Christmas, Designer Series Paper, Handmade Cards, Stampin' Up!

Traditional Christmas card to Cherish the Season

Today’s Christmas card is an easy one to create and make multiples of during the silly season!

The card base is Thick Whisper White (although you cannot see it) as I have placed a piece of Gold Foil over the entire card front. The Plaid Tidings DSP is the next layer, a lovely piece for Christmas. This Designer Paper pack is on sale for the month of October saving you 15%, so make sure you add it to your next order!

I have stamped these bells in Versamark Ink onto Cherry Cobbler card, added Gold Emboss Powder and heat set it. The same process for the sentiment, although I fussy cut this one. I die cut the Cherry Cobbler card with the Nested Stitched Labels dies and cut one end off before adhering to the card.

The foliage is die cut from Just Jade card and glued above the bells. I tied some of the gold thread in a bow and added this at the very end with glue to allow it to dry. I find that the Multipurpose Glue is the strongest adhesive to hold this thread.

Scenes under the Sea

Here is another Whale of a Time Suite card which is very simple, just adding a couple of elements.

My card base is Balmy Blue with a piece of the designer paper creating the backdrop. This paper pack is on sale for the month of October saving you 15%, so make sure you add it to your next order!

The whale is punched from another sheet of DSP with the Whale Builder Punch and popped up on dimensionals.

The Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper is added above the whale spout and also some of the seaweed at the bottom. It just reminds me of looking down into a clear blue ocean with the element of shine and sparkle the water gives. I used the Forever Flourishing dies for these – who would have thought!!

This is such a simple card but this DSP creates the scene for you!

CCS – Gorgeous Grape creates beautiful Lavender

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

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Week 18 – Gorgeous Grape

This week I thought that Gorgeous Grape reminded me of lavender so I decided that this lovely lady was walking through a field of lavender.

I sponged the background starting at the top with Pool Party and Pear Pizzazz towards the bottom for the grass, leaving it softer in the centre.

Then I placed a drop of Frost White Shimmer Paint onto a Clear Block and using the Water Painter, added some water and gently flicked it over the card. You can see the paint splatters. I didn’t want to colour her dress, but I did use the left over paint on the Water Painter to add some shine to her white dress.

Next I stamped the images in Black Stazon Ink. The flowers are coloured using a Blender Pen with the Gorgeous Grape Inkpad. The lady image is cut out and her hair and arms are coloured with Ivory and Bronze Stampin’ Blends. She is popped up on dimensionals. This layer is matted onto Gorgeous Grape card and placed in the centre of the square white card base.

Isn’t it such a peaceful and inviting scene? What we wouldn’t give to be out of isolation, walking through a field of flowers!!!

Oh, and don’t forget to stamp the inside of the card and the envelope!

Cherish the Season meets Trimming the Town

Today’s Christmas card is another Bridge Fold card that will fold flat to fit into a C6 envelope!

These bells are super pretty when cut in Silver Foil and hanging from the top of the card with some of the green foliage. These are actually glued to the front of the window sheet to show the Designer Paper behind.

The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set and I used the Stamparatus so I could ink the image multiple times to achieve a nice dark colour. The Rectangle Stitched dies were used to cut it out.

I die cut the bells a second time in Old Olive card and replaced the holly inlaid in the bells. The red strip across the bells is Poppy Parade cardstock.

Measurements
Card base: 15cm x 14.8cm, score (landscape) at 2.5cm, 4.5cm, 10.5cm, 12.5cm
DSP: 2.2cm x 14.8cm (2 pieces), 6cm x 14.8cm
Window Sheet: 9cm x 14.8cm

Whale of a Time with the cutest backdrop

Whale of a Time Suite

I love how these designer papers add such a wow to a card, with very little extras needed. This gorgeous piece with the sea horses makes a super cute backdrop for this whale card.

Adding some seaweed die cut from the Smooth Sailing dies, which coordinate beautifully with this suite. The cardstock is Blackberry Bliss, Granny Apple Green & Shaded Spruce.

My card base is Pretty Peacock, as is the 2¼” circle punch, embossed with the Seabed 3D embossing folder and popped up on dimensionals.

The whale is actually punched from another piece of the designer paper using the Whale Builder Punch, also adhered with dimensionals. I just love that these papers have images that can be cut with the coordinating punch!

The blue adhesive backed gems are added randomly for a little sparkle!

CCS Garden Green – Birthday Wreath with a pop of colour

Week 17 – Garden Green

Yes, I know, another wreath card… but you know what, I just love them and they are so easy and effective. The only stamping is the sentiment.

The flowers are die cut in Magenta Madness and Highland Heather and each has a small rhinestone in the centre. The Magenta Bow just adds that extra touch for a wreath. I love how this wreath sits on the Brick & Mortar embossed background, as though it’s hanging on a wall.

The wreath has 3 layers; bottom layer is Soft Sea Foam, the middle is the same DSP as the background and the top layer is Garden Green. The middle layer was cut from the centre of the background layer so not the waste this gorgeous paper and the hole is covered up with the White Bricks layer anyway! I glued the bottom layer direct to the white bricks. The top two layers are glue together but then these are popped up on mini dimensionals to give it some height.

2020 August-December Mini Catalogue

Tonight I have a fun fancy fold card. It is a landscape bridge fold design but in the slimline style, which is all the rage right now. I love this Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper. You may remember it from last year, as it was part of the Brightly Gleaming Suite and it was super popular so it stayed, yay!!!

The only stamping is the two holly leaves which were fussy cut and coloured with the Wink of Stella to pick up a little of the wet Mossy Meadow ink.

The letters are die cut in Pretty Peacock card and added to the sheet of acetate which covers the front of the card with Stampin’ Seal. I then added Fine Tip Glue to the holly berries and each of the letters for that lustrous shine! A couple of Star Designer Elements are added either side of the Merry.

This card folds flat to fit into a standard DL Business Size envelope!

Measurements:
Card Base: 8¼” x 5½” score short edge at 1”, 1¾”, 3¾”, 4½”
DSP: 8¼” x ⅞” (2) and 8¼” x 1⅞”
Window Sheet: 8¼” x 3¾”

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

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Week 16 – Flirty Flamingo

This is such a pretty colour combination for tonight’s card using the Forever Fern Bundle in a wreath style card.

The leaf images are stamped 6 times in each colour on whisper white card and die cut. I arranged them in a wreath and popped them up on dimenionals for some added height. The sentiment is stamped and die cut and has a double layer of dimensionals under it, so it sits up higher than the wreath.

The white layer the wreath sits on, is embossed with the Dainty Diamonds 3D embossing folder for some added interest.

On the inside, I placed two extra stamped/die cut leaf images in each colour and a small strip of DSP that was left over from another project.

Measurements:

Whisper White card base: 12.5cm x 25cm, folded in half
Flirty Flamingo: 10.5cm x 10.5cm
Gorgeous Grape: 9.4cm x 9.4cm
Whisper White: 9cm x 9cm

Christmas, Handmade Cards, Stampin' Up!

Cherish the Season SITR

Christmas is definitely going to be a different Christmas this year. With the pandemic causing chaos, we are still not out of Stage 4 isolation here in Melbourne. Luckily the weather was rather cold, windy and raining for much of the weekend, so it kept us indoors. Thankfully I have lots of hobbies to keep me occupied 😉

This card uses the Stamparatus and the Cherish the Season stamp set in this lovely combination of colour.

I set up the largest of the bells in the Stamparatus, stamped it once in Gray Granite, before rotating the 4″ x 4″ card 90 degrees and stamping it again, continuing this process of stamping in the round (SITR). Then I added the smaller bell and repeated the process.

Once the stamping was complete, I used the Wink of Stella to colour all the bells (unfortunately the photos don’t show the amazing glimmer it gives). Then I added some colour with Gray Granite and Merry Merlot, picking up some colour from the inkpad using the Wink of Stella.

The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink, white emboss powder added and then heat set. It was cut out using the Rectangle Stitched dies. The tiny bell is die cut in Silver Foil and added with a dimensionals and a little white twine bow added.

The mat layer of Merry Merlot card was embossed with the Scripty 3D embossing folder before being glued to the card base and the centre layer glued on top.

Monthly Creative Showcase: Masculine Theme

Tonight’s card is a fancy fold Cube Card that is so popular right now. You can find instructions all over the internet to create these.

Masculine Cube Card using Stampin Ups World of Good Suite by Kate Morgan Australia 2020

I have kept mine fairly simple and straight forward with the decorating. The World of Good Specialty DSP has the gorgeous Gold Foil through it, so I didn’t want to go covering it up with loads of embellishments.
