Wisteria Wishes in 3D

 Wisteria Wishes is a new bundle from the 2022-2024 Annual Catalogue. I have been experimenting with the stamped images and the die cut images. 

For this card I used the dies to cut out two of the flower bunches from Basic White card stock. I cut three of the leaf stems from Garden Green and Parakeet Party card stock. The twisted vine piece across the top of the white panel is cut from Soft Suede card stock.

I cut two flower stems from Basic White card stock. To add some dimension to the flowers I ran them through the Hive 3D Embossing Folder. 

I used a sponge dauber with Orchid Oasis and Highland Heather ink to add some colour to the raised bits. Before I attached the flowers I added some Balmy Blue ink to the white card stock with a Blending Brush.

The leaf die cuts and twisted branch are attached across the top of the white panel.

I love the amount of texture in this card, I'm very pleased with how it turned out. The greeting, also from the Wisteria Wishes set was perfect for this card.

All of these products are from Stampin' Up! and are available through my online store or through the links below.

Happy stamping,

Colour Creations Blog Hop 2022-2024 In Colours - Sweet Sorbet

Welcome to week 4 of the Colour Creations Blog Hop with the Art With Heart Team. Every week we are featuring one of the Stampin' Up! colours starting with the new 2022-2024 In Colours. This week's colour is Sweet Sorbet. Sweet Sorbet is red that fits between Real Red and Poppy Parade.

For tonight's card I have inked up another of my new stamp sets from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalogue called Amazing Year.

I stamped the main image in Memento Ink so that I could colour using the Blends Markers. The colours I used were Sweet Sorbet, Parakeet Party and Flirty Flamingo. This image was cut out using a circle from the Stylish Shapes Dies. These wonderful dies are so versatile, I was very happy to see that they had returned to our range.

I stamped the tag on a separate piece of card stock and coloured it with Flirty Flamingo Blends Markers. This was attached to the main image with Dimensionals. 
I used a piece of Sweet Sorbet DSP from the 2022-2024 In Colour Pack on the base of the card front.

The scalloped strips across the center of the card are Flirty Flamingo and Parakeet Party, that have been cut using the die from the Scalloped Contours Dies.

On the inside of the card I stamped Birthday Wishes in Memento ink and then the present image in Sweet Sorbet stamped off once.
All of the products I have used on this card are from Stampin' Up! and can be purchased through my online store.

This is the last stop in our blog hop tonight, so to continue on it's to return to the beginning and see what the hugely talented Tina Gillespie has to share with us. Either click on her name or the graphic below to be taken to her blog.

Starry Sky - Elephant Parade and Paradise Palms


I'm back today with two extra cards that I made to feature Starry Sky that were excess to what I needed for yesterday's post.

Today's first card uses the Elephant Parade stamp set. I stamped one of the elephants and 7 of the butterflies onto Fluid 100 Water Colour Paper.

I coloured the images with Water Colour Papers and the ink colours listed below. I cut out the elephant image with one of the Scalloped Contour Dies and the butterflies with the coordinating die.

The Starry Sky card stock background was embossed with the Hive 3D Embossing Folder. The second layer is a piece of Sweet Sorbet DSP, both mounted on an Orchard Oasis card base.

Each of the butterflies has a Basic Rhinestone Jewel in the center that has been coloured with the coordinating Blends Marker.

The second card for today uses the Paradise Palms Bundle.
I started making this card by masking the sun with a circle mask, Daffodil Delight ink and a Blending Brush.

Once the sun was done I removed the mask and added a bit more Daffodil Delight ink around the outside of the sun. I then used Starry Sky ink and another Blending Brush to complete the remainder of the sky, making sure it was darker at the top than the bottom.

The palm tree and grass was cut from Basic Black card stock. These were attached to the card front with Dimensionals.

Inside the card I added the message in black ink and the trio of palm trees in Starry Sky ink, stamped off once.

I hope you like my Starry Sky creations, I will be back soon with more creations from my new 2022-2023 products.
