Rococo Rose Gilded Butterflies

 

I made today's card a while ago as I was playing with the Gilded Leafing. I wanted to share it with you before Rococo Rose retires.

The stamp sets I used for this card are Very Versailles and Butterfly Brilliance. The Crumb Cake background piece has been stamped in Crumb Cake with Very Versailles.

I stamped the leaves in Versamark on a Merry Merlot piece and then applied Heat & Stick Powder, heated and applied the Gilded Leafing.

The butterflies were stamped in Crumb Cake and lightly coloured with a Water Colour Painter and Rococo Rose ink. I fussy cut the images instead of using the dies as I didn't want an edge around the butterflies.


The final touch is a piece of Rococo Rose Scalloped Linen Ribbon across the card.

More Elegantly Said - Fresh Freesia

While I had the Elegantly Said Bundle out on my desk I was inspired to continue playing. For this card I used my new Fresh Freesia ink and the Scalloped Contour Dies. 


I stamped the filigree stamp and the lace border in Fresh Freesia. The greeting was heat embossed in Silver and there is a piece of silver twine wrapped around the white scalloped rectangle.

I cut two pieces of silver foil with the middle size Scalloped Contour Die and attached them behind the white scalloped piece.


A few Rhinestone Jewels finish the card.

Stay tuned for more sneak peeks from the upcoming catalogue.

Happy stamping,
Rachel

Art With Heart Colour Creation Showcase week 44 - Sahara Sand

 


Hello stampers, today's card was made for the Art With Heart Team Colour Creation Showcase. This week we are back to alphabetical order, which means we are featuring Sahara Sand.
For today's card I dipped into my box of brand new preorder goodies from the upcoming 2021-2022 Stampin' Up! Catalogue. The bundle I have used is called Elegantly Said and it includes the Elegantly Said stamp set and the Elegant Tag Punch.

I stamped the main filigree image in the top right and the bottom left corner of the card front in Craft White Ink. I stamped a small section of the stamp onto the edge of the Elegant Tag Punch. To speed up the drying process I heated white images with my heat gun. 


Once the Craft Ink was dry I stamped the greeting in Stazon Black. The bow is Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon. A few Rhinestone Jewels complete the card.


This beautiful bundle will be available from the 4th of May, once the new Stampin' Up! annual Catalogue has begun. To receive your own copy of this catalogue of for any questions about my project please contact me.


For more amazing Sahara Sand inspiration, check out what the Art With Heart Team have to share with you by heading to Cathy's Blog.

Happy stamping,

Introducing the 2021-2023 In Colours - Fresh Freesia

 


The final 2021-2023 In Colour I have to share with you is Fresh Freesia. Fresh Freesia is a beautiful pinky/purple colour. It's a little like Purple Posy but a darker shade.


For this card I used Fresh Freesia for the card base and a piece of In Colour DSP for the strip across the center. The edging on either side of the DSP is cut using the largest die from the Scalloped Contour dies, I trimmed each of the long edges and used one for either side.


The greeting is stamped on the smallest Scalloped Contour die. I attached a small bow from the Fresh Freesia Open Weave Ribbon, below the greeting. The floral image from the Colour and Contour stamp set  was stamped in Fresh Freesia and cut out.


I hope you like our 5 new In Colours, I'm looking forward to using them for the next two years.
I will be back soon with more cards to show you.

Happy stamping,
Rachel

Introducing the 2021-2023 In Colours - Evening Evergreen

 



The fourth new In Colour I have to share with you is Evening Evergreen.


Evening Evergreen is a deep, elegant green, that as you can see from above is significantly darker than any green currently in the range. I can't wait to pair this colour with our reds for my Christmas cards.
For today's card I have used some Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent DSP from the 2021-2023 In Colour DSP pack. They were cut using the Scalloped Contour dies. I love how well these colours complement each other.


The greeting and the little dots are from the Colour and Contour stamp set and have been stamped in Evening Evergreen ink. 


I attached a piece of Open Weave Ribbon in Evening Evergreen behind the greeting. 

I have one new In Colour to show you tomorrow.
If you have any questions or would like a copy of the new catalogue please contact me.

Thanks for visiting,

Introducing the 2021-2023 In Colours - Pale Papaya

 


Here is the third new 2021-2023 in colour called Pale Papaya.


Pale Papaya is a light orange shade that fits more with the oranges than I have shown in the comparison above.

To showcase Pale Papaya I have again used the Colour & Contour stamp set and dies bundle.


I used the scallop border dies to cut the edge of a piece of 2021-2023 In Colour DSP. This was mounted on a Thick Basic White card base. I stamped a greeting from the Etched in Nature stamp set in Pale Papaya.

I stamped and die cut the daisy image three times and arranged them on the front of the card. Before I attached the flowers I wrapped a piece of the Open Weave Ribbon around the card front.

I will be back tomorrow with the fourth new In Colour - Evening Evergreen.

Thanks for visiting,
Rachel

Introducing the new In Colours 2021-2023 Soft Succulent

 I have the second new In Colour to share with you tonight, Soft Succulent. This soft, muted green has a touch of gray in it and will be perfect for colouring our succulent stamps (of course).


I have made this colour comparison to show you where Soft Succulent fits into our colour range.

The card I have made to feature this colour uses the Colour and Contour stamp set, which is available from the 4th of May in the 2021-2022 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. If you do not have a copy yet and do not already have a demonstrator let me know and I will send one to you.


Again I have used the Scalloped Contour dies for the background, making a frame from one to highlight the floral sprig.


I have stamped the greeting in Soft Succulent then fussy cut around the different lines to make it another feature on the card. The final addition is a piece of Soft Succulent Open Weave Ribbon. These lovely ribbons are available in all 5 new In colours.
