Art With Heart Colour Creations Showcase: Week 14 Daffodil Delight

Welcome to week fourteen 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 14 – Daffodil Delight

It’s the first week of spring here in Australia so I wanted to make a sunny, happy card using Daffodil Delight. And if there was ever a sunny happy stamp set that was begging to be inked up with Daffodil Delight it’s the Timeless Tropical stamp set with its co-ordinating In the Tropics dies.

Originally I had intended to make a card by water colouring the hibiscus and the frangipani stamp set but when I opened my stamp I realised I had never used the the pineapple die and little pineapple stamp – and I knew they would look great in Daffodil Delight too.

I began by creating a piece of homemade DSP for my background layer using Whisper White card stock.

This homemade DSP was quick and easy to do using just the one small pineapple stamp inked up with the following colour combination: Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Crumb Cake.

The body of the pineapple was created in two layers: die cutting the pineapple in Daffodil Delight card stock and then tracing around the outline of this pineapple die and fussing cutting the die shape out of another piece of Daffodil Delight card stock to layer under the die.

Having a second layer of Daffodil Delight card stock allowed me to use my Daffodil Delight and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends to colour inside the holes of the top layer pineapple die to highlight the “knobbly” bits on the pineapple.

Don’t you love the way this highlights the texture of the pineapple?

The leafy pineapple top was die cut from Old Olive card stock and I used my light and dark Old Olive Stampin’ Blends to add colour variation and texture to it as well.

The Whisper White card stock layer the pineapple is adhered to is die cut with a long rectangle die from the Ornate layers dies and it’s just perfect for the size of the pineapple.

Did you realise the In the Tropics dies include a gorgeous little “Aloha” greeting die? I’ve found the best way to cut and adhere this die is by first cutting a rectangle of card stock slightly larger than the Aloha die and then attaching this card stock to some adhesive sheet.

Once you die cut the Aloha sentiment the adhesive sheet helps keep the word straight, as well as providing the easiest way to adhere it to a card.

The final touch for my pineapple card is a simple bow made from Braided Linen Trim with the ends frayed.

Art With Heart November Blog Hop: Boxes and Gift Bags

Art With Heart November Blog Hop: Boxes and Gift Bags

The Art With Heart Team are back with another inspirational Blog Hop.

This month we are featuring Gift Bags and Boxes, just in time for the Christmas gift giving season. The bags and boxes featured are all made using current Stampin’ Up! products and any of our wonderful team members are happy to help you with the supplies you will need to reproduce these beautiful projects.

The project I’ve made for you tonight is a beach bag with matching card featuring brand new products from the upcoming Stampin’ Up! January -June 2020 Mini Catalogue — it used to be called the Occasions Catalogue.

You can order from this catalogue on the 3rd January 2020 but if you can’t wait until then to get your hands on these goodies, contact me about becoming a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator so you can order them now.

My first step in making my beach bag was to emboss the Crumb Cake card stock using a new embossing folder called the Coastal Weave embossing folder. I embossed 2 pieces of card stock to make my basket. Here’s a closer look at this gorgeous basket weave effect.

I then die cut out 2 pieces using the largest die from the All Dressed Up Dies. These dies are so cute – they come in a bundle with the Dressed to Impress stamp set and there are shapes for shoes, perfume, lipstick, flowers…and everything you need to make a bag, including buttons, buckles and a strap.

You can see in the photo below that the dies on the bottom left are all stitched, which I love!

Joining the two sides of the basket together is very simple and easy using tear and tape, and then the fun begins with decorating the basket.

Instead of using the die for the basket straps I made my own straps by using the new 5/16 (8mm) Braided Burlap Trim. Attaching it is once again very simple, using tear and tape.

I’ve also added some new Best Dressed Tassels in Petal Pink, Pretty Peacock and Whisper White – aren’t they simply divine! If you want to add these tassels, don’t forget to thread them onto your length of trim before you adhere it to the bag.

My matching card uses materials from the Tropical Oasis Suite, including the “Aloha” die from the In the Tropics Dies, the frangipani flower from the Timeless Tropical stamp set and its matching die from the In the Tropics Dies.

The floral card stock is from the Tropical Oasis Memories & More
Card Pack. I’m so in love with all these products!!!

I have a very special person in mind for my gift bag with matching card and I just know she will love this suite as much as I do!
