Blog Hop/Creative Showcase, Handmade Cards, Stampin' Up!

Beautifully Happy Sneak Peek

2022-23 CCBH Logo

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

Week 30 – Mint Macaron

Initially I created a fancy fold card for this post, but as I began to type, I realised I had used a retired SAB designer paper, oops. I’ll share that card with you tomorrow!

Today’s card is created using a new stamp set, Beautifully Happy, that I received at our recent demonstrator event, OnStage. This stamp set is a Sale•a•bration item that can be earned free with a qualifying order in Jan/Feb 2023. It is a distinktive stamp, meaning it gives a photo realistic style with lot of depth and dimension without needing two or three step stamping.

A Mint Macaron card base with a layer of Gingham Cottage DSP which has been embossed with the Stitched Greenery die through my die cutting Machine. The Framed Florets die is cut in Basic White and Orchid Oasis ink applied with a Blending Brush. A double bow of Orchid Oasis Metallic Woven Ribbon is added with a Glue Dot.

The floral image is stamped in Memento Black ink and coloured with Mint Macaron, Orchid Oasis and Mango Melody inks. I used Paper Snips to fussy cut the image and applied Mini Dimensionals to add it to my card. The sentiment is stamped and fussy cut also and added the same way with Mini Dimensionals. I added Wink of Stella to the flowers (it doesn’t show in the photos). Some Iridescent Rhinestones Basic Jewels are added for some extra sparkle!

On the inside I added a Basic White layer with an offcut of the Stitched Greenery embossed Gingham Cottage DSP.
