Colour Creations: Cherry Cobbler

Hello Crafters,

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Cherry Cobbler!!!

I am using this colour combination with the Cake Soiree stamp set and coordinating dies.

I Gold Embossed the cake and the edges of the Gorgeous Grape layer.

The sentiment on top of the cake is also embossed, but with White Embossing Powder. The photo doesn’t do the cake justice, because the gold embossing looks very dull, when in fact it is quite shiny. I used watercolour pencils to colour the flowers in the 3 coordinating colours and the white pencil to add some highlight. The flowers on the top of the cake were stamped in full colour and stamped off once for the lighter shade.

Dream Catcher card using Mini Embroidery Hoops

Dear Crafters,

Well, I’m back from OnStage in Sydney and boy, what an exciting catalogue is coming our way in June! You are going to love it and there are so many awesome new products, I don’t know what will be at the top of my shopping list, I want it all 🙂

Today I have a card for a friend who loves Dream Catchers and I had a couple of these Embroidery Hoops that I bought because they were cute but I didn’t know how to use them! Have you done that? Bought something and then struggle to use it?

I know the doily and the baker’s twine have retired, but I need to start using up some of these products before they retire next time. I keep buying and storing product away for a special card, but I need to stop and use them now…. lol

I cut the doily down to fit the mini embroidery hoop, as it was much bigger and then I added strands of baker’s twine and one of the cute tassels from the Sweet Soiree Embellishment Kit (Occasions 2018 catalogue).

Shaker card using Mini Embroidery Hoops

Dear Crafters,

Today’s card uses the mini embroidery hoops that are in the Occasions catalogue on page 14. To be honest, I really didn’t know what to do with them, but they were so cute I bought them anyway. I decided to make mine into a shaker card!

I used the larger of the two embroidery hoops and glued a circle of window sheet to the front. In the meantime I continued putting together the rest of the card. Once the hoop was dry, I was able to add the sequins in a little pile behind and glue the hoop over the top onto the card.

Don’t you love that new embossing folder? It is the Basket Weave dynamic TIEF which is one of the 2nd release Saleabration items, but it will be carrying over into the new Annual catalogue in June!

Celebrate with Cake Soiree

Dear Crafters,

Today I share the 3rd card we made at my class last Saturday using the Cake Soiree Bundle & Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper. Because we had some late cancellations, we ended up with a smaller class, so for this final card, I allowed the ladies to choose their own Designer Paper pattern and colours. I made this first card and then let them get their creativity on!!!!

this first one was made with an engagement in mind (the DSP is the retired, Bundle of Love Specialty DSP)

The ladies were enjoying colouring using the Blender Pens and ink pads, where I showed them how you can get some great shading and depth with the variation of colour, by adding more when needed.

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!

Springtime Foil SDSP Butterfly Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator, Australia

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!
