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.

Best Friend’s Day #ci78

Today is Best Friend’s Day and I created a card inspired by the colour combination at Colour Inkspiration Challenges for it. Gray Granite is such a lovely neutral shade and combined with Blushing Bride and Early Espresso it really is a beautiful combination. 

I added a die cut layer from the Many Medallion dies in Gray Granite onto my Gray Granite card base. 

Layering  in the same colour adds depth to a project. Don’t you just love the detail in the die? You need to run the die a couple of times through your die cutting machine to make sure all the little bits come out of the cut out piece. Using the Die Brush Tip from the Take Your Pick Tool makes life so much easier.

The Whisper White panel has been stamped with images from the Lovely You stamp set. These images are great for creating background panels. This stamp set comes bundles with the Pick a Punch which create 6 types of tags/labels. Purchasing items marked as a bundle in the catalogue saves you 10% on the price. The sentiment is also from the Lovely You stamp set and is perfect for a special friendship for Best Friend’s Day.

You can get the Many Mates Bundle or the Lovely You bundle – FREE or you can choose any other bundle you like. See details below.

Flowers for Every Season Friendship Card

Hi friend,

Hope you are enjoying your long weekend. I’ve been having fun creating with the beautiful Flowers for Every Season Memories & More card pack. I’ve created this Friendship card using the sentiment from the Well Said stamp set  

Greeting Card with

Co-ordinating with this is the Flowers for Every Season Memories & More Cards & Envelopes which are in all our new In-Colours. I’ve used the Magenta Madness card for my base today. With it’s pretty envelopes, it’s a lovely addition to my craft stash. 

Papercrafting Ready Made cards and envelopes

The circle has been stamped with the reversible line image in the stamp set, using our stamp positioning tool – the Stamparatus, which makes it so easy to create repeat patterned images like this. Fussy cut images from the Memories & More pack and the Designer Series Paper create this lovely bouquet of flowers.

Simply Created with Memories & More Cards

Sunflowers, Memories & More, 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue

The Flowers for Every Season Suite is bright, cheerful and really captured my attention as I opened the Annual Cataogue. From Pages 10-13 you will see all the products that are in the suite in a range of colours. I always love the Memories & More Card packs and the Flowers for Every Season pack is so pretty. The best part about is that you get all 5 new In-Colours in the colour palette so it’s a really good taster of our new colours. 

I used the 1½” punch to create the corners on the card in the centre which coordinates with the printed corners of the card. 

I have added some Designer Series Paper from the In Good Taste pack which, I reckon, coordinates with every card – ok not EVERY card – but nearly every card.  With so many textures and a mix of colours, you can really maximize it’s uses. 

These Memories & More cards are great for quick & easy projects and scrapbooking. They also coordinate well with a pack of our new In-Colour Designer Series Paper for even more options.
