I'm excited to have had some time on the weekend to create a card for our Art with Heart Stampin' Up! team's Colour Creations weekly blog hop. This week's colour is Rich Razzleberry, one of my favourite colours for many years. It's a beautiful deep purple pink colour, and a member of our Regals collection.

My card is a watercolour scene. I haven't played with the lovely Grace's Garden stamp set for so long, and Rich Razzleberry made me think of deep pink/purple  Hollyhock flowers, so that's what I went with. My scene is made on watercolour paper, with a Crumb Cake mat, and adhered with Dimensionals onto a Rich Razzleberry card base. The card base has also been embossed with the Subtle 3D embossing folder.

I have used Rich Razzleberry, Gorgeous Grape and Bumblebee for my flower colours and Garden Green for the foliage. The gate is a combination of Crumb Cake and Soft Suede, the cat is watercoloured in Gray Granite and the bird is Early Espresso with a teeny bit of diluted Real Red on the tummy. For the foreground, I have used a watercolor wash of Sahara Sand and for the sky I have used my blending brushes and Pool Party for a very light sky effect.

To finish off my card, I have added some Linen Thread, and stamped the 'Hello' sentiment from Graces Garden stamp set, in Early Espresso. I also added a metallic heart brad that has been sitting in my scrapbooking stash for many many years.

Here's a closer look at the goregous Graces Garden stamp set from the 2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. I love how you can use the images either individually or to make your own garden scene.

Art With Heart Stampin' Up! Team Monthly Stampin' Up! Showcase: Sketch Challenge

AWHT Showcase Logo Rectangle

It's time to get creative with the Art With Heart team girls on our monthly creative showcase. This month we are working with a sketch challenge designed by our lovely showcase coordinator Rachel Woollard. I'm looking forward to seeing how the Art With Heart team girls interpret this sketch.

Team sketch challenge

I'm using some new catalogue products (coming on 3rd June) for my card today. I have used the Tasteful Touches bundle and In Good Taste Designer Series Paper from the In Good Taste suite. This is such a gorgeous suite of products full of texture, and with a warm colour scheme which can be adjusted for feminine or masculine themed creations.

To create additional texture on my card (I LOVE texture!) I have embossed the front of my card (after I adhered the patterned paper) with the Old World Paper embossing folder which is an amazing new 3D folder coming on June 3rd as well. I also popped some Braided Linen Trim behind the circle. My flower is watercoloured using Rococo Rose and Rich Razzleberry.

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.

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.

Art With Heart Team October Blog Hop: Ways to use Stampin' Up! Embossing Folders

Art With Heart Stampin Up Team October Blog Hop Embossing Folders

Hey there. Welcome to another Art With Heart Blog Hop. This month we are featuring Stampin' Up's! versatile range of Embossing Folders. There are new Embossing Folders available in every Stampin' Up! catalogue and they are an inexpensive way of adding WOW! to your projects. Currently there are 24 different Embossing Folders in the range.

Tonight we plan on showing you lots of ideas on how to use these folders. My projects are using the Heirloom Frames Dies and coordinating embossing folders.

Woven Heirlooms Dies and Embossing Folders Stampin Up

I have used these products to create some faux wood antique photo frames, which I have used on a scrapbook page and a card. I love how they turned out and they were super easy to make.

Ian page 7

I used the woodgrain 12x12" paper in the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper. I adhered this onto some backing cardstock before I cut the frames.

Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper

The steps to make the frames are:

  1. Adhere the woodgrain DSP to the backing card.
  2. Cut the frames first using the dies.
  3. Place the cut dies in the embossing folders, paying particular attention to which parts you wanted raised. As these are 3D folders, I recommend using the 3D embossing plate (link at bottom of page) to give extra ooomph to the sandwich and a good impression.
  4. Remove the frames, and then sponge Early Espresso ink over the raised pieces, building up to the desired shade.

Now it's time to use the frames. My first project is a heritage style scrapbook page with some childhood photos of myself and my brother, who died 12 years ago. I love these photos, and I think he would forgive me for scrapbooking them in floral papers and pink, lol.

I have used more of the Pressed Petals DSP on the page (I adhered the backing page oto Crumb Cake cardstock, ditressing the edges and spongeing with Early Espresso ink), as well as some of the coordinating Pressed Petals specialty washi tape, metal Designer Elements and a page from the coordinating Pressed Petals journal (the pages are perforated so can be torn off and added to scrapbook pages or cards).  The die-cut 'Forever' word is from the Sweet Silhouettes die set (links below the post).

As an extra embellishment, I created a vintage looking daisy with the Medium Daisy Punch and some Very Vanilla cardstock, which I sponged with Rococo Rose ink and a touch of Early Espresso to age it a bit. Love those Perennial Essence floral centres to give a realistic look to the daisy.

How beautiful is that vintage washi tape from the Pressed Petals Designer Washi tape. I also added a few subtle butterflies around the page which were cut from the Pressed Petals DSP using the Butterfly Duet punch. Now I just need to add the journaling to my page.

My second project is a Christmas card, using the rectangle frame and Toile Christmas stamp set from the Holiday Catalogue.

I have watercoloured the images on our awesome Fluid 100 cotton watercolour paper. I've used Real Red, Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso and Garden Green ink and an Aquapainter. I've added a couple of Garden Green die cut pieces from the Leaf punch. The backing piece of DSP is from Toile Tidings.

I hope you have enjoyed my projects today. Now it's time to leave the Yarra Valley region on the outskirts of Melbourne and visit the very clever Catherine Proctor in the Northern Beaches area of Sydney.
