Week 11 AWH Stampin' Up! Team Colour Creations Blog Hop: Cherry Cobbler

Welcome to another week of Colour Creations from the Art With Heart team. This week we are playing with Cherry Cobbler, which is a perfect reason to start my 2018 Christmas cards as well.

Cherry Cobbler

I have used the lovely Blended Seasons bundle again. I'm SO sad I only get to show you this in August, because I totally love it!  It's so perfect for colouring and very versatile for different cards. I love the Framelit shapes too, and that super cool double stitching feature which leaves stitching on the negative piece as well.

I had actually meant to pop a metallic pearl or red rhinestone either end of the greeting, but realised while editing that I forgot - oops! What you might be able to see is some of the new Merry Merlot glimmer paper which is coming up in the Holiday Catalogue - love! For the colouring on this one, I have used Blender Pens and the ink from the inside lid of my Classic Ink Pads in Call Me Clover, Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler.

I have also used the Sheet Music background stamp in a super haphazard way on the background. To do that:

  1. Ink up your background stamp and lay it inked side up
  2. Press your card front down onto the stamp in various sections, including turning the card on angles and leaving parts out

I hope you like today's card. Don't forget you only have until the end of August to get your hands on the Blended Seasons stamp set and Stitched Seasons Framelits. Check out the links at the end of the post. 

Now it's time to head back to the blog of my lovely team member Catherine Proctor, so you can see the other Cherry Cobbler creations from the Art With Heart Team ladies.

Thanks for stopping by today, have a fabulous week.

Friendship's Sweetest Thoughts

Today I have a sweet coloured card for you using one of the retiring 2018 Occasions Catalogue stamp sets called Friendship's Sweetest Thoughts.

Stampin Up Friendships Sweetest Thoughts crd by Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia #stampinup #clairedaly #occasions2018 #australia #stampinupdemo #stampinupaustralia

I coloured this one with Watercolour pencils, including the Lemon Lime Twist one which came inside the Lots of Happy Card Kit. I'm going to be super sad to see to see the Smoky Slate Gingham Ribbon go. It's one of my favourites and is great for baby cards too.

Stampin' Up! Seaside Shore with Brusho micropowders.

Hello again.

Today I have a fun card for you where I have used our Prussian Blue Brusho (just sprinkled onto watercolour paper that I had misted well with water), as a background for this fun ocean themed card.

Brusho 2

I really love the random patterns that the Brusho creates when it hits the damp paper.  The Prussian Blue is a perfect colour for the look of the ocean too. I have teamed it with Lemon Lime Twist, Tangerine Tango and Basic Black to create this card. I have also used some of our Glitter and Clear Epoxy Shapes (link at end of post) to create dimension for bubbles.

Brusho 2z

I hope you like today's card. Seaside Shore is such a fun stamp set to create with.

Have a happy and creative day,

Claire

Stampin' Up! All Inclusive Lots of Happy Cardmaking Kit

All inclusive kits are one of the first things I always seem to be attracted to in new catalogues, and the lots of Happy Kit in the Stampin' Up! 2018 Occasions Catalogue is no exception. I think I love the kits because I can grab them and sit at the kitchen table, or even the lounge coffee table and have everything I need in the cute little box, rather than sitting away from the family while I craft. I also love the simplicity and the variety in the kits.

This kit contains everything you need to make 20 cards (envelopes included too) with 4 each of 5 designs. There is a full colour leaflet showing how each card is put together. It even includes the pencils for the colouring. You can also buy refills for the kits too.

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Sentiments for Art With Heart team HOC 24

Hello ladies. Today the Art with Heart Team is bringing you week 24 of Heart of Christmas.

Graphic

Today's card is created using the Snowflake Sentiments bundle from the 2017 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue. I really like the simplicity of this card.

Stampin Up Snowflake Sentiments stamp set and Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits. Christmas card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

Before I cut the snowflakes, I created a watercolour wash using Pool Party and Island Indigo ink on watercolor paper. Once it was throughly dry (with the help of my trusty heat tool), I cut the snowflakes from pieces which had variations in colour (tip: the biggest snowflake is from the border die piece and 'detached' with paper snips). Then it was just a matter of attaching them with a glue dot and embellishing with Glimmer Dots and adhesive Rhinestones. My greeting from Snowflake Sentiments is heat embossed in silver.
