Monochrome Creative Showcase

AWHT Creative Showcase

Welcome to the March Creative Showcase with the Art With Heart Team!

This month we are featuring Monochromatic cards, that is cards that only use different shades of the same colour. This is a great opportunity for us to demonstrate the wonderful range of Stampin’ Up! colours across our inks, papers and embellishments that can be combined to produce the amazing monochromatic samples we have to share with you.

Now let’s get started!

My first project is a masculine card predominantly using the Waterfront stamp set and Night of Navy and White. The sentiment is from the Birthday Goodness stamp set.

My next card is a sneak peek at some new product coming soon for my feminine Rococo Rose Monochrome card. This is the Ornate Style stamp set, Ornate Border Dies & Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder. (All these items will be available in the upcoming Annual catalogue in June, or now if you wish to join and add them to your starter kit).

Emboss the Rococo Rose card base with the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder. Die cut the border die in the same colour card once, then line it up on the opposite side to achieve the strip of fancy border.

Stamp the floral image in Versamark ink onto whisper white card, added clear emboss powder and heat set it. Then I used a sponge dauber and roughly inked the entire image, before fussy cutting.

Using the Rococo Rose Light & Dark Stampin’ Blends Markers, colour the image. I also used the Light marker to outline the entire image. I used the dark maker to colour the rhinestones and the Whisper White Ribbon.

On the inside, I used the Ornate Border die to create that floral die cut down the right side. The rhinestones are the perfect size to sit in the centre of the flower. The sentiment is stamped using the Family Party Stamp set.

Birthday Bonanza Shaker card

Do you love a shaker card? Here is a cute one using the Birthday Bonanza DSP and the Birthday Goodness stamp set!

The shaker part of the card is created like a window box so there is no stickiness like when using Foam Adhesive Strips, for the sequins to stick to. This way they move freely inside the box.

I had some star & heart sequins left over from a few years ago so they are not the exact colours as used in the card, however they are a similar but lighter tones, so they work well!

On the inside I stamped the sentiment in Bermuda Bay ink and the cake tower in Grapefruit Grove ink then added a strip of the same DSP as the front of the card. Both of these stamps are from the Birthday Goodness stamp set.

Thoughtful Blooms is Birthday Goodness

How cool does this look for some old and new products in one card?!! The See a Silhouette DSP is super bright but the perfect background for this card. The Thoughtful Blooms stamp set is one of the Level 1 Sale•a•bration items and the Small Bloom punch is a Level 2 Sale•a•bration item.

The flowers are stamped on Shimmery White card stock with Garden Green, Crushed Curry, Poppy Parade and Pacific Point inks. The Crushed Curry Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon was wrapped around the Shimmery White layer and tied in a bow. Notice the notch on the left? I used the petal of the punch to do that!!!

The sentiment on the inside of the card is from the Birthday Goodness stamp set with some more of the flowers stamped in the bottom corner.

Birthday, Handmade Cards, Masculine, Stampin' Up!

Birthday Goodness for a masculine birthday celebration

Tonight I am saying Hi from Sydney!

Yes, I flew here this morning in time for the Stampin’ Up! OnStage Local event tomorrow for demonstrators. I am so excited because my dear friend, Catherine, picked me up from the airport and has invited me to stay with her and her family for two nights 🥰 We are going to have SO MUCH FUN!!!

I’ll share more information about OnStage early next week when I get home, but for now I share the card I made for my husband’s birthday on Wednesday. Let me start by saying I adore this sweet stamp set, Birthday Goodness, however it was best to make a card rather than bake the images for him, although I know he would have loved a stack of donuts!

Look at the gorgeous shimmery glimmer of the icing. This is the Shimmery Crystal Effects added last for that gloriously inviting glaze!!!

The cake stand was coloured using the Wink of Stella and the Delicata Celestial Copper Ink Refill. I did this by dropping 1 small drop of ink refill onto a clear block and by swirling the Wink of Stella through it, I was able to get a lovely soft coppery shine to apply to the stand. Initially I was going to colour the entire stand, but I think just using it as a feature trim and leaving the main part white, gives it more class!, don’t you think?!

The inside is also stamped and coloured in the same colours as the front.
