Stampin' Up! Forever Blossoms, for Colour Creations: Flirty Flamingo

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.

Here is my colour combination for today.

Cocktail colour

The Polished Pink and Pool Party patterned papers I have used are the reverse sides of the Whimsy and Wonder DSP from the July to December Mini Catalogue. This is a gorgeous Christmas paper, but the reverse sides are really versatile too.

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).

Colour Creations Showcase Week 48: So Saffron

106922496_10159992931478098_1171141180047246582_n

Hello friends. I'm finding myself with a little more creative time at the moment, so I am excited to be able to participate in some of the creative challenges with my Art with Heart team girls. This week's colour challenge is So Saffron, a very muted yellow and to be honest not one I have created with much in the last year. 

Here is my card. I chose to use the beautiful new Hand-Penned Petals bundle. By stamping off (stamping once on scrap paper and then onto your card without reinking) the Polished Pink and Soft Succulent once each, I came up with a soft colour combination using So Saffron.

Here's the colour combination if you want to Pin It for future reference.

Stampin Up Color Combination 2021 InColors. Polished Pink, Soft Succulent, So Saffron and Basic Gray

One of the things I LOVE about this new bundle is it's designed for the stamping to be imperfect! I love the fresh vintage look you get when you stamp the solid colours for the leaves and flowers, and they don't quite fit perfectly. This really suits my style of stamping. I stamped the flowers and the sentiment in Basic Gray to tie in with the softer colour combination.

I have used the scalloped edge die from the coordinating Penned Flower Dies to create the left side edging. The flowers are two of the largest flower bunch, placed together. Here's a look at the Hand-Penned suite. You can buy the suite together (which includes 10% discount on the bundle), the bundle with a 10% discount, or individual components of the suite. All the product links for today's project are at the end of the post.

I have used a couple of other new products on my card too. My sentiment is from a great new stamp set with 11 sentiments, called Inspired Thoughts. I really love the font in this set. I have also used a great new die set called Encirled in Beauty, and there is just a peek of one of the decorative circle shapes poppng out unter the sentiment. This is going to be one of my favourite die sets for sure.

Sponged embossing card making technique on a 2021 Mothers day card.

Hello friends. Today I have a 2021 Mothers day card for you. A little early maybe, but I wanted to play with the Meadow Moments embossing folders and use the sponged embossing papercraft and card making technique. The soft colours I wanted to use were perfect for a Mothers Day card. 

Here's how my card turned out.

Meadow Moments sponged embossing folder 2021 Mothers Day Card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

I started with embossing a piece of Basic White cardstock with one one of the two embossing folders in the Meadow Moments embossing folder pack. Using sponge daubers, I lightly sponged the raised bits. I used the dauber and Blushing Bride ink pad for the flowers, Mint Macaron for the butterflies and Soft Sea Foam for the stems and leaves. I also lightly sponged the white areas in between with Soft Sea Foam.

Next steps were to add a thin strip of Mint Macaron cardstock to the left side of this strip, and to adhere it to a Blushing Bride card base which had been embossed with the subtles 3D embossing folder. To finish my card off I embossed the Happy Mothers Day sentiment from the Strong Women stamp set in white embossing powder onto Mint Macaron cardstock. I cut the butterfly embellishment using the Butterfly Duo Punch, and a piece of Blushing Bride cardstock which I had also embossed with the Subtle 3D folder.
