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.

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.

Birthday, Designer/Patterned/Specialty Papers (DSP), Handmade Cards, Kids Cards, Stampin' Up!

Icypoles are a favourite in my house!

Today’s card is very simple to create, as the background DSP does all the work for you! This is the reverse side of one of the sheets in the Ice Cream Corner 12″ x 12″ patterned paper pack.

Who doesn’t love an icypole on a warm day?!!! Well it’s a long weekend in Melbourne this weekend and the weather is warming up again, so I’m sure my kids will be wanting some icypoles to cool down.

Sweet Ice Cream card by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Auaralia 2021

The icypoles are stamped in Mango Melody and Magenta Madness and the stick is Crumb Cake ink. Once I stamped both the icypoles, I fussy cut them and adhered them with dimensionals. The same is done with the sentiment stamped in Bermuda Bay to match the background.

The Square Vellum Doilies add some softness to the bold background so the icypoles stand out more.
