Stampin' Up! Dragonfly Dreams and Detailed Dragonfly Thinlit Dies - a sneak peek from Occasions 2017

Hello lovely stampers. Today I am showing you a couple of sneak peeks from an upcoming bundle in the 2017 Occasions Catalogue from Stampin' Up! (start 4th January, request your copy HERE). The stamp set is called Dragonfly Dreams, and the Thinlits are Detailed Dragonfly Thinlit Dies. I love dragonflies, so this set really caught my eye for pre-order (one of the great Demonstrator perks).

Dragonfly Dreams birthday card from Stampin Up 2017 Occasions Catalogue. Card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

I created an ombre effect with ink on watercolour paper (Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry and Elegant Eggplant) and then when that was dry I cut the dragonflies from that using my Bigshot and the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits. I also stamped the dragonflies on the white panel (Sahara Sand stamped off once). I created the embellishments by colouring our adhesive pearls using a Bronze Sharpie.

Dragonfly Dreams birthday card from Stampin Up 2017 Occasions Catalogue. Card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

For this card, I clear embossed the dragonflies before I did the ombre wash. Embossing onto watercolour paper doesnt give you the most perfect image because of the roughness of the paper, but I was quite happy to have that effect on this card. 

Dragonfly Dreams birthday card from Stampin Up 2017 Occasions Catalogue. Card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

I added a little something to this card by cutting one of the detailed dragonfly Thinlit dies in copper foil.

Hope you like today's cards. I have lots to show you over the coming month!

See you again soon,

Art With Heart Team Blog Hop: It's Beginning To Look a Lot Like Christmas

Team Blog Hop Logo 300px wide

Today some of my fabulous Art with Heart Stampin’ Up! team girls have created some amazing Christmas projects to inspire you with the theme, It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! We have tags, gift bags, teacher gift ideas, decorations and many more fun projects to create this holiday season.

I chose some gift wrapping options as my projects for this blog hop. First up I have some cute gift tags I made using the 2" x 2" cards in Project Life Hello December Accessory Kit (on special, along with the matching card kit until 11.50pm AEST Monday November 28th this week for 30% off). I love the colours in these and can't wait to see how great they looked on my Christmas gifts under the tree. To make these, I just cut pieces of  cardstock 6cm x 12cm and scored in the centre. Easy peasy!

Stampin Up Project Life Hello December gift cards by Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia for Art with Heart Team Bog Hop

The stars and the tree embellishments are included in the accessory pack. I just coloured the tree with a Bronze Sharpie for some added interest (bit obsessed with the copper look this year).

Next up I have a small quick and easy gift idea which fits 3 Lindt chocolate balls in perfectly. These little Christmas favors would be great for the Christmas table, co-workers, social group members and more. You can buy the clear boxes in packs of 16 for just $13.25 (Item 141699 Clear Tiny Treat Boxes) so they are very economical. I just cut three pieces of DSP 9.5cm x 4.5cm and scored in half and placed in the base and up the side on 3 sides (leaving the front side open). I then just attached a belly band of coordinating DSP and made a bow using the Bow Builder Punch.

My final project is a decorated gift box (I recycled one of the boxes I received charms in at OnStage). I love Poinsettias. They remind me of my grandmother. The Festive Flower punch (10% off in this week's Online Extravaganza sale) has all the bits for this flower (and there's a video showing you how to use it on the Stampin' Up! You Tube channel). If you want to stamp the leaf and flower veins, the Reason for the Season stamp set is the coordinating set.

Stampin' Up! Project Life Hello December 2016 Christmas Cards

Love love love the colours in this years Stampin' Up! Project Life Hello December Card Kit and matching Accessory Kit (both on special for 30% off this week). As well as being perfect for December Daily albums, they are also great for general Christmas scrapbooking. They also make fabulous elements for Christmas Cards. Here's a bunch of  cards I whipped up last night.

Stampin' Up! Project Life Hello December 2016 Christmas Cards by Claire Daly Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

Let's look at each card individually. This first card was super simple! The base is out 12x12" kraft cardstock, and I have stamped a few stars on it with Crumb Cake ink. I then just added strips of Candy Cane Lane washi tape, cut out the circle from one of the 3x4" cards and popped it on the card with Dimensionals. The little tree is from the accessory pack and has been coloured with a Bronze Sharpie.

Stampin' Up! Project Life Hello December 2016 Christmas Cards by Claire Daly Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

For this second card (I think this one is my favourite), I just used 5 of the 2" x 2" cards in the accessory pack. The centre card is matted and then raised up with Dimensionals. I have used the largest square in the Stitched Shapes Framelits underneath the centre square. The greeting is from Christmas Magic in the Holiday Catalogue.

Stampin' Up! Project Life Hello December 2016 Christmas Cards by Claire Daly Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

For this one, I used Merriest Wishes background stamp in Cherry Cobbler onto Cherry Cobbler cardstock for the base. I then added one of the 3x4" cards attached with Washi tape. The stars on top of the tree are enamel shape stars coloured with a Bronze Sharpie. and the greeting is from Stitched with Cheer in the Holiday Catalogue. I have attached some Copper metallic thread under the greeting for some added texture.

Stampin' Up! Project Life Hello December 2016 Christmas Cards by Claire Daly Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

For this one, I have used a 6x4" card as the second layer and then one of the printed transparencies from the card kit as a second layer. Then I have just popped on a couple of sticker banners from the accessory kit and a punched silver glimmer star. The smaller silver stars are from the accessory pack as well.

Stampin' Up! Project Life Hello December 2016 Christmas Cards by Claire Daly Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

I just love the quote on this final card, it's so what Christmas is about to me. The second layer on this one is a 6x4" card, and the 3x4" card with the quote on is just attached with Candy Cane lane Washi tape. The circle greeting is from the accessory pack sticker sheet and it is on a very thin mat of Emerald Envy cardstock. I have also attached some Emerald Envy stars from the 2016-18 In Colour enamel shape pack.

Stampin' Up! Scrapbooking Layout from OnStage Live 2016 using new Falling in Love DSP

I haven't had a chance to give a full run down of the recent OnStage Live training event in Brisbane early November (promise it's still coming), but I did make this scrapbooking layout of the Centre Stage leaders event on the Thursday night. I do this every year so I can capture a photo of my Silver Elite and above team members. This year there were 7 of us attending.

I have used a beautiful soon to be released designer series paper from the Stampin' Up! 2017 Occasions Catalogue, called Falling in Love. The other bits and pieces were things that were decorating our table place during the night, or attached to our beautiful gift.

Stampin' Up! Scrapbooking Layout using Falling in Love DSP from Upcoming Occasions 2017 Catalogue. Page by Claire Daly Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

I love the Carousel theme (we have a great bundle coming soon with this theme) and I love that we managed to catch a glimpse of the Brisbane Wheel in our group photo. Here are a few close ups of the layout elements.

The Swirly Scribbles Thinlits are great for using on scrapbooking layouts.

The Fancy Frost Sequins in the Holiday Catalogue coordinate really well with these products too.

A nifty folding Christmas card with room for a family photo.

I have a cool project for you today, which I cased from a lovely project I saw on Lyssa Griffin Zwolanek (Song of my Heart Stampers) and I'll link to Lyssa's video after I show you the card.

It starts as a lovely folded card with ribbon tie at the side.

Squash card 2

Then it opens up to this. My plan would be to put a family photo in the top left corner (the overall cardstock size of mine is 8" x 8" but you could make them bigger or smaller too).

Squash card 3

This is what the back looks like.

Squash card 4

and here's a couple of shots of the closing folds:

Squash 6

Lyssa is a very lovely lady and talented stamper who lives in the US. I was thrilled to finally meet her face to face when I attended the Mediterranean Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip this year (I ambushed her for a photo in the hotel lobby, lol).

Lyssa

You can see Lyssa's step by step video to create these cool cards HERE. Enjoy!

Barcelona Project Life Album using Stampin' Up! Hello Lovely Card Collection & Accessory Pack

Hello friends. Today I have some Memory Keeping for you :)

Earlier this year my family and I were lucky enough to spend a week in Barcelona ahead of the Stampin' Up! Mediterranean Incentive Trip. I have to say Barcelona was never on my bucket list, but wow, what an amazing City! So vibrant and cultural and colourful. I loved it!

I started Stampin' Up! as a Scrapbooker, and memory keeping has been a huge part of my Stampin' Up! journey. I love using stamps in my memory keeping, and the colour coordination Stampin' Up! offers is fabulous for scrapbookers. I also love the pocket scrapbooking trend, so was excited when Stampin' Up! partnered with Becky Higgins to release an official suite of Project Life products.

I have used the Hello Lovely Project Life by Stampin' Up! card collection and accessory pack on this album, along with lots of memorabilia from my trip and a few word / quote stickers (you will notice I use these LOTS in memory keeping and I have a big stash!).

Here's a look at some pages of my album. For the cover page I just did a 12x12" layout and then clipped some travel documents on the back. The quote top left was from one of the pillow gifts we got on the Stampin' Up! trip. I really loved this quote. The cover page is going to cover both the Barcelona portion as well as the cruise portion of my trip, hence why we have the itinerary on the reverse.

Here's some of the pages (I completed 35 pages including the 2 cover pages). I loved all the beautiful plants and flowers in Barcelona. The balconies were beautiful and La Ramblas had so many flower, plant and seed stalls.

I ended up with lots of food pictures as food is a huge part of the journey in Spain!

Art With Heart Team Blog Hop: Showcasing Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper on Sale

Team Blog Hop Logo 300px wideToday some of my Art with Heart Stampin’ Up! team girls are sharing some wonderful ideas to inspire you with our Designer Series Papers. This month is the start of the new Stampin' Up! year and we have a special promotion on our Designer Series Paper, buy 3 get 1 FREE for the month of October and there is no limit! You have come here from Rebecca Jacavou, one of the talented stampers on my team. Blogs are full circle so just keep hopping and there in a full list of participants at the end as well.

Dsp special

I am featuring the lovely Fruit Stand Designer Series paper. To be honest, this wasn't a paper that immediately caught my eye, but I received a small sample in a team product share and when I was looking for a paper to use for this card set, the bright colours really caught my eye and now I really like and have ordered a whole pack as part of the special so I can use more of it!

My project is a card box which holds four mini cards and envelopes. The box and envelopes are made using our Envelope Punch Board.

Mini card box and cards / enveloes made with Envelope Punch Box using Fruit Stand DSP by Claire Daly Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

The box and envelope colour is Cucumber Crush and the card colour Flirty Flamingo which coordinate perfectly with the Fruit Stand DSP. The other colours featured in the DSP are Daffodil Delight, Peekaboo Peach, Pear Pizazz, Tangerine Tango, Watermelon Wonder and Whisper White.

The box holds four mini cards and handmade envelopes. The cards are 3.5" x 3.5" and the envelopes are made using the Envelope Punch Board starting with a piece of 6x6" DSP from the 2015-2016 InColour Paper Stack.

Mini card box and cards / enveloes made with Envelope Punch Box using Fruit Stand DSP by Claire Daly Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

Here's some quick instructions to make the card box using the Envelope Punch Board.

Start with a piece of cardstock 8" x 8". Stamp on this if you wish. I have stamped some of the smaller images from Blooms and Wishes stamp set using Cucumber Crush ink.

Box 1

Place the top left corner at the 3.5" mark on the punch board. Score and punch.

Box 2

Move the top left corner I" to the left (to the 4.5" position) and score and punch again.

Box 3

Rotate the cardstock 90 degrees anticlockwise. You don't need to pay attention to the ruler at the top anymore, just line up each of the score marks and punch and score.

Box 4

Rotate and do this on the other two sides. Using a pair of paper snips, cut sideways on the bottom tabs so they fold inwards, and cut down on the top tabs so they fold downwards as shown.

Box 5

Use a bone folder to crease each of the scored lines, Apply adhesive to the outside of the bottom flap.

Box5a

Fold to close the side flaps over the bottom tab (place your bone folder inside the box and press down on a flat surface to apply pressure for better adhesion). The box closes with the addition of a belly band.

Box 6

Faux Silk 2016 Christmas Card using Stampin' Up! Holly Berry Happiness

Hello stampers, I'm back to Christmas cards today. The faux silk stamping technique (described below) makes a great textured background for Christmas cards. It's super simple to do so you could easily do a few at a time. I have used Holly Berry Happiness stamp set from the 2016 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue, which worked really well for the repetitive effect I wanted.

My colours are Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green, with gold in the embossed greeting (also from the Holly Berry Happiness stamp set) and coiled twine under the greeting.

Stampin Up 2016 Christmas card using faux silk technique and Holly Berry Happiness stamp set. Card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

Faux Silk Technique Instructions:

  1. Cut a piece of tissue paper a couple of centimeters (or an inch if you are metric) larger than the cardstock you are adhering it to. My tissue paper is adhered to a piece of Whisper White in the image above.
  2. Stamp your images over the tissue paper. Allow to dry a couple of minutes.
  3. Screw the tissue paper up in a tight ball, and then very carefully unravel the paper. Smooth it out but not completely as you still want a few creases left.
  4. Using a glue-stick, apply glue all over the cardstock piece you are going to adhere the tissue paper to.
  5. Adhere the tissue paper, leaving a few creases as shown. Wrap the excess tissue paper around to the back of the cardstock and adhere with the glue-stick (this gives a neater finish than trimming).

That' all there is to it! Easy isn't it?

Here's a closer look at the Holly Berry Happiness stamp set (you can view all of the products I have used today by using my online store product links at the end of the post).

Holly Berry Happiness available from my online Stampin Up store in Australia

Stampin' Up! Moroccan Designer Series Paper for a masculine Thinking of You handmade card.

Hello stampers. Happy Monday.

I have to tell you Emerald Envy has TOTALLY taken me by surprise and crept in to firmly cement itself as one of my few favourite Stampin' Up! colours at the moment. I'm also a big fan of Early Espresso, which is one of the reasons I am loving the Moroccan Designer Series Paper from the Stampin' Up! 2016 Annual Catalogue. 

Stampin Up Moroccan Nights stamp set and Moroccan DSP. Masculine thinking of you card by Claire Daly Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

I found the images in the stamp set perfect for the masculine card I was making. I particularly love the border stamp and how it echoes the patterns on this piece of DSP.

Stampin Up Moroccan Nights stamp set and Moroccan DSP. Masculine thinking of you card by Claire Daly Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

For my masculine embellishments, I have used our Burlap Trim and Linen Thread together, and then used a Bronze Sharpie to colour some of the White Perfect Accents - this gives a great copper embellishment and copper is so on trend right now!
