Colour Creations Showcase – Misty Moonlight – Origami folding and a simple Triangle Christmas card

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

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.

Week 28 – Misty Moonlight

This is such a gorgeous rich blue and I think my favourite blue tone in the Stampin’ Up! colours. I am naturally drawn to blue, being my favourite colour!

Tonight I have two cards for you – the first being a card that I had a bit of fun learning to fold some of our Flowers for Every Season DSP in Origami. It isn’t perfect, but I will practice some more to get those nice clean, crisp folds.

This floral paper is perfect for this fold and I was happy with the final look. The sentiment is from the Seaside Notions stamp set.

I mounted it onto some white card to frame it on the Misty Moonlight woodgrain patterned paper from the In Color DSP Pack. How beautiful are those Beaded Pearl centres?!!  They finish it off nicely.

My next card is a simple Christmas card using the Snowflake Splendor DSP, Stitched Triangle dies and the Christmas Layers dies for the snowflakes.

The Copper Star Designer Elements on top of the trees add a touch of elegance.

Colour Creations Showcase – Mint Macaron – Faceted Gift Box

AWHT Colour Creations ShowcaseEach 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.

Week 27 – Mint Macaron

This is a really easy gift box to put together, even though it looks quite fancy!

It stands at 14cm tall x 13cm wide and can fit gift card, chocolates, jewellery – lots of different gifts for this Christmas.

It uses a full sheet of A4 cardstock with some scoring and minimal cutting to create the base.

The free template can be found over on my Tutorial page.

The Ornate Garden DSP is super elegant with the touch of gold foil swirls.

The Small Blooms punch was used to cut the gold foil and some Gilded Gems added to the centres.

The tag is cut with the Label Me Fancy punch and some Linen Thread tied through to attach it to the Mint Macaron ribbon at the top.

Partridge in a Pear Wreath

Arrange a Wreath Bundle

My colour combination: Rich Razzleberry – Bermuda Bay – Bumblebee – Whisper White

Using Blending Brushes or a foam sponge roller, add colour directly from the inkpads of each of the feature colours onto a Whisper White strip of cardstock. This will create a beautiful soft background. Before adhering it to the front of your card base, flick some drops of Wink of Stella over it and allow it to dry for a few minutes.

Stamp 4 or 5 pears by inking them up on the Bumblebee inkpad, then take a Sponge dauber to add a little Bermuda Bay ink around the edges to get that two tone colour. Give your stamp a huff of breath to re-activate the ink before stamping onto white card, then cut them out with the coordinating die. Repeat the same process for the bird, starting with Bermuda Bay, then sponge Rich Razzleberry.

Die cut 3 wreaths in each of the colours and glue them together. Add the stamped images with dimenionals, so they pop up a little. Stamp your sentiment and add some Elegant Faceted Gems.

Quick and easy Christmas Pine Tree featuring DSP

Using the 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP in the background as well as behind the tree cut out, you can quickly create some elegant Christmas card. The In the Pines bundle and Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set are my must have items for the holiday season.

My colour combo: Just Jade, Cinnamon Cider, White

The Lovely Labels Pick a Punch is used to create the fancy ends of my sentiment. The Just Jade layer is embossed with the Subtle 3D TIEF for a bit of texture. A Star Designer Element is added to the top of the tree. We all need a star or an angel there!

I till felt it was missing something, so I added a Just Jade Gingham bow made using the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack.

On the inside, I added some left over strips and used the Banner Triple Punch on the ends.

Colour Creations Showcase – Merry Merlot – Dove of Hope with Blended Background

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

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.

Week 26 – Merry Merlot

The Dove of Hope stamp set and coordinating Detailed Dove dies make gorgeous Christmas cards without too much effort.

Craft with Kate Colour Combination Merry Merlot Just Jade Whisper White

The card base is Merry Merlot, embossed with the Dainty Diamonds 3D TIEF. The Whisper White layer, I scored the border using the Simply Scored, at 1/8″ intervals. This is another great way to create borders without adding extra bulk to your card.

I used a Decorative Mask (oops, sorry this one is retired) but you can use any mask with Blending Brushes. Once I removed the mask, I found it a bit “in your face”, so I lightly brushed over it again to soften the look… much better! The sentiment is stamped in Merry Merlot before I added the dove.

Some Elegant Faceted Gems were added at the very end for a little bling.

Colour Creations Showcase – Melon Mambo No-line Watercolour Technique

AWHT Colour Creations ShowcaseEach 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.

Week 25 – Melon Mambo

For tonight’s card, I wanted to revisit the no-line watercolour technique, where you stamp the image (2nd generation) in Sahara Sand ink onto Watercolour paper.

This is definitely a technique that takes a lot of practice (for me anyway!) and you need to take your time to allow the colour to dry before adding more for a deeper effect. I used the Water Painters (without filling the barrel with water). I just have a glass of water next to me so the brush doesn’t get too wet as I work. I take the ink from the lid of the inkpad and apply with a light colour over the entire bloom, before going back over it in small sections, allowing to dry between layers.

From a distance, the poppy looks pretty good and I’m fairly happy with the outcome. I haven’t added a sentiment as yet, that will come when I figure out who this card will go to, hence why the image is not centred in the die cut frame. I will add the sentiment to the left later on!

The Scripty Embossing Folder gave my card a more old-worldly feel, as does the Scalloped Lace Trim. The die cut is popped up on dimensionals.

On the inside, I stamped the poppies across the bottom using the same technique. The sentiment is stamped in Sahara Sand ink 3 times using the Stamparatus, to get a nice dark colour.

Colour Creations Showcase: Mango Melody is a Whisky Business

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

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.

Week 24 – Mango Melody

This is a super bright colour and not one I use a lot of, but I recently purchased this stamp set, Whiskey Business during the sale and wanted to ink it up!

I used the Misty Moonlight pages from the 2020–2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ (15.2cm x 15.2cm) Designer Series Paper pack and the In Good Taste DSP to create a bench for the images to sit on.

The images are stamped in Gray Granite on White card and coloured with the Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Combo. They are fussy cut and added to the card on dimensionals. The ice cubes have Shimmery Crystal Effects added for texture. The sentiment is stamped in the Mango Melody ink on the same colour card and cut up then glued directly to the card.

On the inside I simply added off cuts of the DSP and stamped a simple sentiment.

Curvy Christmas Wreath

I’m loving the Curvy Celebrations suite of products now available – some products are early release items from the upcoming 2021 Mini catalogue.

Curvy Christmas & Classic Christmas DSP

Quite Curvy & Curvy Dies

The rich colours of this Classic Christmas DSP includes Cherry Cobbler, Sahara Sand, Shaded Spruce with white, but tonight I am using all but Sahara Sand for my classic Christmas card.

I decided to create a wreath using the Stamparatus to stamp the foliage in the round. The stars were stamped the same way, to get that beautiful uniform pattern.

The bird is stamped in Memento ink, coloured with Cherry Cobbler Blends Markers and cut out with the coordinating die. The circles are cut using the Layering Circles dies.

Warm and Toasty Christmas meets Curvy Christmas

How cute is this Christmas scene with the stunning Snowflake Spendor paper in the background and snow scene in front created with the new Curvy dies. The sentiment is from the Curvy Christmas stamp set which is part of the Quite Curvy Variety Bundle. It is stamped in Pool Party ink, as are the snowflakes. The trees (In the Pines) are stamped in Highland Heather and Pool Party ink.

The bunnies in the sleigh are stamped in Memento ink and coloured with Stampin’ Blends, fussy cut and added with dimensionals.

How fun is this card?!!!
