Art With Heart Colour Creations Showcase: Week 22 Just Jade

Welcome to week twenty-two of our 2020-2021 Art With Heart Colour Creations Showcase.

Each week various members of our Art With Heart Colour Creations team will be bringing you weekly colour inspiration as we showcase our range of over 50 beautiful Stampin’ Up! colours in alphabetical order.

Week 22 – Just Jade

Do you love making your own DSP? I certainly do and my card this week features a very simple DSP stamped in two of the new 2020-22 In Colors: Just Jade and Cinnamon Cider.

My card design and layout was inspired by a non Stampin’ Up! card I saw on Pinterest – I love how just two simple cuts with my Paper Trimmer bring a whole new level of interest to my card. This is a great layout to use up your DSP or you can make your own like I have done today, using the Peaceful Boughs stamp set.

After chopping my DSP I spaced it evenly onto a layer of Whisper White card stock and used white adhesive foam strips to adhere the DSP to the Whisper White card stock layer. I used one of the layering ovals dies to cut a window for the sentiment, which I stamped in Memento Ink.

To ensure the Gold Cord wrapped nicely around my card I added an extra layer of Whisper White on top of the card base, wrapped the cord around this layer and secured my Gold Cord to the back of this layer with sticky tape. Where the bow sits at the front of the card I used a mini glue dot to hold it in place. I could have also used the Just Jade ribbon, Linen thread or the Copper Grosgrain Ribbon from the Basket Weave and Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack.

I can’t wait to see what the rest of the Art With Heart team have created with Just Jade today. Click on the links below to see what they’ve made.

Heart of Christmas Week 5

Heart of Christmas Week 5

Welcome to week five of the 2019 Heart of Christmas blog hop!

This week I’ve decided to challenge myself to use three different embossing folders to create my Christmas cards. I often to forget to use my folders because I’m so focussed on DSP, stamps and dies, which is really silly because embossing folders are so quick and easy to use.

With so many beautiful designs to chose from, can you guess which three I chose?

For my first card I used the Pinewood Planks embossing folder, which can be used either way up.

The wreath is made using a combination of dies from the Frosted Bouquet Dies and the Beautiful Boughs Dies.

How cute is that sentiment? It’s from the Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp set – I’m so glad I got this set. It has been die cut with the stunning frame from the Beautiful Boughs Dies.

Card two continues the red and white theme, this time with the Woodland Embossing folder. Those branches were just crying out for some little birds – you might have overlooked these, they are in the Well Written die set.

The two baubles were punched out using the Gleaming Ornaments punches and then stamped with a stamp from the coordinatiing Christmas Gleaming stamp set.

To split the sentiment in half you can cut your stamp with scissors or do what I did and mask one side of your stamp with washi tape before inking up. Before you stamp, remove the washi tape and then stamp your image. Mask up the other side of your stamp with washi tape, ink your stamp, remove the washi and then stamp the other bauble.

My final card uses the Scripty 3D embossing folder, topped with a sentiment from the Peaceful Boughs stamp set, die cut with the largest frame from the Beautiful Boughs Die set.

Here’s a close up of this gorgeous frame and the boughs I’ve die cut with the Peaceful Boughs Dies set. Can you see the lovely script effect this embossing folder gives?

All my cards this week are finished off with a bow (or two) of linen thread and some red rhinestones.

These cards were quick and easy to make and I really love how the embossing folders add so much dimension and texture while also allowing me to make very clean and simple cards.

I will definitely be reaching for my embossing folders more often!
