Changing Leaves with Beautiful Autumn

Hello and welcome to Part 2 of my Stampin’ Up! Gilded Autumn Suite Showcase. If you missed Part 1 you can find it here. This week I’m paring it back a bit with this gorgeous, clean and simple card that I’ve called Changing Leaves with Beautiful Autumn…

Changing Leaves with Stampin' Up! Beautiful Autumn Bundle - card by Helen Chapman Handmade Crafts

Let’s Make It…

Create a (standard A6) card base from Very Vanilla Thick cardstock. Follow this with a layer of Early Espresso cardstock measuring 10 x 14.4 cm. Create your main card front with a 9.5 x 13.9 cm layer of Very Vanilla cardstock.

Punch out the leaves from Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler, Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie and Crushed Curry cardstock. Adhere these to the right hand edge of the card front.

Stamp the ‘hey there’ sentiment in Early Espresso ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock. Cut out the sentiment using the banner die from the Tasteful Labels Dies. Cut another banner from Copper Brushed Metallic cardstock and adhere the banners together with an offset.

Adhere the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

What do you think to my Changing Leaves with Beautiful Autumn Card?

I hope you like my Changing Leaves with Beautiful Autumn Card. I love this combination of earthy colours with the hint of metallic cardstock. I think Very Vanilla works really well with these colours and is definitely my go-to card base / card front when using these tones.

In Good Taste Treat Cup

Hello and welcome! Today I’d like to share with you my Stampin’ Up! In Good Taste Treat Cup! These Mini Coffee Cups are part of the Heartwarming Hugs Suite but it feels a little soon for Christmas themed projects so I’ve used them with the In Good Taste Suite to create a gift holder that can be used all year round. The Stamp Set and Dies form the Warm Hugs Bundle which is also part of the Suite.

Let’s Make It…

Use the Warm Wraps Dies (part of the Warm Hugs Bundle) to cut out the two sections of the wrap from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper (DSP). Apply Tear & Tape to the tabs and adhere to form one piece. Insert the cup into the wrap and adhere if required.

Wrap a length of Petal Pink Organdy Striped Ribbon around the cup and tie in a bow at the top. Tie a length of Night of Navy Ribbon (for the Playing With Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack) to the bow and allow the tails to trail down the cup.

Stamp the ‘for you’ sentiment onto Petal Pink cardstock in Night of Navy ink and cut out using the coordinating ‘ring’ die. Use the larger circle die to cut out a piece of the DSP.

Adhere to of the small leaves from the In Good Taste Elements to the back of the ring of Petal Pink cardstock. Adhere to the DSP circle using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. Adhere one of the large leaves to the back of the DSP circle. Finish with one of the wooden hexagons and adhere to the cup using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

What do you think to my In Good Taste Treat Cup?

I hope you like my Stampin’ Up! In Good Taste Treat Cup. These cups are a really nice size for a small gift – something coffee related would be perfect (or maybe hot chocolate later in the year)!

Coastal Cabana Monochrome Card

Hello and welcome to a brand new month of Colour Challenges! First up we have my Coastal Cabana Monochrome Card. I immediately thought of the Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home Stamp Set for this card and here is what I created…

Stampin' Up! Sailing Home Coastal Cabana Monochrome Card by Helen Chapman Handmade Crafts

Let’s make it…

The (standard A6) card base is created from Coastal Cabana cardstock. This is followed by a layer of Whisper White cardstock measuring 10 x 14.4 cm, which forms the main card front.

Onto the card front I stamped the ‘You Are My True North’ sentiment multiple times – using first, second and third generation stamping – in Coastal Cabana ink. In the gaps between the sentiments I stamped the birds image and the compass image, also in Coastal Cabana ink.

I used the coordinating Smooth Sailing dies to cut out the ships wheel from Coastal Cabana cardstock. This was adhered to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Into the centre I placed one of the Playing With Patterns Resin Dots to provided the finishing touch.

What do you think to my Coastal Cabana Monochrome Card?

I hope you like my Coastal Cabana Monochrome Card! I think this is probably the simplest card I have created using the Sailing Home Stamp Set and Smooth Sailing Dies! My original idea was more complex but I stopped at this stage because I really liked the simplicity of it.

New Catalogue Cards

New Catalogue Cards

As you may know, the Stampin’ Up! August – December Mini Catalogue is going live later this week (4th August)! It’s super exciting! I always pop a little card in with the catalogues I send out to existing customers and today I’d like to share with you the cards they received. I like to include some of the products from the new catalogue in these New Catalogue Cards and these ones use the upcoming Press On Stamp Set…

New catalogue cards by Helen Chapman Handmade Crafts using the Stampin' Up! Press On Stamp Set

Let’s make it…

I decided to create cards that would fit in the Stampin’ Up! 3×3″ Envelopes. These are a great option when you are making a batch of cards.

The card base is created from Calypso Coral cardstock measuring 6 x 3″, scored at 3″ along the 6″ edge. This is followed by a layer of Coastal Cabana cardstock measuring 7.3 x 7.3 cm. I’ve been using this colour combination a lot recently, inspired by the Playing With Patterns Suite Colours!

The cup is stamped onto Whisper White cardstock and onto Playing With Patterns Designer Series Paper (DSP). The whole Whisper White cup is fussy-cut and the ‘wrap’ is fussy-cut from the DSP version. The wrap is adhered to the cup using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The sentiment is stamped in Coastal Cabana ink onto a 3/4″ strip of Whisper White cardstock. This is shaped using the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch. Once the sentiment is adhered to the card, the cup is adhered using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

What do you think to my New Catalogue Cards?

I hope you like my New Catalogue Cards. Will the Press On Stamp Set be on your wish list? Have you been inspired to try this colour combination or to create some 3×3″ cards? The item number for the Press On Stamp Set will be 153392
