Colour Creations Showcase: Magenta Madness for Sympathy and Christmas!

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 23 – Magenta Madness

The Flowers for Every Season patterned paper is so pretty, that you don’t even need to add much extra to a card to make it special. However, in this case, I’ve added a vase of flowers for a sympathy card for a work colleague who recently lost her dear mum. Even though she was in her 90s, the pain is still so raw.

This card is gorgeous and bright, and just what was needed for this occasion. I know lots of sympathy cards are not quite so cheery, but I love to keep them bright as though the departed spirit lives on.

The vase is stamped in Memento ink and coloured with So Saffron Stampin’ Blends (alcohol markers), then fussy cut. A beautiful ribbon bow is added.

The Forever Flourishing dies were used to cut some Just Jade foliage and the Magenta flowers are cut using the Small Blooms punch and an enamel dot in the centres.

The sentiment is stamped onto Magenta Madness card in the same colour ink and cut out with the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch. I used the thicker end of my Blends Marker to run it around the edges, rather than a sponge dauber. It’s easier to get into those little fancy ends!

I have also made a Christmas card with this bright paper pack – I cut a piece of DSP 15cm x 13cm, then cut it into 1cm strips. I took another piece of card 5mm smaller than the card front and added Stampin’ Seal around the edges and across the length. Starting at one end, I adhered the strips, offsetting each one. Once they were all on the card, I turned it over and trimmed off the edges.

This reindeer is so cute coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers and Wink of Stella added to the bow and nose for some sparkle. The Gold Hoop has some ribbon tied around it and up over the top of the layered card. The bow was tied separately and added with a glue dot. The reindeer and sentiment are popped up on dimensionals.

Would you use the Flowers for Every Season patterned paper for your Christmas cards?

Misty Moonlight Special

The Flowers for Every Season designer paper is just amazing, from the vibrant colours to the more subdue colours in this sheet. I think Misty Moonlight is my favourite of the NEW In Colors, and I love this particular patterned paper in the pack.

Misty Moonlight & Flowers for Every Season DSP by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2020

This card is very simple, but I feel that the paper does all the talking and I didn’t want to cover it up too much. Hence the vellum layer behind the sentiment.

Tonight’s Stampin’ Up! colour is the NEW In Color, Bumblebee!

I have two cards for you and they feature all the New In Colors and the gorgeous Flowers for Every Season Designer Paper.

Bumblebee Cinnamon Cider Whisper White

Bumblebee card using Stampin Up Flowers for Every Season DSP & Well Written dies by Kate Morgan, Australia 2020

To create this bow, I cut a length of ribbon (approximately 9″) and tied the bow in the centre so you have two long tails. Glue these tails at the back of the card before adding this entire layer to your card base. I did place a glue dot behind the bow, just to hold it in place.

My next card is a Peek a boo window card!

Peek a Boo Window 14th birthday card using Stampin Up Prized Peony by Kate Morgan Australia 2020

To create the window, simply place your die over the card in your machine, but place the top clear plate only over the section of the die that you want to cut, leaving part of it exposed, then run through your machine. Score a line straight across so the two cut edges meet to create the window opening.

I cut an extra oval from white card to place on the front of the window to stamp on.

I also cut a slightly larger oval to place behind the front layers to stamp on. This is glued down before adhering the top layers. This allows for the card base to be a normal A6 card with a sentiment and for your written message inside.

When the card is open, I have stamped a message using the Family Party stamp set. It is s wonderful set for personalising your message.

Arrange a Wreath this Christmas

Can you believe it is July already? Where has this year gone?!

Tonight you may not quite be ready for what I am about to share with you, but I have my first Christmas card!

I know it is always a panic towards the end of the year, to be ready for Christmas, as it comes around so fast when we are super busy. I start in July and make one or two cards a week, so by the time 1 December comes, I have a nice little stash of cards to send out in the post.

Anyway here goes!

I  using the Arrange a Wreath Bundle from the 2020-21 Annual catalogue and it’s a beauty. I have created a square card with a layer of the new In Color, Just Jade textured with the Greenery embossing folder, love it. Then a layer of designer paper from the Flowers for Every Season paper pack.

Christmas card using Arrange a Wreath in Just Jade by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2020

The wreath is die cut in Just Jade and the flowers in Poppy Parade to coordinate with the designer paper. The signage is stamped in Crumb Cake ink and the sentiment in Black ink. I attached some Linen Thread so it is hanging from the wreath and added a little bow at the top. These die cut elements are added with dimensionals for that real wreath effect.

Wonderful Magenta Madness with a White Peony

Oh my, this Prized Peony Stamp set and coordinating dies are amazing!

When I opened the pack of dies, I thought “how on earth do these work” as I was so overwhelmed with the amount of dies in there.

154056o02  154056o01

But once you know how they go together, it’s easy right?!!! And yes, it is really easy to put the flower together. It is 4 dies to create the bloom, each one sliding into the other from smallest to largest, then the stamen last. I have kept this one white as my first attempt, but it really is glorious just like that.

60th Feminine birthday card using Prized Peony Magenta Madness by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2020.

I stamped one of the images in Magenta Madness ink onto the same colour card base. The vellum layer is die cut and added with a couple of strips of Designer Paper over the top before adding the bloom on dimensionals. This made it easy to add some green leaves underneath where you want them.

Colour Combination Prized Peony Magenta

60th Feminine birthday card using Prized Peony Magenta Madness by Kate Morgan Stampin Up Australia 2020..

Both sentiments are from the Peaceful Moments stamp set, stamped in Magenta Madness ink. The 60 is die cut from the retired Little Numbers dies, but there are some new ones in the annual catalogue, which I don’t have just yet.
