Old Olive Amazing Silhouettes Bundle – AWH Colour Creations

Old Olive Amazing Silhouettes Bundle – AWH Colour Creations

Welcome to week 32 of our 2021-22 Colour Creations blog hop! Tonight we are showcasing Old Olive from the Regals family.

Old Olive is the green I tend to use the most. I especially like it used with pinks, but this week I’ve made a simple slimline monochromatic card that is quite masculine.

I’ve used the new Amazing Silhouettes bundle – this stamp set features negative images and the coordinating word dies also have shadow dies.

These large stamps do all the hard work for you, quickly filling the card front. I created a forest of Old Olive trees, using the same stamp at different heights.

The shadow word die was cut in Basic Black to make the Old Olive “Thanks” really pop.

None of the ribbons I tried really worked with this design, so I simply used a strip of Basic Black card stock instead.

The free SALE-a-bration “Special Moments” stamp set provided me with the perfect sentiment for the inside of my “thanks” card.

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

CASEing the Catty #351 with Happy Hedgehogs Bundle

CASEing the Catty #351 with Happy Hedgehogs Bundle

It’s been a very long time since I joined the CASEing the Catty challenge so I’m excited to play along again this week. The #CTC351 challenge is to case the 2022 Sale-a-bration Catalogue.

I decided to CASE this card on page 7 of the 2022 Sale-a-bration Catalogue.

I’ve used two new products from the January – June Mini Catalogue for my CASE: the Happy Hedgehogs punch bundle and the Hive Embossing folder. I’ve also used a FREE SALE-a-bration product, the Special Moment stamp set.

I kept the layout and design very similar to the card I’m CASEing in the catalogue, basically changing the colours and the stamp set used.

The “Thanks for brightening up my day” sentiment from the Special Moments stamp set is the perfect sentiment for my bright and shiny gold hedgehog. He certainly brightens up what is otherwise a deliberately monochromatic card!

I used Black Stazon ink to stamp the hedgehog onto the gold foil and then punched the hedgehog out using the hedgehog builder punch.

The sentiment was stamped twice, once in Memento Black and one in Versamark ink that I then gold embossed to match the hedgehog. I fussy cut both sentiments using paper snips and adhered to the card with dimensionals.

I didn’t forget the inside of the card either, using one of the sentiments from the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set. I think it works really well with the sentiment on the front of the card.

To purchase any of the products featured in today’s post, go to my Stampin’ Up! Online Store 

If you’d like me to post you your very own copy of the 2022 Sale-a-bration Catalogue, the January – June 2022 Mini Catalogue, the 2021-22 Stampin Up! Annual Catalogue or to simply find out about more about Stampin’ Up! contact me.

I’ll be back on Wednesday night with the AWH Colour Creations team and we will be showcasing Old Olive.

In the meantime, wherever you are in the world, stay safe, stay calm…and keep on crafting xxx

How Awesome are these Otters!

How Awesome are these Otters!

I hope you had a good weekend and you’re staying safe and well?

Isolation has given me more time to craft (yay!!) and so I have three more otter cards to share with you using three of the SALE-a-bration products: the Awesome Otters stamp set, the Simply Marbleous Designer Series Paper and the Special Moments stamp set.

Card one – “Picture This” dies

The round “Picture This” die works so well with the Awesome Otters stamp set – each window frames the otters perfectly! The “Hey Boo” sentiment comes from the Special Moments stamp set.

To ensure my stamping lined up with the die cut circles, I used the die cut as a template, drawing inside each circle with my pencil before stamping. Once everything was stamped, I simply rubbed out the pencil circles, coloured the images using my Stampin’ Blends and adhered the top layer of DSP.

Card two – birthday balloon

Card two uses the largest circle die cut from card one to make a fun birthday balloon.

The Stitched Rectangle dies create an inlay effect that frames the birthday boy perfectly!

Card three – “Bouquet of Love” hybrid embossing folder.

Card three uses another great die: the largest heart die from the Bouquet of Love Hybrid Embossing Folder.

And of course, I had to stamp the inside of each card as well as the back of the envelopes!

I’ll be back with the Art with Heart Colour Creations team at 8pm (AEST) Wednesday night to showcase Night of Navy.
