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 14 – Crushed Curry

Oh how I love this cute stamp set, Count on Me. I don’t know why it has taken me so long to get it! My thinking was, Crushed Curry reminds me of honey and bears love honey, so lets try and make something work along these lines. I have a niece who is turning one soon, so I had her in mind with this card, as when you open it, you see the word ‘one’.

My card base is Crushed Curry card with a layer of In Good Taste DSP, 5mm smaller than the card front. Add glue just around the edges and adhere this to front of the card, so the centre circle will pop out once you die cut it with the Layering Circle Dies. This is then added to the inside panel.

I stamped the bear image onto Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper using the Stamparatus with Soft Suede ink, then clean the stamp with your Simply Shammy. Then I inked the stamp with the Versamark ink, sprinkled Clear Emboss Powder over it, shake off the excess and heat set it with my Heat Tool. Now it is easier to watercolour without the ink bleeding. I used the Water Painters to colour my bear with Soft Suede ink and the heart with Real Red ink. Once dry, I used Paper Snips to fussy cut it out.

I die cut the words from the Love You More Than dies in Melon Mambo card and the Playful Alphabet dies for the individual letters ‘honey’.

The Scallop circle on the front was die cut using two of the Layering Circle dies, the scallop one being the bigger size to the circle cut previously. They actually sit perfectly inside one another to die cut the Crushed Curry scallop circle in one pass through the die cutting machine. This is added with Multipurpose Glue. Lastly, I added my bear with dimensionals.

CCBH Blackberry Bliss – Pansy Petals 60th Birthday

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.

A blog hop, also known as blog hopping, is to move from one blog to another, continuing in a full circle to read all the posts by participants in the hop. At the end of each post will be a link to continue to the next blog!

Week 5 – Blackberry Bliss

Today I am using the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper to show how it can be used with the Pansy Dies to cut out the images, rather than stamping the pansies.

My card base is Blackberry Bliss as is the stamped ‘Happy Birthday’ sentiment (Sweet Ice cream stamp set) and fussy cut. Behind this is some Gold Foil embossed with the Stitched Greenery Die and added on the diagonal in the centre of the card. The die cut pansies and leaves are placed over the joins to cover them, some on dimensionals for height. Some In Color Jewels are added and the Playful Alphabet dies were used to cut the ’60’ also in Blackberry Bliss so as not to stand out too much (the recipient wouldn’t like that!). Although I did add some Wink of Stella to them!

The white layer on the inside of the card is also decorated with a strip of card and a gold embossed strip like on the front.
