CCBH Gray Granite – Plentiful Plants

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 21 – Gray Granite

Tonight I am using the Plentiful Plants Bundle which I got for my birthday recently! I don’t have any of the patterned papers that coordinate with it, but I found some leafy designs in the Christmas papers, Painted Christmas DSP that was perfect, along with the In Good Taste DSP.

The macrame hanging basket was die cut using the In Good Taste DSP. The same pattern is in the background across the card. The pot is stamped in Gray Granite ink and the plants in Soft Succulent ink. The scallop border die is from the Contours dies, set to be a firm favourite!

The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink, White Emboss Powder added and heat set with my Heat Tool. I added a gorgeous Soft Succulent Open Weave Ribbon bow and In Color Jewels.

On the inside, I added some more coordinating plants in a plant stand in the bottom corner.

Christmas Season Pinecones & Berries

Heart of Christmas Blog Header 2021

Each Monday evening until mid-December, I am taking part in the Heart of Christmas blog hop showcasing our amazing range of holiday products from the Annual and July-December Mini catalogues. Please hop along and enjoy some fabulous inspiration from our talented team!

I was pleased with this card as it came together. I adore that pretty patterned DSP with the berries (Painted Christmas), so that was my starting point for this card, as I built up the background layers.

Christmas Season Seasons Greetings by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2021

I stamped some of the berries (Real Red & Evening Evergreen ink) to compliment the patterned paper and some greenery (Soft Succulent & Evening Evergreen inks), but it still needed more, so I stamped four pinecones in Crumb Cake and Early Espresso inks.

Christmas to Remember Tag Card

Each Monday evening until mid-December, I am taking part in the Heart of Christmas blog hop showcasing our amazing range of holiday products from the Annual and July-December Mini catalogues. Please hop along and enjoy some fabulous inspiration from our talented team!

Tonight I have a card very similar to one Michele shared recently. I got these Tailor Made Tags dies for my birthday at the end of August and couldnt wait any longer to get them out and have have a play.

This gorgeous patterned paper, Painted Christmas, is beautiful on both sides of each sheet. I used the red foil from the Red & Green Foil Sheets pack along the top and bottom edges of the paper behind the tags. One tag is cut with the pincecone paper and the top tag just has a small section across the bottom, leaving room for the stamped sentiment (Christmas to Remember stamp set) in Evening Evergreen ink. The Early Espresso Faux Suede Trim and small piece of retired gold thread are placed through the top of the tags.

One the tags were tied together, I added some dimensionals and adhered them to the card, before adding some 2021–2023 In Color Jewels to complete my card.

HOC Week 4 – Sneak Peek of Christmas Season

Heart of Christmas Blog Header 2021

Each Monday evening until mid-December, I am taking part in the Heart of Christmas blog hop showcasing our amazing range of holiday products from the Annual and July-December Mini catalogues. Please hop along and enjoy some fabulous inspiration from our talented team!

Tonight I am using some of the products from the Painted Christmas Suite.

Painted Christmas DSP JD21

The Christmas Season Bundle will no doubt be a popular bundle this year. With its holly, berries and pinecones, it suits all crafters worldwide. Underneath the Designer Paper on this card, I am using the pre-printed Gingerbread & Peppermint Memories & More Cards and Envelopes again for a quick and easy start to this card.

Christmas Season Bundle, Stampin Up 2021 by Kate Morgan, Australia

The Painted Christmas 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper is cut with the Stitched So Sweetly dies for the bottom layer. The holly are stamped in Garden Green ink, the leaves are Pear Pizzazz ink and the berries are Real Red ink. The other leaves are stamped in Versamark ink, Heat & Stick Powder added and heat set with the Heat Tool, then Gilded Leafing added and gently rubbed with a sponge dauber to remove the excess. Doesn’t it add a gorgeous touch of elegance?!!

Some Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots were added to finish it off. The sentiment for this card is from the new Peaceful Deer stamp set.
