CCBH Pear Pizzazz: Hello Ladybug

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 34 – Pear Pizzazz

I have to say, I am in love with this bundle! The Hello Ladybug stamp set and Ladybug builder Punch are a fantastic buy and I have had so much fun creating with it (one I will definitely be keeping).

I began my card with a Pear Pizzazz Watercolour wash using the inkpad and the largest of the Water Painters. I wanted a fairly light tone, so used plenty of water. Once it was dry, I stamped the two large leaves and the sentiment.

The ladybug wings were stamped in Real Red and Memento Black ink and punched out. The main body was punched from a piece of the Simply Marbleous DSP (free Saleabration item with $90 product order). I added glue to the wings just in the centre, so I could lift them up so they look like they are about to fly! These were then added to the card with dimensionals.

Finally I added the three small dots stamp for extra interest. I repeated this process on the inside too!

Then I did another one with Magenta Madness! How cute is this?!!! Instead of stamping the large leaves, I used the wings on the punch to create some Pear Pizzazz leaves. I stamped some Magenta Madness flowers and added the Iridescent Gems to the centres.

For these ladybugs, I punched the body in Basic Black cardstock for a lovely dark look which really pops against the Pear Pizzazz.

Open the card and find a surprise ladybug inside!

Here’s how I mounted the ladybug inside, folding up a strip of card. I just folded it equally 4 times to create a square and then glue it to the inside. Then the leaves and the ladybug were glued into place!

Diorama Fancy Fold card with Forever Greenery and Butterfly Beauty

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining the Colour Creations Showcase to bring you creative inspiration to showcase our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours.

Week 33 – Pear Pizzazz

This is a Diorama fancy fold card that will fold into a C6 envelope, however because of the thickness, it is better in a 16cm² envelope.

The base is Thick White cardstock and the front is Pear Pizzazz cardstock.

The Forever Greenery patterned paper is perfect for the feature background with the Champagne Foil butterflies [Butterfly Beauty Thinlits]. The Layering Ovals Framelits were used to cut the window and the frame.

The bubbles [Beauty Abounds] are stamped in Pear Pizzazz ink and the sentiment is from the Butterfly Gala stamp set. This was stamped 3 times using the Stamparatus to get that darker tone.

Markers for Colouring

Blendabilities

Hello Crafters,

If you don’t know it yet, I brought home lots of yummy new products from the Stampin’ Up! Convention which will be available in the new 2014-2015 Annual Catalogue.

Over the next month or so, I will share with you, loads of ideas created using some of the new products. Are you excited??!!

Well here is the first one ~ Blended Bloom Stamp coloured with Blendabilities (alcohol based ink), ideal for shading!

Blended Bloom Blendabilities

The card base is Pear Pizzazz cardstock. The Blended Bloom is stamped with the new Black Memento Ink on Whisper White cardstock.  I coloured the image with the new Calypso Coral Blendabilities and used my So Saffron & Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Markers for the centre. I then fussy cut the image.

I stamped the leaves (from Kinda Eclectic Stamp Set) in Pear Pizzazz ink onto Whisper White cardstock and layered it to the base with dimensionals. I added the Blended Bloom image with dimensionals also.

Here is a close up of the image.

Blendabilities Blended Bloom

The ribbon is Victoria Crochet Trim layered over Natural Chevron Ribbon and tied in the centre with a piece of Calypso Coral Twine and adhered to the card with glue dots.

I am in love with Blendabilities and cannot wait to add more colours to my collection.

What Sets Them Apart:

  • The Stampin’ Up! rectangular barrel keeps your markers from rolling away!
  • Flat storage helps to maintain the life of each marker.
  • Each marker comes with a tip on each end: brush and fine.
  • Marker tips are made of nylon, which is superior to polyester which can fray.
  • Colour coded caps.
  • Stampin’ Up! markers coordinate wonderfully with our cardstock, and can be used with transparent sheets.
