaron Stampin' Blends and then adhered it over the large Just Jade Dragonfly with Dimensionals (just in the centre so the wings can be lifted a bit). I then added a few Rhinestone Jewels in the centre.
I adhered this whole piece to the Pool Party layer with Stampin' Seal, and then tied a double layer of linen thread around the bottom (about 2 cm from the base), tying in a bow on the left side.
I wanted this card for a birthday card, so I have the birthday sentment stamp in Peaceful Moments. I stamped that in basic black onto Basic White, and the overstamped the foliage stamp in Mint Macaron (stamped off once). I cut the greeting out with one of the Tasteful Labels dies whch has fine stitching around the outside.

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!
I've made a video tutorial to show you how this one is made.
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.
