Soft Suede: Just Swinging By

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 50 – Soft Suede

Today brings us to the end of our 50 Stampin’ Up! colours. I hope you have enjoyed the journey?!  But it’s not really the end, as we will start again next week with some brand new In Colors available in the new Annual catalogue available on 2 May!!!

Today’s card features a new bundle in the upcoming Annual Catalogue, Little Monkey. This is  photopolymer stamp set and coordinating Punch bundle. I am also mixing things up with Soft Suede that is retiring on 1 May, Lemon Lime Twist is returning to the Bright’s collection and Lemon Lolly is a brand new colour for the Subtle’s collection!

Colour Combination - Soft Suede

A Soft Suede card base with a Lemon Lime Twist layer die cut using the Radiating Stitches dies (Online exclusives product only). The smaller layer also is from this die set and cut in Shimmery White cardstock (sadly retiring soon). Don’t adhere this layer until you’re ready to put it all together.

I stamped the tree images twice onto the Shimmery White layer and coloured the trunk with the Light Soft Suede Blends Marker. The leaves I coloured with the Lemon Lime Twist Stampin’ Write Marker. The monkey I stamped on a separate piece of Shimmery White cardstock and coloured it with the Ivory & Soft Suede Blends Combo Markers.

I punched it out along with an extra Soft Suede one, which I adhered them together with glue to make it a little more sturdy. I adhered a tiny 5mm round magnet to the back of the tail. I placed a second magnet on the back of the tree where the monkey will hang from. I didn’t glue it, it just stays there as long as you don’t pull the monkey off the front. I added Dimensionals to the back of the Shimmery White layer and around the magnet so it doesn’t move too far. Remove the paper backings and adhere this layer to your card.

The banana I stamped with Soft Suede ink on the new Lemon Lolly cardstock and fussy cut it with Paper Snips, then adhered it to the monkey’s arm with glue. Lemon Lolly’s the perfect colour!

Here is the little swinging monkey – isn’t it cute?!!! (sorry about the bandaid on my finger)

On the inside, I die cut some Lemon Lolly card with the same die as the front and added some stamping. You can see the envelope is stamped too!
