Some Wink of Stella is added to the party hat and eyes of the owl. Polished Pink In Color Jewels were added for more sparkle. The Basic White insert is stamped with Polished Pink ink and a narrow strip of DSP added across the bottom.

My next card also uses the Adorable Owls along with the Dainty Delight Bundle. The Basic Border Dies were used the cut the edge of the front of the card, before dry embossing it with the Pretty Flowers Embossing folder.

I die cut the Polished Pink flowers and the Gold Foil centres and the leaves. Two of these were cut and joined together to create the wreath effect. The flowers are popped up on Mini Dimensionals. The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink, White Emboss Powder added and melted using the Heat Tool. Then it was die cut using the banner die from the Stylish Shapes dies. This was also added on Dimensionals. The owl is stamped and fussy cut using Paper Snips and coloured using Stampin’ Blends Markers; Pool Party (Dark), Pale Papaya (Dark), SU500, SU600 & SU700. Some of the Fine Tip Glue was added to the eyes for extra shine!

Seaside Bay and Adorable Owls

2022-23 CCBH Logo

Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining  the Colour Creations Blog Hop to bring you creative inspiration showcasing our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours in alphabetical order.

Week 34 – Pacific Point

Tomorrow the excitement continues with the release of the new January – April Mini catalogue and Sale•a•bration (5 Jan-28 Feb), where you earn free product with every $90 that you spend! Do you have a list of products that you have your eyes on? Tonight, I’ll share a suite that I fell in love with straight away when I saw this new catalogue we received at our event in Sydney in mid-November.

The By The Bay Suite has a Seaside Bay stamp set & dies bundle, Balmy Blue & White Ribbon, Flat Adhesive Backed Pearls embellishments and some stunning By the Bay SDSP with gold foiling and Pearl Coating on it!

My card tonight, I’m using the designer papers and the Seaside Bay Bundle.

By the Bay SDSP 2023

I started with a Pacific Point 29cm x 10.5cm card base, folded in half at 14.5cm. I cut 3 strips of different papers that measure 14cm x 3cm and glued them to the card front.

I die cut the shell twice in Gold Foil and glued them together. The sentiment is stamped on Basic White card and a banner cut on the left using Paper Snips, before sponging Pacific Point ink around the edges with a sponge dauber. This was glued to the card and the shell on top with a Flat Adhesive-backed Pearl added.

On the inside, I added a Basic White card insert, sponged the edges and added an offcut of the DSP and some Pacific Point card to the bottom edge, along with a couple of smaller Gold Foil shells.

Fitting Florets meets Adorable Owls

Happy New Year everyone. I hope you have recovered from the festive season and are looking forward to a big 2023! With the excitement looming with the release of the new January – April Mini catalogue and Sale•a•bration (5 Jan-28 Feb) on 5 January, I thought I’d pop by and share some cute cards I’ve made using the Adorable Owls stamp set (Level 1 SAB offering).

The images are stamped in Black Memento ink on Basic White card and coloured with Pool Party, Pale Papaya, Light SU900 & Medium SU500 Combo Blends Markers. They are die cut with the Layering Circles Framelits dies and the scallop circle layer is cut in card.

The Fitting Florets DSP which I’ve used in the background, will be retiring tomorrow, so if you need it (like I did), you’ll need to get moving and place your order 😆  I adore this particular sheet with the Night of Navy and Polished Pink design. I cut a Basic White layer slightly smaller than the card front, then the DSP slightly smaller again. I cut 4cm off the bottom of the DSP and flipped it over to have the reverse pattern showing. Glue these to the white layer then wrap a piece of Polished Pink Open Weave Ribbon around and across where the DSP joins. Now it can be glued to the card base.
