Colour Creations Showcase – Cajun Craze

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Tonight’s Stampin’ Up! colour is Cajun Craze, a real deep rusty brown colour!

I will admit it right now, it is my least favourite colour in the Stampin’ Up! range, but when used in small doses, it can be effective!

Tonight’s card features Cajun Craze, Pool Party and Whisper White.

The Pool Party card base is embossed with the Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder. The next layer is die cut with the Ornate Layers Dies and white layer is cut with the Stitched Rectangle dies.

The wreath stamp is inked up with Cajun Craze ink and I stamped this onto scrap paper before onto my card layer. This is called stamping off or 2nd generation stamping. The full colour was just too dark for what I was wanting.

To create the die cut wreath, I first took a clear block, placed some Cajun Craze ink on it and a drop of Frost White Shimmer Paint. Using the Water Painter, add some water and mix the ink & paint together and brush it across a piece of white card. Once dry, cut the wreath and glue it on top of the stamped wreath. Cut the edges off from around the overhanging edges. Glue the white layer to the Pool Party layer and add the sentiment in 2nd generation stamping. These layers are added to the card base with dimensionals.

Die cut the small and large flowers and glue them to the front and inside card. Place a  Champagne Rhinestone in the centre of each flower and add a pretty Pool Party Sheer ribbon bow.

Some Wink of Stella is added to the flowers on the front of the card and also to the sentiment.

Wonderful Magenta Madness with a White Peony

Oh my, this Prized Peony Stamp set and coordinating dies are amazing!

When I opened the pack of dies, I thought “how on earth do these work” as I was so overwhelmed with the amount of dies in there.

But once you know how they go together, it’s easy right?!!! And yes, it is really easy to put the flower together. It is 4 dies to create the bloom, each one sliding into the other from smallest to largest, then the stamen last. I have kept this one white as my first attempt, but it really is glorious just like that.

I stamped one of the images in Magenta Madness ink onto the same colour card base. The vellum layer is die cut and added with a couple of strips of Designer Paper over the top before adding the bloom on dimensionals. This made it easy to add some green leaves underneath where you want them.

Both sentiments are from the Peaceful Moments stamp set, stamped in Magenta Madness ink. The 60 is die cut from the retired Little Numbers dies, but there are some new ones in the annual catalogue, which I don’t have just yet.

Ornate Garden Suite is stunning

Tonight’s card uses the Ornate Garden Suite – an early release from the upcoming Annual catalogue, available now 😁

I love that we are able to get a little insight into the new catalogue before we receive a hard copy and all the new products that will become available.

Look at this amazing embossed background – Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder. It adds wonderful texture to the card.

I used silver foil and die cut the frame using the stunning Ornate Layers Dies. You can add these dies to your order now too! I love how the Medium Daisy punch coordinates so well with this suite and those Perennial Essence Floral centres!

On the inside I die cut the pretty Ornate Border die and left the card without a sentiment, as I’m not sure who will receive this card as yet. I think it could be used for just about any occasion though, don’t you?
