Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring Stampin' Up! In Colours. Check out the new 2018 - 2020 in colors and lets not forget the current 2017 - 2019 in colors. If you would like a copy of the 2018-2019 annual catalogue, contact any of the girls on the blog hop and we will get in touch with you.

You may have started here, or may have come here from the link on my lovely friend and team member Sharon Davern's blog.

For today's project I have made a set of 5 thank you cards using the new 2018-20 In Colours.  Left to right on the back row we have Blueberry Bushel, Pineapple Punch and Lovely Lipstick. On the front row (laying down) we have Call Me Clover on the left and Grapefruit Grove on the right.

Here's a closer look at the cards. The base card is a standard C6 sized Whisper White card (thick cardstock). The next layer is 9cm x 13.5cm piece of standard weight Whisper White, and I have adhered a 2.5cm x 13.5 cm piece of the InColour Designer Series Paper on the left hand side. I LOVE how we have 6x6" paper packs in each of the 2 InColour groups and each core colour group this year. I use these papers so much and they will be high on my shopping list.

I embossed (with the Lovely Floral 3D Embossing Folder) the whole second layer piece once the InColour paper was attached, and I really like how that turned out. I have used some of the coordinating InColour 1/8" Grosgrain Ribbon over the join of the paper and cardstock.

For my greeting, I stamped the 'thank you' greeting from the Stampin' Up! Love What You Do Stamp Set in each coordinating ink colour. This is die cut with the second smallest oval Stitched Shape Framelit. I also stamped one of the floral images in the Love What You Do stamp set on the front of each accompanying envelope.

The cards could be enclosed in an acetate or handmade card box to gift to the lucky recipient, but for these ones I just tied them together with some of our beautiful new 5/8" Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon (available in the new catalogue in Whisper White and Very Vanilla, but I have used Whisper White here).

Stampin' Up! Mothers Day card with new 2018 Love What You Do and Making a Difference Stamp Sets

Hello. I've been working on Mother's Day cards this week. Sometimes I don't have exactly the right sentiment, but with a couple of the new 2018 Stampin' Up! stamp sets available as part of the Share What You Love bundle, I was able to come up with the perfect sentiment for the card for my Mum. 

Stampin Up Share What You Love mothers day card 2018. Claire Daly Melbourne Australia.

I really am lucky to have a Mum like I have. She has taught me strength, resilience, the importance of a close, loyal family and much more. I am so grateful for my Mum.

This is what I started with before I played around with the greeting.

Stampin Up Share What You Love mothers day card 2018. Claire Daly Melbourne Australia.

I have used the stamps from the Love What You Do stamp set which is available for customers to buy this month in the three different Share What You Love Bundles.

149804O1

I have used Powder Pink for my card base and for the flowers, Pear Pizazz for the wreath, and Mint Macaron for the greeting. The cute little pearls are part of the embellishments included in Bundles 1 and 2, the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls.

Colour MD card

Measurements: My base card is 10.5cm square, and the Whisper White layer is 10 cm square.

Tip: To get the circle shape to stamp the wreath around, I used a pencil to draw inside the largest of my layering circle Framelits.

 

For my adapted version of this card, I added in some elements from the new 2018 Making a Difference Stampin' Up! stamp set.

The measurements and colours are exactly the same. I have used the floral image from the Making a Difference Stamp Set instead. For the greeting, I chopped up the bits I wanted to use, and then arranged them around the word 'Mum' which I stamped using the alphabet stamps in the set (LOVING the script font in this set). The letters are easy to line up as they are Photopolymer (even for someone with dodgy eyes like me). The little wood heart is an embellishment from the 2017 Annual Catalogue (Hearts and Stars Elements).

The Share What You Love exclusive May bundles are really pretty. Stampin' Up! have included free product gifts in each bundle, and I am also giving away 12 FREE Tutorials, and a 53 swatch colour sampler to anyone who buys any of the 3 bundles from me in May.

5 Cards for males with the retiring True Gentleman Product Suite

Another of my much loved product suites in the 2018 Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalogue, has been the True Gentleman suite of products. I really liked the deep rich masculine colours in the Designer Series Paper (and coordinating cardstock pack), the fabulous textured  Night of Navy Corduroy Ribbon, and the True Gentleman wooden buttons (the buttons are the only one of these consumable products carrying over to the new catalogue).

Capture

The coordinating bundle to this stamp set is the Truly Tailored Bundle. While the stamp set ISN'T Carrying over, the Tailored Tag Punch is, and there is a lovely new stamp set that it coordinates with which I will show you very soon. Here is the Truly Tailored Bundle which is available while stocks last until May 31st. Check out the links at the end of the post to grab these products before they retire.
