Various sheets of the DSP have been used to create the different layers on this card. The flower is also part of the DSP and there is a Die in the set which cuts that out to make life easy for us. 

Bunny Handmade card with Stampin' Up! paper on sale

I stamped the bunny in Early Espresso onto Shimmery White cardstock and coloured the image with Early Espresso, Crushed Curry and Flirty Flamingo Water Colour pencils and used a Blender Pen to smooth the colour out. I also added a bit of Bermuda Bay to the sky by taking my Blender Pen direct to the pencil and brushing the colour on lightly.

Kylie’s International Blog Highlight September – Daisy Encouragement

Kylie's International Blog HIghlightI’ve made an encouragement card today as part of Kylie Bertucci’s September International Blog Highlight. I’ve chosen neutral shades and the calming tones of Balmy Blue as my colour combination.

I stamped the bird in Tuxedo Black Memento ink, die cut it with the circle and coloured with Balmy Blue and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends. Then I created a mask by stamping the bird again on some scrap paper. I dabbed a bit of liquid glue on the back and left it to become tacky. Then I placed this over the the bird to use as a mask and stamped the leaves in Old Olive over the circle.

Using 2 circle dies (1 larger and 1 smaller than the Whisper White circle), I die cut a frame from Crumb Cake cardstock. This was attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals on the embossed Balmy Blue panel.

Framed Bird coloured with Stampin' Blends

I stamped 3 daisies in Pretty Peacock ink, punched them out and sponged around to soften the edges. Several leaves were cut from the vellum sheet in the Magnolia Lane Memories and More cardpack and arranged under the flower. The ribbon has been secured with glue dots.

Perennial Essence Easy to Make Butterfly Card

Hand Painted and Timeless

What’s the next best thing to having one of Claude Monet’s painting hanging in  your home? Stampin’ Up! Perennial Designer Series Paper! One of our product designers, Julie Alusa, went to New York and was so inspired by Monet’s works of art, she decided to paint her own masterpiece.

In her own words: ‘While I was admiring Monet’s massive water lily paintings at the Museum of Modern Art and Metropolitan, I was inspired to do a Monet-esque page in the Designer Series Paper of impressionistic water lilies.’

My card today uses a very simple layout and to showcase one of these beautiful papers. 

Create a handmade card with simple layout using Monet type Perennial Essence paper with butterfly

I attached the ribbon with Tear & Tape then adhered the Designer Series Paper onto card base. The butterfly is part of a large die which has a group (or a kaleidoscope!) of butterflies, I cut one of these off to be the focal point of this card and layered the silver on top of Blushing Bride to make it stand out.

For the Love of Felt Project Kit

Hi Friends,

Hope you have had a great weekend. We are into a new month. Can you believe it that July is here? Bonus Days are here during July so for every $90 spent (ex shipping) you will earn a $9 coupon which can be spent in August. 

I’m sure over the past month you have been enjoying looking at the new catalogue and perhaps shopping from it. Today I’m looking at our project kits which are available in both the Annual Catalogue as well as the Beginner Catalogue. Some of these are all-inclusive project kits which means they include everything you need to complete the projects apart from your choice of adhesive. Others are Gather to Create project kits.  For these you will need the accompanying stamp set, ink pads, adhesives and other tools to complete the projects in the kit. The For the Love of Felt Project Kit is one such kit. 

Cardmaking kit in a box, Gift box

This kit drew me with it’s 3D felt flowers and bright and cheery colours as it’s so different to our other kits. The felt flowers are a lovely element which adds so much interest to these projects. With a colour palette of Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Lovely Lipstick, Pear Pizzazz, Pool Party, Sahara Sand and Shaded Spruce, these cards create a feeling of fun and happiness. 

There are a variety of sentiments in the For the Love of Felt stamp set. This sentiment of ‘you make an ordinary day special’ is sure to brighten someone’s day. The flowers come ready assembled so all you need to do is attach it to your card. 

The leaves and yellow flowers come die cut on a sheet so all that needs to be done is pop them out of the sheet of card. These cards are so quick to make. This makes it easy for you to have a nice stash of cards ready for a variety of occasions in a short time.

This is a very easy stamp set to create with and that bunch of leaves is my favourite. It creates maximum impact with little effort. I love the effect of stamping this around the edges to create the border on this card. 

Get the kit and the coordinating products to start creating these beautiful cards at home. You could also get some friends together and have a craft get together. I could bring the stamp set and ink pads and you could complete all your kits. 

Completed kit gives you 12 cards – 4 each of 3 designs. You can store your cards in the beautiful box the kit comes in. Purchase the kit, stamp set and an adhesive and you will earn yourself a Bonus Days coupon. It’s as easy as that.

Bird Ballad Scalloped Note Card Set

I’ve got a note card set for you today using a lovely set of Scalloped Note Cards and Envelopes from the new cataloue.

Both the envelopes and note cards have a dainty scalloped edging and there are 5 each of Balmy Blue, Old Olive, Light Pink and Terracotta Tile. This gives you 20 note cards and envelopes for $14.00 which makes it .70 cents a set. 

Decorating these were easy with the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper. The colours were just perfect for these note cards. I used the same simple layout on all the cards. 

The other day I spent a bit of time fussy cutting several images from these papers. I mixed and matched the birds with my cards today. 

Create a set of handmade cards with bird

I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits to die cut my frames. For the bottom layer I first tried Basic Black but felt that was too harsh so opted for Basic Gray and liked this much better as it was a softer look.

First card is Old Olive and I’ve added the lovely floral paper on the base. 

This is the Light Pink card and for my die cut square I used Petal Pink which coordinated with the paper I had used for the background. Are you loving the designs on the paper as much as I am?

Terracotta Tile card base but I did my die cut square in Calypso Coral. Can you tell? Someone didn’t read the back of the pack very well!

A Balmy Blue card with a pretty blue bird to match. 

The Gingham Gala sequins came in just the right colours to embellish these 4 cards. Stampin’ Up! are spot on for coordination. I used the Itty Bitty Birthdays and Detailed with Love (retired but I had missed moving it out of my currents) stamp sets for the sentiments to cover a variety of occasions.
