Create a personalised Mermaid card with the Magical Mermaid and Labeler Alphabet stamp sets from Stampin' Up!

A handmade Mermaid card with the words 'Dream Big' made with the Magical Mermaid stamp set from Stampin' Up!

Love Mermaids? 
I think I mentioned before that when I was a child I used to pretend to be a Mermaid whenever I went swimming. Looking back, I can remember how vivid my imagination was - I truly felt like a Mermaid and I would spend hours swimming along the bottom of the pool by waving my shimmery, beautiful tail. I didn't want to get out the pool and would have happily stayed a Mermaid forever... 

Fast forward thirty years and I still love Mermaids just as much. I have to make do with creating them from paper using the Magical Mermaid stamp set from Stampin' Up! but they appeal to me just as they did then. 


A handmade Mermaid card with the words 'Dream Big' made with the Magical Mermaid stamp set and Pineapple Punch ink from Stampin' Up!


I have used this stamp set a lot (also available in Wood Mount) - it is so much fun changing the colour of her tail and the background.

Make today's project 
This is an easy project with a little bit of detail - some colouring and fussy-cutting. I decided the sentiment would be 'Dream Big' but you can create any sentiment you like using the Labeler Alphabet stamp set. This is another stamp set that I use time and time again and is well worth the money. Follow the steps below to create this project.




Follow the easy steps below:

1. Stamp the seaweed stamp from Magical Mermaid in Lemon Lime Twist onto some Very Vanilla Cardstock
2. Mount on to some Pineapple Punch Cardstock. Mount again on to your Very Vanilla Cardstock base.
3. Stamp your Mermaid in Black Memento Ink and leave to dry.
4. Using a Blender Pen and the following ink pads colour your Mermaid in: Tranquil Tide, Lovely Lipstick, Lemon Lime Twist, and Pineapple Punch - or whatever colours you fancy. 
5. Fussy cut your Mermaid.
6. Stamp your sentiment using Labeler Alphabet and fussy cut out. 
7. Add some Artisan Pearls 
8. Assemble your card - I used Snail and Dimensionals.
You can create this same card with alternative colours for a different look. You can make the background as simple or as complicated as you like depending on your mood or your level of skill.

Create a beautiful dragonfly card with the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set

This is a handmade dragonfly card created by Lauren Huntley, Stampin' Up! Independent Demonstrator for the UK, using the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set by Stampin' Up!

... and celebrate the arrival of autumn.
Here in England the summer has come to a close and autumn is pretty much here. To be totally honest I have mixed feelings about this. I love the autumn - the beautiful trees and their pretty leaves, the chilly nights, wrapping up in coats and boots, and the opportunity to delve into the Autumn Winter Catalogue and make pretty autumn cards. But as someone who has a rheumatic condition and depends on the sun for her vitamin D, the winter means feeling extremely unwell, succumbing to low mood, and being in a lot of pain.

The summer was fantastic. Unusually, it lasted all the way from late April - heavy snow having fallen only 6 weeks previously - all the way through to September. All highly unusual for England, and making it even harder to say goodbye to the summer.

Here are some highlights!


Family day out at Butser Ancient Farm, Petersfield for the Beltain Celebrations in May
With my cousin and his lovely wife (sat next to Mr Hippy) for Beltane (May Day) celebrations. My first outing of the year. It was surprisingly warm that evening and we didn't get too cold. It was lovely to catch up with friends and family. We saw some excellent drummers and welcomed the start of the summer - always a big celebration.


Little Hippy stroking one of the baby goats at Baylham Rare Breeds Farm in Suffolk
Little Hippy visiting us for a week in the summer holidays.

It's always so nice to spend some decent time with her as she lives so far away. She is nearly 11 now and understands that having M.E. makes me really tired and not up to much. She doesn't have Netflix at home so she catches up with her favourite shows whilst I have a nap, and then on a day when I am up to it we venture out with Mr Hippy and do something special.

We paid a visit to a nearby farm. They had all sorts of animals but her favourite (and mine!) were the goats. There were lots of them and because they were so tiny they kept coming out of their enclosures to play and check out the visitors. Here is Little Hippy with her favourite, she fell in love with him (her?) and called him 'Bobby'. She is still talking about 'Bobby' all these months later!

She might be the same height as me now and grown up for her age, but she doesn't tire of hanging out with her old mum which is lovely.

She also loves Stampin' Up! and loves to have a craft session.


Learn more about today's project 
I am making it my focus to celebrate the autumn, something I have grown to be afraid of (as it leads into winter), instead of looking back and mourning the summer.

Today's project has a gorgeous autumn feel to it; some warm tones of red (Poppy Parade) and orange (Mango Melody), plus the Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder adding some extra depth and dimension.

This is a handmade, Poppy Parade coloured dragonfly card created by Lauren Huntley, Stampin' Up! Independent Demonstrator for the UK, using the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set by Stampin' Up!


It's a fairly simple card to create, just assemble it as per the photograph.

The NEW Autumn Winter Catalogue is now here!

This picture shows the front cover of the Stampin' Up! UK Autumn Winter Catalogue which runs from the 5th September 2018 until the 2nd January 2018.

Happy September everyone! 

September = the new Autumn Winter Catalogue!

It is finally here - probably my favourite catalogue of the whole year. It is packed full of autumn and winter seasonal cheer, and is particularly fabulous if you enjoy nature projects or making your own Christmas cards and tags.

Unfortunately there was a delay in the shipping of catalogues to me, but if you have requested a catalogue or you have spent £20+ in the last 6 months a copy of the catalogue will soon be with you. 

View the PDF version HERE.




Enjoy!

Take a look at the Beautiful You stamp set by Stampin' Up!

This picture shows a Mint Macaron and Tranquil Tide handmade card created using the Beautiful You stamp set by Stampin' Up! made by Crafty Hippy UK Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

And learn how I create my cards... 
Many people have a vision in mind when they are creating their cards and scrapbook pages. Many describe this as a picture in their heads that they do their best to recreate, or get as near to as possible with the craft stash that they have available.

I'm a bit different in that usually I don't have a clue what I'm going to make, and usually start off with a product (or products) that I really want to use, and then go from there.

I haven't used the Beautiful You stamp set (also available in Wood Mount) in quite a while, and it caught my eye on the shelf. I go through phases with my projects, most recently a nautical theme, so I thought it was time I made something a bit different. I decided that Beautiful You was the stamp set I'd use.


This pictures shows the images which comprise the Beautiful You stamp set by Stampin' Up!


This picture shows a Mint Macaron and Tranquil Tide handmade card created using the Beautiful You stamp set by Stampin' Up!Choosing colours...
I wasn't sure what colour scheme to use at first, I just knew that I wanted to use this stamp set and perhaps some Designer Series Paper.

I decided that the best way to decide on colours would be to choose the paper first, going with something that caught my eye and I fancied working with, and then build up the card from there.

I chose some green leaf paper from the Natures Poem DSP.

In the end I opted for a colour scheme of Mint Macaron, Tranquil Tide, and Whisper White. You can view all the products I used for this project below.

I love how a project is 'born' with me having no clue what it will look like at the start of the process. Sometimes I am really pleased with the result, other times not so, but I always come away with ideas.





This stamp set is gorgeous; it has an artistic, watercolour feel to it, and the sentiments co-ordinate with the stamps perfectly. The colours I have used are cool in tone but work well together.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today, more Stampin' Up! cardmaking ideas coming soon,

The Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder
Regular visitors to this blog will know that my all-time favourite Stampin' Up! item is the Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. 

Even though this has been around for a little while now, I never get bored of playing with it!

10 WOODLAND EMBOSSING FOLDER PROJECTS

It features beautiful Silver Birch trees, and is perfect for natural or wood-themed projects, and is perfect for Christmas cards and scrapbook layouts.

You can do an awful lot with it. You can either use it to emboss a background piece, or go one further and ink the raised section up, as I have done so today.


This picture shows a handmade card created with the Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and Melon Mambo ink both by Stampin' Up!
Today's project
This is a quick and easy card, which is a lot of fun to make. I chose three colours which I thought would go well together:

Melon Mambo
Shaded Spruce
Blueberry Bushel

I embossed the Whisper White Cardstock with the Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, and then brayered over the top with the Melon Mambo ink.
The full list of products you need to make this card is at the bottom of this article.

Of course you could recreate this card in any combination of colours. As it's such an easy card simply follow the picture of the card as instruction on how to make it.



A nice easy card for today. Sometimes simple is the best!

Back soon with another project,

Create a Magical Mermaid card using Aqua Painters and Bermuda Bay ink - CASE Card by Carolyn Bennie

This image shows a handmade card with a mermaid on the front, made with the Magical Mermaid stamp set by Stampin' Up! UK

Create a beautiful Mermaid card using Watercolour Paper and Aqua Painters 
I haven't been able to stop playing with the Magical Mermaid Stamp Set. It certainly is magical - and there are so many creative things you can do with it. You can do all sorts of wonderful things with her tail, her hair, and her positioning. 

Of course the perfect accompaniments to this set are our Watercolour Paper and Aqua Painters, which I have used to colour the background in Bermuda Bay ink. 

This image shows a handmade card with a mermaid on the front made with the Magical Mermaid stamp set by Stampin' Up! UK, created by Demonstrator Lauren Huntley, Crafty Hippy

Thanks goes to Carolyn Bennie, one of our Australian Demonstrators, for this project. It was so beautiful I just HAD to make it. I don't think my watercolouring is as perfect as hers, but then the beauty of watercolouring is that you never get the same effect twice!

Click on any of the items below to view them in the Stampin' Up! Store. To create this project you will need: 


Next time I am going to create the same card but completely change the colours and see how different it looks. Thank you so much for the inspiration Carolyn!

If you angle the Mermaid with her head down she looks like she is diving - perhaps she is looking for oysters in the seaweed... There are so many different ideas you can use this set for.

I would love to see your creations if you have used this set! Please email pictures to the email address at the top of this page.

Create a beautiful 'Thank You' card using Blueberry Bushel Cardstock with the Lovely Floral Embossing Folder from Stampin' Up!

This picture shows a handmade 'Thank You' card made using the Blueberry Bushel Cardstock and the Lovely Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder from Stampin' Up!

Create today's project - it's easier than it looks! 
I love detailed cards. There's something really satisfying about getting the last bits of detail 'just right' (in this case the sequins) - and then standing back to admire your handiwork.

Today's card is so simple to make. It's just lots of different elements put together to create a co-ordinated, detailed look.

I decided the basis for my card would be some Blueberry Bushel Cardstock and the Lovely Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

This embossing folder is from the beautiful Share What You Love Suite and is ideal for all those whimsical, gentle, floral projects..

This picture shows The Lovely Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder from Stampin' Up!

Once I had decided on the two elements making up the main part of my card, I had to decide what to use next. I opted to fussy cut some flowers from the Stampin' Up! Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.
This picture shows a handmade 'Thank You' card made using the Blueberry Bushel Cardstock and the Lovely Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder from Stampin' Up!


Need some Stampin' Supplies?
If you'd like to recreate my project exactly you'll need the following supplies:





Make simple changes to your project for a different look
Of course you could stamp and colour the flowers instead of fussy cutting from paper. You could use buttons instead of sequins, and you could use Black Cardstock for the card base instead of white. So many opportunities to create a totally different card using the same layout.

Create interesting backgrounds using the Under the Sea Framelits Dies from Stampin' Up!

This photograph shows a hand made card created using the Under the Sea Framelits Dies and Tranquil Tide ink and cardstock by Stampin' Up!

Do you ever get stuck for an interesting background? 
Sometimes it's good to think outside the box a little. When I didn't know what sort of card I wanted to make, I instead focused on what I wanted to use. And today it was the Under the Sea Framelits Dies by Stampin' Up! 

Then it was a matter of choosing what colours I wanted to work with. I wanted to create an unusual sea-themed, nautical card using some interesting colours so I opted for Tranquil Tide and Highland Heather

This photograph shows a hand made, purple and green card created using the Under the Sea Framelits Dies and Tranquil Tide ink and cardstock by Stampin' Up!

I also used the Waterfront Stamp Set for the sentiment and the little beach hut. The Wood Textures Designer Series Paper gives you the feel of an old wooden ship hatch.

Get your hands on the Sea of Textures stamp set by Stampin' Up! and keep yourself octopied (occupied)!

The new Sea of Textures stamp set is shaping up to be one of my favourite stamp sets from the new Annual Catalogue. It is a fun and fresh stamp set perfect for all sorts of papercraft projects. 

I decided that today's card was going to be a mixture of Basic Black, Coastal Cabana, and Lemon Lime Twistand I think the result is gorgeous. 

I've loved teaming the Sea of Textures set with the Labeler Alphabet stamp set for the sentiment as I love creating my own sentiments. Here is my Bermuda Bay Octopus Card from earlier on in the week:

I really hope you have enjoyed today's design, please come back soon,

Create a card for a friend using the Waterfront stamp set by Stampin' Up!

This picture shows a hand stamped card, showing trees and a sentiment made with the Waterfront stamp set by Stampin' Up!

Try the Waterfront stamp set
The Waterfront stamp set is incredibly versatile. Create a plethora of scenery cards. The watercolour style of the stamps means it's impossible to get it wrong, and you'll produce great results every time. You can create a range of stunning scenes from mountains to deserts to beaches.


You could try stamping onto some Watercolor Paper and using a brush or Aqua Painter to draw the colour out from the edges of the stamped areas.

This image shows all the stamped images of the stamps that comprise the Waterfront stamp set by Stampin' Up!

Today's project 
I didn't have a plan in mind for today's card. I knew I wanted to make a card for a friend, but that was it. I constructed it by gathering the different elements and then adding the stamping.

I used some Tranquil Textures DSP for the background and embossed this using the Seaside Textured Impressions Embossing Folder in the Big Shot. You can find a full list of supplies below.

This picture shows a hand stamped card, showing trees and a sentiment made with the Waterfront stamp set and Rich Razzleberry Velvet Ribbon by Stampin' Up!

See the last card in the 2018-2020 In Color cat card set - Grapefruit Grove

This image shows a handmade card with a cat on the front made with the Cat Punch and Grapefruit Grove Classic Stampin' Pad by Stampin' Up!

Take a closer look at Grapefruit Grove... 
Take a look at the new Grapefruit Grove  colour from Stampin' Up! - it's a gorgeous colour, somewhere between peach and orange. You can buy the Grapefruit Grove Classic Stampin' Pad individually, (click on the link above) or as part of the In Color 2018-2020 Classic Stampin' Pads collection.

This image shows a photograph of the Grapefruit Grove Classic Stampin' Pad ink pad by Stampin' Up!


This image shows the 2018-2020 In Color Assortment Classic Stampin' Pads from Stampin' Up!I can see myself using this new colour quite a bit, even though I'm not much of a pastels girl. It is not too dissimilar to Calypso Coral, but lighter and slightly more orange. The new In Colors are gorgeously vibrant and fill the gaps that we had in our colour palette. They are called Lovely LipstickGrapefruit GrovePineapple PunchCall Me Clover, and Blueberry Bushel. I am having so much fun showing you all these lovely new colours; I think the colours in the 2018 Catalogue make up our best set of colour families yet!

This image shows the new In Color 2018-2020 Classic Stampin' Pad Collection by Stampin' Up! and you can see how neatly they stack. How to make today's project
You may have seen today's project in the set of cards I showed a few weeks ago. They're simple to make, just follow the instructions below:
1. Using the Love What You Do set stamp the watercolour wash, and then flowers over the top in the same colour. Link for Grapefruit Grove is at the top of the page.
2. Use the Labeler Alphabet stamp set to create your sentiment. You could use a different colour to the main wash for added interest.
3. Use the Cat Punch and some Basic Black Cardstock to create your cat. Of course you can change the colour of the cat, or any other element of this project, if you wish.
4. Mount your card front on to Basic Black Cardstock. Add some embellishment if you wish.


This image shows a selection of 5 'Hello' cards made with the 2018-2020 In Colors and Cat Punch from Stampin' Up!

Aren't they great? Isn't Grapefruit Grove a gorgeous new addition? Add some embellishmentextra stamping or embossing for more depth to your project.
