Stampin' Up! Saleabration 2016 card - Botanicals For You

Hello there.

Finally starting to feel like I'm settling back into routine. It's the start of my boys second week back at school, and I think I've mastered the book covering, term sports signups / payments, the getting back to waking up at a decent hour (OK, so not quite mastered that one, lol).

On Friday night I exhaled after the first week back and did some creating. So nice to just spend some 'me' time doing something I love.

Demonstrator Melbourne AustraliaThis is one of the FREE Saleabration 2016 stamp sets you can earn until the 31st March with a $90 order. I really like it, and I love having 'just for you' cards on hand as they are suitable for so many occasions. I gold embossed it straight onto some Perfectly Artistic Designer Series Paper (another free choice for Saleabration with a $90 order - this one is only available until 15th Feb though).  The Bow Paper clips are super cute too.

Stampin' Up! Party with Cake Birthday Card

Hello. I'm back from a couple of weeks family holiday down on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula and the boys are both back at school this morning so I'm raring to go on a creative 2016!

One of my intentions this year is to send more of the cards I make! It all started with one of my fabulous Stampin' Up! friends, Shannon West, vowing to #imbringingbirthdaysback by sending handmade cards and not just wishing people happy birthday on Facebook. Now THAT was a bandwagon I wanted to be on! There really is nothing like a handmade card to brighten someone's day. Anyone with me on that goal? I'm aiming to send 200 cards this year, and am off to a good start with 14 cards in the mail last month.

  12540640_10153369830628951_6389762843800341112_n

I'll keep you posted with my total during the year. I know I can do this. Imagine all the samples I will have to share too!

Here's a birthday card I completed this week using the Party with Cake stamp set, and It's My Party DSP from the 2016 Occasions Catalogue. I've also added a balloon using the new balloon punch which cut 2 size of balloons (how easy can birthday cards get?).

Stampin' Up! Party Wishes Birthday Card

Love the quote on this birthday stamp, and knew the Stampin' Up! Party Wishes Stamp Set was one of the first stamp sets I had to get from the 2016 Occasions Catalogue.

2016 Occasions Catalogue Paper Share

Here's what I have done with some of the Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper (the stamp set I have used is called Hello and it's another of the Saleabration sets you can earn for FREE with a $90 order).

Stampin' Up! Christmas Cuties Stamp Set - Great for Colouring & Retiring Soon

Welcome friends.

Today I have a watercoloured image from  very cute stamp set that is in the 2015 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue, called Christmas Cuties.

Stampin Up Christmas Cuties stamp set Christmas card by Claire Daly SU Demonstrator Australia

My base card is Tip Top Taupe, and I have used perfect Plum and watercolour paper as well. My colouring is done with a Blender Pen, picking up the ink inside the lid of my Crumb Cake and Almost Amethyst ink pads.

I have also used Wink of Stella clear glitter brush, a great product that we will be stocking from the launch of the Occasions Catalogue in January. This product is AWESOME, as you can brush on the subtle glimmer, and it doesn't at all change the ink colour underneath. Here's a view which shows the shimmer much better.

There's also another two very cute images to colour in this stamp set. Sadly this stamp set will only be available until January 4th or until sold out, so if you like it, you can get it HERE.

stampin up free gift

Qualify for some free gifts when you spend $50 or more in one transaction in my online store using the monthly hostess code between now and December 31st. 

This month's hostess code is AESE67D2.

Your order will still ship directly to you (usually within 48 hours), and your total will go towards a group total for Stampin' Rewards which I will share between people placing orders this month. I get to surprise you with the goodies (usually consumables like cardstock, Designer Series Paper and embellishments), but I promise they will all be current, coordinating and FREE!

Wonderland, Sleigh Ride Edgelits and Jingle All the Way Stampin' Up! 2015 Christmas card.

Hello lovely friends. 

Today's card features some more of the 2015 Holiday Catalogue products which are retiring on the 4th January (or before if sold out). I really like how it turned out with the contrast of the black, gold and Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper.

I have used the luxurious Winter Wonderland Designer Series Paper which is a fabulous combination of gold, black and white. I have cut a couple of layers using the Sleigh Ride Edgelits and my Bigshot; one in Gold Foil and the other in White Glimmer Paper (love how this looks like snow).  To finish off I just added some sequins, a greeting from the Antique Tags stamp set (this greeting perfectly fits the Washi Label punch) and some gold cord trim.

I think these Edgelit dies and matching Jingle all the Way stamp set have been one of the most popular Christmas crafting items in my online store this season. If you would like to recreate this card, I've listed the product used after my signature below. I'm always happy to answer any questions by email or phone too. You can contact me HERE.

Have a happy day and thanks for visiting,

Kind regards,

Claire

First up I have a couple of cards using the Herringbone technique. This technique is fabulous for using up pieces of patterned paper. I have used the Antique Tags stamp set for my greeting (hostess set).

This peeking through the window card, uses the Hearth and Home Framelits which aren't retiring, but the Wonderland stamp set behind the window is, as well as the Snowflake Element, Season of Cheer Designer Series paper, and the Versatile Christmas set used for the greeting.

Finally I have this sponged night sky card using Sleigh Ride Framelits and Jingle All the Way Stamp Set. The stars are embossed in white before the night sky is sponged to create varying shades of the sky.

Three Stampin Up 2015 Christmas cards for you.

Hello there friends. Time to catch up on posting some Christmas cards I've completed over the past few weeks. Hope you find some inspiration here. Lots of these products are retiring from the current Holiday Catalogue, so if there is something you love, the product links are below my signature.

Love these colours of Mint Macaron, Rose Red, Silver and White together, I have used the Among the Branches Stamp Set, leftovers from the Oh What Fun Tag Kit, Holidays Fancy Foil Designer Vellum, Silver Cording, 1/8" striped ribbon and Silver Glimmer Paper. You NEED a Triple Banner Punch to make punching those flag ends a breeze. These days that's my most used Stampin' Up! tool besides my Stampin' Trimmer.

Next up we have a card I made using one of the cards from the Project Life Seasonal Snapshot 2015 Card Collection. Project Life cards make awesome element for cards too. I have also used some Cherry Cobbler Thick Bakers Twine, some Gold Cording Trim, a Snowflake Element and a piece of Gold Glimmer Paper and Home for Christmas Enamel Dots. My base card is Cherry Cobbler.

This one is a super simple one that could quickly and easily be reproduced into a batch of cards. The stamp set used here is Cosy Christmas, and the DSP is from Season of Cheer. I stamped the Santa and sleigh image in Soft Sky onto Soft Sky cardstock, and my greeting was coloured direct to rubber using my Soft Sky, Mossy Meadow and Real Red markers. I've also used the 2.5" Circle Punch and Tree Punch.

I hope you have enjoyed these cards. I have another 4 coming tomorrow morning in another post, so stay tuned. Until then, stay happy.

Art With Heart Team Blog Hop: Memory Keeping

Awht blog hop start
Welcome to my Art With Heart Team Blog Hop for November. This month some of the girls are focusing on Memory Keeping (Scrapbooking/Project Life). We all take photos right? Well, capturing every day moments is so special and we need to document these to cherish. We are all passionate about memory keeping and we want to continue to inspire each other, and you, as we move forward in 2016!

First up I have a traditional scrapbook page of a favourite photo from last Christmas. I have used the Words of Truth stamp set on this page, along with the Everyday Chic Designer Series Paper

Stampin Up Scrapbook Page 2015 Claire Daly Australia. Using Words of Truth stamp set and Everyday Chic DSP.

 

I have white embossed the title (be sure to use the embossing buddy when embossing white on black). Then I stamped the other phrases from the set and used them as journalling. For some additional journalling I downloaded a free typewriter font, and used that on a spare journalling card. I've also added an antique brad and a spare wooden heart I had leftover from a card kit.

You will LOVE the Words of Truth stamp set by Stampin' Up!. Just use the title or item number 139397 in the search box in  my online store (red button top right column).

I also have another page to show you form the Project Life New York album I am working on. The Project Life by Stampin' Up! Let's Get Away Card Collection is awesome for travel pages!

I love how easy it is to tell your story as you go with Project Life. Just pop in the journalling cards and write away. I also use punches to cut out bits of other cards to add additional bits and pieces to the cards sometimes (such as the punched out world shape centre top.

Here is a closer look at the Project Life by Stampin' Up! Card Collection, Accessory Pack and coordinating stamp set. All of these can be purchased in my online store (red button top right) under the Project Life section.

Stampin' Up! OnStage make and takes November 2015 and Occasions / Spring Summer 2016 Catalogue sneak peeks

I've just returned from a fabulous day and a half of training and celebration with Stampin' Up! in a new training format which happens around the world in over 12 locations. It was very cool! I will post later tight with details of the event and the goodies we got, but I wanted to show you some sneak peeks of new Occasions catalogue products.

We had four make and takes spread throughout the Saturday of the event. We got to make and take most of the elements of the cards below and I added some bits and made them into full cards when I got home.

Totally in love with this bright happy birthday suite of products called It's My Party. The colours are so bold and bright with a great contrast of basic black and whisper white. This make and take only shows some of the new paper, and the tummy coordinating Mint Macaron and Basic Back bakers twine. There are  whole lots of stamps and embellishments and matching punches included in this suite. The reeting is from a new stamp set I won in Prize Patrol called You're So Lovely.

I'm also totally in love with the new Botanical Gardens Product Suite. LOVE the colours, but the Framelits are amazing as well. They are the most detailed botanical framelits we have ever had and I love the fern bits and pieces included as well. One cool detail is that the stamps actually coordinate exactly with the size of the images on the DSP as well, so you can stamp details on the leaves and flowers on the paper. There are some great 3D effects happening with the framelits too.

The Going Places product suite is PERFECT for male cards, as well as travel themed scrapbooking and a whole lot in between. LOVE the map embossing folder and these papers are very me as well.
