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.

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 coloured with Stampin' Blends.

Hello stampers. Today I have a Prized Peony coloured with Stampin' Blends for you. I am loving colouring the images in this beautiful stamp set from the 2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue.

Stampin Up Prized Peony stamp set coloured with Stampin' Blends. Dainty Diamonds and Subtle 3D embossing folder. 2020 card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

I wanted to keep my background quite neutral, so I have just used Crumb Cake cardstock. To create a bit more interest, I have used two different embossing folders. I have used the Subtle 3D folder on the first layer, and on the layer I have cut using the Stitched So Sweetly dies, I have used the Dainty Diamonds 3D folder. You can view or purchase these products in my online Stampin' Up! store in Australia, using the links at the end of this post.

Stampin Up Prized Peony stamp set coloured with Stampin' Blends. Dainty Diamonds and Subtle 3D embossing folder. 2020 card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

I have coloured the image with Stampin' Blends. I recently did a video showing how to colour the smaller Prized Peony, and used the same colouring technique here. Here's a look at that video in case it's helpful. The colours I have used are Purple Posy Stampin' Blends combo, Highland Heather Stampin' Blends combo and Old Olive Stampin' Blends combo.

To finish my card off, I have used a greeting from Well Written stamp set, which is stamped in Crumb Cake and cut out using the Stitched Nested Labels dies. I tied some linen thread around the flower stem, and placed some Elegant Faceted Gems around the flower. It's so hard to see in this picture, but I also used some Wink of Stella to add to the lowlights (dark shaded areas) on the flower. I love how that turned out.

Stampin' Up! Basket of Blooms stamp set & Small Bloom punch

Hey there.

Today I have a bright and happy card for you, using the Basket of Blooms stamp set from the 2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue.

Basket of Blooms stamp set by Stampin' Up!. 2020 card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

I was immediately drawn to this stand alone stamp set for several reasons:

  1. The great variety of outline images, including flowers, foliage, vase, basket and flower pot, which make it great for colouring.
  2. It coordinates with the Small Bloom punch, which was one of the free choices during Saleabration 2020, and can also be purchased still.
  3. It's a GREAT price - 14 stamps for $30.

Purchase in my online store in Australia.It's so easy to create beautiful floral arrangements with this set, whether they be simple or more detailed. By being able to punch out some of the flowers, it's easy to add dimension to your project too. Here's the Small Bloom Punch it coordinates with (shop link at the end of the post).

Stampin Up Small Blooms Bunch, coordinates with Basket of Blooms.. 2020 Annual Catalogue. Purchase in my online store in Australia.

For my card, I used Stampin' Blends to colour the vase (light and dark Seaside Spray and light Misty Moonlight). I stamped the foliage in Granny Apple Green, and the flower in Magenta Madness. My base card is Bumble Bee, and I have used Magenta Madness for the sentiment piece (the sentiment is from the Dressed to Impress stamp set) and for the mat on the stamped piece. The Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder is the perfect way to add some extra interest to the base Bumble Bee card.

I'm looking forward to having more of a play with this gorgeous stamp set. Here's some samples that the Stampin' Up! designers made with this set. Aren't they gorgeous? This set just inspires bright and happy cards and we could all do with some bright and happy right now.
