Art with Heart Blog Hop: Retiring Products 2018

Dear Crafters,

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring products from the last chance products list. There are lots of products to choose from with retiring stamp sets, inkpads and ink refills guaranteed to be available until 7 May (and all other products while supplies last). Contact anyone on the blog hop to place your last chance order today.
If you’re already hopping, then you just came to me from the lovely, Monika. 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!

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing our favourite retiring products and mine is definitely the Watercolour Wings stamp set and coordinating dies, Bold Butterfly framelits & Butterflies thinlits.

I have also used 3 of my favourite retiring colours; Island Indigo, Pink Pirouette, Rose Red, and I will miss them, however there are some new stunning colours to replace them. Yay!

The 1/8″ metallic gold ribbon is also retiring, so make sure you get some of that added to your shopping cart. I have used it on the Rose Red card above in horizontal stripes. I also added Versamark ink to the centre of the butterfly as well as sponged it around the edges of the Rose Red card, added some Gold embossing powder and heat set it for added shine. I used my Fine Tip glue pen to add to the dots on the butterfly, gold embossing powder and heat set!

My next card uses the same products but I have teamed it up with the stunning Painted with Love DSP which will also retire on 31st May. It has this amazing gold through it. This card is a pop through card, where the butterfly slides through the slit when you open it!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Dear Crafters,

Naturally today, I have to share a valentine’s day card, using product from the Painted with Love Suite, consisting of the Sure Do Love You stamp set and the Lots to Love Box Framelits dies from the Occasions catalogue. Purchase these as a bundle and you save 10%.

I don’t know if the man in your life is like mine and isn’t into too much fancy stuff on cards, so this card today is very simple. We actually don’t even celebrate Valentine’s Day, but what the heck, I have this bundle and so I’ve made something small.

I have also used the Painted Love Gold Vinyl Stickers, which coordinate with this bundle, on the front and inside of this card!

Exploding Handbag, Painted with Love

Dear Crafters,

Another project we made at my craft class last Saturday, was the Exploding Handbag card, using the Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper from the Occasions catalogue. The ladies loved it and these papers looked stunning in this 3D project. Class attendees are given a written tutorial to take home so they can recreate the project in their own time.

We used a different sheet of paper from the SDSP pack with a coordinating piece of card for the top. Every single project was stunning!!

Can you see that these papers have the gorgeous gold shine through them? We used the gold foil for the handles, as well as gold foil and glimmer for the embellishments.

To make this project, you need a full sheet of 12″ x 12″ and there is very little cutting involved. In fact, the only cutting is for the handle, embellishments and the top of the bag!

Here is another one I made recently using the Year of Cheer SDSP from the recent Holiday catalogue.

and this is what it looks like when it’s open! So as you can see, it is a full sheet of 12″ x 12″ just folded. The only extra thing I added, that won’t be listed below in the product list, is some velcro dots, which I cut in half and added as the closure!

I got my inspiration for this from Amanda Charlesworth, a UK SU demonstrator. You can see Amanda’s post here.
