CCBH Calypso Coral – In the Round In Symmetry

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 9 – Calypso Coral

Tonight I am using the In Symmetry stamp set, but I don’t have the coordinating designer paper yet, it’s on its way. It doesn’t really matter though, as I have come up with my own colour combination!

Colour Combination - Calypso Coral

I covered my Thick Basic White 5″ x 10″ (folded in half) card base with a piece of the Calypso Coral paper from the Subtles 6″ x6″ DSP pack. Then I cut a layer of Basic Black card to 4¼” x 4¼” and the Thick Basic White layer is 4″ x 4″ to stamp on, using the Stamparatus and the Stamping in the Round (SITR) technique to get the lovely uniform pattern.

I stamped the four Calypso Coral flowers again on some scrap card and fussy cut them out to layer on top with dimensionals for extra depth, before adding a Champagne Rhinestone Jewel to each one. On each of the hearts I added some Wink of Stella. Before gluing the Black and White layers together, I swiped the Calypso Coral inkpad around the edges of the white card.

Using the Stamparatus, and a template I created myself, I placed the 4″ x 4″ piece of white card on top of the template. Starting with the house image, stamp it once, rotate the card 90o, stamp again and repeat the process. The I placed the tree and the stars in position and repeated the process.

Once all the stamping is done, I then coloured the images with Stampin’ Blends Markers.

The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Christmas Greetings stamp set and cut out with the 1½” circle punch and layered onto a Misty Moonlight die cut from the Tasteful Labels dies.

Christmas, Handmade Cards, Stampin' Up!

Cherish the Season SITR

Christmas is definitely going to be a different Christmas this year. With the pandemic causing chaos, we are still not out of Stage 4 isolation here in Melbourne. Luckily the weather was rather cold, windy and raining for much of the weekend, so it kept us indoors. Thankfully I have lots of hobbies to keep me occupied 😉

This card uses the Stamparatus and the Cherish the Season stamp set in this lovely combination of colour.

I set up the largest of the bells in the Stamparatus, stamped it once in Gray Granite, before rotating the 4″ x 4″ card 90 degrees and stamping it again, continuing this process of stamping in the round (SITR). Then I added the smaller bell and repeated the process.

Once the stamping was complete, I used the Wink of Stella to colour all the bells (unfortunately the photos don’t show the amazing glimmer it gives). Then I added some colour with Gray Granite and Merry Merlot, picking up some colour from the inkpad using the Wink of Stella.

The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink, white emboss powder added and then heat set. It was cut out using the Rectangle Stitched dies. The tiny bell is die cut in Silver Foil and added with a dimensionals and a little white twine bow added.

The mat layer of Merry Merlot card was embossed with the Scripty 3D embossing folder before being glued to the card base and the centre layer glued on top.

Favourite Stampin Up AC 2020-21 products Craft with Kate

I started with a white square card base and layered some Just Jade card & patterned paper before stamping on the white card using the Stamp in the Round (SITR) technique.

The centre circle features can be cut from the centre of the two larger layers before gluing them down to the base card to get the most out of your products. The sentiment can also be stamped on the larger Jade card and fussy cut. This was stamped in Versamark ink, White Stampin’ Emboss Powder added and heat set before fussy cutting. This circle feature in the centre is popped up on dimensionals and a couple of 2020-22 In Color Enamel Dots scatted across the card to finish it off.
