Quick and Easy Stampin' Up! Abstract Beauty Cards

If you are a fan of quick and easy cards, the Stampin' Up! Abstract Beauty products I am going to show you today will be just the thing for you. It is so quick and easy to make this bright bunch of cards using three main products, and your choice of sentiment stamp set.

To start with you need a pack of pre-printed Abstract Beauty Cards and Envelopes. You get 20 cards and envelopes in a pack for just $17.50. There are lots of different designs and colours and each card has a coordinating envelope.

Next up you will need the Abstract Beauty Ephemera Pack for $11.25. This has a bunch of awesome cardstock and vellum die cuts you can use to embellish your cards (you get 2 of each of the ones shown here). Great price too.

Finally there is the coordinating Abstract Beauty DSP and this time it's a new size - 6" x 4". The patterns and colours coordinate perfectly with the other products, and you get 48 6x4" double sided sheets. There's also some gold foiling in there.

There are also some great more neutral designs in this pack which can be used for other projects, like this wedding card I made for my niece and her new husband.

Colour Creations Week 33: Pear Pizazz with Stampin' Up! Garden Greenhouse

Colour Creations 2021 to 2022 logoHello friends. Another week of Colour Creations for you. This week we have Pear Pizazz, a lovely subtle green with a warm undertone. Pear

I have combined three of my favourite products from the January to June Mini Catalogue in today's card. These are Greenhouse Garden bundle, the Bough Punch and the Abstract Beauty 4x6" Specialty Designer Series Paper. You can see these products in my online store using the links at the end of the page, and there are also product photos further down the post.

Stampin Up Garden Greenhouse 2022 card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator, Melbourne, Australia

I started with a Pear Pizazz side folding C6 card. My next layer is a piece of Pear Pizazz embossed with one of the Greenery Mini Embossing Folders. I really love this embossed pattern. My next layer is a piece of the gorgeous Abstract Beauty specialty DSP. I love the bright happy colours in this paper. It also has some gold foiling.

Next up I have a piece of Basic White cardstock 9.6cm x 7.5cm. I stamped the largest foliage image (from the Garden Greenhouse stamp set) in Pear Pizazz ink. The teeny flowers were added using Polished Pink ink. These were super easy to line up as the stamp set is photopolymer. Make sure you line the bottom of the foliage up with the bottom of the Basic White cardstock piece.

Next up I cut my greenhouse pieces from the Greenhouse Dies. I cut the solid piece from a Window Sheet, and the outline piece with Silver foil. I attached the Silver Foil to an adhesive sheet before I diecut, so it could easily be attached t0 the Window Sheet. I attached the Window sheet to the card with a couple of small pieces of Stampin' Seal. next time I will use mini glue dots, or try sponging a thin layer of Multipurpose Liquid Glue as I have heard that works too.

To finish off my card. I punched the foliage shapes from the Bough punch in Pear Pizazz (the larger piece) and Polished Pink (the smaller piece). There are great foliage pieces included in the Greenhouse dies too, but I wanted to try out my Bough Punch. Finally I stamped the sentiment in Memento black ink and added a couple of Matte Black Dots.

Lots of Heart Valentines Card

Hey crafters.  Today I have a handmade Valentines day card using the new 2021 Stampin' Up! Lots of Heart stamp set. It would also be suitable for a wedding, anniversary or engagement card.

Stampin Up handmade card using new 2021 Lots of Heart stamp set. Has 3 overlapping punched coloured hearts and a watercolour background. By Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

I was inspired with this summery colour combination that was used in the Sweet Little Valentines cards and more in the 2021 January to June Mini Catalogue. I have used Pool Party as the watercolour wash, and then Melon Mambo, Petal Pink and Calypso Coral for the hearts. I love the variety of patterns that the hearts can be stamped in.

Heart Colour
I have used our new Opal Rounds embellishments from the 2021 January to June Mini Catalogue to embellish my card, and a white heat embossed sentiment on basic black cardstock. I didn't have the coordinating dies for this stamp set, so I used the smooth edged heart punch from the Heart Punch Pack. I managed to make it fit pretty well, with just needing to cut a teeny bit out with paper snips at the top centre of the heart.

The Lots of Heart stamp set has 5 great sentiments suitable for a range of occasions. It is also available to purchase in a bundle with coordinating dies.

New 2021 Forever and Always Bundle Valentines or Anniversary Card

Lots of shiny, foil goodness in today's card share. I am using the gorgeous foiled papers and Forever and Always bundle from the Love You Always product suite in the Stampin' Up! 2021 January to June Mini Catalogue.

Stampin Up Forever and Always Bundle 2021 Card by Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

I LOVE (excuse the pun) how this card turned out. There's actually three amazing papers in the Love You Always Product Suite (view the whole suite HERE).

Love You Always

The Love You Always Specialty Paper is the foiled patterned one I have used for the second layer which has four sheets each in Sahara Sand, Petal Pink and Rococo Rose. I have used the Rococo Rose with a Rococo Rose card base. The Love You Always Foil Sheets are the solid foil colours to coordinate with the patterned foil (which I have used for the die cut word), and the black and white True Love Designer Series Paper. is a standard DSP which is also great for colouring with Stampin' Blends and spongeing or brayering. I added a punched vellum heart underneath the start of my sentiment.

Stampin Up Forever and Always Bundle 2021 Card by Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

The Forever and Always bundle is a really great bundle for wedding, valentines and anniversary cards. I can also see it will be useful for scrapbooking, especially the great die-cut words.

Stampin Up 2021 Forever and Always Bundle available from Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

I am particularly keen on the die cut words in this bundle. They have the great outline die as well, and several great words and phrases that coordinate with the big words. There are also little labels to cut these words out.

Stampin Up Forever and Always Bundle 2021 Card by Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

For the inside of the card I have just used a piece of Whisper White cardstock and a thin strip of DSP.
