Art With Heart Stampin' Up! Team Monthly Blog Hop: My favourite new product bundle.

16387394_10154010975516735_4953759083653002070_n

Today the Art with Heart Team girls are showing you their favourite bundles from the 2017 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. Bundles make creating a breeze, because of the perfect coordination. It's a bonus that you get 10% off by bundling the products together too. There are 23 bundles in the new catalogue so ask us about them, or for a catalogue today!

You have to come to me from the lovely Alisha Watson's Blog.

I am showcasing the fabulous Oh So Eclectic bundle which is on page 133 of the Annual Catalogue. I chose this one because of the versatility of the Thinlitsand the way the stamps create the illusion of texture. This is the bundle used to create the images on the front of the Annual Catalogue too. This bundle is part of a suite which also includes the Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper and some great embellishments.

Here's a look at the bundle:

Oh So Eclectic Bundle

 

In my first card, I have layered the hexagonal die cut piece over some of the Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper. Next I layered stamped and die cut pieces in Emerald Envy, Berry Burst and Lemon Lime twist to pick up the colours in the paper. My base card is Soft Sky.

I wanted this card for a special birthday I am attending on Sunday, so I stamped a greeting from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set which you will find on page 77 of the Annual Catalogue. This greeting fits really nicely inside the new Pretty Label punch too (page 207).

For my second card I have used the hexagonal piece in another way. Once I had cut it from Powder Pink cardstock, I used my paper snips to cut around the very edge to create an embellishment layer. The paper I have used for this card is one of my favourites in the new catalogue, the Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper. 

Oh So Eclectic bundle hello card with Starburst Punch and Whole Lot of Lovely DSP. By Claire Daly Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

For the greeting on this card, I have embossed the greeting in white onto Basic Black cardstock and cut into thin strips. I have used the new Starburst Punch behind my stamped image. I love it when I can just grab a punch! I found the 2" circle punch a perfect fit for layering in front of the Starburst shape.

The other very cool thing about this bundle, is that the Thinlits also coordinate with another stamp set; You're Priceless on page 160 of the Annual Catalogue. I love this set!

Your Priceless
I have used some more of the paper from the Naturally Eclectic Designer Series paper. I stamped the diamond colours first (the two darker colours are stamped off once). When you are doing this, I found it easiest to stamp the darker colours first, so it's easier to see the placement of the lighter colours. I then cut the outline of this stamped shape with the Thinlits. Next I cut the inside of the diamond from the silver glimmer paper, and then the outline shape. The magnetic plate is very handy for this step.

I finished this one off with a greeting in Night of Navy ink, some border stamping in Lemon Lime Twist, and some Lemon Lime Twist Ombre ribbon. The new ribbons in this catalogue are so awesome. Check them out on page 198 and 199. This ombre ribbon particularly caught my eye and also comes in Calypso Coral and Island Indigo.

Art With Heart Stampin' Up! Team's Heart of Christmas 2017: Week 4

The Art with Heart team is back with Week 4 of Heart of Christmas 2017. I hope you are enjoying the inspiration for Stampin' Up! 2017 Christmas cards. After running out of time last year, it's great to have already started my 2017 Christmas cards.

Graphic

Today I have gone for a very traditional card and colour scheme. I have used Lovely as a Tree again. Did you know this stamp set has been in every Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue for the last 16 years? Talk about a classic.

Stampin Up Lovely as a Tree and Be Merry Designer Paper. Heart of Christmas by Art with Heart Stampin Up Team Melbourne Australia.

I have used the Be Merry Designer Series Paper, which is a new paper in the 2017 Annual Catalogue. The colours are very classic: Garden Green, Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White. I have also added in some Copper foil cardstock and copper embossing, I had a left over copper pinecone embellishment from last years Holiday catalogue, which was a perfect finish for these two cards.

Now it's tome to see what other members of the Art with Heart Team have been up to for Heart of Christmas Week 4.

Stampin' Up! Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder - BigShot sandwich and tips.

Hello friends. Today I have a quick and easy card for you as I wanted to show you how amazing and  multidimensional the beautiful new Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing folder is. You can find this folder on page 211 of Stampin' Up!'s new 2017 Annual Catalogue, or HERE in my Online Stampin' Up! Store.

  Stampin Up Layered Leaves Embossing folder and Label Me Pretty. 2017 Annual Catalogue. Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

These folders are thicker than our standard embossing folders (to accommodate the extra dimension), so here are a few tips to get a great result:

  • Just use one sheet of cardstock and spritz each side lightly with water before you put it into the folder.
  • Set up your BigShot sandwich with the BigShot base plate on the bottom, the folder next (with the spine going into the BigShot first), and then just one acrylic plate on top.
  • Roll the folder through the BigShot one way, and then while the very end of the folder is still under the pressure of the BigShot roller, roll back the other way and out.
  • If you are inpatient like me, you can dry any remaining damp spots on the cardstock with your heat gun.

Stampin' Up! have got a great video on how to use these folders:

 

I love the variation in depth of impression this Layered Leaves folder gives and can see I will be using it on lots of projects. Doesn't it look amazing in the new Incolour Lemon Lime Twist?

I have used a few other of my favourite new Stampin' Up! products on this card too. The new Berry Burst ink and cardstock, the beautiful new Lemon Lime Twist ombre ribbon, the new Pretty Label Punch and the coordinating Label Me Pretty stamp set. You can link to all of these products in the online store using the individual links at the end of my post.

The Pretty Label punch and matching stamp set comes in a bundle too, so that you can save 10% on the combined individual price. There are a massive 23 bundles in this years catalogue - find them all HERE in the bundles section of the online store.

Art with Heart Team Stampin Up Heart of Christmas 2017: Week 3

Graphic

Oopsy. It's Thursday not Wednesday for Stampin' Up! Heart of Christmas 2017 this week. My lovely Art with Heart team girls were all ready for Wednesday, but I have a rough parenting week with kids being awake overnight, and with the long weekend thought yesterday was still Tuesday!! At least I'm human right?

I love how this week's card turned out though. I really like how the new Tranquil Tide comes together with Real Red and Shimmery White. This little reindeer is from Santa's Sleigh Thinlits (page 214 in the Annual Catalogue or click on the link at the bottom of the page). These are super versatile Thinlits for Christmas. The background stamping is rom Lovely as a Tree.

Stampin Up Christmas Card 2017.Santa's Sleigh Thinlits and Lovely as a Tree with Tranquil Tide. Card by Claire Daly Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

This is definitely a Christmas card you could make multiples of. My advice would be to die cut all the pieces beforehand and make an assembly line. If you ddn't want to use the Incolour felt bows, you could use ribbon or twine to cut down the cost. I wove a little silver metallic thread around mine too. I also wanted to point out the border punch at the top of the card. This is a brand new punch and actually has two different edges: a small scallop and the lace edge. I think I'm going to use this a lot!

Art with Heart Stampin' Up! Team's Heart of Christmas 2017: Week 2

Graphic

It's Wednesday, so time for our Heart of Christmas Art with Heart Team showcase of Christmas creations for you. I'm finding this so fun and feel very accomplished to already have some Christmas cards ready for this year!

Today I wanted to use two of the new 2017 Stampin' Up! InColours with the Star of Light stamp set and coordinating Startlight Thinlits. I have used Lemon Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide. I love how these turned out.

Stampin Up 2017 Christmas cards using Star of Light stamp set and Lemon Lime Twist, Tranquil Tide. Cards by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

I made one of each base colour, and mixed up the colours of the die cuts and stamping. These were pretty quick and simple to do and I think would make a good production line card.

The Tranquil Tide colour is quite dark, but the lemon Lime Twist really lifts and brightens it I think. I also like the look of the clear faceted gems and adhesive rhinestones with these colours.

I made this one second, and added a little extra stamping onto the Shimmery White piece behind the die cuts.

Stampin' Up! At Home With You and the beautiful doors of France.

Around this time last year  our cruise ship stop in Marseille). Paris was everything I dreamed it would be, and I could wander those streets for months I think. One of the things that I loved looking at and photographing (beyond the beautiful floral balconies) were the doors. They were so beautiful and ornate. Here's a beautiful one I saw at Aix En Provence, and there are some more ones from Paris at the end of my post.

Aix En Provence ornate door France

 

It is those doors I was reminded of  and inspired by when I saw the new At Home with Me stamp set / bundle with matching At Home Framelits in the 2017 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. I have a things about doors at the moment!

How pretty is the Berry Burst paper in the 12x12 Fresh Floral Designer Series Paper Stack? You also get the 4 other new InColours in the stack. The Brick Wall 6x6 Textured Impressions Embossing Folder makes a great textured background for this card.

Welcome to the Heart of Christmas, 27 weeks of Handmade Inspiration from the Art With Heart Stampin' Up! Team

Graphic

I'm excited to bring you a new feature on my blog between now and Christmas. Each Wednesday, myself and some of the Art With Heart team girls will be posting some Christmas card inspiration using Stampin' Up! products from the 2017 Annual Catalogue (starts Thursday) and the 2017 Holiday Catalogue (coming in September). There are 27 weeks until the end of November, so we figured that would be 27 weeks of handmade Christmas inspiration, plus keep us on track with our own creating. 

Some weeks (like today) I will post a special one off card. Other weeks I will post a card that can easily be duplicated in lots of 5 or 10. I might even throw in some memory keeping or 3D items too. Here is today's card.

Stampin Up At Home with You 2017 Christmas Card. For Heart of Christmas by the Art with Heart Team. Claire Daly Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

The stamp set I have used is a new one in the 2017 Annual Catalogue, called At Home with You. It's a beautiful set to create doorway scenery with lots of different sentiments and bits and pieces which can be added to the scene, You are going to LOVE this set. I stamped the door image onto some of the new Wood Texture Designer Paper stack for a realistic wooden door look. The wreath and potted planters are coloured with the watercolour pencils. The Brick Wall embossing folder creates a nice backdrop.

I used some of the enamel shapes in Cherry Cobbler for the baubles on the planters.

Even though I gave them less than 3 days notice we were starting this week, some of the team have managed to post their own Christmas cards on their blog as well. I know lots of my team are keen on playing along (and we are always welcoming new team members if you would like to be part of something fun and about sharing what we love).

Art With Heart Team May Stampin' Up! Blog Hop - 2017 Annual Catalogue Sneak Peeks!

16387394_10154010975516735_4953759083653002070_n

Hello there. It's blog hop time again with my super talented team members from the Art with Heart Stampin' Up! team in Australia. Today we would like to preview some of the amazing new products from the upcoming 2017/18 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue which launches on June 1st. Be sure to ask any of the girls along the way for a copy of the new catalogue! We love to share what we are making with each other and with the stamping community. This is just one of the fun sharing activities we do each month, so if you are looking for a fun community of stampers to join ask us how quick, easy and affordable it is.

I am focusing on the Daisy Delight bundle of stamp set and punch for my cards. These will be available to purchase June 1st and there is a lovely coordinating Designer Series Paper as well.

  Stampin Up 2017/18 Annual Catalogue Sneak Peek Daisy Delight stamp set / Daisy Punch / emboss resist technique / seaside embossing folder / Powder Pink / Berry Burst

For this card I have embossed the daisy twice onto Shimmery White cardstock and then watercoloured over the top using two of the new InColours, Powder Pink and Berry Burst. Once dry, I cut out with the daisy punch and layered with a dimensional. The new Faceted Gems (also coming June 1st) are perfect flower centres, They come in clear (shown here) and gold.

Stampin Up 2017/18 Annual Catalogue Sneak Peek Daisy Delight stamp set / Daisy Punch / emboss resist technique / seaside embossing folder / Powder Pink / Berry Burst

In my second card, I have featured some of the  Beautiful Daisy Designer paper, along with paper from the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack (LOVE THIS!). You will also spy a new punch shape, and a new greeting from a great birthday stamp set / bundle called Happy Birthday Gorgeous. This time I have stamped the daisy in Wisteria Wonder ink onto the same coloured cardstock. I have used a cold faceted gem for the flower centre.

My final card features what I am sure is going to be one of my new favourite colour combinations for the new catalogue - Lemon Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide. This time I curled the daisy petals a little and added some Lemon Lime Ink (which turned out too hard to see because it's such a perfect match to the cardstock). For the flower centre, I have coloured some of the Perfect White Accents (in current catalogue) with a black sharpie and grouped them together.

Stampin Up 2017/18 Annual Catalogue Sneak Peek Daisy Delight stamp set. Daisy Punch, Lemon Lime Twist, Tranquil Tide, watercolor background, copper trim

For my background, I smooshed (that is a word you know!) onto a non stick BBQ sheet and then spritzed it and pressed the Shimmery White cardstock onto it (I did each colour separately).  You will also notice a new trim - and it's COPPER!! It's a loose -weave copper trim with zig zag stitching and will be available on June 1st. The cool thing is you can spread the fibres out which gives a great distressed look.

Stampin' Up! New Catalogue Sneak Peek: Fabulous Flamingo

Had a fun day stamping with a couple of friends last week, and got to play with a new soon to be released Stampin' Up! stamp set called Fabulous Flamingo. It will be in the new 2017/18 Annual Catalogue which I am distributing to my customers this month (click HERE to see how to get yours).

I'm not sure where my love affair with Flamingos began, but I totally love them. I haven't seen many in real like, but they are so graceful in pictures and they seem to be very on trend in beach wear, clothing, stationery etc.

Stampin Up 2017 2018 Annual Catalogue sneak peek Fabulous Flamingo. Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

This is the second Flamingo themed set we have (the other being Pop of Paradise which is more of a solid stamp). I really like that this new one has many different options, with three layers to the stamp. I have stamped the darker pink in Flirty Flamingo ink (I find it works best to stamp that one first), the lighter pink is Pink Pirouette and the outline in black. My background layer and water is stamped in Smoky Slate.

Stampin' Up! Rose Garden Thinlits and Beautiful You 2017 Mothers Day Card

Today I'm blogging a layered mothers day card I made for 2017, using the Stampin' Up! Beautiful You stamp set and the Rose Garden Thinlits.

Stampin Up 2017 Mothers day card using Beatiful You stamp set, rose garden thinlits, stitched shaped framelits and paper piecing technique. Card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

I have used the Affectionately Yours Designer Series Paper (loved the copper foiling in this paper) - This product is retiring, but still available until sold out in the retiring products section of my Stampin' Up! Online Store. I have used the paper piecing technique for the dress, and a block pattern on a later of Crumb Cake cardstock as the second layer on the card. See the links at the end of the post for the remaining products I have used (the greeting is from Oh So Succulent stamp set).

Grab the 10% off pricing on Stampin' Up! bundles before it's gone!

Hello there. Today I wanted to highlight some price savings for you if you have your eye on any of these bundles. Even though some or all of the products in these bundles are carrying over to the new catalogue, the 10% off bundle pricing isn't. This means if you want to get these bundles at the best price, get in before the current catalogue ends on May 31st. After that the individual components will be available, but you won't save 10%.

Here's a look at and links to all the current bundles which will return to full price after the end of the 2016/17 Annual Catalogue and 2017 Occasions Catalogue. Just click on any image to be taken to that item in my Online Stampin' Up! store. If you are shopping online, don't forget to use this month's hostess code so that you can get a free gift sent out mid May.

Saying Goodbye is Hard to Do: April Art With Heart Team Stampin' Up! Blog Hop

16387394_10154010975516735_4953759083653002070_n

Today I am participating in a Stampin’ Up! Australia blog hop along with the super talented ladies in the Art With Heart Team. We thought it would be fun to share some projects using our favourite retiring products from both the 2016-2017 Stampin’ Up! Annual and 2017 Occasions catalogues!

Select retiring products have discounts of up to 50% off but are only available until sold out. Be sure to place orders before the sun sets on these items on 31 May. You don’t want to miss out – ask me how!

My favourite retiring product by far from the last year is everything Mint Macaron! One of the product suites I have most loved pairing with Mint Macaron this year is the beautiful specialty Affectionately Yours Designer Series Paper, the coordinating Affectionately Yours Washi Tape and the Love and Affection stamp set. I have created a card with a coordinating envelope and bookmark using these products. Lots of these items are reduced in the retiring products section in my online store, but only available until sold out so get in quick.

I just LOVE the copper foil highlights on this sheet of the paper. The Washi Tape is also beautiful and has a roll included with copper foiling as well.

As well as copper, I have used the retiring Lace Doileys from the Occasions catalogue on each of the projects. For the envelope, I used the doiley as a stencil with Mint Macaron ink sponged over the top.

Finally I made a coordinating bookmark to pop into the card (I think I will be sending these projects to my Mum as a happy hello - pretty sure she isn't reading my blog!).

As hard as it is to say goodbye to favourite retiring Stampin' Up! projects for 2017, the good news is we are less than 2 weeks away from demonstrators being able to pre-order even more lovely brand new products! Join the Art with Heart team from May 2nd and you can include new catalogue goodies in your awesome value starter kit. You can join just for yourself too. Any of the girls on todays's hop (including me) will be able to help you with information about joining our team. You can also request a brand new catalogue from them (available mid to late May) if you don't already have a regular demonstrator.

Now it's time to follow the blog hop onto our next participant, Andrea Roberts. The blog hop goes full circle and there is a list of participants at the end if you get lost along the way. Until next time, happy crafting!

Stampin' Up! Moon Baby and Paper Piecing Technique

A lovely friend recently had a baby girl, so I got to make a girly card. This was lots of fun since I have a house full of boys here. I turned to the lovely Stampin' Up! Moon Baby stamp set from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue. This stamp set has been proving very popular for colouring, but I decided to use the paper-piecing technique instead.

The beautiful Sweet Sugarplum Gingham paper is from the Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper. There's also a little bit of the Falling in Love DSP in there (the small banner piece behind the banner and paper-pieced in the umbrella.
