New at SU Blog Hop – Step-it-up with the Beach Day Bundle

Hello and welcome to a very fun New at SU Blog Hop. This month we are stepping it up with products from our January – April Mini Catalogue. We are creating a simple stamping project and then using the same products to step it up for an avid crafter.

New at SU Header 2023-2024

I’ve chosen the Beach Day bundle which is very much in season here in Australia and created 3 versions of a card which is suitable for whatever level of crafting you are at right now – or dependent or the time you have to create!

CASUAL

The Delightful Floral Designer Series Paper provides a ready made shaded background for this card. Repeated stamping and a bit of ink blending make this a quick and easy card to make. Colouring was minimal with the surfboard coloured in just Calypso Coral and fussy cut to create a feature on the card.

Tips to keep it simple

  • Use your Designer Series Paper for maximum effect
  • Use just a few colours

AVID

I stepped this card up by colouring the other 2 surfboardsa and adding the die cut element of the wave. The sentiment was stamped on a separate piece of cardstock which coordinated with the Azure Afternoon card base and the layout was slightly changed to accommodate the wave border.

ARTFULLY AVID

A bit like the ‘burger with the lot’, the Artfully Avid card tends to add more technique into the mix. I’ve incorporated a bit more die cutting and lots more layers and detail.

I added more ink blending which really makes those surf boards look like they are on an Aussie beach. A cute die cut sandcastle incorporates the elements from my previous cards to give continuity to the step-it-up theme.

I hope you have enjoyed what I’ve shared today and see the possibilities of what you can create with your products. Please make sure to visit all our other team members to see how they step-it-up with their chosen products.

Get ready to Sale-A-Brate with the New at SU team as we share creative inspiration with a range of Sale-A-Bration products. This fantastic promotion runs until 29th February and you get to choose a free product from our Sale-A-Bration catalogue with every $90 order.

My card features the bright and cheerful Sunny Days Designer Series Paper. This can be earned free with a $90 order. This DSP coordinates with the Bright Skies bundle #162794 on page 51 of the Mini Catalogue.

I have paired it with the fun and aptly named, Cutest Cows bundle. This stamp set has a whole lot of images which can be used to build up scenes or used by themselves. Pair it with the punch to create cows with fun expressions and poses!

I used the Rays of Light stamp set to create a background strip which I felt worked well with the cloud DSP sheet. My sweet cow sits on another panel of the DSP.

I fussy cut some flowers from the DSP sheet to add around the cow and completed the card with a few Opaque Faceted Gems which is also a free Sale-A-Bration product.

New at SU Blog Hop – Gorgeously Made

New at SU Header 2023-2024

Hello and welcome to our final New at SU blog hop for 2023. We have got a unique challenge this month. All our projects are focusing on Very Vanilla and Crumb Cake as a colour combo. We could add an extra colour if we liked and I chose Pecan Pie as my third colour which gave me an extra neutral colour to work with.

I’ve used the Gorgeouly Made bundle and I used just about every stamp set in there (bar a couple of sentiments). I stamped the leaves in both first and second generation Crumb Cake and added some horizontal stripes in Pecan Pie.

The focal leaf was die cut 4 times from Crumb Cake Cardstock. Then I added some ink blending in Crumb Cake to give it some shading (it does look like Pecan Pie but I promise it was Crumb Cake!).

To create the circle, I die cut a leaf from Very Vanilla Cardstock, adhered it to another piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock and then die cut the circle from it. This gave it a lovely textured look.

Ideally, I would have liked the sentiment to have been stamped directly onto the back panel but…I stuffed up and the stamp moved and it was a momentary disaster. So I had to put into action Plan B and cover up my mess with a die cut sentiment label! So some improvisation was required and I think it turned out ok.

Please make sure you take a look at all the inspiration our team has for you. Thank you for taking time to stop by my blog here in Melbourne. I hope you have a very happy Christmas and will see you for more New at SU inspiration in 2024.

New at SU Blog Hop – Translucent Florals

Welcome to our New at SU Blog Hop for October. Our theme this month is a sketch inspiration using some new product from the Stampin’ Up! September – December Mini Catalogue. There are many ways to interpret this theme and for lots of inspiration, make sure you follow our hop all the way through.

New at SU Header 2023-2024

I’ve chosen the Translucent Florals bundle and paired it with one of our special release Designer Series Papers. The Delightful Floral DSP is 1 of 5 papers that are a special release which are available while supplies last. This pack is just my style with florals and pinks it was quickly added to my collection. It perfectly coordinates with the Translucnet Florals bundle.

To create the flower I die cut a set of petals from Basic White Cardstock and the same set from Vellum. The Basic White layer was blended with Berry Burst ink and then layered with the vellum for a soft look. The centre was die cut from the DSP.

The leaves were inked up in Parakeet Party and then I added Pretty Peacock on the tips with a Sponge Dauber to create the variegated look.

The main part of the sketch was formed with DSP and a blended embossed panel. This was separated by a label which was die cut from the DSP using the Christmas Classics Dies.

Butterflies and one of my favourite products, Black Gingham ribbon (because it just works with so many projects!) complete this card.

Last night on my FB Live I created another card using this sketch and the Modern Garden bundle. Watch the video below.

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy all the wonderful inspiration from our team.

New at SU Blog Hop – Hello, Irresistible Suite

Hi friends, Welcome to our New at SU Blog hop for August where we are featuring some of our suites in the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue and Online Exclusives range. I’ve chosen the Hello, Irresistible suite which is part of our Online Exclusives range.

New at SU Header 2023-2024

The Hello, Irresistible suite includes a stamp set and coordinating dies, Designer Series Paper and embellishments. The dies cut out several of the images in the Designer Series Paper, including flowers and leaves.

161154, Hello Irresistible Suite, Stampin' Up!
Colour Palette New at SU Blog Hop, August 2023

My card centred around that one flower which I heat embossed in Clear, stamping with Sweet Sorbet ink on Basic White Cardstock. I created 3 flowers which were watercoloured in Sweet Sorbet and Calypso Coral with a Water Painter. Then I cut them apart and layered each one to form a 3D flower.

I followed the sketch at TGIF Challenges and used some of the beautiful DSP for the top section of my card. I die cut the border also from DSP and blended Sweet Sorbet ink along the bottom edge.

Several leaves were die cut from the DSP and from Basic White Cardstock to fill out the flower.

For the banner, I die cut Soft Sea Foam Cardstock with the detailed die from the Irresistible Blooms dies. Then I adhered this to a piece of Kraft Notecard which I finished off by die cutting with the banner from the Nested Essentials Dies.

Thank you for stopping by to see my project. I hope you found it ‘irresistible’ and if you haven’t got this suite will consider adding it to your next order.

Next on our hop is my friend Angie McKenzie and I can’t wait to see her beautiful project with the Inked Botanicals suite. Follow our hop through for lots of suite inspiration and please leave a comment as we love hearing from you.
