Birthday, Blog Hop, Handmade Cards, Masculine, Stampin' Up!

Colour Creations Showcase – Basic Gray

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Tonight’s Stampin’ Up! colour to showcase is Basic Gray!

The Beautiful World Bundle is just the perfect product for Masculine cards, or even using with your travel photos in a memory album.

The Basic Gray card base (10.5 x 29.7cm) is folded in half, then I glued some die cut globes in the same cardstock as my feature background. The Very Vanilla layer (6 x 10cm) is stamped with the globe then glued to the Basic Gray layer (6.5 x 10.5cm) and run through the embossing machine with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. Now you can add the Silver stand.

Basic Gray Very Vanilla Silver Foil

The sentiment is from the Timeless Tulips stamp set and these pieces are cut using the new Lovely Labels Pick a Punch and added with dimensionals.

A simple sentiment is stamped inside and then the compass is stamped and cut out with the 1″ circle punch and glued to the card.

A World of Good

Now that you have seen the new 2020-2021 Annual catalogue, what are your top products that you want to buy or have already purchased? If you are anything like me, I couldn’t wait for 3 June to arrive!!!! 💜

This World of Good Suite was top of my list (along with a few others, hehe) and I love that we have a few more masculine products to select from this year. I really struggle creating masculine cards, but this suite is just fantastic with all the coordinating products to choose from!

The designer paper I have used today is from the one sheet. I just cut one third off, flipped it over and glued it to my card! This is a great way of seeing both sides of the papers.

World of Good Suite by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2020

Do you see that feather? Well the die doesn’t emboss all that detail on it, so I just used the stylus from my Simply Scored and added all those lines, freehand!

The sentiment is stamped on Early Espresso card in Verssmark ink, White Stampin’ Emboss Powder added and heat set. The Lovely Labels Pick a Punch is new and it is fantastic. You can make 3 different width sizes and 2 different fancy shapes at the ends of the labels and you can make any length, all from the one punch!!!

It is hard to see in this picture below, but the Brass Foiling on the paper is so bright and shiny; it’s a real wow!

Colour Creations Showcase – Balmy Blue

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Today is the first day we begin this new adventure of the Colour Creations Showcase. You may recall we did one of these with the last colour refresh a year or two ago, and it was loads of fun, so every Wednesday we will bring to you, projects showcasing one particular Stampin’ Up! colour. There are 50 colours in the collection and today we begin with Balmy Blue!

For today’s card I am using the stamp set, A Good Man and some of the new designer series paper, World of Good, along with some other new products available in the Annual catalogue.

Balmy Blue Night of Navy Whisper White Early Epresso

The designer paper is given that aged look with the new Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder. It is just perfect for this project, don’t you think?

The image is stamped with Memento Black ink and coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers, then die cut using the Tasteful Labels dies. I ran the Saddle Brown Stazon ink pad around the edges of this die cut image (and the Designer Paper) to add that aged look.

On the inside of the card, I added a layer of Balmy Blue and Whisper White card and stamped the sentiment and a heart in coordinating inks.

Breathtaking Bouquet with Pigment Sprinkle water colours!

Have you ever tried water colouring with the Pigment Sprinkles? No, well check out these vibrantly coloured cards!

I placed a tiny amount of pigment sprinkles onto a clear block and used my AquaPainter to add water and start colouring. You can also mix the colours to get a huge variety of colour.

Farewell Country Club

I am very sad to be saying farewell to this amazing bundle of products; Country Club suite, and the end of the month. Having parents who are keen golfers, this has been a wonderful addition to my crafting stash!

The centre layer is a piece of 4″ x 4″ white card stock placed in the Stamparatus and stamped in a circle using a template that I made. You can find loads of video tutorials on this technique, Stamp in the Round on YouTube. The mat layer is Terracotta Tile card on the DSP and all layered onto a Garden Green card base.

Have you tried this technique? I adore it!

My next card to share with you focuses on the Designer Papers and the Stamp & Die bundle!

Straight to the Clubhouse

Tonight’s card was super quick to make with just some DSP, embellishments and stamping. By adding a few die cuts to add some interest, this card was done in no time!

Cut the piece of DSP 5mm smaller than your card front, then cut it at 8cm and flip the smaller piece over and glue them to the front of the card! I put some twine across this join with a couple of glue dots holding it down.

These wood elements are so awesome for adding texture to your cards. Simply stamp a sentiment on the shield with Black Stazon ink so it doesn’t bleed (don’t ask me how I know)! This particular stamp is from the A Good Man stamp set.

Masculine Creative Showcase with the Art with Heart Team

AWHT Creative Showcase Masculine

Welcome to our new Monthly Creative Showcase with the Art With Heart Team!

This month we are featuring Masculine themed projects. We have many masculine themed products in the Stampin’ Up! range including Stamp Sets and coordinating Dies, Designer Series Papers, Embellishments and Embossing Folders. The Art With Heart Team have a wonderful selection of projects to inspire you to create Masculine Masterpieces.

Now let’s get started!

This set of cards were very quick to create and I shared this style with my class ladies to help them cut into their Designer Series Papers. Starting with a simple card base, then cut one piece of DSP slightly smaller (5mm). Take the DSP and cut about a third off the bottom, then flip that piece over to the reverse design. Glue these to your card then add a strip of Tear & Tape across the join. Add some of the Braided Burlap Trim. Punch some 2″ Circles and stamp a sentiment and add a trinket with a glue dot!

This is a wonderful way to use your pretty DSPs without covering too much of the pattern with other elements. You can whip up a whole bunch of these in minutes.

My next project is a pop up box card or some call it a Card in a Box, but I wanted a longer length than usual. I needed it to be a landscape style for my golf scene, and it still fits into a C6 envelope!

Masculine card using Stampin Up Clubhouse Golf by Kate Morgan Australia 2020.

Did you know that the golf ball can be cut out using your 1″ circle punch?!! Yep, it’s the perfect fit!!!

I stamped the entire image in Garden Green and die cut it out, then stamped the image again in Smoky Slate. Instead of die cutting, punch the golf ball and glue it to the die cut!

I also glued some of the grass die cuts in front and some behind the centre section for more depth. How cool are these wooden elements too?!

The back of the card is where you write your message and I have decorated it with some more of the DSP and a sentiment.

A tip: when gluing in the golfer, it is best to place your card on top of your envelope to ensure that all the images fit within the size of the envelope!

Do you know someone who loves golf?

Wow, it’s almost the end of another decade 😲 Where has the year gone? Did it disappear as fast for you too?!!!

Tonight’s card is another sneak peek of the Country Club Suite – but this is a quick and easy one to recreate. Simply using a piece of the Country Club Designer Series Paper, cover the front of the card.

Masculine card using Stampin Up Country Club Suite Clubhouse Mini 2020 by Kate Morgan, Australia front

To make the collar, I used the 4th largest die from the Stitched Rectangle dies, and placed it on an angle so the bottom section of the die is at the corner of the card and the centre. Once you have this piece cut, use it as a template to cut the other side exactly the same size. The centre piece with the buttons, I just used the same die cutting a couple of times to get a narrow piece. Glue this piece down before the collar. The buttons are the small golf ball dies in Whisper White card stock!

The gold clubs are die cut in Garden Green card stock.

Stamp the envelope and the inside of the card to tie them all together.
