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.

Free PDF Tutorial for a Stampin' Up! Triangle Fancy Fold World of Good Suite / Beautiful World Bundle Card

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.

Here's a closer look at the two stamp sets I have used today. First up, Very Versailles.Stampin Up Very Versailles stamp set. Available in my online store in Australia from Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

Then Mountain Air. This stamp set also has coordinating dies, and you can also stamp the solid for each mountain range shape using the reverse of the stamps. It's a fabulous set.

Stampin' Up! Inked Embossing Folder Technique Video

Hello friends,

Today I have a Stampin' Up! technique video to share with you. It is a simple but really effective technique called Inked Embossing Folders. I have used the technique to create this birthday card using the Dandelions 3D embossing folder from the 2020-21 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue.

Stampin Up Inked Embossing Folder Technique Video by Claire Daly Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia. Uses Dandelions Embossing Folder 2020.

In the video I have also used two other embossing folders, to show different effects you can get. The other folders I used were the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder, and the Evergreen Forest 3D embossing folder. Stay tuned for some Stampin' Up! card ideas using those folders in the coming week.

To finish my card, I slightly offset a piece of Purple Posy cardstock, as the second layer on the Crumb Cake base card. I then added the Seaside Spray embossed piece on top.

I have added lots of texture (like I like to do) by trimming some Purple Posy scalloped linen trim and some Very Vanilla scalloped lace horizontally. I also added a double layer of linen thread and tied a bow.

Ink Blending with Stampin Up Sponge Brayers and reverse watercolour technique with Celebrate Sunflowers

Hey there,

Today I am going to show you how to use Stampin' Up! Spronge Brayers for ink blending to create an ombre background (and they are only great value, $14 for 4 heads and 2 handles). I also have another  technique I am not even sure of the proper name for (if there is even one), but which is simple and hardly needs any supplies for, so I wanted to show you. I'm going to call it reverse watercolouring.

Here's the video tutorial I made to demonstrate this technique and card.

I'm really loving the colour Bumble Bee. It's such a vibrant yellow, but also warm and welcoming.
