Stampin’ Up! Real Red – Week 40 AWH Colour Creations Showcase

Stampin’ Up! Real Red – Week 40 AWH Colour Creations Showcase

Welcome back to our Colour Creations Showcase as we continue our showcase of over 50 beautiful Stampin’ Up! colours in alpha order.

This week we are showcasing Real Red, a vibrant red from our regals family.

If you have a person in your life who loves playing chess, cards or dice games, the “Game On” stamp set is one you’ll want to add to your collection.

I decided to create a chess board for the chess stamp, using the smallest stitched square die from the Stitched Shapes dies to die cut 6 Real Red squares and 6 Basic Black squares.

I laid the squares in a checkerboard pattern and adhered alternate squares of red and black to a 12 x 9 cm Basic White layer – I wish I’d gone a tiny bit slower to get my alignment more precise!

The card base is half a piece of A4 Basic Black card stock folded in half, with another Basic White layer in between.

Before I adhered the two top layers to my card base I wrapped Whisper White twine twice around these top layers and tied a bow.

The chess pieces were fussy cut using my paper snips and the sentiment die cut using the stitched rectangle dies – two red rhinestone jewels add a tiny touch of bling.

Thanks to my friend Tina, I’m gradually forming the habit of stamping inside all my cards. I’ve used a chequerboard stamp from the “Game On” stamp set and the happy b.day stamp from the “Happiest of Birthdays Stamp Set” – I thought the graphic quality of this stamp worked well with this style of card.

I can’t wait to see what everyone else has created with Real Red today!

We will return next week on Wednesday March 24th when we’ll be showcasing Rich Razzleberry. We hope you can join us all then.

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 44 Sahara Sand

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 44 Sahara Sand

Welcome to week 44 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop!

Our colour this week is one of the lightest neutral colours: Sahara Sand.

There’s a new technique around called the floating frame technique and I decided to try it out for my project this week, using the Rooted in Nature stamp set and the matching Nature’s Root Framelits.

The technique is quite similar to making your own DSP. I began by stamping the leaves and trees and die cutting them out before I arranged them onto a rectangle. Once I was happy with my layout I laid a sheet of Glad Press and Seal over the top of my die cut pieces, turned everything upside down and trimmed off the overlap.

My colour combination is Sahara Sand, Pool Party, Bermuda Bay and Crumb Cake.

Once I’d trimmed off the excess, I die cut a rectangle out of the middle before removing the Whisper White cardstock from behind the die cuts. The Glad Press and Seal keeps your die cut pieces in place while you do this.

The final step is to use a lot of dimensionals behind the die cut pieces to adhere them to your card base. When your frame is in place you gently peel off the Glad Press and Seal. If you look closely at my card you can see where I’ve stuck the Press and Seal down too hard and it’s lifted some of my ink off.

One of my favourite things about this technique is that you get 2 cards from it. Here’s the second card, made from the inside piece.

I decided to make a third card to showcase the lovely embossing dies in the Nature’s Root Framelits, as well as showing how elegant Sahara Sand looks on its own when paired with Whisper White.

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 42 Real Red

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 42 Real Red

Welcome to week 42 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop!

Our colour this week is a regal colour: Real Red.

Real red is such a classic, stunning colour I wanted to pay homage to it with another classic: a bunch of red roses.

I’ve used one of my favourite stamp sets to create my beautiful rose bouquet: the first frost stamp set with its matching dies.

My colour combination is real red, crumb cake and old olive with a touch of pool party in the backgroud.

In my opinion, real red, just like old olive, really is one of those colours you can almost use as a neutral. It looks amazing with virtually any colour and really makes your card pop even if you only use a touch of it.

Last week I also used used real red in this colour combination.

In my project this week I’ve only used real red for my roses and for a touch of bling and dimension with the addition of the red rhinestones, but I still think it is the dominant colour of the card.

At the bottom of my card I used another all-time favourite of mine, the tiny little tag from the Bouquet Bunch Framelits Dies, stamped with the “for you” stamp from the Beautiful Bouquet Photopolymer Stamp Set.

To lift my bouquet off the front of the card I washed some pool party onto some card stock before cutting it out with my largest oval die. I love pool party with any shade of red.
