Art with Heart Blog Hop: Retiring Products 2018

Dear Crafters,

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring products from the last chance products list. There are lots of products to choose from with retiring stamp sets, inkpads and ink refills guaranteed to be available until 7 May (and all other products while supplies last). Contact anyone on the blog hop to place your last chance order today.
If you’re already hopping, then you just came to me from the lovely, Monika. If you’re just joining, great! Use the “next” button at the end of my post to hop all the way around. Blog Hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post there is a link to the next one. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links.

Now let’s get started!

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing our favourite retiring products and mine is definitely the Watercolour Wings stamp set and coordinating dies, Bold Butterfly framelits & Butterflies thinlits.

I have also used 3 of my favourite retiring colours; Island Indigo, Pink Pirouette, Rose Red, and I will miss them, however there are some new stunning colours to replace them. Yay!

The 1/8″ metallic gold ribbon is also retiring, so make sure you get some of that added to your shopping cart. I have used it on the Rose Red card above in horizontal stripes. I also added Versamark ink to the centre of the butterfly as well as sponged it around the edges of the Rose Red card, added some Gold embossing powder and heat set it for added shine. I used my Fine Tip glue pen to add to the dots on the butterfly, gold embossing powder and heat set!

My next card uses the same products but I have teamed it up with the stunning Painted with Love DSP which will also retire on 31st May. It has this amazing gold through it. This card is a pop through card, where the butterfly slides through the slit when you open it!

Springtime Foils with Pop Up Gold Butterfly

Dear Crafters,

Today I share another card that we made on Saturday at my class. This one uses the absolutely stunning Springtime Foil Specialty Designer Series Paper, one of the second release items in the Sale-a-bration brochure. You can earn it for free with any $90+ order!

Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper
* 12 sheets: 3 each of 4 single-sided designs 
* In 3 colors: Gold foil, Rose Gold foil, Silver foil
* 12″ x 12″ (30.5 x 30.5 cm)
* Acid free & Lignin free

I was inspired by Terri Gaines, a SU demonstrator in the USA who shared a video of this card and I fell in love with it straight away. It really showcases this DSP beautifully and who doesn’t love a gold butterfly, right?!!! What I also love about these papers, apart from the metallic shine, is that it is so thick; you can cut it to size, fold it in half and use it as your card base!

I used the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets and applied it to the back of the gold foil sheet before die cutting the intricate butterfly. I also cut 2 solid butterflies from the Bold Butterflies framelits dies in Whisper White card. Score each of the butterflies down the centre and fold them in half. Watch Terri’s video to see how to put it all together. It’s much easier than trying to put it down in writing!

When you open the card, the butterfly pops through the slot and is actually adhered to the inside of the card!

Here it is opening:

and the card fully open:

I have used a sentiment from the Cake Soiree stamp set and inked it with Smoky Slate ink. I can see myself recreating this card using many different items to pop through the slot!

So feminine

Love Blossoms DSP #stampinup

Dear Crafters,

Today I share some more pretty in pink to end the week, but I promise next week, I’ll try and incorporate something more masculine lol

Can you tell that I love this Designer Paper Series Stack, Love Blossoms? I think it is just stunning and so utterly feminine.

How beautiful is this butterfly which was created using the Bold Butterfly Framelits and Butterflies Thinlits. The bottom layer is vellum, then blushing bride, then rose red and finished with a gorgeous Iced Rhinestone Embellishment.

Super duper pretty if you ask me!
