Masculine card: Aspen Trees

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 18 – Early Espresso

Today is the final day of Sale•a•bration for 2022.

The largest die from the Aspen Trees dies is used to cut the Early Espresso card front. Behind this, I glued a piece of the 2022-2024 In Color Glimmer Paper. I stamped the dots/speckles in the same colour ink around the edges of the card front.

The sentiment from the Charming Sentiments Bundle is stamped in Versamark ink, White Emboss Powder added and heat set, before using the coordinating die to cut it out. This was added with Black Mini Dimensionals. I die cut two leaves in the Distressed Gold Specialty Paper, and one in Early Espresso card and these are adhered with glue. A small piece of Linen Thread is added behind the sentiment. To finish off I added some Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots.

On the inside, I placed a Basic White card insert and repeated the dots/speckles around the edge, but I stamped off before onto the white card, so it toned it down. I placed two more of the leaves to the bottom corner.

HOC Week 4 – Sneak Peek of Christmas Season

Heart of Christmas Blog Header 2021

Each Monday evening until mid-December, I am taking part in the Heart of Christmas blog hop showcasing our amazing range of holiday products from the Annual and July-December Mini catalogues. Please hop along and enjoy some fabulous inspiration from our talented team!

Tonight I am using some of the products from the Painted Christmas Suite.

Painted Christmas DSP JD21

The Christmas Season Bundle will no doubt be a popular bundle this year. With its holly, berries and pinecones, it suits all crafters worldwide. Underneath the Designer Paper on this card, I am using the pre-printed Gingerbread & Peppermint Memories & More Cards and Envelopes again for a quick and easy start to this card.

Christmas Season Bundle, Stampin Up 2021 by Kate Morgan, Australia

The Painted Christmas 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper is cut with the Stitched So Sweetly dies for the bottom layer. The holly are stamped in Garden Green ink, the leaves are Pear Pizzazz ink and the berries are Real Red ink. The other leaves are stamped in Versamark ink, Heat & Stick Powder added and heat set with the Heat Tool, then Gilded Leafing added and gently rubbed with a sponge dauber to remove the excess. Doesn’t it add a gorgeous touch of elegance?!!

Some Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots were added to finish it off. The sentiment for this card is from the new Peaceful Deer stamp set.
