Today's card is inspired by my water bottle! It's a lovely ombre pattern in shades of Petal Pink, Polished Pink and Melon Mambo.

Here is my card. I really love how it turned out, even though I kind of made it up as I went along!

My base card is Petal Pink, and the second layer is Petal Pink embossed with the Timeworn Type embossing folder.

Step by Step Instructions for Stamped Piece

  1. I started with a piece of Shimmery White cardstock and I used my blending brushes to lay down some Polished Pink ink in the bottom half, and Petal Pink ink in the top half, with lots of blending at the intersection.
  2. Next I blended a little Melon Mambo right at the bottom.
  3. I embossed the small floral image from Blessings of Home stamp set (in the 2022 January to June Mini Catalogue) in white over the top of the blended ink.
  4. Next I used a water painter (the fine tip one) to remove a lot of the ink colour from the leaves and petals. You just brush with water and it lightens the ink lots as it dries.
  5. Finally I added additional ink colours onto the image. I used Polished Pink and Rich Razzleberry for the flowers and Old Olive for the leaves.

To finish my card, I mounted the stamped piece onto a piece of Basic Gray cardstock, and tucked one of the Heart and Home Doilies underneath (the Basic Gray one). I adhered this with Dimensionals. I stamped the long birthday sentiment from the Blessings of Home stamp set in Basic Grey onto Shimmery white, cut it into strips and adhered with Stampin' Seal. I finished off with a double bow of Grey Granite bakers twine.

Two Stampin' Up! Gray Granite Christmas Cards for Colour Creations.

Colour Creations 2021 to 2022 logo

Hello stampers! I'm playing along with my team Colour Creations blog hop today. We are using one of my very favourite neutral colours, Gray Granite. This is a beautiful 'griege' shade - a little bit grey, a little bit beige.

Since I'm right in the swing of Christmas cards right now, I have two Gray Granite Christmas cards to share with you today. The first one uses Merriest Moments bundle from the Stampin' Up! Australia July to December Mini Catalogue.

Stampin 2021 Merriest Moments Christmas Card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Melbourne, Australia

I have used the Merriest Moments embossing folder on the Gray Granite cardstock layer, and then used my sponge dauber to sponge on a little more Gray Granite ink to the embossed bit to highlight it some more. I've stamped the Poinsettia's in Blackberry Bliss, and added some gold embellishments. Both of these colours work great with Gray Granite.

The next card is a case of one of the free tutorials I sent my subscribers a few weeks ago. I love how the design of that one turned out, that I recreated it in Gray Granite too.

Stampin 2021 Peaceful Deer Christmas Card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Melbourne, Australia

For this one I have used some of the new Ever Eden DSP, coming to customers along with coordinating embellishments and an early release bundle from the January to June mini catalogue. I have used the Evening Evergreen jewels from the 2021-22 InColor Jewels pack, some gold twine from the Simply Elegant Trim Combo and the sentiment, deer and coordinating punch are from the Peaceful Deer Bundle. That's the Timeworn Type embossing folder on the background Gray Granite piece. Such a GORGEOUS folder!

Before we move onto the next card, here's a fun blooper for you. Our lovely Simba likes to get in on the photo love sometimes when I am trying to take photos of my cards. He even looks like he is posing in this one.

Colour Creations 2021 to 2022 logoToday the Art with Heart Colour Creations girls are are playing with Flirty Flamingo, which is one of our mid pinks in the brights colour group.  Flirty F

I have a water-coloured card today, using the Forever Blossoms stamp set from the 2021 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. This is such a pretty blossom image don't you think? I have coloured the blossoms in Blushing Bride and Flirty Flamingo, which I think is more the colours of nectarine or plum blossom.

Using die cut shapes can really elevate your card design. I have used Ornate Layers Dies to cut out the water-coloured image, and the gorgeous Encircled in Beauty dies for the Flirty Flamingo piece underneath. You can view all the products I have used in today's card using the links at the end of the post. My base card is Gray Granite and I have stamped the same image on the top left and bottom right, in Gray Granite ink.

The sentiment I have used is from Best Year stamp set, which is also in the current Annual Catalogue. I stamped it onto a scrap of Fluid 100 Watercolour paper using Crumb Cake ink, trimmed it and used the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch on the end. I also lightly sponged the edges of the sentiment label with Crumb Cake ink using a sponge dauber. Champagne Rhinestones finish off my card.

Here's another look at my colour combination for today.

For the cocktail image, I stamped the outline in Memento Black, and used the Pool Party and Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends for the lemon and umbrella. The glass contents is a stamp which I inked up in Daffodil Delight and then lightly stamped off once. I then sponged a little Polished Pink ink around the base before stamping into the glass. As it's a Photopolymer stamp set, it's super easy to line up. I finished my card off with some white embossed sentiments (on Polished Pink cardstock, some white bakers twine, and some of the Polished Pink Jewels (from the 2021-23 InColor Jewels pack).

Stampin' Up! Masculine Card with Mountain Air with Cajun Craze

Colour Creations 2021 to 2022 logo

Hello friends. This week the Colour Creations ladies in the Art with Heart Team are playing with Cajun Craze. This is one of my least used Stampin' Up! colours, so it definitely was a challenge. Once I got the idea though, away I went.

119790o01

I wanted to create a card for a very sick relative overseas. We enjoyed time together on their trip to Australia several years ago, so I wanted to come up with a card that let him know I was thinking of him at this very hard time, and that perhaps reminded him a little of Australia. Cajun Craze definitely is the colour of some of the Australian outback, and the Kimberley region especially.

Masculine Thinking of You card using Stampin Up Mountain Air and Ink Blending Technique. Card by Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

I have used the Mountain Air stamp set from the 2021 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue, to create several layers of mountains by stamping in Early Espresso onto Cajun Craze and die cutting with the coordinating Majestic Mountain dies. I love the dimension you can achieve with these two products. The trees are from the same stamp set and dies, and my greeting from the Quiet Meadow stamp set.

I adhered these pieces onto a layer of shimmery white which I had applied ink using my blending brushes. The lowest area near the mountain range is Calypso Coral, then I blended in some Pool Party, Bermuda Bay, and lastly some Misty Moonlight at the very top and edges. The birds from the stamp set were stamped in Misty Moonlight too.

I then mounted this piece onto some Cajun Craze cardstock, and an Early Espresso base card. I'm really pleased how this card turned out. There was a lot of love put into it, and I think it looks quite peaceful. You can view all of the products I have used in this card using the links at the end of the post.
