Flowers For Every Season Suite By Stampin' Up!


Today I thought I would share some fo the cards I have been making lately.  It's been a long time since I sat down & created at my own pace.  During COVID isolation I've had the time to sit & craft which has been a nice change from the fast pace of normal life here. 


Page 10 of the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue 2020-2021 shows 4 cards using the Jar of Flowers stamp set (#154064) which comes as a bundle with a matching jar punch.  I thought I would try to recreate them in my own way.  




Here's what I came up with. I've used different sentiments & some slight changes here & there.  I have tried to stay pretty close to the original to showcase the new In Colours, from left to right - Just Jade, Bumblebee, Magenta Madness & Misty Moonlight.  I didn't make one using Cinnamon Cider, but feel I should now! 




Here they are separately.  

Misty Moonlight Roses


                                                                   Just Jade Wild Flowers 


                                                                  Magenta Madness Tulips 


                                                                Bumblebee Sunflowers 

I have used the Stampin' Blends to colour in the flowers.  I was delighted to see 4 of the new In colours come in this range.  I've used daffodil delight for the yellow shades as Bumblebee is not available in the blends.  The sentiments from the Well Said stamp set (#148796) are heat embossed in white.  Backgrounds are using the very pretty Flowers For Every Season Designer Series Paper (#152486)which comes in the 6"x6' size. For the Magenta card background I used one of the Flowers for Every Season Memories & More cards (#153101).  I have created quite a few cards with these so stay tuned for my next blog post where I will share those  

I really enjoyed creating these cards & hope to make many more with this really lovely stamp set. 

Happy Crafting, 
Tricia

2019 Holiday Catalogue


It's that time of the year again.  I like make my own Christmas cards & decorations & now is the time I sit down to craft all these items. I was just flicking through the 2019 Holiday catalogue working out what I wanted to order & realised I hadn't shown it on here yet!

Here are a few of my favourite suites in this catalogue.

Wrapped in Plaid Suite on page 12. 
This suite has a cute tree punch & matching stamp set. There is also a versatile plaid 6x6 DSP pack with gold foil though each sheet.  The jingle bells are cute as is the Shaded Spruce striped ribbon.

Let It Snow Suite on page 18
The Let It Snow Suite features the cutest snowmen in both a bright fun DSP & the stamps & punch bundle.  The Let It Snow Embellishment Kit is the perfect addition with felt accessories & enamel elements to build your snowmen.  I really love the colours in this suite!

Brightly Gleaming Suite on page 30
This suite has a Gleaming Ornament Punch pack (2) & coordinating stamp set.  The DSP is sumptuous & has copper foil on every sheet.  The Classic Weave ribbon & Star elements are also a must. 


Of course there are many more items in the catalogue waiting for you to explore & create with. 
Here is a link to the catalogue to download, just click the picture.

    New Occasions Catalogue & Sale-A-Bration Rewards

    And a New Year has begun!  I hope 2019 is off to a good start for you all.  Every January Stampin’ Up has 2 new catalogs for us – our Occasions catalogue and the packed full of freebies Sale-a-Bration catalogue, which is our annual gift-with-purchase promotion.

                   

     Feel free to save these to your desktop/iPad to view later. Click on each catalogue to view or download as a PDF here: Occasions PDF    &    Sale-a-bration PDF 

    This new Occasions catalogue runs from January 3rd – March 31st.  There are SO many pretty, new things in the Occasions Catalog but here is a sampling of my favourites that I think are must have additions to your crafting collection!
    Stitched Rectangle Framelits & Butterfly Beauty Thinlit dies


    The Well Said Bundle which includes 24 small word dies & a double case of greeting stamps.  

    The best thing about this catalogue is everything you spend can add up to free items from the Sale-a-bration catalogue. 




    Here are the level 1 options - available with a $90 or above order.  Remember each $90 increment = 1 item. 



    Level 2 rewards are a bit more special & equal $180 order for above. 

    Lasting Lily and is a 16 piece, large photopolymer set & the Tea Time framelits coordinate with a stamp set in the Occasions catalog called Tea Together.



    *****  SALE-A- BRATION SIGN UP OFFER  *****
