CCBH Early Espresso – Blackberry Beauty Pop Up Card & 3D Dahlia Sympathy Card

CCS Logo 2021-22

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

Week 16 – Early Espresso

Early Espresso is a very dark brown and not one that I tend to go to often, so I had to really think about what I was going to create. I received a sample of the Blackberry Beauty Specialty DSP as part of a team share and noticed that Early Espresso was one of the colours! Winning!

So tonight, I have projects using the Blackberry Beauty Specialty Designer Series Paper. These papers are gorgeous with the gold foil accents. I am also using the Blackberry Beauty Ephemera Pack which has these lovely gold foil embellishments, including the tag.

The sentiment (Forever Fern stamp set) is stamped in Early Espresso ink. I added a few Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots which coordinate perfectly.

But open this card and a surprise awaits!

Pieces of the Blackberry Beauty Ephemera Pack were used on the inside pop up box as well as the Meadow Dies to cut some of the stunning Be Dazzling Specialty paper (free choice during SAB).

My next card is a Sympathy card using the Delicate Dahlias stamp set and the Sweets & Treats stamp set.

The Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder is used on the base card. The Stitched Rectangle Dies cut from some In Good Taste DSP was placed on an angle in the corner.

The vase is created from the cloche image from Sweets & Treats stamp set, stamped onto Basic White card. The Blending Brushes with Early Espresso ink was applied over one of the stencils from Plenty of Patterns Decorative Masks. Once the pattern was on the cloche, I removed the mask and lightly brushed more colour so the white wasn’t so stark. Using Paper Snips, cut it out, turn it upside down and glue to the card. The sentiment was stamped in Versamark ink, White Emboss Powder added and set with the Heat Tool. This was then cut into three separate words and added with Mini Dimensionals.

The flower was stamped four times and the leaves twice with Black Memento ink onto Basic White. These were fussy cut (see below image) and then coloured using the Blending Brushes and Soft Succulent and Fresh Freesia inks. I also used the Fresh Freesia Stampin’ Blends Markers on the petals, before adding some Wink of Stella. Next was to add dimensionals behind the petals and lining them up on top of each other!

CCS Flirty Flamingo – Forever Fern Wreath

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

Forever Fern with the Baby Wipe Technique

AWHT Creative Showcase

The Art With Heart Team are back with another Creative Showcase, this time featuring different colouring techniques. The Stampin’ Up! range contains a bevy of functional and effective colouring tools; Blends Markers, Water Painters, Inks, Daubers, Watercolour Pencils, Stampin’ Write Markers and more. Enjoy the amazing projects our team members have to share with you, demonstrating these products.

Now let’s get started!

Tonight I am sharing the baby wipe technique featuring the Forever Fern Bundle. To get started setting up your technique, you will need a couple of baby wipes folded in half on a plate. Take your chosen ink refill bottles, and place a few drops of each colour randomly so you have different colours next to each other, leaving a little space between the colours so they can spread and merge. This is now your inkpad, stamp your image right into the baby wipes. When using this technique, you want to make the most of the ink, so expect to make loads of projects with stamped images from the one batch. I stamped lots of sheets of A4 Shimmery White card to make the most of it!

Bumblebee Jade Magenta

I stamped the background with the one image. The foliage behind the sentiment is stamped in Just Jade ink and die cut and another of the leaf images stamped the same way as the background.

How gorgeous does that sentiment look in all those pretty merged colours?!

My next card I used the inlay technique. The foliage is stamped using the baby wipe technique and then the Just Jade layer is die cut with only the dies randomly placed before being embossed with the Greenery embossing folder. This is glued to the Magenta Madness layer and then the foliage glued inside! The sentiment is stamped on white card and die cut with the Tasteful Labels dies.

The gold hoop embellishment is added and some more foliage is die cut out of card stock and popped up on dimensionals on the edge of the hoop. To finish off I added a bumblebee gingham bow, In Color Enamel dots and some of the gold thread.

My final card tonight is my favourite. I love the background image in these colours. It is a more delicate leaf image and very feminine.

The Forever Greenery Trim Combo pack has this gold thread and when you cut it in small pieces, it unravels and you get these delicate threads. I placed them behind the die cut images for a softer look.

Of course, with some left over images, I added these die cuts to the inside of each card!
