Art With Heart Team March Creative Showcase: Monochromatic Cards

AWHT Showcase Logo Rectangle

Welcome to the March Art with Heart Stampin' Up! Team Creative Showcase. This month the Art With Heart Team are featuring Monochromatic cards, that is cards that only use different shades of the same colour. This is a great opportunity for us to demonstrate the wonderful range of Stampin’ Up! colours across our inks, papers and embellishments that can be combined to produce the amazing monochromatic samples we have to share with you. To be honest, I found this quite challenging as I am so used to creating with multiple colours.

Here's what I came up with using Rooted in Nature stamp set from the Annual Catalogue. I didn't realise my sentiment wasn't wonky until I edited the pictures, so another post photo correction (I'm on a roll the last week!).

This card is for a lovely man, who lost his wife of 50+ years last week. His wife was a lovely lady, with family values that I admired greatly, I can't imagine his feeling of loss, but I hope my words provide comfort in the months to come.

Stampin Up Monochromatic Rooted in Nature Sympathy card by Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

Here are the steps I took to make my card:

  1. I started with a piece of Shimmery White cardstock 10cm x 14.3cm.
  2. Using a Stampin' Sponge, I started lightly building up colour by spongeing in a circular motion. I started with Soft Sea Foam at the top, then Pear Pizazz and then Old Olive. I wanted the look of a hill which is why I sponged on an angle in a soft curve.
  3. As I was spongeing and going over the edges, this also provided some ink definition on the edges which I liked.
  4. Using an aquapainter, I squeezed a little water from the nib onto some scrap cloth, then flicked the excess off as I didn't want the drops too large. Then I flicked a couple of times onto the sponged piece to create the droplet effect.
  5. I stamped the tree from Rooted in Nature once in Mossy Meadow, and then again without reinking.
  6. My words are stamped in Old Olive onto some scrap Shimmery White which has been lightly sponged,
  7. Finally I tied a little linen thread around the bottom of the card and secured with tape on the back.
  8. I then adhered the whole cardfront onto a base Mossy Meadow card.

Before I made the card above, I came up with this one for my Monochromatic card. I wasn't 100% happy, so I made another card, but thought I would post this one too. I think I would use it as a retirement card for a male perhaps?

This card uses the Timeless Tropical bundle. I have used Crumb Cake, Soft Suede and Early Espresso.

Product List

The Holiday Catalogue ends soon - see what is retiring & what is carrying over.

It will soon be time to say goodbye to the 2019 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue.

Holiday Catalogue Cover 2019 b

Today Stampin' Up! released the lists of what is retiring and what is carrying over in some way to 2020.


Retiring Products

First let's look at what is retiring. These products are now only available while stocks last. They have been grouped together in a section on the website called Year End Closeout Sale. Not everything is on sale, but there are some great discounts on great products (up to 30% off).

View the Year End Closeout Sale / Retiring Holiday Catalogue Product in my online store.

If there is anything here you like the look of, get in before it is gone for good. Don't forget to use the December Host Code for a free new catalogue gift in mid January.

December 19 Host Code

If you would prefer to just look at a list of what's retiring, you can find that here. As the products are only available while stocks last, I can't guarantee that things will still be in stock, but you can contact me and I will check for you.

Products which are Carrying Over

I have a PDF list of products which are carrying over which you can download in a tic, but first I wanted to draw your attention to a few important points.

  1. Even if the 2 products in a bundle are carrying over, the current 10% off bundle pricing is only available until January 2nd. After that you pay full price for each separate item.
  2. Some of the items will continue to be available to be ordered, but something new is being trialled this year. There is a selection of products (marked with an asterisk on the list) that are going into 'hibernation' where they won't be orderable from 3rd January, but will reappear in the 2020 Holiday Catalogue (along with a whole lot of new stuff too!).

Stampin' Up! Heart of Christmas Week 12 - Sharing the joy of a handmade Christmas.

Heart of christmas 2019 full size


Welcome to week 12 of Heart of Christmas from the Art with Heart Stampin' Up! Team. We hope you are feeling inspired by these weekly blog hops.

This week I have showcased some more cards using the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley that I also created with last week. I'm finding it so quick and easy to create using this medley.

This one uses one of my most favourite pieces of DSP from this kit. I love the subtle colours with the hint of gold foil on the antlers.

I love the touch of festive that the white and gold trim brings to this medley. I love those berries on the stickers too. I didn't do it on this one, but it would be great to add Crystal Effects to these.

This one is a little more clean and simple. I used an oval template to create a Seaside Spray sponged oval and then stamped the trees over the top of that.

I hope this has given you some more ideas about how to use the Most Wonderful Time product medley. It's a great collection of coordinating products and super easy to create with as it has everything you need.
