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!

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?

Colour Creations: Old Olive – Lasting Lily Sympathy card

9bdc0-34343751_10157403755198098_7101250458500464640_o

Welcome back to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring our 33rd colour; Old Olive.

I cased today’s card from page 18 of the Sale-a-bration brochure. This is a really great way of getting ideas when using a new stamp set!

My card base is actually Thick Whisper White which I have glued to an A5 piece of Old Olive card stock. But first, I embossed it with the Lace Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I also die cut the large circle and stamped the Lily stems behind onto the white card. I wrapped some Linen Thread twice around the Old Olive card, tied it in a bow to the right before gluing the entire piece to the card base.

I stamped the lilies in Daffodil Delight onto spare white card and fussy cut around them before adding them with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment on a strip of white card and used the Triple Banner punch on each end, and added with dimensionals. The inside of the card is simply stamped, but I did fussy cut the lily so it was the same as the front of the card!

This colour combination is stunning; Berry Burst, Granny Apple Green and Whisper White.  The Textured Weave Ribbon coordinates perfectly for this card. Just tied the ends in a knot and wrapped it around the card layers.
