Farewell Carousel Birthday

This is my last retiring Occasions Catalogue product card and features the Carousel Birthday stamp set and co-ordinate Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Series Paper which was fun bundle to use over the past few months.


I started this card using a Stampin' Up! Early Espresso card base.  I then layered some Calypso Coral card stock which had been stamped with tents from the Carousel Birthday stamp set.  A narrow strip of Cupcakes & Carousels DSP was adhered to the bottom of the card stock.  The focal label and ribbon are from the Cupcakes & Carousels Embellishment kit.   I stamped the tents and 'Happy Birthday' from the That's The Tag stamp set onto the label before adhering it to the card.  This was a quick and easy card to make.

Nailed It Father's Day card

One of my favourite sets in the Stampin' Up! 2017 Occasions Catalogue for masculine cards is the retiring Nailed It bundle.  Here's a Father's Day card made using the Nailed It stamp set.


To create this card I started with a Stampin' Up! Basic Black card base and adhered a layer of Urban Underground Designer Series Paper (DSP) on top.  I then took a smaller piece of Very Vanilla card stock and using my Stampin' Write Markers, directly coloured the various tool stamps. When using this marker direct to stamp technique, don't forget to 'huff/breathe' onto your stamp to reactivate the ink just before stamping.  I then cut the Very Vanilla card stock diagonally and adhered it to the card base with some additional DSP trim too.  The Happy Father's Day sentiment was again stamped  using the marker direct to stamp technique.  Some linen thread, DSP flags and Urban Underground embellishments completes the card.

Delightful Mother's Day sneak peek

This Sunday is Mother's Day in Australia and I'd like to wish all the Mums a very Happy Mother's Day.   I made this card for my Mum using the new Stampin' Up! Delightful Daisy suite and Happy Birthday Thinlits which will be available from 1 June 2017.

http://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/default.aspx?dbwsdemoid=4011749

To make this card I started with a Stampin' Up! Daffodil Delight card base.  I then layered Whisper White card stock and Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper (DSP) on top.  A smaller strip of Delightful Daisy DSP was cut and some Daffodil Delight Double Stitched ribbon was added down the centre of the DSP and adhered to the card base.  I then used the Daisy Delight stamp set to stamp the daisies, punched them out using the Daisy Punch and layered them together.  I stamped the leaves in Old Olive ink onto Old Olive card stock and tucked them under the daisy.  The Mother's Day sentiment is from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set and was punched out using the Classic Label Punch.  Two pearls were then added to each end of the sentiment.  The 'Happy' was diecut using the new Happy Birthday Thinlits three times.  It was easy to cut off the 'Birthday' part of the thinlit so I could just use the Happy word.  I layered the three Happy diecuts together to give it some height before adhering it to the card base.

All products used on this card have been listed below - just click on the picture and it will take you to my online shop where they can be viewed and purchased.  The Delightful Daisy producct suite and Happy Birthday Thinlits are in the new Stampin' Up! 2017-18 Annual Catalogue and will be available in my online store from 1 June 2017.

Eastern Palace suite

One of my favourite product suites in the up-coming Stampin' Up! 2017-18 Annual Catalogue is the Eastern Palace suite



Instead of having to wait until 1 June 2017 to get this product suite, Stampin' Up! are offering two bundles and some free products with each bundle purchased during May 2017.

The first bundle is the Eastern Palace Premier bundle. Here's what's included in this bundle.

I couldn't resist this product suite and here's a picture of my Premier bundle.  A packet of the new Thick Very Vanilla cardstock and co-ordinating Very Vanilla envelopes were free with this bundle.




I've prepared the sample board below which shows you only some of the things you can do with the Eastern Palace Medallion thinlits dies which are included in the Premier bundle.  Oh my - there are so many terrific combinations with the die set alone!

The Eastern Palace products will be available individually or as listed in the catalogue from 1 June, but why not get the bundle now and enjoy the free gifts available only during May.

Party on birthday card

Party on with the Stampin' Up! Balloon Adventures bundle to make fun cards for everyone.

https://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/ProductDetails.aspx?productID=144708&dbwsdemoid=4011749

The Stampin' Up! Balloon Popup Thinlits dies normally create a popup on the inside of the card, but I decided just to use the centre focal piece for the front of my card.  You may remember the card below from a few weeks ago which showed you the standard way of using one of the dies out of this set.

http://angelaspaperarts.blogspot.com.au/2017/03/balloon-popup-surprise-card.html

To create the new card, I started with a Stampin' Up! Pacific Point card base and added some of the Party Animal Designer Series Paper onto the card.  I then used the Balloon Pop-up thinlits onto a smaller piece of Tangerine Tango card stock to diecut the centre focal piece.  Balloons were stamped or diecut for the centre piece.  The Party On sentiment was stamped onto Whisper White and layered onto the focal piece too.  Final touches of some enamel shapes and a metallic party hat from the Party Animal Embellishments completes the card. The Balloon Adventures stamp set and Balloon Popup thinlits dies are sadly retiring on 31 May 2017 and are only available while stock lasts.

The products used on this card have been listed below - just click on the picture and it will take you to my online store where the product may be purchased. Workshops and papercrafting classes are also available - please contact me for details.
