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.
