Colour Creations Blog Hop featuring Bermuda Bay with Accented Blooms

Hello Crafters,

Some of the Art With Heart team have decided to do a weekly Blog Hop that highlights a different colour in our range each week. Today we are featuring one of my favourite colours, Bermuda Bay!!!

Today I’ve used the Accented Blooms stamp set with the coordinating Tailored Tag punch. I stamped the image with Versamark ink, added white embossing powder and heat set it. Then I coloured the images with Stampin’ Write Markers; Daffodil Delight, Gorgeous Grape, Melon Mambo & Bermuda Bay. Then I added some Wink of Stella to the Bermuda Bay flowers to add some shine and highlight the colour.

Using the Trio punch, I took out a notch on the spine of the card to thread the new gorgeous grape mini striped ribbon through and tie it in a bow!

The sentiment is from the Best Bunny stamp set. I used the Stamparatus to create this. I had the sentiment on one plate and the solid image on another. I stamped the sentiment first with Versamark and then add the white embossing powder and heat set it. Then I placed it back in the Stamparatus and inked the solid image with Bermuda Bay ink and stamped it a couple of times to get a deep, rich colour. Then I used a tissue to wipe off the excess ink from the embossed sentiment. This was then punched out and added with dimensionals.

Christmas, Handmade Cards, Stampin' Up!

The Heart of Christmas, Week 15

Heart of Christmas Stampin Up Art with Heart Team Christmas Inspiration

Hello Friends,

Welcome to Week 15 of The Heart of Christmas: Handmade Inspiration from the Art with Heart team!

My project today uses the Musical Season the stamp set and the coordinating dies, Musical Instruments Framelits and the Emboss Resist Technique.

I used Versamark ink to stamp the foliage onto white card, then added white embossing powder and heat set it. I used a sponge brayer with Pear Pizzazz ink over the top to give this gorgeous, subtle look. The little drummer boy was inked in black and die cut and added with dimensionals. The sentiment was added using a black Stampin’ Write Marker directly to each of the words, cleaned and repeated to allow each one amongst the foliage! I used a sponge dauber and Smoky Slate ink to edge this layer before adding the strip of mini sequin trim and adhering this layer to the Pear Pizzazz card.

I love this little drummer boy… I think of the carol every time I see this image and start singing… par rum pa pa pum!!!

The inside of the card was stamped in the coordinating colours!

Watercolour Dragonflies

Dear Crafters,

Today I share another sneak peek of the Dragonfly Dreams Bundle, but this time using the emboss resist technique.

I love how simple but effective this technique is!

Begin by stamping the images in Versamark ink, then add clear embossing powder and heat set.

Using the AquaPainter and ink, brush on the colour blending the two together in the centre. I’ve used Calypso Coral and Marina Mist.

To get those dots, I dropped tiny amounts of water from the AquaPainter, let it sit for a minute or two, then dabbed off with some paper towel. This lifts the colour already added.

I also added a vellum dragonfly and some pearls to the body.

What do you think of this card?
