CCBH Pacific Point: Masculine cards

CCS Logo 2021-22

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

Week 33 – Pacific Point

Firstly I acknowledge the traditional owners of Australia and the sadness that today brings. We need to come together as a nation and in doing so we can not forget the past, but be reminded that we are now the lucky ones to live in and share this great land.

Australia Day is an important day in my families calendar and I give a big shout out to my dear dad who happens to also celebrate his birthday every year on this public holiday!

Card 1 I am using the Home & Garden Bundle (Home & Garden stamp set & Garden dies). I began with a Thick Basic White card base, then a layer of Pacific Point card before adhering a layer of the brick design from the In Good Taste DSP.

I used Soft Suede card to stamp the shovel and two ladders with Early Espresso ink and I die cut the wood shelf which also embosses! The broom is stamped in the same ink but onto Basic White card and before the ink dried, I used the Wink of Stella to lightly colour it. The spades were diecut in silver foil and I gave them a bit of a curve using my fingers to bend the foil.

The sentiment was stamped in Pacific Point ink and cut into idividual words. Old Olive is used for the grass and vine. The grass is embossed with the Timeworn Type 3D embossing folder and some ink gently applied with a sponge dauber. I also did this with the vine. Basic Black card was used for the hooks.

Card 2 – I have wanted to try the floating strip technique for a while and so while I had plenty of time over the past to weeks while in isolation (my youngest daughter tested positive to Covid), I had fun trying this out. I have gone for the primary colours for my strips; Pacific Point, Daffodil Delight & Poppy Parade.  I cut my strips to 1cm wide and glued them to a piece of Window Sheet before die cutting with the Scalloped Contours die.

My card base is randomly stamped in Pacific Point ink with the small star from the All For Baby stamp set. The next layer is the new Mother of Pearl Specialty paper. It looks so amazing in real life 😉

I used the Detailed Trio Punch to round two corners to mimic the scallop edging before adhering to the card base. The Stitched Stars are die cut from the Mother of Pearl paper.

The sentiment* (Special Moments stamp set) is stamped in Versamark ink, White Emboss Powder was added and heat set with my Heat Tool before bring fussy cut with Paper Snips. All these are added to the strips with Multipurpose Glue.

Placing dimensionals on the back of the window sheet, behind the strips so you cannot see them through the front of the card. Remove the backings and place to the cente of the card.

On the inside I added a Basic White panel and placed three stips to the bottom with another small Stitched Star to the centre of the blue one! Doesn’t it look so cute?!!!

  1. Kate, your dad’s birthday card is gorgeous! I love the special little details like curving the foil on the shovel and spade which look fantastic. Your floating strip card is the best and most beautiful one I’ve seen. I love the primary colours which look so bright and happy. Cutting the strips with a scalloped contour die gives the floating panel a great look! I love the stars and embossed sentiment too.

  3. The gardening scene you have created is very cool, Kate. I especially love your second card, with its super-bright colours, and use of the floating strip technique. Snap, on the “stars and strips” (ha ha) theme. 🙂
