Stampin Up Daffodil Daydream 'Just for You' Card with Step-by-Step Instructions

Hi friends,

I made this Daffodil Daydream card on the weekend and couldn't wait to share it with you. The Daffodil Daydream stamp set and bundle is in the 2022 Stampin' Up! Mini Catalogue, and I have also used the coordinating Daffodil Afternoon DSP. This paper is only available until March 16th as part of Saleabration (earn if FREE with a $90 order before postage).

Step-by-step instructions to make today's card (find any of the products used, by using the links at the end of my post):

  • I started my card with a Petal Pink card base, and then added a layer (10cm x 14.3cm) of Petal Pink which I had embossed with the Timeworn Type embossing folder (such a gorgeous vintage effect). 
  • Next I added a piece of layering vellum 9cm x 12.5cm. This is a new product in the 2022 January Mini catalogue and it's really gorgeous. There are various designs and some are printed in black, some in white. Perfect for adding some additional layers.
  • Then I have added three strips of the Daffodil Afternoon DSP in coordinating patterns. Each strip is 3cm x 13cm.
  • The image is stamped in black Stazon onto Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper. It was cut out using one of the Scalloped Contour dies.
  • To colour the image, I have used my Water Painter, and the following ink colours: Petal Pink, Flirty Flamingo and Polished Pink.
  • My greeting is from Celebrating You stamp set in the 2022 Mini Catalogue, and is stamped in black Stazon. 
  • I finished off my card with some Very Vanilla Scalloped Lace Trim, some Linen Thread and Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots which are a carry over product from last years July to December Mini Catalogue.

Colour Creations Week 34: Petal Pink

Colour Creations 2021 to 2022 logoWelcome to this week's Art with Heart Team Colour Creations Blog Hop. Today we are showcasing Petal Pink, a warm peach pink.

273293232_10161535103403098_6283669330474894085_n

Today's card is inspired by my water bottle! It's a lovely ombre pattern in shades of Petal Pink, Polished Pink and Melon Mambo.

Here is my card. I really love how it turned out, even though I kind of made it up as I went along!

My base card is Petal Pink, and the second layer is Petal Pink embossed with the Timeworn Type embossing folder.

Step by Step Instructions for Stamped Piece

  1. I started with a piece of Shimmery White cardstock and I used my blending brushes to lay down some Polished Pink ink in the bottom half, and Petal Pink ink in the top half, with lots of blending at the intersection.
  2. Next I blended a little Melon Mambo right at the bottom.
  3. I embossed the small floral image from Blessings of Home stamp set (in the 2022 January to June Mini Catalogue) in white over the top of the blended ink.
  4. Next I used a water painter (the fine tip one) to remove a lot of the ink colour from the leaves and petals. You just brush with water and it lightens the ink lots as it dries.
  5. Finally I added additional ink colours onto the image. I used Polished Pink and Rich Razzleberry for the flowers and Old Olive for the leaves.

To finish my card, I mounted the stamped piece onto a piece of Basic Gray cardstock, and tucked one of the Heart and Home Doilies underneath (the Basic Gray one). I adhered this with Dimensionals. I stamped the long birthday sentiment from the Blessings of Home stamp set in Basic Grey onto Shimmery white, cut it into strips and adhered with Stampin' Seal. I finished off with a double bow of Grey Granite bakers twine.

Happy Holly Days Stampin Up Christmas Card

Heart of Christmas Header 2021

Hello friends. Time for another Christmas blog hop with the Art with Heart team. How is your Christmas card making going? There is plenty of time to get started and I hope the ideas we present each week are inspiring you.

Today's card features the cute little bird from Happy Holly Days stamp set, which is in the Stampin Up July to December mini catalogue. This stamp set also can be purchased in a bundle with a coordinating Holly Border Punch, but I have just used the stamp set today. View the punch and the products I have used today using the links at the end of the post.

Happy Holly Days 2021 Stampin Up Christmas Card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator, Melbourne Australia.

I have watercoloured the bird, holly and berries using water painters, ink from the inside of my ink pad lids, and Fluid 100 watercolour paper. This set doesn't have any dies, so I fussy cut which was pretty easy using my paper snips. I attached some of the gold fabric holly leaves to the underside of the coloured holly, and then attached that all to the bird with a Dimensional, and the bird to a die cute Ornate Layers shape (in Very Vanilla). My base card is Garden Green, followed by a Crumb Cake layer which has been embossed with the Timeworn Type embossing folder.

My sentiment is from another set in the mini catalogue called Peaceful Deer. With all that has happened in the world this year, I really love this sentiment. Here's a closer look at the Happy Holly Days stamp set.

Stampin' Up! Forever Blossoms, for Colour Creations: Flirty Flamingo

Colour Creations 2021 to 2022 logoToday the Art with Heart Colour Creations girls are are playing with Flirty Flamingo, which is one of our mid pinks in the brights colour group.  Flirty F

I have a water-coloured card today, using the Forever Blossoms stamp set from the 2021 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. This is such a pretty blossom image don't you think? I have coloured the blossoms in Blushing Bride and Flirty Flamingo, which I think is more the colours of nectarine or plum blossom.

Using die cut shapes can really elevate your card design. I have used Ornate Layers Dies to cut out the water-coloured image, and the gorgeous Encircled in Beauty dies for the Flirty Flamingo piece underneath. You can view all the products I have used in today's card using the links at the end of the post. My base card is Gray Granite and I have stamped the same image on the top left and bottom right, in Gray Granite ink.

The sentiment I have used is from Best Year stamp set, which is also in the current Annual Catalogue. I stamped it onto a scrap of Fluid 100 Watercolour paper using Crumb Cake ink, trimmed it and used the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch on the end. I also lightly sponged the edges of the sentiment label with Crumb Cake ink using a sponge dauber. Champagne Rhinestones finish off my card.

Here's another look at my colour combination for today.

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.
