Whale of a Time with the cutest backdrop

Whale of a Time Suite

I love how these designer papers add such a wow to a card, with very little extras needed. This gorgeous piece with the sea horses makes a super cute backdrop for this whale card.

Adding some seaweed die cut from the Smooth Sailing dies, which coordinate beautifully with this suite. The cardstock is Blackberry Bliss, Granny Apple Green & Shaded Spruce.

My card base is Pretty Peacock, as is the 2¼” circle punch, embossed with the Seabed 3D embossing folder and popped up on dimensionals.

The whale is actually punched from another piece of the designer paper using the Whale Builder Punch, also adhered with dimensionals. I just love that these papers have images that can be cut with the coordinating punch!

The blue adhesive backed gems are added randomly for a little sparkle!

CCS Garden Green – Birthday Wreath with a pop of colour

Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining the Colour Creations Showcase to bring you creative inspiration to showcase our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours.

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Week 17 – Garden Green

Yes, I know, another wreath card… but you know what, I just love them and they are so easy and effective. The only stamping is the sentiment.

The flowers are die cut in Magenta Madness and Highland Heather and each has a small rhinestone in the centre. The Magenta Bow just adds that extra touch for a wreath. I love how this wreath sits on the Brick & Mortar embossed background, as though it’s hanging on a wall.

The wreath has 3 layers; bottom layer is Soft Sea Foam, the middle is the same DSP as the background and the top layer is Garden Green. The middle layer was cut from the centre of the background layer so not the waste this gorgeous paper and the hole is covered up with the White Bricks layer anyway! I glued the bottom layer direct to the white bricks. The top two layers are glue together but then these are popped up on mini dimensionals to give it some height.

2020 August-December Mini Catalogue

Tonight I have a fun fancy fold card. It is a landscape bridge fold design but in the slimline style, which is all the rage right now. I love this Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper. You may remember it from last year, as it was part of the Brightly Gleaming Suite and it was super popular so it stayed, yay!!!

The only stamping is the two holly leaves which were fussy cut and coloured with the Wink of Stella to pick up a little of the wet Mossy Meadow ink.

The letters are die cut in Pretty Peacock card and added to the sheet of acetate which covers the front of the card with Stampin’ Seal. I then added Fine Tip Glue to the holly berries and each of the letters for that lustrous shine! A couple of Star Designer Elements are added either side of the Merry.

This card folds flat to fit into a standard DL Business Size envelope!

Measurements:
Card Base: 8¼” x 5½” score short edge at 1”, 1¾”, 3¾”, 4½”
DSP: 8¼” x ⅞” (2) and 8¼” x 1⅞”
Window Sheet: 8¼” x 3¾”

Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining the Colour Creations Showcase to bring you creative inspiration to showcase our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours.

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Week 16 – Flirty Flamingo

This is such a pretty colour combination for tonight’s card using the Forever Fern Bundle in a wreath style card.

The leaf images are stamped 6 times in each colour on whisper white card and die cut. I arranged them in a wreath and popped them up on dimenionals for some added height. The sentiment is stamped and die cut and has a double layer of dimensionals under it, so it sits up higher than the wreath.

The white layer the wreath sits on, is embossed with the Dainty Diamonds 3D embossing folder for some added interest.

On the inside, I placed two extra stamped/die cut leaf images in each colour and a small strip of DSP that was left over from another project.

Measurements:

Whisper White card base: 12.5cm x 25cm, folded in half
Flirty Flamingo: 10.5cm x 10.5cm
Gorgeous Grape: 9.4cm x 9.4cm
Whisper White: 9cm x 9cm

Cherish the Season SITR

Christmas is definitely going to be a different Christmas this year. With the pandemic causing chaos, we are still not out of Stage 4 isolation here in Melbourne. Luckily the weather was rather cold, windy and raining for much of the weekend, so it kept us indoors. Thankfully I have lots of hobbies to keep me occupied 😉

This card uses the Stamparatus and the Cherish the Season stamp set in this lovely combination of colour.

I set up the largest of the bells in the Stamparatus, stamped it once in Gray Granite, before rotating the 4″ x 4″ card 90 degrees and stamping it again, continuing this process of stamping in the round (SITR). Then I added the smaller bell and repeated the process.

Once the stamping was complete, I used the Wink of Stella to colour all the bells (unfortunately the photos don’t show the amazing glimmer it gives). Then I added some colour with Gray Granite and Merry Merlot, picking up some colour from the inkpad using the Wink of Stella.

The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink, white emboss powder added and then heat set. It was cut out using the Rectangle Stitched dies. The tiny bell is die cut in Silver Foil and added with a dimensionals and a little white twine bow added.

The mat layer of Merry Merlot card was embossed with the Scripty 3D embossing folder before being glued to the card base and the centre layer glued on top.

Monthly Creative Showcase: Masculine Theme

Tonight’s card is a fancy fold Cube Card that is so popular right now. You can find instructions all over the internet to create these.

Masculine Cube Card using Stampin Ups World of Good Suite by Kate Morgan Australia 2020

I have kept mine fairly simple and straight forward with the decorating. The World of Good Specialty DSP has the gorgeous Gold Foil through it, so I didn’t want to go covering it up with loads of embellishments.

Double Fan Fold card

Week 15 – Early Espresso

Do you immediately think masculine when you see the colour, Early Espresso?! I usually do, but when I looked at the patterned papers and saw that Early Espresso is in the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper and it being the start of Spring, I had to go with flowers for tonight’s card!

Colour Combination - BB OO EE GF

This Double Fan Fold card was inspired by Sam Calcott, UK. I did change up my measurements slightly, but the design is practically the same. I do love a fancy fold for its wow factor and I think this really makes a statement.

The card base is Early Espresso as is the centre background layer, embossed with the Greenery TIEF. There is also a Gold Foil layer behind it.

Double Fan Fold card using Stampin Ups Ornate Garden & Daisy Lane by Kate Morgan Australia 2020

I love the three medium daisies down the front of the card and each one is made up of 3 layers; Early Espresso, stamped Bumblebee and plain Bumblebee with a Gold Foil accent in the centre from the Poppy Moments dies. The leaves are also from this die set.

The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink, Gold Emboss Powder added and heat set. The Classic Label Punch was used to cut it out and then it is popped up on black dimensionals. 

You may me wondering where you write a message to send this to someone? I cut a piece of white card to the same size as the Gold Foil layer on the front, then glued it to the back of the card.  This card also folds flat to fit into an envelope.

   

Here it is open flat so you can see all the angles.

Prized Peony for a 50th Wedding Anniversary

Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining the Colour Creations Showcase to bring you creative inspiration and to feature our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours.

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Week 14 – Daffodil Delight

This week I have a card for a very special 50th Wedding Anniversary using the Prized Peony bundle.

Here’s how I inked the Peonies: die cut each of the 4 pieces that make up each Peony, two times in Daffodil Delight card. Then I sponged the edges with Daffodil Delight ink (Step 1). Take the Decorative Mask (dot design), lay it over the petals and sponge on some Mango Melody ink (Step 2). The final ink colour is Poppy Parade (Step 3).

Tip: to get the nice sponged colour on the inside petal of each piece, place a piece of scrap card or dsp inside before sponging.

Glue the petals together starting with the smallest and inserting it into the next size petal. Continue until you have them all glued together. The stamen is Daffodil Delight card sponged with Mango Melody ink. The leaves are simply stamped and die cut in Pear Pizzazz. The sentiment is stamped in Mango Melody on Daffodil Delight card and added with a small strip of Adhesive Foam Sheet or you could use dimensionals.

Because this is for a 50th Wedding Anniversary, I die cut the 50 in Gold foil with the Adhesive Foam Sheet behind it for extra height.

Oh and did you wonder how I got those dots on the white card base? I used placed the decorative mask on top of the card and ran it through my cut & emboss machine!

The layers behind the flowers are Daffodil Delight (Stitched Rectangle dies) and Poppy Parade card.

Most Wonderful Time for Beginner Stampers

Do you sometimes get a bit overwhelmed with product choice, especially when you are starting out?

Well fear no more, because this product medley, has most of the product included in the kit. Just add cardstock, adhesive and inks to complete your projects.

  • The Most Wonderful Time Product Medley includes these exclusive products:
  • Most Wonderful Time photopolymer stamp set – 11 stamps; suggested clear blocks (sold separately): b, d, g)
  • 48 sheets of 6″ x 6″ (15.2 x 15.2cm) Designer Series Paper, 8 each of 6 double-sided designs
  • 12 gold foil card fronts, 4 each of 3 designs
  • 7 sticker sheets
  • Gold/white tinsel trim, 10 yards (9.1m)
  • 58 adhesive-backed gold faceted stars
  • 6-piece Most Wonderful Time Dies (use with a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine, AC p. 170)

Product colours: Basic Black, Old Olive, Real Red, White, Gold foil

This card I have kept very simple, aimed at the beginner stamper. A Real Red card base folded in half with a strip of the patterned paper down the centre. This paper has a gold foil accent on the trees, which adds a classy look.

The banner and the deer are both stickers, so very easy to add. Stamp the tree onto a Stitched Oval in Old Olive ink then using the Wink of Stella pen, colour the image while the ink is still wet. This will pick up some of the colour and blend beautifully (I don’t think you can see the glittery look in the photos). Add one of the gold stars to the top of the tree to finish off.
