Curvy Christmas & Classic Christmas DSP

Quite Curvy & Curvy Dies

Here is my first card I have made with this suite. I have used Sahara Sand, Whisper White, with a touch of Blushing Bride on the birds’ chest.

I tied a double bow in Linen Thread and added it with a multipurpose glue to the branches. Here you can see the Blushing Bride ink which I applied using the blender pens for that real soft touch of colour.

The sentiment is stamped in Sahara Sand ink using the Stamparatus to get that nice deep and even colour. The ‘at Christmas’ is only part of one of the stamps, so I just inked up the words I needed!

I just love the curves of these dies and I know I will use them heaps.

Here’s to a cool yule!

I just love this little guy and doesn’t he have the cutest face ever?! He just makes me smile.

This is a fairly simple card using the gorgeous Snowflake Splendor patterned paper (on sale) as the background with some stamping of the pine trees and sentiment in Highland Heather.

The reindeer is stamped in Memento, coloured with Ivory/Bronze/Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends and fussy cut, then added with dimensionals.

Week 22 – Just Jade

Tonight’s card is a real mish mash of products – In Good Taste DSP and Peony Garden DSP, which are both on sale in October, then I have the Free as a Bird Stamp Set and the Home Together dies from the Christmas range!

When I saw this little house die, it reminded me of a bird feeder on a pole in the garden and so I paired it with the Free a a bird stamp. This image is coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I just love the dark wood of the In Good Taste DSP in the background and for the bird feeder. I initially had just the Jade embossed layer but added the piece from the Peony Garden DSP as well for some contrast. This is a real nature’s dream of a card!

Birthday, Designer Series Paper, Handmade Cards, Stampin' Up!, Techniques & Tutorials

Water Stamping and today’ plan… Cocktails!

Tonight’s card is from a recent ATC Swap I took part in and the technique was Water Stamping! I had never heard this term before, so was excited to give it a try. There are loads of videos out there if you want to Google it.

The base card I randomly stamped the word ‘Cocktails’ in the same colour ink, then layered up some pieces of Plaid Tidings DSP and Poppy Parade card stock. The top layer started out white, yes can you believe that?!!! Sponging on some Misty Moonlight and Just Jade ink randomly, but fairly heavily for a lovely depth of colour. Then place a piece of paper towel on a plate, add some water to soak it, then take your stamp and use this instead of ink. Leave it to dry for an hour or so and you get this lovely bleached stamped look.

I stamped the same image again onto white card and coloured it with the coordinating stamps. I used the dies to cut it out. The top sentiment is stamped in Versamark, White Emboss Powder added and heat set. The Cocktails is another die and glued directly to the card.

I popped up the cocktail glass on mini dimensionals and finished with some Fine Tip Glue on the ice cubes and orange slice for some shine! I think this card could be given to any adult, as it isn’t really masculine or feminine. What do you think?

Plaid Tidings with Paper Piecing Bow

Plaid Tidings patterned paper is another of the packs that is on sale this month and tonight I have teamed it up with the reindeer image from the Warm & Toasty stamp set and includes some Paper Piecing!

The bow on this reindeer, I coloured with a Black Stampin’ Write Marker direct to the stamp and stamped it into the centre of this plaid piece of paper. I cut out a small square just around the image with my trimmer (the oval is placed over the top to hide the hole) then neatly cut around the edges of the bow. Using the marker, I ran it around the edges to make the sides black, so when it’s glued to the reindeer, it looks like one piece. The reindeer is coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I added a little Wink of Stella to the antlers, hooves and nose. The oval is popped up on dimensionals.

CCS Week 21- Highland Heather is Warm and Toasty for Christmas

Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining the Colour Creations Showcase to bring you creative inspiration to showcase our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours.

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Week 21 – Highland Heather

Have you placed your order for the 15% off patterned papers on sale this month? Tonight’s card is made with the Snowflake Splendor DSP which is on sale and guess who bought it? ME!!! And it is so pretty in real life, you have to see it to believe it.

I am a big fan of these colours together, so even though I don’t have any of the other products in the suite, I think it can still be used with many of our other products available, including this cute stamp set that popped into my order last month during the one day Mega stamp sale!

Here I have used the Sunburst Technique which I shared recently in our Monthly Creative Showcase with the Whale of a Time DSP, but wanted to use this paper, as every sheet is gorgeous on both sides and I needed to show it all. This uses only one piece of 6″ x 6″.

How did I create the Sunburst? Take a piece of 12cm x 12cm card and using a pencil draw these lines; corner to corner and in half both sides.

Cut a piece of 6″ x 6″ patterned paper in half and each of these in half again to be 3″ x 3″ squares. Measure two sides and mark the centre with a pencil. Cut from each of these marks to the far corner (as shown below). Repeat on other squares.

Now you will have this. Turn over every second piece to show the opposite side of the paper (you may need to move pieces around to fit. It’s best to do this before you stick them down to the card base.

Add Stampin’ Seal over each of the pencil lines on your backing card and around the edges. Start placing the pieces, lining up the straight lines of each quarter.

Once you finished, it may not look perfect, but flip it over and trim off the edges with scissors or your Trimmer.

Now you can glue this piece to your card front and add your embellishments, sentiment and stamped image.

This stamp set, Warm & Toasty has super cute images and they are perfect for colouring with our Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I enjoyed making this so much, I made a second one with the polar bear!

Heart of Christmas: Trimming the Town Card and Shaker Ornament

Heart of Christmas image

Welcome back to our second Heart of Christmas post with the Art with Heart Team. Each month we are sharing Christmas inspiration with you using current Stampin’ Up! products.

2020 August-December Mini Catalogue

Tonight I have a Christmas card and ornament to share with you. I love this Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper and it makes the most gorgeous decorations to hang on your tree this festive season. This paper is part of the 15% off sale on right now!

01-10-20_DSP_SALE

Here is my card predominantly using the DSP with very little stamping; in fact the car and the wreath on the house are the only stamped images.

To go with my card is this Shaker Ornament using the same suite

Using 3 sizes of circle dies, you will need to cut the following pieces;
Largest die: Blue base (pictured with ribbon), the blue ring (top piece), Foam Sheet, DSP
Middle die: Foam sheet & Window Sheet
Smallest die: cut the centre of the top piece & cut the centre of the foam sheet

Glue the ribbon to the base piece (shown above) then glue the DSP circle over the top. I cut out some of the trees and house from another piece of the DSP and glued these on, along with a stamped sentiment.

Glue the window sheet onto the blue ring

Place the foam circle on top of the window sheet.

Add some tiny clear beads to the centre of the ornament and very carefully place the above piece on top.

Then tie a bow and add it to the top to finish it off.

Have I inspired you to make some decorations for your tree this Christmas?

Mary Poppin’s Style Bag

I was watching a YouTube tutorial recently by Julie Di Matteo who made this cute Mary Poppin’s inspired bag using a 6″ x 6″ piece of DSP.

Mini Mary Poppins Bag using Stampin Up Peony Garden DSP by Kate Morgan, Australia 2020

It was tiny, so I wanted to try it using a full sheet of 12″ x 12″ Ornate Garden DSP and I was so happy with the result!

I love the Bumblebee cardstock for the handle and closure, and these Beaded Pearls added an extra touch of glamour. I used a velcro dot for the closure under the pearls, as I couldn’t find my magnets anywhere in my craft room!

To create a 12 x 12 bag, use the same process but the score lines are 4¼” & 7¾”.

Week 20 – Gray Granite

How pretty does this patterned paper look when coloured with the Pool Party Stampin’ Blends?!!!

This Designer Paper pack is on sale for the month of October saving you 15%, so make sure you add it to your next order!

01-10-20_DSP_SALE

The flower is stamped in Gray Granite ink and coloured with Petal Pink and Daffodil Delight Blends. The leaves I left uncoloured.

The sentiment is die cut in white and then I traced the outside of the die onto Gray Granite card and fussy cut it out to get that layered look and it really pops!

I added the gold hoop with some gold thread before placing the flower on top. I added the beautiful white bow and some rhinestones round the card for some extra sparkle.

The inside I coloured an offcut of the DSP with Pool Party and Petal Pink Blends to tie in with the front of the card.

Most Wonderful Time in the Pine Woods

The Most Wonderful Time Product Medley is fantastic value, especially if you are just starting out on your stamping journey or just need everything coordinating with one product code to order! You get the card, designer paper, Embellishments, stickers, dies and stamp set!

For my card today, I have used the pretty deer paper with the gold foil accents as my base.

The Pine Woods dies are so pretty too and I’ve used them today on this card, but you could just use the ones in the medley!

The banner I created myself with the Triple Banner Punch for the ends and I just score 2 lines either side of the sentiment, ¼” apart. I did stamp the sentiment first, then created the folds and added a dimensional behind the sentiment so it sat up. The gold stars are also part of the Medley!
