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:
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.
