Bottled Happiness Fancy Fold

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 9 – Blackberry Bliss

Tonight’s Fancy Fold card colours was inspired by the Awash in Beauty DSP. Using the stamp set, Bottled Happiness, the leaves are stamped in Mossy Meadow, the flowers in Calypso Coral and I used a sponge dauber to add some Blackberry Bliss ink to a few flowers before pressing the Stamparatus to the card.

The Vintage Bottle Punch was used to cut the vase with Blackberry Bliss card. I found it was too big so I placed it back in the punch and took more off the bottom. It was still too big, so I repeated that step again and it was just right (sounds like a Goldilocks story, LOL)!

Christmas

Bright & Beautiful Stars

Hello Crafters,

Today I share with you a card that can be used for so many occasions, from Christmas to Birthdays, masculine or feminine!

Stars are amazing and look so good in nearly any colour. So here I made a card using the new Star Framelits and the coordinating Bright and Beautiful Stamp Set.

Bright & Beautiful Stars

I made the card base in white cardstock, but folding a piece in half and placing the die on top, but ensuring the point on the fold line sits off the card. This will ensure you get the fold of the card when you run it through the Big Shot machine.

Once you have your card base cut, die cut the same size framelit with gold foil sheet and adhere it to the white card.

I stamped the two large stars from the Bright & Beautiful Stamp set on Blackberry Bliss cardstock using Versamark ink, then embossing with gold embossing powder. Wow does it shine!

Die cut these two stars with the coordinating framelits, and cut a second gold foil star in the smaller size.

Adhere them with dimensionals as shown.

I finished it off with some rhinestones, just to add a little bling!

Bloom with Hope

Hello Crafters,

Today I have found myself needing to craft after two weeks off work and it being school holidays, where I have spent loads of time with my gorgeous girls!

But now they are back to school, I needed a kick start, so I begin with a challenge at Just Add Ink. The challenge this week is a Sketch Challenge JAI#223.

I am also using 2 of the new 2014-2016 In Colours; Blackberry Bliss & Tangelo Twist. I wasn’t sure if they would work together, but I was surprised and I think they actually work well.

Loads of new product is used in this card, from the ribbon, stamp set, DSP and cardstock. I think the only things that are not new are the circle framelits and the Honeycomb Embossing Folder!

Bloom with Hope

The Bloom with Hope Stamp Set is one of the many Hostess Sets available in this new annual catalogue and it is just beautiful.

I used the Shaving Cream technique to create the background colours of the flowers, then stamped the images and fussy cut.

If you have realised by now, I love dimension on my cards, so I used dimensionals to add the blooms to my card!

Why don’t you give a challenge a go, they are so much fun. Head across to the Just Add Ink page for more inspiration and see how the designers interpreted this challenge.
