Colour Creations: Tranquil Tide with Cling Wrap Technique

9bdc0-34343751_10157403755198098_7101250458500464640_o

Welcome back to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring our 50th and final Stampin’ Up! colour; Tranquil Tide.  I have to say I have thoroughly enjoyed being part of this blog hop each week and thank Catherine for coordinating it all year long! xx

This card uses the Cling Wrap technique and the Rooted in Nature Suite of products.

The cling wrap technique is using some cling wrap or even an old plastic bag from the supermarket, scrunch it up and drab it into an inkpad and then dab onto the cardstock. Repeat this process with a couple of other colours. I have used Balmy Blue, Coastal Cabana & Soft Sea Foam onto a small piece of Soft Sea Foam cardstock. Once I had the coverage I wanted, I stamped the image & sentiment in Black ink.

Then I placed the card into my Stampin’ Trimmer and cut it on the diagonal. No special measurement, just sliced it twice. I glued it onto some tranquil tide card leaving a small gap between each section, before mounting onto some black cardstock. Doesn’t it give a great effect?!!!

The 1/2″ Woven Ribbon (retired) was the perfect addition for my Tranquil Tide card.

The card base is Basic Black with a layer of Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper.

Once the card was finished, I added some Wink of Stella (my favourite product!) over the tree image and added a couple of rhinestones.

On the inside I had to add a layer of tranquil tide then some whisper white to be able to write on. It looked a little plain, so I added a small strip of the same DSP.

Thank You Petal Promenade

Tonight’s card is using some soon to retire products from the Annual catalogue. This stunning Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper is glorious and makes me smile with all all those gorgeous blooms. I can almost smell them!

The colours are also soon to retire, so if you love them too, you need to get them before they are gone. Tranquil Tide, Fresh Fig and Powder Pink are three of the In Colours of 2017-2019. I just love the 3 of them together.

This Dotted Tulle ribbon will also retire and it has been super popular with its softness and dotted pattern. The sentiment is stamped on white card and the 2″ circle punch to cut it out. Then I layered it onto a Fresh Fig Starburst punched piece.

This card is a Trifold card which Ronda Wade shared recently, but I have altered the measurements for our Australian card sizes. You can see how it opens here:

9bdc0-34343751_10157403755198098_7101250458500464640_o

Welcome back to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring our 46th colour; Smoky Slate.

I have gone with a Monotone card using this gorgeous Wonderful Romance stamp set and the coordinating Wonderful Floral Framelits (both products are retiring on 3 June unless sold out prior) so make sure you add them to your shopping cart now!

The card base is Smoky Slate with a layer of Whisper White with 1″ panels in the above colours.

Then I stamped the images in Stazon ink and used the AquaPainter to watercolour the images with ink refills. I also added Wink of Stella to the flowers and those tiny leaves. I love those black embossed die cut leaves behind for a dramatic effect!

Colour Creations: Shaded Spruce for a Tropical Chic Thank you!

9bdc0-34343751_10157403755198098_7101250458500464640_o

Welcome back to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop  featuring our 45th colour; Shaded Spruce. Wow, can you believe there are only 5 more colours to go?!

How cool is this tropical card using lots of the Tropical Escape DSP, some simple stamping and some embossing to add some shine!

That large leaf is stamped in Granny Apple Green ink and then I used a sponge dauber to add some extra tone with Shaded Spruce ink around the edges before stamping it onto some White card.

How beautiful does that copper embossed flower look on the Petal Pink card stock? It looks even better in real life, as the card stock has similar tones! I have popped these stamped pieces up on dimensionals.

and because that copper embossed flower looked so good, I did another one for the inside with some more DSP!

Sending All My Heartfelt Thanks

Tonight’s card is the same style as the one I showed you recently. You can see it here. However this one opens in landscape, rather than portrait, but it is the same concept!

I began with Poppy Parade card: 21cm x 14.8cm folded in half.
The DSP Layer: 10cm x 14.3cm is glued to the card front and then the circle punch is used to punch the window. The sentiment is stamped and a few different punches were used to layer it. The Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing folder was used for added interest on the Poppy Parade Story Label punched piece.

Heartfelt Thanks with Stampin Up Painted Seasons Bundle, Well Said, Well Written by Kate Morgan, Australia, Occasions 2019.JPG

The inside panel is 5 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 3/4″, 2 3/4″, 3 1/2″. Before adhering it into the card, I added a little die cut bird and ‘thanks’ and stamped Heartfelt in Poppy Parade ink. I also stamped the leaves directly onto the insert card. Then I stamped two of the flower images and die cut them before gluing them down.

Here is another angle so you can see how the inside works. I love how the sentiment sits on that panel when you open the card!

Window pop up card with Painted Seasons

Tonight I have this pretty Lemon Lime Twist card created with the Painted Seasons Bundle. The paper is so beautiful with all the succulents. I created the window in the front using the 1 3/4″ circle punch and then framed it with Powder Pink scallop circle, die cut with the Layering Circle Framelits.

Lemon Lime Twist card: 21cm x 14.8cm folded in half.
Powder Pink Layer: 10cm x 14.3cm
DSP Layer: 9.5cm x 13.8cm

Thanks card with Stampin Up Painted Seasons Bundle, Well Said, Well Written by Kate Morgan Australia, Occasions 2019.JPG

The succulent flower is inked with Lemon Lime Twist and then I used the Flirty Flamingo and Call Me Clover Stampin’ Write Markers to add some detail to the stamp before stamping it onto the white card. The one on the inside left of the card was initially stamped with Pool Party ink and the same markers to add the detail. The sentiment is die cut 3 times and layered together slightly offsetting each one, then adding some Wink of Stella on top!

When you open the card it has this fancy fold inside!

Thanks card with Stampin Up Painted Seasons Bundle, Well Said, Well Written by Kate Morgan, Australia, Occasions 2019.

The inside panel is 5 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 3/4″, 2 3/4″, 3 1/2″. I added a strip of DSP down the right side and stamped the leaves and added the succulent so it appears through the circle window on the front.

Once you emboss the white layer with the embossing folder through the Big Shot, use the Stampin’ Blends Markers to colour the raised flowers.

No matter who we are, we are all the same on the inside!

Today’s card is a small token (with a big bunch of bright pink gerbera flowers) of thanks for a dear friend of mine who has been so supportive of me in my fight with MS. She’s wanted to support and help me in easing the pressure of learning to drive again (using hand controls) to regain some independence. She setup a Go Fund Me page and  I cannot thank everyone enough with how generous they have been. Yesterday I had another driving lesson which took us through busy Dandenong, learning to park and drive through unpredictable and unknown areas. I am so determined to do this and with Lisa’s help it is feeling closer than ever. Thank you xxx

Here is the card I made her using the Artfully Aware stamp set from pg46 of the 2019 Occasions Catalogue. This is the perfect stamp set, don’t you think?!

I stamped the ribbon image multiple times in the background in Petal Pink and used the Wink of Stella to colour each one (the photo doesn’t do it justice).

Artfully Aware Thank you by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia.jpg

The image is stamped in Memento Black ink and coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers.

How good does the layering of the different punched pieces look? I also dry embossed them with different embossing folders for extra texture. The embellishment of the ladies wrist is a retired Glitter Epoxy Shape, but I thought is was cute.

Artfully Aware Thank you card by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia

You know friends really are so supportive and being International Women’s Day, it was the absolute perfect time to share this.
