Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 27 Mango Melody

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 27 Mango Melody

Welcome to week 27 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop!

Our colour this week is one of the Bright Family Colours: Mango Melody.

For my card, I’ve used a beautiful stamp set that works with just about any colour and is perfect for #simplestamping: Abstract Impressions.

I made this card for a very special friend of mine who is feeling a bit lost and bit left out at the moment. She loves flowers and she loves orange, so I’m hoping this card will lift her spirits!

I’m loving making these cards that get right back to basics and only use paper, ink, stamps…and okay, some linen thread, but I just love my linen thread and I really really can’t seem to make a card without it these days!

For my colour scheme, I’ve paired mango melody with granny apple green and stamped both colours off. This is a simple technique that even the beginner stamper can easily do and it immediately doubles your available range of colours!

There is one element of my card that is not beginner…I’ve stamped the sentiment on the front of the card using Versamark ink and then heat embossed with white embossing powder. I love white heat embossing on coloured cardstock.

On the inside of the card, I’ve added the sentiment (which is just perfect for what I wanted to say) by stamping and die cutting it (with the stitched shapes framelits) on a separate piece of cardstock and then gluing it in.

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 26 Lovely Lipstick

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 26 Lovely Lipstick

Welcome to week 26 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop! 

Our colour this week is one of the 2018-20 In Colours: Lovely Lipstick. This is such a lovely rich colour.

I’ve made three cards for this colour to show how the same stamp set can be used for the three levels of crafter:

  • Beginner
  • Casual
  • Avid

The stamp set I’ve used is a FREE set from the upcoming Saleabration Catalogue, called Lasting Lily. This is a dynamic stamp set, giving you a wonderful depth effect and you can choose this set when you spend $180 or more on any product when the catalogue goes live in early January.

My first card is for the beginner crafter, someone who has never stamped before. To make this card you only need the stamp set, ink pads, cardstock, an acrylic block, some adhesive and some ribbon.

The only skills involved are simple stamping and the ability to tie a bow. The lighter pink lily is simply Lovely Lipstick stamped off once.

And here’s the inside, simply stamped as well.

My casual crafter’s card takes it up a notch by fussy cutting the flower, punching out the sentiment with the lovely label punch and adding layers of DSP. I bent my fussy cut lily with my fingers and topped it off with a bow of Mossy Meadow Bakers Twine (in the Festive Farmhouse trio pack).

Here’s the inside.

My avid crafter’s card has more intricate fussy cutting of the lily and its leaves and it uses advanced tools such as the bigshot and the heat tool. The Whisper White cardstock has been embossed with the wood plank embossing folder and then the sentiment has been stamped in Versmark and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

Linen thread, a strip of DSP and a galvanized button finish off the bunch of lilies.

But it’s on the inside that this card really steps up…it’s a pop-up card. Although I must say this technique only involves cutting two slits and folding the cardstock of the pop-up section in the opposite direction so it really would be easily doable for any level of crafter.

Here are all 3 cards, using the same stamp set for three different levels of crafters.
