Art with Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Rich Razzleberry

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.

Rish Razzleberry

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.

The bundle features the Forever and Always stamp set, and the Always dies which contains two large die-cut words (Love and Always), some labels to cut out other words in the stamp set, and some dies which cut out the flowers and leaves in the set. There are also dies to cut out outlines for both of the large words and I have used one of these in today's project.

The True Love Designer Series paper is a 12x12" 12 double sided paper pack entirely in black and white. It has floral images on one side, and patterns on the other. You can alter the paper by colouring it however you like: sponge brayering, using blending brushes or colouring with Stampin' Blends as I have have done with the flowers in this card. I have used a combination of Flirty Flamingo, Calypso Coral and Old Olive Stampin' Blends. They blend nicely on this paper, just make sure you have something underneath the paper when colouring to protect your work surface.

Bright Pink Stampin' Up! Poinsettia Petals 2020 Christmas Card

Let's brighten things up shall we? Today I have the beautiful Stampin' Up! Poinsettia Petals bundle from the 2020 Holiday (August to December Mini Catlogue) again, but I have brightened it up a notch or 10 with the colour.  You can view all the products I have used today using the image links at the end of the post.

Stampin Up Poinsettia Petals 2020 Christmas card in Magenta Madness. Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

Instructions to Watercolour this Poinsettia

  1. I embossed the three layers of the flower, in white embossing powder onto Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper
  2. I taped the watercolour sheet down with washi tape onto an old piece of cardboard for my work surface.
  3. Using a plastic paint palette, I added one drop of Magenta Madness reinker to one spot, 2 drops to another spot, and one drop of Blackberry bliss reinker to the third spot. I then added some water to each one (a couple of sprats of my spritzer did it). Test the colours to make sure they are the dilution you want.
  4. I spritzed the embossed images a couple of times from about 20cm away so the surface of the watercolour paper was wet.
  5. I started with the one drop of the Magenta Madness mix and  just dabbed onto the petals using my medium Waterpainter. The colour easily spreads without brushing because of all the water that is already added.
  6. I then added darker contrast with the 2 drop Magenta Madness, and finally some Blackberry Bliss in the centre and on the tips of some of the petals. If the ink isn't distributing as well as you would like, give another spray of the water spritzer.
  7. Let the inked images dry naturally and cut out with paper snips before layering together with dimensionals.
  8. After I assembeld the flower, I painted the visible bits of the flower with Wink of Stella for extra sparkle. It's hard to capture the sparkle in photos. but this one shows glimpses of it. It's much more sparkly in real life. Wink of Stella is such an affordable and easy way to give your projects sparkle.

Here's what it looked like when I was watercolouring:

Pink Poinsettia in progress

My base card is Smoky Slate, and my second layer is a piece of Fluid 100 watercolour aper with a very light waterwash of Smoky Slate, which I mounted on a thin mat of Rich Razzleberry cardstock. I worked out where I wanted the poinsettia to go, and then stamped ome of the foliage from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set directly onto the watercolour paper in Smoky Slate. I also did that with the greeting. I recommend using the Stamparatus Stamp Positioning Tool for this step, because it allows you to stamp over the top again in exactly the same spot if you don't get a good stamped impression the first time (which is often the case with watercolour paper because it is so porous).

For the other foliage, I die cut some in silver foil, and others I stamped in Rich Razzleberry and die cut with the coordinating dies in the bundle. For the centre of the Poinsettia, I coloured three of the large clear Rhinestone Jewels with my dark Rich Razzleberry Stampin' Blend, so they coordinated with the rest of the project. I also added a few of the smaller clear Rhinestone Jewels (one top left, two around the bottom right of the sentiment) to balance the layout.

Stampin' Up! Under My Umbrella stamp set coloured with Stampin' Blends. Video Tutorial.

Hello stamping friends. 

Today I have a card idea for friends. My stamp set is Under My Umbrella from the 2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue, and it has a coordinating punch. I have coloured the images with Stampin' Blends and have used a little sponging too. It's going to rain a bit this week in Melbourne (I actually love listening to the rain though, and it's great for the garden too) so this is an appropriate stamp set for sure.

I've put together a video for you showing the techniques I used to colour and blend with Stampin' Blends, and how to make the easy cloud background.

My colour palette was nice an bright and featured two of the Stampin' Up! 2020-22 InColours.

The cloud effect is super easy to make, and you don't need anything special. I show you how in the video.

Stampin' Up! Prized Peony Birthday Card coloured with Stampin' Blends

Hey friends,

Back with a birthday card today, using the beautiful Prized Peony stamp set coloured with Stampin' Blends.

Stampin Up Prized Peony Coloured with Stampin Blends by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. 2020 Annual Catalogue

I didn't catch the light terribly well onto the card front on the full photo, so this one is probably a better indication of true colour.

I have use Purple Posy and Highland Heather combos for my Stampin' Blends colours and Crumb Cake for my base card and layers. Isn't that Dainty Diamonds embossing folder pretty?

I've also made a YouTube video to show you how I went about colouring the Peony. I hope you like it!
