The birds and flowers on my cards have all been cut from the DSP.

For my second card, I have used some of the Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP, and overlaid a piece of embossed Vellum, making the DSP more subtle.  Again, the bird and flowers were cut from the Bird Ballad DSP.

And my third card is one I have shared before in a previous post, but I thought I would go nicely as a set with these two.

I couldn’t resist this gorgeous stamp set, and am having so much fun colouring the images and making cards with it.
This time I have combined it with the Night Before Christmas Designer Series Papers.

Elfie Night Before Christmas DSP

Elfie has been fussy cut after I coloured him using Stampin’ Blends.
I have also added heaps of sparkle over the white areas and the yellow, using some Wink of Stella.

And did you see that “Merry Christmas” ribbon in the catalogue?
Don’t have a catalogue yet?
Let me know if you are in Australia, I am happy to send one to you.

Now I have a special treat for you.
Recently a very talented lady joined my Stampin’ Up! team.  Tammy Prince is fairly new to cardmaking and stamping, but she is so very creative. And I thought I would let her share some of her work with you.  Here is her gorgeous card for this blog hop.
Tammy Christmas 1

Thanks for agreeing to share your creativity with us Tammy, and welcome to the team.
Tammy has used some of the gorgeous Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper, along with the Frosted Frames dies, and heaps of sparkle using Shimmery Crystal Effects and Ice Stampin’ Glitter.

Be sure to head to Claire’s blog, where you can find a list of all the participants in the Blog Hop.

If you are in Australia and are interested in joining my small but growing team of friendly crafters, then please reach out to me via email, or you can join online here.
Happy Stamping!

Art With Heart Blog Hop – New In Colours


64734605_10219201145162081_6996690712334958592_n

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring an In Colour theme. Check out the new 2019 – 2021 In Colours and lets not forget the current 2018 – 2020 In Colours. If you would like a copy of the 2019 – 2020 annual catalogue, contact any of the girls on the blog hop and we will get in touch with you.

We have been showcasing the newest In Colours one at a time over the last few weeks, now it’s time to see even more inspiration from the Art With Heart team.

I have made a card using each of the 2019-21 In Colours, since I can’t decide which is my favourite of these colours, I really love each of them.  My cards also feature some of the new Designer Series Papers, Woven Threads DSP, and also the Pressed Petals DSP.

First up, the gorgeous Pretty Peacock.
Tasteful Textures Card 1

Lots of sponging and distressing on this card, and I have combined the Pretty Peacock with Very Vanilla cardstock and Crumb Cake ink.  The stamp set that I have used in the background is Tasteful Textures, and the Dies are the Tasteful Backgrounds.

Next is Terracotta Tile.
Another versatile colour that will be great for creating masculine cards!!
Woven Threads DSP 1
Again, I have used the Tasteful Textures and Tasteful Backgrounds, combined with the Woven Threads DSP, and used Very Vanilla cardstock with Crumb Cake ink.
It may be difficult to see in the photo, but I have stamped on the DSP with the line stamp from Tasteful Textures to give the DSP a little more, well…. texture!
And I have also stamped with the same stamp behind the die cut area.

Next, Rococo Rose.  So pretty!
Pressed Petals DSP Card 1
I have gone with a different DSP this time, Pressed Petals DSP.  All of the gorgeous flowers on my card are just panels of the DSP.
Again, heaps of distressing and sponging, and layers but only a very little stamping.

A quick and easy card using Seaside Spray.

Woven Threads Card 1

The Designer Series Papers make it so easy to create gorgeous cards with very little effort.  This card has a layer of  the Woven Threads DSP over some Seaside Spray, which is mounted onto a white card base.  Just a little Bakers Twine and some Metallic Pearls. Too easy!

And last but definitely not least, the beautiful Purple Posy.

Tasteful Backgrounds Daisies Card

I have used Purple Posy cardstock as the base for this card, then a layer of Woven Threads DSP, and then the white has been die cut using the Tasteful Backgrounds Dies. The pearls in the centre of each flower have been coloured with Stampin’ Blenders to match.

That’s it from me for today.

Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the very talented Tina Gillespie

May-blog-hop

There are just so many gorgeous new goodies, new ideas, new inspiration in the 2019 – 2020 Stampin’ Up! Annual catalogue, and so many that I want to create with.
But I decided to just choose the one that I love most (athough there are a few that are competing for that first place), the gorgeous new Designer Series Papers called Perennial Essence.
I love the colour combination in these papers, and the beautiful designs, and so I have made a series of cards using the papers.

May Bloghop 2

Such divine colours!!  Of course I love them with all the purples and pinks.
