Art With Heart Colour Creations Showcase: Week 10 Cinnamon Cider

Art With Heart Colour Creations Showcase: Week 10 Cinnamon Cider

Welcome to week ten 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 10 – Cinnamon Cider

Cinnamon Cider is a 2020-22 In Color and one of the exciting new products available in this colour is a velveteen paper. You’ll find the velveteen paper pack is on page 153 of the 2020 Annual Catalogue and this soft flocked paper comes in Cinnamon Cider, Highland Heather and Soft Sea Foam.

I thought this soft velvety paper would be ideal for bringing the rabbit from the Nature’s Beauty stamp set to life, so my cards this week feature this darling little rabbit.

How adorable is does he look stamped with Memento Ink onto the Cinnamon Cider velveteen paper? I die cut the image using a circle die and mounted it onto a scalloped circle of Basic Black die cut using the larger scalloped circle die from the layering circle dies.

It’s really hard to show the soft texture of this velveteen paper and the effect of the subtle embossing on the Whisper White card stock but this close up gives you a clearer view. I just can’t stop stroking this tiny little Cinnamon Cider bunny. His fluffy white tail was coloured with the Chalk Marker.

For card two my bunny rabbit has moved to the woods. I’ve stamped him onto Whisper White card stock, coloured him in with my Cinnamon Cider blends and created a landscape using my Basic Black marker to extend the lines in the stamps.

The background Woodland embossing folder really pairs well with the Nature’s Beauty stamps.

Card three continues the woodland theme, this time with a background stamped using the tree trunk stamp from the Winter Wood stamp set. I stamped my tree trunk stamp in Cinnamon Cider ink onto Cinnamon Cider card stock before using my Chalk Marker to add White.

I love how the Wrapped in Texture embossing folder echos the snow I added to the trees. You get two embossing folders in this pack and you’ll find them on page 9 of the August-December 2020 Mini Catalogue.

The white dot on top of my linen thread bow is another new product from the August-December 2020 Mini Catalogue – the All the Trimmings Embellishments on page 25.

All three cards have the same sentiment “Thinking of You” which I created using the marker technique.

The sentiment in the Winter Woods set actually says “Thinking of You This Season” but by using my Cinnamon Cider marker to just colour in the “thinking of you” section of the stamp I was able to create a more versatile and year round sentiment for my cards.

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

Next Tuesday we’ll be showcasing one of the Brights: Coastal Cabana. We hope you can join us all then.

All Dressed Up 21st Birthday Card

All Dressed Up 21st Birthday Card

July is a big birthday month in our family – my dad, brother, 2 nieces and 2 nephews all have their birthdays in July! One of the big birthdays last month was my niece’s 21st and because I wasn’t able to see her in person I made a special card to celebrate her special birthday.

She is super sporty but also very girly. Like most 21 year old girls she loves clothes and shoes, which is why I thought the Dressed To Impressed stamp set would be the perfect set to use for her card.

The co-ordinating All Dressed Up dies were also just perfect because we gave her a gift card for her birthday and this die set has a die to create a little bag which is big enough to fit a gift card.

I haven’t used the brand new hot pink, Magenta Madness, very much yet but I love it in this card. The shoes are coloured in using a Bumblebee marker and Magenta Madness and Misty Moonlight blends before cutting out with the co-ordinating shoe die.

The shoe boxes are easy to make using scraps of crumb cake cut down to size with the Stampin’ Up! paper trimmer.

This gorgeous floral paper is from the Flowers for Every Season 6×6 DSP pack and I also used it to make the gift card mini bag holder. There is a die for the bag handle and cut this out of Magenta Madness to match the card – can you see the cute stitched edging on the bag and the handle?

And how great is the “Life is Short. Buy the shoes” sentiment? I’m sure my niece will be using our gift card to buy some shoes very soon!

I’ll be back to share some colour inspiration on Wednesday but in the meantime to purchase any of the products featured in today’s post, simply click on the product links below.

Art With Heart Colour Creations Showcase: Week 9 Cherry Cobber

Art With Heart Colour Creations Showcase: Week 9 Cherry Cobber

Welcome to week nine of our 2020-2021 Art With Heart Colour Creations Showcase. This week we are bringing you some Cherry Cobbler colour inspiration.

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 9 – Cherry Cobbler

Cherry Cobbler is a deep rich red colour that always makes me think of Christmas and there are plenty of lovely new Cherry Cobbler products in the August-December catalogue (AKA the holiday catalogue), available to purchase from August 4, which is just next week.

Today I’ve used a stamp set that is part of a punch bundle called Christmas Gleaming. You might already have because it was in last year’s holiday catalogue and it is returning this year.

My “Deck the Halls with Boughs of Holly” card doesn’t use the Gleaming Ornaments punch pack – instead I’ve just used the Christmas Gleaming stamp set and simply fussy cut my holly leaves, which was super easy to do using my paper snips.

The holly leaves were stamped with Memento ink onto Whisper White card stock and then coloured them in with light and dark Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and Mossy Meadow blends. I like the contrast between the lighter and the darker leaves.

The Whisper White panel has been embossed with one of the new “Wrapped in Texture” embossing folders – these raised dots reminded me of the holly berries and I think they work well with the holly sprigs. The sentiment was die cut using one of the Stitched So Sweetly dies.

The Wink of Stella pen adds some sparkle and shine to the holly berries. I also heat embossed my sentiment with clear emboss power after I stamped it firstly in Versamark and then in Cherry Cobbler. This is a great technique to remember if you want to emboss in any colour.

Can you see the sparkle and shine? It’s so pretty in real life.

It’s super easy to make your own Cherry Cobbler ribbon and Cherry Cobbler rhinestone jewel. Simply use your dark Cherry Cobbler blend to colour in the Whisper White crinkled seam binding ribbon and the large rhinestone basic jewel and wait a few minutes for the colour to set before adhering to your card.

Hopefully this super close up gives you a better view of my home made Cherry Cobbler ribbon and Cherry Cobbler rhinestone jewel.

I’ll share some other cards I’ve made with this bundle (using the punches as well) later this week.

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

Birds & Branches Birthday Card

Birds & Branches Birthday Card

A few weeks ago I shared some cards I made with this gorgeous Stampin’ Up! Birds & Branches Bundle. I have to admit I’m slightly obsessed with these sweet little birds!

Today I’m sharing a couple more cards made with the Birds & Branches Bundle – this first one has a touch of Misty Moonlight and features some cute little paper flowers from the Boho Indigo product medley.

I love the touch of Misty Moonlight blue on the tummies of the birds, but seriously, how cute are these paper flowers from the Boho Indigo product medley?

They come in two sizes with the little brown wooden button already in the centre of the flower – but you don’t have to buy the entire medley to get the flowers as they also come in the Boho Medley refill.

I cut my branch from one of the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper DSP sheets and the “Happy Birthday” sentiment is from the Blossoms in Bloom bundle.

Card two just uses the Birds and More dies, this time with the In Good Taste DSP as the background layer behind the birds. Doesn’t this wood grain paper look so realistic!

I die cut my birds out of Crumb Cake card stock and finished off the card with a double bow of linen thread.

In case you missed my post four weeks ago, this was the birdhouse card I made also using the Birds & Branches Bundle and the stitched triangle dies. You can see more photos of this card and how I made it here.

These are the stitched triangle dies and Birds and More Dies I used to make my birdhouse card.

The soft pink is Blushing Bride and I used my water painter to add a touch of it to their tummies.

Art With Heart Colour Creations Showcase: Week 8 Calypso Coral

Art With Heart Colour Creations Showcase: Week 8 Calypso Coral

Welcome to week eight 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 8 – Calypso Coral

Calypso Coral is in the subtles family but as the brightest of the subtles it really holds its own when combined with any of the brights, the regals or the neutrals – Calypso Coral really is a versatile colour. So when I saw a card created by Maria Cowans (a Stampin’ Up! demo located in the UK) I decided to create a card like hers, inspired by the Stampin’ Up! logo and using the same stunning colour combination.

Maria’s beautiful card is pictured below beside the Stampin’ Up! folder that inspired her design.

Calypso Coral looks incredible when paired with these other vibrant colours: Night of Navy, Old Olive, Coastal Cabana, Crushed Curry and Whisper White.

Maria used the brand new “All Things Fabulous” bundle to recreate the Stampin’ Up! floral design. This is a fabulous bundle if you enjoy two step stamping – it reminds me of “Jar of Love” which is one of my all time favourite Stampin’ Up! stamp sets.

Would you believe I had just ordered the “All Things Fabulous” bundle but it hadn’t arrived yet? So I decided to make a quite different card, one that uses the same colours in the Stampin’ Up! folder, but made with the floral stamps in the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set instead.

This card was very quick and easy to make. I stamped the large magnolia image and two of the smaller buds onto Watercolour paper using Black StazOn ink.

The Good Morning Magnolia Stamp is a double stamp set and it has co-ordinating Magnolia Memory dies which I used to cut out my flowers.

I used my new Water Painters to colour in my magnolias with Night of Navy, the buds with Calypso Coral, the leaves with Old Olive and the centre of the main flower with Crushed Curry.

Water colouring with ink pads is so easy to do. You simply tap an acrylic block onto the surface of your ink pad to pick up the colour and then lift the ink off your block with your water painters.

Once my water coloured flowers were dry I cut the flowers away from the leaves with my paper snips and trimmed closer to the stamp outline before rearranged the elements onto a Whisper White panel. I adhered this to a Night of Navy card base, which is simply a sheet of A4 card stock cut in half and then folded in half.

The “Thanks” sentiment is stamped in Night of Navy and comes from the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set as well.

As soon as I had finished this card my “All Things Fabulous” bundle arrived in the post! So I decided to make a second card, this time more closely CASED on Maria’s one.

I used the “Wishing you all things fabulous” sentiment from the All Things Fabulous stamp set – I really love sentiments that have two different fonts on them, like this one.

This was such a quick card to make – it took me less than 5 minutes and the design evolved as I went. You really can’t go wrong with a floral stamp set like this.

For several of the Night of Navy and Calypso Coral flowers I stamped off the ink once before stamping the larger part of the flower and then stamped the ink at full strength for the second stamp that forms the middle of the flower.

I’m not sure which card I prefer. But I do think that this Calypso Coral colour combination really works well whether you use it for water colouring or for two set stamping and stamping off.

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

Heart of Christmas: July

Heart of Christmas: July

Welcome to the Heart of Christmas 2020 where the Art with Heart team share their Christmas inspiration with you on the third Monday of each month.

Today I’m sharing with you a card that features some exciting new products from the upcoming Stampin’ Up! August – December mini catalogue. These products will be able to be purchased from August 4th 2020.

The Coming Home Bundle is part of the Trimming the Town Suite, perfect for Christmas Cards, Welcome to Your New Home Cards, male cards, teenage cards…and even congratulations on getting your licence/buying your first car cards with that adorable little car and its matching die cut. Here’s what you get in this bundle.

For my card today I’ve just used the Home Together dies, along with the gorgeous “Lots of love at Christmas” stamp from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set.

I thought this sentiment really suited the card design for two reasons: the curvy shape of the sentiment mirrors the curves of the long horizontal die cuts and the “love at Christmas” references the little Night of Navy house with its silver heart.

I love silver with Night of Navy but Stampin’ Up! doesn’t have a narrow silver ribbon in this current catalogue so I had to get creative! To make my ribbon I cut a narrow strip of silver foil and used the bow die from the “Wreath Builder” dies to cut a bow from silver foil.

The White dot in the centre of my bow is a new embellishment from the Trimming the Town suite – All the Trimmings Embellishments.

Do you recognise the tiny stars, snowflakes and silver circles that embellish my card? They are the Snowflakes Sequins embellishments from last year’s August – December mini and they we be coming back from August 4 in this year’s catalogue too.

My colour combination for this card is very simple but timeless and a real favourite of mine. You can never go wrong with Night of Navy, Smoky Slate, Whisper White and Silver foil.

The lovely Judy May is hosting our Heart of Christmas showcase this year. To see the other Christmas creations go back to Judy’s post.
