Creative Showcase Sketch

AWHT Creative Showcase

Welcome to the May Art With Heart Creative Showcase. This month the Art With Heart Team have amazing projects to share with you that have been inspired by the card sketch below. The sketch is to be used as a starting point and has been interpreted in many creative ways by the Art With Heart Team.

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase May 2020 Sketch

Now let’s get started!

Today’s card uses the Ornate Garden Suite and the Peaceful Poppies Suite of
Products, all which will still be available in the new Annual catalogue starting 3 June!

Olive Balmy Navy White Flirty

The front of the Balmy Blue card base is embossed with the Subtle 3D embossing folder, before a layer of Old Olive card, die cut with the Ornate Layers dies. A Piece of DSP is added, long with other elements you can see.

This centre feature is the ornate style stamp set image stamped onto some Sparkle Glimmer Paper and die cut in a circle. I’ve coloured the image, gently in a dabbing motion so as not to ruin them, with Stampin’ Blends Markers. How pretty does it look?!!

On the inside I have the same image stamped on Whisper White card stock, coloured the same way and fussy cut. This is glued to the Champagne Foil Sheet, die cut with the gorgeous Ornate Layers dies. The Navy card is embossed with the new Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder.

But then you open it again to reveal the inside of the card!

How did I do that? The card consists of 2 standard card bases, but the Navy one is flipped over and opens in the opposite direction and is glued behind the Balmy Blue card base!

Monochrome Creative Showcase

AWHT Creative Showcase

Welcome to the March Creative Showcase with the Art With Heart Team!

This month we are featuring Monochromatic cards, that is cards that only use different shades of the same colour. This is a great opportunity for us to demonstrate the wonderful range of Stampin’ Up! colours across our inks, papers and embellishments that can be combined to produce the amazing monochromatic samples we have to share with you.

Now let’s get started!

My first project is a masculine card predominantly using the Waterfront stamp set and Night of Navy and White. The sentiment is from the Birthday Goodness stamp set.

My next card is a sneak peek at some new product coming soon for my feminine Rococo Rose Monochrome card. This is the Ornate Style stamp set, Ornate Border Dies & Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder. (All these items will be available in the upcoming Annual catalogue in June, or now if you wish to join and add them to your starter kit).

Emboss the Rococo Rose card base with the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder. Die cut the border die in the same colour card once, then line it up on the opposite side to achieve the strip of fancy border.

Stamp the floral image in Versamark ink onto whisper white card, added clear emboss powder and heat set it. Then I used a sponge dauber and roughly inked the entire image, before fussy cutting.

Using the Rococo Rose Light & Dark Stampin’ Blends Markers, colour the image. I also used the Light marker to outline the entire image. I used the dark maker to colour the rhinestones and the Whisper White Ribbon.

On the inside, I used the Ornate Border die to create that floral die cut down the right side. The rhinestones are the perfect size to sit in the centre of the flower. The sentiment is stamped using the Family Party Stamp set.

Masculine Creative Showcase with the Art with Heart Team

AWHT Creative Showcase Masculine

Welcome to our new Monthly Creative Showcase with the Art With Heart Team!

This month we are featuring Masculine themed projects. We have many masculine themed products in the Stampin’ Up! range including Stamp Sets and coordinating Dies, Designer Series Papers, Embellishments and Embossing Folders. The Art With Heart Team have a wonderful selection of projects to inspire you to create Masculine Masterpieces.

Now let’s get started!

This set of cards were very quick to create and I shared this style with my class ladies to help them cut into their Designer Series Papers. Starting with a simple card base, then cut one piece of DSP slightly smaller (5mm). Take the DSP and cut about a third off the bottom, then flip that piece over to the reverse design. Glue these to your card then add a strip of Tear & Tape across the join. Add some of the Braided Burlap Trim. Punch some 2″ Circles and stamp a sentiment and add a trinket with a glue dot!

This is a wonderful way to use your pretty DSPs without covering too much of the pattern with other elements. You can whip up a whole bunch of these in minutes.

My next project is a pop up box card or some call it a Card in a Box, but I wanted a longer length than usual. I needed it to be a landscape style for my golf scene, and it still fits into a C6 envelope!

Did you know that the golf ball can be cut out using your 1″ circle punch?!! Yep, it’s the perfect fit!!!

I stamped the entire image in Garden Green and die cut it out, then stamped the image again in Smoky Slate. Instead of die cutting, punch the golf ball and glue it to the die cut!

I also glued some of the grass die cuts in front and some behind the centre section for more depth. How cool are these wooden elements too?!

The back of the card is where you write your message and I have decorated it with some more of the DSP and a sentiment.

A tip: when gluing in the golfer, it is best to place your card on top of your envelope to ensure that all the images fit within the size of the envelope!
