SEE MY SWAPS FROM THE 2020 ANNUAL STAMPIN’ UP! CATALOGUE!

The last 2 posts I have shared swaps that I received from a Card Swap I joined in on with the 2020 Stampin’ Up! Catalogue. If you missed them do pop back and see them in the last posts.

Today I thought I would share more details on the cards I created for the swaps.

This card was for the Round 1 Swap Group. I have used the set Comfort and Hope.

I picked the colours for this card from some of the Designer Series Paper from last year I think.  Now I can’t remember which pack.  The colours are Mint Macaron, Blackberry Bliss and Mango Melody.  I wouldn’t have thought to put these colours together.

The Stitched circle with the swirly circles needed something underneath and I didn’t have any Blackberry Bliss Ribbon so I diecut 2 little banners from the Tasteful Labels Dies set and added them underneath.  It just adds another element.

I love sending cards in the mail “Just Because” so I really like this Paper Hug sentiment.

My swap card for Round 2 Group  I used the Tasteful Touches Bundle.

The colours used were Crumb Cake and Mint Macaron. When I was assembling the card I thought it was missed something so I added a vellum scallop circle using the die in the Tasteful Labels Dies set. It helps “ground” the flower. I used one of the other dies in the set to diecut the white  card with the flower stamped on it.

The Mint Macaron card was embossed with the Greenery Embossing Folder.  I added a little Linen Thread bow to finish it off.

I love joining in swaps and seeing all the amazing creations that I receive. It’s great getting the new ideas.

Have a great week. I hope it’s a creative one for you.

2020 ANNUAL CATALOGUE SWAPS – ROUND 2!

Yesterday I shared some Card Swaps that I received recently.  That was Round 1 of the Swaps.  If you missed that be sure to head back a post.

Today is Round 2.  I think the Forever Fern Bundle was a popular choice for this round. Once again I am not mentioning individual names for each swap but Thank You to those who swapped with me.

Lots of flowery cards.  The card on the top left on the photos above is a Dutch Fold card which is cool.  The one below that is a shaker card with the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle. My swap for this round is the card on the bottom right in the photo just above with the Tasteful Touches Bundle.

I will share more details on my swaps in next post so be sure to stop by.

Happy Stamping,

Jenny

PS  Don’t forget it’s Bonus Days time.  Every $90 you spend in July you receive a $9 voucher to redeem in August.  If you need help to place your order I am happy to help you.

BLOSSOMS IN BLOOM!

A few weeks ago I was playing around with the Blossoms in Bloom bundle.  I have had a lot of fun with it.  I have shared some cards already but thought it was time for some more.

The stamps are great just to simply stamp on your card.

I used Balmy Blue for the flowers.  Then it has the individual leaves stamped in Mossy Meadow, and flower centres stamped in Crushed Curry that you can add to your image.  There are so many different ways of building on your flowers when using this set.

You can give this simple card a little POP though.  For the card below I have diecut the ‘thin’ outline flower die in black card. The black outline highlights the flowers and really lifts it don’t you think??

Stampin' Up! Blossoms in Bloom

TIP: When creating the card using the outline diecut you might like to stamp the flowers first.  Then lay the black diecut outline on to the card and with a pencil lightly outline where the leaves and smaller flowers go.  Then you can remove the diecut and stamp in the leaves and flowers (if you are using them) so they will be in position where they would need to go to line up with the die.  NOTE: I didn’t do that on this card but learnt that’s what should be done when stamping it.  I will share another card later where I did this.

The Blossoms in Bloom Bundle is gorgeous. Do you have it yet? I think it’s a must have with these pretty flowers that you can layer together and there are sentiments for many of your regular occasions.

In Australia? If you would love to order this for your “collection” or any of the other fantastic Stampin’ Up! products I would love to help you out.  You can order online through my store or you can contact me directly on 0439 844574 and I will fix it all up for you with little stress.

Thank  you so much.  I will pop a little something in the mail for you including a card kit to create this card so be sure not to mark your order anonymous.  🙂

Have a great day and be safe my friends,

SUNDAY SUITES – FLOWERS FOR EVERY SEASON!

I have been sharing recently about some of the products in the Flowers For Every Season Suite particularly the lovely Sunflowers.  I thought for Sunday Suites today we will look closer at all the products in the suite.

There are 2 different bundles within the suite.  The Jar of Flowers and the Celebrate Sunflowers. Both of them co-ordinate with the other elements like the paper and the ribbon.

Here is all that is included in the Flowers For Every Season Suite.  It retails for $313.25 AUD  You can buy the full suite or the different elements on their own.

The Flowers for Every Season Suite Collection features gorgeous flowers representing each of the four seasons.  You will be able to make projects for many different occasions.

You can get a whole collection of coordinating products, including clear stamps and rubber stamps, beautiful floral paper, craft jewels, craft ribbon, and more!

The Flowers for Every Season Suite Collection includes (and it’s a lot!) –

* Jar Punch

Let’s look at them closer.

The Celebrate Sunflowers bundle I have featured a lot.  I love the detailed sunflowers in the die set.

The Jar of Flowers Bundle with the stamp set and the cool punch.

The Jar Punch will punch the little jar shapes out and co-ordinates with the jar in the Jar of Flowers stamp set.  It will punch the hole too so you can insert the Jar Shaker Domes.  It’s very cool.

I have seen little notepads created by punching out some pieces of white printer paper and bundling them up and help together with a hole punched in with a ring.  Very clever! I’m sure there are lots of other great uses for it.

The Jar Shaker Domes can be added in to your project with the jar has been punched.  They can then be filled with all matter of items.  Only limited to your imagination really. (Check the sample further below).

The Flowers For Every Season Designer Series Paper pack IS ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!! I have to say I wasn’t sure at first as the flowers were all very bright and some are very big but they are beautiful.

They will create cards in no time by simply adding them to the front of the card on their own and just add a sentiment.  But they will also work very nicely with either of the stamps in the suite too.

There are 48 sheets of patterned paper: 4 each of 12 double-sided designs and in 6″ x 6″ (15.2 x 15.2 cm) size.

The colours are Bumblebee, Cinnamon Cider, Just Jade, Magenta Madness, Misty Moonlight, Poppy Parade, Whisper White

The colours are Bumblebee, Cinnamon Cider, Just Jade, Magenta Madness, Misty Moonlight, Poppy Parade, Whisper White.  Available for $19.25 AUD  You can use these cards for your memory Keeping but they will work so well

In addition to all these products there is also the Gems and the Ribbon Combo Pack.

The Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack This contains  3 different types of ribbon in the pack including Just Jade Gingham Ribbon, Whisper White Faux Linen Ribbon and Misty Moonlight/silver Baker’s Twine.

Now for some samples.  These are created by Stampin’ Up! Artists. They really showcase how all the gorgeous products work together.

Check below how you can fill these cute Jar Shaker Domes.  What fun different shakers you can create with them.

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #105 – LINING UP THE SUNFLOWER STAMP AND DIES!

If you have the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle do you find it a little frustrating to line up the sunflower die with the stamp OR to even put the stamp back in the stamp case after you have finished?? I have to say I find it quite frustrating – and time consuming. 🙂

I came up with a little tip to reduce frustration – and save time.  I thought  I  would share it  with you today for our Wednesday’s WOW!

Wednesday’s WOW! #105 – Lining up the Sunflower Stamp with the dies and also how to get that stamp back in the stamp case. 

1. Getting the stamp back in to the case.

Firstly we will start with the stamp set. I keep the rubber surround for the stamp set in the case and put the stamps back in to the rubber when I have finished stamping.  It keeps them secure in the case AND you can quickly see if you are missing a stamp.  Which is really good.

With the large sunflower stamp I found it hard to find the position to put it back in.  You had to keep turning it until you thought it lined up.  It took some time.

So, once I had it in the case I placed a mark with a Black permanent marker on the rubber surround and on the edge of the sunflower stamp. Then it can easily slip in place in to the right position. 

I made the mark on the front of the stamp on to the side and then over the edge on to the back of the stamp.  So you can see it when you are stamping. 

2. The next challenge was to line the die up with the stamp.

You now have the mark on the stamp so you can now position the die and make a mark on the die. 

To do this you need to position the stamp face down as that is how will stamp out.  NOTE: I have  placed the sticker  on the back of the stamp. I know some people don’t add the sticker. I think for this type of detailed stamp it would be helpful to.

Then you can  line up the die with the image.  On this image  below I see the mark is fading.  It is up the top.  I will need to add another mark.  I didn’t use permanent marker on this one I think.

3. Now lining up the die with the stamped image to diecut it.

Before you stamp the image on white card make a pencil mark on the card.  Then ink up the stamp and stamp it on to the card with the mark on the stamp lining up near the mark on the card.

Then you can easily position the die on to the card as you line up the marks.  Then diecut that lovely sunflower out.

I hope these tips are clear for you.  I am sure they will save you a lot of time.  It certainly has saved my sanity.

Be sure to the PIN the images to save them for future reference.

BLOSSOMS IN BLOOM FLOWER WREATH!

I have a different card for you today using the Blossoms In Bloom Bundle. 

I created a flower wreath using the small flower dies in the Many Layered Blossoms Dies.  

Like the large blossom dies in the set the smaller ones have the thin outline and then the wider “edge”.  If you can describe it like that.

The pinks were Blushing Bride for the inner flower and Flirty Flamingo for the inside flower. The purple flower was Gorgeous Grape for the outside and Highland Heather for the inside flower. The leaves were Pear Pizzazz.

The wreath was created by stamping the dotty circle from the Swirly Frames stamp set.  It was stamped in Soft Suede.

The Blushing Bride card mat was embossed with the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.

The sentiment is from the Seaside Notions stamp set.  

You can see the Blossoms in Bloom in my store now -> HERE.  In Australia?  If you love it and just have to get them then you can order at that link. 

Or drop me an comment and I will get back to you to arrange the order for you.

Thanks for your order.  I do appreciate it. I will drop a little card and a little something in the mail for you as I do appreciate it.

Thanks for visiting me today. I hope it inspires you to create something different with these dies.

Have a great day,

Jenny
