Sweet Sorbet Dutch Fold Card

2022-23 CCBH Logo

Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining  the Colour Creations Blog Hop to bring you creative inspiration showcasing our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours in alphabetical order.

Week 4 – Sweet Sorbet

Tonight we showcase our fourth of the new 2022-2024 In Colors, Sweet Sorbet!

This colour reminds me a bit of a retired colour, Strawberry Slush (2013-2015 In Color) although this is slightly darker. I have used Sweet Sorbet with Parakeet Party, another new in Color this year. The Bottled Happiness Bundle (Bottled Happiness stamp set and coordinating Vintage Bottle punch) features on my card, along with two designs from the In Color Designer Series Paper 6×6 Pack.

Using the Stitched Rectangle dies to cut two in Parakeet Party and Basic White card, and stamping the feature images on the white layer. These stamps are photopolymer, so you can stamp the first layer in Sweet Sorbet and easily line up the next leafy image in Parakeet Party and the bottle.

Can you see those lovely In Color Matte Decorative Dots? They are a lovely touch along with the Sweet Sorbet Metallic Woven Ribbon tied in a bow!

I was inspired by Jan B (UK demonstrator) and followed her measurements, although I used different products, but I like the way the centre feature sits between the Dutch fold doors to stand up to display.

Thanks for dropping by. I hope you can join me next week for our 5th new In Color, Tahitian Tide!

Please hop across to our next participant and enjoy the wonderful inspiration of Rachel Palmieri!

Never Ending Card

Hello Crafters,

I have made my first ever 30 second video and it is terrible but thought I would share it anyway, as I found it very hard to show you in pictures how this card works!

It is the never ending folding card, so as you open it, it just keeps on opening. Watch the video and you will see it in action.

I have used the gorgeous, but now retired, Sweet Sorbet DSP with Crisp Cantaloupe cardstock. I haven’t yet finished decorating and embellishing it yet, but you get the gist of what is going on here!

Here is the front of the card

Jan-Jun Mini Catalogue and Sale-a-bration

Sweet Sorbet Sunburst Baby

Hello Crafters,

Well, it’s not long now until the Occasions Catalogue and Sale-a-bration begins on 28th January!

Here is another sneak peek at some of the items that will be available.

This Sunburst technique is so easy to create and it showcases a variety of the papers in the Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper pack, which includes the colours: Crisp Canteloupe, Pistachio Pudding, Basic Black, Whisper White, Pool Party, Summer Starfruit & Sahara Sand.

I have also used one of the stamps in the Baby, We’ve Grown stamp set available in the new Occasions Catalogue. The other is from That’s the Ticket, stamped in Pistachio Pudding and cut out with paper snips, then adhered with dimensionals.

My card matt is Sahara Sand on a white card base and the circle was punched out twice with the 2 1/2″ circle punch.

I used the coordinating Stampin’ Write Markers to colour the image.

I hope you like my baby card showcasing some new products available from 28th January!

Happy Crafting,

Simple Stems, part 1

Hello Stampers,

As you know, I am having loads of fun playing with my new supplies from the Sale-a-bration brochure & Occasions catalogue.

Here are some more lovely samples using the Simple Stems Stamp Set which is in the new Occasions Catalogue, available for purchase from 28th January. Just let me know if you would like a copy of the catalogues mailed to you prior to the sale starting!

The gorgeous background papers are delightful and I am finding it really hard to choose between the different packs, so I got a pack of each!!!

Sweet Sorbet is from the Sale-a-bration brochure which if you place an order of $90 or more, you can get a packet for free!

Water Colour Wonder is in the soon to be released Occasions Catalogue and is to die for.

The stamp set, Simple Stems, also has two of its images that coordinate with the Secret Garden Framelits Dies.

Okay, so now for some samples ~ In this first card I used the Water Colour Wonder DSP and stamped the images in Pistachio Pudding and Crisp Canteloupe.
