Crumb Cake Card – Week 15 AWH Colour Creations

Crumb Cake Card – Week 15 AWH Colour Creations

Welcome to week fifteen 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 one of my very favourite colours – Crumb Cake.

I love Crumb Cake so much because it is such a wonderful neutral that works with every single colour. I wanted to make it the feature colour on this card by only adding Basic White and just a touch of Real Red, but I might have added too much red!.

My card is actually CASED from this incredible card created last year by UK demonstrator and former Artisan designer, Emma Goddard. Isn’t this card simply stunning?

I loved the loved the colour combination of Real Red and Crumb Cake, as well as the effect she created by heat embossing a large word stamp, then dry embossing it with an embossing folder and then, finally, blending Crumb Cake ink over the top to make the word pop out and highlight the texture of the embossing folder.

As many of these products are now retired, I had to get creative and CASE this design with current Stampin’ up! products.

  • The “Sending” stamp is from the Sending Smiles stamp set
  • The “Christmas Wishes” is from the Leaves of Holly Stamp set
  • The dry embossing is created with the “Wintry” embossing folder
  • The double bow is created using the Bakers Twine Essentials and the Real Red & Garden Green 3/8″ (1 cm) Ribbon Combo Pack

The white heat embossed word is invisible until you blend the Crumb Cake ink over it with a blending brush.

The “Christmas wishes” sentiment was also heat embossed in white onto Basic White Cardstock and then I rubbed Real Red ink over the top and cut the sentiment in half.

To achieve the white border of Emma’s “Merry and” reverse stamps I mounted the Christmas wishes sentiment onto some Basic White card stock before attaching to the card.

The Real Red Ribbon was cut in half lengthways before tying into a bow and the top bow is Crumb Cake bakers twine from the Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack, however you could use Linen Thread as well.

Red Rhinestone jewels popped into the middle of the snowflakes complete the card.

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

CASEing the Catty – Inlay Technique using Love of Leaves bundle

CASEing the Catty – Inlay Technique using Love of Leaves bundle

This week’s CASEing the Catty #CTC382 challenge is to case your favourite bundle from the 2020 August – December Mini Catalogue.

I have so many favourites in this catalogue but in the end I decided to use a bundle I hadn’t played with yet: the Love of Leaves bundle.

This is the card design I decided to CASE – it’s on page 74 of the 2020 August – December Mini Catalogue.

My card is the same basic layout but I’ve used the die inlay technique to insert the die cut shapes into the card front instead of layering them on top.

I cut my leaves out of the beautiful brushed metallic cardstock instead of the coloured and stamped leavers in the sample I CASED.

This angle better shows the soft sheen of this card stock.

I’ve used all three colours of brushed metallic cardstock: bronze, copper and gold.

The sentiments and fonts in the Love of Leaves stamp set are incredible. I’ve white heat embossed the little Thank You for my card today.
