Bouquet of Love

Tonight’s focus is on the amazing Bouquet of Love Hybrid Folder which also includes a heart die and sits inside the folder to cut at the same time as embossing the cardstock!!! Yes, it is amazing!

This first card is very dramatic – it started off being a Blushing Bride card, but I found it a little underwhelming. I placed the embossed piece back into the folder and inked the opposite side of the folder with Black Memento ink. Carefully, I closed the folder and ran it back through my machine and wow, what a result. I wanted it a little darker though, so repeated the process and here is the result.

I glued it to a layer of Basic Black card, which is how I got that black heart in the centre. Then I glued it to the Blushing Bride card. Next I added the gingham ribbon bow, die cut the flowers/leaves and stamped a sentiment. These were all added with Mutipurpose Glue and the ribbon with a Glue Dot. Oops, I just realised that one of the Irridescent Rhinestone Jewels has fallen off the larger flower.

On the inside, I added a white panel and simply glued the heart to the centre which was the piece that cut out in the first run through the die cutting & embossing machine.

This next card is just simply embossed and die cut and then I placed a piece of the Abstract Beauty Specialty DSP behind the heart. Then I mount this onto a piece of Blushing Bride card. I added a small piece of white ribbon from the top of the heart snd up over the top of the card and adhered it behind before gluing onto the Thick Basic White card base.

I tied a bow with the same ribbon and adhered it with a glue dot. Basic Rhinestone Jewels were the last to be added to finish it off with a bit of bling! The inside was decorated the same as the previous card. I deliberately left a sentiment off this card, as it could be used for so many different occasions from Wedding, Anniversary, Birthday to Mother’s Day!

Mossy Meadow Blog Hop: Daffodil Daydream

CCS Logo 2021-22

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.

Week 30 – Mossy Meadow

Tonight as we enter the new 2022 year, we are returning to continue our Stampin’ Up! colours with Mossy Meadow.  As the new January – June Mini Catalogue and Sale-a-bration began yesterday, this Daffodil Daydream Bundle is one that will surely be popular!

My card base is Basic White with a layer of the Abstract Beauty 4″ x 6″ DSP, then a layer of the Vellum Layering Designs that come in 12″ x 12″ sheets. The daffodil image is placed in the Stamparatus and I used my Stampin’ Write Markers (Daffodil Delight & Mossy Meadow) direct to the red rubber image. You can repeat this process to get the desired colour and if you have missed any section of the image. To colour the centre of the image, I used the Wink of Stella with Mossy Meadow ink for the leaves and Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie Blends Combo packs for the flowers.

The image is die cut using the coordinating dies and popped up on Dimensionals. I die cut a smal butterfly in Mossy Meadow card and lifted the wings with my fingers so it looks as though it is fluttering. A Gold Shimmer Ribbon bow is added with Tombo Multipurpose glue.

On the inside, I simply added the small offcut of DSP from the front layer. I just love how this Abstract Beauty 4″ x 6″ DSP is almost the perfect size for our card layers!
