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.

Quick and Easy Stampin' Up! Easter Basket

Hello crafty people.

I made this basket for the March Creative 8 Wow Tutorial Package.

DIY Easter Basket Template by Claire Daly Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

The Coastal Weave embossing folder gave a great texture to the basket sides, and the Fable Friends stamp set is perfect for making Easter Projects. I have watercoloured the bunny using Blender Pens and Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper.

It probably comes as no surprise to you that with social isolation in place, the basket is no longer full of eggs.

Although the tutorial for this package is part of a paid package, I have a similar project from quite a few years ago with the same template and which I am happy for you to download for free. This would be a great project to make with the kids or to leave outside for grandchildren to collect if you are in isolation.

Step by step instructions for snowglobe cards using Stampin' Up! Still Scenes bundle

Hello lovely stampers.

Back with the step by step instructions for the snow globe cards. A little bit later than planned, but with hubby away at his annual Bathurst holiday, Mum's taxi has been on extra shifts. Plus it's Spring here in Melbourne so lots of lovely fun to be had in the garden on the weekend too. Have planted the veggie gardens and have some lovely petunia seedlings to go in pots too. I love Spring and I love flowers. If you follow my Instagram, you will know I love taking pictures of my flowers as well as.  It's tome to talk about cards now though, particularly these lovely snowblobe cards using Stampin' Up! Still Scenes bundle from the 2019 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue.

Still Scenes

I showed you one version of these cards last week. This week I am back with two more versions, along with step by step instructions for assembling them. My first card uses the gorgeous baby and mama bear in the die set.

They are just too cute don't you think? I also layered some of the trees in there cut from the DSP (I adhered to a layer of cardstock for a bit more stiffness).

The second version of the card is the one I did the step by step instructions for. For this card I have stamped the image and coloured it using watercolour pencils. I stamped two of the images and  cut the cottage area out and popped it up for some dimension.

Stampin' Up! Still Scenes snow globe cards (2019 Holiday Catalogue). Card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

Here's what you need to build the snow globe cards:

  • Still Scenes Bundle
  • Snow Globe Shaker Domes
  • Snowflake Sequins
  • Christmas patterned paper (I used Wrapped in Plaid from the Holiday Catalogue).
  • Base card (I have used Cherry Cobbler)
  • Cardstock to stamp the image on (I have used Shimmery White)
  • Watercolour pencils and Blender Pen for the colouring
  • Pool Party ink pad and a Stampin' Sponge or Sponge Dauber.
  • Mini Dimensional foam dots
  • Coordinating cardstock for the base of the dome (I have used Crimb Cake and Copper foil)
  • Crumb Cake cardstock for the greeting piece
  • Stazon Black ink for stamping the image
  • Early Espresso ink for the greeting.

Here's the steps:

1. Cut a standard top folding C6 card in Cherry Cobbler plus a layer of Cherry Cobbler 10cm 0r 3 & 15/16 inches x 14.3cm or 5 & 5/8 inches, plus a layer of patterned paper the same size (10cm x 14.3cm). Attached the patterned paper and Cherry Cobbler layers together.

2. Using the globe shaped die from the Still Scenes bundle, cut one from the top layer (the top of the snow globe cut out piece on mine is 1.6cm or 5/8 inch from the top of the layer) , and another from a peiece of Shimmery White cardstock.

Stampin' Up! Still Scenes snow globe card step by step instructions (2019 Holiday Catalogue) by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

3. Stamp the cottage image in black Stazon onto the Shimmery White globe piece, and also onto a scrap of Shimmery White.

Stampin' Up! Still Scenes snow globe card step by step instructions (2019 Holiday Catalogue) by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

4. Colour the images using Watercolour Pencils and a Blender Pen. Colour the full image except cottage on the die cut piece, just the cottage and side plant on the scrap piece. I used the following colours: Shaded Spruce, Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green, Crushed Curry and Early Espresso. 

5. Cut the cottage and side plant (on left) from the scrap piece and layer them over the die cut image with mini Dimensionals. 

6. Sponge Pool Party ink around the outside.

7. PLace some Snail Adhesive as a guide and use the top layer as a placement guide (don't adhere the top layer yet though) so that you can adher the coloured image piece to the base card.

8. Get one of the  Snow Globe Shaker Domes and remove the adhesive on one side - the side where the dome is shaped upwards. 

9. Place the dome through the top layer and it will adhere to the edges of the cardstock around the globe to hold it in place. Leave the backing adhesive in place for now.

10. Use an Embossing Buddy to rub against the inside of the snow globe dome piece (this prevents the sequins from sticking to the inside of the dome too much).

Stampin' Up! Still Scenes snow globe card step by step instructions (2019 Holiday Catalogue) by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

11. Sprinkle sequins over the image on the base card, keeping them away from the edges.

12. Remove the backing adhesive from the snow dome, and also place Snail Adhesive around the edges of the top card layer. Place that over the top of the the base card layer so your dome part is complete.

13. Cut a snow dome base piece in Crumb Cake cardstock, and a decorative layering piece from Copper foil cardstock.

Stampin' Up! Still Scenes snow globe card step by step instructions (2019 Holiday Catalogue) by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.
14. Layer and adhere these underneath the snow globe.

15. Tie a linen thread bow and adhere with a glue dot to the right side of the base of the dome. 

16. Stamp your greeting onto a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock (in Early Espresso ink)  and trim to size, then cut banner ends (you can either use the Banner Triple Punch to do this, or freehand. The Banner Triple Punch cuts banner ends in 3 sizes and is awesome!!).

You are done!
