ESAD Stampin’ Up! 2024-2025 Annual Catalogue Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the ESAD (Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators) Blog Hop for the new 2024-2025 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue. For my project today I am using the Country Birdhouse bundle which can be found from pages 48-51 of the catalogue and is part of the Country Woods mega suite.

I began the process for creating this card by stamping the birdhouse in Moody Mauve. This was watercoloured using several mauve shades and some Basic Bege for a neutral. The roof and base of the birdhouse was die cut from Fluid 100 Cardstock and individually watercoloured to achieve different effects.

The bird was stamped in Stazon ink and watercoloured in Highland Heather, Petal Pink and Basic Beige for the beak and feet.

On the matte layer I stamped the leaves from the Spotlight in Nature stamp set and coloured them in with Lemon Lime Twist, Light Old Olive and Light Lost Lagoon Stampin’ Blends. Additional leaves were die cut using the Stippled Roses dies from Basic White Cardstock and I blended the ends with Old Olive ink using a Blending Brush.

I filled in the leaves with die cut flowers which were cut out from Basic White and Pretty in Pink Cardstock. The White flowers were blended with Highland Heather and Petunia Pop ink to give variation.

Some Linen Thread, a heat embossed sentiment and shiny sequins finish off this card which was such a joy to create.

I hope you have enjoyed what I have shared today. Full list of products are available at the bottom of this post.

Caseing the Catty CTC468 – New Annual Catalogue

Hi friends, Welcome to the Caseing the Catty Sunday Challenge Blog Hop and this is my first week participating as a crew member. I’m thrilled to have been asked to join the Design Team and am thanksful for this opportunity. I’m looking forward to sharing creative inspiration with you as part of the team.

This week’s challenge is to CASE the Annual Catalogue. With so much inspiration throughout the catalogue it’s a tough choice to pick just one!

After much thought and indecision I settled on this gift box from Page 46 which uses the Thoughtful Journey Suite. My inspiration was the gift tag and the tone-on-tone background.

Tag

I started by blending Soft Sea Foam, Lemon Lime Twist, Shy Shamrock, Summer Splash and Wild Wheat on Basic White Cardstock. Then I added some stripes from the Of Art & Texture stamp set which is part of our Online Exclusives range.

I heat embossed some small flowers in White from the Country Birdhouse stamp set around the Cardstock. Using the Radiating Stitches Dies, I cut a rectangle, then repositioned the die to cut out the tag shape.

Some elements from the new Ephemera Packs were added to the card, including the sentiment. These packs provide a variety of ready-to-go images and sentiments.

To depict the tone-on-tone background of the gift packaging, I embossed a piece of Basic Beige Cardsstock with the Layered Florals Embossing Folder. I added a narrow matte layer of White behind the embossed layer to tie in with the White Embossing which also added a subtle contrast. This was added to a Basic Beige Cardstock. New to our colour range, this is a must-have in your stash. It’s a beautiful neutral which I love.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you are inspired to CASE a project from the catalogue and share it over the on the Challenge FB page. Next on our hop is Lauren Meiklejohn. Please follow our hop through for more inspiration.

Monochromatic Coastal Cabana – Country Birdhouse Slimline Card

Coastal Cabana from the Stampin’ Up! Brights range is a favourite of mine. It’s such a beautiful cool blue that works well with many colours. For our Monochromatic Insta Hop this week, I’ve paired Coastal Cabana with Crumb Cake as my neutral.

The large birdhouse from the Country Birdhouse bundle fit well on a slimline card. The card base measures 20 cm x 20 cm, scored in half .

I die cut the pieces of the birdhouse from Cardstock and the centre from Country Woods DSP. The main part of the house was embossed with the Timber Embossing Folder. Then I blended Crumb Cake and Coastal Cabana ink over it for a coastal wood look.

The bird was coloured with Coastal Cabana and Early Espresso Watercolour Pencils. Around it I added some flowers which were die cut from Fluid 100 Cardstock which had been painted with Coastal Cabana ink refill.

I was tossing up whether to leave the white matte layer blank and decided that it needed something a little softer to break it up. I added a panel of Country Lace Designer Series Paper at the bottom which added a subtle design and broke up the stark white background.

The centre border of White Cardstock was embossed with the Eyelet Embossing Folder and the ribbon added to the natural look I was going for with this card. This little addition just added the perfect touch to this card. The Tinsel Gems are just beautiful and on this card they look like water droplets sprinkling around the birdhouse.
