CCBH Crumb Cake – Delicate Dahlias and Feels Like Home

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 13 – Crumb Cake

I have chosen a soft colour palette for tonight’s card using the Delicate Dahlias stamp set. This is one of the free items in Sale•a•bration brochure with any $180+ order. This stamp set has the outline for the flower and also a full image stamp to colour inside the lines. I found using the Stamparatus was much easier to line the stamps up!

Colour Combination - Crumb Cake

My card base is Blushing Bride, embossed with the Ornate Floral 3D Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. First I stamped the outline of the dahlia flower onto a post-it note and cut it out with Paper Snips, on the inner edge of the stamping. Then I took an A5 piece of Basic White cardstock and stamped one of the dahlia flowers then placed the post-it note over the top and stamped the second flower and the third flower using the same process.

I stamped the outline of the flowers in Crumb Cake and the centres are Blushing Bride, So Saffron and Soft Sea Foam. The sentiment is stamped in Crumb Cake ink on Crumb Cake card and cut out with Everyday Label Punch. The sentiment is smaller than the punch, so I placed it back in the punch and took more off each end. I used a sponge dauber to softly add ink around the edges.

The wood frame is the In Good Taste DSP and die cut using two of the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I used the smaller Stitched Rectangle Die again to cut out the stamped flowers to insert into the frame. The frame and the sentiment are all added to the card base on dimensionals.

Card 2 is for Father’s Day! Have you made your cards yet?!!! Father’s Day is not far away, as in Australia, we celebrate it on 5th September. As I need to mail my cards (possibly both this year if we are still in lockdown), I needed to get them in the mail this week. So for my card tody, I am creating a fancy fold with the Feels Like Home stamp set.

Here is a close up of the image on the card front, stamped with Versamark Ink with White Emboss Powder, then heat set with the Heat Tool. I was thinking of colouring it, but I loved the crispness of the white against the Crumb Cake, so I left it. The sentiment is from the Free as a Bird stamp set.

Update: Want to hear a funny story? Actually, it’s not funny at all and I want to cry. We have a 5 month old puppy, Arlo, who loves to chew… well, he got to my card (that was in an envelope) and this is all that’s left of it, along with the chewed up paper/envelope 😢 Back to the drawing board to create another one for my dad, grrr. Lucky I still have a week to get it made and that I had photographed this one already!!!

Week 22 – Just Jade

Tonight’s card is a real mish mash of products – In Good Taste DSP and Peony Garden DSP, which are both on sale in October, then I have the Free as a Bird Stamp Set and the Home Together dies from the Christmas range!

When I saw this little house die, it reminded me of a bird feeder on a pole in the garden and so I paired it with the Free a a bird stamp. This image is coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I just love the dark wood of the In Good Taste DSP in the background and for the bird feeder. I initially had just the Jade embossed layer but added the piece from the Peony Garden DSP as well for some contrast. This is a real nature’s dream of a card!

Free as a Bird

Now you’ve had a couple of days to look through the catalogue, what are your must have items? Any of the ones I shared with you on Tuesday?

I am loving the Bird Ballad Laser Cut Cards & Tin. Here I have used it with some of the Bird Ballad Designer Series paper behind the laser cut card.

Then I stamped the image & sentiment onto whisper white card and coloured it with Stampin’ Blends markers before die cutting with the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.

I placed some Petal Pink Organdy Striped ribbon behind the die cut and adhered them to the card with dimensionals.

How gorgeous is this bird image? I stamped quite a few one day and then on a Saturday night, usually it’s family movie night in our house, and I wasn’t so interested in watching their choice of movie, so I sat with them and coloured the images. Great use of time I reckon!!!

Will you be adding any of these products to your collection?
