Stampin' Up! Perched in A Tree 2022 Christmas Card

Hello friends. 

It feels like ages since I have blogged, but in reality it's only been a week. It was production week at my son's high school last week, and he had a minor lead, along with my eldest (now 2 years post high school) was the technical director for the show, so of course I had to attend every show! Then I managed to pick up a respiratory bug (thankfully not Covid) that has hit me hard the last 3 days. Bring on the sunshine I say (in Australia we are in the last month of winter). 

I do have plenty of cards I 'prepared earlier' and have yet to share on my blog though. 

I made this Christmas card for my subscriber tutorials last week. It features the new Perched in a Tree bundle from the Stampin' Up! July to December Mini Catalogue.

I used the dies in the bundle to create a mask, and then blended some Gray Granite ink to create the background.

I then ran the whole piece through the Timber 3D Embossing Folder (choose this folder as free gift with a $90 order during Saleabration which ends on 31st August). You can see all the Saleabration choices currently available HERE.

The branch and the bird have been water coloured using ink from my ink pad lids, and Water Painters. I used Gray Granite for the branch, and Gray Granite, Basic Gray and Blackberry Bliss for the bird.

I really loved how this Christmas card turned out. The Perched in a Tree bundle is gorgeous, and you can even the earn the dies in the bundle (called the Aspen Tree Dies) as a free gift with a $180 spend (before postage) during Saleabration which ends on August 31st. You can see all the Saleabration choices currently available HERE.

I hope you like today's card. You can find all of the products I have used in my online store, or the paper copy of the July to December Mini Catalogue.

Stampin' Up! He's All That Bundle, He's the Man Suite and the August Pack of Pretties.

Hello friends.

I'm back with Claire's Pack of Pretties this month - a coordinated collection of my favourite Stampin' Up! papercraft products for a great price! This months kit is all about masculine cards and is only $31 including postage! It is built around the He's the Man Suite in the 2022-23 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue (Note: I have changed the name from 'Claire's Box of Pretties' to 'Claire's Pack of Pretties' to reflect a change in the packaging so I can keep the postage as low as possible).

You can get all the details HERE of exactly what's included in the August pack, which optional add-on products I think are a great match, and how to register and pay. Registrations close August 10th. As this kit is physical product, it's limited to Australian residents, but hobby demonstrators are also welcome to register if you just want a share of the suite at a lower price.

Here are some projects I have made using these products. Stay tuned for lots more during the month of August. Grab the August Pack of Pretties so you can play along!

This masculine thank you card uses the He's the Man DSP (in pack), die cuts (in pack), Rustic Metallic Adhesive Backed Gems (in pack) and a sentiment from Wildlife Wonder stamp set (optional add on). The base cardstock is Sahara sand (in pack), the greeting is stamped in Early Espresso ink (optional add on) and I used Stylish Shapes dies (a great all round versatile die set with 3 different stitched shapes - see links at end of post) to die cut a circle from one of the labels in the die cut sheet included with the DSP.

This masculine birthday card uses the He's the Man DSP (in pack), Rustic Metallic Adhesive Backed Gems (in pack), twine from Bakers Twine Essentials Pack and a sentiment and image from Wildlife Wonder stamp set (optional add on). Base card is Early Espresso (in pack) and stamping is in Early Espresso ink (optional add-on).

This masculine birthday card is for the car lovers and was quick and easy. It uses He's the Man DSP (in pack), Rustic Metallic Adhesive Backed Gems (in pack), and the He's All That bundle (optional add-on). The image from the stamp set is stamped in Early Espresso onto Sahara Sand cardstock (I was out of reinker when I stamped this - fixed now!). The base card for this one is Sahara Sand (in pack).

This masculine birthday card was another quick and easy one. It uses the He's the Man DSP (in pack), He's the man die cuts (in pack), and the Rustic Metallic Adhesive Backed Gems (in pack) . The base cardstock is Sahara Sand (in pack), and I used Stylish Shapes dies (a great all round versatile die set with 3 different stitched shapes - see links at end of post) to die cut the two flag end banners (under the die cut) from the DSP.

This final card is one I made a little while ago in my video tutorial demonstrating how to use masking paper. It uses the Campology stamp set (optional add-on), the He's the Man DSP (in pack), the Rustic Metallic Adhesive Backed Gems (in pack)  and the Bakers Twine Essentials Pack. The base cardstock is Mint Macaron (in pack), with some early Espresso cardstock (in pack) as a mat. I have used Mint Macaron ink pad (optional add-on) to stamp the trees (I added some Garden Green highlights with a marker), and stamped the tent in Black Stazon before watercolouring with Early Espresso ink pad, Crumb Cake ink pad and Water Painters. The video shows you how I used masking paper to position the tent in front of the trees (this card demonstration starts at 2:19 in the video).

I hope you like these masculine cards. Pin this image so you can come back to it, and please consider registering for the He's the Man August Pack of Pretties (starting at just $31 including postage) so you can recreate some of these projects at home. Registrations close August 10th (Australian residents only).
