Crumb Cake Card – Week 15 AWH Colour Creations

Crumb Cake Card – Week 15 AWH Colour Creations

Welcome to week fifteen of our Art With Heart 2022-23 Colour Creations blog hop! This is a weekly blog hop where we showcase the stunning range of Stampin’ Up! colours in alphabetical order over 12 months and this week we are featuring one of my very favourite colours – Crumb Cake.

I love Crumb Cake so much because it is such a wonderful neutral that works with every single colour. I wanted to make it the feature colour on this card by only adding Basic White and just a touch of Real Red, but I might have added too much red!.

My card is actually CASED from this incredible card created last year by UK demonstrator and former Artisan designer, Emma Goddard. Isn’t this card simply stunning?

I loved the loved the colour combination of Real Red and Crumb Cake, as well as the effect she created by heat embossing a large word stamp, then dry embossing it with an embossing folder and then, finally, blending Crumb Cake ink over the top to make the word pop out and highlight the texture of the embossing folder.

As many of these products are now retired, I had to get creative and CASE this design with current Stampin’ up! products.

  • The “Sending” stamp is from the Sending Smiles stamp set
  • The “Christmas Wishes” is from the Leaves of Holly Stamp set
  • The dry embossing is created with the “Wintry” embossing folder
  • The double bow is created using the Bakers Twine Essentials and the Real Red & Garden Green 3/8″ (1 cm) Ribbon Combo Pack

The white heat embossed word is invisible until you blend the Crumb Cake ink over it with a blending brush.

The “Christmas wishes” sentiment was also heat embossed in white onto Basic White Cardstock and then I rubbed Real Red ink over the top and cut the sentiment in half.

To achieve the white border of Emma’s “Merry and” reverse stamps I mounted the Christmas wishes sentiment onto some Basic White card stock before attaching to the card.

The Real Red Ribbon was cut in half lengthways before tying into a bow and the top bow is Crumb Cake bakers twine from the Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack, however you could use Linen Thread as well.

Red Rhinestone jewels popped into the middle of the snowflakes complete the card.

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

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Cards – AWH Heart of Christmas

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Cards – AWH Heart of Christmas

Welcome to week six of the Heart Of Christmas Blog Hop!

Ten more products have just been added to Sale-a-bration, so I’ve paired two of these new Sale-a-bration items – the gold foil from the Brushed Metallic cardstock pack and silver foil from the Silver Foil Specialty pack – with the existing Sale-a-bration Gold and Silver DSP for my two modern Christmas cards.

NOTE: If you would like to redeem your Sale-a-bration credits for these new items, make sure you use the codes below, instead of the original product codes they have in the catalogue they appear in.

My “non-traditional” Christmas cards were inspired by a video where Stampin’ Up used the Rays of Light Stamp set to stamp on the Silver & Gold DSP.

TOP TIP – use your Stamparatus to stamp large background stamps like this one.

This sparkly Silver & Gold DSP works really well with the gorgeous sentiment stamp I’ve used from the “Very Best Occasions” stamp set. I love this sentiment – bring on the sparkle and banish the stress of Christmas, I say!

I’ve used two of the new 2022-24 In Colours for my cards today – Parakeet Party paired with silver foil and Sweet Sorbet paired with gold foil.

I used a paper trimmer to cut out the gold embossed sentiment, adding red rhinestones as holly berries to the sentiment.

The gold frame is created using the largest and third largest stitched rectangle dies, with the stamped DSP die cut out with the second largest stitched rectangle die.

While I layered the gold frame behind the DSP for the Sweet Sorbet card, I decided to place the silver frame over the top of the stamped DSP for the Parakeet Party card.

The sentiment for the Parakeet Party card was die cut using layering circle dies and Rhinestone Basic Jewels embellish the sentiment.

I know which card I like the best, but I’m curious to find out which variation you prefer? Do you think this design is too modern and graphic for Christmas cards?

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

Coastal Cabana Birthday Card – Week 14 AWH Colour Creations

Coastal Cabana Birthday Card – Week 14 AWH Colour Creations

Welcome to week fourteen of our Art With Heart 2022-23 Colour Creations blog hop! This is a weekly blog hop where we showcase the stunning range of Stampin’ Up! colours in alphabetical order over 12 months and this week we are featuring Coastal Cabana.

A special friend deserves a special card, especially if they are a crafter. My special friend, Jenny, celebrates her birthday this week and guess what? She owns a vintage caravan, has two dogs and lives by the sea.

Sadly, her corporate job does not allow much time for Jen to craft anymore, but I know she will enjoy receiving this side step birthday card that includes and celebrates many of her favourite things!

Coastal Cabana is also one of Jenny’s favourite colours and it features on her caravan, so I used the Tree Lot Dies to recreate Sylvia, her vintage caravan, in silver foil, Coastal Cabana and Basic Black, decorated with a Bermuda Bay bunting!

If you’re still thinking about getting these free (with any order over $180), adorable Sale-a-bration dies, run, don’t walk! They have already sold out in other countries and there’s only 4 weeks left of sale-a-bration!

There are 24 dies in total in the Tree Lots Die set, and yes, I’m including a set of these dies as part of Jen’s birthday present. Hopefully they will inspire her to craft again as I really miss crafting with her!

The sky background has been created using Tahitian Tide ink applied with a blending brush – the clouds are from the “Give it a Whirl” Dies.

The sand hills are cut with the Basic Borders dies, while the palm trees, grass and the sun are all die cut using the Palms Dies.

Why didn’t I use Sahara Sand for the sandhills? Fun fact – the beach where Jenny lives actually has a dark and coarse sand that it is closer in colour to Crumb Cake than it is to Sahara Sand.

If you’d like to create a side step card yourself, here is the step-by-step metric template I designed last year to minimise waste so you can make two side step cards per A4 sheet of cardstock.

Side Step card template

Please note – for tonight’s card I have changed one of the measurements on my template below.

Instead of measuring in 8 cm from one side, I measured in 10 cm to allow enough room for my caravan and palm trees. All of the other measurements are the same as below.

  1. Measure in 10 cm from the left (or 8 cm as per the template above) on the 14.8 cm side of your card base and draw a pencil line from top to bottom.
  2. Along this pencil line, measure down 4.5cm from the top of the card stock and measure up 2.5 cm from the base of the card stock. The solid line in between these 2 measurements is your only cutting line for this card – I’ve marked this as a solid black line in my template.
  3. Cut along this solid line, being very careful not to cut above or below this line.
  4. All the other dotted lines are fold lines – measure and score these with your paper trimmer.
  5. Once you’ve scored these lines, rub out the pencil mark along your cut line and fold the score lines. Your card base is now ready to decorate.

Here’s another look what my vintage caravan side step card looks like from the side. It folds flat to fit into a standard C6 Envelope for posting.

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

Bronwyn’s Birthday Blog Hop #5 – Fancy Folds

Bronwyn’s Birthday Blog Hop #5 – Fancy Folds

Welcome to Bronwyn’s fifth Birthday Blog hop! You might have come to my blog from Nikki Spencer.

We’re a group of stamping friends who are celebrating Bron’s 60th Birthday in 2022 with six blog hops, over six months, with six fun themes! Tonight we are sharing fancy folds, a style of cardamking which Bronwyn specialises in!

My card tonight is a very simple fancy fold, but it was just perfect for the stamp set I am using – the “Vintage Tools” stamp set. I made this card for my father’s birthday last month.

My dad is an incredible woodworker and craftsman and when my parents downsized homes I was lucky enough to inherit some of his vintage tools – many of these tools originally belonged to my grandfather.

So you can see why I decided to make a pop-up tool bench.

I got the idea for the paper shavings on the front of the card from an overseas Stampin ‘Up Demonstrator called Robin Broome, whose husband is a professional woodworker.

These paper curls are so cool and I love how they make the front of the card 3D too!

The textured wood on the front of the card is created by wiping the top inside section of the Timber Embossing Folder with Early Espresso ink before using it to emboss Crumb Cake cardstock. Once the cardstock is embossed, run the embossing folder under water to clean.

The pegboard is created using the Dots & Spots Die, aged with some Soft Suede ink blended onto the Basic White card stock with a blending brush.

All of the tools, both inside and out, have been coloured using Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends and then fussy cut with paper snips.

To reinforce the legs of the tool bench I added an extra strip of cardstock under the legs.

The tool bench drawer is die cut with the Stitched Rectangle die and the handles are Matte Black dots.

Here’s what it looks like from above when popped up!

I love creating very personalised cards for my family and friends.

Next up on Bronwyn’s Birthday Blog hop is my friend Andrea Sargent. I can’t wait to see what Andrea has created today! If you get lost or a link is broken, the birthday girl, Bronwyn, has a list of all the participants on her blog.

If you live in Australia, you can find and purchase these products in my Stampin’ Up! Online Store.

I’ll be back in just one hour with the Art With Heart Colour Creations blog hop, where we will be showcasing Coastal Cabana.

Coincidently, I’ve also created a fancy fold for this blog hop too, so it’s a double fancy fold and double blog hop night for me.

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

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Cards– AWH Heart of Christmas

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Cards– AWH Heart of Christmas

Welcome to week five of the Heart Of Christmas Blog Hop!

My card this week is brought to you by the stamped and die cut pieces I rejected from my Cherry Cobbler card last week, repurposed this week to make a slimline Christmas card!

I have to confess I bought the Leaves of Holly Bundle (the Leaves of Holly Stamp Set and the Holly Berry Dies) mainly because I love this sentiment die with its holly frame!

I was worried about how to use the holly leaves and berries on a card as they are quite large, so I decided to leave the background layer quite plain, using cardstock instead of DSP and extending the length of the card to a slimline card.

I used the scoring blade on my paper trimmer to score the Shaded Spruce cardstock at 5 mm intervals, creating a clean and modern embossed layer that lets the oversized holly berries and leaves take centre stage.

A length of white bakers twine was wrapped twice around the Shaded Spruce layer before the stamped “Seasons Greetings” sentiment and holly leaves and berries were adhered to the front of the card.

To make an envelope for my 20 x 10 cm slimline card I used the coordinating Boughs of Holly 12″ x 12″ (30.5 x 30.5 cm) Designer Series Paper.

It’s very simple to make a matching envelope for any sized card. All you need is a paper trimmer, tear’n’tape adhesive and some brads and bakers twine for the closing mechanism.

To work out the size of the envelope add 1 cm to the length and the height of the card so it has enough room to easily slide in and out. Then work out how much overlap is needed in the middle of the card to adhere the sides of the envelope together.

Slimline Envelope instructions for a 20×10 slimline card

  • Using 12×12 DSP, score at 7 cm and 18 cm and then cut at 23 cm
  • Rotate the DSP once and score at 2.5 cm and 24.5cm
  • Cut away the 4 corner pieces away
  • Add a strip of tear’n’tape to the length of the 5 cm side flap
  • Cut an angle in to both sides the top and the bottom flaps – I eyeball it, but it’s around 1cm at its widest point
  • Fold the sides in, adhering the 5cm flap over the top of the 7 cm flap.
  • Add tear’n’tape to the bottom 2.5cm flap and adhere it to form the base of the envelope
  • Form the closure using two brads and another length of white bakers twine.

For the front of the envelope that gorgeous sentiment die is used as an address label, decorated with holly berries.

Cherry Cobbler Christmas Card – Week 12 AWH Colour Creations

Cherry Cobbler Christmas Card – Week 12 AWH Colour Creations

Welcome to week twelve of our Art With Heart 2022-23 Colour Creations blog hop! This is a weekly blog hop where we showcase the stunning range of Stampin’ Up! colours in alphabetical order over 12 months and this week we are featuring Cherry Cobbler.

I love Cherry Cobbler on Christmas cards so I’ve paired it with the FREE (with $90 order) Rings of Love DSP to make a Christmas card for this week.

The gorgeous Rings of Love DSP and other Sale-a-bration products are only available until August 31, or when sold out – the Pool Party & Soft Sea Foam Cards & Envelopes have already sold out.

I’ve used the tree ring pattern from the Rings of Love DSP for my card because the tree rings on this patterned paper can be die cut and embossed using the all-in-one Tree Rings Hybrid Embossing Folder. 

I love the realistic texture this Hybrid Embossing Folder gives to the tree rings and I don’t have to stamp a thing!

This is how I lined up the tree ring images on the DSP with the all-in-one Tree Rings Hybrid Embossing Folder. Using a glue dot really helps.

The Timber embossing folder on the Basic white card stock layer was the perfect match for the embossed tree rings.

I used my light and dark Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends to colour in the twigs, branches and berries, all die cut using the smaller dies from the Tree Rings dies.

The sentiment is from the Christmas to Remember Stamp Set, stamped in Cherry Cobbler and die cut using the Seasonal Labels die.

The Cherry Cobbler pearls come from the Festive Pearls and a linen thread bow completes the card.

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

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Cards– AWH Heart of Christmas

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Cards– AWH Heart of Christmas

Welcome to week four of the Heart Of Christmas Blog Hop!

One of the FREE Sale-a-bration items you can earn with a $90 spend is this gorgeous Silver & Gold 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper. You receive 24 sheets in the pack, 12 each in 2 patterns (spots and stripes) and 2 colours (silver and gold).

In week 2 of our Heart of Christmas blog hop, the lovely Rosa Leyden made some gorgeous cards using the gold patterns from this DSP and the layering circle dies.

I loved her layout so much that I decided to use the silver patterns from this DSP to create 3 quite different cards that are all inspired by Rosa’s layout. Using a layout that you like as a sketch is a fabulous way to create cards. Thank you so much for the inspiration, Rosa!

The color combination for my cards comes from some of the colours in the Storybook Gnomes DSP – Pool Party, Coastal Cabana and Pacific Point, along with the silver and white of the Silver & Gold DSP.

Card one features the adorable caravan from another Sale-a-bration item, the Tree Lot Dies. The die cut circle of Silver & Gold DSP gives the effect of snow falling behind the caravan.

The reverse side of the Storybook Gnomes DSP has some lovely patterns in greens, aquas and blues – this pattern is my favourite. I’ve used a blending brush to add a touch of Pool Party to soften the edge of this DSP.

Did you realise that the “Season’s Greetings” sentiment from the Penguin Place Stamp Set fits perfectly in the caravan window! How cute is that!

The striped pattern from the Silver & Gold DSP works well with the trees from the Trees For Sale stamp set, making the trees look taller. I die cut these trees and the sentiment using the coordinating Sale-a-bration Tree Lot Dies.

The little silver stars are also from the Tree Lot Dies. I can’t stop using this die set, I love it so much!

The “Season’s Greetings” sentiment from the Penguin Place Stamp Set also fits perfectly in this sign die from the Tree Lot Dies.

Like the first two cards, card three also uses the Silver & Gold DSP and the Pool Party sheer ribbon. I’ve also used the soft snowflake pattern from the Storybook Gnomes DSP.

I’ve used the window “offcut” from a caravan that I die cut for another card for the sentiment on this card and the stars/snowflakes (I’m not sure exactly what they are!) are die cut using the Decorated Pine Dies.

Each star/snowflake has a small Rhinestone Basic Jewel in its centre.

Calypso Coral True Beauty Sympathy Card – Week 12 AWH Colour Creations

Calypso Coral True Beauty Sympathy Card – Week 12 AWH Colour Creations

Welcome to week twelve of our Art With Heart 2022-23 Colour Creations blog hop! This is a weekly blog hop where we showcase the stunning range of Stampin’ Up! colours in alphabetical order over 12 months and this week we are featuring Calypso Coral.

Unfortunately, I had to make some sympathy cards this week so I reached for the Awash in Beauty suite. I love the soft watercolour flowers in this suite and the sentiments in the True Beauty Stamp Set include “Here for you always” and “with love” – just perfect for a sympathy card.

This large lattice die can be used for masking or as a background die to give an embossed effect as I’ve done on this card.

Just remember to attach an adhesive sheet to the card stock before die cutting – it makes it very easy to position and adhere to the card base.

Would you believe that apart from the sentiment, there is no stamping at all on this card? These gorgeous flowers and leaves are all images from the Awash in Beauty Designer Series Paper, die cut with the coordinating Organic Beauty dies.

I love how Calypso Coral looks when it’s paired with these other colours in a bunch of flowers.

The “Here For You Always” sentiment was stamped in Mossy Meadow onto a 3/4 inch strip of DSP and then cut to the desired length using the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch.

My favourite ribbon from the July-December Mini catalogue is the Gold & Vanilla 3/8″ (1 cm) Satin Edged Ribbon. I’ve cut a length of it in half to create a double bow with the metallic Simply Elegant Trim.

Because this card wasn’t going in the post – it was hand delivered with a bunch of flowers – I used my bone folder and fingers to curl up the edges of all of the flowers, adding a lot of dimension to the card.

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

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Cards– AWH Heart of Christmas

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Cards– AWH Heart of Christmas

Welcome to week three of the Heart Of Christmas Blog Hop!

Tonight I’m using a beautiful stamp set that really does all the work for you when making Christmas cards – the “Peace to You” stamp set.

I love this style of stamp as all you have to do is ink up your stamp, add a sentiment and you’ve made a gorgeous card.

It’s the perfect stamp for mass production, however I would recommend using a Stamparatus to ensure that lovely inky dark sky is evenly stamped up.

I die cut the stamped image out using the 3rd largest stitched rectangle die which adds a slim white border to the stamped layer.

The card base and matching envelope is one of the new Kraft Note Cards and envelopes (page 137 of the Annual Catalogue). These are a great versatile and neutral background layer for any colour!

The “Silent Night, Holy Night” sentiment is die cut with another stitched rectangle die and layered onto a piece of Natural Finish ribbon which I frayed at the ends.

The FREE SALE-a-bration Tree Lot Dies have a die that cuts 3 tiny stars – I’ve used this die to die cut silver foil stars for the tops of the trees. Isn’t the detail in these tiny stars just gorgeous!

I’ve also added a few silver stars to the inside of the card too. The “Peace to you at Christmas” is another sentiment from the “Peace For you” stamp set and it’s a sentiment that is particularly pertinent for the world right now.

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

Cajun Craze Slimline Slider Caravan Card – Week 11 AWH Colour Creations

Cajun Craze Slimline Slider Caravan Card – Week 11 AWH Colour Creations

Welcome to week eleven of our Art With Heart 2022-23 Colour Creations blog hop! This is a weekly blog hop where we showcase the stunning range of Stampin’ Up! colours in alphabetical order over 12 months and this week we are featuring Cajun Craze.

As soon as I saw this vintage Combi die cut in the “He’s the Man” designer series paper I knew exactly how I would use it – to tow the caravan from the free SALE-a-bration Tree Lot dies in a slimline slider card!

The colour combination for my Cajun Craze slimline slider card was also inspired by the retro colour combination in the “He’s the Man” designer series paper: Basic Black, Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Early Espresso, Sahara Sand, Soft Succulent, with the addition of some Evening Evergreen.

The Cajun Craze element of the card is the mountains and the rocks, stamped in both Early Espresso and Cajun Craze onto Cajun Craze card stock. Using the darker mountains stamped in Early Espresso at the front and the lighter mountains at the back gives instant dimension to the card.

The “grass” is made using the tallest Mountain Air tree die, used to die cut Evening Evergreen card stock with branches trimmed from the tree and adhered sideways to become grass. The “rocks” are trimmed tops of the mountains.

Here’s a quick 25 second video that shows you how my slimline slider card works, as well as the inside of my card.

The slot for the slider mechanism is created using the long thin die from Sending Dies. I die cut it twice to make one long channel.

There’s a great arrow die cut in the “He’s the Man” designer series paper that would work well for the end of the pull mechanism, however the negative window piece from the silver die cut caravan inside my card was sturdier and looked very smart, so I used that instead.

The blended background for the card is created with Evening Evergreen and Pool Party ink, applied with blending brushes.

The sentiment is another die cut from the “He’s the Man” designer series paper and the cloud and the little birds are both stamps from the Mountain Air stamp set.

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