Red Roses for Christmas

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop 2019

We are back for another week of Heart of Christmas and again I am sharing the Christmastime is Here Suite.  

This Christmas Rose stamp set (#153944) and coordinating Roses dies (#152431) are super pretty and as you will see, when coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers, you can create some amazing Christmas projects. You can also purchase the Stamp set and dies as a bundle saving 10% (#153947), but they are only available while stocks last.

I really love the richness of this card and the pop of colour of the featured rose.

Peachy tones for Christmas time

Tonight I am sharing the Christmastime is Here Suite, only available while stocks last, so make sure you add it to your cart now if you are thinking of purchasing it. My card tonight is not so Chrismassy though and I wanted to show you that it can be used for other occasions!

This Christmas Rose stamp set (#153944) and coordinating Roses dies (#152431) are available as a bundle saving 10% (#153947) or individually.

I deliberately haven’t added a sentiment to this card, as I was experimenting with different colours. I used to love the Just Joey roses at my mums house as they were this very soft peachy pink colour. I have used Petal Pink for mine.

Can you see all the glitter on the roses? It’s a little hard to see in the photo, but when I was adding the Wink of Stella to the purple berries and the pine cones, my Wink of Stella got flowing a bit too quickly and I ended up with glitter on my fingers. So I just rubbed my fingers over the rose petals! I love the soft effect it adds.

Christmas product for a rosey birthday

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop 2019

Even thought this is a Christmas suite of products, it doesn’t have to necessarily be used for Christmas cards. I am sharing a card tonight that I have made for a family member who loves flowers, especially roses and as soon as I saw this paper I knew it had to be used for her birthday card. This card is super simple and for the Beginner Stamper in mind, as it is mainly using the gorgeous Designer Paper as the focus.

Using another of the Ornate Frames Dies adds a gorgeous filigree pattern for the sentiment to be stamped in metallic ink.  Wrapping some Gold ribbon around the centre over the paper joins and adding a bow in the same ribbon.

Art with Heart Blog Hop: featuring Embossing Folders

AWHT Enmbossing folder Blog Hop 2019.jpg

Welcome to another Art With Heart Blog Hop. This month we are featuring Stampin’ Up’s! versatile range of Embossing Folders. There are new Embossing Folders available in every Stampin’ Up! catalogue and they are an inexpensive way of adding WOW to your projects. Currently there are 24 different Embossing Folders in the range.

Tonight we plan on showing you lots of ideas on how to use these folders.

If you’re already hopping, then you just came to me from the talented, Sujatha Harding. 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!

My first project uses many of the Stampin’ Up! Dynamic Textured Embossing Folders all in the one card. By just using 5 panels embossed with a different folder, gives loads of interest and texture to this card. On top of that, I have added the Heirloom Frames & 3D Embossing Folder!

The Purple Posy ink is now in stock and it is such a glorious colour. I have stamped the daisy four times with the ink before punching with the Medium Daisy Punch. Then I punched a couple of scallop circles from a retired punch and cut into each of the scallops to create petals, using fingers to create the curl. I added a pearl to the centre and a velum leaf underneath. The sentiment (Woven Heirloom stamp) is stamped onto White Vellum and glued behind the frame.

My next project is a 12″ x 12″ scrapbook page using the Pigment Sprinkles; the perfect product for this particular page. My 10 year old had so much fun at the recent Colour Explosion Fun Run held at her school. Look at that smile, it says it all!

The pigment Sprinkles can be quite messy to use and you need the smallest amount to create vibrant backgrounds. I sprinkled all the different colours onto the page and then used the Spritzer to add water and spread the colour.

Here is a close up of the embossed frame. I just had to create a page for her to remember the day in future years to look back on and have fond memories.

For best results when using the Stampin’ Up! 3D Embossing Folders; use the 3D Embossing Folder Plate; it adds a little more oomph to your die sandwich to make those 3D designs pop.

Mosaic Mood in Sunburst

I’ve used the Mosaic Mood DSP from the Annual catalogue for this card tonight. This is the Sunburst Technique and is a great way to showcase lots of patterns. I cut 4 different patterns of 6” x 1½” and cut each of those diagonally. Take a piece of scrap card stock and cut it 5mm smaller than your card front, cover it with Snail Adhesive. Start adding your pattern pieces from the bottom (the paper will over-hang off the card). Once you have covered the card, trim the excess off from around the card with your trimmer or scissors.

I covered the corner with a Stitched Circle Framelit in Blushing Bride and trimmed the excess hanging over the edge. The bird is fussy cut from one of the pieces of DSP and added with dimensionals. This layer is added to the Garden Green card base.

Now let’s get started!

Project #1 This Woven Threads DSP is just stunning and features the new In Colours. I have chosen the piece with Seaside Spray and Terracotta Tile. By punching the pieces of DSP and gluing them down with a small gap between them, creates this wonderful effect. The ribbon and the Ornate Frames Dies are from the Holiday catalogue and coordinate perfectly. These dies are part of the Halloween suite, however I love them on their own with other stamped sentiments.

Project #2 The Perennial Essence DSP is stunning and reflects Monet’s artworks. Having studied art at school, this was the first DSP added to my list. The Floral Essence Bundle coordinates with it and I added the flower to the bottom corner, so the DSP is the showcase.

Here is a closer look at the Delicata Golden Glitz inkpad on the vellum. I wasn’t sure how well it would dry and I was impatient, so I added clear embossing powder and heat set it. I was amazed that the glimmer still showed through so well!

Project #3 This card is a CASE (Copy & Share Everything) from a card on page 132 of the Annual Catalogue, although I have changed up lots of the products. The See a Silhouette DSP is so bold and bright and I found this pattern very overpowering, but by cutting the images out, you produce something wonderful! I adore these Heirloom 3D Frames too for the embossed background.

Wildly Happy Collage with Pigment Sprinkles

Tonight I have a collage scene using the fox image from the Wildly Happy stamp set. I have also used the Pigment Sprinkles on the Fluid 100 Water colour paper to create that textured background of the grass. Simply wet the paper with an AquaPainter and carefully sprinkle a very small amount of colour onto the paper. You will see it spread instantly and such vibrant colour. I also added a little water in the Stampin’ Spritzer to add a little more water to spread the colour. Leave it to dry completely before cutting the hill shape with scissors. The smaller hill is Mossy Meadow card, cut with the Layering Oval framelits and embossed with the Suble Dynamic Embossing Folder for extra texture.

Wildly Happy Fox Stampin Up by Kate Morgan Australia 2019.JPG

The tree is cut using the Sweet Silhouettes dies in Early Espresso card. I added this with mini dimensionals to add some height above the foxes.

The foxes are coloured using Stampin’ Blends markers and fussy cut before adding them to the card. I love how they are curled up resting under the tree!

Silhouette Scenes with the Rice Background Technique

Tonight I have a card that is created using the Rice Background Technique. Really it is a watercolour wash on the Fluid 100 Watercolour paper and while it’s still very wet, sprinkle some rice (or rock salt) over it and allow it to dry without moving it. Once it is dry, the rice draws the colour from the paper. Brush off the rice and you are left with this lovely effect. Mine is used to look like rain at sunset!

I stamped the image (Silhouette Scenes) with Versamark ink and applied the Shimmer Black Emboss Powder and heat set it with the Heat Tool.

Heirloom texture and embossing

When I started this card, I had the White card embossed with the Scripty Embossing Folder and the Tasteful backgrounds dies cut in Copper Foil and glued to the centre, but then I was stuck for inspiration on how to continue and finish this card.

Anyway, after a few weeks on the sidelines, it finally came to me like a light bulb moment, so to speak! I wanted to keep it delicate and so added the Petal Pink card base and then the oval Heirloom 3D Embossing folder and die to frame the copper picture.

I also purchased the Ornate Frames Dies from the Holiday catalogue in my pre-order, so I got those out and the Celestial Copper ink pad and stamped Happy Birthday, because we all need plenty of those cards! This new metallic ink pad dries really well and won’t smudge if left to dry. You can use the Heat Tool to dry it quicker, but it is so much better than the old Metallic Encore ink pads we used to have. I will have to place another order to add the Silver and Gold ones to my stash now I know how good they are!

I tied a bow with some copper trim and added it to the centre with a glue dot. So in the end, I was very happy with how this turned out. What do you think?

Beautiful Friendship is a wonderful thing

Tonight I have a card that I cased from the Creativity Cave. I just loved the bright colours with the splash of black!
