Stamp N’ Hop – 2020 In Colours

Hi, 

Welcome to my blog Stamping Flair today. I’m participating with other demonstrators around the world in the Stamp N’ Hop blog hop.  I am located in Melbourne, Australia . Today, we are showing projects highlighting our new In-Colours.  

I kept to a simple layout for my cards which feature the Celebrate Sunflowers bundle

The sunflower was heat embossed in white on coloured cardstock and die cut with the coordinating die.

Magenta Madness, Bumble Bee cards

I layered the 2020-2020 In-Colour Designer Series Paper behind it to really showcase our 5 beautiful In-Colours.

New at SU Blog Hop – 2020 In Colours

Welcome to my blog Stamping Flair. I am based in Melbourne, Australia and today I am thrilled to be participating in the New at SU Blog Hop for the first time. We are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world and this month we are showcasing our beautiful new In-Colours.

I chose the Fancy Phrases bundle which includes the Fancy Phrases stamp set and the Fancy Tag Topper punch to showcase the 5 colours – Cinnamon Cider, Just Jade, Magenta Madness, Misty Moonlight and Bumble Bee. My card bases were chosen from the Neutrals range to keep a uniformed look.

Cinnamon Cider

I find that Cinnamon Cider can be quite a strong colour so I toned it down by adding it to a Crumb Cake card base. The Cinnamon Cider panel has been stamped with the edge of the large stamp in the Fancy Phrases stamp set to create a border right around. The Very Vanilla panel has been embossed with the Old World embossing folder and sponged in Bumble Bee and Cinnamon Cider to create a soft shading. Accents of gold foil and ribbon work well with the earthy tones of Cinnamon Cider .

Just Jade

This is my favourite of the 5. A Smoky Slate card base with a frame die cut from the Stitched Rectangles dies create a lovely combination against the stamped-off Just Jade flowers. I used the Fancy Tag Topper punch to create the black tag. Being able to turn the punch over and align the centre of the cardstock, makes it easy to create smaller tags than the 5cm which is the actual width of the punch.

Magenta Madness

A simple card layout for my Magenta Madness and Basic Gray card. I have added detail with the Little Details embossing folder, running it through twice to get the border on either side of the cardstock. The Glitter Organdy ribbon adds a bit of sparkle to this ‘Miss You’ card. Now that we are back in lock down, I’ve got someone in mind that I could send this to. Aren’t we just so fortunate to have this hobby which we can use to lift up others. 

Bumble Bee

This is another one of those fairly strong colours which I like to add in muted tones. I started off by adding a piece of the Peony Garden DSP to my Gray Granite card base. Then I stamped a panel of Whisper White cardstock with the Dry Brush stamp and cut 3×1 1½” strips. The border from the Peony dies in Basic Black works well with these colours and creates an elegant edge to the card. I really like this layout at it’s also great for using up cardstock and DSP scraps. 

The outer sentiment does have a second part which I stamped on the inside of the card.

Misty Moonlight

An ombré background from the Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper against a Sahara Sand card base was used for my last card. I created a tag from another section of the same DSP and stamped some flowers in Misty Moonlight. Cinnamon Cider adds a nice contrast on this card against all the blues. 

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have enjoyed my cards and they inspire to create using our In-Colours. I would love to hear from you so please leave me a comment. There is a list of products used on these cards, at the bottom of this post.  For more ideas on how to use these colours, make sure you hop through all the blogs which are listed further down.

Flowers for Every Season Team Swap Cards

I recently organized a swap with my team members using products from the new Annual Catalogue. I chose the Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper and let the colours from it help me decide my colour palette for this card. It’s so easy to coordinate colours using the DSP  as a starting point.

I can tell you, Magenta Madness and Poppy Parade is not a colour combination I would have usally put together but it looks so beautiful on this DSP that I chose this for my card. So, then began my fussy cutting which I rather like to do. I cut flowers apart from the DSP, layering them to add dimension.

I went for a crisp, white background, embossing the Whisper White panel with the Tasteful Textiles Embossing Folder. Coordinating with my colour scheme, I wanted a Poppy Parade label in the centre but I really wanted a softer background. First I heat embossed the leaves from the Lovely You stamp set and then sponged Poppy Parade over it to achieve the look I wanted. 

A linen bow was added along with a sentiment from the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set. Then I added a Champagne Rhinestone for just a touch of extra elegance. 

All the products I have used for this card are listed at the bottom of this post and it’s a fun and quick card to make.

I currently have a BOGO (Buy One Get One Free) sale running on my Stamping Flair Online Events Group. All items I have for sale are listed in albums. For every dollar you spend on retired products you get to spend the equivalent dollar value on anything in the new catalogue. So for instance, if you select a bundle for $50 from my retired product, you will have $50 to spend on new product. Essentially, you will be receiving my retired goods for FREE. Join my Facebook Group to browse the products on offer. 

You will also receive Bonus Days vouchers for every order over $90.

You will find the Playful Pets Suite from Pages 40-42 of the Annual Catalogue. It’s so cute. The DSP has a colour palette of Basic Black, Cinnamon Cider, Early Espresso, Flirty Flamingo, Real Red, Soft Suede, Whisper White. It’s got so many fun images of cats and dogs, one of which I have fussy cut out for my card. Doesn’t she just look so cheeky?

Card with dog and square doily

I added one of our pretty vellum doilies which I sponged with Real Red ink to match my card. A little heart trinket adds just the cute finishing touch for this fun card.

Spot the Dog – Inspire. Create. Challenge #071

Playful Pets and Playing with Patterns – now that’s going to be a fun combination! I had so much fun creating this card. The Playing with Patterns Designer Series Paper has fun patterns and colours and just gives a cheerful feel. So it was a great backdrop for this cute doggy. 

I stamped a strip of the ombré DSP in Coastal Cabana with the floral triangle from The Right Triangle stamp set. Moving the triangle around you can completely cover a piece of DSP or cardstock. I was inspired by this sketch at the Inspire. Create, Challenge blog.

To create the thin stripe on the left, I used the die with the row of triangles. I think this bundle will be one I will be using time and time again as I love the geometric patterns and also the ability to use it in a more softer way. 

The dog was coloured in Stampin’ Blends and I added a little bow with some linen thread from the Gorgeous Posies Kit. 

 

During June, you can earn The Right Triangle bundle or any other bundle in the Annual Catalogue, for free. Just purchase a Starter Kit which is any selection of items that you choose worth $235 and pay only $169. Then you will also get to select ANY bundle from the Annual catalogue as an extra.

aWow Blog Hop – Inspiration from the New Annual Catalogue

Hi,

Welcome to my blog, Stamping Flair. I am a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in Victoria, Australia. The Around the World on Wednesday (or aWOW) Blog Hop is made up of demonstrators representative of all the Stampin’ Up! markets around the world. This month our guest is the talented Cindy Schuster. So I hope you enjoy your journey with us this Wednesday. 

AWOW Blog Hop Header

This is such an exciting time in the Stampin’ Up! family where we get to play with all our new products from the brand new Annual catalogue. Have you got a favourite product or maybe it’s several favourites? I have several suites and stamp sets that I love. However, I did have to make a choice and it happened to be one of the products in the suite that steered me towards the decision I made. 

The Forever Greenery Suite. Aaaah, there’s green and then there’s Forever Greenery! Isn’t it beautiful? It’s got shades of green and blue. So what do you think might have just tipped me in it’s direction? Those Gold Laser Cut papers- yes, they are just beautiful. Apart from that, I am loving the smaller size. At 9¾” x 10″ it’s much easier to handle than the previous laser cut papers which were at 12″x12″. 

I have incorporated all the products in this suite on my cards including the beautiful Forever Greenery embossing folders. These will fit in our soon-to-be-released Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. I’ve combined the gold laser cut elements with some stamped leaves. The stamp was inked up in Soft Sea Foam and then inked around the edges using a sponge dauber in Pretty Peacock to achieve the dual-colours.  

On the next card I used the debossed side of the embossing folder and added some colour using a sponge dauber. Those Gold Hoops are so cute and add a lovely detail to projects. The back panel has been embossed with the Old World Paper embossing folder. This actually creases the cardstock – just like old paper! I love it. 

This gorgeous wreath is the centrepiece of my third card. I’ve added some die cut elements including some dual-coloured stamped leaves of Old olive and Bermuda Bay, the same way I did on the previous card. 

Thank you for visiting me today and I hope you come back soon. I hope you have been inspired by my cards and I would appreciate you leaving me a comment as I do love hearing from you.  All the products I have used are listed at the bottom of this post.
