Welcome to week thirty two 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 Night of Navy from the neutrals family.
This is a special card I made for my sister-in-law’s birthday last week. My present to her is a girl’s night out together at the Open Air cinema, a new tradition we started last year.
I highly recommend this experience to anyone who is visiting Sydney, as you get to enjoy a drink and a meal, before watching a movie on a giant outdoor screen that rises up from our iconic Sydney Harbour!
To recreate the Open Air Cinema experience I decided to make a double easel card, using the Stitched Rectangle Dies to create the actual cinema screen in the harbour.
Here’s what the card looks like when it’s closed.
Laid out flat…
Folded into an easel…
We always drink champagne together to start the night so I stamped one of the images from the “In The Moment” stamp set twice and fussy cut it out to show us both enjoying a drink and looking at the view before the movie starts.
Hang on a sec! What is the Designer Series Paper you’ve used for the front of the card and the inside harbour scene, I hear you ask?
By The Bay is a gorgeous 6×6 DSP from the January–April 2023 Mini Catalogue, which will be available from January 5. It’s part of the By The Bay suite and one side of all of the DSP designs is pearlised – so stunning!
I’ve used one of the pearlised patterns for the front of my double easel card. To tie it flat I’ve used another new product from the catalogue: Night of Navy Bordered Ribbon.
The Sydney Harbour Bridge and birds in the sky are created using the Waterfall dies, currently on sale in the clearance rack and reduced to $26.
Other products used in the card include the Biggest Wish stamp set for the birthday sentiment, the Breaking News Stamp set for the clinking champagne glasses and heart, and the Floral Gallery Dies for the sentiment on the front of the card.
Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Fiona Ryan – I can’t wait to see what Fiona has made this week!

If you live in Australia, you can find and purchase these products in my Stampin’ Up! Online Store.
Next Wednesday will be our last blog hop for 2022 and we will be showcasing one of the Regals, Old Olive.
We’ll then return after a two week Christmas break on January 4 with Pacific Point.
I hope you can join us then.
