Welcome to week forty two 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 Real Red from the Regals family.
Sometimes you feel like stamping – sometimes you don’t!
This Real Red card does not have any stamping thanks to the Amazing Thanks Dies and the Around The Bend Dies, which include multiple “stand alone” floral dies.
Stand alone floral dies do not die cut stamped images – they die cut and emboss flower and leaf pieces that you can layer or use on their own. The Around the Bend dies give you 20 floral pieces as well as four larger curved border dies.
I have to confess that I don’t use Real Red very often outside of Christmas cards, however, I do love using red and pink together, hence my colour combination today.
This style of card is so easy to make – you can use any large die or shape template. I used a pencil to trace around the outside of the largest of the layering stitched circle dies.
After die cutting an assortment of flowers and leaves I arranged them within the circle shape, making sure the die cut pieces fit together snugly and overlap the circle outline. I always take a photo at this stage to use as a reference before I remove all the die cuts and then glue them back into the circle shape.
Once I’d adhered all of the die cut shapes I used the circle die to cut the floral circle out and adhere to my card base, adding red Rhinestone jewels. There’s no need to rub out the pencil marks as the layering circle die cuts the flowers INSIDE the pencil circle outline.
Did you notice the embossed background on this card? Today, Stampin ‘Up! has released online exclusive products and this embossing folder is part of a three pack called Basic 3D embossing folders.
I’ve die stacked the “Thanks” die by cutting it out three times in Basic Black cardstock, gluing the three layers together and then adhering it to the “Thanks” die layer die cut in Basic White. You can see the incredible dimension from the side of the card.
I decided to leave the inside of the card blank, just using up some spare die cuts to decorate it. This truly is a no stamping card!
