New at su Blog Hop – Simply Marbleous

Hello, Welcome to the New at SU Blog Hop for January and we are sharing Sale-A-Bration goodies with you.

New at Su Blog Hop Header

If you are new to the whole Sale-A-Bration thing, here’s the deal. For every $90 you spend in store (this is the amount in Australia) you get to select a FREE PRODUCT from our Sale-A-Bration Catalogue. There is no limit on the number of products you can earn so it’s a great time to stock up on all those craft essentials and get some freebies while you’re at it.

My feature Sale-A-Bration (SAB) product today is the Simply Marbleous Designer Series Paper. This is a freebie with a $90 order. You get 48 sheets of 6″ x 6″ double-sided paper in a selection of colours.

I die cut both sides of the So Saffron paper to create a pattern for the bottom half of my card. As a border in the middle of the card I added some Tear n’ Tape, applying Gilded Leafing and some twine coloured with a Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blend.

The bird image was stamped on Basic White Cardstock and fussy cut. I then stamped the bird on the Coastal Cabana piece of the Simply Marbleous DSP, fussy cut it and adhered it over the main image. By placing your image where there is more shading on the DSP, the bird will have some pretty colouring and ‘done for you’ shading.

I curved the sentiment to fit on the vellum circle and heat embossed in Black. Some Matte Dots coloured with a Light Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blend add the finishing touch to this card.

Thank you for stopping by and checking out my project. For a list of products used, please check the end of this post. Please click on the Next button to see Anke Heim’s lovely project.

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.

Stamp ‘N Hop – Hello 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue


Welcome to Stamping Flair and our Stamp n’ Hop blog for June. You may be hopping from Sue Allen’s blog or you may be starting the hop here. I live in Blind Bight which is a small town in Victoria, Australia. I’m having my Online Catalogue Launch today so I have been preparing quite a number of projects with our new products. 

I’ve chosen the Many Layered Blossoms die set for my card. This is a lovey large image and it coordinates with the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set. Read to the end of this post to find out how you can get the Blossoms in Bloom bundle for free.

Stampin' Up! Handmade card with Blossoms

I started off by layering a panel of the vibrant striped Flowers for Every Season DSP on the Magenta Madness cardstock. These stripes remind me of sweet lollies. I am not a sweet tooth but it has a bit of a fairy floss look which adds a happy feel to the card. 

There are 2 die cuts for the larger floral bouquet. The bottom has been die cut in Whisper White. The top in So Saffron and then I added Real Red ink with a sponge dauber for a subtle hint of colour with the So Saffron peeking through. These were then adhered onto So Saffron cardstock which I fussy cut. 

Stampin' Up! Many Layered Blossoms

As the image is such a bold image, I kept the sentiment simple in black with a small lace border die cut from the Ornate Borders dies. This is my first card with this set and I hope to try a variety of styles and combinations as I think it offers so many possibilities.  I hope you have been inspired to get creative with this bundle.
