Granny Apple Green Bonus Project

Hello and welcome to the final instalment of my Granny Apple Green Colour Challenge. As there are 5 Tuesday in June, you get a bonus project this month! If you have missed the previous Granny Apple Green Colour Challenges, you can find them here… Week 1, Week 2, Week 3 and Week 4. This week I have created a Meant To Be Watercolour Gift Tag to share with you.

Stampin' Up! Meant To Be Watercolour Gift Tag by Helen Chapman Handmade Crafts

Let’s make it…

The gift tag base is created from a piece of Fluid 100 Watercolour cardstock measuring 10 x 5 cm. This is then shaped using the Scalloped Tag Topper and Detailed Trio Punches.

I applied water to the tag using a Water Painter and then applied Granny Apple Green, Just Jade and Misty Moonlight inks, allowing them to blend slightly.

The striped heart from the Meant To Be Stamp Set is stamped three times, in Granny Apple Green, Just Jade and Misty Moonlight ink onto Whisper White cardstock and cut out using the coordinating Stitched Be Mine Die.

The sentiment is heat embossed in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder onto Misty Moonlight cardstock and cut out using a die from the Stitched So Sweetly Die Set. One of the hearts is adhered to the sentiment piece using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. The whole piece os then adhered to the tag using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The remaining hearts are adhered to the tag using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the final touch is provided by a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

Love What You Do!

Hello and welcome! Today I have a card for you which was created for the Global Design Project Challenge #206. This week is sketch challenge. You can find out more about these challenges and see inspiration from the Design Team here.

I have a feeling that this offering might divide opinion! In fact, when I first decided on the colour scheme I wasn’t sure myself! But now I love it!

I’ve stuck very closely to the sketch as I thought I’d already gone pretty out-there with the colour combination.

Let’s make it…

The card base is Basic Black cardstock and I have adhered another layer of Basic Black cardstock on top of that. There is then a strip of Basic Grey DSP adhered to this layer, followed by a length of Copper Trim which is held in place using Tear and Tape on the back of the Basic Black layer.

I have stamped three of the small hearts from the Meant to Be stamp set in the NEW Delicata Celestial Copper ink (which is fabulous). This ink can be found in the Stampin’ Up! Autumn / Winter catalogue and is available in Celestial Copper, Golden Glitz and Silvery Shimmer. Don’t they all sound amazing?! Well, from what I’ve seen, they are! Note: Refills will also be available, hooray – you’re going to need them.

The sentiment piece is created from a 2″ circle cut from Basic Black cardstock using the 2″ Circle Punch, layered onto a 2.25″ circle cut from Basic Grey DSP cut using the 2.25″ Circle Punch. Again I have used the small heart stamp from Meant to Be and the Celestial Copper ink. The sentiment itself is from the Love What You Do Stamp Set. The sentiment piece is adhered using dimensionals.

The final touch is provided by another heart from Meant to Be, stamped in Celestial Copper ink and die cut using the Stitched Be Mine die set.

Until next time…
