CCS Garden Green – Birthday Wreath with a pop of colour

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 17 – Garden Green

Yes, I know, another wreath card… but you know what, I just love them and they are so easy and effective. The only stamping is the sentiment.

The flowers are die cut in Magenta Madness and Highland Heather and each has a small rhinestone in the centre. The Magenta Bow just adds that extra touch for a wreath. I love how this wreath sits on the Brick & Mortar embossed background, as though it’s hanging on a wall.

The wreath has 3 layers; bottom layer is Soft Sea Foam, the middle is the same DSP as the background and the top layer is Garden Green. The middle layer was cut from the centre of the background layer so not the waste this gorgeous paper and the hole is covered up with the White Bricks layer anyway! I glued the bottom layer direct to the white bricks. The top two layers are glue together but then these are popped up on mini dimensionals to give it some height.

Arrange a Wreath Slimline Bridge Fold Card

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Tonight’s Stampin’ Up! colour is Crushed Curry and I have a fun fancy fold fold card to share with you in the slimline format that is very popular right now. This card fits into a DL envelope for posting!

I must admit, I was really happy with how this card turned out and I like the Crushed Curry, but I don’t usually go to this particular shade for my first choice of yellow. The Garden Green wreaths are glued to the side panels, as is is the sentiment. There is a panel of White White behind the bridge in the background and this is stamped with another image from the Arrange a Wreath stamp set before being glued in place.

The flowers are stamped in Crushed Curry ink and then I used the fine tip end of my Stampin’ Write Marker to add the details. Some Wink of Stella is added to the centre of each flower and then I die cut them all before adhering to the card.

Using the Stamparatus, I was able to stamp the sentiment easily and get the dark depth of colour I wanted by stamping multiple times and lining it up perfectly. I inked the entire sentiment with Crushed Curry, then used my Marker to colour the “happy birthday”. 

Adding some Champagne Rhinestones adds some sparkle!

Colour Creations Showcase – Cajun Craze

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Tonight’s Stampin’ Up! colour is Cajun Craze, a real deep rusty brown colour!

I will admit it right now, it is my least favourite colour in the Stampin’ Up! range, but when used in small doses, it can be effective!

Tonight’s card features Cajun Craze, Pool Party and Whisper White.

The Pool Party card base is embossed with the Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder. The next layer is die cut with the Ornate Layers Dies and white layer is cut with the Stitched Rectangle dies.

The wreath stamp is inked up with Cajun Craze ink and I stamped this onto scrap paper before onto my card layer. This is called stamping off or 2nd generation stamping. The full colour was just too dark for what I was wanting.

To create the die cut wreath, I first took a clear block, placed some Cajun Craze ink on it and a drop of Frost White Shimmer Paint. Using the Water Painter, add some water and mix the ink & paint together and brush it across a piece of white card. Once dry, cut the wreath and glue it on top of the stamped wreath. Cut the edges off from around the overhanging edges. Glue the white layer to the Pool Party layer and add the sentiment in 2nd generation stamping. These layers are added to the card base with dimensionals.

Die cut the small and large flowers and glue them to the front and inside card. Place a  Champagne Rhinestone in the centre of each flower and add a pretty Pool Party Sheer ribbon bow.

Some Wink of Stella is added to the flowers on the front of the card and also to the sentiment.

Arrange a Wreath this Christmas

Can you believe it is July already? Where has this year gone?!

Tonight you may not quite be ready for what I am about to share with you, but I have my first Christmas card!

I know it is always a panic towards the end of the year, to be ready for Christmas, as it comes around so fast when we are super busy. I start in July and make one or two cards a week, so by the time 1 December comes, I have a nice little stash of cards to send out in the post.

Anyway here goes!

I  using the Arrange a Wreath Bundle from the 2020-21 Annual catalogue and it’s a beauty. I have created a square card with a layer of the new In Color, Just Jade textured with the Greenery embossing folder, love it. Then a layer of designer paper from the Flowers for Every Season paper pack.

Christmas card using Arrange a Wreath in Just Jade by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2020

The wreath is die cut in Just Jade and the flowers in Poppy Parade to coordinate with the designer paper. The signage is stamped in Crumb Cake ink and the sentiment in Black ink. I attached some Linen Thread so it is hanging from the wreath and added a little bow at the top. These die cut elements are added with dimensionals for that real wreath effect.

Colour Creations Showcase – Blushing Bride

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Tonight’s Stampin’ Up! colour is Blushing Bride!

Oh how I love this Arrange a Wreath Bundle 🤍 and especially with this colour combination of Blushing Bride, Magenta Madness and Whisper White.

Blushing Bride Magenta Madness Whisper White

White card base: 12.5cm x 25cm, scored at 12.5cm
Blushing Bride Layer: 11.5cm x 11.5cm, embossed with the Greenery Embossing folder

The 3 x wreaths are die cut in each of the coloured cardstock. The Magenta Madness and White wreaths are glued together and the Blushing Bride wreath is added on top with mini dimensionals. Add some Wink of Stella to the Blushing Bridge wreath.

Stamp 8 x hearts in Magenta Madness ink and die cut them out. These are added with mini dimensionals and a ribbon bow added with Multipurpose glue.  

The sentiment is stamped onto white card and cut using the Everyday Label Punch and added to the centre with dimensionals. Are you wondering why the punched piece doesn’t look like the punch shape? Well, I needed a smaller shape but I liked the shape of the side of this punch, so when placing the sentiment into the punch, I punched it closer to the top of the sentiment, then turned it around and put it back into the punch from the inside and slid it in until I was happy with the position and punch!!! Tada!!!
