2019-2020 Annual Catalogue Paper Share

Have you had a look at the amazing new catalogue?  Stampin’ Up! continue to offer us a great range of paper crafting products and their beautiful range of Designer Series Paper caters for every occasion.

This year, for the first time, I’m offering you the complete range of DSP through a paper share offering. Participating in a paper share allows you to enjoy the range of beautiful papers without having to spend money on purchasing entire packs of them. I divide the paper (generally 4 shares) and the cost is split accordingly. You can however choose to buy any full pack of Designer Series Paper as well (they are stunning).

The pictured items are the first 12 items of the paper share which are the 12’x12′ DSP packs.

Orders need to be placed by 30th June so I can finalize the paper shares.

Don’t Let Worry Spoil Your Happy

Another quick card with the pretty, Everything is Rosy Project Medley – this massive kit that enables you to create to your heart’s content.  My chosen card base is Gray Granite and I love the soft look of this against the beautiful rich colours on the Designer Series Paper which come in this Medley. 

Handmade Card with Banners and Rose Gold Paper

I then embossed the Melon Mambo panel with the Layered Leaves embossing folder. This combines well with the Rose Gold leaves on the patterned paper. The layering of 2 different patterned papers work well in this case as one is lighter and has a smaller design, while the Night of Navy paper stands out against this with the Rose Gold leaves. I used the Triple Banner punch to create the banners and layered ribbon around this at the top for a coordinated look.

The Rose Gold border has been die cut with one of the intricate dies that come in this 10 die set. It’s absolutely beautiful and adds so much elegance to a simple project. 

This is a lovely encouragement card and is bound to cheer anyone up.

Coordinating Card and Gift Box with Everything is Rosy

My projects continue today with the Everything is Rosy Product Medley. I can’t seem to stop creating with this beautiful range of products which I’m sure, was made for me. If you know anything about me, I love the colour pink and you will find my home decorated with shades of pink from cushions to ornaments and flowers – I love it.

I’ve got a couple of coordinating projects to show you today. The card and mini pizza box have been decorated with the same paper and similar arrangement of flowers. I think this would make a lovely wedding card as you could put money or a gift card in the box.

For the card base and pizza box I chose the softer pink of Blushing Bride to layer my beautiful Rose Gold paper on.

Congratulations Card

I started the card off by stamping a border on the side of the card with some leaves  in Blushing Bride. Tone on Tone stamping adds just the right amount of background without taking over the design. Then I added the Rose Gold detailed paper with Night of Navy striped coordinating paper acting as a border.

The flowers have been stamped in a combination of Blushing Bride and Melon Mambo. Don’t these look lovely together?

Rose Gold shimmer paint was added to the centre of the flowers. I did this by dipping a stylus into the lid of the shimmer paint and then adding dots on the flowers. For the larger flowers, I dragged these dots outwards creating a shimmery centre. You can see the shimmer in the photo below.

Rose Gold foil was used for the fine leaves that have been added to the floral spray. These cut out really easily and the shiny leaves work really well with the little Rose Gold flowers on the Designer Paper. The sentiment was stamped on one of the die cuts from the pre-cut sheets which come in this Medley.

Mini Pizza Box

The gift box is very quick to make with our cute mini pizza boxes. I layered the Designer Paper on top of the Blushing Bride cardstock. then added a coordinating paper on the 4 sides. The flower has been arranged with the leaves as I did for the card to make this a lovely coordinated gift set.

Coming up Roses with Everything is Rosy

I’m excited to share with you these cards that I have made with this fun product medley. I got mine in the mail Tuesday but I resisted opening the package until I had finished the project that I was working on and cleaned my desk. Wednesday being my day off from my regular job, I was able to admire these goodies. I have been looking forward to ordering this since it was first shown and now that I have it, I can tell you it is amazing. There is so much in it, you will be creating like there’s no tomorrow. The stamps are beautiful and the dies that accompany them have some lovely intricate detail.

Stampin' Up! Everything is Rosy Product Medley display of products in the suite

The product medley includes

  • 18 photopolymer stamps
  • 10 dies
  • 48 sheets of 6’x6′ Designer Series Paper – 8 each of 6 double-sided designs. One side has Rose Gold detail.
  • 8 sheet of 6’x6′ Rose Gold foil paper
  • 2 sheets printed die cuts
  • 4 sheets rose gold die cuts – 2 sheets of 2 designs
  • 60 Rose Gold adhesive backed mirror embellishments (these have a clear film on top to protect them),

  • 9.1 metres Night of Navy/Rose Gold Metallic-Edge Ribbon
  • 15ml Rose Gold Shimmer Paint

As for the double sided Designer Series Paper – you need to see it to really see how beautiful it is. It looks so opulent with the Rose Gold through it.  

DSP Everything is Rosy, Stampin' Up!

I just had to make this paper the prominent feature on my first 2 cards from this suite as it is so pretty. How could I not? I had trouble picking which sheets I wanted to use first and ended up choosing this gorgeous Night of Navy with Rose Gold swirl paper. For a contrast, I chose a striped sheet without the Rose Gold feature for the second card.

The smaller oval has been embossed with the Tufted embossing folder and on this card with the Night of Navy background the Rose Gold Foil sheet really stands out with the embossing. I created a stamped panel with one of the flowers from this 18 piece stamp set. The Melon Mambo has been stamped off once to achieve a muted look. 

Everything is Rosy, Night of Navy card with Rose Gold and Flowers, Stampin' Up!

The rich Night of Navy ribbon with the Rose Gold edging adds a glamorous touch to this card. On both cards I have used die cut flowers from the printed die cut sheets. These are great for creating quick projects. 

On the next card I added a similar border in the centre but used the leaves instead with Night of Navy stamped off. The images stamp really well and are lovely. When using photopolymer stamps, it’s helpful to have a Piercing Mat underneath the cardstock to act as a cushion which will give you a crisper image.

The sentiment has been mounted on a small banner created from a bit of leftover (it’s not scrap when it’s Rose Gold!) paper. Although it’s small it adds a nice element to this card. I added a Rose Gold mirror embellishment to the centre of the flower to tie in with the Designer Paper under the sentiment

Hugs from Shelli Paper Pumpkin Kit – Limited Time Release

One of Stampin’ Up!’s goals is to surprise and delight you with fun, new creative experiences. Shelli Gardner, board chair and cofounder of Stampin’ Up!, has partnered with Paper Pumpkin to create a limited edition, nature-focused kit. Shelli collaborated with concept artists and designers to develop the kit to give us a papercrafting experience inspired by Shelli herself.

To be able to access Paper Pumpkin is something I know many of us have been wanting for a long time and have drooled each time we look at our North American friends open their kits. Paper Pumpkin kits are so good and finally we get to try it out in Australia and what a beautiful kit that we get to try out. 

Hugs from Shelli Paper Pumpkin Kit

What is Paper Pumpkin?

  • Paper Pumpkin is a monthly papercrafting kit offered by Stampin’ Up! that is currently only available in the United States and parts of Canada.
  • Because the Hugs from Shelli kit is so special, it has been made available globally so everyone has the chance to experience it. 
  • Hugs from Shelli Paper Pumpkin kit will be available from 15th May – while supplies last. 

The look and feel of this kit is all Shelli. It’s elegant and feminine, and so full of natural details that you’ll probably just want to take a walk, breathe in the fresh air, and then go home and stamp every card in the kit. Shelli describes the kit as ‘A touch of earthy and elegant spring with lots of layers and texture.’ Shelli collaborated with concept artists and designers to develop the kit, giving them a papercrafting experience inspired by Shelli herself.

And how gorgeous is that floral box?

 

Important Kit Details

Part of what makes a Paper Pumpkin kit special is that projects inside the box aren’t revealed ahead of time. This is to give the subscriber a sense of excitement when they receive their kit in the mail each month. You will get a peek at one of the projects but the rest of the fun stuff in that pretty box remains top secret until it gets in your hands!
