Stampin' Up! Prized Peony with a Video Tutorial

Hello lovely friends,

It's good to be back. Thanks for being patient while I settled my teens back into 'real' school following home schooling and got the family back into some type of routine. It's been so hard to have routine for any length of time this year hasn't it? 2020 has been quite the year so far. I hope you and your family are safe and well.

Today I wanted to blog one of my subscriber tutorial cards so I can pin it onto Pinterest boards. The Prized Peony set is a beautiful NEW Stampin' Up! stamp set and bundle from the 2020 Annual Catalogue.

Here's a look at this beautiful Prized Peony stamp set (Find it HERE in my online store).

I wanted to colour it in a really vintage way, so a bit messy with lots of variation in colour, and some ink splatters. I created a video to show you how I did the colouring.

This type of watercolouring won't be for everyone, but I personally love how it turned out, and like having no dark lines from stamping the image.

Here's the colour combination I used:

Stampin' Up! Watercoloured Beautiful Moments stamp set with Ornate Garden Suite.

Hello stamping friends,

Today I have a pretty straightforward card for you, but I am really pleased how this one turned out. I have combined a watercoloured image from the Beautiful Moments stamp set, with other elements from the Ornate Garden Suite. All of the products used in today's card are current products available now (and carrying over to the new 2020 Annual Catalogue).

Stampin Up Beautiful Moments & Ornate Garden Suite. 2020 Annual Catalogue card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Melbourne Australia.Watercoloured.

I started by emossing my Blushing Bride base card with the Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder. Such a beautiful folder that adds a real wow to a card. The Crumb Cake later is one of the Ornate Layers dies. The watercolour paper is sized 5.5cm x 9cm to fit perfectly into the frame. I stamped and coloured the image before adhering the Watercolour paper to to the frame. I stamped in Jet Black Stazon and then watercoloured with an Aquapen for the dress (in Rococo Rose) and hair / arms (in Crumb Cake). I then used a Blender Pen to colour the grass in Old Olive, and the flowers in Highland Heather. I used a Stampin' Sponge to lightly sponge Seaside Spray in the top half around the image (for sky) and inked the edges with Crumb Cake ink using a sponge dauber. Then I adhered the Watercolour Paper to the Crumb Cake decorative layer and adhered the whole piece to the card front using Dimensionals.

Stampin Up Beautiful Moments & Ornate Garden Suite. 2020 Annual Catalogue card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Melbourne Australia.

To finish my card I have used a greeting from Itty Bitty Greetings, all of which fit perfectly in the Classic Label Punch (I shortened the length of the punched shape by turning the punch over once I had punched the shape, pushing the end through and cutting another end closer to the greeting. I adhered that with some mini Dimensionals, and added three small adhesive pearl jewels.

Stampin Up Pop up Happy Birthday to You Saleabration 2020 Card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

Before die cutting, I stamped 2 images of the cake with flowers onto Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper using Saddle Brown Stazon. I then coloured the flowers on one image with an Aquapainter and the ink from inside stamp pad lids for Blushing Bride, Rococo Rose and Rich Razzleberry. The I have used Old Olive on the leaves. On the other image I coloured the cake using Crumb Cake. Champagne foil is used for the die cut cake base, and papers from the Subtle 6x6" paper pack for the background papers. My base card is crumb cake. You can find all the details of products in the links at the end of the post.

Sahara Sand Painted Poppies Congratulations card.

Hi there. Today I have the last of my cards for a little while, using the Painted Poppies stamp set from the 2020 Stampin' Up! January to June Mini Catalogue. This one is another version of a card I made last month.

Stampin Up Painted Poppies Stamp Set / Tufted Embossing Folder congratulations card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

I just love the elegance of this Tufted Embossing Folder. I wanted as much as possible of it to show, so I have just used Stitched Rectangle Framelits for my stamped panel and Highland Heather mat. My poppy is watercoloured using a Blender Pen and ink from the ink pad lid. I used Gorgeous Grape and Highland Heather for the flower and Old Olive for the stem and leaves. My greeting is from the level 1 Saleabration set, Sending You Thoughts, and is stamped in Sahara Sand. You can view all of the products used today, by using the links at the end of the post.
