Full Of Perks!

Hello and welcome to Week 2 of my Coastal Cabana Colour Challenge. If you missed Week 1, you can find it here. This week the colour combination is: Coastal Cabana, Soft Sea Foam and Pumpkin Pie! I’ll admit that this one had me stumped for a while. This is not a combination that I would ever have thought of using. However, I decided to use the Stampin’ Up! Press On Stamp Set and came up with this Full Of Perks Card…

Let’s Make It…

Create a (standard A6) card base from Coastal Cabana cardstock. Follow this with a card front of Whisper White cardstock measuring 10 x 14.4 cm.

Stamp the small cups in the bottom right corner using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Colour the images using the Pumpkin Pie and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Combos.

Stamp the sentiment in Coastal Cabana ink onto Whisper White cardstock. Cut out the sentiment using the relevant Stitched Rectangles Die. Cut out a piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock using the next biggest die. Layer these up using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Double over a length of Coastal Cabana Ribbon (from the Playing With Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack) and adhere to the back of the sentiment piece using Tear & Tape. Adhere the sentiment piece to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lovely You Smile Card

Hello and welcome! Today I’d like to share with you a card I created for a Colour Inspiration Challenge. I could not resist this colour scheme (see image below) so I created this Stampin’ Up! Lovely You Smile Card…

Stampin' Up! Lovely You Smile Card by Helen Chapman Handmade Crafts

Let’s Make It…

Start with a Basic Black (standard A6) card base. Next cut a layer of Melon Mambo cardstock to 8.5 x 12.9 cm. The main card front is a layer of Whisper White cardstock measuring 8.2 x 12.6 cm.

Stamp the foliage around the edge of the card front in Just Jade ink. Concentrate on filling the top right corner, round clockwise, to the bottom left corner. Next stamp a few of the flower images in Melon Mambo ink.

Trim a piece of Basic Black cardstock to 2.5 x 8 cm and shape using the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch. Also shape a piece of 1.9 x 9 cm Melon Mambo cardstock and a piece of 1.2 x 8 cm Whisper White cardstock.

Stamp the ‘smile’ sentiment onto the Whisper White strip in Just Jade ink. Stamp over to the left hand edge of the strip. Layer up all the labels using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhere to the card front using Stampin’ Dimesionals.

For the final touch, add a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels around the card.

What do you think to my Lovely You Smile Card?

I hope you like my Stampin’ Up! Lovely You Smile Card. Do you like this colour scheme? I think the contrast between the Basic Black and the Melon Mambo and Just Jade is fabulous! It seems to make them look even more vibrant.

Coastal Cabana Monochrome Card

Hello and welcome to a brand new month of Colour Challenges! First up we have my Coastal Cabana Monochrome Card. I immediately thought of the Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home Stamp Set for this card and here is what I created…

Stampin' Up! Sailing Home Coastal Cabana Monochrome Card by Helen Chapman Handmade Crafts

Let’s make it…

The (standard A6) card base is created from Coastal Cabana cardstock. This is followed by a layer of Whisper White cardstock measuring 10 x 14.4 cm, which forms the main card front.

Onto the card front I stamped the ‘You Are My True North’ sentiment multiple times – using first, second and third generation stamping – in Coastal Cabana ink. In the gaps between the sentiments I stamped the birds image and the compass image, also in Coastal Cabana ink.

I used the coordinating Smooth Sailing dies to cut out the ships wheel from Coastal Cabana cardstock. This was adhered to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Into the centre I placed one of the Playing With Patterns Resin Dots to provided the finishing touch.

What do you think to my Coastal Cabana Monochrome Card?

I hope you like my Coastal Cabana Monochrome Card! I think this is probably the simplest card I have created using the Sailing Home Stamp Set and Smooth Sailing Dies! My original idea was more complex but I stopped at this stage because I really liked the simplicity of it.

Seaside Spray Colour Challenge 4

Seaside Spray Colour Challenge 4

Hello and welcome to Week 4 of my Stampin’ Up! Seaside Spray Colour Challenge. If you have missed the previous projects you can find them here… Week 1, Week 2 and Week 3. This week’s colour combination is: Seaside Spray, Pear Pizzazz and So Saffron. The decided to use the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane Stamp Set as it’s a while since I’ve played with it (and it’s lovely).

Stampin' Up! Daisy Lane Card by Helen Chapman Handmade Crafts

Let’s make it…

The (standard A6) card base is created from Whisper White Thick cardstock. This is followed by a layer of Whisper White cardstock measuring 9.5 x 13.9 cm, which forms the main card front.

Onto the card front I have stamped the foliage image, repeatedly, in Pear Pizzazz ink down the right hand side of the card front. The sentiment (It’s Your Time To Shine) is stamped, repeatedly, in So Saffron ink down the left hand side of the card front. I have used multiple generations of stamping for the sentiment.

The large daisy is stamped twice in Seaside Spray ink and the smaller daisy is stamped four times. These are cut out using the coordinating Daisy and Medium Daisy Punches. They are then layered together in pairs and adhered to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. You can see from the photo that I have gently shaped the petals of the smaller daisies to add dimension.

The final touch is provided by a few Elegant Faceted Gems (Pearlescent White). These are a great way to add a really subtle hint of sparkle.

What do you think to my Seaside Spray Colour Challenge 4 Card?

Both the current sets of In Colours are fabulous and Seaside Spray is one of my favourites from the 2019-2021 Collection. I hope you like my Seaside Spray Colour Challenge 4 Card and the re-visit to the Daisy Lane Stamp Set.
