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.

Sketch Challenge for our last Art with Heart Blog Hop for 2018!

Blog Hop Card Sketch Nov 18

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring a card sketch. We hope you like how we have each put our own spin on this sketch and that it inspires you to get creative and make some fabulous cards. If you are inspired by the sketch, please share your projects with us!

If you’re already hopping, then you just came to me from our hop organiser, Ros Davidson. If you’re just joining, great! Use the “next” button at the end of my post to hop all the way around. Blog Hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post there is a link to the next one. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links. Now let’s get started!

My first project tonight uses the stamp set, Enjoy Life with a technique called the Floating Window. The card base is Tranquil Tide with a Square die cut out of the front. I placed a small piece of Berry Burst Metallic Edged Ribbon, cut on angles, below the square to act a bit like a window shelf.

On the inside of the card, I used my D size clear block and tapped it onto the Pool Party Inkpad, then spritzed it with some water and stamped it onto the Whisper White card for a cool watercolour effect. You must wait for this to dry before stamping the images over the top in Stazon Black ink and the female image in Berry Burst ink. By using the Stamparatus, I could then keep the figure in the same position to be able to ink the window sheet in the exact same place so it lays over the top of the image on the inside of the card when you open and close it.

A piece of window sheet is stamped with Stazon Black ink with the grass and the female image only.  Using the Stamparatus, I could get a nice dark image, by re-inking the stamps a couple of times. You may be able to see the two images layered in this photo!

My second project is a quick Christmas card, using some of the Under the Mistletoe Designer Paper with some Frost White Shimmer Paint sponged over the top. The sentiment from the Merry Christmas to All stamp set is stamped in Versamark ink and silver embossing powder applied, then heat set with a heat tool. I also added a square of Silver Foil and some Silver Glimmer cut with the Triple Banner Punch.

Colour Creations: Enjoy Life, Call Me Clover

Hello Crafters,

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Call Me Clover!!!

Today’s card was inspired from watching the Tour de France on TV this month. I am totally in awe of how they ride such huge distances; over 3,500 kms in 23 days.  I also love seeing all the gorgeous countryside of France. It reminds me of my trip through some of these same areas, back in 2001!

I have used the Enjoy Life stamp set with some of the Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper as a layer behind the cyclists. The bike image is stamped in the full colour, then stamped again as a second generation stamping to get the lighter shade and even again a third time. Don’t you think it looks just like a Peloton?!!!

The inside of the card, I have placed a layer of Very Vanilla card, stamped simply with some of the grass in Call Me Clover ink.
