Welcome to week sixteen 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 Crushed Curry, a rich deep yellow in the regal family.
I’ve taken the opportunity this week to make a Father’s Day card for my husband using the Brewed For You bundle and elements from the He’s the Man Suite.
The Brewed For You bundle was a must have purchase for me as my husband and both my sons are quite obsessed with and incredibly knowledgeable about craft beer!
Crushed Curry is such a bold yellow I’ve used it sparingly to colour the IPA beers using the two step stamps included in the Brewed For You stamp set, as well as to layer under the inside sentiment.
The “growler” contains a stout (some of it already poured into the glass on the far left), stamped and coloured with Soft Suede ink and Stampin’ Blends.
A full width easel card allows me to include as many beers as possible – this type of fancy fold is seriously one of the easiest but most effective fancy folds you can make!
Here’s what it looks like when the card is closed. At first glance it appears to be just a normal card.
But when you open it up it looks like this!
And this is what it looks like from the side. This is a great card for display.
Full Width Easel Card Instructions
- Make a card base of any size – today I’ve used half an A4 sheet of cardstock, folded in half
- Measure the halfway point of the front of the card base and score across this halfway point
- Fold this score line and then decorate the card inside and out with DSP and cardstock
- To make the “easel” stand, use dimensionals to attach a sentiment to the middle of the inside of the card
Creating Beer Froth
The froth on the beer is created using the Snowfall Accents puff paint. Make sure you use a heat tool to froth it up as it dries.
I only added froth to one beer glass because most craft beers don’t really have a “head” compared to the more mainstream beers.
I’ve used all of the different glass dies for the beers on this card as we have an entire shelf in the kitchen cupboard dedicated to different kinds of beer glasses! And yes, my wine fridge has also been turned into a beer fridge!
The sentiment on the front of the card is a die cut image from the He’s the Man DSP. I’ve also used a sheet of the He’s the Man DSP to decorate the front of the card – I love the vintage vibe of this DSP.
The sentiment inside that forms the easel mechanism is from the He’s All That Stamp Set, die cut using the Stitched Rectangles dies and mounted onto the card using dimensionals.
I’ve just added a shadow to the bottom of the beer glasses in this last photo, using the Ivory Stampin’ Blend. I think it really grounds the beer glasses onto the card.
Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Ros Davidson – I can’t wait to see what Ros has made this week!
