Mini Catalogue 2020 Happy Mail

When there is a new Stampin’ Up! Catalogue, I send out ‘Happy Mail’. Here is part of my Mini Catalogue 2020 Happy Mail package.

There were a few excited recipients, plus a few not quite so excited husbands!

Beautiful Autumn Bundle. Project designed by Karen at HIPPOFROG Designs

I’ve once again used the fabulous new Beautiful Autumn Bundle. The inspiration for this project is Page 73 of the new Mini Catalogue. This Beautiful Autumn Stamp Set and Autumn Punch Pack Bundle work beautifully together.

As they are part of the Gilded Autumn Suite, there are other products that also co-ordinate. Don’t forget that Suites and Bundles are discounted so offer even greater value.

My colour combination is Mint Macaron, Crumb Cake and Pumpkin Pie, onto Very Vanilla Notecards. I love using Notecards when I’m making batches, they are so quick and easy to use.

The three punches in the Punch Pack offer so many possibilities. You can stamp the outline, stamp the inside too and then punch, or just punch the shape.

For this project, the outline is stamped tone-on-tone and then punched out. The sentiment from the Stamp Set is layered on top of the co-ordinating Ribbon Combo Pack from the Gilded Autumn Suite.

BYO Stamps – Seeing Double with Waterfront

The new Catalogue has arrived, but today I’m sharing a project from a BYO Stamps Class that happened last month.

This uses a Stamp Set that has carried over to the new Catalogue and some products from the new Ornate Garden Suite. It’s definitely a case of seeing double on this project, with multiples of items being used.

Seeing Double with Waterfront. Project designed by Karen at HIPPOFROG Designs

The project is inspired by a picture from the previous Annual Catalogue.

Using the ‘splatter’ design from the Waterfront Stamp Set, it is stamped multiple times tone-on-tone onto the Calypso Coral background.

One of the water images is then used to create a pattern on the Whisper White piece, before it has the ends cut into a banner shape.

Old Olive is used for the sentiment, quite appropriate for these unusual times. It is also cut to create a banner shape at the end.

Calypso Coral Ribbon from the new Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack is looped between the banners. Then a length of the Whisper White Seam Binding Ribbon creates a bow around both of the banners.

Finally, the banners are slightly offset at an angle using Dimensionals to finish the project.

Join us for a future BYO Stamps Class. Find out more at my Class Timetable.

Mystery Pack – Raining Hearts & Dogs

This week’s Mystery Pack project included shapes from the Dog Builder Punch. You could say it was raining hearts and dogs!

The recipients were tasked with making a card using any of the items from the pack, along with scissors and adhesive, plus a sentiment and an ink pad.

Raining Hearts & Dogs. Project designed by Karen at HIPPOFROG Designs

Here is my project, using some of the items from the kit. I didn’t use all of the dogs as I preferred the Soft Suede one for my card. It’s a great card for a dog lover.

To see how I put this card together in more detail, take a look at my video below.

I created a Mondrian-type design with my various card pieces and added the hearts. The mix of the various yellows works really well with the Very Vanilla.

A pretty ribbon swish, which I show in more detail in the video is placed behind the circle layers.

Finally, a bling collar just adds a pretty finishing touch.

Frosted Floral DSP Happy Mail

If you are on my Catalogue Mailing List, you will have received some Frosted Floral DSP Happy Mail, along with the new Autumn/Winter Catalogue.

The notecards are really simple and quick to make as the DSP does all the work.

Simply cut the DSP to fit the front of the notecard. You’ll be left with a narrow piece which you can then turn over and stick behind the sentiment to show off both sides of the DSP.

Best Wishes from Petal Palette in either co-ordinating Night of Navy or Blackberry Bliss is the sentiment. These are cut out using the Tailored Tag Punch.

Here are four pieces from the 12 sheets in the pack.

As this is a Speciality DSP, it has a beautiful shimmery finish. I’m not sure if you can see it in the pictures, it’s definitely a ‘need to see it’ product.

A batch of these with a range of sentiments would make a lovely gift.

Here they all are.
