So Saffron Blog Hop ~ Pierced Daisies

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 44 – So Saffron

As a child growing up in Tasmania, I loved making daisy chains and this memory was my inspiration for tonight’s card featuring many retiring products from the 2021-22 Annual catalogue. The Pierced Blooms dies have been an absolute favourite of mine and I know I will be keeping these forever!

Some of the other products used are the Ornate Floral 3D TIEF (Textured Impressions Embossing Folder) and the Tasteful Textiles TIEF, Timeless Tulips stamp set (sentiment) and the Ornate Layers dies. Misty Moonlight is one of the In Colors that will also be retiring, but how beautiful does it look with So Saffron, Soft Sea Foam and Basic White?!!!

I stamped the sentiment multiple times (stamped twice before reinking) down the left side of the white panel before embossing it with the Tasteful Textile 3D TIEF. The Misty Moonlight layer is embossed with the Ornate Floral 3D TIEF.

I stamped the sentiment again on a small offcut of white card and layered it with Misty Moonlight and popped it up on two Dimensionals with a little piece of the Cotton Ribbon Trim behind. Four of the daisies are popped up on Dimensionals and the other two adhered with liquid glue directly to the card.

Monochrome Creative Showcase

AWHT Creative Showcase

Welcome to the March Creative Showcase with the Art With Heart Team!

This month we are featuring Monochromatic cards, that is cards that only use different shades of the same colour. This is a great opportunity for us to demonstrate the wonderful range of Stampin’ Up! colours across our inks, papers and embellishments that can be combined to produce the amazing monochromatic samples we have to share with you.

Now let’s get started!

My first project is a masculine card predominantly using the Waterfront stamp set and Night of Navy and White. The sentiment is from the Birthday Goodness stamp set.

My next card is a sneak peek at some new product coming soon for my feminine Rococo Rose Monochrome card. This is the Ornate Style stamp set, Ornate Border Dies & Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder. (All these items will be available in the upcoming Annual catalogue in June, or now if you wish to join and add them to your starter kit).

Emboss the Rococo Rose card base with the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder. Die cut the border die in the same colour card once, then line it up on the opposite side to achieve the strip of fancy border.

Stamp the floral image in Versamark ink onto whisper white card, added clear emboss powder and heat set it. Then I used a sponge dauber and roughly inked the entire image, before fussy cutting.

Using the Rococo Rose Light & Dark Stampin’ Blends Markers, colour the image. I also used the Light marker to outline the entire image. I used the dark maker to colour the rhinestones and the Whisper White Ribbon.

On the inside, I used the Ornate Border die to create that floral die cut down the right side. The rhinestones are the perfect size to sit in the centre of the flower. The sentiment is stamped using the Family Party Stamp set.
