Week 13 AWH Colour Creations Blog Hop - Crumb Cake

Crumb Cake

Crumb cake 2

Today's card is one of the hard cards we need to make, a sympathy card. Words really are never enough, but they are important to say to the people you care about. I don't think there is any better way to say those words from afar, than with a handmade card.

Stampin Up Rooted in Nature 2018 sympathy card. Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

I have used the Rooted in Nature stamp set from the 2018 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue.  I created a water wash onto Shimmery White cardstock with a few drops of re-inker and my aquapainter. I used Crumb Cake for the ground, and Pool Party for the sky and Shaded Spruce for the tree. I added a few ink splatters and water splatters for added interest.

The sentiment is also from the Rooted in Nature stamp set, and is stamped in Soft Suede to stand out a little more against the Crumb Cake. Here is my colour combination.

I hope the recipient of this card can feel the love and caring thoughts for them that it hopefully conveys. 

Now it's time to head back to Catherine Proctor's blog  to see what the other Art With Heart team ladies have been creating with Crumb Cake this week.

Thanks for stopping by today,

Claire

Stampin' Up! Lovely as a Tree with Brusho Micropowders

Today I decided to show you another card with Brusho, this time a sympathy or get well card using Stampin' Up! Lovely as a Tree. I have used the Gamboge pot of Brusho for this card.

Brusho 1

I really love the effect I got with the Brusho as a bright sky or sunset. I am not sure how that small circular gap happened but I quite like that it did, as it kind of looks like a sun or moon. I did the Brusho piece first (again just sprinkling Brusho onto the watercolor paper which I had sprayed a few times with a water mister). When that was dry, I over stamped the Brusho with the the image from Lovely as Tree stamp set using Early Espresso ink. My greeting is from Flourishing Phrases stamp set. I have used  the 1 3/4" circle punch for the greeting and then cut a 2" circle from Copper Foil Cardstock to mat it (I used the Circle Layering Framelits for this step). I carried the Copper Foil Cardstock mat to the stamped image too, and the base card is just Early Espresso.

Here's a bit more about how to use Brusho. You can purchase it in my online store using the links at the end of the post.

 

Have fun playing with Brusho.

Art With Heart Team Showcase: 8 ways with the Stampin' Up! Rose Wonder Stamp set / Rose Garden Thinlets.

Hello crafty friends.

Myself and many of the clever ladies in my Art With Heart Stampin' Up! team have been playing with the Rose Wonder stamp set and Rose Garden Thinlit Dies from the 2016 Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalogue.

8 ways to use the Stampin' Up! Rose Wonder Stamp set and Rose Garden Thinlets from the Occasions 2016 Catalogue. Cards by the Art With Heart Team, Australia

 

These two products coordinate perfectly and if you buy them together as a bundle you save 15% (Tip: when you order a bundle make sure you use the bundle code and not just the two individual codes). Here's a look at the products:

Rose Wonder Stamp Set

Rose Garden Thinlits

 

Now here's a look at some of the way we have used this bundle. This one is by me, I chose to just use the Framelits here. My DSP is from the Love Blooms DSP stack, and my color are Crumb Cake and Rose Red. My greeting is from Party with Cake, which is one of my favourites birthday greeting sets at the moment (LOVE the typewriter font).

My colour scheme is Rose Red and Crumb Cake, with the patterned paper from the Love Blossoms DSP stack. My greeting is from Party with Cake stamp set because I am totally in love with the typewriter font and all the birthday sentiments in this set.

This next card is by Kathryn Mangledorf in South Australia, Kathryn has used the inside cut outs from the Framelits. Learn how on Kathryn's blog post about this card here. Kathryn does regular classes in the Adelaide Hills.

These next two are by Rachel Woollard, who does regular classes and catalogue launches in Ringwood East Victoria. I particularly love how Rachel has layered the stamped and die cut leaves on this first card.

Patterned DSP make a fabulous backing for the die cut rose too.

These two cards were  created by Genna Gifford in Pakenham, for her recent catalogue launch. Isn't this amazing? Genna does classes and catalogue launches.

This bundle also is a great one for making sympathy cards. Here's another card by Genna.

Ros Davidson is another team member who does classes in Skye, south east Melbourne. Ros loved Genna's first card, and wanted to case it.

Finally, here's another card by me. In this card I only wanted to use the single branch from the Framelits.

Stampin' Up! Serene Silhouettes with a watercolour wash background

Today's card is for a friend who needs a cuddle by mail this week. Thinking of you handmade cards do that just perfectly I think, don't you?

Serene Silhouettes stampin up

How I created this card:

  • The shadow effect with the tree was a happy accident! I stamped the image first in Stazon (that I clearly needed to re-ink!) and when it didn't turn out as solid as I liked, I embossed another one a little off centre using black embossing powder.
  • The watercolour background was done before I stamped and embossed (make sure it's completely dry). I used Rich Razzleberry and Crushed Curry and the Aquapen with the ink from inside the stamp pad lid for the wash (make it nice and watery for this effect). 
  • The base card is Crushed Curry and the next layer Primrose Petals embossed with the Elegant Stripes embossing folder (which sadly I only realised hasn't carried over until after I finished my card - sorry!)
  • My greeting is from Teeny Tiny Sentiments (if you only get one sentiment set - this is the one and all the greetings fit perfectly in the Word Window Punch.

Here's a look at the Stampin' Up! products I have used (click each item number link and it will take you to that item in my online Stampin' Up! store.
