Colour Creations: Cajun Craze and Animal Outings

Hello Crafters,

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Cajun Craze!!!

You may not have seen a lot of this colour on my projects, as I am not a big fan of the colour, but I think it works well for this lovable big ‘Red Kangaroo’, a true colour of the worlds largest mammal and Australia’s biggest marsupial!

I used the Nature’s Poem DSP and did my own fancy fold that I sure am loving using with the different DSPs. Instructions & measurements can be found here!

Farewell, Masculine, Stampin' Up!

Masculine Farewell with Rooted in Nature

Dear Crafters,

Today’s card is another farewell card, but this time we have a masculine theme. I thought that the new Rooted in Nature bundle was going to be the perfect choice!

Here I have used Dapper Denim & Emerald Envy, two colours that will be retiring at the end of this month. I’ve also used Very Vanilla, with a new in color, Grapefruit Grove with Soft Suede & Dapper Denim ink pads. These colours go so well together!

I stamped the leaves before die cutting them and adding them to the card base with fast fuse. I embossed a couple of the leaves with the new Big Shot Embossing Mats before die cutting them. I tried cutting them first, then embossing, but it was too hard that way. Doesn’t it give a beautiful texture?!!

The Farewell sentiment was printed from my computer and cut out with the Classic Label Punch.

Quick card using Delightful Daisy DSP

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a quick card using up some Designer Series Paper that will be retiring at the end of the month. This is the Delightful Daisy DSP!

This particular pattern is very bright and bold, but it looks great cut into a large rectangle, mounted with a white border along 2 sides and placed in one corner leaving the Old Olive card base to show. A white banner is added with the sentiment (from Petal Palette) stamped in Old Olive ink. A ribbon bow is added to finish it off!

I was asked to make quite a few cards for my workplace and what better way to use up some DSP!

Art with Heart Blog Hop: Retiring Products 2018

Dear Crafters,

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring products from the last chance products list. There are lots of products to choose from with retiring stamp sets, inkpads and ink refills guaranteed to be available until 7 May (and all other products while supplies last). Contact anyone on the blog hop to place your last chance order today.
If you’re already hopping, then you just came to me from the lovely, Monika. If you’re just joining, great! Use the “next” button at the end of my post to hop all the way around. Blog Hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post there is a link to the next one. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links.

Now let’s get started!

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing our favourite retiring products and mine is definitely the Watercolour Wings stamp set and coordinating dies, Bold Butterfly framelits & Butterflies thinlits.

I have also used 3 of my favourite retiring colours; Island Indigo, Pink Pirouette, Rose Red, and I will miss them, however there are some new stunning colours to replace them. Yay!

The 1/8″ metallic gold ribbon is also retiring, so make sure you get some of that added to your shopping cart. I have used it on the Rose Red card above in horizontal stripes. I also added Versamark ink to the centre of the butterfly as well as sponged it around the edges of the Rose Red card, added some Gold embossing powder and heat set it for added shine. I used my Fine Tip glue pen to add to the dots on the butterfly, gold embossing powder and heat set!

My next card uses the same products but I have teamed it up with the stunning Painted with Love DSP which will also retire on 31st May. It has this amazing gold through it. This card is a pop through card, where the butterfly slides through the slit when you open it!

I sure will miss these products but I am looking forward to sharing some new items soon.

Farewell, Masculine, Stampin' Up!

Farewell, Lovely as a Tree

Dear Crafters,

It’s coming to the end of the school year, and many teachers come and go at this time, so here is another Masculine farewell card, using the Lovely as a Tree & Hardwood stamp sets.

Masculine Farewell card using Stampin Up Lovely as a Tree, & Hardwood stamp with sponging by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator, Australia #stampinup

I stamped the woodgrain image and them used a sponge dauber to add some extra colour and tone.

I also sponged some Marina Mist ink across the branches of the trees to give some colour to the sky behind. The font was printed on my computer.

Earthy tones for a Masculine card

Hello Friends,

My project today is a Masculine Farewell card using the Wood Textures Designer Paper, Painted Harvest stamp set and the Seasonal Layers thinlits.

I initially had the Lemon Lime Twist panel on the left plain, but then i decided to stamp those little acorns and I think it looks great. I also stamped one on the envelope!

The sentiment was printed using my computer, but look at that detail in the Wood Textures DSP?!!! It has so much detail and it looks so real! I love these detailed leaves too.

On the inside of the card I used some of the Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape and a small piece of the Wood Textures DSP.

Hello Friends,

My project today features the gorgeous Wood Textures DSP and isn’t it stunning?!!

I was asked to make quite a few masculine farewell cards and this is a style that I struggle with immensely, but I actually love this. I saw a similar card by Jo Anne Hewins on Pinterest and went from there.

She believed she could… so she did!

Hello Friends,

My project today is a quick and easy card using the This Little Piggy stamp set with the Stampin’ Blends Markers to colour the image.

IMG_6851

I have only used the Pink Pirouette Combo pack of blends markers ($15.50) for this card to colour and blend the pig. Such great value! I did add some Wink of Stella to her wings though for a little extra sparkle!!!

Farewell, Stampin' Up!, Sympathy

Sympathy for a beloved pet

Hello Friends,

My project today is with a touch of sadness for a teacher colleague who lost her beloved best friend during the recent school holidays 😦

This is the card I made for her, in the hope that it may bring some comfort and lasting memories of her loved, Becks (named after David Beckham)!

Sympathy card for a pet using Stampin Ups Bella &amp; Friends, Flourishing Phrases by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator, Australia

He was a little white fella, so I obviously had to use the Bella & Friends stamp set. I stamped the image in black ink and then used my blender pen with some smoky slate ink to add some highlighting. Of course I needed to add a red collar with the red heart with a touch of Wink of Stella on top!

My card base is Chocolate Chip with a layer of Lemon Lime Twist, then White. The floral image is stamped with Lemon Lime Twist on the front and the inside panel is stamped off once before stamping on the card.
