Colour Creations: Cajun Craze and Animal Outings

Hello Crafters,

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Cajun Craze!!!

You may not have seen a lot of this colour on my projects, as I am not a big fan of the colour, but I think it works well for this lovable big ‘Red Kangaroo’, a true colour of the worlds largest mammal and Australia’s biggest marsupial!

I used the Nature’s Poem DSP and did my own fancy fold that I sure am loving using with the different DSPs. Instructions & measurements can be found here!

Colour Creations: Around the Corner with Blackberry Bliss

Hello Crafters,

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. This week we are featuring a returning colour, Blackberry Bliss!!!

How pretty are these Delicate Lace Edgelits dies?!!! I have die cut them in Blackberry Bliss card stock and glued them to the front of the Balmy Blue card. Next I stamped the sentiment from the Around the Corner stamp set.

The Animal Outings bundle is so Australian with its choice of animals, but today I’m using the cute little rhino. Those lace edgelits remind me of the skin of the rhino so I felt it appropriate to stamp it and cut it with the coordinating Animal Friends thinlits. Loving that there are coordinating thinlits for this stamp set.

I coloured the rhino and the little bird with Stampin’ Blends Markers, then added it with an action/wobble accessory… it’s like a spring and it makes him move. These are very easy to make by punching 2 small circles of card stock and wrapping some thin craft wire around a pen/marker 3 or 4 times. Remove the wire from the pen, cut the wire from the roll and using some tape, add each end of your coil to a circle. Place the action wobble behind your rhino with some glue and add it to your card.

Don’t forget to stamp the inside of the card too. Here is have used the sentiments from Around the Corner, perfect detail for a birthday card.

Blog Hop: Casing the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue with Animal Outings

Dear Crafters,

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects CASED from the annual catalogue. If you would like a copy of the 2018 – 2019 annual catalogue, contact any of the girls on the blog hop and we will get in touch with you.

If you’re already hopping, then you just came to me from the lovely, Kathryn Ruddick. If you’re just joining, great! Use the “next” button at the end of my post to hop all the way around. Blog Hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post there is a link to the next one. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links.

Now let’s get started!

At OnStage in April, we got the Animal Outings stamp set in our bags when we arrived and I couldn’t have been more pleased. I think everyone who attended the event were super excited that we had some Aussie animal friend images.

The other great news once we got our hands on the catalogue, was that there are coordinating framelits so we don’t have to fussy cut each of the images, super exciting! So when 1st June came around, those framelits were first on my order.

I have cased my cards from page 26 of the catalogue.

The base card is the new Granny Apple Green with the leaves die cut in Shaded Spruce. The banners are from the Nature’s Poem DSP and that small scallop edge is Blackberry Bliss (a returning colour) cut with the Decorative Ribbon Border punch. I coloured the kangaroo & koala with Stampin’ Blends and popped it up on dimensionals.

See that little Blackberry Bliss heart? It was actually an extra piece left over when the rhino was die cut and I trimmed it slightly. The sentiment was stamped in Soft Suede ink.

My next card uses the cute giraffe, again coloured with Stampin’ Blends. I’ve used So Saffron as my card base so the giraffe would stand out more. I’ve also used Crumb Cake and Soft Sea Foam.  I love this die cut background.

The sentiment was stamped on Whisper White and cut out with the Tailored Tag punch. The branches were coloured with a Blender Pen and inkpads and added with Tombo multipurpose glue.

This last card is cased from page 48 of the catalogue (below) and it is my favourite.

I wanted to make it sweet and feminine, so I have used some of the Petal Promenade DSP and a Pearlised Doilie to soften the tone along with lots of different embellishments.

I stamped the rhino image repeatedly across the background of the new colour, Gray Granite, card base in the coordinating ink pad. A banner of the Petal Promenade DSP was glued down over the doilie, then a thin banner of Silver Glimmer paper. The rhino is added with dimensionals.

The Share What You Love Artisan Pearls, White Dotted Tulle and a White Baker’s Twine bow finish it off nicely.
