CCBH Crushed Curry – You can Count on Me

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 14 – Crushed Curry

Oh how I love this cute stamp set, Count on Me. I don’t know why it has taken me so long to get it! My thinking was, Crushed Curry reminds me of honey and bears love honey, so lets try and make something work along these lines. I have a niece who is turning one soon, so I had her in mind with this card, as when you open it, you see the word ‘one’.

My card base is Crushed Curry card with a layer of In Good Taste DSP, 5mm smaller than the card front. Add glue just around the edges and adhere this to front of the card, so the centre circle will pop out once you die cut it with the Layering Circle Dies. This is then added to the inside panel.

I stamped the bear image onto Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper using the Stamparatus with Soft Suede ink, then clean the stamp with your Simply Shammy. Then I inked the stamp with the Versamark ink, sprinkled Clear Emboss Powder over it, shake off the excess and heat set it with my Heat Tool. Now it is easier to watercolour without the ink bleeding. I used the Water Painters to colour my bear with Soft Suede ink and the heart with Real Red ink. Once dry, I used Paper Snips to fussy cut it out.

I die cut the words from the Love You More Than dies in Melon Mambo card and the Playful Alphabet dies for the individual letters ‘honey’.

The Scallop circle on the front was die cut using two of the Layering Circle dies, the scallop one being the bigger size to the circle cut previously. They actually sit perfectly inside one another to die cut the Crushed Curry scallop circle in one pass through the die cutting machine. This is added with Multipurpose Glue. Lastly, I added my bear with dimensionals.

The Blending Brushes are a recent addition to the SU store and they are amazing to work with. I created this soft background with So Saffron at the top and Granny Apple Green at the bottom, blending them in the centre.

The poppy is stamped in Memento Black ink and coloured with Stampin’ Blends Combo Markers; Poppy Parade & Granny Apple Green. The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink, and heat embossed with White Emboss Powder.

Linen Thread is wrapped around three times the patterned paper layer and tied in a bow, before gluing it to a Basic White Thick cardstock base.

On the inside I stamped the a small field of poppies and coloured the same way as the front. I also brushed Granny Apple Green ink with the Blending Brushes as well to add a little colour.

Christmas, Designer/Patterned/Specialty Papers (DSP), Handmade Cards, Stampin' Up!

Traditional Christmas card to Cherish the Season

Today’s Christmas card is an easy one to create and make multiples of during the silly season!

The card base is Thick Whisper White (although you cannot see it) as I have placed a piece of Gold Foil over the entire card front. The Plaid Tidings DSP is the next layer, a lovely piece for Christmas. This Designer Paper pack is on sale for the month of October saving you 15%, so make sure you add it to your next order!

I have stamped these bells in Versamark Ink onto Cherry Cobbler card, added Gold Emboss Powder and heat set it. The same process for the sentiment, although I fussy cut this one. I die cut the Cherry Cobbler card with the Nested Stitched Labels dies and cut one end off before adhering to the card.

The foliage is die cut from Just Jade card and glued above the bells. I tied some of the gold thread in a bow and added this at the very end with glue to allow it to dry. I find that the Multipurpose Glue is the strongest adhesive to hold this thread.

Oh deer, Vanilla & Gold!

Today, is the last day of school for 2018 for my girls and the final day of primary school for my eldest daughter :0  It has been a big week, with her Graduation night on Tuesday evening and half day of school today to end the year.

Anyway, I have another Christmas card for you before my in-laws arrive tomorrow for the start of our Christmas celebrations. This one is simply some DSP, Gold Foil and the Detailed Deer die cut.

All is Bright DSP & Dashing Deer by Kate Morgan, Australia. Christmas 2018.JPG

The sentiment is stamped on strips of card with Versamark ink, Gold Emboss Powder applied and set with the heat tool. Then I cut the words up and added with dimensionals. These are quite simple and you could mass produce them with not too much trouble.

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Gorgeous Grape!!!

Wow, what a wonderful colour combination I have for you with this card.

I love all the layers and the Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut Specialty paper is that wonderful white diamond layer. How beautiful is it?!

I stamped the jar image onto vellum with Gray Granite ink, covered it with clear emboss powder and heat set it before die cutting it out using the coordinating Everyday Jars framelits. It was added to the card with glue dots hidden behind the lid and the bow!!!

I love decorating the inside of my card, so I stamped some of the foliage and placed a few small flowers on top. You may have noticed I don’t have any sentiments, but I deliberately left them off as this card could be used for so many different occasions and I haven’t got a specific one in mind just yet.

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Garden Green!!!

I think this Designer Paper is so pretty and lifelike, that I didn’t want to cover it up too much and let it be the hero of this card. I did add a strip of Gold Glimmer and a piece of Cherry Cobbler that has the Stitched Labels framelits die (those little crosses) down one side.

Those berries are the basic pearls coloured with the Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends marker. The spigs have Wink of Stella on them for that gorgeous glimmer and the Starburst punch is embossed with the Subtle Dynamic Embossing Folder. The Merry was stamped with Versamark ink and embossed with gold embossing powder.

Colour Creations Blog Hop featuring Bermuda Bay with Accented Blooms

Hello Crafters,

Some of the Art With Heart team have decided to do a weekly Blog Hop that highlights a different colour in our range each week. Today we are featuring one of my favourite colours, Bermuda Bay!!!

Today I’ve used the Accented Blooms stamp set with the coordinating Tailored Tag punch. I stamped the image with Versamark ink, added white embossing powder and heat set it. Then I coloured the images with Stampin’ Write Markers; Daffodil Delight, Gorgeous Grape, Melon Mambo & Bermuda Bay. Then I added some Wink of Stella to the Bermuda Bay flowers to add some shine and highlight the colour.

Accented Blooms Birthday card Stampin Up by Kate Morgan, Australia 2018.jpg

Using the Trio punch, I took out a notch on the spine of the card to thread the new gorgeous grape mini striped ribbon through and tie it in a bow!

The sentiment is from the Best Bunny stamp set. I used the Stamparatus to create this. I had the sentiment on one plate and the solid image on another. I stamped the sentiment first with Versamark and then add the white embossing powder and heat set it. Then I placed it back in the Stamparatus and inked the solid image with Bermuda Bay ink and stamped it a couple of times to get a deep, rich colour. Then I used a tissue to wipe off the excess ink from the embossed sentiment. This was then punched out and added with dimensionals.

Congratulations Petal Palette in Copper & Marble

Dear Crafters,

Wow, is it really the last day of February? Where did those 2 months go???

Today I share a Congratulations card using the Petal Palette Bundle & the Marbled background stamp.

Last Wednesday I shared a card using this same technique, you can see it here; however, this one uses darker colours. I’ve used Bermuda Bay instead of Pool Party, for a richer colour. I also used Copper instead of gold!

I love the richness of the copper embossing powder and the leaves die cut in the copper foil add some extra shine to the card. The bird is stamped in Perfect Plum ink on coordinating card and die cut. The same with the sentiment on Bermuda Bay card.

Christmas Star Gift Box

Dear Crafters,

Today I have the cutest little gift box in the shape of a Christmas Star! But you could use it for any occasion really. I have used the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper.

This box doesn’t even require any glue to hold it together, it is such a clever project and is actually much easier than it looks!

I got the inspiration for this from a lady in the USA, Julie DiMatteo of The Paper Pixie. She has some amazing tutorials for the most stunning projects and I happened to catch this one as she was doing a live video and immediately got crafting to make one before I forgot the measurements. You too can watch her video by clicking on her name above.

Whoa, 5 days til Santa arrives…. have you been good? Do you have a Stampin’ Up! Gift Certificate on your list like me?!!!! You can order one by clicking the image below!

Blog Hop: Add Texture with Embossing!

Hello Crafters,

Tonight the Art with Heart team girls are sharing some creative projects by adding texture with embossing. Embossing can add a lovely dimension, and with our wonderful Stampin’ Up! products, we can create many different looks. These include Heat embossing using embossing powder, dry embossing using our textured folders or by adding embossing paste!

AWHT Blog Hop - November 2017 - Add Texture with Embossing.jpg

If you’re already hopping, then you just came to me from the lovely, Sharon Davern. 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 today features some new products you may not have seen yet, from the soon to be released Occasions catalogue and Sale-a-bration brochure. This stamp set, Party Pandas is going to be very popular as one of the FREE stamp sets when you spend $90+ during Sale-a-bration! I have also featured the Scattered Sequins Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

I have added some Wink of Stella to each sequin, but I’m not sure if you can this in the photos? The Lemon Lime Twist ribbon and the Adhesive Backed Tutti Fruitti Sequins are also new products.

For my next project, I have used the Embossing Paste with Pattern Party Decorative Masks and then quickly added some gold embossing powder and heat set it. This showcases two embossing techniques in one, and look at that amazing effect!!!! I’ve also dry embossed the background, so all three embossing techniques are used on this one card!

I’ve also used the Stampin Blends Markers to colour the flower!

The embossing paste adds a wonderful texture to your projects. The best thing about it, is that you can colour it with your reinkers to change the colour, you can add embossing powder before it dries and heat set it, but you can also mix in some fine glitter!
