Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 7 Blushing Bride

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 7 Blushing Bride

Welcome to week 7 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop!

This week we are showcasing one of the subtles family: Blushing Bride.

Originally I had decided to make a card inspired by the stunning colour combination in the Tropical Escapade Designer Series Paper – Blushing Bride, Granny Apple Green and Shaded Spruce – but when I sat down the make this card last weekend, inspiration ended up coming from a far more personal place.

On Sunday morning at 6.30am, a group of us gathered at Freshwater Beach to remember my friend Justine, who was shot dead one year ago by a police officer in the United States. It’s had to believe it’s a year since we last gathered together on this beach in total shock and disbelief, throwing pink flowers into the ocean…and even harder to believe we still don’t understand why she was killed.

This year we once again celebrated Justine’s beautiful, caring and kind nature with pink flowers (her favourite colour), but this time we laid the flowers around a heart made of candles.

Have you ever seen such a beautiful heart?

When I came home to make my card for this week I was so inspired by that heart of pink flowers, which is why I decided to make my card using the stunning Petal Promenade DSP.

I began by layering a piece of the DSP onto a whisper white card and then I laid a piece of vellum over the DSP to allow the elements on the top of the card to stand out against (rather than compete with) such a strong background visual. I love the way vellum softens the DSP but still allows it to shine.

Did you notice that stunning rose on the front of my card? It’s from the “Notes of Kindness” Card Kit, which is incredibly appropriate for this card because Justine really was one of the kindest people you’d ever meet.

In addition to the rose from the “Notes of Kindness” Card Kit, this card uses a lot of my favourite Stampin’ Up! things, including burlap ribbon, linen thread, and that darling little “for you” tag from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set and its matching Bouquet Bunch Framelits dies.

I die cut the other elements on the front of this card with the Petals and More Thinlits and the Tropical Thinlits. I’m really loving this colour combination of Blushing Bride, Crumb Cake and Mossy Meadow!

To complete the inside of this card I decided to add a stamped and punched out Happy Birthday and some more Petals and More Thinlits in Blushing Bride and Whisper White.

The “Notes of Kindness” Card Kit also comes with the most beautiful envelopes lined with Blushing Bride DSP…LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these envelopes! I specifically made my card to fit in this gorgeous envelope.

The recipient of this card will be another incredibly kind person…my Aunty Rob, who has just turned 82.

Aunty Rob’s late husband, my Uncle Bob, was an amazing gardener who grew the most beautiful roses in their garden, so I’m hoping the roses on this card will bring back fond memories for Aunty Rob when I catch up with her for a belated birthday lunch this week.

Aunty Rob, Uncle Bob and Justine…these beautiful pink roses remind me of just how lucky I’ve been to have such kind and generous people in my life.

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 6 Blueberry Bushel

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 6 Blueberry Bushel

Welcome to week 6 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop!

This week we are showcasing one of the 2018 – 2020 In Colours: Blueberry Bushel.

For my project this week I decided to showcase Blueberry Bushel by using products from the Best Route suite, including the Best Route Designer Series Paper, the En Route stamp set, and the new Best Route Memories & More Card Pack.

I love how this Best Route DSP combines Blueberry Bushel with Basic Black, Gray Granite, Mango Melody and Pineapple Punch. Doesn’t this colour combination really pop?

And how amazing are these new Memories & More Card Packs, designed to be used for both cardmaking and scrap booking?

The card I made this week was a very, very special card for a very, very special person in my life: my hubby!

You see, he finally sold his business of 20 years this week, and selling it was a huge leap of faith into the unknown, both personally and career-wise. This was a business he built from scratch in an industry that wasn’t really his passion…but he has persevered and worked very hard in it for the past 20 years to support our family.

I designed this card as I was making it around the card sizes in the Best Route Memories & More Card Pack, and I also used stamps from the inspirational stamp set, Seize the Day (and the wonderful “just breathe” stamp set from Colourful Seasons). These sets are both great for male cards and they were simply perfect for all of the things I wanted to say to my hubby.

I’m not sure what you call this type of fancy fold card as I made it up as I went along! Maybe it could simply be called multi-fold card? Hopefully, these pictures will explain more clearly how I made it.

I began with the centre section of the card and added flaps to the top, bottom, left and right of the centre section. The centre section is made with one A4 piece of Gray Granite with 2 of the Memories & More smaller sized cards aligned to the right of this piece of cardstock, with fold line scored to the left of these cards. The bottom card I deliberately left blank to write a message on.

To make the right hand flap, I used another piece of A4 Gray Granite cardstock, cutting and folding as per measurements below. There’s about an inch of extra cardstock to the left of the fold line…you just need to leave enough to be able to adhere this piece to the centre piece of the card.

I adhered 2 strips of tear and tape and then attached the right-hand flap to the centre section of the card.

The top flap was made with the leftover piece of cardstock I chopped off from the right-hand flap (see earlier image), and then I cut an identically sized piece for the bottom flap. Both top and bottom flaps were attached using tear and tape, just like the right flap.

And here’s how the entire card looks as you gradually open each flap to unfold the card.

All closed up, with the bottom flap on the front of the card ⇓.

With the top and bottom flap opened ⇓.


With the left and right flap opened ⇓.

And here is the reverse of the card…I cut a piece of Gray Granite cardstock to cover all of the joins where I’ve attached the flaps to the card.

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 5 Blackberry Bliss

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 5 Blackberry Bliss

Welcome to week 5 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop!

This week we are showcasing a returning in colour: Blackberry Bliss.

Blackberry Bliss is such a scrummy rich colour and to showcase this colour I decided to pair it with Rich Razzleberry and Crumb Cake to make a very special card for a very special person…Donna Williams from our Stampin’ Up! home office here in Australia.

So why was I making a card for Donna (aside from the fact she is such a sweetie)…and why have I taken a selfie of both of us?

Well, SOMEBODY went away on their annual crafting weekend with their downline and customer and misread a text message about who was bringing the Bigshot for the weekend.

And then SOMEBODY realised when they arrived at their destination and all the wonderful new Stampin’ Up! products were unpacked that there was not a single Bigshot in the house!

So SOMEBODY put out a call on social media to see if there were any Stampin’ Up! demos who lived nearby who could lend us a Bigshot for the weekend…

…and the lovely Donna Williams came to the rescue!

So when SOMEBODY went to Donna’s place to collect the said Bigshot, they needed to quickly make a card to go with the thank you bunch of flowers…a card that used a punch instead of a Bigshot to cut out the stamped images!

Luckily, SOMEBODY had bought the fantastic new Varied Vases stamp and punch bundle away with them on their crafting weekend!

This beautiful bundle was created to celebrate an American Stampin’ Up! demo called Mary Fish reaching $1 million in Stampin’ up! sales…how cool it that?

Varied Vases is such a great bundle for stampers of all levels…especially stampers who don’t own a Bigshot, or those stampers who do own a Bigshot, but forget to take it away on a craft weekend!!!!!

And just how perfect is that sentiment on the front of the card? Donna really is “simply is the best” for coming to our rescue!

Because Blackberry Bliss is a very dark colour I decided to pair it with lots of clean white space, a touch of Crumb Cake, and the lovely Rich Razzleberry.  The middle vase was stamped with Blackberry Bliss that was stamped off once, which makes it look a lot like Rich Razzleberry.

Kate Morgan shared a top tip for using this set…by stamping the vase outlines first in a light colour at the same time as the flowers (before you later mount the stamped and punched vases over the top) you can perfectly align the images. You can see my lightly stamped vase outlines in the photo below, as well as the little bow of linen thread that adds a final touch of texture to the card.

I can’t wait to see what the rest of the Art With Heart team have come up with for their Blackberry Bliss projects for this week’s blog hops!

Art With Heart CASEing the Catty Blog hop

Art With Heart CASEing the Catty Blog hop

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects CASED from the annual catalogue. If you CASE a project it means you Copy And Share Everything. If you would like a copy of the 2018 – 2019 annual catalogue, contact any of the girls on the blog hop and we will get in touch with you.

This is the card (back left in the photo below) that I decided to CASE from page 91 of the annual catalogue, changing the colours and some of the design elements to match a special project I’m making.

When I’m not paper crafting I also love to sew. And the birth of a new baby is the perfect excuse to make a new quilt.

My youngest sister-in-law is just about to give birth to her very first baby (it’s a little girl) and I can’t wait to meet her. I’m making a quick, easy and cosy flannelette quilt for her in soft grays, pinks, and whites, with just a touch of Pool Party aqua (one of my sister-in-law’s favourite colours).

Please excuse the pins and loose threads in the photo below…I’ve just assembled the quilt sandwich layers, ready to finally quilt it all together.

Once I finish quilting it (and I’d better get my skates on as she’s due in the next couple of weeks!) I’ll wrap it up and present it with my matching CASEd card, which I made using a fantastic new punch bundle called Little Elephant bundle.

Check out the teeny tiny details, such as the punch for the elephant’s ears and eyes, and the little bird stamp!
 
 
I really loved the striped DSP used on the card in the catty (it’s from the Twinkle Twinkle DSP pack) but the colours didn’t quite match my quilt. So I used my Stampin’ Up! trimmer to cut 1cm strips of Basic Gray, Smokey Slate, Whisper White, Powder Pink and Pool Party card stock and layered them horizontally over three vertical strips of tear and tape.
 
Ta da…my very own custom striped DSP!
 
 
The little elephants were stamped and then punched out and layered on top of Powder Pink and Whisper White card stock that I had cut using the layering squares dies.
 
Did you spot the little Pool Party bird on top of the smallest elephant? And the layered elephant ear on the largest elephant? I just love these little details!
 
 
I used the same “Hello little one” sentiment stamp as the original card in the catty for the front of the card, but I’ve also added in the lovely “Welcome to the World” sentiment from the Baby Bear stamp set for the inside of the card.
 

And the final touch on the card is a little bow made from the Whisper White bakers twine.
 
 
Here is a photo of the card and the quilt together…I can’t wait to see my newborn niece all snuggly and warm, wrapped up in this quilt!

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 4 Berry Burst

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 4 Berry Burst

Welcome to week 4 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop!

This week we are showcasing one of the 2017-2019 In Colours: Berry Burst. 

For my projects today I’ve teamed Berry Burst with Old Olive and Basic Black…I just love the richness of these colours together!

Both cards are made with the Floral Statements stamp set. This is such a great stamp set because it does all the hard work for you. There’s no juggling the position of the image and sentiment…both stamps artfully combine the two, so all you need to do is simply stamp and then colour. Too easy!

My first card couldn’t be simpler…I simply stamped the “Thanks” stamp in Basic Black onto Whisper White card stock and coloured the flowers with Berry Burst and Old Olive Stampin’ Write Markers.

I then mounted the coloured image onto Basic Black card stock and the stunning Share What You Love DSP, adhering it all to a Whisper White Card. The final touch is a bow made from the Berry Burst Metallic Edge Ribbon.

The second card was just as easy. This time I stamped the “Hello” stamp onto some of the incredibly versatile Wood Textures DSP, coloured with my Stampin’ Write Markers, then mounted the coloured image onto Basic Black card stock and a Whisper White Card.

The finishing touch for this card was some Basic Jewels Pearls. I’m really happy with the effect the Wood Textures DSP gives to the stamped image.

Both these cards couldn’t be simpler…I love how this stamp set makes me look like an artist!

Berry Burst is such a beautiful colour to use for flower stamps and I can’t wait to see what the rest of the Art With Heart team have come up with today.

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 3 Bermuda Bay

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 3 Bermuda Bay

Welcome to week 3 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop!

This week we are showcasing one of my favourite colours: Bermuda Bay. 

Bermuda Bay is often paired with Pool Party (and they look amazing together) but it also really looks great when used with Lemon Lime Twist. To showcase this colour combination I’ve used something old (the Painted Harvest stamp set) and something new (the Pop of Petals bundle) for my three Bermuda Bay cards.

For the first 2 cards, I used the Painted Harvest stamp set to CASE some cards I’d seen on Pinterest, changing up the colours and the sentiments. This first card is so simple but it really showcases how well Lemon Lime Twist and Bermuda Bay go together.

Can you spot the bakers twine in the next card? I used the dark Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blend! to colour Whisper White bakers twine. 

However, it’s the final card I’m most excited about…I used the new Pop of Petals bundle and I just love this stamp set and its matching punch!

If you look closely you’ll see another homemade embellishment that’s just so simple to make…I used the dark Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blend! to colour a few rhinestone basic jewels. Here’s a close-up to show you my sparkly Bermuda Bay embellishments.

Look at all the lovely little stamps there are in this stamp set! I also used another great new colour, Call Me Clover, for this card.

Bermuda Bay works with so many different colour combinations and I can’t wait to see what the rest of the Art With Heart team have come up with today.

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 2 Basic Gray

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 2 Basic Gray

Welcome to week 2 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop!

This week we are showcasing one of the most versatile neutrals: Basic Gray. 

As a quilter, I know that gray is one of the best neutrals to use as a background colour because it really makes other colour pop, but I wanted to make the Basic Gray the focus for my projects today so I’ve deliberately paired it with other neutrals, even though it looks fantastic with any colour.

For all of these cards, I’ve used one of my favourite new stamp sets: Dandelion Wishes.

For the first 2 cards, I used silver and gold foil with the Basic Gray. I stamped onto the Basic Gray cardstock with Versamark ink and then heat embossed using white embossing powder. The gold facetted gems, and a bow made of gold metallic thread and Whisper White bakers twine finished off the gold foil card. You can see the silver card in the group shots of all the cards.

I then decided to contrast the Basic Gray with black and white, and even though there are a few heat embossing mistakes on this card, I still like the contrast in the colours. I used the white Stampin’ chalk marker to draw over the Dandelion stamp. The new black cord ribbon is stunning but slippery so I made the shape of a bow (without tying it) and used glue dots to make it stick to the card. The tiny hello sentiment is from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set.

I also just couldn’t resist pairing Basic Gray with two of my all-time favourite colours: Night of Navy and Crumb Cake. For this Night of Navy card, I used some fantastic new DSP that comes in every single Stampin’ Up! colour (you can see the different patterns in the Basic Gray example I’ve included at the start of this blog). The happy birthday sentiment is from a new hostess stamp set: Hand Delivered.

But finally, I think this last card, pairing Basic Gray with Crumb Cake, is my absolute favourite!

It was really hard to get a shot of all the cards together, but I think laying them on the different contrasting  cardstocks gives a good idea of how versatile this neutral really is. 

I’m really looking forward to using Basic Gray with lots of different colour combinations and I can’t wait to see what the rest of the Art With Heart team have come up with today.

Inspired by Marimekko

Inspired by Marimekko

Isn’t it amazing where the inspiration for a card can come from?

Two weeks ago I went to Bendigo for the very first time to see the Marimekko exhibition at Bendigo Art Gallery and I fell in love with the classic bold graphics of this design house all over again.

And then last week I went to a lampshade making evening with some of my girlfriends and made not one, but two lampshades. 

I love the watercolour look of the fabric on this lamp. I found this fabric in a remnant pile.

But it’s the fabric I used to make this next lampshade that inspired my project tonight. This lampshade is made from a new colourway of one of my favourite Marimekko designs: Unikko.

At the Marimekko exhibition, I learnt that this classic design was created in 1964, despite the Marimekko founder having publicly proclaimed a ban on flowers in Marimekko prints. One of the artists designed a collection of floral patterns that were so fresh and unique that Marimekko produced eight of them, including their now iconic Unikko pattern.

To replicate this beautiful Marimekko design on my card I used Crumbcake, Very Vanilla, Basic Black, and a new colour Stampin’ Up! colour, Balmy Blue, for the lovely light blue centre of the flowers. In hindsight, I could have also replicated this fabric using Crushed Curry as the background colour.

The flowers, their centres and their stems were cut from cardstock using the Seasonal Layers thinlit dies. The stems were made using the Adirondack chair die cut into smaller pieces, and the middle of the flower was coloured in with a black marker. The sentiment comes from the matching stamp set, Colorful Seasons.

When I purchased the fabric I just couldn’t resist buying a matching cup for my morning cup of tea. I’ve actually had my morning cup of tea out of the Red Unikko mug for the past 10 years so it was high time to update my morning brew with a fresh new colour of that classic design I love so much.

This was a quick and easy card to make and I’m going to have a go now at replicating all of the beautiful Marimekko colourways of this gorgeous design using Stampin’ Up! colours. I’ll share them on my blog when they’re done.

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 1 Balmy Blue

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 1 Balmy Blue

Welcome to week 1 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop!

Because we have 52 stunning Stampin’ Up! colours (not including Whisper White) and 52 weeks of the year, it really made sense to decide to do a weekly blog hop to showcase each and every one of these beautiful colours. 

Stampin’ Up! have had a colour refresh this year, introducing 10 new core colours, 6 returning favourites, and 5 new in colours. Here’s the entire list of Stampin’ Up! colours for 2018-2019.

Working through the colours in alphabetical order, we begin our blog hop this week with a brand new colour: Balmy Blue. Balmy Blue is part of the subtles colour family and a great replacement for the now retired Marina Mist. 

To showcase this colour I’ve paired it with a classic and elegant colour combination of neutrals: Night of Navy and Whisper White, with just a touch of Old Olive for the leaves in the bouquet. Something old and something new… Night of Navy and Balmy Blue.

This card uses one of my all-time favourite stamp sets, Beautiful Bouquet, with the matching Bouquet Bunch Framelits dies.

That little gift tag is just the sweetest…can you see it peeping out from behind the Night of Navy bakers twine?

I’m hopeless at remembering to stamp the inside of my cards so I’ve set myself a personal challenge with this blog, to stamp the inside of every card!

I’m really looking forward to using Balmy Blue with lots of different colour combinations and I can’t wait to see what the rest of the Art With Heart team have come up with today. Just click on the links below to see what they’ve all made.

Birthday Delivery and Birthday Memories Memory Game

Birthday Delivery and Birthday Memories Memory Game

Are you as excited as I am?

Just 2 more sleeps to go before the new Stampin’ Up! annual catty is released…and also before some lovely products retire.

Today I’m sharing a project that uses one of these retiring products: the Birthday Delivery Photopolymer Bundle.

 

In two days time my beautiful niece, who is about to turn 2, flies to Amsterdam with my brother and sister-in-law so I decided to make her a little toy to help with the long flight, a memory game.

The Birthday Delivery Photopolymer Bundle, as well as the and the co-ordinating Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper are ideal for this project because the dies cut out images from the paper as well as the stamp set.

This memory game was so super easy to make. I cut 12 3×3″ squares of whisper white and stuck these squares to the co-ordinating DSP. I chose the yellow pattern as the back pattern for the memory cards because it is important for this game to choose a pattern that is the same for each card.

The pairs of images on the cards were cut from the designer series paper with the dies (so there was no stamping or colouring required) and simply glued to the whisper white cardstock. I used the corner rounder punch to round the corners of the cards.

To finish off the project I popped all of the cards into a mini pizza box, topped it with some more of the yellow patterned DSP to match the memory card inside, as well as a die cut image from the DSP. 

Finally, I tied it all up with some of the retiring crinkled seam binding ribbon in peekaboo peach.

You can purchase any of these products in my online store.

Or contact me if you’d like a copy of the new Stampin’ Up! 2018-2019 catalogue.

Happy crafting!
