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.
A blog hop, also known as blog hopping, is to move from one blog to another, continuing in a full circle to read all the posts by participants in the hop. At the end of each post will be a link to continue to the next blog!
Week 6 – Blushing Bride
Card 1 – I finally opened my pack of Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper (on sale this month) and the Gold 6″x6″ Metallic Specialty Paper for this fancy fold card.
The image I initially stamped in Memento ink in the Stamparatus. I coloured it with Blends Combo Markers (Daffodil Delight & Mint Macaron), however they don’t come in Blushing Bride, so I used the stamp and Blushing Bride Inkpad to colour the main bloom and filled in the missing area with the Wink of Stella while the ink was still damp. Then I placed it back into the Stamparatus in the same position and inked the stamp with Versamark ink and stamped over the top of the Memento outline. Then I added Heat & Stick Powder and heat set it with the Heat Tool. Next, add some Gilded Flakes and rub around with your finger to remove the excess before die cutting the image. Doesn’t it look gorgeous?!!!
The scallop squares are cut using the Stitched So Sweetly dies. These are rectangular, however once you cut one, I then placed the die partially over the rectangle to cut it down to a square!
The back of the card is where you write your message to the recipient!
Here is how it fits into the Very Vanilla C6 envelope for posting!
I cased this idea from Samantha Clayton (Mixed Up Craft), but used different products and I altered my measurements so this card would fit into our Very Vanilla C6 envelope!
Misty Moonlight card base: 8¼” x 6”, score (landscape) at 1″, 2″, 3″ from each end.
Rotate 90° with edge of card at 1″ mark – cut from first scoreline to third scoreline only. Lift the blade and cut from the next scoreline down to the last scoreline only. Repeat this on the other side.
Blushing Bride cardstock: 4⅛” x ⅞” (2) and 5⅞” x ⅞” (2)
DSP layers: 4″ x ¾” (2) and 5¾” x ¾” (2)
Basic White cardstock for back: 5¾” x 2¼”
The folds can be worked out from the photo images above.
Card 2 – this card also uses similar products to the previous card, with the addition of this gorgeous Stitched Greenery Die used on the Basic Black layer. The patterned paper is cut using the Stitched So Sweetly dies giving that pretty scallop edge and stitched border. I also used the smaller rectangle die in vellum (behind the flower).
The banner is actually made of cardstock – I cut 2cm strip and folded it in half lengthwise and glued it, so I had the same design on both sides. Then I folded it in a ‘z’ and cut the ends as banners with my paper snips. The main floral image and the sentiment are stamped with Versamark ink, Heat & Stick Powder added and gently heat set this with the Heat Tool so the powder just melts, then add Gilded Leafing. Using a sponge dauber, gently rub in small circular motions to remove the excess gilding.
Using the Penned Flower dies to cut it out, I coloured the image with Water Painters and ink directly from the Soft Succulent, Blushing Bride & Pale Papaya inkpads.
I repeated the process for the main image twice and placed the second one on the inside of the card, after I added some Soft Succulent ink with a Blending Brush.
