Monthly Creative Showcase: Sketch challenge

AWHT Creative Showcase

For tonight’s showcase, we were given a card sketch as a starting point for inspiration. This is something that I really struggle with, but really wanted to challenge myself to have a go at.

Sketch Challenge

This card is for my Father-in-law birthday so I started with the Well Suited DSP. I chose Pacific Point as my card base and then layered two patterns of the DSP, joining them under the Seaside Spray Scallop Ribbon Trim. The stitched triangles are embossed using the Scripty 3D, Tasteful Textile 3D & Hammered Metal 3D Textured Impressions Embossing Folders. The Happy Birthday (Sweet Ice Cream stamp set) is stamped in Night of Navy ink, fussy cut with Paper Snips then added with Dimensionals.

Thanks to Ros Davidson, I had a go at making some of my own Faux Resin Dots. Using a standard hole punch, I punched some cardstock, placed them onto the Silicone Mat and added some Fine Tip Glue piled up on top. Allow them to dry fully (a few hours), before adding them to your card with a glue dot.

On the inside, I added an offcut of the DSP and stamped the sentiments with Night of Navy ink and the stars with Pacific Point ink.

Colour Creations Showcase – Misty Moonlight – Origami folding and a simple Triangle Christmas card

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 28 – Misty Moonlight

This is such a gorgeous rich blue and I think my favourite blue tone in the Stampin’ Up! colours. I am naturally drawn to blue, being my favourite colour!

Tonight I have two cards for you – the first being a card that I had a bit of fun learning to fold some of our Flowers for Every Season DSP in Origami. It isn’t perfect, but I will practice some more to get those nice clean, crisp folds.

This floral paper is perfect for this fold and I was happy with the final look. The sentiment is from the Seaside Notions stamp set.

I mounted it onto some white card to frame it on the Misty Moonlight woodgrain patterned paper from the In Color DSP Pack. How beautiful are those Beaded Pearl centres?!!  They finish it off nicely.

My next card is a simple Christmas card using the Snowflake Splendor DSP, Stitched Triangle dies and the Christmas Layers dies for the snowflakes.

The Copper Star Designer Elements on top of the trees add a touch of elegance.

Tonight I have a Christmas Angel for you using the Dove of Hope bundle and the Stitched Triangle dies. The card base is White with a layer of Misty Moonlight, then some of the In Good Taste DSP. Check out that texture – it really looks like a painted canvas background!!!!

The Peace, Joy, Love is White heat embossed on Misty Moonlight card, fussy cut and added with mini dimensionals.

To create the Angel – her head is cut out using the 1-1/4″ circle punch which I then put into the Gleaming Ornaments punch to take the top part off for her hair. I coloured this with the Bronze Stampin’ Blends Marker and then glued it back onto the head!

I am terrible at drawing faces, so I used some punches to add some detail. The eyes are punched using the Whale Builder Punch, and her halo is using the Vases Builder Punch in Gold Foil. I did need to draw her tiny mouth using the Blushing Bride Stampin’ Write Marker.

A simple sentiment stamped in Misty Moonlight and a strip of patterned paper and gold foil adhered to the bottom, finishes the card nicely.

Colour Creations Showcase – Coastal Cabana

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Tonight’s Stampin’ Up! colour is Coastal Cabana!

This is such a beautiful colour and it always makes your projects beam with happiness. Today is my youngest daughter’s birthday, and I made this card for her. This is birthday #2 in lockdown!

I used Coastal Cabana as my card base and Coastal Cabana features heavily in the Playing with Patterns Designer Paper.

This is my first time creating with these Stitched Triangle dies and I just love them, especially with this patterned paper. Die cutting many triangles in each of the 3 designs and placing them onto the card with dimensionals so they have some extra height.

I also used the Well Written dies for the sentiment, banners and the butterfly which are glued on top of the triangles on the front of this card.

Don’t forget to decorate the inside with a strip of coordinating patterned paper and in this case, a wonderful sentiment using the Family Party stamp set! I also added a couple of the Purple Posy Butterfly Gems for added interest. Aren’t they sweet?!!!
