Coloured In Images August 2018



Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring stamp sets that you can colour in. We hope our blog hop inspires you to pick up some stampin’ write markers, watercolour pencils, stampin blends or another form of colouring medium and colour in with your stamps.
Don’t forget to contact any of the ladies on the blog hop to order any products, especially they limited edition colour your season products.
You have come from the lovely   Amie McIIroy    Blog hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post is a link to the next one.  There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken linesFor my card tonight I chose the gorgeous Great Joy Christmas Stamp set and used the large bauble to colour in  The card base is thick whisper white it is larger than a regular card base, I trimmed the A4 sheet on the long side to 5inches and fold it in half.  The border is Silver foil paper cut about 1/8th inch smaller and another border in whisper white also cut around 1/8th inch.   I wanted just soft colours so used mostly all the light stampin blenders.  The J & Y are eclipsed, I added some glue to the top of the letters and sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds on the top, I did add some Dazzling Diamonds around the bauble as well. I also used the Merry Christmas Thinlets die and used silver foil paper to cut out the word Christmas. 


 The sentiment inside the card is from Merry Christmas to all stamp set, I also stamped and silver embossed the sentiment and the smaller christmas bauble and used the stampin blenders to colour it in.

July Blog Hop Designer Series paper


 
Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring designer series paper. This month, Stampin’ Up! have a special on designer series paper, buy 3, get 1 free! We hope our blog hop inspires you to get crafting with your designer series paper.        
You have come from the lovely Leanne Mitchell    Blog hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post is a link to the next one.  There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken lines
The Designer Series Paper I chose is the Tea Room paper, this paper is not as thick as some of the others which make this perfect for the 2 projects I made.  The first one is a cute party hat which will be for my niece Lily on her 11th birthday.  I just used a cereal box or you can use any soft cardboard I pulled apart a cheap old party hat as a template and used liquid tombow to glue together.  The silver ribbon is retired but I needed silver so used it, the other ribbons are Rich Razzelberry Velvet and metallic edge Berry Burst.  The flower I made out of vellum which I have a few in my stash I made a while ago, you can use a pompom if you like.  I cut the silver circle out using the starburst punch and cut out the 11 with Rose Shimmer Paper and used the sentiment from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set using Rich Razzelberry ink and popped it up with some dimemsionals.




For my second project I made an envelope flip book style to add small gifts.  I used 4 Whisper White envelopes and scored 1/4inch above the fold line of each envelope, I then added score tape just above the fold and a bit of liquid glue and adhered each envelope (if you google envelope flip book there are lots of tutorials very easy) after that its up to you how you decorate it, I also used a 2 1/4n inch punch and punch out a semi circle opening so you can get the goodies in and out easier.  The butterfly is cut out of Rose glimmer paper and I used the Springtime impression thinlet. For the border on each page I used the Edgelit Thinlet set these are beautiful and cut out easily.


The above picture is what I put in the inside of each pocket.  I made the little see through bags using vellum and washy tape and put in our new buttons. Its also a good way to use up your retired stock to give as gifts.

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects CASED from the annual catalogue. If you would like a copy of the 2018 -2019 annual catalogue, contact any of the girls on the blog hop and we will get in touch with you.
You have come from the lovely Kimberly Hern  Blog hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post is a link to the next one. 
For my 1st project casing the catalogue I chose the Botanical Bliss Tag set, I love my tags you may have noticed so when I saw this set in the catalogue it was a must have for me.  I just changed the colours but pretty much copied them the same way.





My second project I chose the Springtime Impression Thinlets Dies to make this colourful card.  The card is on page 128 again I just changed the colours and instead of using ribbon I used bakers twine that comes in a packet of 4 colours and added some self adhesive basic sequins.





Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the very talented Caroline Manwaring

Hi everyone welcome to our May blog hop, for my first project I made this cute gift bag. The black part of the bag topper I cut out of black card stock using the largest oval framelit and the green is cut using the stitched labels framelits and the DSP is Share what you love.




My second project is a book mark, the cardstock is the new Pineapple Punch colour.  The Graceful Glass Designer vellum makes a perfect background.  I coloured the back of the vellum using Stampin'Up! markers, and then laminated it.
For this birthday card I used the new Lovely Lipstick card stock, the top of the card I used the Garden Impressions DSP, the lovely cream lace paper is from the Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut DSP, I added some navy cord ribbon (which is retiring) in the middle. The sentiment is from the Painted glass stamp set and I used the Everyday Label punch and going around with a sponge dauber.  Flowers are made by punching out 2 DSP and 1 Vellum using the pansy punch (also retiring) and adding pearls in the centre of each flower.
My fourth and final project is a vintage style tag, loved making this one.  I used mossy meadows card stock (very happy this came back) for the tag which measures 3" x 6", I also sponged around the tag.  For the flower I once again used the pansy punch and sponged crumb cake using a dauber, when the ink dried I glued 3 together the 4th one I scrunched really well so it would stand up in the middle.  The DSP is also from Share what you Love, I sponged Crumb Cake onto a white doily.  The stamp set is the Hostess one Hand Delivered, instead of stamping the balloons I used the 1' circle punch and used the new In colour cardstock, Lovely Lipstick, Grapefruit Grove, Pineapple Punch, Call me Clover and Blueberry Bushell, I added some glue and sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds on top. I finished off using gold mini sequins, Rich Razzelberry and  Gold 1/8''.

Contact anyone on the blog hop to place your last chance order today.

Hi everyone, I am sad to see this set go, I have just loved using the Magical Day Bundle.  It was fun making this cute journal. I laminated the cover, the 3 books and the 3 bookmarks for extra strength which is great for carrying around in your handbag and it wont get wrecked.  There are lots of tutorials for these journals and variety of sizes to choose from they can be easily adapted to what size suits your needs, this journal measures   11 3/4 x 61/2. I made the rosette using Bermuda Bay card stock and cut a scallop circle using the 1 1/8 punch.  Inside the front cover I glued on a post it note pad and added a 1/2 inch strip of unicorn paper and 2 cute little post it note flag size, these I purchased from a variety store similar to the $2 shops. To keep the notebooks closed I used the birthday mini binder clips. 
Pockets were placed on the front of each cover, 3 in total.  The picture above is the 1st booklet which I placed a diary I bought from Lincraft (you can pretty much buy them anywhere like the $2 shops).  I did not staple any of the pages from the dairy or lined pages so they could easily be replaced. 
The booklet above is the second one, I could not find any paper pads this size so I bought one of the school exercise books from Kmart and used my guillotine, I pulled the cover off and left the staples in until I finished cutting.  I placed the closed coverless book in first and measured 6 1/4 across and cut the excess off down the side then turned around and and cut at 7 1/4 this is the width so it opens like a book.  You can make them to any size that suits you. On the top of the page I added a piece of mermaid paper to pretty it up a bit.
I made a card using the Whisper White narrow card and envelope set and placed that in the back pocket.
And lastly I made these 3 cute book marks one for each booklet, these were also laminated.
