Just Jade Birthday

Just Jade, one of the 5 new In Colors, is so pretty and I can see that I will be using it lots over the coming months. It is a true green and will go with almost every other colour in the Stampin’ Up! collection. Here is how it compares to the other greens:

Just Jade Comparison

I ordered the new In Color Designer Paper pack and thought I would show you all the different patterns available in the one pack of paper. I have cut 4 strips and adhered them to a layer of white card.

Just Jade

I took a length of ribbon, tied a bow in the centre of it and then wrapped the ends around the card and glued them behind. This layer was then glued to the Just Jade card base, then decorated with the die cut word sentiments, sprig punches and a stamped fussy cut bird. This image is coloured with Blends Markers and popped up on dimensionals.

Family Party in the Round

Tonight’s card is a bright and fun birthday card, exactly what they need to be!

Are you sick of seeing my Stamp in the Round cards? Sorry, but I am just loving them at the moment. I think I am hooked, hehe.

I stamped the background with the stars image from the Family Party stamp set, before adding some Birthday Bonanza DSP and then the stamped layer.

Tonight’s card is using the Peaceful Poppies Suite of products.

I just love the simplicity of this card, allowing the designer paper to make the statement. Adding just a couple of die cut elements and a stamped sentiment and flowers is enough to brighten it up.

My chosen Sale-a-bration product to showcase tonight is the Happy Birthday to You stamp set, free with any $90 order. I just love the images in this 5 piece stamp set. The font of the sentiments is so feminine and it is so versatile for any occasion.

Happy Birthday to You Stampin Up Saleabration 2020 by Kate Morgan, Australia p

This card is a lovely monotone in Crumb Cake and White. The layer is a piece of Crumb Cake card, cut 5mm smaller than the card front. I used the stunning Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder to emboss the layer before gluing it to the card front.

The image is stamped twice onto Crumb Cake card in Versamark ink, White Emboss Powder added and heat set. I fussy cut the entire image out and then the second one, I just fussy cut the flowers & leaves, so I could layer them on top for extra dimension.

In the past I would have coloured the flowers with the Craft White Ink and an AquaPainter, however, I used the White Chalk Marker. It was so much easier!

I added a few Rhinestones for some bling!

The inside I stamped the image in second generation stamping (stamped off once on plain paper before onto the card). The sentiment is stamped full strength.

This next card is created exactly the same way, however, I added some colour with Stampin’ Blends Markers to the flowers for a beautiful spot of colour. I changed up the Rhinestones with Champagne ones!

I even coloured the cake stand on this one to help it stand out more.

Sneak Peek of Timeless Tulips

One week to Christmas, where has this year gone? It has flown by so quickly and the kids finish school on Friday, so they will be around to help out prior to Christmas Day celebrations and my brother-in-laws home. What are you doing for Christmas?

Tonight I have a sneak peek of the Stamp set we received at OnStage last month, Timeless Tulips. It also has a coordinating punch, so no need to fussy cut the tulips, yay!

This is a Pear Pizzazz card base and then stamping onto Whisper White with Pear Pizzazz and Rococo Rose ink. Stamp 3 extra large tulips and 2 leaves and punch out. Add these with dimensionals once the card is put together. Linen thread is wrapped around twice and tied in a bow. The sentiment is also from the same set and added with mini dimensionals.

I hope you are ready for Christmas, then early next year, Stampin’ Up!s Sale-a-bration begins!

Mosaic Mood in Sunburst

I’ve used the Mosaic Mood DSP from the Annual catalogue for this card tonight. This is the Sunburst Technique and is a great way to showcase lots of patterns. I cut 4 different patterns of 6” x 1½” and cut each of those diagonally. Take a piece of scrap card stock and cut it 5mm smaller than your card front, cover it with Snail Adhesive. Start adding your pattern pieces from the bottom (the paper will over-hang off the card). Once you have covered the card, trim the excess off from around the card with your trimmer or scissors.

I covered the corner with a Stitched Circle Framelit in Blushing Bride and trimmed the excess hanging over the edge. The bird is fussy cut from one of the pieces of DSP and added with dimensionals. This layer is added to the Garden Green card base.

Sip Sip Hooray!

Tonight I have used the Sip Sip Hooray Bundle from the Holiday catalogue. I purchased this bundle because it will be so handy for many different occasions; Christmas, Birthdays, Weddings, Engagements, any form of celebration!

Navy and Gold also is very rich and coordinates so well. Behind those bubbles is Gold Foil which really shimmers, but is so hard to photograph. The images of the glasses are stamped in the new Delicata Metallic Golden Glitz ink.

Heirloom texture and embossing

When I started this card, I had the White card embossed with the Scripty Embossing Folder and the Tasteful backgrounds dies cut in Copper Foil and glued to the centre, but then I was stuck for inspiration on how to continue and finish this card.

Anyway, after a few weeks on the sidelines, it finally came to me like a light bulb moment, so to speak! I wanted to keep it delicate and so added the Petal Pink card base and then the oval Heirloom 3D Embossing folder and die to frame the copper picture.

I also purchased the Ornate Frames Dies from the Holiday catalogue in my pre-order, so I got those out and the Celestial Copper ink pad and stamped Happy Birthday, because we all need plenty of those cards! This new metallic ink pad dries really well and won’t smudge if left to dry. You can use the Heat Tool to dry it quicker, but it is so much better than the old Metallic Encore ink pads we used to have. I will have to place another order to add the Silver and Gold ones to my stash now I know how good they are!

I tied a bow with some copper trim and added it to the centre with a glue dot. So in the end, I was very happy with how this turned out. What do you think?
