Bermuda Bay Robot Buddies Kit Cards – Week 8 AWH Colour Creations

Bermuda Bay Robot Buddies Kit Cards – Week 8 AWH Colour Creations

Welcome to week eight of our Art With Heart 2022-23 Colour Creations blog hop! This is a weekly blog hop where we showcase the stunning range of Stampin’ Up! colours in alphabetical order over 12 months and this week we are featuring Bermuda Bay.

Since there is a “Buy One, Get One 50% Off” sale on all of the Stampin’ Up! Kits until 30 June, I couldn’t resist adding two of the adorable Robot Buddies Kids Card Kit to a recent order. The colours in this kit include Bermuda Bay, along with Balmy Blue, Granny Apple Green, Night of Navy and Pumpkin Pie.

The kit contains step-by-step instructions for nine cards in three different predesigned projects, but there are so many elements that let you make and design your own cards as well.

  • 2 Classic Stampin’ Spots in Bermuda Bay and Pumpkin Pie
  • 9 card bases and 9 envelopes
  • Robot Buddies Photopolymer Stamp Set
  • 2 printed sticker sheets
  • 1 printed die-cut sheet
  • 1 sheet of adhesive-backed googly eye embellishments
  • Enough adhesive to complete the projects
  • A printed box for storage or crafting on the go

Whenever I receive a kit I always make up one of each of the set designs first before I head “off grid” with my designs!.

Don’t these these robots make you smile! I just love their googly eyes.

This slimline landscape slimline card was created by adding some clouds and hearts die cut using the “Give It a Whirl” dies in Balmy Blue and Pumpkin Pie.

The Bermuda Bay grass was stamped with the Happy Hedgehogs Stamp Set onto a hand cut Granny Apple Green lawn.

And finally, this quick and easy monochrome masculine birthday card was made using the Night of Navy DSP pattern from the inside of the envelopes, spare stickers from the kit (chopped up) and the gear stamps that are included in the kit’s stamp set.

I had so much fun creating with this kit. I’m giving the second one I purchased in the BOGO 50% off sale to my niece as part of her 6th birthday present and I can’t wait to create with her.

Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Rosa Leyden – I can’t wait to see what Rosa has made this week!

Basic Gray Blessings of Home Cards – Week 7 AWH Colour Creations

Basic Gray Blessings of Home Cards – Week 7 AWH Colour Creations

Welcome to week seven of our Art With Heart 2022-23 Colour Creations blog hop! This is a weekly blog hop where we showcase the stunning range of Stampin’ Up! colours in alphabetical order over 12 months and this week we are featuring Basic Gray.

The stunning Heart & Home Designer Series Paper retires soon on June 30 so I really wanted to use it for my cards tonight. I love the different widths of the Basic Gray wood grain patterns and I’ve roughed up the edges of this DSP with paper snips before I adhered them to my Basic Gray card bases.

The darkness of the Basic Gray cardstock really makes this woodgrain DSP pop and I’ve coloured the flowers and leaves with Fresh Freesia and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends using the light Basic Black Stampin’ Blend for the centre of the largest flowers.

The larger floral spray stamp from the Blessings of Home stamp set has been stamped in Basic Gray and coloured with Stampin’ Blends. The Blessings of Home bundle also includes the Flowers of Home Dies which I’ve used to cut out the larger floral spray stamp as well as die cut the Basic Gray sprigs on my slimline card.

I’d also stamped and coloured the smaller spray of flowers from the Blessings of Home set but decided not to use it on the slimline card, so I quickly made a second card with it.

The flowers on this thank you card are layered on top of one of the Heart & Home Doilies and these doilies will also retire on June 30.

My layered bow consists of three different ribbons: Gray Granite Shimmer ribbon and Fresh Freesia Open Weave Ribbon that have been cut in half using my paper snips as well as linen thread.

Matte Dots in Basic Gray and some Wink of Stella in the middle of the largest flowers complete my cards.

Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Tina Gillespie – I can’t wait to see what Tina has made this week!

Balmy Blue Perfectly Penciled Card – Week 6 AWH Colour Creations

Balmy Blue Perfectly Penciled Card – Week 6 AWH Colour Creations

Welcome to week six of our Art With Heart 2022-23 Colour Creations blog hop! This is a weekly blog hop where we showcase the stunning range of Stampin’ Up! colours in alphabetical order over 12 months.

My card today has very little stamping as the beautiful flowers are actually a new black and white Designer Series Paper called Perfectly Penciled.

After colouring one of the floral sprays on the edge of the DSP using Balmy Blue and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends, I fussy cut the flowers out with my paper snips and adhered them to a layer of Basic White cardstock using multipurpose glue.

The “Thank You” sentiment is from a lovely new sentiment stamp set called Go-To Greetings. I felt that the ornate, slightly old fashioned script looked like handwriting and matched the pretty blue floral sprays.

A couple of excess pieces of DSP adorn the inside of my card.

Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Kate Morgan – I can’t wait to see what Kate has made this week!

CASEing the Catty #371 – Autumn Beauty of Friendship card

CASEing the Catty #371 – Autumn Beauty of Friendship card

Today I’m joining in the #CTC371 challenge, which is to CASE (Copy And Share Everything) the colours of the He’s the Man DSP – Basic Black, Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Early Espresso, Sahara Sand and Soft Succulent from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalogue.

These are the colours from the He’s the Man DSP – I used four of these colours on my card today.

These colours remind me of autumn, so I decided to use the acrylic block stamping technique to create an autumn scene.

You can use Basic White cardstock for this technique, but I wanted the texture that watercolour paper gives to the image. I inked up an acrylic block (I used size E) by tapping my Crushed Curry stamp pad directly onto it, spritzed it with water using a Stampin’ Spritzer and then I stamped the acrylic block directly onto the watercolour paper.

The tree stamp from the Beauty in Friendship stamp set is stamped in Early Espresso ink, with the leaf stamp in Cajun Craze, and then I roughed up the edges of the watercolour paper using my paper snips.

Since I had my sewing machine out, I decided to sew the watercolour paper to a mat of Basic Black cardstock. I love sewing on paper, it gives a really cool texture to cards.

The “Thank You” sentiment is also from the Beauty of Friendship set, heat embossed in white onto Basic Black cardstock.

Bronwyn’s Birthday Blog Hop #3 – Inky Blues card

Bronwyn’s Birthday Blog Hop #3 – Inky Blues card

Welcome to Bronwyn’s third Birthday Blog hop!

We’re a group of stamping friends who are celebrating Bron’s 60th Birthday in 2022 with six blog hops, over six months, with six fun themes! This is our inspiration pic for tonight’s hop – the current Stampin’ Up! range of blues.

I love all these blues and wanted to use as many of them as possible on my card so I decided to make a paper quilt card using some of the paper patterns from Stampin’ Up!’s Butterfly Kisses, Lovely Linen, Tea Boutique, Sun Prints and 2022-24 In Colour Designer Series Papers.

Creating a paper quilt card is very easy and – you just need a paper trimmer to cut your DSP into precise squares. I cut one and a half inch squares and then arranged the DSP at an angle onto half a sheet of A4 cardstock (A5)– this size makes two paper card quilts.

Once I’d adhered the squares using multipurpose glue, I turned it over and trimmed the overhang DSP back to the A5 cardstock base.

I then cut my patchwork layer in half, trimmed it and layered it to onto my card base using the following measurements.

  • Card base – Basic White cardstock 14.9 x 10.5cm (half a sheet of A4, folded in half)
  • Basic Back layer – 14.4 x 10 cm
  • Quilted paper layer – 13.9 x 9.5cm

I then used a stamp from the the Stitchery Stamp Set to add “stitches” to my quilt in Memento Tuxedo black ink.

The final touch was embossing with the stitched greenery die – it really makes the patchwork card look like it is quilted!

The “Thank you” sentiment and matching die is from the new Charming Sentiments Bundle, which includes the Charming Sentiments Stamp Set and the Sentiment Silhouettes Dies.

I stamped the “Thank You” stamp in Versamark ink onto Basic Black cardstock and heat embossed it using white embossing powder.

Next up on Bronwyn’s Birthday Blog hop is the birthday girl herself, Bronwyn Easterly. I can’t wait to see what Bronwyn has created today!

I’ll be back next Wednesday hosting the Art With Heart 2022-23 Colour Creations blog hop where we will be showcasing Balmy Blue.
