CCBH Old Olive: Thank You Flowering Tulips

CCS Logo 2021-22

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

Week 32 – Old Olive

Tonight’s card features the Flowering Tulips Bundle [Flowering Tulips stamp set & Tulips dies].

My card base is Old Olive with a layer of Harvest Meadow DSP (oops it’s retired), but you could use any patterned paper. The next layer is some of the new Vellum Layering Designs but I didn’t glue this down until I had the tulips etc adhered on top of it, so I knew where to add my adhesive so it doesn’t show through.

The tulips are die cut with the Simply Marbleous DSP (free item during Saleabration with qualifying order), and the leaves with Old Olive card.

The sentiment is stamped in Old Olive ink onto Basic White card and die cut using the Give It a Whirl dies, and popped up on dimensionals.

Again, I have added my favourite Brushed Brass Butterflies, as they are the perfect embellishment, especially for a garden scene!

I also made a second card using the Count on Me stamp set and the Inspiring Canopy dies to create this pretty scene. The Thick Basic White card base is coloured using Blending Brushes with Old Olive at the base. I die cut the clouds using the Basic Borders dies and used it to create the clouds at the top with Pool Party ink.

The trees were initially die cut in Thick Basic White card, so I had to colour the trunks with the Crumb Cake Blends Combo Pack. The leaves were die cut in Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive and adhered with glue and black dimensionals. The Sun is coloured with Daffodil Delight ink and a Blending Brush before die cutting and adhering with glue.

The koalas are stamped and fussy cut with Paper Snips and coloured using the Watercolour Pencils and Blender Pens. The fox is stamped and coloured using Blender Pens with Cajun Craze ink (a colour I hardly ever used, but is perfect for my fox!).

Night of Navy Blog Hop: Amazing Silhouettes

CCS Logo 2021-22

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

Week 31 – Night of Navy

Tonight I am using the new Amazing Silhouettes Bundle [Amazing Silhouettes stamp set & Amazing Thanks dies].

My card base is Night of Navy with a layer of the Sweet Symmetry DSP from the Annual catalogue. Using the Stamparatus, I inked up the stamp with Pool Party ink and stamped onto Basic White card. I repeated the inking and stamping process to get a slightly darker image. I used a sponge dauber with the same ink around the edges of the white panel.

I took one of the Heart & Home Doilies and cut it in half and placed them either side so they met the edge of the card base with glue, before adding some ribbon and adhering the white panel with dimensionals.

I took the Amazing Thanks die and cut the background in Night of Navy card and the top layer in the Iridescent Pool Party piece of Supple Shimmer Specialty DSP. Glue them together with Multipurpose Glue or use the Adhesive Sheets before die cutting to turn them into a sticker. I like to use glue to allow me a little wriggle room in getting it into place. Doesn’t it look gorgeous and sparkly?!!! Finally, I added some of the Brushed Brass Butterflies, because I adore them and I am using them on so many project, my favourite embellishments and you get 80 in a pack!

On the inside I stamped one of  the smaller images from the set in the bottom right corner.
